By George Ariegwe
HIS ROYAL MAJESTY Dr. Ovie Richard Ogbon [JP] the Ohworode of Olomu Kingdom has advised Anglican Clergy men not to emulate some new generation churches’ style of preaching.
The Olomu monarch who also doubles as the Chairman of Urhobo Traditional Rulers Forum gave this advice recently at his Palace, in Ogoni, Olomu Kingdom in Ughelli South Local Government Area when Most Rev. FJ Imaechal (JP), the Archbishop of Bendel Eccesiatical Province, Anglican Communion paid him a courtesy visit.
According to the monarch who will be clocking one hundred and three years (103) by January 20, 2020, some of the new generation churches preach prosperity instead of Christ’s gospel of salvation.
The Ohworode of Olomu Kingdom while commending the Anglican clergymen for holding a peaceful election that led to the emergence of Archbishop Henry Odutoba, the new Primate Elect, described Anglican clergymen as highly educated persons which he sees as a boost to the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
He noted that for along time now, the Olomu people had been desiring to have a higher institution when God finally directed great men of God to Ogoni-Olomu Kingdom which gave birth to the Christian Centre at Ogoni Olumu, adding that the citing of the Christian Centre necessitated the visit of these great men of God.
He said, Olomu Kingdom which is the most peaceful Kingdom in Delta State with over 16 communities can boost of over 100 churches.
The monarch while congratulating the Archbishop for the unity that exist among them, disclosed that he had been a member of Anglican since 1936.
Responding, His Grace, Most Rev. F.J. Imaechal while commending the monarch for converting many chiefs to accept Christ in his Kingdom, pointed out that the monarch’s reign has brought peace and blessings to the people of the Kingdom.
The Archbishop explained that Anglican has been able to introduce scholarship scheme for those who want to further their education and that is why their clergy men have been doing well.
He reminded that the great commandment of Jesus Christ is love while the great commission is go into the world and make disciple of all nation.
Among those who accompanied Most Rev. Imaechal to the palace were Rt. Rev. Blessing Irefeta, Rt. Rev. Cyril Odutemu, Rt. Rev. Christian Ideh, Rt. Rev. Benjamin Ememeze, Rt. Rev. Jolly Iyepa, Rev. Jacobo Bada and others.
