CAN PRESIDENT: Churches In Nigeria Lack Discipline

Rev.-Samson-Ayokunle CAN

The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Rev. Samson Ayokunle has lamented over the prevalence of sexual immorality, gluttony, and financial impropriety in churches in the nation.

He blamed the sad developments to a lack of discipline among churches. He expressed his sadness as he states that money has become the god of many Christians, and the church leaders are not left out.

Rev. Ayokunle, who is also the President of the Nigerian Baptist Convention (NBC), said these while giving a speech at the ongoing virtual convention of the church. He said;

“The church is in a state where lack of discipline has led to many instances of sexual immorality, gluttony, financial impropriety, laziness, court cases, etc.

“The name of the Lord is being maligned in our society today because of the way Christians are behaving. Obscene dressing and all forms of impurities are happening in our midst.

“Some Christians cannot be trusted for any noble assignment. There appears to be no difference between them and the unbelievers.

“Money, in particular, has become the god of some (if not many) Christians, including Church leaders! What a shame to the Church!

“The Lord of the Church is sad concerning the state of the Church. We are robbed of our powers and molested by the children of Satan because of our careless living!”

“It is through discipline that we would remain holy and enter the kingdom of God! Hence this year’s Convention is a call to self-examination as individuals, family, church, Convention.

“we have shown discipline and exercise discipline in areas where we lack such.”
