Anglican bishop condemns lack of reverence in worship places

From Nigeria-

The Anglican Bishop of Ekiti West Diocese, the Rt. Rev. Rufus Adepoju, has frowned at what he described as unwholesome practices in churches in recent times, stressing that God is not happy seeing that fake pastors now preside over the church of God while worshipers have turned the church to mere social gathering.

The Bishop, who was speaking at the 7th Synod of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Diocese of Ekiti West, held in the ancient town of Efon Alaaye, Ekiti State, lamented that such practices have no basis in the Bible.

The bishop warned that those he referred to as “fake pastors” were taking advantage of the situation to wreak havoc on the body of Christ.

“It is obvious that the word (of God) today is diluted and polluted with a lot of heresies which are hindering Christians from standing firm for the true gospel.

“There are a lot of things that are militating against Christians and making them to doubt God, as if the God of our fathers has changed, whereas it is their unbelief and doubt that are causing a lot of them to go to mountains, valleys, watersides, occult groups and even to the extent of backsliding to paganism.
