A cleric, The Reverend Ejikeme F. Udorie has slammed the General Overseer of the Omega Power Ministries, OPM, Apostle Chibuzor Gift Chinyere, over his viral admonition that “If your Church Cannot Change You, Change Your Church”.
According Rev.Udorie, who is the resident Minister at Methodist Church Nigeria, Rumuigbo Local Church, Port-Harcourt, it is only the word of God that changes people and not churches. He added that anyone who the word of God cannot change, cannot be changed by any church. He further said anybody who emphasises church as a means of changing people is not using the word of God but other strange means to support his alter and ministration.
Speaking on the topic; “Emmanuel, the hope of Christians”, Rev.Udorie urged Christians to renew their hope in the benefits that the birth of Jesus Christ brings to humanity. He further advised Christians to celebrate the Christmas season in utmost godliness and avoid all manners of evil. Scriptural references for the sermon was taken from Psalms 80:1-7, 17-19; Isaiah 7: 10-16; Romans 1:1-7 and Matthew 1:18-25.
