New Rule! Anglican Church Takes Anti-Homos*xuality Oath

0
An Anglican church in Abuja on Sunday has made his members
take an oath according to Tribune during their swearing-in as members of the
Parish Church Council (PCC). They were made to confess that they are not
homos*xuals or bis*xual and if at all they later turn into one while still
working for God that may His wrath fall upon them. The church said it decided
to introduce this, because things are changing so fast and we now have homos*xuals
everywhere which shouldn’t be so. Below is how Tribune is reporting it.

Anglican Communion has introduced a clause in its
constitution subjecting members, who intend to hold positions in church, to
take an oath of allegiance to God denouncing homos*xuality.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the public
denunciation took place in Abuja on Sunday at St. Matthews, Maitama, during the
swearing-in of new members of the Parish Church Council (PCC).
The Vicar of the church, Ven. Ben Idume, who administered
the oath to members of the PCC, said the church recognised that those with such
s*xual orientation needed help and counselling.
“But they would not be allowed to hold any position in
church,’’ he said.
It also banned bis*xuals from holding any church office.
The text of the vow reads: “I declare before God and his
Church that I have never been a homos*xual/bis*xual or (have repented from
being homos*xual/bis*xual) and I vow that I will not indulge in the practise of
homos*xuality/bis*xuality.
“If after this oath I am involved, found to be, or profess
to be a homos*xual/bis*xual against the teachings of the Holy Scriptures as
contained in the Bible.
“I bring upon myself the full wrath of God and subject
myself willingly to canonical discipline as enshrined in the constitution of
the Church of Nigeria, so help me God.’’
One of the oath-takers, Mr Lucky Erhaikhuemen, 43, the
Vicar’s warden of the church, said two decades ago the oath would have been of
no significance in the Church of Nigeria.
“But with what is happening in Western countries and the
churches there, there is a lot of pressure on church leaders and members here
to compromise the teachings of the church.
“The oath is a guide and warning that those in leadership
positions in the church must uphold scriptural teachings.
