God’s Punishment Awaits Those Against Anti-Gay Law- Okoh

The Primate of All Nigeria Anglican Communion, Most Revd. Nicholas Okoh has said that those canvassing same-sex marriages in the country would face the punishment of God.

He was speaking in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital during the 70th birthday of his predecessor, Dr, Peter Akinola, held at the Cathedral of St. Peter, Ake, Abeokuta.

He however commended President Goodluck Jonathan for his courage in signing the anti-gay bill into law which has continued to generate reactions in some quarters in Nigeria and beyond.

According to him, those not in support of the bill are like the biblical duo, Adam and Eve who questioned God for asking them not to eat the fruits from the Garden of Eden.

His words: “Many people do not realise that what is referred to as the homosexual trouble is not the homosexual or lesbian trouble but people’s refusal to accept the scripture for what it is, authority for life and practice following God.

He added: “in the beginning, man questioned the authority of God in the garden by saying did God actually say that you should not eat the forbidden fruit. That challenge to God’s authority dethroned God’s power and enthroned man’s power.

“”So they concluded that God has no right to tell man what to do and that they were the people who knew what to do. So man set God aside and took over the command. Consequently, disaster followed”.

He said the same thing was happening today in the issue of human sexuality. “It is not about whether a man should marry a man or a woman should marry a woman, the question in the garden (of Eden) has come back again”.

Asking rhetorically, the primate said: “did God say that you should marry only a woman? Did God say a woman should marry only a man? God is wrong, we have come of age, man is right. And as in the former time, disaster followed when man dethroned God. So again it shall happen that if man decided to stick to the principle of dethroning God, He will face nothing but disaster”.

Akinola, during an interview with journalists said his journey in life had been tortuous and  rugged but the good Lord is taking him through.

Commenting on his ordeals in the hands of hoodlums who attacked him last December and took away his vehicle, he appealed to Nigerian youths to be self-reliant.

    Your Reverence – allow me to relay your foundation as you are standing on soggy ground and not The Rock. JESUS who is the Sacrifice of the whole world , died for Gays and Lesbians to be who they are and to make Heaven. Yes there are Christian LGBTs just as there are Christian blacks. ( if you had said there were Christian blacks 150 years ago the white world would not have believed you. Was it not the Pope Nicholas that issued the Papal Bull – Dum Diversas to go and enslave our forefathers just because they were black. !!

    Sir back to the issue of Same Sex relationships, yes it is true it was banned under the law of Moses , the bible tells us so and we accept it. We are not under the law of Moses as Jesus not only took on the punishment for us See Galatians 3:13 and hung on the Tree for us , BUT HE then TOOK THE LAW OF MOSES away and Established Grace (Hebrews 10 :9 ) abolishing the Ban– that is what Christianity is about , not relying on the law of Moses for our righteousness for with the Law of Moses and works NO MAN WILL BE JUSTIFIED BEFORE GOD. Galatians 2 :16 In other words the Ebor that Jesus is will not work for the person. And they that are Christians MUST NOT GO BACK under the law for there will no more Sacrifice for them, its the “a wor”?/ “e wor”? of the the Ebor!

    It is true its about the Garden and there was also another Garden – Gethsemane – where the LAST ADAM made things right and made Gays and Lesbians acceptable in the Beloved- there is no male or female in Him .

    I decree and declare the Blood of the Lamb over Nigerian LGBT – No weapons formed against you shall prosper in Jesus Name Amend here the good news Jesus the Lover of your soul who said there is NO MALE OR FEMALE In HIM Died for you to be GAY AND LESBIAN AND TO MAKE it in INTO HEAVEN.

    Ask Him into your Life and to be your Lord and Savior – PRAYER OF SALVATION”: Lord Jesus come into my Life I believe that You died for me to make it in into Heaven. You paid the penalty price for me. I receive you as my Savior in Jesus Name Amen.”

    I commit you to the Lord Jesus and ask Him to lead you to where you can get baptized by Full Immersion and receive the Holy Spirit ., because He paid FOR YOUR JUSTIFICATION AND ETERNAL LIFE in FULL.
