The Diocesan Bishop of Lagos, Rev. Adebola Ademowo, says proliferation of churches with attendant spread of false doctrines has become a major source of concern to the Christian faith.

As opposed to the virtues handed down by Christ, Ademola lamented that homosexuality, ‘prosperity gospel’, teenage pregnancies, high rate of divorce, ‘political correctness’ and corruption had become the order of the day among Christians.

The Dean Emeritus of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, therefore, said there was a need for well-meaning individuals and people with high moral standards to rise up “and swim against these tides of unwholesomeness.”

Ademola made this call on Thursday while briefing pressmen in Lagos on the events lined up for the first session of the 33rd Synod of the Diocese of Lagos.

The Synod with the theme, “Marks of the Church,” is scheduled to hold between Sunday, May 1 and Thursday, May 5, 2016.

It will kick off at 4pm on May 1 with an opening service holding at the Cathedral Church of Christ, Marina, Lagos and followed on May 2 by the official opening service where the Lagos State Governor, Akinwunmi Ambode, would be giving an address.

Ademola said the choice of “Marks of the Church,” as the theme of the 33rd Synod’s was to reiterate that “the Diocese of Lagos and the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) will continue to stand for the biblical orthodoxy and remain unrelenting in its advocacy” in the face of false doctrines proliferation.

“We are today living in an age in which there is little commitment to anything or anyone. We are daily witnesses to the challenges of deviations from the peregrinations totally different from what Christ, the early church fathers and political builders of our nation state shed their blood to build and laid down their lives to preserve,” he said.

He also described the Synod theme as “a fearless call, made in love, for all of Christendom to uphold the sanctity of God’s word as encapsulated by the works and practices of the early church and fathers which have now been committed to all of us.”

He said the timing of the programme was strategic as it was close to the first inauguration anniversary of the “Muhammadu Buhari/Yemi Osinbajo administration; and we shall be turning to our awesome God for His intervention.”
