Nigerian Anglican Church Refuses To Join The Rest To Approve Gay Marriage and Consecration of Gay Bishops!

The Anglican Church of Nigeria has pleaded for “special status” in the worldwide church to allow it to maintain its stance on homosexuality.

Nigeria has also announced it is to boycott the next meeting of Anglican Church leaders, further deepening the split over homosexuality.



The Nigerian primate, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, said the province, the largest in the worldwide Anglican Communion, will boycott next month’s Anglican Consultative Council meeting in Lusaka, Zambia.

The Nigerians are angry that delegates from The Episcopal Church plan to attend the meeting and vote, in spite of having “consequences” imposed by the recent Primates Meeting over their approval of gay marriage and consecration of gay bishops.

In his strongly-worded statement, Archbishop Okoh pleads for a “special status” within the Anglican Communion for provinces that continue to uphold the traditional biblical standard on marriage and homosexuality.

He compares it to Prime Minister David Cameron’s request for “special status” in the European Union for the United Kingdom.

And he accuses liberal provinces of using “subtle blackmail” to “coerce” conservative provinces such as his into joining the “straitjacket of the revisionists”. He says: “Somehow, they are succeeding!”



Nigeria was one of the provinces that protested against the consecration of the gay American bishop Gene Robinson, that boycotted the 2008 Lambeth Conference and helped set up the Global Anglican Future Conference in Jerusalem that same year.

Nigeria has also broken communion with Canada and the United States over the issue, but attended the January Primates meeting in Canterbury in the hope of seeing discipline imposed on liberal provinces.

However, although some voting rights were withdrawn from the US church, Archbishop Okoh says the restrictions had turned out to be “hollow”.

He says in the statement: “During the Canterbury meeting itself, the way and manner in which those who hold the orthodox view of human sexuality and marriage were spoken of by the authorities, and denounced as ‘homophobic’, left none in doubt that we were in the wrong place. In fact, the authorities believe that patience was being exercised to enable the communion to bring up the scripture-believers gradually to embrace the homosexual doctrine.”

He said the future for the orthodox was as a result uncertain.

“In summary, as long as we are now candidates for whom every opportunity in the Anglican Communion should be explored to gradually teach us to embrace the new sex culture, it will be unwise to deliberately walk into a well-prepared camp of recruitment, blackmail, indoctrination and toxic relationship.”

Am proud to be a member of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion)
I vehemently stand with Primate of Church of Nigeria. Those who stand the holy bible upside down should be ready for the consequences. Please remain Christ's ambassador, upholding His principles no matter their rhetorics and subtleties. God will enable and be with you.
I hear you my brother.

Christians are light & salt n this world so we are empowered to light the truth even among the Muslimuslims & fellow Christians who have gone crazy about the things of this world. The end is getting nearer get prepared for Jesus
CONGRATULATIONS & BRAVO ? TO ALL NIGERIAN ANGLICANS or EPISCOPALIANS!!! THE "CHURCH WITH INTEGRITY", THE BIBLE-BELIEVING, JESUS-BELIEVING AND THE GOD-LOVING, PRACTICAL CHRISTIANS WORLDWIDE ? IS SO PROUD OF YOU INDEED! THANKS FOR TEACHING THE "WESTERN", LIBERAL AND "SERVE-GOD-AS-IT-PLEASES-YOU", CARNAL AND LARGELY "SODOMITE", WESTERN "CHURCH" - THE "BIBLE-UNBELIEVING" (AND largely "Bible-DISOBEYING" Western Christians) A GREATER AND BETTER "SUNDAY SCHOOL" LESSON!!!!! A m e n & A m e n & A m e n & A m e n & A M E N !!!!!!! Always your "Village" Brother With His Love & Uncompromising Kingdom Purposes, NarBerNar Kwaku-Teacher, N'Eje Ntabea, Adonkwanta, Eastern Region, Ghana http://www.sundayadelajablog.com/9110-2/
Thank God for your uncompromising character. We are proud of you. God will see us through unpolluted IJMN, Amen.
Many thanks for your universal condemnation of western Christians: just how do you justify such condemnation with Jesus teaching to love your neighbour as yourself, or Paul's teaching about no condemnation. Are my humble attempts to serve God with faithful prayer, study and christian action worth nothing to you? And have you decided on God's behalf that they are also worth nothing to God? Let's pray together, brother, for what is best.
I Praise The Lord Jesus Christ For The Bishop Of Nigeria Bishop Nicholas Okoh Who Is Standing For The Truth In The Midst Of This Demonic World,Where All Of These So Called Preachers Are Selling Their Souls To Satan And Committing Homosexual Acts And Even Getting Married And Shamelessly Denying The Word Of God,Bishop Okoh I Prayer For Your Protection ,I Know The Lord Is Please With You,For We Must Hate The Sin But Love The Sinner In Jesus Name.
May you live long enough to see the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you sir, for speaking out against the evil plans to corrupt the church of Jesus Christ. God bless you and all the other ministers
First, I must say the Church of Nigeria's stand on the homosexuality issue is very biblical, the Church is not judging anyone, nor does hatred thrive against them. secondly, Let it also be known that this is not just an Anglican issue as some might see it, but more of an "End Time" issue. Consistent affirmation/declaration of God's word is paramount in dealing with this debacle. Thank you and God bless
I am happy with Anglucan Bishop of Nigeria, they have made history .. I am a catholic member and I pray that Nigerian catholic bishops should take it up. America has distroyed the world and they will be distroyed one day along with countries that voted for the satanic act.
Beloved, thank God for the stance of Nigerian Anglican leaders. Pls keep on holding unto the scriptures. Do not bulge in the face of pressure to join the demonically orchestrated homosexuality. It is clear and loud that it is from the devil. The whole world may boycott Nigeria, we should hold unto what God says. Bravo Nigerian Christians.
The west rise against the government of Nigeria because of this gay issues and we stood by our government,the entire church in Nigeria is behind you. your lordship this matter is not negotiable it's satanic,ungodly and unbiblical.even animals don't practice it talk less of human.
It's can't stand in this country
Am very happy that gay marriage cannot penetrate Nigeria no matter what the devil tries to do. www.successincentives.blogspot.com
Where is the God of Elijah? Oh God arise
It is better to be on the Lord side than to be on the side these so called men of God who are running Satan's agenda through the church. They are sons of Belial like in the days if Eli ( 1 Samuel 2&3). They are doing the seed of I-chabod into the church that Jesus Christ purchased with His blood. The blood of Jesus will pursue and judge them unless they repent .
May God uphold all those men of God who are standing upon the truth of the Gospel. However, I will like to encourage believers to listen to prophetic message I Posted on YouTube in July 2014 entitled: Prophecy For The UK Part 3. In this prophecy the LORD said Anglican Communion will be fragmented.
"One with God is in the majority" goes the old saying.Nigeria and the rest of the GAFCON churches are standing and fighting valiantly as soldiers of Jesus Christ and should continue in spite of the wiles of Satan the devil and its demons who call themselves modern church people whose stock in trade is turning Biblical teachings and practices upside down. We don't need their money and other forms of assistance in the Church of Nigeria ( Anglican Communion ), so we are not tied to their apron strings.We and others who uphold Biblical teachings and practices shall triumph over those satanic agents, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Standing firm on what you are convinced is the right course and indeed the immortal biblical standard, even if the world and indeed the satan induced and inspired reprobates call you names and think you are wrong and outdated....now, that's the right expression of FAITH! Kudos,The Primate,Nicholas Okoh, I'm proud of you and I know heaven commends your stand with an ovation, indeed a standing ovation!
We must not allow that old serpent to succeed in his scheme of things that he started in the Garden of Eden: To distort and destroy manhood and womanhood and their destined relationship or union in a blissful marriage and family that will lead to the fulfillment of a "Heavenly Marriage and Family under the Fatherhood of God."
I pray GOD continue to strengthen and sustain the primate and the entire Anglican communion Nigeria.with the grace of GOD almighty we shall fulfill GOD'S purpose against these advocate of evil in JESUS name,Amen.
I don't follow. You are an independent province in the Anglican Communion. You make your own decisions, like every other province. Therefore you have 'special status' already. And because all provinces are independent, the Primates meeting had no authority to enforce what it purported to do. I'm proudly Anglican precisely because we tolerate differences among brothers and sisters (Rom 14).
The vast majority of Nigerian Anglicans are hypocrites, saying one thing and doing precisely the opposite. Many Nigerian church leaders are also impostors. If the Nigerian Anglican had spent the amount of energy, time and resources deployed In fighting LGBTIQ on its own internal problems (infighting amongst bishops, archbishops, clergy, etc; bishops and clerics acting with impunity; tribalism and nepotism; mediocrity, injustice, polygamy; promiscuity amongst the rank and file of both lay and clerics; poverty; and too many other vices which time and space would not permit me enumerate),, these anomalies which have become a part and parcel of its being would have become a thing of the past. Read "My Odyssey – Valedictory Lecture by Josiah Idowu-Fearon" (http://anglicandioceseofkaduna.org/blog/my-odyssey-valedictory-lecture-by-josiah-idowu-fearon-ph-d-abu/). What Idown Fearon -- an insider, like myself, an insider for over three decades -- describes here is only a tip of the iceberg. If Nigeria wishes to quit the Communion (which I think it has already done), let it be and the let the rest of the Anglican Communion remain in peace.
Hello Clement, I appreciate your observations in the Anglican Church and it's shortcomings. I want you to know that even with such, it's is absolutely shameful for us to accept the marriage of gays and ordination of gay bishops. I stand with my primate.
Bro Clement, no church is without such issues you mentioned, but that is definitely not the subject of this very update. You can't equate an issue that intends to destroy the veryvfoundation of the christian faith, with the mere misunderstanding within that can be be duely resolved. Don't be such a critic that uses a moment of honour to throw punches.
Mr Clement, are you justifying gayism and lesbianism with challenges of christians within the church. Atleast we are not becoming an animal like American society is already. I am disappointed in you for been an Anglican for 3decades and you are supporting this evil order. Let struggle to rid the church off reverends who are conformist to all your raised points and support primate Okoh than be happy with with such contemptuous issue.
It's quite unfortunate.. Hypocrisy upon hypocrisy
With due respect Clement,YOU ARE MISSING THE POINT..Your experience ( WHICH HAPPENS EVERYWHERE AND TO EVERYONE BY THE WAY) biases,prejudices notwithstanding ,the ANGLICAN CHURCH HAS DONE WHAT IS REQUIRED OF IT IN THIS PERIOD OF GAY MADNESS...I PRAY YOU WILL FIND THE HEART OF FORGIVENESS TO MOVE FORWARD & BEYOND YOUR EXPERIENCE.... Matthew 5:13-15 KJV Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. [14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. [15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
Free Piano Hi :) I found your webpage via Yahoo Search Engine while searching for free settlement letters to creditors and your post regarding news looks very interesting to me. I have a few meega websites of my own and I must say that your site is really top not…

Mr Clement i can understand your anger that the Nigerian primates are playing a double standard. Ordinarily i shldnt even comment on this bcos am a Muslim. But the issue on ground concerns everyone, and both religion has the same origin. Yes, we are on the same page on mediocrity, nepotism, tribalism, promiscuity, polygamy etc. but tell me Mr Clement whr God has destroyed a nation over all these things we hv mentioned. Its unfortunate that some of us see the holy books as story book. We think Sodom and Gomora was just a fictional story until it consumes us all. Gay and Homosexual relationship is against the natural order, against religion and it has been scientifically proven that it has to do wit psychological and mental disorder. Any whr you go this days you hear of right, himan right groups, gay right activist and all d nonsense. We gonna join hands to institute Gods right soon or Religion Right. According to the teachings of Islam, having a gay relationship can only b equated to having sex with the mother that bore you inside a place of worship. And you can not be purified no by all d water the Atlantic, pacific and indian ocean. This is our stand in Nigeria. We are united against madness. We are Gods right activist.
Great stance Nigerian Brethren! No compromise whatsoever. Contend earnestly for the old time, all-the-time faith once delivered to the Saints! Jude 6
Tank God we have people like N Okoh.The whole world cannot be mad at the same time. We must refuse to live as animals.
Thank God that the church is opposing the world Visit SUCCESS INCENTIVES
Your grace, may the grace of the Almighty continue to uphold you thanks for standing against this devilish act.
Whats happening to christian bishops all over the world? How can a crime that brought the wrath of God on sodom and gomarah be celebrated among our bishops from other countries? This gay and lesbianism is clearly condemed by God in the Bible. So where is the scripture backing this amorous sin in the Bible that American Animalism is leading the world into can be supported? Am sure a new version of the Bible by these satanic America will soon follow and they will remove every portion of the Bible that cried against this pathetic sins.
Stand up! Stand up!! For Jesus.... I am proud to be an Anglican... (Anglican Communion).
God His most Rev. Nicholas Okoh , Church Nigeria Anglican Communion and Methodist Church Nigeria. I am a Methodist but Ecumenism in Nature. The Lord will His Church more courage to stand up against immoralities that American and European Leaders intending to spread across the globe.
Who says Nigerians are not a GREAT people. We have always been and will always be. Though I am not an Anglican I and I am sure a great number of Nigerians stand tall behind you. We cannot forget the mighty servant of God Rev. Akinola. Thank you Revs. Mbang and Okoh for continuing the protest against the enthronement of evil in the Church. God Bless you all mightily
Homosexuality whether in marriage is purely sexual immorality i n the church and to the society . The society are polluted everyday because of the church. Why should the church even bargain on this matter. Can the church be light to the world throught homosexual lifestyle? Can a believer make heaven by turning the word of God upside down? when God open way for the marriage to do it man and woman ;they are turning it samesex. What these people need is repentance prayer and deliverance.
Why do they need special status? Does the Anglican Communion not offer enough space for different theological stance? Even to this day, several decades into admitting women into ordained ministry, there are still member churches that will only ordain men? So what? It is sad, that some member churches are moving forward too fast in the issue of human sexuality (but they see that as a prophetic ministry), while others find it difficult to keep up that pace. But I believe, it is something we can live with.
very important that we uphold the ordinances of God even in this perverse time. The anglican communion has done some to distinguish themself which is right. proud to be an anglican
AFRICANS FOOLING THEMSELVES SINCE THE INCEPTION OF MANKIND.WHEN ARE YOU ALL GOING TO CREATE YOUR OWN RELIGION AND EMANCIPATE YOUR SELVES FROM THE SLAVERY UNDER YOUR SLAVE MASTERS ?

Am so proud to be an Amlnglican ...... SAY NO TO SAME SEX MARRIAGE... One love to my fellow Anglicans
Thank God for being an anglican faithful.
Am not impressed
Give d church in Nigeria a new name n identity n cut off any link wit Anglican Communion. There is no communion between Light n Darkness, 2Corrint.6:14
Am really with my primate. One faith, one church, one baptism.
Gay marriage is unbiblical. I stand with Nigeria Anglican Church. Homosexuality is a disease. The America Anglican Communion are sick.
BRAVO ...GOOD NEWS....!!! THIS IS THE CHURCH THAT CHRIST HAS BUILT & IS STILL BUILDING...!!! Matthew 5:13-16 KJV Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men. [14] Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. [15] Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. [16] Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
Thank God that the Anglican Church in Nigeria did not join the rest of the world to do evil. I, for one, will never till eternity attend nor have anything to do with a satanic church that stands God's words on their heads.We are definitely in the end time that the Bible foretold.Kudos to the Anglican Church of Nigeria while I give knocks to the Satanic "Churches" of the world.
