The Anglican Bishop of Makurdi Diocese in Benue State, Bishop Nathan Nyom, has called on Christians in the county to always strive to lead honest lives.
The clergyman, who spoke at the 34th anniversary and dedication of the national headquarters auditorium of the Faith Women Fellowship (FWF) International Ministries in Makurdi, lamented that the honesty of moderate Christians in Western countries was more than that of those in Nigeria, who spend most of their time in the Church.
Nyom also accused many pastors as well as other leaders of being dishonest to their followers and the nation.
He said many of them had escaped being jailed for their dishonesty because of weak administration of justice in the country.
“If the legal system in Nigeria were working well, many of us would have ended up in prison,” he said.
The bishop further described the Christianity of Nigerians to be about 1000 metres wide and one feet deep.
Earlier, in her welcome address, President and Founder, FWF ministries, Evangelist Lydia Idoko, thanked God for the awesome things He has done in the Ministry in the past 34 years.
She said: “The best thing to do in your life is to learn to be grateful to God because it is not of he that runs but of God that shows mercy.’’
