Anglican Bishop Bars Congregants Without PVC From Receiving Holy Communion

Bishop Mogekwu gave the order in his sermon on Sunday on the occasion of the Christian Community Platform prayer conference, held at the Great Anointing Favour Bible Church International Incorporated, Effurun, Delta State.

He urged Deltans to ensure they register to vote at elections so as to enthrone good governance, adding that Christians must actively get involved in politics to enthrone good governance at all levels.

The Bishop maintained that “if men who are righteous and fear God are in power, the people rejoice”. He charged the people of Delta to make sure that at all levels of governance, men who fear God are in authorities.

On his part, the Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) and coordinator of the CCP in the Patani Local Government Area of Delta State, Very Reverend Fr. Kofa Ithanasius, of St. Benedict Catholic Church Patani, insisted that “it is a sin not to register to vote”.

He explained that children of God should not murmur and complain when men who do not have the fear of God are in power when they, on their own, refused to be involved in politics.

He said, “Pastors should ensure their members get their PVC before they take their Communion and do other worship services in the household of God.

“As Communion is important to us as Christians, which makes us healthy, spirit-filled, and to be very strong, it is such with the PVC which makes us enthrone good governance at any level”.

He prayed for the spirit of God to continue to direct the affairs of the state, all children of God across the state to be committed to the things of the spirit and as well make the right decisions while choosing their leaders.

Meanwhile, a presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina has revealed that he stopped attending church because the pastor was always criticizing President Muhammadu Buhari.
