Esther Ajayi, founder of Love of Christ Generation Church (LOC), has asked religious leaders to accept blames for the present moral decadence among the youths in the country.
Speaking at a press briefing in Lagos on Thursday, Ajayi urged religious leaders to work with the government in ensuring that those who visit places of worship receive messages of moral uprightness.
She said religious leaders and traditional rulers have a special role to play in sustaining peace in the country.
Speaking on the church’s forthcoming annual programme tagged “Comforter 2019”, Ajayi said the fundamental objective is to bring the Celestial and Cherubim and Seraphim churches together to pass a message to the world.
“I am happy to inform you that the 2019 edition of the annual programme is slated to hold in the in our Motherland Lagos Nigeria at Tafawa Balewa Square on the 20th of July,” she said.
“The General Overseer and other men of God will be on ground to breathe anointed fragrance into the lives of the people. God is set and willing to give His people double portion of anointing that will break them away from the bondage of captivities from the kingdom of darkness, the last year’s edition of the programme recorded lots of testimonies and there are clear messages from God that this year’s edition will increase in all ramifications.
“May I use this opportunity to urge the nation’s political leaders to preach tolerance and lay emphasis on things that unite us as a country rather than ones that has the potentials to cause disharmony and disaffection.
“Religious leaders and traditional rulers particularly have a special role to play in ensuring that what remains of peace in the country is jealously sustained. Religious leaders should however, readily accept blames for the present moral decadence among the youths because it appears they have failed in their roles as the set of people to mould the future for the youths, they should therefore work in unison with the government in ensuring that those that visit places of worship have messages of moral uprightness consistently drummed into their ears.
“Youths that excel in academic endeavours should be celebrated in churches and mosques to encourage others and get it registered in their subconscious minds that excellence is appreciated rather than the regular celebration of those with the financial powers. I seek your unflinching support and prayer in easing the tasks ahead.”
