Anglican church comments

There are certain things even our culture abhors. Homosexuality is against the scriptures. We cannot be party to any doctrine that is against the scripture.

 

Rt Reverend Innocent Ordu, Bishop of the Diocese of Evo , Province of Niger Delta, speaking to news men about same-sex marriage, says “it is unbiblical.”

He was speaking in preparation of the synod of the Diocese of Evo , Province of Niger Delta.

Ordu said “Church of Nigeria is part of the global Anglican Community. We are a biblically-based church. There are certain things even our culture abhors. Homosexuality is against the scriptures. We cannot be party to any doctrine that is against the scripture. We have looked at the Bible. Bible abhors it; we cannot be part of it.”
