Secular and religious leaders who give themselves to craftiness, extortion, lie-telling, sexual immorality and other acts of hypocrisy have been warned to turn a new leaf in view of the dire consequences of their actions on themselves and the entire society.
Speaking against the backdrop of growing reports of shady practices by religious leaders, the President of the God’s Kingdom Society, (GKS) the church of the living God, Brother Godwin Ifeacho, in his Freedom Day address at Okirika, Rivers State, regretted that a number of those who claim to be in the light secretly commit those same sinful acts or works of darkness which they oppose in public. “They pretend to be pious, and very much devoted to God, but in their hearts, despite all their pretensions, they are full of evil schemes. They are thus hypocrites, who put on masks or false appearances, feigning themselves to be what they are not.”
In the address entitled “There is nothing hidden that shall not be revealed” delivered on his behalf by the publicity secretary, Brother Benedict Hart, the GKS president cited examples of believers in the early church, priests, kings, and believers in the Old and New Testaments who secretly gave themselves to wicked practices or works of darkness while presenting themselves to the people as “paragons of godliness”. Such ones he said make “the mistake of many faithless and ungodly people (who) think they can by their craftiness hide things from God”.
He lamented that a number of religious leaders use the cover of darkness to involved themselves in idolatrous or occultic practices, as happened among the Jews in the days of Ezekiel the prophet when “the leaders of the people, those judicially bound to suppress idolatry ...became its ringleaders” and salved their consciences with the reasoning that “The Lord seeth us not; the Lord hath forsaken the earth”. Charging those who were merely pretending to be virtuous to repent or be exposed and humiliated sooner or later, Brother Ifeacho stated that God does not punish people immediately, not because He does not see, but to give the people opportunity to receive warning and repent so as to be saved. “Certainly in the day of judgment, nothing but meaninglessness and profound disappointment, await those who persist in wickedness, including those godless bigots who regard themselves as “secularistic materialists”, whose definition of reality has no room for spiritual things.”
A number of choral and cultural groups thrilled the audience during the occasion which was coordinated by the Branch chairman, Brother Abel Ajalaka. The God’s kingdom Society (GKS) has been observing the birth of Christ designated “Freedom Day” since the 1930s.
