The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, CBCN, has lashed out at controversial priest, Rev. Fr Ejike Mbaka who was transferred from his former parish, Christ the King, to Our lady’s Parish Emene, in the same diocese.
According to PREMIUM TIMES, addressing the church at its opening session of the CBCN on Sunday, President of the Conference, Ignatius Kaigama, condemned Mr. Mbaka’s prophecies on former President, Goodluck Jonathan stressing that the church and particularly its priests and leaders must avoid the what he regarded as the “melodramatic displays that resembles modern broadway shows.”
”Those priests who tend to compete with so-called trendy pastors to dream dreams, see visions and utter prophecies are reminded that not all dreams, visions and prophecies are revelations from God. They are sometimes the product of one’s psychological disposition, brain waves or even the result of mental fatigue and should not be confused with absolute reality,” Bishop Kaigama said.
Also in his brief remark at the introduction of guests, the Assistant Secretary General of the CBCN and Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Felix Ajakaiye, said, “When I am transferred I am transferred; no sensation should be attached.”
