Nigeria: Sex With Animal is Negative New Level - Oritsejafor

NATIONAL President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Pastor Ayodele Oritsejafor, has described as negative the bill passed by the United States of America (USA) permitting human beings to have sex with animals.

'They call it civilisation. Something is wrong,' he insisted.

Oritsejafor, who was a guest speaker at the just concluded Holy Ghost congress of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, thanked and praised the country's upper legislative chamber, the Senate, for refusing to be intimidated by the international community, and rejected the bill on same sex marriage.

He wondered what the international community meant by human right when people cannot have water to drink, eat three square meals a day, and do not have electricity.

In his message titled 'A new level,' he said that when God commanded Jacob to arise and go to bethel, (Genesis 35 verse 1), which is the house of God, He was literally saying 'arise and go to a new level.'

Oritsejafor urged Nigeria and Nigerians to enter a new level in all aspects of life.

He disclosed that an altar is a place where new levels are birthed, saying that it takes the power of sacrifice to activate an altar, adding that there are two kinds of sacrifices: the sacrifice of righteousness as recorded in Psalms 4 verse 5, which Romans 12 refers to as 'living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

If in your life, the works of the flesh are ruling and controlling, then your sacrifice is a dead one. But if the fruit of the spirit is being manifested, then your sacrifice is a living one,' he emphasised.

He defined idolatry as anything that takes the place of God in a man's life. Such things like sex, money and inordinate ambition to occupy a high position at any cost.

He frowned at a situation whereby people make sex their God, which informs the passage of such bill on sex with animal.

Oritsejafor lamented that 90 per cent of the wealth in Nigeria is in the hands of only one per cent of the populace.
