Reverend Tajan Moltok, the Jos Resident Pastor of Shepherd House Assembly International, has described same sex marriage as a taboo against God.
The cleric stated this during his sermon titled: “The deception of not growing spiritually” during the church service on Sunday in Jos.
He said that God made man to be married to a woman and not vice versa, saying that the current advocacy on same marriage was a ploy to deceive God’s children from deviating from His instructions and involving in an abomination.
He admonished the congregants to be careful of their associations as bad company corrupts the mind and could lead them to go astray from God’s word.
He urged parents to inculcate moral values to their children and monitor them closely, especially the association they keep and the places they visit.
‘’Parents be close to your children, get to know their activities. Wrong association breeds destruction,’’ he said.
Besides, Moltok encouraged the congregants to grow spiritually as it is a critical factor for their productivity and defence ammunition against life challenges.
He said that the plans of the devil was to deceive believers of God’s salvation and to cause doubt through their interrogation on why they experience difficulties in life.
He said that Christians should put their trust in God in all situations to deliver them from difficulties, saying some of them could be to reprimand them from wrong or build their spiritual lives.
The cleric also admonished the congregants not to condemn people and discourage them from having a quality relationship with God, but encourage them to have fellowship with God and his followers.
‘’Many people condemn as if they are angels. You have a plank and you want to remove the speck in someone’s eyes,’’ he said. (NAN)
