Easter: Free Liya Sharibu, Says LCCN Archbishop
Archbishop Panti Filibus Musa shared solidarity to all those who suffer for their faith. He sent condolences to families of those who have died. He saluted those who refused to give on their faith.
The Archbishop was speaking today at the ArchCathedral of the Lutheran Church of Christ in Nigeria LCCN in Numan. As part of his Easter message the church leader called on the Christians to be firm in their faith in Jesus Christ.
He particularly mentioned that if Liya Sharibu is held in captivity for her faith all the Christians are not also free. He said no one is free if there is one of the Christians in captivity because of her faith. The Archbishop called for the immediate release of Liya and the remaining Chibok girrls.
“It is a national disgrace that this girl is being held because she confess her faith in Christ.” His Grace called on the Christians to never give up. “they can destroy this body but our Eternal life they cannot, let us be inspired by the message of Easter to walk in contradictions to works of darkness and evil.”
Earlier in the service the Hama Bachama, Homon Honest Stephen Irimiya said the Lord has been the one watching over the land. Homon Irmiya called on the youths to be followers of elders. He thanked God for protection and the relative peace being enjoyed. He although acknowledged that there were skirmishes in some parts but everything was under control. He thanked the church for standing in prayers.
