The Archbishop of Kwara Province of Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) Olusegun Adeyemi has lamented the influence of cultism in the Church and political circles in the country.
Adeyemi who said occultism is a sin that could bar people from entering the kingdom of God expressed regrets that many Christian leaders who know and are aware of this still engage in occultic activities.
He spoke at the the commendation service held for the late first military governor of Kwara state, Brigadier-General David Bamigboye at St Barnabas Cathedral in Ilorin.
The Archbishop while saying that many clergymen were in secret cult alleged that some of them “sleep with demons on the seaside to obtain power”
He said in the political circle, occultism was also well embraced to the extent that many in the circle believe they have to belong to a secret cult before they could be successful.
Adeyemi however warned that cult membership is not what a Christian should see or maintain saying it disqualifies a person from entering heaven
He advised those maintaining the membership to quit without entertaining fear of a negative consequence as he said he knows many who have quitted and who did not suffer for their decision.
The Archbishop who also said pride and unforgiving spirit constituted bar from the Kingdom of God advised people to worship God without pride and to forgive one another.
