Must read

The Scripture Union Nigeria has issued a resounding call to the Federal Government, lawmakers, and Christian organizations across the country to stand firm against the push for the legalization of lesbianism and bisexuality, warning of the grave repercussions such measures could have on society.

Speaking at a press conference held at the union’s headquarters in Samonda, Ibadan, Wilfred Onu, the National Chairman of the union, alongside the General Director, Uwem Udoh, emphasized the urgent need to reject what they termed an “immoral and debased movement.”

Expressing deep concern over the growing acceptance of these ideas, despite clear admonitions in the Holy Bible and existing legal frameworks, Onu underscored the importance of upholding traditional Christian values and principles.

He stated, “The promotion of this ideology by some religious and political leaders, especially in the Western world, is alarming. We can no longer keep silent and allow this immoral and debased movement to destroy the fabric of our human and societal decency, values, and public morality.”

The Scripture Union of Nigeria reaffirmed its commitment to promoting biblical teachings and urged the entire Christian community to reject LGBTQ+ ideology, which it views as contrary to scriptural injunctions.

Calling on Christians and advocates of humanity to defend the sanctity of family life, Onu urged opposition against the harmful agendas of individuals, organizations, and agencies promoting these ideologies.

Furthermore, as a union dedicated to serving children, youths, and families, the Scripture Union Nigeria pledged to safeguard innocence from influences that deviate from biblical teachings, advocating for the preservation of traditional family values and marriage as defined in the Scriptures.
