Any Church Owned by One Man is Not the Church of Christ, Pope Does Not Own Catholic Church-Nigerian Priest

  • A Nigerian Catholic priest has said churches cannot be operated like family estates that are owned by individuals that decide who takes over
  • According to him, churches that have succession problems or where pastors hand over to their family members cannot be the church of Christ
  • Nigerians are reacting to his sermon with many of them sharing his views while others say he was looking for serious trouble

Any church where a single individual runs the show as the owner cannot be called the church of Christ. That's the gospel according to Reverend Father Oluoma Chinenye John.

He said churches owned by individuals are not the church of Christ. According to the priest, churches where there is a succession crisis or where the pastor hands over to the wife or children do not qualify as a church of Christ.
