LCC Cautions Christians, Church Leaders
As the debate on Christianizing Liberia continues amongst Liberians, the umbrella organization of the Church, the Liberian Council of Churches has called on all Christians and Church Leaders to stop the media attack on each other. In a statement released yesterday by the Council, it stated that it has already started a national consultation with Church Leaders by setting up a 12-man team to study the implications taken by Liberians in Gbarnga to make Liberia a Christian State.
The statement further stated that the Council of Churches will immediately inform the general membership of the Church and all its ecumenical partners of its decision on the matter.
The statement concluded by calling on all Liberians to give their full participations to this year’s National Fast and Prayer Day service which will be held tomorrow, Friday, April 10 at the Providence Baptist Church beginning at 10:A.M. below is the full statement:
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! 2 It is like the precious ointment upon the head, which ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; 3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. [PSALM 133]
The Liberian Council of Churches (LCC) is calling on all Liberians to exercise the highest degree of restraint in the interest of peace and tranquility as we debate recommendations coming from the Constitution Review Committee (CRC) Validation Conference recently held in Gbarnga, especially the much-talked about suggestion to declare Liberia a Christian State. The Liberian Council of Churches is seized of this matter and has commenced consultations with church leaders from across the Christian community, government, national and international partners, amongst others.
In a meeting with the Christian community today, April 7, 2015 at the First Presbyterian Cumberland Church on Broad Street, the Liberian Council of Churches especially called on church leaders to avoid openly attacking each other in the media as Liberia debates whether or not the country should be voted as a Christian state. The Council has therefore constituted a 12-man committee to study the implications of such decision and report to the general membership of the church in order to inform the Council and its ecumenical partners’ decision on the matter.
Meanwhile, the Liberian Council of Churches (LCC) is calling on all Liberians to attend and fully participate in this year’s National Fast and Prayer Day service to be held on Friday, April 10, 2015 at the Providence Baptist Church beginning at 10:00AM to give God the glory for defeating Ebola virus disease in the country. The intercessory and thanksgiving service is being under the theme: TO GOD BE THE GLORY with Scripture text: Psalms 126:3.
