Women now dress indecently to the church – Clerics Lament

An association of Christian clerics, Akwa Ibom Clergy Forum (AICF), has expressed worries over the issue of indecent dressing in some churches in the country. The group made this known at a press conference to announce its National Prayer Summit scheduled for October 27 in Lagos.

The president of the AICF, Rev. Samuel Udo, said indecent dressing constituted a moral burden to the nation, stressing that it was one of the major reasons for the country’s backwardness. According to him, “A church is supposed to be a holy place. It should not be a place to commit sins. Churches today have turned to places of abomination.

“Women now go more or less unclad to the church. Men go with earrings and other materials associated with females. It is forbidden for a man to put on what belongs to a woman, but now such things have been turned to style.” The clergy therefore, urged worshippers to be righteous in their dealing with God to avoid disaster in the country.

Another pastor, Eyo Udo, lamented that people go to church with whatever they like, without necessarily considering where they are going to.

    WHY THE LAMENT? IS IT NOT THE “CONTAINER” YOU PREACHERS OF PROSPERITY ORDERED FOR THAT HAS LANDED??? REPENTANCE MUST BEGIN FROM THE PULPIT BO.

  2. May God deliver us from their hands.

  3. this is the area our pastors like oyedepo and the rest should focus to know if they are really building a God’s kingdom or something else and not focusing on the expansion of their churches and their rising wealth and fameas a proof of Gods annoiting on their churches..i tink its better to have just one member who is following God command than millions who are astray

    • Can’t u talk without mentioning oyedepo??, am sure ur type still go around looking for s*x wv small gals,,remove d clog in ur eyes before u do to odas. Salvation is personal, stop blaiming odas for ur probs.

  4. M not suprised atol,hw can men women mix up in plas n u xpect notin like dis 2 hapn, d women mst do smtin 2 lure dere guys n d guys ar olways ready 4 dem.if u wil b allowd 2 read real bible’gospel of barnabas’ u wil c wia God Almighty did nt allow men and women mix up. Is forbiden. Dis is not d real christianity u gus r doin,bringin new new tastement. Wia r de comin 4rm is God still givin sm1 his revelations?

    • I would have called u a fool but I don’t blame u it is d religion u practice that is making u not see beyond ur nose. Which other bible are u talking about or ir it ur quran

      • I think every pastor/alfa nd parents too owe their children the teachings on decent dressings,it will go a long way in curbing many immoralities. Meanyle,Vincent u are d fool here.Everybody has his/her right to air their opinion in public forums like this,y not respond to the headline rather u come here to display Ʊя̩̥̊ dull brain. What Ȋ̝̊̅§ wrong with what the above poster wrote? If he/she Ȋ̝̊̅§ wrong in quoting the bible,u owe him the duty of enlightening him/her or beta still ignore the post bur instead u gain pleasure coming here to vomit insults. God help U̶̲̅.

  5. It is one of the fruits of westernization. we have abandoned our culture. we call it outdated way of life. MAY GOD BLESS MY PARENTS.

  6. But islam says whole of the body of female is nikadness it most covered in other to prevent her againts wt the evil of man & devil. I lv islam.

    • Shattap ur mouth,,stop making IT seem like gals dat wear hijab r not bad,,,in kaduna dey wear hijab n do prostitution!!!n u guys patronise dem!! Dan banza kawai!!!

      • atleast nothing satanic happens in the mosque, some churches in the western world have started marrying gays, they have advanced to that stage.Places of worship should be the least expected places for this kind of thing to happen. Its really sad. May Allah show you the right way.You can keep calling us banza but the truth will never change.

  13. Prophet Owoso J.A.

    The world has mingled with church and vice versa.You people should learn from the message of Christ to seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3.It is end time,some twist the bible to suit their heresies.

    My muslam brothers, i call u brothers bcos we are created by d same GOD so dont abuse any body bcos if u do gud is 4 u if u do bad is 4 u, if u tink u wil abuse somebody religion it means u dont know what u r doing christianity ddn‘t teach us to abuse some1 bcos any1 that truely d pson he/she is worshping would abuse his brother, our religion is real that is why we speak out d adtrosity our children r doing, i have had u pple talking d atrosity taking place in d mosque, does it mean that all of u r perfect? My advise 4 u is if u r going to heaven u r no going with any one so dont judge, judgement is 4 GOD not men like u.

  15. These junk journalist are author of confusion. How can u paste a picture taken at a nite club in this kind of story. If u want to compare indecent dressing in the church to that of a nite club, you have posted them side by side. Then your audience will know how to comment rather than misleading people. Your insensitivity is what the muslim commentator are feeding on and that’s y they making such blasphemy. Note that we will give account for every idle word we speak on the judgement day. And every one that cause others to sin wether thru indecent dressing or thru passing wrong information will also give account.

    • True talk.the picture is that of a party scene.you can clearly see the ladies with wine cups. Reporter,could you find such cups in the church?party halls are meant for prostitutes and that is what you normally find therein.why then using this picture for your piece? All malice.

  16. indecency IN CHURCHES, MARKETS, PARKS, HOTELS, SCHOOLS, OFFICES, HOSPITALS,SUPERMARKETS , TOWN HALLS etc IS NOT A PLEASING DEVELOPMENT.THIS LADIES ARE OUR DAUGHTERS,SISTERS, WIVES, RELATIVES, ASSOCIATES,etc AND WE ALWAYS WISH THEM WELL EXCEPT BEING LUNATICS .( MARYAM ) MARY, ( may the peace and blessings of the Lord be upon her ) APPEARS IN ALL HER PHOTOGRAPHS COVERED IN A VEIL , THEN WHY NOT BOTH MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIAN BROTHERS AND SISTERS ENFORCE A COMPLETE AND MODEST DRESS CODE ? ITALY AND FRANCE ARE AGAINST THE WEARING OF HIJAB AND ALLOWS AND LEGALLY PERMITS indecency. OUR SISTERS COPY DIRECTLY FROM THEM . CHRISTIAN SISTERS SHOULD AT LEAST COPY FROM MARY(A S ) MULIM SISTERS SHOULD WEAR COMPLETE DRESS AND HIJAB OTHER FAITHS MUST USE ANY OF THE TWO, PERIOD ? HAS ANY BODY EVER SEEN THE PHOTOGRAPH OF MARY HALF unclad ? TALK LESS OF SHORTS, BIKINIS, TROUSERS,MINI SKIRTS,WHIZZY,OR HALF br**sts OUT, ALL br**sts OUT,etc.? let us not r*pe them but ! SANCTION THEM,PUNISH THEM, STIGMATIZE THEM AND DISCOURAGE THEIR BAD ATTITUDES .IF RELIGIOUS LEADERS AND ALL ADMINISTRATORS OF COMMUNITY DISCIPLINE SHOULD CHANGE A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT, IT IS OBVIOUS AND AUTOMATIC FOR THEIR FOLLOWERS TO COMPLETELY CHANGE !

  17. Well, i must tell you that this is not the best way for proving your journalism prowess by the title you captioned. I my assertion, your malicious pictures was never captured in a church building. You are the only person that know the source of your sensual pix. May God help you in your career.

  18. Well, i must tell you that this is not the best way for proving your journalism prowess by the title you captioned.

  19. In fact BELLO HASSAN, I can see from your comments that you are a Nigerian, Cultured and Well bred. Religion is our way of communicating with God. Must we denigrate each others religion because we can’t see each others face? We should fear God. These Ladies going unclad are Lunatics, there is one COSSY ORJIAKOR worst than monkey going unclad. However, this MADNESS shouldn’t get into the places of worship and bet you, that is part of the reason God is annoyed with us in Nigeria.

  20. That picture depicts people in a social or drinking parlor and not in the Church. No lady can appear in such magnanimous indecency with her a*s exposed in this manner in the church. So avoid bad reporting. It’s true that unbelievers go to church, but that doesn’t mean they are genuine Christians.

  21. The pix and the headline don’t go hand in hand, true some ladies go to church half unclad becos they practise chritianity(religion) and refuse to be christians(Christ like) I don’t think blaming christian leaders will solve the problem but we should educate our ladies on proper dressing God help us cos its end time and u’ll see different things even as d bible has predicted!

  22. This report is from a muslim idiot who is looking for a way to mislead some fools already making inflamatry statements. Why do the muslems females now wear trousers and go to mosque on sundays. What now happen on fridays? Stupid ars holes.

    • of course that picture was not taken in a church, it is evident that it was in a club or a private party. it is only someone trying to start up something that will call that scene a church.
