Rev. Bright Emenike, the District Pastor, Aba Headquarters of the Seventh Day Adventist, has admonished secondary students to desist of from immoralities, lesbianism and homosexual practices in schools.
Emenike gave the warning during the end-of-session thanksgiving service for students of Total Education Development Academy (TEDA) on Saturday.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the service held at the school chapel at Eke-Owerri in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia.
The cleric, who presided over the service, decried the alarming rate of homosexual and lesbian practices among school children.
He warned that anyone who indulged in such an abominable habit was not only destroying his or her future, but also making himself or herself an enemy of God.
Speaking during the sermon, he said: “It is unfortunate that homosexuality and lesbianism have become common among school children.
“The Bible says this habit is an abomination and so it is condemnable. It is an abomination to hear that one is a lesbian or a gay,” he stressed.
He admonished any student or group practicing such devilish act to desist from it and draw closer to God.
According to him, such sinful habit can be conquered through prayer and self-control.
Emenike also advised parents to always draw closer to their children and monitor what they do in and out of school.
“Such time is not for punishment, which can drive away vital information, rather it is a time to help them conquer such evil practice,” he said.
Meanwhile, the service witnessed the dedication of little Miss Melody Isaac.
Mr Isaac Ndudirim, the girl’s father expressed gratitude to God for the presentation of his second child.
“God gave us this child and we are bringing her back to him,” said Ndudirim, the head of Technical Department of the school. (NAN)
