Nigerian author and social media influencer, Reno Omokri has condemned the Methodist Church in Nigeria for ordaining a female bishop.

Recall that the church had announced the ordination of Right Reverend Nkechi Nwosu as the Bishop of Jos on Sunday, January 22.

Nwosu was ordained as the Bishop of Jos at the Christ Methodist Cathedral Church in Jos by the Archbishop of Kaduna, Most Reverend Joseph Nnonah.

Reacting to the ordination, Omokri asked where ordaining a female bishop is approved of in the scripture.

He pointed out that Christ had female followers who donated money to his ministry yet he did not name them amongst his 12 apostles.

Also, Omokri said that Apostle Paul had female followers who sponsored his ministry but he didn’t make any of them an elder.

He added that Christians doing things that are not in accordance with the scriptures is why “Islam will continue to outgrow us.”
