Adewale Martins: Mbaka May Be Barred From Preaching By Catholic by RuudVanNisteroy: 2:57pm On Jan 17
The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Adewale Martins, says the Spiritual Director of the Adoration Ministry, Enugu, Rev. Fr. Ejike Mbaka, could be banned from preaching if he continues to deviate from the doctrines and tenets of the Catholic Church.

Martins, who was appointed Archbishop of Lagos by the Pope in 2012, said this during an interview with the BBC Igbo while reacting to Mbaka’s prophecy that Hope Uzodinma would emerge as governor of Imo State.

Mbaka had on New Year’s Eve prophesied that Uzodinma would emerge as governor in 2020, a prophecy which came to pass on Tuesday when the Supreme Court sacked Emeka Ihedioha and named Uzodinma as the duly elected governor.

Reacting to the prophecy, which has stirred heated debate, the archbishop said Mbaka was under the Diocese of Enugu and did not report to him.

He, however, said if Mbaka continued in the manner he was doing things, the Catholic Church may bar him from ministering.

Martins said, “Fr. Mbaka falls under the authority of the Bishop of Enugu Diocese and therefore he has the responsibility of cautioning him. I can imagine that this must be giving the bishop some challenges.

“It must be giving him a bit of a headache and I feel sorry for him and I hope he will find some way of dealing with this matter that has been recurring. Of course, what could be done in the end is either to say, ok you receive the sanction of being stopped from public ministry. That is a possibility. If it is not done, there must be a reason.”

Martins, who was ordained a priest in 1983, said the Catholic Church does not engage in partisan politics.

He said even if Mbaka received a prophecy from God, he ought to ensure that his conduct corresponds with the scriptures and the doctrine of the Catholic Church.

The archbishop added, “It is utterly surprising that Fr Mbaka would go as far as naming one person as governor against another. It is embarrassing when you hear of priests or people in position of authority making statements that are clearly partisan.

“The position of the Catholic Church on matters that have to do with politics is not to be partisan. Of course, we as a church cannot be oblivious to political events and happenings in the country or the world at large and therefore we must speak from the point of view of principles.

“The priest who believes he has a gift of prophecy has to test whatever has been told to him in the light of the scriptures, in the light of the teachings of the church and in terms of the authority that has been given to leaders in the church.”

Martins said Mbaka’s behaviour was at variance with the teachings of the Catholic Church and he had fallen below the standard expected of priests.

Mbaka, who was ordained a Catholic priest in 1995, has been known to give many controversial prophecies.

In 2002, he prophesied that the then Governor of Enugu State, Chimaroke Nnamani, would not return to office in the election but the governor won a second term.

In 2015, Mbaka prophesied that President Goodluck Jonathan would lose to the current President, Maj Gen Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), which came true.

The man is making a mockery of Christianity. God is not an author of confusion.
He should be barred and disrobed.

So because Mbaka prophecies come to pass, the Archbishop wants to ban him from preaching? Did Mbaka make it so? No. He only saw it coming and made public what he saw, how is that his fault?

The Archbishop is simply a politician whose interest got rubbished, it wasn't done by Mbaka, so he can go chop shiit.

Rubbish! Did your Mbaka hear from God when he claimed that Buhari was God's sent? Mbaka would have made it clearer that Buhari was sent as a plague to Nigeria.

In matters like this.. An Archbishop, Rev. father, pastor, imam or Alfa.. whatever you are that feels this prophecies are a sham or scam should ask God too..

we all have access to God same as Mbaka..
God already says 'ASK'.. Abeg if you doubt simply 'ASK'

Mbaka did not see anything coming! Someone told him these things and Mr Mbaka is using it to his detriment!

Mr Mbaka might be a pastor before, but he is currently rolling with the devil. He should enjoy his loot but stop attributing these events to call of God.

Very funny.

Any attempt to stop Father Mbaka will compel him to pitch tent with the not-so popular rite of the Catholic Church.

Consequently, the Roman Catholic Church would lose because he's the most influential priest in Nigeria today

That was exactly what happened to Father Edeh.

And nobody financially supports the Catholic Church in the East like Mbaka...nobody

How does the ban stop him from prophesying

You can not take away the fact that he's been trending in Nigeria for sometime now and that makes him the most popular priest.

Why!

Is he the first man of God to affiliate with a political party.

We all know the dwarf in Sango Otta that promised to open the gate of hell is a PDP member.

The other in Ibafo goes with highest bidder. PDP few years back but now in APC.


Please leave the man, he deserves a share of the largese too.
