Shun prosperity preaching, Catholic Bishop tells priests

Catholic priest kidnapped in Anambra

The Catholic Bishop of Ekwuluobia Diocese, in Anambra, Most Reverend Peter Okpaleke, has urged priests to shun prosperity and commercial preaching in churches.

Okpaleke made the call on Saturday during the 51st Convocation of the Bigard Memorial Seminary, Enugu.

Speaking in a lecture titled “Igbo Catholicism in 2035,” Okpaleke said Igbo Catholicism would suffer negative bias due to changings in the world.

According to him, we are now witnessing neo- Christianity which is the other side of Pentecostalism, most especially, the prosperity version of it.
