THE Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor has called on Christians to continue to have faith in the resurrection of Christ because it is the base of the Christian faith.
Bishop Ezeokafor made the call during his pastoral visit to St Mathew’s Catholic Church Amawbia, in Awka South Local Government Area.
Bishop Ezeokafor while encouraging people to repent from their evil ways warned that there is no repentance in the grave and noted that the resurrection of Jesus Christ is true evidence that the faithful will rise again on the last day and warned Christians against joining secret cult noting that it is difficult to come out once entered.
