A Retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali has reportedly been suspended from church over adultery charges.
“This adultery is a grievous betrayal on many levels. Retired Archbishop Ntagali has betrayed his Lord and Saviour, his wife and their marriage vows, as well as the faith of many Ugandans and global Christians who looked up to him to live the faith he proclaimed,” the letter sent to the Anglican Bishops under the Global Anglican Future Conference (GAFCON) reads in part.
He added that the Church of Uganda has approximately 13 million members, all of whom have ‘sinned and fallen short of the glory of God,’ as the Bible reads in Romans 3:23
He added that the Church has to hold its leaders more accountable to the standards that they are called to uphold.
In the letter, the reverend will not be allowed to perform any priestly duties such as preaching, function sacramental or represent the Church of Uganda in any way until further notice.
The Church of Uganda has been advised to send prayers to the spouses in both relationships, for repentance and healing to those who have committed adultery and for justice and forgiveness to flow.
“This is not a time for us to gossip. This is a time for repentance; a time for prayer; a time to examine our own sin and failings in humility; and a time to make all our relationships right before God,” Kazimba said.
“No one is above God’s law. We call on all who have fallen short of this standard to go before the Lord in prayer and confess your sin, repent of your ways, and make restitution to those you have hurt,” Kazimba added.
What at all is happening in this world?
These things bring shame to the Christian body.
Christians must put a stop to such behaviors as it drives people away from the house of God.
