The church has been turned to a place where all manner of unwholesome behavior are being practised. Most church leaders engage in abuse of children whiles others go after married women to satisfy their s3xual urge.
Retired Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Most Rev. Stanley Ntagali has fallen victim to adultery and has since been suspended from church, Uganda Radio Network reports yesterday.
Prior to his suspension, he was the 8th Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Uganda. Ntagali, 65, handed over to Kazimba on March 1, 2020 after reaching the retirement age.
A letter dated, 13th January, 2021 alleged that the retired Archbishop Ntagali has been involved in an extra-marital affair with a married woman. The letter adds that the bishop acknowledged involving in the act.
“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.
The letter acknowledged that its members who are numbering over 13 million have their own moral shortcomings but the leadership are not supposed to be like them. The leadership are supposed to be held to high moral scrutiny.
The leadership has communicated the suspension to the retired Archbishop and has therefore barred him from performing any priestly activities.
The letter also encouraged the Christian community to send prayers to the families for them to repent and desist from gossiping about the incident.
“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.
