    May God’s grace be made manifest in your life Amen….. Church shouldn’t be a bondage to people but what we see in Catholic Church is opposite, one is bond to a particular doctrine which are mostly not biblical… may God helps us all and more importantly open our eyes to know the truth amen

      can you mention a doctrine in the Catholic church that is not biblical? Do you think everything it written in the bible? no, we are all free to believe and worship whatever that is pleasing to us as humans.

    I have always said it each time i watch you on the DSTV Hour of Grace that someday most likely you will leave the catholic church, am a catholic and i adore you soo much many times i choose not to go to church and when asked why, my answer is always i will watch hour of Grace with father Edet, the dept of your massage and knowledge honestly i have not seen in any catholic priest execpt for the likes of Mbaka.

    Am with you in this. No man can fathom this God. The name of a church does not save anyone and salvation is indeed a personal thing. Making heaven is the ultimate. You are right, God first.

    Revealed. “Father Edet worked with Fr Lt Ochei at the Police Chaplaincy and worked very closely with Father Ralph Faghohun at Garki, Abuja.He bought some hectares of land with the sum of N100 million and the Bishop was not in support of it. He told the Bishop to relieve him of all his parish commitments so he can face his GRACE FAMILY MINISTRY but the Bishop cautioned him and he disobeyed. The summary is that he left the Catholic Church so he can be in charge of his ministry. He has made so much money and was lured away by that fact. This was sent by a brother priest in police chaplaincy”. So dear commenters on this forum this is the reason he quit priesthood. He will soon be like Bishop Adeboye and others with private jets and tons of money and people will flock his ministry. I am a born Catholic and will remain there. There is no lust for earthly things like money in the Catholic church but to serve God and do humanitarian things.

    You have stated your reasons and if truly called inspired you to leave den u re free to leave,ur leaving the church doesn’t mean that the church will fall.the church is standing because of the promise made by God to the church nd not because you have a certain gift. These are the signs of end time(strange things). I profess one Catholic and apostolic faith
