My Church The Catholic Church Was Built On Rock And The Gates Of Hell shall not prevail: Rev Fada Olumna
As pleasure mounts on Catholic church of Enugu diocese eastern part of Nigeria after Rev Father Mbaka got suspended from Catholic Archdiocese. Nigeria
Most catholic church members in Nigeria seem to be divided at the moment, for now, many being in support of Rev father Mbaka critics against the Nigeria presidency and treating the Bishop of Enugu to stay clear from the God servant ”the priest”.
Many also being against Mbaka involvement in the Nigeria politic, with the opinion that Mbaka should be cautioned and possible be disciplined
Another Rev Father, popularly known as Fada Oluoma reacting to the development, in his word, My church the Catholic church was built on rock and the gates of hell shall not prevail
Below is his full message to the Catholic church faithful:
Is easier these days to start a Church, build, and monetize such Church, tell your followers that God told you this and that, that you are called by God himself and how you use to hear clearly from God, followed by all the this and that associated with the later day churchies, but you see my Church was not built on that
In his world “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock, I will build MY CHURCH; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it”. Matt 16:18
It doesn’t take much to build ANY church nowadays. A combination of charism, oratory, media hype, sensational preaching, staged or real miracle, fanciful name, choice location, “God told me or showed me” claims and novelty can get you ANY church.
If you are good at it you will have members who are too high on “piety” to notice when you double-speak and contradict yourself they will even defend your glaring inconsistency with texts from scripture. That’s how ‘ANY church’ can be built.
But you see “MY church” of Matt 16:18, it was not built on any of those things. It was not built on charismatic personalities or all the attractive things of today’s ANY CHURCH, it was built on THE ROCK.
This is the singular reason it has survived and unconquered by the gates of hell for more than 2 millennia since it was established.
And I can tell you, whatever the Church is facing today, base on what the bible told us, the gate of hell shall never prevail. the Church will always have the victory
Charismatic people have left it and gone, it has remained. Royalties, rulers, saints, sinners, good and bad alike, powerful and insignificant persons have fought it and left, it still stands.

Government from different nationals, continent all-round the world has fought against the Church and left it and gone, this is to show that no one can fight the Church ”the body of Christ” and prevail against it
MY CHURCH doesn’t depend on any individual, not even a pope no matter how charismatic or influential he is for survival and continuity. This MY CHURCH built by the Lord himself has outlived civilizations and empires.
So my dear friend, don’t let anyone make you think he’s the foundation of MY CHURCH, don’t allow a man to overthrow the position of God in your life, all men of God are man, not God of man, don’t be a fanatic instead of a believer. Believers follow and listen to MY CHURCH the body of Christ, fanatics follow personalities.
May God order our steps.
