Watch Photos For Largest Statue of Jesus Christ in African
Before we show you pictures of the unveiling of the largest statue of Christ on the African continent, we do not aim at these words to insult or attack but to patch!
Many, unfortunately, believe many Christians and non-Christians believe that the Apostolic Church. And specifically Catholicism glorifies the statues or claims that we worship idolatry, stone images, and worship.
All this nonsense is empty rhetoric and a misunderstanding of Catholic doctrine.
I began with these words to emphasize that the Apostolic Church does not worship statues or prostrate to idols as heretics claim. These statues and images represent the person no more and no less.
Every critic knows that we as Christians worship the person of the Lord Jesus Christ alone and worship him alone because he is the true God. All these statues and icons in our view symbolic.
Now let us return to our subject and display these images of the statue of Christ placed in a churchyard in southeastern Nigeria. Despite the terrorism and attacks against the Christians of Nigeria, this did not prevent them from continuing to declare their love for Jesus and their attachment to their Christian faith, which carries the banner of love, forgiveness, and peace.
💠 The unveiling of the statue of Christ
On Friday, the largest statue of Jesus Christ was unveiled on the African continent, particularly in southeastern Nigeria. The statue is carved from white marble and shows Jesus Christ barefoot with arms extended and open as if inviting everyone to him. More than 100 priests and thousands of Catholic faithful participated in the event.
The statue is said to weigh about 40 tons at a height of 9 meters. And is believed to be the largest in the African continent. The project was carried out by a Chinese company founded by a Nigerian businessman. The African continent is considered the world’s first in the growth and prosperity of Christianity, according to news agencies reports, it joins hundreds of Muslims every day who leave their religion and convert to Christianity.
