The Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS) on Christmas Day launched the third volume of the ‘Everlasting Gospel of Leader, Olumba Olumba Obu’ in Nigeria’s southern port city of Calabar.
The 700 page volume will compliment and not replace the Bible as reported in some quarters said the spokesman of the BCS, Christ Shepherd Edet Archibong at the Cradel Bethel located at Eton Street.
The book which is seen as the manifestation of Olumba Olumba Obu; his leadership qualities, humility, power to heal amongst others despite “all sort of names and attribution of his powers,” had been published in the United Kingdom since 1999. But, this is the first time it is being presented to the general public.
“The aim of this address is to draw the attention of the public to the availability of the Everlasting Gospel of Leader Olumba Olumba Obu, its uniqueness and importance, the profile and divinity of the author and why it is a must-read for all children of God,” Archibong said.
Archibong called on all and sundry to get a copy as the panaceas to all problems whether spiritual or physical to obtain everlasting life were contained therein.
“I will conclude by recommending the everlasting Gospel to all and sundry. It is the panacea to all our problems whether spiritual or physical and the way to obtain everlasting life. Practicing the recondite wisdom of God, his ways, taught therein, will guarantee a perfect society populated by perfect individuals that we all yearn for.
“Our legislators, government functionaries, businessmen, businesswomen, clergy men, practitioners of all religions and even children all need to learn and practice the ways of God and so this Everlasting Gospel is a must read,” he said.
In an interactive session, the BCS further revealed that the book is, “greater than every other book.”
The BCS, popularly referred to as “O O Obu” (pronounced Oh-Oh-Bu) and “Brotherhood” was founded by Olumba Olumba Obu whom is referred to as Leader and with three O’s “OOO.”
OOO, was born on December 30, 1918, at Biakpan, in the present day Biase Local Government Area of southern Cross River State.
