what is brotherhood

 

Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS) is a spiritual movement emanating from Africa, and is also known as Christ’s Universal Spiritual School of Practical Christianity.

His Holiness Olumba Olumba Obu, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, is the Chairman of BCS Executive Council and Head of Administration BCS World wide. He is the son of its original Founder, Leader Olumba Olumba Obu.

BCS aims amongst other things to promote, advance and propagate the Christian religion by the study and teaching of the Bible, to relieve poverty, suffering and distress, advance education, and carry out charitable activities beneficial to the community.

BCS is more comprehensive and inclusive than a Church. It embraces not only Christians but also people of every religion and of none. In Nigeria, a country currently torn apart by conflict between Christians and Muslims, it has been playing a vitally important part in the work of peace and reconciliation. Grounded in Biblical teachings about justice and love, it takes a strong moral stand against the greed, corruption and violence that is now so pervasive not only in Africa but throughout the entire world.

BCS’ concept of ‘brotherhood’ is much broader than that of most religions, as it encompasses not only human beings, but also all members of the animal kingdom. It seeks to put into practice the idea of Reverence for Life that is to be found in some of the great faiths of the East. Unusually for a movement that first became manifest in Africa, it advocates vegetarianism.
