Abstract

A coat of many doctrinal controversies: an x-ray of Nigerian Christian spirituality appraised some salient doctrinal differences among Christian denominations in Nigeria, which often hampered unity among the competing denominations in the 21st century. Findings showed that there was lack of national unity among the Christian churches. Factors that conditioned the doctrinal controversy included sacraments, sola scriptura, sola fide, sola gracia, indulgence, perpetual virginity of Mary, purgatory, infallibility of the Pope, women ordination, infant baptism, homosexuality among others. The work recommended that oneness of Christians in Nigeria should be Christocentric, unity in diversity, and sola scriptura. Methods of approach are historical, comparative and descriptive methods.
