Summary of this tutorial:

With this error you will be locked out of your admin area so we would recommend using a FTP to log in to your site’s files.

Read the error it is giving you and locate the file the error is pointing to such as the wp-content themes folder and open the file that is causing the error.

If it is code that you have added you will want to remove the new code, save the file and then reupload it.

That should allow you to log back in to your WordPress website.
