Founder and leader of the Gospel Revival Church of Christ sited at Kumasi Sofoline in the Ashanti Region, Bishop John Nana Kwame Boateng has stressed the need for pastors to do away with financial gains and instead, live up to their mandates as representatives of God and help build a solid economy.
Speaking to this portal in an interview on Sunday October 3 2021 after church service Bishop Boateng expressed worry about the manner in which some pastors have in the recent times become lovers of money, using all forms of strategies to archive their aims.
According to him, corruption and criminal activities can allegedly be seen as some serious challenges that are running down the country in these days.
Such challenges the clergy reiterated,as men of God must be topmost priority to call the authorities to order for attention.
But unfortunately instead of using our pulpits to discourage antisocial vices in the society, pastors have rather become worst offenders hiding under the cover of the Bible to contribute to the crime wave in the country, the Bishop pointed out.
Bishop Boateng was not happy that Ghanaians always wake up to hear bad news from pastors that relate to allege financial extortions, ritual killings, passports and visa frauds, snatching of church members wives among other ungodly activities that never speaks well of a man of God.
The Bishop questioned about the credibility of such pastors insisting that if men of God who are supposed to set good examples for the society to emulate are going waywards, then where is the future of this country.
The clergy on this note urged pastors to live up their mandates and do away with illegal wealth creation, bearing in mind that man was born naked and would return back to his external home naked to face the judgement day.
In order words, the bespectacled man of God further advised the leaders to first think about the development of the country instead of seeking for their personal well being, concluding that posterity will not forgive them if they ditch the destiny of this country.
