Touch Not My Anointed; Is Ghana Invoking The Wrath of God by Recent "Attacks" on Key Pastors?

The nature of politics in Ghana sometimes gets radical that people who occupy sensitive positions like chiefs and pastors are advised not to engage in active politics. Over the period, chiefs and pastors who boldly declared allegiance to one party or the other came under some form of criticism from even their followers who once held them in high esteem.

Men of God have played more of a paternalistic role when it comes to politics, serving as the link between the two major political parties in the country. They have mediated heated political discourse and brought them under control.

As much as possible, pastors have been able to strike a balance between being politically neutral as they can and being state men who must offer constructive criticism and assessment of events in the country. In recent times. Certain key pastors seem to have found themselves in the wrong book of a section of Ghanaians who think their activities crossed the line and hence reacted.

Need I remain you of how the moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, J.O.Y Mante was criticized for a comment he made about the agenda 111 projects of the president. He was alleged to have said that, those who are not in support of the initiative are witches.

Kwame Aplus, a prominent public figure and a strong critic of the ruling New Patriotic Party, also descended on the Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the National Cathedral, Apostle Opoku Onyinah for revealing that churches will have to contribute to support the building of the Cathedral.

Are we not Invoking the wrath of God by our treatment of these issues?

In my humble opinion, these are anointed men of God, and even if they have faltered in any way, we should be measured in how we descend on them.
