Rev. Dr. William Kwabena Ofosu-Addo, Chairperson of the Brong Ahafo Presbytery, has cautioned politicians to desist from using abusive words as the country prepares for polls come December 7, 2020.
According to him, the airwaves are full of insults, a behavior that is alien to the Ghanaian culture and Christianity.
He charged all politicians and party faithfuls to preach to the Ghanaian populace what they are capable of doing when given the mandate instead of instigating violence that could be detrimental to the peace and development of the nation.
Rev. Ofosu-Addo stated that, “I am convinced that Ghana will go to the polls and come out peacefully by the grace of God. I am therefore, appealing to all Ghanaians to champion peace to help the nation achieve success in the upcoming elections.”
Delivering his sermon on the Theme: “Beware of false teachings”, the Presbytery Chairperson revealed that, “false prophets and teachers as those who boast and claim responsibility for miracles instead of giving glory to the Lord.”
He added that, “such people condemn all churches and tag them as evil with the exception of their own churches.”
Rev. Dr. William Kwabena Ofosu-Addo called on all followers of Christ to beware of such prophets and desist from patronizing their religious programs.
He disclosed that, all who preach nothing but Jesus Christ and His crucifixion and Resurrection are always favoured.
He therefore charged all Teachers and preachers not to dissuade from preaching and teaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Presbytery Chairperson made this known during the Induction Service of Rev. Benjamin Acheampong as the Chiraa District Minister of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at Emmanuel Congregation, Chiraa.
The program brought together Past Ministers of the District as well as Traditional leaders .
