Many people have argued that men of God are not supposed to get involved with politics as they give room for people to attack them verbally and then dent the image of God they [men of God] represent on earth.

But the founder and leader of the Glorious Word Power International Ministry, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah has begged to differ from that notion of many Ghanaians, saying that men of God do not engage in partisan politics.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' Morning Show, Rev Owusu Bempah averred men of God rather engage in politics because it is what they do everyday as they are campaigning for Jesus Christ to win souls for God.

He stressed that “Ghana is not for politicians alone to decide the fate of the country and thus, men of God have a stake in the development of the country”.

“Pastors are politicians because we have the party of Jesus Christ and the party of Satan. We are competing with the agents of the devil over souls in the world and so we will continue to do politics”, he stated.

He emphasized that men of God in the Bible engaged in politics of their time as the likes of Prophet Samuel, Elijah, and Nathan contributed to the progress of Israel when the rulers were going astray.

“We don’t have any hatred for any political party; we are speaking the mind of God to the leaders of the country and we will continue to do so in the country. So if something is going on wrong, we have every right to speak our minds as citizens”, Rev Owusu Bempah added.

He therefore condemned the Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho over his coup d’etat comments; saying it is unfortunate to hear a leader like Koku Anyidoho inciting the masses to revolt against a ruling government.
