Christian leaders asked to redeem the good name of the Church
Wa, July 4, GNA - Mr Cezar Kale, Deputy Upper West Regional Minister has called on the Christian leadership to redeem the good name of the Church.
He cited recent media reports about vices in the Church ranging from litigation, shit bombing, rape, assault, defilement, jostling for positions, fraud and occultism, which suggested that all was not well with the Church. "Government will lend its support to any religious organization that truly wants to give life a meaning for all citizens of this country", he said.
Mr Kale said this during the regional launch of Christ Embassy's Reach out Ghana 2010 (ROGHA 2010) programme on Tuesday at Wa. He called on churches to rekindle the spirit of communal labour as was the case in the past.
The event was used to distribute over a million free copies of the "Rhapsody of Realities", a book authored by Pastor Chris, the Head of the Church and his wife Anita. The event has the theme: "Promoting Peace, Progress, Prosperity and Patriotism".
Mr Kale commended the Pastor for the wisdom given to him by God to write the book and said it was his hope that the widespread reading of the book would further raise the spiritual level of the people and bring them closer to their creator.
The Deputy Regional Minister called on parents not to shirk their responsibilities with regards to training their children to become both morally and spiritually upright.
He said it was for this reason that President John Evans Atta Mills instituted a national prayer day to enable all Ghanaians to come together to give thanks to God for the great things he continues to do for the country. Pastor Moses Liberty, Head Pastor of the Christ Embassy Church, Agona Swedru branch, said their vision was to take the word of God to all parts of the world to save many souls that were under the bondage of the devil. He described the book as one that contained the divine gift of God and has the power to transform many lives that were dwelling in the spirit of darkness.
He said the spirit behind the book was so great that anybody, who came into contact with it, his or her life would never be the same. The Pastor noted that the actual distribution of the book would start on July 1, and would cover all the nine districts in the region. He advised all who would have the privilege of getting the book to make it a point to read it always and they would have many testimonies to tell.
