The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) has called on the government to engage legally registered Christian Ecumenical Bodies to weed out all so-called men-of-God whose behaviors are dragging the name of Christianity into the mud.

That, the council believed, would help sanitize the system without curtailing the freedom to worship as enshrined in Ghana’s constitution.

Failure to do so, the council feared, would have far reaching consequences on Ghanaians, citing several examples of incidents in the past where so-called men-of-God led many people astray.

In a press statement issued and signed by the National Executive Council (NEC) of GPCC, it also called on the National Media Commission to speed up the passage of the religious broadcasting bill into law to regulate religious exercises.

“We call on all media houses, especially the electronic ones, to lend their support in helping weed out these characters by not allowing financial considerations to override the general interest and safety of the public,” the statement added.

The 14 member NEC, including Apostle Dr. Opoku Onyinah, Apostle Dr. Stephen K. Amoani, Rev. Dr. Paul Frimpong Manso, Most Rev. Dr. Charles Agyin-Asare, Rt Rev Sam Korankye Ankrah, Rev. Clement Achebah, among others, assured all Ghanaians that GPCC would continue to lead the crusade to weed out all undesirable elements in the religious community.

“We are willing to provide mentoring support and guidance for all genuine ministers of the gospel willing to submit to the guiding authority of the Council to enhance the propagation of the true gospel of Jesus Christ,” the statement noted.

The councils call comes at the backdrop of a video recording that went viral on various media of verbal attacks by Bishop Daniel Obinim on the person of Rev. Sam Koranklye Ankrah, the founder and Apostle-General of Royal House Chapel International.

The statement noted that the GPCC had no personal grudge against Bishop Obinim but was ready to stand up against anybody who under the guise of the name of Christ sought to take advantage of Ghanaians.

The Council therefore called on Christians to return to the Bible as their main reference point and standard for evaluating and confirming prophecies that were genuine.
