Former General  Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Dr. Opuni Frimpong has asked church leaders to 'pursue the discontinuation of death predictions on National leaders'.

He says the media especially must stop providing "oxygen to the death predictions for public decency and maturity of religious practices to thrive".

He further intimated in a statement that ministers of the gospel who understand the prophetic gifts and ministry must intensify Christian Education on the subject both in their congregations and other Media platforms.

"Christian Mutuality and Best Practices in matters of faith cannot be compromised...Like in other countries, I have not heard Churches/Pastors from South Korea, France, Germany, UK, Canada, USA etc frequently predicting or discussing the death of their leaders being it Political, Religious, Traditional, Entertainment etc in Public in the name of Prophecy.

The accumulated evidence of public decency and best practices of healthy relationships must inform the church/prophets on our Public dealings with others. The Church in Ghana must be of better example to others in the African Continent," he added.

‘Tell the Righteous it shall be well with them’. Isaiah 3:10

Church Leaders and Media must pursue dis-continuation of death predictions on National Leaders-

I have not heard Churches/Pastors from South Korea, France, Germany, UK, Canada, USA etc frequently predicting or discussing the death of their leaders being it Political, Religious, Traditional, Entertainment etc in Public in the name of Prophecy.

The accumulated evidence of public decency and best practices of healthy relationships must inform the church/prophets on our Public dealings with others. The annual pronouncements of death of national leaders has not being beneficial.

We must protect the healthy relationship between the church and public officials including church and Muslim relationships. May be this is the time the Media must stop providing Media Oxygen to the death predictions for public decency and maturity of Religious practices to thrive.

Political leaders who are affiliated to sources of such predictions will do the nation a lot of good if they can distance themselves from death predictions on others.

Moreover, Ministers of the Gospel who understand the prophetic gifts and ministry must intensify Christian Education on the subject both in their congregations and other Media platforms.

Christian Mutuality and Best Practices in matters of faith cannot be compromised. The Church in Ghana must be of better example to others in the African Continent.

‘Tell the Righteous it shall be well with them’. Isaiah 3:10
