It is never easy to be a Man of God. And especially in this part of the world where people are very critical about what religion should entail, it takes a lot of effort to keep one’s reputation intact.
For pastors, though, having a credible name and an unquestionable character is very key in determining your status in society.
Unfortunately for some Ghanaian pastors, controversy upon controversy in the media have taken a hit on their reputations.
Without even mentioning names, it is obvious that some pastors have lost public respect due to certain scandals they were involved or even certain utterances they made.
But there are also others who have maintained a clean record, and continue to go about their religious duties without any blemish.
