Hunger has driven many men to become pastors – Apostle Francis Amoako Atta

- A man of God, Apostle Francis Atta, has claimed that poverty has driven many men to become pastors

- He added that the challenge could be dealt with if there are employment opportunities

The Head Pastor of the Freedom Chapel International, Apostle Francis Amoako Atta, has claimed that most men of God are fake.

According to him, some people pretend to have received a calling from God because they have been starving for long.

He went ahead to say that in a bid to make ends meet, they brand themselves as pastors, so they could earn a living.

Speaking on Adom FM’s “Black Wednesday” segment hosted by Ohemaa Woyeje, he added that there are inadequate job opportunities and as such people get creative in order to fend for themselves.

“If there are a lot of work opportunities in the country, lots of these pastors will shun the pastoral work. There are only three jobs in Ghana. It’s either you’re a pastor, politician or you sell herbal medicine” he stated.

His comments were as a result of a decision by the president of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, to close down over 700 churches in the country.

According to the president, the churches failed to comply with building regulations. Others, he went on, found themselves in the predicament as a result of noise pollution.

Apostle Atta therefore asked the relevant authorities to develop a criteria for the setting up of churches in Ghana.

To him, the Ministry for Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs needs to take a critical look at the situation before it gets out of hands.

Apostle Amoako noted that some believers are to blame for the preponderance of fake pastors because there always clear signs to determine the true pastors from the fake ones.
