The Church is a 'thief' to Christians – Kweku Asiedu

Popular Ghanaian Entertainment critic, Kweku Asiedu, is angry over the conduct of some Ghanaian Pastors.

According to the showbiz personality, the recent conduct of some self-acclaimed Ghanaian ‘men of God’ are nothing, but plain thievery.

To him, many Ghanaian religious leaders are not impacting the lives of their members positively, but only perpetrating day-light robbery and fraud on them.

Speaking on Accra-based Onua FM, as monitored by, Kweku Asiedu insisted that the Church has failed to better the lives of its members, yet rather take away from them the little that they have.

The entertainment personality lamented that many Ghanaian pastors live extravagant lives, while their church members wallow in abject poverty.

“The church is a thief to Christians, a church will grow and a pastor will flourish but the people in the church keep suffering,” Kwaku Asiedu angrily said.

Throwing a subtle jab at the founder and leader of International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim who recently added Rolls Royce Ghost Series 2, estimated at $300,000 to his fleet of cars said, “Today, someone says he’s bought a Rolls Royce. How did he make his money? Does he have a registered business?”

Kweku, who was extremely sad, stressed that instead of Pastors today amassing wealth, they should rather focus on the welfare of its members.

“Ask yourself how many churches have hospitals where members receive medical care for free? How many churches have schools with affordable fees for members? There is no Charismatic church where seeds are not sown. But the seeds never germinate not to talk of harvest,” he lamented.

He also added that, “Your children are having lavished weddings and you boldly say that the Lord has blessed you; you can count your fleet of cars. You’ve forgotten that someone sang during the offertory? Why don’t you give a special money for those people to be motivated?”

On his part, a veteran Ghanaian gospel musician, Rev. Mensah Bonsu nearly burst into tears on the same radio show as he lamented how some Ghanaian church leaders have been unfair to him in his music career.
