A video of a sermon given by Pastor Mensa Otabil has made its way back to being a viral after incidents of Christian leaders giving prophecies. The sermon is from a church service in March of 2018.
In the said video, Otabil criticised most African preachers, saying they had succeeded in frightening and crippling a great deal of minds with their constant prediction of ‘fake prophecies’.
He made such remarks in the 6-minute video recorded while preaching during a church service.
“Some preachers are complicating the sense of inferiority, powerlessness and weakness that we feel with their doom predictions”. Mensa Otabil has said.
According to the ICGC General Overseer, coming up with such predictions coupled with the manner in which they spread unto the public domain continued to destroy the ‘already struggling self-confidence level of these people'.
He added: “… You listen to the church (and I don’t like criticising preachers) but unfortunately some of the solutions we put out there – frightening people with death, frightening people with prophecy and it’s just complicating the sense of inferiority and powerlessness and weakness that we feel.
“So, when will the African ever rise up and say: ‘I can do it’, when every time he feels there is something chasing him to destroy him?"
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that some angry Muslim youth have attacked the church of Reverend Isaac Owusu Bempah, the founder and leader of the Glorious Word Ministry International.
The youth stormed the Odorkor premises of Owusu-Bempah's church in cars and motorbikes on Wednesday afternoon in a bid to attack him for prophesying the death of the national Chief Imam, Osman Nuhu Sharabutu.
