The General Secretary of Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC), Rev. Emmanuel Teimah Barrigah has called on Christian leaders to conduct background checks on church members who pay huge tithes and offerings.

According to Rev. Barrigah, the checks on those members would help to fight corruption in the country.

He said since Christians made up 70 per cent of the country’s population, it is possible that they are involved in the practice which retards national development.

Speaking in an interview with Zylofon FM, the General Secretary said it is time for Christian leaders to know the kind of jobs their members do and ask questions so that church members could spend within their means.

“Most especially when you see the job the person does, does not tally with the tithe and offering the person gives,” he said.

Rev Barrigah said even though the church needs the money of members to undertake important church projects, leaders should be careful of the money they take and be sure they take the right money.

Stressing on the commitment of Christian leaders to fight corruption, he said they should stand for the truth and act on it no matter the circumstances.

“There is corruption in the system and no one can deny that fact we are in a country where you do not get services being offered to you without giving out money, which is very bad,” he said.
