Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Some social media users who happen to be former members of the Lighthouse Chapel have accused Dag Heward-Mills, founder of the church of living a life contrary to the holier than thou life he portrays to the public.
It comes days after six former pastors of the church now known as United Denominations, originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches, alleged that their SSNIT contributions were not paid during their working years.
Following this news, some social media users took to the platform to share their own experiences with the church and its founder.
While some accused the church and its leadership of some wrongdoings, others defended them.
"I left lighthouse never to return to Christianity or any religion. This Dag erh! He’s a con artist ankasa," Goddezz who was a member of the Lighthouse Chapel said in a Facebook post.
"He did it twice and I wasn’t going to wait for the third time. He will come to our branch under the pretense of healing and miracle, only to come and have fundraising."
The comments of this social media user were met with both approval and disagreement.
Read some below.
Blessed Lillian: "Lighthouse, that church or more like a cult, I am glad I left. Pastors sleeping with girls, married and unmarried yet they'll tell you to stay with their stupid loyalty and disloyalty teaching."
Ato Akyin: "Lighthouse chapel di33 oy3 stocks and auctioning entity oo...m3nhw3!The very first day i attended that chapel, collection was set at 2k ghc...me dat i have 10ghc di33 merey3 den wo ha?!! I left sharp sharp, found myself a drink spot shot some long apio against my ciggies...saying in my head that "yeah i'm hell" and laughing hard!"
Nana Kwame Djan Katakyie I: "I don't agree that all churches are for money. At least I know about the church of Pentecost. You may have a point if you say our focus is drifting from the salvation messages."
Glory Godsman OK: "I’ll never dispute you on the fact that churches are after your money, but remember money answers all things so without money the church will lack certain answers... selah You can’t also dispute me on this fact that apart from the pastors, there have been persons, families, communities, nations that have benefitted greatly from the church. Don’t only look at one side of the coin to condemn the coin."
Earlier YEN.com.gh reported that Larry Odonkor, Emmanuel Oko Mensah, Edem Kofi Amankwa, Seth Sarpong Duncan, Edward Laryea, and Faith Fiakojo sued the church accusing the leaders of violating their rights.
