Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Members of Lighthouse Chapel have come out to defend Dag Heward-Mills amidst the controversy he currently finds himself in.
Last week, YEN.com.gh reported that six former pastors of the church now known as United Denominations, originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches accused its leadership of violating their rights.
Since then, Heward-Mills has been called out, with many alleging that he is not what he portrays to be in the public eye. Some are however vehemently defending him saying that there is a ploy to bring him down.
"You see there are a lot of people who hate the church so when things like this lighthouse, Bishop Dag things come out, then they just want to use the opportunity to bash the church. But what I know even the gates of hell will not prevail. Amen!" writes Elikem.
"I love him [Smiling face with heart-shaped eyes emoji] la . Argue with your phone Red [heartRed emojis]. Bishop Dag I Stan [Yellow heart emojis]"
Kwame biggs writes: "Bishop Dag ankasa he's a national asset and an Angel on earth. Your stupid mind about him doesn't change anything here on earth."
Larry Odonkor, Emmanuel Oko Mensah, Edem Kofi Amankwa, Seth Sarpong Duncan, Edward Laryea, and Faith Fiakojo have sued the church saying that their SSNIT contributions were not paid after working for decades.
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Heward-Mills was seen in new photos chilling with politicians in spite of the controversy.
The photos were posted on the Facebook page of Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, the Minister of Trade and Industry. "l joined Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills last Saturday, 24th April, for a spiritually uplifting breakfast meeting at his sprawling Anagkazo Campus at Akwapim-Mampong in the Eastern Region," Kyeremanten wrote.
"The inspiring session held at the God's Banquet Hall was also attended by other politicians, members of the judiciary, corporate and industrial captains, who all joined in prayer for the peace and development of the country. I was later conducted round the magnificent campus as well as the Center for Historical Research into World Evangelism and Global Mission."
