Evangelist Dag Heward-Mills, founder of Lighthouse Chapel International has broken his silence days after six former pastors of his church accused him of violating their rights.
He posted a cryptic message on Twitter, the micro-blogging site which is been interpreted as a response to the controversy about the church now known as United Denominations, originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches.
"The love of Jesus is greater love because He sacrificed Himself for us. Jesus did not give us money, houses, or cars as some do; He laid down His life! He gave His life for us," reads the first of two messages.
He also added: “Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.” 1 John 3:16
"How is the sacrifice legit if he knew he will wake up. Doesn't seem genuine," reacted Ajoa Tamakloe.
Meanwhile, members of Lighthouse Chapel International are defending Dag Heward-Mills amidst the controversy he currently finds himself in.
Larry Odonkor, Emmanuel Oko Mensah, Edem Kofi Amankwa, Seth Sarpong Duncan, Edward Laryea, and Faith Fiakojo have sued the church presided over by him saying that their SSNIT contributions were not paid after working for decades.
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.
Early this week, Heward-Mills was seen in new photos chilling with politicians including Alan Kojo Kyereman, the Minister of Trade and Industry in spite of the controversy.
