Bishop Daniel Obinim

Bishop Daniel Obinim has attracted the wrath of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council (GPCC) after he publicly reigned insults on the Ist Vice President of the Council and Head of the Royal House Chapel International, Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah.

In a stern press release criticizing Bishop Obinim, the Council described him as a ''charlatan'' who was misleading and defrauding his followers and congregants. The council has thus called on the general public to disregard any such statements by the controversial pastor.

"The abuse of unsuspecting Ghanaians by so-called men of God is becoming alarming and so evident. The increasing electronic media landscape and social media has revealed how such people are taking advantage of the unfortunate vulnerabilities of their congregations and the unsuspecting Ghanaian public to defraud and blackmail them in the name of so called prophecies and miracles. In as much as the Council believes strongly in the biblical doctrines of prophecies and miracles as signs of the workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives as Christians and the Church, the wanton abuse and manipulation of the sound doctrines of the Church of Jesus Christ by these few charlatans for their egocentric interests ought to be exposed and condemned by the majority and genuine Christians," the statement stated.

Readers are reminded that founder of the International Godsway Ministries, Bishop Daniel Obinim, on his Obinim TV called  Korankye Ankrah a fool and further challenged him or any man of God or mallam,  to contest his powers.  This action comes after the Apostle General of the Royal House Chapel International, Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah during the week in an interview on Starr FM questioned whether the self-acclaimed ‘Bishop’ is really a servant of God. Rev. Sam Korankye in his interview expressed the belief that Obinim is tarnishing the image of Christians and described members of his church as a ‘bunch of ignorant people’.
