- The former moderator of the Methodist Church of Ghana has advised evangelists to desist from consulting deities for their miracles
- He said these acts were ungodly and went against the principles of Christianity
Rev. Professor Emmanuel Asante Antwi, the chairman of the National Peace Council, has urged Ghanaian clergymen to avoid consulting with deities to aid in their miracle works.
During the commissioning of new evangelists at the Kwadaso Bethel Methodist Church in Kumasi, Rev. Antwi stated that such acts went against God and the principles of Christianity.
"As a church, we have taught you what to say and what not to say, as a man of God, your responsibility is to win souls for Christ but not to use your calling gift to create division in society, therefore am telling you not to go contrary to our teachings," he said.
Rev. Antwi charged the new evangelists to follow the teachings of the Methodist Church and heed their call to heal the sick, deliver those in bondage and cleanse the impure, as part of their new life as men of God.
He warned them that using the powers of deities to perform miracles for popularity, would lead to discord in the congregation and their families.
"I know what some prophets are doing in the country as a man of God, don’t capitalise on your calling to consult deities for fame which comes with healing and false prophecy," Rev. Antwi added.
