- Counselor Lutterodt is saying is unfair for Dr Mensah Otabil to brand Christians 'fools'
- He says Dr Otabil broke protocol by taking special offering from his members
Self-acclaimed counselor George Lutterodt, has pledge support for the leader of Glorious Word Power Ministry International, Rev. Owusu Bempeh against Dr. Mensah Otabil over his recent comments on 'born again' Christians.
According to him it is a bit unfair for the leader of International Central Gospel church, to use strong words such as ‘fools’ in describing some Christians who visit some so-called prophets.
The ICGC leader, has come under intense pressure from some critics including Rev. Owusu Bempah, after his recent sermon on ‘Born again Christians’. Some reports indicate that, Pastor Mensah Otabil branded Christians who chase after self-acclaimed Prophets with their money as ‘foolish' Christians who can be easily deceived.
He also argued that, the popular man of God, earlier described taking monies from congregants as a sign not from God, and yet would hold his annual ‘Greater Works’ programme and take ridicules sums of monies from his members.
“What Pastor Otabil said is not right. The point he made didn’t go well. There are people from Presby and other churches who also go to his church. The believers are one, but his statement is deeming it different. The statement he made doesn’t prove the believers are one”, he said in a media interview.
He also commented that, he [Dr Otabil] has broken protocol to take money from Independence Avenue; a big public place like that where no man of God has ever done that.
The controversial counselor insisted that, he doesn’t buy the idea that, the founder of Kingsway International Christian Centre (KICC), Pastor Matthew Ashimolowo was the one who requested monies from ICGC members and not Dr Mensah Otabil..
“I don’t buy the fact that it doesn’t come from Otabil. Under no circumstance will Donald Trump leave America to declare holiday in Ghana… Never! It can never happen! He has his anointing but his anointing in Ghana doing greater works is subjected to Dr Mensah Otabil, no matter who he [Ashimolowo] is…”
“His anointment is bigger than all of them. God has given the direction but the money will be given to Otabil”, he submitted.
Meanwhile, Rev. Owusu Bempeh has given an ultimatum to Pastor Mensah Otabil to render an apology to many Prophets and Christians who have been offended by his infamous comment.
