- Prophet Kumchacha, has asked the founder of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensah Otabil, to demonstrate modesty
- Kumchacha says Otabil should learn how to accept criticism from people
Founder and overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Dr. Mensa Otabil must learn to exercise humility, as well as learn how to accept criticism from people.
This is according to the leader of the Heavens Gate Ministries, Nicholas Osei, commonly referred to as Prophet Kumchacha.
The prophet has, in recent times, been on the neck of Pastor Otabil, and once described the ICGC founder as a "fraud" after members of his (Otabil's) church were asked to sow seeds of up to $5,000 during last month's Greater Works Conference.
Kumchacha has again laid into Pastor Otabil following comments in which he appeared to have taken a swipe at his critics in the aftermath of the collapse of the Capital Bank - where the ICGC owned 3% of shares.
Delivering a sermon last Sunday, August 20, Pastor Otabil said: "you look at the person insulting you and the person, sometimes, himself looks like an insult. But out of the abundance of his insult, he is insulting you."
His comments have divided opinion in the country, with some accusing him of lacking the thick skin to take criticisms.
Kumchacha believes the ICGC founder must learn to take criticisms from people, while urging him to be humble and learn from the unassertiveness of the world's richest man, Bill Gates.
Responding to Pastor Otabil's utterances on Accra FM, Kumchacha said: “Let me tell Otabil that he should learn how to accept criticism from people. He should be humble. Even Bill Gates who is the richest man is humble in his dealings with people. People insult Bill Gates and describe him with all manner of words, yet he continues to show humility."
According to him, Pastor Otabil must make it a point to "read the Book of Proverbs", adding that "anybody who hates correction is like an animal" and such a character must be immediately changed.
