Maybe God really dey call am but he just show God his true substance and that he can't be chosen. No be all who are called are chosen. Very unfortunate.

Pastor caught stealing instruments
The activities of some so-called pastors are worrying.
Earlier, a 'pastor' by name Matthew Osika in Berekum was arrested following suspicion that he looted musical instruments from a different church.
According to YEN.com.gh's earlier report, the Berekum Police in the Bono Region confirmed the reports and made the arrest.
This followed a tip-off they had had from Pastor Paul Asante Bonah, who heads the Amankokwaa Methodist Church as a senior pastor.
