Maverick Member of Parliament for Asssin Central, Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has stated that the attitude of some pastors in the country will never make him attend church.
He said most of them are deceitful and are just exploiting the vulnerabilities of their unsuspecting congregation.
“You are bereaved and go to contract a loan and give to a pastor…this is why I don’t believe in Ghanaian pastors and I have consistently repeated I will not go to Church. There are so many of them which makes it impossible to see the genuine ones “, he said.
In recent times, the NPP MP has been consistent with his criticism of the clergy and some Christians in Ghana.
He added that, "Yesterday when I was coming and listening to Oman FM, there was this pastor who was there giving out lotto numbers claiming God has various spiritual gifts for pastors but his was lotto numbers."
“Have you seen what I have been saying? They are deceiving all of you”, he said.
Ken Agyapong's comments comes in the wake of the brouhaha a recent prophecy by Rev. Owusu Bempah on some key personalities in Ghana has caused.
Rev. Owusu Bempah is on record to have said that Ghana will lose political figures like the Vice President Alhaji Dr. Bawumia, former President John Agyekum Kufuor, the Chief Imam amongst others.
Hon. Agyapong also added: "When you talk about it, they say you are blaspheming but it is the truth. When you see the lifestyle of most men of God, their lifestyles; lavish lifestyles, and you see their followers and how deprived they are…I don’t believe in prophecies”.
