The General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Dr Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, has called on Ghanaians not to allow people to hide behind religion to perpetrate criminal acts. “If Ghanaians will not allow politicians to destroy this country, they should not allow religious leaders to destroy this country,” he asserted.
The outspoken clergyman was contributing to the topic “Who Brings the Preacher to Book in Ghana” on Joy FM’s Christian talk show, ‘A Walk with Jesus’ Sunday evening.
His comments came on the heels of the recent ‘misconduct’ of some Christian leaders. Quite recently, some ‘men of God’ have exchanged verbal attacks, with one issuing death threats.
He added that a threat to kill somebody is “out of the realm of religion, you are into crime.”
He stressed that in the past people had used religion to destroy countries, but such people must not be allowed to have their way in Ghana.
“when pastors break the law, the law must take its course,” he affirmed.
