Reverend Dr James R. K. Mensah, Founder and Chairman of Elim Evangelical Church, has called on Ghanaians to shun people who seek to tarnish the image of Christianity in the country.
He said many people call themselves Apostles whiles they are not and that each and every one will give an account of his deeds.
Rev Mensah said this in a sermon delivered at a thanksgiving service of Reverend Paul Kweku Addei Jnr, son of the Late Bishop Kweku Addei, the founder of the Great Word of God Church “Bohye Asore” at Odupong Ofaakor in Awutu East Municipality.
Apostle Paul Addei Jnr was earlier inducted in 2015 as the General Secretary of the Church after the death of his father, he was also the Executive Director of Good Shepherded Child Care and a Director of Good Shepherd Theological College at Odupong Ofaakor.
Rev Dr Mensah said Apostleship is a call by God and it important for the society to shun individuals who by their deeds and utterances seek to destroy the work of God.
He said people who are called apostles are blameless, selfless and committed in their calling to feed, help and to lead people on the right part to attain salvation.
Apostle Kweku Addei Jnr expressed his appreciation to the members of the church for the trust and confidence reposed on him after the death of his father.
“Knowing the responsibilities that go along with the highest call of the church, I am not taking it lightly, but rather consider it as a heavy burden, I accept to carry it and to humbly be your servant and helper”, he said.
Apostle Addei Jnr pleaded with the members of church in the country to overcome their individual difference and to put their resources together to help expand the Kingdom of God.
