The General Overseer of the Cathedral of Praise, Reverend Amos Omari Ameyaw, has admonished men of God to concentrate on their core mandate of propagating the Gospel of truth and desist from seeking political power, or engaging in active multi-party politics.
Speaking in an interview with newslinegh.com, Rev. Ameyaw, indicated that men of God are primarily supposed to be peace agents in the society, a duty nature puts an unconditional demand on them.
Admitting that the church and its leadership has played active role in the provision and support of economic ventures such as schools, hospitals and the rest, it does not offer opportunity for Pastors and other men of God to veer into active politics, to the extent that others are even forming their political parties.
To him, members of the congregation and the society in general have utmost respect and regard for men of God, hence the need to remain neutral.
He asserted that, men members of the congregation belong to diverse political groupings, so he wondered what would happen if the head pastor takes entrenched political position.
To him, men of God are politicians of God, drawing souls to the Kingdom of God and to good morals in the society.
He said further that, many men of God follow politics, giving prophecies and predictions about election results in the name of prophecies for selfish material gains.
He further advised the youth to be weary of bad influence from power drunk politicians who would go every length to achieve their political dreams.
He also advised politicians to ensure that their actions and utterances reflect the Christian faith they belong.
He further advised Ghanaians to accept whoever is elected as President in the upcoming election and rally behind the person.
