The La Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle John Osei Amaniampong, has reiterated that a Christian who has integrity can be trusted.
Apostle Amaniampong made these remarks when he officially opened the recently-held Apostolisation for the Accra Newtown Zone in the La Area held at the Dr. Thomas Wyatt Memorial Temple on Tuesday, February 23, 2021.
Addressing the participants, the La Area Head admonished Christians to uphold integrity in all aspects of their lives, especially when no one is watching. He noted with disappointment the widespread mantra which portrays Ghana as a corrupt nation even though 70% of its population profess to be Christian.
Citing Scripture references including Exodus 23:1 and 8, Leviticus 19:2 and 11, Deuteronomy 16:19, Proverbs 17:23, Ecclesiastes 7:9, Luke 3:10-14 and 1 Timothy 6:10, Apostle Amaniampong pointed out that bribery, which usually goes hand in hand with corruption, blinds the eyes of any individual including the wise. He said that bribes cause people to pervert justice and to twist the words of the innocent.
He, therefore, advised Christians never to compromise their integrity even as they take their rightful place in society as “Salt and Light of the world.”
In his concluding remarks, Apostle John Osei Amaniampong challenged Christians to act with integrity to save their homes, families, workplaces, and the entire world from the decay of bribery and corruption and its attendant ills.
This event was attended by ministers and their spouses, as well as some Area Ministry Executive members and officers.
