The President of The Apostolic Church- Ghana, Apostle Dr. Aaron Ami-Narh, has called for a review of the approach to the fight against moral corruption and decadence in the country.
He explained that moral corruption is a universal problem from which all manner of corruption emanates and underscored the need for the Church, in general, to be responsive in addressing the menace of moral corruption, which has ultimately led to the woes of the world today.
Apostle Dr Ami-Narh, therefore, emphasised the need for the Church to adopt a holistic approach based on the teachings of love and faith, which have proven to be victorious over moral corruption.
“Moral corruption must be fought from the inside because it is a heart issue. Only God’s word gets deep enough to separate the soul from the spirit,” he revealed.
He added: “Religiosity is not a cure for moral corruption. Faith alone cannot also fight corruption. It takes a combination of drugs to cure moral corruption, faith, and love.”
He said this in a presentation on Thursday on the topic, “The Church and the Battle against Moral Corruption,” at the 2023 All Ministers Conference (the biggest non-denominational gathering of Ghanaian pastors) currently ongoing at the Pentecost Convention Centre (PCC), Gomoa Fetteh near Kasoa on the theme: “Moral Vision and National Development: The Role of Church.”
Apostle Dr Narh-Ami asked Christians to express their faith through love, quoting 1 Corinthians 13:1-5 to support his argument. He added that victory over moral corruption is assured once faith graduates into love.
He observed that although some efforts have been put in place by the Church in Ghana in the fight against moral corruption, a lot needed to be done to make good the gains achieved so far.
“The average Christian does not know what he must become and therefore lacks the focus of what he must become,” he said, adding, “You may have speed as a young person, but don’t throw away the older ones. They have something to teach you.”
