Pastors Must Have Their Integrity Intact – Apostle Kumi-Larbi

The General Secretary of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Alexander Nana Yaw Kumi-Larbi, has asserted that Christians who have their integrity intact are fit for purpose and are in a better position to turn things around in the nation.

Speaking at the ongoing All Ministers’ Conference at the Pentecost Convention Centre on Wednesday, September 14, 2022, on the topic: “Righteousness: The Authority of the Kingdom” –Romans 14:17; Proverbs 14:34; Hebrews 1:8-9; Ephesians 4:24, among other scriptures, Apostle Kumi-Larbi noted that though ministers of the gospel have been ordained to perform certain duties, they can make real impact only when they become blameless and men and women of integrity.

He posited that Ghana does not need too many ministers of the gospel but people of integrity.

He charged believers, especially the clergy to be men and women of unquestionable characters, whose integrity can be vouched for by everyone.

According to him, righteousness empowers leaders to properly assert their authority since they have clear conscience to undertake whatever they do.

For him, Christians have become little Jesuses because the finished work of Christ has imputed His righteousness on them.

“Let no one belittle you, stand as a giant because you have been set aside for God’s work,” he stated.

He added: “Essentially, by this finished work of Christ, we have been imputed with God’s righteousness and have been empowered to live a life of righteousness in attitude, words and deeds.”

Apostle Kumi-Larbi indicated that righteousness is what distinguishes Christians from the people of the world and that it is expected of every believer to lead lives that conform to God’s will.

He stressed that the primary reason why Jesus came to earth to die on the Cross was to make it possible for humanity to be restored to God’s righteous standards. The General Secretary noted that in the kingdom of God, the scepter, emblem, totem or symbol of authority is righteousness, saying, “That is why we the people of the Kingdom must love righteousness and hate evil.”
