The Founder of the Royalhouse Chapel International, Apostle General Sam Korankye Ankrah, has urged Christians to recover their glory and power to have a solid influence in controlling the institutions of the country.
Speaking on the topic, “The Church Living in the Fear of God,” at the second edition of the All Ministers Conference on Thursday at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh, the Apostle General lamented the presence of churches in every corner of the country, yet moral bankruptcy reigns among the people in Ghana.
According to him, the Church is a defining, dominant, directional and developing force that needs to take dominium of the nation and determine its direction to eradicate corruption and attain moral discipline.
He expressed worry about the rate at which energetic youth queue up in various embassies each day, seeking visas to travel outside the country to seek greener pastures.
He charged politicians to stop defrauding the people, all in the name of politics and democracy.
He called on pastors and church leaders to educate their followers on voting for God-fearing people rather than encouraging them to step out and exercise their voting. He believed this would enable the citizenry and believers to elect leaders with moral vision.
The Apostle General Korankye Ankrah concluded that the Church depicts Christ himself and must recover its glory and power to determine how the country’s affairs should be steered.
“Politicians alone cannot manage the nation in attaining its expected vision; the Church must intervene to put the country on the right track,” he stressed.
This year’s All Ministers Conference (the biggest inter-denominational gathering for ministers in Ghana) is under the theme: “Moral Vision and National Development – the Role of the Church.”
