Apostle Dr. Stephen Kwame Amoani, Chairman of the Christ Apostolic Church International (CACI) has advised the clergy not to use their pulpits to exploit the vulnerable in society.
Apostle Dr Amoani also urged pastors not to use their pulpit to settle personal scores with people.
“It is important that we use our pulpit to teach the word of the God so that the lives of our congregation will be transformed.
I have not become a pastor to take advantage of people but to share God ‘s love to others so that they will experience the fullness of God and have their lives also transformed.”
He was speaking at the CACI’s Seven Day Prophetic Tarry Camp at the Ghana International Trade Fair in Accra under the theme “Experiencing the fullness of God.”
This year’s tarry camp is one of the prayer festivals, which the congregation seeks to thank God Almighty for His faithfulness, providence and protection over the church and the nation during the year.
It also gives them the opportunity to seek the face of their maker.
Addressing the gathering, Apostle Dr Amoani said every believer ought to experience the fullness of God for them to realise their potentials and contribute their quota effectively to the building of the nation and the church.
The CACI Chairman was not enthused about the pretences in the church adding that, those pretending would not be able to stand the test of time.
He urged the church to continue interceding for the nation and the success of social interventions, which would propel the growth of the country.
Whiles commending the government for giving back to the society in the form of Free Senior High School, Apostle Amoani urged Ghanaians to rise and be committed in their civic responsibilities.
“Be punctual at your work places, be productive and eschew using productive hours for social media. Avoid bribery and corruption so that government will have the needed financial resources to execute good policy interventions.”
Apostle Dr. Amoani said his call to support the government in the execution of good policies, hinged on the fact that most of the policies had the potential to create jobs for the youth as well as take the youth away from social vices such as armed robbery and drug abuse.
The CACI Chairman appealed to government to give listening ears to constructive criticisms and take steps to address issues raised by well-meaning Ghanaians.
To the security agencies in the country, Apostle Dr Amoani appealed to the Ghana Police Service to continue acting professionally no matter the level of provocation.
“Shoot to kill and any kind of assault should never be the first option in managing security situation. These acts have the potential to dent the hard won image of the Ghana Police Service,” he stressed.
Prayers were offered for the nation by the congregation.
