Minister of the gospel have been advised to teach the truth and what is right instead of using the pulpits as avenues for making money.

Apostle Sam Darko, head of the Apostle Mission Church (AMC) gave the advice during a week-long special prayer session held at Davidkrom on the Mamfe-Larteh road.

Pastors really need to sacrifice money, time and other resources to uplift the soul of the individual.

They should always remember that they will be paid by God for their stewardship and therefore stop demanding money and other instant rewards from church members,” he said.

He also appealed to the government to address the level of indiscipline in the country.

He said “there is so much indiscipline in all sectors of the society. Look at our educational institutions where students now practise occultism.

Look at the way students and children are dying of late. These young ones are the future of the  nation and one can just imagine how the country would be if these young occultists join the society after completing their education”.

He stressed that if this was not addressed appropriately, the evil spirit would take control and the country would suffer worse situations than what was experienced in neighbouring countries.

“What became big problems or conflicts in other countries began like insignificant issues which eventually engulfed those nations.

Apostle Darko called on the government to ensure that the country's oil resources are entrusted in the hand of God- fearing people, so that it would be a blessing to all and not bring about problems as was being experienced in some African countries.

He adviced members of the opposition parties to see their present position as a blessing and urged them to co-operate with the ruling party in the development of the nation.

“In the end, it is our children who stand the chance to either enjoy or suffer depending on how our politicians handle affairs now,” he said.

He therefore called on Ghanaians to pray for the political leaders so that they would be imbued with the fear of God”.
