Lead lives free of corruption-Presbyterian Moderator to Christians

Moderator for the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and Chairman of the Christian Council, Reverend Professor Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mantey, has bemoaned the chastisement Christian leaders occupying public offices, face.

Many are tagged greedy. He therefore advised Christian leaders to be content in their quest for power.

“Why is Christianity growing in this country, yet clouded with greed, foul talk, pride and corruption? Some so-called men of God have devised means of extorting money from their church members. They keep on getting richer while their members become poorer. What is all this!”, he lamented.

He was speaking at a durbar and thanksgiving service of the centenary celebration of the Asante Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana.

Over 9.7 million of the country’s population are Christians. A number of politicians who find themselves in this category are mostly tagged as corrupt.

“As Chairman of the Christian Council, anytime we meet people in the public space, the non-Christians chide us. They wonder why over 71% of Ghanaians are Christians but there is more corruption. The greed amongst us even shocks me! We want every material thing for ourselves. We hoard heaps of items in our houses and garages. Where are we going with all this? Can’t you ever say it’s okay?” he quizzed.about:blankReport Ad

The Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, urged Ghanaians to desist from tagging only politicians as corrupt.
