???????Right Reverend Thomas Brew Forson, Tema Diocesan Bishop of the Methodist Church, Ghana has appealed to Christians to shift their focus from vain merry making during Christmas to meditation on Christ?s offer of salvation.
???????Whew, what a nice appeal from a minister of God to all particularly in such season where a lot of social vices are leading many people to trouble.
????????But the question many people are asking the bishop is whether Christians should focus on Christ so that they the clergy would focus on money, foreign appointments, foreign citizenships and factionalism in the church?
???????It sounds funny how these ministers of God tells Christians to demonstrate the true principles of Christ whiles they go contrary by focusing on physical and material things without any body checking them.
??????There has been series of reports about ministers of the gospel betraying and defrauding the church in the name of Jesus Christ, some have committed serious adulatory with members wife?s as against the bible, some of them have defected from the church they were sent to officiate in overseas in order to switch nationality all scattering God children instead of uniting them.
?????It is so sad to observe how some of Bishop Brown Forson?s colleagues are seriously fighting over church money with some leaders in some societies abroad instead of preaching the gospel to save souls for Christ.
?????Is Bishop Thomas Brown Forson aware of serious disillusions and divisions created among members of the church by his own colleague pastors and ministers of the gospel in foreign destinations instead of focusing on Christ?
?????How can reverend ministers of the gospel ordained to supervise a society abroad decides to defect from the church after his term has elapsed if they are focusing on Christ?
?????Bishop Forson, who are those washing the private parts of married women in the name of blessing them with babies, shaving the private parts of married persons for miraculous prayers and charging huge sums of money for consultations? Are they not your colleague ministers?
??????Really it is so funny looking at the way these ministers? appeal to their followers to exhibit the principles of Christ whiles they exhibit vice which are creating big problems for the church and the society in general.
??????Although Right Reverend Thomas Brown Forson?s appeal to all make sense, I think is time for the clergy to look within and remove all the cobwebs to become clean and set a typical example for their followers to learn from after all Jesus caned those who were messing up in the temple.
???????By so doing it will make their work smooth whereby after preaching the gospel it will bear fruits for all to see.
