Apostle Amoani advises Christians to live above self-centredness

By Gideon Ahenkorah, GNA

Accra,
July 16, GNA – Apostle Dr Kwame Ntow Amoani, Chairman of the Christ Apostolic
Church International (CACI) has regretted that the church is gradually losing
its grip on society allowing leaders to exhibit high level of self-centredness.

He
said most Christian leaders in Ghana were not preaching the word that would
produce the dedicated Christian that would be committed to the Christian values
devoid of vices and malpractices including corruption, but were rather focusing
of things that would fulfil their selfish gains.

“People
placed in high positions should rather be spirit-filled to make an impact on
the society, especially in the communities in which they live”, he said.

Apostle
Amoani was addressing the thanksgiving service organised by the Accra South
territory of the CACI as part of the Centenary Celebration of the Church in
Accra on Sunday on the theme “100 years of impacting the world through
Pentecostalism”.

The
Accra South Territory consists of Nungua, Nima and Pig Farm Areas of the Church.

He
said many Christians failed to see God’s glory in their lives because they
refused to follow the steps of their forefathers, who were filled with the Holy
Spirit and were guided by it in all their endeavours.

Apostle
Amoani said the founders of Christianity, particularly the twelve Apostles who
included; Peter and John, pursued the desires of the Holy Spirit and were
consequently made strong and powerful to defeat all life challenges.    

“I
therefore challenge and encourage Ministers of the gospel to speak on the
wrongdoings of Ghanaians especially the leadership to help them to deliver on
their mandate of pushing the nation forward in her developmental agenda for the
benefit of all.”

He
urged Christians to do things in conformity with the core values of their
belief through the Holy Spirit, as demonstrated by their founders, adding that
those leaders focused on maintaining a direct relationship with God by living
according to the dictates of the Holy Spirit. 

Apostle
Amoani also challenged Christians to follow the principles of the Acts of the
Apostles as captured in the Holy Bible as a way of seeking spiritual
restoration to achieve God’s glory.

Mr
Vincent Sowah Odotei, Deputy Minister of Communications, who spoke on behalf of
the Minister of Communications, Mrs Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, commended the CACI on
her 100 years anniversary and called on the members to continue praying for the
country.

He
appealed to the Christian community to support government in its quest to
develop the country, because the leaders could not rely only on their academic
abilities, but also needed the directions of the Holy Spirit to deliver on
their mandate.

Mr
Odotei, who is also the Member of Parliament for La Dade Kotopon constituency
said: “We need the church to support the President to carry out his vision of
nation building for the benefit of Ghanaians and the future generation as
well”.

Apostle
Joseph Sakyi, Director of Christian Education of CACI led the congregation to
pray for the nation, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his team of
ministers and other national leaders.
