Don’t shun politics as Christians – Pastor Olawore

Accra, July 7, GNA – Pastor Michael Olawore,
the General Overseer of the New Wine Church, has said Christians constitute the
chunk of nationhood and should not shy away from politics.

He said it is important for Christians to
participate and contribute in the decision-making process and refrain from
branding it as “dirty game.”

He said by so doing, they would have the
mandate to make incisive decisions on the material wealth and the resources of
the nation.

Pastor Olawore said this at a seminar on
wealth creation organized at the Harvest Chapel International at Tesano in
Accra.

The seminar was held under the theme: “Walking
in Divine Provision” and forms part of the annual event organized by the church
to enrich the lives of the members on finance and business management.

Pastor Olawore said he wondered why many
Christians were struggling when their heavenly father owns all the valuable
earthly resources and the power to get wealth.

He urged Christians to reconsider the way they
relate to God in connection with money saying “God does not need our money and
the day he has a need he ceases to be God.”

Pastor Olawore said many Christians are
struggling financially because of misappropriation of money and “as Christians
we should not say we are serving God if we are not doing so with our
treasures.”

Pastor Olawore said it is never the intention
of God for Christians to struggle financially and that God is looking for
people to channel his blessing through them, however, our attitude towards
money would reveal whether we love God.

He urged Christians to be mindful of the fact
that they are stewards of money and not the owners and that they should use
money to serve good purposes in the house of God.

“Many Christians do not understand the purpose
of money so they are going about promoting world values instead of promoting
the kingdom of God with their wealth,” he said, adding “anytime God talks about
money, he is not interested in taking our money but rather to assess our
hearts”.

Touching on borrowing, Pastor Olawore admonished
Christians to shun money borrowing to buy things that depreciate in value and
could impoverish their future.

Reverend Fitz Odonkor of the Harvest Chapel
International urged participants at the seminar to continue to remain steadfast
in planting the seed, their tithe, so as not to cut the flow of their financial
blessings.
