Being a Christian does not mean being brain disengaged

By Masahudu Ankiilu Kunateh, Ghanadot

A spiritual pastor in Adenta, a suburb of Accra, is in the hands of the police. This follows accusations that the so-called man of God is fond of fondling the private parts of his lady followers.

“What he does is that when the victims went for healing, he stripped them naked and covered their faces and asked them to sleep on a mat that he had spread in his consultation room. Then he will ask them to open their thighs, pour some concoction into their private parts and stir with his hands,” Superintendent of police, Stephen Ahiatafor has disclosed.

According to him, the said pastor whose name he will not disclose will ask victims to open their eyes after he brings out mysterious items he purports to have removed from their private parts.
He then attributes the childlessness of his victims to those mysterious items.

The spiritual pastor, police say has been practicing for 15 years.
The police superintendent has asked female victims of the church who have fallen prey to the wanton abuse by this pastor to assist with investigations.

This report comes barely a week after another Teshie based pastor was found guilty for ‘cleansing’ the private parts of his lady followers.

He was fined by the La Magistrate Court to pay an amount of GH¢ 600.00.

However, the General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Fred Deegbe has described as “unacceptable and regrettable,” reports about some pastors indecently fondling their female flock.
He told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show that it was unfortunate that people posing as pastors were taking undue advantage of vulnerable and gullible members of the society.

Rev. Deegbe’s remarks come in the wake of several reports about indecent behavior by some pastors.

Describing some of pastors as charlatans, Rev. Deegbe said God does not solve people’s problems by violating their privacy.
He cautioned Christians against submitting themselves to such violation in the name of religion because “being a Christian does not mean your brain should be disengaged.”

“God has no grandchildren, what that means is that everyone can pray to God and God can answer your prayer. Sure you do need people who can stand alongside you and pray with but don’t let people take advantage of you and do things that do not even make sense to you, ” he added.
