Presiding Bishop of the Methodist Church Ghana Most Rev. Dr. Paul K. Boafo has declared that the Methodist Church is strongly against prophecies that threaten lives or cause fear in people.
“It’s very unfortunate that we always concentrate on the negative more than the positive that comes into our lives. We are against prophets and men and women of God who come out with death prophesy”. Most Rev. Dr. Paul K. Boafo Presiding Bishop of Methodist Church Ghana has said
According to the Presiding Bishop, Christians must always look up to the positive things that life brings them than the negative.
For the past few years, doom prophesies on December 31 have become common and popular among some major Ghanaian men of God.
These prophesies have dynamically centred on celebrities and prominent people which at the end most of the do not come to pass.
This situation some time causes fear and panic on the people the supposed prophesies are made about and also create panic in the public mostly their followers or fans.
However, Most Rev. Dr. Paul K. Boafo speaking on the issue on JoyNews in an interview monitored by MyNewsGH.com said the Methodist Church is against such act.
“As pastors and men and women of God, we believe that God in his own wisdom will not bring us into deadly calamities and things that are causing more harm death and all that. That is why we are even against prophets and men and women of God who come out with death threat prophesies and all that. Because we serve who is always alive and making sure that his people live in peace with him”, Most Rev. Dr. Paul K. Boafo said.
