General Secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong has advised “pastors who give out lotto numbers” to desist from the act, describing it as ungodly.
According to him, it is unbiblical for a man of God to be giving out lotto numbers under the guise of prophesy.
“…Then now you have pastors who give out lotto numbers in the name of prophesy. If we are into betting, let’s say we are into betting, if we are into gambling, let’s say so,” he bemoaned in an interview on Morning Starr with Kafui Dey, Tuesday.
He continued: “And if you read the Bible, the Bible says freely you have received, freely you must give.
“So if I’m a pastor, I don’t expect that to happen in church. If anything must be given, it must be given freely”.
In his view, it is also wrong for pastors to ask members to line-up and make payments before they prophesy onto their lives.
Opuni-Frempong who is leading the ‘Ghana-We-Want’ campaign being waged by the Christian Council urged his colleague pastors to live a life beyond reproach.
