The Chairman of the Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) International, has asked Ghanaians to show to love to their neighbours, communities and to demonstrate the same virtue at their work places in the New Year.
“This is because where the love of God prevails, there is no room for evil machinations such as corruption, hatred, malice and other vices,” Apostle Stephen Kwame Amoani said.
In a New Year message on the theme: “Rediscover the power of impartation,” he said 2016 is an election year “and we trust and believe the Lord God Almighty who has always watched over elections in our dear nation will once again see us through a peaceful election come November/December 2016”.
“However, I take this opportunity to caution all political parties to be decorous in their political campaigns and preach and practice peace to all their followers.”
Apostle Amoani said the CAC International would work hand in hand with all churches and religious bodies, especially the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, as well as all non-governmental organisations to stimulate tolerance and peaceful co-existence before, during and after the general election.
“Ghana is a country endowed from God, hence I encourage our leaders to be God fearing and seek God in all things for his directions especially during and after the elections to be able to continue to enjoy the peace the nation has.
“The church will equip members to demonstrate the love of God for mankind because one cannot make any meaningful impartation without love. Without love you can’t send the message of God to others.”
Apostle Amoani said in as much as the church and all other religious bodies pledge their support, prayers and commitment to use the pulpits to preach and teach their members on the upcoming elections, “I also encourage politicians to desist from the name calling, insults and tagging of pastors and religious leaders to political parties when they try to caution them”.
“Pastors and religious leaders serve as gate keepers/watchmen for every country as stated in 2 Kings 7:10-11 and should not be ridiculed and tagged when pastors comment on national issues.
“As we go into elections may we be guided by the prophecy of Isaiah and pray that Ghana will still hold its integrity and be more peaceful before, during and after the 2016 general election.
“I wish President John Dramani Mahama, Cabinet Members, Ministers, Members of Parliament, the Judiciary, the Security Services and every Ghanaian a very happy new year.
“To the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council, the Christian community and para church organisations and to all religious bodies as well as members of the Christ Apostolic Church in particular I wish you a happy new year.
“My prayer is that the year will usher our dear nation into Gods unmerited favour in our quest to build a better society. May God continue to bless his Church and our dear nation, Ghana and may the coming years be our best ever yet,” Apostle Amoani said.
