Ghanaians should not lump all pastors as bad- Dr Tetteh

Dr Lawrence Tetteh, an international evangelist, has noted that it is wrong to lump all religious leaders as unruly because of the transgression of one member of the Clergy. “Let us not crucify all religious leaders because it is not all of them that are wayward,” he told the Ghana News Agency in an interview in Accra at the weekend. Dr Tetteh is in the country for a crusade dubbed: “Ghana for Christ,” scheduled for February 2 at the Ghana International Trade Fair Centre in Accra. The crusade is being organised by the Worldwide Miracle Outreach and the Oral Roberts Ministries, in collaboration with the churches of Ghana to promote a platform for the promotion of strategic structures for the human resource development of the country. Reverend Dr Richard Roberts, son of the founder of the Oral Roberts Ministries and 30 other international pastors would confer with President John Evans Attah Mills as a sideline of the crusade. The international evangelist asked Ghanaians not to relegate to the background the role Christianity had played in nation building, saying the crusade would provide religious transformation for individuals and the nation at large and disseminate information on economics, education, among other issues to enhance the human resource base of the country. He asked politicians not under estimate the power of religious leaders considering their role in promoting a serene atmosphere for socio-economic development. Dr Tetteh in a related development congratulated the Black Stars for getting to the finals after a one nil victory over the Super Eagles of Nigeria. In a solidarity message he asked the team to stay focussed and bring home the ultimate prize of the tournament.
