Sam George, MP for Ningo Prampram

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram, Sam George, has thrown a challenge to the Speaker of Parliament, as well as his colleagues over attempts to regulate churches in Ghana.

Speaking on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem, Tuesday, the MP said he does not subscribe to the proposal by some MPs to regulate and control self-styled pastors, pastors and churches.

He is, therefore, challenging Professor Mike Ocquaye and his MP colleagues to show Ghanaians any pastor whose church is a member of any Christian group and has abused the name of God.

“The Speaker or my colleagues in parliament championing that course should show me one pastor who is part of Christian groups who has abused God’s work like kissing women all in the name of deliverance or flaunt their cars, none,” he challenged.

He believes pastors, who have refused to join the self-regulatory churches, are the ones abusing God’s word and so they should rather go after them.

“These fraud pastors, who refuse to join Christian groups, are the ones defrauding people with God’s work and so they should rather go after them instead of regulating all churches. Churches under these Christian groups won’t be involved in such acts and so they need to know the difference,” he charged.

The outspoken MP’s comments come on the back of calls by some legislators last week Wednesday on the House to consider enacting a law to clamp down on exploitative self-styled men of God and their churches.
