Founder and leader of Glorious Word and Power Ministry, Rev. Isaac Owusu Bempah has replied former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan over an advice he was alleged to have given to ‘church goers’.
Few days ago, Asamoah Gyan, shared a piece of advice to Christians in which he urged them to do more of philanthropic works than dashing huge sums of monies to pastors.
In this wild video which definitely didn’t sit down well with many pastors, the professional footballer stated with firm emphasis that these supposed men of God use the monies from their church members for their own independent pleasures which I strongly believe he is not far from the truth.
In the video, Gyan additionally added that many of the luxury cars these doom prophecies ride in comfortably are sponsored by church offertory.
Rev Owusu Bempah who appears to be offended by Asamaoh Gyan’s submissions has made a video to refute the soccer maestro’s claims.
In a sharp rebuttal, Owusu Bempah said Gyan exhibited ignorance, quizzing if he played football for free.
He said just like every worker benefits from their talent, pastors should also enjoy from their God-given gift.
“Those who watch you at the stadium pay gate fees; not all of them are rich. Why have you not adopted the policy that poor people should watch you for free? Pastoral activity is a serious business. I preach, deliver and render other services.”
“I have a family of my own. None of the vendors have ever given me free gift by virtue of the fact that I am a pastor: so for that, we need the finances. Sometimes, the offertory is not solely for the pastor’s upkeep. We fend for families and congregants too. So my brother [Asamoah Gyan] when you see a pastor in an expensive car, don’t envy because no one envies you.”
That said, Owusu Bempah called on Asamoah Gyan to retract his statement, saying it was a ‘big mistake’.
