A video emerged online of Pastor Mensa Otabil of ICGC saying born again Ghanaian Christians are fools–and that such people go to prophets to give their monies to them.
And just last week at ICGC’s Greater Works in Accra, images showing Otabil and his church asking for offering starting from $5,000 for the ‘millionaire status’, $1,000 for ‘seed of a thousand times more’ – plus many others in decreasing order of what you pay.
At one hand, Otabil says Christians who go and give their monies to prophets are foolish and at another, he’s taking huge amounts of money from these same Christian–indicating he’s allowed to take from them but other men of God are not.
Commenting on this, Founder and Leader of the Glorious Word Power Ministry International, Rev. Owusu Bempah has expressed utmost surprise and disappointment in Dr Mensah Otabil, General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church–saying he is some sort of hypocrite who does not respect prophets.
According to Bempah, just at Otabil is confident he’s a true man of God as a teacher of the word, others including himself have also been chosen by God as prophets. And if Otabil is allowed to take monies from church members, why should he speak against other men of God doing the same?
