To compliment government effort to address corruption the country, the Bishop urged religious leaders to use the pulpits to preach on corruption.
“The churches must translate the theology of the pulpit to the daily lifestyle of the people. If we have 70 per cent of the population as Christians and our society is also corrupt and rotten like this, then there is something wrong. It means that our churches are not making the necessary impact,” he stressed.
Bishop Mensah therefore admonished churches to redefine the content and application of the messages they preach and make sure when ministers of God preach, it should address the social, moral, mental and spiritual issues of the people because if the pulpit could affect the lives of the people then there was no need in preaching the Gospel.
“I believe we need to redefine our messages because, the churches are agents of change which must drive change,” he emphasised.
According to him, corruption is beyond perception; it’s a reality, and government must be committed to fighting it. As a result, religious leaders must use their pulpits to fight it seriously with the message they give.
