It could be recalled that a video of one man of God flogging two adolescents in his church went viral on social media this past week. Many have given their take on this subject and Apostle General Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah also had something to say.
He didn’t mention the name of the man of God who was involved in that act but said,he heard such a video has gone viral on the internet.
Addressing the issue yesterday in church ,the man of God and founder of Royal House Chapel stated that,it was a wrong thing to whip people in the church in this modern era to the extent that one of the people who was been beaten had his shirts off,because they were involved in a sexual act which has led to pregnancy.
Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah stated that,whipping a fornicator in church is not the best as it means they are been driven out of the church. If they are needed to stay in the church,the best thing wasn’t to whip them openly but teach them the right thing by preaching to them.
We could say for a fact that,there are sinners in every church and so when we know this particular person has commited this crime, does the person need to be whipped? NO! The Holy Bible even makes us understand that there is none righteous here on earth,so the best thing is to scold them and make them know that it was a sinful act, and then teach them the word.
Even in John chapter 8,when a woman who was caught in adultery was brought to Jesus, He didn’t condemn her but rather asked her to go and sin no more.
Remember in John 2:13-21, Jesus whipped the people selling cattle,sheep, pigeons and the moneychangers sitting at their table? Yes, He did that to drive them out of the temple as He ordered that they should be taken out. SO why then do you whip someone who you still want in the church,but not teaching the person what the word says to keep them?
Anyway, Rev. Sam Korankye Ankrah has called out that he is ready to look after the two adolescents, pay their fees and also take care of their to be born baby. He said that’s what they need, above all,they have to be respected and honored to become great personalities not disgraced in public.
From what the man of God had to say about this subject,what are your thoughts? Is he right or the best thing was what the couple received?
