The General Overseer of Calvary Crusaders Ministry International, Bishop Dr Prince Baah has called on ministers of God to lift the standard of righteousness and holiness to encourage their followers to do same.
According to him, there is a certain standard of living that Pastors or church leaders must aspire to, if they are born again because, “you can be a pastor and you may not be born again.”
Bishop Baah said that, as a personal rule, he introduces himself as a reverend minister who is born again as not all pastors are born gain,
Speaking on ‘In the Light’, a programme on GTV Life, Bishop Dr Baah said “Whether you are a pastor, Church leader or a member we are required to live a holy and righteous life.”
Unfortunately today, he said, many pastors are not preaching holiness and righteousness even though it is a very important element they need to talk about to promote healthy Christian living.
“We don’t talk about righteousness and holiness but the person who is living a holy life is somebody who is walking healthy with God,” he noted.
According to him, just as individuals say they are healthy physically which depends on their eating habits, physical exercising among others, Christians are required to live a holy life to be spiritually healthy.
The man of God pointed out that, without holiness, it is impossible to walk with God so it does not matter whether “you are a pastor or member, you must walk with God in a healthy way which is walking in righteous and holiness”.
Touching on the attitude of some religious leaders and ministers of God, he indicated that, some of the ministers of God are really anointed but lack character which might cause them to fall, calling on such to humble themselves and operate in the anointing by living righteous and holy lives.
“Good character can sustain and lack of it can make you fall just like Sampson in the Bible,” he said.
Making reference to the bible, the Rev Baah who is also a member of the National Executive Council (NEC) of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council mentioned that, in Mathew 7: 2,” “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”
Consequently, he said, people would prophesy and even tell the day someone was born, cast out demons and do many miraculous work, but Jesus would say on the day of judgement, “depart from me, I never knew you”.
