Over the weekend, the founder of the International Gods Way Chapel, Bishop Daniel Obinim said on TV that he can transform to a snake and bite people as and when he wishes. He gave an instance where he transformed into the reptile and appeared in the room of someone with Jesus Christ, who he claims also converted to a lion.
The claim did not sit well with many on social media as various post updates kept questioning what the man of God said. Recent to question the claim is outspoken UK High Commissioner, Jon Benjamin. This is the tweet he posted yesterday.
Earlier today, Rev Dr Paul Frimpong Manso of the Northern Ghana Bible College of Assemblies of God at Kumbungu in the Northern Region criticized the claims by Obinim. According to him, such actions are not from God and as such anyone who tows that lane is not from God.
Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, the Chairperson of the Asante Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana also joined in to call for regulations of churches in Ghana. According to him, such claims by men of God make it necessary to institutionalize a way of ordaining pastors.
Pastor Obinim has been in the center of numerous public scandals ranging from the vandalism of Hot FM’s equipment to public verbal exchanges with Afia Schwarzenegger.
