The General Overseer of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr. Mensa Otabil, has responded to the critics from the general public concerning a ‘Special Offering’ notice posted at the ongoing conference on the theme, “Greater Works”.
Preaching at ICGC’s Christ Temple on Thursday morning, Pastor Otabil told the congregation that belief can make all things possible.
“Beliefs goes beyond logic. Logic will tell you what is probable or things being equal.
“Logic will tell you that if you have a thousand cedis in your account, then you can spend thousand cedis because that is logical.”
“Belief will tell you that if you have five loafs of bread you can feed five thousand; that is not logical.
Now, many times if we say we believe, we believe according to logic, so even what you believe for is just a progression of logic,” he explained.
The notice, which promises different rewards for specified monetary offering, went viral amid heated debate over its appropriateness.
Beaming from LED screens at the Greater Works conference, the notice promised “Millionaire Status” for anyone who gave an offering of $5,000 or GHC21,500.
For “100% Life Improvement” believers would have to make an offering of $100 or GHC425.

Others were of the view that the poor was left out of the blessing and that is very unfair.
