2018 has been that year one Christan leader after the other has been trolled online.
Obinim is a regular cast member, however, this year we’ve had Rev Oborfour, then we had Mensa Otabil with regards to the Capital Bank issue, then we had Rev Lawrence Tetteh whose boastful comments at Ebony’s funeral got people talking.
Now we can add the Bishop Dag Heward-Mills to the list of the trolled Christian leaders in 2018.
The Twitter handle of the Founder and Presiding Bishop of the Lighthouse Chapel sent a Tweet promoting one of his numerous books called “Demons and how to deal with them”.
The tweet was captioned “Depression and sadness are a result of demon activity”.

But a lot of people had an issue with the fact that the trained doctor turned man of God claimed depression and sadness are as a result of demonic activities.
Twitter went off on Dag Heward-Mills…
Are you sure you read medicine in school?

Depression is a medical condition. Do we ignore meds and only pray?

God told me in a dream this morning that you’ve disgraced him for saying this and he’s going to punish you severely for saying this.

However, some Twitter users also defended the man of God for his tweet.
Now to the 'Christians' calling him names, read Mark 5. There's a classic example of a madness caused by demons. That's only if you believe in the Bible as the word of God too.

That is the truth,it's only Jesus Christ that can save,run to Him and be save.

What are your thoughts? Did the Bishop err in blaming demons for causing depression and sadness?
