Duncan-Williams was heard and seen apologising to the Muslim community in the country and allegedly went further to commend Islam, adding that he often used Muslims as positive examples in his sermons and stressing Christians were to emulate them.
According to the NACCC, the said video has been distorted to create the impression that the archbishop has renounced his faith.
The self-declared ‘father of charismatic Christianity’ in West Africa had allegedly made some damning statements on Islam in an undated sermon posted to social media, provoking anger within the Ghanaian Muslim community.
The Coalition of Muslim Organisations in Ghana (COMOG) were quick to condemn the sermon, describing it as “a bundle of reprehensible fallacies and a vicious misrepresentation of Islamic practice of prayers and worship.”
Duncan-Williams subsequently backtracked in a video, where he is heard and seen apologising to the Muslim community in the country and allegedly went further to commend Islam, adding that he often used Muslims as positive examples in his sermons and stressing Christians were to emulate them.
However the NACCC in a statement, has asked the public to ignore the said video.
“…The National Association of Charismatic and Christian churches and Action International College of Bishops are dismayed that a carefully edited version of the video recording of the meeting has been put on social media by certain individuals who have no understanding of the wisdom and maturity and counsel behind such gestures to create the impression that Archbishop Duncan Williams, chairman of the NACCC, who was at the meeting and also offered an apology has denied his faith, this is far from the truth,” the statement noted.
“It is the position of the NACCC and ACI college of Bishops that those behind the said video did not get the full video and therefore were misled into drawing such conclusions or are deliberately distorting the truth to achieve a certain aim", the statement added.
