In a heartfelt and self-recorded video posted on social media, the renowned pastor attributed the recent collapse of his church to what he described as an 'unwise' confrontation with the politician.
Obinim cries about his church's 'collapse', blames it on fight with Kennedy Agyapong
Bishop Daniel Obinim, the Founder and Leader of the International Godsway Church, opened up about the devastating impact of his ongoing legal battle with Assin Central lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong, lamenting it has virtually collapsed his church.
In the emotional video, Obinim expressed deep regret over the attrition rate in his church membership, revealing a significant decline in attendance. He disclosed that his congregation had dwindled from thousands to barely two hundred people. The religious leader suggested that his diminishing relevance was a direct consequence of the financial strain incurred during his legal clash with Agyapong.
Obinim divulged that he had engaged the services of seven different lawyers to represent him in the legal battle, each demanding a minimum of twenty thousand cedis before stepping into the courtroom. The financial burden, coupled with the emotional toll of the prolonged feud has reportedly left the pastor in a precarious position.
The bishop passionately advised others to carefully assess the strength of their opponents before engaging in any form of conflict or litigation. He emphasized the need for individuals to gauge their capacity to withstand the potential consequences of such disputes, drawing from his own experience.
Kennedy Agyapong, a prominent figure in Ghanaian politics known for his vocal stance on various issues, has not publicly responded to Obinim's recent statements.
As the legal battle continues, Bishop Obinim faces the daunting task of rebuilding his church and restoring the trust of his congregation. The aftermath of this publicized feud raises questions about the intersection of politics and religious leadership, prompting discussions on the impact of personal conflicts on the institutions they represent.
