COMPLAINT AGAINST ARCHBISHOP WINKER AT LCC FOR AVAILING HIS PULPIT TO PRES. WEAH TO ALLEGEDLY INSULT CRITICS 

Date:

LIBERIA – Former ruling Unity Party’s Youth Congress Chairman has filed a complaint against Bishop Isaac Winker to the president of the Liberia Council of Churches (LCC) Rev. Dr. Samuel B. Reeves for over President Weah’s use of Archbishop Winker’s Dominion Church pulpit to attack critics.

Togar M. Cephas in his letter of complaint dated Thursday, December 22, 2022, accused Bishop Winker of availing his pulpit to President Weah to allegedly launch verbal attacks against political actors.

He accused also the Archbishop of constantly availing his pulpit to President Weah for alleged selfish and greedy gains, noting “The Church should not be used for commercial purposes but rather as a place of peace and unity and organizing charitable activities. Biblically, a pastor is a faithful steward ( Titus 1:7).”

Adding, “The Church should be a place of peace and not a medium for spewing hate messages.”

He called on the Liberia Council of Churches to take his complaint seriously because, according to him, such a situation risks damaging and denigrating the image of all other Churches in Liberia.

The former UP Youth Chair said he hopes that the LCC will give his letter urgent attention to avoid the imminent reputational damage that Bishop Winker is allegedly about to cause to all other Churches in the Country.

He claimed that the act is only unpatriotic, has the propensity to create more hate among citizens, and it is allegedly against the religious norms of Christian ethics.

“The pulpit in Christendom is a place where the voice of God is heard and the holy spirit uses the pulpit in such a way to communicate the rational Biblical message aimed at transforming lives and winning souls for the second coming of Christ.”
