As the General Secretary of the Association of Charismatic and Christian Churches, Rev. Gideon Titi-Ofei, is almost always in the news, giving insightful statements about national issues.
His roving message which is always dear to his heart is the issue of homosexuals.
His message to the nation Ghana and to Christians in particular is for them to love homosexuals but rather hate the act.
He states that Jesus Christ loved sinners but hated the act of sin so Christians should adopt a similar approach to the issue of homosexuality by loving homosexuals but hating the act of homosexuality.
He says gays are innocent people who are victims to some form of demonic influence.
He has also urged politicians to have moral authority and take a stand on issues like this.
He even hinted that the issue of homosexuality is a threat to national security, explaining “if all of us begin to marry the same sex, in the next 20 years, who will take this country to the next level? I am here because my father chose to marry a woman.”
Rev. Titi-Ofei has the ‘Papa’, Arch Bishop Nicholas Duncan Williams as one of his favored spiritual mentors.
