The Atebubu branch of the SDA church in the Brong Ahafo Region has sacked eight of its members including some Church leaders for selling anointing oil to innocent members.
The President of the Mid-North Ghana Conference of SDA, Dr Amoh Kyeremeh who disclosed this to Adom News’ Koofori Bossu Denkye said the use of anointing oil is not against their doctrines but when and how to use it.
He stated that the eight church members that include some church leaders were selling the anointing oil in the church.
According to him, the church leaders claim they have prayed over the anointing oil to protect members from any evil spirits.
He said the conduct of these members have brought the church into disrepute hence the only option was to sack them from the church to serve as deterrent to others planning same.
“Some members in our church and some leaders have resorted to selling anointing oil to innocent people claiming that they will be protected from evil spirits if they use it.
“Items like apple, orange and water were also sold by them after they claim they had prayed over them. Such behavior is against the doctrines of SDA and that is why they have been sacked” he said.
