Be circumspect on communication of prophecies – Police to Churches
The Ghana Police Service has entreated the general public, especially faith-based groups to ensure continuous compliance with the law as it relates to the communication of prophecies as the year 2022 draws to a close.
According to the Police, whereas everyone has the right to practice his or her faith in religion, freedom of worship and speech, this right must not be exercised in violation of the rights of others and the public interest.
With the public interest in mind ahead of December 31 watch night services which are often used by men of God to deliver prophecies, the police warned that religious freedom is still subject to Ghana’s laws.
Police in a statement commended the various religious groups for their cooperation over the period.
“This has contributed greatly to creating an environment where people are able to freely profess their faith without unnecessary anxiety and fear of impending harm or death.
“Ghana is indeed grateful to the religious leaders in particular and the religious community as a whole for their patriotic understanding of the situation,” it added.
