Nimba County Senator Thomas Grupee is calling on church leaders to pray against corruption which has permeated every sector of the country, including the church.
Senator Grupee made the call on Sunday in Ganta, Nimba County during ground-breaking ceremonies for the construction of the Bethel World Outreach Church.
According to Senator Grupee, “corruption has become a way of life” in the Liberian society, something which, he noted, is responsible for the slow pace of development in the country.
The Nimba County lawmaker challenged church leaders to direct some of their sermons to messages against corruption, noting that when their congregations are regularly reminded that corruption is evil, they will desist from this vice.
Senator Grupee also called on Clergymen across the country to practice what they preach, if their messages are to impact their congregations and bring them to God.
“Corruption has now become a way of life in every sector of our society, even the church,” Senator Grupee told the audience.
“I am calling on you the church leaders to preach against corruption and also live exemplary lives, if your goal to lead people to Christ is to be met,” Senator Grupee challenged church leaders.
Meanwhile, Senator Grupee has made available L$50,000 to the Bethel World Outreach Church in Ganta as his initial contribution to the construction of a bigger edifice.
