Andrew Campbell said corresponding to lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transsexual, strange and intersex (LGBTQI+) that he can’t censure the individuals who take part in the training since everybody is an offspring of the Almighty God.
He said he petitions God for everybody including gay people since all individuals were made in the ‘ resemblance and picture of God.’
When requested to give his message to Ghanaians on the continuous debates about LGBTQI, he told TV3’s Johnnie Hughes on the New Day show on Friday October 15 that “Everyone is an offspring of God. In the event that you read Ephesians 2 :10, it says you are God’s show-stopper.
“Along these lines, Paul says all of us is show-stopper. You read Psalm 8, it says God made us in his picture and similarity.
“We are totally made in the picture and resemblance of God thus, regardless of what your identity is, you are an offspring of God.
“Regardless of whether you are a whore, whether you are a detainee, wherever I have gone I have given everyone trust, not what your identity is. Indeed, even censured cells, individuals in terminating crew, I didn’t denounce them, I didn’t censure those young women at Cantonment, I didn’t say you are messy. I never judge anyone, I am not there to pass judgment, I am there to help you, I am there to energize you.
“Like those young women that came to chapel, they let me know each Christmas they offer presents to the needy individuals, each Christmas they go to the Osu Children’s Home and other spot s and they give presents, this is from the whore and they go to chapel. Why should I censure them? I attempt to get them off the roads so I implored with them. So the equivalent to our dear siblings and sisters who are censured, I won’t denounce them. What they do isn’t right.
“Christ said love the heathen however disdain the wrongdoing. That is My main thing. I possess energy for everyone regardless of what your identity is, I possess energy for you, I supplicate with you and energize you, you are an offspring of God and God loves you.”
