Popular Ghanaian clergyman, Mensah Otabil has berated Christians who are in the habit of ‘tapping’ into the grace of other people.
Otabil while speaking at a church event recently, stated that it’s unscriptural to tap into other Christian’s grace, as the grace of God is available for all Christians to access.
According to him, it is unwise to tap grace from men of God and not from the source of grace itself.
In his words,
“These days I hear things from some Christians and it hurts me. My heart is wounded. People say things to me like ”Pastor, I want to tap into your grace. Sometimes they come and hold your feet. I say ”Are you crazy?”. What is wrong with you?My grace? Where did you read it in the bible? My Grace? It is the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
How we can read the bible and still be foolish I don’t get it. It is not as if the bible is a secret document. It’s there. Written plain white. And then you will say you are coming to tap into my grace. Me Mensah Otabil? Are you mad?
I live by the grace of God. If yu have to tap into grace, commonsensically go to the source. What’s wrong with your head. If you need grace, go to the giver of grace.”
