General News of Saturday, 28 April 2012Source: Radio XYZ The bishop of the Obuasi Diocese of the Methodist Church, the Rt. Rev Stephen R. Bosomtwi-Ayensu has warned President Mills to reject the name ‘Asomdwehene’ or face the wrath of God.
Rt Rev Bosomtwi-Ayensu said the name, which means “King of Peace” must be used by none other than Christ.
Speaking to XYZ News, Rt. Rev Bosomtwi-Ayensu said he is pleading with Ghanaians who continuously refer to the President as ‘Asomdwehene’ to stop or will subject President Mills to God’s wrath.
“The title belongs to our Lord and God and if any man tries to use this title on himself then he is being blasphemous” Rt. Rev. Bosomtwi-Ayensu said.
He added that “I have not heard him [President Mills] use it, my problem is with people who are calling him ‘Asomdwehene’ because those people are doing him a disservice”.
Rev. Bosomtwi-Ayensu also stated that the former President of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi who was brutally killed by rebels met his untimely death because he referred to himself as ‘”King of Kings”.
“Look at Gaddafi, he called himself as King of Kings and his end was not good”.
“I am just advising Ghanaians not to incur the wrath of God on our President. He must reject the name and have his peace because he is not in contention with anybody”.
