Spiritual Churches have condemned what they term unnecessary attack on their way of worship by some Charismatic churches.
According to the spiritual churches, some Charismatic church pastors have constantly described their way of worship as fetish and non-Christian because of their use of traditional musical instruments, anointing oil and incense.
But they said despite the condemnation, the Charismatic churches have now turned to the use these anointing oils and incenses, and often sell them at exorbitant prices to their congregation.
The National Head of the Cherubim and Seraphim Church, Bishop Joseph Kinsley Awotwe and the founder of God Is Wonderful Ministry Int., Prophetess [Mrs.] Rasheeda Sackey who expressed the concern at Agona Swedru described the condemnation as unnecessary and without basis.
According to them, rather, the way of worship by spiritual churches have direct link with the Bible because it was the same way used to worship God since the early periods of the history of Israel till now, long before the advent of the Charismatic church and its introduction into Africa.
A certified Traditional Birth Attendant [TBA], Prophetess [Mrs.] Rasheeda Sackey attributed the condemnation to lack of understanding about the healing power of spiritual churches by the Charismatic churches.
