Former Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Rev. Frimpong Manso has said that if the Presbyterian Church of Ghana is a truthful Church, the Church will rescind its decision of cutting ties with him.
In 2015, the leadership of the Presby Church Ghana(PCG), had declared their intentions to severe ties with the pro-homosexual Presbyterian Church of the United States of America.
Against this backdrop, a letter was written by the Moderator of the Presby Church Ghana, Rt. Rev. Prof. Emmanuel Martey, to his predecessor who had been in Virginia on assignment, asking him to return to Ghana latest by December 31, 2015.
Rt. Rev. Emmanuel Martey the then Moderator had stated among other things that the Presbyterian Church of USA’s decision to ordain gay pastors, elders and deacons is not biblical and described it as ‘demonic’.
He maintained that the Presbyterian Church Ghana will not accept the act because it is a total “deviation from Bible principles.”
But Rev. Dr. Yaw Frimpong Manso in an interview then said the General Assembly did not accord him the needed respect before taking the decision to recall him from the USA and therefore decided that he will not come back to Ghana as demanded by the leadership of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana.
The then Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America, Rev. Yaw Nkansah, accused the then Moderator of the Presby Church in Ghana, Rev. Prof Emmanuel Martey of tarnishing the image of the church.
