Should Bishop Charles Ellis Of Greater Grace Temple Of Detroit, Be Meddling In Politics?
Reader, should preachers stay away from politics? Wednesday, February 28, two prominent Detroit pastors, Rev. Oscar King, a previous president of the Council of Baptist Pastors of Detroit, and Bishop Charles Ellis of Greater Grace Temple in Detroit showed support for Gretchen Whitmer for Michigan Governor. Some on social media are accusing Bishop Charles Ellis of throwing the community under the bus.
I found the below comment in a Facebook group and thought it to be interesting, tell me what yall think? Can church leaders send a wrong message when they support candidates who don't seem to have the community best interest at heart?
Facebook: "Why is it Bishop Ellis consistently involved in local and state politics in the state of Michigan? Why is Bishop Ellis using the church to force good minded church followers to support political candidates that do not follow the Word of God? Why is Bishop Ellis forcing church members into hypocrisy against the faith they believe? Bishop Ellis like many other church owners in our great city continue to use the Word of God and God's house to exploit church members to support political candidates. Either you support the Lord or you support Satan. Bishop Ellis chooses Satan over God, and he, the Bishop, is taking church members down the path of damnation."Thoughts??
