Churches playing ‘numbers game’
Outspoken baptist minister Rev. Vincent Wood, says some church leaders are “bewitching” members into believing they have the best church based on nothing more than numbers.
He made the charge during a live broadcast service from the Emmanuel Baptist Church, on President Kennedy Drive, St Michael, yesterday on the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation’s radio station Q100.7.
Delivering a sermon entitled The Prophet’s Prerogative and basing his message on Numbers 11, Wood criticised both church leaders and rank and file members.
The pastor, who has been a Christian for more than 40 years, said some of his colleagues were more interested in playing the numbers game but serving God required more than that. It was second time he took his counterparts to task for their brand of Christian leadership.
