During the weekend, some people were seen dancing to Stonebwoy’s ‘Kpo Keke’ in a church.
Although many people have criticised the church members, Stonebwoy replied critics saying there was nothing wrong with the people dancing to secular songs in church, saying the body is rather the temple of God and not the building.
Gospel musician, Rev. Emmanuel Kyei Boate known in showbiz as Quesi Boate, has called out Stonebwoy on his comment saying when Paul the apostle of Christ said the body is the temple of God, he did not mean the body is a church.
He explained, God dwells in those who have accepted the lordship of Jesus Christ and it is only when those people come together that they become a Church.
When thieves decide to go into a church building and say a word of prayer and have a meeting, that does not make that gathering a church service, he asserted.
“If you want to theologize I beg please learn your theology well. The church is not an individual. Whoever told you that lied to you,” stated Rev. Kyei Boate, who is also a preacher at the Bolgatanga branch of the Pentecost International Worship Centre (PIWC).
He added the called out people live like Jesus did, “we demonstrate priestly tendencies and operate as priests giving reverence to God” and hence cannot dance to a song like ‘Kpo Keke’ which gives no glory to the Almighty.
The gospel singer also said people who are temples of God, are tasked to honour God with their bodies.
He called out to other religious leaders to join hands and define things right in society.
