I Don’t Support Any Political Party – Duncan Williams
The General Overseer of Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan Williams, has refuted claims that he has a political affiliation with one of the major parties in the country. He, however, disclosed that he is a constant victim of betrayal and ingratitude from people who benefit from his selflessness and benevolence.
According to the renowned man of God, political tags on him by some members of the Ghanaian society are deliberate attempts to limit his access.
“People say things with passion and conviction about you but I am not in bed with any party or politician,” he explained in an exclusive interview on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, on Friday.
Archbishop Duncan Williams stated the church is there to provide guidance to the government and politicians.
“I don’t believe the pulpit must be used for attacks or insult on those in authority but to tell politicians and government the truth,” he said.
Speaking on the role of the church in partisan politics, the man of God said: “the role of the church is to be the light and the salt on the earth and that is to speak truth to power.”
To Archbishop Duncan Williams, “we must have an understanding of our various callings and gifting with no need for rivalry.”
“I have dealt with a lot of betrayals. Heavy betrayals, ingratitude especially from people you go out of your way and help them, bless them and impart their lives. People that know that without you and your contacts, and the opportunity of you provided them they wouldn’t have stood up in life and no one would listen to them,” he disclosed.
He added that apart from showing ingratitude, they even go to the extent of trying to hide the fact that he once helped them.
“They don’t even want anyone to know that you were ever used to bless them. And the next thing is to stab you at the back. And they don’t want to even know that they know you. And they get offended that you were the one that was used by God to help them find their way. That offends them! And that hurts them that they didn’t make it on their own; that they made it through your contacts. So they have to find a way to silence you and wipe you out so the record that you were used to helping will never be there. Betrayals, ingratitude of the highest order,” he explained.
He said the betrayals have not deterred him from continuing to help and support people because helping people is the essence of living.
Asked how he deals with betrayals and ingratitude, he responded that he does through “mastering’ which helps him to recover and keep helping people.
“You learn mastering. You master it. Because if you don’t master it, it will kill you. It will stop you from helping others. But you have to keep helping people because that is the essence of living,” he noted.
Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has been a key person in the Charismatic movement in Ghana and has helped and mentored many men of God in the country and beyond. He has been a regular preacher and speaker at important events both locally and internationally.
