The President of Maranatha College of Theology in Techiman, the Bono East Regional capital, Dr Stephen Sawiri said there were scores of false prophets and teachers in the Christian circles today because of laziness and impatient of church attenders.
Dr Sawiri noted that most people attended church with the sole aim of getting solutions to life challenges which confronted them and that when the miracles delayed, they would run to different churches for quick solution.
” when they roam from one church to the other, they will end up been harassed, assaulted, duped and sexually abused by these self acclaimed prophets and teachers thereby compounding their problems” he indicated.
Dr Sawiri presented an address on Saturday at the 3rd and 4th graduation, 5th matriculation and 2nd ordination service of Chapters of Destiny Bible College in Nkoranza on the theme, “maintaining what has been obtained”.
Dr Sawiri who doubled as the Coordinator of Maranatha Christian Church in West Africa, encouraged the graduates to share the word of God with people in the hinterlands and hard – to – reach communities.

He said it was the mission of the college to train believers and established them in the truth of God’s word and to enable pastors, lay preachers, church workers and every believer to rightly teach the word of God.
