Pastor Michael Sagoe, host of ‘Live Praise’ aired on Live FM, has described the latest hairstyle of gospel musician Gifty Osei trending on social media as inappropriate.
According to him, as a gospel musician, she must play the role of a model and a preacher to the youth.
He said as a Christian artiste, Osei must reflect godliness by dressing in modesty and also focus on her inner beauty than the outer appearance.
In an interview with the DAILY HERITAGE newspaper last Monday, Pastor Sagoe said Christians ought to look good and modest to glorify God’s richness and glory because God created people in His own image and likeness.
He said he believes that “the Bible said we are supposed to dress in a way to influence people positively. But it’s unfortunate how some gospel musicians in Ghana are following the fashion trends, forgetting they are ministers of God.
“The youth look up to these ministers of God ( a gospel musician or a pastor) and therefore their apparel must not catch attention because it is outrageous but should be moderate as Paul said in the scriptures how the women of old such as Sarah and Haggai dressed,” he said.
He referred to 1Timothy 2: 9 and said, “I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes.”
He asked Christians to read the scriptures so they can conformed to the mind of Jesus Christ.
“Our purpose is to imitate Christ as Christians, Something Paul learned to do as recorded in 1 Corinthian 11:1,” he said.
