I’m a proud catholic and will never be ashamed: John Dumelo replies critics who accused him of Idolatry

Ghanaian actor, John Dumelo, has responded to critics who lambasted and called him an idolater.

The newly married actor was replying to comments that trailed a recent Instagram post of him touching the feet of a statue of Christ in a church in Montreal.

Some people had accused him of being an idol worshipper and countered his Catholic faith and beliefs.

However, Dumelo on his Instagram page said that he is a proud Catholic and his beliefs and principles have brought him far and taking him further.

Dumelo also used biblical scriptures to back his faith and likened it to a particular woman with the issue of blood that touched the garments of Jesus and was made whole.

Read his post,

“I usually don’t respond to ‘negative ‘ comments on Instagram but these set of comments need clarification. I posted a picture of myself touching the feet of a statue Christ in a church in Montreal. Some people said it’s idol worshipping.

“Some said it’s blasphemy and others too said it’s occultism. If we all turn our Bibles to Matthew 9:20–22, it’s talks about a woman touching the robe of Jesus to be healed.

“She said, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed”. That was her faith. And her faith healed her.

“When we go to certain churches these days, anointing oil, water etc are sold. Some are asked to pray over these and apply them to be healed. What about those that touch Tv’s to be healed?

“Is that idol worshipping? Is that occultism? No, it’s all in your faith. Faith is such a big influence if used correctly. I’m a proud Catholic and I will never be ashamed of that.

“My Catholic beliefs and principles have brought me this far and it’s taking me further. We all believe in one God. No need to judge. God bless us all.”
