I read a publication in yesterday’s edition of the ModernGhana online news about a so-called pastor, the General Overseer of God’s Crown Chapel, Rev. Reindolph Oduro Gyebi, who claims that anyone who speaks against the controversial National Cathedral project, will die miserably or be put to shame by God.
I want to ask that pastor if Nana Akufo Addo told him that God asked him to build a Cathedral or he was he with the president when God spoke to Akufo Addo to build the Cathedral?
If Akufo Addo does listen to God or hears God's voice, Ghana wouldn't be in such a mess. Those who are close to God rule with wisdom.
I don’t know how Ghanaians pastors suddenly become prophets, whether self-claiming or through anointing because these so-called mushroom pastors are uncountable in Ghana.
I don’t think you are a prophet, Reindolph Oduro Gyebi, if you have the power, or a vision to see that anyone who criticizes the intended National Cathedral project will die, why don’t you use that power to help the president to save the thousands starving unemployed Ghanaians?
When I came to Ghana to bury my mother, where ever I passed, are uncountable signboards, pointing to many directions of worshipping places of the prophet this and prophet that.
I asked myself why every pastor in Ghana is a prophet and why is it that it is always in Africa we see such things?
I think I should have called myself a prophet too. Go to archives on Modern Ghana and search articles about Nana Akufo Addo by Joel Savage and you will see that whatever I wrote about the president and said will happen has come to pass.
Religion has defined our religious values in many ways but many Ghanaians are worshipping God in the wrong way. From Monday to Sunday, you will have church activities going on in many places in Ghana. What is wrong with the country?
Weekdays are for work, not for church service. If you are unemployed go and search for work, don’t think going to church from Monday to Sunday can provide you a job.
On one Sunday morning, I went to service at a Cathedral in the village on the outskirts of Rome, called SACROFANO. Being religious, the magnificent Cathedral attracted me to worship there that Sunday.
When I stepped into the place, the only person the pastor was preaching to was a woman. I joined her and the number of the congregation increased to two in one of the largest Cathedrals I have ever seen. That is the reality,
The Pope preaches each Sunday through the window at the Vatican City, the rest of the days are for work. You will see how hard Italians work if ever you visit Italy. So to telling me that I will die or God will punish me for criticizing a Cathedral is like a child speaking.
There are no jobs in Ghana, all the hospitals lacked modern equipment, this is one of the reasons Ken Ofori-Atta sought medical attention in a foreign country and the schools need better facilities.
As a prophet, you didn’t see any of this to talk about but only to speak evil against those that criticize a senseless Cathedral?
What roles have Christianity and Islam played in the lives of the majority of the people, if Ghana is one of the most corrupt countries in Africa? I feel very sorry for such pastors parading themselves prophets in Ghana.
