Rev. Frimpong-Manso urges Ghanaians to eschew ethnic sentiments in the society


Right Reverend Dr Yaw

Frimpong-Manso, Moderator of General Assembly of

Presbyterian Church of Ghana, on Sunday, urged Ghanaians to

eschew ethnic sentiments that tended to create disunity in society.

He said “The ethnic sentiments that continue to generate

'flames' at various parts of the country must give way to

reconciliation and respect for one another”.
Rt-Rev. Frimpong-Manso made the call when delivering the

sermon on the theme, “The Cleansing Hand of Jesus,” at the

dedication of a 250,000 Ghana Cedis chapel for Salvation

Congregation of Presbyterian Church of Ghana at New Achimota

in Accra.
It was financed through offertory, voluntary contributions and

donations by the congregation.
Rt-Rev. Frimpong-Manso pointed out that any ethnic group in

the country was a divine act and despising any ethnic group was

an indictment on God's plan.
He said the Church was an important example where Christians

fellowship together in unity and fully with the Lord in a covenant

Rt-Rev. Frimpong-Manso urged Christians to seek God's

guidance in achieving their goals in life instead of bemoaning their

weaknesses and past failures.
He said Christians could only overcome social and spiritual

problems when they put on the whole armour of God.
“The forces of evil that assail us today such as armed robbery,

alcoholism, occultism and ethnocentrism are too real to be

ignored. We are powerless over the demons that afflict us with

these problems, so we need Jesus Christ who has a superior

power to help us,” he said.
Rt-Rev. Frimpong-Manso advised Christians to be humble

and obey God to receive His mercy and blessings.
“No Christian is totally independent, we need help from each

other and the body of Jesus Christ which is the church functions

well when members work for their common good,” he said.

Rev. Joseph Oduro-Awisi, New Achimota District Minister of

the Church urged Christians to emulate King Solomon and

contribute to the building of the house of God and be more

dedicated to God's work.
