Methodist Clergy urges public to expose evils in society

Listen to article

Tema, May 15 GNA - A Reverend Minister of the Ebenezer Methodist Church at Lashibi near Tema on Friday night called on the public to always muster the courage to expose evils deals in society irrespective of the status of offenders.

This would bring sanity into the system which is gradually degenerating due to corruption, selfishness and serious offences secretly committed in the homes and offices, Reverend Kwesi Sakyi Appiah made the call at a three-day Salvation Crusade held by the Tema Circuit of the Church at Tema.

Preaching on the theme: "Living for Christ in the end time", he noted that the inability of Ghanaians to expose evil deals by people for fear that they would be targeted has plunged the nation into the present indiscipline state.

"In the offices we often hear of people pilfering and doing fictitious things while in the homes fathers abuse their daughters indecently and many others, yet we keep quiet over them."

He said if we continue to shield wrongdoers then the future of the nation would be bleak.

Reverend Appiah therefore admonished Ghanaians to re-examine their conscience and ask for forgiveness where they fall short and never to return to them again.

Turning to parents, the Reverend advised that a congenial atmosphere is created for learning and endeavour to monitor their children's activities so that they are not glued to the television and watch obscene pictures on the internet which contributes to indiscipline in the society. Rev. Ampaw Asiedu in-charge of the Saint Paul Methodist Church urged Ghanaians to prepare themselves adequately spiritually, physically, materially and psychologically in life. They prayed for the leadership of the nation and Ghanaians as a whole for a better future.
