Most Christians not living the life of Christ – Dr. Nkansah
What is ironic that churches across the country were filled to capacity on Saturdays and Sundays, yet the ills in society continue to rise, Rev. Dr. Anokye Nkansah, the Chairperson of the Asante-Akyem Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, has stated.
Dr. Nkansah who was speaking at the 100th anniversary of the Christ the King Congregation of the Church at Morso in the Asante-Akim South Municipality, said Christians must go beyond regular church attendance and serve as ambassadors for Christ.
The anniversary which was held under the theme, “Let the Earth Hear; a Century of God’s Faithfulness” was to take stock of the church’s 100 years existence and chart a new course for the growth of the church.
It also sought to raise funds for the construction of an ultra-modern auditorium for the activities of the various departments of the church.
Dr. Nkansah said it was worrying that those involved in various forms of corruption in public offices shamefully belonged to one church or the other.
He said people became rich and owned properties overnight after taking public offices but families and close associates who had counselled them to stay away from greed, were sadly singing their praises.
The Clergyman said it was common these days for parents to turn blind eyes as their daughters left home in indecent dresses and even snatched people’s husbands.
Moral decadence and indiscipline, according to him, were on the ascendancy as teachers, parents and other personalities expected to be role models for the young ones were involved in all sorts of malpractices.
The Reverend Minister urged Christians to keep faith with the Lord and lead the crusade for change by serving as good examples for others to emulate.
This, he noted, would go a long way to inject sanity in society and propel national development.
