The last days are here! The Bible is right! The Scriptures say that in the last days people will be boastful, proud, abusive and disobedient. It was, therefore, not surprise to me when in a particular church, the entire congregation decided to display outright disrespect for authority.
In that church, promiscuity and drunkenness was rife among members especially the youth. The Senior Pastor during a Sunday church service
preached: “If I had all the akpeteshie in the world, I’d take them and dump them into the river”. And the congregation cried, “Amen!”
“And if I had all the apio in the world, I’d take them and dump them in the river”. And the congregation cried, “Amen!”
“And if I had all the brukutu and Palm wine in the world, I’d take them all and dump them in the river”. Again the congregation cried, “Amen!”
“And if I had all the kasapreko and alomo bitters in the world, I’d take them all and throw them in the river”. And the congregation gave a thunderous shout, “Amen!”
The preacher sat down, and a deacon then stood up and said:
“For our closing hymn, let’s turn to page 126 of our hymn books and
sing, ‘We shall drink from that river.'”
The congregation screamed Halleluyah eiii!!!
I thought it was only this congregation that is discourteous and irreverent till I heard Opana at the burial of the Late JB. It was alright for him to praise President Mahama for doing good; that was not news anyway: it is the nature of the young man from Bole to touch lives, and everybody knows about that.
What infuriated me was the way he addressed the President of the Republic of Ghana and the Commander-in-chief of the Ghana Army. At least I expected him to show some little respect for the throne he is so much dreaming to ascend without success.
Hear him: “We thank Mahama for giving J.B. Danquah a befitting burial. We thank him very much for honoring our brother this way…”
Immediately he disrespected His Excellency by not according him his deserved appellation, I understood why he fell in a church; and I will prove it. Kikikikikiki, the Bible says in Psalm 5:5 that the arrogant cannot stand in the presence of God.
