Shun dependency mentality-Pastor Josh Obeng

Ghana Religion News-Pastor Josh Obeng, Associate Pastor at Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC) has advised Christians to reject anything that causes them to be dependent on men or the systems of the world for their survival.

According to him, Christians should wholly depend on God and work with the talent they have to ensure they are able to do well in life.

The idea of always seeking for favors or aid from others to enable them do well, the Servant of God said is nothing but a dependency mentality.

Speaking to the church’s congregation at Ayigya, suburb of the Kumasi Metropolis, Pastor Josh urged the church to be dependent only on God by deploying the talents imbedded in them to work.

‘’God wants us to be solely dependent on him but not on systems and wisdom of the world for our survival’’, Pastor Josh intimated.


The CCC Pastor asked Christians to take responsibility for the lives they lead so they do not become a burden on any individual.

Responsibility, the Youthful leader noted was the antidote to the dependency mentality that most Ghanaians possess.

Drawing lessons from Exodus chapter 32, the CCC Pastor said the Israelites always messed up anytime Moses went away from them when they were going to the promise land after leaving Egypt.

The Israelites, he noted played the blame game anytime Moses returned to see their wayward and ungodly attitude.

‘’It is surprising that anytime Moses went away the people of Israel messed up and when he came back to rebuke them they played the blame game’’, Pastor Josh reminded the church.


Pastor Josh admonished Christians to bank their hopes in God and believe the promises he has made to them.

Doubting God, the CCC Pastor noted is a grave sin in the sight of God since that indicates unfaithfulness on his part.

He, therefore, cautioned the Church to hold God to his word and obey all that he commands them if they want to realize what he has promised them.

‘’God’s greatest obsession is to be believed and those who put their trust in him will by no means miss their blessings or miracles’’, the CCC Pastor noted.
