Ghana would have been in total spiritual darkness but for the presence of the church and Christianity, Rev Musah Yahya, the resident Pastor of Pentecost International Worship Center (PIWC) in Koforidua has said.
He was preaching on Sunday
December 29, 2019 at a Christmas Convention in Koforidua on the theme “We have
seen His Star” taken from Matthew 2:2
According to him, although it is true
that a lot of corrupt acts are being carried out by Christians in Ghana, the
country would have been in more darkness for the Church.
“Even though Christianity is
expanding in the nation yet there is corruption all over. It is true. They say
churches are increasing yet crimes are increasing. It is true. But the question
I want to ask is that, the church is the source of light for all the nations,
then by now if the Church is not there the nation would have been in complete
He admonished politicians to be
careful about their utterances against the church after campaigning on church
“Very soon we will be entering
into the political season, you will meet politicians coming to church to seek
for our votes but shortly after the election, they turn round to condemn the
same church. Without the church, the nation will be in a complete doom. The
church is the light of God. Anybody who downplays the role of the church in any
nation is ignorant”.
“Don’t let anybody downplay the
church. You have to shine as individuals and I need to also shine and since we
are in the church, our light will be so much all over that, darkness will be
faded away. If we don’t shine we will become like them, speak like the way they
speak but because we are the light if we shine our light will be brighter.
Don’t allow anybody to convince you”.
