Thread: Is Christianity (Religion) making Ghanaians backward ?

    Default Is Christianity (Religion) making Ghanaians backward ?

    A Ghanaians life is so much engrossed in religion that we fail to focus on what is really important in life.

    In Europe and elsewhere religion is fashion. People go to church in Europe for 3 reasons:weddings,funerals and to get their kids into good schools. Apart from these they don't give a damn about God or religion.

    What about the average Ghanaian; we eat ,drink and sleep religion. To what end ? Is this sliding us into backwardness. How can you progress when you want God to do everything for you and thank him for what he hasn't done for you.

    Is Christianity more deadly than AIDS/HIV. Is it going to be the end of us?

    Religion thrives most when the general populace is poverty ridden,diseased and morally corrupt.Ghana is a classic example. People will buy into any religious mumbo jumbo, they will wash with the filthy bath water of some backwater prophet believing thier problems may end. "Kwame Peter" for lack of a better name with his 2 by 4 street psychology and demonic minnions charms and amulettes will brainwash his followers, sleep with all the women and promise them eternal life.

    All these have been predicted to happen as stated in Bible prophecy, however most "christians" have decided to go after signs and wonders rather than reading,studying and discovering the TRUTH which is the WORD of God. A quick fix is all people want these days. Ghana's religious terrain and that of the world is flourishing for all the wrong reasons. So called pastors are enjoying their ill gotten wealth eked from the sweat and toil of ignorant "believers" and would you blame them ?

    the prophet by khalil gibran


    ON RELIGION
    AND an old priest said, "Speak to us of Religion."
    And he said:
    Have I spoken this day of aught else?
    Is not religion all deeds and all reflection,
    And that which is neither deed nor reflection, but a wonder and a surprise
    ever springing in the soul, even while the hands hew the stone
    or tend the loom?
    Who can separate his faith from his actions, or his belief
    from his occupations?
    Who can spread his hours before him, saying,
    "This for God and this for myself;
    "This for my soul and this other for my body"?
    All your hours are wings that beat through space from self to self.
    He who wears his morality but as his best garment were better naked.
    The wind and the sun will tear no holes in his skin.
    And he who defines his conduct by ethics imprisons his song-bird
    in a cage.
    The freest song comes not through bars and wires.
    And he to whom worshipping is a window, to open but also to shut,
    has not yet visited the house of his soul whose windows
    are from dawn to dawn.
    YOUR daily life is your temple and your religion.
    Whenever you enter into it take with you your all.
    Take the slough and the forge and the mallet and the lute,
    The things you have fashioned in necessity or for delight.
    For in reverie you cannot rise above your achievements
    nor fall lower than your failures.
    And take with you all men:
    For in adoration you cannot fly higher than their hopes
    nor humble yourself lower than their despair.
    AND if you would know God, be not therefore a solver of riddles.
    Rather look about you and you shall see Him playing with your children.
    And look into space; you shall see Him walking in the cloud,
    outstretching His arms in the lightning and descending in rain.
    You shall see Him smiling in flowers, then rising
    and waving His hands in trees.
    statistics are what other people have chosen to make real.

    I'm struggling to answer this question...
    When one loses the deep intimate relationship with nature, then temples, mosques and churches become important.
