Economic hardship has affected how much people pay for offering – John Mahama

Former President, John Dramani Mahama, has asserted that the present financial hardship in Ghana has taken a toll on choices to God. 

According to him, followers of Christ are unable to give enormous choices in church due to the financial hardship, which has affected the pockets of Ghanaians. 

He was talking at the one hundred and seventy fifth anniversary thanksgiving service of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Ho. 

“We must always spread Christian love, especially in this time, when money doesn’t like noise. Especially in this time when we all agree that times are hard. This is the time we must show our Christian charity by loving our neighbours as ourselves.

And so whatever little you have to share, you should share with your neighbour. I mean we could tell the hardship in the system from the appeal for funds.

When it was 2000, madam chair and a few people came and donated, then it came down to 1000, then to 500, then to 200 and 100. And when it got to the silver collection, 1 Cedi, 2 Cedis, the place was full, it shows that the pocket was not too good”, he said. 

Mr. Mahama, due to this fact, appealed to Christians to pray for him and the National Democratic Congress to win the 2024 general elections. 

This he said would allow him and the NDC rescue Ghana from the present financial hardship, rising inflation and sufferings. 

“After we pray for Pakistan, Moderator should also say a special prayer for me and for the NDC so that in some year that is just coming, luck will smile on us, God will smile on us and give us the power to come and rescue this country from the suffering we are going through” he said. 

Mr Mahama lauded the efforts of the E.P Church, Ghana, to the event of the country, particularly within the education and health sectors. 

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, Ghana, Rt. Okay Rev Dr. Lt. Col. Bliss Divine Agbeko (Rtd), suggested Christians to stay righteous followers of Christ and persevere to the very finish.

He additionally implored individuals in management positions to eschew corruption to earn a place in paradise including the church would proceed to shepherd its congregation for the widespread good of humanity.
