The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram constituency, Hon. Sam Dzata Nartey George breaks silence on the ongoing controversial national cathedral brouhaha.
According to the prolific lawmaker, the role of the cathedral is chiefly to serve God in the community, through its hierarchical and organizational position in the church structure. The building itself, by its physical presence, symbolizes both the glory of God and the church but unfortunately, the men of God and the church were misled. The foundation of the building is now the money-making machine for the ruling NPP Government.
According to the MP, He has tried to be silent on this Cathedral matter but honestly believes it is about time the Church distances itself from the blatant theft and robbery going on in the name of GOD.
This is because They claimed to have paid Award-winning gospel artist Dr. SONNIE BADU $50,000 for a song ministration at the launch in the US. Now he has come out to say he was not given a dime and not even a seat was offered to him and his team. So, who took the $50,000? Surely the Trustees do NOT know about this!
Again, they claimed to have paid GHS30,000 to each of the gospel artists who ministered at the launch here in Accra. Can those artists also confirm if they received these monies?
According to the indefatigable communicator, He shall return with even more questions but the Church and the Fathers of the faith must be minded by the spirit of Ananias and Sapphira. Accountability is a bedrock of the faith. A temple of truth, holiness, and piety cannot be built on a foundation of unholy lies, deception, and financial opacity.
Speaking to DFS Live News, a digital foot soldier on social media, described the ruling party as a government of fraud and confidence tricksters! Jail is too near for some people in this government.
According to her, It is obvious that President Akufo Addo and his deceptive government have now arrived at the conviction that building a National Cathedral to please God is what would revamp an economy that is sinking at a supersonic speed due to massive corruption and other Godforsaken activities.
Cathedral Building as an Expression of Faith cannot resurrect Ghana’s economy.
There was always a faction among the pious that disapproved of excessive spending on the construction and decoration of lavish religious buildings, but these were a minority, and the dominant feeling was one of great enthusiasm, ambition, and a desire to excel in this quest to construct magnificent buildings reflecting God’s glory which some people see as a tool for making money at the expense of the taxpayer.
The problem we face as a nation is not National Cathedral, but indiscipline, corruption, mismanagement of resources, and the rest.
