One of the influential Pentecostal apostles in Ghana, Apostle Prof. Opoku Onyinah, has delivered his Easter message to Ghanaians in what can be seen as strong and powerful words.
Being the head of the largest Pentecostal Church in Ghana, this pastor has warned Christians and Ghanaian youths to "not to be swayed by sinful lifestyles packaged as modernity."
According to him, these lifestyles only get us sacrificing our souls to the devil. Here are some highlights of what the pastor stated.
1. The lives we live here will determine where we dwell, whether to be with the Lord or not.
2. The more you engage in drinking, smoking, exhibitionism, and engaging in deviant sexual lives, such as homosexuality and sexual immorality, the more you get frustrated.
3. This Easter, you must respect one another, offer a helping hand to the needy.
4. We must not accept lies from the evil one, in the name of modernity such as living individualistic lives, abandoning the family life, disrespecting one another or abusing one another.
5. Piercing our bodies in the forms of tattoos, and making ourselves half-naked do not bring joy and satisfaction.
6. You must not live as someone who does not believe in God and life after death. You must aim to resurrect to everlasting life with Christ.
Here in Ghana, millions of Christians will be making their way to Church to celebrate the Easter festivity and also commemorate the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity.
