Founder of the Action Chapel International, Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, says he cannot understand why Christians are actively kicking against the construction of a National Cathedral.
According to him, Muslims already have a National Mosque so it should therefore be no problem for Christians to equally have theirs.
“The Muslims have built a National Mosque and nobody has complained about it. But a national cathedral, where there will be the first of its kind, bible museums with the different characters in the bible being showcased where children, families, people will travel from far and near, to pay and come and look, and it shall stand for God and country, as a memorial, we’ll oppose it: ‘Who is funding it? Who is giving to it? Who is financing it? Where is the money coming from?'' the preacher said during a sermon on Sunday, November 11, 2018.
“As if somebody has asked you for your money. And we’ll oppose it, even when we don’t understand it. We won’t ask the questions, we criticise things, we fight everything.”
A year ago, government revealed plans to construct a National Cathedral to serve as a national non-denominational Christian worship center.
Earlier in March, President Akufo-Addo went on to unveil the design and architecture for the National Cathedral at a brief ceremony at the Accra International Conference Centre.
However, the decision has been widely criticised by a section of Ghanaians who believe it’s a misplaced priority.
There were also concerns raised after it emerged that some 14 judges have to be evacuated from their homes to make way for the construction of the cathedral.
But Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams said he cannot understand why Christians would oppose such a good plan.
In his view, many people are against the construction of the National Cathedral due to political reasons and not because it is not a good proposition.
“And you know the people fighting it? Not other religions, but it’s us, Christians. It’s us, Christians fighting it. And some of you are fighting it because it’s not your party and your president that is building it, so, you must oppose it. And some of you love your political parties and more loyal to your political parties than you are to the bible and the cause of Christ. That is where we are,” he added.
