- Reverend Dr. Richard Whitcomb said the presence of the National Cathedral would not bring the nation closer to God
- According to him, even the USA has a cathedral but it is the most sinful and perverted country
Senior Pastor of Agape House New Testament Church, Reverend Dr. Richard Whitcomb has said the presence of a National Cathedral in Ghana, would not bring the nation closer to God.
In a sermon this past week, he said his non-partisan warning was made with only spiritual considerations.
Rev. Whitcomb said his concerns did not stem from financial or political consideration, but the “spiritual implication of misunderstanding God’s dwelling place.”
His sermon came as the National Cathedral Council of Trustees prepare for a fundraiser for the construction of the edifice on December 28.
Rev. Whitcomb said virtues like humility were more desirable for a relationship with God.
He made reference to what is considered to be the largest church building in the world, the Basilica of Our Lady of Peace in Cote d’Ivoire, “but having that great cathedral didn’t prevent a civil war.”
“After all they have a national cathedral in the USA and it is a backslidden, sin-filled perverted country - Rev Whitcomb”
