Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare has praised Ghana's churches for offering solace to unemployed youth with weekday church services.
Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare, founder and leader of Perez Chapel International, has expressed the feeling that Ghana would have been worse off if there were no weekday church services to give hope to the mass of unemployed graduates and the youth in the country.
According to a Classfmonline.com report, Bishop Agyin-Asare stated his views in a sermon in June 2019 at the Perez Dome, Dzorwulu.
The Christian preacher was reportedly speaking as part of discussions on parliamentary proposal to allow the state to regulate churches.
Bishop Agyinasare wondered: “How many of the serious one-man churches do you see their pastors showing cars on social media."
Agyin-Asare continued: "Those showing their cars on social media, don’t they know them?”
“Those showing the $500,000 cars and the $400,000 cars, don’t they see them? So why do you want to target the ones who are doing some work, who are planting churches?”
Bishop Agyin-Asare said weekday church services are a great source of hope for the teeming youth, some of whom are in abject despair and desperation due to the lack of jobs to absorb them.
“They say that churches that do services on weekdays those churches must be stopped. If we were not doing churches on weekdays, for the young men and women who belong to the unemployed graduates association, who have been to university and have come out and don’t have a job and they’re disappointed and hopeless, if we were not giving them hope to come to church and pray and seek the face of God, like this nation will be something else," he quipped
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that Bishop Charles Agyin-Asare admonished Christians to refrain from using office working hours to discuss matters of their faith and their Bible.
Bishop Agyin-Asare asked Christians to recognise that there is time and place for everything.
He advised them to use their break time or hours outside the working period to study the Holy Scriptures.
