The founder and presiding Bishop of the United Denomination Originating from the Lighthouse Group Of Churches has condemned the act of sports betting that is rampant among the youth today.
In a snippet of a sermon that was sighted by YEN.com.gh on the YouTube channel of Kweku Zurek, the bishop indicated that the purpose of man on earth is to make the work of God progress.
He recounted, as part of creating a practical scenario for the message, how he used to be engaged in an act of betting back in the day.
Watch the video below:
"I used to go to horse races. We don't have it anymore, but it was there back then. And my father had horses. You see them coming; sometimes 15 of them and you bet on which one will win."
At this point, the renowned bishop of the formerly known Lighthouse Chapel International paused to caution the youth in his congregation about betting.
According to him, betting makes people end up in poverty and it is only a person who wants to be poor that should continue engaging in it.
