Whereas most Christian churches in the world would frown on lottery as not being complaint to the edicts of the religion, Ghanaian pastor, Rev. Daniel Obinim has no problems with aiding him congregation to partake in lotto.
The self-proclaimed Angel Obinim of the International God's Way Church, reportedly stated that he would not stop giving out lotto numbers to his church members.
A report by local news website, MyNewsGH.com revealed that Obinim made the comments at his church to buttress the testimony of one of his congregants.
The woman, identified in the report as Efua Nkrumah, had revealed that she had tasted the "goodness of God" after Obinim visited her through in her dreams.
According to the report, the woman, requested ‘two sure’ lotto numbers and the Angel of God promised her to appear in her dream to give her.
She explained that the Angel of God appeared in her dream and wrote the two numbers on a paper and asked her to stake when she wakes up.
She continued that all the numbers dropped and she won a whopping amount of 780,000 Ghana cedis.
Even as the report by the woman was not easily substantiated, Angel Obinim is known for participating in activities that would be questioned by the larger Christian community.
