As a traditional priest, Matthew was committed to the belief system until he became a Deputy Chief Priest of the Alifia Shrine in 1978.

However, the renowned powerful man denounced his deity, gave his life to Christ in 1984, relocated and joined his elder brother at Assin Atwereboanda where they fellowshipped with the Methodist Church.

This did not come as an easy step as Matthew received many threats for leaving his gods and quitting idol worshipping but he kept at it with resilience.

I've been saying time and time again that Christianity of today is a scam. Pastors are deity priest at night and during the day they wear cassock and coat to deceive their uniformed members. Today, hardened criminals are Pastors, known convicts are Pastors and buggers are Pastors.
