“MY FINAL POSITION ON THE NATIONAL CATHEDRAL – FOR POSTERITY’S SAKE!!!!! – By Dr Moses Barima Djimatey – As a believer in the Lord Jesus, this matter has only succeeded in making me highly suspicious of many that we call leaders of the Christian community in this country!!!
I have insisted that, THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS BUILT IN THE HEARTS OF MEN NOT WITH BRICK AND MORTAR and only obfuscation of scripture can convince anybody about this project.
CATHEDRALS DON’T GLORIFY GOD, IT IS TRANSFORMED LIVES THAT DO! And if our Christian leaders cannot see the wickedness and deprivation that is drowning this nation, it is because they are privileged!
IF BUILDINGS WERE THE PROOF OF FAITH, Turkey and many other European countries which have turned their backs on the Christian faith will not be what they are today.
LA COTE D’IVOIRE built that huge BASILICA and what happened next – bloody civil war never heard of in that country’s history, a clear indication that CHRISTIANITY MUST BE FOCUSED ON CHANGING HEARTS RATHER THAN BUILDING EDIFICES!!!
A country whose leaders only plunge the nation into ever increasing hardship and deprivation should be clothing itself with sackcloths and ashes, seeking the Lord for forgiveness and not building a supposed house of worship for the God of all justice.
THIS PROJECT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A WHITE WASHED SEPULCHRE FULL OF DEAD MEN’S BONES!
May GOD continue to bless our homeland Ghana … And make our nation and continent truly great and strong – FOR HIS GLORY – AND HIS GLORY ALONE.
