Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has advised Ghanaians to stop “cursing” the country’s economy through gloomy commentary about the state of affairs.
“…The economy is bad, things are tough, things are difficult, yes I know, but you have to be careful of your confession because anytime you speak, you are speaking life or you are speaking death,” he cautioned in Church on Sunday.
According to him, “you curse the economy by confessing what is going on”.
Adducing biblical support he reminded his congregation that at the beginning of creation: “…God said there is darkness [so] what do I want? Light. So God didn’t say darkness; He said: ‘let there be light’”.
He therefore urged people to: “Speak solutions, speak alternatives, speak answers”, instead of accepting “the situation” and saying: “That’s the way it should be.”
“That is what it is, but it can change. And who brings about or initiates a change? You are the one that initiates a change, and you complicate issues when you begin confessing the negative over the situation,” the charismatic cleric told his Church.
