Leader and founder of Common Sense Family, Avraham Ben Moshe, has claimed that most Ghanaians are comfortably living in poverty all because of religion.
According to Avraham, religion has encouraged the attitude of not striving for worldly things among Christians hence prefer to suffer on earth and later enjoy in heaven.
‘The Free Thinker’ said Christians are now comfortable being impoverished because of the thought of having a better destination than earth when you die.
In an interview with Rev. Nyansa Boakwa on Happy 98.9FM’s NsemPii, Avraham Ben Moshe said, “They’ve been made to understand that it is useless working and making money to enjoy in the world because someday, it will be destroyed and they will die leaving everything they were working so hard for so, they should rather focus on making it to heaven where they will be eternally rewarded”.
“This type of thinking is also obvious in the sort of roads we construct’. We create our roadways as the world will be ending in 3 days and that we are anticipating the second coming of Christ so they may travel with him to enjoy in paradise as they’ve been told” he added.
He underlined that, this mentality is making most Christians comfortable living with poverty, adding that ‘until it is altered, we will continue being poor as a country’.
“The whites keep progressing while we keep retrogressing. Until when shall we continue to live like this? They keep becoming inventive daily while we’re stationary waiting for the return of Christ. We need to modify our mindset” he suggested.
