An Executive Council Member and Ho Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Apostle Dr Oliver Dela Quampah, has emphasised the need for Christians to demonstrate practical kingdom values in every facet of their lives.
According to him, the weak institutions and numerous unethical practices today are the product of deviant moral values like corruption, ingratitude, intolerance, irresponsibility and lack of self-control.
Apostle Dr Quampah made this known when he presented a paper on ‘Living by the values and the principles of the kingdom of God’ today at the ongoing Heads’ Prayer Meeting at the Pentecost Convention Centre, Gomoa Fetteh, near Kasoa.
He intimated that the syndrome of irresponsibility, notably the ‘blame game,’ is a trait humanity has inherited from their first parents, Adam and Eve.
“I believe the whole course of human history would have been different if Adam had taken responsibility for their actions and apologised to God when he sinned in the Garden of Eden. Eve also conveniently used the serpent as her scapegoat. Hence, the blame game has persisted in human history,” he argued and cited Genesis 3:3-13 to buttress his points.
Apostle Dr Quampah, who also doubles as the Coordinator of the Volta and Oti Regional Coordinating Committee, averred that courage and perseverance are needed to address and uphold the values and kingdom principles to make a difference in the bid to possess the nations.
He advised Christians to recognise the value exhibited by others and, more importantly, develop an appreciation culture and perpetuate the positive influence of humility.
