“DESPITE BEING AN EVANGELIST, I DISLIKE GOING TO CHURCH” – Majid Michel

Award winning actor, Majid Michel, claims despite doing the work of God as an Evangelist he dislikes the concept of going to church on a daily basis.

He claims that he despises the fact that he has to struggle to get dressed for church every morning.

Majid Michel, who has undertaken the difficult process of becoming an Evangelist, told Fiifi Folson on Joy FM that he never sees himself as a churchgoer because he has never understood why he needed to be in church and has never enjoyed it.

“I’ve never enjoyed going to church.” I don’t go to church because I despise getting out of bed in the morning. My siblings have teased me about it since I was a child. [While] in church, I said to my mother, ‘Mum, I want to eat bread and eggs.’ It’s too early for me, and I’ve never enjoyed church in my life, and I still don’t.”

Majid Michel also stated that he never grasped the church’s beliefs, which gave him every reason to avoid going to church as often as he should.

“My problem was that I never understood what they were teaching, and this was the source of my hunger as I grew older.” I knew who God was, but I couldn’t understand the sermons and teachings I was hearing.

Maverick politician and member of parliament for Ningo Prampram Constituency, Sam George has kicked against the decision by the police to sanction religious leaders over their prophecies on December 31 during the Watch Night services.

In a recent post he made on social media, Sam George wondered why the Inspector General of Police (IGP) will ban the declaration of prophesies about the new year.

He quizzed the IGP to show where the law stipulates that men of God and clergymen who defy the directive will be punished.

In his words, “So what exactly will the IGP be charging Pastors and Prophets with if they prophesy tonight? Which part of our Criminal Codes bars prophecy? I would like to be educated”

The IGP initially released a statement cautioning prophets to be watchful in their communication of prophecy.

The statement reads, “We want to caution that under Ghanaian law, it is a crime for a person to publish or reproduce a statement, rumour or report which is likely to cause fear and alarm to the public or to disturb the public peace, where that person has no evidence to prove that the statement, rumour or report is true”.

“It is also a crime for a person, by means of electronic communications service, to knowingly send a communication that is false or misleading and likely to prejudice the efficiency of life saving service or to endanger the safety of any person,” the statement signed by Superintendent Alexander Obeng, the Director of Public Affairs of the Ghana Police Service”
