In relation to the divisive National Cathedral agenda, Lydia Forson has boldly urged President Nana Akufo Addo to refrain from hiding behind the mask of “holiness” out of hypocrisy.
The renowned actress and director claimed that the president is using God to politicize the Cathedral for his own benefit. She is known for challenging opinion leaders in the nation without utilizing partisan politics.
“Wisdom is a part of worshiping God. Let’s avoid behaving like God. All of us contain God. God is in every place. She told lifestyle and gossip blogger ZionFelix, “What you’ve been using God for is not proper because we use God to politicize the issue and take advantage of people.
Lydia Forson suggested the basis of Christianity is compromised if the government goes ahead with its plan to fulfil the promise the president made to God.
“I know Christianity is not about proving to God that this is his house. What is the house of God if there are no people in it? I mean, we have churches all around us. But look at our attitudes in this country. If it was up to the church, Ghana would have been sorted.
“It’s not about the house. It’s about the people. It’s about humanity. It’s about how we are treating each other. Let us stop using God to advance our own personal interests. We are playing on the sentiments of people’s religiosity. It’s not right. That’s not Christianity, and that’s not God.”
