Chiefs At Proposed Ahafo Region Says Creation Of The Region Will Bring Development

Written by | December 28, 2018 | 0
Desire by the indigenes of Ahafo to get a separate Ahafo Region from the current Brong-Ahafo Region did not imply a feud between the Ahafos and the Brongs but basically for the purpose of development. Nana Agyei Twum II, the Chief of Wamahinso and President of the Ahafo North Divisional Council, emphasised in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Wednesday at Wamahinso in the Asutifi North District of Brong-Ahafo. He explained that fundamentally and essentially ‘the petition for the Ahafo Region is to ensure the rapid and holistic progress of the area and that can only be achieved if we get our fair share of the national cake’. Nana Twum stressed that ‘Ahafo is set for the region’ and affirmed that besides attending to any form of nature’s, the major

Written by | December 11, 2018 | 0
Social Media slay queen and socialite Moesha Boduong has flaunted her curviness, ride, wardrobe and luxurious travels in the past. Now the hottie social media slayer has flaunted yet another of her valuables, and this time, it’s a landed property. In the latest post of Moesha, she poses in front of an uncomplete building spreading her arms in the air right before the facility. The caption that came with the photo read, “Grateful…God is good… Adjiringano landlady.” Moesha has been lambasted over the years for being popular for doing absolutely nothing except flaunting her curves on social media. She also came under serious attack for stating in her interview with American news giant, CNN, that Ghana’s economy is so bad women like herself have had to date married men to take care

Senior Pastor of the Calvary Charismatic Center, Atasomanso branch Pastor Sammy Aduama has challenged Ghanaians to add serious prayers to hard work in order to sail through the difficult times they find themselves in. According to Pastor Aduama, it is in difficult times that prayer of faith is needed for God to intervene and compliment the efforts of believers with miraculous breakthroughs. Speaking to this reporter to herald the church’s upcoming five day Revival, the CCC pastor noted that ‘this is the time we need to reignite our faith and hope against hopes as we put our hands to work, only then, will God intervene in our difficult situations’. The Revival begins from December 10 to 17th, 2018 under the theme ‘Daring Faith for Greater Works’. This is the first time in 2018, that

‘Evangelism Is A Form Of Colonialism’: A Response To Efe Plange

Written by | December 6, 2018 | 0
File Photo A few days ago, I read Efe Plange’s article, ‘Evangelism is a form of colonialism,’ published by City Newsroom, with some concerns. The article discusses John Allen Chau, a twenty-six years old native of Vancouver, Washington and Christian missionary, who was killed by the people of the Sentinel Island in India’s Bay of Bengal. The members of the island have been isolated for centuries. They are aggressive and hostile to outsiders who attempt to interact with them. Also, under Indian law, the island is off-limits to visitors. Following his Christian mandate to preach the Gospel truth to all, John decided to go to the islanders to share God’s word with them. John knew that he was putting his life on the line when he decided to go to the island. In a note

Humans Didn’t Outsmart Neanderthals, We Just Outlasted Them

Written by | December 6, 2018 | 0
Neanderthal extinction may well have been a function of population dynamics, not inferiority. IAIN MASTERTON/GETTY IMAGES/CANOPY We modern humans feel pretty smug about Neanderthals. It’s the story winners often tell themselves about losers: They couldn’t cut the mustard, they weren’t smart or tough or adaptable enough. To us survivors, there is a moral to the Neanderthals’ story: We’re still here because we played the game better, worked harder, made fewer mistakes. The Neanderthals were obviously not very smart since they went extinct. But why do we think that? In science, there’s this concept called parsimony — the idea that the simplest explanation that fits the evidence is the one that’s probably correct. And evidence that Neanderthals

Funerals Have Changed Since the 1960s. Here’s How

The body of Aretha Franklin lies in repose at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History on Aug. 28, 2018, in Detroit, Michigan. Family, friends and fans were able to pay their respects to Franklin during a week of events celebrating the singer’s life. The funeral itself was a day-long, live-streamed affair. PAUL SANCYA-POOL/GETTY IMAGES You know the image of a standard American, usually Christian, funeral: It takes place at a funeral home with attendees dressed in all black. An open casket with an embalmed body rests in front of the crowd. After the service, a hearse takes the casket to a cemetery for burial. This was a conventional funeral in the 1960s, but this send-off of the dead has undergone adjustments over the decades. Perhaps the most significant

We are looking at a messianic process that has been going on for quite awhile. And what you’re seeing now unfolding is a process that will bring the Moshiach(Messiah). That’s really what’s happening. “What you’re looking at, in many ways, is an acceleration of the end, just like it happened in Egypt. What God seems

A Song. A Psalm of Asaph. O God, do not keep silence; do not hold your peace or be still, O God! For behold, your enemies make an uproar; those who hate you have raised their heads. They lay crafty plans against your people; they consult together against your treasured ones. They say, “Come, let us wipe them out as a nation; let the name of Israel be remembered no more!” Psalms 83:1-17 (The Israel Bible™) Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison.

Video: Angry Obinim Fires Prophet Nigel Over ‘Heaven Trip’

Written by | December 1, 2018 | 0
The founder and leader of International God’s Way Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim has launched an attack on Prophet Nigel Gaisie over his recent revelation that he saw Obinim in heaven in a vision. According to Obinim, Nigel’s revelation was childish and does not make sense to him. “I am not happy about it at all because it’s not making sense. This is childish. If I see you in heaven, I will ask the reason why you are here. Are you mad,” he charged. Prophet Nigel, while recently preaching the sermon in his church, revealed that God’s spirit came upon him and he found himself in heaven where he met many people who are doing God’s work including Obinim. In a video of the sermon sighted by YEN.com.gh, Nigel was heard admonishing his congregants not to judge because many
