Focus on creating employment for your members and not building prisons – Church of Pentecost told

The Church of Pentecost revealed recently that they plan to build a new ultramodern prison block for the Nsawam Prisons.

The facility when completed is expected to accommodate 300 prison inmates and will have a training workshop, an administration block, a church building, and a recreational facility.

However, some people have not been too enthused about this gesture. This has really generated debates about the seeming dwindling role of the church in society.

Veteran comedian Kweku Sintim-Misa (KSM)  says it is ironic  how the government which is supposed to build prisons is rather building a cathedral whiles the church, on the other hand, is trying to put up a prison block.

Producer and award-winning Gospel Artiste, Nana Osei aka Nacee has added his voice to the on-going debate, whether it’s prudent for a church to build a prison facility.

“In my candid opinion, it’s wrong for a church to build a prison in Ghana. Instead, I will rather suggest that the church should build factories and create jobs for its members and other people to get gainful source of employment.

“In addition to the jobs, the church should teach, interlace it with good and practical Christian doctrines to help their members stay away from social vices which may lead them into prison.

“I can tell you that some of the people who end up in prison might be due to joblessness but some of our churches rather invest the monies they get from the contribution of members in ventures that do not inure to the members benefit”.

“It is said that the devil finds work for the idle hands,” he said.
