Government’s intention to tax churches is in the right direction since the proceeds can be used to build more development project and consequently reduce unemployment rate in the country.
A member of the Dangme congregation of the Jehovah witness, Samuel Quarshie, made this assertion at their regional convention held at Nyamekrom, a suburb of Koforidua in the Eastern Region.
He stressed that if the tax is not in conflict with the laid down principles of the Bible, then Christians should abide by it.
He said the convention is an annual programme organized by the governing body of the congregation to help strengthen spiritually to execute God’s work.
Mr. Quarshie advised all the Jehovah Witness faithful and other Christians to be obedient to God and walk in His way as the end of the world is drawing near.
One of the member of the congregation, Daniel Mensah Betule in his teaching on Armageddon, said the end of the world will occur suddenly.
He therefore urged all to be vigilant and stand firm in Christ to escape the second death.
About one thousand 318 congregants from the various congregations including Suhum, Anyinam, Somanya, Subriso, Nkurakan and Koforidua attended the convention.
