Metropolitan Catholic Archbishop of Accra, Palmer Buckle has urged Christians not to be swayed by the general economic challenges to employ evil means in order to make a living and must also not compromise their faith for food and the comfort of life.
He was speaking at the Accra Ridge Church at the launch of the 80th anniversary of the church.
The Archbishop bemoaned the increasing rate of sakawa among young people due to the economic hardship in the country.
Speaking on the theme, ‘Fix Your Eyes on Jesus Christ’, the Metropolitan Archbishop urged the christian youth to remain faithful, devoted and dedicated to their principles as Christians and resist the temptation of making money the easiest way which he explained have negative consequences.
Young people he noted must work hard, dedicate themselves to activities of the church and pray without ceasing since that remains the only way they can flee from the negative influences of this ‘evil world’.
Christians he added, must strive towards righteousness and hold on to their duty as the bible explains.
