Ghanaian Pastor/Spiritualist, Apostle Adjei Boafuor has asserted that a lot of Blacks disregard the power of authority.
According to him, blacks only regard powers in authority only in their time of need and want. But once they have their requests granted, they disregard the authorities.
In an interview with Rev Nyansa Boakwa on HappyFM’s NsemPii Show, he said, “The same way you regarded them when you needed their help in your time of want, you should respect and appreciate them after they give you what you asked for.”
Citing an example he said, “A woman in search for a child out of frustration can randomly go and stand in front of any river cry and pray and ask for a child when no one asked her to. Rivers being a source of power and authority can also grant her request, only for her to forget to appreciate the river.”
He added, “Before approaching the river she took of her slippers as a sign of respect before doing everything she did. But after she got what she wanted, she forgot to go thank who helped her.”
The apostle expressed that this is a reason some people get answers to their requests and later suffer some consequences.
“They did not appreciate the source of their granted request and this is an one challenge blacks are still struggling to come out from.
Some go as far as going to church to thank God. Why didn’t you go to church when you were searching for a child?” he asked.
He advised blacks to respect and appreciate people or beings who do them favors. “If not it will go against them at some point in their lives.”
