them, as prescribed by St Luke, to love God with all their hearts, souls,
strengths and minds; and love their neighbours as they would to
themselves", that is the word of President Akufo-Addo at the dedication of
the Tema Children’s Church of the Apostolic Church-Ghana, Community 5 District,
in Tema, Accra.
He said "The Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter 18, verse 6, tells us, again, that ‘if anyone causes one of these little ones to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck, and to be drowned in the depths of the sea’”.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo reminded Christians of the responsibility of imbibing into the children, the virtues of Christ and instils in them the beliefs of their Churches.
He told members of the congregation that “you should be fulfilled in the knowledge that you are obeying the teachings of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. For, if you welcome any child into these premises, you have welcomed Christ, Himself, here.”
The President appealed to the congregation to pray for him, his Government and his appointees to exercise their responsibilities with humility and integrity, and pray for Ghana, that she remains united and continues to strive for progress, prosperity and the embrace of God.
