Bishop Charles Agyinasare, the founder and leader of Perez Chapel has bewailed the jealous nature of the Ghanaian populist towards well to do people.
The Man of God begun that as people we tend to drag people who are successful down most often.
The renowned preacher went on to say that this behavior is the very reason why not even a single person from Ghana currently owns a private jet.
“We cannot stand the success of our own people”, said Bishop Agyinasare in his virtual sermon on Sunday, 19 July 2020, on the theme: ‘Getting rid of envy’ adding: “We make it hard in this country for people to enjoy their blessings from God”.
He indicated that Ghana keeps repeating the vicious cycle of the past, noting: “Because of our spirit of envy, people rather keep their wealth overseas and die and leave it there”.
“We think that to succeed, we need to pull down the one ahead of us. In Ghana, we don’t have a problem if expatriate comes to buy a property in Villagio or Trassacco or the Cantonments but when a Ghanaian does, we have a problem”.
“No wonder we hardly have people owning jets in this country; we would talk and bring them down and the government would find a way to criminalise them and close them down”, he noted
“It is like crabs in a tray – they keep pulling one another down and none is able to climb out of the tray”, he said.
However, warned that: ‘If you cannot allow another person to flourish, you cannot have your own’.
