The Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that salvation depends on the pureness of one’s heart and not his/her pastor.
According to him, its impossible for one’s pastor to save his/her soul on the judgement day.
“Nobody will save your soul for you. Salvation is based on the pureness of your own heart. Not the pureness of your pastor’s heart,” he said.
Delivering a sermon at the Ringway Gospel Centre Assemblies of God church on Sunday, September 17, Mr Mahama entreated the youth to pray over their heart desires.
He further encouraged the youth to engage in social activities to help them meet their life partners.
Mr Mahama indicated that opportunity comes only once urging Ghanaians to be smart in their endeavours.
“You pray to God to give you a partner, as you pray, you must engage in social activities. Who knows where you will meet him or her, you go to funerals; people have met in funerals and marry, people have met at weddings and marry and so as you pray, you must go out and God will let your paths cross.
‘Prayer is important but effort is also important. For some people that opportunity is only once in a lifetime, if you miss it, you will stand at the harbor for many decades and no boat will come again,” he stated.
