We’re Still Against Jean Mensa Despite Swearing-In – NDC

Should A Christian Get Body Massages?

Dear reader, hello! The question today is: On the scale of Immoral to Appropriate, what does the bible have to say about getting a body massage? Massages often lead to sensual arousal, particularly for men. So, is it a good idea for Christians to work in this field or take part in its services? Should Christians give or receive a massage? Is massage therapy, for that matter; holistic healing, an idolatrous, new age technique? We must acknowledge right away that sexual sins are particularly a sin against one’s own body, as such we must look at the immediate implications of our actions when they involve any form of sexual immorality. There isn’t much discussed […]

Diligent Leaders Sow Seeds!

God’s creation is loaded with seeds. God created living things to have seeds within them. These seeds are the oldest source of wealth in the world. Anyone who needs corn just has to plant some seeds and he will have the harvest of corn with its resultant wealth. In the same way, a leader who wishes to have more leaders like him has to deliberately plant seeds to produce many more of his kind. Seed planting is therefore the basis of God’s continued provision for us. Why Sowing Seeds Makes a Good Leader Sowing seeds makes a good leader because seeds are God’s avenue to provide abundance in the earth. […]

Free SHS to run double-track system amid concerns by NAGRAT

Government is finalising steps to start the double-track or semester system to boost enrollment under its flagship free Senior High School (SHS) education programme. Education Minister, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh, made the revelation at a sensitisation programme organised for education directors, heads of senior high school and public relation officers in the education sector on Saturday, July 21. What is the double track system? In a single-track system, students and staff are in school or vacation at the same time within an academic year.

Löw makes it clear: “It needs profound changes” – coach decision next week

After the historic preliminary round-out at the World Cup in Russia, the mood in the DFB team is at a low. Jerome Boateng even apologized in an open letter to the fans. Both the future of national coach Joachim Loew and some of the well-established national team is in the stars.

One day after the embarrassing preliminary round-out at the World Cup in Russia, the German national team left the World Cup quarter Watutinki and landed in Frankfurt with just over an hour late.

NDC Minority Has No Credibility

They have either been working strenuously to sabotage the business of the Ghanaian people, or simply boycotting Parliamentary Proceedings and getting extravagantly paid for such regressive use of their Parliamentary Privilege. So it is just not clear to me what Mr. James Klutse Avedzi means when he ironically accuses the New Patriotic Party’s Parliamentary Majority as follows: “They think Ghana belongs to them and they can work without us so [they can go ahead]” (See “ ‘Go Ahead and Work Without Us’ – Minority Adopts ‘Sit-and-Watch’ Attitude” MyJoyOnline.com / Ghanaweb.com 2/7/18). Actually, it is the Rawlings-founded National Democratic Congress (NDC) whose key operatives behave as if they are the sole holders of […]
