The Head Pastor of the Assemblies of God Church, Koforidua Central
Branch, Rev. Alex Ofori-Amankwah has cautioned Christian women to
desist from the habit of demanding money or any form of inducement
from their husbands before giving them sex.
According to him, such practice is "evil" and equals to prostitution
or otherwise known as ''Cash for Sex'', a habit of commercial sex
workers and must be abhorred.
Rev. Ofori-Amankwah, who is also a former Eastern Regional
Superintendent of the Assemblies of God Church, attributed the rampant
divorces suffered by several marriages in recent times to what he
described as "cash for sex". He therefore admonished Christian women
to desist from it.
Rev. Alex Ofori- Amankwah gave the warning at a Lover's Day program
dubbed ''Me dofo pa'' ''True Love'' 2015 in Koforidua last Sunday.
''Demanding for cash or any form of inducement from your husband as
his wife before giving in to sex is barbaric or evil and equals to
prostitution. Why must you collect money from your man before engaging
in sex with him when he is married to you? Are you selling your body
to him like prostitutes do in trade for sex or what?" he wondered.
''Such an attitude must not be tolerated at all, not in Christian
homes because it's a recipe for disaster and leads to divorce'', he
He equally advised the youth not to indulge in such practice as it has
the tendency to ruin their lives thereby destroying their future.
Marriage is a union between a man and a woman ordained by God with the
aim of achieving procreation and living together in peace and harmony
with each other for the rest of their lives, from the Christian point
Unfortunately several factors have become a barrier to good marriage
these days, he observed.
One of the such factors militating against the will of God when it
comes to the concept of marriage, causing havoc to marriages even in
Christian homes, he reiterated, is the habit of some wives demanding
for money or any form of inducement from their husbands before sex. He
insisted that the practice should be eschewed by all Christians.
The Me Dofo Pa" "True Love" 2015 program was initiated by Good life
FM 105.5, a Koforidua based local radio station to sensitize the youth
on how to deal with relationship issues.
The News Editor of Goodlife fm Ms. Obatiemaa Nana Yaa Asare, in an
interview with journalists said her outfit believes the best way to
deal with the rampant divorce cases in the Eastern Region was to come
out with this sensitization.
In an unrelated development, Nana Adjei Perbi, a budding gospel music
celebrity and a Minister of the Gospel dedicated his time during the
Valentine singing and praising God amidst drama on various stages
despite his busy schedules working as a staff of MTN Ghana.
He performed vivaciously on three separate platforms for the glory of
God entertaining the youths and uplifting their spirits with love
throughout the season of love.
