The Founder and leader of APC church, Rev. Obofour has declared that he will stop calling on the God of Israel following the ongoing conflict between them and the Palestinians.
Speaking during one of his church services, Rev. Obofour said that after seeing that the Israelites fight their enemies with bombs instead of Bible quotations, he is tempted to get a security gun to protect himself.
” I will stop calling on the God of Israel and start calling on the God of Ghana. If he fails to answer me, I will call on my own God. The Israelites who were rescued in the Bible we always use to preach to the congregation on daily basis are the Israelites who are fighting their enemies with bombs. They are killing off innocent people including women and children. Why would I pray to that God again? I will get myself a gun so that when I am attacked I can defend myself.” Rev. Obofour stated.
The Israeli – Palestinian War
An armed conflict between Hamas-led Palestinian militant groups and Israeli military forces broke out on 7 October 2023, with a Hamas attack on southern Israel, to which Israeli military forces retaliated with extensive strikes against Palestine’s Gaza Strip and a subsequent invasion of Gaza. Israel says one of its soldiers has been “released” in a military operation in the Gaza Strip.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has rejected calls for a ceasefire with Hamas. An Israeli air attack has severely damaged the Turkish-Palestinian Friendship Hospital, drawing strong condemnation from Ankara.
The Palestine Red Crescent says its warehouses have been damaged in an Israeli strike. UNRWA chief Philippe Lazzarini has told the UN Security Council that Israel’s “relentless bombardment” of Gaza has led to an “unprecedented” level of destruction.
