Is it faith or stupidity?
Would you donate your entire life savings to a church all in the name of seed sowing? Sowing of seed has really eaten deep into the minds of the religious extremist in Ghana. Most self-acclaimed ‘men of God’ have capitalized on some Bible verses to deceive their ignorant followers.
This is the sad story of a 46-year-old man whose wife withdrew their Ghc124,000 life savings and donated it to a church all in the name of seed sowing. The deranged man took to Facebook to lament over the bizarre incident. Below is what he posted;
He said: “My name is Jerry, a 46-year-old man. I have been married to Nma for 12 years and we have three lovely children together but at the moment, I am very angry with her over what she did. You can’t imagine that my wife used our life savings, a total of N10 million to sow a seed in church without informing me.
We have slaved for many years, denied our family some basic things just so that we could put this money together so we could get a piece of land to build our house and in a moment of spiritual madness, Nma used the whole money to sow seed.
I only got to realise this after I had finished negotiations with a real estate agent and at the point, I was supposed to pay for the land, I realised that the money had been withdrawn from our joint account by my wife. I was so shocked and embarrassed at the bank when the manager informed me that my wife had withdrawn the money over two months ago.
When I got home and confronted her, Nma opened up and said she gave the money to our church for a building project. She even had the guts to tell me that she saw nothing wrong in giving our money to God as the blessings would come out of it would be more than the money.
I have been so mad at her and I have told her never to set foot in the house unless she has the money intact. I have even contemplated going to the church to demand a refund of the money but some friends have been telling me it is not the right thing to do. What do I do”?
