The Bible Society of Ghana (BSG) has celebrated its National Bible Week with a call on Christians to make good use of the Bible and live by its teachings.
The programme which brought together some individuals and religious organisations at the premises of the Hansen Road Seventh Day Baptist Church was themed “The Bible and National cohesion”.
Addressing the event, the General Secretary of BSG, Erasmus Nii Boni Odorkor, said the initiative was to honor the Bible by reading and studying it to highlight the importance of God’s Word.
He said although the event had received the support of some religious organisations, the BSG still needed funds to achieve its objectives and programmes.
“This is the period we must devote time and resources to make the Word known to the public” Mr Odorkor said.
He noted that, the events was aimed at uniting Christians since it’s created a platform for them to learn together, and share their thoughts on the contents of the bible.
Reverend Dr Joyce Rosalind Aryee, the Executive Director of the Salt and Light Ministry, called on Christians to make good use of the Bible noting that “We must read the Bible and make it our friend.
She noted that, although the bible has been made available to the public, many Christians still do not read it hence the many criminal and social problems afflicting the country.
Those who must read and impact the principle have failed to learn it thereby leading to the various robberies in our communities,” she observed.
She therefore urged Christians read the bible to help transform their lives and also called on them to support activities of the BSG.
