Proof that Ghanaians don’t do what the bible says

Let’s see how many of you Ghanaians are true believers.

Remember to kill your neighbors who work on the Sabbath

Exodus 31:14-15 "You must keep the Sabbath day, for it is a holy day for you. Anyone who desecrates it must be put to death; anyone who works on that day will be cut off from the community.You have six days each week for your ordinary work, but the seventh day must be a Sabbath day of complete rest, a holy day dedicated to the Lord. Anyone who works on the Sabbath must be put to death."

Ghanaian woman, do you shut up during church meetings?

1 Corinthians 14: 34 - 35 "Women should be silent during the church meetings. It is not proper for them to speak. They should be submissive, just as the law says. If they have any questions, they should ask their husbands at home, for it is improper for women to speak in church meetings."

Ghana man, before you shave, please read your bible

Leviticus 19:27 "Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard."

Do you eat pork?

Leviticus 11:7-8 "The pig has evenly split hooves but does not chew the cud, so it is unclean. You may not eat the meat of these animals or even touch their carcasses. They are ceremonially unclean for you."

Ghanaian Women can only teach in all-girls school

1 Timothy 2:12-13 "I do not let women teach men or have authority over them. Let them listen quietly. For God made Adam first, and afterward he made Eve."

Clothing found in stores today is made from many different materials -- cotton, polyester, silk, wool. The bible says beware of what you wear

Leviticus 19:19 "Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material."

Apuskelele and Otto Phister might send you to hell

1 Timothy 2:9 "I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes."

Tribal marks or tattoos are an abomination

Leviticus 19:28 "Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD."

Thou shalt not eat shrimp, lobster and crabs

Leviticus 11:12 "Whatsoever hath no fins nor scales in the waters, that shall be an abomination unto you."

I feel sorry for Ghana woman

Leviticus 19:16 "Do not spread slanderous gossip among your people."

No room for Malams & jujumen

Leviticus 19:31 "Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God."

All of yee divorces may be going to hell

Mark 10:11-12 “Whoever divorces his wife and marries someone else commits adultery against her. And if a woman divorces her husband and marries someone else, she commits adultery.”

This one is too hard to contemplate ..I’ll rather go to Hell

Proverbs 23:2 "If you are a big eater, put a knife to your throat."

Now tell me if you're going to heaven

…and BTW, if your pastor uses the “this is from the Old testament” trick to discount these, tell him/her that his tithe is also tied to the same book
