Ghanaian comedian, Abdul Waris aka Comedian Waris has expressed surprise at the phenomenon where some people attend church throughout the days of the week.
According to him, he can’t believe some people in Ghana go to church regularly as they will go to school.
In a tweet some few minutes ago, Comedian Waris opined that the church is becoming rich at the expense of their members simply because of their regular attendance.
In other words, going to church every day of the week makes one poor while the church makes a lot of money.
I can’t believe in Ghana some people go to church like school, Monday , Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday eiiii, no wonder some churches are making people poor, very poor.

The observation made by Comedian Waris has some iota of truth in it especially before the outbreak of COVID-19 where the churches were operating at full capacity and the members were trooping in every day.
In Ghana, many individuals perceive churches as a haven or a religious and sacred building where God is closer to them and ready to attend to their every need.
Based on these factors and more, it has made most churches business ventures where the leaders make money from the members through fundraising, selling of spiritual items, offertories, tithes and other means.
This phenomenon, Comedian Waris believes is making the members poor and poorer.
