A popular musician in Ghana, Belinda Ekua Amoah has come under attack for publicly declaring Jesus a fictitious figure while asserting her faith in God and her ability to speak in tongues.
Speaking on a local television show, “Restoration With Stacy,”, the songstress was asked if she believed in Jesus Chris.
Reports have it that her response, which caught the public off guard, has been trail with reactions with many lambasting her.
“Trust me, I don’t believe in that anymore. … I don’t want to offend anybody. I used to believe in ‘it’ but eerrmm, I did my own research and I think ‘it’ was made up but I might be wrong; but by my own research, it was made up. Because the same story 5,000 years ago happened in Egypt. … Horus’ mother was a virgin. … He did miracles, he had disciples at the age of 12,” she claimed.
“I used to believe in ‘it.’ I prayed in tongues. I can pray in tongues right now. I actually prayed in my room one time until the room was filled up in smoke … but now, trust me, I will not believe in it anymore,” she added.
Ghanians, 71 percent of whom are Christians according to the Central Intelligence Agency, were not happy with her response, which has sparked an ongoing debate on social media.
A person by the name of “ministerike” wrote on her instagram, “You denounce jesus is not good .no one goes to the father except through jesus.”
While “eboowusi” wrote, “She is just attention seeker to promote her dead music.”
One person named “nannaglow” posted on the singer’s instagram, “I understand your honesty but you did not seem too certain about what you were saying… Sometimes, it’s not that people do not believe in Christ but they just want an excuse not to… Christianity makes you face the truth and the truth offends.”
And “kojo_boakye116” said, “lmaooo…she can never please me…all I’m saying is she shouldn’t talk against my Father….JESUS…that’s all I need lol….@nannaglow right on point.”
