Christians asked not to wish the downfall of their enemies

Half Assini (W/R) March 31, GNA- Pastor Joseph Appiah of the Tarkwa-Abosso Twelve Apostolic Church has urged Christians not seek the downfall of their enemies as Jesus Christ did on the cross.

He said Jesus Christ did not call for the elimination of those who  crucified him but said: ‘Father forgive them for they do not know what they  are doing’.

Pastor Appiah was preaching at an Easter convention of the church at  Half Assini at the weekend.

He said any truthful person is not accepted in the society and that it  was in this respect that the Jews prefer Barabbas Brigand to Jesus Christ,  hence his crucifixion.

Pastor Appiah said when Jesus was being crucified, he prayed to God to  forgive his enemies of their sins.
