THE RETIRED Chief Fire Officer, Dr Albert Brown Gaisie, has called for the need for Christians to embark on extensive research biblical studies in order not to be deceived by imposters.
The former Chief Firefighter said it would be inappropriate for Christians to allow only their pastors to interpret the doctrine of the religion in order to avoid being swindled by fake prophets.
Speaking to the press after being awarded with a PhD in Religious Studies at the My Life Theological University in Accra, Dr Gaisie urged Ghanaians to be steadfast and sacrifice for humanity.
He added that it was about time Christians strengthened their faith in the religion, arguing that, “We cannot do anything in this without the help of God.”
“We should learn about the Christian religion to guide us in our lives. There are a lot of things in the religion that we have to learn to help improve our lives, but we have failed to identify those things,” he said.
He further urged schools to train their students to uphold the values of their religions rather than focusing only on the academic aspect.
This, he said, was the surest way of preventing some of the social vices in the country, saying, “There’s no age limit in studying our religions.”
Dr Gaisie was awarded the degree after two-and-a-half years of intensive studies at the university.
He said the award had made him more fortified, steadfast and encouraged his Christian life to sacrifice for humanity.
“To complete this programme, I had to complete a 200 page document for my dissertation, which has enlightened my knowledge on the Christian Religion. The award has improved my Christian life and impact on the lives of people,” he said.
Dr Brown Gaisie already has a PhD in fire safety.
