Ghanaian gospel preacher, Reverend Ebenezer Adarkwa Yiadom, widely known as Opambour has reacted to the demise of former Black Stars winger, Christian Atsu.
Speaking to his congregants in one of his sermons, Opambour admitted that he doesn’t know much about the late footballer until his sudden death and was shocked by the tons of testimonies people were sharing after his demise.
According to him, all the testimonies were good but questioned why people have to wait until he died before coming out to talk about his good deeds.
He holds that the good works of the 31-year-old footballer should have been told when he was alive so that he gets to feel how people were appreciative of his kindness.
He paid tributes to Christian Atsu and prayed to the Heavens for divine forgiveness and mercy on Christian Atsu.
He dismissed criticism about Atsu’s tattoos, explaining that God’s judgment of mankind is not based on appearance.
“May God’s will prevail. People will judge him because of the tattoo but God knows his heart. Humans look at outward appearance but God knows what is in his heart. Since he died, there’ve been a lot of testimonies about him. That is what will happen to us, should we die. It is after our death that people will come out and talk about how helpful we were to them.
“If Atsu did all these good things for you, why did you have to wait till he died to come out? May his soul rest in peace and may the good Lord keep his soul. If he did something wrong whiles alive, may the forgiveness of God find him. He should look at the good things he did,” he said.
