THE ANGLICAN Archbishop of Ghana, Most Rev Prof Daniel Yinkah Sarfo, has condemned the upsurge of immoral activities by the people during the celebration of Christmas.

He said with great worry that ?it is unacceptable for all of us to engage in sinful activities such as fornication and adultery during the Christmas period.?

Most Rev Prof Yinkah Sarfo added that others also consumed alcoholic beverages in large amounts during the yuletide to get intoxicated, stressing that such acts were also intolerable.

According to him, Jesus Christ whose birth is marked on Christmas was a holy person without any blemish; therefore, those who marked the saviour?s birthday with immoral activities should stop.

He said the Holy Bible and for that matter Christianity as a religion, frowned on all forms of immoral activities so the populace should take note and behave accordingly.

Most Rev Prof Yinkah Sarfo was preaching the sermon during the ?Kumasi Carol?s Service? which was a brainchild of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) and Golden Tulip Kumasi City.

He pointed out that sin, no matter its form, was abhorred by God, the creator, so the masses should repent from it, especially, during the Christmas celebration which is marked worldwide.

Most Rev Prof Yinkah Sarfo who is also the Anglican Bishop of Kumasi, admonished the people to forgive their fellows in all their doings.

He also emphasized the need for Ghanaians to stay together as one people with a common destiny, insisting that the country would flourish if the people stayed united at all times.

The festival of ?Nine Lessons and Carols? which was massively attended by the people of Kumasi saw top-notch people in the region, reciting Bible lessons which was interlaced with melodious gospel music.

Among those who recited Bible lessons on the day included the Ashanti Regional Minister, Eric Opoku, Hon Joseph Yammin, the Deputy Youth and Sports Minister and Kojo Bonsu, the Kumasi Mayor.

The rest were Hon Samuel Yaw Adusei, Deputy Ashanti Regional Minister, DCOP Augustine Gyening, the Ashanti Regional Police Commander and Brigadier General Joseph Boampong, GOC GAF Northern Command, among others.
