Jesus Died For People in His Time, Not For Me – Kyiri Abosom





The leader of the Ghana Union Movement, Christian Kwabena Andrews, popularly known as Osofo Kyiri Abosom, has explained the reason behind the large congregation he leads.


The politician, who also shepherds the Life Assembly Worship Centre in Darkuman, Accra, spoke in an interview with Kwame Dwomoh-Agyemang on the Class Morning Show on Monday, April 29, 2024, and revealed that he does not follow the Bible.

He said, “I don’t follow the Bible. I believe that the Bible is history. The Bible doesn’t have power that we should depend on.

“It is the result of what God did. It is not the word of God. How would you know that the person who wrote those things was inspired by God? But since God is alive, He should speak to me.

“God did something through somebody, and that is written. Right now, God is alive, so why can’t he speak to us? God is alive, so let’s listen to him directly rather than reading about something that somebody wrote.”

The Life Assembly Worship Centre leader stressed why he has a large congregation, noting, “The things that I am doing are different from what other pastors are doing; that is why people listen to me.

If I were doing the same things they are doing, I would be at the same level as they are.”

He indicated that he only reads the Bible to “compare and give examples to people,” as he is of the opinion that the things written in the Bible were meant for those who lived during the biblical era.


According to him, contrary to fundamental Christian belief, Jesus died for those who lived during his era only and not for the current one.

“As we keep saying, ‘Jesus died for us,’ when Jesus died, I was not alive; He died for people of his era, but not for me,” Kyiri Abosom said.

“What I know is that Jesus, too, was a servant that I’ve heard of. I was not a witness to all those things, so what I am basing my belief on is that you and I are alive. I respect what you tell me more than what is in the Bible,” he added.
