For the purpose of this article, the concentration is thrown at the ‘extreme’ addiction to religion and not normal worship.
Research over the years has shown that Christianity leads amongst the three main religions in Ghana.
How then can religion be an addiction of the contemporary Ghanaian Christian?
To commence, the rate at which pastors are seen by some church members as perfect beings who cannot mistake is a worry. With this idea, some evil Ghanaians hide within churches with the Holy Bible to commit various crimes.
Also, where the advice of pastors are sometimes chosen over that of certified medical doctors, is also another serious matter. Instead of visiting hospitals with diseases some members rather visit pastors for miraculous healings whilst these pastors have National Health Insurance Scheme cards and visit hospitals when sick.
Some even claim to have made a vertically challenged person (short person) tall physically after he appeared to him spiritually. Check the link to this video below;

In these things, no one dares to question the pastors’ decision in church since they are seen as God almighty on earth.
