I am not a Christian- Okyeame Kwame states emphatically

Okyeame Kwame has stated he does not identify as a Christian. The evergreen rapper, who has been in the music industry for over two decades, recently revealed in an interview with Joy Entertainment’s Kwame Dadzie that he doesn’t subscribe to one religion.

He said he mentioned that he is currently an omnist who derives his faith and inspiration from every religion.

 “I was born as a Christian in the Methodist Church and then I grew up in the Christian faith until I was maybe 14 years.

“Most of my values are Christian. My father was a Catholic. My mother went to the Methodist Church so I grew up doing catechism and all that. I went to an Anglican school so most of my socialisation has been very Christian. But in my adult life, I don’t think I can call myself a Christian in the full sense. I call myself on omnist,” he said.

He explained that he follows the African tradition when it comes to respecting nature and trees and rivers; he is a Buddhist when it comes to the Bible’s teaching on “loving your neighbor as yourself”; he is a Christian when it comes to that teaching; however, he also becomes a Muslim due to his extreme reverence for God and his claim to all power.

According to Wikipedia, Omnism is the respect of or belief in all religions with their gods or lack thereof.

Those who hold this belief are called omnists, sometimes written as omniest. In recent years, the term has been resurfacing due to the interest of modern-day self-described omnists who have rediscovered and begun to redefine the term. Omnism is similar to syncretism, the belief in a fusion of faiths in harmony.

However, it can also be seen as a way to accept the existence of various religions without believing in all that they profess to teach. Many omnists say that all religions contain truths, but that no one religion offers all that is truth. Sri Ramakrishna, the Hindu saint, believed in all religions being true.He continued by saying he didn’t want to restrict himself to one religion in order to miss out on the benefits of the other faiths.
