On-air personality, Daddy Freeze, has reacted to Pastor Victor Eghan’s comments, asking Christians to stop watching ‘Game of Thrones’, a popular TV series.
Eghan, who is Ghanaian, had warned Christians who watch ‘Games of Thrones’, that they are at “risk of going to hell”.
Writing on his Facebook page, the cleric claimed that some of the things on display in the series are immoral and against the doctrines of the Bible.
“If you’re so attached to Game of Thrones that you’re getting angry with me, then who are you worshipping? GOD or GOT? One letter makes a big difference. And that one letter change can make a big difference when you stand before GOD on that day,” Eghan wrote.
In his reaction, Freeze said it was hypocritical of the pastor to have made such a statement.
“Dear Pastor, it is absolutely un-scholarly and downright hypocritical to tell people to stop watching
Game of Thrones without telling them to also stop reading the Bible, because there is hardly any difference between the story lines of both.
“Game of Thrones had 865 deaths, the Bible had more than two million; David killed 200 men and cut their foreskins just to marry Saul’s daughter.
“Game of Thrones had 17 rape cases; the Bible also had many:David’s daughter Tamar was raped by her own brother Amnon.
“Dinah, daughter of Jacob and Leah, was also raped and her brothers committed murder in their revenge.
“While many scholars suggest that David himself raped Bathsheba, Solomon’s mother; Solomon also murdered his own brother Adonijah because of a girl called Abishag.
“Game of Thrones had 144 scenes of naked people.
“The Bible also has a major scene; David dancing almost naked in front of the whole city, while Christ himself was stripped naked publicly and beaten before being crucified.’’
“You say there are prostitutes in game of thrones. Aren’t Christ, David and Solomon all descendants of a prostitute named Rahab?
“Therefore, this submission is ignorant and does very little to showcase anything apart from your ignorance of the scriptures,” Freeze commented on Instagram.
