Miracle Performing Pastor Caught on Adom TV Using True Caller to Detect Callers’ Names
As German philosopher and economist, Karl Marx, said “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people.”
For many, they turn to religion hoping for a better future in the next life – and because of how vulnerable such people are, most religious leaders take advantage of them.
Here in Ghana, countless pastors dupe their congregants who fall prey to their clever tactics. A pastor has this morning been caught on Adom TV for using True Caller to detect callers’ names before prophesying to them.
True Caller is a mobile application that crowd-sources data from the millions of users who have downloaded the True Caller app on their smartphones. As part of the end user agreement, the True Caller app asks the user to allow access to the user’s address book/contacts on the smartphone. This data is then uploaded by the app to the company’s servers. After going through several data matching/refining algorithms, this data is made available to all True Caller users to search upon. This makes it very easy to identify a person who calls you.
Pastor Tweneboah, as ScrewLife.Com is told, is a self-acclaimed ‘man of God’ and a prophet – an expert in dishing out the names of unknown callers who call his line for prayers. For him, he only specializes in telling callers who they are by mentioning their names to them; perhaps the only gift God gave him as a prophet. By doing so, he has been able to make $3,000,000 from using this rare God-given talent.
Earlier today, it was discovered that True Caller has been the right-hand man of the so-called prophet who has been deceiving people into thinking he has a special calling from God.
“There was something fishy about the actions of the pastor. Nobody touches his phone when it rings. If you dare try, you’ll be in hot waters,” a member of his church said.
According to his congregants, they are highly disappointed in him and would hand him over to the police for defrauding them.
