This project seeks to investigate and examine the theological and biblical foundations of corruption and how they can be used to empower Ghanaian Christians to fight corruption in their places of work. The goal is to encourage the Ghanaian Christian worker to become the salt and light in their workplaces as mandated by the Lord/ Jesus: “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled by men. You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden” (Matt. 5:13-14). Christians are to become agents of transformation by emulating the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who confronted the systems and authorities of his time on the issue of corruption and social injustice. The study uses qualitative research methods to learn the Ghanaian Christian workers’ views on corruption and their understanding regarding the biblical view of corruption.
A seminar-workshop on empowering the Ghanaian Christian worker to fight workplace corruption through the knowledge of biblical and theological concepts of corruption was designed and conducted among the research respondents and some selected Christian leaders. The aim of the seminar was to deepen their understanding of the biblical view of corruption and their roles as Christians in fighting against it.
