Why is the Ghanaian Christian God so cruel?

The Ghanaian Christian God has always been cruel, demanding, and utterly bereft of grace. We are taught that he inflicts painful things, such as disease, famine, road accidents, even poverty, not just on those who do not know or fear Him but also on believers who stray. Sermons like the Archbishop’s tell us that sometimes God does inflict pain to test our faith. This God makes the cruelest God in Kumawood films seem merciful (not that I believe our indigenous religious practices are what ignorant filmmakers portray).
