Two things stopped doing.

Two things I stopped doing (should I say since a long time ago?)

1. I stopped saying “I’m proud to be a baptist,” Yea, I was born a baptist, went to all their programmes and for real that’s why I’m standing now. But I have come to understand God hates sectarianism, *in fact Jesus rebuked his disciples when they told him of someone who was not part of them who called and used his name to heal. So now I believe it’s fine for me to say “I’m proud to be a Christian.” Even in our diversity Christ is what makes us One.
I debunk bigoty denominationalism.

2. I stopped knowing God on a surface or general level; Knowing God on the basis of what my pastor said or any other person said. I found out that knowing God personally is cool. You get to know him for who he is and what he can do and what he is incapable of doing through his word. Now no one can toss me around like a die 🎲, If it’s not in the word of God, I won’t go with it.

THE CONVICT
Oh! That prison wasn’t a good place to be at all. It was a dirty place where dirty things are done by dirty people of our calibre.

The dew drops of memory of how cruel and inhuman the hands of those warders were goes beyond description as their hands wickedly shapened us that we almost despair with our lives ; Remembering the tyrannic philosophy of ‘officer Religion’ makes me shiver as though I was still in his web. He was an expert in dishing out “hard and life-choking works’ to us which are usually exponentially beyond our carrying and bearing capacity( no matter how we doubled ourefforts.) The loads on our plates is a mountain that our iron-made fork cannot summon. Yet, he will want us have them done at all cost. And who are we to say no? After all, being a prisoner is to live according to the dictate of the warders. That of ‘officer religion’ won’t be different! I could as well remember that ‘slender-sly officer’ called immorality. With his easy-to- break- backbone, he landed many to great troubles by building unnecessary stimulation in their body systems backing it up with satanic ideas on how to be drown in lust and call it love. And when he has landed guys into problem, the victim blame the devil. What a subtle person ‘officer immorality was?’ what am I to say of officer greed and pride- both are best of friends, always using us to get things that benefit them at all cost, coupled with self-esteem. Time will fail me to tell you about some other warders like anger, gossip, lust, idolatry, drunkenness etc.

For the few days spent in the hands of this fragile warders, life was more than meaningless and miserable. Those few days seem like eternity. They respect no age just as they circumvent people to achieve ungodliness. For real, being in the prison isn’t a good thing, you are dictated and have no will of yours. No freedom at all to unleash your God’s given potentials. We thought it was cool at least we still have our friends together in this place and we even brand some of these things to make it all the more tushed (you understand all the packaging?)

Little did we know that our lives were wasting away and may eternally be prisoners to these no-mercy warders. But just at a time it seems we won’t leave the prison, we did! We walk out freely (not by prison break or jumping the fence), but through a man who walked us out of the prison to freedom. As I walked out of the gate, I exclaimed, ‘VICTORY AT LAST’ And he said, ‘this victory I have secured for you long ago but you keep turning it down. That is why you have been under the control of flesh and even the satan.

I am grateful that you showed me such a great love. Despite my disobedinece, you sought for me in this prison of shame. Thanks Sir.

I say thanks be to God for that man (Christ ) and faith in Him that set me free, oh! How free and happy I’m to be a slave to righteousness (swipes of Masters)! How sweet to be in Christ. Now I’m now a full citizen of a godly nation and family. Hallelujah!

“Before this faith came, we were held prisoners by the law, locked up until faith should be revealed. So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ that we might be justified by faith. Now that faith has come, we are no longer under the supervision of the law. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus- The Word.”

P.S: I enjoin you to please join this family if you haven’t by accepting Jesus into your life TODAY.
#LoveGod!

On Feminism and Chimamanda adichie’s ted talk

On Feminism and Chimamanda adichie's ted talkRecently I listened to Chimamanda Adichie’s speech on TED talk. She advised that we should all become a feminist. And I quite agreed with her though that might receive some reasonable level of contention.

I believe it’s all about our mindsets and thought pattern though. It must be worked on, for real. As a Christian, my Bible never thought me females are to males, in fact Galatians 3:28 says “There is neither ….. male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

That shows that non is inferior to each other neither is there a garb of superiority designed for any though with some considerations which are not necessary in this line. we all have chances to dream, have visions and unleash them without being gender biased.

But here is an exception, and this is where many feminist gets it wrong. When it comes to a husband and his wife, the case is different. Bible says Wives should respect their husbands. Husbands should also love their wives (it’s more like respecting them too). I agree non is inferior but ladies must know that submitting to their husbands is a key to a successful marriage and men should also know that loving and honoring their wives also spices and garnishes their marriage.

For real, personally I won’t love to marry a lady that’s inferior, that can’t cook (cause I love food) as well as one that cannot prayer and study the word. Wonder how she will be able to teach our children the undiluted word of God. Or a lady that has no vision and a will power. I won’t love to marry such woman. And I won’t ever be threatened by my wife’s accomplishments because I know we are one.

You could see the foreknowledge of God when He spoke through Apostle Paul in 1 cor 11:3 that, “But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.” I think much headache will be prevented if we get this.

Men also should know that not all ladies are submitted to you, when you ain’t Solomon (mirth). But for real if a she is your supervisor or president or madam in your office or establishment, I don’t see anything bad In it. It could be the other way round and nobody will complain.
