Mujtahida:
In SS 2- because I grew up on the Airforce Base where everything is documented as per military na - my colleagues in class happened on a document containing the list of people who had gotten born again in Primary four and behold yours truly's name was on it. My friends taunted me with it for days knowing I was very much a rascal like the rest of them. Chai, christianity with born again and backsliding and rededication merry go round.

A long time later as an adult I became born again for the umpteenth time. Went to church and put all my money in the offering basket believing God will miraculously provide a means of transportation home and strengthen my faith. Omo, I trekked home ooo and quite some distance it was. Not up to five years ago I did the same thing as my mumu never do. Had to go beg for lift after dropping my all by faith for Church building project.

My Holy Spirit baptism during my University days was something else. Was rolling on the ground laughing uncontrollably like the possessed maniac of Gedera. Went to church Sunday of that week and just started crying one kind dry cry(I am an unemotional person) and repeating this: He has called me, he has called me, he has called me. I was taken by the Elders to the church annex and prayed for as a rising spiritual star. I used to believe I was the Paul of this generation.

Was very active in Living Faith then. Went to church and the pastor preached on faith and said we should try to practice what was preached so much so that on Monday next I got up, went to Park and Shop in Abuja, believing I will come back with a lap top. While there, I saw some Lebanese and began to move closer to them believing they will come through for my faith. Last, last I had to beg for tp home and immediately I got home I started laughing at my own folly. I later got a laptop three years after while in law school through the bursary paid by my State Government.

I still believe in God but basically that God- like the insightful Athenians posit - is Unknown. I live my life free of the demands of religion. The Christian god of the Bible is a fraud, an impostor, an idol and a sick caricature of God.
I agree with you sir
I was also once am athiest but I have evolved to the point that I see that there is a far deeper phenomenon that we are unaware of and that the properties of God are unknown so you can call me a de facto agnostic thiest. God doesn't even have to be a sentiment being. The idea of Gpd waltzing around in the cosmos watching our every move and punishing people that didn't give a poo about him is just daft and idiotic

In the vast scales of time what does my sin and your sin mean to an infinite being called God? And is the god of the Bible one to judge us? I say no! I denounce that horror of a god.
If the god of the Bible stands trial in a human court he would be found guilty. Jesus died to redeem the old testament god and purge him of hate

Cheers brother. I'm glad you're no longer fearful of atheism like our Christard brethen and apologists painted it.

My big bro got me a nokia Java then, was browsing with the phone on the second night when it just shutdown, tried turning it on many times but to no avail, Chaii remembering how my bro use to warn me about taking it easy with phones, don't even know how I I'm going to start explaining things to him, the phone he bought for me 2days ago has already got spoited, Sneaked the phone into my room, bolted the door and started praying hard, prayed and made promises to God only if he can restore my phone back, prayed and prayed for hours until I slept off,
Woked the following morning, my heart was beating fast, press the start up botten and to my greatest surprise it turned on, I couldn't believe it, was so happy until I realized the phone was just a shadow compared to it's original self, can no longer be used for any thing, got frustrated and had to flash it with my hard earned money and it repeated exactly the same process again

Nokia3110c I always run with my life anytime I see the phone until Android started becoming popular grin

Don't you think god has crucial matters to attend to than fix a phone? grin

Some Christians don't even realise how they clown themselves and their god.

They don't need atheists for that

which kain craze be that?

gabe:
Wrote 'Mohammed is a liar. Only Jesus saves' on a cardboard sheet, went into the biggest mosque in town, went up front and held it up. I was waiting to be slashed with a machete. I had made up my mind to be a martyr that day. Instead, all the moslems in the mosque ignored me. Held up the sign for like 5 minutes, then said to myself 'u are not dying today' and got the fvck out of dodge.
