|Religion / Salvation - Why Is Jesus Christ The Only Way To Heaven? by agwom(m): 6:10am|
Many religions might say confidently that through their spiritual program their followers can work their way to heaven. However, these religions never successfully address the most important spiritual issue, sin. For no amount of good works can cleanse people of sin and give them a righteous nature acceptable to God.
Everyone born on this earth, except Jesus Christ, has come short of God's glory because they have inherited the fallen sinful nature of Adam. Each person is born spiritually dead, a sinner. So, what is the answer to the sin problem?
Because God is just, there must be punishment for sin. God the Father laid the sins of all mankind upon Jesus Christ and allowed Him to be the perfect sacrifice for our sins on the cross, receiving unto Himself the punishment we deserved. His bloody death, burial and resurrection redeemed mankind from the power and bondage of sin, providing salvation through faith in Jesus Christ. So, you cannot work your way to heaven, but you can put your trust in the shed blood of Jesus Christ to take away your sins and receive a new righteous nature pleasing to God. Sin problem solved.
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved" (Romans 10:9 KJV).
The main purpose of Christ's sacrifice was to reconcile man to God. God the Father longed for mankind to be redeemed and adopted into His family. He wanted to once again have intimacy with His children, showing them His great love by blessing and giving them a glorious inheritance, "which is Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27 KJV).

|Literature / Re: We Are Able (A Touching Story) by SammyO4real: 5:05am|
Daddy didn't pay attention to us for one week. Mrs. Oyin accommodates us throughout those times. Every evening we will go to our house to beg him, but he is adamant.
However, he allowed me to enter the house and pick all my clothes, including my school uniform. Bode sticks out his tongue at me, mocking me.
We left the house again on the seventh day, but only Mrs Oyin returned to speak to him. He agrees to take us in.
--- --- --- --- --- --- ---
Bode didn't stop to offend me. But I did all I can do to avoid having trouble with him. At an instance, Bode slaps me. It is a big shock for me. Nobody has ever slapped me and go scot free before. Even Bose, the big girl everybody fears in school, is not up to my standard. I can remember the day I beat her and poured sand in her mouth.
Bode is four years younger than me, yet he will not respect his senior. He is becoming very pompous, maybe because Daddy is overprotecting him.
Bode is too dull for my liking. His exercise books are painted all over with zeros. Maybe he is having that dullness in common with his mother, because as for me, I am not dull in school, meaning that my parents are not dull too. But if it works that way, why then am I deaf and dumb when both of my parents are normal? That is a question for my science teacher.
It has been better if Bode's pomposity is all the pain my mother has to cope with. Toyosi his mother always come to check on him every weekend. Bode will tell lies to her about me and the woman will begin to blab and threaten me. She says that if anything bad happens to her son, then I should count myself dead.
It's like daddy still likes Toyosi a lot. Anytime she comes around, daddy will take her to his room and lock the door. Then they will send my mummy out of the room. They must have been having extramarital affair.
One day I ask my mummy to divorce daddy, but she refused.
"Rose, I can't do that," she says. "God doesn't like divorce."
"If God doesn't like divorce then why can't he also prevent things that can lead to divorce?" I grumble over my nose.
"Don't say so, Rose!" mummy shuns me. My eyes are wet already. I am going to shed tears. She comes around me and put her arms around my neck. Her long hair falls on my nape. She doesn't like seeing me in tears. "Rose, in the end we shall overcome," she says eventually.
I advise my mummy to trace Toyosi to her husband's house and reveal the secret once and for all, but she waves away the idea. Instead, she picks up that boring song again 'We Shall Overcome'.
My Common Entrance Examination will soon be here, but daddy refuses to get past questions and answers series for me. Mummy tries her best and gets them for me.
My school is Ejigbo Standard School. It is both for the normal people and the special ones. Since the day I make that resolution that I will be calm, I haven't fought anybody. I didn't even talk to anyone let alone quarrelling with them and this again becomes my classteacher's headache. She will call me into her office and ask me why my name doesn't make the name of noisemaker list anymore.
"But you have told me to cease from making noise many times, and now I'm doing that, what again?" I say.
Mrs Oyin keeps quiet. She doesn't know what to say any more.
... ... ... ... ... ... ...
One day, I iron my white cloth as I get prepared for school. That particular morning, I wake up happy. I don't know why. Mother notices it before she leaves for work. Now I go to school myself because I am twelve. I am the one to take Bode to school as usual. His own school is just a stone throw from our house, but I have been mandated to take him there before going to my own school.
Bode has been yawning since the time mummy wakes him up to take his bath. The last time I check on him, he just got into the bathroom. I didn't want to be late because I am the Time Keeper of my school. Sometimes whenever I ring the bell it looks funny to me because I can't hear the sound of what I am ringing. But I have come to learn something: the blind cannot become a time keeper because they don't have eyes to check the time. Yet, they are always the first set of people to come out of their classes at the sound of the bell, touching the walls for guidance and support. It's like the walls themselves are useful. Nothing in the world is a waste Mrs Oyin will tell us many times, just to make us know that WE ARE ABLE.
As a Time Keeper, I am supposed to be in school early, but this morning I haven't seen the possiblity; not when Bode hasn't taken his bath not to talk of eating his food, yet it is 7:24am already. It is obvious I will be late to school this time around. I can't really remember the last time I go late to school.
I leave my cloth to check on Bode if he has finished taken his bath, to my surprise he is not in the bathroom. I check the toilet to see if he is there. No, he is not there. I resign and return to the table where I am ironing my cloth, to my surprise, the cloth has been soaked up with red oil.
I raise the cloth up. Tears flow down my cheek when I see that my cloth has been burnt up with iron. I did put off the pressing iron when I went to look for Bode, so how come my cloth is now burnt up?
Bode crawls out from under the table, laughing. He gives me a note and runs away. I read it:
I don't want to go to school today
I become mad. Is it because he didn't want me to take him to school that he has to burn and stain my cloth? I am enraged within me. I sit quietly and fold my hands.
Bode comes and sticks his tongue at me as usual. He is taking my silence for cowardice. He should have gone to my school a year ago to ask them my name: Rose The Tiger. Even Bose the Big Boss cannot face me let alone this small Bode.
Bode spreads his ten fingers at me. I hardly joke with my mother. How can he be cursing my mother? Okay, what has my mummy got to do in this matter? The tiger in me begins to form when I see those dirty fingers. His cup is full. It is time to teach him a lesson.
No, I think. I have resolved in my mind that I will be gentle a year back and I have endured for that long, so let me not fight back.
Bode seems to be in the mood today. He wants to get me angry by all means. He comes behind me and taps my nape. Kpash! It sounds like thunderbolt. I become mad at him.
I raise Bode high up by the neck. The rest is a story. He falls down. dead? Still alive? I can't tell.
"Ah!" my brain speaks. "I have killed somebody."

i am not attaching sentiments to this but i guess most niger deltans hate him cos of his alliance with APC.

|Religion / Re: Another Proof That Jesus Christ Is Not An Angel!!!! by johnw74(m): 1:47am|
Archangel Michael doesn't have Saints, God does, Jesus Christ comes with all His Saints
Its very clear that Christ is the arch angel because Jesus is described as arch - angel in 1the 4:16. Whose voice will raise the dead ? Joh 5:25
Jesus is not described as Archangel in 1 Thess 4:16
but twisting taking away from and adding to scripture is normal jw practise
For the benefit of believers
Joh 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
1Th 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
The Angel of the Lord is often the voice of the Lord,
Jesus Christ sent revelation to John through His Angel,
and he spoke as if he is the Lord
According to jw reasoning
If because Jesus Christ comes with the voice of the archangel means that Jesus Christ is the archangel, then Jesus Christ coming with the trump of God means that Jesus Christ is the trumpet.
1Thess 3:13 shows that Jesus Christ Who comes with all His Saints, is God and not an Angel.
1Th 3:13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saint.
As Heb 1:5 shows the Father saying He has never called an Angel His begotten Son.
Heb 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
Are Saints, God's Saints?
Are Saints, Michael's Saints?
"Jesus Christ comes with all His Saints"

Thanks for the info but thanks especially for giving me the privilege of reaching you directly via this thread.
Had been longing to find out what is happening to the thread: "How to make a Huge success online with PPD" by Queensss. Can't even see the its 'reply' button. This present challenge has literally killed the thread....a promising thread that was to help bless and change the lives of many Nairalanders for the better. Why..Lalasticlala?.
Please do fellow Nigerians/Nairalanders great favour by restoring the functionalities on the thread to enable us continue the tutorials to a logical end. There's no job in the land so anything that could help Nairalanders build a better life should be taken into considerations by the admin.
|Religion / Re: Who Is The Spirit Of Truth In The Holly Bible. by tonybosses: 12:53am|
The problem is you people believe that there is noway you can understand the koran that the only person that can is your imam...so what ever the drunk old man says is law!!!
Your koran say prophect mohammed is dead and Jesus is still alive
In the koran prophet mohammed was mentioned in 4 place, Jesus in 25 places
Your koran say Jesus is word of God
Your koran says Jesus is spirit of God
Your koran says Jesus created a bird from clay, breath into it and it became a living bird it got life!!!
Your koran says Jesus cuured a. Man born blind and a man with leprosy and gave life to dead ppl
Your koran says Jesus is in heaven and he would come again!!
None of these was said of mohammed, infact he is dead!!!
Now what do you think?
Do you think mohammed was joking when he said "if you don't understand this book go and ask the christians"?
Sit down ponder about something, read your koran and try pick a bible and read as well...

She is shortsighted and tyrion has told her before that she is not as smart as she thinks she is.

Sansa should just lay low until she is good at this stuff before she starts doing it (war of words). See how Ramsey outsmarted her again.
