Religion / Re: Atheists Who Believe In Reincarnation , Spirits , Voodoo - Let's Discuss by KingEbukasBlog(m): 1:12pm
ifenes:


Mythology often come with different stories. Horus had other death stories. One claimed he was killed by a scorpion(meaning in the month of Scorpio) while another claimed by an Archer(meaning in the month of (Sagittarius). All are representative of betrayal and death.

Judas was claimed to have kissed Jesus(Scorpio represented Judas giving the Sun the kiss of death in Winter) and was latter hanged on the tree

Acts 5:30, The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.

Acts 13:29, And when they had fulfilled all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree, and laid him in a sepulcher.

Acts 10:39 ,And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:


Another book of the bible claimed it was Crucifixion on a cross. A cross is obviously different to a tree

John 19:19
19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was Jesus OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.

Mark 15:30
30 Save thyself, and come down from the cross.


Matthew 27:42
42 He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him.


What I am trying to say is the stories could be said in many ways but the focus should be the Astrological meaning. Whether Jesus's story included dying as a virgin or having a wife with children,it doesn't matter. Krishna,Mithra had similar stories but different narratives too.

Christ means Light and the light of the world is the Sun. Darkness is the opposite of the Sun,which kills the Sun at night,only for the Sun to rise from the dead in the morning. This applies to Seth,the God of the underworld,darkness etc Horizon came from the word Horus too,which means Horus-rising,rising Sun etc

Have you ever asked yourself what "Sunday" means and why do you go to church on Sundays?


The Sabbath day - Saturday - has always been sacrosanct even during the time of Christ . It was never Sunday .

Romance / Re: Ladies Do You Want Your Man To Truly Love You With All His Heart And Wife You? by firstking01(m): 12:49pm
icedbeatz:
We basically want someone to love, enjoy life with, Bleep and eat tasty meals but let me break it down.
1. A loyal girl that is trustworthy, we have to trust you not to do somethings. We want to be able to be in Pluto and vouch that No my baby cannot do that, defend you and later it happens to be true. We can trust you to not fk no one else but us,
2. SEX: A girl that will be and do all the crazy wild sexual acts, "all" that the guy fantasizes/desires and try to do it that time we want it and not later unless she's sick, I mean she's have to be our personal whor* and do wild wild things that will blow our goddamn brains out and make us run back to go and meet her. very important or we might run a game on another girl.
Pls don't do the dead people thingy by laying like a log of wood while we do all the job, be active in the project to reach the promise land you 1st before us.
By all means learn how to suck a dk!!! you ladies don't know how much we love that shitt its like Xmas+birthday+easter/Hanuka to us. Dk, balls all that do it you have an amazing reward waiting for you.
3. A girl that respects us and doesn't lash out at us but will find a mellow way to tell us what what we did wrong that they didn't like or how we wronged them it goes a lot deeper than when you girls shout we don't listen when you females shout it only repels you from us. Our moms and sisters been doing that ish we hate it.
Sometimes let him go out with his boys and spend quality time doing man stuff, ALLOW HIM TO BE A MAN(or he might see you as an emasculator )
4. Nagging?! HELL NO HELL NO HELL NO if you want to chase us away from you as fast as a cheetah then just start nagging us we will look for another female to confide in, care and even love. Nothing kills a man's love faster than nagging. Better cool down and "communicate" with us than shout because we won't listen to poo immediately a female starts shouting.
5. A girl that can handle things, that can take care of things even when we're not around we can relax about somethings because we know we have you and that you can handle it.
6. A listener and supporter, most times before a guy talks to you about whatever is troubling him he already has plans of how he's going to solve it and wants someone to share his trials and tribulation with but you can brainstorm an idea on solving the problem and suggest it to him and he might end up following your idea, you two are supposed to share ideas so here's the opportunity. When he knows that you got his back and you actually demonstrates so automatically you're now golden and he won't let anyone mess with you, he can murder for you if he believes and knows that you got his back there's nothing he won't do for you.
You have to believe, support and root for his ambitions no matter what it is don't put him down or else you just planted a resentment, ALLOW HIM TO BE A MAN.
7. Don't pester him for money all the time, if you're observant you will be able to know when he's got dough and when he ain't got dough.
If you're doing your part well he will be glad to spend on you at any slightest opportunity unless he has a project in mind.
8. There's like two more but let me stop here but basically someone we can truly trust, that believes us and our goals (no matter what the goal is), that respects us and never CHALLENGES US or goes at a thug of war with us if we are mad and burning let us go off don't challenge us that moment we're red let us calm down then "communicate" to us about our bad act if we were wrong that simple act elevates you to the peak, we might do some crap but won't let no one fk with you.
9. Your man is your baby, you see as you ladies love petting we love that ish too so pet your man, care for him and show him how much you live him. I know most of you ladies are afraid to show a guy how much you live him due to you think that he will start acting up let me explain something. If he's a fkboy he will act up then you will know and let the fkboy go unless you want to be with a fkboy but if he's a real G he will love you 10 folds or more. You see sine guys literally dying to save their girl/wife and you think its magic hell no! the girl have done her job by loving, caring, f**king, holding her guy down, doing the right things he likes and correcting him in a loving way (not nagging) believe me ain't no real guy that will ever play with such girl.
10. A good chef, most guys don't play with their stomach so you have to be good in cooking and whipping tasty meals out from the kitchen but some of us can manage your cooking if you are not bad or just OK due to your other qualities like up there we can say fk it she can learn or we can call a professional chef to teach us so we can cook together have fun while doing so or you can teach us too.
11. Each guy has an extra option that is personal to him that he can add here that he wants in his ideal lady. We think alike but there's always a single thing that differentiates us so try to know your bf/guy/man so that you can have an awesome relationship.
NOTE: Some ladies would be fussing why should I do all these?! who is he?! what about me?! what is he going to do for me?! well he will do all that up there and more than you ever imagined. We're ready to love you ladies like crazy but we have to be able to REALLY trust you and be sure that you're loyal but too many gold diggers are spoiling it for the good ladies and guys have kept their heart in safe boxes but you can unlock it if you can prove that you're HIS RIDE OR DIE CHICK then he will open up to you. Live and love more life is so sweet.
Sincerely i couldn't read anything cos your writing is too jampacked and conjested...learn to space your work, it's not a difficult thing to do....use the space bar on your phone that has a filet and arrow shape.

MrsPhyno:
Nothing pains me more then when I see people lying about history comfortably. It's a disgusting example of why the Nigerian govt doesn't want to mandate history being taught in schools, unlike every other reasonable govt of the world. "Those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it"

If one more sanctimonious prick says Ojukwu fought the war for oil, or pride, someone should probably flog them. Such a person should know that they are either as much of a liar as the Devil, or as uneducated as, well, Buhari.

My grandfather almost died running from violent mobs in Kano that were killing every Igbo person or even Igbo seeming person they could find. His best friend died that day, and his car got stolen because he had to leave it in his flight.

My father and his brothers almost got kwashiorkor in that war, and my granduncle was severely injured in the army. My father didn't start primary school till he was 9, because of unrest and war. My other grand uncles were trapped in Lagos and were afraid to move home, for fear of drawing attention to themselves. I can recount more tales and just be aware that a majority of Igbo ppl and even the some of the so-called igboid ppl can recount such too. Some even worse.

OJUKWU WENT TO WAR BECAUSE "NIGERIANS" were slaughtering Igbo ppl like rams in the North. I'm not gonna say what happened in Lagos too, before ppl jump down my throat. After the severallllll massacres, Igbo ppl fled to their homeland (ppl like my grandfather, who my father tells me they thought he was dead for a while). Ojukwu being the leader of the Eastern Region, asked the Nigerian govt. Gini bu this? Thought we were one Nigeria? If we are being not just perscuted but slaughtered in our own country, then it is obviously not ours. If our brothers hate us enough to kill us, and some hate us enough to watch others kill us; then we are not brothers.

Ojukwu was Moses you uneducated..... in fact lemme not insult. Igbo ppl have no pipe dream called Biafra, Biafra was a creation borne out of necessity. CAUSE SOME OF YOU PPLS GRANDPARENTS WERE TRYING TO EXTERMINATE MINE. Igbo ppl don't even worship Ojukwu self, the man was crazy and had severe flaws. But we know that he wasn't wrong. That he did what any reasonable person would do. Igbo ppl, in that situation, would do it all over agin.

Until the day Nigeria apologizes for the 2nd largest Ethnic Massacre in Africa, and one of the top 15 in the history of the world, I believe; we can never live in perfect community. Germany apologized to the Jews, the Namibians. America apologized to the Native Americans, the Vietnamese. It helped them move forward.

They need to apologize to the Igbo ppl, cause even God hasn't forgiven the pointless waste of lives and neither have we.
Nobody will apologies, because it was a necessary and important war. U can keep waiting for an apology, or when u get tired and frustrated while waiting, u can hang urself

Politics / Re: APC Leader Behind Attacks On Kyari, Daura, Group Alleges by billyG: 12:35pm
TonyeBarcanista:
Bro, let's be honest!

Buhari is threading the path of Jonathan who abandoned Obj that brought him to power and instead aligned with Edwin Clark and other appointees that had no real political clout. At the end, Obj joined forces with powerhouses like BAT in APC to kick him out of power.

Buhari is threading same path, his sycophants see Tinubu as a "common foe", the best for Jagaban is to switch over to PDP where he will be given his due place and help bring down the government in 2019 as well as punishing his haters especially in his SW. BAT can't cope with a new party that will make him contend with the forces in PDP and APC, his continuous stay in APC will also cause more embarrassment.

He gotta join forces with us.WE NEED HIM
Make he do wetin?leave his party go join dead pdp?my guy no vex ooo!i dey beg u stop taking shekpe.

Romance / Re: A Guy Just Found Out His Girlfriend Has Been Married For 4 Years. by chillingbabe: 12:01pm
balash:
As you read this my people, I am a dead man walking. My nights recently have been the worst ever since I was born. The woman I thought was going to be the mother of my children misrepresented herself to me.

I visited a top restaurant in Lagos back in January, 2015 where I met my current girlfriend. Truth be told, it was a one night stand that sort of just blossomed into a serious relationship. Because for the first time in my adult life in Lagos, I met a great looking woman who wasn’t desperate to lock down a well to-do guy.

I am 32 years old, my girl is 28. I have a well paid job, I live in Lekki. It was until I started
dating Yemisi that I realized I wanted to settle down and start my own family. I had been living like a young guy enjoying my oil money.


Before we got serious, I and Yemisi talked about everything – marriage goals, career, kids, extended families. We were brutally honest with each other and shared ‘secrets’, everything about our past relationships. I never felt happier and more fulfilled waking up in the mornings and dressing up to leave for work knowing I was going to see my babe every evening.

Yemisi never spent a night at my place no matter how much I pressured her. I took it that it meant she was well disciplined and sincerely had no reason to worry my head. Afterall I saw her whenever I wanted. The days were all ours to enjoy and get naughty in each other’s arms. It seemed as though we were perfect for each other.


This woman is kinky! On her own, whenever we made love, Yemi will take photos of us in the heat of the moment because according to her, she needed something to remind her of me till we stay together again.

I was so in love and very fulfilled! Yemi met my family and the handful of friends that I keep. I never got to meet hers except for her best friend who came around to pick her from my place once or twice.

Last week, out of the blues, Yemisi showed up at my place panicking and in tears. She was shaking. I was trying to get her to calm down when she started telling me that the last 21 months have been the best days of her life. How I am a perfect man and she wishes she had met me sooner. Then she asked me to listen to what she has to tell me no matter what.

Yemisi told me she has been married for 4 years to another man in this same Lagos! No kids yet.

That she and her husband had become frustrated with each other and their marriage, They were not agreeing on so many things and were having many conflicts. The night we first met at the restaurant, she and him had had a very heated argument, he abandoned the house for her, she left the house as well to go chill out, met me and ended up in my bed.

Well, her husband has found out she was cheating on him, he had seen our N@kkd pictures, flew into a rage, and threw her out of his house! He’s threatening fire and brimstone that their marriage is over.

She’s currently staying with one of her aunts in Surulere while the family tries to make peace. That at this point in her life though, she doesn’t really care much if he doesn’t agree to take her back. She has realized I am the one she truly loves.

Because she didn’t want me to hear the story  from anyone else, she came to tell me herself.

I was way too shocked to say anything else till Yemisi left my house. I told my family and friends. They are all in shock as well.

I haven’t talked to Yemisi since she came to confess. She hasn’t called me either. What do I do?

Yemisi hasn't called you afterwards cos she thinks you can't be with her anymore,she hid this away from you all this while,she feels you will never forgive her. Try to find out what they were always fighting about. She has been married for 4years without a child?? Hope she doesn't have any issue with childbearing, hmmmm...I still think you need to know more about this her failed marriage..So pick up your phone and put a call through to yemisi if you think you're still interested in her & knowing more about the issue..#Deuces cool

Which mistake? You are clearly not serious and not a Yoruba . You will soon see the grave consequences if something is not quickly done. Unlike those fighting Tinubu,he has the experience,human and material resources to single-handedly kill a national party.It was things like this that made him kill a national party, AD and built a new one ,AC, from the scratch.
The political destiny of the west has always been in their own hands.

And what stops Buhari from building his own political structures in the West which by the way he is already doing with the best materials APC west has or should I say had; and then waiting at the last moment to ambush Tinubu when he wants to strike back. I am dead sure the likes of Fashola will have passed on the 'Tinubu Files' and they will be in an unplugged microwave oven waiting.....

My friend, in politics you are a toddler. This is a ex-president you guys are toying, an ex-civil war veteran and general, an ex-coupist and a blue blooded fulani man. He is no Jonathan and will not go against his will a second time. There is a reason he has been kept out of leadership all these years. Tinubu gambled and lost by backing him then like a typical novice punter throws more cards away to recover and keeps getting it wrong.

It was a big, big, big mistake not to accede the party leadership to Buhari and now a bigger one to undermine him. Who is Tinubu going to use to 'replace' Buhari when all 2015 candidates are compromised or under investigation.

Guy. Buhari holds all the aces now and is proving to be as impermeable as a crocodile in water. I've said he doesn't respond to inhouse corruption. Tinubu should have read his history. His snipers have now fired the first shot and given themselves away. Oh boy just wait for the response in time.

wirinet:
Kingebuka is being dishonest as usual. The question is dead on arrival.
Now let me ask counter questions;
How many known atheists do you known during the medieval period?

How many atheists can live to tell the public they were atheists during the medieval era?

How many heretics ( people who question church doctrines ) were killed during the medieval age? For God sake it was only recently in 1992 that the catholic church apologized for persecuting Galelio Galelei for simply saying the earth resolves around the sun against church doctrines, and you expected someone to announce that God does not exist?

Most of the so called Christians did not make scientific research and breakthrough because of Christian doctrines, but because they went against Christian doctrines. Even if they had atheist thiughts, they dare not announce it.

All these are cavils honestly - I proved so on this very page , see my responses to weah96 .

Which Christrian doctrines exactly were gone against ?

Rising Atheism

by Deji Yesufu

More and more young people are ditching religion altogether and increasingly resorting to atheism. This reality was brought home to me some two years ago when atheists almost overran the religion section of Nairaland. They began to even ask for their own section – claiming a new type of religion. The anonymous nature of the forum afforded them the liberty to express their thoughts. Seun Osewa, the owner of the forum, himself had renounced Christianity and the thread were he told his story was a bestseller of some sort.

While many people vilify atheism in our nation, one must appreciate the fact that it takes a great deal to be one and those who profess atheism are about the soundest and most rational human beings. Man is by default religious. To throw away that default position requires a great deal of study and boldness. In the long run, atheism is another religion – a religion without a god. One of the greatest books in my library is “Loosing the Bonds” by Andrew Kirk. It is a book dedicated to studying different religions. He dedicates some chapters to atheism.

Kirk discusses three men that changed the face of modern sociology. They are Karl Marx, Frederich Nitchzhe and Sigmund Freud. Marx gave us Socialism and Communism. Nitchzhe suggested that “God is dead”. He invented the “Superman” and his thoughts brought about fascism. Freud developed modern psychiatry. All of them great men but all of them avowed atheists. Kirk argued in his book that there was a great deal Christians could learn from atheists’ criticism of religion and if Christians will do this, they will be the better for it.

It is my humble submission in view of all these that Pentecostalism is adding to rising atheism in the land. While it may not be the primary cause, it is a major contributing factor. Why? Pentecostalism is anti intellectual. It is highly subjective and very non rational. It thrives on a belief in miracles in a world of science and technology. Pentecostalism just does not fit the aggressive and progressive mind of Nigerian youths and thus it is increasingly thrown into the dustbin. This might have been my fate had I not possessed something in my knowledge of God beyond bland subjectivity.

This leads me to why true Christianity ought to appeal to an atheist. The true Christian religion is founded on sound knowledge. The Christian faith is possessed of true understanding of God before any subjective experience of God. With the coming of the 16th century Reformation, Christianity took on a new knowledge base. Even Roman Catholic scholasticism came to life. The Protestant religion brought light to Europe; it opened the search for knowledge in science and birth the industrial revolution of the 19th century that gave us modern science. Therefore the true Christian faith shares a great deal with atheists and if they will listen to the gospel, they will end up by far greater Christian scholars than many. Case in point: C. S. Lewis.

The man who gave us Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, is a raving atheist. But all of us religious people use his invention to promote our views. In my first interview with Edmund Obilo, he confessed on live Radio that he cannot remember when last he was in church. There is no better broadcaster than him in Ibadan. I remember approaching some senior citizens to invite them to attend my fellowship. They told me that religion sets people back. It deters their thinking. It doesn’t promote intellectualism. I just sat there watching.

You cannot sell signs, wonders and miracles to 21st century thinkers – it is just simply out of date. And my findings shows that even the God of the Bible has outdated miracles. Instead he has blessed man with such resounding knowledge that if my generation will spend less time at Redeem Camp and other prayer camps, we will find the cure to AIDS, Cancer and other debilitating diseases of our time. While at the same time adding to the science revolution and increase our nation’s gross productivity. Thereby creating jobs and wealth for the people. This is the type of work the gospel encourages; work that produces better feeding! He that will not work cannot eat!! Let us wake up. The atheists are challenging us.

I am not promoting atheism here. I am simply saying that Pentecostalism and many other religion that thrive on the subjective are adding nothing to science and modern thinkers have no time for such nonsense. I am also saying that the true Christian faith is highly intellectual. It appeals to the mind as it convinces the sinner of a need for a Savior.

You guys crossed the line by labeling people who do not believe in your religion "Sinner". Meaning they are contaminated and here lies your problem...you are being pompous and judgmental which is ironically the same thing you claimed your Jewish messiah preached agaisnt. Who are you to call others sinners and in need of a savior. You want people to accept your faith by condemning them? How does that work?.

The born again person however does not then sell his brain to the church, rather he becomes a thinker. Whether he is a theologian, a scientist, a technologist, a broadcaster, a writer, or even a politician, he brings in a finesse of knowledge into his profession that adds to it. Christians are already disciplined individuals and thus can use their time for productive ventures. This is the reason why early scientists were mostly Christians.

A born again person actually sells himself to the church. Tell me how how being born again(a Christendom initiate)is a thinker? Because once you convert to a certain ideology,you are obliged to adhere to all the rules in that Cult and cannot think for himself. Thou shalt not eat sardine means sardine eating is wrong,and why? because the bible said so

For example,if you are a person who is Gay tolerant,becoming a christian-born again means you will automatically be inclined to condemn them even to the point of persecution. Noisily nosing into other people's business, sprinkled with a liberal amount of condemning non-believers to hell..... The person becomes far from a thinker but a servant who obeys basically all the laws in the bible,which includes stoning wayward kids to death(that's if they are really born again). I don't see how a born again could be a thinker because you scroll to the bible to see if a particular T shirt you are about to buy is a sin

There is increasing atheism in the land and I hereby present the gospel to these folks as a sound alternative to the mere religion they are raging against.

You will need to come up with much stronger point to convince anyone that your religion is for upgraded minds.

Romance / A Guy Just Found Out His Girlfriend Has Been Married For 4 Years. by balash(m): 11:18am
As you read this my people, I am a dead man walking. My nights recently have been the worst ever since I was born. The woman I thought was going to be the mother of my children misrepresented herself to me.

I visited a top restaurant in Lagos back in January, 2015 where I met my current girlfriend. Truth be told, it was a one night stand that sort of just blossomed into a serious relationship. Because for the first time in my adult life in Lagos, I met a great looking woman who wasn’t desperate to lock down a well to-do guy.

I am 32 years old, my girl is 28. I have a well paid job, I live in Lekki. It was until I started
dating Yemisi that I realized I wanted to settle down and start my own family. I had been living like a young guy enjoying my oil money.


Before we got serious, I and Yemisi talked about everything – marriage goals, career, kids, extended families. We were brutally honest with each other and shared ‘secrets’, everything about our past relationships. I never felt happier and more fulfilled waking up in the mornings and dressing up to leave for work knowing I was going to see my babe every evening.

Yemisi never spent a night at my place no matter how much I pressured her. I took it that it meant she was well disciplined and sincerely had no reason to worry my head. Afterall I saw her whenever I wanted. The days were all ours to enjoy and get naughty in each other’s arms. It seemed as though we were perfect for each other.


This woman is kinky! On her own, whenever we made love, Yemi will take photos of us in the heat of the moment because according to her, she needed something to remind her of me till we stay together again.

I was so in love and very fulfilled! Yemi met my family and the handful of friends that I keep. I never got to meet hers except for her best friend who came around to pick her from my place once or twice.

Last week, out of the blues, Yemisi showed up at my place panicking and in tears. She was shaking. I was trying to get her to calm down when she started telling me that the last 21 months have been the best days of her life. How I am a perfect man and she wishes she had met me sooner. Then she asked me to listen to what she has to tell me no matter what.

Yemisi told me she has been married for 4 years to another man in this same Lagos! No kids yet.

That she and her husband had become frustrated with each other and their marriage, They were not agreeing on so many things and were having many conflicts. The night we first met at the restaurant, she and him had had a very heated argument, he abandoned the house for her, she left the house as well to go chill out, met me and ended up in my bed.

Well, her husband has found out she was cheating on him, he had seen our N@kkd pictures, flew into a rage, and threw her out of his house! He’s threatening fire and brimstone that their marriage is over.

She’s currently staying with one of her aunts in Surulere while the family tries to make peace. That at this point in her life though, she doesn’t really care much if he doesn’t agree to take her back. She has realized I am the one she truly loves.

Because she didn’t want me to hear the story  from anyone else, she came to tell me herself.

I was way too shocked to say anything else till Yemisi left my house. I told my family and friends. They are all in shock as well.

I haven’t talked to Yemisi since she came to confess. She hasn’t called me either. What do I do?
Religion / Re: Rising Atheism By Deji Yesufu by PastorAIO: 11:09am
GeneralTee:

Kirk discusses three men that changed the face of modern sociology. They are Karl Marx, Frederich Nitchzhe and Sigmund Freud. Marx gave us Socialism and Communism. Nitchzhe suggested that “God is dead”. He invented the “Superman” and his thoughts brought about fascism. Freud developed modern psychiatry. All of them great men but all of them avowed atheists. Kirk argued in his book that there was a great deal Christians could learn from atheists’ criticism of religion and if Christians will do this, they will be the better for it.

Nietzsche's thoughts did not bring fascism. Nazis distorted this thoughts to support their ideology. Pretty much the same way that Jesus did not teach the greater part of what is called christianity today.

Freud: There is a difference between Psychology and Psychiatry.

Religion / Re: Another Gospel: The Benny Hinn Experience by 4everGod: 11:08am
TheSixthSense:

You're right. It is certainly reads wrongly packaged and I should have looked at the overall motive. I'm a terrible liar if I say I haven't had a rethink about my recent posts.

It helped me greatly too. It just that I see a different person from the one that wrote the book. But all the same a misguided post.

I should know better. Who can understand the ways of God. He would use a stone if he wanted to.

I find it creepy for someone to go to the grave of a dead person. It's why we disagree with the catholics and white garments.

I was not being emotional, I believe it was a dishonest prayer and desire for any christian to have and thought of it as covetous of the sinner's wealth/money, which is a violation of God's commandment. But you may be right, the message might have been for someone else. I only shared my experience.


I still strongly disagree with the seed(money) faith principles of the word of faith churches. My post only wrongly expresses it.


I will but I hope the others that quote me would as well.


I have gone before the Lord and repenting. I apologise for any discord sown. It was never my intention to bring disunity, I only encourage people to read their bibles and I believe it is okay to disagree with anything that has no biblical basis in church. God bless you richly for your wise counsel


Even here on nairaland I see you as more than a brother and your humility humbles me even more.
The body of Christ needs our prayers and intercessions anf those who have bee going astray will return by Gods grace and mercy and we will all rejoice.

God bless you brother. You inspire me.
Politics / Re: The Mercenaries Ojukwu Hired To Fight During The Biafra-Nigerian War (Video) by Zedoo(m): 11:04am
Ballmer:


Grandstanding, if Ojukwu was right as you have proclaimed please always note he failed woefully at freeing his people also. He as not been vindicated for leaving his people in what you term a disaster. I do not see vindication on his path all I see is a weakling educated in the best military schools of Europe and with a race as determined as the Igbo he could not outsmart the Northerner led army that does nothing but chew goro n sips kunu. What more can be termed a failure ?!

Ojukwu deserve to be brought back to life and flogged a million times for wasting igbos lives on a course he could not guarantee victory. War my friend is not the olympics where you win by just participating. Now I ask you are the igbos better off in nigeria or outside of it after the Biafran war ? The answer which stares you in the face should tell who the failure his btw the country Nigeria and Ojukwu.

Ojukwu is better than all the military heads of state put together.... The war was only lost because Gowon in his sinful hatred ceased ALL food supplies to the east back and forth and even shot down planes carrying supplies....else....my brother no be this same story we go dey talk today....

Biafra made the most unprecedented technological advancement by any black nation which Nigeria as usual totally failed to build upon....

Nigeria overpowered Biafra simply through starvation.....man power and tactics wise? Dude Biafra was every mile better than what Nigeria had to offer.

That being said.....

You will never be as great as ojukwu...jf you like live 300 years....
Anytime the history of this country Is written... His name MUST appear at the very peak because he is the ONLY person to have stood against this EVIL Nigeria....for 3good years....

No OTHER ARMY GENERAL WILL BE EXONERATED BY HISTORY NEITHER WILL THERE BE A CIVILIAN PRESIDENT.....

Yes igbos got massacred....but look at Nigeria now and the progress the igbos have made..... Imagine....just imagine the billions of miles it would hav been if Biafra had succeeded....

No doubt there would have been interior issues....but that is the only true fight a Nigerian could have claimed to have fought for independence....

The 1960 independence was not a real fight...it landed right on nigeria's laps....and being clueless they blew it away....

Stop hating a dead legend....
Literature / My Journey Through Hell (short Story) by HolyPaul: 10:57am
I came back from work feeling famished. I dashed to my kitchen opened my fridge but there was nothing I could throw into my mouth instantly. All I could see was the rice I cooked yesterday, I brought it out quickly and was about to warm it when it dawned on me that my match sticks had finished. I checked my wrist watch it was 9pm, I ran out of my apartment and ran to my neighbour’s apartment. I knocked on Nnamdi’s door twice before he answered and came out.
“Good evening Aunty Caro”
“Good evening” I greeted back
” Nnamdi please can you help me with one match stick when I am through I will return”
He dashed to his room and came out with a match box stressing that I should return immediately I was through. I thanked him and rushed back to my apartment, I quickly lit my stove and placed my rice on it. As I was about returning it I remembered I had no more match sticks to use so I quickly collected some from Nnamdi’s and placed it in my match box. Then I went and returned the remaining to Nnamdi. I went back to my apartment and headed to my bedroom, I brought out a novel that I been reading and continued. It had been fifteen minutes but I was lost in the world of my Novel that I forgot what I had put on the stove. When I started perceiving smoke smell I quickly hurried to the kitchen, as I was about bringing the pot down the stove fell down also and before I could pick it up my novel fell on the floor. My novel was already in flames I quickly got water on pour on the rapidly increasing fire but it escalated the more. Before one could say “Jack prosper” the whole place was set ablaze.
I couldn’t ascertain where I was, but I was standing in a line before me was the most popular musician Michael Jackson. I quickly turned back but to my amazement a popular politician of the 90’s Gen Sani Abacha stood behind me with hands akimbo and was staring at me. I hastily turned my face back to avoid his gaze, I was trembling where I was I couldn’t comprehend where I was. Immediately I spoke out, “Where am I?”. There was no answer, the whole place was quiet and everyone was just staring at me. I freaked out and screamed
“Where am I?”
“Where are you” echoed a calm voice
I looked up and what I saw bewildered me, a man putting on white robes with a book on his hand his face shone like that of the sun, his whole body was radiating I couldn’t withstand the heat, I quickly bowed my head
“Who are you” I asked timidly
“Who am I?” He answered my question with a question again
“Are you God?” “What” Where did that question come from?
“I am not God and you are at the judgement throne”
“What!” I covered my mouth to avoid screaming
“Am I dead?” I asked to no one in particular
“Yes you are and you are here for judgement” He said opening the book in his hand which I assume to be the book of life
“So I am dead” I managed to say. I wasn’t afraid of death when I was on earth and neither will I be afraid of judgement now, I have lived a hood life, I helped the sick, I Have helped the poor, I prayed always, I will boast like St Paul that I have run the race and what awaits me now is the crown of glory. I was elated for the first time since I came here at least I will see God. I sighed a sigh of relief.
“Caroline David” The angel called out
“Yes” I answered with joy composing myself to be at my best
He then began
“Faithfulness A1, charity A1, Prayer A1, Studying the scriptures A1………” I was beaming with smiles already assured of my ticket to heaven. He continued
“Spirituality A1, forgiveness A1, Holiness F9” At the sound of the word F9, my system instantly came to a halt, I just managed to stutter
“Holiness F9? Lord I have been a righteous woman ever since I gave my life to Christ in 2003, I have been living the faith. Why then do you want to give me F9?” The angel just looked at me with pity shaking his head “You lived a righteous life Caroline, you did everything God wanted you to, why then did you break His heart?” Immediately a screen appeared before me, I saw myself collecting some match sticks from Nnamdi’s match box and then I realised what the angel was talking about.
“Nooooooooooooooooo” I screamed and immediately I knelt down rose my hands up determining to catch the robe of the angel
“please forgive me thy word says in the book of”
“It’s too late Caroline” came a loud voice from someone behind me. Turning back, I saw a man tied in chains, smoke emanating from his body, he looked wearied and tired but he couldn’t stop laughing
“Hahahahahahhahahahah” He went again trying to grab my hand, I shrugged off his hand turning back to the angel, I pleaded
“please sir don’t let him take me, thy word says in the book of Daniel 9 vs 9 The Lord God is merciful and forgiving, even though we have rebelled against him”
“Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahah” the man burst out louder again
“And you also forget that the bible says in Romans 6 vs 23 For the wages of sin is death” He said holding my hands firmly with his robust fist, I tried removing my hands but to no avail I looked up to the angel but there was no movement from him, He continued dragging me as I wailed for help but there was none, I was left to my fate The more we moved the hotter it becomes until we finally reached a bottomless pit, he pushed me down aggressively, I couldn’t help but scream at the increasing temperature of where I was going
“Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo” I shouted at the top of my voice and woke up from my nightmare. I was sweating profusely all over my body, the sofa on which I was laying on was wet already. I stood up immediately still frightened on what I had just experienced, I quickly ran to the kitchen, the smoke coming out choked my throat, I coughed numerously as I took my now black pot down, put off the stove and ran out of my apartment with Nnamdi’s matchbox just in case my dream wanted to come true in any second. I ran to Nnamdi’s apartment and knocked twice again
“ohhhhhhh who is that now, can’t you see it is late” he grunted but on seeing me his comportment changed
“Ehmmmm Nnamdi am sorry I took some of your match sticks without your knowledge, please forgive me” I said handing over the match sticks to him
“Aunty Caro, no problem at all but as you tell me now good pass, you fit use am” I thanked him and rushed back to my apartment. Remember no sin is too small or too big live your life so that there will be no trace of sin at the last day.

Family / Re: Why You Shouldn't Marry A Lady Raised By A Single Parent by LadyMercedes(f): 10:10am
CuteMorriz:
I am not saying ladies raised by single parents are all bad, you may get lucky finding some exceptional ladies raised by single mums. Evidently you seldom find single men raising a child but it's quite prevalent with the opposite sex.

A relation of mine was dating this lady and when the time came for the union to be made official, his parents advised him to discontinue becos after they had made enquiries and investigation they discovered the lady's mother left her husband many years ago over some frivolous reasons. Then I asked my uncle why did he side with family and not allow his son take the bold step then he said:

1. Women raised by single parent (mother) are usually strong willed hence may end up like their mother.

2. A lady who has seen no need for a father will be swift to end a union because she will have the courage to train her children alone afterall she was raised by a mum.

3. How will she get marital advice from her mum when things are tough and you know ladies often run to their mum when they need advice (remember the mother took the easy way out)

4. Sooner or later my son may become a bachelor again...the odd is high and is glaring..

5. A lady who have spent 21 years of her life without a father cannot be psychologically stable even if she appears to be.

6. Ladies raised by single parents did not experience the beautiful and ugly part of the union called marriage from her parents hence they don't have their parents as their role model.

7. Amin (as he fondly calls me) when the baton gets to you, look at the mother of your fiancèe closely because with time she will display those traits you observed in the mother......

Then I asked him what if the lady's father is dead and the mum decided to train her alone?...my uncle said we may also enquire about the untimely death of the father but "Amin that is a topic for another day"......


What a shallow school of thought!
