I will take that at face value.

This isn't about throwing away the baby with the bath water but more like cutting out a dead branch that once provided shade but has turned into a nuisance.

The heart&brain and pen&paper comparism?

The pen is useless without the paper and paper useless without the pen;

The brain must tell the heart to pump blood and the heart must pump blood for the brain to function.

The pen, paper, heart and brain are not compared to each other. They are seen as equally important even with their differences and none is seen as 'unequal' to each other.

Saying men and women are not equal does not infer male superiority is akin to saying there are no rabid feminists.

We both know that it is not true

James 2:14-26 New King James Version (NKJV)

14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him?

15 If a brother or sister is Unclad and destitute of daily food,

16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit?

17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without your [ a ] works, and I will show you my faith by my [ b ] works.

19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble!

20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is dead?


21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar?

22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made perfect?

23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” [ d ] And he was called the friend of God.

24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.


BOTTOM LINE- Faith can't save without a work. smiley

As in ah!!!!! I xpct all christians to know "Faith without work is deaaaad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" HAaaaaaaaa mst I spell it out to youuuu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Haaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!!!"

xcelsia:
I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion in this life, for some people, they have enough faith in divine healing which works for them. Different strokes for different folks, what works for Mr A can kill Mr B.

I combine prayers with medical help, some people don't believe in God and therefore don't believe in prayers. Regardless of what the case may be, I think people should be allowed to do whatever makes them happy.

If someone depends on divine healing only and sees it's not working, he/she should remember the part of the bible that says faith without works is dead. All you have to do is advice them and tell them the consequences of their refusal to seek medical help, if they refuse then you move on, life is too short.

Except the individual is a child in need of guidance, we need to let adults do whatever they want to do. If they only want to pray, seek only medical help or combine both, it's their business, life goes on.

We all have one life to live, focus on what makes you happy and please move on.
we share the same philosophy. I agree with someone for the first time 99 percent

Events / October 31st; Halloween Day. by kingDavidda1st(m): 8:58pm
Allhalloween, All Hallows' Eve or All Saints' Eve is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of all Hallows' Day. It initiates the triduum of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints(hallows),martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. Within Allhallowtide, the traditional focus of All Hallows' Eve revolves around the theme of using "humor and ridicule to confront the power of death. So how do what do you think is expected of anyone on this day?

Politics / How Boko Haram Captured Mubi by tbaba1234: 8:42pm
If this does not make your blood boil nothing else will. What is wrong with our military? A bunch of boys carrying AK47s and rocket launchers chased them out. They put up no resistance.

THOUSANDS FLEE MUBI, BADEH’S TOWN SACKED

Boko Haram militants tightened their grip on Mubi yesterday, forcing thousands of people to flee to other parts of Adamawa State.
The insurgents marched on the state’s second-largest town on Wednesday, driving in about 14 trucks.
Mubi, a commercial hub, is home to about 151,000 people, according to the 2006 census.

Witnesses said Boko Haram fighters yesterday went round some streets, proclaiming a new government based on Islamic law. They told people to cooperate with the new regime.

The militants also engaged in killings, looting and arson. They set the main market on fire, looted banks, and occupied the palace of the Emir of Mubi.

A resident said they broke into the home of the District Head of Mubi, Alhaji Yarima Bello, and beheaded his son, Ibrahim, a judiciary staff.
Mubi market association chairman, Alhaji Abdulkadir Musa, told Daily Trust by telephone that the assailants set fire to sections of the market and looted some shops.

“The boys set ablaze shops dealing in secondhand clothes and looted others,” he said.

Musa said fleeing residents were dispossessed of their cellphone SIM cards before being allowed to leave.

“They blocked the road at Buladega, urging people not to leave, that they were not going to be attacked. They did not stop anyone from leaving, but collected peoples’ phones and removed the SIM cards,” he said.

A witness told Daily Trust that a Boko Haram militant mocked residents over their reliance on security forces for protection, saying the insurgents seized the town without much resistance.

“They have been rather boastful,” the man said by telephone from outside Mubi.
“A commander bragged that very soon they are taking Yola with the ease they captured Mubi and that government purchased weapons at high cost only for them to seize the arms.”


He said most of low-ranking insurgents he saw are teenagers.
“I just left the town, these Boko Haram boys cannot withstand a determined battalion of trained soldiers,” he said.
“Most of them are carrying AK 47. Some use rocket launchers but they do not have the type of armoured vehicles our soldiers deployed recently.

Stranded in the bush
Scared residents have been trooping out of the town since Wednesday. Thousands trekked in different directions yesterday, fearing for their lives.
Many people have been stranded in the bush along Mubi-Maiha-Pella road, with others crossing into Cameroon through the border town of Dumo. The border is about 30 kilometres from Mubi.

“I passed by at least 6,000 people including the sick with bandages and plasters to their arms and legs, all of them trekking to Maiha, some left through Gyala,” a village chief told Daily Trust.

“Some were heading for Cameroon through Dumo; it is pathetic. Please let our leaders act.”

James Audu, a student, told Reuters news agency: “I saw many dead bodies in the bush and many injured people were lying helpless especially children and women. They killed a lecturer and his entire family. I saw them get shot (in Mubi).”

Stephen Adaji, also a student, said he had been hiding in the bush since mid-morning on Wednesday when the fighting began until a farmer helped him cross to a nearby village and he fled to the nearest city of Yola.

“We couldn’t sleep in the bush because of the fear Boko Haram may get us,” he said. “We were so scared, shooting was going on throughout the night.”

Daily Trust learnt that hundreds of soldiers who fled Mubi have converged at a town about 60 kilometers away, with dozens of vans and many armoured vehicles.

The soldiers manned check points in the area with fleeing residents complaining that the checkpoints delay them unnecessarily.

Many people who fled Mubi on Wednesday were yet to reach Yola by yesterday evening, as only those who left in their personal cars or were picked up by trucks conveying cattle made it.

Many children separated from their parents during the stampede that followed the Boko Haram attack on Wednesday.
A man at the NYSC Orientation camp in Girei said he separated from his 14-year old younger sister, his elder brother and sister in-law when an explosive narrowly missed their vehicle, forcing them to stop and ran in different directions.

“I was able to make contact with my brother who is still in the bush but none of us heard about the girl. I hope she did not run back to Mubi. My prayer is she escaped with other people to the bush,” he said.

Another displaced man, Abdullahi Alai, said he did not know the whereabouts of his two sons and wife after fleeing when Boko Haram struck.

He said he fled Mubi in his car around 6pm Wednesday and drove overnight to Yola. He said thousands of worn-out people made brief stop-overs at different villages to beg for food before resuming their trek towards the state capital.

Adamu Mohammed, who also fled to Yola yesterday, said hundreds of people trekked to Hong, over 50 kilometres away. “The entire road was covered by human beings, herding out to Hong, like a group of sheep,” he said. Our correspondent reported that the number of displaced people at the NYSC camp in Yola has surged as people from Mubi file in to register.

Executive Secretary of the state emergency agency ADSEMA, Haruna Furo, said hundreds of people were registered at the camp over the past 24 hours. The number of people at the camp stands at 6,800 as at yesterday.

A spokesman for the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) in the North-East, Abdul Ibrahim, told Reuters the agency had sent extra personnel to help manage people fleeing to Yola.

He said an attack on Uba just hours before the one on Mubi on Wednesday had forced 4,000 people who were in a displaced persons camp to vacate the camp and head for Yola.

Meanwhile, reports yesterday said the insurgents attacked Vimtim, the hometown of Chief of Defence Staff Air Chief Marshall Alex Badeh.

A former Mubi North Local Government chairman, John Kwale Vimtim, told the BBC Hausa radio: “They attacked Vimtim this morning (yesterday) and they went straight to the Chief of Defence Staff’s house. They did not kill or attack anybody in the house.

“There is nobody in the house at the time, because… all the people of Vimtim had already deserted the town” following the attack on Mubi.
Sources told Daily Trust that hundreds of fighters took over the village, located about 15 kilometres from Mubi.

Military sources said reinforcement was being sent to the state, through the Yola airport, to push back the attackers.

A local who fled Mubi yesterday said soldiers’ “withdrawal” from the area on Wednesday was a measure to give Air Force jets the freehand to engage the insurgents.

Politics / Blaise Compaoré Resigns as Burkina Faso’s President, and a General Assumes Power by wazobiaforu(m): 8:38pm
OUAGADOUGOU (Reuters) - The head of Burkina Faso's armed forces took power on Friday after President Blaise Compaore resigned amid mass protests against an attempt to extend his 27-year rule.

Compaore, a taciturn former soldier in office since a 1987 military coup, had sought to defy popular pressure for him to step down after a day of violent unrest on Thursday in which demonstrators stormed parliament and state television.

Impoverished Burkina Faso under Compaore had emerged as a key mediator in the turbulent Sahel and his departure robs the region of an elder statesman -- though one whose rights record was often criticized.

The landlocked nation is also a key ally in Western operations against al Qaeda-linked groups in West Africa and the crisis was being closely watched by the United States and France, which has a special forces base there.

Demonstrations erupted on Thursday when parliament had been due to vote on plans to change the constitution to allow Compaore to seek reelection next year. At least three people were shot dead and dozens wounded.

With hundreds of thousands packing the Place de la Nation in the capital Ouagadougou for a second day on Friday, and with no sign of international support -- particularly from former colonial power France -- Compaore bowed to public pressure.

"I declare a vacancy of power with a view to allowing a transition that should end with free and transparent elections in a maximum period of 90 days," Compaore said in a written statement read by presenters on local radio and television.

CONVOY HEADS TOWARDS BORDER

A heavily-armed convoy believed to be carrying the former president was seen traveling towards the southern town of Po near the border with Ghana, which is home to a large military base, diplomatic sources and local media said.

The departure of the 63-year-old -- who until recently was seen as one of West Africa's most invulnerable Big Men -- will send ripples across a region where several long-standing rulers are nearing the end of their terms amid rumbling discontent.

Crowds danced, cheered and blew whistles in Ouagadougou's dusty streets after Compaore's statement was broadcast.

"This is a sub-Saharan Spring and it must continue against all the presidents who are trying to hang on to power in Africa," said law student Lucien Trinnou, referring to the Arab Spring that toppled several long-term leaders.

Jubilation turned to frustration, however, as it became plain that military chief General Honore Traore -- a former military aide de campe of Compaore -- had taken over the reins of power.

Under Burkina Faso's constitution, the head of the National Assembly should take office if the president resigns but parliament was dissolved by Traore on Thursday under short-lived martial law, leaving a power vacuum into which he stepped.

It was the seventh time that a military officer had taken power since the country declared independence from France in 1960, when it was known as Upper Volta.

"Considering the urgency of saving the nation, I have decided to assume from today the responsibilities of head of state," said the bespectacled Traore, wearing military fatigues and a three-star general's cap, flanked by other officers.

"I make a solemn pledge to proceed without delay to consultations with all parties to start the process of returning to the constitutional order as soon as possible."

There was no immediate reaction from the leaders of the fragmented opposition to the announcement by Traore, regarded by many as a Compaore loyalist. He was named military chief in the wake of a failed 2011 uprising in which soldiers took part, with a mission to shake up the armed forces.

In the Place de la Nation, the epicenter of the demonstrations, many people called for a transition led by retired General Kouame Lougue, a popular former defense minister accused of trying to topple Compaore in 2004.

“The people have seized power and chosen its president. It is General Kouame Lougue. We don’t trust Honore Traore who was a lackey to Blaise Compaore,” said a demonstrator who identified himself as Souleyman. Others chanted "Lougue, Lougue!"

PRESIDENTIAL GUARD SPEAKS OUT

Adding to the uncertainty, Lieutenant Colonel Issaac Zida -- the presidential guard commander who had first announced Compaore's decision to resign -- read his own statement to the crowd at a military barracks surrounded by armed troops.

"A transitional body will be put in place in consultation with all stakeholders in the nation," he said, announcing the suspension of Burkina's 1991 constitution.

It was not immediately clear if this was a challenge to Traore's authority from within the presidential guard, the best-equipped and trained section of the armed forces and traditionally regarded as fiercely loyal to Compaore.

French President Francois Hollande, who had discreetly sought ways to usher Compaore into an international role when his term ended next year, welcomed the former president's resignation in a statement and called for quick elections.

A delegation from the African Union, the United Nations and regional West African bloc ECOWAS was due in Burkina Faso on Friday to hold talks with all sides. ECOWAS said on Thursday it would not accept any seizure of power by unconstitutional means.

The country was also of the last in Africa to retain diplomatic relations with Taiwan, and diplomats will closely watch for any change of foreign policy stance.

Compaore is often blamed for the death of former president Thomas Sankara -- his friend and former patron -- in his 1987 putsch. Sankara was a popular left-wing revolutionary, dubbed "Africa's Che Guevara", who changed the name of the country to Burkina Faso -- meaning 'Land of the Upright Men'.

The political turbulence drew a sanguine response from mining investors in Africa's fourth largest gold producer, including Endeavour Mining (EDV.TO), IamGold (IMG.TO) and Randgold Resources (RRS.L).

"We are hopeful that there will be some kind of peaceful transition," said Jim Wynn, vice president for finance and company secretary at Avocet (AVM.L), which operates a gold mine in the northeast. "It shouldn’t affect our operations unless it gets significantly worse and we hope that it won’t."


Get Up, Stand Up, Stand Up for your Right, Don't Give up the Fight .......

Good Evening once again, I posted on the 16th of this month to make people realised there would be an update from Tescom. On the 28th the chairman spoke and said he promised to make sure that there won't be any cross carpeting or mishandling of the result of candidates, he said that he close monitored the whole marking processes, He also made a serious point there by saying the death of one of their board members caused the delayed. He also said not until they finish the burial arrangement of their dead, they won't be able to send any message to us. He promised that the moment they are through, they would send us success messages. But the funniest part of it is, just a dead is holding us at ransome, how can the dead hold 2000 candidate at ransome?but I will say God is making a serious plan for my favour and yours in Tescom, they are making new strategies to open a new synergy for us successful candidates in such a way that we shall have access to cars and loans.

Kaduna Police Officer Arrested Over Alleged Gun-Running Commits ‘Suicide’ In Cell
There are several versions of the story surrounding his death with the police authorities saying he shot himself to death. Some other sources speculate he must have been gunned down in his cell.


DSP Nanbol Audu, the police officer in charge of the Kaduna State Police Command’s armaments who has arrested last week, was found dead in the early hours of today.
Audu was arrested for allegedly attempting to steal weapons from the armory on October 20.
There are several versions of the story surrounding his death with the police authorities saying he shot himself to death. Some other sources speculate he must have been gunned down in his cell.
One of his relatives, who called our New York office on the development, insisted that he was killed, pointing out that he could not have shot himself because he had been handcuffed since he was arrested.
“I will supply you photographs our family collected from the media in Kaduna this afternoon,” he explained. “He has been hand-cuffed throughout, how can hand-cuffed man shoot himself to death? Where did he get a gun in detention to carry out the act by killing himself?
“It is clear something is wrong and we will want to know the whole thing that happened and the truth, it is unfortunate and pathetic.”
All our efforts to reach the Kaduna State police commissioner by phone from New York failed as he was said to be busy.
Below is what police authorities said on DSP Nanbol Audu last week in Nigeria:
On 20th October,2014 at about 2230hours, the Command's Armament Officer, DSP Nanbol Audu came to the Armory with two unknown persons in a private vehicle, parked behind the Armory and loaded some firearms into the vehicles. Policemen on guard suspected foul play and immediately stopped the vehicle from leaving the premises.

Weapons Audu was accused of trying to stealSaharaReporters Media
"Upon interrogation, the State Armament Officer could not give satisfactory account of his action which led to his arrest and the two other occupants of the vehicle one Zingkur Joseph of Trade Centre Jos and Samuel Adamu of Kuru Jos-South Local Government Area of Plateau State, respectively. During search at the spot, 11 G3 Rifles already concealed under the vehicle seat were recovered.
“Further investigation revealed that, one of the two civilian suspects is a blacksmith who specialize in manufacturing locally made firearms. The two suspects came from Jos, Plateau State on arrangement to purchase the said firearms from the Armament Officer at the cost of N400,000."

Politics / Ten Longest Serving African President by pamcode(m): 7:22pm
Sourcr:http://africanleadership.co.uk/africas-10-longest-tenured-dictators/1. Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo,
Equatorial Guinea, 33 years, 3 months
Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has been
ruling the tiny, oil-rich West African nation
since overthrowing his uncle Marcias
in August, 1979, in a bloody palace coup.
And While Equatorial Guinea has one of the
world’s highest per capita incomes, it ranks
quite poorly on the U.N. Human Development
Index with the majority of the population
lacking basic necessities like clean drinking
water.
2. Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, Angola, 33
years, 2 months
Seizing power after the natural death of his
predecessor, Jose Eduardo Dos Santos lags
just one month behind Obiang, and he
comes with an equally unsavory human
rights record. According the U.S. Agency for
International Development (USAID), for
instance, Angola is sub-Saharan Africa’s
second-largest oil producer and the
seventh-largest supplier to the U.S.. The
country is also the world’s fourth-largest
producer of rough diamonds. Yet despite
these plentiful resources, the people of
Angola not directly related to the president
remain desperately poor with 68 percent of
the population living below the poverty line
and life expectancy topping out at 41 years

3. Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe,
33 years, 7 months
Mugabe has been running Zimbabwe since
the country gained independence in 1980 –
first as prime minister and then from 1987
as president. Despite his age -nearly 90 –
Mugabe has vowed he will not step down
from his post.
President Paul Biya
4. Paul Biya, Cameroon, 31 years
Cameroon’s president took over from
President Ahmadou Ahidjo in November
1982 and has been in power of the oil-rich
nation in Central Africa ever since.

5. Denis Sassou Nguesso, Republic of the
Congo, 29 years, 9 months
If he hadn’t lost control of the Congo for five
years in 1992, Sassou Nguesso would be at
the very top of this list. He first seized power
of the country in a February 1979 coup, but
lost the country’s first multi-party elections
in 1992. After a 1997 civil war, however, he
was back in control and was re-elected in
2004 for another seven-year term.
King_of_Swaziland
6. King Mswati III, Swaziland, 28 years, 7
months
Sub-Saharan Africa’s last absolute monarch
has been ruling his landlocked country since
he was crowed in April 1986 at the age of
18 – a. At the time he was the world’s
youngest ruling monarch.
Presidents Kenyatta (Kenya), Museveni (Uganda) and-Kagame (Rwanda)
7. Yoweri Museveni, Uganda, 27 years, 11
months
Yoweri Museveni seized Kampala in January
1986 following a five-year guerrilla war and
declared himself Uganda’s president. Shortly
after taking power he banned multiparty
politics, although he re-introduced the
system again in 1996. Not that it particularly
mattered, as Museveni won a fourth term in
office in 2011 despite third-time opponent
Kizza Besigye’s cries of foul play.

8. Blaise Compaoré, Burkina
Faso, 26 years, 1 month
Blaise Campaore has been running Burkina
Faso since deposing predecessor Thomas
Sankara in an October 1987 coup. Since
then he has been winning “landslide
victories” (contested by the opposition) in
the presidential polls – taking 80 percent of
the vote in 2010. And although a law in
Burkino Faso was passed in 2005
prohibiting presidents from serving more
than two terms, Campoare doesn’t have to
abide by it as his country’s constitutional
court ruled it could not be applied
retroactively.

9. Omar Hassan al-Bashir, Sudan, 24 years, 5
months
In June 1989, Al-Bashir overthrew the
democratically elected civilian government
and appointed himself president in a
bloodless coup. Since he took office his
country has been in a state of civil war with
more than 1 million reported dead. In March
2009, the International Criminal Court in the
Hague issued an arrest warrant for Al-Bashir
– a first for a sitting head of state – for
instigating crimes against humanity.

10. Idriss Déby Itno, Chad, 22
years 11 months
Déby seized control of Chad during a
rebellion against then-President Hissène
Habré in December 1990 and has since
managed to survive a number of attempts to
overthrow him

legendsilver:
This is not all about Goodluck or buhari, neither is it about pdp or apc. Its about our brothers and sisters living in those regions that had been flooded with innocent bloods. I think its time we face the music and dance straight to its rhythm or watch these blood sucking murderers kill our once precious country called Nigeria.

Let's come together from all Geo-political zones with oneness and fight this madness that is Molesting our precious country apart.

You spoke well and I admire you for that but this is my concern:

How many times are we going to fight? We've been doing this since 1945 and in 1967 the bottom fell out, Gowon patched the tire and told everyone to get in the bus or....... folks jumped in because after all the 'vile bearded Ojukwu' had been silenced so it should be a smooth sail - what a heck let's jump in they said.

Barely 12 years after they jumped in One-Nigeria-bus Maitasine shattered the smooth sail, but this time the Dan Fodios are not in talking-mood so while folks were expecting to hear:
please can someone move this bus....its getting dark and it's scary out here.

Arewas angrily looked Nigerians in the eye and signaled all and sundry to move or be moved. This time is different said Arewa. No more sweet-talk about comradery or one nation, it is going to be Arewa and Arewa only. You had your chance to abort but chose to roll so roll you must and this time its by Arewa rules, so jump in infidel or you're dead.

As usual non-hausa/Fulani Nigerians said:
oh its ok, its a national problem, 'they' want to tear us apart but we won't let them, its CIA, its MI5, its KGB, its Mossad, 'they' paid our children to take up arms against 'our dear' country. They want our oil, they want to steal our resources, they're afraid of us because we're a 'great' country.

Story, story, and story! Every thing but the truth.

While the south was busy parroting lies on behalf of Arewa, Arewa henchmen and top-dogs were in Kano, Kaduna, and sokoto rocking their easy-chairs with 50 year old wines and smirking off - we gat them! They said they were educated, who's educated now - fools!

As if that was not enough they let loose their boys in khaki and, oh boy! Coup after coup, promise after promise, murder after murder, and guess what? most of the murders were exclusively targeted at southern intellectuals - from Dele Giwa to MKO. Arewa never knew the difference provided you were from Middle Belt down to Okrika - anything that raised its mouth against born-to-rule was gonna be dam*d - whatcha you gon do...nothing, so shut the helll up and remain in the bus, or do you want the black-goggled Abacha to know you personally?
No sir!
Ok then, remain in the bus like I said and we'll be juuust fineee.
Thank you sir!
That's my boy!

Fast forward to 2002, and by that I mean pretend like there was no carnage from the time Abacha ate the mythical apple to the time Yerima imposed sharia on all us. Even with that Arewa's box of violence from Abacha's sunset through 2002 left blank and unshaded, it still looks like we haven't caught a break. And why should we? I mean think about it - Southern Nigerians chose to ride along 10 million Almajiris in one tiny bus and yet they expect its going to be a smoothy. No, its going to be hell and we should know better. If that's still not clear to us now maybe we need to go back and read Aliyu Gwazo's 'ride or die' message to supposedly educated Nigerians.

Today where are we? We don't even know. We can't tell what happened to us. We've come to love and excuse the murderers instead of facing the truth which is - cut the murderers loose so they can have their own country. With our 'uncommon common sense' and with no khaki man staring us in the face in intimidation we still want to keep the ride or die system going. We still talk about how CIA, MI5, and Mossad are trying to break us using Boko Haram. I guess Russia should be grateful to god for breaking soviet union else we would have included KGB in the list of Nigeria's haters. What a people!

Today Gombe is up in smoke and our people are still declaring, yet again, that we must stay united and defeat these monsters. They say it as if our fathers haven't been saying the same garbage since 1945. To them what's happening today is about today, they believe it has little or no connection to our past hence their stay-united mantra. Perhaps they forgot that one true unity is only achievable in death - only the dead are united.

My people, Southern and Middle Belt people, why pursue what we can't kill? Why ask for the impossible? Why insist on one nation with a people who're in it for Jihad while we're in it for the nation? Is this love or lost?

I have no doubt that in our hearts we wish for the bombing and extremism in the North to stop, but will it? If we know the root-cause of endless murder and bloodshed in the north won't go away what's stopping us from walking?

What's more noble and responsible - to ride and die or to leave and live?
May God us when we're ready.
Politics / Ten Longest Serving Presidents In Africa by pamcode(m): 7:07pm
1. Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo,
Equatorial Guinea, 33 years, 3 months
Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo has been
ruling the tiny, oil-rich West African nation
since overthrowing his uncle Marcias
in August, 1979, in a bloody palace coup.
And While Equatorial Guinea has one of the
world’s highest per capita incomes, it ranks
quite poorly on the U.N. Human Development
Index with the majority of the population
lacking basic necessities like clean drinking
water.
2. Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, Angola, 33
years, 2 months
Seizing power after the natural death of his
predecessor, Jose Eduardo Dos Santos lags
just one month behind Obiang, and he
comes with an equally unsavory human
rights record. According the U.S. Agency for
International Development (USAID), for
instance, Angola is sub-Saharan Africa’s
second-largest oil producer and the
seventh-largest supplier to the U.S.. The
country is also the world’s fourth-largest
producer of rough diamonds. Yet despite
these plentiful resources, the people of
Angola not directly related to the president
remain desperately poor with 68 percent of
the population living below the poverty line
and life expectancy topping out at 41 years
3. Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe,
33 years, 7 months
Mugabe has been running Zimbabwe since
the country gained independence in 1980 –
first as prime minister and then from 1987
as president. Despite his age -nearly 90 –
Mugabe has vowed he will not step down
from his post.
4. Paul Biya, Cameroon, 31 years
Cameroon’s president took over from
President Ahmadou Ahidjo in November
1982 and has been in power of the oil-rich

Even my system find it hard to connect to my phone. That's why am using my phone instead of laptop to type. So I understand.

It is a mark of humility to state the level of confidence you cast in your belief. When something is not exactly clear, its reasonable not to be dogmatic. Compare 2Cor. 12:2, 3.

Well, I hope an elder doesn't hear you say that because you might just find yourself before the judicial committee in your Kingdom Hall grin Anyway, you're correct, one isn't meant to hold on to a believe "that isn't exactly clear" dogmatically even if we have to ". . .appreciate . . . and respond to the directions of the "slave" as we would to the voice of God. . ." (Watchtower 1957 Jun 15 p.370). I applaud your honesty; not many JWs do that.

As to why 1918 was spoken of, that article shows why - the parallel between what happened in the first century and what is to happen among the anointed. Read more from there.

Bro, what makes you think I haven't read everything written in the article before raising this question? There was no "parallel" between 1914 and 1918, in fact, the only reason the Watchtower gave was that it was "around" Christ's "presence" but as to how they arrived at 1918, they stated nothing.



Yes it is talking about resurrection, but not defining resurrection. Your previous stand was on definition, which I faulted.

Sorry to say bro, this is nonsense (no offense at all), if he was talking "about" resurrection, he was actually talking of how it would happen; i.e. ". . .all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment." there is no ambiguity in this statement; he talked "about" it; he defined it.

Yes, no one man will see that resurrection on course, but we will know it is happening because the scriptures supports spiritual resurrection.

Proof please? Ha! You love inventions, don't you? I'd appreciate it if you gave me some citations.

Even Christendom believes that there saints have gone to heaven, even though there human flesh are here with us. You maybe among those who subscribe to that belief right? If no, then you believe that no resurrection has occurred at all. That makes you stand funny.

So, I what do you believe sir?

Now you're beginning to shoot yourself on the foot. "Christendom" (or whatever you call them)– some of them; the one you refer to– profess a belief in separation of spirit and/or soul from body after death. This allows for them to claim that the dead body is in the grave while their "spirit" is in heaven. Moreover, they don't call it resurrection but afterlife.

Furthermore, it appears that you are taking the step of truthislight in attempting to derail the thread from "Question for JWs" to "Personal beliefs of the OP" which is uncalled for. What I believe or don't believe does not matter here; what matters is the fact and I'm asking JWs to produce an answer to flaws in their doctrine.



That is how it should be, not in every detail, because Jesus' case was different from the rest of the anointed.

First - Jesus body was to be sacrificed for our sake. This is not required of all the anointed.

Second - he was nailed to the stake. This is not a requirement for all.

Third - he went to heaven to finish the sacrifice, to the heavenly Most Holy.

Jesus offered his blood for us, and after which his fleshly body would be disposed of outside the gate as was done to the bulls in the law covenant. The flesh of the bulls were "burned outside the camp". Compare Heb 13:11-13

Moses' case shows that God can dispose of a body so that no human can ever see where it is.

So Jesus' death was the reality of the shadow of what was done in the law, as such, his death cant picture that of the anointed in every detail.

Jesus came to "offer" his body according to the Bible simply means that he came to die; to be "obedient unto death" (Php 2:6-9). If the flesh offering was the same as that of the burnt offering, then was it eaten as it ought to be? No.

According to the Bible, Jesus simply suffered for man's sake and resurrected for man to see life after death.

Furthermore, the sacrifices was on the cross– or stake as you may prefer– not in the grave. Jesus' burial, according to the Bible, was just a picture of a dead human being buried and his resurrection, according to the Bible, is a record of resurrection into life everlasting, thus, He, being the first fruit, became a prototype to the others who follow suit.


And you responded without using any scripture too.

I wasn't trying to talk "symbolic" or interpret "figuratives" but I was dealing with semantics here. Don't use this to save face brother, the word "memorial tomb" in Greek usage refers to a grave with monuments, there are thousands of passages in the Bible that prove that: Mark 5:5; Luke 8:27; Luke 23:53; Luke 24:1; Acts 2:29; Acts 7:16, e.t.c.


You must admit that when I was speaking of "memorial tomb" as it relates to the original language, quoting a scripture would be pointless, because the word itself its derived from a scripture and the issue I wish to buttress is what the original word meant.

The definition is on Strong No 3419. Though the definition is almost the same thing.

And these conveys the sense of "remembrance" - cenotaph. A monument is meant to remember someone.

In short, just as you said above, which is my point, that the word conveys the sense of remembrance, not just a tomb. It carries a greater idea of permanence than grave (taphos).

It is not all righteous that are buried in a tomb, some die in different situation and places.

inscriptions of the tombs of israelites' origin are rare, and when found, it contains only a name. The outstanding king of th Jews dkdnt leave any magnificent monument for themselves.

Don't distort my comment bro. I said that the word "mnéma" was coined from the word "mnaomai" which according to Thayer's Greek Lexicon means to: ". . . to recall (bring to mind); remember, recollect. . ." which of course depicts a situation where one needs to be reminded by the monument in order to prevent a case whereby the deceased is forgotten: That is to say, when the person is forgotten, that monument REMIND him, it's a blasphemy to associate such with an all-knowing God.

Therefore, when the bible says all those in the memorial tomb, or monument, it seems the jews have in mind God remembering them after demise.

Since these monuments are not found, and many righteous ones die in different conditions and places with many not having a monument, it is logical to conclude that "all those in the memorial tomb" mentioned by Jesus are those in God's own memory for resurrection. Not a literal grave you see with your eyes. That's the point. Doesnt this point make sense to you?

As such, no need to go searching for a tomb and exhuming the bodies for verification.

That makes absolutely no sense. That's nothing but wishful thinking. The Bible even associates the mnéma (memorial tomb) with Abraham (Acts 7:16) and talks of nothing else but a burial place; stop putting words into your God's mouth. If the Jews merely meant "the mind" the word "tomb" won't come into place, never!

No, it is not blasphemy. God has a figurative book of remembrance. Read Mal 3:16. If you read the scriptures quoted in my earlier reply, you wouldnt say that.

This is what I said (which you were responding to): <<<This is just a regurgitation of pre-programmed teachings from the Watchtower and I'm not surprised you didn't even use any Scripture to back up the notion of your memory-card version of God.

Here is what Memorial Tomb in the Greek ACTUALLY conveys:

From Strong's Concordance #3418, mnéma actual means: a tomb or a monument, not a memory card in God.

The word "mnéma" is gotten from the root-word "mnaomai" which is used to describe tomb-stones and plaques the REMIND or make one conscious, mindful or remember a thing of the past. In fact, it is used in the of a memory ". . .to be recalled or to return to one's mind. . ." (based on Thayer's and Smith's Bible Dictionary) which is blasphemy to God who is meant to know all things.

Furthermore, there is absolutely no proof of this in the Bible where one is stored in God's memorial tomb; it's just another creative, unscriptural invention in the Bible.>>>


@bolded was my emphasis. The Book of Remembrance in Malachi doesn't refer to a book that God turns to whenever he forgets something in order to "remember" that thing (this goes completely against Omniscience). The Book of Remembrance
surely refers the Book– as with the Book of the Lamb– refers to a sort of "register" for those who fear God. However, in the case of "returning a specific detail back to God's memory" that's a blasphemy.

The scriptures say that the glory of the earthly bodies is a different sort from that of the heavenly bodies. 1cor. 15:40. There is no way that fleshly body can ascend heaven. No way! Nor is blood found there. Eyes can see flesh, but those going to heaven are not seen by the physical eyes because they will be spirits that hasn't. Jesus case is that he materialized human bodies. But he was a spirit as 1Pet 3:18 says.

That article quoted that 1cor. 15. verse 38 says that God gives it body at He pleases. You know there are different bodies, eg earthly and heavenly bodies.

This, again, doesn't relate to what is asked on the OP. Like I said: whether it is spiritual or physical, that's not the question asked. Paul never talked of a body remaining in the grave while the spiritual body goes to heaven. rather, Paul said that it shall be TRANSFORMED (v.51) thus, the body is turned into a physical one. If the body is found in the grave, it wasn't transformed; it wasn't resurrected. Simple

I asked you, when you plant your seed, do you tell it the kind of body it carries?

Answered above

God has no use of that fleshly body. He gives each there own bodies. With his record of that person in His book, he restore that one's identity. Only his record survives, not immaterial "part'' of him.[quote]

Off again. I re-quote:
Paul said that it shall be TRANSFORMED (v.51) thus, the body is turned into a physical one. If the body is found in the grave, it wasn't transformed; it wasn't resurrected.

[quote]When someone sins, he is wiped out of God's book. Read Exod 32:33 please read these scriptures I quote.

So the record we make know is being noted. See also Psalm 69:28.

Answered above.


I ve shown above why the empty tomb is your standard.

Jesus' death and resurrection cant picture that of the anointed in every detail. I ve shown this too.

Flesh and blood is of no use to God. In short, flesh is a form of body made for the earth, not heaven. That was Paul's argument.



You that died is a flesh, bone, black or white colored, literal eyes, mouth, manhood and womanhood. Is this the exact person that will go to heaven?

In heaven, there is neither male or female. So, will God raise that EXACT person as you theorize?

Fish cant live on land, neither will a man go and live on water. These places need different sort of bodies. So is heavenly life. It requires an entirely different form of body. That's Paul's argument. You can take what the bible says or keep conforting yourself with self-made standards for resurrection. Its your call.



Yes, but Paul's letter is directed to the anointed. So its logical that his message is with the heavenly class in mind.

The empty tomb is your standard for resurrection, not scriptural. Thats for you to worry about, not the GB.

Whats your religion. These will atleast help in opening your eyes to the folly of your argument.


Now here is a quotation describing resurrection INTO HEAVEN fro Revelation 11:3-end:

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.


And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

Need I say more? These men weren't on earth as dead bodies while they were in heaven as spiritual beings, they left their place of death.... So I ask again, are the graves of these men empty
