Politics / Re: Jonathan Arrives Site Of Collapsed Synagogue Church Building by 9jaRonin: 11:01am
johnpaulbuddy: so if it was only nigerians that were involved,he won't show up or what??
Its part of the unwritten rules of international diplomacy. If the number of casualties involved consisted of wholly indigenous people then it can be handled however the authorities deem fit.
But 84 dead South Africans in Lagos can trigger a diplomatic spat which should be avoided at all cost.....even though thousands die in the North East everyday.

Religion / Re: Spirit, Soul, Body, And Life After Death by enigmaotr(m): 9:50am
Was Abel's blood literally crying out to God from the ground? Absolutely not. Using symbolism, God was illustrating to Cain that He was aware of what Cain had done. The dead saints under the altar in John's vision are also not literally crying out to God. The dead know nothing, as Ecclesiastes 9:5 confirms.
If the people of this world believe in being able to communicate with "familiar spirits" and that the dead never really die, then they are prepping themselves up for accepting Satan's great lying signs, powers, and wonders. Do not fall prey to this false doctrine. Satan, The Great Deceiver, wants the same thing for you that he wanted for Eve when he lied to her with the immortal soul belief in the beginning - Death.
How does God feel about the teaching that the dead are alive and being able to communicate with the dead?
Leviticus 20:27 ...'A man or a woman who is a medium, or who has familiar spirits, shall surely be put to death; they shall stone them with stones. Their blood shall be upon them.'
When Saul, king of Israel, consulted a medium - how did God react?
1 Samuel 28:5-8,11,13 ...'When Saul saw the army of the Philistines, he was afraid, and his heart trembled greatly. And when Saul inquired of the LORD, the LORD did not answer him, either by dreams or by Urim or by the prophets. Then Saul said to his servants, "Find me a woman who is a medium, that I may go to her and inquire of her." And his servants said to him, "In fact, there is a woman who is a medium at En Dor." And they came to the woman by night. And he said, "Please conduct a seance for me, and bring up for me the one I shall name to you." Then the woman said, "Whom shall I bring up for you?" And he said, "Bring up Samuel for me." And the king said to her, "Do not be afraid. What did you see?" And the woman said to Saul, "I sawa spiritascending out of the earth.'
Saul didn't have faith in God, and feared the army of Philistines, so he decided to consult a medium to attempt to "speak to Samuel". However, the dead know nothing and Saul knew he was forbidden to do this. The Hebrew word for spirit used here iselohiym, which does not mean breath of life but either stands for God or angels. We know that God nor His angels in Heaven would advocate meeting with Saul in this manner, transforming themselves into the visual perception of another person. So what was this spirit/angel?A demon. It is Satan's craft to work with deceptions like this and to take away peoples' faith in God. And what was God's judgment on Saul for doing this?:
1 Samuel 31:3-6 ...'The battle became fierce against Saul. The archers hit him, and he was severely wounded by the archers. Then Saul said to his armorbearer, "Draw your sword, and thrust me through with it, lest these uncircumcised men come and thrust me through and abuse me." But his armorbearer would not, for he was greatly afraid. Therefore Saul took a sword and fell on it. And when his armorbearer saw that Saul was dead, he also fell on his sword, and died with him. So Saul, his three sons, his armorbearer, and all his men died together that same day.'
Saul didn't die quickly, though. When David received the report of what happened to Saul, this is what he found out ...
2 Samuel 1:6-10 ...'Then the young man who told him said, "As I happened by chance to be on Mount Gilboa, there was Saul, leaning on his spear; and indeed the chariots and horsemen followed hard after him. Now when he looked behind him, he saw me and called to me. And I answered, 'Here I am.'' And he said to me, 'Who are you?' So I answered him, 'I am an Amalekite.' He said to me again, 'Please stand over me and kill me, for anguish has come upon me, but my life still remains in me.' So I stood over him and killed him, because I was sure that he could not live after he had fallen. And I took the crown that was on his head and the bracelet that was on his arm, and have brought them here to my lord.'
A very tragic end this was for Saul, indeed. This should be a dire warning to us. God does NOT feel keen about people attempting to communicate with the dead in ANY way whatsoever.

The Immortal Soul Doctrine
Already we see the scriptures greatly contradicting what is taught today. What is typically preached today is that when a person dies, they immediately go straight to their everlasting dwelling - Heaven or "hell" (misinterpreted from the lake of fire). Based on what we've already learned here, that theory doesn't add up very well with scripture, now does it?
For quite some time, professing Christians have been instructed to believe that all people are judged when they die, and immediately go "up" or "down". Is this Biblically sound though?
Question: What would be the point of the Great White Throne Judgment at the very end if all people have already been judged?
Do the scriptures actually say that all righteous people instantly "go to Heaven" when they die?
John 5:28,29 ...'Do not marvel at this; for the hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth-those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of condemnation.'
Acts 2:29,34 ...'Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, thathe is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day ... ForDavid didnotascend into the heavens.'
Job 14:10-12 ...'But man dies and is laid away; Indeed he breathes his last Andwhere is he? As water disappears from the sea, And a river becomes parched and dries up, Soman lies down and DOES NOT rise. Till the heavens are no more, They will not awake Nor be roused from their sleep.'
1 Corinthians 15:51,52 ...'Behold, I tell you a mystery:We shall not allsleep, but we shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye,AT THE LAST TRUMPET. For the trumpet will sound, andthe dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.'
Again, the KJV uses "man giveth up the ghost" in Job 14:10 instead of "he breathes his last", showing they always mean the same thing. These above scriptures are very plain and clear, my friends. There is no instant resurrection or floating away to heaven at death. Man sleeps at death, awaiting his resurrection at the very end - some to everlasting life and some to everlasting contempt (death). Every single scripture in the Holy Bible resonates this truth in one accord.
But what about the scripture that says "To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord"?? Well, let's look into that highly discussed scripture and see if it ACTUALLY even says that at all.
Also remember, if all of the other scriptures in the Bible portray one unified message on a topic, then we need not stumble upon one scripture but should study that scripture with prayer and diligence.
2 Corinthians 5:6-8 ...'So we are always confident, knowing thatwhile we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord. For we walk by faith, not by sight. We are confident, yes,well pleased ratherto be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.'
Something MUCH different is said here than is commonly believed. Paul does NOT say that when a person dies, they immediately go to be with the Lord. Look closely - he says that while we are at home (on this earth) in the body, we are absent from the Lord. Is Paul contradicting his MANY other scriptures that proclaim the resurrection at the end? Of course not. When we die, our bodies go into the ground. Are our bodies still on the earth after we die? YES! Paul is merely saying that he would much RATHER be away from this earthly body and have his NEW incorruptible body at the resurrection! Notice what he says just verses earlier:
verses 2-4 ...'For in this wegroan,earnestly desiring to be clothed with our habitationwhich is from heaven, if indeed, having been clothed, we shall not be found Unclad. For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, but further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.'
Do you see this amazing truth?! Paul says we groan, not because of wishing to die, but because we desire to have our heavenly bodies and not these earthly bodies any longer. When do we receive our heavenly bodies?? At the resurrection when Jesus returns to gather the elect!
Religion / Re: Recording Of TB Joshua Talking To Journalists (Audio) by simplex2: 9:48am
Devil advocates! You guys are here trying to defend the indefensible. From what I heard when I listened to the audio, he specifically tried to direct the journalist on what to write and what not to write!

1:55 - I will be very happy if you will help me correct some of the things that have been (said on the papers)

From 2:24, they were trying to squeze out an official statement from him, he insists that they shouldn't write about those that died, but about the survivors.

2:46: why can't you talk of those who recovered -
He was specifically suggesting to them what to write. With the believe that he who pays the piper, dictates the tune.

They even suggests he make an official statement to commiserate with the family of the dead but he refused, insisting that he has to speak like a man of God! He specifically told them that, and said his church members won't feel good hearing a man of god talk about death! What sort of trash is this? He is more concerned with his status than with the families of those that lost their loved ones?

Anyone defending this show of shame should be ashamed of his morality and education!

This 'Napoleon is always right' attitude won't make us any better society.

Religion / Spirit, Soul, Body, And Life After Death by enigmaotr(m): 9:47am
The Modern Christian Theory
What is mostly taught today is that God created man and placed a spirit "being" inside of him. Additionally, it is taught that man also has a "soul" floating around inside of him, which will eventually "float" off to heaven or "hell".
Whoa, let's make an immediate STOP right there!
There is already a major problem with this theory. If most believe that we have a "spirit" inside of us, then why is it believed that we also have a "soul" too? Are we to believe the spirit and soul are the same thing? Are there TWO beings trapped inside of us?
Before we go further, we must biblically identify what these things are so that we can clear this all up.
.
What is Man Exactly? How Was he Created by God?
Genesis 2:7 (NKJV)...'And the LORD God formed man of thedust of the ground, and breathed into hisnostrils thebreath of life; and manbecamea living being.'
Genesis 2:7 (KJV) ...'And the LORD God formed man of thedust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils thebreath of life; and manbecamea living soul.'
As we can see here, a "living being" and a "living soul" are the same exact thing. Also, in this very verse is the entire equation of life. And did you notice the word "became", instead of "was given"? VERY important point! So let's look at the equation of life:
Dust of the ground (Body) + The breath of life (Spirit) = A living being (Soul/Man)
Now doesn't that make a lot of sense? The problem is that this Bible truth already conflicts with the modern theory that a person has aSEPARATE, IMMORTALspirit/or soul/or both inside of him. We see that man before coming to life was merely dust of the ground - a breathless, lifeless body. It was the breath of life from God that brought Adam to life,makinghim a living soul. That's the important point to gain from this. Adam wasn't "GIVEN" a soul. AdamBECAMEa living soul with the breath (Spirit) of God inside of him.
Breath of Life
To understand this truth more, let's cover some more scripture to show what happens when a person dies in this life.
Ecclesiastes 12:7 ...'Then the dust will return to the earth as it was, And the spirit will return to God who gave it.'
An amazing connection is made here. Before we saw that the breath of life was added to dust of the ground to create man. Now we see that when a person dies, the dust returns to the ground and "the spirit" returns to God.
The scripture says that the spirit and the breath of life are the same thing!
This may sound abstract or different to you, but the scriptural meaning is clear, and we'll check out a few more scriptures just to re-emphasize this truth.
James 2:26 ...'For as the bodywithout the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.'
We already know that it is the breath of life from God that keeps our bodies alive, and yet again we see that the spirit and the breath of life are the same thing.
Pay close attention to the amazing truth uncovered in this following scripture from the King James Version and the New King James Version:
Job 27:3,4,8 (NKJV) ...'As long as my breath is in me, And thebreath of Godin my nostrils, My lips will not speak wickedness, Nor my tongue utter deceit. For what is the hope of the hypocrite, Though he may gain much, If God takes away hislife?'
Job 27:3,4,8 (KJV) ...'All the while my breath is in me, and thespirit of Godis in my nostrils; My lips shall not speak wickedness, nor my tongue utter deceit. For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God taketh away hissoul?'
Yet again, the scriptures are profoundly consistent. We can see the clear connection from the NKJV and the KJV that "the breath of God" = spirit of God; and "life" = soul. Without a doubt, we know that Job isn't literally saying that "a spirit" (in the context believed today, ie, a separate human spirit) resided in Job's nostrils. But thatthe breath of Godwas in his nostrils. And THAT is what gives man life and makes him a "living soul".
Question: What spirit is it that we see returning to God when a person dies?
Answer: The Breath of God!
What about a soul? Well, we showed above more than once that a soul simply means a LIVING being. This brings us to another obvious question: Can a soul die?
Revelation 16:3 ...'And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and everyliving souldiedin the sea.'... The NKJV says "living creature".
Ezekiel 18:20 ...'Thesoulwho sinsshall die.'
Matthew 10:28 ...'And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able todestroy both soul and bodyin hell.'
Jesus tells us that man is only able to destroy your body. That matters little for eternity because Jesus is able to resurrect a dead body by giving you the breath of life again and transform that body into an incorruptible body. However, Jesus says that God is able toFULLY extinguishyour life by destroying both body and soul, blotting a person out for all of eternity.

Sports / Re: Babayaro Makes Fresh Case For Iheanacho’s Inclusion In Super Eagles by Pedagogue: 9:33am
Keshi has performed creditably well as Super Eagles' Coach.

Before his appointment, our boys were far from Super. Winning the AFCON and getting to the Second Round stage of the World Cup are to his eternal credits...
But wait a minute,what happened after the nations cup? Keshi RESIGNED.What happened after the World Cup? Keshi RESIGNED!!!
To 'resign' means to 'LEAVE'.
Thus, Keshi's heart effectively left his position as d Super Eagles Coach after the Nations Cup. You don't believe?Recall that his resignation after the World Cup was principally because of the juicy contracts he thought he would get...But alas, NONE came his way!!! He had to quickly DENY that he 'concretely' resigned!!!He had no option but to settle for what was available- Super Eagles job!

Although this thread is not about Keshi, the truth is,the future of IHEANACHO & other budding stars depends heavily on who is in the saddle. Therefore, permit to state that:

1. We have a coach that selects players based on his personal sentiments; he does not care if the collective will of Nigerians is sacrificed for his EGO.
2. Keshi is not a good manager of men. A coach that has problems with several players is not a fantastic coach; it is v ironical that Keshi that now 'believes' so much in discipline was highly indisciplined in his playing days.
3. A thorough analysis of all our games after the Nations Cup will reveal that our players are no longer playing for him. Our games against Congo & S/Africa are clear pointers.
4. Keshi lost the script the moment he allowed the victory at AFCON to get to his head. His ego has tripled since then. He now expects players to kowtow to him.
5. Introducing the likes of Iheanacho will definitely unsettle the 'big boys' in d National team- especially MIKEL ObI. Keshi does not want that.
6. If Keshi had to be forced by the collective shouts by soccer mad Nigerians to invite Osaze (who was our best player at the world cup), IHEANACHO may perhaps never play for d Super Eagles as long as he's our gaffer.

Believe me, Keshi is still our coach cos he has has not received any better offer. His passion for our team is clearly dead. Someone needs to start from where Keshi has stopped.

Literature / Re: Changed by JigsawKillah(m): 9:27am
Schemer thought he had successfully and completely dodged the police and was about to sing a song of victory when he came face to face with yet another patrol team that had mounted checkpoints in both lanes of the road.
He would have run into them or fired at them if only he had sophisticated weapons in his possession. He was caught unawares when they immediately opened fire on him the moment they had clear shots. The bullets further damaged the car Double E had done minor damage to. Schemer swerved and turned the car and ran into a nearby street.



The Patrol team immediately called Double E and let him in on the newest development and he dispatched more troops, begging members of other divisions to come to his aid.


Schemer called his Boss and told him about his predicament, asking if he can possibly get the police off his tail. When he got the negative reply, he braced himself up for what might probably be his most difficult test so far.



#################################################


John stormed into his father's house shouting on top of his voice. He was told his father wasn't around, and was fed with the happenings while he was away. He was shocked but happy at the mention of Angela's kidnap and he hoped she doesn't make back alive. He too wondered why no one was asking for any ransom. He has questions for his father so he decided to sit back and wait for the man to return.


###########################################


Angela kept pulling and tugging at the chains that were used to rid her of her freedom. She paused for a moment to think, what do they really want? Is John having a hand in this? What is her father in law doing about this? She concluded that if she need answers, she would only get it by applying force and it might prove to be a wrong move.

She continued to pull and managed to pull out her right hand first, she let out a sharp yell. She had sustained some bruises in her hand and was bleeding from it. The pain was so intense that the hand laid practically dead for some seconds and she spent the next couple of minutes waiting for the pains to subside. She desperately tried to loose her other hand afraid someone might walk in and put her escape mission in Jeopardy.

After much struggle with the chains, she finally succeeded in loosing her other hand and was working on the chains on her feet. Her two hands were bleeding and the bed sheets was in a mess as it was stained all over with blood. She focused on the chains oblivious of the door opening.

The Doctor was surprised, he tiptoed towards her just as she loose the last chain on her leg. She saw him just in time and rolled off the bed as he made to inject her. She made a run for the knife on the table nearby. Just as she was about to collect the knife the Doctor dived her down and they battled for the syringe which had fallen down while the doctor had made the jump at her. Seeing she had lost the syringe to the doctor, she made a move that surprised the doctor, she made for the knife again.

Now she's armed with a knife and the doctor with a syringe, both of them panting heavily. Angela on her own part, was surprised by her new found strength. Adrenaline rush had been her secret. She was determined to find a way out and that had spurred her on.

The Doctor on his part, was surprised. She's supposed to be sleeping, not finding a way to kill him. Why would they even instruct him to keep a knife there?

"Angela please drop the knife" he pleaded

"As soon as you drop the syringe in your hand" she replied confidently.
Inwardly, she's scared but she was determined to overcome.

"You need it's contents. It's important you get to heal first"

"I never complained about any sickness, I'm fine!"

The doctor seemed clueless, he need to send her back to sleep and that was the mission of the syringe in his hands. But since she's holding a knife and he could see determination in her eyes, it's impossible to get close to her

Celebrities / Obituary? Russian Model Enraged After Her Picture Is Used As Tombstone Ad. (Pix) by nellyelitz(m): 7:39am
A former Miss Russia is suing a Moscow graphic design company for using her face to promote tombstones emblazoned with photographs.
Horrified Irina Antonenko, 23, found dozens of photos of herself in a catalogue showing different types of headstones and memorial plaques.
But it was the date of death emblazoned over the headstones that really sent chills down the 2010 title winner’s spine.
The former Miss Universe contestant found out about the catalogue when a fan saw the snaps and posted them online.
Irina said: “I was then sent the pictures on my phone and it was like something from a horror film. Picture after picture showing me dead and buried.
“I’m always happy to do more photo modelling but not like this.”
Lawyers working for the former beauty queen have contacted the funeral parlour, that said the images and artwork had been provided by a local graphic design firm.
They have now obtained a court order against the graphic design company instructing them to destroy all the images and withdraw them from public distribution.
Business owner Isaac Borodin said he had been asked to produce the catalogue by a firm of funeral directors and had no idea who the girl in the photo was that his staff had selected from a picture library.
He said: “I don’t watch beauty contests and I didn’t know she was famous.”
“I just thought it was a pretty girl, and as I had the chance to use the copyright assumed it was OK.”

paxonel:

you have not answered my question, i asked you to show me a place in the bible that says if a sinner commit sin he will go to hell fire
all these places you quoted are just advices. they are advising we christians not to commit sin, they didn't say if we comit sin we will go to hell fire
shall we continue in sin so that grace may abound? (abound there means plenty, check your English dictionary )
so that place is saying, shall we continue in sin so that people will say we have plenty grace? (abundant grace ). God forbid
so it is not saying if we commit sin we will go to hell fire
Galatians 5:19-22 didn't ask any such question like what if christians commit those sins it mentioned will they go heaven? please don't change it
as a matter of fact Galatians 5:24 even says And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
so we have been crucified with Christ, sin or hell fire has no dominion again.over us , not because we are even righteous people, but simply because we believe, making us to have the righteousness of God through Christ
then 5:25 advice us that If we live in the Spirit (because we are already in the spirit, the spirit was given to us freely), let us also walk in the Spirit.(meaning let us avoid sin )
the only place in bible that has been confusing most christians to say if we commit sin we will go to hell fire is
1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
now the question is are christians drunkards? the answer is No
are christians extortioners? NO
because 6:11 says And such were some of yousadthe people who believed among the people Paul was addressing, because some believed and some did not ) but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
so we have been cleansed, we are not drunkards by Gods perception therefore we are saved from hell fire ( Because it is God that will judge, not human a read revelation and know the criteria of Gods judgement, our names are written in that book simply because we believe, not by our works ) but by human perception we drink, we comit sin and we will suffer the consequence of our drinking and sin accordingly here on earth, our salvation will not save us,
faith without works is dead. therefore we should repent from drinking
my friend d wages of sin is death. simple question u cannot answer. rather u keep on blabbing. those who confessed their sins and forsake them will find mercy but those who those who commit any of those sins outlined in galatians 5:19-21, and failed to confess and forsake them will be castaway. it even say they shall not inherent the kingdom of heaven. d question u should ask yourself is, cant a christian turn or backslide and begins to steal, commit adultery and go contary to the word of GOD?

Religion / Re: Recording Of TB Joshua Talking To Journalists (Audio) by JonBee1: 7:09am
rusher14:

So some people decided to place 9.3 million dead american presidents in a plane with South Africa it's destination, in the bid to discredit Ayo?

Not relenting, they found TB Joshua's Achilles heel in a building that was undergoing reconstruction. Upon which they sent a great vibration induced by airplanes hovering above (taking advantage of a nearby airport) whilst keeping all other buildings in the environment intact so none would be wiser.

And in the successful triumvirate of attack, they induced Pastor Anita Oyakhilome to institute a divorce case, knowing she would be lonely and feeling unloved.

These are indeed powerful people I would like you to shed more light on.

They are evil and should be brought to justice. How can they be exposing these MOGs in this manner?

Do they want people to think?

It is the handwork of APC and our enemy the muslims.
