Catholics and Idolatry

kiddoiLL:
So na Jesus be that?? Idol worship.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any LIKENESS of any thing that is in HEAVEN ABOVE, or that is in the EARTH BENEATH, or that is in the water under the earth.

Yet these people form visual gods and revere it. Na God go deliver una

I am sure u have a picture of your father, mother, spouse etc with you somewhere. Will u say u worship these because u have such a representation of them with you?

Idols and pictures are simply representations of people you love and miss and want around u all the time. the fact that u have these things does not mean u worship them.

Worshipping something or an idol is when you place that idol above God Himself. This means, if you place money above God, then you are worshipping money. If you place your house above God, then you are guilty of worshipping that house.

There is no catholic that places any statue above God rather we use them for worshipping God which God Himself recommended in the Bible. I will leave you with this Quote


[b]Anti-Catholic writer Loraine Boettner, in his book Roman Catholicism, makes the blanket statement, "God has forbidden the use of images in worship" (281). Yet if people were to "search the scriptures" (cf. John 5:39), they would find the opposite is true. God forbade the worship of statues, but he did not forbid the religious use of statues. Instead, he actually commanded their use in religious contexts!

People who oppose religious statuary forget about the many passages where the Lord commands the making of statues. For example: "And you shall make two cherubim of gold [i.e., two gold statues of angels]; of hammered work shall you make them, on the two ends of the mercy seat. Make one cherub on the one end, and one cherub on the other end; of one piece of the mercy seat shall you make the cherubim on its two ends. The cherubim shall spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat shall the faces of the cherubim be"
(Ex. 25:18–20). [/b]

Religion / Re: 10 Bible Verses On Tithing by Werehkpe: 1:54pm On Mar 12
ipreach:
Many people have argued much on this subject on and off social media especially on Nairaland.com, that's why i decided to bring to here


1. Because God commands it:

"A tithe of all you produce is the Lord's and it is Holy." (Leviticus 27:30)


2. Because Jesus commands it:

"Yes, you should tithe, and you shouldn't leave the more important things undone either." (Matthew 23:23) Tithing was the only thing Jesus commended the Pharisees for doing right!



3. Because tithing shows that God has first place in your life:

"The purpose of tithing is to teach you to put God first place in your life". (Deuteronomy 14:23 (LB) If God does not have first priority in your finances, He isn't really first in your life and your witness for Christ is false!


4. Because it reminds you that everything you have was given to you by God:
"Always remember that it is the Lord your God who gives you the ability to produce wealth." (Deuteronomy 8:18) Rather than feeling "I'm giving God 10% of my money," realize God is letting you keep 90% of HIS money. Without God's help, you would have nothing.


5. Because tithing expresses your gratitude to God for helping you earn income:
"How can I repay the Lord for all His goodness to me?" (Ps. 116:12) Here's the answer: "Each of you should bring a gift in proportion to the way the Lord your God has blessed you." (Deuteronomy 16:17)


6. Because refusing to tithe is stealing from God:

If you don't tithe, God says you are using money that rightfully belongs to Him. "God says: "Will a man rob God? Yet you are robbing me!' But you ask, 'How do we rob you?' God says: 'In tithes and offerings. Bring your whole tithe to My house.'" (Malachi 3:8-19) (God has a right to whatever He asks for from you.)


7. Because tithing gives God a chance to prove to you that He exists and wants to bless you:

"Bring me your tithe. Test me in this," says the Lord, "and see if I won't throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it, I will prevent pests from devouring your crops and the vines in your fields will be protected from plagues."

This is one of the most amazing promises in the Bible. God actually offers you a challenge. He says "I dare you!" Start tithing and watch what happens!" He not only promises to bless you with more, but He also promises to protect what you already have! In the Bible, tithing is the only way given that you can prove God exists. Start tithing and get ready for God's amazing blessings!


8. Because it is essential to spiritual growth:
"Just as you grow in everything in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in earnestness and love...see that you also grow in the grace of giving." Many Christians remain spiritual babies because they disobey God by not tithing.


9. Because tithing shows you really love God!
"Where your treasure is, your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:21) Wherever you put your money is where your affection is going to be. Every time you give back to God you are drawn closer to Him. You may say you love God, but 2 Corinthians 8:8 says that you’re giving tests the sincerity of your love. You can give without loving but you cannot love without giving.
Jesus said, "If you really love me, do what I command." (John 14:15)


10. Because tithing is an investment for eternity:
Jesus told us to "Store up treasures in heaven." (Matthew 6:19-20) How do you do that? By investing your money in helping people get to heaven! Most of the things you spend your money on will not even last for ten years, much less last for eternity.

http://godsinspired.blogspot.com.ng/2016/03/10-bible-verses-on-tithing.html

2. Mathew 23:23 "how terrible of u teachers of the lwa and Pharisees. U hypocrites U give to God a tenth of even of the seasoning, herebs such as mint BUT U NEGLECT TO OBEY THE REALLY IMPORTANT TEACHINGS OF THE THE LAW SUCH AS JUSTICE, MERCY AND HONESTY. THESE U SHOULD PRACTICE WITHOUT NEGLECTING THE OTHERS. U strain a fly out of your drink and drink a camel.....u wash the outside of your cups and leave their insides dirty"

My understanding here of this passage is that God is saying tithing is not important compared to things like justice, mercy and honesty, love etc.


I focused on this verse BECAUSE IT IS THE DIRECT QUOTE FROM JESUS HIMSELF. All other verses are mere "opinions" of fellow human beings like you and I.

Summary is Love God and love your neighbour. If this does not require you paying tithes to pastors then you are good to go. Pastors these days always try to use verses FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT to justify why you should pay your tithes to them. Then these pastors go ahead to buy the best cars and houses while we the congregation commute by okada, keke napep, old cars and public transport. God is a just God and He will judge everyone fairly according to our deeds and actions. I really pity pastors who collect tithes for the own personal gains rather than for the purpose of charity. They buy limousines, Rolls Royces etc and forget about the needy (COZA's Fatoyimbo comes to mind here). What they fail to realise is that even Jesus adviced that we sell all our properties and belongings to follow Him faithfully. Some Pastors these days are doing the direct opposite. Rather than giving up their personal wealth and spreading it to the needy, they are more concerned with acquiring more wealth

For me, I rather Love God and love my neighbours by catering for my neighbours who are in need. the homeless, the sick, the needy, the less privileged in society. This is the best way to go and if everyone does this, we will soon see that there is enough for everyone's needs but never enough for one man's greed.

TV/Movies / Re: Why Kemen Must Sue Big Brother! by Werehkpe: 11:38pm On Mar 06
pressplay411:
The answer is simple. Big Brother lacks the moral obligation to disqualify Kemen over his situation with Tboss when worse has been condoned.

The show itself reeks of immorality, period.
Several acts of immorality; sexual and non sexual have been perpetrated by contestants and condoned by the organisers of the show since it's inception. But what makes this special? Yes, ladies we agree it was a sensitive and delicate issue and in fact inexcusable, but were you expecting morality from an immoral show?

Where were you when Debby Rise violated Bassey? Or it doesn't count when a man is the victim?
Or where was BigBrother when married TTT was being serviced by Bisola? Why didn't BigBrother (the informant) inform her of his marital status? Maybe that just wasn't immoral enough.

Perhaps the most hypocritical part on Big brother would have to be in 2007, remember the fingergate scandal between Richard and Ofunekka? How convenient that BigBrother even rewarded the culprit with the prize of the competition. But now disqualify Kemen for a less grievous act?

In conclusion, BigBrotherNigeria is not a realityshow that prides itself over it's moral standards, so to escalate this Kemen-Tboss situation to the level of disqualification was just plain hypocritical. Especially considering that TBoss didn't even lodge a complaint, rather BigBrother blew the whole situation out of proportion.

Kemen would henceforth be stigmatized and become victimized as a sex offender which would damage his relationship and business. He should and must sue for damages and in fact defamation of character.

First thing you should think about is CONSENT. When Kemen was fingering TBoss, was it with her consent or not. If she did not consent to it, then Kemen has to go. Thats close to rape.

Second, its an immoral show though some might want to debate this. But as in the case of TTT and Bisola, was there consent between both parties? The answer was yes.

So really Big Brother is justified in his decision to disqualify Kemen

Third, for people suggesting that Kemen should sue Big Brother, I wonder how that idea came from? In truth Big Brother and TBoss should be the ones sueing Kemen and not the other way round. After all its Kemen who is in the wrong here since he had no consent from TBoss

Education / Re: 7 Nigerian Universities With The Most Beautiful Buildings by Werehkpe: 8:28pm On Mar 01
Any top 5 Nigerian University ranking that does not have University of Ibadan on its list is DEFINITELY not correct. I have been to OAU, ABU Zaria, UniLag, UNN and a few other "secondary schools" and trust me when I say apart from OAU (which is still up for debate) U.I clearly trumps all other universities in terms of structures, academic excellence and land space.

The ONLY area U.I lags FARRRR behind is in the area of online and internet presence as well as relevance. Apart from that. U.I definitely has to be the best in Nigeria. Dont let anyone deceive you. THAT IS SIMPLY THE FACTUAL TRUTH
Politics / Re: Why Is Nigeria's President Buhari Still In London? BBC by Werehkpe: 5:29pm On Feb 23
SalamRushdie:
Buhari a disaster that should never even allowed to lead any nation that intends to grow ..1984 he destroyed Nigeria and in 2015 he came back to do same

Dont be ignorant young man. Buhari never destroyed the country in 1984. Go and read your history properly. In 1984 there was a recession in Naija when he took over power. He also ended up bringing us out of that recession.

This recession is a little different though because it was brought upon us by decades of regrettable decisions and lack of will particularly by the last administration of President Jonathan to save. The learned likes of Okonjo Iweala, Emir Sanusi, Prof Soludo and several Governors have all concluded on this.

So to say President Buhari has destroyed the country "again" is far off the truth and mark.

I will advise you search for a documentary on Nigeria called "The Real Story of Nigeria" perhaps its insightfulness into the Naija issues will enlighten you and broaden your knowldege base.

What he has said is true BUT what differentiates him from Tuface and other weaklings who have succumbed to political fear? Charlie Boy is doing the VERY SAME thing many Nigerians do - criticize and make suggestions so the Nigerian youths can praise them.

Its time to stop talking and take actions. Its only when people like Charlie Boy, Tuface, Femi etc lead the way that Nigerian youths will rally together for the common purpose of making this country better and freeing our country of wasteful and self centred politicians

I will PERSONALLY be alongside Charlie Boy, Tuface, Femi should they lead such rallys and protests

First thing u MUST know is this

ANY union (marriage, friendship, political party or religious body) founded on lies is bound to fail or not work

So my advice is first explain to her how much u love her and that nothing will change it as long as she is truthful to u.

Next ask her to ask her if she has lied about anything to u and if she is hiding anything from u!

If her answer is No and she insists on d false age she initially told u, then i will further advice u forget the marriage plans and tell her why u are not going ahead with d marriage plans.

If she can lie about something as petty as her age, then she can lie about anything. She may be a divorcee or even have children and may be lying to u she doesn't.
Culture / Emir Sanusi On The Problem With Nigeria And Nigerians by Werehkpe: 4:27pm On Jan 03
I came across this online. Its an abstract from Sanusi Lamido (Emir of Kano). I cannot confirm its authenticity but its worth sharing

Please read!!!!

The former Central Bank Governor, and Emir of Kano His Royal Highness Muhammadu Sanusi Lamido, surprised guests present at the Muson Centre for the launching of the book of Sir Olaniwun Ajayi.

Please find below his unedited speech.

“Let me start by saying that I am Fulani (laughter). My grandfather was an Emir also fulani my uncle and guardian was also the immediate late Emir of kano Alhaji Ado Bayero and therefore I represent all that has been talked about this afternoon. Sir Ajayi has written a book. And like all Nigerians of his generation, he has written in the language of his generation.

“My grandfather was a Northerner, I am a Nigerian. The problem with this country is that in 2009, we speak in the language of 1953. Sir Olaniwun can be forgiven for the way he spoke, but I cannot forgive people of my generation speaking in that language.

“Let us go into this issue because there are so many myths that are being bandied around. Before colonialism, there was nothing like Northern Nigeria, Before the Sokoto Jihad, there was nothing like the Sokoto caliphate. The man from Kano regard himself as bakane. The man from Zaria was bazazzage. The man from Katsina was bakatsine. The kingdoms were at war with each other. They were Hausas, they were Muslims, they were killing each other.

“The Yoruba were Ijebu, Owo, Ijesha, Akoko, Egba. When did they become one? When did the North become one? You have the Sokoto Caliphate that brought every person from Adamawa to Sokoto and said it is one kingdom. They now said it was a Muslim North.

“The Colonialists came, put that together and said it is now called the Northern Nigeria. Do you know what happened? Our grand fathers were able to transform to being Northerners. We have not been able to transform to being Nigerians. The fault is ours.

Tell me, how many governors has South West produced after Awolowo that are role models of leadership? How many governors has the East produced like Nnamdi Azikiwe that can be role models of leadership? How Many governors in the Niger Delta are role models of leadership? Tell me. There is no evidence statistically that any part of this country has produced good leaders.

You talk about Babangida and the problems of our economy. Who were the people in charge of the economy during Babangida era? Olu Falae, Kalu Idika Kalu. What state are they from in the North?

“We started the banking reform; the first thing I heard was that in Urobo land, there will be a curse of the ancestors. I said they (ancestors) would not answer. They said why? I said how many factories did Ibru build in Urobo land? So, why will the ancestors of the Urobo people support her?

“We talk ethnicity when it pleases us. It is hypocrisy. You said elections were rigged in 1959, Obasanjo and Maurice Iwu rigged election in 2007. Was it a Southern thing? It was not. “The problem is: everywhere in this country, there is one Hausa, Ibo, Yoruba and Itshekiri man whose concern is how to get his hands on the pile and how much he can steal.

Whether it is in the military or in the civilian government, they sit down, they eat together. In fact, the constitution says there must be a minister from every state.

“So, anybody that is still preaching that the problem of Nigeria is Yoruba or Hausa or Fulani, he does not love Nigeria . The problem with Nigeria is that a group of people from each and every ethnic tribe is very selfish. The poverty that is found in Maiduguri is even worse than any poverty that you find in any part of the South.

The British came for 60 years and Sir Ajayi talked about few numbers of graduates in the North (two as at independence) . What he did not say was that there was a documented policy of the British when they came that the Northerner should not be educated. It was documented. It was British colonial policy. I have the document. I have published articles on it. That if you educate the Northerner you will produce progressive Muslim intellectuals of the type we have in Egypt and India. So, do not educate them. It was documented. And you say they love us (North) more than the south.

“I have spent the better part of my life to fight and Dr. (Reuben) Abati knows it. Yes, my grandfather was an Emir. Why was I in the pro-democracy movement fighting for June 12? Is (Moshood) Abiola from Kano ? Why am I a founding director of the Kudirat Initiative for Nigerian Development (KIND)?

“There are good Yoruba people, good Igbo people, good Fulani people, good Nigerians and there are bad people everywhere. That is the truth. “Stop talking about dividing Nigeria because we are not the most populous country
in the world. We have all the resources that make it easy to make one united great Nigeria . It is better if we are united than to divide it.

“Every time you talk about division, when you restructure, do you know what will happen? In Delta Area, the people in Warri will say Agbor, you don’t have oil. When was the Niger Delta constructed as a political entity? Ten years ago, the Itshekiris were fighting the Urobos. Isn’t that what was happening? Now they have become Niger Delta because they have found oil. After, it will be, if you do not have oil in your village then you cannot share our resources.

“There is no country in the world where resources are found in everybody’s hamlet. But people have leaders and they said if you have this geography and if we are one state, then we have a responsibility for making sure that the people who belong to this country have a good nature.

“So, why don’t you talk about; we don’t have infrastructure, we don’t have education, we don’t have health. We are still talking about Fulani. Is it the Fulani cattle rearer or is anybody saying there is no poverty among the Fulani?”, he said.

This is a great message to our generation.
In 1923, nine of the wealthiest people in the world met at Chicago's Edge Water Beach Hotel.

Their combined wealth, it is estimated, exceeded the wealth of the Government of the United States at that time. These men certainly knew how to make a living and accumulate wealth. Attending the meeting were the following men:

1. The president of the largest steel company,

2. The president of the largest utility company,

3. The president of the largest gas company,

4. The president of the New York Stock Exchange,

5. The president of the Bank of International Settlements,

6. The greatest wheat speculator,

7. The greatest bear on Wall Street,

8. The head of the World's greatest monopoly &

9. A member of President Harding's cabinet.

That's a pretty impressive line-up of people by anyone's yardstick.

Yet, 25 years later, where were those nine industrial giants?

Let’s examine what happened to them 25 years later.
1. The President of the then largest steel company (Bethlehem Steel Corp), Charles M Schwab, lived on borrowed capital for five years before he died bankrupt.

2. The President of the then largest gas company, Howard Hubson, went insane.

3. One of the greatest commodity traders (Wheat Speculator), Arthur Cutten, died insolvent.

4. The then President of the New York Stock Exchange, Richard Whitney, was sent to jail.

5. The member of the US President’s Cabinet (the member of President Harding's cabinet), Albert Fall, was pardoned from jail just to be able to go home and die in peace.

6. The greatest “bear” on Wall Street, Jesse Livermore committed suicide.

7. The President of the then world’s greatest monopoly, Ivar Krueger, committed suicide.

8. The President of the Bank of International Settlement, Leon Fraser, committed Suicide.

9. The president of the largest utility company, Samuel Insull, died penniless.

What they forgot was how to "make" life while they got busy making money!

Money in itself is not evil; it provides food for the hungry, medicine for the sick, clothes for the needy. Money is only a medium of exchange.

We need two kinds of education:

a) One that teaches us how to make a living,

and

b) One that teaches us how to live.

There are many of us who are so engrossed in our professional life that we neglect our family, health and social responsibilities.

If asked why we do this, we would reply that "We are doing it for our family".

Yet, our kids are sleeping when we leave home. They are sleeping when we come back home!! Twenty years later, we’ll turn back, and they’ll all be gone, to pursue their own dreams and their own lives.

Without water, a ship cannot move. The ship needs water, but if the water gets into the ship, the ship will face existential problems. What was once a means of living for the ship will now become a means of destruction.

Similarly we live in a time where earning is a necessity but let not the earning enter our hearts, for what was once a means of living will surely become a means of destruction for us as well.

So take a moment and ask yourself, "Has the water entered my ship?" I hope not!

Hope the above story will drive all of us in a better direction in life.

''Alone I can 'Say' but
together we can 'talk'.

'Alone I can 'Enjoy' but
together we can
'Celebrate'.

'Alone I can 'Smile' but
together we can 'Laugh'.

That's the BEAUTY of
Human Relations.

We are nothing without
each other .

The Ijaws are the 4th largest ethnic group in Nigeria. They extend all along the coast even as far as Okitipupa in Ondo State. They are over 10 million in population.

There are also about 367 ethnic groups in Nigeria. Try and read the book "Ethnic Pluralism, Ethnicity and Ethnic Conflicts in Nigeria"

You can thank me afterwards

OK,

-You mean electric or battery powered?
- What is the economic benefit of this investment?
- What is the anticipated traffic in this facility?
- How much did it cost the Cross River State government?

And dont you think proper research about all these would have been taken into consideration before embarking on such a large scale project?

The problem with people like you is that you try to act intelligent BUT underneath you are just a noise maker
Family / Re: How Much Is Ideal To Be Giving One's Wife As Monthly Stipend? by Werehkpe: 2:40am On Jun 20, 2016
banjolek:
Hello guys,

I need your honest opinion on this, how much is really ideal to give one's wife as monthly pocket money?.

Here's my story, i recently got married and also moved to a new 3 bedroom apartment around gbagada. I earn a pretty decent income while my wife also works in the bank with a salary of like 150k. She saves a half of this salary and uses the remaining for upkeep.

Now the issue is my wife insists that i must give her monthly pocket money and i have proposed 20k, an amount i feel is more than adequate for her if added to about 75k which she already has to herself from her salary. Also note that this 20k does not mean i dont get to buy her random stuff during the month or provide anything she asks for if i feel its a reasonable demand.

A1so bear in mind that i am still 100% responsible for providing food and other bills in the house. In addition we just moved to a new apartment like i mentioned earlier and still in the process of furnishing it so a chunk of my monthly salary goes into furnishing the house.

We also have a plan to set up a business for her, so i'm also currently saving part of my salary to fulfill that dream.

Now my wife has rejected the proposed amount of 20k saying its too small.

I need your take on this people, considering all i have mentioned above, is 20k really too small to be giving her monthly?

i wrote this in a hurry, please bear with any typo observed.

Is she IBO? cus na dem like money pass o.

If i am you, I wont give her upkeep money since she is already working and earning about 150k. She can use that for her upkeep and other things while you divert your funds to building a stronger home and furnishing your house. The truth is she is your wife she cannot leave your house or divorce you because you are not giving her upkeep money WHILE SHE IS STILL EARNING. The moment u accept to give her money while she is working you have laid a poor foundation and she will bleed you dry. As a man you have to take HARD and TOUGH decision.

Haba. whats wrong with these women sef. She is saving her money. and collecting from you and allowing only you to foot all the bills. God forbid but if anything goes wrong with your job, she will then have more money than you because she has been saving while you were speding on her and the house. Thats when she will start to show you shegey and talk to you like you are nothing. Bros shine you eye o
Romance / Re: My Fiancee Confessed She's HIV+ After I Proposed To Her. Please, Help by Werehkpe: 2:30am On Jun 20, 2016

For those of you asking if he had unprotected s3x with her, he could have unprotected s3x without contracting the virus.
A man contracting the HIV from a lady is very slim except there are cracks. But a lady contracts it immediately a male carrier ejaculates in her, no matter the quantity of fluid.

Back to your concern OP. You may have to be sure that she isn't pulling your legs to watch your reaction. She may possibly be trying to gauge how you will tolerate or discriminate against disability.

PLEASE DO NOT MIS INFORM PEOPLE

HIV research has reached advanced stages and there drugs that now suppress the virus to an undetected level

OP PLEASE IGNORE ABOVE AND READ BELOW
1. U can go ahead with the relationship and have normal healthy children together.
2. U will have to make sure she adheres to her ART (Anti Retroviral Treatment) drugs. Ensure she takes them at the same and right time everyday
3. U can even have unprotected s3x with her without contacting HIV. BUT before you try this make sure she takes a test called VIRAL LOAD. If the result shows the level of her HIV is undetected then unprotected s3x is possible but not always advisable
4. Once in a while you may have to take pREP drugs. that Pre exposure drugs to ensure you do not contact the virus

Since you have been dating since 2014, I believe she is already on ART drugs and as such her viral load will be undetected. So you have absolutely nothing to worry about EXCEPT SHE STOPS TAKING HER DRUGS.

You can thank God I responded to this
