Ok.. MOST are right! Some are contradictory. SOME wont work here in Nigeria. i.e 18.
Imagine you are in a bus and the driver is driving recklessly and you warned him ONLY once about his reckless driving but he didnt heed your warning, he tried overtaking and everything went bad but you luckily managed to survive but with lots of physical evidence to tell a tale(lemme put it that way). Trust me! You'll have been sorry for not being persistent on warning him.
In some cases you have to become a talkactive especially here in nigeria.

It is important to understand the fact that satan will not come with horns and red garments to deceive us, absolutely NOT. He is going to come through the lust of the eyes, lust of the fresh and the pride of life.

It is also important to realise that we all have a blind spot. Job 30: 12.

It is therefore important to note that the word of God is the mirror God has ordained by which we live our lives. 2 Corinthians 3: 18. Apart from God's word being our mirror, I believe we need people around us who will act as mirrors in our lives especially when we are going astray.

Anyone can fall if you are not careful enough.. Falling down is not the end of life.. If he can repent and reconnect to God.. All will be well.

Accepting Christ into my life will never allow U to live a wasted life..

Receiving Jesus into your life will not permit the enemy to write the last chapter of your life.

Making Jesus your best friend, he will help U to rewrite your life and family history..

How I wish Nigerians can practice religion in actions not in their words.
I'm a Muslim, all these are contain in my religion, unfortunately not everyone care to practice it.

If only Christians and Muslims can humbly embrace the real saying of their religion that's when we would all enjoy our precious country.

Thank you OP.

May God bless you.

Should we be silent when we have facts to disprove a liar, knowing doing so will bruise their ego and disgrace them?
