Those bonehead hisbah mooks will destroy crates of beer and alcoholic drinks, while their equally boneheaded governors will happily share in the VAT accruing from the sales of those same drinks. Northern Muslims take hypocrisy and stupidity to new glorious levels.

This lawyer guy is trying to reason with Northern muslins using law and logic. Law and logic are alien to these people.

Religion / Re: Should A Non-tither Take Up Leadership Position In A Tithe Paying Church? by adelee777: 1:44pm On Apr 21, 2019
The way pro-tithers react to issues involving tithes shows either they have been so brainwashed, or they are dubious.

Back to your question, I am in the same situation as you. Found out the ruse around 5 years ago too. I am a minister in my church. Been ordained in a church is not the only way to serve God. You serve God in spirit and in truth. not by man-made ordination, hierarchical position etc. You don't need to serve God through organised religion. True religion acceptable unto God is helping people and not being tainted by the world.

Religion / Re: Did The Bible Really Say That A Woman Must Marry Her Rapist? by adelee777: 6:42pm On Apr 13, 2019

There is no error here.

Satan often gets special permission from God to harm believers. We see this in the example of Job and King Saul, at least (other examples abound).

In other words, Satan can be a tool in God's Hand for both testing and punishment for His Children. So, both verses are stating the same truth in two different but legitimate ways.

Wow! Thanks for this explanation. Never thought of it that way. God bless you in Jesus Name bro.

Even when shown the multitude of errors contained in these modern Bible versions that deliberately omit key verses and even called Jesus the fallen satan, you still stick to those books. You want to tell me that God doesn't have his perfect word in English that is why so many versions are popping out?

Keeping allowing Satan to deceive you with fake Bibles

You confuse tradition with true worship. Your type are the ones that will say reading bible on an electronic gadget is a sin. No error in your KJV? Read 2Samuel 24 and 1Chronicles 21 in your KJV and see how you have no errors in your KJV.

Religion / Re: Did The Bible Really Say That A Woman Must Marry Her Rapist? by adelee777: 10:36am On Apr 08, 2019
Ihedinobi3:

I agree that the Bible does not teach that according to the Mosaic Law a raped woman must marry her rapist. It clearly teaches rather that the rapist is the one who is forced to marry the woman and treat her honorably, never divorcing her as long as he lives.

But I strongly disagree on two things here:

1. That the NIV is substantively different from the KJV here. In Early Modern English (the language in which the KJV was translated), "lay hold on" almost always implies force in a violent context. The exceptions would imply determination in the absence of violence.

Also there are four different situations here:

i. Man rapes unbetrothed virgin (Deuteronomy 22:28-29)

ii. Man seduces unbetrothed virgin (Exodus 22:16-17)

iii. Man rapes betrothed virgin (Deuteronomy 22:25-27)

iv. Man seduces betrothed virgin (Deuteronomy 22:23-24)

In (iii) and (iv), the man is killed because this is really adultery. In (iv), the woman is killed too because she consented despite being betrothed to another man. That is adultery.

In (i) and (ii), the woman is a free agent, so the rules are different. If it is rape, as in (i), the man is forced to marry her because he has insulted the woman and made it hard for her to find a husband (see Deuteronomy 22:13-21). If she were to marry someone else, she would be risking her life because the evidence of her virginity would be lacking on the marriage night. Note also that he cannot divorce her anymore. This law was made to protect women and guarantee marriage for them if anyone violated them. Compare 2 Samuel 13:1-22, especially verse 16. Then, as now, virginity was a great pride for the woman.

If it is seduction, as in (ii), the man must pay her dowry, also to make clear that another man has already had her. Because there was mutual consent here, the woman may not be compensated with an actual marriage: it is up to her father to decide whether to accept the rapist as his son-in-law or not. But the dowry is paid for her protection still, and the seducer has no choice but to marry her, if her father consents to the marriage. Any other man who marries her would know that she was taken by another man before him. He would also know that it was consensual. So, he would be getting into the marriage fully aware of her past history, and therefore unable to do her any further harm because of it (see Deuteronomy 22:13-21 again).

Both translations can be different, but not so much that one would consider them different Bibles. Neither is a perfect translation either - although both are among the very best translations available - so it is wise to compare them to each other as one studies.

2. That the Mosaic Law is still in force. Nearly all of Paul's letters addressed this. Romans, Galatians, the two letters to the Corinthians (especially in their address of circumcision), Colossians and especially Hebrews were devoted to teaching vigorously that the Law is no longer in force in the Church Age. This is made more emphatic by both the total absence of the Temple in Jerusalem throughout the period of the Church Age as well as the non-existence of the priesthood in Israel. There can be no more emphatic a way to show the removal of the Law than these witnesses.

The New Testament is chock-full of its own laws that we are responsible to adhere to, not least that there should be no sexual immorality, and everyone who lacks the gift of celibacy should have their own spouse and be faithful to them. In the New Testament, the hopes and expectations of the Old Testament are brought to fruition. It is not only foolishness, but also blasphemy against the Cross of Jesus Christ to return to the Mosaic Law in any form (Galatians 5:2; Hebrews 6:4-6; 10:26). We study that Law now in order to more completely understand the New Testament, because in that Law the New Testament is found in shadows.

I am always happy when I see Christians with the knowledge of what Christianity is all about. People always confuse traditions with true Christianity. When I see somebody praising the KJV to high heavens I just smh on such ignorance. God bless you bro for this writeup.

You cant dispute the fact that there are few Yoruba Reverend fathers in d Catholic Church. Probably because majority of Catholics in Nigeria are Igbo. Also in Christ embassy the members of the central executive council are all from Edo state like pastor Chris oyakhilome, because they were foundational members & have been in the ministry longer working with him.
Only a twisted person will start bringing tribe into d matter.

How many Americans or Britons do you see living in Nigeria as compared to the number of Nigerians in those countries? It is the law of migration that humans migrate to places that are more developed and good for trade, not the other way round. Wonder why there are more Ibos in Yorubaland than vice versa?

What year was it shown?

They were like human caricatures. Used to watch it from early 80s to mid 80s.My dad loved it. I hated it (apart from the opening theme) cos it aired just before Brazilian Soccer (which used to start by 10pm Sunday nights on NTA 10. Hated any program that preceded Brazilian Soccer, Big League Soccer and Soccer in Germany, as those programs seemed to stretch the time I had to wait before watching my football.

The Apostles paid more than tithe. They sold their properties and use the money for GOD's work.

Always give to GOD what belongs to GOD.

A good church uses your tithes for evangelism, helping the congregation and . not for pastor's enrichment

Seems you guys are still confused about what tithe is. The apostles sold all and gave it as OFFERING. Many people complaining about tithes pay offerings that are more than tithes. What many complain about is the dubious way people are being manipulated in the tithes issue. It is not wrong to pay tithes. What is wrong is a preacher saying it is compulsory for a christian.

I think power generation is actually in d exclusive list just like natl Defence, police, aviation, customs, state creation etc.

Infact almost all critical components of development in Nigeria is in the exclusive list. It's all intended to besically to gather more power n control in d center so that no matter how any region or state pushes, other week regions will be carried along.
It's actually counterproductive now.
That's y many bouyant states are not really interested in providing there own power.
Because if u generate? U can't distribute it urself

Any, what do u expect when the Constitution was literally written by a northern controlled military.
I think if power must be generated by government the sensible thing to do is for each state government to generate their own power. But "sensible" and "government" in Nigeria are two mutually exclusive expressions.
