Most Nigerians are the most stupid people on earth! What is money is good? We celebrate mediocrity in all entirety with no brain! Very foolish set of people, a cow brain and a typical Nigerian’s brain are not far apart! Useless topic!

Can Ighalo measure up with A list Hollywood stars and artists? It is so crazy how money is worshipped in this part of the world, leading millions of youth into various ways of illegal ways to get it. Let’s stop this useless attitude please!

You think differently. It's good

Stop deceiving yourself with that bullsheet claim made by the religious who like to pretend they know more than want is written. lipsrsealed

2. So, because the authors did not write in the English language that should then mean the English translations cannot hold the same information? Come on now... you cannot be that dense, can you?
No I'm not dense. That's why I know the the septuagint is documented in Greek.

Kobojunkie:
It doesn't matter what they were called by others. What matters is instead what name they agreed upon or were given by their ruler. And If you read through the Gospels, none of what you wrote applies. undecided

READ the septuagint your knowledge will be greatly improved.
It might take you just 4 months to understand biblical Greek
The new testament was not written in English

Kobojunkie:
I am being real. Every single one of your questions there is answered in the Gospels. grin
Well let me just make it brief. The new testament was documented in Greek. That's the manuscript alright. The names christ followers are called comes from the he Greek word Χριστιανός (Christianos), meaning "follower of Christ", comes from Χριστός (Christos), meaning "anointed one",

Who are the leaders of God's country?
What is the name of the constitutional law?
Kobojunkie:
1.The Kingdom of God is a country complete with its own leaders and Constitutional Law. So how can the comparison be considered out of context? undecided

Who are the leaders of God's country?
What is the name of the constitutional law?

Kobojunkie:

2. You are not making sense of any kind still. The term Christian has nothing to do with Jesus Christ or the person who follows Jesus Christ. The Law put down by Jesus Christ — the National Constitution of the Kingdom of God — does not include any such tradition and as such it is not of Him or me, a follower of His. undecided

What name should we call people who follow Christ?

Kobojunkie:

3. Again, these so-called biblical traditions have no foundation in Scripture particularly in the Law as set down by Jesus Christ, the one who is ruler and King in the Kingdom of God, the Nation to which those who belong to Him are recruited into


Omo so Jesus don dey do recruitment grin
What name can we call those people who have been recruited

Religion / Re: The Churches That Broke Away From The Catholic Church. by FatherChrismas: 9:25pm On Apr 29
Kobojunkie:
I don't follow! If the agreement by which the country itself was established indicates that the Name the people chose to go by is "Nigeria" how does that compare to the case where Jesus Christ, the one whose nation His followers are a part of, never chose the term "Christian" or even agreed upon it? undecided

2. There is no biblical tradition of the sort which you claim. Religious traditions are not biblical or sanctioned by Scripture. The name "Christians" was chosen by the community of Roman bishops in establishing what was their state religion, a mostly political movement, and that is that. Jesus Christ, who instead condemned the involvement of non-Israelites was completely ignored. undecided

Using a country to draw a comparison is out of context in this argument. And I notice you are trying to drag the discussion to your territory of equating an immobile factor (a country) with a mobile factor (Christ).

1. You failed to answer my question "Have you written your own tradition or setup your own Ecumenical"... Because that's the way you can determine who ought to be called a Christian and who ought not be called any name just like a "headless crew". A headless crew without a name, is that what your want

2. This is the meaning of "biblical tradition" the body of beliefs accepted by a society that gives it continuity with past generations and unity within itself and the process by which these beliefs are transmitted.

Do you understand now?

2. You would be called a Nigerian because Nigeria is the name that the [b]Constitution says the country goes byis it not ? Why should I be called a Christian when the Kingdom of God is not called anything of that sort? undecided
The bolded is your own words

Kobojunkie:
1.
2. I disagree! undecided


According to Biblical tradition and the First Council of Nicaea, (325)convened by the emperor Constantine, Christians are followers of Christ.
Have you written your own tradition or setup your own Ecumenical grin
Religion / Re: The Churches That Broke Away From The Catholic Church. by FatherChrismas: 8:06pm On Apr 29
Kobojunkie:

1. That is actually what you want to believe instead. You have been given this picture by religionists that it is nothing of the sort and so you can't seem to wrap your mind around the facts of things here. But the fact is it is pretty much the same deal you cut as a citizen of a Nation that you cut with Jesus Christ. undecided

2. You would be called a Nigerian because Nigeria is the name that the Constitution says the country goes by, is it not? Why should I be called a Christian when the Kingdom of God is not called anything of that sort? undecided

3. If a bunch of white men came along and called you all the same name, I bet you would all be fuming in the mouth then, right? undecided

Don't get it twisted, this is not about religionist, this is about language, terminologies and facts. Answering your 1,2 You failed to realize you are now arguing against yourself grin
If you go through the posts

About the number 3, it doesn't apply to the logic of the argument but then again let's keep it broad.
Muslims can call you a Christian in an offensive manner. Traditionalists can call you a Christian in an offensive manner. It all depends on the countenance and context.
The same thing applies to Eminem calling 50cent "nigga" in the studio and still laugh about it. Life isn't that hard

Just like that, this one was out to fleece the nation of over 30B naira when several communities are without roads.

Nigeria needs to do something drastic about corruption..
Mind you she was Buhari minister. The president is responsible for his ministers.

If she did not have Buhari backing, she wouldn't be bold to engaging in a staggering 70billion fraud. The EFCC are not saying the actual amount
