Religion / Re: "No Tithe, No Heaven" - Pastor Adeboye by Heromaniaa: 11:20am On Apr 15, 2018
nosagold:

Please read Luke 11:42

Don't deceive others while also deceiving yourself.
Why don't you fducking quote it here?


Copied from a theologian.
“These you ought to have done, without leaving the other undone.” Again I have never heard of a church which required its tithers to bring tithes “of mint and anise and cumin” and demand that they “ought to have done” so in obedience to Jesus’ command in Matthew 23:23.

If this verse is supposed to be interpreted as Jesus’ command for Christians to tithe money (which the text does not clearly state) then it should also be interpreted as Jesus’ command for the church to tithe garden spices according to the Law (which the text does clearly state).

When Jesus said in verse 23, "You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former," he was re-enforcing for Jews, not the moral law which is eternal, but the current interpretation of the ordinances of the ceremonial law of the Old Covenant.

In fact, Jesus could not have told Gentile Christians “These you ought to have done” because Gentiles were not allowed to bring tithes and tithes would not have been accepted even it they attempted to bring them! In order to be legitimate, tithes must only come from Israelites and only from inside Israel!

10. Jesus only commanded Jews to observe the Mosaic Law and present themselves to the priests. He did not command non-Jews to do this because their lives were not governed by the Mosaic Law. It was not possible under the Law for non-Jews to be circumcised or tithe.

My brother has just come to live with me from the East. He has just finished secondary school. In order to stay busy he desires a genuine job that he can use to make ends meet while garnering useful experience. Factory jobs, security jobs, office attendant, sales, waiter are some of the positions he in interested in. How can he secure a good position in Lagos? Do you have links that can help him?

KOPT55:
Op, you have a valid concern and I will give you five steps that will help you.

The first tip is that you have to choose which accent you want to gain proficiency in. This could be American English accent, British accent, Received Pronunciation (RP), or even our Polished Nigerian accent.

If you choose our polished Nigerian accent, then the next step will be to expose yourself to hours upon hours of media and speech practice in the in that accent.

If there a an actor or newscaster that you like their enunciation, download one of their videos to your phone and first watch over and over again till you are fairly familiar with the content.

Next step will be to attempt to speak like that person speaks. If you have a laptop, or watching the video on Youtube, set the speed to 1.25, that is slightly slow playback speed. When the author says something, repeat after them. Own the lines, let the actor live inside your head momentarily. Ensure you pronounce and speak the way the actor is speaking. Genuflect, laugh, dance, smoke weed or drink alchohol. You need to be free and mentally unfiltered in order to allow your mirror neurons pick up and imprint the nuances of the accent inside your head. Another option will be to find somebody from your state who speaks well and use them as a model.


Do this as many times as you can. Expect SIGNIFICANT CHANGES in your enunciation after the first six weeks. Continue till the third month and you would have made significant progress.


VOWELS

A.E.I.O.U as you may know are called vowels. These sounds wherever they occur is the one that most often mispronounced by non-native speaker.

Do you know the difference between these homonyms?

1- beach vs bitch
2-sheet vs shit
3-lip vs leap
4-engine vs ingenuous?

Learn proper pronunciation! Mind vowels wherever they occur in your speech. Nigerian' especially get most English vowels wrong.

Next, please learn some grammar. You might think you don't need it but it is the foundation to good speech as well. Understanding what the rules are help one gain insights in ways they would not have in absence of.

Read a whole lot, have a dictionary that pronounces words, immerse yourself in language rich environments such as debates, plays, seminars etc.

For anyone who is wondering -- I went to a voice training school and now do voice-over work sometimes. I was once like OP.

You suffer from linguistic interference, a common problem affecting those who acquired a mother tongue first, and subsequently learnt a second language, instead of acquiring both the other way round or simultaneously.

Firstly you need to study the phonetic chart of the English language. Study the pronunciation of pure vowels, diphthongs, triphthongs, consonants etc.

Additionally, you need to study stress and intonation. Do not forget to study blending, linking the r etc.

For instance, when r ends a word and is followed by a vowel, link the r.

I did it over and over again. Wrong

I did it overanover again. Right

And the winneris. Right

My uncle. Wrong
Myyuncle Right

Watch American films, listen to CNN, BBC etc. Imitate correct pronunciation.

Stay away from Jennifer's diary and The Johnson's.

What do I know, though? I'm just a regular guy who started learning English when he was eleven years old.

Though today, he teaches English to expatriates who come from non English speaking countries.
