Religion / Re: Your Attitude To Sin Determines Your Salvation/Perfection, Not Activities by romi: 3:49pm On May 03, 2020
[quote author=davidinchrist post=89111765]Truly, followers of Jesus are not exactly perfect and can't be perfect on earth like Jesus till His second coming; however, we have been called to Repent of KNOWN SINS and PRESS UNTO PERFECTION in Jesus.

It's about time we stopped believing that doing good: going to church regularly (as a member/worker/pastor, etc), paying tithes and offerings, helping people or being nice, planting churches and other good works are signs of being born-again or saved. We can't possibly bribe our way into God's kingdom by doing Good Works which are as good as Filthy Rags in God's sight.

Jesus said A Person must be Born Again to enter God's kingdom.

Now, to be born again means to TURN AWAY FROM SINS AND WORLDLINESS (starting from conscious areas, then later to unconscious areas of sins: from the known to the unknown sins). Hebrew chap. 6, Roman chap 7 & 8

Unfortunately, most Evangelists, Pastors, and Churches in general only end up making "Branded Church-Members," NOT necessarily Converted members (disciples), but people of like-minded that would faithfully pay their FIRST FRUITS, TITHES AND OFFERINGS, ETC. That prompts the question on whether they themselves are saved or NOT: the chances are that they ARE NOT, OR ONCE WERE, BUT NOW "FALLEN AWAY".

Are you truly SAVED?

Are you judging yourself; Repenting and PRESSING ONTO PERFECTION?

OR you're still a victim of Money seeking: Corrupt and Greedy Preachers?

It's TIME to Repent of Empty Church Religion that does not lead to HOLINESS (obedience to Jesus according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John).

1 John 2:6 NLT
Those who say they live in God should LIVE their lives as Jesus DID.


Luke 5:32 KJV
I came not to CALL the righteous, but Sinners to Repentance.

Hebrews 6:1 KJV
... let us GO on unto PERFECTION; ...

Hebrews 12:14 KJV
Follow peace with all men , and HOLINESS, without which no man shall SEE the Lord:

John 5:14 NLT
14 But afterward Jesus found him in the Temple and TOLD him, “Now you are WELL; SO STOP SINNING, or something even WORSE may happen to you.”

Matthew 24:24 NLT
24 For FALSE messiahs and FALSE PROPHETS will rise up and PERFORM GREAT SIGNS AND WONDERS so as to Deceive, if possible, EVEN God’s Chosen Ones.


May Jesus Bless You.


God's Mercy on me and my Family.
Let me also add that GOD alone Is the ULTIMATE and not one's Pastor as they are also human.
We shall not miss heaven in JESUS mighty name. Amen!

COPIED.

*DIVORCE YOUR WIFE, FORFEIT YOUR HOUSE TO HER; COURT RULES IN OYO*

By Yejide Gbenga-Ogundare
March 2, 2019
Nigerian Tribune

A woman that has children for her husband and had married him before a house is built has the right to live in the house with her children even after divorce under the provisions of the Married Woman Property Act 1882, a court held on Friday in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The belief that patriarchy is so entrenched in the Nigerian system and women have no rights even under the law has been proved to be an erroneous one, majorly propounded by those ignorant of the rights provided under the law, the court said in a landmark judgement.

The provisions of the *Married Woman Property Act 1882* formed the basis of the pronouncement of the Chief Judge of Oyo State, Justice Munta Abimbola, on Friday in a property suit between a divorced couple, Toyin Arajulu, formerly known as Mrs Toyin James and her former husband, Mr James Monday.

The court held that *“a husband who marries a wife and builds a house during the pendency of the marriage stands the risk of losing that house if he later divorces the woman who had children for him unless such woman, of her own volition, leaves the matrimonial home.”*

Justice Abimbola, while ruling on the matter, emphasised what is known in law as the *“palm tree justice,”* which indicates that it does not matter in whose name the property stands or who pays what (on the property) and in what proportion as determination of such matters transcends all rights, legal or even equitable, but simply what order is fair and just in the circumstances of the case, citing the case of *Home Vs Home (1962) 1 WLR 1124 at 1128.S 17 Married Woman Property Act 1882*, which is a statute of general application.

Toyin Arajulu had filed the suit against her ex-husband, Monday James, who she married under Native Law and Customs in 1997 and for whom she had four children.
She claimed that while she was married to him, they had put resources together and built two flats of three bedrooms at Ayedun in Akure, Ondo State and procured a plot of land at No 7, Fadana Biala Estate, Olodo, Ibadan, where they built a three-bedroom flat and a storey building which is still under construction before their divorce in July 2014.

She averred that before the divorce, her husband had moved out of their matrimonial home in Olodo but only came constantly to try to forcibly eject her and the children, usually accompanied by thugs who attacked her and her children.

She added that on August 15, 2014, one of her children, Bidemi James, was wounded in one of the episodes of attempted violent eviction and the sum of N530,000 from her business taken by her ex-husband and his accomplices.

She claimed that he had concluded plans to sell off the joint property without her consent and had continued to victimise her and the children, asking the court for a declaration that the property is jointly owned by the two of them and an order that the landed property with the three-bedroom flat and uncompleted storey building be sold and proceeds divided equally between them and an order of perpetual injunction restraining James from harassing her and the children.

In his counter claim and defence, the ex-husband stated that when he bought and constructed the Akure property, his wife was a full housewife and had no contribution to the project, adding that the situation was the same for the Ibadan property as his wife only signed as a witness as she had no job and only depended on what he gave her to take care of the children when he travelled out of the country.

According to him, she was only trying to fraudulently take over his property, adding that her claims were vexatious, gold digging and an abuse of court process.

He also asked the court to declare that the receipts of purchase his ex-wife presented were forged and that she should vacate possession of the property which she had refused to give up despite service of statutory seven days owner’s intention to recover possession and perpetual injunction restraining her from occupying the building.

*HELD*
Justice Abimbola, while ruling on the case, held that the landed property at No 7, Fadana Biala Estate, Olodo, Ibadan, together with the three-bedroom flat and uncompleted storey building is jointly owned by the two.

On the second relief that both buildings be sold as requested by Toyin, Justice Abimbola held that, *“I will not give such orders in respect of the two buildings. Particularly, Section 17 Married Women Law of Oyo state Cap 83, Laws of Oyo state 2000 gives a court the discretion as it thinks fit on the issues of title of possession to property.*
*“Section 18 also enjoins the court to treat such property as a joint property if the issue has to do with the maintenance of a matrimonial home.*

*" My order to this effect is that the completed three-bedroom flat on the land be retained as the matrimonial property and the four children are entitled as beneficial owners by way of a resulting trust created for them by their parents. The mother, as long as she remains unmarried, is directed to be in possession undisturbed in order to take care of her children.*

*"The uncompleted storey building is ordered to be sold by both parties and the proceeds divided in equal share. The half share shall go to the wife for the maintenance of the children. A divorced wife has no business being maintained,”*

Justice Abimbola held.

The court also restrained James from harassing Toyin any further or disturbing the quiet possession of the property by her and the children, holding that, *“the rationale is that a husband who marries a wife and builds a house during the pendency of the marriage stands the risk of losing that house if he later divorces the woman who had children for him unless such woman, of her own volition, leaves the matrimonial home.*

*Also, a divorced woman is not entitled to any maintenance allowance but maintenance of the children by way of settlement.”*

Family / Re: Should I Stop Helping People: I Need Logical Advice by romi: 11:29pm On Aug 19, 2016
MozartianDreams:
I have been through similar experiences though I may be way younger than you are - I am 21 years old. Nevertheless, I am to be due for my NYSC service in a few months, infact I spilled my last year in the university, so I have been forced to mature faster than others in my actual age range you may say, as I am usually the youngest or among the youngest amongst my peers.

A few months ago, in meeting someone's need as way of a loan, I have parted with roughly #25,000 and received 'excuses' and genuinely the debtor can't pay back. Other cases have occured as well. I have been termed 'foolish', 'a maga' by some.

It seemed people deliberately took advantage of me for the fact that I was very meek and charitable. I got very mad. Even friends at times 'exploited' me. I was bitter for a while.

The least anyone could do for me for being nice was to do nothing (I don't need your good, but please don't do me evil after I have done you good) - That was my philosophy.

But later on I realized that I wasn't 'entitled' to demand (mentally) how anyone should treat me as it isn't a perfect world and to avoid unneccessary frustrations from disappointments. I revised my reasons for doing good in the first place. Ask yourself why you do good? Does it make you happy? Would you rather not care? Are you fine/ok with that? Whatever your answers are, your reasons for doing what you do (good deeds, that is) should be formed internally and not swayed by circumstances. It is a selfless and thankless character.

I admitted no one should be the reason for my happiness in that respect.

Also, define boundaries, this is how you protect yourself, if you will. It wasn't until recently that I began to define meaningful boundaries. It's okay to relate with people, but you wouldn't want to behave in such a way as to be lenient to a questionable character like stealing hence attracting it.

You need to talk to your secretary and your neighbour's kid what you will not stand for. It helps to put out your boundaries upfront.

Also, try to change them with God's help by treating them better than they deserve. If you treat someone as they are, they may never change, but if you treat them as what they could be, they will change to be that person (paraphrased) - I have forgotten who said that.

Success!

Thanks, will put it to heart, I do it cos I genuinely don't see people suffering esp in genuine cases but like u said ...(I don't need your good, but please don't do me evil after I have done you good) - ..this is the painful part of it for me, I don't expect anything in return from them, I'm even usually embarrased when we see the next day and they say thanks for yesterday!

The boy slit the net to be hiding things in the space he created, he kept things there, please don't get me wrong, I don't expect any form of thanks or applaud from the things I did, far from it, I'm just pained that their actions hurt me. I am doing it for humanity sake!
Family / Should I Stop Helping People: I Need Logical Advice by romi: 9:42pm On Aug 19, 2016
I have to talk to someone this nite else I mite embarassed. Apologies for any typos that might occur, I'm usually drawn to d underdogs I.e people who are really undergoing some kinda unfortunate misfortune.
I will try and chose my words carefully in order not to offend anyone, I reside in a place where there are 6 block of flats, a young boy whose father died and whose mum had plenty kids, that boy was given to his uncle who is our neighbour.
This boy works frm 5.30am till .......,on many occasions at 11pm at nite they will lock him out for one flimsy and non flimsy offences and other neighbours will plead before they let him in.
I keep to myself but greet all my neighbours cordially and we offer help to ourselves in times of need.
Back to the matter, I will give this boy food, bread, money, drugs when he is shaking and feverish and they dont care to treat him.
He attends public school that is on strike while their kids attend private and they will lock the house and tell him to seat on a stool on the verandah.
What he did was that he had the audacity to slit my mosquito net from behind the dinning room area as I don't usually open that particular window and he was hiding things there, out of 6 blocks of flats he choose mine to slit and not the other neighbours, me that was d one helping him o.
I confronted d guardian who told me that since when I saw the boy and shouted but I didn't make it on time to come out of the house and catch him cos he had run away, the boy wasn't the one who slit my net, I froze and was vibrating out of anger and warned the boy never to come near my residence in the presence of his guardian.
This happened months ago and I washed my hands off caring for the boy, But as God will have it, people knock on their door and accuse the boy of all manners of offences, they will drag him and beat him, now he ran away from the house for d past 3days now with the guardian and his wife making calls and going to the police station.
Why I am agitated is the second incidence, we have 2secretaries in my office, one is single, the other is married and the unmarried one secretary came to look for a living here as her parents are in the village. I always try to help her even more than the other married secretary, I won't go into details but I take her as my younger sister.
I give her things more than the other secretary most times, do you know that she stole my memory card today from the phone I kept on my desk as the other secretary was practically out of the oFfice for the major part and when the other secretary came back, I picked my bags and left the office, my boss wasn't around too, he travelled. I was carrying out some assignment and when I came into the office, I saw my phone in her hand, she was kinda handling it playfully and there had been an earlier incidence of memory card been stolen form my boss phone.
I simply called her and told her I forgot my memory card at the office and I'm sure its at the office that she should pick it up tomorrow when she is sweeping and give me on monday when I resume.
I am not happy right now, should I just stop helping people and face front now and mind ONLY my own business, whether people collapse from hunger or not or be non Challant whenever they are crying even if its genuine?
The boy slit the net to be hiding things in the space he created, he kept things there, please don't get me wrong, I don't expect any form of thanks or applaud from the things I did, far from it, I'm just pained that their actions hurt me. I am doing it for humanity sake!
Please pardon my epistle and please because of Almighty God, no insults as I am not in the mood, matured reply only please!

Antoinne,

Please stop making a fool of yourself by trying so hard to be a definition of your own version of "cultured".

People take food out of airplanes, no biggie. Personally, I won't because I haven't been on an airline that serves Nigerian food and I am not a fan of western food. But I will damn right takes snacks (Pretzels, Almonds, Pistasios) out of a plane.

And FYI: lots of white people do too! Or are they not the definition of cultured to you? People like you are the ones who worship anything western forgetting they're are the nastiest of nasty. Trying to act more western than the westerners. Boo!

I paid for it and imma take it out. And did I hear you say international flights or even airlines don't allow you take food past security? cheesy We have taken Jollof Rice past security before and we even told them we had cooked food. So far it isn't liquid, you're good.

Overall, you're plenty shades of ignorant and uncultured. And should I add that you sound exactly like a wannabe who just started flying on airplanes with little or no exposure. You're trying too hard Hun, bring it down a notch and maybe...just maybe it wouldn't look so much like a struggle. Laters
