You did what you believe was right but that is not what they practice. So your belief in some environment might not be what they believe. So you both are RIGHT! Free your mind a take a chilled coca cola!

|Religion / Bishop Kwakpovwe Of Our Daily Manna Offers Free Medical Services To The Needy by tooblessed: 5:34pm On Jul 03, 2018|
In line with the fundamental gospel doctrine of caring for the poor and needy, Bishop Dr. Chris Kwakpovwe, publisher of leading Christian devotional, Our Daily Manna, over the weekend led members of his Manna Prayers Mountain Ministry to provide succour to hundreds of less privileged in Lagos.
The bishop, through his Church’s annual programme tagged ‘Mercy Week’, offered free medical services to hundreds of people with different ailments at two venues in Lagos (Lekki and Ogudu).
Speaking to our correspondent on the initiative, the gregarious bishop said that the two-day outreach was going on simultaneously in about 100 countries and locations where the ministry had its branches.
He disclosed that he heard a divine instruction three years ago to show mercy and impact on humanity before his church’s yearly 14-day prayer and fasting holding every July.
On Saturday, the clergy and his members with support from the medical team of the leading multinational, Shell Nigeria Exploration and Production Company alongside volunteers from University of Lagos and Lagos State University Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy Schools and the Lagos State Ministry of Health, attended to those with different medical needs.
ODM Publisher, Bishop Kwakpovwe
The team led by Bishop Kwakpovwe, a trained Pharmacist but who dropped his Pharmacist’s coat 30 years ago, examined many of those in attendance, dispensed medicines to them and prayed for their divine healing. Those who were in need of surgery, according to the bishop, were referred to the hospitals for comprehensive attention.
Mr. Amiang Enobong, a staff of Shell Nigeria, who led the medical team, was full of praise for the Bishop who he commended for coming up with such a noble initiative.
According to him, his company had been collaborating with various communities and organizations in the area of medical outreach but the initiative of the ODM publisher had been so exceptional. The Shell team later presented the clergyman with an award for his selfless service.
One of the beneficiaries of the medical outreach, Mrs. Margaret Auta thanked the bishop for the initiative.
According to her, there were many in her community who had been battling with different types of ailments but due to lack of funds could not run tests for proper diagnosis.
“I really appreciate the Bishop for coming to our aid. With the present economic situation in the country, many of us could not afford exorbitant cost of treatment at the hospitals. But he had brought doctors to examine us, conducted tests and gave us free medicine. God will continue to bless him and I hope other church leaders would emulate him,” a visibly elated Auta said.
Also commenting, Mr. Emmanuel Ogunkoya, popularly called Victory in the Ogudu Oke community, said he never believed in the programme until he saw a van on Saturday morning moving around to sensitise the people in the area and he decided to visit the venue of the outreach to satisfy his curiosity.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw doctors and pharmacists including Bishop Chris himself personally attending to various people with different ailments. I had to avail myself of some tests which would have cost me a lot of money and got some drugs for free. This is what churches should be doing more. I really want to thank the Bishop for this,” he said.
To close the Mercy Week, on Sunday, Bishop Kwakpovwe led some of his church members to visit some select orphanages, old Peoples’ homes and prisons where he donated gifts, food items and money to the inmates.
The Delta State-born preacher, had lately been assaulted with various frivolous controversies which he saw as persecutions, not of him but the body of Christ. Nevertheless, he had remained unruffled and had not allowed those challenges to distract his evangelical mission thus the enthusiastic feeling towards the success of the annual Mercy Week.
He had blessed many souls through his devotional, Our Daily Manna, with millions of copies rolled off the press every quarter and reaching millions of families all over the world every day.
At the last count, Kwakpovwe to his credit had written over 70 books.

|Religion / Re: Of What Use Is The Judgement Day? by tooblessed: 8:10am On Apr 19, 2013|
My brother, it is to prove that God is just. The account of the fall of man in the garden of Eden might through more light. To make us understand we deserve what the punishment or reward will be. I think there wouldn't be any judgement if God had not given us laws to live by. The essence of this is to show whether we obeyed or disobey God as while we lived here on earth. My opinion! If we live right as God's word instructs we do not need to be afraid of the judgement. I ask the spirit of God to make the rest clearer to you my brother. stay blessed.

|Crime / Re: 13yr-Old Girl Narrates Her Ordeal With Ritualist by tooblessed: 10:33am On Oct 20, 2012|
We just have to pray that God should have mercy on our great country Nigeria. This story is true. I have a colleague in the office, whose 14 years old daughter and a neighbour's child are missing since last saturday along Ajah road. They were going to the church according to the story and entered a commercial bus and that was it till now. If you returning home in the night please take your time to observe the bus you want to join. This thing is real and happening. Thank God for your life Emmanuella.

|Romance / Re: Do You Believe Pastors Prediction On Life Partners by tooblessed: 4:14pm On Sep 03, 2012|
Yes! You can still move on bros. If you still want to try begging for the last time go ahead. If you were faithful in that relationship maybe God is saving you from some bigger trouble ahead. I will advise you find a place and cry out you heart. Tears have a way of healing and after that move on with your life. But I can't understand why some mothers wouldn't allow their children to choose who they want to spend their life with. Don't marry because your pastor says he/she is the person, marry because you have the conviction that, this is the person you can live with. period.
