|Education / Re: 10 Most Influential Books Of All Time by udoh2k: 3:23pm On Mar 10, 2019|
THE MOST AMAZING BOOK!
Compiled from the teachings of David Brandt Berg
Whether you accept and believe in its teachings or not, it cannot be denied that the Bible is the most remarkable, amazing and absolutely UNIQUE book that has ever been written! Of course, many people today sort of pooh-pooh and dismiss it because they cannot help but associate the Bible with the largely do-nothing Christianity that they have seen, and they figure, "If THAT'S the kind of religion the Bible teaches, then no thanks!--It's not for me!"
But if you realize that the religion of LOVE that Jesus TAUGHT, and the religious TRADITIONS that many Christians today PRACTICE have little or nothing to do with each other, then you can approach the Bible with out prejudice. If you have an OPEN mind and are sincerely SEARCHING for the TRUTH, you can sweep away all of man's false preconceived interpretations and you can delve down to the beautiful FOUNDATION of the Bible and see the true plan and how things are SUPPOSED to be! You will then discover that the Bible is NOT merely some kind of religious rulebook, but that it is the most wonderful, supernatural, miraculous, amazing, marvelous Book in the whole World!--Which has the answers to EVERYTHING!--WHERE we came from, HOW we got here, WHY we're here, how to SURVIVE and be HAPPY while here, and how to love and have happiness FOREVER!
But before deciding whether or not to accept and believe in this amazing Book, consider the following seven facts that set it aside as a truly UNIQUE Volume:
1.)The Bible is unique in its CONTINUITY.--It was written over a 1,500 YEAR time-span by over 40 authors from every walk of life, including kings, peasants, philosophers, fishermen, shepherds, soldiers, poets, statesmen, scholars, etc.! Nevertheless, from beginning to end, its authors spoke on hundreds of controversial subjects with harmony and continuity, outlining one unfolding story: God's LOVE for man!
2.) The Bible has been READ BY MORE PEOPLE than ANY other book! It has out-sold every book that has ever been written and it STILL sells more copies every year than any other book in the World! But of course in the best-sellers lists they don't dare acknowledge that, that in spite of all man's writings and foolishness and fiction and ridiculous interpretations of history and reality, the BIBLE still out-sells them all! Another unique and related fact is that the Bible was the FIRST major book ever to be printed, on Gutenberg's press.
3) The Bible has been TRANSLATED and PUBLISHED IN MORE LANGUAGES than ANY other book in existence!--As far back as 1966 the WHOLE Bible had appeared in 240 languages and dialects, and one or more of its books appeared in 739 additional ones!
4) The Bible, compared with all other ancient writings, has MORE MANUSCRIPT EVIDENCE than any TEN pieces of classical literature COMBINED! Although originally written on perishable materials, having to be re-copied by hand for thousands of years before the invention of the printing press, it's style, correctness and accuracy has been preserved as no other book in all History! The Jews had special classes of scholars within their culture whose sole duty was to preserve and transmit the books of the Bible with PERFECT accuracy, counting the very consonants, vowels, syllables and words per manuscript as a means of double-checking. Literally THOUSANDS of ancient manuscripts in the original languages have been unearthed which PROVE, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the Scriptures have come down through the ages to us just as they were originally written!
5) The Bible has WITHSTOOD VICIOUS ATTACKS by its enemies as no other book. Many have tried to burn it, destroy it and outlaw it, from the days of the Roman emperors to some present-day anti-Christ countries. Its very existence today and the fact that its teachings and Truths have been preserved despite the countless campaigns and tirades against it is in itself MIRACULOUS!
6) Discovery after discovery by MODERN ARCHAEOLOGISTS have CONFIRMED and PROVEN the Bible's absolute accuracy and have proven it to be a source of HISTORY. Archaeologists following Old Testament references have rediscovered whole nations and resurrected entire peoples that the skeptics and critics once said were non-existent or imaginary. In fact, it can be stated categorically that NOT ONE archaeological discovery has EVER contradicted or cast doubt on a Biblical reference--all have CONFIRMED its accuracy!
7.)The Bible is the ONLY volume ever produced which contains a large amount of PROPHECIES accurately predicting the future of individual nations, peoples, cities, and the coming of One Who was to be the Messiah! Although the ancient world had many different devices for determining the future, NOWHERE in all of Greek and Latin literature can there be found ANY real specific prophecy of a great Historic event to come in the distant future. But the BIBLE is FULL of countless, detailed, specific prophecies, all of which have been miraculously FULFILLED and come true--except, of course, the final ENDTIME prophecies which are either to be fulfilled in the near future or are coming to pass right NOW!
What an AMAZING and REMARKABLE Book! Yet so many people today, who consider them selves so smart and so knowledgeable, ignore the Bible completely! Time and time again we talk to people who've been through years of college and university and have read hundreds and hundreds of books--huge tomes and volumes of textbooks, religious books, philosophical books and ALL kinds of books--yet have never even cracked open the Bible, the most fascinating Book in the World!--In which you can find almost ANYTHING: Drama, love, hate, peace, war, romance, poetry, prophecy, history, mystery, etc., etc.!
Just think about it: Words of wisdom from THOUSANDS of years ago, from the days before Moses! It's such an IMPORTANT Book and one of the OLDEST Books in the World, yet a lot of "educated" people don't even bother to read it! They waste time on all of their complicated and confused theories while neglecting the very Words of Life!
If you were going on a long journey and didn't already know the way, you would bring along a MAP, wouldn't you?--Well, you ARE on a long journey, and the One Who knows the way has instructed some of His men to draw a detailed map so you won't get lost and so you can make it safely to your final destination! To say you don't have time to read God's Map, the Bible, is like saying, "Well, I'm in such a HURRY to get there I don't have TIME to look at the MAP!"--But if you'll just take the Bible and simply read it, believe it and follow it, you will be on the right road and wind up at the right place!
And that is actually the GREATEST proof that the Bible really is the miraculous, supernatural Word of God Himself--it WORKS! So why not TRY it!--It's the greatest, most enduring, wisest, most truthful Book in the whole World that you can really TRUST! I'm sure that you will find it an absolutely inexhaustible source of wisdom and knowledge, out of which you will constantly find "treasures new and old"!--Beautiful! (Mt.13:52)
Of course the MOST wonderful thing about the Bible is that, through its Words, we can get to know its AUTHOR!--For the Bible is GOD'S GREAT LOVE LETTER to us! Its Life-giving Words make it the GREATEST Book in the World, with the only Author in the World that can guarantee life and love and happiness and Heaven forever through simply reading it and believing in its main Character, the One Who loved us so much that He gave His Own Life to save us--JESUS CHRIST, the Son of God!
So take the Bible and sincerely pray, "OPEN Thou mine eyes, that I may behold WONDEROUS things out of Thy Word!" (Ps.119:18)--But don't get bogged down in the "begats" and genealogies of Genesis, nor the Jewish History and ancient past of much of the Old Testament that is over and done with! Read the NEW TESTAMENT and the wonderful Words of JESUS in the GOSPELS--not as fairy tales of the PAST, but as GOD'S WORD for YOU TODAY--and see how inspiring, uplifting, feeding and encouraging the Truth of the Word of God can be! In the beautiful GOSPEL OF JOHN particularly, you will find the spiritual depths of the Love of God and His Salvation for you!
Have YOU received God's Love through JESUS? Have YOU tasted the wonderful, soulsatisfying waters of His wonderful Word? If not, receive Jesus into your heart personally by simply ASKING Him to come into your life, to forgive you of all your sins and give you His Love and peace and free gift of eternal life!--Then you can not only READ His Word with understanding, but you'll have the LOVE and the STRENGTH to OBEY it and to SHARE His Truth and Love with OTHERS who need them too!

|Religion / Re: Pope Francis Requests Roman Catholic Priests Be Given The Right To Get Married by udoh2k: 12:43pm On Nov 04, 2017|
You are very right. The said first pope, Peter, got married. There hv bn issues of sxxual sins against some priest. Some hv (hidden)Children born outside wedlog while serving as priests. Preceding popes hv tried to defend, deny or address these. The Bible never prohibit religious leaders from getting married but encouraged them to be husband of one wife, rule his family well and bringing his children under good behaviour.
This will help the priest against sxxual temptation and to serve God in pure heart.

|Religion / Re: Bishopric crisis: Mbaise Catholics say no to the Pope by udoh2k: 9:51am On Jul 01, 2017|
Two organizations that are said to be most organised are the military and the catholic church.
The Igbo's shd not allow tribalism to kill the church. of the 3 major tribes in Nigeria, the Igbo has the highest percentage of Christianity. In fact they claim Jewish.
Leadership in Christianity is service; to be servant not master. Obedience to higher authority (political or ecclesiastical) is a bible injunction. Humility is christian virtue. Rebellion is Satan's nature.
Let's sheath the sword and fight our common enemies... sin, Satan and self.
|Religion / Re: Forbes: Net Worth Of Pastor Adeboye Of RCCG Is 39 To 65 Million Dollars by udoh2k: 3:19pm On Jun 06, 2017|
Nigerians like to hear big figures so that they can talk and curse and blame. The Man of God does not eat more than his stomach can take. He does not travel except he has appointment organised by his church. The church takes care of his lodge and accommodation, and he can only sleep in one foam and a corner of the room.
What expensive thing do you see him wear?
Let the man of God be. Ignore all this propaganda from the pit of Hell.
|Romance / Re: I'm A Christian In Love With A Muslim Friend by udoh2k: 1:12pm On May 24, 2017|
Bros, this is not true love. True love does not torture.
True love does not take all part of you, but gives you allowance (allowance to reason, allowance to stay apart for a while without feeling that you have missed too much).
This is emotion that makes people kill themselves, pour acid, take poison etc when one partner 'disappoints'.
This is the type of 'love' that breaks heart.
This type of emotion dies slowly after s3x.
My argument is not about religion but the "pressure from within you". It's not real.
However,if you are a Christian, the injunctions are crystal clear to guide you.

|Career / Re: Difference Between Computer Science And Computer Engineering Course? by udoh2k: 12:48pm On Apr 03, 2017|
Computer Engineering is more or less a branch of Electronic Engineering. U will do more of elect/elect courses. Emphasis is on hardware maintenance and repairs.
Computer Science is more or less a branch of mathematics. You will do more of mathematics and programming. Emphasis is on Software.
In today's world which ever u choose, try to know a bit of both. Try to understand (on ur own) the basic of how to maintain a system; how to write simple software that works...programming; how to explain/advise people on acquisition of computer technology...system analysis.
Any where u would work, they will need these 3 skills.
NB. Most people that do computer in school, shy away from programming. If u face it, u will be distinguished.

|Business / Re: Can CBN Sustain The Black Market Onslaught? by udoh2k: 8:43pm On Mar 05, 2017|
Let's do small math for lay man understanding
daily prod= 2 million barrel per day
cost of oil = 50$
Total per day= 2 x 50 = $100m
Per week (5 working day) = $500m
So CBN rolling out 530m per week is not sustainable. EXCEPT IF DEM DEY SELL CRUDE 7 DAYS A WEEK OR PRODUCTION INCREASE OR CRUDE PRICE INCREASE
|Religion / Re: What Will Become Of Those Who Have Died Before The Birth Of Christ? by udoh2k: 8:07pm On Mar 05, 2017|
1. The Jews who know/have the Law will be judged by the law.
2. The gentile who do know God nor the Law will be judged by their conscience.
Read ROM 2:11 to d end.
3. Since Jesus has come, God has overlooked the ignorance of the Law by the gentiles and command/required every one to be saved thru Jesus Christ. ACTS 17:30-31
There4 no one has any excuse then and now. Everyone will judged by Christ and whosoever name is not found in the book life will be cast in hell fire. Rev 20:15

Am surprised by d number of like. Download and read the act before u speak or like. The law passed in 2007 was to create the FRCN not the regulation it self. The FRCN was empowered to make regulation for the corporate bodies and these regulations hv bn under drafting since then and finalized and release in 2016. www.financialreportingcouncil.gov.ng/news-center/frc-releases-draft-national-code-of-corporate-governance/
It is like CBN coming up with regulation for banks in 2016 and we attribute it to when CBN was created.
