Brainwashed Christians Abound.




I don't know where certain people got certain beliefs from. Some weeks ago I went after something I seriously needed. I prayed about it. My loved ones prayed about it. One loved one said "Come and see pastor A, let him pray for you". I went to see Pastor A who immediately squeezed his eyes shut and shuddered as if he was being exorcised then suddenly his eyes flew open and he looked me in mine and calmly said "You won't get it". He expected trepidation from me but I only chuckled and asked him "Why?"  He was disappointed in my casual reaction to his prophecy of doom. Of course he must have expected me to panic, and fall on my knees, and cry, and ask what I needed to do. Regardless he prayed for me and gave me some psalms etc etc etc and eventually said I would get it. 
       Then another loved one said "Go and see pastor B, let him pray for you". I resisted and was practically hauled to pastor B who prayed for me and said all was well. Then a few days later someone said they told Pastor C who was now fasting on my behalf. Eventually I got it and each one of them asked me to call their pastor and say Thank You. 
       Whossai!!! I asked them how they knew who did it biko? Or was the mouth I used to pray to my own God not big enough? Was the faith of neutral third parties who had no real business with me greater than mine in receiving my own heart's desire? Yeah right. Unu hapu m aka jor. Free me!

When I read Charly Boy's post I smiled. Many people may not like him, and I find him strange. Yet on this one, I totally agree. Please read and share your thoughts. 


"Call me names, think what you may of the Charly Boy brand, na for your pocket! I no send you! I will always say what I want to say and how I want to say it regardless of the many fake people I offend. Gbam!

There is so much hypocrisy/’fakeness’ going on in this goddamn country it’s incredible. As a nation, we have sacrificed patriotism on the altar of religion; looking at America, their patriotism supercedes religion, skin colour or economic background.

I was so tickled by some people’s comments when I penned down my personal opinion on Pastor Adeboye’s yarns as to what constitutes a good wife/husband.

Aside from the mass unemployment, ignorance and poverty that abounds, Naija I believe is the Genesis of this Pentecostal influence across Africa. I know that many would do anything to run away from the excruciating poverty my people are witnessing even if they have to speak in tongues and most Pastors are happily taking advantage of the situation. There is God o!!

A lot of us have been brainwashed on how to worship God as some churches now come up with different gimmicks. It is not surprising to see people attend church rituals involving frantic falls as if grasped by epileptic seizures, forming attack by the spirits. Yes, most of these dramatics are paid for, like the Nollywood actor who claimed that the devil exited his body through his foot.  Now, some parents are praying for their sick children at home instead of seeking medical attention; or chaining children to enable the pastors cast out demons. Many women are caught having sex with pastors in corners or found spending more time catering to their pastors. How about husbands who have lost their wives totally to randy, horny and perverted pastors? Yes, what about the ones who can’t hold down a marriage, when me wey dem talk say I dey craze, don collect 39 years for one woman hand. Kai! The list goes on.

I am not suggesting that all Men of God are tainted, but out of a hundred you may not find 4 that live what they preach, the rest are just taking advantage of our religious ignorance. Would it surprise you to know that I have read the Bible cover to cover over 20 times? So I know more than I make out! I know that true men of God do not misquote the Bible. It’s only demons who misquote or misapply the Bible in some way. I know that God cannot punish us if we don’t pay tithe to our church because it is the goodness of our hearts that interest God more than physical and financial disposition. I know that true men of God cannot promise us happiness and prosperity, all of that is a fortune-teller’s lie; there is nothing in the bible about any “medium” that God uses to deliver such blessing. When I was growing up, men of God were renowned for their simple lifestyles. They endured the hardships the natives suffered in a bid to impart in them the knowledge of Jesus Christ and the Word of God. The legacy of these humble men have since been overtaken by conmen seeking to get rich through donations and wayo tactics as they mesmerize and swindle unsuspecting religious Mugus.

Fake Christians should go and read Matthew 21:22 which says “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive”. This, like many other similar verses in the New Testament, clearly explains that a man must have no latent doubt in his heart but must have absolute trust in the power and good will of God. Meaning that it is not the Pastor’s prayer that sets one free from spiritual bondages but first and foremost one´s faith in Jesus Christ. Nowhere is it stated in the Bible that, prayers and miracles must be done in exchange for money, biko, because salvation is for free and for everyone. Our mumu never do?

It is unfortunate that while some churches minister to the spiritual, educational and economic needs of people, others use the same gospel fraudulently/intelligently to acquire wealth out of the destitution of the poor. Even more annoying are those who have the answers under their very noses, but who driven by these manipulations still abide blindly to such fake doctrines. At the end of the day, I know that how a man chooses to worship his God is up to him. Worshippers are not forced to be followers in any of these churches; they follow some of these useless “men of God” of their own accord, thereby making the pastor’s wealth acquisition fairly legal. However, Christians should always have this in the back of their minds. False Christians and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive. Are you a learner? Look that your pastor well well o. Man of God my Ass. End time tins!"

  2. Hi everyone, i have so missed u all!! Glad to be back!!

    The major problem with 'islam' as practiced in most of nigeria (and the world) is that of illiteracy; we christians are slowly towing that line of in spite the level of education among the 'faithful'.

    1. Nope,i strongly disagree. Islam the world over aren't illiterate. Don't perceive Islam with what's happening up North in Nig. The UAE,European Muslims,American Muslims gives credence to the fact that Islam isn't associated with illiteracy.

      And for the record, the opposite of Islam isn't Christianity. That one isn't a Muslim doesn't automatically make one a Christian and vice versa.

  3. To think I scrolled past his write up on other blogs. This is a nice read and he really hit the nail on the head. We as humans are responsible for ourselves and should be able to read and understand the Word on our own. Depending on just the interpretations of pastors or some acclaimed men of god has caused more harm than good.Most of us prefer to be led blindly rather than using our intuition.

    A lot of laziness on the part of man.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super

After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.

Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…

Shhhhhhh....

I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!

Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on).
