Joy Isi Bewaji Calls BS On The Halleluyah Challenge.












So the Halleluyah Challenge is eliciting so many mixed reactions. Most people have taken issue to the number of celebrities going there to "mark register" and distracting people who really want to worship. 

But that's not Joy's problem with the whole thing. You've read what she has to say. Do you agree with her?

Angry as she sounds, I actually agree with most of the points she's making. Unfortunately though, she seems to be getting it all wrong, nobody ever said the #HalleluyahChallenge was about praying for Nigeria. I wonder where she got that idea...

Anyways, the participants continue to grow in number. Do you think people genuinely want this, or just hopping on th band wagon as usual?

  1. I believe she can lambast the general attitude of Nigerians without ridiculing a religious movement. She is waxing lyrical because it's a hallelujah challenge but remained anonymous during ice bucket challenge and many other social media activities for that matter. Funny how people upgrade their criticism game when they sense a religious uprising. I get the point in the article but the way she went about it is really not the best. As much as she knows that prayer alone can't solve the problems of Nigeria, I hope she knows that her rant can't either. bless her heart.

    2. Lol.

      She made sense, but didn't present her case the proper way. The whole essence of religion or a religious activity doesn't produce the required results as we expect it to, especially in this country. We have distinction in praising GOD but fail woefully when it comes to doing HIS Will. How many of us have passed in this? Praising GOD and obeying HIS Commands? Almost no one, and that's the major reason we're all in a mess. Even JESUS said those in this category are "workers of iniquity" (Matt 7: 21-23).

      But then, we still have to praise GOD, we still have to thank HIM, we should glorify HIS HOLY NAME. But in doing so, in shouting "Hallelujah", we have to remember that our immediate environment is in a total mess and we MUST do something about it. We must learn to be better humans after the praise and worship; that's what GOD requires of us.

  2. I am the anon from the previous post. Kudos to this lady, beautifully written!! This hallelujah challenge irritates me because ppl are just hopping on the band wagon like u said Thelma bcos they believe in magic instead of actually practicing Christianity which is far beyond 'oh, I was so hungry & sharwama fell from the sky or money appeared in my acct wen I was broke'. That is mockery of God!! It is disgusting the level at which Nathaniel keeps feeding gullible ppl with fabricated testimonies which 'supposedly' occurred bcos of his hallelujah challenge just for more views. I think this country will move forward if ppl wake up & stop depending on religion for everything. Use ur God given brain & think. With the level at which Nigerians carry religion, one wud think the country will be a Dubai by now. Smh. I even saw on IG Ini Edo giving out recharge cards to ppl who dont have data to participate.Lmao. Celebs playing a fast one, using this challenge to sell their market. Mockery!!! P.s- not all 50k ppl that tune in are actually participating, some ar just there out of curiosity.

    1. Yeah.... fabricated testimonies... more like unbelievable, incomprehensible and almost impossible testimonies... those re the kinds praise provokes.
      Because tell me... what scientific or logical theory can prove how praise can break you out of jail(Imagine all Michael scofield had to go through and praise would break chains and open the doors JUST LIKE THAT?!)
      Or that 5 loaves of bread dand 12 Fishes
      would feed 5000 by just lifting it to God and saying a prayer of praise.
      Yeah... he uses the seemingly foolish things of this world to confound the wise.

      Joy is just reiterating one part of what we already know. Faith without work is dead. So work like you didn't pray at all and praise him like everything depends on it.
      All in all... y'all are entitled to your opinion.

  3. If anyone knows her,tell her sasha bone said she should have a seat!

    Did anyone say Hallelujah Challenge was to "fix Nig"? Everyone always trying to link anything you do into "the problems of Nig". Is it not possible to praise ur God in the midst of a storm. She should pls have several seats..

    Her that isn't doing Hallelujah Challenge, how has it helped Nig (or whatever she's trying to imply). Infact she should just lie down...

  5. She reminds me of the serpent when he was presenting the apple to Eve in the garden of Eden.There's a high level of deception in her write up.She writes as if she's not making a mockery of the Halleluyah challenge but we can read through this deception.I have one sincere prayer for her,may God show himself strong and mighty to her and may she see the light of Christ

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
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
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.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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!
So who is interested? 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). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancΓ©? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
