“My dear turtle,” laughed the scorpion, “if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?”
“You’re right!” reasoned the turtle. “Hop on!” The scorpion climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the turtle a mighty sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the turtle resignedly said:
“Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there would be no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it?”
“It has nothing to do with logic,” the drowning scorpion sadly replied.
“IT IS JUST MY CHARACTER.”
So it is with some humans. No matter how nice or good you maybe to them, it is just in their nature and character to sting (betray, rob, cheat, hurt, kill, blackmail etc) for no reason.

I prayed to God to give me a husband. Like every born again Christian lady I wanted a good Christian man and being very popular in my Headquarters church, I had the mindset that a certain group of people would likely walk up to me and say “the Lord says you are the bone of my bone yada yadayada” but…it didn’t happen! I became confused and wondered ‘how come’! I appear on all the screens in the church to give the church news more than anyone else in my department and I would always get compliments after the service but I wasn’t getting marriage proposals! Kilode! Don’t get me wrong I wasn’t doing it for marriage but in my little mind as a human being I just felt it would put me in a better position to get a “Bro” to take me off the single’s market! When I realized it wasn’t working I decided to just hold on to God for God more and take my mind off getting a spouse by just being on screens speaking grammar.
Bear in mind biko there were guys coming to try to start something with me but after praying and being patient I discover stuff about them and the whole thing goes down the drain. Let me point out at this stage that I don’t seek prophets or prophecies I just pray on my own and really its being a very revealing time! There was a brother in church who left me cosafter he asked for sex and I said no he told me to go increase my boobs and bum! He broke off with me on that note but we know why he did don’t we! Lol,,, I wish that brother could see me now!
At this point I had made up my mind to not marry any guy from my church as I felt they were just like this guy, life did go on and I continued to work pray and serve, I made friends with a very quiet guy in church who was also a member of my department and I told him my experience with the guy in church. He only told me to be careful of some brothers in church as their intentions were not really sincere, he was a good friend and not my type anyways so it was safe talking to him, towards the end of the year he started chatting me in a much friendlier way! I be woman nau so I suspected where he was headed but sine he was not ‘my type’ I just played dumb and made him feel dumber in a way, eyah! Fast forward months later we started dating, I decided to keep this relationship a secret from my friends as I was tired of telling them I have some one and later it’s over,,,it worked! Depending on the pattern of events in your life, it’s good to know when to share certain things and whom to share them with for me sharing my plans with people before I do them usually ends in the failure of the ‘intended plan’,,, I believe someone can relate with me.
I am not writing this to show off or rub some things in anyone’s face trust me I have nothing to boast of save the grace of God, I just want to share my story and hopefully it encourages someone or we can all learn from each other. Now let me put dates to my story…I joined this church in 2011, started this relationship in 2013 say between January to march, told the pastor in December, started marriage counseling in March till August 2014, got married in 2016 at the young age of 34!

When Changing Your Mind is Not a bad Thing: That Time I Called Off My Wedding (diary of a Naija girl).
Initially I never thought of calling off the wedding, I told myself to look away, this too will pass. But when I could not sleep that night and began to pray, it dawned on me that this would be my life. Sleepless nights, unhappiness, lack of trust, crying and praying to calm the storm I created, the possibilities of cheating on my part and the expectation of cheating on his part. I thought about people and money that had been invested, I almost changed my mind but God strengthened my resolve.
I told him it was over. He tried to beg me to reconsider but even he couldn’t put much effort into it. My family, his family and our friends tried to convince me to change my mind, but when I began to refund people’s Aso-Ebi money, they finally accepted there was not going to be a wedding that year. I felt complete relief, like a heavy load had suddenly being lifted off me. Were there moments of remorse and regret? Yes. But they passed quickly, because I had never been more sure of a decision.

"Wisdom is the principal thing and in all thy getting, get wisdom" ( Proverbs 4:7)
The Bible didn't say anointing was the principal thing. It said wisdom was the principal and in everything you get (including anointing) get wisdom.
Apostle Suleiman could have simply avoided this scandal by referring this convert to his wife's department or the women ministry.
You convert a stripper, a professional seductress and she wants your phone number, wisdom demands you give her your wife's number before she will dis-anoint you. Speaking in this tongues won't help you out in this case sir.
When it comes to lust of the flesh, the Bible in 2nd Timothy 2:22 said FLEE. Bible didn't say pray, or speak in tongues, or cast and bind, or counsel, the Bible said FLEE.
An ex stripper is professional seductress and you are a man of God, not a God of man. Man of God means, you are a man just like any other man. If you are in doubt, ask David the King. Ask Sampson, Ask Solomon. They were all anointed too.
As a man of God, the wise thing to do was to is flee or hand her over to your wife's ministry rather than opening communications with her. I'm sure she won't be asking your wife for money to set up business if you had stopped all communications with her.
Remember that "Evil communications corrupts good manners" ( 1st Corinthians 15:33). The problem began with opening that communication channel, it can lead to many things .
I do not believe all the things Miss Stephanie Otobo said, but I suspect the pastor must have had an 'inappropriate' relationship with this lady especially through their communications.
It's very possible that those video calls screen munched pictures were real, but this also means that the lady had her own game plan by screen munching and saving them.
This should be a lesson for other pastors and men of God.
Wisdom is the principal thing and in all thy getting, get wisdom.
