I am firmly against the idea that religion and logic don’t go together. It is very lazy and an incredibly dangerous idea to perpetuate. It also seems like a condescending idea peddled by us atheists to seem superior to the religious but ALSO a condescending idea peddled by religious people (mostly christians tbh) to seem…

Yesterday, I woke up to a video on my Facebook timeline, that I’d been tagged in, of a child being horrifically abused by her care giver. I was horrified to say the least. I was mad as hell!!! So many bad emotions arose in me, and all I could think of was what I would…

Contradicting interpretations are a part of Christianity. Some denominations don’t even believe there’s such a place as hell where God sends people to a destiny of eternal damnation and suffering. When presented with scriptural backing, they counter attack with scriptures of their own. Sometimes, denominations under Christianity seem like factions of a political party who pose…

As a young practicing Christian, who is by no means devoid of other sins, the one sin that has been a cause of constant worry for me is pre-marital sex. In reality, I could wake up one morning and give up drinking, give up the occasional puff of ‘loud’, love my neighbor, avoid lying and…

Think BIG!

Hey you! Yes you. You want to be rich? Cutting corners and scheming in search of fast riches? Labouring all your life to save for retirement that may or may not come? You’re thinking too small. Think BIG! Think true wealth. Do not store up for yourself treasures on Earth, where thieves can break in…

The story of ‘The Prodigal Son‘ is a definite favourite among Christians. We love it! I love it too because it’s the most explicit description of God’s extraordinary grace. And the lesson is enough to cause any that have gone astray to boldly arise and return to the Father, whose arms are always open, and…

Èshù: a name generally rebuked by all of Christian faith. Rightfully so, I must add. Why is that? Because Èshù is the Devil or Satan according to the Yorùbá translation of the Bible. S. A. Crowther, who was responsible for the translation around the mid nineteenth century, chose Èshù to be the Yorùbá equivalent of…

The first people to be called Christians were first called “disciples” of Jesus Christ (Acts 11:26). A disciple can be best defined as a student/follower of a Teacher/Leader, who studies a discipline (profession) to gain mastery over it and become equipped to pass on the training to others. The term is mostly used in a…

With the Independence day celebration over, Nigerians are still disillusioned about a lot of things.  Some people have taken it upon themselves to debate every issue about the government and the country while others have decided to look the other way because they believe it does not concern them. Whether Christians should be in politics…

God hates sin! We know this. We know also that whatever is not done of faith is sin (Rom 14:23). That is a lot of things we do and take for granted. As humans, we constantly find ourselves worrying. This is sin. Jesus said clearly “do not worry” (Matt 6:25). We are often told that…

Sounds ridiculous right? But that’s exactly what we say in our hearts when we wrestle with God about preserving ourselves, rather than yielding wholly to Him. We want His wisdom alright, but we don’t want to lose the ‘wisdom’ we already have. Rather than present a blank slate for God to impress His image, we…

As children of God, as the Bride of Christ, as His very own Body and as Friends of the King of kings, we are privileged to enjoy a special intimacy with God… unlike His enemies or mockers. Jesus said that when we believe and obey, showing our love to Him, He and His Father will…

“For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou keep the law: but if though be a breaker of the law, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision” (Romans 2:25). I’ve moved on to reading the Book of Romans, and this verse really stuck out to me. Here, Paul is speaking to the Jews in Rome, who glory in their…
