Our Inadequate Five Senses


If God says no to something, He means no! If someone says yes to what God says no to, that makes them a rebel. A rebel is an enemy of God, because a house divided against itself will not stand. If you are in agreement with an enemy of God, what does that make you?


All in the name of tolerance, what God has called an abomination, we call it divergent views! Our rationalizations can never make us right and God wrong. We make excuses for everything, just to make it right in out own eyes. What a pity!


God does not mince words when it comes to sin, He is unequivocal in stating His absolute intolerance for sin. In the same vein, He is crystal clear on the magnanimity of His love for us all. Since there is no one that deserves or has the right to God's Love, it makes us all Sinners who have been showered with boundless love by a Father who longs to fellowship with us once again.


Back to the previous, what we call civilization is turning out to be our greatest undoing yet. We humans are essentially selfish and we cannot truly love another selflessly unless we have experienced such selfless love ourselves by surrendering our lives to Jesus Christ.


As long as there is sin in the world, there will always be wars, famines, diseases, floods, name it, because the devil has perverted most of God's creation. We humans have this magnificent gift from God- Free Will. We have the power to choose what we believe and who we submit to.


It so happens that we often base our choices on empirical evidence which means what we can see, feel, touch, smell and hear. This gives room for deception because reality and fiction are subjective when the parameters for measuring are not reliable.


Feelings are volatile, they are here now and gone the next moment. That is why we experience mood-swings because feelings are flimsy, since they are based on what is happening around us anyway, and that is also constantly changing.


The problem arises when we want to see, feel, touch, hear and smell Jesus Christ before we surrender to Him, before we put our faith and trust in Him, before we embrace Him and fall in Love with Him. It doesn't work that way. In fact, doing all that will ensure only one thing, and that is we will never give our lives to Him.


Jesus Christ is not asking you to suspend your lives for Him, He wants to walk with you through it all. He takes no pleasure in turning you to a dummy while you follow Him mindlessly, what kind of God would that make Him? He wants you the way you are, then He will walk and work with you to become who He created you to be. Believe it, you didn't hapen here by a cosmic coincidence, you came to earth because He fashioned you out, and tailored you for a specific purpose.

Forgiveness 2.0 – Can you go back?

Forgiveness, just like Love, has definitions to varying degrees or like an onion—layers. I always thought I had the forgiveness thing locked down, yeah right! Just like the proverbial out of the blue, it hit me that I had just erased that part from memory and decided the type of forgiveness I wanted to extend. I found out that I couldn’t (or at least that’s what I had subconsciously agreed) go back if I had the chance. On my way home, it became evident that this sealed can of worms had been in the basement and it is already stinking. It took an interviewer’s probing questions for me to shed light on that chapter in my life’s story. Forgiveness is absolute, but just like everything else, we make it relative and as such varying standards abound. This means what I call forgiveness may not cut it for someone else. While my version of forgiveness may be shallow and warped, yours may be brutally honest. Ultimately, we are responsible for our versions of forgiveness, while it is in our best

LIF101 - POST NO BILL

I want to tell you a story, and in the next couple of minutes, I would appreciate if you could loan me your undivided attention. I promise to return it with interest; A child was born in an urban area in the heart of Lagos state almost 3 decades ago, attended about 5 primary schools, finally obtained a first school leaving certificate, from there on to just 1 secondary school, being a very brilliant and apt student, he obtained the necessary 5 O'Level credits in senior school certificate exams and got an average score in the university and tertiary matriculations exam. He got admitted to study Physics because they just had to put him somewhere because he knows somebody who knows somebody. Even though in his heart, he wanted to study Electronics and Computer Engineering because that's where his strength is, mechanization and electronics. The result? Instead of the standard 4 years, he ended up spending 8 years and still did not graduate. For those wondering how come, here

LIFE 101

Most of the years we spend within the four walls of the school environment were spent learning theories of how things work. How to analyze, solve problems given a few clues [symptoms], calculate, and read. However, when we finally leave the confines of those walls; we discover that we have spend one-third of our lives not preparing for the present simply because the school curriculum does not make provision for people-skills, time-management, emotional intelligence, entrepreneurship, financial intelligence, et al. We start school afresh once we step into the real world and the courses are very systematic because we take the examinations first, then the lesson; the direct opposite of the school we have been used to. Life is more that just a set of classes and some library of books, far bigger than what we have been made to believe. Great men/women of the world had just one thing in common; we never hear of their academic excellence- rather, we hear of what they did outside the w
