Giving Tuesday Message from 1 Corinthians 13 KJV

And the Greatest is Charity

1. Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
2. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
3. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

4. Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5. Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6. Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7. Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

8. Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
9. For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.
10. But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.
11. When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
12. For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13. And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

~ 1 Corinthians 13 KJV

Let Us Stop Hypocritical Stupidity

Let Us Stop Hypocritical Stupidity

The worst problem affecting sustainable human development in Nigeria is not political corruption, but lack of education or lack of intellectual comprehension of our existential realities. And lest we forget, lack of education does not mean not going to formal school. Because you can have a degree and still be uneducated which is very common in Nigeria. Like I illustrated once that I have seen better parenting among sheep than among many Nigerian parents.

Poor rational thought is what makes someone to act irrationally and be corrupt in human conduct and be an idiot. I see many idiots from the street to the internet, even those I call corporate idiots, especially among the multitudes who claim to be "Christian", but their thinking and behaviour are contrary to their claim. Following the Beatitudes as preached and practiced by our Lord, Saviour and Messiah Jesus Christ is more than enough for us to breathe and create a better and greater human community. But only the educated can do so.

The uneducated remain intellectually immature and insecure.

It is hypocritical stupidity to be name dropping God and saying " Click Like" or "Type Amen" when you don't practice the TRUTH and telling lies has become a normal lifestyle.

Lest we forget, what Jesus Chris said: in Matthew 7:16 "By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?"
Anything contrary is falsehood.
Let us stop hypocritical stupidity.

Almighty God is Our Everlasting Light

Almighty God is our everlasting light
That shines brightest even in the darkest night.
Almighty God is the light of the world
That never goes out
The sun that does not set
Oh, Lord! Make my life shine for the whole world to see
The beautiful and wonderful things you are doing for me
And give you all the glory
For I shall tell them my story
And the whole world will know my testimony.

Hallelujah! Hallelujah!! Hallelujah!!!

What Will Be Your Legacy in the End?

What will be your legacy in the end?
The legacy of grace or the legacy of disgrace?

What have you contributed to the human race?
A life of falsehood or a life of honesty?
Anyone who lives in fear of the Truth is the most insecure human on earth.

The wealthiest nations on earth are not the countries building skyscrapers and towers kissing the clouds, but those building lives of beauty, dignity, integrity and nobility.

America and the UK are not among the wealthiest nations on earth.
A survey recently revealed that 69 percent of Americans have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts. And more than 48 million Americans are living in poverty.

The lives we have failed to build yesterday have become the antisocial psychos and sickos who are the criminals and terrorists destroying lives and properties today.
The millions of underprivileged children we failed to educate a decade ago later became the poor fathers and mothers of majority of the street urchins and criminals attacking and robbing people in our towns and cities.

Is it not stupid to leave your children in the care of housemaids you fail to send to school?
And you tell the illiterate housemaids to bathe and feed your children.
If you fail to educate your housemaid, how can she communicate with your children?
No wonder you are raising children with unusual behavior.

A middle class family in Lagos moved into their new duplex on the outskirts of Lagos city. But their mansion was in the midst of a ghetto with poverty stricken families who breed kids they cannot feed. The middle class family lived behind their iron gates and high walls and never interacted with the poor families around them.  But one fateful day, their mansion was on fire caused by an electrical fault in the night. They could not put out the fire and were screaming for help. But the poor people around their house were reluctant to respond, because they never communicated with them before. Their mansion was destroyed by the fire with their cars and other properties and they were lucky to escape from the fire. They became homeless and ended up in a tenement house in the ghetto. That was the first time they interacted closely with their poor neighbors.

A person without any social responsibility has no worthy legacy.

"Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire".
~Matthew 7:19, Holy Bible.

If You Don't keep the Commandments of Jesus Christ, You Are Not a Christian

Spiritual ignorance kills.
The same terrible mistake that the people of Jesus Christ made by their ignorance of him as The Messiah majority of so called Christians are still making today. And I ask: are they really Christians or just church goers?
Do they read the Holy Bible well or they read it upside down?
To make understanding our Lord Jesus Christ easier, study Matthew 5, 7 and 25.

Don't Play Church in Conceit and Deceit

Don't Play Church in Conceit and Deceit 

Don't play "Church" to give the impression of being a "Christian", yet you don't practice Christianity.

Going to church is not Christianity.
Obeying the commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ is the true Christianity.

If you have bitterness out of envy, jealousy, greed and hatred without repentance you are not a Christian.
If you tell evil lies against anyone, you are not a Christian.
If you refuse to pay your debts to someone, you are not a Christian.
If you are cheating someone, you are not a Christian.
If you are disrespecting someone, you are not a Christian.
If you are disrespectful, unfaithful and ungrateful, you are not a Christian.
If you are maltreating someone, you are not a Christian.
If you continue to be a drunkard, you are not a Christian.
If you continue to sin in rebellion against God, you are not a Christian.
If you have stolen and taken what is not yours, you are not a Christian.
If you are plotting and working against the progress and success of someone, you are not a Christian.

A true Christian is honest and transparent.
A true Christian obeys the commandments of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Anything contrary to this is falsehood.

Matthew 15:8 "'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me..

Majority of Nigerian Pastors Don't Understand the Holy Scriptures

Majority of Nigerian Pastors Don't Understand the Holy Scriptures

If you know the sacred scriptures of the Holy Bible very well and the life of our Lord, Saviour and Messiah Jesus Christ, you can see that majority of Nigerians claiming and professing that they are Christian pastors and ministers don't understand the scriptures. And that is why their congregants and followers go to church, but behave like pagans.

The Holy Bible clearly identified them in the following chapters.

2 Timothy 3:5:
"Having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people."

Hosea 4:6:
"My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. "Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.'

True Christianity is transparent.
You cannot be dishonest in conceit and deceit and still claim to be a Christian.
You are not a Christian.
You are a fraud.

You cannot claim and profess to be a Christian pastor or minister and still be an apologist for liars, crooks and rogues in government and private business.

Which scriptures are you practicing?
What our Lord Jesus Christ said is clear.
" If you love me, keep my commandments."~ John 14:15.
Therefore, you don't, you are not of Christ.
There is nothing more to say, because that's what Jesus Christ said.
And the Holy Bible is clear. So, don't be deceived.
2 Timothy 3:5
"Having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people".
