Stealing in the House of God

The Eighth Commandment, “Thou Shall Not Steal” is far from being observed by temple robbers, who are committed to stealing from worshippers, church offerings and tithes. While true congregants gather for weekly activities, they strike, even as the Scripture says “Let him that stole, steal no more, but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needs.” CHIJIOKE IREMEKA reports   It was a peaceful night when the children of God had gathered for a vigil,…

Why God embarks on aggressive forgiveness (2)

Did you notice why I call that parable, Running Father? Watch an old man running across the town, through the market and running with all his strength. Can you see embarrassment and how people would come out to watch what went wrong?

The will of God

  “Go ye into the world and preach the gospel…” Mark 16 verses 15 O many of us are selfish. We want to go to Heaven allalone. We want to ‘sneak’ into Heaven. Anyone who does not tell his friends, relatives, even his ‘enemies’ about the saving grace of Jesus Christ is simply selfish and wicked. No matter how we claim to love them, if we fail to preach to them or reach them, we do not love them at all. Some of us will not even mention Jesus to…

When a federal minister overreaches

People who do not know me erroneously think that it’s possible for any hirelings or whosoever to stop me by any means – whether through abuse or attack or howsoever – from talking or writing about my state and community of birth. No, it’s not possible. The more they abuse and attack me, the more I know that I’m making a valid point. Today, I’ll talk about an arrogant and despotic brother, his Hobbesian disposition, unlawful trespass to land, and illegal arrests and detention of innocent youths from our town…

Shall I tell this to the president?

They already own everything; they own our politics, our economy and our money. Even the CBN is being privatised and controlled by this cartel. The same cartel now wants to control the water we drink and the air we breathe to complete their vicious cycle of enslaving and subjugating us all. They don’t care about the future but only about the dark interest they represent. Unrestrained capitalism is evil and should be challenged. The media knows about this but will never write about it. Our elite knows about this but…
