--- Though some truth that can be quite hard to realise can be realised by comparison, yet I must say that every now and then we see grievous errors being made by comparing two very incomparable things.--- There are never enough reasons not to trust God. Whether you fail, you succeed, you get disappointed or anything else, they just can't be enough.--- Jesus said in John 7:24, "Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment." Righteous judgment is the judgment of God. Things are only right not because they look so but because the Word of God says so. Things are only evil not because they look so but because the Word of God says so. The Bible must guide our judgments in all things and nothing else.--- One of the saddest thing about the aggressiveness of this issue of same-sex marriage is that anyone, no matter how profane he or she is, who can come out and condemn it would seem brave and thus appear to us a hero of our most holy faith. Let's be careful. If the Devil went for the root of morality to throw the whole overboard, we should aim for the peak of the height of morality to retain it. God help us all. Amen.--- We humans are nothing. When we take a look at different things that nature possesses, starting from the most precious stone to the least valuable thing, you'd agree with me that dust would be somewhere about the bottom of the list and that is what we are made of. The only thing that makes us something is God's power evident in our existence making us of more value than the whole of creation put together. That is why Jesus says; "what shall it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?" We ought not to feel like nothing, but in feeling like something, we must never forget he who made us something. Therefore, give glory to God, now and always.--- For the church, I desire revival and not glamour.--- Sense of humour is a very valuable possession in life, if used appropriately and not confused for vain and coarse jokes. It should be taught as part of our curriculum. Perhaps.--- Knowledge is golden.--- if u most impact your world, there are many things to, but there are two major pitfalls you must avoid. 1. Never ever be reckless. 2. Never ever be fearful. Have faith in God.--- To every Christian out there who loves to listen to Christian reggae, Christian jazz, Christian rock, hip-praise (AKA gangster praise), and traditional clapping songs so as to forget your hymnbooks, my question is this, did Jesus sing? If yes what did he sing? Read Matthew 26:30 and Mark 14:26.--- Welcome to the age where human right is the insanity of same sex marriage, Christianity is prosperity, service to God is bloodshed and oppression, education is void of morals, and money is god. Under the gross darkness of this sombre skies, ask the average man what he thinks and though his eyes were open and his specs on, he'll still say "this is the age of enlightenment." But asking Jesus what he thinks, this is what he says "If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!" (Matthew 6:23). Therefore this is the age of great darkness. Don't just stand and look on, do something. ACT NOW!--- When there are too much doctrines in the church flying here and there, the good Christian needs, at such times, to withdraw into silence, and there, alone with his God say "many are the voices out there, but what do you say?" For, the doctrines of God are ever few. (Micah 6:8)--- We needn't be super humble people that shouldn't boast at all. All we need to do is to boast in the right things. Don't boast about wealth, don't boast about family, don't boast about achievements, don't boast about your learning, don't boast about fame, don't boast about friends, don't boast about the praise of men, and don't boast about your beauty or handsomeness. Don't boast about these. These are the wrong things. It is written "But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD."(Jeremiah 9:24). This is the right thing to boast in.--- Let no body who has any form of emotional fixation to any denomination think he loves the Lord Jesus the way he ought to and that is to say the least. "He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad." (Matthew 12:30). Our affection should tend to unite in purity and not divide. Why say "AG/Redeem/Living Faith... for life." Is that spirituality or fanatism? The answer is simple.--- "And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are... Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one." (John 17:11, 20-22) That was the prayer request of the Lord Jesus why don't we in word and deed say AMEN to that.--- Hear the voice that entreats you to things that are right in God's sight, whether it is the voice of the arch angel or the voice of Balaam's donkey. Never despise the word even if the vessel were contemptible.--- If excuses were coins, beggars too would give.--- I take particular interest in the young ones for I'm sure that if they be we'll brought up, no matter how deep into the mire, we, in our foolishness, may drag the society into, they can bring it all the way back up. If they be well brought up.--- The secret of knowing much is forgetting little.--- If necessity is the mother of invention, what is the father? I suppose creativity is the father, because necessity must meet with creativity before we have invention.--- God too places monetary value on time (Exodus 21:18-19). Therefore, don't take it lightly with anyone who wastes your time. Anyone including yourself.--- Many, when praying for a happy home, wishing never to hear a bad news would pray for security, safety, welfare, etc. But what bad news is worse than the lack of virtue in a home or the absence of the love of it.--- When I look at great leaders and great personalities, including Dr. Ben Carson, and see the roles their mothers played in their lives, I say most confidently that the problems of the present times are rooted in the foolishness of the feminism of the past, and the problem of tomorrow would rooted in the foolishness of the feminism of the present. But vain women would still cling to it supposing that it increases their status and the whole world suffers for it. Truly great women are never publicly celebrated though we celebrate the great minds and personalities they brought up.--- A good life is lived in a struggle for a right balance.--- It is in our habit to leave important questions unanswered. You could go through an online forum and find a long thread of how people seek to answer a question as daft as; "would Judas Iscariot make it to heaven or not?" But the important question as to whether each of them would make it to heaven would be left begging. This is because important questions brings painfully hard truths to bare.--- Lady Windermere, by Oscar Wilde, is just another story about how suspicion and lack of trust could possibly rend homes and relationships. Though it were easy to say the lesson to be learnt is that one shouldn't be suspicious, I think the more important and most vital lesson is that every responsible person ought to avoid what could arouse suspicion of any kind. Suspicion is to relationships what relationships what a sentry is to a military base. It is there for a reason. To keep trespassers away. So I think.--- The voice of God is drowned amidst multiple Bible commentaries.--- I heard a sermon which could be summarised thus; in giving the law, "God played a trick on mankind," as the preacher said God gave man the law to break it. A trick because despite the threats of hell, he never meant you should keep the law. Well we know that the law had been written in the nature of man long before it was written on tablets of stones. But anytime you hear aimless ranting and twisting and turning of doctrines, it is always in the bid to excuse one sin or the other. Holiness unto the Lord remains the Christian banner.
