This is why she never stepped in that church again, how did it happen?

A month and two weeks earlier, she found her boyfriend in bed with someone else. Things did not end well that she cried for days until someone suggested to her that she needed a relationship counselor.

Having nothing else she could do to end her darkest moment in her love life, she accepted the offer to join counselling classes.

Things were turning great. Every moment meant something in her life. She learned to accept herself and to move on with life as is. She even started attending church services, draw herself close to God and to experience first hand life in Christ.

Well, with lots of activities in her life she almost forgot her heartbreak and this was good for her healing process.

But one day, a Sunday, the pastor was preaching about perseverance and why the people — Christians— should not be ready to give up easily.

In the middle of the sermon, the pastor’s message was sinking in so well in the minds of the people that the whole congregation found itself so enthusiastic with the word of God. Then the pastor, said

Tell your neighbor, “Neighbor! It is not yet over…”’

As she turned to her neighbor, she found out that he was the same person who broke her heart. An ex-boyfriend whom she ad decided to avoid for the rest of her life.

Why could she you have done?

She looked at him and said,

Satan, it is so over with you…”

Unfortunately, she said this while in that awkward moment state. Damn! When everyone in the church was seated and the whole congregation was so quiet.

Obviously, everyone heard about it. All eyes were on two people, her and her ex-boyfriend, who were still standing staring at each other.

Yep! It was time to walk away. Fly away and never to be seen again.

False Prophet Cause Harm On Family Ties

The Bible talks of the rise false prophets in time when Jesus is about to descend from Heavens for his reign on Earth, what it does not say is the year and real time when this will happen.

Recently, a family was evicted from their ancestral home after their relatives accused them of indulging themselves with devil worship.

According to their say, the jealous relatives were mad when the family started running a small shop in the nearby shopping center.

It was then that they enquired for more information from a prophet who spilt venom in the family’s ways of life.

From then, the relatives started hitting on this family for almost everything that was happening in the whole community.

At one time, the man’s brother came into the homestead in readiness to kill because he believed that his brother and his wife were devil worshippers—- the issue of human sacrifice seemed to be the cause of all fear and anger.

According to his story, the father of two said that he almost lost his wife because his people believed that his wife introduced him to  illuminati.

Then he said that one day, the extended families broke into his shop and took the family album as they thought that he and his wife had taken the family pictures to a secret society for sacrificial purposes.

To them, the prophet was right in all aspects. Their brother and his family were villains in the society and they should be eliminated.

Fearing for their life, the family ran for safety in the in-laws place. However, this only made things worse because threats followed them all the way.

The family was forced to relocate to another place, far away from the beastly men and women— their relatives.

They have been living in fear because they still receive threatening messages on their mobile phones.

This is just one story where a false prophet has broken the family bond. These people are there, and in most cases they only say things that you want to hear.

The Bible admonishes Christians to stay away from such people. I hope people will take extra care when in presence of a false prophet of prophet of doom!

Drunk and a believer in witchcraft

When some people take alcohol they tend to usher in a new character of being talkative even if by nature, they are quiet. I have always heard people saying that drunkards mean nothing serious going by what they open their mouths to say since they are manipulated by the liquor. Even anyone who picks a fight with a drunkard is faulted and told that he or she should know that drunkards are very foolish in this state.

So I have known this ice seller for quite some time as a hardworking young man who does his work with a lot of passion. Just a few weeks ago in the evening, the young man who was drunk was shouting at the top of his voice giving a warning to his behind the scenes person if he continues disturbing his peace. He went ahead and said that he comes from an area where witchcraft is custom to bring sanity to evil doers. But then nobody could tell to whom his threats were directed to and so people just watched in silence.

Then just yesterday, the young man again repeated his initial threats of taking someone to a witchdoctor and immediately he said this, two young men appeared and told him to either keep mum or better get about his business and leave that place. It was then to emerge that the two men had been abusing him for quite some time and funny enough the two had been summoned by the area chief who asked them to make peace with this young man.

The crowd was now growing bigger with some teasing this young man that he was adamant of going to a witchdoctor, so let him act in real not only empty talk. Others told him as he was a believer in non-existent powerful people who are out to get money from anyone who trusts them, then he was good to go wasting his hard earned cash.

This is the year of mercy…

Just a few days ago, I was listening to the pastor preaching with the theme of this year being the year of mercy. He started by saying that as Christians we ought to examine our conscience as a way of knowing our stand in faith.

He further said that having healthy family relationships in one way or the other is a great influencer to our faith in church and the way we carry ourselves in the society.

But then the pastor had this question, are you as a Christian worthy before the eyes of the Lord? He went on and said you might be in the midst of the congregation yet you are maybe responsible for your neighbor’s marriage problems.

He for example said that you may be having an affair with someone else’s husband or wife but because it’s your dark secret, you are good to go with all the assumptions that you have kept to yourself. He further said that as long as it was wrong then let anyone ask for God’s mercy for mistakes done and accept change by allowing your faith to lead you.

Then he also said that problems in families determine the atmosphere that we are to experience in the country. By this he meant that if domestic violence is the order of the day in most families, then we expect the impact to be reflected in our society. This is so because people who come from homes where no one is ready to listen to them will tend to demand avenues where there voice is heard. So what happens in such a scenario can easily lead to conflicts if such people are denied chances to lay out their feelings.

So the pastor said as Christians, we should start by ensuring that we mend our relationships for the good of the church and the country as a whole.

Most Religious Leaders React to the Proposed New Laws But We Agree Some Control is needed

Even as the new laws were put forward by the Attorney General (AG), most religious leaders are not a happy lot with the new laws as the government comes in to tighten the nuts for the pastors. Maybe the leaders ought to have been consulted but to some extent the laws are better in place because we have been having incidents where the faithful are suffering by following the pastor’s words.

There are many people who have run into unending debts all in the name of sowing a seed to get plenty of blessings where some have gone to an extent of taking hefty bank loans which they eventually are unable to pay. These is after promise of getting everything in double as a blessing for giving fails and are left with nothing after banks come in and auction their property in order to recover the accrued loans.

So the president was categorical that the government was after those pastors who use the faithful for their own selfish gains of acquiring wealth and riches. Though it’s not good to judge some upcoming churches raise more questions because the management alone consists of the family members’ right from the chairman, secretary and treasurer. So why not say this s a family business? We have heard some pastors selling blessed water to their followers; so to say some churches just do the opposite of their initiator Jesus Christ.

So even as some church leaders have greatly rejected the proposed new laws, those who are frank will tell you that a percentage of the new laws are better off to bring sanity in the religion. I heard a pastor who was being interviewed saying that 80% of the new laws are okay. He went ahead that as pastors, they cannot pretend that there are no rogue pastors among genuine men of God.
