Faith Vs Folly

Cultism in Nigeria now has a great competitor, religion. These religious organisations do a lot of good, but like anything consistent of men, they also perpetuate a lot of evil. Ensure that no religious establishment is leading you into folly in the name of faith. The Bible says that we should rightfully balance the word of God, this means not to take things out of context, exaggerate or undermine. We are called to be radicals, not extremists. The purpose of any religious organisation is to create a community, an interactive community where Christians of like mind can come together......

Depression's Paradigm Shift

Depression’s Paradigm Shift

Doesn’t it feel like in the moment you need them the most, that’s when your friends desert you? Having the weight of the world on your shoulder, certain that only bad things wait around the corner for you, and they sleep on your troubles. The very same friends that once called on you when they faced troubled waters, the friends that you helped not drown in their storms. Those friends scatter at the first sight of the soldiers of depression that came to seize and crucify you. It may seem like your situation is new, but someone went through...

Depression: A Lack Of Faith?

In this time and country we live in, it doesn’t help that people don’t understand depression or even believe it exists.

Eminem's Kamikaze: Fate Vs Faith

Eminem’s Kamikaze: Fate Vs Faith

Last week the real Slim Shady dropped a surprise album titled Kamikaze. And while you hid your excitement from your WhatsApp contacts who believe you don’t listen to secular music, the twitterverse went abuzz with excitement. Naturally we see all news as good news. So here’s the gospel truth in Eminems new album. Curse words, misogyny, boastfulness, all the things we wish we could preach to Marshal Mathers about, but beneath it all is a Biblical principle we can get behind. The idea that you don’t have to settle for the cards life has dealt you. Calvinists believe in...

Chronicles Of A Youngen

Chronicles Of A Youngen

Don’t you just find it annoying when people say you’re young and therefore have nothing to worry about? As though age is the meter on a stress scale and there’s no significant weight on your shoulders. In a way they are right, there’s nothing to worry about because there’s EVERYTHING to worry about! Is it any wonder that almost every superhero is a metaphor for Teenagehood/Young Adulthood. Its a tumultuous time in a persons life, a time to decide whether you’ll be hero or villain. Spiderman for instance, has powers which are an exaggeration of what happens when one...

The Twilight Saga Of Love

The Twilight Saga Of Love

In the Twilight Saga, Bella pale, frail, melodramatic pretty girl is attending a new high school. Jacob (acted by a tan, ripped Jacob Lautner) is interested in Bella, but like our church girls, Bella is interested in something a bit more exciting. She’s interested in Edward – a vampire. Edward is far from tall-dark-and-handsome. It’s just that Bella’s father, Jacob and just about every sane person thinks that Edward is bad news. But 😍😍 Bella is in love. So disproportionate is Edward’s appropriateness for Bella, when compared to Jacob, that you get the feeling the only reason she’s interested...

Yimu And Yanga - Dating 101

Yimu And Yanga – Dating 101

Toyosi asked Amaka if the female friend she was bringing along for their hangout that weekend was toastable. Amaka immediately replied ‘Yes. She’s in a relationship, though…but it’s her choice.” The other guy – Kayode, with whom they shared the back seat of a red Toyota rolling idly in traffic, snapped at Amaka for saying that. “Romantic relationships are sacred. You shouldn’t encourage a friend to jump ship”. And that was how an argument ensued between Toyosi, Aminat and Kayode. “Are you kidding me? Is she married? How do you expect her to keep all her eggs in one...

XOXOXO

XOXOXO

Almost every reason they gave you NOT to have sex is a BIG FAT LIE. At least 65% of the time the girl won’t get pregnant, you won’t get an STD and it most likely won’t destroy your future. There are many successful Christian people in their 40’s and 50’s who had premarital sex. It’s unfortunate that the church attempts to curb immorality by telling the same old ghost stories that will only work on those naive enough to believe in a Bogeyman. The truth is you shouldn’t have sex outside of marriage, but there are consistent and legitimate...

Dark Days In Nigeria

Dark Days In Nigeria

Yesterday was a black day in Lagos, but we can all agree that it has been all black couple of months, weeks and days in Nigeria. Let’s talk, about action today on #FreestyleFriday It is only a matter of time before the tanker of frustration falls over and sets this entire nation on fire. Don’t vote for a personality or party. Vote for life, vote for progress, vote for good! This isn’t God’s punishment for our many sins. God looks down from heaven wondering how a people with the self-same mind as Christ, can have the self-destructive behavior of...

The X-Men Evolution

The X-Men Evolution

If you’re a comic book fan then you might know a bit about the X-Men. An elite group of superheroes who have superpowers granted to them by the X-gene. A gene which allows for the natural progression to the next evolutionary step. In essence the gene allows you to go beyond being Homo Sapien, to Homo Superior. This gene lies dormant in its host, until it is triggered by stress usually during teenagehood. It manifests itself in powers and for a young teenager, waking up with powers can be a very scary event. Picture Kitty Pryde, a girl who...
