unmarried, resolving marrige dispute

I recieve lots of critism from protestants who insist priests have no buisness resolving marital issues since they are unmarried. This article aims at explaining certain facts

WHAT QUALIFIES ONE TO TEACH?

knowledge qualifies one to teach Not neccesarily marital experience.a 35 year old boy can be a profesor as long as it is proven he is knowledgeable in that field..

MUST KNOWLEDGE ARISE OUT OF PERSONAL EXPERIENCE?

no. A wise man must not commit a mistake to learn. He learns from others experience.

Having made the clarification? Let me go further to explain this

ARE PRIESTS KNOWLEDGEABLE

yes. Priests didnt fall from sky.they have family.they learn from their parents. Secondly, priests are trained. They undergo theoritical training on family issues. They are lectured on marriage counsellin by married parents with over 20 years marital experience..in some cases,priest are made to live with families.

DOES PERSONAL EXPERIENCE REALY MATTER?

if yes,
are soccer referees ex players?
Must judges be profMust judges be criminal before they can convict thieves? must doctors suffer from all ailment before diagnosing them? having pointed out these, let me add that it takes one in a neutral position to give a candid opinion on an issue. a married person tends to be biased. an unmarried person is not biased. let me leave you all with this quote

CHURCHTIAN OR CHRISTIAN

Having interacted with christians for many years, i have desided to categorise them into two major groups – churchtian and christian

A churchtian holds on to churcch tradition and is quick to defend the church practice. He focuses on religious routines such as cross over night,mid nite prayer,choir practice etc.

A churchtian seems judgemental. Every action is either right or wrong.they tend to point fingers which makes them seem hypocritical.

A churchtian sets rules for himself and claim its God rule.you will never see them taste alchohol. They dont date. Hardly watch football. All these are wordly.

They are selective in their company as they dissociate themselves with “unrighteous persons”.

A christian on the other hand makes everyone his friend Since Jesus drank with taxcollectors and never condemned adultrous woman. He communicates with everyone in the office.

a christ follower channels his biblical knowledge on his fellow human being. He is not rigid in rules and has no problem going to other churches. He hardly condemms other doctrine and mustnt defend his either.

He belives we are all sinners and therefore doesnt point fingers on someone. They drink but not excessively.they are willin to change their position .

SEARCH YOUR CONSCIENCE.WHAT GROUP DO YOU BELONG???

The Paranoia of Oritsejafor’s CAN

This pastor baffles me

naijainfoman's notes

Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor

What exactly is wrong with the Christian Association of Nigeria “CAN” today? Their verbal hostility and paranoia keeps escalate every passing day. It is like an army of demons have ceased its leadership.

Everyday that passes, they invent something silly and sinister to accused Muslims of. This time they are accusing Justice Kutigi of religious bias because he appointed a catholic Bishop (Felix Ajakaiye) to co-chair the committee on religion. Their argument is that only a CAN delegates should represent Christians and Kutigi is bias against Christians for appointing a Bishop instead of their anointed trouble marker. If a Bishop is not eligible to speak for Christians, who then can?

In a National Conference where about 70% of delegates are Christians, CAN is still screaming Islamic bias. If CAN could scream blue murder because of membership of a sub-committee, I am sure they would have gone…

the need for religious change

Change is the only constant thing in life.nothing last the same forever.everone,everything around us is in a constant of metamorphosis.the need for a changr has made man,plants and animal to modify its behaviour to adopt to the society in order not to go extint.

Nothing is static.there is bound to be flunctuation. A rich man may be poor tomorrow.feelings do change .a friend could be an enemy. A man wouldnt always have same love for his wife.

Even in science there is change. Planets are no longer seven. Electric vehicles are being built .atomic theory has always being modified. Cultures have being modernised.

It seems religion is the only constant thing. Why is religion different? Does the fact that religion is based on fixed doctrine and dogma make it an exception? Would changing religious doctrine and dogma be regarded as blasphemy? Does change in interpretation of religious books to suit modern change make the authors look stupid ? Would it reduce such books to mere human books and not “Gods own book”?

Tobeyism

Before you ask me what that name means, let me first tell you that it doesnt exist yet in any dictionary. It was coined by me. If Beyism could be fored because of beyonce, why cant TOBEYISM BE FORMED AFTER me.

Tobeyism is not a religion where tobechi should be worship . Instead,it is more of a way of life, a belief ,a culture.

Tobeyism is a belief in a creator of the universe.
Tobeyism has no place of worship.her members cut across every religion on earth.
TOBEYISM is a versatile religion. Members could attend any any church or mosque of their choice.

Tobeyism has no particular doctrine concerning nature of God.Tobeyism is uncertain if God is trinitarian or not. Tobeyism has never seen God.as a result is not sure if God has a son or a mother.

Tobeyism doesnt really know Gods desires. Whether God wants us to worship him or to celebrate him is uncertain. Whether God is spiritual or not is unknown. Whether God is present everywhere or in heaven hasnt been prooven. Can God do everything? No one knows.

This religion sees other religion as mere attempt of man to understand the concept of God,all religion claims her own idea is the perfect representation of God. Their contradictions however makes it impossible for all to be correct .its either one is correct or neither is correct.

Tobeyism focuses more on humanity. Ones treatment to his fellow human is his treatment to God. Service to humanity is service to God.
Tobeyism advocates that no religious group should hold her doctrine strong to the extent of discriminating against non members. Instead, religious dogma should be taken with a pinch of salt as they are allcompilation of human attempt to solve earth puzzles.

Are you interested to join tobeyism? You dont need to visit any place?you dont need to pay any amout? Just make up your mind. Begin to treat your fellow human as your God.

whites are devil, blacks are God….Jay Z

Black people are the fathers and mothers of civilization, white men are the devil, the Christian god is nothing more than a ghost and only a small percentage of people understand the world.

These are just some of the ­beliefs behind the bling — the gaudy Five Percent Nation ­medallions worn by Jay Z and Carmelo Anthony.

Last week, all eyes at the Barclays Center weren’t on Jay Z’s better half, Beyoncé — but on the coaster-size golden pendant swinging from the rapper’s neck as the couple sat courtside. Asked once if the group’s symbol — an eight-pointed star with the number 7 in the middle — held any meaning for him, the rapper shrugged, “A little bit.”
So what exactly do Five Percenters believe?

“The rationale is that the black man is God and created the universe, and is physically stronger and intellectually stronger and more righteous naturally,” says Michael Muhammad Knight, an author of two books on the radical group.
“Whiteness is weak and wicked and inferior — basically just an errant child who needs to be corrected.”

The group was founded in 1964 in Harlem by Clarence Smith, who later changed his name to Allah, a former student of Malcolm X who disagreed with the Nation of Islam over the nature of God.
Smith rejected the notion of a supernatural deity and instead believed that all black men had God in them and that black women were “earths” who took on a complementary yet subordinate role to their gods.
The idea is empowering, Knight says.
“Anytime someone is saying you have to accept your conditions of oppression and slavery and pray to an unseen god — that kind of god is just being used to keep people down and to keep people from looking to themselves as a solution to their problems,” he notes. “If there is a problem, no one will fix it for you, except yourself.”
Five Percenters don’t consider themselves Muslim, but their name comes from the Nation of Islam’s belief that 5 percent of humanity are “poor righteous teachers” who exist to enlighten the masses about the truth of existence.
Members will sometimes refer to themselves as “scientists” to drive home the search for truth. And they face a tall task, because under their belief system, 10 percent of the world’s population controls the other 85 percent by spreading the belief in a “mystery God.”
To show followers the way, members must learn the Supreme Mathematics and Supreme Alphabet — powerful tools to decipher the meaning of the universe. In both, each letter and number represents a concept: for example, 1 is knowledge, 2 is wisdom, while A is Allah and B is be, or born. The number 7 on Jay Z’s pendant stands for God.
Caucasians, meanwhile, don’t enjoy an exalted status in the narrative of the Five Percenters.
“The first lesson I learned from the Five Percent was simple: F–k white people. Seriously. White people are devils,” Knight, 36, who is white and converted to ­Islam as a teenager, once wrote.
He insisted the movement has been welcoming and that he views the controversial sentiment as a statement about power rather than biology.
“For me, it is about who is marked as privileged in the power relations of this society,” he says.
Some followers take exception to those who transform their flag into a fashion accessory.
“Jay Z is not an active member — no one has vouched for him” Saladin Allah, a representative of the group’s upstate region, told The Post. “It was always understood that you don’t wear the ­regalia if you don’t totally subscribe to the life.

Newtons law of individual religion(1)

I belive you all know Sir Isaac Newton; the great English physicist, mathematician, astronomer, natural philosopher, alchemist and theologian.

His works cuts across every aspect of life. His law of motion can be extended to non-physical events.

I am going te explain newtons law of individual religion which was derived from his law of motion

Newton’s First Law of Motion-
An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force. An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

DERIVED VERSION

a child will remain on a state of uncertainty regarding religion unless informed by an external person.

A newly born baby has no religion. As he grows into a family,he learns the religion of such family. As a result,he adopts the religion of that family.the family becomes the external force.

As he grows, he interacts with others, and read other books which could either make him change his belief or strenghten his belief. All these are external forces.

Newton’s second law of Motion-
Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass. The greater the mass (of the object being accelerated) the greater the amount of force needed (to accelerate the object)

DERIVATION

the tendency of a person to change religious ideas is directly proportional to her level of indoctrination in her present religious view.

Mathematically,F = M * A where
F= effort required to make one change his belief

M= rigidity to her present belief.
A= constant of relativity.

Generally, it is almost impossible to convince a catholic bishop to change his religion.this is because he has spent about ten years in the seminary, and another ten years in active priestly service.

It is much easier to convert an orphaned child hawking bread with little education

Newton’s third Law of motion-
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

DERIVATION.

The force applied when converting another to your religion is equal and opposite to the force applied when he reacts.

One who uses logic to convince others tohis religion would encounter similar logic why that religion isnt ideal.
