• GUEST POST: Black, White & Grey Areas – by @Dikky_CIA

    If you’ve studied the scriptures long enough, you should  have discovered that there are some stuff that are clear cut black and white; meaning some things are well defined as either good or evil. But then, there are some other stuff that aren’t well defined as either good or evil. These are the grey areas. These grey areas are usually topics for debates among christian circles, and there are some which most Christians don’t even wanna delve into or meddle with. But then, these grey area issues SHOULD be addressed for the very reason of avoiding negative extremes. First, let’s settle a fact; anything that is clear cut black and…

  • GUEST POST: Every Man Has A Sound – By @MrOlumatiI

    I looked at this picture and I was drawn to its intimacy. This photo which is credited to “Adforumco” caused some mild drama on the company’s thread when it was published. Majority of the people on that thread tried to talk down on the size of the bride and some other unprintable things were said. Isn’t it interesting how people will talk down what wouldn’t suit them rather than moving on and allowing others connect to what suits them?

  • GUEST POST: The Church, Her Music, My Thoughts – By @MrOlumatiI

    Personally I listen to all things music. I understand that we are in a competition, I cannot afford to be content with all I know. I must know what the other person knows to give a good fight or superior argument. You know, you can only win a war when you understand the strategy of the opposition and spot their weakness. Music notes, sounds and its variations are many and universal, but the Nigerian Church music has been limited to only a few progressions, chords and variations. The sound is monotonous and the content predictable. The resistance to change in sound and content is high.

  • GUEST POST: Confidence Was Nowhere To Be Found – By @Mr_Nkay

    As written by Emmanuel Nkamare (Nkay)   Looking at my 17 year old self, saved and seriously involved in the church but barely with any personal direction for life or confidence. I realize now there was a problem with that, I was convinced that I had a duty to serve God but I couldn’t place a bet on his interest in my personal life, my dreams, the use of the gifts He had given me or my Joy as a person. But fast forward 3 years later,  who would have thought that the songs He had put in my heart in the weirdest places like a bus or in the toilet would become…

  • Prayer Does Change Things…

    Prayer changes things. It does. It changes the mind of God. There is plenty of biblical evidence for that. Our prayers engage God’s intentions. He is responsive to our requests while still being God. He listens attentively to each of us and considers in an almighty way what he will do to alter difficult circumstances or bolster us so that we can get through them. Prayer also changes our mind-set. We think about God when we pray to him. We think better about others when we are praying for them. We shrink overwhelming circumstances when we get our minds around them so we can express ourselves to God.

  • GUEST POST: Misconception Of Success…

    Whenever I ask young people like myself questions about the vision they have for their life, ambitions, dreams, etc., oftentimes, the response I get is something like; “My dream is to be very successful, wealthy, blah blah…” Crap! When I hear such, all my mind interprets is “my dream is to be very vain, confused and miserable. First of all, most young people don’t even understand what success is, they measure it with monetary value. That’s why they lack vision. All they want is to make money,  to “blow”,  to “hammer”, and that’s why most of them end up miserable because they don’t even have a vision to guide them…

  • A Truly Heart Breaking Mother’s Day Story…

    When I was 5 years of age, I watched my mother get beat down by my father. It happened on multiple occasions, and one time I remember him beating her unconscious. I guess the beating was so bad that when she woke up, and stood back on her feet, she stumbled again and fell to the floor once again losing consciousness. Before she fell to the floor, she told my aunts who were there, “Get my son out of here.” as her voice trembled, her eyes shed tears, and finally she hit the floor. I got scared, and instead of my aunts running to take me out of the room,…

  • Dear Men; Women Are Not Inferior To Us – FLOROCKA

      Dear Men, Society, tradition and culture has schooled us that women were made by God to do our bidding; that they are lesser than us and must be subdued, tamed and kept on a leash. These entities have refused to acknowledge the role God has destined for the woman in creation. They have told us nothing but lies! Even if a woman behaves unseemly, stubborn and refuses to adapt or conform to what we call ‘accepted behavioral patterns’, it doesn’t give us the impetus to ‘trample’ on them.

  • There’s No Such Thing As a Soul Mate!

    The philosophy of a “soul mate” has done far more harm than good in our society. First and foremost, it’s a concept that is rooted in ancient mythology. Story has it that the gods split human beings as a form of punishment for their pride. Since then, human beings have been on the search to find their “soul mate” in an attempt to reach completion once again. Ancient mythology declares that there is this unspoken knowledge—some sort of feeling a person experiences when they come face to face with their soul mate. It’s the idea that we’re half-full people waiting around for someone else to complete us. I don’t know…

  • “Be Careful What You Say” – By Melissa Adebiyi

    Guest Post written by Melissa Adebiyi We are what we say, our breakthroughs and failures are all embedded in our mouth… Proverbs 18:21: for by our words we are justified or condemned. the words that you speak are windows to your heart, and of all the drugs used on earth, words are the most powerful drugs used by mankind. Luke 21:15…”for I give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”

  • The Church & Money Today… (Part 1)

    (As written by Lanre Afolayan) This topic is a grey area within the church today which often times generates a lot of controversy among church folks. Many people that concur to this line of thought are neither bold nor courageous to discuss it publicly because of the backlash it would receive. We however can not be mute or timid on matters that are crucial to God and to our faith simply because we don’t want to be persecuted. There is a priority of the Kingdom of God that we must begin to shove into our hearts even as Christians, which is the soul of man in eternity.

  • October 13th. Two Years Ago, I Tried To Kill Myself….

    I have shared about my personal struggle with depression on this blog before and one day i will probably share about how God healed me of BPD (Borderline Personality Disorder). It’s a battle i don’t pray for anyone to have to fight. When I got this email from one of my blog readers, who is also a radio listener, i felt an emotion so great that a sob rose in my throat. The interesting thing is i had met her before and if she hadn’t shared her story i would never have guessed she’d gone through so much. At the end of the day, this just reminds me that we are…

  • Evangelism Is Being A Human Being, It’s Sharing Jesus Through Who You Are

    I know how hard it is to talk about Jesus. It’s the most awkward conversation you’ll ever have. If you even say the whole Gospel out loud right now, it sounds like the craziest thing you’ve ever heard. But the Gospel isn’t some “speech” you unload on people and then “leave it in God’s hands.” Blasting people with theology is like serving icing for dessert. Evangelism is your whole life, it’s sharing your home, it’s enduring patiently, it’s being a human being, it’s availability, it’s sharing Jesus through who you are; not perfectly, but passionately. Yes, invite them to church and to that revival and talk about your faith and…

  • The ‘Simple’ Girlfriend & The ‘Complicated’ Girlfriend

    As written by Lauren Skirvin “Why wasn’t it me?” Carrie asked the love of her life right before he married another woman. “No, seriously. I really need to hear you say it. Come on, be a friend.” “I don’t know. It just got so hard… and she’s…” replied Mr. Big. “Yeah.” I know it’s clichéd to quote “Sex and the City,” but it’s still so relevant. This episode revealed to girls like me what we’ve subconsciously known for a long time: We are the type of girls you should be with, but you don’t want to be with. Mr. Big was probably going to finish that statement with “easy.” Natasha, his soon-to-be…

  • Let’s Take A “Hate Test.”

    If you hate someone, you cannot shake the memory.Does the scene play out in your mind over and over? If you hate someone, you cannot wish him or her well.Do you genuinely wish the best for a person who has hurt you? If you hate someone, you want that person to hurt just as you hurt.Do you secretly desire this individual to experience the same pain that was thrust upon you?
