DO NOT CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN

Image
Whether or not Christians should celebrate Halloween can be a very controversial topic. Some Christians celebrate Halloween simply by dressing up in a costume and having fun, seeing it as innocent and harmless. Other Christians are equally convinced that Halloween is a satanic holiday established to worship evil spirits and promote darkness and wickedness. So, who is right? Is it possible for Christians to celebrate Halloween without compromising their faith?
Scripture does not speak at all about Halloween, but it does give us some principles on which we can make a decision. In Old Testament Israel, witchcraft was a crime punishable by death (Exodus 22:18; Leviticus 19:31; 20:6, 27). The New Testament teaching about the occult is clear. Acts 8:9-24, the story of Simon, shows that occultism and Christianity don't mix. The account of Elymas the sorcerer in Acts 13:6-11 reveals that sorcery is violently opposed to Christianity. Paul called Elymas a child of the devil, an enemy of righ…

GOD IS WITH US

Just came across this in my mail and its a worthy piece for you all to see.
Malachi 3:3 says:
'He will sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.'
This verse puzzled some women in a Bible study and they wondered what this statement meant about the character and nature of God. One of the women offered to find out the process of refining silver and get back to the group at their next Bible Study.
That week, the woman called a silversmith and made an appointment to watch him at work. She didn't mention anything about the reason for her interest beyond her curiosity about the process of refining Silver. As she watched the silversmith, he held a piece of silver over the fire and let it heat up. He explained that in refining silver, one needed to hold the silver in the middle of the fire where the flames were hottest as to burn away all the impurities The woman thought about God holding us in such a hot spot; then she thought again about the verse that says: 'He sits as a refiner …

“My belief is complete, Nigeria will shine and shine again” ~ Lai Labode


“I need a Leader, a leader with a passionate disgust for sycophants” ~ Eta ‘Royalty’ Uso.

“The destiny of a nation and  its people are irrevocably bond together, none will reach greatness at the expense of the other” ~ Lai Labode"We must have a Nigeria where our leaders feed stones to the sycophants to give way for enough room in their ear-canals to hear the wishes and requests of the people they swore under oath to serve." ~ Eta 'Royalty' Uso, 2010.“I see an intense battle of ideology and pragmatism building amongst the Nigerian youths. It is obviously a good sign.” ~ Lai Labode“Our vote must count not by begging them to count it but by insisting that it must be counted.” ~ Gov. Adams Oshomole“A voter’s card is a ticket of hope, a symbol of possibility and a confirmation of liberty. Your voter’s card is much more powerful than your international passport because it cannot be withdrawn by any Gove…

Who Are You Following?

Image
With the explosion of social media on the internet, one of the common questions you hear people asking is who they are following on Twitter or Facebook. The more important question to ask might be "Where are they leading you?" Hundreds of thousands of people may decide to follow a person, but that does not make them a leader. True leaders are much more than someone who entertains or captivates you for the moment. They have the ability to listen, and by listening, they gain invaluable feedback from the team. Feedback helps them correct what they're doing wrong and hone their leadership skills. It stands to reason that leaders are humble – they know their advisors have much to teach. And leaders, as any successful military commander knows, trust their team. The person who thinks he or she is the smartest person on the team isn't a true leader; this person has no faith in the others and has never bothered to develop leadership skills. "It is the person willing to lis…
