I want to be Great!

I want to be Great!Not by taking advantage of the ignorance of the people,Nor knocking down those who possess what I need in order to feel great,Neither by swindling people into selling their birthright to me,But I want to be great…,By waking up a while earlier than everyone to accomplish some tasks,By spending my liquor […]

Do Animals Have Moral Responsibility?

I think animals to some extent know what is right and wrong within their acceptable framework. That is why a donkey will kick in retaliation to show their dissatisfaction when cornered with overwork, and dogs will play with and hug familiar faces but scare life out of strangers. I have an experience with goats when I was a little boy, that is coming in handy in this discourse. I remember some goats which would slither on their bellies like snakes when invading plantations to escape the all-seeing-eye of a herdsman

Come Rest a While

And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught. And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while:

I miss Myself

I miss myself,The glad trusting me who was confident that solutions would come,The care free me who walked around making powerful melodies of “This is my Father’s world”,The consistent me who kept their circadian rhythm at synchrony,The studious me who kept advancing voraciously for the Good Book,The faithful me who could be trusted with duties,The […]

Mother

As a little boy,I knew as my mother,A strict disciplinarian,She was careful that we must be different,She was careful to know who my friends were,She was concerned with whom I chose as a deskmate,And she was ever there to be seen,In school, she was a member of the committee,In Church, she was a member of […]

I Don’t Want Justice

I have been hurt,I have been robbed,I have been suppressed and intimidated,I have been mangled down by the merciless hand of the oppressor,I have been made a fool of by him that rejoices in holding captive, the bodies and souls of men,I have had to swallow the hard pill of blatant disappointments,Or worse still, put […]

You Too Can Thrive

I saw and was awed,A tomato laden with fruits,Yet it was depending on for nutrients and a firm hold,An impregnable concrete wall,I mean,The tomato grew up in a brick and mortar,Where there is neither ready rich humus,Nor groundwater for her shoot to initiate active transport,Yet it was laden with fruits,Fruits that would sooner look good […]

An Argument More Eloquent than all Doctrines

Doctrinal integrity is something that makes one invincible. A man or a woman armed with the unquestionable authority of the Bible is not someone to joke with. An armament of sound doctrine makes one preach with power, and silence every erroneous teaching and opinion. Doctrinal soundness is the spinal cord of every religious practice and worship. The distinction between true and pure religion is based on what is taught by either. In spiritual arguments and apologetic discourses, everyone who argues outside the doctrinal framework stultifies themselves before every thinking man. Anyone who brings their opinions in stipulated discourses plays on unsafe ground, and will sooner or later be dumbfounded and be sent out of the arena.

I’m Not Your Village Mate

You know it well,How as little boys we played and revelled,Taking every conceivable shape,Like putty in someone’s hand,Fitting in all crevices whence kindness served us mirth,And in the village soccer team,We enjoyed the game as long as the man of means granted us probation,Otherwise, we would be forced to worship him,And sometimes make a deliberate […]
