Opeyemi Akinrulie On Hypocrisy Of Religion.
Let me give you a quick reminder about this article(a kiss from religion) I wrote on September, 25 2016. I would only give excerpts as given below :
” Imagine a world where all religions will dwell together in unity. Imagine a world where you can be able to preach your religion to other religions. Imagine a world where laughter will live forever. When would religion stop this disastrous impersonation?.” – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua . (A kiss from religion).
” When I cry, you laugh. When I laugh, you cry. This is the concept of religion.” #A kiss from religion.
In addition, I purported again, If religion is a criterion for all then, more Calamities would come to establish a canopy of religious conflicts. I have wondered about the essence of religion as related to human society. Some people have argued that the main aim of religion is to instill morality in mankind in order to act morally, yet, if that should be the case, religion has succeeded in some not in all, in other words, is religion acting as a moral agent under man’s umbrella? Or is religion a dictatorial being upon mankind? Peace won’t come except your religion can create that peace with others. Discrimination won’t take you anywhere, it will only
make you think you are dynamic whereas you are static. Stop being
dramatic, rise up and face different things because time is not
From the above views I hope you have been able to glean some facts about religion. Hence, this will take us to contemporary topic called, hypocrisy of religion. Whether we like it or not, one of the most powerful tools of oppression is religion. As some would say, you don’t belong to us,therefore, we can’t help you. Are you ready to convert because we don’t worship the same God? As a matter of fact, they have become fake by forcing the nature of God to manifest without consultation. This is the thinking of religion. Isn’t it? How about that? https://purewords.me/religion/good-god-fake-people/
Religion is a special friend to mankind in terms of enslavement. As a matter of fact, when religion is in tears some engulfed followers of her tend to be sad saying, our master is not happy. But they have forgotten that, man made religion. The questions are: Is it the case that the creature is now greater that the creator? Too much power has been given to her as we tend to worship her as if she is the source of our joy.
Are we in bondage or freedom? Religion is an epitome of disguised subjugation which is not in existence, but mankind made it a fanatical reality.Hence,religion is begging for blood. Before I delve into my views and thoughts, I will try to exempt complexity and invite simplicity for better understanding, till then, it’s very vital to take a glance at Karl’s nugget on religion.
“Religious suffering is, at one and the same time, the expression of
real suffering and a protest against real suffering. Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions.
It is the opium of the people.”
What purpose has religion given? Peace or war? Love or hatred? Betrayal or trust? As some people have been under the captive of religion for years, yet they have been brainwashed without any choice and even if there is a way out they still prefer to ask religion for her opinion. What would she do? Is it not to manipulate them with the use of reinforcement? Religion makes you look like a moron, you would think all your thoughts are accurate and right, but at the end, it’s the killing of oneself not to think outside the box. How would you progress?
We are protecting religion more that ourselves. Does God have a religion? If he does, then, he’s partial and if he doesn’t have, then, he’s God. If religion is of God, then, it would have been perfect. Hence, the clamor for a supervisor became a calamity for those with the mentality of religion. We have been stylishly entrapped by a commoner who has imposed her own numerous cultures on us. Who is to be faulted for the establishment of religion? As Alexander Pope puts it, We ought to blame the culture, not the soil.
Take a look at all things, are they not subjected to religion? A Muslim who probably marry a Muslim in order to continue their stewardship in Islam. This is also applicable to Christians, he or she would probably prefer a Christian. As long as we continue to wrestle with each in hatred and distrust saying, my religion is the best, especially in a country like Nigeria. How would peace reign since many are extremely fanatical? Yet, we are always lamenting to God for help but has the freewill given to us been utilized?
It’s so funny that we have underestimated the power of unity in religion rather we are concerned with our faith, in such a way that we are ready to lay down our lives. Isn’t it? It is very important to know what you are dying for because after death there is no chance to live as human, think rigorously before making any decision. No body will take or carry your cross, for all will deny you in order to face their cross. Hence, your cross can’t cross.
‘If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.’ ~Albert Einstein.
True or false👆
Is that not the case of religion? Timidity in the heart of men, to question has become a huge assignment, so religion has become a God, but is she God? What is really wrong with the perception of mankind? Has he forgotten he created her? Who has given the glory to religion? Mankind has been demoted to the level of sympathy, therefore, seeking for survival. The source is not original as she has been abased because her confidence has been compromised.
I will put it this way, everything that looks funny is an avenue for religion to strike, she utilizes all means to penetrate into our world. For us, we would think it’s a normal thing for what we have created to dwell and have predominance. We would say, we are proud of our product . But, this is not the matter of the product, but the confusion and destruction the product has brought must be dealt with.
Religion has enthroned herself as an everlasting king which she has vowed to remain for life. Who gave her the mantle? The creature has betrayed her creator, she has decided to erase the spiritual world,how possible is that? Yet, we would rejoice and jubilate as if religion is God sent. If X is sent by God, why should X be destructive? I strongly believe there is an architect whose intelligence is extreme and Supreme, if you want to know, let death show you. But, I have not gone there. Have you?
We have committed many things on God, thus, this has activated our unseriousness. I am not saying he’s not capable, at times we need to put in place the logical thinking that has been bestowed on us by him for his manifestation. We have aligned our ways with religion which shouldn’t be. At the end, we would say, it’s the case of predestination whereas we created a disease without an antidote.
Religion has realized she’s hypocritical, she embarked on a journey seeking for refuge after she had caused a lot of problems. Yet, mankind is fighting because of her, not knowing she left this world a long time ago. If you have questions about her location, kindly contact the right channel within you.
“If I were religion I would arrest myself and surrender my whole to the creator, so that peace will reign.”– Opeyemi Akinrulie.
Opeyemi Olawaye On Hypocrisy Of Religion.
The highest societal matters arising in our contemporary society nowadays are religious inclined; ‘Religiosity’ without religion is a great challenge to a nation building in a seeming religious nation like Nigeria. It appears that the higher the number of religions in a nation, the more compounding, degenerating and endemic the social vices therein.
Before I go deep into this breathtaking and stellar topic “Hypocrisy of Religion”, I would like to break down and give some meaningful definitions of
religion and as well the hypocrisy
Some definitions of religion
“Religion is said to be the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods and as well a pursuit or interest followed with great devotion and also a social system of designated behaviours and practices, morals, worldviews, texts, prophecies, ethics, or organizations, that relates humanity to supernatural or spiritual elements –Oxford dictionary.”
“By religion, then, I understand a propitiation or conciliation of powers superior to man which are believed to direct and control the course of nature and human life’’-James George Frazer.
According to Paul Tillich, “Religion is the state of being grasped by an ultimate concern, a concern which qualifies all other concerns as preliminary and which itself contains the answer to the question of the meaning of life.”
Religion, like culture, is a symbolic transformation of experience. ’Thomas F. O.dea. And we also have some major types of religion we practice in our world today.
Types of religion:
According to Wikipedia, Hypocrisy is the contrivance of a false appearance of virtue of goodness, while concealing real character or inclinations, especially with respect to religious and moral beliefs; hence, in a general sense, hypocrisy may involve dissimulation, pretense, or a sham.
And below are some bible definitions of hypocrisy:
i.Announcing that you will be giving aid to the needy Matt 6:2
ii.Public praying for others to see Matt 6:5
iii.Honoring God with words without placing him in importance Matt 15:7
Hypocrisy is a word we like to throw around a lot in this country, whether we are discussing athletes doping, celebrities who are full of it or any other person who genuinely talks out of both ends of their mouth.
But, without question in my mind, the biggest hypocrites are not only in our country, but the world today, are organized sects of religion and the people who associate with them.
Now let me clear a few things up.
I personally don’t think religion is a bad thing and I also think you don’t have to be religious before you practice hypocrisy but at the same time let me focus on the topic, in order not to contradict myself and have a baseless points since the hypocrisy named above focused and talked on religion.
Just like in a song written by one of the most popular Nigerian artists “Falz” titled Hypocrisy, he talked about all the sectors in which hypocrisy affects our country today and some of the lines in the chorus stated “everybody is into hypocrisy, that even some people want to reap where they don’t sow” and also stated further “people act like they don’t breath, why some act like they are inhuman and have super powers”.
“Falz the bad guy, I grew up in a religious household; I was baptized Anglican and raised as a non-denominational Christian.
There were some churches I love going to when growing up and others I despised, I have life-long friends I met in Sunday school, and also people I would never associate myself with. As I got older, I attend Anglican but I realized organized religion wasn’t for me but don’t quote me wrong, I never said anything is wrong attending Anglican or any other churches around but I feel if I wanted a relationship with God, I wanted it to be personal and at the same time doesn’t define me as a pagan.
I didn’t feel I had to go to some big ornate building to be told I was a heathen, and then eat a cracker and some grape juice and all of a sudden be told am forgiven because I feel most people take it every other time and still go back to same sin, which is deceitfulness according to Psalm 26:4, and hypocrisy in religion is when you know I sin and you still judge me in front of so many other people.
I’ve sat in the stands and watched as my pastor made people cringe in their chairs as they are faced with coming to terms with their own morality.
Nothing is out of bounds at this church, and nothing is too taboo to discuss.”
This pastor knows that we can pretend all we want, but at the end of the day, we are all human and we all face the same temptations and contemplate the same internal dialogue.
With the definitions of both religion and hypocrisy, religious leaders are meant to be the epitome of goodness and morality, and they are supposed to live lives worthy of emulation but we are in a world today where a religious leader preach against smoking but at the corner of is room, he practice what he preached against. Religion is infested with hypocrisy and also religious leaders are with hypocritical characters that are corrupt, greedy and immoral. All religions, in their pure form, will tell you God is love. And power, fear, division, judgment, oppression, hatred and self-righteousness are the opposite of love. So going to war, for example, in the name of religion, is a complete contradiction. No pure religious leader would ever support this.
Odebiyi Oluwatosin On Hypocrisy Of Religion.
Hypocrisy is a word we like to throw around in this country, whether we’re discussing infidelity amongst artists,or celebrities who are full of it or any other person who genuinely talks out of both ends of their mouth.
But, without question in my mind, the biggest hypocrite is not only our country, but the world, where we have organized sects of religion and the people who associate themselves with them.
Now let me clear a few things up👇👇
I do not believe religion is a thing of negativity, religion is a highly functional value system that operates with more finesse than even the leadership of most countries,I sought out the opinions of a few of my colleagues, and from what I gathered, their collective response led to a final thesis being that “religion functions as a systematic barrier that organises the body of Christ or rather the church“, and in doing so some say, religion has become a barrier to the spiritual activities that should occur in a place of worship, and this led me to arrive at a relatively complicated question,why are spiritual expressions frowned upon by numerous denominations? Why are there limits placed on the kind of conversations we hold with one another in religious environments? Why are people set against pastors or ministers that are liberal ministers that have delivered messages that made people cringe in their chairs as they’re faced with coming to terms with their own morality?
I personally believe nothing related to Christianity or topics on morality should be out of bounds at a place of worship, and nothing should be too taboo to discuss. I believe pastors should know that we can pretend all we want, but at the end of the day, we are all human, and we all face the same temptations and contemplate the same internal dialogue.
The hypocrisy of religion is a topic most individuals deem to delicate for criticism, in an article I read not too long ago,the writer recounted a disappointing experience he had with his church and I quote:
“On Sunday, January 15, my church became one of the only Christian churches in the country, and as far as I know, the only church in the South, to open their arms to homosexual brethren.
We’ve never turned away gays, lesbians or any person who identified as anything other than heterosexual away, but now, it was official.This caused such an uproar among the congregation that approximately half of them decided this church was no longer the place they would come to worship the man who said:
JOHN 13: 34-35
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciple, if you have love for one another.”
The people who are outraged — who, in their own right, are broken souls — couldn’t be bothered to share this house of God with people with slightly different beliefs”.Reading this led me to an understanding, that despite the moral code and structure that religion may provide, it still serves as a barrier between individuals and as an inhibitor to what people may wish to share with other members of the congregation.”
The hypocrisy of religion is fueled by numerous factors, yet it remains tremendously functional and here are three reasons why I believe religion despite its advantages is still detrimental to my relationship with God
1. Religion is a business:
and that business is successful and it’s not difficult to see why untaxed land, untaxed contributions, constant funding from its members and as a certain friend of mine liked to point out “heavy donations from the churches back bones”,”back bones” meaning wealthy members of the church, growing up I always questioned where the money was all going to, and as I grew older I got to understand the purpose of tithes and how it was different from the offering we gave every other Sunday,and yes,a lot of it goes to work improvements on the physical church, and a lot goes into funding various charitable programs, but where does the rest go? Who’s in charge of making sure all these millions, if not billions of naira of funds donated annually are 100 percent allocated properly?
The truth is, the majority of people involved with handling these funds are good honest people, but for every five hundred good worker who just do an honest day’s work, there’s one or two amongst them ready to take us for every kobo under the guise of the lord.
2. People don’t practice what they preach.
You can’t be a heathen all week, then eat a cracker on Sunday and pretend everything is all right. One of the things that bothered me growing up in the church was youth groups.
Now, in theory it’s a great idea, getting young people involved in a relationship with God by making religion fun, playing games, singing songs, etc. However, in my experience, all what youth groups did was show young people how to “act holy” without taking any of it to heart.
I saw people leading prayer groups and playing songs about Jesus, who I knew, for a fact, were doing drugs and having sex, and all the other things we were trying to prevent at these groups.
So, all this experience provided was practice for those people who think it’s important to have a veil, a religious “facade” if you will, to present to those around them.
All these retreats were simply allowing these people to get better at faking it, until only those who truly knew them discovered who they were.
Now this doesn’t mean if you’re not perfect you shouldn’t associate yourself with the church; religion is about forgiveness, but it’s also about trying to improve.
If you simply show up because people expect you to, you’re not participating in the process.
3. A relationship with God doesn’t need to take place in a building.
Considering how I am constantly hearing about how the moral standards of our society are in the toilet, it baffles me how many churches are still around, and how many more are constantly being built.
It’s kind of like porn (stay with me for a second): No one will admit to watching it, but the numbers don’t lie; the porn industry is right up there with oil, Apple and, well, the church, as some of the biggest money makers around. So, if all these churches exist and stay open, we must assume holy people are attending them. But, if everyone is going to church, where is all this societal degradation coming from?
The point is, you don’t have to go to a building once a week for an hour in order to be a good Christian, Catholic, Muslim or whatever. We see all these people going, but what does it change? There’s still war, famine, porn; the only thing it does is continue to put money in church pockets as we try to buy our way out of “moral debt.”
” For two consecutive years in my life I followed the path of numerous people around me in an attempt to improve myself and majorly so I didn’t come across as impure or defective, but the truth is, I am impure, I’m not perfect and I’m certainly not the best human being in general but I do want to be the best that I can be and so I made a decision to ignore the crippling expectations set by my own peers and it also led me to understand that now is the defining moment of the young religious generation, and if you follow in the footsteps of men who aren’t into religion to keep up with appearances and are actually interested in a relationship with God and not the festivities of it, you might just have a chance to save that which matters most to you.”
Since the mind has been engulfed by religion. When would peace defeat war?— Opeyemi Akinrulie.
When I wrote, who is Jesus Christ? I explained some certain things in that article, but if you haven’t read it I think you will need to read it, in order for you to understand this particular article which the topic is above. I don’t want you to see the writer as a person who is so fanatic, but truth be told, everyone has what he or she believes in. Isn’t it?
For example, if I were to be a Jainist I would surely defend Jainism (a religion that believes in divine consciousness and reincarnation). Hence, I am from a Christian home, what do you think I stand for? Although there are some doctrines in Christianity which have divided the household of Christ, yet who is Jesus Christ to you?
I would have loved to generalize and blame some doctrines pertaining to the concept of the world, but my focus is Jesus Christ and his relationship to his followers. Well, some people have claimed that they saw Jesus in their dreams on many occasions which he pinpointed that he would be coming back, but whether it’s a rumour or not, believing in something would give you the ego to defend your belief, not believing in anything at all gives you a sceptical mind.
If that should be the case, what do you believe in? I am not here to preach I am just a philosopher who is trying to analyze some things in this world, perhaps is there any man without a religion or way of life? I am not here to say, if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ you would go to hell, but I would say, have you heard of Jesus Christ? If you have, who is he to you? If you haven’t found him he’s every where, but be careful because truth and deception are interwoven.
IS JESUS CHRIST REAL?
Well, in this scenario I would be affirmative in as much as this subject matter has caused a frenzy atmosphere for years. However, I am not the first writer to debate about this issue. Before I proceed with my postulations I would want you to ponder on one question, although it’s a common statement : how did ‘creation’ come into existence? Remember, science has not been able to define the existence of mankind sufficiently. This is where the superiority of God is a mystery.
There are some things happening that are beyond our capacity. The concrete establishment of religion is also a huge factor destabilising mankind. Those who believe in what they serve should wait till the end for God to pass his judgment. As a matter of fact, what makes Christianity unique is her exemption from religion, to add to this short explanation, this implies,“religion enslaves one with some ritualistic doctrines while Christianity preaches about Jesus Christ in accordance with the word of God.” In other words, Christianity is not a religion, but Christlike life.
Do not see the writer as a person who has been subdued by his belief rather I am just trying to play my role as a follower of Christ. But, I am not saying I am holy, everyone has his or her dark side, however, the holy one is yet to come. Who is Jesus Christ to you? We have nailed him several times, we have condemned him for his slow judgement on the wicked ones and we have done some certain things to him, yet he didn’t withdraw his protection. True or false?
In this contemporary society, the history of Jesus Christ has become a myth, even some people have forgotten about his return. Honestly, if one is not careful with the way this world is, one would think this is the only chapter of life. I have also noticed that Christianity is mostly castigated, why is it so? Have you ever thought of it? Why are some cabals twisting some words in the Bible? If it’s not real there is no need to tackle it. Hence, it’s real, then it must be stopped because of her predominance. Isn’t it? As imagined by the aforementioned cabals.
Akinrulie Opeyemi concludes,” for years I have been thinking about many things as regards Jesus Christ. I am not imposing my belief on anyone, after all freewill must have her say. In as much as this world is under the umbrella of God who supervises the affairs of this world except, ‘immorality’, we are not free until ‘eternity’ is ready. As a matter of fact, there is a saviour who is coming and this is certain, if not, there would be no need for me to follow Christ. How about you?
which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.
Acts 1:11 KJVA
Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3:20 KJVA– Jesus Christ.
Who is Jesus Christ to you? Are you ready to open your heart for him? Kindly think about this.
I know I can’t be God, perhaps this is just an assumption which I am trying to imagine : if I were God, what would I do? Would I not be selfish? Would I not be partial in all ramifications, therefore, considering my family first whether right or wrong? What life would I organize for mankind? These questions must also be reviewed by the reader, if you were God, what would you do?
Some people have monopolized life as if they won’t die again, they have also seen themselves as indivisible beings who would live forever. If they were God, what would they do? Perhaps, as I am revealing other people I am also tackling myself my using some questions to provoke my thoughts and identity. Why is that some poor people can no longer breathe in an arena where the rich evolves?
Yet, I would ask myself again this question: if I were God, what would I do? This question may look illogical,but what really ignited the establishment of this thought is the way some people tend to correct God on how some things should be done,however,whether it’s right or wrong at end we would know the true story of this world 🌍
Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua explains, I believe someday we would all understand the real meaning of our existence, I feel this world has been structured by some physical elements pretending to be physical whereas the existence of spirituality is what they have. It always baffles me how God tend to understand all things without notification, some people might even ask : how did you know? Do I need to be told that I would die one day? This is also applicable to the aforementioned bolded assertion and question.
Remember : if I were God,would I not be proud? Would I not give an instantaneous judgment for all sinners? I would have demolished all human beings and I would impose myself on mankind without the option called,’freewill’. As long as we live no man is worthy to take over the mantle of leadership.
I know some people would brag and say,if I were God,I would do this and do that, but they have forgotten that the organization in the spiritual realm is different from the physical realm. Am I not right? Man has been given the privilege to manage and operate physicalism,yet he hasn’t succeeded in ameliorating the disputes bewildering the society. Why is mankind claiming to know? Why is mankind assuming a position he can’t manage?
Akinrulie Opeyemi explains,In the context of “if I were God” this is so deep in such a way that,when one claims to be God pride comes in systematically one wouldn’t know about this as one would think it’s a normal belief and confidence you have instilled in yourself. People would definitely hail and eulogize you. They would idolize you as their ‘God’, but it would be advisable to repudiate the glory because it’s not yours. As a matter of fact, you can take the glory and be God only if you won’t die. Think about it, is it possible?
He argues, I have an imaginative thesis which has been on my mind for years, whether I am alive or dead life would go on and it won’t change the rules and regulations given by God,however, since some people have claimed the fundamental rights of the people there is no need to fight violently, because God will never operate violently allow Him to reclaim your rights when you are at peace. As a matter of fact, some people have been waiting for the accurate answer to this question 👉👉: WHY IS GOD SILENT?
Akinrulie Opeyemi explains this with his little mind, If I were God, I won’t be silent about all issues as I would depict my predominance, but “God” won’t think like that, you know why? Have you not heard this common saying, ‘God’s time is the best?Although the assertion may sound normal, but He’s not a magician as he tends to extend His grace at all times for the purpose of His return,may be He’s on His way who knows? I am not a pastor, I am just a writer having fun with my methodological writing, but all what I have been clamoring for since the beginning of this article is, if I were God,what would I do? What would you do?
Well, I have expressed my thoughts which I hope it would exhume your thoughts by reasoning critically. When you join them remember to tell them the reality because the world 🌍 is a serious arena. If you were God, what would be your watchword? Where would you establish your kingdom? As a matter, no one can be God or be like Him, this chapter will soon be brought to a close till then,replace yourself with authenticity.
Thanks for your time
I am not writing this article for the purpose of fighting some beliefs, but I am writing this article in order to share my opinions as regards the existence of God. Remember opinions can be castigated if you have a tangible reason to do so. On a serious note, this question has caused a lot of problems for several years. The same question will be asked : is there really a God? – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua
God is so gentle, I wonder why he has not retaliated despite the fact that He has been hearing abusive words and vulgar languages which are unpalatable. Yet, He’s so calm and patient, if man were to be in His position, then heaven would have been a worldly merriment. I know some people are preparing their arguments which might include the provision of God’s existence and His role in the creation of world. But as for those who are still doubting His existence I will encourage them to keep doubting may be,at the eleventh hour you will realize,I hope it won’t be too late.
If there is no God, and we have morning, day and night, then who is instructing them to perform without any disagreement? You might want to use science to explain this, but can science explain the concept of eternity? It’s very obvious that he who made the world created science. Mankind has forgotten his source, he has forgotten the finger that fed him and he has been bewildered by civilization. Yet, the fury of God is patient. As a matter of fact, His coming will be comic, as many will laugh thinking it’s a joke whereas it’s not. Perhaps, God is not a comedian.
If there is no God, who will reward the wicked ones and the righteous ones? What will be the conclusion of those who have been doing good or bad? If it has been said that God will be the judge, how come there is no God? Will the throne of judgment be empty? When you think, always remember that there is a processor processing your imaginations. Hence, this processor knows what you are thinking, but the freewill given can’t make this individual to stop your thinking because you must be aware that there is God.
If there is no God, there will be no offence. You know what? Why is it that provocative scenarios are numerous in our contemporary society today? Most of these scenarios are practically lauched to provoke and ridicule the existence and the instructions given by God. Have you thought of this? If there is no God, why attacking Him? Deep inside our hearts we know the truth, but we want to flourish in this world first before thinking ahead. it’s so annoying that we still have some people in this world contemplating about the existence of God.
It’s very easy to prove His existence than to disprove His existence. Do you agree? Yet, mankind is clamoring for His prosecution and execution. Can you kill God? You can only kill a person you see, but in the case of GOD He’s everywhere yet, you can’t see Him but feel Him. Howbeit, why is God the talk of the town? There are several issues to be discussed, but when it comes to the issue of God it’s as if He’s in obscurity whereas He’s not. As a metaphysician I have tried to experiment His existence but it’s something I would like to explain logically, so that you will be able to know why the unknown is known. Take a look at this argument :
Look back at your origin and reflect on how you were made. Can you get that picture? Can you get the image? The answer is capital NO. If you were made by someone,this implies the existence of a special being who made you or am I lying? You can’t be made by yourself or by science. Hence, there is a God somewhere.
If it has been assumed that there is no God, then tell me your true origin. Do you want to use science to define your source? You have to be reawakened by some thoughts. If I can feel everything, this means there is a spiritual being making all things to function in as much as I am alive, and if I die this functionality will continue. But there is someone overseeing all things.
I have been thinking rigorously about God, I don’t know why this is so, may be it is because the end will soon be activated as implied by some people. I know there are some things that are giving mankind a second thought about His existence while some people have uttered several provocative words against Him yet, He’s waiting for His time. We have been given enough time to restructure our ways, but when it’s time no imaginations or suggestions will be allowed. All will go straight to the point.
It is very pertinent to note that, I am not defending God and I can’t defend Him. If I speak the truth I will surely die one day. If I don’t speak the truth I will also die one day, so why not speak the one which is in accordance with God’s will? I am not preaching I am only expressing my thoughts which can’t be exempted, however, the existence of gods is the evidence of God. It’s a battle between small and capital which implies that God is there source, but they have forgotten Him by giving all glory to themselves saying, He’s not coming back. Says who?
I can’t influence you with my belief, but all I know is, there is only one belief , it will be very wrong for one to conclude that there is God when He has not unveiled Himself, the only choice given to man is to embrace Him or face His wrath. This is not conditional, it’s necessary.

This has gone beyond prosecution. This is a brutality without conscience. Is it because religion? Any belief that supports the killing of people who are not part of one’s religion is not from God. Does God kill? What have they done to deserve this martyr? Yet, they always exclaim the name of God as if He’s the one who has authorized the execution. If one’s religion is real, then you won’t prosecute and execute other religions. Hence, when people see the reality in you they tend to find a way to quench it. If that should be the case, JESUS CHRIST is real, if not, why prosecuting and executing Christians?
They have placed religion to be their god, thinking they are doing it for God. Let me tell you something, God does not kill. How will God kill His people? How will He proselytize people to kill each other on the basis of religion? This is a warning, stop it or the wrath will come. Why deceiving your followers? Why telling them that your religion is peaceful whereas it’s violent? For how long are they going to be on the island of fake reality? If Christians should execute other people because of their religion, I will definitely speak and criticize them.Now, it has been promoted to a realm where they slay Christians like a chicken.
Are they doing this in the name of god or God? If it is because of God, then it’s lie. I will repeat myself again, “God is not a killer.” If they continue in this stride of execution they might end what they have been building for years. Their brains have been encrypted with a code of obstinacy. No wonder, it is asserted, “he that has ears let him hear”. If they won’t listen then their ears will be replaced with no ears. Hence, destruction will be the happiest concept when the time comes. Spread those words with peace, not with violence. They have been succeeding in this execution, but soon, success will secede.
I am not cursing any religion, but I am writing this article to all religions. If you are against a particular religion, do not make any attempt to kill the person, but instruct him or her to leave. This is the essence of religion. In this modern age, religion has been moved from peace to war. I am still not getting some beliefs. Will God tell you to fight in order to impose your religion on the people of a given Country? Will God instruct you to use brutality? If God is peaceful, how come man is not?
Some people are saying that, Jesus Christ is not real. This has been the main reason why some religions tend to say God is one, not trinity. Are they trying to say because Christians see God as a trinity, therefore they are living in contrary to their belief? Or did God instruct them to kill anyone who blasphemes Him? God can’t instruct man to kill man. If they think they are doing it for God, well, He’s coming to defend Himself. Remember this common statement : “every private place is like a public place, and every public place is like a private place.” The alphabet ‘P’ occurred frequently in the aforementioned statement which means presentation in the sight of God. Can you hide yourself from this?
If your conscience is lost, you can buy one through rigorous thinking. If you think bad is good, then there is a problem with your source. They have been brainwashed by the code of conduct stipulated in the modus operandi of their belief. Hence, their hearts are gone, their minds are lost, and their ways are broad. This execution won’t end,because what makes the end interesting is the closing exhibition. Once execution comes the logo of hope will cry for help unknowingly.
As for those who have been executed, I know you felt something deep in your hearts before your execution. Perhaps, there is a feeling when you know that there is something behind all scenes. Please,tell God to come quickly so that this people will know that, “God doesn’t kill”.
READ. STUDY. THINK
I know I have become meaningless because of my constant posts. My words are common like houses, but I guess they will appreciate when the time comes. However, Jesus Christ should not be a strange name, afterall you have heard of him from different angles. I am just doing my part in fulfilling his coming. At end, do not say that ‘I did not tell you about the saviour’. — – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.
The above topic has caused a huge division between religions, men, and women. In as much as it has been said that Christianity is not a religion, but a way of life pertaining to Jesus Christ. If that should be the case, can we say that anyone who refuses to accept Jesus Christ as his or her personal lord and saviour will be condemned? I am not against Christianity, but all I know is that, I am serving a living God who sent His son to this world Coupled with an establishment of the holy spirit. If one should assume that the existence of things in this world is normal then, one’s thinking should be a subject matter for the myopic minds. Yet, I will ask the christians and the masses this question : Who is JESUS CHRIST ?
Is he just a man who was crucified years ago? Is he a common man who died for himself? Did he just come to lavish his time for the sake of pun? Is he just an image or a picture theory? What are you standing for? Nothing or something? All these questions are the philosophical embodiments created by the maker for your subjective thinking. If Jesus is not real there will be no emphasis about him. To talk of something is a case of an existence of that particular thing, if not, what essence will it yield? He has shown himself enough, he’s begging you to embrace his exemplified life. And if you think that Jesus is not real, try euthanasia (mercy killing) may be, when you return from the land of the dead you will have no choice, only if that opportunity will be given to you to start another journey. Once again, who is JESUS CHRIST ?
Is he a comedian who came to exhibit some dramatic actions? Is he a man that should be blamed or eulogised? Tell me, who and what is JESUS CHRIST to you? If as a Christian you are still doubting about your status as regards your journey towards eternity then, your amateur thinking should be nurtured with a sensible guidance. He laid his life so that mankind will see salvation and dwell in his presence with joy. If peradventure you missed it, it will be your fault. Have you not heard this : “in those days men shall seek death, they shall find it not, and they shall desire to die but death will flee from them.” I am not forcing anyone to embrace Jesus Christ neither will I make him a compulsory concept. Once again, Who is JESUS CHRIST?
Although, I have not seen Jesus Christ in appearance, but all I could see is the great impression given by his true followers. Hence, if we can think judiciously we would discover that he’s the true son of God. But, how? Why did God call Jesus Christ His son ? I will be explicit, but you will need to open your inner light and understanding. Look below :
A GLANCE : ORIGIN OF JESUS CHRIST
God is the trinity. This implies God the Father, God the son, and God the Holy Spirit. You can not believe in one of them and neglect others. You have to believe in all, because they are one. When God said ‘let there be light’ that “command” connotes ‘the WORD’ which represents JESUS CHRIST. Have you not heard this : “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” The word is JESUS CHRIST representing the salvation of mankind, have you not noticed that you can cast and bind by the mention of Jesus Christ? Why is it so? Because there is power in the “WORD OF GOD”. THE WORD(JESUS CHRIST) + GOD produced a comforter(HOLY SPIRIT) that gives interpretation to everything you can comprehend and you can’t comprehend.
If nobody created God then, he can’t be divided. Only Him can divide Himself into trinity and still be one. Because to be created is to be divided. Let me break-it-down in this form :
God (A) is an everlasting supremacy (equals to) =
A the A( God the Father)
A the AS(God the Son)
A the AHS(God the Holy Spirit)
From the above explanation, you can see that God is in all. When you call one of them others must follow, because God is one performing every duty with accuracy and perfection. Can you do that? Even Satan can’t do it. Think about this. This aphorism came to my mind without stress. Perhaps, only those with great understanding will see this explanation and digest it. I might be tempted to publish the part 2 of ‘WHO IS JESUS CHRIST?’ because he’s more than this. For the last time, who is JESUS CHRIST to you?
If my explanations are difficult to understand , I will be happy to answer your questions. But, one who is deep in thinking should be able to imagine this enigma as an indivisible construction. God is trinity and trinity is one. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua.
