Passion

Passion is the evil in adultery. If a man has no opportunity of living with another man's wife, but if it is obvious for some reason that he would like to do so, and would do so if he could, he is no less guilty than if he was caught in the act. Saint Augustine

How to find God

We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls. Mother Teresa

Forgive those who hurt you

One who is injured ought not to return the injury, for on no account can it be right to do an injustice; and it is not right to return an injury, or to do evil to any man, however much we have suffered from him. Socrates

The real problem

The real problem is not why some pious, humble, believing people suffer, but why some do not. C. S. Lewis

Man lives as to make happiness impossibl…

Indeed, man wishes to be happy even when he so lives as to make happiness impossible. Saint Augustine

Source of the deadliest hate

From the deepest desires often come the deadliest hate. Socrates

Don't bother about originality

Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it. C. S. Lewis

Words too big for the subject

Don't use words too big for the subject. Don't say 'infinitely' when you mean 'very'; otherwise you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. C. S. Lewis

Pride of a false knowledge

Don't be proud of a false knowledge that there is no God when you are not God.   Felix Dordaa Mahama

I feel angry when I see waste

There must be a reason why some people can afford to live well. They must have worked for it. I only feel angry when I see waste. When I see people throwing away things that we could use. Mother Teresa

campaigning weather for the devil

The long, dull, monotonous years of middle-aged prosperity or middle-aged adversity are excellent campaigning weather for the devil. C. S. Lewis

A man of courage

He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy. Socrates

Lay first the foundation of humility

Do you wish to rise? Begin by descending. You plan a tower that will pierce the clouds? Lay first the foundation of humility. Saint Augustine

Fear vs reverence

Where there is reverence there is fear, but there is not reverence everywhere that there is fear, because fear presumably has a wider extension than reverence. Socrates

God dispenses beauty even to the wicked

Beauty is indeed a good gift of God; but that the good may not think it a great good, God dispenses it even to the wicked. Saint Augustine

Seek to love, not to be loved

Lord, grant that I might not so much seek to be loved as to love. Francis of Assisi

All things unholy

I have been all things unholy. If God can work through me, he can work through anyone. Francis of Assisi

The safest road to hell

The safest road to hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. C. S. Lewis

Our heart is not quiet until it rests in…

Thou hast created us for Thyself, and our heart is not quiet until it rests in Thee. Saint Augustine

Charity and wisdom

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance. Francis of Assisi

The moment you agree to date a married man,
you agree to be a second class woman and
every
second class person is classified as a person of lower value.
Now look at it this way.
If he is with you and his wife calls,
he lies that
he is still in the office or on an official assignment.
You dare not interrupt his conversation
or quiry him,
but you can't call him when he is
at home.
...... My sister you be toy?

He sneaks you from his car into his hotel room
but gives his wife his entire home.
...... My sister grow up please.

He visits you at home
and you introduce him to
friends and neighbors as your boyfriend,
thereby
blocking your chances of getting a genuine suitor.
Yet you don't even know the name of the street
where he lives.
..... My sister how long will you continue to sacrifice your future?

He takes you out and buys you assorted types of alcoholic drinks
yet he will never allow his wife
taste even a bottle of alcoholic drink.
Common
sense should tell you he is only doing that to get
you drunk so he can truly destroy you in bed.
.... My sister Na your body good pass for experiment?

He gets you pregnant and gives you money for abortion
but when his wife gets pregnant
he
celebrates and gives her money for antenatal and baby things.
....... My sister remember he is already raising his family ooo.

Just in case you don't know,
he describes your
reactions during sex when he is with his friends
but will never mention whatever happens between him and his wife.
..... My sister na your matter dem take dey drink beer

He gives you a little cash and you're happy
not
knowing that whatever money he gives you is what he calls
"Body no be firewood
allowance" (Crumbs from the wife's table)

You have his picture on your phone
and saved his
number as "My Sweetheart".
Yet your picture can
not be found on his phone
and your number is
saved on his phone as generator mechanic
or
refuse disposer.
....... My sister you be learner?

PLEASE give yourself a proper re-evaluation TODAY.

I have decided

There is nothing we go through that God does not know. He sees, He feels, He hears and He knows. God knows all the challenges, difficulties and problems His children go through. He is not unconcerned. He is not indecisive about your situation. In fact, God has made a decision to deliver you and He will do it! When the people of Israel were in captivity, it looked as if the Lord had abandoned them. They were in need of deliverance... Read more>>>

The different world of blurred future of…

The world is more than rotten The world has changed completely into what I can’t describe. Will I say rotten? Oh no, it will be an understatement. Some youth say, “We are in the 21st century.” Some also say, “We are the future leaders.” Other youth say, “We are civilised.” Still, others say, “Computer children.” Indeed this twenty-first century has changed. Things are now upside down, which has made the road to righteousness very rough for the youth and difficult to... Read more>>>

Wrong moral living or wrong moral teachi…

Difference between wrong moral living and wrong moral teachings Some people confuse the two concepts of wrong moral living and wrong moral teaching. If we study scripture carefully, we will realize that right from the beginning God has condemned both wrong moral living and wrong moral teaching. However, we also realized that even so, there has been no period in history when the world has been completely rid of evil or wrong moral living. Abraham, for instance, could not wait patiently for... Read more>>>

There is hope

There is hope for a tree that has been cut down; it can come back to life and sprout. Even though its roots grow old, and its stump dies in the ground, with water it will sprout like a young plant.

Take heart, the Lord of Hosts is still able, the mighty God of wonders is still at work, the rock of ages is gracious and Jehovah Jire is still providing our needs according to his riches in glory in...

Exhortation during three days fasting and prayers: 28th–30th January, 2009Teacher: Felix Dordaa Mahama Text: {bib=Matthew 20:1-16} When God decides, no one can stand in His way. The message in the above title is what today’s text has presented to us.

The vineyard owner chose to pay the latecomers as much as he had paid the early comers, and this... Read more>>>

Is the Bible the Final Authority?

This article has been inspired by the conflict that exists within Christianity mainly due to the interpretation of the bible (the genuine cases). First of all it is important for us to understand the place of the bible in Christianity before we can properly apply it to Christian spirituality. This article seeks to use the dealings of God with his people Israel, the dealings of Jesus and the apostles with the early Christians, the bible itself and common sense to... Read more>>>
