Ryan Lochte: When humans are more righteous than God.



Ryan Lochte went to Rio for the Olympics, he won a gold medal in men's 800-meter freestyle relay, and then he and his friends decided to go enjoy themselves. In the course of it all, they commit a mea culpa. This snafu is exaggerated by Lochte and his comrades and the Rio Police. Finally, he comes back to his senses and apologized for the exaggeration. Unfortunately, all his sponsors cut off fromhim and the people cried for his blood.
This is all contrary to the bible that encourages sinners and mere mortals to forgive 490 times a day. I don’t know where human beings get the righteousness to always pretend that they are holding others accountable, even for mere peccadilloes. They always have this pretext of rancor and spite that they want to teach him a lesson. Life is too hard enough , so we should encourage one another unto good works and not seek an opportunity to destroy them. Some people seem to enjoy en unbridled schadenfreude unparalleled with even those of Lamech. 
The reason I called it a mea culpa is because him and his cohorts all accepted that it was a fault they brought upon themselves. I also called it a snafu because it was not a problem, until Lochte's mother made a round on the press to sully the Brazilian government. If they initially did not find any problem with it aster he paid them, then it should not be a cause for alarm after. It did become a cause for alarm because all of them" the gas station, Lochte and his group and the Brazilian government wanted to protected their dignity. 
In Honig v Doe (1988), the Supreme Court ruled that, a student should not be expelled or disciplined for an infraction that was caused by his or her disability. Lohcte at the time of the vandalism was drunk, so he did not know what he was doing. That is why the gas station was satisfied with the restitution. Whatever he did, it was caused by his drunken stupor. In his whole life, he was never broken a toilet door, talk less of a normal door because that is not him. 
Breaking a toilet door and paying for it is and should have been good enough because any other punishment is a violation of his 8th Amendment which states, “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted."  Therefore, any other punishment should have overlooked by the mere fact that he was drunk and he made restitution.
You do not teach a man a lesson by shooting him on the head; you shoot him on his toes. His sponsors are not teaching him any lesson; they should stick with him, but they should reduce the money until he has shown full compunction. Who will still be alive If God physically killed everyone who sinned? Who will still be married today, if spouses divorced each time a spouse did something they did not like? Humans keep making themselves too righteous than even God.
People should stop pretending that they are so angry because these athletes are role models. If you as a parent, brother, sister or relative cannot serve as a role model to your family, you should not transfer your responsibility to these sports, movies and music stars. It is transferred irresponsibility.
Jesus said, “…Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.” (John 8:11). We are talking here of a woman who was caught red handed in flagrant adultery, yet Jesus tells her he does not condemn her. When are we as humans going to start saying, “Go and sin no more?”  
One time again Jesus found a disabled man at the pool of Bethesda who could not seize the opportunity to jump into the pool for his miraculous healings from the water stirring of the angel. Jesus healed him. Later, he found the man at the temple and he told him, “Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.” John 5:14. The man’s condition was caused by the sin, yet Jesus reminded him, “I forgive you, go and sin no more. What about people telling Ryan Lochte, “You have made your mistake, learn from it and do not repeat it again.
Instead like blood suckers, they cry “punish him,” “take away his medals,” “ban him for life,” “lock him up” and so on and so forth. I am talking here of a young man who could not recollect a version of his incidence because he was drunk. The Rio people exaggerated the story themselves.
Finally, on that line I will reiterate the position of the Bible. Since no one was hurt, the damaged property was paid for, Ryan Lochte suffered more by losing his endorsements, and he had apologized and accepted he embellished his account, and God will accept his repentance. On that bases, man who is unclean and unable to apply justice should have followed suite. The saddest thing is that those who act like Shylock, seeking to extract a pound of flesh cannot even do it without spoiling blood. They cannot come to equity because not only their hands, their legs, mouths, bodies and entire lives are dirty. You should stop trying to apply justice only when others are concerned. You are not better!
Until then, shame to those companies that withdrew their sponsorships.

Was Melania Trump naked by posing for her modeling gigs?


"Hamilton

Hope you are well. Please, you are good at researching on controversial topics like nakedness in public. So, could you tell us what you think? These radical liberals are making a big deal out of Melania Trump appearing naked in public as a model. I have tried to put some water into their empty skulls and they are still bent on arguing. May be you should have the final word. First of all she is no longer modeling .

Thanks"

Jonathan

Dear Rev. Awasom, thanks for the question and sorry for the late reply. I had some unforeseen imperatives. Nonetheless, it is better late than never. We will first define nudity before we can ascertain whether she was naked or not. The main question is whose law or whose values are we going to use, since nudity does not mean the same thing to every culture? In the Bodi tribe, Ethiopia, walking naked is normalcy. In the West, walking naked is illegal only when you are in public. If walking naked is a sin, then it would be a sin, whether in private or in public. In Holland and Germany, public nudity is tolerated. Still in the West, they have nudists camps. That is what makes the morality or immorality of nudity complex. Which means that, humanity is unable to make any determination, since no culture is perfect. When the relativism of human morality fails to generate a common consensus as absolute, we are obliged to look without the human race for an absolute. That is when God comes in.
The only person with a perfect law is God. Therefore, we will be discussing nudity per the laws of God and whether according to biblical considerations, Melania Trump was naked by modeling. Through biblical exploration, the conclusion is clear that nudity is when an individual exposes their penis or vagina and not even their buttocks or their breasts. After Adam and Eve had sinned by eating the forbidden fruit, the Bible says, “And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.” Genesis 3:7. They made themselves apron. If nakedness had included the breasts and the entire body, then when Adam and Eve made themselves aprons with fig leaves to cover themselves, God would had made them clothes that covered their entire body. Instead, he too made them skirts from animal skin to cover them as we read from the Bible, “Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.” Genesis 3:21. What is clearer in this passage is that sin has made nakedness a shameful thing. In other words, without sin, nakedness had no shame since that is the way mankind was made. Mankind wasn’t made with clothes; otherwise, God would have made man with clothes from the onset.  The question is what is nakedness? Let us say that this passage does not clearly state if the coats of skin that God made covered their entire body or not, we can make a horizontal interpretation by looking at other passages.

God had replaced the leaves with animal skin. The aprons mentioned is Genesis 3:7 is translated as chăgôrâh, a Hebrew term for the English expression “belt for the waist.” No time in history was the belt worn all over the body. Those leaves were meant to cover only their genitals, which is why some have misinterpreted that the sin was sexual in nature. We would need to look into the bible to see when the word apron has been used to state clearly if an apron could be worn above the waist or below the waist. One other occasion where the Bible uses the word apron is in Acts 19:12. Therein it is used as “narrow covering.” A narrow covering cannot cover the entire body. The conclusion would be that when Adam and Eve sinned, God only covered their genitals. As such, the breasts of Melani would not be faulted as nudity. However, that is merely descriptive. We will need something more prescriptive to enforce as law or doctrine.  
In Genesis 20:26, God tells Moses, “Neither shalt thou go up by steps unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discovered thereon.” Why would God tell Moses not to build an altar with a second floor or to put the altar where they have to ascend into it by climbing stairs? In the course of climbing stairs, one leaves themselves exposed, and it would be easier to see your genitals. The priests wore garments or robes without underwear.  That is why it would have been easier to see their nakedness, if they were climbing the stairs. By God telling them not to expose their nakedness, he was telling Israel not to show their nakedness to anyone. He makes it more explicit that nakedness is only shameful when you show it to people who have no business seeing it.

Therefore, Melania Trump would be nude if she took pictures exposing her vagina and not only her breasts. If there are not such pictures and videos, not even Bible condemns her. If Melania Trump was walking naked in her garden or with her husband, and someone sneaked around, took some pictures, the sin is that of the thief to bare and not Melania’s because we do not punish victims of theft or crime. If Melania was making a photo-shoot whereby the photographer and others of the team saw her naked, the burden of the sin is placed on the job, just as the soldier who kills at war does not bear the sin of murder for killing at war.
Until then, I hope I have shone some light.

Should The Landlord Cancel the Lease of the Antigay Pastor?



You see, we never learn!  Perhaps that is why God had to make the Israelites take 40 years to learn one lesson. We cannot build a better country with intolerance. The landlord (Harsh Investments Properties) of Pastor Jimenes Church- Verity Baptist Church is asking them to leave for his opinions against gays.[1] The media has demonized him and told all sorts of lies against him, which is expected and is normal since we live now in a Real Housewives drama era. By removing the pastor and his church, the others show that they are way more intolerant. Can you imagine if you deleted, unfriended, cut away from or abandon every person who said something you did not like? Either we are a civilized society or we are not. When I was growing up, there was a man who had a huge building with many apartments. Most of the people were from one tribe, with a few other people. Some of the people connived that he should remove the others because they only wanted to have people from the same tribe. He did. Not long after doing so, the people began to fight amongst themselves. Even if only gays were left in the United States, it would not guarantee them full happiness; otherwise, gays will not divorce too.
It is now a common practice for people who disagree with a journalist, teacher, doctor judge or anyone to seek his or her removal. We cannot live in a society like that. It will not work because those who suffer from such victimization will act worst, and the hatred will continue.
When Walter Leroy Moody was experimenting with a bomb, it exploded and hurt his wife. He was convicted in 1972 and sentenced to 3 years, despite his appeals. That caused him to harbor rancor and animus for the prosecutor, judge and every other person who was involved with the case. In 1989, he began to send bombs that killed Judge Robert Vance and attorney Robert Robertson. It was nicknamed “The Mail Bomb Murders.”[2] To cut a long story short, he was arrested, charged, tried and convicted of the crimes and sentenced to life imprisonment.
No matter what happens to him, it did not bring back those people who died. As a society, we should always strive to diffuse tension and anger, rather than seek to build it. The death of Omar Marteen did not bring the 49 people back. If we sense dissatisfaction somewhere, it is our burden to diffuse it. I have always made it as a matter of principle to listen to people when they are angry and to seek redress, if possible.
Christopher Jordan Dorner, a former LAPD cop was fired from his “Dream Job” for exposing the corruption in the department,” so he vowed revenge. He killed at least 3 people. In Donner’s letter to Anderson Cooper, he had a tape inscribed with the acronym, IMOA which stands for the internet parlance, “Imagine a More Open America.”[3] Yes, imagine a more open America where someone can criticize the gay lifestyle and still not lose his/her job, or one in which someone could be gay and still not lose his/her job, talk much of their life. Despite the fact that Dorner was blown into a fire ball by the police and the rest of the officers, the resentment did not end with him as a page was opened, supporting him because the injustice that bedeviled him was still bedeviling others.[4] “We have scorched the snake but not killed it.”
In Dorner’s case, he should have been given his job back and put on probation. In Leroy case, the sentence should have been reduced because at the end of the day, the society should be quick to reform and not deform; after all, no one was killed, and it was a mere accident. As a result, the symptom was treated and not the cause of the disease. Donner was not the problem; the problem was racism, inequality, intolerance and inability to accept criticism.
Look, when I was a youth coordinator, or if you look at any group I led, you never had a single rebellion; no one left the group and not once did we experience rebellions as with my predecessors and successors. The key has always been to listen to people and ask, “Ok, how can I fix it? Tell me what we need to do to make it right!”
My dear compatriots, it is an onus we must bear to criticize and be criticized but still accept each other, no matter our thinking. Those who have been in my classes will tell you that they are always spirited, with students telling me what they think because I encourage them to do so, without any politeness. When a student says something and the majority want to climb on his (her) head, I always say, “That is his (her) opinion; you should just give yours.” Truth does not need to be polite. If we must build a more tolerant society, we should listen to the grievances of people, refrain from punishing those who think differently from us, look like us, speak like us or even threaten the status quo. Despite Dorner being dead, there have been more police shootings too of aggrieved people. There have been many work place shootings of aggrieved people. The key is to be tolerant and accept that, we will never think the same. The gay community should accept that, it is the right of others to say that “homosexuality is a sin,” just like the others too should accept that it is the right of the gay people to live their lives.
Legally, I think that the church should find some legal remedy from the courts because if a Christian bakery cannot refuse form making a cake to homosexuals, then the Harsh Investment Properties cannot refuse to lend their building to the Christian organization. The court opined that the bakery violated the Oregon Equality Act. 
Suffer that I end with law #9 of my Law of Oppression, “If your neighbor cannot sleep because of what you are doing to them, you will not sleep for fear of what he or she will do unto you. Neal Zumberge vs. Todd Stevens.” The members of that church will even increase their hatred for the gays because of the treatment. I was one of the people who criticized the position of the pastor in one of my articles, so I take this time too to call out the others for their intolerance. The gay people always pretend with a slogan, “You don’t fight hate with hate; you fight hate with love;” however, I have read so many people who have lost their jobs simply because they criticized the gay lifestyle. That is neither tolerance nor love!

Until then, it is wrong for the Church’s lease not to be renewed simply because of the pastor’s opinions.

Can a Christian be gay?


This article is in response to a statement by Rev. Terry Steed Pierce, pastor of Joy Metropolitan Community Church who claims that one can still be a Christian and be gay. She said, “It is not oxymoronic.” This writing will define the word “Christian,” state the requirements to be called one and then expose what is required of them. It may not sound right or even Christian at all, but she is right! This article will tell you why a Christian can be gay, but he or she would not be a bona fide one. 
Jesus modified Judaism into Christianity by pointing to himself as the Messiah, the Jews were waiting. He then introduced the new covenant whereby he involved the Gentiles into the salvific plan of God and carved out a path of salvation through Himself by his death on the cross and his blood as the ablution solution. Thenceforth, “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Rom 10:9-10). Nonetheless, there is a caveat. Jesus warned, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.” This does not only apply to the gays;  it applies to everyone, even those heterosexuals who preach about God but are living a life of debauchery or scam, seeing that they are constantly living in sin.
Therefore, while it is possible for a homosexual to be a Christian, it will be no different from someone who is a Christian, but he or she is living in concubinage. It is like those who say that they are Christians, but they are scamming people, or they are racist. I knew a young woman who was the choir mistress of a church. She was born in that church, she grew up there, and she had 5 kids with no husband. Is she too living as a Christian? You decide! Would she be part of heaven? 
To be a Christian, you only have to believe in Him and pledge to mimic Him. It is not everyone who claims that they are Christians will go to heaven. The ultimate reason and place those who believe want to be. The gays are Christians, but they are bad Christians, “who hath trodden underfoot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?” They are no different from those who practice concubinage or those who are racists, although wearing the cloak of Christianity. When the Judgment of God shall start in the house of God, they will be the goats that will be separated from the sheep and will be those to whom the Lord will say, “I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
You can recall the Parable of the Ten Virgins who were waiting for the groom, but only five who did what the groom wanted were accepted (Mt 25:10-11). If Jesus lived in our time, he will ask the gays, “Why do you call Me 'Lord, Lord,' but not do what I say?" "Do you not see that men should not sleep with men, and do you not see that women should not sleep with women?" He will surely ask. Many will cry, “Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are.”
Paul told the Romans, “For it is not the hearers of the Law who are righteous before God, but it is the doers of the Law who will be declared righteous” (Rom 2:13; James 1:22).” Some of the gays might even go to heaven, while some heterosexuals will remain because he told the Pharisees and chief priests that, “The publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.” On the basis that these people may actually repent of their sins. They will not enter into heaven in their condition of Phariseeism (pharisaism) or harlotry because to enter heaven, one must be born again (John 3:3, 5, 7; Matthew 18:3). To be born again is to abandon your sinful ways. However, right now, the gays are no different from the vagabond Jews, exorcists who dealt with evil spirits but still invoked the name of Jesus (Acts 19:13). That is because “They profess that they know God; but in works (homosexuality) they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate (Titus 1:16).” Those who will remain out will be due to their unbelief (Heb 4:6). You cannot say that you are a Christian without showing the works of Christianity; and homosexuality is not one of them. Every Christian is a pilgrim on earth, marching unto heaven to meet their Father and older brothers and sisters who have gone ahead. That is why Paul told the Romans not to conform to the world because friendship with the world is enmity with God. James would tell them today, “O vain man, that faith without works is dead?”
Therefore, if homosexuality or concubinage, lying, stealing racism, etcetera, will keep you away from heaven, you must sever from them because you must cut away from anything you do that will keep you away from heaven, the ultimate goal for which we believe in God. The will of God is that we should live holy lives; and homosexuality is not part of that holy life.  

Until then, a Christian can be a gay.

"Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path."

What does, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path mean?” The passage is from Psalm 119:105. I will give you a brief historicity about the verse, present the denotative meaning and expound on three symbols: the lamp, the word and the Psalmist to build the connotative meaning. Why does David need a lamp unto his feet and light tot his path? What does that mean for us today? Considering that it is a metaphor, there is a hidden meaning from just the word as a lamp unto his feet, and a light unto his path.  
In those days, the people made oil lamps with ropy handles to guide their path around when it was dark. The oil lamp had a wig that was dipped into a container of oil. They lit it at nighttime, but they blew it out during the day. David had many enemies before and during his reign as a king. Before he became king, he was a 15 year old shepherd boy who tended the sheep of his father-Jesse. He needed a lamp to see his way through the night. After he killed Goliath, it compounded his misery with the women praising him as better than Saul. This provoked jealousy in Saul who sought to kill him. David spent days and nights running from Saul to save his life, during which he slept in caves and trenches, using a lamp at night to see his way. During his reign as king, David had to run away from his son-Absolom who staged a coup d’état to replace him. During this time, he is running away, the wilderness becomes his world needing a lamp to his feet and a light to his path.
Psalm 119 is an acoustic poem (because the beginning letters of the stanzas come from the letters of the Hebrew Alphabet) that flashbacked on the word of God during all his afflictions. How can the word be the lamp to his feet and a light to his path?
The wilderness of David is symbolic of our world today (Is 14:17), and it has its own rudiments whereby they survive (Col 2:28). Just as David needed light in the wilderness, we need light in this world of ours because the world is an evil place (Is 13:11). Sin entered the world through Adam (Rom 5:12). This ephemeral world (I Jn 2:17) in which we brought nothing (I Tim 6:7) and will carry nothing out of it, brings with it a special type of care, worry or anxiety for the riches of the world (Mt 13:32; Rom 11:12). The world is the field where both Satan and Jesus plant their seeds. Just as David fought the wild beasts, Goliath and resisted Saul and Absalom, so do we wrestle against Satan and his principalities, powers and rulers of darkness. Albeit, Satan is the prince of this world. Herein live the children of the world who trade their stocks in evil and are distinct from those of God (Lk 16:18). 
The feet and path are metonymical as they represent his life. In the first part of the verse, "your word is a light to my feet," the word creates a syntheresis, and in the second part,"a light unto my path," the word enables him with a syneidesis. That is why the John told the disciples, " Beloved if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence after God (I John 3:21)." The word helps him to distinguish between good and evil, and then it guides him as he lives his daily life. The world does not know God. Those who preach against evil are considered troublemakers, bigots, retards and many other names. Through the word of God, the pilgrim understands that sometimes the base things of the world are instead the ones God honors. (I Cor 1:28) That is why he does not want us to conform to the world (Rom 12:2). If the world was a pleasant place, why would God from whom every good gift proceeds prevent us from being partakers of that enjoyment? The Christians are now required to shine as the light of the world (Philippians 2:15). What then was the word?
The word that was a lamp to David’s feet and a light to his path is symbolic of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the word (John 1:1). The word came to shine the light into the world, so the world will hate Him. The world will hate anyone who testifies of its evil (Jn 7:7; Jn 15:18-19; I Jn 3:13). Jesus said that he is the light of the world (Jn 9:5; 12:46), and He came to give light to the world (Jn 9:39). Walking in darkness is synonymous to walking in sin (Jn 11:9). Therefore Jesus becomes the embodiment of the word we read.
Jesus said to the disciples, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven (Mt 5:14:16). The Christians then become the light of the world because they have the word which lights their synteresis and guides their syneidesis. It was the word that made David the overcomner because it helped him to find his way around the difficulties. That is why he could say, “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all (Psalm 34:19). Through this, those who believe in God and keep his word in them would become overcomers too (I Jn 5:4). How much light would you have been to this world? Suffer that i end with the words of Christian in the Pilgrim’s Progress, “Here is a poor burdened sinner. I come from the City of Destruction, but am going to Mount Zion, that I may be delivered from the Wrath to come; I would therefore, Sir, since I am informed that by this Gate is the Way thither, know if you are willing to let me in?” Let the word of God guide your path into heaven, our celestial city. 

Until then, I hope you understand.

Are Pastors Right To Rejoice Over the Florida Gay Bar Shooting?


Many people are critical of two pastors: “Pastor Roger Jimenez from Verity Baptist Church in Sacramento (who) told his congregation that Christians ‘shouldn’t be mourning the death of 50 sodomites,’”[1] and Pastor “Steven Anderson of Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe (who) celebrated the shooting rampage by Omar Mateen” in a Youtube video.[2] They have been shown in videos stating that they were happy that the gays were murdered by the Islamic terrorist. There are three issues here to deal with: the inherent evil of either Islam or Muslims, their (pastors') right to free speech and the biblical position for their perspective. Does the Bible support what they said? No, it does not and this is why.
Suffer me to start with the first issue. The San Bernadino shooters were Muslims or did it for Islamic motives, and the Orlando shooter was a Muslim or did it for Islamic reasons. In all 17 armed conflicts around the world, 14 are by Muslims or Islamic followers. Either Muslims are bad people or Islam is a bad religion. Everywhere in the world where there are skirmishes, Muslims or Islam is involved. If terrorism must end, one of them must take responsibility to reign over its followers. Sometimes one must call the raging dog by its name for order to reign, so I agree with this Muslim. [3]
The second issue is that of people calling the speeches of the pastors "Hate Speech" and asking why the government has not "arrested them" or "shut down their churches." Firstly, it is their First Amendment right. Even if you were to apply Chaplinsky v. New Hampshire 315 U.S. 568 (1942) as a limitation of free speech, it will not work here because that is their religious belief. It would mean that every time someone says something you do not like, you can term it Hate Speech and ask the government to arrest or close down their business. That is an intolerant society we are building.
Secondly, as much as what they are saying lacked probity and decorum, it is not against the law. They are covered under the “Fair Comment Privilege” Phoenix Newspapers, Inc. v. Church, 103 Ariz. 582, 595 (Ariz. 1968) because homosexuality is a matter of legitimate concern to the country for people to decide whether they should live that lifestyle or not. In addition, those are “pure opinions” as protected speech, MacConnell v. Mitten, 131 Ariz. 22, 25 (1981). Finally, the court does not require any decency in voicing a valid opinion (Reno v. American Civil Liberties Union, 521 U.S. 844, 117 S.Ct. 2329 (1997). Since they are not breaking the law, the government pursuing them will be a violation of their constitutional rights and plain persecution. Our next stage will be to examine their behaviors with the Bible.
The third issue here is what the bible says about homosexuality. They are right that the Bible is against homosexuality and orders death for those caught in it. There is no doubt homosexuality is a despicable act that was assigned death when it says, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”[4] (Lev 20:13); albeit, we are no more under the dispensation of the law. It was a civil law for the Israelites. Nowadays, the civil (criminal) law in the US is in favor of homosexuality. That correlates with Anderson’s opinion that it was not right for anyone to shoot them. As a result, they must leave it in the hands of God. While its status as a civil law is converted into moral law, only God then becomes the righteous Judge. 
Now we can bring in I Cor 6:9-10 which states, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.[5] If we are to become the righteous Judge, then we will have to judge more than just homosexuality. If the government is to round up the homosexuals for firing squad, it cannot leave out fornicators, adulterers, liars, drunkards, (drug abusers), thieves and many other wrongdoers. The reason why we can only leave it in the hands of the criminal or civil law (which has removed homosexuality from that list) is that we are living in a different society; otherwise, we will be advocates of jungle justice. That is because in a case where God has set a timeline when judgment will start, man has no power to change it, considering that he does not come to equity with clean hands. No man is perfect to execute the judgment of sinners. That is different from those who are in the church, for it is the church’s moral right to discipline such people (I Cor 5:9-13). The Bible makes provisions for non-churchgoers to be brought to justice by relying on the constitution. In the Old Testament, it was possible for God’s lovers to implement the judgment of God against sinners as was the case of Phinehas who took his spear and killed two fornicators (Numbers 25:6-8). Again, it is important to remember that we are no more under the dispensation of the law.
            Morally, they are wrong to have rejoiced rather than sympathized with the people because Paul told the Romans to, Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep (Rom 12:15- KJV).[6] At this time, the people are mourning, so it is proper for everyone to mourn rather than rejoice. Therefore, these pastors were wrong in their application of the Bible. This battle is not a physical battle; it is a spiritual battle where we wrestle not against flesh and blood. Even if someone was your enemy, you should pray for them and not rejoice for their demise. There is a time to rejoice, but there is also a time to mourn. On that day, June 13, 2016, the country was mourning the lost of 50 lives, so the pastors should have been mourning. It is a godly thing to do to weep for those whose life is hard, and we should be grieved for the needy. Every good Christian should remember those who are mistreated as if you were suffering with them. These people who were killed have non gay parents too who are mourning. Should we compound their pain by rejoicing that their gay child was killed by a terrorist? That in itself is ungodly.

Until then, I wish to extend my condolence to the families!

It is high time to laugh! There are so many false prophets; unfortunately, there are many sheeple who do not read their bibles too. Enjoy! The reason why a church like this will do well in Kenya is because Kenyan men are always drunk; they will not be able to take care of their women. 


Actually, this is not even as bad as the one in Virginia which worships naked. Every member comes to church naked. In This church , it is normal to worship naked. 



There was another church which shared sex too. The one started by David Berg. It was called the Children of God and later the Family.

Strategies to promote differentiation and student involvement.

Strategies to promote differentiation and student involvement.

            There are various strategies for getting student involvement. Student involvement is paramount in boosting their self-confidence. One of the ways I do that is by employing physical activities. It hypes the tempo of the class and brings out the personality of each student which will help them in feeling free in the classroom. Each time they participate in an activity, they remember it better than the one they just read or saw. It keeps most of them at the same pace on the same stage. Research has proven that physical activity involves left and right brains.
            Another way is to pair them in groups. Most students, especially English Language learners (ELL) come from different cultures. By working in pairs, it reduced cultural differences, seeing that cultural differences could summon a subjective implementation of classroom rules, mean different things to different students which can impede the apprehension of content material. I usually called it Community Learning or Communal Studies. However, it has its own disadvantage in that a disruptive student may hijack a whole group, dwarfing them from the lesson of the day. Group studies also reduce anxiety. The indefatigable students serve as boosts to the languid ones.
            One other way to get more student engagement for language learners is by using bilingual books. Firstly, most books with bilingual labels are less culturally restrictive.  As such, students easily identify themselves with the language. Secondly, it refreshes their minds as they look at words in their native language in other languages. This will encourage writing in the second language because it gives the students a ready word pool to select from. It turns the word from being abstract to concrete. That is because they are seeing the word not only in a language they do not know but a language they know especially when it is accompanied by visuals. Visuals will create a mental picture in the learner that will reinforce the theoretical abstraction you have been giving them. Some of the most effective visuals are visual aids in progressive disclosure, overhead foils and slides because they catch the attention of the learner, push them to anticipate what you are bringing next and that includes them in the teaching process.
            The different strategies will help in the differentiation by process and content through modifications so that every child learns something.  At times, I differentiate by interest, readiness or learning by applying the different minor strategies like Interactive Discussion, Panel Discuss, demonstration, Questions/Answers, Project, Coop. groups, Visual Display, Lecture, Student Exploration, and modeling, students’ needs are met according to their learning styles.

Until then, you can get all students involved and engaged.

Use FLIPS To Manage Disruptive Classes.

Use FLIPS To Manage Disruptive Classes.
I always feel bad to see a teacher who goes off in class because of student behavior. Although some of the actions taken have been harsh, I always feel as if the teacher bears the brunt of the situation deescalating. As a man who has led groups and taught in Title 1 schools, I am better placed to talk about student misbehavior. As a youth coordinator with the Full Gospel Mission Cameroon, I never had any rebellion during my time, but there were always rebellions under my predecessor and my successor. As a teacher, I think I can count how many referrals I have written in my 14 years of teaching. The strategy has always been imbedded in what I call Foresee, Life Lessons, Interest, Peace and servanthood, with the acronym (FLIPS). If you think that my theories cannot work, call me and I will implement them in any of your worst classes for free for two weeks. That way when I fail like you (just kidding), you can shut my mouth. Until such times, you should learn because the master teacher is speaking. This is not arrogance; it is just confirmation that teaching runs in my veins. Therefore, let us put FLIPS into action.

1.      Foresee and preempt trouble (I Sam 25:34, 40).
                 As I was calling the roll, one student said, “Maria, Maria, have you ever seen you dad lick your mom? Maria retorted, “Why are you asking me that in public?” She told her, "It just came to my mind." I gave her a devil stare, and she asked me why I was looking at her like that.  Mid way along the roll again, another kid exclaimed, “Ah, my ass hurts!” One of them quickly snapped, “Did you take it from the back?” “One time when I took it from the back, my ass hurt me like 2 weeks.” She added!I am talking here of Midddle schoolers. I laughed and asked them why they talk like that. They explained to me that it was their habit to talk like that. I asked them what their teacher thought about it. They told me that, she could not do anything about it. “No one likes her!” A student interjected. 
              Abigail was married to Nabal whose name meant “a fool.” He was son of Belial but wealthy. She knew that his foolhardiness would kill him and her one day, but his wealth was too appetizing to pass by. As a result, she preempted his foolish behavior by seeking to mend fences with David, without telling Nabal. (I Sam 25:23-31).
When you come into a behavior classroom, you should always recognize that they have some potentials. You should not allow their bad behavior to discourage you from tapping their good qualities. Let them know that you believe in those good qualities. Secondly, immediately you enter into the class, call the attention of the trouble makers to catch their attention. I will say, " Son, I want you to work well because I want to tell you a story. Each of you will maintain your seats, but you will lose the privilege of sitting where you like, if you disrupt the class." It has always worked, no matter the students.  

2.      Life lessons are always imbedded in my classes.
                I remember when I just began teaching. I realized that each time I shared a life lesson,  the kids paid more attention than the course work. All human beings face the same needs in essence, but they are merely manifested in different forms. Consequently, every time you have a group of people, everyone is hurting, one way or the other. Through these life lessons, we build the self-esteem, emphasize their self-worth and refuel their self-efficacy. Life lessons will encourage the building of strong families which will create happy people. Students will learn to trust their parents more and look unto adults for guidance. In the course of building their self-esteem, we show them that except you fail, you cannot have a past to talk about. Many teens think that their self-worth deepens on how they look, how much they know, or how much their families are worth. A person’s self-worth is the life within that is equal to every other life out there. It is not valued or comparable to anything. Therefore, life lessons a day will greatly help to stabilize the class because they tend to see that you have their interest at heart.

3.      Make storytelling one of you most efficient teaching techniques.
I had just entered into a class, and the kids began to scream, “A new sub you all. I asked them why they said that. About 9 of them answered, “You are the third in three days.” I asked them what happened to the other two. They said, “They did not like us, and we did not like them, so we ran them out of here.” I said, “Oh, ok I see.” I began to tell them a story about a little bird for about 5-7 minutes. After I told them the story, they were very quiet as we worked and finished the work. They begged me to come back the next day, and I went there. The class was very well behaved the next day.
Storytelling is my most reliable technique. I learnt this one from Jesus Christ (Mk 4:34.). v         Mark recorded, “But without a parable spake he not unto them: and when they were alone, he expounded all things to his disciples.” Everything that Jesus did as a principle will work in any society. Children and people like stories, so you should garnish your teaching with storytelling. When I come to a very bad class, when I am calling attendance or once I enter, I can know whether I should start with a story or end with a story. With poorly misbehaving kids, I start by telling them a story, then I end the story half way and tell them to finish their work, so they can hear the entire story. For the good kids, I tell them towards the end of the class. It has always worked.  

4.      Make peace your mantra.
              You should always bring peace with you everywhere you go. A soft answer will turn away wrath (Prov 15:1). One day, a student said to me, “Nigg... Shut the fu.. Up.” I asked him who he was calling nigg..., and he reiterated, “You, Nigg.. motherfuck...” He repeated boldly and provocatively! Hahahahaha. I looked at him and playfully said, “Son, I am not sure you are calling me nigg...” He said to me, “If I call you nigger, what are you going to do?” I replied, “Let me hear it.” He began to rap an impromptu song, "Nigg.., motherfuck.., what you gonna do, nigg.., nigg.., nigg.., what you gonna do?" After he finished, I offered him a dollar for his creativity. The class revolted and asked me how I could reward bad behavior.
The next day, the young man came to class and apologized. I later gave them life lessons about how to deal with provocation. He even became the peace keeper of the class. An adult should always play the role of an adult. You see, I did not even write the student up because such a student does not need deformation; he needs reformation.
             A week later, I visited him in their house. I met him outside hanging out with his friends. When he saw me, he was surprised. He asked me what I came to do, and I told him that I had come to pay him a visit. I hung out with them, chatted and tried to lift up their spirits. Until I left the school, he passed regularly to say hi to me.
           Once the students turn in their initial questionnaire about them and their parents, I consult their records with counselors, so I know how to deal with each of them. To those whom much is given, I ask for much, but to those who less is given, I ask for less. However, the academic standards and requirements are the same.

5.      Self-control. 2 Samuel 16:5-14 Shimei insults David.
               David had the power to cut off Shimei’s head for insulting him, but he recognized his position as a servant and let God deal with it. The last thing you should know as a teacher is that you are a servant. You are not a CEO, boss or drill sergeant.
              One day when I went into a class, the kids began to shoot paper balls. One of them hit me on my back as I was writing my name on the board. I looked at them and laughed. I asked them who did it, but they had a code of silence. I picked one of them and asked her where she came from. She told me, and I appointed her as the assistant teacher. Everyone wanted to be the assistant teacher. One person told me that if I made her the assistant teacher, she was going to tell me who did. I told them we should continue because someone was going to tell me. Rather than wait for them to be ousted, it would be honorable for they themselves to tell me. One student stood up and told me that he was not aiming for me; he wanted to hit another student who had hit him. I joked with him about learning to make his shorts. He, the one girl and I made paper balls, and we aimed them towards the trash can. After that, we went ahead with the class which went so smoothly and quietly, until they were begging me to come back the next day. I always let time deal with certain behaviors because my goal in life is to reform and not deform. The letter of the law kills, but the spirit vivifies. In this case, instead of getting mad or writing the student or berating the class, I appealed to their conscience in a very subtle manner that secured the peace of the class and gave us a conducive learning environment.
               Do you have a bad class? You should use FLIPS as your magic wand. You should always try to preempt trouble in the class in a high risk school. Teach your students life lessons. Show the students that they have potentials as you find a special interest in each of them. You should endeavor to embrace peace, share peace and give peace a chance at all costs. Finally, you should never forget that a teacher, albeit has authority is still a servant to the students, school, parents and community.  If you implement them and they do not work, I will be willing to help you at all times. If I fail, I will reimburse whatever you expended on my trip.

Until then, let us make teaching a blessing and not a curse.

Adieu Prof Peter Agbor Tabi: The man of progress!


When the news broke out that Prof Peter Agbor Tabi had passed away, it did not take me as a surprise. He was a mortal who knew his mortality. He was man who care for his people, albeit his vaulting ambition was discordant with those who had signed a pact with backwardness. He was never in a hurry with his words, but they carried powers beyond the immediate vicinity they were uttered. Before he was appointed rector, I had to pay money to hold my campaigns in the University of Yaoundé. When he was appointed, all of that vanished. He served as a covering to the weak and gave opportunities to the tailess cows. Twice my group and I were detained while praying in the field, and twice he ordered our release. I am aware he made some unpopular reforms like instituting school fees in our universities, reforms and favors to his people. I actually like the policy of paying fees because now it creates more consciousness in people than the lackadaisical scholarships that raised up indolent Cameroonians.  Therefore, I believe that the learned and good professor would have loved to be associated with the fees reforms.
In John 9: 1-25, a man was born blind. He was healed by Jesus, but the chief priests wanted him to lie that he was healed by someone or something else because Jesus was a sinner, according to them. The man told them, " Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not; one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see (Jn 9:25)." Whether Prof Agbor Tabi was a monster or not, I know not; one thing I know is that he gave me and the others I know opportunities. He may be Lucifer in the flesh to some, but he was Angel Michael to me because I have a personal history with the man.
I had experienced my first “coup d’église” when I was replaced from my position as the coordinator for Colleges, Lyceé and Universities for Christ (CLUC) while on a trip. When I returned, my roommate (Rev Benjamin Noumba) who is now the District Pastor for Full Gospel Mission, Yaoundé District kept it a secret because he wanted me to live the experience live. He knew that I never fought for positions! When I went to the meeting, I was informed that the leadership had changed hands. I asked them when and why. They gave their explanations, and I told the brethren that I was going to respect the will of God, so I will no more come to the meeting. This was a group I had redeemed from the fracas of the previous breakup. I met the group when it had broken up. I had already raised the membership from 2 to 125 members in 3 months. We were establishing groups in secondary and high schools in the Yaoundé area like popcorn.
I stopped going to the meeting and concentrated on another group (“The Street Preachers”) I had formed while leading CLUC, which still exists today. During my absence, CLUC university could not hold a single campaign or conference because the Rector- Prof Peter Agbor Tabi did not issue them authorizations, which I had no hand in it. When they told me, I went to the office that day and saw Mr. Oumarou who was in charge of the planning (first stage for the authorization), and he approved it. I then carried it myself to the rector’s office, and he approved it too immediately. Then he asked me to pray for him so he could become a minister. I prayed and prophesied that "in one year time, this same time, you will become a minister." He asked me if I was sure. I told him that, it was not me saying it; I was saying it on the authority of God. Then, I left. The next month, he gave us permission to build a multipurpose center in the University of Yaoundé. The planning division drafted a degree or ordinance which he signed. We saw the mayor and the minister of higher education, but both of them wanted huge sums of money for bribe, so we abandoned the project.
The group had disintegrated, and there were only five faithful people attending meetings: Christopher Aangaama, Marie Noelle, Divine Njoh, Alfred Biso and Duplex Tchounke. God had just used him to set straight the crooked path the church leaders had paved. That day, he made me too powerful that the group from which I was thrown out, like Jephthah’s brothers, came back to seek my help. Marie Noelle and Christopher came to my house to beg me to come back and lead them. I went back to lead the group and within 3 months, all the members returned, and the group was booming with old and new members.
One year later, he was appointed minister. I was resting in my student room when his bodyguard came to see me. He has never come to my house, and I did not know that him or his bodyguard (Kennedy who was from Ntenako like myself) even knew where I lived. I was surprised. The bodyguard told me, “Papa wants to see you. “ I asked him who was that papa, and he told me the minister. I asked him how he knew my house, and he told me. He carried me in his car and took me to his office. I was praying all through during our ride. When we reached, I went into the office, and he got up to receive me. I was surprised. Then he told me that he knew my mother, and that they were in politics together. I began to feel a little bit comfortable now. Then he told me that he has brought me there for one thing;
            Then he told me to come and see him in his office the next day. He told me that he wanted me to teach him how I preached and captured people’s hearts. He informed me that every time I held a campaign in one of those amphitheaters, he had attended them, and the crowd was always very attentive and quiet. More so, students came out to give their lives to Christ. I laughed, I told him that it was the spirit. However, I will like to teach him on condition that he rewarded me, since it was for political gain. He asked me what I wanted, and I told him that I wanted a scholarship. He quickly retorted, “Who gives scholarships?” I said, “The Minister of High Education. He said, “Then, who is the minister?” He laughed. The next day, I drafted a plan out of the theory I expounded called “Politics by Proximity” which was simply a transfer of the principles of “Evangelism by Proximity,” A strategy I had developed in my days as the interim pastor in Full Gospel Mission Bambui.  I showed him from the bible how to tackle hostile places from the prophets to the apostle and church fathers. He was so intrigued that he called a meeting of a few people (like Atem Ebangha-Ashu), and I explained to them. That year, with this theory, the CPDM won in SW 100%.  On the campaign trail, he asked me to go with him to some places. A day before we entered the village, I shared with him a dream I had. I saw the people poisoning a goat they were to give him and the chair he was to sit on, in an attempt to kill him. When we reached that village the next day, the people had dressed the chair very well, so we ordered for a new chair which was the one someone was sitting on top already. Later, the people gave him the goat which he abandoned behind with the people.  
On our way back to Yaoundé, at Mutengene, we ran into skirmish because wayward guys wanted to pick up some prostitutes, and there was a disagreement that brought the locals out. When the locals found out that we went to campaign for the CPDM, they surrounded the van and called for people to bring “Zoua Zoua” to burn us and the car. I passed through the window and began to make a plaidoirie for the reason why we were supporting the CPDM. During this time, I had called him to explain what happened. He told me that the police will be there, I should just try to keep the people calm. The DO sent the police, gendarmes and Army who came and bailed us out. We would have been burnt alive.
When we reached Yaounde, he offered me a scholarship, but I did not like it, so I proposed for him to help three very intelligent kids who had not had the luck to enter Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS Yaoundé), so they could become teachers. He asked me for their names, and I gave them. Two months later when I went there, he told me that everything was there, and when the names came out, they were there. He kept almost every promise he made to me.  I knew him as a soft-spoken, friendly, funny and faithful person. I lost contact with him when I left the CPDM, and moved to the United States. I felt like I could not more support the very system that was oppressing people.
Prof Peter Agbor Tabi did not help only Manyu people; he helped Cameroonians and strangers alike. One of my very smart and intelligent Bamileke sisters in Christ wanted to enter into Ecole Normale, so she shared it with me. I divulged it to him, and he asked me for the name. The deal was sealed! I am aware that some of his policies were not popular, but there is no man or woman who can please everyone on earth.  Therefore, I cannot sacrifice his goodness for the potage of the Zeitgeists or political correctness! He was a hen that protected her chicks.
The Manyu people, especially have a lot to be thankful about Prof Peter Agbor Tabi. Those who were admitted into ENS, CUSS, ENAM and IRIC have jobs. With those jobs, they have alleviated the suffering of their relatives at home. These people now have a strong hope to live, and they look into the future with anticipation. When HON E.T Egbe came with postal appointments, Manyu people complained that “not everyone will be a postmaster.” H.E. Kima came with light, they began asking "If na light we di chop." H.E Prof Agbor Tabi came, they said “Na all ma go be teacher?" That year they were two Manyu sons in IRIC who were recruited in Diplomacy when only 7 students were recruited for the entire Diplomacy department. It important to note that every child who was helped by Prof Agbor Tabi merited his or her position because he was a man of excellence. He merely wanted to give a voice to the voiceless. Each of them had passed the A levels with at least three papers, and they also graduated from the university. 
Permit me to us this example form the bible. I will want to use this example from the bible. When Jesus entered Capernaum, the dear servant of a centurion was sick and dying, so he sent village elders to go and invite Jesus to come and heal him.  When they met Jesus, the highlighted the good deeds of the man , and one of them was that he loved their nation up to a point where he built a synagogue for them (Luke :1-5 ). Jesus went there and awoke the dead servant who had died before he arrived. It is ok to do good to your people. In this case, you are right to question if they merited it. Yes, they did because the names I gave all had at least 3 A, Levels and graduated from the university without a job.
It is unfortunate that we have to seek help because these people have merited theirs. Now, let me tell you the one where you do not really merit. I had a Beti sister and brother in Christ from the same father and mother. They neither wrote nor registered the ENS exam, but they passed and their names were there, so they consulted me to see if it was righteous for them to take the opportunities. I told them to take them as manna from heaven. It is not always that we merit everything that we get, whether good or bad. It is not acceptable, but if you are a victim of good, you should take it; that is another form of a miracle. Those who have not had miracles in their lives should keep hoping and praying for their turns. The reason why they needed favors, even though they merited the professional schools was because of nepotism and cronyism that have bedeviled the country and escheated the unprivileged but brilliant kids like mine.
             History has left the past generations behind in their strife and rancor; the present generation is picking up the pieces.  In the future, we will reassemble the vase from where Manyu sons and daughters will drink in unison and dance the songs of Paw Manku Wars as heroes and heroines. You may not have known what Professor Peter Agbor Tabi did for Cameroon. He brought reforms in the University of Yaoundé that reduced corruption. I don't like Biya, and I want him to go, but H.E. Peter Agbor Tabi served him faithfully. He took the bold steps of instituting reforms that saved Cameroon from early bankruptcy. I don't like Biya, but I will praise any man who serves his master faithfully as he did.
This is not a veiled endorsement of the Biya regime; it is merely the sound of a shotgun that we will no more sacrifice our own, simply because they think differently from us. It is a time when we can tolerate differences in opinion and embrace those who see red where we see blue, knowing that there are many reasons why different people see the same thing in different colors.
This is a warning shot that an attack on one of us is an attack on all. Together we shall build a future for our progeny and the songs of development will be heard in the hinterland and the extremities of the earth. 
I do understand that as a politician, he can never come to equity with clean hands, so I am conscious some of you who fought him on the opposite aisle will see him as a devil incarnate. That is ok, not even Jesus was found to be without blemish by the Sanhedrin. Those who hated him always had a reason, but those of us who loved him, also have our reasons. For those reasons, I mourn his premature departure from this earth. He had always loved to benefit from the things of God, even though his heart was far from repentance. My hope is that he met God and gave his life to Christ before he left this world, “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul, Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mk 6:36-37.
Until then, Prof Agbor Tabi came from dust, and unto dust he will return!

“Bonyfish beware because the same net that caught the jawless fish, caught the cartilaginous fish” (Hamilton Ayuk). Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable." (I Cor 15:19). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Hamilton Ayuk. Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
