Southern Cameroons Should Keep Their Schools Closed For Their Own Good.

I hear talks of schools reopening because children can no more stay home. Is it that all those who were arrested have been released, or is it that they have quickly attained their goals? Is it that the marginalization of Southern Cameroons has been resolved, or is it that Anglophone grievances have been satisfied? Southern Cameroons is not the first and will not be the last. Do you remember all those who died in the Southern Cameroons territory? They cannot be resurrected, but let the cause for which they died be attained. What shall you tell the mother in Bamenda whose son was killed while fighting for the Anglophone cause, or what shall you tell the sister whose only brother had his brain dashed and mixed with the dust of Mutengene? What answer shall the Southern Cameroon leaders give to those college girls who were raped and abused? Their trauma will increase exponentially because it means that they were raped in vain. I was not the one raped and I was not the one who lost a brother, but their lost and pain keep me awake day and night.
Otherwise, their blood will be on the hands of Southern Cameroons leaders. Cultural and political revolutions can find a passage to success only when schools are shut down. That is why during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, schools were closed for more than one year. Before the Chinese, the Indians had done it with great success.  
Two days ago, I was watching a video on American fight for independence, and therein was a mention that “The English government closed the Dutch schools for some time" because they seemed to inspire the rebels. 
Therefore, shutting down schools as a medium of political pressure to force leverage and entertain some form of negotiation is not anew. The stakes are very high now. If Southern Cameroons keeps her schools closed, the government will want to use force to get them open. That will attract more attention. No school too will mean that the government has lost its grip; consequently, it will be forced to negotiate. It is better to stay home than to have a school like this one in a region that produces oil.
It is better to stay home than to have kids in a school like this despite all the oil we have. 

Our children and grand children cannot keep risking their lives when we have all those mineral resources. 

Let the kid stay home until Southern Cameroon is treated as an equal partner. 

A few months ago, I predicted that Trump was going to win. As many of you know, I seldom lose in my predictions. If Southern Cameroons resume school this September, they will forever lose their cause. If Southern Cameroons cannot sleep because of what the Biya government is doing to her, the Biya government will not sleep for fear of what Southern Cameroons will do unto her. It is in the best interest of both parties to negotiate and find a practical solution that benefits all Cameroonians. Until such is done, Southern Cameroons should not go to school. They cannot reach the toilet and excrete on the floor. They will be forced to clean their mess or even forced to eat it. It is not a secret that when the oppressed revolts and fails, the oppressor increases their pain as a payback. I cannot imagine what pain awaits the Southern Cameroons child, after schools resumes. I will like to share Norman Macleod’s first stanza of “Courage, brother, do not stumble.”

Courage, brother, do not stumble,
Though thy path be dark as night;
There’s a star to guide the humble:
Trust in God and do the right.
Let the road be rough and dreary,
And its end far out of sight,
Foot it bravely; strong or weary,

Until then, it is in the best interest of Southern Cameroons to keep their schools closed.

My Little Immanuel Church!



Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That sat on top of reformed theology.
It was not just the doctrine they taught;
It was their love to practice the word.
That made them women and men of God.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That sat on top of mustard mighty faith.
It was not their numbers that made them great;
It was their love for the spirit of the word.
That made godly and loving to be around.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That sat on top of God’s word and love.
You never heard of divorces and break-ups;
Their marriages were solid and love flowed.
How great was their notion of family.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church.
That sat on top of friendliness and jokes.
They joked about their ages and misfortunes;
They knew that God was all they wanted and had.
So they placed their faith and being in Him.

Did you see my little Immanuel Church?
That made me love to be member of a church
Soon they spread amongst the Church;
Perhaps to share their faith and works
This year their curtain will be drawn.

"Do you have family here?"


People always ask me each time I meet a new person, “Do you have family here?” Sometimes, when I meet a white person, he or she always wants to tell me about some Africans or Cameroonians they know. They will ask me, “Do you want to meet them?” I am sure, most of them are always taken aback when I say that “No, not really. I want to know you and make you my family.” Some of them think that I don’t have a notion of family, or I hate my family or something. If I know the person well, I will ask them, “Do you meet every white person you see, or do you meet every American in Germany or Europe whenever you visit?” They will grind and retort, “You are funny.” I do that because as a follower of Christ, I must espoused everything He taught. He taught us that those who do God’s will are our brothers and sisters and our mothers and fathers. The spiritual family does not know race, color, ethnicity or social status; it knows only the Blood of Christ and the seal of Spirit.
Suffer that I clear the first scriptural barrier that those who disagree with me always raise. They always cite I Timothy 5:8, “But if any provide not for his own, especially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.” As many of you know that I use my real name because I want to give you the opportunity to verify what I say, so if you propagate lies, we can find recourse elsewhere. I believe in family, and I have a strong family bond that I rarely miss a day without talking with a sanguin brother, sister or my mother. Many of my nieces, nephews and even cousins will tell you that I paid their tuition. I don’t know a single needy cousin whom I did not help, except if he or she wanted to double dip, take from both sides.
Therefore, I am aware of that verse. When Jesus was in Tyre and Sidon (current day Lebanon) ministering, his brothers, sisters and mother came to see for themselves the state of their brother and son, especially because rumors have been going around that he was demented. People quickly announced to him that his family was there. He then asked them, “Who is my mother, or my brethren?” To the shock of many, he pointed to his disciples and believers, saying, “Behold my mother and my brethren! For whosoever shall do the will of God, the same is my brother, and my sister, and mother.” Mk. 3:33-35.
I am sure that you have heard people say that blood is thicker than water. They mean that family ties are stronger than non-family ties. That is worldly wisdom. Divine wisdom says that “Water and spirit are stronger than blood.” Jesus said, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.” Jn 3:5-6. The water here stands for the blood-physical birth, human relationships and spiritual birth is for being born-again.  We become a family as brothers and sisters in Christ due to the death of Christ. When we are born again, we are adopted into the family of God; henceforth, we are brothers and sisters in the Lord. Those who are older to be our parents are our fathers and mothers.
Sometimes it baffles me how a white Christian will have less respect for me, a black brother in Christ, but he/she will honor another white person, even if he is a criminal. For me, I consider the mothers, fathers in my church the same way I consider my own mother. I feel their pain when they say that they are sick the very same way I feel when my own mother says that she is sick. When a sister in church tells me their problems, I bear the burden just like I do with my own sisters because those who hear the word and practice it are members of the family of God, which I am part. Even within the physical realm, sometimes there is “a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.” (Prov. 18:24). These folks have different roles and he explains that, “A friend is always loyal, and a brother is born to help in time of need (Prov 17:17).” That is why, it is wrong for a Christian group to neglect their sister or brother in Christ simply because he looks or is different from them. They are there to help in times of need.  That is what a great Christian brotherhood does.
When white Christians ask me if I wanted to meet a black person or a Cameroonian, I seem to pity them (more than the non-Christians) because I see that they have not understood the bond that ties us together. They seem to feel that I would not be comfortable with them because they are white. They are my family. The other one is peripheral. If it happens that in my daily interactions I meet a Cameroonian or a black person, I am fine with that. However, it is not the color of one’s skin or their ethnicity that makes me comfortable around them; it is the spiritual bond which is demonstrated in how they practice their Christianity that makes me comfortable. They are my brothers and sisters. They are my mothers and fathers. They should make me feel comfortable by showing me the love of Christ. I will end with this anecdote.
Even my friendships are not made based o color and ethnicity. I make friends based on loyalty and honesty, no matter the color of one's skin. Many people are missing out on building a happy relationship and platonic friendship because they are so carried with this race thing. 
A few years back, the parents of a young sister refused her from dating, talk less of marrying a black man. They said that the black man will be of no good for her. Within 4 years, she dated and married 2 white men and both marriages ended up in divorce. The black guy they rejected is still happily married today to another white girl from another church.  Blood and water are thicker and stronger than just blood. Christendom should take note and keep it to heart. Who do you think would have been better for her: the white guys or the black guy? You make your pick. 

Until then, you are my family if you hear and keep the word of God.

Should Schools Resume in Southern Cameroons This Academic Year 09/2017-07/2018?


          If schools resume in Southern Cameroons, it will not be different from a runner who quits the race while he or she was almost on the finishline. The gains you make by not going to school and having better conditions in future for your posterity is better than the crumbs you will pick now by going to school in September. 
By going to school, you do not resolve the inequalities that exist between Southern Cameroon and other parts of Cameroon. We are not going to school because there are inequalities, and those inequalities have not been resolved. Why then are we going to school? 
Southern Cameroons still has dead bodies, freedom fighters in jail, and many are still prisoners of their consciences because they cannot speak their minds. Why then are you resuming school?
School boycott was to put pressure on the government and to draw international attention. The cameras are now on you, and you are running into the hellhole of comfort. In 5 years time, you should not come back again about ghost town or grievances. I supposed that by going to school, the government has settled all your grievance; otherwise, I will suggest that Operation Ghost Town continues until the government capitulates. 
Until then, I pray thee not to trample underfoot the blood of the freedom fighters who have gone ahead.

Patrick Ekema, an epitome of a morally and spiritually bankrupt Cameroon


Patrick Ekema


On Patrick Ekema, an epitome of a morally and spiritually bankrupt Cameroon society , one must trace the genes of fraud as a social immoral  construct accepted as a norm in the Cameroon socio- religious and political culture.  Almost everything in Cameroon , East, North South or West  is a fraud. The church politics is a fraud ,so too is state politics.  

The Cameroon  Scholarship Board was a fraud under anglophones. Many students on scholarship to study in foreign universities had fake documents and grades.  The directors of the program abused the modus operandi of the program to send unqualified families and children of friends and colleagues overseas on scholarships. Many turned out to be academic nonentities. 

Since 1988 that I knew of the Cameroon Scholarship under anglophones, they  rejected the brightest students from poor backgrounds and gave their merited places to those who did not even come closed to the B grade.  The elite doctored the academic transcripts of their children and children of friends and sent their love ones  overseas on those scholarships when they did not qualify for them. 

So why are some of these folks acting strange on the Ekema Patrick guy when it is a system of fraud? The system is a fraud and lots of things happen through fraud. For instance all entrance exams into professional schools is one of the biggest frauds ever in Cameroon. We all know that only about 5 % of people who make it  into professional schools are meritorious. That only about 5 % were also selected for Cameroon scholarships abroad on academic merits. The rest has been through fraud. 

Who can deny  the fact that about  50 % of the candidates recruited into any professional school in Cameroon had to give a bribe in cash or in kind including but not limited to money, land or any property in exchange for admission to the extent that seating for the entrance exam was only a formality ? Who can contest this assertion ? 

 So let us trace back the power of fraudulent documents among Cameroonians at the level of Professional schools, Cameroon scholarships, award of degrees and employment. Let us think of all the fradulent documents many of you cameroonians living abroad have established in order to survive here in Europe and North America. 

How about fraudulent immigration documents ? How about fraudulent marriages for immigration papers ? So to me what some of them  are doing is sheer hypocrisy and a travesty of facts. Are they  decrying all these ills or they  are selectively targeting one man, Patrick Ekema ? How about the fraudulent activities of those who are here in the USA on political asylum and yet still supporting the same corrupt  people they claim persecuted them in cameroon? 

Please. Let us talk about all these frauds and not only focus on Ekema. 

How do we build a virtuous and free society ? 

Thanks, Jonathan Awasom

Does God Prohibit Incest?


“Bishop tell me what you think. Should you turn in your parents if you realized you were conceived out of incest?”
I will start by contextualizing the story (which you can read here yourself). 32 year old Donna Price found out (through an aunt) that the people she has known as her parents from birth until this age were siblings. She conducted a DNA, and the results came back that the father is unknown, but the mother is the biological mother. However, she felt betrayed that these two siblings (who are half-sister and half-brother) had lived together. Consequently, she reported them to the police. The question they ask is “Was she right in doing that? Should you turn in your parents from a crime or sin like that?"
Jesus once said, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her (John 8:7).” What may be more egregious is the public spectacle she is making with her television rounds. It looks more like the Pharisees making a pompous round of honor after the death of Jesus. If there was a camera in her life 24/7, we will see that there are many laws that she has broken too. Notwithstanding, I will go directly into the theology of the saga.
The problem of incest is very complex. I want you to be open minded. Under the first four dispensations, God approved of incest. Yes, you heard me well. He did not condemn it. That is why God does not condemn Abraham when he married his half-sister-Sarah (Gen 20:12), Lot and his daughters had kids (Gen 19:35-38), Isaac and Rebecca were married (Gen 24: 1-4) and Amram- Moses’ Father married Jochabed-his aunt (Ex 6:20). Therefore, one married his half-sister, two had kids from their father, Isaac practiced endogamy, and the other married his aunt. There was not even a rebuke in any of them.
After Cain had killed Able, Adam and Eve had sons and daughters (Gen 5: 4). After Cain was banished from the clan, he became a wanderer. After Cain married, his wife got pregnant (Gen 4:17). They did not just have a child, but they had one who walked with God 365 years until God called him directly to heaven without him passing through death (Gen 5:24). It is certain that he married one of his sisters who was born after the death of Abel. People contend that this version is not true because there were people living before Adam and Eve. That is not what the Bible says, so we are not going to conjure.
Nevertheless, during the Dispensation of the Law, incest was elaborately forbidden thereiin (Leviticus 18:6-18; 20:11-17). Meanwhile, under the dispensation of Grace, it was not condemned. In the dispensation of Grace, Christs perfected the law. The law was now administered with equity-spirit. People have cited I Corinthians 5: 1-5. The condemnation herein was on fornication-illicit sex; it was not because it was his father’s wife. His father was still married to the woman, when he seized her from him. That is where the condemnation lies because God has always been against sex out of marriage. If incest was to take place in marriage, it would bear no condemnation.
In the dispensation of grace, there is no adoption or rejection of incest. The question then is, “is incest prohibited nowadays?” Although incest is not prohibited; it is not expedient. It is not expedient due to the unsavory health complications it brings. During the first four dispensations, their life span and health were robust, but we now live in a fragile state of unhealthiness that close sexual relationships will bring more complications. Paul said that all things are lawful, but all things are not expedian4t (I Cor 6:12; 10:23). Hence, incest per se today is not a sin (a moral wrong), albeit it is a legal wrong because there are laws against incest. In countries where incest is not prohibited, it is not morally and legally wrong.
Consequently, the young woman turning in her parents was being too overzealous and too over righteous, especially for a peccadillo like this which is not even prohibited in the scripture. Ecclesiastes 7:16 says, "Be not righteous over much; neither make thyself over wise: why shouldest thou destroy thyself?" Furthermore, her parents were half siblings and they got together without realizing that they were related. Once they did, they separated. Donna Price calling the police was totally pharisaical. Paul declared, “And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30).” God has reserved a day when he will judge us all, and I am certain that he would have maintained the forgiveness he already granted her parents. More so, they are siblings, but only the mom is the biological parent. They go together by mistake. As such, going to the press is a money grubbing act rather than a righteousness act.

Until then, the young woman is wrong calling the police.

“Do Americans understand what adultery is? What is Adultery? I was wondering if adultery is the same everywhere.”

From the movie: Adulterers. 
“Do Americans understand what adultery is? What is Adultery? I was wondering if adultery is the same everywhere.”

The seventh of the Ten Commandments states, “Thou shalt not commit adultery (Ex 20: 14).” The Ten Commandments is moral law; and moral law transcends cultures and ages. Consequently, adultery should be the same everywhere; albeit, it may have some cultural underpinnings. This lesson will define and demonstrate what adultery is, and it will use two case studies to show the errancy. Americans have a convoluted notion of Adultery. They think that adultery is when a married man has sex out of marriage.
However, it is important to realize the part that culture can play. If a spouse accepts her partner to have sex out of marriage, that is not adultery. It will correspond to the examples of Abraham and Jacob. Those are cultural examples.
Ab initio, adultery was when a married woman (not man) had consensual sex out of marriage; meanwhile, it was adultery to the man if he had consensual sex with a married woman. While the woman committed adultery just having consensual sex out of marriage, the man committed adultery only when he had consensual sex with a married woman. This definition explains why when the woman was caught in flagrant adultery, she was the one they wanted to lapidate and not her and the man (Jn 8: 4-5). It is probable that the man was married himself. The married man could have sex with a slave girl or housemaid, and it was not adultery. As a result, Abraham had sex with Hagar, and it was not considered adultery (Gen 16:1-4). We see the same practice when Jacob had sex with his handmaid: Bilhah (Gen 30:1-5). The married man could even have sex with a prostitute, and it was still not considered adultery. When Judah, in his search to sleep with a prostitute instead got Tamar: his daughter in-law pregnant, he was not faced with the punishment of death (Gen 38: 1-8). It was immoral (Gen 38:  26-27), but it was not a crime. This practice will continue until the days of Jesus, when he will upgrade it to be sex out of marriage for both men and women (Mt 5:27-28).
Adultery breaks the wedlock you put on the door against all other men and women on the day you were getting married because marriage is a bond in love that is sexually administered. Marriage is a covenant and not a contract. That is why ceteris paribus, it is unto death do us part. Therefore, when a single or married woman sleeps with a married man, both the woman and the man have committed adultery. In America, it is not so. They have a convoluted notion of adultery. They seem to think that the married man is guiltier than the tryst partner. Suffer that I use only two case studies.
During the Tiger Woods saga, there were many women who came out that they were sleeping with him.  All the ladies knew that Tiger was married, yet they went out with him. When it was exposed, Talk show hosts were honoring the ladies and paying them to appear on shows to tell their stories. They were glorifying the adulteresses, or perhaps they were glorifying their stories of adulteries. Do they forget that these women were adulteresses? No, it is just the way they see adultery. No matter how rich or popular the man is; it is still adultery, if he is married. I don't understand then why these women sleep with married men, yet they have tell all books coming out, which actually end up being bestsellers. That is a secret you take to the grave! 
With your permission, I will use the current situation with Bill Cosby. Many women say how they slept with Bill Cosby. They knew that he was married, yet they still went to bed with him. The popular opinion is that he is a bad person. Adultery is like a Tango dance; you can only dance with a partner.
Neither Tiger nor Cosby could have committed adultery by themselves; however, the fact that the women with whom they committed adultery are the ones lifted up the pedestal, it is wicked and callous.
Cosby’s harem in their quest for financial windfall and fame, accepted financial largess from him, called him 73 times, called him twice on Valentine’s Day to wish him one and visited him with bath salt, and they had sex many more times with him after they have claimed he assaulted them. This should be enough to discredit a woman in a country that sees adultery differently from the US. The burden is not only on the married man; it is also on the unmarried woman. She is an accomplice in breaking that bond.
If you do not have shame, at least you should have self-respect for yourself and keep it a secret. Adultery is one of those secrets you should take to your grave. The Americans do not see it that way; that is why they praise the unmarried women who were sleeping with the married man for coming out. Otherwise, why do TV hosts invite them to get such huge ratings? The fact that Bill Cosby even had a mistrial shows that the majority accept and condone the behavior of those women.
Nonetheless, when you commit adultery, you should confess ONLY to God, except if you were caught in the act. Are you shocked that I said that? You should walk with me slowly. Many people interpret James 5:16 wrongly. The verse says, “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16).” This verse refers to character weaknesses. Those internal struggles we have. This is not in relation to sinning against one another.
It is a requirement to share our weaknesses, so we can pray and sustain each other. It is not about confessing our sins to one another. Furthermore, Jesus said, “Therefore, if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;  Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift (Mt. 5:23-24). This is for sins or peccadilloes that can be redeem with restitution. There cannot be any restitution with adultery, so you cannot and should not make any direct confession, except if your spouse caught you in bed and saw it himself or herself. Otherwise, it is like digging a big hole to fill a small one. You remembered that your brother has an issue against you. That means, he knows it. Else, we are saying that, if we do not confess all our sins to those we have hurt, then we cannot go to heaven. Who did the thief on the cross confess to before going to paradise with Jesus?
 If you sinned directly against someone and they know it, then you should stop your godly sacrifice, go to them and make peace. The keyword here is “Knowledge.” This is a sin that they are aware.
God locks the covenant and not your partner. That is why you confess to God and not to your partner in this case. Sins that we can make restitution are the sins for which we confess to one another and make it right. When Zacchaeus confessed to those whom he extorted, he paid them back fourfold (Lk 19:8). If you slept with someone out of marriage and you confessed to your spouse, you still cannot make it right. Will you restore your penis or vagina? That is why the Psalmist says, “Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest (Ps. 51: 4).” God is the one who holds the bond, so each party keeps that bond to him and not to the other party. That is why people who know about marriage, know that a successful marriage is not 50/50. It is giving your best to God in that marriage.
Most couples I have known who committed adultery and told their partners, they ended up losing the marriage. Adultery is not an unforgivable sin, but some people never forgive the sin of adultery, no matter what confession their spouse does. Hence, it is unwise to confess in that situation, since it would breach the bond rather than bridge the love.

Until then, adultery is a sin you must take the secret to your grave.

The Secrets of Leadership.

The secrets of leadership.
You know, most people want to be leaders, but very few are really leaders. Leadership is a very simple phenomenon, but humans make it complex. These principles I am going to share with you here have worked, and they will work anywhere. I was fortunate to have been a leader from primary school until after my college days. In all the groups I have led, I never experienced a revolt or loss of membership, and most of those under me prospered. Therefore, I will share these principles that worked in Cameroon and in Atlanta Georgia. There are at least 4 major principles every leader should master. The Jethro Principle, Inner Circle Principle, Virtue Principle and the Commission Principle.
Sometimes I see pastors with 200 members who are scared that someone would take over their church. Hahahahaha!!! I knew a woman who wanted to start a Nonprofit Organization, but she was sacred and suspicious of everyone she wanted to work with. She felt that they wanted to snatch her ministry away. Something that usually makes me laugh is how sometimes I see a school going for a field trip with 25 kids, and they have 5-10 chaperons. We went with 450-600 kids at least, and there was no chaperon. We just assigned leaders and sub leaders and subleaders like it is in the military. We merely used the military model of leadership in the upkeep. We never had a single incident or a single scandal.
 I have held different positions from head boy, labor prefect, interim pastor, youth leader, deacon, member of the education board, assistant area supervisor (six provinces) and assistant national university coordinator of 6 universities. In each case, I was the youngest who ever held that position. I had thousands at times under my supervision. The mission thought that I was too young to hold those positions, so they were afraid I would become too powerful and break the mission, but deep within me, I was a servant and not a boss to dominate my fellow humans. Each time they replaced me with a myrmidon. I ended up proving them wrong. My loyalty unto man is like unto God, and I have also always had some loyal coleaders. Loyalty begets loyalty.
The first thing to do as a leader is to have a clearly defined goal based on your vision. Under his “Brotherhood of Man”, Alexander the great embarked on conquering Europe. He wanted the whole of Europe to be one. A leader should be known for something. Mahatma Gandhi was known for Satyagraha and the freedom of Indians. MLK Jr. was known for nonviolence and equality. If you want to be a successful leader, you should come out with a clear cut vision that is bigger than you or anyone in the group. After you have a vision, then you set goals to expand that vision.  
The first goal would be to form a team of diehards who would help you to expand the vision in what we call the inner Circle principle. One thing I instilled in all my leaders was honesty and transparency. When someone accused another person, I told them to keep their report and bring it when the other person was present. I did not hear an accusation about anyone behind their backs. That eliminated gossips by 75%. Sometimes their accusers will say that they don’t want to say it in front of them, so I will say, “Then we have no case.” Jesus asked, “What is my sin?” It sometimes baffles me how some leaders gossip their subordinates, and they expect cohesion. I never held secret meetings behind others’ backs. If you did not give your point to me during the meeting, I did not entertain it after the meeting. I will ask you to keep it and bring it later. I never touched the money of any of my groups.
You have to know your leaders in what is known as the virtue principle. When I began leading a church-Full Gospel Mission Bambui, I started by visiting all the leaders in their homes. I wanted to create trust, so I created possibilities for them to trust and be loyal from the way I showed interest in their personal lives. I wanted to make them better. I knew what each of them was lacking, so I tried to solve that to the best of my capabilities. I was a servant and not a boss. People cannot be managed as things and animals; people are social beings, so they respond to the way society treats them.
The main leader needed a latrine, so I took some of my unbelieving friends, and we went and dug a latrine for him. I took some of the unbelieving students, and we went and cleared the road leading from the 3 Corners Bambui to Full Gospel Mission. It made the Fon (king) to invite me to the palace for the good work. For the first time, the Fon authorized the preaching of the gospel. My leaders who were also leaders in the palace became very popular.
While a youth coordinator, I assisted my leaders in obtaining tuition, feeding and rents help. Those who were about to fail, we looked for academic help. I brought in people who could work academically with them. I sent them to see some professors to help them. 
Something I see nowadays which is one of the biggest weaknesses in many leaders or their brand of leadership is the absence of leadership investment. They do not invest their time into the lives of their leaders. I asked a pastor one day about a leader and what the leader did, and he told me that he will have to ask him. If you have student leaders, you find out how they pay their tuition, how they earn their living, and if they are doing well in school. Such investments will be rewarded with loyalty and ultimate expansion to the vision.
I created opportunities for my leaders to talk to girls and boys they liked to see their chances of getting married. We had the highest rate of marriages and less breakups amongst all the groups around at the time. We had less scandals, no sexual assault or rape in none of our conventions, retreats or campaigns or even during my entire tenure. The vision cannot be developed out of a vacuum because the leaders do not live in a social vacuum. They live in a real world with real problems that need to be solved. One of those problems is relationship. I always taught my group members to ask anyone out they liked. Those who have been asked out should turn them down with kindness, if they did not like the askers. It is not a sin or crime to ask someone out.
The thing that is very empty nowadays is how people work together, but they do not talk love, yet they go and spend hours on the internet seeking for love that would have been picked up right there in their own close circle. If someone was abusing their privilege of repeatedly asking someone out who did not like him/her, I advised the person to turn them down and then tell them that they would bring it to the attention of the leaders.  
You do that be applying the Jethro Principle. Many leaders burn themselves out because they fail to apply this principle. The Jethro principle is forming leaders of leaders of leaders and of leaders. Leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of  fifty, leaders of twenty, leaders of  ten, leaders of five and leaders of two. I did this during my time as a youth coordinator.  When the youth had retreats of six hundred young people, we formed leaders at all levels. That is why during my tenure, there was no rebellion or scandal unlike the previous and succeeding administrations before and after me respectively. There was none because they already shared the power. Others worried for me, but I did not worry for myself. It explains why the leaders before and after me had problems. Even a stranger come to any of our meetings and speak on the first day. I remember a young girl who came one time and told us that she had a song. I gave her the floor to sing. The next Sunday, she came with 6 of her friends. A young man came to the meeting for the first time, and he told me that he had a word. I  allowed him to speak. He ended up becoming one of our leaders. Openness begets freshness, and freshness brings growth.
As a leader, I knew the names of my inner circle. I had their backs. They did not doubt it; they saw it whenever someone brought an accusation against them. I delegated Powers to them. When they faltered, I rebuked them too openly. I remember one of my leaders who made some young people to stay up all night because they were caught outside after their bed time during a convention. When I was told, I called an immediate meeting, and told him in front of all the other leaders that it was wrong and unacceptable. I gave them permission to call me to order. Some of them did it in a brutal way that people might think it was disrespectful, but I always told them that I gave him the permission to do so because I believe that we are different, even in the way we speak and write.  Jesus showed that truth does not need to be sugarcoated, no matter how offensive it is. When he was brought before the high priest to defend himself, a soldier who did not like his answer smote him on the cheek. Jesus then said to him, “If I have spoken evil, bear witness of the evil: but if well, why smitest thou me?” If what the defendant says is false, you prove the contrary, but if they are saying the right thing, you leave it alone. 
 One time we were arguing with a young woman who thought that my writing was flawed with grammatical errors, so we decided to send her paragraph and mine to a third party who said that although my sentences were awkward, they had no grammatical mistakes. Instead, he pointed mistakes in hers. Michael Johnson ran awkwardly, but that did not make him a bad runner. Rick Barry threw free-throws in awkward manner, yet he still scored. We have to accept our diversity, even in our leadership.
Surprisingly, some leaders want to do everything. If you are a leader who wants great and lasting impact, you should use the Jethro principle of delegating powers to subalterns.
The next thing you do is the commission principle. This is a principle that Jesus used to great effect. You should assign responsibilities by what people are good at. I did not have music skills, but we had one of the best youth choirs in Yaoundé in those days. I know people who were well musically gifted like Samson Baron, Petit Joe, Jacob Mandema, Lily Kwenga, Lucie Kemoe, Renee Paule, Ernestine Lobe and many others. I will say, Samson, I want you to select the best, and the best he selected. Sometimes, people would askef me to override his decisions, but I always turned that down. When you delegate powers, show the delegate that you trust them. What commissioning people does is that it makes them masters of their fields and creates in them a sense of ownership of the vision. One strategy we used in growing our membership was for all members to bring in new members. Whenever we went to a convention, there was a rule that no two people from the same local chapter could sit together. People must sit with new people they have never met until they left.
I changed the culture in the university where speakers came from the outside. The students themselves became the speakers. That made many of them to grow and assume responsibilities. I invited outsiders to serve as judges, but the Wednesday teachings were done by the students. The same people who had been under previous leaderships, and they were never given the opportunities. They brought their own invitees who ended up staying. That is leadership by commission!
A leader must be resolute. One day we had an evening campaign meeting at 6 Pm. We were about 5 miles away from the campaign grounds. At 4:30 P.M, it began to rain heavily. I assembled everyone to get ready because we had to leave, but it continued to rain. My assistant suggested that we should cancel the meeting for that evening. I explained to him that he reminded me of Jannes and Jambres. I asked him what Moses did with the Red Sea. What did Jesus do with the storm? I asked him again. In each question, he gave the right answer. Then I asked him if God was different. I knew that God was bigger than the weather; he could stop the rain at any time. I have seen Him do great miracles, so I was counting on God doing it again. I ordered everyone to enter into the rain. Then I prayed. After I prayed, we began to run, and the rain immediately ceased. By the time we reached the campaign grounds, our wet bodies were now dried. That incident increased the faith of many and encouraged many to count on God. My vision has always been for people to trust God, so this was a fulfillment.

Until then, a good leader is a servant of the people.

Dance for Jesus and you will never suffer?



Sesekou Arrey-Mbi, the honorable Mfor Ngbe of Atlanta, 
This is your son speaking! This reply is in relation o the video above. I know that a prophet is never great in his home town, so I bear no such authority to make any objections, safe that which is recorded in the Book. Behold the voice of God speaking, " If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable." I Corinthians 15:19. What then shall we say, if Jesus is only to be worshipped as a terrestrial goodies ATM? Why did the disciples suffer the cross, that they were killed, if we worship God only so that we are no more sick, so we can have wives and husbands, so our businesses shall flourish?  
Did we ever read Paul tell Timothy, “Indeed, all who desire to live godly lives in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.” (2 Tim 3:12). Stephen was stoned to death. I am sure he was not dancing Jesus, or could he, when he was stoned and left in the street? I heard Jesus ask, "What shall it profit a man if he shall gain the whole world and lose his soul? What shall a man give in exchange for his soul?" Perhaps all those who dance for Jesus and are childless are wasting their time. Perhaps those who dance Jesus, were called and sent like Apostle Paul, yet lived with chronic diseases did not dance God enough. Perhaps their moves were not that good enough! 
Behold my people, we were nor created to gain the whole world. The whole purpose for which man was created is to fear God and keep his commandments.(Ecc 12:13). Jesus rebuked the people, “"Woe to you when all men speak well of you, for their fathers used to treat the false prophets in the same way.” (Lk 6:26). Just above that verse, it reads, “Woe to you who are well fed now, for you will hunger. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.” The world loves its own because, “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.” Why then would anyone who loves and dances Jesus, be loved by the world that hated Him, up to killing him in the cruelest way a man should ever be killed?
If all our worship is to be beneficiaries of earthly things, then why would it seem to Paul “that God has displayed us apostles at the end of the procession, like prisoners appointed for death? We have become a spectacle to the whole world, to angels as well as to men.” Why must the apostle be at the end of the procession? Why leave us in bondage of the dearth that rapes us of our affluence and good life?
In that very crowd, there were and there are many who danced for Jesus and waved the white handkerchief greatly in spirit and in truth, yet have been bedfellows with poverty, sickness, disappointments, failures, poor business, bad kids, barrenness and many more.
My pastor with whom I ate lunch with almost every Wednesday was hit by a car, and he died a few days later. What shall I tell him? That his worship and dances for Jesus were in vain, else why would he be hit by a car? How can the prophet in the video say that, “If you worship Jesus, you no go suffer? If you worship Jesus, you become a big man. You become a billionaire. You worship Jesus, sickness go? You worship Jesus, good husband. You worship Jesus, you buy a new car. You worship Jesus you buy a new Jeep.” 
Is it everybody who has a good car, who is a billionaire, healthy, has a Jeep dancing for Jesus? In other words, we can now know the true dancers of Jesus from their possessions. Wouldn't it be harder for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God than for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle? What about those who cannot dance because they are disabled? Would they too go to heaven? Would they too please Jesus? If it is not so, then the prophet has gone overboard.  
Therefore, hear ye my people, Jesus did not come so that we only enjoy the things of this world. Jesus came so that we may have life abundantly, whether in dearth or in plenty, whether in sickness or in health, whether in trial or in peace that we may worship him in spirit and in truth for our recompense. I adjure you to take these words that were given to the Hebrews:

For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance. Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise.  Hebrews 10:34-36.

Until then, “… ‘Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.’”

The Phoniness of American Age of Consent.


When the news broke out that 50 year old: Tad Cummins has “kidnapped” 15 year old Mary Catherine 'Elizabeth' Thomas, the reactions have been mixed, with the majority calling for every pint of Tad’s blood. The whole thing to me is some hypocritical melodrama. The excitement or lack thereof about the age of consent in America is only good for the Crucible or the Minister’s Back Veil. At some point, the country becomes a laughingstock. There are those who think that he has committed the unpardonable sin while others do not think so. He might have broken the law, and he has also sinned because he was married at the time; however, it is not because of her age. This paper is specifically geared towards dealing with the age disparity issue. I don’t see it as a moral failure based on the age disparity. If you attended a high school or college with a “Safe Zone” where you were not taught to think over others’ opinions but to seek a refuge so that you are not offended, this writing is not for you. If you attended a high school or a university where you were allowed to think for yourself, then you can continue.
Let me start by addressing those who are crying on top of their lungs that Tad is a monster for being 50 and dating a 15 year old girl. My German friend told me that in Germany, when a girl is 16, she can sleep with anyone she likes; that is why you have 16 years old girls standing by the street as sex workers. They sleep with even 75 years old, and no one has remorse about it, so we know you people with your projections. Tin in 0
This country as a whole is full of hypocrisy. When news came out that the Russians have hacked into our systems, the whole country cried like a lioness was mourning her cubs. Trump had two sentences to Bill O’Reilly, “’What do you think? Our country’s so innocent?’”[1] He was vindicated when WikiLeaks made the FBI and CIA files dump on March 7, 2017. Therein, it exposed how the US has been hacking other countries. 
Now, suffer that I take you back again to the Monica Lewinsky’s scandal of 1998. During the impeachment proceedings, there were both Republican and Democratic Congressmen who were vehement that Clinton had done what Satan himself could not do, sleep with an intern. These are some of them who were against Clinton. They were later found to be unclean. Bob Barr was having an affair while married to his second wife. Dan Burton who even had a love child from an affair said this, “"No one, regardless of what party they serve, no one, regardless of what branch of government they serve, should be allowed to get away with these alleged sexual improprieties...." Imagine that he was not exposed, he would have been the saint in that sinful Congress. Robert Livingston out rightly asked Clinton to resign while he himself was having an affair with another woman. Do you see that simply because people are condemning the teacher, they are not clean themselves? The one that even made me cry on that day was that of Newt Gingrich. He was like my idol. He was a bulldog on Clinton during the Monica Lewinsky saga, but he too was having an affair while married to his second wife. The final hypocrite during that saga was Henry Hyde. He was married himself while having an affair with a married woman. Remember that all of them only resigned when they were exposed. If they were not busted, they would have been pretending like Clinton was the only “Devil.” in that house of "saints." 
How many of you who were not caught blame others today? How many of you are living very sinful lives that if you died today, even Satan will reject your soul? Yet, you have the temerity to shout. This is one of those reasons why I say that the government should wiretap every American, so that in times like this, your dossiers could be brought to bare. That way, only those who bear no sin can cast the first stone.
Nonetheless, that does not mean that what the teacher did was right. He broke the law because in the US, the age of consent is 16 in 31 US states, and only 12 have it as 18. In other countries, the age of consent ranges from 9 and above. Since we are saying that a 15 year old cannot enter into a relationship with a 50 year old man, would it then mean that in Alabama where they could wed a 14 year old to a 40 year old man with parental permission, the entire state does not know that the 14 year old girl cannot think? If Tad who is 50 cannot date a 15 year old because it is evil and the girl is not mature, why wed a 14 year old to a 40 year man? 
I was laughing when I ran through a comment section that said that “In Alaska, it would never happen.” In Alaska, you could get married if you are 14 with a judge's permission (because of no fault). You should not take my word for the gospel, so you take time and look at their laws here. Before the 14 year old gets married, she could be dating the 50 year old man first. It does not mean that Tad is having sex with the girl because they could be chaste. In Arizona, California and Connecticut, there is no minimum age for marriage, if the parents and judge could approve it. In Massachusetts, a girl could get married at 12 and the man at 14. If the 15 year old is not grown enough, why then do these states allow these marriages at these ages? Using the FBI and police resources to pursue the teacher on bases of the girl’s age is mere drama and hypocrisy. They should use those resources for those unsolved murders. They should use those resources to search for those black girls who are truly  missing; otherwise, this is a waste of resources. Simply because she is young does not mean that she was kidnapped. Why would there be a nationwide manhunt when the people of Massachusetts wed their daughters at 12? That is hypocrisy because the girl is 15, three years older than the ones they wed in their states. I hear people say that the girl is still a child, so she cannot consent.
Do you remember Jeremy Forest of England who ran away with a 15 year old? The girl said that he persuaded the teacher to run away with her. The girl “told how he saved her from potential suicide by going away with her.”[2] The parents and the people do not want to acknowledge that their princess has run away with the prince. I may just remind them of the words of Jasmine in Aladdin " to Jafar, "He didn't kidnap me; I ran away." Folks, just accept that he did not kidnap the girl; she ran away with the one she loved. 
I still believe that the 14 year old girl who committed suicide after having been bounced from 14 foster care homes would have still been alive had she found someone (14 or 50) who loved her. Would we have preferred that she killed herself than run away with an older guy who will help her to live and be happy? My issue is the fact that right in the US, there is disparity. In Alaska and Massachusetts, the marriage age could be 14 and 12 respectively, depending on the judge and parents consent. How come 15 is immature to date, but 12 and 14 are mature to marry? Which is more serious: marriage or dating? What I am saying is that, it is a crime and a sin not because she is 15 but because he is married, and the age of consent in Tennessee is 18. The argument that the girl is not mature enough has been answered by those States with the marriage age below 15. Simply because he is 50 and she is 15 does not mean that he kidnapped her. Kidnapped is against one's will, and the events leading to their departure don't​ show that.
A few years back, I heard the story of a 14 year old student from Mexico whose bread winning father was deported. To escape her quagmire, she began to roam the streets up and down, and the very men who said that she  was not of age were picking her up to taste her theobroma cacao for a minimal fee. Had one of her teachers or an older man taken her in as a lover, there would have been an outcry, yet there was none that her most priced possession was now at the mercy of the least filthy bidder. How many young women below 15 are selling themselves in our streets on their own volition, and how many who are condemning Tad today are buying it without compunction? 
I think that it is high time for the US to keep their sanctimony aside and allow lovers to decide their fates, except in a case of actual crime. It is preposterous and presumptuous to conclude that he took her by force or that they have been having sex. As for the many of you crying to be more righteous than Tad Cummins, WikiLeaks is just by the corner. You will be exposed.
Notwithstanding, he would be sinning against God by committing desertion and adultery  with the girl, and he would be breaking the law, if he has sex with the 15 year old because the age of consent is 18 in his state of Tennessee. However, the age difference should not make it more sinful or more of a crime than if the girl was 16, 17 and he was 18. Therefore, 15 should not be regarded as a period of nonage. How young Elizabeth is should not be the crux of this matter because there are states allowing 12 years old to get married. There are even countries where 12 years old could marry. The only two things we should look at should be the law and the sin. He has sinned because he is still married, but he is having a relationship with another woman, and he will break the law, if he sleeps with a girl below the age of consent in his state. Nevertheless, the crime is not proportionate to the sanctimonious drama.

Until then, I don’t think that the outcry fits the crime.

Oh, Brother Rowden, Where Art Thou?

Oh, Brother Mark Rowden.

Oh brother, where art thou?
Heaven is our reunion spot.
You are too hasty to go ahead.
I would have said too early.
If earth is better than heaven.

Oh brother, where art thou?
You were a man of faith.
You are an exemplary brother.
Your quick pace there yonder.
Leaves us with daily tears.

Oh brother, where art thou?
My eyes swim round the church.
As if you are hidden in a pew.
Rowden here, you answer.
Henceforth, Rowden absent.

Oh brother, where art thou?
The wind has carried thy ashes.
From dust you were made.
Unto dust you have returned.
The destiny of all mankind.

Oh brother, where art thou?
Brief terrestrial visit has been .
Yet impactful to acquaintances
Keep the place well for us, brother!
We also will some day make the reunion.

Southern Cameroons Should Keep Their Schools Closed For Their Own Good.

I hear talks of schools reopening because children can no more stay home. Is it that all those who were arrested have been released, or is...
