Great Quotations

Every available space in Benin City is now being taken over by churches. Not by cottage, small or medium scale enterprises/industries. Yet every year we turn out graduates from our tertiary institutions. Every now & then poor parents begged borrowed or stole to see their children through school. It is as if church owners are praying and/or waiting for industries to wind up so that they can build the house of "God business" therein. From Downtown Sapele Road to Ugbowo & to every nook & cranny of d City, d story is d same. Now, what hope does this portent for d future of employment in our society, knowing that govt. alone cannot employ our teeming youths seeking employment out there?" -- Hon G N Agharese

"Christianity is a money making and masses control religion while the Bible is m.c.m mind control manual.Jesus never physically walk this earth.its high time black Africans who were the first to practice real spirituality stopped defending what the oppressors of their ancestors and the inventors of racism wrote in a book.let the Jews defend Judaism with proofs, let the Europeans defend christianity with proofs and let the Arabs defend Islam with proofs.African defenders of foreign faiths where is your own spirituality and which Jew, European or Arab that is defending African spirituality ?. Wise up people and defend only your ancestry." - Samson Montana 


"The great benefit of science is that it can contribute tremendously to the alleviation of suffering at the physical level, but it is only through the cultivation of the qualities of the human heart and the transformation of our attitudes that we can begin to address and overcome our mental suffering... We need both, since the alleviation of suffering must take place at both the physical and the psychological levels." - Dalai Lama


"We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the world -- its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; see the world as it is and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by intelligence and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror that comes from it. The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self-respecting human beings. We ought to stand up and look the world frankly in the face. We ought to make the best we can of the world, and if it is not so good as we wish, after all it will still be better than what these others have made of it in all these ages. A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men. It needs a fearless outlook and a free intelligence. It needs hope for the future, not looking back all the time toward a past that is dead, which we trust will be far surpassed by the future that our intelligence can create."-- By Bertrand Russell 



"We must give up that silly idea of folding our hands and waiting upon God to do everything for us. If God intended that, He would not have given us a mind, He would not have given us intelligence, He would not have given us his soul, He would not have placed us here in the midst of creation, and sorrounded us with all the beautiful things of nature. What so ever you want in life you must make your mind to do it for yourself and accomplish it for yourself whether it is rearing a home, expanding an empire, if you want to do it you must do it for yourself and then God will bless the effort because he will realise that you are using your intelligence for the BEST." - Marcus Garvey


"I was created to think for myself first and foremost. I can thereafter decide to take a little from your ideas, If I like, and incorporate it in mine. My brain was created to critically analyze issues and situations. That's why I was created. Use your GOD given brains and emotions and THINK." - Akhigbe Ikhilor

-(via facebook forum)


"Our God is no filth but ecclesiastical... Just we've been nurtured in ignorance...witnessed in ignorance, crusading ignorantly ignorance...No man shares his god,every good god is a secret.. you factually don't become a Jew because you believe in Judaism and you can't become a Christian because you believe in Christ...The African is not a christian or a moslem but a trado-environmentalist...A man who insults his god has no Shadow..I am the adherent to my forefathers custom and tradition..Be like or alike.." - Osakhiwuomwan Gabriel Ehioghiren (via facebook)


"there is no God or Devil,but there is Good and Evil. What the white man did was to take away 1 o from Good and called it God and added D to evil and called it Devil,so you will no-longer blame him for his evil and instead blame the devil he created and he inturn say's the Devil made me do it. Wise up people,wake up from your slumber dream,the truth is out there,but you only see it,if you are searching for the truth,the Bible said seek and ye shall find."

. -- By Nosa Idehen [via facebook]

"Mind can be the enemy and mind can also be the friend. 
It is the mind that binds and it is the mind that liberates. 
When the mind is attached to objects, which are transitory and impermanent, this is the mind that binds. This is the mind that is an enemy. But a mind that does not abide anywhere, on any object, is a mind that is your friend. This is the mind that liberates. It all depends on you, on what kind of company you keep in your mind".
-- Gilles Chamboraire



''God doesn't exist ! It is the myopic egotism of man that says God created man in His own image..! Does God have 1 head 2 eyes, two legs etc? God didn't create the world in 7 days, heaven is not in the skies.. there are myriads of planets, universes, galaxies and cosmic bodies out there, God didn't create man in one day! And follow the examples of some of these guys who have given most of their cash to practical humane charities rather than enriching pastors and building churches and mosques that God CAN'T LIVE in !'' - Greg Oshobugie. (Via facebook)


Typical Nigerian mentality "only God will help us" "only God can touch our leaders so they realize what they're doing". If there is a God he's forgotten about Africa a long time ago. God cannot do anything for you, stop wasting your time and resources praying to a deity that cannot answer or help you. Nigerians you need to take matter into your hands and revolutionize this "banana republic" government because you are your only hope not God... – Jack White.


"I have talked to many Christian fanatics,,especially the Nigerian version,.(like these blind folded sheeps) and realize that they use religion as a security blanket,when there is no hope to resolving their social-economic problems. The worst part about their religion is the fact, that it was based on greed and control.The hard facts and our own common sense should have buried this myth a long time ago.The problem about this bondage is like any smart scam .Christianity is able to morph like an evolving disease.most of the time Christianity is administered at an early age (much like immunization)
once its instilled in a young carrier at such an impressionable age its very hard to shake.However,we are well equipped to debunk,diagnose this mental virus! How can we possibly know where we are going when we do not know where we have been.Christianity is not a religion its a business." - Oguega Eziza Igodomigodo (Via Facebook forum)


Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV:
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.


"African Gods different from Jehovah and Yahwee.
Osanobua is not the father of bastard jesus, Osanobua is the father of the three Ogisos. Abasi has no connection to joseph's wife, Abasi had a wife Atai, that gave him 2 lovely kids. Eledumare didn't have any relationship with Joseph, Jecob, Isaiah, Isaac, Eledumare only send Oduduwa to deliver his message. Chukwu is not Jehovah or Yahwee, Chukwu believe in using home pets like dog and goat to deliver humanity his message. According to classics and mythology All the African Almighty Gods have nothing in common with Jewish-Arab Almighty Gods and they have no relationship with bible, quran and toran. The idea that some illegitimate son of some jewish idol died for an African man is absurd. I wish to distant myself and my kinsmen from that absurdity. You don't tell a jewish or an european man that the son of some African god died for their sin. Honestly it is an insult to tell me a foreign bastard died for me and my people. "Osanobua had no relationship with Joseph's wife, he is unconnected to David, Jecob, Samual, but has a strong relationship with all the Obas of Bini Kingdom and the daughters and sons of Igodomigodo, Osanobua is the God of all who embodies the virtues of the ogisos. Hence it is ridiculous for anyone to pray to Osanobua and be saying in the name of Jesus, because Osanobua needs no jesus to get to you or anyone." - Wake up son!. " - Friday R Inoyo


There were no group of people called the Israelis or Israelites in times of old. All we had then were the Hibarous or Hebrews.
Those claiming to be Israelis today living in the state of Israel are actually European Ashkenazi who subscribe to the Hebrew religion of Judaism .
The name ISRAEL originated from the AGIA TRIADOS,TRIA DEI OR THE THREE GODS(HOLY TRINITY) OF ISIS wife of OSIRIS, RA the Egyptian Sun God and EL a major near east God or Semitic ELOHIM.
IS = ISIS, OSIRIS, an Egyptian powerful goddess,
RA = RA, AMUN RA ,Egyptian sun god and 
EL = EL, ELOHIM, god of power,amazing wealth ( EL-ITES, the ELITE club )

Efosamson Asemontana


"Africans should stop worshipping this white man picture, what nonsense! I called this mental slavery. why on earth will Africans worship a white man image and called him Jesus. during Jesus days on earth was there anything like camera? if NO then how did they get this picture? the guy in that photo is just a mere actor and now almost all the Africans homes and place of worships got this guy photo and they worshipped his image and called him Jesus. if Africans don't stop this mental slavery then there's no way Africa can move forward."

“This is a very important distinction, because there are numerous kinds of proofs we could point to in order to show the historicity of our ultimate proof of the claim that Jesus is God, the resurrection. For proof of the resurrection, we could point to the historicity of Jesus himself, how the body was never found, that other prophecies of Jesus came true, and that multiple eyewitness accounts record the resurrection for us.” – Earlier in the Article you talk about bad logic, but here you use the same bad logic. Eyewitness accounts didn’t record the resurrection, people 200 years after Jesus’ death wrote The Bible, and there are no other records for this than The Bible. Many bodies from this time era were also not found. Jesus also failed to complete many of the prophecies promised. You basically said “Since a guy named Jesus existed back then, he must have been God.” which is bad logic as well.

“The burden of proof is still on the one making the claim that Christianity is false to prove why that is so.” – This is absolutely false, burden of proof is on the one who makes the claim. If Person A claims to be able to jump 100 feet in the air, and Person B says that this is untrue. It is Person A’s responsibility to display his capability.

” Discrediting one source of proof may make it more difficult to prove that it did indeed happen, but it does not then follow that Christianity is false because of this – it simply means there is less evidence to support its being true.” – This is true, and so far there is a mountain more evidence supporting Evolution than Christianity.

If you wish to defend The Bible against the Contradiction Claim, all you have to say is that God intentionally contradicts himself, and being the all powerful being he is, this is allowed. So basically, he can because he is God. But this is circular logic and that is also bad logic. And also it would mean that God’s word is untrustworthy and you cannot believe what he is telling you therefore you should not accept his message.

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. I am not afraid.”

– Marcus Aurelius

Aroboinosen Iduh Sure, the bible was already in existence before King James worked on his. i think people like Trisha Sandra need to be educated that my submissions are a year long study and not pre-supposed post, repost or copy and paste exercise.

many of your pastors today do not know about the original Greek and Hebrew works of the bible and the corrupted Latin version that is to say, it was first translated to Latin from its original Greek and Hebrew versions. i doubt if they have taught you in church about the works of William Tyndale, the man who invented the English language we speak today and his efforts in translating the original text from Hebrew and Greek to English, how he was arrested for 500 days and burned on October 6th 1636 for trying to translate the bible. I doubt if you know about the Bishop's bible, How Myles Coverdale improved on the works of William and had the Convadale bible, i am even sure you probably have not been taught about the Geneva bible which was the first bible with Verses as improved by the works of John kelvin, William and others. you probably do not know it was a crime to personally teach the bible to your kids in England without the supervision of a priest and was punishable by burning the individual to death.

i am not actually after the composition of the bible, but i want someone to debunk as false that king James was not the Author of the first Bible of Demonology.

I think it is high time we start waking up our black brothers and sisters and showing them the truth. i think it is high time we stop being blinded by Religion and absolute stupidity.
how do you feel when i shock you with the stunning truth that the same man king James 1566-1625 who gave you your most cherished version of the bible in 1611 was the same man who wrote the first bible of Demonology in 1597?

How do you feel? comfortable? surprised? a feeling that something is fishing? in doubt? do u feel determined to know the truth? just research and read because everything are in books.

Are African Pastors representing God or their pockets?
Time to reason again: It'll hardly have been lost on anyone that the news media in recent times have repeated showcased weird and disturbing stories of self-styled African 'Men of God', who practice their understanding of the Christian religion in highly questionable manners. Beginning from the command on congregation to eat grass like cows down to reports of a pastoral order on his congregation to go naked in the name of worship, the game of worshipping God has strongly descended to the garbage pit of 'anything goes' in hitting the headlines. The message of people trying to outdo each other in spectacular madness is no longer concealed.
When they run short of miracles that are generally fraudulent, they take on political predictions to attract followers like the merchandising of a unique selling point. The guessing game of winners and losers, feeble and strong, dying and standing are the least that happen in electoral periods. When a guessing game comes true, prophesies are celebrated. When they fail, it is still a mystery to me how the funny 'Men of God' manage to sway their followers to stay on believing in them. Such is the fallacy that defines a trend of mass stupefaction in Africa.
Without the willingly submissive and helpless folks, pastors will not thrive on the wealth that they gather from the poor and needy. They will not buy private jets, drive the most luxurious cars, wear designer dresses and exemplify themselves as testimonies of God's blessing while they craft and design their strategies of fooling the crowd in their private retreat. Yet people are helpless in African states without intelligent governance to educate the people and wake them up to reality. The non-affordability of medical care leaves people at the mercy of prayer, belief, and miracles. The smart and eloquent ones prey on them and leave them in the dungeon of decapitation and erosion of the spirit to be a man.
Why is Africa in this state? Why is education not making the desired impact on the educated class to spread the spirit of rational education and teach people to question the dubious 'Word of God' and 'Criminal miracles' arranged by smart gangs of exploiters?
Because of the unemployment in the country our graduates become overnight pastors. No more traditional Babalawo but today imaginary pastors to meet their daily need.
There are no more churches in Africa. There are circus of entertainment
