Great Quotations

"CHURCH BUSINESS, THE BEST BUSINESS.
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

--------------------

"ORIGIN OF THE NAME ISRAEL OR ISRAELITES.
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 )
IS-RA-EL = ISRAEL, ISRAELIS,ISRAELITES.
" - 
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."

-------------------------------------------------

"Religion is a slave mentality.
Religious fundamentalism is used by the rulers of society to distract citizens from their inherent corruption. Religion inspires hatred and wars, crusades and genocides. Religious fundamentalism is a violent idea that is inherent in all religions. Religion keeps you focus on superstitions instead of the real life injustices that you face each day. Religion destroys the desire for freedom. Religion is used to turn you into a spellbound fool. Religion is a corporation and you're the one that keeps it from going bankrupt with your delusional faith. The wealthy want you to believe in god's goodness, so that you may not look at their inherent rottenness. Stop praying and start thinking revolution, freedom, a bold new humanity."

 

"

"What has make this so called religion win the minds of our brother and sisters today is nothing but structure.
We are on a "psychological warfare"
I have said this here so many times.

Is either we eqiuped ourselves and dive into the war or better live it alone the way it is.because going inside without been eqiuped is just like sucide.

What am trying to say is this.
In Bene Republic where I have been few times,89 percent practice Africa spirituality.why? How?
It just because it is more organized.
So we that claim now we know that religion is shit,we must unite,organize and eqiuped our system with some psychological and metaphysical ingredients to make our food sweet...
We have to unite everyone and put what we have together to male our thing look nice.

That why you see pastors spending so much money on musical instrument.so that the music you hear there will stimulate and programme your Brain to that every sunday worship. It is a mind game.
And we most be wise if not we will just deppopulate ourselves for nothing and the international body offcures will give support and solidarity to the church..." - Nosa Duke

Christian Identity is just a new kid on the block of White Protestant Supremacy - the earliest such group was the infamous Ku Klux Klan. Too few people realize that the KKK was founded as a Christian organization and still sees itself in terms of defending true Christianity. Especially in the earliest days, Klansmen openly recruited in churches (white and segregated, of course), attracting members from all strata of society, including the clergy.

Although Klan ceremonies have varied greatly, one common form will include an American flag, a cross, and a Bible opened to Romans 12, exhorting Christians to "godly conduct, godly nature." Also common is a sword representing the war against all enemies of the Christian life an the American "Christian Nation." Opening and closing prayers may often include "The living Christ is a Klansman's criterion of character." The origin of a burning cross is unclear - it may stem from the ancient Scottish tradition of burning a cross on a hill to call together the clans, or it may be representative of spreading the light of the True Cross in an effort to promote Christian faith.

"Another incongruity in Christianity is that the theory of Christian ethics to be found in the New Testament seems irrelevant or indefensible to many morally sensitive people including many contemporary Christians. Yet this theory is supposed to be the basis of the Christian morality. Jesus' otherworldliness, harshness, demands for blind obedience, and vindictiveness are not only morally unacceptable but conflict with the claim that he is morally perfect.[17] Moreover, his tacit approval of slavery makes him an inappropriate ethical model.
Once again it is important to note that my thesis does not presuppose that Christianity is false. Even if Christianity were true, there would be an incongruity between Christians holding up Jesus as the moral ideal and his problematic ethical views. Christians believe that Jesus is their moral ideal and yet Jesus has serious moral flaws that conflict with this ideal.
Let us consider the case of slavery in more detail. Although this practice was common in Jesus' own world, there is no evidence that he criticized it." - details at http://www.infidels.org/library/modern/michael_martin/xtianity_absu...

"Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because they spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those from whom you fear disobedience, admonish them and forsake them in beds apart, and beat them."
---Quran 4:34, "Women," Dawood, p. 83" source: http://www.truthbeknown.com/islamquotes.htm#.UZDB4qLwnGs

"I have learnt not to waste my time arguing with religious folk about their GUTTER RELIGIONS that SUBJUGATE WOMEN and ABUSE CHILDREN.
Mohammed WAS A PAEDOPHILE and so are the CATHOLIC PRIESTS who run the Vatican.

Mohammed was a DESERT DWELLING ILLITERATE SAVAGE and you can see the evidence in the actions of his followers.

Religion in Edo State.

The freedom to worship and believe in any religion is one of the features for which Edo State is known. This is why there has never been any incidence of religious violence in the state. Edo State has 3 main relgions..

Christianity- Some of the christian ministries in the state are
Miracle assembly
Voice of freedom
Believer's Ministry
Christ Embassy,
Family Intercessory Ministries
Redeemed Christian Church
Winners Chapel
Church of God Mission
St. Joseph Catholic Church
St. Paul's Anglican Church, etc

2 Islamic Religion- There are various mosques all over the state

3. Traditional Worship- This is for people who believe in the traditional worship. The biggest place of worship in the state for the adherents of this faith is the Holy Arousa Cathedral in Benin City.

"When we talk adding financial value in our land, we have to be willing to confront religion. It is a major drain on us, because, our works are translated into cash and the cash finds its way to religious institutions that adds minimal or exchangeable (we can invest in counseling centers o motivational speaking centers) value. Our money also finds a way to leave us to foreign lands, thus our sweat and blood.

What I continue to find amazing is the fact that christians refuse to see a basic fact, Palestine with a capital in Jerusalem was under Roman occupation when Jesus lived. And Apostle Paul wrote from a prison. Translation; "turn the other cheek when slapped in one" maybe a survival message under a brutal occupation. "We wrestle not against flesh and blood" may also mean a reference to the occupiers at the time. "I am not here to unite, but to scatter......." (Jesus Christ), may also be a reference to the occupiers. We did see the result of Jesus "civill disobedience," the ultimate fall of the Roman Empire. We are also witnesses to Dr. King, Mandela, Gandhi, ........, and our very own Gani Fawehimi (the fall of Abacha.

We can win this war as a people without firing a single shot, "yes we can." What I believe is important is our ability to be critical in our assessment of things, we have to cultivate a new culture reading between the lines. This is when I know we can begin to self propel and start defining who we are as a people.

I do not come against anything that gives anyone joy, you can belong to any religious sect you choose. What I advocate is, use of your natural endowment; your brain." -- Joseph Edigin,

Voodoo sacrifice in the Christian Bible.

Leviticus 14

14 And the priest shall take some of the blood of the trespass offering, and the priest shall put it upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot:

49 To purify the house he is to take two birds and some cedar wood, scarlet yarn and hyssop.
50 He shall kill one of the birds over fresh water in a clay pot.
51 Then he is to take the cedar wood, the hyssop, the scarlet yarn and the live bird, dip them into the blood of the dead bird and the fresh water, and sprinkle the house seven times.
52 He shall purify the house with the bird’s blood, the fresh water, the live bird, the cedar wood, the hyssop and the scarlet yarn.
53 Then he is to release the live bird in the open fields outside the town. In this way he will make atonement for the house, and it will be clean. Be wise, and return back to your ancestors
