Nigerian Prophet TB Joshua Speaks Again On North Korea

Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua reminded his teeming followers on Facebook today about a prophetic message he released almost two weeks ago about the volatile nation of North Korea.  On Sunday April 16th 2017, Joshua thanked his congregants and viewers for their prayers, referring to a previous prophetic message he gave about mounting tensions between the super-power nations. During his message, the cleric then referred to the missile test conducted by North Korea, adding that their leader Kim Jong-Un would not relent in testing such weapons in order to show his…

Jehovah’s Witnesses Don’t Belong With The Rest Of The World!

The “Good News” as presented by our smooth-talking, modestly dressed and frequent unexpected guests- The Jehovah’s Witnesses, who by the way, always tend to show up at the wrong time, isn’t as particularly exciting as it sounds. Asides the willingness of Witnesses, who are always equipped with materials to engage you in either brief or extensive debates (depending on your energy level and willpower for the day) in defense of their claim as the only “true religion” while others are viewed as “demonically inspired” (which could piss you off a…

Trumpism and the ethics of climate change denial

In recent years, President Donald Trump has used his Twitter account @realDonalTrump to share his thoughts on climate change – for example, in December 2013 he tweeted: “…global warming is a total, and very expensive hoax.” And in January 2014, Trump asks: “Is our country still spending money on the GLOBAL WARMING HOAX?” In September 2016, Kellyanne Conway clarified the administration’s position, suggesting that climate change exists but is “naturally occurring.” The administration’s official position, however, does not avoid the epistemic and moral pitfalls in adopting a hypothesis which the…

A Sad Day For Turkey

The razor-thin victory (51.3% to 48.7%) of Turkey’s President Erdogan in the referendum held on April 16 in fact denies Erdogan the mandate to govern with the sweeping powers the new constitution grants the President, especially when the results of the referendum are seriously contested. Even if there was no outright fraud or irregularities in the votes (which by all accounts were rampant), the conditions under which the referendum was held made a mockery of free and fair elections. Given Erdogan’s domestic and foreign policy conduct leading up to the…

Modern Civilization vs Biblical Method Of Parental Discipline

The irreconcilable catfight between modern civilization and some basic tenets of the Bible, continues to degenerate in different dimensions. One of which, includes: Choosing the most appropriate method of parental discipline. Sequel to the heightened attention human/child rights receive globally (well, at least in countries of advanced civilization), people of divergent opinions- Atheists, ex-Christians, liberal and non-committal Christians, and many other categories of freethinkers, consider it a failure and large indiscretion on the part of the Bible, to suggest the use of the “rod” in enforcing discipline on a child….

Gambia: Massive US visa refusals as a result of Trump’s immigration Policies

A family member got refused a visa to the US this week even though they had close to a million dalasis and have traveled extensively in the past. They currently even hold a UK visa, which is  due to expire in 2022. After enquiries, her daughter was told by someone working at the embassy that there is currently a restricted quota placed on the Gambia hence the numerous refusals. I wanted to ask if you are aware of this, as I know last year the State Department said the visa…

Why it is treacherous to disrespect Judas Iscariot!

The Christian Easter festivities have hurriedly come and gone, but one name has remarkably stayed stuck on the lips of a large portion of Christians. As often the case every year, this mysterious name continues to grow even more popular than the celebrated occasion. Judas Iscariot: A name notoriously synonymous with greed, betrayal and treason. A name heavily loathed by children, despised by adults and provides every preacher with a great point of reference to knock a sermon into shape, and get a sober audience nodding along. A name famous…

Seeing Africa Through The Eyes Of The Average American Youth

I can’t disagree much with the glowing report that America has become very diverse, and as a result, opinions towards Africa (depending on who’s asked), may have advanced in some quarters. Nonetheless, the negative stereotype (not necessarily racist) about Africa, still visibly hangs in a corner, most notably among American Youths. Having interacted with a tangible number of Americans through the internet, coupled with the steady feedbacks I receive from some Africans resident in the United States, it has served as an amazing eye-opener for me, as I made polite…
