Tasha Cobbs ft Nicki Minaj: A Critical View on Why Spirits Should Not Mix

"Spirits don't mix" - Tasha Cobbs ft Nicki Minaj If you drink, read that again. Lol. The best advice my dad ever gave me was "spirits don't mix". He was referring to both the physical spirits and the " spiritual" Spirits. I wonder why great men - even Jesus (on earth) used the wine illustration. Remember "you don't put old wine in new skins..."? My dad was qualified for that statement. He was known as a heavy drinker and a…

Is it Right to “Debate” on Issues of the Bible?

This question has been on my mind right from my University days. From home to Church to school, I have always been met by advisers who said, "Hey, this is the Bible, don't debate on it, whenever I attempted probing them about my thoughts. Well, the book of Proverbs (Proverbs 24:6) said in the multitude of advisers there is safety, but I wasn't safe; for I was surrounded dangerously by questions that squeezed my thoughts. As I pondered on this,…

Affording Covenant University (C.U): A Symbol of ‘Bondage’ or ‘Freedom’?

The Ota-based archetype of private University education has been in the news recently for a variety of reasons - some totally explicable, others beating even the most intuitive of imagination. Well, the choice of the word "archetype" is intended to portray a telling insight of the overriding influence she has on other private institutions - a model of sorts. For the purpose of this piece in any case, attention should be drawn by you to adjudge for yourself as to…

#WivesNotCooks and The Burden of Proof

The greatest burden to bare - on this side of mundanity, is the burden of proof; Believe me. At the behest of a friend of mine, I found myself at the front of the pew of a local church. Over the years, I have come to prefer the relative sincerity and zeal of smaller church units to the pomp and poise of larger congregations. My mind was in limbo as the 'normal' routine of praise and worship was done. But…

Want to be Successful? 3 Strategies to Envy Management

Envy management? The first thing that would course through your mind is: "why should that matter?" Why, for instance is the justification behind someone else looking at you and wishing he/she has achieved up to what you have achieved. The 'quantum' of your achievements is not the point. How do you really channel ENVY, just like most greats - the Sir Walter Raleighs and the J. Turners. Of all the disorders of the soul, envy is the only one no one confesses…

Any Hope for Those Born Before Jesus? – Faith vs Righteousness

You may have realized that these words - faith and righteousness have been a re-occurring theme in many religious circles. And just like most doctrinal bases, they are often prone to been skewed, modified, abridged and diluted.  What exactly do those words mean? Christian fundamentalists, from the late 19th to early 20th centuries have always had a knack for appending a literal deduction to the Bible.  For those not in the mood for theological jargon, you can understand it this way…

The Pleasures of ‘Defeat’

There is always a radical approach used in finding out hidden answers. For instance, while reading randomly, I came across a scientist who wanted to know just how long one can keep on blinking after decapitation. His name? Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier (1794). Strange isn't it? The keyword here is "radical", and not whether he was right or wrong in that gory self-experiment. Truly, the societal situation is such that we have been programmed culturally and religiously to see some things as innately…

Respect, Not Admiration

But how do we attain the heights where great men reached? Or how do we distinguish between TRUE and FALSE greatness, to begin with? Understanding these two (2) questions should grant the reader some reprieve as regards the question – of SATISFACTION, of CONTENTMENT and of FULFILMENT. From the latter question, greatness that offshoots from selfish desires is False Greatness, no matter how apparently noble it appears. As a trivial instance, if the reason for returning some missing money is…
