This article made me thank God for my parents even more for giving them a real brain and discerning spirits to know truth from evil... "Mary is a pretty five-year-old girl with big brown eyes and a father who kicked her out onto the streets in one of the most dangerous parts of the world. Her crime: the local priest had denounced her as a witch and blamed her "evil powers" for causing her mother's death. Ostracised, vulnerable and frightened, she wandered the streets in south-eastern Nigeria, sleeping rough, struggling to stay alive. Mary was found by a British charity worker and today lives at a refuge in Akwa Ibom province with 150 other children who have been branded witches, blamed for all their family's woes, and abandoned. Before being pushed out of their homes many were beaten or slashed with knives, thrown onto fires, or had acid poured over them as a punishment or in an attempt to make them "confess" to being possessed. In one horrific case, a young girl called Uma had a three-inch nail driven into her skull.
Yet Mary and the others at the shelter are the lucky ones for they, at least, are alive. Many of those branded "child-witches" are murdered - hacked to death with machetes, poisoned, drowned, or buried alive in an attempt to drive Satan out of their soul. The devil's children are "identified" by powerful religious leaders at extremist churches where Christianity and traditional beliefs have combined to produce a deep-rooted belief in, and fear of, witchcraft. The priests spread the message that child-witches bring destruction, disease and death to their families. And they say that, once possessed, children can cast spells and contaminate others.
The religious leaders offer help to the families whose children are named as witches, but at a price. The churches run exorcism, or "deliverance", evenings where the pastors attempt to drive out the evil spirits. Only they have the power to cleanse the child of evil spirits, they say. The exorcism costs the families up to a year's income." as reported by

...just sad...I gotta make some phone calls beacuse the many real christians in Nigeria need to pray to be the vessels of God to end this.


Living the christian life as a young man or woman can be very challenging especially in this time we find ouselves. But i am encouraging yall to stay on track with the gospel that we know. let your light shine or should I say let your life shine so that peopleill know that there is a God in heaven. We are truly called to be Ambassadors for Christ and that is a call for all of us to answer...we may not all be able to travel to Europe, Asia, or Africa....but what we do in our own countries can go a far way. Im pretty sure that all of you can admit that the places you come from have their own problems we should be active in prayer for them and help those who need to Know about Christ(everybody). So there is no excuses honestly I myself am a victim to this but we must step up. There are many people that God has placed in our lives that we are meant to extend that love to yet we fall short. So this post is just a reminder of our duties as steward's of the LORD JESUS CHRIST...


Monks Fighting...Is this christ- Like? hoping your answer is no....The church in Jerusalem's Old City, one of the most revered sites in Christianity, is home to six different Christian sects who frequently fight over the rights to maintain and worship in different sections of its hallowed halls.

This time, the fight followed an Armenian procession marking the fourth-century discovery of a cross believed to have been used in Jesus's crucifixion.

Greek Orthodox monks had apparently wanted to post a monk inside the Edicule, a structure built on what is believed to be Jesus's tomb, and blocked the procession when the Armenian clergymen refused.

Riot police broke up the fight and arrested a bearded Armenian monk and a Greek Orthodox monk bleeding from a gash on his forehead.

...this story is kind of reminiscent of a something I said a couple blogs down "religion is whack, Christ is Truth" whenever it becomes more about religion and the politics of religion than the love of Jesus Christ there is a problem... I may not understand the implications on every part of this subject but it seems as if they are fighting over a wooden cross that was believe to be the same cross that Jesus was crucified on. I'm pretty sure that the wood has long since degraded an turned to dirt in the past 2000 years, so instead of fighting for wood, lets fight for the truth we have come to know in Christ and what that wooden cross truly stands for...

Are we in agreement?

Historical Election, What do you think about it?

Barack Obama was elected president of the United States on Tuesday, the culmination of a historic, barrier-breaking campaign whose promise of change generated a groundswell at the polls. In the process, Obama may have changed American politics for good — and, we hope, for the better. So what are your thoughts on this election please click title in order to comment and let your voice be heard by the rest of the world....
