In the early 1980s, a Nigerian gospel group, Bro. Henry Jackson and the Disciples had a album titled, ‘Sing Hallelujah’ and that album was a favorite in our home.
In one of the songs that dwelt on our preparedness for eternity, the song outlined vices to be weary about. These included Cheating, Murder, Lying, Bribery and Corruption that have failed and polluted our lives today, and Idol worship in the modern ways.
Over the years as I grew up, I’d once a while be wondering exactly what ‘IDOL WORSHIP IN THE MODERN WAYS TODAY’ meant. However today, it’s so clear what that statement means. Sad, how some people are allowing the Old Time Religion to appear.
My dear friend,
“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live.” – George Bernard Shaw
Over the last couple of years, I’ve dedicated a bit of my time to join the struggle of helping to raise the younger generation. This has been to ensure that they are well positioned to take over the reins of this country and improve on its lot.
Being a committed Christian, I have for the better part of my adult life been inspired by the philosophy, ‘Omnibus Omnia Factus Sum’, a Latin phrase adopted from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians 9:22 where he wrote that he became all things to all men that he might save some by all means.
I have therefore, utilized all manner of approaches to help influence positive change in the attitude and orientation of our people for the overall purpose of nation building. To this, I welcome you to my blog.
