I AM STILL WHAT I AM!

'Remove the home-maker from your profile, now that you are working' someone told me recently. It made me remember an anonymous comment in my old blog, where I was advised to remove 'house-wife' from my blog name, since I got a job then. I don't know if you guys remember? Guess not? Well, you know what they say about we Capricorns huh? We don't forget so easily, especially shades, sarcasm and insults! ahahaaa...whoever came up with that joke, is not serious jor! But we do forgive, always, before you say sorry...not forget. OK, DOKEY! That is enough of that! So, as I was saying,  I said thank-you, but refused to adhered to the suggestion, because, I am still a home-maker, regardless of my 5 nights of work. My home comes first  because, family is everything!


Well, that is not what I really want to talk about today. It just came into my mind as I opened my laptop by 5.50am this morning, to update. It is about the Church! Hmmm, I can hear the hesitation as they read, because I know anything that's got to do with Christianity, some quietly walk away, but if we all continue to play the ostrich and do-not-touch-my-annointed-attitude, I DON'T THINK, WE WILL ALL BE ENJOYING THE FREEDOM OF WORSHIP IN DIFFERENT DENOMINATIONS TODAY! History told us how King James rebelled against the Catholic church and we have the church of England,  and everybody  have access to the bible, hence, the King James version of the bible is still one of the best sellers today and seen as authentic than the other versions. Then, the protestants (Anglican), Methodists, Baptists, and Pentecostals came forth...and more still coming!

I am a Pentecostal while my mum is an Anglican. That is how we now identify ourselves in the body of Christ. No longer we are Christians when it comes down to the nitty-gritty, like marriage. Hence, church has now become a franchise, like an organization! Because, Nigerians are known to identify themselves with certain brands or cliches,  so people who wants to open a church, will affiliate themselves with a popular church, to use their name and be paying monthly, as it is done in any other business! 

YES! It was a complete SHOCK to me, when a pastor of a church having the same name with the most popular church in Nigeria, said he could no longer continue paying the heavy dues imposed on him by the 'mother-church', so he is changing the name of his church! And all along, I thought, it was a branch of the mother's-church! People in the know-how were surprised at my reaction, because they thought it was an open-secret! I DID NOT KNOW OOO!

Why is he not able to pay? (He has to remit in dollars, not Naira! I have said it here before that Christianity in obodo oyibo is different from that in 9ja!) Because people will first sort out all their bills before being a cheerful giver or sowing seeds in faith or giving their first fruits to the church! Tithe? To each his own. One thing for sure is that, you cannot deceive them that it is for prosperity, quoting the famous Malachi verse! They know the church needs money to pay bills, like the pastor in the former church I attended, he clearly said it takes money to keep the church warm during winter and cool during summer, and where will the money come from, if not from the tithes and offering? This is simple logic reasoning, and not the brimstone and hell-fire preached in Nigeria churches to force people to give and enrich the church...oh! Did I ever tell you guys that my elder brother is a pastor? Likewise my first cousin? ahahaa.

Have a blessed weekend. About taking the kids to school, let hubby sleep today.

You nailed it...family is everything. Some people though!

Never knew about the church affiliate thing sha but I know for one of the big pentecostal churches here in naija, every new (/ old) churches planted are required to remit a set amount to the headquarter. ..found it strange too but if they're okay with that, who am I?

Been a long while, sis. Trust you're good.

Your brother is a pastor? Wow. Well, we don't really hear about other members of the family you were born into.

As for the church thing, I want to believe Nigerians in diaspora would flock to churches which already had a popular name in Nigeria cos of familiarity. As long as the change of name is working out well for him, God and the church, all join.

Nay, I keep that part private.
You are right about familarity, I hope it does, because I have no intention of attending a Nigerian church. I no get power for all the drama! Ahaha. Thank you.

My name is Tammy Paul, I’m finally fulfilling my promise to Dr. Wakina after the unexpected miracle he performed last December by bringing back my Husband as a clean and perfect man I once to know. I called his work unexpected because I didn’t know or believe a Man could have such a talent to restore a damaged home.
After my Husband was restored, I waited to see if he will go back to his old ways, for more than 6 months, I have been observing him, but he never went back, he became so perfect like we never had issues in the past. I also observed if his work will bring bad luck to me or my family, instead, Dr. Wakina spell mad us stronger, wealthier and more united than ever.
I am giving back to the world the opportunity they gave me to meet my destiny changer. The reviews I read on blogs and drwakinalovetemple.webs.com changed my whole life. I have confirmed that Dr. Wakina is real and his love spell is so powerful, his spell last for eternity, he is a good man that knows his work. I promise you won’t regret when you email him via: dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com for help.

I used to have a brief dead-end affair with a guy in my office. He’s 49 years old, still married with 3 kids, but flirt a lot. When I try to resist, he flatter and made me feel good with an experience I never had before. We most time had sex in the office after drinking, but I think it’s better at home with my Husband, I wish I could stop, but I couldn’t. I starve my Husband and keep getting it hard from my colleague again and again.
I know my husband very well, he is faithful to me and the guilt eats me away constantly, I was scared to tell him the truth just to make me feel better, but I was scared he wouldn’t forgive me. I don’t want to live that way anymore. I email Dr. Wakina for help, to make me feel control of my body and emotions because I was afraid my Husband will know soon what I was up to.
Gladly I was totally restore after Dr. Wakina cast a cleansing spell on me and made me to cherish only my husband, he also gave me boldness to ask my Husband for forgiveness which was successful. I am better now than I was last 28 years all because of Dr. Wakina’s love spell in ordered via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com I will be forever grateful.

I guess it is no longer a news that Dr.Ogudugu is the best spell caster. Ana Rauzan is my name and i have read good reviews about Dr.Ogudugu before i contacted him through these details via greatogudugu@gmail.com which i took from the internet. I was so shocked when Dr.Ogudugu told me that once he cast the spell that i will be promoted in my Place of work within 48 hours and i was wondering how that could be possible but i must say i became the most happiest person on earth when i was really promoted in the office as the top Manager of the Company i work with, since then i have been a devoted follower of DR.OGUDUGU because he has never fail me, not even for once.
