I was watching a movie with my brother sometime ago when the Word ‘Fornication’ was mentioned in the movie and we burst out laughing. Anytime we remember the scene where the word was mentioned, we would laugh again.
I later asked him why it was funny since it sounded like a ‘serious matter’ and we came to the conclusion that “Sex sounded tusher when used instead of ‘Fornication.’
The World calls it Sex because it sounds tush and acceptable ‘sort-of’ but fornication sounds too….”harsh and old-fashioned.’’ Calling it for what it is makes one look like a sinner
But isn’t that what the Bible calls fornication?...Why not call it for what it is
Another incident happened when I was having a conversation with my cousin since He’s the Clubbing/Partying type and so he displayed a picture I wasn’t too comfortable with where he posed beside a girl who was barely wearing anything…(just a bra and panties did the job). I told him I didn’t like the picture and he looked unperturbed.
I further probed him with this question. ‘’What if ‘I’ was ‘that’ girl standing next to you pulling that same stunt, how will you feel if you saw a pix of me like that?’’
Omo!!...you need to have seen his reaction, including vague threats
“You cant try it!.., I’ll Kill you!!!’’
He actually said He was going to Kill me, and yet isn’t ‘that’ girl another person’s sister or sibling?
And then, I wondered, isn’t it still the same thing?
Why was he now seeing it differently just because I put myself in the girl’s shoes, and I was his ”family”
Isn’t she also a woman who deserves to cover up herself and think deep or rather know better?
Because I believe if she Knew better and stopped listening to the world, the devil and her flesh and search for the Truth, she wouldn’t be posing beside my cousin, barely wearing anything.
Let’s call it for what it is please……
There was another conversation I had with someone about a man having concubines even after marriage and I’m sure most men have this mentality too.
He said he felt it was okay and I queried him that it wasn’t okay. Ahnn ahnn
What is wrong is wrong
I further went on to ask if it was a woman involved, isn’t it the same thing?
And he was like..”naah, it’s not the same thing.’’
Well, excuse you, it is!!...but people will look at her that she’s an ‘ashewo’(prostitute).
He tried to justify the reason that society would see her as a loose woman et al, but for men, it’s still understandable and I’m like…”chai!!!...How will we develop when men and society keep thinking like this?’’
What about the man?...isn’t he an ashewo too?
I told him point blank that “God sees both as Adultery, be it man or woman’’
What is wrong is wrong!.Sin is Sin, be it man or woman. The Bible did not say Man’s sin is overlooked but woman..”haaa!!..you don enter am.’’ Anything born of woman, be it man or woman is regarded as same…
Or was it not Adam and Eve that got banished from Eden?
‘’Equality rights activist’’, you may call me, but same noni as far as I’m concerned
Back in School, we had a discussion about the prevalence of HIV in Nigeria and Africa and we began to have arguments that Africans are still more conservative about Sex when compared to other countries but When the Lecturer went on to state facts, we had to agree with her with a sad nod.
Reason;-In a country like Nigeria, when a man marries and stays at home with his wife for too long, he is considered A woman wrapper or someone who doesn’t know how to enjoy Life and so he is convinced by His friends that Life is quite richer and pleasurable outside marriage and so having concubines is not seen as a big deal at all
I mean, why settle for ordinary salad, when you can have Fruit Salad?!!SMH!!!!!!
If you’ve ever noticed, when there’s strife in a family and the families come together to settle, the woman is told to overlook and might even have to go on her knees for the man afterward
After all, He’s the “MAN’’ of the House
N.B; I’ve witnesses such incidents and it sickens me to the stomach
If it was a woman involved, they’ll call her a Harlot and all sorts of names till kingdom comes
Do you remember the story of the adulteress in the Bible whom those Men “dragged” to Jesus in the bible because they were ready to stone her to death before Jesus gave them a big “ela!’’ and they started dropping their big stones
I remember, he said. ”let him who has not sinned cast the first stone’’
Did you ever wonder in the whole scenario WHERE ON EARTH WAS THE MAN?
Adultery involves two people and so where was the man that committed the Act with her
It shows How impartial and upside-down the society sees things
A white Lie is a Lie, you may call it something else, but it’s definitely NOT the truth!
It’s just a little Sex before marriage, no penetration……Well, bad news, It’s STILL SEX
It’s just preambles…foreplay before sex…NO intercourse..walahi…etc…swear all you want… ehnnn…IT is SEX
It’s just a little cash or material which is not yours…, C’mon!!!..need I spell it OUT for you
It’s just a Little Lie to cover up my ass…, nothing more…well tell that to Pinocchio.
It’s just a little gossip, it’s not like I’m giving the full detail of everything…and so on
Have you tried telling a Lie to cover up something and then the Lies keep getting bigger and bigger till it’s so obvious you’re Pinocchio Part 2 and people can’t even tell when you’re telling the truth and when you’re lying?
Lets be honest with ourselves, A lie will keep leading to other lies and so why build a Legos of Lies when it can be smashed by a handful of truth
There’s no two-ways about it, the truth will surely prevail someday somehow
Have you tried tasting a chocolate piece especially when you're on a diet or rather, you're watching your calorie intake? tasting it doesn't stop there, you end up eating all of it
And so, like my chocolate, don’t bother tasting or biting into it at all cos once you’re in, it takes the grace of God to crawl out.
Don’t let that word ”little” be your integrity gauge and deceive you.
Don’t let The “Comparison” Gauge be that either
n.b; its the little things that have the tendency to kill you slowly cos it makes you get familiar with sin, and then you keep doing it till your conscience becomes seared and you don't even feel remorseful for any wrong you do.
But Let Jesus be your integrity Gauge…cos there is no ‘little sin’’ in His eyes.
"You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly esteemed before men is an abomination in the sight of God...Luke 16v15
And I bet you once you’re in Jesus(Truth) and You in Him, Like the Tree supplies water to the branches so that they bloom, you’ll never wither or fade away, but will stand…
Like a tree planted by the rivers of water…that brings forth fruits in it’s season, Whose leaf shall not wither, and whatever He does shall prosper. Psalm 1v3
