Exegesis and It’s Antagonists

It is quite funny, or rather sad, that the people, my pastors and friends alike, who emphasized “exegesis” as a way to understanding God’s mind while they disputed my ‘mummy’s generation’s’ understanding of the scriptures along the lines of ‘covering the hair’, ‘wearing trousers’, ‘women holding leadership positions in the church’, ‘shouting Jesus seven times […]

On Church and Pastoring

If I and God ever come around the idea of me pastoring a church, that’s if there’s ever that space left, I know exactly the kind of church it is going to be. And it’s very exciting. And that’s the problem. I largely think churches in Nigeria are owned by the man of God. It’s […]


BASTARDIZATION I once saw a church write, “at (the church name), your success is guaranteed”, and I sincerely appreciate the effort of their publicity coordinators. But it seems to me that there is a hidden ‘only’ in that statement that is read unconsciously and it makes the statement read something like this: ‘It is only […]

The Tale of the Anointing Oil

So I got to church on Sunday morning and we were asked to join in the prayer session. I wasn’t informed about it before, but since it was ‘Yahweh’, the God I had been talking to and not ‘Sango’ or any other idiot, I didn’t need preparation. I’ll spare you details of my dissatisfaction for […]

Same Nonsense

Sadly, some of our preachers are guilty of the same things they accuse other preachers of; they’ve only found more Greek and Hebrew words, bible verses in several translations, and more time (as against the exhortations they call the sermons of the other preachers) to dress and package theirs-same thing, same direction, same commodity, same […]

It happens.

#randomtots It happened in church on sunday, just as the praise and worship ended; as my eyes met hers, her smile broadened, revealing her gorgeous teeth; time stopped and so did my heart. Sitting at the choir’s stand, I could see the entire church, including this lady seated behind the ‘first timers’ section. Fair complexion. […]

As a Worship Leader

As a worship leader in my church-(the big, strong, and reliable Rhema Mass Choir), I get mad sometimes, when I see some ‘big boys and girls’ in church on Sunday morning who do not partake in the worship, nor close their eyes, who do not clap nor respond to the call and response songs. I […]

Love Parallel

(Photo credits:davidwarkentin.blogspot.com) I wonder what is this ‘thing’ called Love. What is it that makes a woman want to cleave to only one man for the rest of her life? What gives her the assurance the man will make her happy all the days of her life? Has she tried them all? Sometimes you look […]

2014; My Year of…? by Imisioluwa

Come 12am tonight, 1st of January, many Senior pastors and churches will roll out the much awaited ‘Word for the year 2014’. The word, often written as “2014, My Year of…..”, usually signify the direction God will have each church go, or perhaps, a prophetic declaration into God’s desire and will for the year. Examples […]

The City of Ilorin and Fire.

Is it a coincidence that almost every poster in Ilorin this season has something to do with ‘Fire?’ Those who are not ‘reviving’ it are making a ‘crusade’ out of it while the others are having a ‘festival’ for it. What else can we ask for in a city like this, than that the fire […]
