Nigeria in conflict Again?

Like much of Africa!

We only hear what the media sometimes wants to tell us about what s going on in the world? The situation in Nigeria is complex as it is many other places, but one has to wonder if Iran might be trying to stir up some sectarian conflict as it probably has in Yemen?

Many nations on the continent of Africa have never really got over their break from the various colonial powers that illegally ruled them in the 19th Century? Counter revolution has been the only way for many to get was needed done instead of seeking a democratic way!

God owns our world, even thou Satan has been cast down to wonder in the remote parts of it and cause trouble working through human weakness of our inherited sinful condition! It is we who must seek the Lord for our Salvation knowing that His one and only son Jesus has made the final atonement for our sins!

Genesis 10:5,   Psalm 9:5,  17,  47:3,   59:8,   John 3:3,  14-18,   Acts 4:12,   Romans 3:22-23,   Philippians 1:30,   1 Thessalonians 2:2,   Hebrews 4:12,   20:32.

Sectarianism and Orders.

How easy it has been for various orders based on segregation to take control to keep peoples divided over religion as an excuse. We see this also in many other religions, but why is it so prominant in Christianity.

Many issues covering religious practise from the Communion to confession to the status of the Virgin Mary continue to excuse Protestants to be discrimintary to Catholics! But many Orangemen as Freemasons and that order allows the worship of idols and immoral practise.

Tradition and Hypocrasy.

In a few days from now thousands of Irish and Ulster Protestants will take to the streets to mark the annual mini 12th July parades. The two months of fear will set in for the isolated Catholics in Northern-Ireland.

What is the Orange order all about? It claims to be a ”Christian Organisation and yet it rejects witness to Irish Catholics, thus proving that it is both racist and sectarian in its nature.

Ulter Protestants have over the years formulated their own version of the Gospel message that is far from that of the bible and many ‘Christians are not what they seem to be at first glance. They have become historical upholders of their tradition, rather than a people of faith in Jesus.

Bru na Boinne, New Grange. Part-Two.

Many people throughout the island of Ireland in recent years have been drawn to various forms of Druidism, Wicca, New Age and Satanism/Witchcraft, because these older thoughts of religious experience are non Sectarian. After 40 years of conflict in N-Ireland, which did spill over the border (Monaghan and Dublin bomb attacks), people have sought refuge in paganism. but many have found that to be as divided as ‘Christianity’.

What real Christian belief is about, is a new life experience in Jesus the Son of God. It is about a change of heart, walking and living in a new way to obey and please God. It is a two way relationship. It is not based on traditions and ceremonies, but on faith and action daily. It is about seeing that we are all failures and that we need God to help us get through life, always trying our best to do what is good, true and right.

Ephesians 4:22-25, Romans 15:3-4, Titus 3:3-7,  Galatians 5:19-24.
