Bible Studies this Thursday Night.
Garden of Eden is events and history.
Let’s focus on John Chapter 3: I know this is the basic chapter of the Bible many of us Christians quote ….
John 3: 15: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19: AND THIS IS THE CONDEMNATION, THAT LIGHT IS COME INTO THE WORLD, AND MEN LOVED DARKNESS RATHER THAN LIGHT, BECAUSE THEIR DEEDS WERE EVIL.
20: For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. Culled from King James version (Red Letter Edition) The Capitals and bold ink is from us.
Yemi has come again right? Yes to tell you what he needs to tell you, when he needs to tell you, and why he needs to tell you!
Now if I tell you not to talk about Jesus then suspect me, in fact I do talk about Him on this site but if I tell you to desist from saying those who don’t believe in Jesus will go to hell, please pause and ponder, after all the Holy books condemned judgment and more importantly this cognition and action triggers a lot of bad blood, to be mild.
Now who are those that fear the light – people who do evil, right? Yes!
Ritualists, rapists, armed-robbers, kidnappers … prefer the cover of the night to perpetrate evil and if they do in the daytime they quickly leave to avoid detection and possible arrest. And none of them will allow ‘24/7 CCTV’ to monitor them because they don’t want what they are doing to come to light and that’s secrecy a component of darkness. Spiritually wicked people operate in negative spiritual realm and that’s darkness.
Politicians who loot public funds will never allow CCTV to monitor them 24/7 right? Yes!
Now when members of other religions go to their worship centres do they hide? Nope. Do they worship in the open? Yes! Do we know when they celebrate their festive occasions? Yes!
Now God sent Jesus to save the world and not condemn the world and on this premise if He came to save the world why will he send a Yoruba man to hell for speaking Yoruba? Don’t forget our religions are similar to our mother-tongues because we never chose them we were born into same.
Peradventure you changed your religion God will not judge you based on that but He will judge your heart and intentions.
Tower of Babel has a link with the origin of countless languages we have in the world today, and note with the evolution of languages, the seeds of tribes and races and religions could possibly have been sown. I wasn’t alive then and I’m ignorant here but scholars, historians may have an idea of the missing link.
Adam and Eve I believe spoke the same language and practice the same religion and it was like that till …..
By extension Yorubas have a common origin but there are countless variants in our age and time … so what happened? Now if I made laws basically for Ife-Yorubas but over the years other Yorubas emerge that law has limitations because Ifes are not Ekitis and their lands are different; furthermore if I made laws for all Yorubas and some Yorubas travelled abroad … the fact that they had changed locations the laws have minimal effect on them. Yes or no?
The laws in the home of the Rooneys – “’No child should be outside by 8:00pm and the eldest child in this home is 12!” Now why should I apply this law to the home of the Clooneys whose youngest child is 18?
In rounding off we need to know how and when one religion became two, three … finally, whatever your religion don’t take the place of God in judgment and don’t turn God to human.
