HOW RELIGIOUS DIFFERENCES ALTER NATIONAL UNITY

Moslems, Christians and other indigenous religion worshippers can live in peace and harmony in Nigeria if policy makers make stricter laws to stop those who want to use religion as instruments of exploitation and trouble making. Nigeria is a nation state where all tribal and religious interests are treated with parallel importance. Many religions preach peace yet, the paradoxes of peaceful religions are now the pathways to complex blind spots for trouble making. The fundamental principle of Christian and Islamic religions are peace and attainment of heaven. Those who are inquisitive would not hesitate to ask if these religions are adding peaceful values to national unity or draining national resources with the controversies they generate. If the idea of Peace is prioritized by those responsible for molding the minds and behaviors of their congregation, religion would be seen as a spiritual entity free from politics and materialism. The level of religious politicking amongst religious leaders in recent times are now causes for concern among those who have not make up their mind on the faith they want to belong. Religion would remain a constant source of human miseries and drain of national resources when violence messages are mixed with peaceful doctrines.


Nigerian policy makers have consciously avoided some hot topics and conferences to quell tension and unrest they thought would emanate from such events. The elements of tension and unrest from the areas policy makers have deliberately avoided over the last 50 years are indications that these delicate topics are the key to peace Nigeria sought. A former Nigerian Prime Minister, Sir, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa once said that Nigeria can work better if Nigerians are willing to learn and respect their differences. 

The differences in languages, cultures, religions, traditional institutions and so on are not the barriers to national unity but, some treacherous mindless few with reckless disregard for national unity who are responsible for brewing tension and unrest; armed with religion and greed. Christians and Moslems could have avoided incessant troubles if the bright idea of Balewa has not been neglected. Balewa's ideas would have formed the basis of national integration and national consciousness, shaped by the supremacy of a Nation state that would protect the interests of all ethnic nationalities and their religious beliefs as long as they are not inimical to national interest
 
Nigeria is a heterogeneous society with more than 300 African Traditional Religion (ATR) worship by nearly 500 tribes. Christianity and Islam are introduced religions to Nigeria at different time and space. Christianity was first introduced to kingdoms, Empires and Clans along the coastal regions of Atlantic Ocean and hinterland by Portuguese and British explorers about 1400's and 1600s. Meanwhile, kingdoms and Empires in the North also practiced indigenous African religion (ATR) like their Southern counterparts before Usman Dan Fodio introduced Islam to the North about 1804. Before these introduced religions, there were no historical records of escalating disputes or unrests resulting from indigenous religions. Christianity and Islam are the only two religions which came with education and codified holy books to guide the attitude and behavior of their followers. These holy books have stories of great men and women, stories of wars and peace; humans have had more warring histories than peaceful ones. The usefulness of these holy books (Bible and Koran) is to harness peaceful stories and experiences towards promoting global peace not the other way round.
British colonial government amalgamated the Northern and Southern protectorate of Niger area in 1914 to a status of a nation state called Nigeria. Nigeria was coined from Niger area by Flora Shaw, the partner of the first Governor General of Nigeria, Lord Frederick Lugard. The colonial authorities saw power, greatness and potentials in the unity of diverse ethnic nationalities; it is not surprising that Nigeria has turned out to be the giant of Africa. The colonial authorities gave existing kingdoms, empires and clans limited powers because of their direct social link to the grass root. Many decades later, modern Policy makers are looking for decisive alternatives to forge sustainable peaceful mechanisms for Nigeria. Peace is possible if religious and traditional leaders tame their followers to embrace peace, unity and social protection a Nation state has to offer.
Nigerian social architects and social engineers should return to the drawing board to design a Nigeria project that would accommodate interests of all stakeholders in order to move Nigeria forward and, all aggrieved burning issues resolved by expertises in conflict and crisis management. Policy makers should focus on what Christianity, Islam and ATR can offer to the stability of Nigeria. They should discourage all negative teachings that could destruct the peaceful coexistence of Nigerians. Religion and politics should be complementing one another in the promotion of national peace, ironically, religious ideologies has been hijacked by a few individuals who use it as instruments of violence and intimidation in a country which is constituted as a secular nation state.
Religion can offer peaceful solutions to Nigeria's social problems when corruption is minimized by 85%. Most religious worshippers are now the modern gladiators of our time, a further probe by agnostics who questioned if God is a God of war or peace. Most believers fight, loot and kill in the name of God yet, the God of the Moslems is not different from the God of the Christians. The problems between religious faiths are not God made, they are consciously designed by men with superior thinking ability than most of their contemporaries who just obey the orders of a superior mortal being. This brought to mind the issue of Islamic banking which has generated a lot of controversies among Nigerian Christians and Moslems. If Nigerians Moslems and Christians are committed to peace and unity of Nigeria, they would have rooted their understanding on the concept of a Nation state which represents interests of all religions and tribes since they are not inimical to national interest, they would have realized that Islamic Banking is not harmful to non Moslems(it is a Moslem community Bank). Islamic Banking DEALS on ethical banking and investment. How many Christians would be proud to invest their money in brothels or criminality? This is exactly what Islamic banking represents (ETHICS). This cat and mouse relationship between Christians and Moslems in Nigeria has stained the reputation of Nigeria than what most of their followers could imagine. Churches, Mosques and shrines are not in the position of authority to dictate how Nigerian can be governed. They can render spiritual and counseling services towards the peaceful development of Nigeria. It is up to Nigerian policy makers to decide the best way forward to a sustainable peaceful development in Nigeria for the next 300 years.
Policy makers should strive harder to separate their religious beliefs from their paid duties from the Nigerian Nation Sate, that would enable them to treat other religious believers as Nigerians rather than allow religion to cloud their emotions when discharging their official duties.

Have a Thankful Heart

Still think waking up everyday is a norm in your life?
Well have a rethink. Today, second day of september 2015, someone woke up, went to work, had a busy day...on his/her way back home to meet his/her family, a trailer from the express-bridge fell down to the main road in Ojuelegba and squashed the car (an unexpected/unforseen encounter).

As I post this write-up, the scene as displayed on image in this post is still live.

SO PLEASE BE CAREFUL and always thank GOD every micro milli second of your life.
God help us all....Amen

Little Secrets Behind APPRECIATION

 "As we express our gratitude, we must never forget  that the highest appreciation is not to utter words but to live by them."
                 - John Kennedy
"Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary."
                           - Margaret Cousins

LYING IS AN UGLY EVIL

What makes anyone tell lies? White lies, black lies, small or tiny lies, big or plenty lies, or any other sort of lie? People tell lies as a result of the state of their hearts. A man whose heart is filled with lies, will consistently tell lies.
There are people whose lies has taken over them. Everything they say is nothing but lies, even their greetings. When they do, all you need do is check the time if truly they are right.
Lying is not only speaking an untruth, it is also not keeping our word to others. Lying is also a form of deceit. Wealth built through lying, deception or fraudulent means is like vapour, and that sort of treasure has a short span, and would disappear quickly.
People lie to get attention, people also lie to attach unnecessary importance to themselves.
Exaggerating when telling a story to seem more interesting is a lie.
Altering a date in an age declaration affidavit, and having an official age, or changing your age to get a job that has age limit. They are all lies.
A lie is a lie!
I feel people lie for two major reasons:
1. Fear of the negative consequences that can arise as a result of saying the truth;
2. Pride, and trying to maintain the impression that others have of you
Being Honest may not get you a lot of friends, but it will always get you the right ones
According to Pastor E. A Adeboye, what is responsible for the destruction of God's people is not the devil; rather, it is their ignorance. This means that the devil capitalizes on what you do not know to plunder you, if you fail to recognize and act on your kingdom rights for instance, the devil will definitely take advantage of you. If you believe that lie is part of godliness, Satan will celebrate your ignorance. To this end, the devil will do everything possible to keep such a fellow in the dark concerning the truth.
Followers of Christ, LIE NOT!

THE SCIENCE BEHIND STEPPING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

We've all seen inspirational quotes that encourage us to get out and do something strange—something we wouldn't normally do—but getting out of our routine just takes so much work.
There's actually a lot of science that explains why it's so hard to break out of your comfort zone, and why it's good for you when you do it. With a little understanding and a few adjustments, you can break away from your routine and do great things.
It's important to push the boundaries of your comfort zone, and when you do, it's kind of a big deal. But what is the "comfort zone" exactly? Why is it that we tend to get comfortable with the familiar and our routines, but when we're introduced to new and interesting things, the glimmer fades so quickly? Finally, what benefit do we derive from breaking out of our comfort zone, and how do we do it? Answering those questions is a tall order, but it's not too hard to do. Let's get started.

Simply, your comfort zone is a behvioral space where your activities and behaviors fit a routine and pattern that minimizes stress and risk. It provides a state of mental security. You benefit in obvious ways: regular happiness, low anxiety, and reduced stress.
The idea of the comfort zone goes back to a classic experiment in psychology. Back in 1908, psychologists Robert M. Yerkes and John D. Dodson explained that a state of relative comfort created a steady level of performance In order to maximize performance, however, we need a state of relative anxiety—a space where our stress levels are slightly higher than normal. This space is called "Optimal Anxiety," and it's just outside our comfort zone. Too much anxiety and we're too stressed to be productive, and our performance drops off sharply.
The idea of optimal anxiety isn't anything new. Anyone who's ever pushed themselves to get to the next level or accomplish something knows that when you really challenge yourself, you can turn up amazing results. More than a few studies support the point. However, pushing too hard can actually cause a negative result, and reinforce the idea that challenging yourself is a bad idea. It's our natural tendency to return to an anxiety neutral, comfortable state. You can understand why it's so hard to kick your brain out of your comfort zone.
Even so, your comfort zone is neither a good or bad thing. It's a natural state that most people trend towards. Leaving it means increased risk and anxiety, which can have positive and negative results (which we'll get to in a moment), but don't demonize your comfort zone as something holding you back. We all need that head-space where we're least anxious and stressed so we can process the benefits we get when we leave it.
What You Get When You Break Free and Try New Things
Optimal anxiety is that place where your mental productivity and performance reach their peak. Still, "increased performance" and "enhanced productivity" just sound like "do more stuff." What do you really get when you're willing to step outside of your comfort zone?
.         You'll be more productive. Comfort kills productivity because without the sense of unease that comes from having deadlines and expectations, we tend to phone it in and do the minimum required to get by. We lose the drive and ambition to do more and learn new things. We also fall into the "work trap," where we feign "busy" as a way to stay in our comfort zones and avoid doing new things. Pushing your personal boundaries can help you hit your stride sooner, get more done, and find smarter ways to work.
·         You'll have an easier time dealing with new and unexpected changes. In this article at The New York Times, BrenĂ© Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston, explains that one of the worst things we can do is pretend fear and uncertainty don't exist. By taking risks in a controlled fashion and challenging yourself to things you normally wouldn't do, you can experience some of that uncertainty in a controlled, manageable environment. Learning to live outside your comfort zone when you choose to can prep you for life changes that force you out of it.
·         You'll find it easier to push your boundaries in the future. Once you start stepping out of your comfort zone, it gets easier over time. This same NYT article explains that as you step out of your comfort zone, you'll become accustomed to that state of optimal anxiety. "Productive discomfort," as they call it, becomes more normal to you, and you're willing to push farther before your performance falls off. This idea is well illustrated in this infographic at Future Science Leaders. At the bottom, you'll see that as you challenge yourself, your comfort zone adjusts so what was difficult and anxiety-inducing becomes easier as you repeat it.
·         You'll find it easier to brainstorm and harness your creativity. This is a soft benefit, but it's fairly common knowledge (and it's easily reproducible) that seeking new experiences, learning new skills, and opening the door to new ideas inspire us and educate us in a way that little else does. Trying new things can make us reflect on our old ideas and where they clash with our new knowledge, and inspire us to learn more and challenge comfirmation bias, our tendency to only seek out information we already agree with. Even in the short term, a positively uncomfortable experience can help us brainstorm, see old problems in a new light, and tackle the challenges we face with new energy.
The benefits you get after stepping outside of your comfort zone can linger. There's the overall self-improvement you get through the skills you're learning, the new foods you're trying, the new country you're visiting, and the new job you're interviewing for. There's also the soft mental benefits you get from broadening your horizons.

Democracy Day Event: STEPPING OUT

How willing are you to go beyond limits to achieve what you want? Have you stepped out of your comfort zone to make things work for you? Or are you just playing it safe and eating up whatever life offers you? For Nigeria to step into progress we have to step out of our comfort zones to pursue our dreams, to make ourselves better people. We succeeding in whatever we do automatically makes Nigeria a successful nation. Let's stop blaming the economy and start taking responsibility of whatever happens to us. I've stepped out of my comfort zone. Have you?

Seeking Significance From Within

One of the most successful marketing campaigns going on in Nigeria today is the one being carried out by Coca-Cola tagged "Share a coke". I have no idea what their sales look like at the moment, but with the rate at which people have been looking for their names on coke bottles, its obvious sales would have increased by a very significant percentage.

Why would people buy many bottles of coke simply because it has their names on it? With this great marketing strategy, Coca-Cola is presently meeting a fundamental need of human beings which is the need to feel significant. The subliminal association of peoples name to a global brand gives people some form of intrinsic satisfaction, that they are significant.

But as great and laudable as this campaign is, the surest way to self-significance is through self-discovery and self-actualization. If you look inwards, you will discover that God has deposited great things in you with which you are to make use of to make the world a better place. This virtue or endowment varies differently with individuals and it basically sets you apart, it makes you unique from other humans and it ultimately defines your purpose on earth. Do you know that the virtues and unique abilities placed in you are meant to meet the needs of so many people? This thought should boost your self-esteem and level of significance.

You are very significant, God made you for a reason - Find it and fulfill it. It is very imperative that we discover these gifts and share them with the world. A well known writer and radio presenter once said, "The fastest way to kill ones purpose or dream is to keep it to one's self" rather than share it with the world. Until you discover the essence of your existence and cause your presence to make a difference, your absence will not be felt.

Here are three steps which can guide you  towards self-significance:

1. Look inside yourself to see what gives you the most satisfaction.
2. Become familiar with people and places where you feel respected and valued.
3. Learn to encourage yourself. Make it a natural habit. When you don't value yourself as a person, you will not be able to recognise your strengths. When you encourage yourself, you'll become more satisfied with your life. As you begin to recognize and value your own strengths and resources, you'll start to give yourself more positive messages.

As you become more satisfied with yourself, you won't feel the need to compare yourself with others. Instead, you will note your own progress and set your own standards.

There will be times along the line where you will be faced with extreme obstacles and setbacks. They will make you give excuses to procrastinate, they will make you feel hopeless, powerless, frustrated and worst of all make you deviate from your purpose in life, but giving up is not an option. If we always look at our negative sides, we would easily forget our positive sides. God created us all for a reason, no man is without direction; you just have to find yours. Never lose focus on God's plan for your life.

I'll round up with these wise words by one of the greatest civil rights activist and preacher the world ever produced in person of Martin Luther King Jr.; If a man has not discovered something that he will die for, he isn't fit to live. Today I make a call to you that you refuse to rest in life till the world enjoys your best.

CYC: WHERE ARE WE NOW?

Dear Crusaders,
May God’s grace be with you forever. I am really excited for us this season of our lives. Though some things keep bothering me but I thank God that He has sworn to help us even when we feel we have failed.
It is amazing that a lot of things have happened, and I’m talking about CYC. GOD really loves us so much. I can bet my life on that. There is faith, and there is hope and there is love.

Fighting Negative Addictions

In addition to what we learned at our youth forum on Tuesday (24th march 2015), I have something important to share. From time to time, everyone struggles to overcome bad habits and addictions. So I want to review some principles which i stumbled upon and i believe will really help us fight negative addictions. I hope we remember these things.

It's Your Choice
God has given us a free will. We choose whether to subject ourselves to bad habits and addictions (Rom. 6:16-18).
Therefore, we have the power to control ourselves and avoid sinful behaviors, and thus break bad habits and addictions.
Difference Between Habit And Addiction
Simply stated, an "addiction is a loss of control and freedom, while a habit is something that is donned or assumed, perhaps often, but that can nevertheless be removed if desired" (Britannica.com).
Anything that has control over us is an addiction. For example: If you must have coffee to function, it is an addiction; but if you freely choose to drink coffee every day, it is a habit.

All Addiction is Sinful
Sinful behaviors are sinful, whether or not they're an addiction. For example: Illegal drug use and pornography are sinful, whether they're addictions or not.
Lawful behaviors, on the other hand, can become sinful in certain circumstances. One of those circumstances is addiction. If a lawful behavior becomes an addiction, then it is a sin.
Paul says, "All things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be mastered by anything" (1 Cor. 6:12).
Stay Away From Sinful Behaviors
If we have a godly attitude, we will stay away from sin. Thus, we'll never involve ourselves in sinful behaviors that are highly addictive.
Paul sets forth this idea in these Scriptures:
1 Th. 5:21-22 "But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil."
Rom. 12:9 "Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil; cling to what is good."
1 Cor. 15:33 "Do not be deceived: Bad company corrupts good morals."
If we abstain from everything remotely connected with sin, abhorring even the thought of it, we'll never become addicted to sinful behaviors.
For example: If you never take a drink of alcohol, you'll never become an alcoholic. If you never look at pornography, you'll never become addicted to pornography.
Exercise Self-Control
To avoid and overcome bad habits and addictions, we must exercise self-control.
Jesus teaches us to deny ourselves, and take up our cross and follow Him (Matt. 16:24). To do this, we must control our mind, by which we control our bodies. He says, "For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornication, thefts, false witness, slanders" (Matt. 15:19).
Paul expresses these thoughts with an athletic metaphor, saying, "Everyone who competes in the games exercises self-control in all things. They then do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable" (1 Cor. 9:24-25).
Like an athlete, we must exercise self-control in all things. If we do, we'll control our minds, which controls our bodies, and overcome bad habits and addictions.

Walk By The Spirit
If we walk by the Spirit, we'll avoid and overcome bad habits and addictions. The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Gal. 5:22). Since we walk by the Spirit, we exercise control over sin, bad habits, and addictions.
We walk by the Spirit because we belong to Christ, having crucified the flesh with its passions and desires (Gal. 5:24). We don't engage in bad habits and addictions because Christ doesn't engage in sin.
We've been crucified with Christ, who lives in us; and the life which we now live in the flesh we live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself up for us (Gal. 2:20).
The Power of God in Our Lives
Walking by the Spirit, God's empowers us to avoid and overcome bad habits and addictions.
We're empowered by God's word and prayer.
Rom. 1:16 "For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes. . . ."
1 Th. 2:13 ". . . the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe."
1 Pet. 3:12 "For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous, and His ears attend to their prayer, but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

Encouragement
Hosea 14:4 says " I will heal their backsliding, I will love them freely: for mine anger is turned away from him." God acknowledges that we are humans and we tend to fall hence, Romans 5:8 says ...while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. We have to focus on the cross for our salvation comes from there. We must desire to submit to the will of Jesus Christ, by doing so we will tap into the healing already provided for us more than 2000 years ago.

Summary
As Christians, we have the ability to control our bodies with our minds, empowered by God's word and blessed with answered prayers.
Avoiding and overcoming bad habits and addictions isn't a question of ability, it's a question of desire

A Letter From The President Of The Christian Youth Crusaders.

Greetings fellow Crusaders!
Thank you for showing up at our last meeting that held on the 8th of March, 2015. That was the first official meeting for the year and it was a blessing. GOD bless you.

There was something I kept repeating at the meeting and I’m saying it here. I NEED ALL OF YOU whose heart has the interest of CYC. God is doing amazing things this year for the youths and we want to be part of the plan. I am excited and can’t wait for us to manifest in the capacity God has given us. My heart is glad and knowing we are together will take us places unimaginable. TEAM – Together Everybody Achieves More is the rule for us this year. God will surely get the glory in everything we do as a TEAM. Glory!!!

I quite understand that after spending much time after service most of us couldn’t stay till the end. And it is understandable. We try to squeeze so much information to us in a very short time thus prolonging the meeting. God help us. We will do better, that’s why I need you. Yes you reading this letter.

The overall plan this year is to engage the youths for Christ sake and it would be awesome. So much love will be made manifest all around us. I’m excited and confident that God is with us. God does his thing irrespective of how we feel because He knows us better than we do, so that’s why we should trust Him.

Here are the things to expect this year

-          Leadership Programmes

-          Community development programmes – The Roundabout Beautification Project. We are planning on developing and making the roundabout close to the church beautiful and a site to behold, isn’t that great? That would bring us together. We would fix a time and it would be communicated accordingly. Of course we would need funds but we are confident that God will provide it through us and everyone that God lays in his/her heart to be a part of the project. And we already have partnership for the project. That would be communicated too.

-          May 29th Programme and October 1st programmes. Theme, venue and time will be communicated too.

-          This year, the volunteering idea would be key for everyone. Meaning that EVERYBODY is a part of EVERYTHING we would do this year.

-          Youth discussions that happen every month asides the Bible study that takes place on the Saturday that precedes the 2nd Sunday of that month.

-          Sanitation projects (Bob-a-job) which will involve cleaning houses of members on chosen Saturday dates. We might have a team of people responsible for that.

-          Ideas from YOU are welcome. Not just suggesting ideas for the executives but making yourself available to drive the idea to see that it comes to pass. Because what’s the point of suggesting if you do not see it happen.

-          Collaboration with other youth groups and organizations.

This and many more would happen this year.

Now to the theme of the year, we believe that if we’re Christians and Youths, then Christ must be glorified through everything we do. Hence our theme for the year is ABIDING IN CHRIST which God led us to choose from the book of John chapter 15. You can read it through but summarizing it here, God’s presence is inside of you, that’s why you can read this. God lives in All of US and it should be evident. God has sworn to bless, strengthen and never leave us. God is too awesome and that’s not even enough to quantify how much HE cares for us.

YOU all are amazing people and have something to offer, Can we work together to see that JESUS be glorified in all that we do?

Answer this question and that would determine your support level to the group. You might be in school, or not having enough time but we sure need you everywhere you are.

Thank You.

IT'S FINALLY 2015!

If you are reading this right now, it's certain you made it to 2015. We are really grateful to God for keeping you our readers alive to see this new year.
