Much of the church today is living a lie. Many of you have been told continuously that you are saved and headed for heaven. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Many of you are heading directly to hell. The systemised lying that is going on in the church has deceived the pastors and the people alike. It is a case of the blind leading the blind. You all need to pray – fervently because many of you are “lost”. No matter what you call me, no matter how you view this issue, no matter what position you have, no matter what church you attend, you have to admit that something is wrong with the church.

The President-Elect, Muhammadu Buhari today met with President Goodluck Jonathan in Aso Rock where they held a meeting behind closed door. Though what they discussed was not made public, President Jonathan told journalists who sought to know what they discussed that a date would be scheduled to take Mr. Buhari on a familiarisation tour of the Aso Rock presidential villa.
“We will take a date when the president will come and I will show him round the state house but today is not for that. Today is to continue with our conversation. We don’t need to worry the President,” President Goodluck Jonathan said.
When asked how fruitful their conversion was, the president also said “You can see that we are smiling, it was a fruitful one”. The discussions were in the interest of the country, he said.
Gen. Buhari was also asked to comment on the meeting, but he simply said “The president had said it all”. See another photo below...
Oh dear! If you think the N192k bag scandal will get Tonto Dikeh down or take her off the internet for a min, then you are mistaken. Tonto has been posting the best of the best of her pictures online with the best been a photo of herself kissing her fiancé and also posting a link to her soon to be dropped video- Sugar Rush. Now have you seen that photo of Tonto Dikeh above before? No! She just posted it to tell you she is hot, and no drama can send her off the internet. She also tagged it #TigerHeart.... Like I said before, you don’t mess with Pokolee.
Btw, you also don’t mess with Dencia, but this isn’t Dencia’s sole fight, so she is just calming down!!!
But in Munachi’s case, she is smarter. Even though Muna posed for the camera she made sure the person who took the pic never reflected in the mirror! We however don’t know if the person was a man or woman, but there was no reflection, lol. Smart right?

Yeah I know I didn’t talk about his anniversary on Wednesday, because it didn’t really get to me. Got to work this morning and started playing his tribute video (the one above was on replay, say 10 times with tears) the one below (after the cut) was on replay say 4 times with smiles… Sad that he is really gone. Anyway this is just my own way of paying respect to a legend. Continue...
Find below my story. Please don't put my name on it.
I used to be a member of an old popular church, which has a branch in Shomolu. I attended the church for several years and everything was fine until I started going for the Wednesday programme organized by the pastor. I also started going to him for counselling. That was how my problem started.
Lol, Tonto Dikeh won’t be saying a word anymore on her alleged N192k bag debt. Remember Dencia has waded in and said Tonto should safe her face and pay up? Well instead of Tonto Dikeh replying Dencia or the said business owner, Tonto has decided to post a picture of herself and her fiancée saying she misses him and the distance between them right now is s3xy. Talk about war…. Lol you don't mess with pokolee.
