Nigerian Pastors Need To Be Born Again- Etcetera

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee, except a man be born of water and of the spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, ye must be born again” (John 3:1-7).

Photos: At Last Prophet Ajanaku Laid To Rest In Lagos After 11 Months Of Controversy

The founder and General Overseer of Christ Revival Victory Chapel International, Prophet Ireti Ajanaku who died August 2013, have finally been buried. Ajanaku was laid to rest yesterday, 17th of July 2014.
His corpse was brought to his church, where the praise and worship leader asked the people of the church to stop mourning because they have come to celebrate him and not mourn him. Most of them wore a light Blue shirt with the inscription, ‘God of Ajanaku is Alive’ and the picture of the deceased conspicuously displayed in the front.

Though some of his church members couldn’t hold back their tears, a lot of people were however surprised when his wife, joy who says her husband is not dead but now lives in her, yelled and cried countlessly rolling on the floor and screaming her husband’s name as people around tried to console her. It will also be of note that, during the burial service, no one referred to the prophet as ‘late’. More pictures after the cut courtesy of E247magazine.

Malala’s Visit: Our Help Does Not Come From Above - Tofarati Ige

I woke up quite early, and to pass the time, I took to my phone and began to go through my Facebook timeline. My attention was soon piqued by a particular thread which talked about Pakistani child activist, Malala Yousafzeni's recent meeting with President Goodluck Jonathan.

Even though this 17-year-old girl managed to get our OWN president to see the parents of our OWN girls abducted over three months ago in our OWN country, they were of the opinion that her visit was merely a waste of time and aviation fuel.
