“Let Europe Keep Their Homosexual Nonsense There And Live With It”- Robert Mugabe

GAYS 8Is that what Europe and America want to teach Africa when the continent hasn’t yet found solutions to its Aids, malaria, Ebola and other deadly diseases?

“Let Europe keep their homosexual nonsense there and live with it. We will never have it here.” This is a statement the Zimbabwean leader, Robert Mugabe made during a speech in July 2013.

Mugabe has reacted again  “I’ve just concluded, since President Obama endorses the same-sex marriage, advocates homosexual people and enjoys an attractive countenance – thus, if it becomes necessary, I shall travel to Washington, DC, get down on my knee and ask his hand, mocking the US Supreme Court’s decision.

Selfishness, greed, power and the media’s hypocrisy, prevent people to understand Robert Mugabe. Africa is the least respected continent in the world, but when it comes to things the continent isn’t interested, why do world leaders and the stupid media fail to understand?

Homosexuality is regarded as an abominable act in Africa. But this social vice which is less popular in the continent is now becoming famous in many African countries, turning the countries into an unnerving place to live in, because church leaders and many organizations against this practice, wouldn’t like to embrace this type of culture to add to their own culture.

At times, I do ask my self over and over, do Europeans and Americans think Africa will accept whatever they are interested? Africa has nothing to do with Christianity before the white missionaries ever went there. They thought Africans to follow the Bible teachings. Well, later the truth was discovered. The reason was not to let Africans know about Christ but to loot.

Fortunately, many parts of Africa derived interest in the Bible and studied it thoroughly, therefore living by its teachings. An African Christian, explaining his point to defend his hate against homosexuality, would take one deep step into the Bible, to give you a reference. Two of such scriptures confirming that homosexuality is an evil act can be read at  1st Timothy, chapter 10 and 1st Corinthians, chapter 6, verse 9.

Women 4They called it same-sex marriage in Europe and America, but Africans are not used to this.

The question is: “Why are Europeans and other Gay Rights Organizations, now fighting for the practice of homosexuality to be recognized in Africa, when they have already been there with the Holy Bible, a book telling Christians how evil the practice of homosexuality is?” The teachings of the Holy Bible can’t be reversed, so I am afraid to say that Africa can never change its mind or opinion on the negative aspects of homosexuality.

Africa is already overwhelmed by many diseases, such as AIDS, Ebola, and malaria, therefore it makes sense when they don’t want that practice. Europeans,  Americans and some organizations, are the first people that voices are heard whenever there is any bad situation in Africa. But whenever there is an epidemic, the respond to contain the situation never comes or very slow.

Africa has learned a lot from their misfortunes, that is the reason it is fighting against homosexuality today. Unfortunately, the path Uganda has taken to deal with this issue is totally out of course. The proposal for the death penalty for homosexuals is sheer madness. Violence against homosexuals is not an option or solution.

Why did Obama choose to endorse same-sex marriage throughout America during the last moments in his office? That’s what is called ‘Politricks.’ He wants votes for his party, because to them, power matters, not the restoration of the decaying society.

You’ve Got The Power To Liberate Yourself From Depression

optimized-dep-6

Suicide is not a solution to free yourself from the world’s problems

Everyone has wonderful hopes, dreams, and expectations of their future, but many times what we are looking for never come our way. Some of us have been robbed of our joy through the loss of a loved one and many feel lonely and hopeless when they find themselves in abusive homes and domestic violence.

In such a troubled world, it’s very easy to see the ailments of the society taking its toll on people. The high rate of unemployment and divorce, are also some of the causes leading to depression. It’s not surprised that psychologists have confirmed that the ailments of people can be traced from the homes and environment they were raised.

We understand that as human beings, we are bound to face difficulties in our lives, the important question is: How do we handle those problems we experience? According to World Federation for Mental Health, depression is a significant contributor to the global burden of disease and affects people in all communities across the world.

Today, depression is estimated to affect 350 million people. The World Mental Health Survey conducted in 17 countries found that on average about 1 in 20 people reported having an episode of depression. But do you know that you have the power to overcome loneliness and depression?

Why some people easily succumbed to depression and others able to resist? The happy people we often meet on the street are not super humans. They are only happy because experience in life has taught them that happiness is yourself. Someone can make you unhappy, prevent your success, or do everything to hurt you, but so long as you are a living being, you have the power, desire, inspiration or everything it takes to liberate yourself from that misery, loneliness or depression.

Fear, anxiety, depression and loneliness can easily be prevented than you know. Instead of living on drugs and alcohol, which rather increase your psychological problems, there are some recommended steps which can keep one far from loneliness and depression. Reading interesting books as a hobby can capture your imagination to avoid depression.

If you love to stay at home, please cultivate the habit of taking a walk through the gardens, doing window shopping, joining social clubs. Going to the gym to exercise once or twice a week doesn’t only keep you fit but also psychologically healthy. You may have a hidden talent but you don’t know. Find out what you are very good at, follow it and start blogging to create your happiness.

Another important factor is financial matters, which often wear people down psychologically. When facing financial problems, you need a healthy mind to find your way out not a depressed mind.  I can’t do it, I’m not sure I can succeed, there is nothing left for me in life, are all ‘symptoms’ of depression. Take away the shackle off your body and free mind from the psychological chain damaging your health.

Great Men Knocked Down By Women: Will It Ever Come To An End?

Place 2Great men in sex scandals: Top, from left to right, Bill Clinton, John Profumo , Kobe Bryant and below, from left to right, Mike Tyson, Tiger Woods and Jeffery Archer.

Newspapers often come out with stories of great people, including politicians and celebrities in sex scandals, turning their lives upside down. Because they weren’t strong enough to control their sexual desire or too weak to resist the charm and power of attractive ladies. From Biblical times, there are stories of infidelity and adultery, putting many great men in the worst positions.

One of such stories recorded in the scriptures is that of King David, a composer, the author of the book of Psalms. He couldn’t control his desire after seeing Uriah’s wife through his window taking her bath. After failing to persuade Uriah to sleep with his wife, to concede his sin and pregnancy of Bathsheba, David sent Uriah to the hottest part of a battlefield to get him killed. God severely punished David for his sinful act and the child died after birth.

Giving examples of Biblical records of great men involved in sex scandals wouldn’t be intriguing, so let’s shift to our past and present generation. On June 5, 1963, British Secretary of War John Profumo resigns his post after confessing that he had lied to the House of Commons about his sexual affair with Christine Keeler, an alleged prostitute. The scandal didn’t affect him alone but threatened to topple Prime Minister Harold Macmillan’s government.

A couple of years ago, it was revealed that former president of the USA, Bill Clinton, is involved in an affair with a former staff of the White House, Monica Lewinski. I watched as people argued that the story couldn’t be true. Is Clinton different from other great men women had brought to their knees? To make matters worse, after Clinton’s denial of not having any relationship with Monica, he later admitted to having sexual intercourse with Monica Lewinski.

What about the boxer Mike Tyson? He was convicted and jailed for raping Desire Washington. According to the story, Tyson invited her to his hotel room. To do what behind closed doors?  Later Mike Tyson was convicted of rape.  Many believe that Desire lied of being raped by Tyson, unfortunately not everyone believes that. Mike Tyson served his prison sentence but never became the iron Mike he used to be.  In one of his fights, after coming from prison, frustrated Tyson bit the ear of Evander Holyfield. They say the downfall of a man is not the end of his life, but at times some events and situations can be destructive.

Some years back in Britain, the famous British novelist Jeffery Archer, won a libel suit against the Sun newspaper for an article about him sleeping with a prostitute. According to Mr. Jeffery Archer, the story was untrue and it damaged his reputation. The author of ‘Not a Penny More, Not a Penny Less’ was finally exposed. He admitted to having asked a friend to lie on his behalf to conceal the truth. So he did really sleep with a prostitute. The startling new revelation affected Jeffery Archer such that he stepped down from contesting the seat as the mayor of London. Oh, what a shame?

On September 1, 2004, the criminal sexual assault case against Kobe Bryant, the NBA star, was dropped by the prosecutors because the accuser no longer wanted to participate in the court process.   This was after Kobe Bryant was charged with sexual assault of a 19-year-old woman in a Colorado hotel where she worked. The question is “why is it that the mighty keep falling from the hands of women?” Is it lust, lack of control or temptation which is causing these problems? I can’t really unfold the mystery behind this.

One of such news about men involved in sex scandals, which shocked the world, was the case of the successful golfer, Tiger Woods. With such a  great career, leading him to all the corners of the world and winning great tournaments, the married man lost focus and hit the golf ball into the underwear of porno stars, severely damaging his reputation and career.  I am a man, therefore I know the comfort and satisfaction at that place which belongs to a woman, but I am aware of the dangers and temptation, especially if you are a married man.

According to the scriptures, God places people in situations where He tests their faith and commitment.  Why God does test us when He knew the man will fail? Is man trying to get back the rib God used to create the Eve-woman, while the woman fights hard to keep it? If God really tests man, then a man should pass the trial by not falling into temptations, because He also gave man power to resist temptation. In this case, a man shouldn’t blame God or woman for his failure.

Another question worth to bring on the table is: Can these bitter stories serve as a lesson to other men? Time will tell, but I don’t think so. Men will always drift into danger since the body is weak to resist temptation, moreover, Satan is like a hungry lion, lurking around the corner, looking for its next victim to devour, but we mustn’t allow him to catch us.

Color struck: America’s White Jesus Is A Global Export And false Product

Article By Wesley Muhammad, PhD.

What color was Jesus? Most American Christians—Black and White—would dismiss this question as both irrelevant and unanswerable as the Gospels fail to give us a physical description. The irony is that most of these same Americans in their heart of hearts are pretty confident any way that they know what color Jesus was. They attend churches with images of a tall, long haired, full bearded White man depicted in stained glass windows or painted on walls, and they return home to the same depictions framed in their living room or illustrating their family Bibles.

Further compounding the irony is the fact that America actually has an obsession with the (presumed) color of Christ and has exported her White Americanized Savior around the world, as recently documented by Edward J. Blum and Paul Harvey in their book, The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America (2012).

In fact, the world’s most popular and recognizable image of Christ is a distinctly 19th-20th century American creation. It is true that versions of the “White Christ” appear in European art as early as the 4th century of the Christian era, but these images coexisted with other, nonwhite representations throughout European history. The popularity of the cult of the Black Madonna and Black Christ throughout Europe is evidence of the fact that the European ‘White Christs’ never acquired the authority and authenticity that the White Christ now has globally. This Christ and his authority are American phenomena. As a predominantly Protestant nation Early America rejected the imaging of Christ that characterized European Catholicism.

By the mid-19th century, however, in response to American expansion, splintering during the Civil War and subsequent reconstructing, “Whiteness” took on a new significance and a newly- empowered “White Jesus” rose to prominence as the sanctifying symbol of a new national unity and power. As Blum and Harvey observe:

“By wrapping itself with the alleged form of Jesus, whiteness gave itself a holy face … With Jesus as white, Americans could feel that sacred whiteness stretched back in time thousands of years and forward in sacred space to heaven and the second coming … The white Jesus promised a white past, a white present, and a future of white glory.”

As America rose to superpower status in the 20th century she became the world’s leading producer and global exporter of White Jesus imagery through film, art, American business, and Christian missions, and has thereby defined the world’s view of the Son of God. This globally recognizable Jesus is a totally American product. Indeed, he is an American. Warner Sallman’s iconic image of Jesus called Head of Christ (1941) became the most widely reproduced piece of artwork in world history and its depiction the most recognizable face of Jesus in the world.

By the 1990’s it had been printed over 500 million times and achieved global iconic status. With smooth white skin, long, flowing blondish-brown hair, long beard and blue eyes, this Nordic Christ consciously disguised any hint of Jesus’s Semitic, oriental origin—and departed from the older European depictions. It both shaped and was shaped by emerging American ideas of whiteness. The beloved White Jesus of today’s world was Made in America.

What, then, did Jesus actually look like? Despite the absence of a detailed description of Jesus’s physical appearance in the Gospels (though John the Revelator saw the risen Christ apparently with wooly hair and black feet, Rev. 1:14-15), there are non-biblical evidences that actually allow us to visualize the Son of God from Nazareth.

Revelation 1:14-15 – King James Version (KJV)

14) His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;

15) And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

The first century Jewish writer Josephus (37-100 AD) penned the earliest non-biblical testimony of Jesus. He reportedly had access to official Roman records on which he based his information and in his work Halosis or the “Capture (of Jerusalem),” written around 72 A.D., Josephus discussed “the human form of Jesus and his wonderful works.” Unfortunately his texts have passed through Christian hands which altered them, removing offensive material. Fortunately, however, Biblical scholar Robert Eisler in a classic 1931 study of Josephus’ Testimony was able to reconstruct the unaltered testimony based on a newly-discovered Old Russian translation that preserved the original Greek text. According to Eisler’s reconstruction, the oldest non-Biblical description of Jesus read as follows:

“At that time also there appeared a certain man of magic power … if it be meet to call him a man, [whose name is Jesus], whom [certain] Greeks call a son of [a] God, but his disciples [call] the true prophet … he was a man of simple appearance, mature age, black-skinned (melagchrous), short growth, three cubits tall, hunchbacked, prognathous (lit. ‘with a long face’ [macroprosopos]), a long nose, eyebrows meeting above the nose … with scanty [curly] hair, but having a line in the middle of the head after the fashion of the Nazaraeans, with an undeveloped beard.”

This short, black-skinned, mature, hunchbacked Jesus with a unibrow, short curly hair and undeveloped beard bears no resemblance to the Jesus Christ taken for granted today by most of the Christian world: the tall, long haired, long bearded, white-skinned and blue eyed Son of God. Yet, this earliest textual record matches well the earliest iconographic evidence.

The earliest visual depiction of Jesus is a painting found in 1921 on a wall of the baptismal chamber of the house-church at Dura Europos, Syria and dated around 235 A.D. The Jesus that is “Healing the Paralytic Man” (Mark 2:1-12) is short and dark-skinned with a small curly afro – see below.

This description has now been supported by the new science of forensic anthropology. In 2002 British forensic scientists and Israeli archaeologists reconstructed what they believe is the most accurate image of Jesus based off of data obtained from the multi-disciplinary approach. In December 2002 Popular Science Magazine published a cover story on the findings which confirm that Jesus would have been short, around 5”1’, hair “short with tight curls,” a weather-beaten face “which would have made him appear older,” dark eyes and complexion: “he probably looked a great deal more like a dark-skinned Semite than Westerners are used to seeing,” they concluded. The textual, visual, and scientific evidence agrees, then: Jesus likely was a short, dark-skinned Semite with short curly hair and dark eyes.

Colossians 1:15 describes Christ as the “image of the unseen God” and in the Gospel of John (12:45; 14:9) Jesus declares that whoever sees him has seen God. What Jesus “looks like” then is not irrelevant as it is in some way a pointer to God Himself.

It is said that everyone has a book inside them, and I’ve wanted to write mine since I was seventeen. It took a long time to get around to it, but now I’m finding it hard to stop.

My debut novel, The Sister, hit the UK Kindle top 100 chart soon after release in late January 2014, peaking at no 81, something I’d have never thought possible, except in my dreams. It’s still selling.
The book led to a listing in the Top 50 Crime Writers to Watch in 2014 and also received a Gold Medal award from HarperCollins site Authonomy, earlier this year.

The second book, The Life and Times of William Boule, is an action, adventure, crime thriller, and follows the lives of several characters introduced in The Sister. The story is complete in its own right – you don’t have to have read the earlier book to enjoy it. Released late summer 2014, it’s been well received, gaining some excellent reviews.

My third novel, The Night of The Mosquito, will be released 29 September 2015. It’s an interesting blend of crime, mystery and psychological thriller. Set against an apocalyptic backdrop, it’s a roller-coaster ride of a story!

Currently, I’m working on a fourth novel, an expansion of the short story, Don’t Turn on The Light.

Other work in the pipeline, includes another three Miller stories, The Man in Brown, Finding Her, and The Resurrectionists.

I can’t write quickly enough, but at the same time, I recognize the need to develop great characters, produce good, solid story lines, and quality writing. I hope those of you who’ve enjoyed my books so far will continue to do so.

What’s Dominating Us In This Generation

Dangerous 2

Original article posted by daniabbott11: (November 1, 2015)

In our time today, a lot of useful things had evolved. Communication, hobbies, studying, and a lot more can all be done easily. Everything is modern in this generation. People are becoming great in their field of work and interests. Great musicians are everywhere, great writers, great poets, great thinkers, great scientists, great athletes, great entertainers, great technologists and a lot more great people. But how are we doing with being a plain person? Are we also doing a great job?

We are living today in a world where beauty and fame is the main measurement of being a person. Notice how all we see today in the television and in the magazines are just pretty faces. Of course, one component of being a celebrity is having a pretty face, but do we take notice of those people who are not that pretty but offer a lot of talent, do we give them an opportunity to make themselves shine? What about those people who are great thinkers but are too shy to make themselves notice?

Do we take notice of them and do we help them express themselves? And notice how cheaters, thieves and liars are dominating us. In school, cheaters are given high marks while those who studied and didn’t cheat sink at the bottom of the class. Look at the cheaters graduating and becoming thieves, liars and forever cheaters. Take notice of the people working hard but still whatever they do seems like it’s never enough. Why? It’s because we take them for granted.

When someone famous gives a shallow and stupid statement it goes trending worldwide and when someone talks about something sensible and intelligent we judge them for being too boring or worse we won’t even care. This only proves that we are letting fame, beauty and lies dominate us. Great ideas are dominated by shallow thinking. Great work is dominated by lies and fame. “Who cares who did this and that? Who cares who said this and that?

They’re not famous anyway.” Why don’t we make them famous instead of those we keep on worshipping when they don’t even contribute to the betterment of this world? I’m not saying that it’s wrong to entertain ourselves once in a while, it’s not wrong to love some artists, it’s not wrong to love what we’re seeing but what is wrong is letting those things we love dominate our society. It is wrong to let those we see, watch, hear and idolize takeover of what we’re supposed to be thinking and doing.

That’s the main reason why we’re getting worse. People are hating each other because they don’t like the same artists, smart people are being stupid because stupid people are becoming more stupid, people are willing to kill just for power and fame, it won’t be long when we’re all acting and living like cavemen. Sensible people are losing hope in living, can we blame them? Can we judge them for being weak?

No, we can’t because the forces of those people who are blinding themselves with greed and nonsense are becoming too strong. Smart people opt to stay quiet instead of being judge. No, they are not weak, some of them are not shy, they just don’t want to stoop down the level of mediocrity and shallowness in thinking of those people surrounding them.

Belgium: Never Feel Sorry For A Mad Dog, It Will Turn Round And Bite You

mad

If you want to know how cruel some people can be, just give them an inch. They will go for a yard, or give them a yard, they will definitely go for a mile. That’s the attitude of greedy and power thirsty people. All what they care about is power and they always look for the weak one to dominate, mishandle, torture, abuse and degrade them in every way they feel satisfied about it. The reason there is no peace in this world, but total chaos.

Many do ask the reason my articles reflect or show bitterness. There are many things one may find it difficult to understand, but if you are a black man or knows the bitter experience of the black man, you will quickly know or understand, the reason this person is very bitter. In a country like Belgium, which they don’t value the life of an African, just like how many don’t value the life of a Palestine, don’t expect me to be very happy, because they manufacture quality chocolates or beer.

I live in a country run by leaders including the Royal Family, even though the latter aren’t active in Belgium’s politics. In the same country, is a statue of a man, from the Royal Family who committed a serious crime in Africa during the colonial era. Leopold II killed and disfigured over ten million Africans, including children, yet Belgium thought he deserves a statue and streets named after him.

Would anyone be happy if treated like that? If you have a clean heart and love your neighbour like yourself, you will know this is not right, but completely wrong or even an abomination. That’s my bitterness. Call me a bad person and let God ask you: What do you worship Satan? Any time I see the statue of Leopold in Brussels, my blood runs cold, but I am powerless. I am not a terrorist to throw a bomb at that statue, to bring it down like how Sadam Hussein’s came tumbling down. But since the pen is mightier than the sword, I will continue to write and make my message clear to the Belgium leaders.

They can ignore me because ‘I am a common African, many people without sincere heart use as door mat,’ but I will remind them that “The chicken always comes back home to roost.” If you plant orange, you will reap an orange and if you plant evil, you will reap evil. They will one day have a taste of their own medicine, before they will fully understand the bitterness of this writer. It’s really sad but Africans shall continue to endure it without suicide like always.

How can the world go free for Jesus Christ who didn’t commit any crime to carry the cross alone? Those who committed the crime like Belgium, deserves to carry Christ’s heavy load. The reason I will never feel sorry for Belgium.
