In God’s Name by Charly Boy

Published

Charly Boy talks about religion is his latest article. Read below…

My guy, things are falling apart and the Center can no longer hold. People just dey craze anyhow and dem go see anyhow.  Jungle don mature, HA!!! I fit faint. When I was a little boyin the city of Peterkwa, called Port-Harcourt, I was taught NEVER to use God’s name in vain. Nowadays, everybody just dey call God name anyhow dem like.  When Yahoo yahooboys dey pray for good business, dem go call Him name before they obtain. Armed robbers pray, before they go for an operation, dem go hala Him name. Some of our governors are using prayers to confuse their people as they plunder the land with impunity. Bone faceBragadoooo. Some of them these days claim they talk with God, they claim they are MEN of God, they also use God’s name to obtain big time from their congregation.

Several religious wars have been fought in God’s name, politicians loot and run down the country in God’s name, Kenyan terrorist attackers paused  for prayers before they continued their killings, all they did was done in God’s name, hideous criminals operate, relying on God’s name, great crimes and atrocities are committed, all in God’s name. Chinekee God, are you there?
Throughout history, religion has been used as an excuse or driving force for some of the worst atrocities unimaginable. From prehistory to modern history, religion is for many people just an excuse to kill some people, obtain from some people, lie to some people, and cause all ‘kinda’ katakata, all in the name of God. This is not FAIR! Biko!
I was watching CNN the other day and the news of the Bishop of Limburg, Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst popularly called The BLING Bishop, being ordered to Rome to answer to his choice of mounting an extravagant new residence complex which blew out to at least 31 million euros ($42 million). Not too long the German church had suffered fallout from a child séx scandal. Kai!  Madness!
I simply don’t understand this, using church funds to enrich ones’ self or satisfy ones’ selfish desire. $42 million, what for? Did he forget that people contributed this money, that this money was hard earned money worked for by members of the congregation?
My major concern is why he wants to destroy the mission and vision of Pope Francis, the most popular Pope since the history of the Vatican. The true Man of God the world has come to love. Which one we go talk, His reforms, His Humility, His Simplicity, His Spirituality, His exemplary life according to the teachings of Jesus Christ, why this German Bishop want to pour sand san into the pope’s “garri”. I don’t know.
These days you will hear most Pentecostal pastors talk about how God spoke to them, how they were called, how they have amazing powers, bla bla bla, how they received the anointing. How they can cast and bind, I tire for all these wash wash pastors. Some of these men of very questionable background and character are all over the place now. Telling all who cares to listen how they drink Tea with the Almighty God. Some families have already been put asunder because the pastor somehow is ‘remote controlling’ wives looking for the fruit of the womb, by testing the merchandise personally. kai!
 They are the real Abrakadabra in God’s name. Dem no send. I don’t know if I’m the only one confused, but I don’t see the difference between pastors and native doctors any more. If you are still sane, maybe you can help me differentiate; the craze for private jets; pastors/politicians, wearing of expensive suits; pastors/conmen wearing million dollar wrist watches; pastors/conmen, building expensive schools; pastors/politicians, casting, binding and miracle explosion; pastors/native doctors, embezzling public funds; the list is endless. These days we don’t know the difference between san sand and garri. Odikwa risky. Are these pastors truly men of God or business men capitalizing on people’s frustrations? What is their original calling sef, to compete in worldly riches or to win souls like it is said?
How can you be living extravagantly when some church members can’t even afford a meal? That is the height of wickedness. Enough of the deceit, enough of turning the bible upside down to suit people’s ears while they suffer in poverty.
We need spirituality not religiosity. Even with all these churches at every junction and every bending corner, in every brothel and hotel, morality is at an all-time low. The church should be a place for spiritual nourishment and not a kalokalo venture, or for prosperity preaching. Pastors should concentrate more on how we should all be our brother’s keepers, rather than praying for us to be rich like them. God does not operate like a Babalawo, neither is he a Nigerian.  I am wondering if me too won’t open my own church (runs away), but it will be different because I will never use Gods name in vain. All these our so called Men of God should come out and hustle like real men and stop using psychology to deceive people and take their money. Haba!!!  I guess that is their hustle. Where is the humility that Christ talked about? If anyone is not leading by the examples of Jesus just like the pope, then his ‘Man-of-god-izm’ is very questionable. I thought they said the meaning of Christianity was to be Christ- like? I’m just wondering. Maybe I’m lost.Abeg, I rest my case joor. Man of God my ebony ass, who dash dem? I am even a better BOY of GOD than those MEN OF GOD. Gbam!

    Many of our problems in this nation is as a result of our very own gullibility. Like Charly said,they make use of extreme psychology to instill fear into their listeners and congregation. I am personally tired of a country that have more pastors and aspiring pastors than those ready to work hard and stake their lives for their future. Let God be the judge like I would always say because we are earth now,nobody knows the mind and heart of God. Buy private jet all you want,help husbands service their wives and partake in the divine injunction of multiplication. I will not stop you now;but I surely will when the time is ripe. The youths of this nation are getting in the know about these obnoxious activities and I tell you,those “men of themselves” must all account for every penny both here on earth and later in heaven. We keep our fingers crossed and await the moment.
    God bless your soul Charles.

    True talk, most people are gullible, problem and poverty has denied them sense of reasoning. Let God be the judge. Signs and wonders follows us when we worship God in truth and spirit. But now we are chasing miracles whiLe we keep God behind. God help usoooo.

Water tank driver accuses Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Rivers

Published

Self-acclaimed Port Harcourt First Son, Duncan Mighty is currently trending on social media for the wrong reasons.

A water tank driver, Okabam John has accused singer, Duncan Mighty of assaulting him in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

It was gathered that the incident reportedly happened on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at about 9:40am when the driver was on duty.

Narrating his ordeal to some Civil Rights Activists on Tuesday November 24, after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital, John, a native of Elele Town in Ikwerre Local Government Area of the state and an employee of Julius Berger Nigeria Limited, claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk.

According to the driver, while on duty a private car was parked close to his water filling spot. He tried notifying the driver who refused to wind down. He reportedly bent his head to talk to the driver only to discover it was Duncan Mighty.

John said that before he could speak, the singer allegedly struck his head using a traditional staff. He said the second strike was blocked with his hand. He claimed that he could not see when the singer drove off as his eyes were covered with blood.

Confirming the incident on Tuesday, one Ndubueze Obodowhuo, accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and scalp laceration.”

Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice. His post below:

“This is Mr. OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.

“According to Mr. OKABAM JOHN a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.

“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because, blood covered his eyes at that moment.

“Mr. Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.

“Mr. OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurance.”
