And when he was gone forth into the way, there came one running, and kneeled to him, and asked him, Good Master, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life? And Jesus said unto him, Why callest thou me good? [there is] none good but one, [that is], God.
(Mark 10:17-18 KJV)
I was once sharing the gospel with someone who was quite adamant to reject it. Unfortunately for this fellow, he had some knowledge of the Scriptures. Though even the littlest knowledge of the Word of God is profitable and highly recommended, I deliberately use the term ‘unfortunate’ here because Please read on!
“In spite of thunderous warnings delivered from well-pounded pulpits, our self-centeredness seems to generate few bad consequences. And every youngster knows that shouting can be easily endured if there are no spankings. Please read on!
(This is my 60th post on ‘Deolu Blogs Here’! *Whoop! Whoop!* So, I decided to commemorate by sharing some of the deep things that have blessed me recently. Over to you, Mr Drummond! Oh, and it’s also my birthday today. Huh… -_- )
“EVERY one has asked himself the great question of antiquity as of the modern world: What is the summum bonum—the supreme good? You have life before you. Once only you can live it. What is the noblest object of desire, the supreme gift to covet? Please read on!
He was single-handedly taking the greatest risk in history…ever. Swinging one way, this act would culminate in he being forever despised, misunderstood, rejected…the works; the other way, and it would be joy…fellowship…understanding…acceptance…life!…love: forever. Please read on!

The night before what I’m about to describe occurred, my platoon was responsible for cooking, and they did well, I might add! When I went in the evening to get my meal, one of the ladies serving, a fellow 10 platoonite (quiet, Autocorrect!) gave me a very nice smile after I commended their efforts in the kitchen. I liked the smile, and her generally bubbly nature actually, so I decided I’d personally commend her later, so she’d keep up the good habit. Please read on!
