Leafy Lesson

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life.
Romans 5:10

The above passage was a mental block for me. It just didn’t make (total) sense. I mean for years oh…you know when they say you lagi mo somtin?

Shameful Even To Mention?

Live as children of light (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. Ephesians 5:8–12

‘In June 1995, a panel of the Church of England recommended that the phrase “living in sin” be abandoned and that unmarried couples, heterosexual and homosexual alike, be “given encouragement and support” in their lifestyles and more readily welcomed into Anglican congregations. Suggesting that “loving homosexual relations and acts” are intrinsically no less valuable than heterosexual ones, the panel proposed that love should be allowed to be expressed “in a variety of relationships.”28 Although such a statement is hardly surprising in today’s world, it is shocking to hear it from an established church, and to know that other church denominations have asserted similar ideas.

The Story of Three Codenamed Ladies – ‘A’

*There once was a reporter who prided himself on being a daring investigative journalist. Having gotten the scoop on quite a number of gangs and cartels, he sought a new peak in his career, and decided to spy on one of the most elusive criminals on the face on the earth – none other than the king of Hell himself.

The following is the transcript of what he uncovered from his investigations, translated from spirit-talk to English with a hint of vernacular, due to the reporter’s heritage.*

My First Poem (kinda…)

As I’ve said time and again, my poetry sucks. And with daunting examples like this lady, ou cette mademoiselle, o ésta señorita, or this brother of mine (see his Facebook profile for more recent ones), in all likelihood it’ll continue being sucky for a loooong time compared to theirs…It’s like some people just have this ‘jazz’, crafting words in ways that catapult to terrestrial planes. Me? I write and wonder what rhymes with ‘orange’. -__-

But hey, what is life if you can’t attempt something new, right? (So long as it’s okay by God oh… *coughs*) Who knows, I may even become good at this!

Well, with this attempt, patapata, you wee laugh at me, but then I will shake it off and improve, hopefully! Yay!

Or I’ll go to my corner and cry all over my keyboard… 😥

With that, here goes: my first poem. Laugh away!   Enjoy   Bear with me. Please read on!

An All-Too-Common (and Unfortunate) Irony

“The state of spiritual folly is, I suppose, one of the most universal evils in the world. For the number of those who are naturally foolish is exceedingly great; of those, I mean, who understand no worldly thing well; of those who are careless about everything, carried about by every breath of opinion, without knowledge, and without principle.

“But the term spiritual folly includes, unhappily, a great many more than these; it takes in not those only who are in the common sense of the term foolish, but a great many who are in the common sense of the term clever, and many who are even in the common sense of the terms, prudent, sensible, thoughtful, and wise. It is but too evident that some of the ablest men who have ever lived upon earth, have been in no less a degree spiritually fools. Please read on!

“The Greatest Thing In The World.”

(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 Begins It All

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!
