WE ARE NOT DOGS (2)

 

“So what do we do?’ you ask. I am tempted to say like the Nigerian singer, Omawunmi, “If you ask me, na who I go ask?” but I will not say that because I know there is a solution.

  Let us all agree that there is a problem

  Let us also agree that every problem has a solution

  Let us decide that we have the power to do something about it

  Let us identify what the possible solutions are

  Let us put our hands on the plow

Let us start with the issue of Islamization: what really is our fear of Islamization? If we identify our fear and its root cause it is easier to address the issue and apply the proper solution. Islam will not allow you to practice  your beliefs in the way you want to, and when I say ‘beliefs’ please read ‘lifestyle.’ So what to do? Let me first address my primary constituency, the Christians. The first thing we must do is study the Bible. The book of Joshua, chapter 1 verse 8 says, ‘This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night; that you may observe to DO according to ALL that is written it; then you will make your way prosperous and then you will have good success.” (emphasis mine)

There is a way out of the quagmire and it is found in the Bible. Buhari is not a Christian and you should not expect him to be the one to meditate and observe to do. That is your duty as a Christian. Meditate on ‘this book of the law’ and ‘observe’ then ‘do ALL!’ Proverbs 21: 1 says, “The heart of the King is in the hands of the LORD, and like rivers of water, He turns it wherever He wills.” Selah!

You are a Christian and you do not want Nigeria to become an Islamic country , no problem, the solution lies in your hands~it is right there in the book you have been asked to meditate on.

2 Corinthians 10:3-6 lays it out: “For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.”

Let us break that down: to be continued..
