Thangs....

Sunday....enuff things men..anyways lets jump into it. Had my pastor and his wife over at my crib yest, it was nice, they liked my neighborhood..anyways they talked about trying to set up some singles events to link up all the 'decent sistas' and 'brothas' over here, who've graduated and are working, and well, looking for a yarinya. I wasn't down, since I am off the market, but I mentioned these to some friends of mine, who incidentally didn't belong to my church and they were more than interested...see the depths people would go to to just come to church..lol..
Something happened today which made me thank God I didn't take the Sunday school post, especially when they taught about stuff I do not believe in. From my position as technical person...I coordinate the slides for the service, so imagine when I saw the title.. sunday school "The moral dangers of modern dancing"...in my spirit filled head, I Was like WTF? These people done come again...and yeah it was exactly as I imagined. Let me break it down....dancing in the world today is meant to be evil, as it contains guys holding women they aren't married to, etc, and the choreography involves stimulating parts of the body...it promotes nakedness, etc.

They now linked it to the story of the golden calf, cus the Israelite where worshiping that thing and dancing....But for crying out loud, their sin, was worshiping an idol, not dancing. They even said it was the "devils" strategy for luring people since its the end times, etc. Men I began to ask myself, wetin be all this? This was the kind of things, and issues I had with xtianity, and even though I know these things are just peoples opinions, it still disturbs one. I had visions of myself not being able to celebrate my birthday, call my boiz, and just relax, or not been able to dance at my own wedding, cus I go dey think....what will they say?
Ol boi...f** that... If I wanna do konko below anywhere, I go do am, and if no one likes that, or think I'm any less of a xtian, because I do not carry the badge of always listening to gospel music, then so be it.
Of course I know people can go to extremes, and all that, and that one should be moderate in all stuff, but just to condemn an entire genre is wrong. They now said the dancing must only be for "Gods glory"..pray, who defines what Gods glory is? If I am happy, and having fun without trying to hurt anyone, is that not gloryfying? Soon, it will extend to what we listen to, read, etc...

I almost lost my mind over this some time back and never had anything to do with church folk because of that...its only madam that psyched me to go back, now I had to hear this....unfortunately, I will just have to just bone face, and just take what I Agree with and discard what I don't cus I can't say I wont go to church again because of that....wait till you see what they wrote about marriage algebra....jah dey sha. We were asked if we wanted to agree or disagree with what was said, but u know our naija pple, if I now raised my hand, dem go tag me as bad boi...so I just remove mind comot...
Sigh...religion...we got so much of it in Nigeria, yet we aren't moving forward...makes u ask some very tough questions.

I got so many novels, and books to read, and I am doing my language homework...arghhhh...which kin thing be this? We had a deliverance service today, and I was determined not to fall when hands were being laid on me...but I received a lot, and prayed for my loved ones n their families...
And my pastors son, likes to drag the keyboard with me, when I am trying to do the presentation slides for the service...anyways he's just still small....lol...
Anyways back to the issue of hooking us single brothas n sistas up...ol boi....after seeing some of the specimens here, no offense, I'd rather stay single n visit mrs hand...and thats in the event that I was single anyways which I Am not...thing is, I am not one of those people who settle for less because "ahh you cannot always have everything" , and "ooh, let us just manage"...someone once said something I like which is..."when the available becomes desirable, simply because the desirable becomes unavailable, then you are in bondage"....thing is, what I got going with my chick is too special, so if I have to wait longer...(almost a year now), then so be it...if I go one like this, I hope I don't begin to suffer from premature... afro can fill in the part, I am sure...lol..

Anyways guys, I am still here, still aiming for the top, and for my goals...and nothing, is gonna stop me...
laters!

If dancing is a sin what is shagging...cos I still think shagging can be excused if u dont feel in ur mind that its fornication...*wink
