Don’t Confuse Yourself!

Happy New Month Y’all.

The first thing i saw on my Twitter Timeline when i came online this afternoon was an argument/discussion between @TheSanmi and @Dastan_. They both happen to be friends of mine because we attended the same high school. So we have some kind of history and i know them to a certain extent. Anyways they were arguing about homosexuality and then it led to religion,philosophy and history. In that circle shaa. Immediately i saw the subject i told myself i wasn’t getting involved. I don’t like arguments like this. I believe some things are better left unknown. No point arguing or demanding for explanations for ‘EVERYTHING’ in the universe as it was the case.

Moving on, after all’s been said @TheSanmi said he didn’t believe the Bible because a lot of things didn’t add up. I wasn’t surprised because he had earlier dedicated a post on his blog where he explained his shedding of Christianity and embrace of Agnosticism. What the hell does that even mean?? At first i was so disappointed you know. Someone whose parents are pastors and has a Godly background. (Not that he has to compulsorily follow their steps). I didn’t expect this. Buh then again i wasn’t so surprised given the kind of person Sanmi is. Straight A-student, exceptionally intelligent,versatile and extremely curious. He is one in a million. I always say i’m priviledged to have met someone like him in my life. I just heard he got into two Ivy League Schools in the US; Duke and Princeton. Right now he’s in his final year in ALA (African Leadership Academy) in SA. So with all this exposure, his values and beliefs would have been affected. He claims he’s going through a mid-life crisis and i’m like how old are you?? This shouldn’t even come up. Not now. At the end of the day,i concluded he is still immature. IMO that is. He needs time to rediscover himself before making certain decisions. I feel he still has his whole life ahead of him and i hope he returns to Christ before it’s too late. There’s nothing as good as been so successful with God’s backup.

Just few days ago, i culled a post from the Open Heavens devotional on the fact that it is very difficult to define God. It is not possible to understand who God really is as human understanding is too limited to actually understand who God truly is. God cannot be adequately described and He cannot be completely understood. He is beyond our understanding. That’s why i believe Sanmi should throw his energy in getting to know God. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you. He will give you understanding because he’s the only one that can. We can study the Bible from now till the end of the year, without the Holy Spirit, it will just be like reading a novel. He’s the only Teacher rather than grasping what philosophers or historians say.

Anyways i really hope and pray he has a rethink.
It is well.

  1. Ebun the concept of belief and principles can be very puzzling, to be frank with you Sanmi isn’t immature. I’ve been in his shoes before and you don’t want to be there, it’s a stage of extreme thinking beyond the natural. We could talk later

  2. I had this same discussion wiv my cuzn and I came to d same opinion as you :to understand the mysteries behind something,u have to employ the maker of the thing. In other words the Holy Spirit should be the one you should turn to for clarifications. But what if such a person doesn’t believe in the Holy Spirit?? Sowi for the epistle
