Article of Faith: The Sacrifice of Fools, By Femi Aribisala

To sacrifice the valuable, Jesus would have had to give up his eternal life in heaven. God said to the Israelites: “What do I care about incense from Sheba or sweet calamus from a distant land? Your burnt offerings are not acceptable; your sacrifices do not please me.” (Jeremiah 6:20).…

Article of Faith: Pastors are Jesus Killers, By Femi Aribisala

It is these pastors that decided to sacrifice Jesus. And their descendants are the pastors currently running our churches. Jesus is our redeemer. But from whom exactly does he redeem us? Does it make sense to presume he redeems us from God? Some terrorists kidnapped a rich man’s children and…

Jesus can never be a Sacrifice for Sins (3), Femi Aribisala

Pastors killed Jesus in order to hijack the Church of God as their inheritance. Who exactly killed Jesus? Or more precisely, who sacrificed him and to whom?

Jesus Can Never Be a Sacrifice for Sin (2), Femi Aribisala

Jesus will not offer to God the sacrifices he insists will not prevent people from perishing. --------------------------- On the Mount of Transfiguration, God the Father counsels that, henceforth, we should only listen to Jesus.  He puts this to dramatic effect by having Moses and Elijah, representing the law and the…

A Muslim/Muslim Presidential Disaster for the APC, By Femi Aribisala

Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad. The APC plan for a Muslim/Muslim ticket in this day and age in Nigeria is nothing short of madness. Bola Tinubu is standing on the horns of a dilemma. He became the godfather of the APC out of burning…

Article of Faith: The Holy Spirit is the Blood of Jesus, By Femi Aribisala

Article of Faith: Salvation from Coca-cola and Fanta, By Femi Aribisala

Of what consequence is living water when what you want is Coca-Cola?” At the Feast of Tabernacles, Jesus stood and cried out, saying: “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.  He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers…

Article of Faith: A Kingdom not of this World, By Femi Aribisala

Know this for certain: if it is popular in the world, then it cannot be of God. God says: “as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9). Jesus goes even further to reveal that…

Article of Faith: Daddy G.O, By Femi Aribisala

Article of Faith: Babalawo Pastors, By Femi Aribisala

Article of Faith: Christians are not Saved, By Femi Aribisala
