Pastoral Political Views - a short story by A.B.King

   Once upon a time in a country called Nigeria there lived a very influential pastor named Obinna Okafor. He loved the Lord with all his heart & he  carried a great burden to preach the gospel in his heart. Nigeria however was going through a very difficult time – a time more difficult than it had ever had before.    Pastor Obinna did not believe that pastors and the church should be involved in politics. He spoke out on his national TV show against a bunch of pastors who during the elections were telling people plus their congregation to vote for a certain Christian electoral candidate. Pastor Obinna had greater influence than any other spiritual figure in Nigeria so people listened to him. The Christian electoral candidate ended up losing.    Pastor Obinna did not have any problem with Christians running for office but he had a problem with Pastors telling their congregation who to vote for.   As time went on Pastor Obinna ended up convincing almost 80% of all the Christians and pastors in Nigeria of what he believed.    Soon the teachings of Pastor Obinna was preached and supported by other pastors but it had some how turned into the concept that a Christian should not be concerned about politics or events in the nation they are in. That we are supposed to be concerned only about the kingdom of God.   So when the elections day came only a handful of Christians even bothered to vote.    After the elections and the votes where counted it turned out that the election was worn by a radical who notoriously hated Christians.   After he was sworn in, his first act as the military president of Nigeria was to order for all Christians to be killed.
The End.

The Body Inside Your Body Is Not Your Body - a poem by Alfred

They say, every woman has the Right to do what she likes with her body/
But the Body inside your Body is not your body/
A baby is not the Mother, And the Mother is not the baby/
A Bentley is not the Driver, And the Driver is not the Bentley/
Your baby is not you, It's just Parked in your Body/
But if your Baby is your body, Why Abort your own body/
Let's not rename Murder, in other to commit Murder/
Let's not rename Genocide, and call it Parental Planning/
Or Planned Parenthood or Family Planning/
What kind of Parental Plan suggests killing the family?/
How can you be Pro-Choice by robbing the baby's choice?/
The decision to Live or Die belongs to the Life involved/
How dare you choose Death without hearing the Baby's voice/
The Pro-Choice movement is Anti-Choice/

Our Boys In Blue - a poem by Alfred

Through Cold or Heat, Through Strength or Pain/
They Carry our Troubles, All Night, All Day/
They Risk their Future, To Keep us Safe/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police, No one would be Safe/
Bodies would paint the Street like Syria Today/
After the West played Chess and won the Game/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
Without Police in America, today/
Your Head and Your Body could be in different States/
One Part in Alabama, The Other part Up-State/
Have you said a Prayer, For a Cop today?/
We owe our Lives to Our Boys In Blue/
They carry the weight of the Red, White, and Blue/
And make it a Nation all Nations come to/
Have you said Thanks, To a Cop today?/

Why You Should Share This Post:  Because unlike some people, we Love & Respect those who risk their lives for us everyday.

Madiba Says - a poem by Alfred

Success awaits every man at the top of the hill/
But after she shakes your hands, you see another hill/
New hills grow taller if you pause to sleep/
Success has feet, she can just get up and leave/
A Real Leader must love this people more than he loves himself/
And be willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for them/
He must be dead to self, and live for them/
Otherwise he might ruin them while saving himself/
Freedom doesn't mean having no chains on your wrists/
It struts forward to mean liberating others wrists/
So if you don't liberate others you're imprisoned yourself/
The walls are invisible but they are still there/
Education is the most powerful W.M.D/
To destroy the destruction of humanity/
Don't judge me by conquered Mountain Tops/
Judge me by the times I fell and got back up/

The Quotes By Nelson Mandela That Inspired This Poem:
1)  After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.
2)  Real leaders must be ready to sacrifice …
