MOSHOOD FAYEMIWO, Cameron, Texas, USA
Is soccer as it is known in non-American World, which is being glorified around the world a religion? Many born-again Christians will argue hoarse that there is nothing wrong in joining the rest of the people of the world in the frenzied ecstasy and worshipful glorification that soccer or football has become. But the Holy Spirit reveals that soccer is another religion of the world that has been fetishified by billions of souls on earth today.

Necessary Evil
Fr. PAT AMOBI CHUKWUMA
The love they had for each other died a sudden death. Initially the husband called the wife 'My Baby.' The wife used to call him 'Sweet Honey'. Today the Baby is dead.

The resurrection of June 12 and Buhari's place in the history of Nigeria!
YAHAYA BALOGUN, Arizona, USA
Whoever is doubtful of President Muhammadu Buhari's integrity, and his assured place in the history of Nigeria will be disingenuous to history. Whoever is also closing his eyes to Buhari's fallibility and shortcomings has a dotted mind with alternative facts and biases.

OKECHUKWU K. UKEGBU

Fr. PAT AMOBI CHUKWUMA
About two years ago, a promising young medical doctor known as Allwell was sitting comfortably at the back of his luxurious jeep driven by his driver. .. At the second Mainland Bridge, he instructed his driver to stop. ... Surprisingly, Dr Allwell opened the vehicle rear door and got down. Before his driver could know what was happening, he ran and jumped into the lagoon, fully dressed in his English suit.
Where are the Churches and Christians of Nigeria?
Rev. Fr. FRANCIS A. OBORJI, The Vatican
One major question dominated most of readers’ comments on my last article on the implications of the ‘President’s taking of oath of office, carrying a Sharia Islamic law bag and the OIC Islamization agenda in Nigeria.’ ... if anything happens today, the greater blame must go to us, churches and Christians of the country. This is because we allowed it to happen.

YOU WILL NOT UNDERSTAND (Mark Angel Comedy) (Episode 182)

Can I kill myself?
Fr. PAT AMOBI CHUKWUMA
Making a serious moral or physical mistake can lead one take his life. No one is above mistake. There is always a way forward. Judas made a moral mistake by betraying Jesus Christ. He could not bear it. He ended up hanging himself. Peter made the same mistake by denying Jesus. He realized his mistake. He wept and repented. Is there much difference between betrayal and denial?

YAHAYA BALOGUN, Arizona, USA
A widely beloved Buhari and his accentuated accent "za ozaa room", and his honest but craft dry jokes in times of national crisis has got him into more trouble more than any other Presidents in modern Nigerian history. But the man of integrity remains the political insignia for the continental African renaissance.
