    TRANSFORMED BY TROUBLE

    For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. 2 Cor. 4:17 (NIV) It is the fire of suffering that brings forth the gold of godliness. – Madame Guyon God has a purpose behind every problem. He uses circumstances to develop our character. In fact, he depends more on circumstances to make us like Jesus than he depends on our reading the Bible. The reason is obvious: you face circumstances twenty-four hours a day. Jesus warned us that we would have problems in the world (John 16:33). No one is immune to pain or insulated from suffering, and no one gets…

    WHY MAJORITY OF ELEME INDIGENES AND RESIDENTS ARE NOT FIGHTING CULTISM

    Silent Majority When the media are filled with news of bloodshed and violence at the hands of cultists, it is easy to forget that these cultists are but a minute percentage of the Eleme community. That is because the majority of the indigenes and residents of Eleme fail to speak out effectively against the cultists and their nefarious activities.  But, their hearts are troubled day and night when they see or hear the news of bloodbaths and violence across Eleme land. The good news is that this Silent Majority does not supply new members for the cult groups. They usually want to live in peace with themselves and with others.…

    THE IMPORTANCE OF TIME

    “Redeeming the time, because the days are evil” Ephesians 5:16 T he poorest man on earth is not the man without money but the one who places no value on time. Time is money.

One of the chief principle is the principle of time and its management. Once that is out of order, many other things will be out of place. Time is an equal commodity which comes to both the rich and the poor. There is no variation as to what amount of it is…

    I8 Perpetual Sins of the Eleme Man – Peter Nwafor

    As we conclude this eventful year, 2018, I have taken the pain and liberty to analyze and pinpoint our dominating flaws, eighteen of them, which to me have held us back down perpetually. They are: 1. It has often been stated that an Eleme man’s greatest enemy is the Eleme man; When we bear thoughts of ill will and take actions dangerous in any way to our own flesh and blood, kith and kin! That is pure evil – not love. 2. Crusades are been held to pray for peace due to killings – quite commendable, but how about hosting a gathering so as to allow people speak their mind…
