Corruption, Religion and Societal Values

THIS paper is not to dwell on the purely academic, philosophical, sociological, economic, psychological aspects of the topic but it is an attempt to bring to the fore the fact that Corruption, loss of religious and societal values are symptomatic of a breakdown or putrefaction of spiritual, moral, social and reli-gious values as directed by Jehovah, the Creator and designer of the human mind. It will also point out or proffer solutions based on the present circumstan-ces of this evil world and her systems or measures and finally put it on record that the ‘desire of all nations’, the New Jerusalem, and God’s Kingdom, remain the perfect, ordained, determined, and divinely designed condition or state or place where all these will be confined to the dust bin of history.

W.F Kumuyi At 75: As It Was On Day One…

If the world would have its way, Pastor William FolorunshoKumuyi at 75 should be the grand old man sitting by the fireside at night in a fenced house built for him by the Church. The young and the old would form a circle about the retired preacher, listening to great exploits of the man in his active days as an evangelist. At sunrise the following day, he would sit in a cane chair overlaid with soft cushion, reading the Bible and watching the world go by, waiting for the moon to announce the delivery of more tales of the past to anxious listeners.

God’s prophetic purpose for praise

God is a God of purpose. Everything He says has a meaning and He performs all that He says. God is who He says He is and will do what He says He will do. Some people think that when they are asked to praise God, all they need to do is to sing and dance. This is good but not good enough. Just singing and dancing is not the real purpose of praise. Until you and I have a good understanding of praise, we cannot reap its full benefits. In Amos 9: 11-12, the bible says “In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen and close up the breaches thereof: and I will raise up his ruins and I will build it as in the days of old: that they may possess the remnant of Edom and of all the heathen which are called by my name, saith the Lord that does this”.
