Warning to Christians

This is only for Christians. If you are not a Christian, then it will not mean anything to you. This message is only for those who believe in Jesus Christ the Messiah. So many times Christians talk about grace but, they do not understand it. Grace does not mean ‘live in sin’, NO! Grace does … Continue reading

Christmas, holiday or pagan tradition?

In all my forty-something years, I have never thought twice about Christmas. I absolutely love the atmosphere around this time of the year. The air seems different from the rest of the year. Surely, this is a special time. Long ago when I was a young girl, my parents would exchange Christmas cards with our … Continue reading

Makandiwa mansion, oh so heavenly!

Before I go any further (to my Shona readers let me say, ‘ndisati ndaenda kumanhenga‘) I am not a daughter of Prophet Emmanuel Makandiwa at all but, I’ve learnt something from the Holy Book, ‘Thou shalt not judge,’ it says. So, I will not judge him neither do I judge ubaba Jacob Zuma. Kodwa, let … Continue reading

The best things in life are free, or are they?

I woke up to discover that #lobola is trending today. Some of the tweets are surprising though, they made me wonder, is lobola an African tradition, is it practiced by blacks only and what is its purpose? Where is its roots? Does it have anything to do with colour and culture? Where does the money … Continue reading

About idle minds

This morning, I was wondering how things went down in the Garden of Eden. I realised that it’s really about idle minds! I’ve asked myself many times, where was Adam when Eve was busy being cozy with Satan? This morning, I thought he must have been busy in the garden, “And the Lord took the … Continue reading

Things to consider during the covid-19 outbreak

When a person says, ‘God bless you’, have you ever wondered which god is this person talking about? Can a person who does not believe in God say, ‘God bless you’, meaning the real God, or maybe meaning his god? I’m just wondering. ‘God bless you’, is that the speaker’s God or the hearer’s God? … Continue reading

How To Get Over Hurt And Pains

Article written by Precious Sogunro There’s one strong weapon used to eliminate a man, it’s the absence of joy and happiness replaced with the presence of pain and bitterness. This is so strong it evolves with time and becomes even much stronger and present in the life and daily basis of a person if not treated … Continue reading

He made a way

To kill or not to kill

A pleasant afternoon from South Africa. The weather is excruciatingly hot. But, I don’t know if I should be grateful or I should wish I was in the snow in England. Today I have a question for you. Are you using your tongue to give life or to kill? Proverbs 18: 21 Death and life … Continue reading

The secret to a happy and healthy marriage

Right from beginning, it was never about intimacy. Adam did not go to God and had a chat about how he needed a woman to satisfy his manly desires. It was never about sx. There comes a time when sx is not fun anymore, when there are other people involved in the marriage who also … Continue reading

Help needed

Recently, I had an amazing discussion with one man of God, a friend of mine, Pastor Boikie. The good Pastor opened my eyes to some things that I have never thought of, in my entire life. He started his talk with Genesis 2:18 which says, ‘And the Lord God said, It is not good that … Continue reading

God the whaaaaaat?!

Written by G.P, correspondent. That’s my initial reaction when I heard that statement, ‘god the mother’. My mind went topsy-turvy, what the heck! I ran to my Bible, I mean, one of my Bibles and dug in. I do hope you also have a Bible, I mean a hard copy of the Holy Book. I’ll … Continue reading
