How is your attitude towards God?

By attitude, I refer to your “settled way of thinking or feeling about something” or someone – in this case, God.

Is it important how you feel or think about God? Yes, it is.

That means your attitude towards God shows us your settled way of thinking and feeling about Him.

If it is that important, what then is the right attitude that should guide the way you think and feel about God? The answer to that question is the focal point of this post.

“Should I Remove This Baby?” A Real Life Question From Someone Contemplating An Abortion

In a Nigerian online forum, I joined in an interesting conversation initiated by a young man who got a lady pregnant out of wedlock. He and his partner were contemplating having an abortion but had not made up their minds about it. The man decided to seek useful advice from members of the forum.

Hear him:

“I have an issue bugging me and I need some serious advice because I have been very indecisive so far.

There is a lady I’m seeing. She came to my place a few weeks ago and we had sex, first with condoms and later without condoms… A few weeks later, she called to say she is pregnant [although I gave her money to buy a popular contraceptive drug]…

At this moment, we are considering removing the baby. While I have been very indecisive, she has agreed to go with whatever decision I take and has spoken to a doctor who will do [the abortion].

However, I am unsure as of this moment if I want to go on with this because even though I am done with [schooling], I do not think I have gotten to that point where I can shoulder more responsibilities… And I really do not know who to turn to when I am unable to provide for the both of them.

What do you guys think? Do I go on with this or just let the baby be?”

There goes the big question! Now lets talk about the answers.


As expected, a number of people commented to advise the young man. The pieces of advice came in different shades and colours. But they can be distilled into two:

  • Those who said the guy should carry on with the abortion plan; and
  • Those who advised against having an abortion.

In this post, I’m interested in the latter group. The reason is simple: Long time readers of this blog will have noticed that I’m pro-life.

It is no longer news that Microsoft founder Bill Gates is divorcing Melinda Gates, his wife of 27 years. Perhaps what is news is the unfolding reason for their divorce and the lessons we can learn from it.

Although we don’t have all the intricate details, various media sources have made sure we are not left in limbo with respect to the possible reasons the Gates gave for their divorce announcement.

While publicly announcing that they would be getting divorced, the Gates stated that, “We no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”

3 People In The Bible That Didn’t See Death

Everyone human being alive will die some day. As they say, “Death is the end of all men on earth.” But is it?

In the Bible, we have some people that either didn’t see physical death or defeated it. While I can find two people who didn’t die and who were never buried on earth, there was only one person who died but conquered the power of death forever.

  • Enoch didn’t die but God took him.
  • Elijah didn’t see death but he was taken up by a heavenly chariot.
  • Jesus saw death but He conquered it.

Jesus’ case is a bit different from that of Enoch and Elijah in that unlike Jesus, they both didn’t see death at all. But Jesus ‘saw’ death and He overcame it, eternally.

Let me take on each of the mentioned characters a little deeper.
