Religion and the Dwindling Standard of Living


Opinion by: Sologidi Donatus

Prayer is not in the success equation. You don't become successful because you pray always.. Prayer is in the revelation equation. Decision making is in the success equation. It's not only about praying and worshipping God.. It's also about possessing an understanding of how things work. America and other developed nations have this understanding. ( cause and effect).. Prayer is the key no doubt, but know when to pray and when to put those petitions into action. Even the Bible says, faith without work is dead.. I wonder if Nigerians don't see this part. I learnt that a pastor blessed a house built by an eighteen year old boy in Lagos ( although, I can't ascertain the degree of validity ). Nobody asks where he got the money. They don't care to know your source of wealth any longer. So long you're bringing it, you're blessed!!!

So funny some people think witchcraft will end with prayers and casting and binding. If you don't know, know that it is a religion in its own called VOODOOISM or sometimes referred SORCERY.
Members sometimes fly. It is being used for only evil in our society today... Oyibo man witchcraft na better own.. Ours is just to suffer our fellow being. We become puppets to their innovations then shout "signs of the end time"" biko can't we equally invent something that will make them say "signs of the end time too"?... Neocolonialism is even the worst form of colonialism. I'm sure we wouldn't be this way if we were still under the shackles of colonialism... We need a reawakening of our conscience and view towards certain issues of life.
You can't go to school and still hold firmly the anachronistic philosophies which hitherto have been your guiding principles or have a frozen reality about life.
The world today needs people with creative ideas and innovations and not those with the best grades.
We are seriously being placed at a disadvantaged end and our leaders ain't helping us. The opportunities our counterparts have are highly unique compared to ours. We learn under the scorching sun.. No internet connection, even if there is, the reception is appalling.
A problem the country faces today is when solutions are being preferred to enduring challenges, instead of looking and analysing it we scrutinise where the solution giver is coming from. Is he a Southerner? Northerner?. Is he a Christian or Muslim?. A PDP adherent or APC loyalist.
The government and society frown at lecturers who collect bribe from students. Why wouldn't they when they are being paid peanuts as salaries? I do not in any way support it albeit. Even the so called peanuts ain't even paid complete or sometimes owed. Whereas people who drive exotic cars and sometimes engage in Mike Tysonian practices in our hallowed law chambers are being paid whooping millions of naira. They have wardrobe allowance, travel allowance, sick allowance even death allowance...
Our leaders can't continue to grant audience to only arm carrying groups. Those who don't ain't fools!!!
Is it high time we stopped 'existing' and started 'living'
Nigeria... Obomoo.
