Coronavirus, Church and Christ

When a suffering or disaster like the current COVID-19 occurs, it is common for people to ask who is responsible? Questions like these could be asked. Did a person or people sin?

Change of fortune

As a person of faith, I believe it is possible for my country, Nigeria to become the envy of many nations just like many have prophesied. Who could have thought three months ago that African nations would turn the tables and impose travel restrictions against U.S, Europe and China to stave off coronavirus.  So, If as Africans, we humble ourselves ...

This type of love is higher than loving others like ourselves. This is revolutionary. Christ expects more. He wants us to love sacrificially ... Read More »
