Pope Francis Suggest Alteration of Our Lord's Prayer

Pope Francis

Pope Francis urged the Roman Catholics to alter the Lord's prayer popularly know as 'Our Father'. During a televised interview on Wednesday,the Pope said the phrase " “lead us not into temptation,” suggests that God leads us to sin and it should be changed to “do not let us fall into temptation,” . According to Reuters;

“That is not a good translation,” the pope said. The phrase “do not let us fall into temptation,” which the Catholic Church in France has previously decided to use, would be a more appropriate alternative and should be used around the globe, Francis said.

“I am the one who falls. It’s not him pushing me into temptation to then see how I have fallen,” he continued. “A father doesn’t do that, a father helps you to get up immediately. It’s Satan who leads us into temptation, that’s his department.”

It's a good call, i love it.

Former Archbishop Olubunmi Okojie Breaks His Silence On Pastor Chris Okotie.

Former archbishop of Lagos state, Anthony Olubunmi Okogie has finally replied Chris Okotie on his statement that ‘All Catholics will go to hell’. Here is what he told Punch;

“It is always good to talk on what you know, not on what you do not know. The problem we have today is that a lot of people put their mouth in what does not concern them because they want people to know that they too are there; that they can be reckoned with.
“I don’t think that is the way to do things, no. I think the best thing is to always put your mouth where God puts it, if you don’t want to be disgraced.”

Well said. Sometimes i wonder how a "man of God" like Okotie thinks or the kind of Bible he reads.

Popular Soap Actress Vivian Metchie On Her Conversion To Islam.

Vivian Metchie,former actress,popularly known for her role in the 90's soap candle light,mother of four and recently divorced speaks to Yes magazine on her decision to convert to Islamism;

"Yeah it is personal. I understand the Koran more than the bible. All of a sudden, the Christian confusion was driving me nuts. My dad was catholic, my mum was Deeper Life, I married someone in the Redeemed Church and then all of a sudden, the few religions had something bad to say about each other. I just couldn't take it anymore. A friend of mine who is close to me said that once you are grounded on the word, it wont be confusing. Unfortunately, maybe I wasn't grounded in the word, but I still could see what I see. But in my quest and study and research, I don't know: I was probably looking for peace. Yeah! That was what I was looking for and I found it in the Koran".
Her Muslim name as Fareedah. 

Meet The World First Openly Gay Iman.

Wow,the Muslims will have a filled day with this one.Oh My!
 Imam Daayiee Abdulah, the only openly gay Imam in America & possibly the world, was born and raised a Baptist Christian faithful in Detroit but converted to Islam while studying in China. Upon his conversion, he noticed the spiritual gap lesbians, gays & transsexuals in the Islamic faith had and decided to become an Imam so as to provide an ideal Islamic support for them, he says;
"Being an openly gay imam and having been identified as such, I do get a lot of feedback and also kickback, but that's OK,” he said. “I think that when people are unfamiliar with things, they tend to have an emotional knee-jerk reaction to it. Sometimes necessity is the mother of invention. And because of the necessity in our community, that's why I came into this particular role."
Abdulah, who says he told his parents he was gay at age 15, converted to Islam at the age of 33 and went on to study the religion in Egypt, Jordan and Syria. Asked what was his first spiritual act as an Imam, Abdulahi says it was the funeral for a gay Muslim who had died of AIDS.
