God and Spirit in formality

27 February 2015, 13:31 Onyeji Dominic

Life is big mystery. That was what they said. I was with the wise in realism when they said it, adding that the world is stage. They said it in great wisdom and it gave me to understand that we are co-debaters in life; making drama and argument for good under the Sun. It is otherwise known as healthy conversation for mental brushing. We consider it vital because the wise were not drunk when they told us that iron sharpened iron. It means that argument is highly required if we truly want to make the world a better place for us in reality.

In actual fact, wise ones are not given to blind argument. One must have a solid base for cogency, buttressing and clarity. It is only a fool that comes out bold to sound like empty vessel in public. There must be erudition and standard measures upstairs to make one sound mature and great in wisdom.

Therefore, it is wrong for us to make baseless points at any given occasion. This is because every point in argument ought to have a root for defense and reference purpose. We must draw our facts from formality and decorum; taking our stands on information that are widely and generally acceptable to humanity. That was why I often make reference to Bible, and had to also refer us to Google, dictionary, Wikipedia and what have you.

I have to say all these because the people have been reading my numerous articles but majority of us does not seem to get it right due to misgiving, ignorance and sheepish mentality. They made comments and remarks which gave me to see that they lack the understanding in general; getting me wrong in many ways especially when they heard me talking about God and spirit in religion.

Come to think of it! What is God in formality? I mean how many of us have ever looked it up to know the formal definitions of God and spirit? One obvious thing is that books like Bible and dictionary were all written by men who worked with Muse in divinity. They were highly inspired by the gods and forces. I mean the writers talked about God and spirit in religious books, and the definitions were formally given by them in dictionary, Google, encyclopedia and what have you. They wrote the Bible in formality, and all the scriptural terms were equally defined and explained in formality to enable us get the understanding in great wisdom and decorum.

According to Sixth Edition of Oxford Dictionary, God is only used in religious setting. The term is not meant for us to use in the secular world. The usage is limited to people in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It means that religious books like Bible and Koran are not meant for use in places like school and home. It is only a big fool that reads and carries Bible or Koran outside religious environment.

The same thing goes to spirit. The formal definition shows that it has nothing to do with us in life. I mean it is impossible for the living to have dealing with spirit at any point in time. Insight revealed it, and the wise saw it that spirit is a formatted brain just like a deleted information from cell phone, computer and what have you. "One becomes a formatted brain (spirit) when one is death," said the wise in realism. It goes a long way to show that everything in religion is ironical in nature.

The holy books were wisely and formally written with irony to hide certain truths from fools who do not seem to know that nothing good comes easy in life. They failed to buy the truth and sale it not. That was why the writers and editors had to work hand in glove with irony to hide them in great wisdom.

Take for instance, Jesus told us that he is the light of world, and the writers of the Bible added that he is the way, the truth and the life. If I may ask! What is light in Bible? What is the way in religion? What is truth in the Word? What is life in the holy book? If we ask me, I will also ask us to go and buy my e-book titled, 70 RHETORICAL QUESTIONS FOR BIAFRA'S LIBERATION. It is the Gospel truth for us in 21st century - the jet age. I mean it is time for us discard those archaic and Godforsaken holy books called Bible and Koran. The change is here for us to experience the truth in my e-book a.k.a First Bible of Biafra (FBB) for good and positive renewal of minds in Biafra and Africa at large. "Buy the truth and sale it not," said Biafra in realism.
