Killings all in the name of God's directives

10 October 2013, 09:36 Jibunor George Chuks

Nigeria now, records unfortunate killings every now and then. Just today I was watching on CNN they were able to bring a very touching story about North Korea.

The story they shared could be touching to some human beings on the planet that still have heart and mind! Reasons, because most people in the world now have really lost their minds on where their fellow humans are.

In the story shared by CNN, North Korea is considered as the most worst place to live in now in the world: why because survival is hard compared to other countries. An average person living there, that does all their best to live above poverty level hardly achieves it but rather falls speedily into the poverty level because of the living conditions in the country.

Everyone is trying so hard to live in other for greener pasture at all cost. An old man from Lebanon was crying on the news over his son and grand children that fled from Lebanon to Austria, all because of killings and hardships! Guess what he said? He said: “Even though I know that my children will die some day, yes, but I prefer them to have a peaceful death somewhere else, where there is no bombings, killings and hardship, it will be better for me."

A word of an old man, that have lived and see that there is no gain in killing people that you can not create. Now back to Nigeria. We share most of this things if not like 85% of it in Nigeria as of today. People have turn themselves into demons by brutally killing others, claiming God asked them to do so, if you so much believe in that your God as you claimed that you are worshiping.

That He can answer and do miracles when you are sick, traveling, poor, and other things you believe He could do. Why then do you not think that He can fight for Himself, if anyone breaks His Laws and commandment by not worshiping Him? Oh yes, He asked you to kill and destroy what you can not create. Listen to yourself, wages of sin is death and everyone must die one day or the other. Some kill to be in power, others to make money, others religious killings, what for? When you that kills must die too. God will forgive sins that He can forgive, but sins of lies against Him, I am not sure of. So, watch what you do or say about Him, all in the name of carrying out His tasks.

Nigeria is a great country, but if care is not taken, things may fall apart like just as the two countries I earlier mentioned, where people can no longer survive in and everyone wanting to live at all cost. Every blessed day, we record killings of all sorts. Someone wrote before: “We are Giant of Africa, but now, we have used our hand and remove the alphabet GI, leaving ANT, which means ant of Africa. Could this be true? I hope it's not.
