SORRY

book-841171_1920

I’m sorry for the trust I betrayed

for the things that I say

for the attention that I crave 

for the way I behave 

 

I apologize that I gaze

at the beauty on your face 

I apologise for this phase

for the fullness of your lips I want to taste 

I apologise for your trust that I waste 

for your honesty I failed to appreciate 

 

im remorseful for the mistakes I’ve made 

for the games I played,

it was your touch I craved 

sorry for the lies and for visits I should’ve paid 

 

I’m sorry but I had to be a menace 

I’m sorry but I felt I had no place

I’m sorry for this cliche phrase 

but you’re still the missing puzzle in my maze

#LetsTalkFaith with @ugonnaugo

no thumb

For this month’s theme, we have been a busy bunch, asking people hard questions about faith and their personal beliefs. First up is Ugonna Obunike! 

  • What’s the point of religion?

It is to connect with higher power, that is to connect with God(The Highest power)

  • Is religion based on culture an individual was raised?

The cultural background of people usually has a large influence on their religion, like growing up in a Christian home, will most likely result in you becoming a Christian but this is not always the case. To an extent,  religion is based on the culture a person was raised in, but I cannot conclude that religion is based solely on culture because people can change their religion regardless of their culture

 

  • Do you believe one can be agnostic (Agnosticism is the view that the existence of God is impossible to be known or proven)?

Definitely! My reason is because the devil has blinded the eyes of those who do not believe in God , as it states in the Bible “But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.” ‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭4:3-4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ 

  • Does your spirituality depend on how often you go to your place of worship?

 
Not necessarily , because there are mere Church-goers, who only hear the Word of God but don’t do it, such a person will not grow spiritually because they only hear the Word but they don’t do the Word.  Your place of worship should not determine your spirituality, YOU SHOULD! You take responsibility for yourself , study the Word for yourself, do the Word yourself, live the Word of God yourself, this builds you spiritually, then go the Church to get that extra spiritual boost as God ordains in verses such as Matthew 18:20 and Colossians 3:16. Your spirituality cannot and should not depend on Church-going solely, or your Spirit will starve because it does not get enough spiritual food(The Word of God)

  • How do you get back into “spiritual shape” if you have fallen away from God?

You repent of your sins! You ask God for forgiveness, when you repent you acknowledge the wrong you did, and vow to change your ways. Then God forgives , and you start to walk with Him again, By His grace.

  • What is your view on believers picking and choosing parts of their religion to follow? 

I will be honest and nothing but honest with you, believers who do such, deceive themselves, as raw as it sounds its true. They deceive themselves! Look at this verse in 2nd Timothy  “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” ‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭NKJV‬‬. So you see when we pick and choose parts of Christianity to follow, we practically pick the rules of God we want to follow, not what God asked us to obey, we pick what we want to obey or what is comfortable for us to obey. Now you see, this is partial obedience, and partial obedience is disobedience as established in the Bible through the story of Saul; 1 Samuel 15. Partial obedience is also a rebellion against God. Do you really want to rebel against God ALL Mighty?
