Lol I hope you guys find the picture funny because I sure did.
People of Blogsville, how una dey? Long time no speak, I have a funny story to share with you all. So I was invited to a 'baby shower' by my Sierra Leonean friend, her aunty was the one with child. So last night I completely forgot about the baby shower, and it was while I was at my friend's house that my friend who was suppose to take me there called me and asked me if I was ready. I told him that I was, mind you I had worn my 'Truth Don Die' shirt lol so we headed off to the baby shower party and all. Omo when I reached there, come and see how people where giving me strange looks and ish, me I come dey wonder maybe it's because am Nigerian and they are all from Sierra Leone. Afterall I've heard that other africans tend to hate on Nigerians because we got that extra swag *winks* hehe lol. Anywayz, as I was there and getting all these strange looks people where now coming up to me and saying 'Na who kill ruth? Ruth don die? How she die? As in people were getting sad and ish, so finally I asked them who in God's name was Ruth? My friend now told me that Ruth was the name of the woman who was giving birth to the baby. The woman who's party I had come to, and do you know why they were asking me 'Na who kill Ruth'?? Because my jacket was covering the 'T' in my 'Truth Don Die' shirt so all this while everybody was reading 'Ruth Don Die'. I swear una for come see the kind laugh wey I laugh, because only God knows the kind of uproar I had caused in that party. The Ruth self was not at the party, as she had given birth in the hospital that night, so you can imagine people where probably thinking I was the bearer of bad news.
The whole night turned into one jokefest for me, from everywhere people would come to see what my shirt said and ask why my shirt said 'Ruth don die'. When I now opened my jacket to reveal the T you would see the sad expression on their face change to outright amusement. Chai it was to funny guys, I can't shout but I can whisper.
Anywayz, now unto a serious topic. The other day I was at my friend's house and he asked me to watch something. This baby who had been in a Coma had woken up in a church after they had prayed extensively for her, so basically it was a miracle and ish. So as I was watching these thing, I was very skeptical, afterall this is not the first 'supposed Miracle in Church' video I had seen yet I had not been convinced. But after I finished watching the video, instead of normally shrugging it off like I would I started questioning myself. Remember in my older post 'Blogsville Peeps Come Hither' I had said something about how most religious people are quick to rush to the conclusion that something was a miracle without looking for other explanations to explain it. Well what happens, when the only explanation is a 'Miracle'?? Would I be able to accept it without being skeptical about it? I then realised that I 'don fall my own hand' because all this while I had been focusing on 'other explanations to unnatural events' but I had never thought about what then happens if the only explanation is a - Miracle?? Who then should it be attributed to??
Now most people would say, DUHHH!! attribute it to God of cause. But see I believe that if one would attribute it to God, one should maintain the possibility that it could be attributed to the devil as well.
I know somepeople are of the habit of believing that every good thing comes from God and every bad thing comes from the devil. But the bible itself puts rubbish to such a theory, afterall God did and has done bad things in the bible and if you need examples I shall gladly provide them. Now that I have ascertained that God is capable of doing good as well as bad, does it not stand to reason that Devil himself is capable of doing good as well as doing bad??
So then, as a rationale man I would say that the glory for a miracle should be split 50/50. Afterall it is a possibility that both God and the devil could have healed that baby from her Coma.
