Leave Obinim alone… Jesus was “crazier”- says Obinim’s Servant

Published

on

The best part of the month has been used to troll Bishop Daniel Obinim, thanks to his animal transformations comment which went viral on social media.

One of Obinim’s servants, popularly called Obinim BA Onimuoyamfoo Baggio came to his rescue via his social media page and made the following remarks.

“LEAVE OBINIM ALONE, JESUS WAS CRAZIER.
If you have other more convincing reasons why you say Obinim is fake, maybe we can have another conversation, but if your only reason is because he stepped on a woman’s stomach (the woman wasn’t pregnant, it was a tumour), then I will disagree, because Jesus did crazier stuff.

 How about he spat thick saliva on the ground, mixed it with mud then slammed it on someone’s eyes; and instead of providing the person water to wash off the mud, he rather worsen the ordeal by sending him to a river that took a journey? If Jesus was a Man of God in town and did that today, I can predict your contemplation; “Oh he is fake, he is not a man of God, Jesus won’t do this ever, no wonder the bible says by their fruits we shall know them…”.What even baffles me more is that overly-used maxim; by their fruits we shall know them. What fruits? Do you identify fruits by deep spiritual discernment or by just mere physical, human and scientific analysis and observations? Ok, tell me what fruits you will categorise Dr Otabil if one day during Greater Works Conference he held a microphone and it turned into a huge snake? What will you say he is then? Fake? But do you know that’s exactly what Moses did? Was Moses fake then?

What I need Christians to understand is that, God is so enormously vast that it is too myopic to think of Him in such a streamlined manner, to a point we expect him to do things in a certain prejudiced pattern, GOD IS WEIRD AND SOMETIMES ILLOGICAL!

It is true that you can never end up believing every Man called by God, do you know why?

There’s a reason but explaining that in details will mean a complete digression from the subject in focus – when God calls a man he gives the man his own followers whose Spirits will bear witness with his calling, that is why it is so hard to convince an Obinim member that Pastor Chris, Dr Otabil or TD Jakes is a Man of God. Even amongst the “intellectuals” not everyone who enjoys Dr Otabil also enjoys Apostle Sam Koranche or even the anointed but controversial Archbishop!

It is just a clear case of the Greeks who preferred learning (intellectual and scholastic exploration and prowess) and the Jews who rather preferred miracles, signs and wonders (what the bible will call “many mighty works”). None of these two groups are wrong, just a difference and diversity that comes with the beauty and vastness of this one awesome omniscient!

Just to further iron out my point that it is not every genuine man of God that you can believe, remember that even in the bible some people believed John the Baptist rather than Jesus? John had to exert conscious efforts to persuade them that they should rather believe in Jesus!

If the polished and educated Preacher who is called to teach and impact knowledge and expand the learning of the Word is what appeals to you, that is fine, but don’t limit God to your experience and your ideal picture of who a man of God should be!

Otherwise, you will have campaigned against Jesus for spitting mud in people’s eyes and asked why couldn’t he just stretch forth his hand and command the eyes to open; Spiritual things are spiritual, they can not be fully taken to the university of common sense and argue that a semantic or certain methodology is too odd to belong to the God-realm.

Follow the one whose message you believe, and don’t become a familiar spirit who goes about drawing shallow conclusions about who God called and who he didn’t, most times you could be the one not even called yet…when you receive more revelation and more light, you will be sober and more careful to draw such sensitive conclusions.”

2022 BET Awards: Full List Of Winners

Published

on

The BET Awards were back and bigger than ever.

Taraji P. Henson returned as host, reprising her gig from last year, to lead the celebration of talent across music, television, film, and sports at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Sunday night.

Doja Cat led the pack with six nominations including album of the year, video of the year, and both Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and Best Female Hip Hop artist.

The human turned living frequency formerly/currently/potentially known as Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award with a starry lineup of friends paying tribute to the producer/artist, including Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Nas, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, the Lox, Bryson Tiller, and Faith Evans.

Lizzo opened the show, flute in hand, dressed as a glamorous disco ball to perform her single “About Damn Time.” Janelle Monáe then graced the stage, giving a special shout-out to “all the gays in the house” and giving a “f— you” to the Supreme Court, before presenting the first award for the night, Best Female R&B/Pop Artist to Jazmine Sullivan.

R&B queen Brandy made a surprise appearance, lending Jack Harlow a hand and — channeling her Queens emcee character — a few bars for his performance of “First Class.” Lil Wayne had previously snuck out to duet with Harlow. Speaking of surprises, Ye (né Kanye West) came out covered from head to toe, breathing heavily through a mask as he helped Babyface present Diddy the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“I was signed to Puff without him even knowing,” Ye said of his formative years, joking, “that statement is not legally binding.” Ye, feeling schticky, also joked that Diddy has inspired both his “life” and his “wife” choices.

“And here we are,” he said. “Thanks for that Puff.”
