ORIGIN OF CHILDREN’S DAY

The Origin of Children’s Day can be traced back to the following:

In the year 1857, Rev Charles Leonard held a special service for children in his church at Chelsea, Massachester marking the beginning of Children’s day while in 1920 the Republic of Turkey became the first country to officially declare Children’s day a national holiday on April 23,in the year 1925,

The World Conference on child welfare in Geneva proclaimed International Children’s day on June 1 while in 1954 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the idea of Universal Children’s Day on November 20

In 1959 the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of the child on Nov 20,1959

Nigeria, as a nation set aside the 27th day of May of every year as Children’s day

With the above history,it is pertinent to know who a child is

A child is a human being between the stage of birth and puberty typically between the ages of 0 to 12

Children are vulnerable and dependent on adults for care, support and guidance. They are also curious, playful and constantly learning and developing physically , emotionally and cognitively

The United Nations Convention on the Right of the Child defines a child as every human being below age 18 years unless under the law applicable to the child, majority is attained earlier.

A child is important to a couple especially in the African context hence children are adored, celebrated, no wonder therefore , Nigeria as a nation set aside the 27th day of May every year to commemorate the dayhistorically, because our children is celebrated,

It is my understanding that children are like star’s, they shine in their unique ways

They hold future in their hands and it is our duty to nurture and protect their dreams.

It is the serious obligation for parents (Father,&Mother) to give their children instructionand correction that are necessary part of upbringing

Parent should be examples of good conductor caring more for their children’s general welfarism

Similarly, children are worth to our society and adequate care should be given to them if they are to be useful and productive for our nation, children who can feed for themselves, contribute meaningfully towards excellence development of our country, Nigeria

At this juncture, my candid advice for you is to be more responsive, dedicated, patriotism ,shun any act of behavior such as Cultism Hooliganism Robbery etc that can tarnish your family name and our country image both internally and externally, I wish all and sundry

Parent should also protect their children from ungodly influences and immoral companions that dominate the present world

Thanks and God bless you all,

Up children,up oyo,state ,up Nigeria

Thanks for listening.

A church wedding is just an owambe – Reno Omokri.

Published

You had a wedding in church. You did not have a marriage. What you did in church is not better than an owambe. It is not even necessary. A marriage is a family affair. That is why, in almost every country on Earth, marriage is under family law. Please assume I am lying age fact-check me.

No priest, pastor or reverend has ANY business with marriage. Once your family accepts the union, you are married. It is only the girl’s father that has authority to say, ‘I now pronounce you husband and wife’. Any church doing that is just an interloper. From there, you simply have to register it in a marriage registry.

A church marriage is just an uneconomical use of money. It is not unnecessary. The word church is even unknown to the original Scripture and Bible. I know that many of us, as Black people, are fond of reading one thing and understanding another. I am not saying that the word church is not in your English translation of the Bible. What I am telling you is that it is not in the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek Scriptures and Bible.

The actual Koine Greek word used is Ekklesia, which simply means gathering.

The word church is a European invention. It is from their culture. It has NOTHING to do with Yeshua, who never entered a church, cathedral, basilica, abbey, or any similar edifice throughout His life on Earth.

Yeshua (Jesus) worshipped at a synagogue and attended a marriage ceremony at a house. Yeshua (Jesus) was invited as a guest. He was not an officiating priest. There is nothing like an officiating priest. Any priest who officiates at a wedding is serving his church, not God. Read it yourself in John 2:2, which says:

“Yeshua himself and his disciples were invited to the wedding banquet.”

Your African traditional marriage is acceptable. It is not evil. It is not heathen or uncivilised. Marriage is part of the Fifth Commandment, to “Honour thy father and thy mother”. You honour them by marrying in their house and under their authority.

That is why Scripture in Genesis 24:67 says:

“Isaac brought her into his mother Sarah’s tent, and took Rebekah, and she became his wife.”

If your parents are dead, then you can marry in your own house, which is why Scripture says in 2 Samuel 11:27 that:

“David had her brought to his house, and she became his wife.”

Read Scripture and the Bible for yourself. Organised religion from Europe is not better than organised crime from the same Europe.

The Catholic, Anglican, and other European Churches have historically killed more people than the Italian and Sicilian Mafia. It is not even close.

But you will see their brainwashed, mind-controlled minions come under this post and regurgitate dogma (church doctrine) and philosophy in defence of those who programmed their minds.

Lyrics of ‘Nigeria We Hail Thee’

Lyrics of ‘Nigeria We Hail Thee’

Nigeria, we hail thee,

Our own dear native land,

Though tribe and tongue may differ,

In brotherhood, we stand,

Nigerians all, and proud to serve

Our sovereign Motherland.

Our flag shall be a symbol

That truth and justice reign,

In peace or battle honour’d,

And this we count as gain,

To hand on to our children

A banner without stain.

 

O God of all creation,

Grant this our one request,

Help us to build a nation

Where no man is oppressed,

And so with peace and plenty

Nigeria may be blessed.

Unlike the anthem we’re used to, this one seems shorter, and we can bet that the students in schools are already learning the new anthem. You should get on board too.
