Amulen Winfred's 25th birthday party: Thanks to God for safely nurturing me.

Image
It was a beautiful afternoon, 28th, May, this year when we celebrated my one and only's birthday. She was bundling her 25 years of living. This lady told a story of how God had been part of her life and He was still gonna be part of her. Good friends of ours had come to celebrate with us. These included Muhawe Edson, Kibaba Wilberforce, Rukundo Agnes, Nabaasa Evanice, Jullie (My OB Mutolere SS), Mirriam Babirye (her young sister), Bizimana Amos, and of course God. It was beautiful. We ate, drunk and danced but mostly we made a lot of fun as we chatted our heads off. It was really marvelous. We thank all those who became part of us and we love you so much and wish you to always be part of us. Thanks. Some of that days pictures are below but many more will be uploaded later. Enjoy the view.

Another Tip of avoiding cheating on your sweetheart: Learn home chores.

Henry Mutebe is another guy whose posts are nice here on Facebook. The first tip was given by him few days ago. It is carrying your lover's photo wherever you go. In his article, he made it clear that some kind of strength of remembrance may help you avoid cheating on your wife by constant look on her innocent face, maybe the child too. For those who follow me, i shared that article few days ago. Thanks to Henry Mutebe.

Don’t be too needy, you may lose your freedom: The worst price for the help you get

Image
For those who follow my writings, you must have read my action-reward philosophy, a great ex-positional article I did a lot of months ago. In that exposition, we agreed that there is never such an action without an attached reward. Every action we do whether good or bad is influenced by the reward attached onto it. If a person helps you, he is actually helping himself more than you. There is no sin in this, it is nature. The sin arises if the reward we force on an action is not the natural reward for that specific action. In Adam Smith’s writings as cited by President Museveni, Adam writes, “It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner but from their regard for their own interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love”. Okay, so, in simple terms, the help that people give you has a reward (a pay in exchange either from you directly, indirectly or from some other source). And the worst pay for your help…

The true religion, The true marks of Holy spirit: Not necessarily speaking in Tongues.

Image
Okay, these days things are hot in churches. Some pastors believe that the devils can only be chased by speaking against them so loudly. I have heard some of my friends claiming a spirit-filled pastor who prays and people fall down, cry and eh shout. We all have heard the preaching of Holy spirit manifesting in tongues. And eh if you cannot speak in tongues, you do not have Him!!! Some churches here in Uganda have taken it a step farther, the word of God, the preaching, the announcements and every other activity in the church is accompanied by loud voices of instruments, whistles, shouting of people to their loudest and eh you know it all. But now we wonder, really is that the true manifestation of Holy spirit?? Is it true that our body behaviors in voice, actions, and signs can increase the presence of God in a place??

My take on allegiance

Image
This movie is nice, well set and organized. It really fits in the list of Series every CEO must watch. The movie brings in the picture of another Korean movie, The SPY. In both movies, the mother was once a spy for intruders of her country( Russia for allegiance and North Korea for The spy). As you all know things of love, this mother falls in love with an innocent man and both bring an innocent child into this world. The mother retires from her duties and tries to find life with her husband and child( New life).

The 2 available means of bringing people to Christ: Threats and cherishing.

Image
Okay, we have all come across this. A pastor walks up the stage and reads verses in the bible of God burning down the disobedient cities, how He struck king Herod, how He sent Nebuchadnezzar to live with animals, how He destroyed Nineveh, Egypt, or even Judah. And then how the eternal burning of sinners in hell is too painful to express in words. He goes ahead and narrates how unfaithful men and women have died of diarrhea due to AIDS and how the thief was shot to death last night. People, listen very carefully, "The Lord's axe is on your heads waiting to cut you into pieces if you do not accept Jesus"

SHALL THERE BE SEX IN HEAVEN? What shall we do in heaven?

Image
To mankind, there is no any other higher degree of pleasure and happiness than sex. Actually, it is the sacred of romance that can easily portray what we are going to explore now. According to 'The game of thrones', there is no any other heaven known to man than sex. Oh no, this is not entirely true but i am sure you are getting the picture. Sex is the true definition and measure of pleasure a man can ever have (Man in this context means both a man or a woman)The above question is easy than any of us expected. We have already got the knowledge that heaven is a restored life in a newly restored universe. We have seen that it is the time and place when we shall be living in full communion with our father, our God. So let us examine what exactly will happen.The bible is very clear that the only work we shall do is worship and serve the Lord (Matthew 4:10, Rev 22:3). But these words here mean a lot of things. What is worship? The word worship is very much different from praise. w…

Understanding Ourselves, God and Heaven part 3

Image
Okay, welcome back. The last time we shared about this new message, we looked at who God is and how He continuously live with us participating in every story of man and other creation. Today, we are going to understand what heaven is, where heaven is, what should be done in heaven and how are we gonna get there. AMASO KURUTIMBE, KATANDIKA BUTANDITSI. What is heaven? Where is heaven? How do we go there? And what shall we do there? All these are answered simply for your good.

Understanding ourselves, God, and Heaven part 2

Image
Yesterday, we understood who we are from the first principles. And while we do know that, we agreed that we have never attained the whole of who we are for the world is now corrupt. Today, we are looking at part 2 of the great message: Who is God? Aaaah God is not that hard to understand as so many people confess, he is the easiest. Of course, this holds true unless you are the pharisee of our time trying to understand Him by digging a lot of law books, You cannot understand God from books and reading so high. Anyway, let us explore our lesson today.

The greatest desire of a woman: Where the curse rests

Image
While a man's pride is in strength and work as we earlier discussed, a woman whole heart is implanted in relationships. Relationships is all that matters to a woman and it is okay, it is what should matter to her. You see, that is what a woman was made for. And when she, just as a man fell short of God's glory, it is what she lost. Listen, "I will cause you to have much trouble when you are pregnant... You will desire your husband so much but he will rule over you". Are we together? Of course, this curse is general and should be understood in a stretched way or those single ladies out there escape the curse. But oh no, it is for all women: Incomplete relationships and with so much troubles in relating.

The greatest desire of man: Where the curse rests.

Image
I have been reading a lot this month and so I have discovered my life again. I already told you that there is life in reading, you speak to great minds in days and get to know what they learnt in years. Anyway, our inspiration is traced back to the book of Genesis 3:17-19. Following the great sin of man (Remember, our desires can lead us to the great trouble if not well treated or satisfied), God was out to check on us as He always did. This time we were no where to be seen, why? Because we had allowed our desires not to be met in the right and eternal way and thus driven off the track by the greater force of desires (Remember, your desires cannot be erased. You either meet them rightly or they find their own way to get fulfilled and when they do, you won’t like it). What is the point today?

Understanding ourselves, God and Heaven part 1

Image
For those who follow my writings, we already agreed that listening to ourselves, others, and our God, are the 3 sure means of discovering who we are. In those 3 parts, we found out that all the means of exploring our lives can be met. However, we concluded that God is the one who participates in any of the means for our self discovery. Today, we have started a series of great literature as we answer most of our profound questions. Part one of this, Who are we???? If you followed the above 3 ways, what exactly did you find out about yourself? But then, what should be the truth about you? Follow closely.

Jeremiah Chapter 48: It is a terrible mistake to make fun of someone falling; it is a clear ticket for you to the same or even worse falling. Never do it

Image
Oh friends, once again we are back with our daily bible study after this long pause. I thank you so much for your patience and waiting. Okay, our today’s chapter still focuses on God’s chronicles of punishing a nation by nation for their disobedience. It might actually sound as if God is all that rude and judgmental in these chapters but I hope we shall be able to read another God’s heart, the important side of Him-His grace. We open the chapter with a citation of how powerful God is (verse 1). In other words, this introduction is assuring us that things happen according to His will and no one can stop His purposes.

Why you should ignore some of your family’s financial problems and focus onto yours and yours alone

Friends, it also pains me that I am going to write these words, but I am unfortunate that the gift of letting the cat out of the bag for the benefit of many was placed on my shoulder. And since, just as prophet Jeremiah prophesying against his own people, I do not have choice, and then you must hear these words from me. Throw your stones at me for I would rather die after speaking a right word than living for a false hope as Diplomat (a rapper from Rwanda) sings.

The number one reason why you are not improving: You do not accept that you need it.

"What do you want"- Jesus of Nazareth
"A problem known is half way solved"

All the above quotes point to one simple truth: Unless we accept that we are badly off, then we won't improve. We were in a seminar and the topic was, " stopping alcoholism and smoking". These two behaviors are not easy to stop once started, you get addicted. For those who have ever suffered addiction of any kind, you know what i am saying: you just can't help it but do that thing over and over again no matter how hurtful it may be to you, your family or nation.
