As-salamu alaykum, Shalom, Peace be unto you Brethren and Sisters;
Greetings in the name of the most high God of Israel, the God of Isaac, Abraham, and Jacob who delivered the children of Israel from slavery in Egypt. I am referring to the One and True living God who sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ of Nazareth to die on the Cross of Calvary for the salvation of all humanity. The most merciful and creator of life who made heaven and earth.
Brethren and Sisters, this is a time of war. We must put on the armor of Jah and stand up for what we believe in. Never give up your pride even though situation may be difficult. Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do!–Robert H. Schuller (1983).
Listen to the words of God… “He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whosoever breaketh a hedge, a serpent shall bite him.” (Ecclesiastes 10:8, KJV) “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10).
Let us Pray and recite the psalm of David.
- The Lordis my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
- When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
- Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
- One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lordall the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.
- For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
- And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord.
- Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
- When thou sadist, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
- Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsakes me, O God of my salvation.
- When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lordwill take me up.
- Teach me thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
- Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
- I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lordin the land of the living.
- Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. (Psalm 27, KJV).
Brethren and Sisters believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and ye shall be saved. “If you confess with your mouth that Lord Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9, NKJV)
Government will not save you. Politicians will not save you. Atomic bomb will not save America but Jesus, the Son of the only True and Living God.
Refuting the “Born Gay” Argument
Don’t be deceived by the political correctness of today. They want us to believe that some humankind was “Born Gay.” Brethren and Sisters, this is not true, it is the work of the devil. The last attempt to depopulate God’s children and reduce the intellect of God’s creation to subhuman intellect.
God the creator of all humanity created every living and non-living things according to his divine order of creation. For living things, he created male and female, and non-living things, electrons and protons. Electrons are subatomic particle with negative charge and are found in all atoms and act as the primary carrier of electricity in solids. Protons are subatomic particle with a positive electric charge occurring in all atomic nuclei and equal in magnitude to that of an electron, but of opposite sign and also act as the primary carrier of electricity in solids. Note: the elements constituents in living organisms also composed of electrons and protons.
To further strengthen my argument against the inferior “Born Gay” theory, let us examine the biological properties of hermaphrodites. Hermaphrodites are living organism that has reproductive organs normally associated with both male and female sexes. Hermaphroditism is a normal condition found in most invertebrates such as earthworm, garden snails, etc., that enables a form of sexual reproduction in which both partners can act as either “female” or “male.”
Can a male reproductive organs act as both male and female? Or can a female reproductive organs act as both male and female? The answer is no!!!!!!!!! A transgender male or female does not have the ability to procreate or reproduce as Hermaphrodites. Therefore, scientifically, philosophically, logically, or literally, the argument that “you can be born Gay” is a false and erroneous argument that has no place on the table of logical and scientific discuss, and must be finally and permanently discredited and abandoned. It must be replaced with a common sense scientific and logical arguments that support the doctrine of God’s creation.
Defending the Sacred Treaties of our Ancestors
Brethren and Sisters, we have superior argument because we serve a supreme God. By reading his words, praying, and seeking his wisdom, we can effectively crush the inferior “Born Gay” argument or ideology. In order to effectively arm ourselves; 1) We must sanctify our bodies and pray for God’s wisdom, understanding and guidance. 2) We must turn off the TV, open and study the Holy Bible. 3) Read the Holy Bible daily prayerfully . 4) Formulate an argument based on the scripture, and 5) Go out and defend the treaties of our ancestors and win souls for Christ. “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” Amen (Matthew 28:19-20).
Standing up for what we Believe in?
We can no longer standby and be salient while the minority impose their values on the majority. The teaching of Gay culture in public schools in America is unacceptable. The ultimate goal is to desensitize our children and eventually turn them into Gay and lesbians. We want grand children! This is a cultural war confronting us. We can no longer allow ourselves to be deceived by the so-called “political correctness politicians” in Washington who only seek the interest(s) of big corporations. This is a Holy War, we must win if not, our generation would be extinct. We have a sacred duty to win this war. We owe it to posterity to win and we must win! This is a war between good and evil! We believe in the philosophy of good over evil. At the end, good shall overcome evil! So What is good? What is evil? What is the standard that teaches us the difference? If it is left up to the individual then there can be no law at all! Chaos will be the result! The Original standard was given to us by God Himself in the form of the Holy Bible! Our founders studied the Scriptures when they were forming the Constitution and laws that would govern this country!
Therefore, we must study the Holy Bible with all our might and intellect so that we can be prepared to defend the treaties of our ancestors scientifically, philosophically, ideologically and logically. So, what is the Holy Grail of this sacred treaty of our ancestors? The Holy Grail of the sacred treaty of our ancestors is Marriage—Biblically defined as a sacred harmonious and loving relationship between a man and a woman. “Therefore, shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24, KJV). God, the creator of all humanity, ordained marriage.
Hence, same-sex marriage is not true marriage as defined by the Holy Bible, but a mere social commitment between two mature individuals. To simply put it, same-sex marriage is not marriage as defined by God the creator.
We have no problem with Gay or Lesbian couples themselves; our problem is with the attempt to redefine marriage, the Almighty God’s sacred institution. And, for this cause, we stand ready to fight to the end!
The same-sex marriage movement has metamorphosed over the past decade and elevated to the same status as the civil rights movement in order to win the sympathy of black and minority populations, as well as the human rights community. The outcome has been a grotesque attempt to undermine the traditional marriage values in our schools, work places, religious institutions and society as a whole.
In retrospect, the civil rights movement struggle was about racial equality and not about choice. Anemone L. Robert defined race in his 2011 work title “Race and biological diversity in humans”. Race and Human Diversity: A Bicultural Approach, as a social construct, “a group of people who share similar and distinct physical characteristics.” Segal A. Daniel, an anthropologist at the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland 1991 work title “The European’: Allegories of Racial Purity,” described race as a genetically differentiated human populations defined by phenotype.
The civil rights movement was a struggle against racial discrimination. No one has the ability to decide whether he or she wanted to be born white, brown, black, yellow or Asian. Our race was predetermined by our creator, God. Hence, you cannot punish someone for something beyond their control. We have no control over the election of our race. For this reason, it is immoral and evil to punish anyone for his/her race.
On the contrary, the question of Gay and Lesbians is not genetic, but a question of choice. They made a conscientious determination to be Gay and Lesbians. We must take responsibility for the choices we make. Why should people be punished for Cannabis possession and at the same time grant free pass to people who conscientiously decide to sleep with same-sex? This is travesty of justice and the deep and shameful hypocrisy of our criminal justice system in America.
Not too long ago, a group of unelected judges on the supreme court bench anointed the fraudulent “Born Gay” argument and elevated the same-sex marriage movement argument to that of the civil rights movement struggle for racial equality. It is disingenuous to equate same-sex marriage causes to that of the civil rights movement because both struggles are different in nature and style.
The civil rights movement was about genetic equality, but the Gay rights movement is about imposing selfish individual sexual orientation on others. The civil rights movement was led by mostly men of deep faith while the Gay rights movement leadership is dominated by people who are nonreligious, anti-faith, often pagans and non-believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
Brethren and Sisters, the Gay and Lesbian movement is fighting to impose their choice on everyone, while the civil rights moment was a legitimate struggle for genetic rights, which the victims have no part to do with the decisions. We were born black and punished for being black. Homosexuals were born straight and decided to become homosexuals. It is a matter of choice which should be respected, but not imposed on others. The aggressive attempt by some in the Gay and lesbian community to blackmail anyone who disagrees with the Gay culture is unacceptable and must be stopped by all people of faith.
The Owner’s Manual or Instructional Manual for Human Life
All things made by man have an owner’s manual or instructional manual. An owner’s manual is an instructional book or booklet that is supplied with almost all technologically advanced consumer products such as vehicles, home appliances, computer peripherals, etc. Information contained in the owner’s manual typically includes safety instructions; assembly instructions; installation instructions; setup instructions, instructions for use; programming instructions; programmable calculators; maintenance instructions; troubleshooting instructions; service locations; regulatory code compliance information; product technical specifications; warranty information, etc.
If mankind created by the Almighty God has the intellect to write owner’s manual or instructional manual for his creation then, what about the Almighty God himself? Don’t you think the Almighty God, the Creator of all humanity has the ability to write owner’s manual or instructional manual for his creation too? Yes, God does! Unlike mankind owner’s manual or instructional manual which is limited to a specific product or brand of products, God, the Almighty owner’s manual or instructional manual for his creation is universal and the name is the Holy Bible.
The Holy Bible has no limit, it is the Word of the True and Living God the Creator of all humanity passed down unto mankind from generation to generations. The Holy Bible is the owner’s manual or instructional manual for human life. The Holy Bible contains an infinite body of knowledge covering all subjects relating to human life. As it is written, “all scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2 Timothy 3:16-17, KJV).
Despite the creation and all that God has given humankind, there are some who still doubt the existence of God and the divinity of the Holy Bible. I will scientifically, philosophically, and logically prove the deity of God in later article. Brethren and Sisters, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the Holy is understanding (Proverbs 9:10, KJV).
Accepting the Gaye Community
Nevertheless Brethren and Sisters, while we perform our sacred duty in faithfully defending our values and the treaties of our ancestors, we must embrace the gay community with love, affection, and dignity. Being a Gay does not disqualify someone from serving his or her beloved country. Being a Gay does not make someone subhuman. Being a Gay is a conscious choice and not a genetic one therefore, we must respect the choices of other people. You cannot use public office to impose your religious values, nor your cultural values on others.
We must respect everyone and treat everyone as we would like to be treated. As it is written, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”( Matthew 22:37-40,KJV).
Brethren and Sisters, we have a sacred moral, spiritual and religious duty to embrace the love of God in our hearts, mind, body, and soul. And above all, Brethren and Sisters, we are all creatures of the one and only True Living God Almighty through Jesus Christ our Lord. Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” (Genesis 1:26).
Members of the Gay and Lesbian community are not animals but images of God like straight people therefore, they are our brothers and sisters. We must love them. “Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen ( 1 John 4:20). Amen!!!!!

We cannot divide Nimba. The idea of dividing Nimba County is a crazy, unpatriotic, and satanic one. Those who are advocating for the division of Nimba do not love Nimba. They are arch enemies of Nimba.
The case of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (1943–1992 and Federal Republic of Yugoslavia(1992–2003) worth discussing in this context. After the collapsed of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) 1922–1991, the former soviet client states became the prey for NATO expansion in the Baltic in an attempt to minimize Russia’s influence. Yugoslavia and other former USSR states became a victim. Yugoslavia was Balkanized and transformed into splintered NATO client states. These states are basically powerless and dependent on NATO for security. Do you want Nimba to become powerless like Serbia, Montenegro, Kosovo and others?
Another example, Grand Gedeh County was divided into two counties during the demonic rule of convicted war criminal, Charles Taylor. Taylor allies from Grand Gedeh County including Peter Fineboy, Isaac W.Nyenabo, Zoe Pennue, Conmany Wesseh and other naïve and short sighted citizens from Grand Gedeh and River Gee mischievously worked with Taylor to destroy their once united, loving, vibrant and powerful county.
Today, Grand Grand County has become one of the least developed and under populated county. Most of their leaders have reduced themselves to the Sirleaf praise singing choir members while Madam Sirleaf vindictively prosecute their compatriots. The case of the late General Julu and others. The case of the 18 Grand Gedehians immorally convicted.
How can you have alleged war and economic criminals in the presidency and on the Supreme Court bench in person of Kabineh Ja’neh to prosecute people for treason? Sirleaf and Ja’neh should be tried first for the death of an estimated 300,000 Liberians killed in cold blood. Instead of establishing a war crime court to prosecute alleged war and economic criminals, Sirleaf and Ja’neh are shamelessly prosecuting weak and powerless people of Gedeh for treason. OH!!! what a disgrace to justice! The kangaroo process that led to the conviction of the 18 sons of Grand Gedeh is a travesty of Justice and needs to be reversed immediately!
Do you want Nimba to be like Grand Gedeh? We will fight to maintain Nimba unity. Our union makes us the strongest county in Liberia. The most populous county next to Montserrado. We will not accept the balkanization of Nimba!
The fundamental problem facing Liberia is not violence, corruption, poverty, nor the lack of knowledge and political will, but the inherent culture of impunity. Until we confront this virus like the Ebola virus, Liberia will not know peace. Madam Sirleaf knows this very well but, it is to her benefit to keep our country in the state of national calamity so as to project herself as the mother of peace.
Our country is declining and slowly dying from the impunity virus. No one has been held accountable for the horrific crimes committed in Liberia during the civil war. The only guarantor of the relative peace we are currently enjoying in Liberia is the UN peace keeping mission. The recent violence in Ganja is a clear testimony that Liberia is sitting on a time bomb. Children born during the course of the war only know violence. They see extremely violent men and women like Prince Johnson, Urey, Kromah, and others prosper while their victims continue to suffer in abject poverty. We must institute the war crime court ASAP. Please join me and other patriotic Liberians in fighting for war crimes court in Liberia.
