This blog contains some results of my findings and personal experiences since 2001 when I began to research on belief systems. When I came to know the Lord, some Christian folks thought I was “weird” for studying about things that were then considered as “negative” or unhealthy curiosity, but I didn’t give up my investigations. Through some experiences of life, I began to gain some insights into the spiritual factors behind deceptive philosophies, cults, and the occult, and I am still learning.
When the social media emerged, I observed how the Christian Faith was attacked and misrepresented and false religions gained grounds. Through my interactions with many people (Christians and non-Christians alike), both online and in person, I observed some problems common to fellow African Christians:
(1) ignorance about cults and their method of gaining converts
(2) a passive, gullible disposition or lack of discernment in assessing what they hear and read- sometimes, even from “Christian” sources
(3) the inability (or refusal) of many Christians to defend the Faith or refute false teachings with facts or logic
(4) partial knowledge about some key Christian doctrines and ethics.
This blog is a way of addressing these problems. Its an avenue of giving answers and educating others; to challenge people to think outside the box and counter deceptions with the truth.
I am not a theologian, a scholar or a pastor. I am a young man who believes in the power of the pen to impact lives. I believe knowledge is like water, you can either bottle it up and be restricted or let it out and be refreshed. Education is not the filling of a vessel, but the kindling of a flame – Socrates.
