  1. I totally agree with you. I am a young person and most of the times I find it hard to listen to a sermon say of 1 hour without getting distracted. Note taking helps me a lot as I at least listen to more than 3/4 of the summon. I also make sure I switch my phone off completely. This ensures that I do not get distracted easily. I also try to focus my thoughts to the sermon.

    Lucifer Movie

    I know it is weird but it is true. There is a movie, a series actually, called Lucifer. The first time I heard about it I told myself that the world was coming to an end. However, after reading a preview online about the movie, I realised that it had nothing to do with end times or even religion. It is an investigative movie. We, however, have the main character being immortal, has the ability to hypnotise others and purports to be the devil. Basically, the plot is that he comes to earth and sets up a bar. He is overwhelmed by the earthly joys and is not willing to go back to hell. He starts to help a detective in her investigative duties. At the end of the day, he falls in love and becomes mortal. I like to think that the producers wanted a title that would raise eyebrows, leading to a greater audience. Would you watch such a movie?
  3. I recently upgraded to Windows 7. I love everything about it so far. However, since last week, I could not connect to the Wifi.The wifi tab cannot go on either. I have looked on the internet for solutions but all have not worked. I am considering switching back to Windows 7 since I entirely depend on Wifi. Anyone with a similar case or a solution?
  4. Windows 7 will always be significant to me. I have used it throughout the years and I can say that it suited me perfectly. However, as they say, that nothing is good as a change, I recently upgraded to Windows 10. so far it is crispier and I love it .The graphics are rich and I can almost customise everything on my machine. It is also simple just like Windows 7 was.

    Advertisements

    I have been watching quite a number of Christian channels lately. One thing I have noticed though is that they do not have advertisements like the other channels. Is it a policy or it's just that companies do not see a promising audience in the Christian channels?

    What is a movie critic….really?

    l believe a good movie critic will always hold his stand. What would be the use of positive comments only? If there are certain elements in a movie that I did not like, I would vehemently put them on the table. This will enable the producers to check on them the next time they are producing another movie. I would not be rude or mean but I would put my observations in a polite way. What is ailing most industries is sugar coating by the fans. After all, the movie producers need honest critics.

    Stop Test-Driving Your Girlfriend

    I think to counter this, one should clearly understand dating and courtship. These two terms are not the same. When one has reached a marrying age, I believe they should start dating. Dating is simply taking a lady out with the intention of knowing her better. At this stage, a guy is free to take as many ladies as he pleases for dates. This is the step in which he gets to understand each. It is like the sieving process. He then identifies the lady who has good characters, who they relate to most issues and who is fun being with. The next step is courtship. This involves getting to know the selected lady more and knowing her family. Once you are in this step you are sure that this is the right woman for you. With time, wedding bells should sound. I believe if the two steps are executed accordingly, we will not have cases of 'test-driving' as @William put it.

    Tv Churches

    It has been a growing trend whereby we find Tv stations offering live church programs on Sundays. They broadcast for around 2 hours. This has made many Christians get lazy and opt to stay at home. I feel that this should not be the case since going to church I believe is more effective than watching on tv. Churches on the other hand who pay to be broadcasted on tv may defend themselves by saying that they are targeting those who cannot make to go church like the elderly or the sick in hospitals. This, however, has made healthy Christians boycott the church. Do you think that live church broadcasts are necessary?

    Drinking & Driving

    I normally tell those who drink and drive that the devil is playing with their lives. This is because it is risky, not only for you but also for others. There was this case of a driver who was drunk and was carrying many passengers. What happened is that he ended up causing a tragic accident and everybody perished. I would advice anyone drinking to always call a taxi when they are through. It is much safer. Another thing is that these days things have been simplified. You only need to have an app in your phone and the taxi will get you at the door step.

    Grammarly for Chrome - Firefox

    When I purchased a laptop earlier this year, the first software I installed was Grammarly. I am using the free version and I can confidently say that it has helped me improve my written English a lot. I am saving up on some cash and I hope to upgrade to the premium version. I believe this will give me more command of the queen's language. The good thing is that even with the free version, at the end of the week you get an analysis of your work. You get the words that you have a problem with the most. They tell you how many words you have written, how you are fairing with other writers and how to improve. I think that this is the best software around. None beats it.

    Prayer Partners

    2017, Kenya, Africa. There has been an emergence of a new crop of gospel artists in Kenya who have taken things too far. They wear recent trends, dye their hair, glorify money, their music is club bangers and their lifestyle is to be questioned. Anyway, it is only God who can judge. So, one of the artists has had a certain girl in all interviews. It reached a point and he was asked to at least give a light. He said that the girl was his prayer partner. That, I believe, was lame. This is because, after several weeks, he came out clean and said that it was his girlfriend. I think that being in a relationship is not a bad thing as a Christian. But, it should be according to the Bible's framework. It should be clean. Now everybody is saying that they have a prayer partner whenever they want to describe their girlfriends. I think the term here was misused.
  12. First of all, you need to let go of your fears. I think the Bible is very straight forward in this. Remember Japheth, Hannah or even Samson? They were bold and asked God for something steadfastly. God heard them and their wishes were granted. Same case here, you are supposed to ask her out if you indeed like her. Be bold.Of course, this should be your prayer item and ask for God's guidance. However, know that God won't ask the lady out for you. You are to step up to the task. From your statements, it is evident that she has hots for you. Both of you should click. If at all she agrees to go on a date, then you are very safe. Make it a pathway to her heart. Make good friends with her, and with time make your intentions clear. I wish you all the best.

    Boyka:Undisputed

    Sometimes, we find ourselves having weird talents that leave us in a dilemma. This is because they involve engaging to some level of sin. One wants to do as God wishes while at the same time your talent's calling. Boyka is a 2016 movie that features a fighter whose talent is in the ring. He has a dream of participating in the big league and he, therefore, works hard, winning matches back to back. He donated to the church and severally had an internal conflict especially when the priest insisted that God does not love fighting as it maimed others. On the qualifying match, he ruthlessly beats the opponent who later succumbs to injuries. Boyka learning this traces the wife of the dead fighter. He finds that they owed a certain tycoon money and therefore the wife is ever held hostage. He makes a deal with the tycoon to fight so that the woman may be set free. In the end, Boyka emerges victorious, and the woman eventually forgives him. He is remorseful of his actions. It is a nice movie that has lots of emotions.

    How do you beat stress?

    I like to always listen music whenever I am stressed. I believe music is the soul healer. It boosts one morale. Sometimes you find that the music has just the right lyrics that give hope for your woes. I also try and talk to friends. That way I am able to divert the tension in me and it fades away. Friends also encourage me and help me to go through the troubles.
  15. I think it is a bad move. This should be condemned in the highest terms possible. Disney should know that whatever is instilled to a kid remains in them forever. When you air such, kids will grow thinking it is okay to engage in such weird acts. Sometimes I even do not understand why content producers insist on including gay roles. Whatever they are brewing up is not good and if not stopped it will bring chaos in the near future.
