Papa did what
I am damned.
”some people are pighead o”
Brother justice retorted,We were
both relaxing over a bottle of
guiness malt after the day’s field
Brother justice was from Umuna congregration and we had been
He was a jolly good fellow but the
problem he had was his
aggresiveness,he would go to any
length to score his point even if it means talking till his neck veins
popped out and beads of
perspiration rolled down his
‘yes o’I agreed,nodding like an
agama lizard. The day’s field service had left us
breathless after minutes of trying
to lay emphasis to two religious
fanatics that there was no where in
the bible were ‘HELLFIRE’ was
written. You may see Hell or Hades but you wouldnt see
Hades otherwise known as HELL
is a state of Unconciousness, The
bible itself had said ‘THE WAGES
OF SIN IS DEATH’ if HELLFIRE
really exist that verse would simply
be written as ‘THE WAGES OF
SIN IS ETERNAL TORMENT’.
Now tell me why the much loving
father would cast his children into
a place of Endless torment.How fair is that?
Even you as a human if you had
an ever offending child would you

some minutes trying to explain to
Our next stop wasnt that nice,the first question we were asked was
that why we don’t pray.
Brother justice took the lead,he
asked them how many times in the
bible that jesus prayed before
teaching? When I saw that his temper was
getting out of hand I nudged him
and took the reins,i told them that
we do pray and I explained that it
wasnt compulsory that we would

We left after dropping few copies
of awake with the title ‘what do
people say about God’.
The topic was delicate and that
was why we had encounter so many questionaires.
Anyway our next stop was the
worst,they slammed the door on
our faces and we quietly walked
away.*We started talking about the
regular pioneers in our various
congregration,brother justice was
from Umuna congregration while i
was from ezeala congregration,we
compared and combined,one thing led to another and before one
could say ‘julius caesar’ we were
talking about the females in our
congregrations that were doing
good and those that were a shame.
He mentioned ‘chioma akunna’ and my heartbeat accelerated,i
pretended i didnt know who she
was and I told him to go into
By the time he was through i knew
he was refering to chioma my girlfriend.
‘ehen what about her?’ I asked as
if i wasnt keen about knowing her
‘that girl is a shame to
Us,nothwitstanding the fact that her father is an elder in our
congregration she sleeps with
every d_ick that comes her way”
“how do you know that? The way
you described her i believe i may
know her” i remarked. “am surprise that you havent heard
of her escapades,am sure she is
going to be disfellowed very soon”
I shrugged like i didnt give a d--n
while within me i was boiling in
rage. “how do you know all this about
this chioma?” i asked,nonchalantly.
“nwanna,i have seen it with my two
