    George, please educate us: what do they say what happened before we were born? Coz if it’s true we should all be in a position to agree since we all should have experienced it! The fact that there are different religions with different claims should be enough for any human with half the brains of a chimpanzee to conclude that All religions are man made, all gods (including this one who impregnated a carpenters wife without his (Joseph) consent is fake, made up imaginary etc.

    TT, religion explains what happens before you are born. Your argument shows that you know nothing about religion. You dont have to be religious but you need to read so that you make informed choices. I have had chats with so many non-believers who at the end of the day come to realise that their choices were based on mere emotions. When we say religion we mean christianity, hinduisim, judaisim, islam, budhaisim, Illuminati, masonic, Druids etc. mipingo yonseyi will explain to u what you need to know. Osamangoti fwefwe apa.

    I don’t understand some of these questions, quote “was he sick?” From the article, we are told that he died at SDA Hospital, what more do we want to know? Maybe funso likanakhala lakuti “what has he died of?” Please folks don’t ask stupid and sarcastic questions here, ndi malirotu awa, zipongwe bwanji!!!. MHSRIEP

    Gerald, death is death, the end! It’s very surprising that religion is so sure about where we go next, as if there is evidence for the claims it makes, but it (religion) is very very ignorant about things before birth, why? Why is it that something ( pre birth) remains a mystery to us, yet all of us alive today have passed through it?

  22. Gerald says:

    yes.sad that hes gone.but this should give evry one here a food for thought.we are next on the line.have you made it right with your maker? what everyone needs to know here is that Life one day is going to come to an end,but the good news is that the soul lives on.You need to think very seriously about that because once you die and enter the after life you cant change your destination.You have to think now about where to spend eternity and you have two choices.’HEAVEN OR HELL’

    Receive Christ Jesus as your saviour today inorder to be sure of not losing your soul and going to hell when death way or another we will all die some day.that the appointment noone shall miss.
