Take a look around you. It does not matter what part of the world you live, one thing is constant with the world as it is – crises here, there and everywhere. The world seems to be in a constant state of crisis. When you think things could not get worse, we find ourselves on the edge of genocide in Africa – in Cote d’voire and possibly Sudan. Hundreds of innocent citizens are lying wasted in Nigeria’s Jos Plateau, in a continuation of a maze-like crisis that has rocked the once peaceful enclave of Nigeria’s expatriate community. Successive PDP governments of Obasanjo, Yar’ Adua and Goodluck Jonathan have shown nothing but incompetence in dealing with the Jos issue.
Christmas always comes with one challenge or the other for Nigerians. Some are even predicting an all-out war in the run-up to the 2011 general elections. Like Africa, other parts of the world have their own share of trouble. Bomb blasts in Athens, suicide bombs in Afghanistan and Iraq, unsolved murders in UK, failing economies in other parts. It is a world in crisis no doubt. The question is, who is responsible for all of this?
The answer is simple enough; man is and it lies with man to find the solution. We can keep blaming God, Who has since left the world to us to manage as we would.
To my question; Is God losing it or has he?
The answer is simple too; Well, God never had it and you can’t lose what you don’t have. It is okay to call on God to help us out in these situations but we must not shirk from the responsibility of being responsible enough to take care of our home, our world.
Enough of blaming God for our pains, when we don’t even acknowledge him with our gains – time to live a little bit more responsibly.
