Sex and the Christian Faith

Sex and the Christian Faith 

So last week I volunteered with an NGO called young persons Conscience for Health Initiative. They go around senior and junior secondary schools in rural FCT teaching young children the importance of Abstinence till marriage to enhance academic performance and health. 

This experience was very eye-opening for me in the sense that I understood that nobody is talking about pre-marital sex. If at all they are talking about pre-marital sex, the conversation is based on the fear of unwanted pregnancy and contracting sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV/AIDS, Staphylococci, herpes etc. The talk about unwanted pregnancy and STD's only suggests engaging in pre-marital sex but not getting caught.
Who is really talking to young children about masturbation, homosexuality, pornography, incest, molestation and rape? Parents evade the topic; churches scare people about hell without really diving into this issue. The fear of hell has never stopped anyone from enga…

Are you a judgemental Christian? Learn the difference between judgement and correction

Are you a judgemental Christian? Learn the difference between judgement and correction


1 Corinthians 5:9-13 (MSG)9-13 I wrote you in my earlier letter that you shouldn’t make yourselves at home among the sexually promiscuous. I didn’t mean that you should have nothing at all to do with outsiders of that sort. Or with crooks, whether blue- or white-collar. Or with spiritual phonies, for that matter. You’d have to leave the world entirely to do that! But I am saying that you shouldn’t act as if everything is just fine when a friend who claims to be a Christian is promiscuous or crooked, is flip with God or rude to friends, gets drunk or becomes greedy and predatory. You can’t just go along with this, treating it as acceptable behaviour. I’m not responsible for what the outsiders do, but don’t we have some responsibility for those within our community of believers? God decides on the outsiders, but we need to decide when our brothers and sisters are out of line and, if necessary, clean h…

The pressure to bear fruits is on God

The pressure to bear fruits is on God
Repeat after me "The pressure is not on me"

After I did the what it means to be born again post, I received messages from people trying to connect being born again in their spirit with their actions. Some asked me how come we still sin even though we are no longer slaves to sin and death. Today's post will be attempting to answer these questions.

Let me clear up something because you sin, it does not mean you are a sinner. You have to understand that although your spirit is born again, your mind is not born again. Spiritually you are not a sinner, you are a saint. You have a new identity in Christ. For your mind to match your spirit you need to experience a transformation that is birthed by the Holy Spirit through the renewing of your mind.

Romans 12:2 (NKJV) And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

The get to know me tag

So I have been blogging for a while now and I found out many people that follow my blog know little to nothing about me. I apologise, it was a slip-up. Anyways, here are questions that I answered. I hope it gives you insight on the person I am and help you connect with my blog better. Don't forget to like and follow me on social media, its bibilamour04 on all platforms.
Here we go...

Are you named after anyone?

No, I'm not.

Does your name have a special meaning?

My name is a Yoruba name given to kids that were born when their dad wasn’t around. My dad travelled to the Philippines when I was born. I like to think of my name as a promise kept, in the sense that my mum and I were fine in expectant of my dad.
However, my nickname is BB gotten from my initials Bidemi Babatunde. I upgraded it to Bibi to make it more mouth full. This is for all the people that assume I formed Bibi myself😶😶, now you know the source. 
When was the last time you cried?


On Sunday the 4th of November, I h…

Why you should be born again; Heaven is a gift not a reward

Why you should be born again; Heaven is a gift not a reward 

Hello, thank you so much for clicking this link. May God continually bless you. So last week we talked about what it means to be born again. I appreciate all your comments and feedback, it means a lot to me when you interact with me.
By the topic, we are discussing the amazing perks of being born again. Let me drop one of my favourite scriptures that makes me excited about the reality of being born again. 1 Peter 2:9 But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God's very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for he called you out of the darkness into his wonderful light. See as a believer, you are not regular! You are extra special! You have Jesus on your side constantly negotiating and mediating for you. That is why when we pray in the name of Jesus, it is like Jesus praying to the God the father. There are no limits! God loves you, it is …
