I received a long mail from an unknown elderly woman yesterday night and it was so touching. She requested I put it up here for everyone to read and learn from. Kindly read it below.
I wake up in pain everyday and wish everyday and I pray the next time I open my eyes, I should find myself in the world beyond and not here on earth.
I came across your different posts yesterday and felt I could share my secret with you and may be if I did, my story may help one or two parents who read your posts.
I got married at the age of 24years to my husband who was a medical practitioner just like I was. We both focused on our carried and of course were both successful in all we did but not in our parenting our own flesh and blood.
We had two children, Kunle the first and Tola the second. Kunle was a very inquisitive boy and asked questions on everything. He even had a nick name “the examiner”.
His father and I got tired of his questions that we started locking up the door to our bedroom once we came back from work. How I wish I knew better, how I wish I read those posts of yours then.
By the time Kunle was four years old, he was much more intelligent than his colleagues and he was so lively, you would never have a dull moment with him. He loved his sister so much and we were always proud of him. His father and I were so sure Kunle was also going to become a medical doctor just like we were.
We loved our children so much and had plans to give then the best of everything although we were always busy and were not always at home because of the nature of our job. This made us hire a nanny and we also had one of my brothers in-law with us.
On day, I came back from work very tired and my son ran into my room with me and asked,
“why do you always close your door anytime you and daddy are in the room?”
“Do you like kissing my daddy?”
“why don’t you kiss me too?”
I got so upset with him that I beat him severely and reported him to his teacher the next day. We believed some of his friends were already exposed and may be watched bad movies at home. By the end of that term, we withdrew Kunle and Tola from the school.
We did not allow him and his sister watch the television at home and also stopped them from visiting their friends and neighbours. We did all this to preserve our children’s sanity but hardly did we know what was happening right under our roof.
Some two years later, I got home unusually early to pick up a document. I noticed the door was not shut and everywhere was quiet. I sneaked in to give my children a playful surprise when I realised that their uncle and nanny were in the sitting alongside with my children watching pornography. I hate remembering that day. Not only were they watching pornography, but they were all naked, practicing what they were watching.
I drove out the nanny and my brother in-law but the seed was already planted. When I was crying, my six year old son came to me and said, mummy why are you crying, uncle and aunty are only teaching us how to be good mummy and daddy. I was shocked as I never even knew that this had been going on for over two years and my children had be indoctrinated into this messy life style at their tender ages.
We never realized the impact this had had on their lives until we caught both of them having sexual intercourse on uncountable occasions. Tola and Kunle did not only continue with this but became obsessed with each other.
Their father and I kept this as our “little secret” as we were well known in our carrier. We tried correcting them in love with tears streaming down our faces whenever we caught them in the act. They promised us they were going to change. We had had done two abortions for our daughter, since we could not face the stigma of incest.
On a fateful day, Tola walked up to her father and I and told us she was pregnant for Kunle again. Her father insisted on an abortion as usual but this time we lost our twenty year old daughter in the process. Kunle on learning Tola had died never spoke to neither his father nor I again. He eventually left home.
Three months after he left home, we received a call from an hospital telling us our son was in a terrible state in their ICU. When we got there, Kunle was lying unconscious. He had poisoned himself.
Finally, he got conscious and we were so happy, he looked at us as we sat by he bedside and told us how much he hated us for killing his sister. We pleaded with him and apologized.
We got to the hospital the next day to see his corpse, he had suffocated himself by removing his oxygen mask.
I am now 74 years old and a widow, my husband could not forgive himself and died of depression three years ago. I regret my years of ignorance everyday. I wish I could start afresh.
I have never opened up my family “little secret” up till today. I don’t know if my story can be of help to other parents, I am tired of carrying this burden without telling a soul.
I am happy I finally surmounted the courage to open up to someone today. Oh, my life is a great mess.
Kindly do me a favour of posting this on your Facebook page for parents to learn how expensive their actions today could be tomorrow.

So…. homosexuality is an abomination according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstances as preached by many. The following was an open letter to your comment.
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God’s Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can.
When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination.
End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God’s Laws and how to follow them.
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can’t I own Canadians?
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness – Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord – Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination, Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don’t agree. Can you settle this? Are there ‘degrees’ of abomination?
#Black and #Afro #Carribean #communities, need to understand; and appreciate the goodness in #western #values and #culture; if they want to thrive, in that #society. You can't impose #traditions that don't fit their #norms, and call it racial #prejudice – always. Some come up with the #agenda #ploy often. Why? I'm not naive – but – Dont get in a fit and #empty #rage needlessly, blaming it all on #slavery. Well – my agenda is the "#Love Agenda' – if there is, anything, such as an agenda. Each to their own agenda. I'm #down with #love any time 'T'. #MercyfulGrace #Aremuorin #AnthonyEverest
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16.
Couldn’t we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
Matthew 7:13-14 (NIV) The Narrow and Wide Gates 13 “Enter through the #narrow #gate. For #wide is the #gate and #broad is the #road that leads to #destruction, and many #enter #through it. 14 But #small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to #life, and only a #few #find it. My #bible moments. By their #fruits you shall know them. Sweet Lord. I feel convicted today. Real Talk. This chapter is epic. It says vividly about vibrations and discerments. How to spot fake people. It's uncanning and packed with wisdom. The whole chapter. One of my favourites in the bible. Just look at the world today. Flick on your media and wonder what's going wrong around our surroundings. The array of #evil things we are doing to our #brothers and #sisters. It's shameful. May #love find us, #guide #us and #remind. #Amen #MercyfulGrace #MercyfulGraceDiaries
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I’m confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God’s word is eternal and unchanging.
P.S. (It would be a damn shame if we couldn’t own a Canadian).
