“What Women Want in Men” This is response to your good article that appeared in your 20th issue of the popular magazine.

 

I thought you might like a woman’s word. While I will say that yes, about 98% of the info in the article is correct, I have a few disagreements.

How Pentecostal Brainwashing = Religious Indoctrination? Your article on the above subject left me confused. Okay, so lately I’ve been trying to find a new church to go to, because I think I need to start getting into religion again. So tomorrow night, I am going with my friend to a new church. He is a Pentecostal, and we’re going to a Pentecostal church. I was reading online that they speak in tongues (which scares me) and they are a sect of Protestantism, but I was wondering if this is a good church to go to? Also, do Pentecostals tend to be a brainwashing (for a choice of a better word) religion? Because if it is, I want nothing to do with it. I left the last church I went to months ago because I realized they were practically a cult and I didn’t want to be the type of “Christian” they were. What I’m looking for is a decent religion with really good Christians. Oh, and I want serious answers, not “all religions are brainwashing” or “religion sucks” because that will not help me at all. Thank you! 🙂 Ruth, Ghana

Dear Ruth, listen to God and let Him place you where He wants you. You don’t need to get into “religion” again, you need to get into a “relationship” with Jesus.

 

Whatever church you are in, always go to the Word of God to confirm or reject what is being taught. If it is teaching the Word then your brain should be changed, replacing wrong thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors with Christ-like thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. It is called renewing your mind to the Word of God.

 


Rom 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. No one on here can tell you if “this” church is a good one to go to. You will have to go and find out for yourself. Shola – Nigeria   First of all, a woman likes a guy who is cocky, and who will take and give as good as he gets. BUT, she also likes when he can turn around and be a perfect gentleman, can dry her tears, and yes, even be a nice guy for a few minutes when life is not going her way. Second, alpha males are good, but let me emphasize what was mentioned: DO NOT act like a jerk, going off on other people for not getting your way all the time. And sometimes, men do need to ask the woman where she wants to eat. Women like to feel that they have some influence in the relationship sometimes, so let her have her way sometimes. And being yourself does have a lot to add. I know most of the guys that I have liked weren’t trying to be alpha males and they certainly weren’t trying to impress me, so be careful and don’t overdo it. Betty Magezi – Denmark


 Parenting a Lifetime role

I recently read the article on Parenting a Lifetime role  and I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Mum Theresa (my mother) who has really played a great role in the upbringing of my siblings and I. Parenting is a lifetime responsibility and should never be taken for granted. At times one must sacrifice so as to give the BEST to their children. I remember, my mum had to go with one pair of shoes for us to have ‘grab’ and school dues. I have grown up to be a very responsible citizen on the African Continent. I still give thanks to the Almighty LORD for the special kindness and LOVE our mum has had for us.

 

Thank you very much Mum Theresa
