Redeemed Church Heartlessly Mocks Death Of Book Pirate With Open Heavens Advert

Posted in: , , ,

Where is our humanity? As Christians, where is our compassion and love? An advertisement message using the picture above and promoting Pastor EA Adeboye's daily devotional, Open Heavens, has gone viral on Facebook and I find it utterly distasteful that it is supposedly coming from the camp of a man of God. I was minded to disregard the advert but I was tagged in it more than once and one of the people who started it, I noticed, is a respected member of the Redeemed Church. The message goes thus;

Miracle! Newborn Starts Breathing in Final Cuddle With Parents After Doctors Say He's 'Dead'

Posted in: , ,

Kate and David Ogg were heartbroken when they were told at the premature delivery of their twins - born 2 minutes apart at just 26 weeks - that one of them had stopped breathing and had just moments to live. Thinking it was the only time they would have with the tiny boy they had already decided to name Jamie, Kate asked to be able to hold the almost lifeless child, and told David to climb into the hospital bed, shirtless - for a tender embrace. What happened next was nothing short of a miracle.

In this mother's loving arms, and basking in the combined warmth of his parent's bodies, the little boy started moving, and his breathing grew stronger. Hospital staff rushed back to his aid and together brought the baby back to life.

Doctors Perform World's First Successful Penis Transplant In South Africa

Posted in: , ,

The unnamed 21-year-old beneficiary of the transplant had to have his penis amputated three years ago after circumcision, and after his surgery last December, experts thought would take him two years to regain all function. However, it took just four months for this to occur resulting in the operation being declared an outstanding success.

According to Sky News, the surgery was five years in the planning at Stellenbosch University and Tygerberg Hospital. The surgery has been attempted once before - but this is the first example of a successful long-term result. Experts estimate as many as 250 penis amputations take place every year across South Africa.

Photo of Newborn Swaddled In American Flag Gets Photographer In Trouble

Posted in: , , ,

Photographer Vanessa Hicks, got herself in hot water after a newborn photo she posted to her professional Facebook page went viral. The navy veteran who is also married to a military man says she never could have anticipated the backlash she got from the photo of another military father in uniform, holding his baby in an American flag. The online furore, she said, started from a Facebook page that attacked the photo for desecrating the American flag.

Naysayers criticised the photograpgher and her husband, and also the father whose name appears in the photo as seen above. Some insisted he needed to be disciplined or sacked. But Hicks stood up for her picture and called on her friends, fans, family, and anyone who loved the picture to defend it and share. Now, she may be making prints to sell of the photo, and she believes this is a win for those in military service who often give their lives in defence of the country, the flag and all it stands for.

Creflo Dollar Deletes Fundraiser For $60 Million Private Jet After Backlash

Posted in: , ,

Yesterday, world renowned prosperity preacher, Pastor Creflo Dollar created a fundraising page on his website for one of the most luxurious private jets in production, a Gulfstream G650, to cost $60 Million. He requested for 200,000 believers to donate $300 each to help him and the church quickly reach the goal and purchase the private jet. There was an immediate online backlash once the story leaked on theroot and elsewhere, and now, the goFundme page has been removed.

The church had been making the demand because, they said, the private jet the pastor had been using before now had recently suffered engine failure leading to an emergency landing, which is not a good thing. The intro begging for donations re-iterated that Pastor Creflo Dollar needed a replacement so as to ensure that he, his wife, and staff members of the church can get to their overseas engagements safely and quickly, at any needed time.
