LOVE, what is love? IDK about you personally but I am a Christian, devoted believer not just a religious person. I believe strongly in the bible and the biblical teachings inspired by God. So it should be no surprise that my understanding of love and what love is are based on the word of God.
According to 1 Corinthians 13, love is a lot of things, but not once have I read whether it be the bible or any biblical literature, that love is wicked or selfish, or evil, foolish, self pleasing/seeking. Please correct me if there’s anything out there that paints love in those light.
Now earlier yesterday, 3:00ish AM I woke up and in the short moment I got on the internet (youtube to be precise), I came across the most foolish thing I think I’ve ever seen in my entire life. I saw people publicly admitting that THEY would in fact go ahead to marry someone who was a #GenotypeAS if they also had the #sicklecelltrait. Some even went to the extent of saying they don’t want to know the genotype of their spouse or theirs for that matter.
Nothing, absolutely nothing could’ve prepared me for the foolishness displayed, nothing could’ve prepared me for that shocking dose of reality. WOW. In 2014. People, not just any kind of people, my people, my fellow Nigerians were foolishly boasting about “believing in miracles” that will apparently change the genotype of their unborn child. I mean, what in the entire world of fuckery did I watch? And then to think our Naija celebs were parading social media, doing the #ALSicebucketchallenge. I am disturbed, slightly scarred but now more than ever, Nigerians you ain’t got much choice than to listen. I WILL not stop, I will keep harassing you… all of YOU reading this. I and a load of us are coming to your communities, we’re taking over your neighborhoods, all in your face. You have been warned.
