You need to take your time reading this piece of letter.
This letter makes a very interesting read and is ‘north a west’ of time!
I am not one to jump on bandwagons, but in this case, I would have to go against one of my unwritten rules, and copy the likes of the ex-President of this great nation; the sitting
President and a former Senator of the Federal Republic (I believe you know the people I’m talking about).
This is my message to you all.
First, you may be reading this letter thinking that it does not concern you because you’re not MAD! Because you are properly dressed, can operate a Blackberry or Android phone, you think that makes you sane?
Or simply because you have a job, a family, take care of your responsibilities, and you don’t talk to yourself? Do you really think that qualifies you as not insane?
Well, I don’t blame you, because I also used to think that way. I used to think I was a normal boy with no mental illness whatsoever, but thank God, I’m wiser now. I’m proud to say I’m a MAD Nigerian! After all, they say the first step to healing is to admit that you’re sick.
One of the characteristics of MAD men is that they often do things that go against logic and reasoning, and most of the time, they don’t even know that they’re mad. As a matter of fact, they believe that it is others that are mad.
Many of you go to churches and mosques and still go against what they preach. Because you’re MAD!
What about the mentally deranged men and women who traffic hard drugs? Those ones fast and pray before ingesting the banned substances.
The other day, one man came attempting to rule a failing nation of over 150 million people. The nation was on the brink of collapse; every sector had gone practically comatose, and yet the only manifesto of this man was that HE HAD NO SHOES while growing up.
What kind of people will be inspired by such a mundane claim to vote him in as President, in the 21st century no less? Your guess is as good as mine: only MAD people.
MAD people are very gullible, so they believe anything.
Only a MAD person will buy just two cars for over N255m; in a country where wretchedness reigns supreme.
Fine, the pastor is not guilty until he has been pronounced so by a competent court of law, but it is striking to note that when this pastor was released on bail and got back to church (full of mad people, of course), he raised this prayer point, “God will use your shame to announce you. If you want that to be your portion, come forward now with your special seed.” Choi, we have suffered in this country!
If it was in other climes where there are sane people, the pastor wouldn’t even meet anybody in the church! But in this country of MAD men, a lot of the MAD people were even struggling with themselves to be among the ‘lucky’ few that would drop their offerings. Meanwhile, this same MAD people will not spare ordinary N50 for a beggar on the streets.
Instances abound where clerics would sleep with their MAD members with the promise of fruit of the womb..
One of the numerous consequences of this ugly development is that many have stopped and some are considering stopping churches altogether.
It is unfortunate that we have now confused RELIGION with MADNESS. We do a lot of things, thinking we are RELIGIOUS, yet we are only showing signs of MADNESS.
If it’s any consolation, this MADNESS has spread to other parts of the world.
We shouldn’t kid ourselves about being a righteous Bible loving people, we are all a bunch of pretentious, MAD hypocrites.
We are obviously not righteous; for we wouldn’t be one of the most corrupt nations on earth if we were.
Sorry, even if you’re MAD, God is not. Repent before it’s too late!
