Apostle Dr. Lee Ann B. Marino, Ph.D., D.D.
When A Family Member Rejects Christ (And Rejects You, Too) Another one bites the dust My sister, Norma* (name has been changed) has had more people reach out to her and pray for her than I care to count. She experienced great struggle in her life, often due to her own choices and reckless behaviors, and this caused many around her to feel concern for her well-being and safety. She told horror stories, caused distention between people, put herself in harm’s way, and never seemed to yield to any good sense or advice. Believing in prayer, the power of God to change, and hope, many felt compelled to reach out to Norma in multiple ways. Beginning in her teens onward, she now being in her middle 30s, has had people pray and intercede on her behalf. The family sent her things, my mother sent her things, I sent her things. People outside the family reached out to her, time and time again, to try and help her with problems, figure out her life, and ultimately, focus and find God in the midst of circumstances. After the birth of her first child, more people intervened to help her again, in the hopes she would reform her life for the sake of her growing family.
Numerous people repeatedly reached out to Norma, only to be met with hostility, anger, and judgment. Even when people did not mention God, but tried to reach out to her as a human being, she flatly and rudely accused everyone of trying to “convert” her. Her consistent rudeness left everyone tired and discouraged because it became impossible to have a normal conversation with her, even if taboo subjects, such as God and religion, did not come up. The situation with Norma grew so out of control that contact with her was severed. Every single time I talked to her, no matter what the discussion was about, because about a sinister battle for control. She wanted me to abandon my ministry call so she could be more comfortable with me. By proxy, it would also make her more comfortable with her unreasonable behavior and unreasonable stance on life matters. Norma rejected God because she didn’t want to accept responsibility for her own behavior. In the process, she rejected not just me, but every one of us who became a glaring reality that there was more to life than abusing others to get what one
I seldom speak of my family situation because it has been my experience most people are extremely judgmental when it comes to “unsaved” family. The only other person in my family who is a Christian is my mother. In a world where family is the number one idol of most people, the concept of having any family member remain unsaved seems a travesty, as if the believer is not doing their job. Once I was online when someone I barely knew came on Yahoo! Messenger and began asking me various questions that seemed simple enough. Then we got to one that I stupidly answered: Are all of your family members saved? When I answered that my mother is but no one else is, the worst thing he could have ever said came out of his mouth: “Well, are you going to get them saved, you are closest to them you know, or are you going to just leave them and do your own thing?” We didn’t talk again after this. I was furious at the clear implication in his words. I have devoted my life to ministry and teaching, and done very well at the work God has called me to do. I’ve reached out to people for years - and yes, this includes my stubborn and obstinate relatives - and yet here was somebody who naturally assumed I wasn’t a good minister because I have relatives who are not Christian. It’s obvious from Christian television today that Christian ministers and Christians in general should have their entire family in tow, from extended to immediate, on the Christian journey with them. If someone in the family rejects Jesus, people look down on the minister or Christian as a total failure. The implication is made that the believer did not do enough, pray hard enough, or extend one’s self enough. There is no consideration of circumstances or the non-believing relative’s personal responsibility. Such an attitude can leave even the most confident Christian disillusioned, feeling as if they “don’t measure up.”
Reassurance for the believer Making believers feel as if they are failures, not measuring up, or in sin because their entire family is not Christian is a (Continued on page 4)
When A Family Member Rejects Christ (And Rejects You, Too) (Continued from page 3) thoroughly unchristian attitude. I am not saying or implying we should never speak of God or Christ to relatives or never witness to them, but when is enough, enough? The Bible does not say we should allow ourselves to be abused, mocked, or mistreated for our faith by those who reject it. While such may come, the Bible bewares us about “casting our pearls before swine.” If someone does not want to believe in God, relative or not, God does not force them to believe...so why should we? If we are going to be realistic, the happy portraits of extended Christian families don’t always exist outside of a photo in a frame. Somebody, somewhere is going to resent your attempts to help them have a good relationship with God, and you would think the church would be more understanding about this. Sometimes, despite our best efforts, we will remain unsuccessful in this area. Believers do not need unnecessary pressure on them to do something that, after one provides the information and the heart, one can either accept or reject. Believe it or not, Scripture has a lot to offer on this subject. Not even the words of Jesus Himself broke through the hardened hearts of all who heard Him speak. Jesus too faced rejection from plenty of people, including some relatives, even though we don’t speak on this matter very much. Jesus tells us, “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughterin-law against the mother-in-law. And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household. He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.” (Matthew 10:35-37, KJV) Jesus knew evangelizing relatives would be a difficult task, and acknowledges clarity in
family dynamics. Jesus also reveals something powerful about His mission: the power of choices. Many have debated what exactly Jesus means in this passage, saying He did not come to bring peace, but a sword. Jesus was raising a powerful reality about the Kingdom of God. As part of God’s Kingdom, we are confronted with choices and decisions. It is a choice to serve and follow God, one that everyone does not make. Making the choices that lead to life are not going to be accepted by everyone’s family members. Being a part of God’s Kingdom will sometimes cause conflict, division, and discord. It is not because God’s precepts are wrong, but because choosing to serve God means we love Him before we love our families. Some family members do not like the priority shift, and never recover. Jesus also reminds us the pursuit of family above that of God is not a Kingdom mind set. Thinking we should chase after family members through God (meaning we use God as the excuse to pursue them) for a change in behavior or desired conversion is a dangerous area of idolatry that will lead to division with God. Jesus was acknowledging family is an idol for many people, and that dethroning this idol will come at a high price in one’s family. Family cannot come first when one is in God; God must come first!
Unique circumstances of family evangelism Family members offer a unique set of circumstances in evangelism. Most Christians are trained in only one method of evangelization: that of giving testimony. While this is a good way to evangelize to certain audiences, only knowing how to give testimony does not prepare us for the larger picture of ministry evangelism. One group that requires a different approach to evangelism is family members. Often “roles” are acquired within family units that are not easily broken: the “baby,” the “oldest,” the “responsible one,” the “irresponsible one,” the “favorite,” the “black sheep,” the “partier,” and
Not even the words of Jesus broke through the hardened hearts of all who heard Him speak.
so on. I know from my own family experience and that of others I’ve known that no matter how old we get, how successful we are, or how knowledgeable we become, our family roles remain imprinted in our family dynamics. It makes it hard to grow with our siblings and other family members, especially if there is a wide gap in age, and especially if contact is sporadic or nearly non-existent. With some family members, it won’t matter what the topic is, they will never accept what it is that you are saying. Is it hopeless? No, not at all. In these circumstances, what do we have to keep in mind? What does God ask of us when it comes to our family members?
God only asks us to do our best for Him This area can be the most difficult when evangelizing anyone - family or not who is unwilling to listen. As believers, we should always seek to do our best for God. Not do we just want to do our best for God, we should also want to do our best for those we want to lead to Him. If you have checked yourself and there is no question about your representation of the Lord in personage, attitude, and conduct, you have to step back and realize the lack of results are not your fault. It’s not your fault if you’ve stood in the gap for years and years and your brother, sister, mother, father, grandmother, etc. refuse to make that final leap to Christ. If you’ve informed them, prayed hard, sought to be good and live your faith well, there is only so much you can do. When it’s a case that you have truly done your best, you need to let God do the rest. Sometimes our role is to sow seeds that later harvest; it’s not our place to see the harvest ourselves right now.
Be patient I know patience can be hard one, especially when it comes to family. Don’t use witnessing for the Lord as an excuse to get back at your sister or brother because they humiliated you in front of your high school date twenty years ago. Conversion isn’t an instant process. Although there are those who immediately come around, the vast majority of us did not become Christians overnight. It was a process by which many people (Continued on page 16)
What was the name of Lot’s wife? The Bible doesn’t reveal to us the name of Lot’s wife. According to the Book of Jasher, which is regarded as an Old Testament apocryphal source, her name was Ado, or Edith.
Ask The Apostle Questions And Answers
Orthodox Churches allow their clergy to marry, as long as one is married prior to ordination. Bishops must remain unmarried. Roman Catholic clergy are required to remain celibate on all levels of service. Women who serve as nuns must remain celibate, and only belong to one order, whereas the Roman Catholic Church espouses many orders and allows third order membership for married men and women in some orders. The two churches often appear different upon first glance: the clerical robes are different, the churches are structured differently, and the attitude and approach of faith are very different.
What are the differences between the Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches? The Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches emerged as result of a schism between the eastern and western churches in 1054. In ancient times, the traditional churches were ruled by patriarchs. These patriarchs led the churches over certain regions, similar to the role of a bishop today. As the church developed both political and cultural influence, the eastern churches began to adopt different traditions, cultures, and regard in visual application of doctrine and liturgy. One of the biggest differences was the use of icons in the eastern church versus the use of statues in the western church. An icon is a flat, two-dimensional image of Jesus, Mary, or saints, believed to be the individual in their “glorified,” or heavenly state. Orthodox believers hold great reverence for icons, believing them to be windows of heaven. Even though they revere these items in a similar manner to the way Roman Catholics revere statues (kissing, adorning, bowing down, kneeling in front of, lighting candles around, etc.), Orthodox individuals regard statues as idols and Roman Catholics as bowing down before idols. Roman Catholics, on the other hand, do not reject icons, but embrace the use of statues in worship. Then there was the issue of control. The Roman Catholic pope began to exert control over the entire western church, and the eastern churches and patriarchs resented the control Rome began to exercise. As Rome became a political power, the eastern churches began to feel controlled and dominated. A number of councils convened to try and work out the differences, but Rome always sought to keep itself on top and in control of the proceedings. The more issues began to arise, the more breakdowns came to the surface. Schism was inevitable. In 1054, the eastern and western churches disassociated with one another, in what became known as the Great Schism. Rome became its own entity, with the Roman patriarch, the pope, as its leader. The other

patriarchs became leaders over different areas of the eastern church. Known as “Orthodox,” the Orthodox Churches refer to themselves as such because they believe they have “right teaching,” as that is the definition of the word, “orthodox.” They are contrasting themselves with the Roman Catholic Church and other churches, insisting all have separated from the true faith which they seek to continue. Roman Catholics are identified through Rome, the seat of the pope. Their structure and emergence has come forth from the Roman Curia and Roman Empire. Catholics identify with Rome, believing the pope is the chair of Peter and the seat for authentic succession all the way back to the apostles of the first century. They are called “Catholic” because the world means “worldwide,” and the church is found in a good portion of the world. The Orthodox and Catholic claim a similar lineage, both of which trace back to a unified church, albeit a church far removed from the New Testament. Their similar lineage causes both to believe the other is in error. The Orthodox Churches are not centralized in power as the Roman Catholic Church. They do not have a central universal leader, and do not revere or acknowledge the authority of the pope. Most Orthodox churches are noted for their ethnic spin: most are acknowledged by their countries of origin (especially Eastern Bloc countries) and the language spoken in the liturgy. Orthodox Churches perform the Divine Liturgy, as opposed to
The remaining differences between Orthodox and Roman Catholicism are mostly doctrinal in nature. Doctrinal disagreements have plagued the east and west for thousands of years, dating all the way back to the third and fourth centuries AD. Questions on the nature of Christ, the nature of God, the manifestation of the Holy Spirit, the nature of monasticism, the exact meaning of the sacraments, and the rest, all have minor variances and differences among the two churches. Space does not allow me to get into the specific theological differences in full, but the basic summary of the differences falls into the nature of the two churches. The Orthodox Church has a markedly more mystical feel, understanding redemption and salvation differently than the Roman Catholic Church does. Roman Catholicism has a far more political feel and presence, and is far more of a world power and world influence. The Roman Catholic and Orthodox Churches have a long history of bitter opposition and dialogue. Their initial schisms have caused both churches to regard the other as bearers of heresy, breaking from the true line of succession, even though neither one can prove their point. Unable to resolve their doctrinal and social differences, the two churches remain at odds. Even though the Roman Catholic Church acknowledges the Orthodox communion and sacraments as valid, the Orthodox do not acknowledge Roman Catholic communion or sacraments as valid.

Thy Word Is A Lamp Studies in the book of Psalms Psalm 19: Declaring The Glory Of God, Part 1 (Verses 1-6) Many Christians fail to see God’s true power and voice through nature. We are so busy seeking God through supernatural signs (that are often powerful and wonderful, no doubt) that we miss God’s power and glory manifest all around us. The colors, beauty, fragrances, textures, and design of our world sings great praises unto a powerful Creator, One Whose attention to detail is precise and Who cares as much about beauty and aesthetic appeal as any designer would. It would benefit any Christian to spend time in nature, seeking God’s glory. We can see it in the skies, the stars, the seasons, the creatures, the seas and waterways, the day, and the night. Nature so reflects the glory of God that those pagans greatly in touch with the land mistook the glory of God in nature for its own glory and began idolizing it. Even though they distorted the glory inherent in creation, they truly recognized something powerful in it. Instead of letting nature lead us into idolatry, we need to see it can lead us into a more powerful experience with the Lord, and we can truly acquire knowledge of Him through our observations of it. (verses 1-2) No matter where we go in the world, God’s creation is still present. We may be in lands where we cannot understand the words of men, but we can always look around and see the language of God. God is speaking through His creation powerfully, calling all to know Him and come to a place of repentance. As a line, the works of God are set firm in their knowledge and purpose, unfixable. As mankind does its best to destroy what God has created through greed and sin, God’s line still remains firm, revealing Himself to us through His works. It is most interesting the Word makes specific reference to establishing a tabernacle for the sun. Within the universe, everything sits, sets, and revolves around the sun. It is a gravita-
tional force as well as one that dutifully works to keep life on earth alive. Without the warmth of the sun, the earth would enter an ice age. It brings with it the promise of a new day and a new life. It establishes us able to maintain our lives. In the spiritual realm, God is our spiritual “sun.” He comes forth, giving us the ability to run the race with confidence. He preserves our live and gives us the promise of a new day and a new life. As we know the Lord teaches us in “types,” using things common to us to point to realities of Him, we can see all of nature operating as a type and shadow of Him and His realities, revealing unto us great things about His nature and love for us. (verses 3-5) The Spirit of God fills the entire expanse of space, in heaven and in earth. There is no place that is without His presence, and there is no place where we cannot find Him. Even though diverse religions have attempted to create so-called sacred spaces where God’s presence exists, there is no need to do such a thing. Every space of land on God’s planet is sacred, reflecting the power and glory of God. Supernatural events can happen anywhere as long as God’s Spirit infuses the hearts and minds of His people. Where His people are, there is the ability to walk in God’s power. As we see God working in and through all things, we are able to delve more deeply and understand what it means to “walk with God.” We do not need to have great, ethereal spiritual experiences to walk with God. All we have to do is take a walk with Him in the cool of the day and hear God’s voice as He speaks to us. (verse 6)

Poached Quinces •
165g caster sugar
1 cinnamon stick
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1kg quinces, peeled, cored and each cut into 8 wedges (keep the pieces in lemon water to stop them from going brown) Cinnamon Crumble •
110g plain flour
2 tablespoons caster sugar
110g brown sugar
100g butter, diced
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
To poach the quinces:
Quality Quince Quince is a small fruit that grows on a tree and is native to warm temperatures in southwest Asia. The tree is related to apples and pears and it is a pome fruit. It is small, deciduous and bears a bright yellow, pear-shaped fruit. The fruit was known to the Akkadians who called it supurgillu (Arabic). The modern name originated in the fourteenth century as the plural of quoyn. Cultivation of quince is thought to have proceeded apple cultivation. Many translations in the Bible translated to the word “apple” may have been to the quince. Such is found in the Song of Solomon. Among the ancient Greeks, the quince was a ritual offering at weddings. The Romans also added quince to the Roman cookbook. It was used for stewing with honey and combining it with leeks. Quince are used to make jams, jellies, and quince pudding. They are roasted, baked, or stewed. They are too hard and sour to eat raw. The flesh of the fruit turns red after cooking. Small amounts can be added to apple pies and jams to enhance the flavor. The
term “marmalade” originally meant a quince jam. The fruit can also be used to make wine. Nutritionally, quince contains Vitamin A, Vitamin C, foliate, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, niacin, Vitamin B6, and small amounts of sodium. We find the quince a truly different kind of fruit. Although it’s obviously related to pears and apples, you don’t hear too much about it. Obviously, now, you know more about it! Once again, you can expand your horizons with a fruit that obviously has been on the earth for a very long time. There are many varieties and one can easily find more information and recipes on the internet. So help yourself to a new fruit!
Mix the water, sugar, cinnamon stick and lemon juice in a saucepan over low heat until the sugar dissolves. Add the quince and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered for 1 hour 30 minutes or until the quince is tender and rosy in color. Cool to room temperature in the syrup before straining out the quince. Store both the quince and the syrup in separate containers. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F. Line a deep 23cm square cake pan with baking paper. Beat the butter and sugar in the bowl with a mixer until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well between additions until just combined. Carefully, stir in the flour and milk in two batches. Spread the mixture over into the pan, smoothing the top before baking for 25 minutes. While cake is cooking make the crumble. In a food processor, add all the crumble ingredients and pulse until combined. When the cake is cooked remove from the oven. If using frozen blueberries toss them through the cornflour. Top the cake with drained quince then scatter over the blueberries before finally covering it with the cinnamon crumble mixture.

Watch On The World Examining current social, political, and religious events
Canadian line of Campbell’s soups has activists stewing over Islamic connection Andy Warhol found artistic inspiration in a can of Campbell’s tomato soup. These days, some activists are finding sinister Muslim connections in the same can. Campbell Soup Co., the Camden, N.J., food giant, has been fighting a grass-roots boycott of its products after its Canadian subsidiary rolled out a line of soups certified as halal, meaning they’re prepared according to Islamic dietary laws. Campbell Co. of Canada introduced the soups in a few Canadian markets in January, although American bloggers didn’t catch up to the news until earlier this month. That’s when the tempest in a tomato-soup can started. Blogger Pamela Geller began calling for a boycott earlier this month via her widely read site, Atlas Shrugs. Other bloggers soon joined in. The halal soups, designated with a special label, are available only in Canada. The company has no plans to offer a similar line in the United States, said John Faulkner, a company spokesman. In an interview, Geller, who was instrumental in whipping up opposition to an Islamic community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan, said she has no objection to the halal certification itself. Rather, she said, she opposes Campbell’s decision to have its Canadian products certified by the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), an organization that government prosecutors alleged had ties to the terrorist group Hamas in a 2007 conspiracy case. “No one is suggesting they refrain from this line,” Geller said. “No one is suggesting they not have halal food. I’m not against halal food any more than I’m against kosher food. My issue is who’s doing the
certifying.” ISNA, an organization based in Plainfield, Ind., was designated an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the prosecution of a charitable organization that funneled money to Hamas, the Islamist organization that rules the Gaza Strip. Hamas has been named a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. Critics like Geller also allege that ISNA has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, a fundamentalist political movement founded in Egypt in the 1920s. The State Department does not include the Brotherhood on its list of foreign terrorist organizations. ISNA has denied any ties to Hamas or to officials of a defunct charity called Holy Land Foundation, who were convicted in the conspiracy case. It has specifically condemned religious extremism and violence. In the wake of the conspiracy trial, Jewish and Protestant organizations issued statements in support of ISNA. A spokesperson for the group was unavailable for comment. In its ads for the halal soups, Campbell calls ISNA “the largest nonprofit, religious, educational, and non-political Islamic organization in North America.” Campbell investigated ISNA’s background and found “no issues of concern,” according to Faulkner. The group was referred to Campbell by a Canadian trade organization whose
member companies have used ISNA for their halal certification for years. “We point out to the people supporting this [boycott] that they are a very legitimate entity,” Faulkner said. “We feel very comfortable working with them.” As a historical footnote, he noted that Campbell set up a tent at the World Trade Center site immediately after the attacks in 2001 and offered free soup and other food to rescue workers and the news media for two weeks. The alleged links between ISNA and the Islamist groups appear to be lost on a Facebook page promoting the Campbell boycott. The Facebook page simply urges consumers to “Boycott Campbell Soup for their certification of their products as halal and supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.” Since its introduction on Oct. 5, the page has attracted nearly 3,500 “friends,” many of whom have posted anti-Muslim comments and articles unrelated to the boycott. The postings range from aggressive to hostile. “No to Campbell,” reads one of the tamer comments. “They cater to Muslims.” Faulkner said Campbell hasn’t noticed any effect on its sales since the boycott began. -http://www.washingtonpost.com/ wp-dyn/content/article/2010/10/17/ AR2010101702840.html?g=0

“Sara! Open the door, darling!” Mom was almost shouting now. She at once opened the door.
It was a rough day. It had rained like cats and dogs. Looking outside the window, she felt as if heaven wept with her. She closed her eyes and in the spur of a moment, her mind took her two days before and everything played like a film.
She was on her way to the hall when she found the main road was badly jammed. There was a terrible accident and it might take 2 hours or more to get it cleared. She had to reach the hall within thirty minutes. She took her bag and started walking towards her destination; she was breathless but was running. Her heart was pounding so fast that she could hear her heartbeats. At last she saw the
“Mrs. James came to meet you,” Mom informed. “Do I know her?” Sara asked, surprisingly. “Well! Indirectly, YES. She runs an orphanage and is a GOD-fearing lady. Your bag was snatched by one of the boys from her orphanage.”
“Mom! Mom! Have you read today’s newspaper? College of Arts has arranged an open painting competition and winner will get a full scholarship to the Bachelor’s program”, Sara said with strange delight. Her beautiful, big black eyes twinkled like stars. She embraced her mother tightly. It was her dream to study in COLLEGE OF ARTS and now she was sure to make it real. She murmured, “All things work together for good for those who love GOD.“ Her father had her register and told her that she must take her registration card along with her. When she entered the hall, it was full of students. In the first round, she was among fifteen students. In the second round, her artwork scored the highest number of points and she was first among eight students. Everyone was stunned to see her expertise in the field. She was indeed a great talent. Then she was among four highest scorers in the third round. Everyone there was admiring her paintings. The final round was next day and only one among the four would get the scholarship. She thanked God a lot for HIS help. The night before the competition, she opened her BIBLE to read and realized that she had reached the book of ESTHER, her favorite one. She loved the sequence of events and GOD’S deliverance of HIS people. She read the BIBLE, said her daily prayers,
“Oh! So this is the kind of training she gives in her orphanage!” Sara’s eyes were red due to anger. “No, Honey! Listen. She just found your bag in boy’s room and then with the help of your ID card, she located you. She just came to return the bag. When I told her about the incident, she felt very sorry.” Sara wanted to kill the boy. “Listen Sara! We all make mistakes. If GOD can forgive us, why can’t we forgive? It’s time for you to prove that you are a DAUGHTER OF GOD and I am sure you will make JESUS proud of you.”
gate of the college where competition was to be held. She thanked GOD! Just as she placed her right foot inside, someone pushed her so hard she fell down, and then a strong, sudden jerk to the shoulder made her feel as if her arm was no longer part of her body. For some moments she was unable to figure out the whole situation. But then she realized someone snatched her bag and was running away. She ran like mad after him. “Hey, give me my bag………. Hey you!!!!”, she shouted with full force. Her mobile phone, her money, her brushes, her paints, her registration card- her future, everything was in the bag. “Return my bag, please….!!!!!” Her beseeches were in vain and the boy disappeared like smoke and so did her dreams... “Sara !!...Sara….” A constant knock
Sara, with great anger in her heart, went to meet her. She wanted to shout at her and express all her anger, but she controlled herself. Mrs. James invited her to the Annual Function of her orphanage, which was in two days. She took her bag to the room, locked the door, and wept like a crazy kid. Suddenly she felt a strange warmth in her body. she remembered JESUS’s last words on cross: “Oh Lord! Forgive them, for they know not what they do……..” Her trance was broken when a chirping sparrow came to her window, carrying a fresh leaf in its beak. It reminded her NOAH’S dove. “Lets start with new hope….. just as NOAH did.” A clear voice was heard in her mind. A beautiful smile appeared on her lips. She sent some of her best paintings to the orphanage and was ready to attend the function. She took chocolates and (Continued on page 15)

still incubating. I am married to Rev. Dr. Arit Edumoh and we are blessed with five girls. Our two boys had gone to be with the Lord earlier. Two of our girls are graduated from University and married. We have two grandchildren. Our granddaughter was born six days ago. By the grace of God, we have trained, commissioned over 3000 into different areas of ministry. Our ministry concentrates in Capacity building, human development and leadership development.
Interview With Dr. Ezekiel Edumoh, Part 1 By Apostle Dr. Rebecca Michael The following is an interview between Editor Ap. Dr. Rebecca Michael and Chaplain General Dr. Ezekiel Edumoh Sept. 2010: SHORT BIO: My name is Ezekiel Joshua Uloh Edumoh, born to Late Bishop Joshua Uloh Edumoh of Udung Ukpong Village and Late Deaconess Mary Joshua Uloh Edumoh, nee Mary Robert Attah of Udung Uko Village all in Oron, Akwa Ibom State of Nigeria. I was born in the village of Ebighe Nnwa oro on the 7th of May, 1955. I attended Primary School Okossi where I had my first school living certificate and later attended the Methodist Boys High School, in Oron where I completed my secondary education. I joined the Nigerian Police Force in 1977 and in 1980 I gave my life to Jesus Christ and answered the call to ministry in 1981 and proceeded to The Full Gospel College of Theology in Abak, of south Eastern
State of Nigeria where I graduated with High Honors in 1983 with a Diploma in Theology. I established the Mount Zion College of Theology in Oron in 1983. In 1986 I attended the Calvary College of Theology for an advanced Diploma in Theology. The Lord called me to join a team of Missionaries to go to Owerri in Eastern Nigeria to establish the Wesley International Bible College now African Theological Seminary. In 1991 I bagged a Bachelorâ€˜s Degree in Theology and in 1992 I gained admission to Wesley Biblical Seminary, Jackson MS for a Masters in Christian Education. I returned to Nigeria in 1994 with the degree and the Lord gave us the vision for the present ministry Wholesome Words Mission International In. This ministry comprises of Grace Bible Institute & Seminary (GBIS), Grace Missionary Chapel (GMC), International Christian Corps & Chaplaincy (ICCC) and the Grace Fulfillment University (GFU)
We are currently developing our campus. Our Library needs about 3000 more theological books to add to what we already have to boost our degree programs. We are raising fund now to replace the roof of our main building before the 2011 rainy season. We also plan to raise a 100 bed apartment for the students who come from distant places to Calabar. Our major plan for the future is to make the Grace Fulfillment University a reality. This will give sound university level education to our Pastors and their children at an affordable cost. We solicit prayers for these projects. Rebecca Michael saysHi Ezekiel! Thank you so much for honouring me with an interview with you today my friend and mentor in Ministry and education. Can you tell us about your roots and background where you are from in Nigeria, Africa that has shaped the course of your life from your youth to where you are now? Ezekiel Edumoh saysYou are welcome Becky, am also honoured to be here today. I am an African proper, born in 1955 to late Bishop J. U. Edumoh, founder and presiding Bishop of the Mount Zion Mission (Continued on Page 17)
Save The Children By Nina B. Marino, RN, LNC
Note: This article is not a specific condemnation of any individual pastor, youth minister, or leader. This article seeks to inform and educate, and cause people to think. It is not a statement against any individual’s leader in any way. Yet another so-called man of faith (a.k.a. Christian minister) is in the headlines for the sexual abuse and misconduct of “our children.” Yes, I said, “our children”...wait. I should rephrase that to say, “God’s children.” Does anyone out there see the contradiction in all these incidents? Ministers, church, priests, abuse, molestation...? This is not an article for the faint of heart. Some may find it harsh, but the truth can be harsh. It is revealing and has its value in helping us face our issues, to come out of the darkness, and change our lives. Over the past several years, the lamp has come out from under the bed to reveal to us the heinous use of children that is going on behind closed doors. It has been revealed to us in churches, religions, cults, sects, and the like. God’s children are being used, persecuted, and scarred for life by those who call themselves “leaders of God.” Yes, we have heard it all.
We know about it. They will be dealt with, etc. What about you out there? Yes, you people out there. Mothers, fathers, grandparents, families and friends. This is for you and about you. What are you doing? For whatever reason, you are giving God’s children to pedophiles. With all the publicity and information out there, you continue to give to pedophiles. Why do you continue to bring your children and families to an institution for sacrificing - and then covering up - its use of children for abuse purposes? Is it because it could never happen to your children? Is it because your so-called religious leader is trusted within your community? Is it because you live in denial of the truth? Why do you allow your children to go alone or go on overnight camping trips with ministers, pastors, etc.? Is it because you’re too busy to take them? Is it because you don’t like outings? Just what is the reason children are continually allowed to go with labeled people because they are part of the church community? How could you risk your child’s well being over a camping trip? I know they will jump up and down, scream and yell, and say, “Everyone else is
going!” There is such a word as “NO.” It really is good for children to learn that life does not offer them everything they want. Better yet, you as a parent, go along on this so-called Christian-based activities. Just because an activity is based from a church, ministry, or the like does not mean motives are pure. I don’t have to defend that statement. History proves it to be correct. Parent your children. Don’t say yes because Christian is attached to someone’s name or title. The damage being done cannot be repaired. It will stay with the child into adulthood, even until death. Some never recover enough to go on with their lives. It is quite offensive that the societal population cannot be trusted with its children. Maybe as a parent, a guardian, or caretaker we have to learn to say no in order to protect our children. Children need more than love, food, and a roof over their heads. They need to be protected from those in the society who would do them harm. The term Christian is not a guarantee of a safe person for your child to be with. Stop giving away “God’s children.” Trust only in your Heavenly Father for the child to be alone with. Nina B.

Woman, Define Yourself! Woman of God, do you know who you are?
A product of society is the ambiguous defi nition of its women. Women allow themselves to be defined by all sorts of things: by men, by society as a whole, by other women, by our families, and by our accomplishments; but seldom do women realize that such definitions harm the self-worth, image, and potential of women. In this worldrenown teaching, Apostle Dr. Lee Ann provides women with a powerful message from God: it is time to define ourselves by Godâ€™s standards rather than those of the world.

All Things Work Together For The Good (Continued from page 10) and sweets for the children. Mrs. James was very happy to see her. She met the boy who snatched her bag and gave him some sweets. The boy started weeping and told her that he did this because of some stupid game. “It’s okay. We all make mistakes and the thing is we should learn form our mistakes. I know you have learned, and I have, too. So forget everything.” While saying these words, she felt a strange calm. She turned around when Mrs. James introduced her to the chief guest, Mr. Smith. Before Sara could speak, Mr. Smith started conversation. “Ms. Sara, I have seen your paintings. They are simply awesome. Your brush makes pictures come alive.” She passed a smile. “How good are you at packing your bag?” Mr. Smith asked. “What?” Sara asked, surprisingly.
“Well, I am afraid if you are not, then you would lose the chance to study at “ROYAL INSTITUTE OF ARTS, LONDON”, he smiled. “I am one of the directors of the college and recently we launched a programme to sponsor good artists all over the world. I am certainly recommending your name. I hope you would like to come…… “
Celebrating great women in history
He extended his hand towards her. She, with her amazed eyes, stared at him and suddenly in her mind, a flashback occurred:
Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley (1759-1797) Mary Wollstonecraft was one of the first women to advocate for women’s rights on a large scale and in a large way. She grew up unfavored in her family, with her brother the obvious favorite, and the expectation she was to cook, clean, and tend house for her life ambitions. She worked as a paid companion starting at 19 and by the age of 21, rescued her sister from a miserable marriage and worked as a governess. She resolved she would never marry because it would force her to turn over all her assets and property to the legal rights of her husband. In her career, she wrote the semi-autobiographial novel, Maria, at the age of 28. She lived in London and advocated tirelessly for the rights of women and children, as the women’s movement was far ahead in Europe. Beginning with the French Revolution, Mary also grew interested in politics. She authored
A Vindication of the Rights of Men, and then followed up with A Vindication of the Rights of Women. Beginning in 1972, Mary Wollstonecraft began taking up negative relationships with men, including married men. She ran a certain course for several years and eventually had her daughter, Fanny, in 1794. In 1797, Mary married William Godwin. They had a child, Mary Shelly, who became the author of Frankenstein. She got an infection in childbirth and died in September 1797. Her husband wrote the book, Memoirs of the Author of the Vindication of the Rights of Women, in her honor. Quotable quote: “If women be educated for dependence; that is, to act according to the will of another fallible being, and submit, right or wrong, to power, where are we to stop? Strengthen the female mind by enlarging it, and there will be an end to blind obedience.” - Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly

When A Family Member Rejects Christ (And Rejects You, Too) (Continued from page 4) prayed for us, believed in us, never gave up on us, and walked with us as our friends. Don’t forget the important element of genuinely seeking the best for others and making yourself a good friend. When we become someone’s friend, we seek what is best for them beyond what we may want for them. Patience indicates true spiritual desire for change. Impatience indicates a desire to get someone to change because that’s what you want them to do. In being patient with others, the Lord reveals to you about yourself and your own needed areas of growth and change.
Follow God’s lead on this issue - not your own As I started to examine earlier, it is very possible God may operate through you to start the process of conversion in your relatives, but not use you to finish it. God may ask you to continue in prayer, but back off with your relative. Trust God enough to follow where He leads on this matter and do not turn things into an ego issue. It’s no accident the Gospel of Thomas, verse 82, says, “He who is near Me is near the fire...” (TOB) The fire of God is consuming and powerful...but not everyone can stand the heat! That heat refines, purifies, and brings change. Bringing Jesus to your relatives is going to cause change. It will forever change how your relatives view you, especially if they don’t follow the prompting of the Holy Spirit. That change in dynamics can not only be scary, it can be downright unappealing. If it’s not your job to finish the job, don’t be angry about that. Seek God and follow His will, and love your relatives (I said love, not annoy) while God sends someone else in their life to participate in or finish the work.
Don’t make a relative’s lack of conversion a personal failure Remember the big picture and the many people you touch in your life with the power of God. If God is prompting you to stand in the spiritual gap for your relatives, follow that...but remember God knows what the end result will be before
the matter even begins. Sometimes God has reasons other than the obvious for placing a matter on our hearts. If you run into a situation of rejection, remember your family is rejecting themselves out of a wonderful relationship with the Most High God. They are also rejecting themselves right out of a wonderful relationship with you as their relative. As hard as it is, a family member does not reject you because you “evangelized wrong.” Opening anyone’s eyes about the truth can sometimes cause them to flee because you represent the truth. Follow the leading of the Lord for how to handle your situations, and let Him guide you to the best outcome for all involved.
Look at the bigger picture the family of God! What is the real reason you so sincerely seek to evangelize your family? Is it because you don’t know how to function without them? Is it because you desire to have an impact on their lives? Do you want to undo a stereotypical role you grew up with? Are you afraid to be on your own in faith? Do you want your family to transform itself into the one you always dreamed you would have? One of the biggest reasons evangelizing relatives becomes complicated lies in the fact that we tag so much on family and concepts about family. Sometimes we think if we can get our family saved, we can get something we’ve wanted out of them for our entire lives. We are seeking their conversion through the Kingdom, not seeking first the Kingdom. In other words, family is becoming an idol. In this pursuit, we fail to recognize we are ignoring God’s Kingdom and the multitude of other souls that need to come into God’s Kingdom. One of the things I’ve come to most appreciate about the Kingdom of God is the way God has set us all in a family. My natural family is never going to be what I would want them to be for myself. They are never going to be able to meet the needs I have because it’s simply not who they are. But God has set us in a family full of open doors, love, hope, and truth to provide for us what we each need. While biological family can be wonderful, we should never ignore the Kingdom of God in pursuit of biological family members or biological family needs.
God has given us spiritual brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, grandmothers and grandfathers, and lots and lots of friends, that we may be comforted and supported on our journey. Even though we may not ever receive what we had hoped from our biological families, we can rest assured, God has placed us in His spiritual family that will never, ever pass away.
Strengthening the inner being In Christ, God has given us everything we need to stand as competent witnesses for Him. Even though we may face rejection, we should be comforted in knowing we have the Lord on our side. After all, He is our true Father, Abba, truly working for us and bringing us to a place of love and growth in Him. No matter what we are going through with our natural families, may we all be comforted by the words of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians 3:14-16: “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, of Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, that He would grant unto you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with His might by His Spirit in the inner man.” (KJV) Apostle Dr. Lee Ann B.

Ezekiel Edumoh saysI attended the Methodist Boys High School, Oron and my first job was with the Nigerian Po-lice Force, where I worked in different formations until I resigned in 1981 at the State Police Headquarters at the State Investigation Department. When the Lord gave me a vision for the Chaplaincy, my police experience came into play greatly. It is now I realize the reason God allowed me to spend some years in the Police Force. It was meant to help shape my leadership precision for the ICCC.
