    Baba eku ise sir. I found this piece not only interesting but very factual from my personal experience.Born into a Christian family,I was brought up not to question anything about Christianity.But growing up I have discovered a lot of inconsistencies and deceit. People just set up churches for commercial purposes and you dare not raise any issue.You have issues the church cannot guide you.You approach a Babalawo for guidance they tell you eternal fire is awaiting you when you die.
    As a Yoruba man,I am so happy for this write up and hope that our people will not forget their roots.

      Alafia Olamilekan,

      You should study about the religion of your ancestors. To that end I recommend you get the book series, Yoruba Theology I offer on my website. That will give you a significant foundation on our religion.

    Ao, ao, this man, you kill me. Only that I don’t want to qoute any part of the Bible niether the kor-an. But one thing I ask fellow christians and moslems is, what God or gods is in race with the only one God Mawuga segbolisa- Olonru- Almighty God to be jaloused of and to kill other peolpe who turn to follow? Is there any war which is holy? Or we leave the war for God to fight. Let us not to kill ourselves and say God is killing us. Any way my God is not killer God in terms of jalousy. He is Mawuga Segbolisa and his efa- ifa- orunmila. The precher of peace and harmony. Borlu, Borya, Borkitse.
