The Belief Concept In Sierra Leone
RELIGION > What The Bible Say
Posted by REV. PAUL BALA SAMURA on May 24, 2010, 09:08
What does it mean to believe on God or someone or something? I clued my ears to The SLBC Television on April 27th, on our 49th Independence Day, when I heard varied evaluative statements of Sierra Leone since independence, 1961from the panelists. It is sad to note that 90% of what was said was the negative aspect of Sierra Leone and a postulation that Sierra Leone

But for journalistic purposes the question should have been stated: Which way Christianity?  That is the thrust of the question.  ‘Jesus said to him “I am the way, and the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me”.  Sad to say THE way has been interpreted by some denominations or sects as A Way.  This has resulted in so many ways, some direct, others indirect and still others leading the flock astray

Such behaviour of these church leaders has led to the extreme poverty in this country, how could a poor man be going to church for almost 4 days per week and donating money without job or daily income, hoping for a businessman ( leader of the church) to perform miracle for him to fulfil his dreams. Because of the high level of poverty we the people of Sierra Leone do believe in hope more than any other nationals in the world

Sierra Leone is one of the most religious and tribal tolerance state in the sub-region. In this small West African state, members from the two main religions, Islam and Christianity interact with each other in work places, academic institutions and at the community level. This interaction is so cozy to an extent that, a member of one religion could find a partner from the other

The relationship between Muslims and Christians in post-colonial Sierra Leone has been a model of interfaith harmony.  Sierra Leone constitutes an instructive case study of Muslim- Christian relationship on the African continent. Islam came to western Sudan in the 8th Century and by the 16th Century or earlier, it had reached the shores of Sierra Leone from Mali via Guinea.





Why Call Crucifixion Friday :The Day Christ Was Nailed On The Cross ‘Good’?
RELIGION > What The Bible Say
Posted by on Apr 9, 2009, 08:52
Many Christians have been wondering why the Friday on which our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ was crucified was called “Good Friday”.  And this name has gained more recognition than the others namely, Black Friday and Golden Friday. That said, it is necessary to know the background of the event for a better understanding of why these things were so. Incidentally events leading to the crucifixion and many others are in fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy



Politics Minus Religion Equals Catastrophe

Posted by John Jusu on Mar 31, 2009, 10:53
Quite recently, there had been talks that the religious community in Sierra Leone is attempting to mix their religious beliefs with politics. A columnist in the Standard Newspaper, writing on the issue “Religion and Politics: The Unknown Matrimony and Danger” said that such an attempt would bring chaos and instability to the nation. He cited Bible and Quran sources to support the argument that it was God’s intention to separate religion and politics and that Christians and Muslims today should maintain that status quo

But it also is steeped in spiritual history.  Today Sierra Leone seems to be forgotten by most people in the world. But God has not forgotten them.

Conclusion of The Month of Ramadan The Purpose of Zakatul-Fittr
RELIGION > What the Koran Say
Posted by Sheikh Alie Kallay on Sep 28, 2008, 23:59
Every Muslim is required to pay Zakatul-Fittr at the conclusion of the month of Ramadan as a token of thankfulness to God for having enabled him to observe fasts. Its purpose is to purify those who fast from any indecent act or speech and to help the poor and needy.[1] This view is based upon the hadith which reads, “The Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, enjoined Zakat-ul-Fitr on those who fast to shield them from any indecent act or speech, and for the purpose of providing food for the needy. It is accepted as Zakah for the one who pays it before the `Eid prayer, and it is sadaqah for the one who pays it after the prayer.”[2] Al-Qaradawi comments on this hadith by saying that there are two purposes: one is related to the individual; for completion of his fast and compensation for any shortcomings in his acts or speech



What Christians Know About Islam?
RELIGION > What the Koran Say
Posted by on Sep 16, 2008, 01:05
Do Muslims know more about Christianity than Christians know about Islam? In other words, do Muslims know more about Jesus and the Bible than Christians know about the Prophet Mohamed and the Quran? Christianity and Islam share a common origin. Judaism is the parent religion of both and all three-practice monotheism. Monotheism is the belief in one God.  Judaism is strictly practiced by the Jews
