From Jennifer Abadaike, Lagos
There was enough to read and talk about in the past few weeks when Bruce Jenner came public with the transformed Caitlyn Jenner. The attention she got was overwhelming. While many Nigerians will stay on the argument on how the “Oyinbo” is responsible for all the evil in the world, just at the backyard, similar specie of tree has grown.
He was born Dapo Adaralegbe and became known while in the Obafemi Awolowo University, due to his strange disposition to everything. Dapo was eventually rusticated from the University where he was studying law because of his homosexuality.
Years after, Dapo became Stephanie Rose after a transgender surgery. Now, Stephanie has taken her thoughts to facebook to share her thoughts on the existence of God.
Stephanie who has also written a book title “Nobody goes to Heaven because Nobody goes to Hell fire,” lavishly quoted from the bible in order to buttress her new belief. Yes, she actually quoted the bible.
“I wonder how many of them (those who read the bible) know that God is quoted many times in the bible admitting that he is infact evil. I will list those passages below:
Isaiah 45:7; “I form the light and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil, I the lord do all these things”
Exodus 32:14; “and the lord repented of the evil which he thought to do unto his people.”
Joshua 23:15; “Therefore it shall come to pass, that as all good things are come upon you, which the lord bring upon you all evil things.”
Judges 9:23; “then God sent AN EVIL spirit.”
1Samuel 16:14; “But the Spirit of the LORD departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the LORD troubled him.”
2 Samuel 12:11; “Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out of thine own house”
1 Kings 9:9; “…therefore hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
1 Kings 14:10; “…therefore, behold, I will bring evil upon the house of Jeroboam
2 Kings 6:33; “…Behold, this evil is of the LORD;
2 Kings 21:12 “Therefore thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle.
Stephanie Rose penned down twelve other similar verses from the Bible then continued.
“The reason Satan gets the blame is solely so that the Christians can convince themselves that it’s not god doing it. But if you claim that god is not capable of committing evil acts then you are “giving false witness” and committing “blasphemy” against god and his character.
“Now I ask you, why do you feel that this “god” is deserving of worship? Even if you believe that he does exist, after all he has done and all he admits, why would you want to devote your life to him? Of all the men who have lived not one of them can come close to the evil that this god is. No one has caused as much death and destruction that this god claims to have done.
“It’s funny, the relationship that people have with this god reminds me of battered wife syndrome. He’ll beat you into submission, threaten you with terrible punishments if you don’t comply, convince you that you deserve that horrible treatment because your bad deep inside, then tell you he only does it because he loves you. Actually it’s not funny after all. It’s pretty damn sad.
“Which ‘other uncontrollable devil’ is humanity searching for when the creator and inventor of evil has declared itself? The position of evil cannot be checked because the same God is the creator and inventor of all evil.
“Evil started from the same hopeless and foolish God because such useless and senseless God is evil. They do not go to Heaven and they do not go to Hell fire, the same God is the exact devil that deceived all religions about an untrue Heaven and untrue Hell fire!
“Hell fire is a fallacy of imagination. NO BODY GOES TO HELL FIRE.”
Transgender is becoming a common trend that seems to directly connect to civilization and the controversy finds no end despite legal approval it has from many governments in Europe and America.
In Africa or most parts of the continent, gender is still seen as a decision above humanity but with Stephanie Rose formerly Dapo Adaralegbe finding a voice who knows what next.
