I'm sure some of you have heard that saying before, but before you jump to conclusions let me say this has nothing to do with women but certain kinds of dudes. If you look beyond the scummy surface of that saying is the deeper meaning that a man should never forget those who were with him during the hard times and toss them away for loose thrills.
What I am referring to are some papers (it's been a long time since I used that word) dudes who find it hard to do anything for one of their guy "pals" but once anyone who wears a bra and panties asks for the same thing the dude bends over backwards to do it. And the thing is that it isn't that he has interest in her but just that she is female and somewhere deep within he needs her approval. Woe unto you if this is the kind of guy you are waiting to pick you up for a night on the town, he will stand you up the very first minute some girls call him asking for a ride. This is also the character you go to a club with and the minute you step in he will disappear to hunt for gals, only to come back when he is broke and needs a drink and/or a ride home.
And ladies before you jump down my throat I do know you also know some women who do very little for their fellow women but will do anything for a man who so much as looks at them. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with having close friends of the opposite gender but in my opinion usually the closest friends you will ever have will be from your same gender, they are the ones you will learn the most from and have been with you from when you were a kid till now. Those of you who are guilty know yourselves........
I'm sure with the tremors that have been occuring in Kenya, certain men of God are having a field day preaching armageddon. Has that Proffesor dude who "prophesied" it popped up yet to vindicate himself? Well in my opinion and from the good old day when I used to be very spiritual I did some study and came to the conclusion that the office of the Prophet ended with John the Baptist (that is open for discussion) because the main role of the Prophets was the prophesy the coming of The Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. This is not to say that the gift of Prophesy did not remain, it still did but if you read the Bible you will notice that prophesies more often that not were straight and to the point. The "prophesies" that you hear nowadays from televangelists are so vague and easy to interpret your own way. For example if the earthquake prophesy was that Kenya was going to be hit is it that the Professor misheard the country that would be hit or maybe God told him that it was going to be a tremor and he decided to upgrade it to an earthquake? Or maybe we have a Jonah situation where God decided to forgive us and rain his wrath down on Tanzanians instead (no I have nothing against Tanzanians that is just an illustration). Anyway who would have ever thought The Acolyte would be having a discourse on the office of The Prophet. All opinions are welcome, as long as you aren't damning me to hell of course! Nice weekend people!
