Please read through it carefully and read the truth in response to these false teachings.
Yahshua said: I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. JOHN 14:6
These false teachings were sent around the world by ANTHONY ROBBINS ORGANIZATION.
Here we go now with my responses.
REMEMBER! MY RESPONSES
ONE. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully. (FALSE)
God did not say you should love your neighbour more than yourself.
[Mat 19:19 Honor thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. ]]
TWO. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other. (FALSE)
Does that mean any woman I love talking to like my sisters, I should marry?
[Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.]
THREE. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want. (FALSE)
Believe every word of the Lord and thou shall be saved. Walk in all His ways and thy days shall be prolonged.
[Deu 5:33 Ye shall walk in all the ways which the LORD your God hath commanded you, that ye may live, and that it may be well with you, and that ye may prolong your days in the land which ye shall possess.]
FOUR. When you say, 'I love you ,' mean it. (FALSE)
When I say to an idol I love you, should I mean it?
[Deu 10:12 [….. and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,]
FIVE. When you say, 'I'm sorry,' look the person in the eye. (FALSE)
Looking into the eye of someone to say I’m sorry doesn’t mean anything at all. But true repentance comes from within.
[2Co 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.]
SIX. Be engaged at least six months before you get married. (False). The Bible did not say that. Marriage is even not a prerequisite to salvation.
[Luk 20:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage: ]
SEVEN. Believe in love at first sight. (FALSE)
When I see a demon should I believe at first sight and love it? It ‘s only God’s Love at first sight THAT saved us.
[1Jn 4:9 In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. ]
EIGHT. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.(FALSE)
You have the right to laugh at the devil’s dream. For none of the devil’s dream can manifest against you a child of God so go on and laugh at the devil because through a dream our saviour was conceived and born to save us.
[Mat 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife; for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. ]
NINE. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely. (FALSE)
It’s not worth dying for anything of this world because Christ came to die for us because God loved us. Any passion you have in life must be towards doing God’s will.
TEN.. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling. (FALSE)
The battle we fight belongs to the Lord.
[Exo 14:14 The LORD shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.]
ELEVEN. Don't judge people by their relatives. (FALSE) Does it mean you can judge the people on other terms except by their relatives? The Word of God says :
[ Mat 7:1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. ]
TWELVE. Talk slowly but think quickly. (FALSE)
Not all humans are created the same. Some are likely to be hyper and make a lot of sense and some may even be very slow but full of junk. Therefore the right answer to this is:
[Pro 16:32 He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.]
THIRTEEN. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, 'Why do you want to know?' (FALSE)
Answering a question with a question rather shows disrespect and may lead to strife.
[Pro 15:18 A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.]
FOURTEEN. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk. (TRUE)
[Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ]
FIFTEEN. Say 'bless you' when you hear someone sneeze. (TRUE) Only let positive things come out from your mouth.
[Psa 145:21 My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name forever and ever.]
SIXTEEN. When you lose, don't lose the lesson ! (FALSE) When you loose, go to God in prayer and He will direct your path to recovery of your lost fortune)
[1Ki 20:25 And number thee an army, like the army that thou hast lost, horse for horse, and chariot for chariot: and we will fight against them in the plain, and surely we shall be stronger than they.]
SEVENTEEN. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions. (RELATIVE)
[(Rom 6:16) Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? ]
EIGHTEEN. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.( FALSE) when great friendship is at the expense of your life, you must let it go.
[Pro 22:24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: ]
NINETEEN. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it. (FALSE)
The Bible tells us to repent. When you try by your own efforts to correct your mistakes in life, you will never move forward. Repent and move on. It’s for repentance that Christ came and not for correction.
[Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. ]
TWENTY. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice. (FALSE)
It’s pretencious and deceptive when you are in a bad mood or angry about someone and pretend on the phone you are happy about that person is considered deceptive and evil. Let your true feelings be known.
[Php 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.]
TWENTY-ONE. Spend some time alone.
[Gen 2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.]
Now, here's the FUN part!
There is no THREAT by saying you should forward it to a lot of people to experience a miracle in your life.
If you want to spread it around, do so in believing that you are spreading the message of God and NOT in expectation of a miracle.
Believe me; your life is already a miracle because God chose you to be created in His image and likeness.
Believe in the Lord Yahshua (Jesus Christ) and give your life to Him.

I woke up up 3 am GMT today November 14 2007 and turn on my TV to watch ANDERSON COOPER 360 on CNN.
I was stunned to hear the analysis of Dr. Deepak Chopra and Dr. Oz on the issue of "PRAYER & HEALING"
Fascinating enough these two great intellectuals of our time from different scientific backgrounds admitted the evidence of effectual prayer and its evidence of working to heal the sick.
Deepak Chopra spoke on the topic in refering to energies around the human being and Dr. Oz believed Prayer gives a sense of communal sanity and reassurance that make a sick person feel more loved and accepted and eventually makes him/her whole.
Is beyond scientific analysis when you talk about PRAYER.
It's about your personal conviction and acceptance that there is a greater power than yourself.
When the first caller on the show narrated his personal experience with prayer and healing after praying (Psalms 51:10) "Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me".
It seems as if i was woken up by God to watch the show because i had so much trauma about people having fights about whether Prayer is relevant in a scientific world of today.
My friend Nana Otu yesterday challenged the quest by the Governor of the State of Georgia,Purdue advocating for the residents of his state to pray for rain to avert a the serious drought.
Nana Otu thought it was irrelevant for a State Governor to ask for prayer instead of being proactive and realistic about solving the issue at hand.
Maybe Governor Purdue believes in prayer and has seen miracles born through prayer therefore his wish that all residents join him.
Watching Anderson Cooper really brought me back to the same question of whether i need to bother myself about the isue of prayer when someone challenges my thoughts.
Deepa Chopra in one of his examples during the program couldn't boldly claim there is heaven but rather said wherever people go when they die...
I thought that was funny because probably he is in denial or just wanted to be politcally correct.
Whichever reason he may have it's not relevant to an individual's personal belief.
Maybe there should be more than a discussion on TV to really prove the effectivenesss of Prayer.

"WHEN ELEPHANTS ARE BEING SLAUGHTERED IN THE THOUSANDS, HOW COULD ONE NOTICE THE DEATH OF A HOUSE RAT?"
Anyone from the British council in Accra, Ghana should dare to answer me....
Was it just an appalling display of stupidity, ignorance, or spitefulness on Friday November 2 2007 @ the British Council in Accra or JUST a clean cut FRAUD?
As advertised,(if even they did) it was the night to select three TOP FASHION DESIGNERS and ACCESSORIES DESIGNERS for LONDON FASHION WEEK (1st Prize), SOUTH AFRICAN FASHION WEEK (2nd Prize) & NIGERIA FASHION WEEK (3rd Prize) under the title flagship called
"INTERNATIONAL YOUNG FASHION ENTREPRENEUR CATWALK PRESENTATION"
Mediocrity was at its best from the onset of this particular show where publicity was very very minimal to say the least.
The second sign of mediocrity depicted by the organizers was the location:
The backyard of the British council in Accra where a thin red carpet was crisscrossed as a runway on a pavement.(Is this where you select a designer to represent the whole nation?)
The grandest (if the word even exists) catastrophe of all was the panel of judges which comprised of Multichioce GH. PR Manager Anne Sackey, Paa John (Events Manager or something irrelevant like that), Ivana a "Fashion Designer" amongst others.
These folks have no freaking clue about what fashion entrepreneurship really is about because of their choice of the three top winners.
However, the Host MC of the night, Kofi Otchere Darko was fantastic as usual.He
handled the mess of the British Council to save them from further shame.
1st position NANA ASIHENE,
2nd Position OBJ (Accessories designer) and
3rd position went to another mediocre jewelry designer.
What is my "beef" you may ask?
My capital "BEEF" is that, when British council decides or decided to organize and select entrepreneurs to represent a whole country like my motherland Ghana, i believe it is an enormous task and obligation to be very analytical and very fair to publicize the event appropriately so as to garner maximum support for all participants nationwide.
In doing so, the show could claim it has or had National support for the eventual winners who will hold high the flag of Ghana.
In this case the British council FAILED MISERABLY.
Another case of my "BEEF" is the ISSUE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND AUTHENTICITY.
According to the profiles of the seven finalists, it was very obvious that the two most industrious and authentic designers were "KWESI NTI" and "ROYAL DENNIS" who every “fashionista” in Ghana can vouch for.
Interesting enough these two great designers of our contemporary generation were totally sidelined by these ignorant judges.
The Red Carpet placed on the pavement as a runway had no respect whatsoever as was evident when guests were crisscrossing the red carpet whilst there were models also on the other end of the red carpet.
Not once, but four times i counted one particular woman who had no shame nor decency, walked across the carpet. This woman's friends also crossed once each and also a young lady who was serving drinks also crossed several times.
Can't the British Council of Ghana afford to put up an elevated runway just for this show at least?
To this I say a BIG SHAME ON YOU ALL.
When "elephants" like "KWESI NTI" and "ROYAL DENNIS" are being slaughtered in our own hands and in our own country, how could we motivate the house rats (up & coming designers) to move into the forest?
ANSWER ME... BRITISH COUNCIL OF GHANA.
Can these selected designers be able to represent Ghana well on the International circus?
Do they have the capacity to contain commercial merchandizing?
However disappointing the show was, there was vindication for one of the two favorites; ROYAL DENNIS.
The next day at the MISS MALAIKA pageant he showcased his great handiworks on the bodies of the 10 final beauty contestants.
It was a sight to watch how a gifted talent and very humble gentleman put so much hard work and dedication to the crafting or gorgeous clothes and yet some have ignorant few have the guts to insult his creativity.
If i was the Director of the British council in Accra, I would have been really ashamed and disappointed by the organizers and the judges of the International Young Fashion Entrepreneur Catwalk show.
Go to hell i say to those judges.
Kudos to the hardworking young designers of Ghana and Kudos to Kwesi Nti and Royal Dennis in particular who stayed true to their integrity?
Sometimes it must take the courage of a Buffalo to overcome the hungry Serengeti lion.
Maybe when wrong people are in charge of great ideas abuse is inevitable. I really don't know what to say more but feel disappointed.
In a case like this.
I pause here with much contempt for the judges in particular and the organizers in general.
SHAME ON YOU ALL

Freedom & Justice is what we Ghanaians claim to stand for...
However politically correct the slogan is, I think we as a nation, people, and culture are hypocrites in fulfiling its principles.
I watched the evening news on wednesday October 31st 2007 on TV3 (very unusual for me to watch local news) where the National Parliament was debating the "misuse" of our national ANTHEMS & COAT OF ARMS.
Accordidng to this "sordid" Member of Parliament whose name was not inscribed on the footage, there should be a new law banning the use of the COAT OF ARMS on private property and also a ban on the use of the National Anthem as ringtones on cell phones.
My assumption is, (if not WAS) that parliament is there to enact laws that will be of national interest . And not for "FRIVOLOUS, PITIFUL USELESS TIME WASTING TALK SESSIONS as most of the parliament sessions are becoming lately.
We have bad road networks in the city coupled with crippling unneccessary vehicular traffic jams, filth everywhere, worse and numerous deficiencies in our nation yet these "TAX SPENDERS" have they uncultured nerves to be wasting time and money debating trivial issues like cell phone ring tones and somebody deciding to show some sense of Patriotism by embassing the Coat of Arms on their private properties.
Ohhh how ridiculous we have become and how sullen our characters have become.
SHAME UNTO PARLIAMENTARIANS WHO WASTE TIME AND MONEY TALKING ABOUT GIBBERISH!!!
Remember Accra is Still a very DARK NATIONAL CAPITAL in the night due to inadequate street lights. Talk about things like this and not such silly ones you take pleasure in.
Remember when you waste too much time to resolve the conflict in a neighbor's house, be assured a spill over into your own backyard soon.
Therefore you guys should tackle the most important issues in our society before it matures into a "contagious cancer" to infect all of us.
Curtailing the use of the Ghana National Anthem and The Coat of Arms even VIOLATES the PRIINCIPLE OF " FREEDOM".
Suck it up MPs and wake to the sweet smell of Amelia Memuna's " HAUSA KOOKO & KOOSAY" that will energize your frozen minds to do due deligence to the office put upon your shoulders.
We don't want you guys to waste our taxes on stupid arguments and topics like cell phone ringtones and a richman's coat of arms metal gate.
SHAME SHAME, SHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!
For me writing makes me liberated therefore i am at peace with my soul.
Go find your Peace also and leave me and my Messiah alone.........
