Christianity or Secular Humanism (Part 1)

You founded a company and retain a position as Executive Chairman of the Board. You have controlling shares. You’ve crafted a detailed mission & constitution for the organisation and have committed both to the capable hands of Management to execute. Unfortunately, Management consistently ignores your mission, breaks the rules of your corporate charter and repeatedly[…]

Social Media Arguments

Let me explain something about the quality or lack therein of many social media arguments. They usually go like this: – You have minimal facts about an issue but post, share or comment because it’s trending, sounds sensational or supports an already existing bias. – When you are corrected (and facts are presented), you do[…]

Sex & Fame

There are a few things on my mind today. Sex and fame are opportunistic. They come when you least expect them. It stands to reason then, that you shouldn’t wait to decide what to do at the point when either is offered to you. You should develop parameters for your decision-making a long time beforehand.[…]

The Value of Mistakes

When I was younger, I forgot a kettle on the cooker overnight. By morning, it was red hot and sparkling. All the external soot and internal sediments had burned off completely. I never told anyone. I switched off the cooker and thanked God that the house hadn’t burn down. I knew if my mom found[…]

The Wisdom of God

I don’t know a lot about the worship of God. Perhaps those who lead praise & worship are on more intimate terms with God than I am. I also know little about the fearfulness of God. Pastors probably do, seeing that God is both Father and Boss to them. They must get disciplined more often than I do. My[…]

Ready to Make Friends with God?

To build a relationship with God, you must first rid yourself of your fear. The fear of the Lord is not the same thing as being fearful of God. To build a relationship with God, you must also forgive yourself. In the Gospels, Jesus used to say, “Your sins are forgiven.” This is because it’s difficult to build a[…]

A Story About Power

This is a true story, as told by a friend. There was once a young man in University of Ilorin who was in love with a young lady. The lady didn’t feel the same way and so, she kept him in the friend zone. He became a confidante or best friend of sorts. She later[…]

Hanging out with God

When I talk to people about God, I don’t do the “Jesus is the Son of God” spiel or try to explain doctrine. Doctrinal issues are so technical that even Nicodemus, a teacher of the Law found them difficult to grasp. Paul, who did his best to explain them also intellectually confounded Peter. God is[…]

Social Media Structuring & Ministry

I was privileged to speak at the ministry training workshop of Global Impact Church. Here are my slides from the event. I also shared a sample social media content calendar and task list. Church Social Media Structuring & Ministry from Subomi Plumptre

Go and Marry

Sometimes on Nigerian social media, when a man and a woman have a verbal altercation and the man gets angry, he hurls the statement, “Stop Arguing. Go and Marry.”(especially if the woman is single). He seems to suggest that the woman has too much time on her hands because she’s unmarried, or that she lacks[…]
