  1. The father of a severely jaundiced 14-day-old premature baby who denied the baby life-saving blood transfusion on medical and religious grounds, on Saturday explained his side of the story. Mr Emmanuel Onokpise claimed he and his wife were never informed their child was in any danger of death to the baby due to the weight. The Lagos State Government evacuated the baby via a court order following information from a concerned member of the public informed its Office of the Public Defender that Mr and Mrs Emmanuel Onokpise had, contrary to medical advice, discharged their severely ill baby from hospital after refusing her blood transfusion on religious and medical grounds. Baby Onokpise, who was born on December 18, 2019, is now in an orphanage home. According to the government, the baby’s parents, who were on Medical Insurance with a Health Maintenance Organisation (HMO), “vehemently opposed the blood transfusion” for the baby and took her home, where her condition deteriorated and death was imminent. Onokpise, who responded to enquiries from The Nation via a statement, said he and his wife loved their child and believed in medical intervention to cure ailments. He added that being Jehovah’s witnesses, they also had an obligation to obey Jehovah’s commandment to abstain from blood consumption.

  2. Taking Nigeria as a case study, if you are not a Jehovah’s Witness, you must have heard from some pastors or some other Christians like you about how the Jehovah’s Witnesses teach the wrong gospel. You must have heard them say that they use the wrong Bible. They must have told you to kick them out of your house or never let them in. They might have even told you that listening to them could lead you to Hell Fire. My view about them changed when I related with one of them during an external tutorial class. There was a single guy among the rest in a mixed class of Christians and Muslims. This guy was the only Jehovah’s Witness. We all had a lot of fun bullying him. We made jest of his bag and made jest of the fact that he was a Jehovah’s Witness. Despite all these bullying, he never retaliated. We were still kids back then and our knowledge of the Bible was what we were taught in our different churches. We argued over some verses in the bible and the guy took pains to explain some topics based on what he had been taught. We all shut him down, of course. Years later, I had the opportunity to visit one of their Kingdom Halls. I had read a lot of their FREE publications and I wanted to see what they did there. I was wowed. I have been to many other churches but this Kingdom Hall was different. The surprising part was that after the service, I met this guy again and he was so happy to see me. I was surprised. I thought he would make jest of me and ask why I was there. Instead, he and the other people there showed me love. How are the Jehovah’s Witnesses better Christians than the rest of us?

  3. The annual convention series of Jehovah’s Witnesses in and around the Federal Capital Territory, (FCT) begins this weekend at their Kwali Assembly Hall. A statement issued by the convention organisers say the  theme of convention: “Be Courageous “  is apt at this critical times, adding that “we need courage more than ever at school, at work and when tragedy strikesÂ’Â’. Each weekend, beginning September 14 through December 23, delegates would be spiritually nourished and refreshed, the statement said. The statement made known that the 3-day program consists of 54 presentations that will include talks, audio dramas, interviews, and short videos. Additionally, a feature film entitled, ‘’The Story of Jonah, A Lesson in Courage and MercyÂ’Â’ will be shown on the final day of the convention program. Each day, the morning and afternoon sessions will be introduced by music videos prepared specifically for the convention. The Bible talks and interviews are expected help delegates learn practical ways they  can build courage to face todayÂ’s chaotic world. Also to be enjoyed are various videos where delegates would observe and learn lessons from real people, and even live animals about courage. According to David A. Semonian, a spokesman for JehovahÂ’s Witnesses, states, “When you look at the news today, you can clearly see that people of all ages are dealing with more anxieties and fears than ever before. It takes courage to face these pressures. We welcome everyone to this yearÂ’s convention to benefit from the practical advice thatÂ’s contained in the Bible.” Highlight of the convention program on Sunday, is a Bible discourse with the theme: “The Resurrection Hope Impacts Courage-How?” The convention program would be conducted in English, Nigeria Pidgin, Yoruba, Igbo and the American Sign Language for those with hearing impaired. Meanwhile, thousands of new members are expected to be ordained through water baptism. Source
