    And these are people who just said “Happy new Month” three days back. Once again it is a reminder that living a life without Jesus is a useless one, We all need to get in touch with our Saviour Jesus Christ he’s the only way to eternal life. May the souls of the departed rest in peace, Amen

    Perfect example of the extreme side of Religious belief..
    .You supposed to win souls for Christ…now how many have you lost with that insensitive statement…
    Funny you didn’t say anything about the reckless driving of commercial vehicle drivers and the proliferation of Heavy Duty Trucks on our roads.
    RIP to the departed

    Bruno,Candid,and Concerned9a,what exactly did ‘My Opinion’ say wrong?!She/He is trying to talk about how ephemeral life is!Which is why,anyone who is not born again,should give his/her life go Jesus Christ,because it is only in Him that you have hope,after death.I’m not surprised at the way you people reacted though…John 1:5…

    Personally….It didn’t come across like that….it’s all in the phrasing and how you empathize,,,same thing Azuka did wrong with Tiwa…
