    You have been missing alot then. That beautiful feeling of having someone you can always talk to and confide in without being judged?? The numerous blessings and peace that comes with it?? I don’t even know how to explain it.
    I hope you get to believe Him even more from this moment and I pray He perfects all that concerns you.☺☺

    Who said that? Na only you waka come? There is GOD ooo. Stop deceiving yourself. That you got an award is not your RIGHT cos many other actresses did the same thing you did, but God showed you mercy. See is as a PRIVILEGE and give thanks to HIM.

      God get penis? Oh yes he must because he over powered and impregnated a teenager without her consent. And is very patriarchal.
      But maybe her God is a she, afterall, Gods are figments of our imagination and her she God rewards the godless fickle crowd with gongs instead of doing something more useful like not allowing kids to be born into abusive homes.

      @Splendind
      Sorry, overshadowed, not overpowered but same difference, either way, no consent.
      “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee:
      Luk1:35
      My own God is very merciful, certainly not the kind who has a penchant for flooding or burning people for trivial matters.
      .
      @seriously –
      many acknowledge an ultimate reality/being/power, howbeit not all consider said being to the God of classical theism.

    This is interesting, not because she doesnt believe in God. So deep down in her heart, she knows there’s a higher power for her to be conscious of thanking “her” tonight after her win. Athiests crack me up, during triumphs, trials they switch up to pray or thank a higher power.Stop playing yourself and just accept.
    Congrats to her.

      They do know that there is God but they don’t want to live life being answerable to anybody or ‘higher power’ so they try to pretend like there is no God

    There is no God. Y’all have just been brainwashed.

    Am sure moments before one’s death are even more overwhelming to an ailing atheists than the feeling of receiving an Emmy award … am sure some atheist acknowledge the existence of God in like manner when overcome by the reality of the finality of all things mundane before dying ….

    Thandie Newton should be allowed to believe whatever it is she wants to believe, same as those who believe in God. To each their own. God truly has no gender in my opinion. Man, made God in man’s image, not the other way around, if not we won’t think of God the way we do. ” A man sat in the clouds with a big book of life, answering all our prayers and favouring one over the other”

    The white man who gave you this mysterious being seems to be running far away from this being, it should make you all think twice. Why not seek the true creator in the beauty that is the universe as opposed to belittling this divine energy to just one who answers prayers.

    Also, those casting her away for her own beliefs- guess what? She has eaten and will keep eating. She is not going to battle power cuts, today, tomorrow or anytime soon. She doesn’t know you! She’s beautiful and has a beautiful family, she seems like someone who won’t judge based on skin colour or ethnicity. She seems okay to me. Are you okay?

    By the way, I believe in God and I am a Christian ( a follower of Christ’s teachings, bearing in mind Christ never formed a religion), although not a blinded one, not a myopic one, most definitely an objective one. I love all, because all evolved from that divine energy that is the Universe.

      Are you smoking something? ….so you believe the universe is the true creator but then say you are a Christian. God may or may not have a gender but mind you Jesus said we should pray to Our Father who art in heaven….not to the universe….

      So uncouth! Why the personal insults? No, I am not smoking something. I’ve actually had a nice dinner and some pudding. To each their own. Enjoy the amazing world in which we live in. Love and light to you.

      FYI Christianity in Africa precedes ‘the white man’.

      If the whie man who ‘gave’ us democracy starts running away from it, should we all run too?
