Sunday In House Gists - Tradition And The Consequences Of Going Against Them...

A tradition can be many things... 
For some, it's food to eat or not to eat. For others, it's faith,whom to serve or not to serve. For many its family, or attires or marriage rites....






In this post, we wanna find out what makes a tradition uniquely African or Nigerian..

    3. It happens somewhere that I know. If a woman cheats on her hubby, she runs mad though she can be cleansed with the blood of new born goat if the husband wants to keep marrying her to avoid madness. Now I ask, is the blood of goat more powerful than the blood of our Lord Jesus Christ which was shed on the cross of Calvary for the remission of our sins?. If you sleep around as a married woman, even nature has a way of dealing with you. If you repent genuinely and confess your sins, the Bible says that everything has become new. Honestly people don't know what Christianity is. They mistake that for religion.

    4. 17:09Your stupidity is something else. So it's ok for a man to cheat, right?

    5. Everything is abt woman what abt d man?
      What happens wen d man cheats?
      Our traditions n customs hav actually made it for d men to be idolized n free to do whatever deynare free to do!
      Woman this, woman that! Meanwhile, its d man dat actually cheats nonstop!
      Thank God d eyes of women hav opened!

  2. In my father's family, we were told we don't eat a particular mushrooms (Olu Ogogo). It's not a common food so it's not something you can get easily to eat. Don't know the consequences of eating them

      So if "caesar" says you should bring human head for sacrifice, you give him human head?
      If Caesar, that your tradition says you should drink blood, you drink blood?
      When you give your life to Satan in this way, there is nothing left to give to God.

      Delete
    2. And if your tradition demands that you sleep with shrine prostitutes as is the case in many
      African communities, you give that to "Caesar?" Please do not prostitute with the Scriptures.

    3. Exactly o. Civilization and religion has made many people to be in one position for a long time. If only they know it's that it's something so little they have to do or not do? I learnt my own lesson the hard way coz none of my parents told me anything, and after mom died I had to figure out a lot myself, or remain in one position.

      I am a Christian,and I never subscribed to this' traditional' beliefs till things started unfolding in my life which I knew nothing of.

      If you have been struggling for something for a long time, baby, financial breakthrough, marriage crisis, getting a spouse etc, please go and find out about yourself, where you come from, and your family. It could be something as easy as killing a chicken, or doing some supplications that is making you suffer which you do not know. Nobody comes out to say how this or that worked for them. Go out and find out people. Please.

      I don't think I understood you at all.
      I told him that he should not give his life to devil and talk about giving to
      God because devils will be in control of his life and he will be serving them.
      What belongs to Caeser from Jesus' explanations is tax
      What belongs to God is tithe
      Check your Scriptures well.

    6. Anon 14:34 I wasn't going to comment on this blog post at all but I have to. Sorry but you are VERRRRRY DECEIVED. Kai! Which one is you're a Christian but...? If God be God, serve Him. If not, face where you are really facing. Stop pretending there's a middle ground cos there really isn't. You cannot serve more than one power at a time, no matter the eye/lip service you do.

      Like I told someone, "Either the Word of God is true, or it's not. Either the Blood and the Name of Jesus work, or they don't!" What's all this mess fgs?

  4. I am a citizen of heaven and the traditions of heaven is the Holy Scriptures.
    Proof:
    Look at Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. AGAINST SUCH THINGS THERE IS NO LAW.

    Did you see that? If you call yourself a Christian, a believer in Jesus with the above fruits of the
    Spirit in your life...And you still submit to "traditions or laws" of "do not taste, do not handle, ..." as in your
    communities, WHEN these laws go contrary to the teachings of Christ,
    you have denied him.
    For e.g., the law of God says that
    we should not shave our head for the dead (Deut. 14, Rom.6:13 etc.) but you do that; scrape your hair when someone dies...you see you have gone contrary to Christ?
    When they burn that hair or cast it into the grave, you have submitted part of your body to death and that is a covenant. You will write chronicles wondering what is pursuing you and scattering things all around you.
    Are you a Christian, do you stand up for Christ?

      Ahaaa, yes Jesus taught men to pay bride price for their wives and do traditional
      wedding like that one he attended in Cana in Galilee John 2.
      Again, he paid for his bride (the Church) with his blood (Acts 20:28)
      and we were told that marriage is a mystery like Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:31-32)
      YOu see my Chikito, make you read those references and see. I talked about where
      those cultures go contrary to the Scriptures inugo?
      I do not need to burn shrines in my village, when I pray and fast (spiritual warfare for

  5. well, I love this topic but let me drop this.

    lets talk about culture which,is a complex whole and everything that makes up a society is an individual and what he or she has acquired morally,psychologically,spiritually, physically, to mention but few that makes him/her part of that society.

    every society has its own culture and traditions which must be strictly adhered to.

    at ire-ekiti,,it is a taboo to go into ritual else you loose ur life or forget coming into that village cuz death will be the,end result

    in katsina state,most especially Kusada local government,,you are not allowed to pull off ur clothe as a man outside,else,,u will receive 30strokes of bulala at the megari's palace cuz they beleive doing such na haram n also u will lead the ypung girls into rubbish.

    also at CRC known as charanchi along katsina town,u are not allowed to,come closer to a lady let alone holding her hand.

    come Funtua,,,a male and a female is not allowed to use the same swimming pool,u must adhered to this strictly or else,,u are on ur own ni ooooo


    there is an hotel in the rural part of zaria,,u cant lodge in with a woman except u are marriwd and,she must be ur wife and relebant document to prove must given,either one wedding pix or marriage certificate

Failing to bury the fish like a human being you you will be visited by the river goddess. If you go to the river you will see big fishes swimming about , you dare not touch any.

    My mum is from okolochi in IMO state and they forbid (Onah) its another specie of yam, if you are an indigen and you go to any place on earth to eat it you must have a very big boil on your body. When she newly married my dad those years she ate it with my grandfather (may his soul rest in peace) later had boil and was told the meal she ate, she never knew how it tasted because they never planted it in her village, but that din't happen to my dads family and even to us her children, my husband likes Onah as well.

  19. What saddens me is that most of those "traditions" are "anti-women". As a Christian, we believe that we are born again and sanctified hence no need to pay heed to tradition and taboo.
    However, I've come to realise that there's just nothing you can do about some.
    I usually don't comment under posts but I've been commenting on any post I see tradition or taboo. I've commented many times about how is forbidden in some families for women to do family planning and I've been hoping Stella would do a solo post on this subject so we can all learn and ask questions from families we want to marry into before going ahead because it has deadly consequences sometimes.

    The latest one I heard about is how in one family, if the husband dies prematurely, his widow must be remarried to another man in the family. I've known about this practice but I never heard it was compulsory, I thought it was a woman's choice until I heard about a family that if the woman refuses, she will suffer terribly maybe lose her job, her business going under and in extreme cases even loosing her children.

    Also heard of some families where they sleep with one another's wives and if a man or woman refuses terrible stuff happens.

  27. I wasn't going to comment on this post at all but whatever.

    There's probably nowhere in this world that doesn't have harmful (and dumb) beliefs and practices as part of their culture. Yes, even oyibo people. But for some reason, we want to throw out the baby with the bath water when it comes to Nigerian cultures. Some want to form woke and don't realise how grossly ignorant they sound. Till someone gets into serious trouble that oyibo professor, accent, dissertation or medicine cannot solve - unu anaghi a nu nti.

    What is the logical explanation for a situation where someone meets, marries and breeds with someone they don't know is already dead? As in the person's grave is in their family compound in their village? Cos such things are not meant to be possible, right? No problem. When you enter, you will trend cos bloggers will carry your "What do I do" chronicles. This particular one tends to happen to people who are too "civilised" to do traditional marriage. Something you would have found out if you had bothered to check. But no cos "traditional marriage is un-Christian & brideprice is demeaning to women".

    Lol. But the same people will run to registry and church & quickly pay whatever is demanded, no questions asked. Like mindless drones. #Issolraight.

    Where there's a problem is when tradition clashes with the Word and purpose of God, or even with basic commonsense. Like don't go and dedicate your marriage or child to a demon and say it's part of your village/family tradition. Better open your eyes and ask questions before you open doors that should remain firmly shut.

    Having said that, Christianity is not an excuse to be reckless. Cos God might not protect you from the event or consequences, oh!

    I tell some people who think they're deliverance ministers, "If you know a battle wasn't designed for you, don't enter." You can be a real Christian yet die a needless death, bring calamity on yourself cos you went to put your leg where God didn't send you. Waging war without knowledge. Even people whose names were imprinted on some battles before they were born, don't find it easy. E come be you. Let me leave that for now.

    Even oyibo people that visit Nigeria, admit that there are phenomena all over Africa for which there just isn't a logical explanation. But an African that managed to learn how to read and write, will be forming woke in their utter stupidity and endangering everyone around them.
