1 Cor. 14: Did Sexism Have Some of Its Roots in the Early Church?

Times have changed, but has history?

At first, I thought Paul was just occasionally chatting breeze, but I realised that it’s much deeper than Paul, himself.

First things first, this goes beyond Paul or 1Cor. 14; women being barred from public participation in church, was a practice of the early church.

P.S. I read from the YouVersion bible app, and I study and read mostly in the AMP (Amplified) version by The Lockman Foundation. Continue reading “1 Cor. 14: Did Sexism Have Some of Its Roots in the Early Church?”

Do You Ever Just Sit and Ask Yourself, “What Have I Done Today”?

So.. are you going to push yourself, or wait for God to stick a hand out of the sky and give you a push?

Starting the process of productivity can be difficult. This is how I sometimes get my own attention:


Brain: ‘ello!
Me: …
*stands in front of the mirror*
Brain: Ha! You will soon reduce from a bottom size 10 to a size 8. ☹️
Me: What! 😰 No!
Brain: πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Go to the kitchen.
Me: 😫😩 Yes, ma.
*scrambles around for what to eat*
Brain: Oya, go to your to-do list.
Me: *opens Wunderlist*
Brain: What do you do with your time? πŸ™„
Me: πŸ˜πŸ˜‘
Brain: πŸ˜ͺ Which one are we starting with?
Me: 😫 Everything.
Brain: God, we need help. πŸ˜ͺ

Anyone Else Keep Wondering “Where” They’re Going to Meet “The One”?

Does this one, too, have a fault, or you just don’t want to find “him”?

I had the craziest idea while creating this blog: that I could meet this person on WordPress! πŸ˜† I was like, “What?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Nah, you play too much!”

But, seriously, 😩 how many of us “unmarried” or just single people ask ourselves this question a gajillion times? πŸ˜‚ I do! πŸ™‹πŸΎ Frankly, I’m tired of imagining. πŸ˜‚ Some days, I think I’m just high on oestrogen and I just want to meet him already. Other days, I’m like, “Bruh, wherever you are, stay there or stay away!” πŸ˜† Continue reading “Anyone Else Keep Wondering “Where” They’re Going to Meet “The One”?”

The “Who” Behind The Screen..

Let me introduce you to that woman who’s just typing away..

Y’ello! Welcome to my blog! Let me apologise, in advance, for the many exclamation marks and emojis that will follow. I can’t help being very expressive. πŸ™ƒ

Anyhoo, my name is Manuella, Manny, for short. I’m a writer, talker, reader, critical thinker, lover of God, outspoken, possibly loud, sometimes quiet individual. Oh, I have a thing for visuals. Visual aesthetics are everything!! I do graphic designs for social media posts. 😎 I am a very deep and random individual, hence, my ceaseless writing and talking. I love to impart knowledge and wisdom, and to receive, equally. I believe very much in philosophy and in the social and human sciences. The human power of understanding is underrated. Topic for another day. πŸ˜„ Continue reading “The “Who” Behind The Screen..”
