Following the creation of the the Anglophone Peace movement for the cessation of Violence, anglophones from all works of life have been channeling their concerns, sometimes very emotional, to members. Dr Nick Ngwanyam MD, Secretary General of the Movement, here reacted to two disturbed anglophones, Greg from Kondengui Prison, on the difference between Dialogue and negotiation, and Dr Zama who had disturbing questions on justice and Reparation between parties in the war.
To Greg, an Anglophone from Manyu currently detained in Kondengui Prison and who questioned the view of the Anglophone Peace Movement for the Cessation of violence, on Dialogue and negotiations, Dr Nick here wrote.
I have never been to a physical prison as a prisoner.
But I lived in a Spiritual prison of devil worship for a long time from birth till sometime in 1979 when I met a friend who pointed out to me that being afraid of witches and wizards was the greatest mistake anyone could make in his life. She showed me the way of the cross.
I was a Presbyterian until that time from CPC Bali. I had been worshipping in the Baptist church at some point in JMBC.
In the 3rd year in CUSS I became a Catholic with the help on this friend and she helped me to put my foot on my fear.
That is the day I left prison at age 23.
All Cameroonians are prisoners in one way or the other..
I learnt something that was very interesting.
You can be a very strong person and start a fight with someone that is weaker.
The strong man will knock the weaker person to the ground.
The interesting thing here is that for the strong man to pin the weak man to the ground this strong man must stay at ground level with his victim.
Incidentally the common thing is that both of them are on the ground.
The strong man cannot carry on his daily activities but he is spending time and resources to pin the weak person to the ground. Both of them are losers as the world moves on.
Our souls are made up of three functional parts:
the mind, our will power
Our emotions , which are under the control of the spirit beings in us.
If you harbour the devil you think evil and execute evil which is deceitful and destructive.
The current war is evil fought with ODESHI and the other EVIL spirits from Europe .
The Spirit of the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob that created the heaven and earth is the Only source of Justice truth Peace and Love.
We do not have any justification for killing people on each side of the divide and soaking our land with blood.
We are all in prison because of the blood we shed.
We are in prison because of the lies we all tell.We are in prison because we bear false witness against others.
We are in prison because we are greedy. We steal from the orphan and the widow. We break the morale of the weak. We take away his hope and lock his mind in a prison of despair.
We are too full of our own ego that robs us of humility. We become boastful and fail to listen to each other. We fail to see reason why others should breathe the same free air and that can be very dangerous.
Where Justice and Peace are absent,
Where everyone lives in fear. A giant prison is created be it in our homes, work place, communities or nation.
That said, I know you are physically in Prison in Kondengui.
If you think like Paul, your body is locked up in prison yet your Spirit is free because of the Big God that lives in you.
Before I go there are five very strong emotions that control us.
Two are very Powerful positively,love, faith
The negative and destructive ones are..
anger , fear and I just forgot the fifth one. You can fill in yourself . Hate?
Have a wonderful day. Keep the faith. The Lord is good all the time and stay blessed. Peace be with you.
Turning the other cheek is an expression which means ‘go the extra mile’. Christ did by dying on the cross.
Dr Zama, advanced worries on Justice and Reparation, especially regarding what has been destroyed in the war in the North West and south west regions.
Dr Nick here wrote
Many people share the same concerns and worries like you and we need to actually face the music to get out of this endless tunnel.Most of what you say is true but there are some half truths and traps therein for people who do not know what half truths look like.
Most of the factual things you mentioned are verifiable.When you drive into the philosophical realm you run into serious problems.Christ says we should think the truth speak the truth live the truth do what is true and good and we shall be set free from bondage.If we are in bondage now then we have been lying and living in falsehood here and elsewhere.
The government has not spoken beautiful truth always.The Ambazonians and their leadership have been fighting each other because of lies, poor governance, accountability, ego problems, financial problems, power struggle and the encouragement of Odeshi and garri business.
The military has been doing a lot that needs to be looked into.The three different kinds of Ambas have been doing things that are not entirely holy..
Youth have been killed and old mothers burnt alife. We have seen pictures.How much can one pay for a single soul that is lost. How much would you like to pay for one head that is cut off.
How much can we pay for burnt hospitals and children who have not gone to school for three years.
Who is committing all these evil acts and
in whose name.
Both sides are to blame for this is a senseless war due to lack of dialogue. Kingdom principles are, absolute truth is of the Lord. When you operate in God’s Kingdom he will lead you and show you truths. Only the Spirit does that. Peter told Jesus you are the Christ and Jesus said only the Spirit could have revealed it to you.
Outside of the Kingdom the devil uses three other forms of supposed truth with which he deceived so as to kill.These are Half truths
And another concept that just skipped my mind.
We have all been living in sin and have fallen short of the glory of God.
Many of you are out there that have swindled money from the Cameroon treasury and are still doing so.
Many went out on false papers, on false charges of rape and torture.
Many ran out there and are hiding because you borrowed money from credit unions and individuals and could not pay back
How many of you men and women out there and here at home have killed unborn children through abortion
How many of you go to work on Sundays to earn dollars instead of going to worship God your creator and how many of you are 419?
How many of you have refused to come home and bury your parents?
How many of you are leading broken homes?
When a plane takes off it has a reference point on the ground as it flies to its destination.
That land Mark or marks are fixed because they represent Truth.
If the pilot misses out on this the plane is lost for there is no reference.
Love Truth Justice and Peace have only one stem from which the philosophy is defined. The Kingdom of God.
If you try to set your own court with your own standards you will fail woefully. Christ says forgive seventy seven times 7 times.
Life had no price. All sins have one price which is death.
But God bought us over. That is what lent is all about. You cannot pay God for that abortion you committed or that man you betrayed and lied against in court.
If we try to seek reparation and Justice according to the world it does not exist.
If you tell me how much you are willing to pay for the child ‘you’ killed in an abortion I will be able to use that reference and work out the mathematics.
I am sorry is the greatest word under the Sun.
