The Magical Red Roses (Guest Post)

This post has been seen 5191 times.

Someone tells you that they’ve just discovered that eating red roses will make you live longer and have beautiful skin. Suddenly, you are grabbing as much of this as you can. Then the one who told you, comes back to tell you that he now has specially grown roses for sale, now you jump in line to buy.

You, up on till now, had never tasted any type of roses, but you acquire the taste, based on what you’ve been told will happen; you are eating roses morning noon and night. You don’t see any changes, but the one selling you the home-grown roses, is telling you that since this is new, it may take a while to see the effects. Suddenly you start believing it’s working, the placebo effect has kicked in. What would you call this? Gullible or Stupid? Hold that thought; I would say both!

First thing you ought to do is research the validity of the discovery, second thing is to wait for the ever so certain, oops, ‘side effects’ before saying ‘yes it works’. I trust that most of you would probably do the research so this post is pointless…except for those who eat up this same kind of roses that some pastors preach from the pulpit.

  1. Hmmm…this Zombie mentality only gets us more confused.

    Rather than only listening to what pastors preach, we are encouraged to be like the Berean Jews in Act 17:11 – “Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.”

    Do your own research and stop regurgitating whatever you are being told – whether right or wrong.

    Interesting post, but I never get why the light is shown on shady pastors alone, and not any other form of clergy? Sigh, freedom of pen I guess.

  3. I looooooove KDL, his writing is always insightful and thought provoking. Even the bible tells us to test the spirits so as not to be misled, many will come with fantastic doctrine but the holy spirit and God’s word will guide you on the truth. As a Christian I’m dismayed by some of the stuff our preachers (I’m Anglican btw and even my priests are guilty) spew in the name of fundraising and prosperity preaching, so far away from the principles our lord laid down for us and the things he stood for. And when you try to criticise them? The ‘touch not my anointed’ shield comes up. Touch not my anointed doesn’t mean you should keep quiet when your ‘leaders’ are going astray, this is beginning to turn into a rant, it’s my biggest peeve, people refusing to think.
    Back in pharmacy school we did a practical course that involved analysis of various drugs by different companies and in different dosage forms, our findings were heartbreaking. How then do Nigerians take these drugs and feel better? Placebo effect at its peak. Truly Nigeria is the home of the placebo effect

    A healthy laughter, is this “Gullible or stupidy, hold that thought…” Just funny. That’s all I have to say. We Love new things with new names.

  5. ‘No time for research. So we’d try the roses to see what becomes of us.’
    ‘No time? Ok’
    “Why do you just say ‘Ok'”?
    ‘That’s for you to find out and me to lock-up’
    ‘When you’re done doing this, read the post again’
