LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… `A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of’…” (Jesus, our God and Savior, in Luke 6:45, the Holy Bible).

OPEN LETTER TO MR. CANDIDATE: I address this column today to the candidate who is about to lose another bid of his to become an official of this country through the May 09, 2016 elections. This guy knows who he is, from the bottom of his heart.

And whether he believes it or not, I am writing this in a bid to turn him around, and perhaps salvage whatever is left of his political career that initially held so much promise of greatness for him and his people, but is now literally going down the sewerage drain as a heap of slimy and unwanted trash.

So, let me address this candidate now, directly: Mr. Candidate, many are bewildered by your clear incapacity to rally our people to support you in the elections where you participated, and are puzzled why you seem unable to generate support for your candidacy, when you have the name, the political machinery, affiliation, and support, and the money and wealth, necessary for a successful political career.

THE EVIL OF A BLACK HEART IN A CANDIDATE: But as for me, I know that you are bound to lose any electoral contest where you aspire to become a leader of your people, for one single reason: above all the name, the political machinery, affiliation and support, and the money and wealth which have been given to you on a silver platter, your heart is not in the proper place, and is smeared with the darkest black ever.

Early on, I already wrote in this same column that unless and until you change that black heart of yours Mr. Candidate, you are going to lose every election you participate in. The mighty hand of the good and righteous God will always be there to stop you from winning, because in His mighty omniscience, God knows what you can do to your fellow human beings with that black heart of yours.

I don’t know if you still remember, Mr. Candidate, but, it was with that black heart of yours that you and your coterie of shameless “experts in the law” (all of whom got disgraced in God’s time) ganged up on a hapless soul in 2009 because you perceived that soul to be a hindrance to your ambitions even then. That black heart persists, even now, and is the reason why you can’t seem to rise from the ground, no matter what you do!

* * * *

THE NECESSITY OF CLEANSING A BLACK HEART: That having been said, I would say all is not yet lost for you, except perhaps the elections on May 09, 2016, Mr. Candidate. Since you are still very young compared to those who are dominating you now, you can still do something to finally realize your dream of leading your countrymen at some future time.

But you really have to do something quite urgently, and this “urgent something” requires the cleansing of your black heart, by lifting it up, sincerely and truthfully and repentantly, to God. Admit, Mr. Candidate, the excesses you have committed publicly and privately, and ask the forgiveness of God and of the people whose lives you have destroyed with the aid of your advisers!

Then, imbibe the Word of God and live His commands, no matter how bitter those commands may taste to you. It is only by listening to the Word of God and obeying His commands that His blessings will ultimately come you, enabling you to defeat your enemies with His help! Do this now, while you still have the time, Mr. Candidate!
