SPOT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISLAM, CHRISTIANITY AND PAGANISM
There is too much religion in the developing world right now, too much pre-occupation with spiritually false and ineffective money spinning religious enterprises of con-artists, especially in the hapless African world of abject poverty and ignorance; resulting in the colossal loss or waste of precious and productive energy and time that all of mankind could have jointly harnessed to move civilization significantly forward.
We spend the better part of the day and several vigil nights weekly, on our knees or butts praying endlessly and tirelessly to no avail because that is not how spirituality works. We are the most wretched people on earth. Our society is riddled with unmitigating violence; entrenching culture of dare-devil robbery and filthy and shameless corruption; dearth of basic infrastructure and degrading, decaying, primitive unnurturing, unfulfilling environment, because we are applying spirituality wrongly and we are not using our heads. We are wasting too much time on our knees instead of on our feet to work.
All organized religions deceive followers that witchcraft is all evil but the elite of these religions are soaked in the practice. It is impossible to engage the Gods without some formalities that involve abstinence, meditation, fasting and ritual sacrifices. Sacrifices are paramount and sometimes include blood of some sort and so on. Christ was supposed to have sacrificed his blood for mankind so his devotees make a meal of his flesh and blood with bread and wine in communion.
Another lie by modern religions is their claim to worship only one God. What the Christian and Islamic religions did was to pick Yahweh from the ten Jewish intermediary gods and substitute the remaining nine: Hokhmah, Binah, Hesed, Gevurah, Tifereth, Netsah, Hod, Yesod and Malkuth with Jesus, Muhammad, dozens of Saints, Anubis, Angels etc.
Yahweh is only one of the ten Jewish attributes of En-Sod. Yahweh is a tribal deity and claims to hate Africans and others (i.e. Amorites, Philistines, Canaanites, Jebusites, Hittites). He threatened to wipe all of us off the face of the earth for his children, the Israelites. So, when someone tells you 'God bless you,�� be weary and ask which God, which deity? It is important for all religious people, particularly African Christians and Muslims, to understand this. Yahweh is a Jewish tribal god and not the ultimate source of spirituality, which is Tu-SoS or the Jewish En-Sof.
Tu-SoS (The ultimate Source of Spirituality), or En-Sof (in Judaism), is not a God or spirit but an energy source and is not worshipped anywhere in the world. Modern Africans, like their ancestors, do not worship Tu-SoS, which they variously call Olodumare, Osanobua, Chukwu. The Jews too do not worship En-Sof. The Jews, like the Africans, worship the intermediary Gods. African ancestors created all the initial intermediary Gods and Deities known to man. African ancient intermediary Gods include El, Thoth, Auser, Auset, Heru, Maat, Anubis etc., and in modern times, names such as Sango, the God of lightening, masculinity, fearlessness and hard work; Olokun, the Goddess of beauty, arts, culture, poetry, love, marriage, femininity and fertility; Orunmila, the God of wisdom, scholarship and learning; Obatala, the God of creativity and Ogun, the God of Iron and technology.
The secondary intermediary gods or deities include Yahweh and the other Jewish adaptations of the original African intermediary Gods, and the ethnic gods and goddesses with a variety of names around the world today: Apollo, Venus, Jupiter, Adonis, Minerva, Diana, Brahman etc.
The adapted gods and goddesses are not as spiritually potent as the original African spiritual Gods. If you go to any of the original, undiluted, African spiritual Gods, such as Sango, to make a request, the deity or Sango, would give you conditions to fulfill there and then. You would not have to go home and come back for Sango's response, and if you meet the conditions set, Sango would oblige you with your request. It is as simple as that and it could happen within minutes of your request. If, on the other hand, you go to the diluted or adapted spiritual Gods like the Christian and Islamic Yahweh, to table a request, you don't get an answer right away. In fact, you could be talking to a brick wall. You keep praying, begging, and fasting, hoping that someone is listening.
A good example of this is the Irish priest who assembled a dozen barren, middle-aged, married women and passed six of them on to Baba-maven to use his witchcraft to alter their faith while he prayed for the other six. The priest decided the choice of candidates and allocated them. After six weeks of the experiment, five of Baba's six candidates were pregnant for their husbands while the six the priest prayed and fasted intensely and fervently for, remained barren. If by any chance something favourable eventually happens, perhaps months or even years after you first made your request to Yahweh or the other secondary gods, you give the credit (or glory as it is often claimed), to Yahweh. But when a tsunami happens in your life, you blame your sinful self or the devil and not Yahweh for it. Your relationship with Yahweh is based purely on chance, and that is not how spirituality works. Spirituality can be asked and even commanded to make things happen although often at a price.
The Mother-in-Israel, Pastor Folu Adeboye, wife of the founder and Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, in admitting the supremacy of Paganism, was quoted in the Guardian newspaper, Nigeria, of July 26, 2009, as follows: “As powerful as African Juju priests are, none of them possess the power to keep the night and stop the morning from coming.” But Paganism is not in competition with the 'Source' of spirituality; it is the only access to the 'Source,' or 'God.' Paganism can becloud the early morning sun to make the night drag longer but cannot stop 'time.' God' cannot stop time either.
The bad connotation given to the witch or witches, gives witchcraft its ugly meaning because witches are not necessarily all evil people. They could be white witches or geniuses in any given profession. It is the sorcerers or red and black witches and the demon diviner/doctors that are always evil, and they unfortunately predominate in evil witchcraft.
Witchcraft incorporates all spiritual and religious activities including praying, telepathy, meditation, magic, clairvoyance, fasting, rituals and sacrifices. Priests, doctors, parapsychologists, traditional healers, diviners, magicians, astrologists, card readers, star gazers, palmists, heruspex practitioners, alchemists, Alfas, herbalists etc., are not necessarily all sorcerers or sorceresses, but could be experts or good witches and wizards in their various fields and practices.
Witches are graded by colour, with white representing good witches and would never do evil; the red and black witches in all races are the wicked ones. They are the sorcerers, possessed by demonic spirits which they use to perpetrate their evil acts. They have no regards for family, friends and have no respectable, responsible attachments. They are invariably sadists, permanently angry, vindictive and at war with every one, and with society. Their sole preoccupation in life is to kill, maim and destroy, and from these they derive immense joy, satisfaction, and self-fulfillment.
So, they deserve the public odium they have drawn to themselves. At the same time, the rest of us need to know that it is not witchcraft that is evil but the person (or witch) using it, or the use to which it is put. Witchcraft is like a knife and depends on the user. It is the highest level of science possible; human's only link with the spirit world; the sacred telephone link with all the Gods; the one single source of spiritual power and miracles, and it has not been fully explored positively by man. All religions practice it albeit artificially, with varying results.
We, therefore, have no reason to be so categorically dismissive or judgmental about witchcraft. We do not know enough about it yet anyway. Most of us do not know why or how it works, and it works for both good and evil, there is no doubt about that, and we are all involved in it through prayers, wishing, thanksgiving and self-sacrifices, at least. When we use it for good, we do not tell others about it but when it is used for evil against us, we scream to the high heavens.
Witchcraft, evil or not, is not peculiar to Africa. It is more secretive outside it that is all. It is practiced all over the world even by heads of states who regularly consult diviners before taking any action. President Ronald Reagan of America was known to regularly consult a soothsayer every morning before confronting decisions of the day. The husband of Britain's one time Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, was known to be a leading member of the secret cult called the Smiths that to all intents and purposes rules Britain today. Many workers on the London Bridge died during its construction until the spirit of the body of water around the bridge was pacified. Every August since then, an elaborate ritual incorporating human sacrifice is secretly performed by a British cult group from a dead ship anchored at the mouth of the bridge.
Covens of witches are still very active all over the world. In 1944, during the allied armies' invasion of Europe, a Mrs. Helen Duncan, described as a spiritual medium, was sent to prison in Britain for activities connected with witchcraft. The prosecution drew caustic remarks from Winston Churchill, the British Prime Minister at the time. The British Witchcraft Act was finally repealed in the 1950s.
Children's dolls today are the images of fallen ancient gods and nursery rhymes are laced with the sorcerers' spell to induce calm and sleep. Cicero wrote a book on divination, which highlighted the significance of dreams, premonitions and the flight of birds as illustrating the purpose of the gods.
A married German couple, Daniel Ruda and wife, showed no remorse when convicted in a German court in early January 2002, for the murder of their neighbour and friend, to perform a weird witchcraft ritual of a cult they belonged to.
The six and seven books of Moses are about simplified aspects of witchcraft in Kabbalism. The Israeli Seven-day war was won with severe witchcraft. The Rabbis kept busy, they called it divine luck. The Arabs suddenly stopped advancing, on the verge of overrunning Israel ten men to one, and with far superior weapons and conquered grounds. The breather provided the scared Jews the opportunity to infiltrate behind enemy lines in peach darkness to plant bombs.
In fact, current societal progress and civilization would have been impossible without esoteric witchcraft because spirits often sensitize scholars to what to do and science and technology are the rudimentary stages of divine witchcraft. Modern communications utilize electromagnetism, as does witchcraft. Tapping into radio waves is witchcraft. Sending crafts to the Moon in defiance of gravity is witchcraft.
All Chemists perform witchcraft by mixing chemicals (the same way witches mix their brews), to induce certain results including healing. Essentially, magic is an aspect of witchcraft but modern man tries to distinguish between entertainment witchcraft, which is called magic, and commercial (evil) witchcraft, which they ignorantly think is the same as divine witchcraft. When witchcraft generally is carried out by rainmakers, shamans, diviners and witch doctors today we frown but when priests, Alfas and scientists do the same thing we hail them as divine.
The elite of modern religions do not see or call what they do witchcraft. It is God's miracles, they say. Great crimes are being committed in the name of God in mosques and conventional churches. Imams and Pastors take advantage of the spiritual naiveté of their followers to intimidate and suppress them to collect tithes. There is the handkerchief racket you buy to wipe away your sins or the give me 40% of what you have and the Lord would multiply your fortune a hundred fold, preacher-swindlers. Tools of criminal activities are being blessed by some pastors at a price and Churches and Mosques often serve as sanctuaries for society's miscreants.
Witchcraft in Islam
African Muslim clerics are more potent than their Arab counterparts because of the superior African spiritual power. A group of Islamic scholars I told that religion without witchcraft was no religion told me how their Alfa died when his home was bombed by a rival religious sect. Their deputy Alfa had to fortify himself with base witchcraft. It is normal or do I want him to be killed like a chicken, they asked? When the well-loved Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Chief Bola Ige, was assassinated on December 23, 2001, the question on the lips of many Christian and Muslim Nigerians was why he did not reinforce police security with witchcraft from his village, Esa Oke?
There are blood cuddling stories of dictators who took their bath with human blood regularly to ensure their permanent hold on power. Nigeria had, at least, two of such leaders of military extraction, who were of the Islamic faith. Since such leaders still lose power after a while or are killed in the process, the spiritual gifts garnered through the blood sacrifices would tend to be transient at best. In any case, there is always a price to pay for evil gifts, ranging from early death of the seeker, to the loss of life of a dear one or impotency etc.
Witchcraft was planted on the land of a chap I knew. The idea being to scare him off his land or kill him. His staff, who did not believe in such things, dug up the contraption and threw it into a near-by bush. That evening, his right hand began to swell painfully and before long he was feeling like he was going to have a partial stroke on the left hand side of his body. The Imam invited to his rescue copied some verses from the Koran, and washed the writing into a cup for the patient to drink. Slowly, over a couple of days of continuing to drink the concoction, the swelling began to subside. But to permanently disconnect the witchcraft, which included cowries mounted on a piece of wood, a cock and a hen were sacrificed by the Imam who used the blood along with other objects and heavy incantations from the Koran. Obviously, some electromagnetic force had to be battled in the fierce encounter to release the patient from the grip of the witchcraft contraption.
I stumbled on an elaborate witchcraft ritual one early morning in the compound of a Lebanese Muslim neighbour in Apapa, Lagos, Nigeria. Alfas, Imams and family members of the Lebanese were involved in the apparently solemn event that included the skinning of a sheep alive. I retreated quickly because the faces of the participants in the event did not suggest that visitors were welcomed.
A few days later, the Lebanese neighbour had the opportunity to explain to me that the skinned sheep was buried alive in the compound and that it was a part of an Islamic ceremony to invite good fortunes. He said other versions of the rituals could include writing the messages (requests), on the body of the skinned sheep in what is called Hantu (i.e. special ink), with Kalam (special biro), before burying it alive.
Tabati Ada is a potent witchcraft ritual not fully spelt out in the Koran for obvious reasons. It involves the summoning of the relevant 'Spirit' at mid night with the blood of a black goat and peering into the sun the following noon day with naked eyes to demand specific favours. Of course, the entire ceremony is more elaborate than this, laced with an almost endless monologue of spoken Koran verses relevant to the purpose.
Every Muslim knows about Ya'si involving a number of brothers moving into the home of the fortune seeker to pray 1600 times each day and night, usually for seven days and nights at a time, using appropriate Koran verses. Politicians rely on it for winning elections. Women swear by it to capture spouses. Business people use it to trap untrammelled wealth and many swear it works especially when wrapped in raw witchcraft. Ya��si is in the water or wrap, under the wings of the cock by the water, and the smouldering fire in a shallow bowl-size well in the public room. The cock crows every morning to wake up the fortune seeker until the seventh day when it enters the fire of hell guaranteeing success. The fortune seeker might be required to ride a female donkey to a market place at past midnight to be intimate with the donkey, pull out on the verge of release, and collect his sperm for the final rituals.
For example, the Holy Communion with wine and bread representing the blood and flesh of Jesus respectively, is criminal witchcraft cannibalism, but the Church faithful prefer to deceive themselves. All these are the surface programmes, much else go on behind the curtains with incantations, incenses, candles etc. Abraham sacrificed a ram to spare his son's life but human sacrifices are not sacrosanct to the Gods. Yahweh supports human sacrifice. (Ex.22: 29 – 30).
Yahweh revels in blood sacrifices including human, and in elaborate, archaic rituals. Yahweh killed (Num.16: 35, 21:6; Deut. 32:39; 1Sam. 2: 26; Psalm 135: 10. Yahweh ordered killing (Lev.26: 7 –8: Num. 25; 4-5). The daylight human sacrifice of Luciano (Catholics prefer to call it the 'miracle' of fresh human flesh and blood), proves the true nature of the Communion host – the Eucharist.
All modern Churches: the Protestants, the Apostolic Faith, the Church Missionary Society, the Celestial Church of Christ, the Roman Catholic Church, the Cherubim and Seraphim, the Qua-Iboh sects and the Pentecostal variances, to name a few, are involved in serious witchcraft called miracles. The priests heal with magic words and herbal mixes passed on as holy water or the blood of Jesus. Bread replaces human flesh, and wine blood, obviously to get high and speak in tongues.
In most Christian sects, licentiousness has been developed to an art. Women looking for pregnancies are taken by priests of some of the sects to lonely beaches at night or in the early morning hours and fingered mercilessly in the guise of allowing the holy spirit to enter into them, before being raped singing Alleluia to every bang, heightened with the mention of the name Jesus.
Another version is called 'Abe Abo' for protection, which literally means to sleep under the priest for 3 to 7 days at a stretch. This goes on all the time in Celestial churches for instance. A married woman desperate for a child is given some liquid concoction to rob on any penis (but her husband's), before sex, to get pregnant. The pastor would pretend he is not interested in the act so as to be begged by the woman to oblige there and then. It is decreed by Jesus, the one and only Son of God.
Pentecostalism is the latest vogue in town. The prophets, pastors or priests rely on witchcraft for their magic and pass these off as miracles even on television. Their greatest con is reserved for healing, stage managed with paid people posing to have been cured of some ailments in the spirit of Jesus. I saw a man who appeared on two healing programmes of two entirely different Churches on the same Sunday. He was on an early morning television show claiming to have been cured of spinal cord problems. Six hours later he was on another television show with a different Church, removing his braces to prove his miraculous cure, after being pushed to the ground by the priest stretching his right hand in the fake patient's direction.
Ailments caused by emotional problems can be cured psychologically, especially through counseling. None spiritual ailments respond to orthodox medicine and spiritually caused ailments are cured only spiritually. In reality, there are no miracle cures. All ailments are caused (a) through physical means such as by germs, wounds, defective organs etc., which can sometimes be treated with orthodox medicine or herbs, or caused by (b) spiritual means, with the attacking spirit or spirits attaching to our bodies to perpetuate the ailment, or the ailment sent by remote control through the wind, powered by electromagnetism.
Spiritually caused ailments copy physically caused ailments in intensity and details and range through all forms of ailments from headaches to cancer to AIDS. All spiritual treatments use other spirits (deities) to detach the spirit/s attacking or to cut off the remotely controlled electromagnetic link. Spiritual healing happens immediately following the detachment of the attacking spirit, that is why it seems to be like a miracle. Miracle cures in Churches, therefore, affect only spiritual ailments and intense prayers are not enough, severe witchcraft quietly summoning a spiritual deity or deities for intervention, is involved.
The miracle priests and pastors are dishonest about their sources of power. They pretend in public to be tapping their energy from the Bible or Jesus while in the privacy of their homes they are involved in diabolical witchcraft to sustain the power. No miracle is possible without witchcraft. As we are misled in believing, when 'Spirit' kills, devil takes the blame. When 'Spirit' gives good health, wealth, children and long life, God takes the glory. God is society's convenient and acceptable alibi.
The first activity of a Pentecostal church pastor is to learn magic and witchcraft. All the big names, Adeboye, Joshua etc are not ignorant about this. A leading Lagos pastor working miracles currently, received his spiritual energy from a well-known powerful witch doctor. Six pigs are sacrificed yearly at a Pentecostal leader's Ifa shrine in Ijebu Ode, Nigeria. Because they are not honest about their sources of power, their spiritual gifts tend to be transient and a great price is paid in private to sustain the deceit for any length of time.
The second activity of the Pentecostal priest is to employ a standby witch doctor far more potent in the craft than he is, to continue to guide him. Then he dreams up grand names like: the Mission of God Incorporated or the Fire on the Mountain Mission or the Angels of God Caravan etc. Before building his church premises, his witch doctor must ritually bury any number of live cows from a dozen to a hundred, depending on means, in the foundation of the building. The intention being that the thousands of maggots that would invade the carcasses of the dead animals would translate into the crowd of worshippers the new church would attract and they do translate into such a crowd.
A pastor told me recently that when he prays after 12 mid night, especially when he begins to call on the Holy Ghost to exorcise the demons around him, he experiences serious body vibrations and his room begins to spin around him until he gives up and goes to sleep. A German preacher, Evangelist Reinhard Bonnke, who visits Africa several times yearly, admitted the other day that he comes to Africa regularly to spiritually re-charge and that Africans do not know the high level of spiritual power they are blessed with. Nigerian Prophet T.B. Joshua is the leading Christian priest in the world right now because he is African.
There are traces of invisible use of power and methods of spiritual development as symbolized by rituals, gestures and thoughts, which are still practiced in the Church today, which the Church fathers hope followers would not try to understand.
During the Xmas holidays of 1999, Pope John Paul II had cause to go through a once in fifty years' witchcraft ritual. There is a room at the Golden Gate of St. Paul's Basilica at the Vatican, which is opened only briefly once every Jubilee year by the reigning Pope. The room contains relics, including skeletons and bones of special ancestors, such as of the African original God Ausar (Osiris), wife Auset (Isis) and Virgin Son Horus. Also in the room are fetish symbols like ancient crosses, urns and regalias etc.
Pope John Paul II was seen by television viewers worldwide knocking on the door to the room three times (like Ifa priests do before entering their shrines), before entering the room alone and closing the door behind him, obviously to try to collect mysterious powers from the skeletons, bones and artefacts in the room. He emerged from the room a few minutes later, with the door locked firmly for another fifty years. What is witchcraft but the worship of fetish objects and idols?
Africans serve many Gods by offering sacrifices and prayers through such intermediaries, but what are Christians doing when they say Mass through a plethora of subordinate deities such as: St. Michael, St. Peter, St. Paul, St. Jude, the Archangel, the Virgin Mary, Jesus Christ etc? Christians say they do not believe in ancestors, but what are their dead Saints and Jesus to them? Christians say they do not believe in reincarnation, but they are waiting endlessly for the return of their ancestor, Jesus.
In the Catholic Church for instance, the process of recognizing a saint has not changed since the 16th century. The first step, beatification, requires at least one confirmed miracle. Canonization, the final declaration of sainthood requires at least one more. The Canadian medical historian, Dr. Jacalyn Duffin, put the study of miracles in the Catholic Church under her microscope for years and found that out of the 1,400 individual saint-making miracles; more than 500 were validated in the 20th century. The most recent miracle healing on her list took place in 1995. Duffin, a physician, claimed that supplicants walked away from seemingly incurable diseases, ranging from the suppurating wounds and raging tuberculosis of the pre-antibiotic era to today's diagnoses of metastatic cancer. What the church and Duffin are calling miracles is the spirit of the saint or others acting on being summoned spiritually to detach the spirit causing the dire illness.
Christians wear medals, crosses, crucifixes, rosaries and other objects of their religion as pendants; eat the flesh and drink the blood of Jesus in Holy Communion; wrap psalms in pouches or scapular charms, made from pieces of cloth, to carry about on their bodies or in their vehicles as talisman; sprinkle blood of Jesus all over the place or bathe with it to ward off evil forces; put bibles under their pillows and crosses on their walls for protection; kneel before priests and fetishly stuffed alters in supplication; retreat regularly for vigils to pray and chant endlessly clutching rosaries, pendants, and other religious symbols to their ancestors (saints, Jesus, Yahweh etc); go on pilgrimages to their holy lands to touch and kiss stones, walls, or worship rivers and mountains.
When African traditional faith followers, such as Sango and Amadioha adherents, do these same things for their deities, the Africans are described as being fetish. Both are into base witchcraft rituals, the only difference is that while one relies on artificial or man made objects (such as bread, wine and rosaries), the other remains faithful to natural elements, and we all know who is more potent.
African Mavens and Divine Witchcraft
Witchcraft at the divine or arcane level is the ultimate for spiritual communication and requires minimal ceremonies. The potency of genuine African witchcraft at the cryptic level is not in doubt. Not everyone that claims to be able to divine whether with urim and tumim or what ever else can deliver. Because African Gods are very potent, charlatans cash in to exploit the innocent.
There are seven grades of diviners in African faiths. Most rank and file lowest grade diviners, along with all impostors, operate at the mundane level, causing untold pain and suffering by their bungling, to put their clients' lives on a roller-coaster chance of hit and miss. The highest grades of diviners, from top down in Yoruba pantheon are Aroles, Oluwos, Apenas and Akapos. A few of them, along with African white witches, are mavens who know their onions. They usually operate at the esoteric level, which is the highest level of spirituality reserved for the gods. They tend to be aged and not educated in the modern sense, but they are wiser than acknowledged university professors.
There is nothing the mavens cannot do. Absolutely nothing. They experiment with animal and mineral magnetism, the Lodestone and the forces of psychological impressions. They can read the in-most secrets of the soul and send their own spiritual forces out from the body. They are masters of mesmerism, clairvoyance and electro biology. They use herbs and drugs, employ music and resonance, and can imitate precious stones by chemical process.
They can cause rain to fall in a desert even out of season with the snap of the fingers; stop bullets in flight with bare hands; instigate still birth or temper difficult pregnancy; vanish into the thin air at the scene of a fracas or involvement in a motor accident. Mavens can travel through space to distant destinations in seconds by just saying a few words or closing their eyes. They can help politicians win elections; turn never-do-wells into overnight millionaires or help them gain promotions at work, but usually at a personal cost, of course. They can tell who did what, when and why.
They hardly ever use their powers to do evil. They are restrained from doing evil by the spiritual code of not doing harm to anyone who has not wronged you because if you do, you destroy your own spiritual defence. As a rule they hardly charge fees for their services. They wait to be rewarded by satisfied customers who tend to forget them after their fortunes have changed for the better.
The mavens tend to live a relatively wretched life. Perhaps that is their covenant for their spiritual gifts. They do not make noise about their prowess and tend to allow people to seek them out rather than advertise themselves. Their spiritual feats spread through words of mouth.
All diviners, particularly mavens, have and rely on spirit mentors or messengers. There is an item, could be a piece of stone totem, scapular charm or similar, held in the hand or kept within proximity of the diviner, which links him or her with the spirit facilitator. Spirits can pick on anyone to bestow such gifts upon. The gift can also be cultivated.
Many Africans use witchcraft to choose names, determine careers, pick spouses or business partners. There is nothing wrong with this kind of witchcraft. It helps you to avoid making life or career threatening or damaging mistakes. We must not use the services of witch doctors that harm and kill people. We must avoid such witches instinctively and report when we discover them, to the police, Obas, Emirs, community leaders and the media, for exposure and sanctions, because they are evil, often counterfeit practitioners, and are extremely dangerous to society. Such bogus or wicked diviners are known too by their high fees.
We must not ask diviners to kill, maim or cause pain spiritually or otherwise to others, so as to take their jobs, pinch their lovers, make money or get on in business etc. We can only ask 'good first class' diviners, to help narrow down our options, reduce or eliminate mistakes over who to marry, what jobs to take, what careers to embark upon, and what choices are best for us generally. That way we avoid making costly, frustrating blunders that tend to slow down progress or could be life threatening.
We could use our spirituality to determine our best way forward, learn to improve our chances, and if we work hard and adequately, we could ask to make progress in our endeavours without causing harm to others. There is enough room in the sky to contain the ambitions of all of us. The more people there are that are successful around us, the better for our world. If I help you, you would help my son who would help another person's son because he was helped. We must never ever indulge in the spiritual use or sale of human blood or body parts. Nature can be served in a modern and sophisticated format and setting. If, for instance, Sango wants rituals served at the base of a tree, i.e., Idi Araba or Idi Iroko, we can still have appropriate songs, incantations, clothing and rituals, all wrapped in a barbecue. Sanitize your tools, equipment, and work not in a dirty, smelly, shrine but a neat, modern, environment similar to a classy hospital or clinic.
