Pope Francis named TIME's Person of the Year 2013

After only nine months as the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis has been named TIME magazine Person of the Year 2013. TIME said the former Argentinian Cardinal has become the 'new voice of conscience and is the person who had the greatest impact on the world in 2013.
"Rarely has a new player on the world stage captured so much attention so quickly - young and old, faithful and cynical - as Pope Francis," editors at Time Magazine said. 
The runner-up to the Pope is the National Security Agency whistle blower, Edward Snowden.

Time's man of the year award has always been a subjective test.His reforms were very popular in the West,especially his attempt to extend an olive branch to the gay community (I am not a supporter of gay unions in whatever form) The holy father truly deserves the award.

People are moved by what they see and hear; ruled by their emotions. If you able to generate the right emotions in Humans then you can control them, make them lay down their lives for you. Do not look up to any man; look up to your creator alone.
Only the character of God can be relied upon. He never changes or play to human emotions. God does not need to score cheap points with humans by being politically correct or tailor His words to suit contemporary times/moods.
Look up to God my people.
No Pastor/Priest will lead you to heaven. Commune with the saints but don't worship them. No one can take the place of God no matter how hard they try.
The Israelites of old cried out for a king and made God angry. Why put a man between you and God thereby committing the same sin/fault as the children of Israel? Why look up to Man when you can look up to God?
The hearts of all Men/Women are Wicked, so why do you trust in one?

Long and meaningless sermon. No need to remind us about looking up to God who is should be our ultimate mentor. But even at dat, u still have earthly mentors, or abi u no get pastor/spiritual director? Or don't u go to church at all. Even if u be pastor, don't u hv a superior u admirer and look up to?

U must be very stupid to say dat he supported d gay community. He never did. Ur inability to understand the english translation of what he said led u to a blind conclusion about his stance on homosexuality. U can still refer back to what he said then which can be likened to what Jesus teaches, ie, "love the sinner but hate the sin". If somebody hates u because of ur numerous sins, will that make u to repent? In d same vain, u should show d gay people love while preaching them about their sins. Mind u dat homosexuality is not d only sin that can lead someone to hell fire. Now the question for u is, as u A̶̲̥̅̊я̲̣̥ε̲̣̣̣̥ busy pointing accusing fingers on gays, are u free from other sins that can equally lead u to hell?

That's my Holy Father. For the record, he hasn't and will never support gay marriage. The Roman Catholic Church's stance on abortion, same sex marriage and contraception still stands. Pope Francis only taught us to hate the sin and not the sinner. Et unam sanctam Catholicam, et apostolicam ecclesiam.....

First off, let me start by saying that I went through over 90% of your blogs archive since 2006! It took some time yeah, but in all I learned a lot just browsing through your posts. It felt like I had already met you in person (and honestly I would actually love to)... understanding how you think and watching how you grew your blog from 0 comments to over 5000 comments. Like I literally had tears in my eyes when I read your post "SEND ME COMMENTS!" dated Tuesday, March 27, 2007. I respect you for your consistency. And to think that you started at a time when internet was expensive and didn’t do more than GPRS speed is very inspiring. I'm a huge fan of autobiographies/biographies and honestly after Richard Branson's "Losing my virginity", the lessons I’ve learned from you definitely comes next. Yes! I can say that because it’s very original and practical. You should really consider writing a book. I'm sure a lot of people will be inspired as much as I have.
So let's get to the business of the day. I think the top 5 most commented posts on LIB since you started the blog are;

1. "Dear LIBers: I want to give 10 people N100k each to say thank you". Posted on Monday, December 9, 2013 (5,334 comments)

2. "Happy 33rd birthday to Linda 'Chopping Life' Ikeji...moi! :-)". Posted on Thursday, September 19, 2013 (4,665 comments)
