The word spam used to mean a type of canned meat ! But Today , it means unwanted or
unsolicited mail or literally speaking, Stuff that you see in your email inbox from someone you don�t know and you are not very keen on knowing, electronic garbage to put it digitally, that you have to dispose off with your own money and time .
with 94 billion spam messages sent daily, . In fact, it turns out they add up to a $20 billion cost to society, according to a new paper called "The Economics of Spam," by Justin M. Rao and David H. Reiley, researchers at Microsoft and Google respectively.
That is 94billion/7billion people that is at least 7spam messages for each person assuming everyone had an email address which more than 2 billion plus people do NOT !
Imagine waking up every day and meeting tons of garbage out side your doorstep that you have to take out else the Sanitation authorities will penalize you and the smell is awful too!
Now that is a graphic description of Spam, that means the stammer is the original web lowlife, bottom of the chain in Digital Ethics ,morals etc
Well sorry to say .I confess and say proudly. I am a "SPAMMER". It is a funny confession, I bug peoples mailboxes with Christian articles etc and you trust humans they bug me back with replies and requests, some nice, others plain dumb, some very expletively REMOVE ME FOM YOUR MAILING LIST!
Since I started my "SPAMMING" career this last group got me thinking, and they actually got me worried and harassed as I was new to this business of sending out Jesus mails to people I never knew before .Like the proverbial Nigerian 419(con or scam artist) funny Spam and scam go together, see!
They actually rhyme (it is a "p" and "c" that distinguish, short for PC some coincidence huh)
Well, back to the gist. I used to think, this is really bad, sending out Christian articles to people that don't want them esp. to those that scream ! when they hear the "J" word (J is for Jesus, say it loud,
(JESUS LOVES YOU !) . It is a name that has been given Far Above Every other Name . Some people cringe when they hear the name Jesus ! I have experienced it !
It amazed and bothered me initially, that I was getting really, really bad replies from folk about my netchurch SPAM cum �SCAM� tactics.
So we Toyed with the Idea of setting up a Website Called netchurch.tv and recently tweetchurch.us
Well, then I used to unsubscribe them at their request thinking to my poor capitalist self, we are in a "CHOICE" world. "FREE WILL" is what got us here in the first place and as the Blessed Lord said Mark 6:11
11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrah in the Day of Judgment, than for that city.
KJV Well that was what I just did then I quickly shook them off my Subscribe list just like that, UNTIL now.
You might be getting bored or better still gearing up for what Frank Adeche has to say ...."dis guy no dey tire sef " (sorry, non pidgin readers best phrase i could come up with )
Everyday recently I have noticed a new kind of Spam (yes I get spammed too) in my mailbox .It is "THE SCAM SPAM OF FREE PORNOGRAPHY) all sorts mails from fictitious email addresses that have pseudo gobbledok like firstname.lastname@example.org etc.. and they just land inside my mail box with all the audacity of the internet . or I am checking my yahoo mail and there it is naked Woman ! Or I am watching Nigeria's XFactor and some Lady caled Toolz with tools that make her think she is Man's Answer to a curvy hourglass Eve when I daresay she looks like she is seriously overweight !
I am no judge but maybe i can be allowed to be on this Jury .No matter how spiritual we are We are subject to Temptation and except it is h2S04 aka sulphuric acid that runs in your viens you will get moved by every Rihanna,Beyonce Toolz Cossy Orjiakor that spam their Tools at you Be you The Pope The General Overseer or The Bishop !
But then lets continue our story on spam .....
Well initially, I used to bother meself and reply back with emails telling them about Jesus etc but I got even more mail from these folk so I stopped doing that.
It was pretty funny and amazing the kinds of stuff advertised out there, FOR FREE, I sometimes imagine what teenagers are facing now with the ease of the Internet to distribute corrupting wares, It must be quite overwhelming, in those days in school. old bad boys like us had to get a hold of a playboy or a penthouse magazine and those didn�t come easy or cheap. Now, just go to the google search engine and type in the words you want and append "free porn" and I bet you the list of sites out there will amaze you !
For some time it got me really angry, etc but then I thought to myself don't get mad, get even! So, I stopped throwing my digital tantrums because I simply just delete them (porn and get rich quick schemes) off my inbox/bulk folder whenever I can and thank God yahoo/gmail now promise unlimited GB free pus dropbox inbox that box and everyother box ! God bless yahoo. (I, like a lot of folk I know LOVE free STUFF). Like the clouds in the Sky The cloud is going Awoof !
I just trash them off and don't even bother to find out where they came from obviously from some poorly configured email relay server somewhere in China or Timbuktu !.
(See attached spamming manual or better yet send in a request for one
Ok guys, on to the rest of this short gist. Well, it got me going cos the more I responded to these unsubscribe requests the more I felt bad at the language proffered by my angry readers in making them.
Also, my readers list got smaller (sigh congregation numbers low, not good for netchurch "purse" incidentally we are a f.r.e.e site)
UNTIL I read somewhere in that same wonderful Book the HOLY bible that: Matt 24:14
14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. KJV
And then "eureka!" enlightment came in. I reckoned to my self, well who wants out should get out as long as the gospel has been preached ,Apollos planted, Paul watered but the Holy Spirit is the one that giveth the increase amen !
I began to unsubscribe those that did not want to hear and to thank God for those that didn't esp. the ones that replied with kind words of encouragement , and yes, maybe the others did not just give a damn about netchurch and our "junk mail" eeeyah, (funny word my Pastor says when he feels really, really sorry for you) Well now on to the main topic
The theory of SPAM
All around us today there is Spam everywhere , from when you wake up in the morning till you lay you down to sleep ,you are being spammed and in most cases scammed. Even in your dreams, so there seems like no escape from this, except us Christians have a reply. Peculiar huh?
Well we are a peculiar people 1Pet2:9 and O yes, I agree we get spammed too but no sir we aren't supposed to get scammed for GREATER is he that is in us ... We have the mind of Christ !
You might not notice, all around you, from whenever you do your f.r.e.e willy thingy (nice movie it was too those days chen a kids movie was a kids movie ! Not the Blood & Deeath of Today but a simple story about a boy and fish a killer whale or orca not childrens movies about Wizards & witches ) there is either a Spam or scam going on or a combination .
As Spam means unsolicited messages, scam means a conception of deceptions from the adechefranksters dictionary.
On TV we now have so called Pastors Evangelist General Overseers All Spamming us with a "jesus" that is not of the Bible and scamming us with a "christ" that died for us ALL .
They are promising us a Paradise here on Earth when Jesus Christ Himself promised us A Persecution on Earth & a Paradise in Heaven !
From the time you wake up or your alarm clock does the job and look at yourself in the mirror in your bathroom (if you have the time unlike me) and lets assume you got spammed while you were dreaming (nightmare !) and somehow you know "it is gonna be a bad day. WHAM ! SCAM done!
BUT: those are them days when the Son or Daughter of God El Shaddai says
Lam 3:22-23 22 Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed, For his compassions never fail. 23 They are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness. NIV
From then on the great SPAM/SCAM continues. How you dress depends on what Gucci, Calvin Klein etc have spammed and scammed you 300dollars for a Shirt! Because you want to be part of the in crowd. How you choose your breakfast depends on what Cadbury, Nestle or Sainsbury has spammed you with.
You drive (Acura, BMW, Benz, Toyota, and Honda Spam) to work and see variations of "Rihannas" wizkid Psquare Inyanya 2faces Rick Ross Kanye Norths R.kellys with or without any clothes SPAM again! Look at their videos Guns violence and Sex and we complain about paedophiles etc ..
You notice the cute girl dressed just like Rihanna and you stare with your wife riding shotgun, SCAMMED too!
You get to work and one look at your boss and you know it is gonna be a bad day SPAM. (He just got spammed too ! ) All through the day it is work, work and some kinds of work is like spam, plain backbreaking ugly monotonous job that you have no desire or skill for, but it sure pays well, so you do it to pay for the BMW,Gucci,Lekki mansion (SCAM done again).
And so it goes on and on until you get home and switch on the Mother Ship of Spam the ubiquitousTelevision Set, which you watch until you go to bed that day and you say it out aloud. "What a day ! When it is clear that it should have been What a Scam !
Oh yes, the scam/scam game will continue until Christ returns but God still calls us all to:
James 4:7-8 NIV submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8 Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
1 Cor 2:14-16 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
but their hearts are far from me as they are trying to scam us as their true motives .
their teachings are merely human rules.’c ”
My Friends Beware of Spiritual Spam & Spiritual Scams
God Bless you

Not a bad idea considering the fact that's it's a healthy message as opposed to the poisons being peddled on the net. I much rather advertise than spam though. But that's just me.
