[INTERVIEW] AGRIPPAH MICHEAL: HOW I HANDLE SEXUAL TEMPATIONS

Reading Time: 3 minutes


As an undergraduate in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Agrippah Micheal shepherded many Christian groups, as President, starting from of CASSOR fellowship, Joint Christian Body to Nigerian Veterinary Medical Christian Students. Like every Christian youth, he was exposed to sexual temptations; but he stood his ground. In this chat with JOSEPH DINWOKE he reveals how he handled such temptations.

Excepts…

Generally, there are temptations that are common among youths and you are not an old man.  Some of such temptations have to do with lack of money, hormones that are alive and active. How were you able to resist such temptations?

Now coming to sex.  I have hormones. I am a man. I have urge for sex, even as a leader.

Now, how do you handle sexual urge?

That’s where Christian character and discipline comes in. That’s where being a child of God comes in  because Christianity is not about going to church and lifting holy hands and people are singing and dancing and you are carrying yourself as a Presido. You are still a man.

How I was able to handle those things was that I realized that any little mistake I make will influence those that I’m leading. So, I always consider the fact the people I am leading. What will be the effect of my actions on them? What determines what you do is your level of relationship with God. So, the fear of God and the fear of what God is going to do if I do this thing also constrained me.

I have some sisters that I mentored but I am careful not to mentor them in to my room. Even the lady I told you is my fiancé does not know the color of my bed uptill now. Not that I’m forming a strong man but I’m being very careful. If a man has a great destiny he has to be careful because what you do with your today determines your great destiny.

What if I am on top of a woman and rapture takes place? It’s not as if I never had temptations. It was there; it used to come. I have had sisters in fellowship who loved me so much and my usual way was not run away from them but to be very careful  though I was not a discipler  many sisters. There are brothers today who like discipling only sisters. All their disciples on campus are sisters. I Iike such people who have such grace but I don’t have it. I have some sisters that I mentored but I am careful not to mentor them in to my room. Even the lady I told you is my fiancé does not know the color of my bed uptill now. Not that I’m forming a strong man but I’m being very careful. If a man has a great destiny he has to be careful because what you do with your today determines your great destiny. A sister said that she wants to wash my clothes when I was CASOR President. There is nothing wrong with a sister washing your cloth but there is everything wrong with a sister coming to my house to wash my clothes. I hope you got the difference?

Yes sir.

So I told her the clothes that are dirty have been washed and that I will tell her when other ones get dirty next time. Unfortunately for her, my clothes never got dirty until she graduated. So, she never washed for me.

(General laughter)

They could be admiring you saying presido you look good; you are this and that. Some of those things as a human being may also try to touch you somehow. One has to be very very careful in handling the opposite sex.

Lastly see them as your sisters. I can’t see the sight of me having sex with my blood sister .By blood, Jesus has linked us together. If she is a child of God saved by the blood she is related to me by blood. If i see her as my sister I can’t imagine doing that with her. As a leader, you have the responsibility of building them and not to break them.
