Were you part of the scripture union in High School or you were one of those that those of the scripture union as a bunch of weirdos and social misfits? Well, no matter whom you are, this is gonna be lit! Truth! Truth! Truth!
There are many funny and happy moments I can recall from the scripture union. Apart from the general happy moments like the rallies and the….rallies.
When they declare a fast and you know in your heart of hearts that you won’t do it but have to develop a Pharisee fasting strategy. Walking around like you’re weak like every member of the scripture union whilst you’ve made sure you are heavily satisfied before school. Skipping dining for the canteen and meeting your fellow Pharisee faster eating like crazy!
S.U people are really different oo. We do everything in pride and dignity! It is expected that you’d bump fists and Pharisee fast together but you will still maintain a serious face as if you are angry at each other and eat with a frown on deterring the other from daring to talk about it. Those were hilarious moments at least for the Pharisee fasters!
‘Always leave one eye open’ people
There are people that always leave one eye open at meetings; some for fear of the screaming and yelling that happens and others just to look out for his own safety just in case someone slaps him when he gets possessed by some spirit. Or to see if the fine girl he is after is a witch!
Holy Spirit Stopper
I never knew the holyspirit could be stopped so fast and those being ‘delivered’ and on the floor could also rise that quickly till Mr.Ampiaw( a well feared teacher) walks into a meeting and stops it. I was shocked the first day it happened. The holyspirit ceased immediately! Those screaming stopped…those rolling on the floor quickly stood up! What a wow! I was amazed!
There were personal unforgettable moments too.
I am with you in spirit.
I can never forget the times where the Scripture Union President whom we deemed as most spiritual than we were used to use that same spirituality to deceive us only when it’s time for dawn prayers. He will usually tell us to wake up at dawn so that we all pray together but usually when he is tired and deep in sleep, he’d just turn and tell us in a sleepy voice,” Go! I am with you in spirit” He expects us to believe him and leave him in peace! Why are you Jesus?!
“Evans in trouble”
I remember like yesterday when a friend who was not part of the leadership team of scripture union made a mistake to join one of our meetings. Usually people stayed away from those. For whatever reason, he joined on that day and that was a mistake of his life. That day we had tough ‘deliverance’ going on. This uninvited friend was caught up in the middle of it when the ‘demon’ started to talk to him. You could see terror in his eyes as he prayed harder than I had ever seen him pray before. An image I could not stop laughing at was the moment where the room turned boiling hot and it was obvious he wanted to leave but couldn’t because it was really late and leaving that place to his room alone was obviously a horrific thought. He removed his singlet squeezed the sweat out of it and continued praying not because he wanted to but because he feared if he didn’t pray as hard. Oh my God…that was funny!
“Spit in his mouth”
My best friend was just about joining the leadership team so there were some types of prayers that needed to be said. And one of them was to get the gift of the holy spirit in tongues speaking. He did not believe so much in tongue speaking at the time but I remember him feeling obliged to speak it. I was at the meeting when after teachings on tongue speaking they begun to say a prayer for those who weren’t speaking in tongues. It was done in the dormitory by our junior. Some annoying boy bi. He was so boisterous and energized about the whole thing than anyone at the meeting. He kept telling him, “Open your mouth and speak!” He then held my friend’s chin and started to yell, “Open your mouth and speak!” Just when my friend decided to say something so that he will let him go, his junior’s continuous yelling deposited a thick sputum into his mouth! My friend quickly closed his mouth and never tried to speak a word again. I bet he would smacked the tongues out of this junior if we weren’t at a Scripture union meeting.
Witches & Wizard Rumors
Most people loved it when I spoke to them about God and the importance of joining Scripture union till they actually get there. They were often scared whenever the screaming and the falling started. “What was that?” they’d often ask. “Were they witches and wizards?” was one question that sent me sprawling in laughter all the time. They come out thinking so, “Kofi, my sitting partner is a wizard and I didn’t know” “Eiii there are witches in this school papa!” No matter the explanation you give them, they hardly break away from the thought that they are witches and wizards. To them, every scream is an indication of witches and wizards like in the movies. I am sure a reader is still thinking, but they were witches? HAHAHAHAHAHA. Love you!
