Beware of False Prophets
The Naga Blog is a forum on facebook where Nagas from around the world network, share ideas and discuss a wide range of topics from politics and philosophy to music and current events in Nagaland and beyond. The blog is not owned by any individual, nor is it affiliated to or associated with any political party or religion. The only movement it hopes to stir is the one raised by the voices of the Nagas every step of the way, amassing perhaps to mass consciousness one day. www.facebook.com/groups/thenagablog
Len Ao: I had been constantly suffering from headache so one of my friend took me to a visionary. When he looked at me he told me that I had brain tumor and that I have to start my treatment from him which cost 8k per treatment. When I told him that I need to console a doctor first, this guy told me that nobody can cure me except his medicine, traitor! Our society need to wake from such prediction.
King Terho Letou: Many people are using the name of our Almighty GOD and cheating the common people. It is becoming a trend. It's clearly written in the bible that during the second-coming of Jesus, many false prophets will arise. So, we should see that we are not fooled by those false prophets. And, we need to go to the doctors to let them diagnose our sickness and prescribe medicines. We need to refrain from soothsayers who are just cheap cheating fellows. With these few lines, I don't mean that we should stop believing in those people with whom God shows us His wonderful works but to keep watch of ourselves so that we may not fall into the trap of Satan! And I saw a beautiful line in a doctor's room some years ago. It says: "God could not be everywhere to take care of our sickness so He created a Doctor!!" So let’s make use of the Doctors whom God created for us.
Kingdoms: I want to share this info to the general public. Last year, a famous Chinese-American ENT specialist from USA visited CIHSR (Referral hospital) Dimapur and I assisted him. We saw around 40 patients and their complaints were the same "Sinus ase ho". Surprisingly, only 2 patients had sinusitis. The rest had allergic rhinitis and so on. He was like, "what the heck?". My point is, don't jump in to conclusion that you have sinusitis just because you have headache and stuffy nose.

13. It was the accepted practice in Babylon 4,000 years ago that for a month after the wedding, the bride's father would supply his son-in-law with all the mead he could drink. Mead is a honey beer and because their calendar was lunar based, this period was called the honey month, which we know today as the honeymoon.
