Lights, Camera, Action!

In a way, we are all Public Relations officers. We spend most of our time managing and manipulating appearances. We care too much what people think about us. And of course it is not wrong to care what people think of us. Jesus calls us to be a light to the world. The salt of … Continue reading Lights, Camera, Action!

You Don’t Need God to be Good [By a Christian]

Kamau wa Kibe does not believe in God. In fact, He doesn't believe there is such a thing as a god. He is an atheist and he believes he can do good all by himself. Mary Wangari is a Christian and she believes human beings can only do bad by themselves. She believes that you need … Continue reading You Don’t Need God to be Good [By a Christian]

Reaching the Lost at Any Cost

Nowadays, it seems more important to please the world than to please the church (please note I said please the "church" not please "God") -- even though the Bible says we should prioritize those in the household of faith.

This was especially more insightful when compared and contrasted to the problem of pain: Although I agree that the problem of pain may be one of the greatest challenges … Continue reading Ravi Zacharias on the Problem of Pleasure

Where Is the Lord Leading You? (Sunday@MHC)

I can't help but think that the people in the Old Testament had it easy when it came to hearing from God. At least then, God would speak directly and audibly through the prophets. Hebrews 1:1 confirms it; "In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways," But … Continue reading Where Is the Lord Leading You? (Sunday@MHC)

I Want to be a People Pleaser

We are hard-wired for justice, and sometimes injustice (when we are the ones on the wrong). We always want mercy for ourselves and justice for others. Self-preservation is the default human-instinct. Darwin defined it as a dog-eat-dog, survival-for-the-fittest, world. This is the reality on the ground, presently. But is this the ideal? Is this what … Continue reading I Want to be a People Pleaser
