Book Review: Am I Truly Saved? by John Musyimi

I've been a Christian for almost 15 years now, give or take. The thing is, I am not always sure I am a Christian. I am also not sure if the first time I raised my hand and “gave my life to Christ” was really the time I got “born again.” I am not even sure if … Continue reading Book Review: Am I Truly Saved? by John Musyimi

Why I (Sort of) Support the SCOTUS Ruling on Gay Marriage

Christians in the US did not lose the culture war when the Supreme Court ruled in favor of gay marriage – because Christians have never won any culture war. In fact, I dare say Christians are not even expected to, let alone commanded to, win culture wars. Let me explain.

Let Me Be Your Strength – A Letter From My Father

Dear Child, I saw you trembling with fear. From my throne, I felt the hairs on the back of your neck rising. The cold sweat chilled my spine too, your troubled heart tripped my heart-beat too. I heard your cries, I noticed every shade of doubt in your eyes... So do not fear, for I … Continue reading Let Me Be Your Strength – A Letter From My Father

Lyrical Review: Appointment by Jimmy Gait ft Cece

I will say it up-front, Jimmy Gait's new song, "Appointment" is both simple and beautiful, I guess that makes it simply beautiful? As usual, I will go straight to the lyrics, for that's my niche in these reviews. I have not been able to locate any online links containing the lyrics. But I wrote them … Continue reading Lyrical Review: Appointment by Jimmy Gait ft Cece
