THE MAN WHO DISOBEYED JESUS AND GOT AWAY WITH IT.
Over the years, every time I read this story, I make a side note with these words “hahaha” or “lol”. I read that story today and wrote the same. It’s the story of a leper, rather a former leper who disobeyed Jesus and got away with it. Sounds bad, right? Matthew, Mark and Luke refer … Continue reading THE MAN WHO DISOBEYED JESUS AND GOT AWAY WITH IT.
We do it for the sake of others
Those saying COVID-19 only affects the elderly, and those with underlying health issues are callous and inhumane, to say the least. Those dead from the COVID-19 were grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, children, friends, colleagues, and neighbors. Each of these was connected to others in multitudinous ways, therefore, their deaths affected them. If my … Continue reading We do it for the sake of others
Why God’s tests and discipline scared me to death and what I’ve discovered through the gospel
If there’s one thing I’ve heard repeatedly in my Christian journey has been this, God tests and disciplines using tragedies and calamities to teach us lessons—to strengthen us, make us wiser, and better. For somebody averse to doctor’s appointments, police station visits to apply for a police clearance certificate, the sight of traffic police on … Continue reading Why God’s tests and discipline scared me to death and what I’ve discovered through the gospel

If you are suffering, get yourself this friend ASAP
5 min read A young man speaks up in Job’s conversations with his friends. Job’s friends, elderly and experienced, had spoken first. They had given Job advice on why he was suffering.

On Obama and leadership
Obama, Obama, Obama. This man elicits highly charged responses depending on which side of the racial, spiritual, and political divide one stands. He is the world’s most ignorant leader according to some, or the smartest we have ever seen on the international stage in our generation. He is an antichrist to some and a Christian, … Continue reading On Obama and leadership
