Frank Viola on Race Problem and Ferguson

I was privileged to read Frank Viola’s take on the Ferguson’s issue . Refreshing and honest. I think, all in all, the verse below sums it all up: “Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all. Colossians 3:11”

What I’m Reading – A Time to Kill by John Grisham

An old classic. Still impresses me a lot with savvy character development, lively descriptions, and plots that hold you by the throat. Superb work. The book was released in 1989 but the issues it describes still  exists today. Sad. Recent real life events ( shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri ) makes you wonder how some things haven’t really changed.     A Time To Kill: John Grisham: Books

Revelation TV Declares Its Stance on Israel and Gaza

“Israel & Gaza: Does God takes ‘sides’?” was the title of the Revelation TV blog that came into my inbox this week. In it they lamented about the decision of some of their listeners to unsubscribe to Revelation TV because of its recent declarations on the conflict between Israel and Gaza . They wrote that they believe God should be the judge of wrongdoing, Christians should pray for peace, be watchful, and not be manipulated by the media. More significantly, they urged believers to recognise the importance of standing with Israel due to their historical and prophetical significance to Christians.

It is like siding with a fellow Christian, even when he or she has not done well, because they hold a spiritual office. I do

What Am I Born To Do?

“What am I born to do?” is an ongoing question we all ask ourselves. Sometimes we find it, then we lose it, then we find it again. It is so crucial to some of us that we are willing to risk everything to find it. For some, it doesn’t seem to matter. However, there is a great difference between those who are seek answers to this question and those who don’t. The difference lies in their inner lives, the nature of their joy and pain. I was privileged to stumble upon Grant Baldwin ’s podcast, “How Did You Get Into That?” about three weeks ago. It has been a God-inspired discovery. No one forwarded the link to me. I have never heard of it. I was just scrolling through a list of available podcast on my phone and happened to select it for reasons I cannot explain. I encourage anyone seeking his or her life’s purpose to check out Grant Baldwin ’s site and listen to at least one podcast. You will find a signpost or two to help you along your way, I guarantee it.
