The Dilemma of Tradition

Everyone is born into a tradition one way or the other. The practice of tradition was to keep the status quo. Paul, the apostle of Jesus Christ, spoke of tradition. See 2 Thessalonians 2:13-15. But we ought always to give thanks to God for you, brothers beloved by the Lord, because God chose you asContinue reading “The Dilemma of Tradition”

The Irony of Disobedience

The Bible in Ecclesiastes 1:9-10 said, What exists now is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done; there is nothing truly new on earth. Is there anything about which someone can say, “Look at this! It is new!”? It was already done long ago, before our time. ÜTruly thereContinue reading “The Irony of Disobedience”

Reformation Went Poof!

I embedded the above youtube video from National Geographic simply to provide a brief summary of the Reformation event. Not endorsing entirely nor denying whatever was written along with the said video on its website, simply because I haven’t entirely read or checked its content – everything except the video itself. Neither am I endorsingContinue reading “Reformation Went Poof!”

Jonah to Nahum, A Story about God

Without a doubt, the story of Jonah is better known than that of Nahum, though both books spoke of God’s judgment against Assyria. In traditional Sunday school setting, perhaps the focus of Jonah’s story would often be that of his adventure – he was swallowed by the great fish for three days and three nightsContinue reading “Jonah to Nahum, A Story about God”

Psalms 34 & 35, the Messianic Psalm of Jesus Christ

John chapters 13-17 covers the story of Jesus Christ with His disciples. The story begins with Jesus and His disciples taking the Passover Meal, so it’s the 14th of Nissan – the beginning of the Jewish Spring Festival. The Jewish day begins at sundown (6pm) to sundown (6pm) – the following day to us. ItContinue reading “Psalms 34 & 35, the Messianic Psalm of Jesus Christ”

The Son of Man, Our Redeemer

In my last blog “Jesus Christ, Our Righteousness” I explained that David was not simply trusting God’s immediate deliverance but rather a future vindication based not on his own but the righteousness of Christ Jesus; see Psalms 35:23-24. Awake and rouse Yourself for my vindication, for my cause, my God and my Lord! Vindicate meContinue reading “The Son of Man, Our Redeemer”

Immanuel, Our Confidence

I went into a writing hiatus due to a circumstance my sibling was facing. I was greatly affected by it ’cause he is thousands of miles away from me, and his wife is going through a health condition. If you have read my blog posting entitled “Regarding Wilmer,” he was the one who offered andContinue reading “Immanuel, Our Confidence”

“Regarding Wilmer”

This blogpost was taken mostly from an article written by Stanley Tiu, who interviewed me about my conversion to Christianity. He narrated the interview for publication at Grace Monthly, a monthly journal for Grace Gospel Church, dated January 2001. I have made a few changes mostly to conceal personal information or names of other people.Continue reading ““Regarding Wilmer””
