Truth Matters

That is the declaration of Jesus Christ about Himself and His Word, see John 14:6. “Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.’” In Hebrews 9:28, the Bible said: “So also the Messiah (Jesus Christ), having been offered once toContinue reading “Truth Matters”

Look Up, Not Down

Sometimes even Christians feel and look defeated. If so, read Psalm 37. The first two verses said, “Fret not yourself because of evildoers; be not envious of wrongdoers. For they will soon fade like the grass and wither like the green herb.” Then in verses 7-9, the Psalmist continued, “Be still before the LORD andContinue reading “Look Up, Not Down”

Good News or Fake News?

It has been more than a month since we were hit by Typhoon Rai. Practically all our basic utilities were rendered unavailable. No power, no water and no internet. Both power and water are now back in our area, but a lot of areas remain powerless and have no water. Until now, our internet remainsContinue reading “Good News or Fake News?”

Parousia Myths

Despite clear utterance from the Lord Jesus Christ that His return or parousia would be during the lifetime of the apostles, it has been rejected and denied by the futurists – actually, that includes majority of professing Christians. See my blog “Confused Christianity” on Jesus’ assurance concerning His return. One of the most often usedContinue reading “Parousia Myths”

Hallucinations of a Rapture

One of the major doctrines of the futurist camp has to do with the belief of a rapture. Futurists are those who supposed the Return of Jesus Christ is yet to happen. See my blog “Confused Christianity” for the futurist perspective. Again, as I have said in my previous blog (Delusions of Rebuilding the Temple)Continue reading “Hallucinations of a Rapture”

Confused Christianity

Without a doubt, the 21st Christianity comes in many shapes and forms. Christians differ in doctrines, but they seem to be unified believing that the return of Jesus Christ is still in the future, though it has been millennia since Jesus promised His apostles that He will be coming in their generation. See Matthew 16:27-28.Continue reading “Confused Christianity”

True Riches

The Gospels contain parables. Jesus spoke a lot of parables, not always to conceal the truth but sometimes to speak the truth. The Nelson’s New Illustrated Bible Dictionary defined “Parable” as “a short, simple story designed to communicate a spiritual truth, religious principle, or moral lesson; a figure of speech in which truth is illustratedContinue reading “True Riches”

The Eschatological Divide

The Hastings’ Dictionary of the Bible defined “eschatology” as The department of theology which is concerned with the “last things,” that is, with the state of individuals after death, and with the course of human history when the present order of things has been brought to a close. It includes such matters as the consummationContinue reading “The Eschatological Divide”

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”
