On The Value of Epistemic Humility in The Quest For Godliness and the Apprehension of Reality

On June 20, 2017, in Christian Living, Insights, by july

Last week I was discussing some thoughts on the metaphysics of nominalism with a fellow student in the same program as me. The idea stems from my paper on the Modified Irenaean Theodicy in which I proposed a model by which to account for evil without falling into the trap of Augustinian variant, the Irenaean […]

 

The Foundational Value of Theistic Realism in Moral Discourses

On December 19, 2016, in Apologetics, Christian Living, by july

In this paper, I explored the value of positing the existence of God and abstract objects for moral discourses to be meaningful. There’s certainly a lot more to explore and that I’ve only worked on the tip of the iceberg. I’m grateful to my Professor, Scott Smith for bouncing ideas with me as I develop […]

 

Of Lenses and Reflections – The Apologetics of Godliness

On July 15, 2016, in Apologetics, Christian Living, by july

“If the soldiers enrolled by you, and who have taken the military oath, prefer their allegiance to their own life, and parents, and country, and all kindred, though you can offer them nothing incorruptible, it were verily ridiculous if we, who earnestly long for incorruption, should not endure all things, in order to obtain what […]

 

Our Daily Bread and the Trivializing of Scriptures

On February 8, 2016, in Christian Living, Insights, by july

2016 has just begun. As usual, the Christian practice of taking a fresh copy of Our Daily Bread off the shelf for a low sum is not a rare sight. For many years, Our Daily Bread and other similar devotional materials have made their way into the Christian mainstream. In a bid to bridge the […]

 

Revelation 2:12-17 – Who are the Nicolaitans (and Balaam and Antipas)?

On January 1, 2016, in Christian Living, by july

Last Sunday, the message in a church I attended zeroed in on Revelation 2:12-17. The Book of Revelation has often been cryptic, more so to the average person who have read it only a few times. For instance, the Seven Churches of Asia are sometimes interpreted symbolically. One time, I recalled hearing from some radio […]

 

Five Questions Every Professing Christian Needs To Answer

On December 8, 2015, in Christian Living, by july

Saint Paul, a trailbrazer for Christianity in many parts of Asia and Europe once dictated these words to Tertius, “Do not be conformed to the patterns of this world.” (Romans 12:2). Almost prophetically, Paul warns against the lust of the flesh, the apathy of the mind, and the corruption of the soul. The same Paul […]

 

Redefining Romans 14 – Where Prudence is Sacrificed on the Altar of Pleasure

On October 26, 2015, in Christian Living, by july

Romans 14 has always been among the most interesting chthose whos in the Epistle. In it, every Bible obedient Christian is instructed to handle food consumption with care. Alcohol consumption has always been a cultural taboo in the East Asian context, more so in areas of Muslim majority. Consider this video by Ahmed Deedat:   […]

 

How A Matthean Priority Over Markan Priority Affect Scholarly Interpretation of The Gospel Authorship and Transmission

On September 19, 2015, in Apologetics, Christian Living, Insights, by july

Why I’m writing this: It’s 2:30AM and I can’t sleep. Will this help you: I don’t know. For those who are in the same journey of faith as me you may be. I thought this is interesting but of course, I’m not a scholar so this is obviously a layman interpretation of data. One of which I […]

 

Mentoring Paradigm – Good Mentors Find Their Identity In Christ

On August 30, 2015, in Christian Living, Insights, Leadership, Personal, by july

One time when I was having dinner with a friend, this question came to my mind: “where do you get your identity from?” It dawned on me that Christians strangle their walk with God because they get their identity in who they are, not whose they are. I write this as a hypocrite. As much […]

 

Reflections on Mentoring

On August 14, 2015, in Christian Living, Insights, Leadership, by july

One of the worst things a leader can do to himself is to think that he’s made it to the top. This cannot be further from the truth. No one can touch the pinnacle of leadership in this world. There are always more things to learn. In fact, the more I know, the more I […]
