The Crippling Future of Christianity

On July 21, 2015, in Christian Living, Insights, by july

The future of Christianity is not a pleasant sight. What the world has seen from the days gone by, the centuries of battles, either with blood or with words has forced Christianity into the cave that it is in today. When one looks at the issues prowling around the defenseless Christians, the reality will take the […]

 

A Penguin’s View On Gay Marriage – Why Throw Muds If We Can Build Bridges?

On June 29, 2015, in Christian Living, Insights, Personal, by july

In any debate, it is very easy to misrepresent one side by building up a straw man in order to debunk it. It is unfortunate that in building straw men, there can hardly be any advancement in conversations.  As such, by being either gay or Christian, it is near impossible to push forward one’s cause […]

 

Mentoring Paradigm – Effective Leaders Lead with Humble Boldness

On June 14, 2015, in Christian Living, Insights, Leadership, Personal, by july

A Christian life should be modeled in nothing else apart from the Trinity. Just as each distinct person of the Trinity is identified on the context of a relationship [1], so too must we, Christians, identify ourselves in the context of relationships. Man is not meant to live alone. In Genesis 2:18, God even thought […]

Why The Workers Remain Few

On March 1, 2015, in Christian Living, by july

It must’ve been Divine Appointment among anything else when I began to sit down and think about this two weeks ago.  How much push have Christians really made over the past year to live in obedience to the great commission? Don’t get me wrong.  I am a member of one of the best churches I […]

 

The Price of Making Disciples

On June 26, 2014, in Christian Living, by july

Discipling people is like investing in the stock market.  You pay the price now, hoping that the drudgery is worth it all.  I remember not long back, praying to the Lord for the exact same thing.  ”Lord,” I said, “let this be worth it.  Let this be worth it all.” I dreaded the job of […]

 

Why It Matters Whether Jesus was God and Whether Jesus was Raised?

On April 17, 2014, in Apologetics, Christian Living, Doctrines, by july

On November 3, 2013, in Christian Living, by july

There is no denying the power love has in stirring people to do something they wouldn’t otherwise do had they fail to feel the reality of love.  Studies have shown time and again that if one wants to motivate a person to do something, the first thing he must do is to tap on the […]

 

A Quick Glance on Servant Leadership

On May 5, 2013, in Christian Living, Leadership, Personal, by july

The year was 2008.  The month and day, now absent from my memory.  It was the first Bible Study I conducted.  One couldn’t possibly measure the fear I had back then.  To learn to trust that the Spirit would teach you what to say (Luke 12:12) while at the same time falling far short in […]

On April 4, 2013, in Christian Living, Insights, Personal, by july

A few hours in the course of reading, I found myself constantly distracted by a little girl throwing tantrums right in front of me. Sitting next to her is the mother, occasionally reprimanding the child for her misdeeds. The kid was furious; Obviously wanting things to go her way. She would even bite the hand […]
