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 […]

 

A Modified Irenaean Theodicy

On July 24, 2016, in Apologetics, Insights, by july

A Theodicy is a means of showing how God can coexist with evil. Most theodicies come in the form of arguing that the free will of man is the cause of evil. However,  it is not able to account for certain forms of evils such as natural evil. This version of theodicy, though in its […]

 

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 […]

 

The Supremacy of the Trinity part 1 – Defining God

On October 8, 2015, in Apologetics, Doctrines, Insights, Philosophy, Trinity, by july

The most important thing one must remind himself of when trying to understand the nature of God is to set the boundaries of what he may attribute God with by means of definition. Unless one has a proper definition of God as a starting point, he will inevitably stand in murky waters as he furthers […]

 

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 […]

 

Reflections on Time, Reading and Eternity

On July 29, 2015, in Insights, Personal, by july

There’s this still surviving superstition in the Philippines saying that babies born at around midnight are known to be daring. I (or at least I have been told that I) was born some time around midnight. It turns out, some superstitions just aren’t always true, and this is one of them. I very rarely take […]

 

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 […]
