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:   […]


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 […]


Yet Another Reflection on Time

On October 4, 2015, in Personal, by july

I have recently been thinking on reshuffling my activities. Over the past month, I’ve done a little bit of assessment on where my time is invested. Knowing where to best invest one’s time in requires prioritizing. Here’s how things work for me. The rule of the thumb is to invest all my time to honor […]


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 […]
