Standard

What is morality? How do you know which one is right or which one is wrong. What are the factors that define good and bad. Does a government mandate that makes something legal morally right? When it’s accepted by the majority and becomes the norm, does that make it good? When it fulfill your desires and pleasures, so long as you’re not hurting anyone. Why is it that the more technologically advance we are, the more backwards we become morally and common sense keep diminishing.  Whether we like it or not there’s always a consequence for every action.  That, no one can deny the outcome of it, that’s how you judge it if it’s good or bad.  Galatians 6:7 even says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.” One of my friend asked me, “How do I know that the Bible is true?”  In which, I simply answer, “It is self evident.  That whatever you sow, that’s what you’ll reap. And yet people blame Christianity for all the problems of society.  That we should do whatever we want.  Never mind if it’s ethical or not, so long as it is legal.  So long as it satisfies one’s desire. There’s only one problem I found with this logic.  None of the Gospel’s teaching were followed.  How could you put the blame into something that you never followed. Never even bother […]

Money and Power – The Primary Driving Force of Humanity

Throughout the inception of humanity, we’ve been conditioned to live and work for two primary things.  Money for one, which is everyone’s primary motive.  The main reason why we live  for the majority of us.  It’s been ingrained in us from the moment we knew how to talk.  From our parents, relatives, friends and the educational system as a whole.  It’s all about making money and more money.  I mean who wouldn’t?  It makes you buy the things you wanted.  The dream house or the fancy car.  The latest technology.  Travel and vacation.  Makes you’re partner happy when you make more.  You don’t have to worry about tomorrow,  if you have an abundance of it.  In other words it gives you a sense of security. After accumulating so much wealth, power comes in play.  You probably wonder why that a lot of billionaires and a few trillionaires, just doesn’t get the satisfaction.  I mean how much is enough?  It reminds me one of  James Bond’s movie, The World is Not Enough.  For a  while it is wealth that we’re trying to cling on to but later you realize that behind for every wealth is power.  It is for this reason  one doesn’t stop from accumulating it.  This is very evident in our society today.  Just look all around you how people are treated base on the material wealth an individual have.  Try observing why you’ll out there, whether you’re shopping, […]

Words of Encouragement

It is hard to give up everything for the sake of our faith.  Once you become a true bible believing Christian, you must live by faith not by sight.  There’s a lot of things you have to give up.  Things that’s impossible to give up but you were able to because of that burning desire for your love of Jesus Christ.  You look you’re old self and you’re amazed and still are that you were able to make that change.  But none of our actions are comparable to what Jesus have done for us.  That is an absolute love.  Having the capability to love someone without returning it. Anything that is contrary to God’s will must be given up.  A lot of people would look at us, we’re crazy and out of our mind.  You can’t really blame them if you look from their perspective, it is crazy.  That’s how faith works, believing something or someone that is unseen.  Giving up on our old self seems an easy task.  The hard part is giving up on your job, friends or even your own family because it hinders your walk with Christ. What makes it harder is when it happens the other way around.  Being rejected because you are a follower of Jesus Christ.  You’re probably sitting alone in your room with head bowed down.  Smoking and drinking just to take the edge off.  Thinking and asking yourself, “Is it worth […]

Death, The Doorway to Judgement

Being born to this world seems like eternity. It gives you a false sense of immortality, remember when you were young. Now that you’ve grown older, life is indeed short and fragile. You might even think that death will never happen to you. None of us dare to talk about it. It doesn’t matter what race or class are you. It is taboo. And yet it is everybody’s destination. There’s  planing for all kind of things. From  careers, birthdays to anniversaries but no one plans for death. Our world today is no better at all. Wickedness abounds. The norm now is what wrong is right and what right is wrong. To make it worse the masses are embracing it. And people wonder why everything is changing from worse to worse. Once in a while or maybe oftentimes you ask yourself this question, “Where is God? Does he even care.” You know like the way He did in the Old Testament. Parting the red sea, making the sun not setting. Sending fire from up above.  All this wars going on. Perversion is at all time high, at every level of society. Liberty is diminishing. Tyranny is flourishing. Being righteous means  persecution and curse. The wicked is ever been bolder. They’re getting rewarded and they’re ruling. As for myself I ask the same thing too, “Where is God?”  I admit that they’re times that I feel He doesn’t exist. I could give […]

Judgement Through Biblical Standard

I was washing the dishes, when suddenly it came to my mind how each and every one of us look just in the sight of our own eyes. Majority of the population are law abiding citizen. How many times we say to ourselves, “I’m glad I’m not like that guy or gal.” A lot of us are so immerse in our physical world, trying to outdo each other. From the point of being born and raise, we’ve always been taught to strive for more. Better job, more money, perfect family or whatever that will satisfy our cravings. These things become a focal point in our lives. It becomes a passion.  The driving principle that permeates our life, to the point that we forget that everything in this world are  temporal. We always think that nothing will ever happen to us. That all is well, we never thought that today could be our last day. How many times you’ve seen someone judging others  according to what they have and not according to their character. For instance, wives whose love for their husband growing cold because of financial reasons. A friend of mine whose family went cold toward him because his business went bankrupt. It is true indeed, what the Bible said in Proverbs 14:20, “The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.” Let’s stop justifying ourselves to our own standard and comparing ourselves to […]

Sowing and Reaping

Is God to be blamed for our troubles? Humanity has at its lowest point in history. We have been reduced to mere animals or even worse, a monster. Animals are more civilized compare to us, because they know the order of natural things. The word human are not applicable to us anymore. Because what makes us human are all gone. What matters now is to do whatever please or suit us in our current situation. Long gone are the days of compassion and forgiveness, to love your neighbor, your fellow-man or even your enemy is now a thing of the past. Wives don’t respect their husbands anymore. Husbands don’t love and care for their wives anymore. Sons and daughters despise their parents. Young people don’t have respect for the elderly, they get beat up, rob, rape and laugh at. Violence, sexual perversion, consumerism and the love of money permeates our lives. Majority of the people doesn’t want to stand up for what is true, right and pure. We rather listen to lies than be set free by the truth. We give up liberty in exchange for security and wealth, so long as we are comfortable. Yet, in spite of all this we wonder why everything is breaking down. We look upon our own leaders and put our trust in man, looking for answers, but things are getting worse and worse. We’ve made ourselves as gods, answering to no one but […]
