The Abuse of John 3:16

Unconditional love? Is there such a thing? Could you love someone who doesn’t love you back? Would that be the epitome of what perfect love is. If God loves is unconditional, why would he send someone to hell for not obeying him. I hear that all the time.  Things like, “What kind of God is that,  if you don’t do […]

Unseen Blessings

A lot of people dreaded to live in  underdeveloped countries. Western countries has a far better living standards and opportunities. Living here in the States and the Philippines is such a big difference. Here, everything is fast pace and over there is laid back. Each place has its own advantages and disadvantages. We are so busy trying to caught up […]

The Salvation of Fear

Fear has never been so abundant this days.  From conspiracy theories to bible prophecies.  We are inundated by it everyday.  You could do a search on you tube on how many of this so-called prophets and claims that God spoke to them.  Remember Y2K,  2012 or whatever they come up with depending on the month which is base primarily on speculations.  They would set dates that some event will happen.  Only to wash their hands when said event didn’t come true.  I am not here to mock or make fun of such individual, rather to examine our hearts.  To ask our selves what really the motivation behind.  Is it to bring glory to Him or to gain recognition? Is it monetary?  Only God knows the heart.  Deuteronomy 18:22 says, “When a prophet speaks in the name of the LORD, if the thing does not come about or come true, that is the thing which the LORD has not spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.” (NASB) We become obsess with it that we share and preach God’s word through fear instead of sound doctrine, love and kindness.  Do we want to be love because of fear?  I certainly don’t want to.  That’s not love at all.  2 Timothy 1:7 says,“For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”(NASB) It replaces the […]

Act of Kindness

The Christian doctrine revolves around love and kindness.  The love it preaches is beyond any human’s grasp.  For one, to love someone who doesn’t love you back is just absurd and crazy.  Yet, one of Christ’s teachings is not only to love your neighbor but to love your enemies as well.  Most believer could probably do the first one but never the latter. How could you love someone who hates you, to the point that individual wishes you harm.  Looking back before you become born again, we were all enemies of God because of our sin and unrepentant nature and yet God didn’t stop loving us. He love us so much that He sent his one and only Son to save us from His wrath. I was browsing through my facebook.  One of my friends shared this article, about a guy named Carl Panzram. This guy was so vile that I’ll share two of his quotes. “I am the man who goes around the world doing people good. My motto is: Rob em, ***k em and then kill em. That’s me.”   And before his death, “Hurry up, you Hoosier bastard, I could kill ten men while you’re fooling around!”   With those words, right before his death.  I see a person who is full of hatred and vengeance.  I also see a man who is crush, broken in spirit, helpless.  That all he wants is just to end everything, […]

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 […]
