The vaccinated, hesitant, anti-vaxxers, and faith.

It is not true that the vaccinated have no faith in God. It is also not true that the hesitant and anti-vaxxers don’t have faith in science. In reality, the vaccinated, the hesitant, and the anti-vaxxers are all “walking by faith.” Yes, they are. We are taught faith is stepping into the unknown, and usually, […]

On Christian women and the pursuit of purpose and destiny.

If we say to Christian women that their worth and identity is in their pursuit of purpose and destiny and reaching for their dreams, the more we will see depression, anger, bitterness, hopelessness, and even suicide numbers rise among Christian women. Suppose a Christian woman’s worth and identity are in their pursuit of purpose and […]

on christian men and work

I have seen a few posts on social media from Christian leaders castigating men who “sit at home and watch TV all day”. Moreover, they use 2 Thessalonians 3:10 to justify their stance.  The more we say to Christian men that their worth and identity is in their employment status, the more we will see […]

work it or lose it

StatsSA, in their 2001 census report and 2016 Community Survey tell us that almost 80% of the South African population adheres to the Christian faith, which means 8 out of 10 people reading this post are born again Christians or culturally identify as Christians.

An Exhaustion observed

An observation I have made through the years after observing the lives of many Christians, what they believe about God, what they know about the gospel of grace, is a certain level of exhaustion that is unnatural. I have come across too many exhausted and weary Christians. These Christians are committed and passionate about their […]

Jesus our chief cupbearer and chief baker

Two guys, Pharaoh’s chief cupbearer and chief baker, are in jail. They committed severe offences against Pharaoh. In ancient Egypt, Pharaoh held his prisoners in a particular prison, the reason being, if he found them not guilty, he would reinstate them, and if found guilty, executed immediately. Serving Pharaoh was a dangerous career path. In the same […]

He who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty

I stumbled on this verse in the book of Job. Job 6:14 ESV He who withholds kindness from a friend forsakes the fear of the Almighty. Of course, Job is in the Old Testament; therefore, the verse reads as it should within the Old Covenant context. The Old Covenant? Short refresher. The Old Covenant was […]

THE MAN WHO DISOBEYED JESUS AND GOT AWAY WITH IT.

Over the years, every time I read this story, I make a side note with these words “hahaha” or “lol”. I read that story today and wrote the same.  It’s the story of a leper, rather a former leper who disobeyed Jesus and got away with it. Sounds bad, right? Matthew, Mark and Luke refer […]

In our 9th year of marriage, we share the main thing we’ve learnt

In our 9th year of marriage, this is what we have learnt. Jenny and I have learnt to laugh loudly, deeply and unhibited. We laugh at each other. We laugh with each other. We laugh at each other’s mistakes, failures, and weaknesses. We mimic and then laugh at each other’s grunts and faces we make […]
