Climbing the mount everest of eternal life

Rich men don’t run after passers-by in the street. Nevertheless, in the scriptures, a “rich young ruler” is shown running after Jesus. When he finally gets to him, he does something equally unusual: he falls down on his knees at his feet. What does he want that money cannot buy?

The Greatest Blessing of all

You want to see a man that is blessed, don’t ask what kind of job he has. Don’t ask how much he has in the bank.

Christians insist we are children of Abraham, even without doing the works of Abraham. We sing repeatedly: “Abraham’s blessings are mine. I am blessed in the morning, I am blessed in the evening; Abraham’s blessings are mine.” But since we have been appropriating Abraham’s blessings, we have not become rich. Something must be wrong somewhere otherwise Christians should be the richest people on earth today.

Great Expectations (2)

2016 was a terrible year for John the Baptist. His expectations were not met. He walked with God, kept on the side of righteousness and preached the gospel.

The believer’s authority

Jesus was a man under God’s authority. This placed him: “far above all principality and power and might and dominion.” (Ephesians 1:21-23). He exercised complete authority in all areas of life. He healed the sick and cleansed the lepers, exercising authority over sickness. He stilled the storm and walked on water, exercising authority over nature.

What Does God Want?

If you have been to some churches lately, you can be forgiven if you conclude the one thing God wants from believers is our money. Every trick or witchcraft is used in the churches today to squeeze money from church-goers in the deception that for every kobo you give, God will give you a hundredfold return.

The Bible is not infallible (2)

There are four gospels in the New Testament bible said to have been written by Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. However, these books were written anonymously, there were no names in any of the original manuscripts. As Rev. Dr. Hooykaas says: “The titles placed above them in our Bibles owe their origin to a later ecclesiastical tradition which deserves no confidence whatever.”
