The Order of Melchizedek

We all know Melchizedek, right? He’s become very popular of late over the issue of tithes though he had always been a celebrity. He was a king actually, the king of Salem, back in the days of Abraham. (Genesis 14:18) We really don’t know much about his background – his family, his kingdom, his accomplishments…[…]

Understanding Tithing (Part 4)

This is the concluding part of the series, Understanding Tithing. We began the series three weeks ago to clear misconceptions about tithing. In Part 1, we looked at the historicity of tithing – how tithing began. It began with a gentleman named Abraham. We saw the two regimes of tithe in scriptures – elective and[…]

Understanding Tithing (Part 3)

Two weeks ago we began the discussion on Understanding Tithing. In Part 1, we discovered why Christians can’t tithe according to the book of Deuteronomy or Malachi – we’re not under the Law. In Part 2, we examined the rationale behind tithing. We concluded tithing is elective in the New Testament. It is not compulsory.[…]

Understanding Tithing (Part 2)

Last week we began discussion on Understanding Tithing. We saw the two regimes of tithe in the Bible. The first regime is the Abrahamic regime. The second regime is the regime of the Law – Law of Moses or Ten Commandments. We examined how tithing came about in the Bible and the reasons Abraham and[…]

Understanding Tithing (Part 1)

There are two regimes of tithe in the Bible. The first regime is the Abrahamic regime. The second regime is the regime of the Law. That’s shortcode for the Law of Moses. It’s also known as regime of the Ten Commandments – the body of legislation enacted to regulate the nascent nation of Israel. It[…]

In The Beginning (Part 2)

In The Beginning (Part 2) – another free chapter from The Genesis Project, a new book by Leke Alder. Last week we began discussion on how the Universe came into being. We touched on time, timelessness, dimensions and dimensional limitations. Today, we’ll be looking at the concluding part by examining the dimensions of God –[…]

In The Beginning (Part 1)

In The Beginning – another free chapter from The Genesis Project, a new book by Leke Alder. The Universe and everything we see is made up of matter. Matter did not exist before the beginning of time.  It was created “in the beginning.”  If you are a frequent traveller like I am, you may have[…]

The Sound of Genesis

About the age of ten, my cousin who had just secured employment in an electronics trading company gave me an invaluable present. She gave me a beautiful compact radio about the size of a fairly large phone today. The front panel was yellow while the back was black. It was wrapped in cellophane inside a[…]

What If God Did Not Exist?

That is a very, very big theological question. But as you’ll see it’s also a scientific and philosophical question too. The simple and straightforward theological answer is, you won’t be alive to ask that question if God didn’t exist. But we seem to be getting ahead of ourselves, let’s back up a little. —— One[…]

What If Adam And Eve Had Repented?

What if Adam and Eve had repented? Could the curse have been reversed one might ask, after all God is merciful? But the issues in the Eden Scandal were very complex. So many legal and constitutional issues thrown up. The resolution would prove tough even for God and it would take millennia. But we seem[…]

What If God Saved Everyone From The Consequence Of Their Sins?

What if God saved everyone from the consequence of their sins? Truth is, He has! Jesus died to save the world. “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into[…]

What If Peter Had Not Denied Jesus?

There are those invocations we make that are lacking in efficacy and for that, we ought to thank God. Take the cock-crow experience of Peter. When he was called out as a follower of Christ Peter rained curses on himself in very vehement denial. (Matthew 26:73-75) It’s not exactly a far-fetched scenario. Some, for example,[…]
