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 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)

Dan Brown in his novel, “The Da Vinci Code” indeed asserted Jesus had a biological offspring. Now you know why Apostle John was said to have fled a bathhouse almost naked when he[…]

The Dimensions Of God’s Vision

This post will challenge your thinking, force you to unthink suppositions, and re-reason certain assumptions about Christianity. First, we need to get out of religion. Religiosity obfuscates truth about Christianity. Religion is man’s attempt to make meaning[…]

Church Ushering

  #Illuminare will be editorial this morning. I am beaming a searchlight on the ushering protocol in churches, interrogating the convention. Ushering is an administrative protocol of a local church, not a ministerial calling. It is nonetheless an important duty. Ushering is a diaconate assignment. We can thus fit it under the broad spectrum of the[…]

The Larger Picture

Good morning! Yesterday, we looked at the operational CONTEXT of the 21st century church. We saw that we cannot operate outside the purview of the dispensations of God and that there are economic dispensations apart from spiritual dispensations. A dispensation is an epochal calendar of God. It divides God’s program for the Earth into epochs[…]
