I present some nuggets from Illuminare in 2018. Enjoy!
Today’s Illuminare is going to sound crazy, and daring. But the essence of Illuminare is the faith-based exploration of boundaries of reason. So here we go.

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[…]
