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[…]

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,[…]

What If Uriah Had Slept With Bathsheba?

Erm, in case you’re wondering, Bathsheba was that woman who famously took a bath in an open shower and set on fire both the groin of a king and the nation of Israel. Uriah – a gallant and noble infantry officer was her husband. And no, she wasn’t named Bathsheba because she took a bath.[…]

What If King Saul Had Waited For Samuel To Perform The Sacrifice?

Saul has to be one of the most tragic stories in human history. The man blew it big time. He had such a promising start but came to a tragic end. But we seem to be getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s back up a little. King Nahash, king of the Ammonites was a brutal and[…]

What If Noah Had Not Built The Ark?

What if Noah had not built the ark? Well, that would have created all sorts of complications leading up to the Antichrist. And God wanted to maintain extant genetic code to jumpstart a new era of humanity. If any ark was ever going to be built it had to be by Noah. He had a[…]

What If The Bible Never Existed?

What if the Bible never existed? Well, obviously there will be no documentation of all the stuff we know, but that won’t really alter the right of God to adjudicate the lives of men. But we seem to be getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s back up a little. The Bible is four things. First, it[…]

What If Pilate Had Released Jesus?

The killing of Jesus was nothing but judicial murder – a crude political expediency. Jesus was arrested on Friday morning about 2am, in the Garden of Gethsemane. By 3pm he was dead. It was nothing but premeditated murder: “All the high priests and religious leaders met and put finishing touches on their plot to kill[…]

What If Lucifer Had Not Fomented A Revolution In Heaven?

What if Lucifer had not fomented a revolution in heaven? Well, he wouldn’t then have been cast out and one can thus easily leap to the presumption Eve would not have been tempted; and all the troubles in the world would not have been. But we seem to be jumping ahead of ourselves, let’s back[…]

What If God Had Not Created The Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil?

What if God had not created the tree of knowledge of good and evil? Well, that question goes to the very heart of what it means to be human. But we’re jumping ahead of ourselves. Let’s look at the narrative. The creation of man followed a two-part process: first was the material creation, and then[…]

What If Moses Had Begged God To Enter The Promised Land?

What if Moses had begged God to enter the Promised Land? That’s a warm thought. Moses actually begged God. “And I pleaded with the Lord at that time, saying, ‘O Lord God, you have only begun to show your servant your greatness and your mighty hand. For what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do such works[…]
