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 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[…]

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 There Is No Judgement Day?

What if there’s no Judgment Day? Without a doubt the configuration of human ethics would change. Apprehension about appearing before the judgment seat of God is a great modifier of human behaviour. For theists, it’s at the back of the mind somewhere. The materialistic philosophical framework favoured by atheists will most likely gain traction if[…]

What If Mary Was Not A Virgin?

What if Mary was not a virgin? Oh my, that would create a major credibility crisis for so many people including Jesus. Many of his claims would become disputed and disputable. But we seem to be getting ahead of ourselves, let’s back up a little. Prophet Isaiah was known for dramatic prophecies, including that prophecy[…]

What If Satan Was Not Created?

What if Satan was not created? Well, it’s tempting to say we’ll all breathe a sigh of relief, after all there’ll be no more temptations. But that won’t be true and the reason is because we won’t know any different. If Satan wasn’t created, we won’t know what being tempted by Satan is. But we[…]

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[…]
