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 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 Daniel Had Died In The Lion’s Den?

If there’s nothing we learn from Daniel’s story, it’s how treacherous the corridors of power can be. It’s a cloak and dagger world and full of long shadows. In that world, brilliance can be severely punished. But we seem to be getting ahead of ourselves, let us back up a little. Daniel was a gifted[…]

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 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 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 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[…]
