The Political Dimension Of The Church (Part 1)

The church is a spiritual federation. The architecture of the church is similar to that of the internet. There’s no single point of failure. The gates of hell cannot prevail. Matthew 16:18. The brand architecture of the church is what we will call endorsed brand architecture in my line of work. There are various forms[…]

Total Man (Part 8) – Good Versus Evil

God is an arborist, among other hobbies. He specialises in the cultivation and care of trees and shrubs, does tree surgery. Over and over again we see his interest in trees in scriptures. He keeps using arboricultural analogies: “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you,[…]

Remembrance VIII: Back To Basics

Even if we can’t agree on many things about God one thing we can all agree on is, and this from the evidence before us, God is super intelligent. In acknowledgement of God’s intelligence, John declared him the Logos. John 1:1. Logos is the principle of divine reason and creative order. It’s the code running[…]

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[…]
