Have you ever had bitterness rule your heart? A few years ago, I battled with entrenched bitterness towards a brother in the faith. We disagreed fundamentally on a biblical doctrinal issue. It wasn’t my first time to share divergent views with anyone in the faith. However I had no idea that this particular one would sting so badly. We were…More

How did Joseph, son of Jacob, manage to mitigate a global-level famine catastrophe and save the lives of hundreds of thousands of people (if not millions)?

This week, I was teaching a workshop on sexuality to some teenagers and I said “Sex is a great thing!” About three of them giggled. A few of them blushed and many looked at me as if I had said some unpardonable words. After some further interaction with them, I realised that most of them had lived all their teenage…More

If there was a time in my life when repentance was an affront, it is the time I struggled with a pornography and masturbation addiction. Repentance became an affront because I had done it so many times and I was still stuck in my sin. It was also an affront because it reminded me how useless I had been rendered…More
