And when Jesus does not do that, he insults him and is almost vividly upset that he is still on the cross.  Many people…More

Their heavy involvement in ministry and their religious Sunday faces gives the impression that they are good husbands. Meanwhile their…More

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

A quick and light glance at the Old Testament and you almost feel as if God is a raging volcano that can never be quenched.

Some try to…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
