Question Hi Ernest. Thanks for your blogs. I’m learning quite a lot from them. I know many people ask you questions about relationships, but mine’s different. I’m learning about apologetics and contending for the Christian faith. I used to think it was unbiblical until I read Paul doing that when he reasoned with the Jews from the scriptures and challenged…More

Recently, a friend of mine asked me to help advise some couple friends who were tired of their new marriage. They were even considering calling it quits. Their fights were no longer cute disagreements about toothpaste and socks in the living rooms. They had reached an upscale war of vicious fights and quarrels and nobody was backing out. No infidelity…More

Pastor Timothy Keller once said, “The Bible is not about you.”  He is right. The Bible is about one central character- Jesus. Jesus Christ is not a random character who appeared in the 40th book in the Bible i.e. Matthew. Jesus was not the plan B of salvation after plan A of the Law “failed.” Jesus is the main theme of the…More

Hi Ernest, your blog articles have helped me a lot. Please don’t stop writing. Often we criticize men of God when they fail and keep mum when they do well. I think it is a disservice to the Body of Christ. I’m learning to appreciate the people God is using to build me. But that’s not why I am writing. I have…More

Question Hi Ernest. I would like to say thank you for the ministry that you and your wife are doing. I have personally been blessed and I have learned to put my trust in Christ whenever I face obstacles in my life. But I’m writing to you on a different note. I am a born again Christian and I was…More

In January we received an email that signed off like this: “I have started reading Lust and the City. I’m happy to have the book with me. But one thing is that I want God to deliver me for this porn and masturbation problem. Please support me in prayers.”  My wife and I get many emails like those. During the month of…More

“She doesn’t drink, she doesn’t smoke, she doesn’t sleep around. She must be a born-again Christian.” How many times have you heard that? Too many people in our post-modern culture would agree with that statement. Too many people are wrong. The truth is that our world is filled with many morally upright people who believe that their good behaviour equals…More

The gender wars on how men should love women and how women should love men have flooded the blogosphere. Often, several readers inbox me soliciting my advice as well. I frequently point them to the scriptures and the responses are not very exciting. Perhaps they wanted some avant-garde view that had never been heard of before. They hoped I would…More

It’s a new year and I know that many are excited. For the follower of Christ we know the scriptures that teach “The end of a matter is better than its beginning, and patience is better than pride.” Ecclesiastes 7:8 (NIV). The quality of the year is not evaluated by our new year plans and promises. Rather its quality is determined at…More

Exodus 20:3 has the first commandment of the Decalogue: “You shall have no other gods but me.” With the biblical and historical background of Israel written for us, we can easily point out the idols- the golden calf, the Baal statues, the Asherah poles and the molded pagan deities. It is easy to look at all those and think, “Well, I definitely…More

 This piece below is an excerpt from a novel that I began to write but I haven’t completed yet. I titled the novel Flashpoint, but I haven’t concluded on that yet. Flashpoint was meant to serve as a sequel to The Human Temple. Happy reading! Chapter 1 Terrible Beginnings Nairobi, Kenya. The Present. No man had ever hit Tracy Kimani. No man…More

It was once bizarre, but now very common to hear, “Get born again and Jesus will get you a husband.” Or “Get born again and you will heal very quickly from your break-up.” Or “Get saved and God will take away all your financial problems.” Present-day Christendom has been filled with a barter-trade gospel message that suggests God is trading…More

When man walked on the moon, the world was amazed for a while. When God walked on the earth, the world was amazed for a lifetime. Centuries on and the man Jesus Christ remains the most iconic, most influential and most intriguing character in all of history. The God-man’s terrestrial assignment, in his own admission, involved bridging the gap between…More

When my wife and I are out ministering, we often ask believers what they do to avoid falling into the temptation of sexual sin. One of the number one responses that we hear is run like Joseph! If not Joseph, run like a Kenyan gold medalist! If you don’t know the story of Joseph, here is an excerpt that inspires that response:…More

I have attended many weddings since our own and I can’t help but notice something key in the fantastic sermons prepared by pastors for the bride and groom. Pastor John Wesley Nguuh preached in our wedding from Colossians 1 and 2 and he too did a great job at giving us last minute pieces of advice before we became man…More
