This year I have been privileged to learn some really important life lessons, albeit the hard way. The biggest struggle of my heart this year has been to forgive.

STRUGGLING WITH UNFORGIVENESS One of the bona fide insignias of a truly born again believer is a forgiving heart.

It isn’t wrong to say that we are living in a generation with a tremendous sense of self-importance. If you point this out as a problem, the critics will accuse you of not seeing the need for self-esteem. But even self-esteem has become a euphemism for self-aggrandizement. And self aggrandizement has an ancient code word that we hate to hear…More

You need to fast as a follower of Jesus Christ. Not Seasonally, but rather more frequently than rarely. I got convicted last year to start fasting once a week, every week. This conviction came from a number of sources. The first conviction came from my friend, John Kigada. John shared with me how he fasts every Monday. He shared how…More

Is the death penalty moral? Hello Ernest! I trust you’re doing well. I had an intense argument with some acquaintances today concerning the capital punishment sentence for Ruth Kamande’s murder charge. All of them were in support of the sentence. It would be a major understatement to say that I was both rudely shocked and deeply pained. I really don’t…More

Having an affair You don’t need to live past a week in this world as a married man without being riddled with thoughts of illicit sex. It is in our movies, our newspapers, our grapevine, our offices, the Internet and in the lives of people we know. Husbands who fall into the trap of marital infidelity may have given in…More
