    I wish to give a praise report and give thanksgiving to my God for His Divine Providence! Several weeks ago, I was on my way to a youth prayer meeting for my church’s upcoming conference – Time of Harvest. While I was on my way, I noticed one of my friends driving up behind me. […]

  • 9/11: A Day to Remember

    9-11 cross

    I sat in my seat puzzled. What am I going to write about, I wondered, amidst the din of noise in my English Composition class. The teacher required us to write a research paper about a topic. After some mulling and thinking, I finally decided upon a topic: 9/11. Many of us in the guild […]

    My wife has a soft heart when it comes to persecution.  A day has not gone by in the last few weeks that I haven’t heard about what ISIS is doing to people, particularly Christians, in Iraq.  The other day she lay on me and cried, wondering why all this was happening.  Why were people […]

As I sat, waiting for my oncologist to make his appearance, I was reading Dr. H. A. Ironside’s commentary of Revelation.  In particular, Revelation chapters 2 and 3, and the letters to the churches of Asia. There are 3 main types of eschatology (study of end times) in Christianity.  ”Post-Millennials” believe that we are already […]

  One day, as I was getting ready to settle down and play one of my video games, Mom came to me and informed me that our neighbor’s sister was suddenly rendered homeless and had no place else to go. She wondered if, perhaps, we could go and pick her up. I got up from […]

Solo Christo Tie him down and beat him well, Make his eyes to close and swell. Rip his flesh and punch his face, Make him wallow in disgrace!   This Jewish “king” deserves no peace, Let the pain continue, do not cease! Laugh and rip his beard away, He won’t need it any way!   […]

They’re called Multiplayer Online Battle Arenas, or MOBA for short. While DOTA 2 dominates North America, League of Legends (LoL) dominates the […]

The prayers of a mother are very powerful and are not to be underestimated. Here is one example: Hannah (Samuel’s mother). Hannah, as we all know, was one of the wives of Elkanah who could not bear any children. She was constantly ridiculed by her husband’s other wife for this. As a result, Hannah went […]

Many of us feel at times that we are worthless and as such are not fit for service for the Lord. However, worthlessness is not an excuse because it is not true! Here’s how. We’ve probably heard it said that God can replace us. If so, this says we’re replaceable. Does it go farther and […]

New Year’s Eve, 2013. My mom, dad, and I went to Saulsbury, MD, to attend the New Year’s Eve party that was taking place in the city’s square. We traveled in our car and saw various shops and stores, a number of which a Christian should not even think of going into. We parked our car and traveled […]

My first attempt at an MMO was Runescape. I only lasted a day and a half. I loved gaming, but I found out then and there that MMOs were not for me. Or so I thought. A year went by before a friend finally got me to try Lord of the Rings Online with her. […]

Star Citizen is perhaps one of the greatest crowd-funded successes since the inception of crowd-funding.

Now, […]

So, I’m not much of a cook. I can cook, I just hate it, to the extent that I don’t even have a cook on LotRo, which is saying a lot. Somehow, maybe the great pictures or just the ingredients, but somehow I got pulled into making this dip on Monday. It was so good! […]

“Why Do You Do What You Do?” It’s an interesting question. Do you talk a certain way because your siblings talk that way? Do you walk a certain way because your parents walk that way? Do you believe something because your friends believe it? What you believe is very important. Why? Because it is the foundation […]

Gambling has a bad name, with good reason. You have the obvious ones, gambling on the races, at the casino, but you also have ones people would disagree on. Bungee jumping? Skydiving? According to some it’s a rush, but others disagree. Then you have the last type, the one that’s not as easy to see. […]

You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you. – Isaiah 26:3 Circumstances do not create anxiety, but merely activate it. Worry pre-exists in the mind, and is unearthed when our state of affairs takes a turn for the worse. That’s why we must search inside our […]

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Galatians 5:22-23 This frequently quoted verse is a beautiful picture of the life that we as Christians are called to live. In contrast to the “works of the flesh” listed in verses 19-21, […]

Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.   – Psalm 37:4 When you chase a dream wholeheartedly, you can’t be surprised when you’re misunderstood.

You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! – John 5:39 God is not a theology book to be read, but an experience to be had. When we hoist dogmas so highly that when we think of God, we think solely of a Book, we’re […]

According to Wikipedia, compromise is when you give up a demand in order to make a deal. The Bible does not really indicate whether compromise is good or bad, but warns us of the consequence of compromising the wrong things.   “So Saul died for his transgression which he committed against the Lord, even against […]

Long ago there lived a monk named Telemachus. He dwelt in a desert to devote his life to fasting and prayer. He wished, above all else, to have fellowship with the Almighty. One day it occurred to him that his love for God was not self-less but selfish. How could he practice the Christian life […]

Isaiah 51:4-16 There are only 2 things in the Bible that God commands us to fear, Fear Not and Fear God. Christians all over America are losing battles because of fear.
