How We Treat Fellow Christians Who Believe Differently

As a growing Christian I held on to certain beliefs because that is what I was taught. I had no reasons to doubt. I trusted my teachers and pastors. Besides the Bible, I took their recommendations of books and resources without question. As I grew, in age and matured in the faith, whatever that means, […]

Genghis Khan And The Mongol’s Theology; A Big God

I tried to read as widely as I can. I’m generally fascinated by biographies. Biographies of people who made a notable impact, waves, disruptions of sort. One of history’s figures I’ve had interest in was Genghis Khan. He shaped the history and direction of a people and continent. After conquering a city, he inquired about […]

Calling and Conviction; Reflecting On Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Let me start by thanks Eric Metaxas for doing a great job of Bonhoeffer’s biography. Through his work we have a good picture of Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s life. Eric’s work is a good example of what a biography should be. Without it I wouldn’t have been challenged the way I was. Let me not get ahead […]

Review: Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy

I can’t remember the last time I shed tears while going through a biography, because I did this time. Everything about Eric Metaxas’ work is beautiful. Excellent. I was not only impressed but so moved that I feel the words I just used are an injustice to his great work. It is obvious by now […]

My Assignments In Light Of Others [Podcast #01]

In the first I Am Jonah podcast I explore dealing with ‘my assignments‘ in light of others. The truth is, every now and then, we will take note of others’ work. Being involved with the sacred mission doesn’t cure us (or at least me) from having to deal with my humanity. Looking at how others […]

God’s Work Among People

It is no doubt that God works in the lives of people. Myself included, I’ve seen his transformative power in the lives of countless people. He works supernaturally. Some people confuse supernatural for spectacular. The supernatural is not always spectacular. ‘God’s work’ in people’s lives may not always be spectacular but it doesn’t mean it […]

The Christian Leader And Politcal Opinions And Affiliations

Christians must be involved in politics. They cannot afford stand on the sidelines and have no say in governance and morality of society. How can they be guardians of justice if they’re stand on the sidelines? I’m convinced that Christians can’t afford to be spectators as others of diverse convictions and beliefs create laws and […]
