Here’s an account of what happens when we nonchalantly forge on in the wrong direction. Just who are we following? Are we sure we’re not lost?

I love you. But I judge you!

Love bears all things. Why do people judge the ones they love? How is it that love sometimes doesn’t withstand conflicts?

It will all be worth it

No matter how beautiful, creative, groundbreaking or useful; the fruits of our collective labor are bound to get spoiled. What hope is there for us?

Lethally Positive

Wouldn’t we want to wake up every morning, highly motivated and committed to accomplish great things? Isn’t pushing beyond the status quo and ‘changing the world’ such a worthy aspiration?

I’ll forgive. But Someone must pay!

You cannot embrace someone by pushing them away, and you cannot forgive someone by exacting reparation from them in the form of punishment

You (don’t) have to tell the Truth

Is it ok for me to lie sometimes? Do I have to tell the truth all times? Is this question even important? Let’s think this through…

Passionate, Eccentric, Foolish

Dietrich Bonhoeffer deeply mistrusted the charismatic and charming qualities of leaders and teachers because he wanted ‘words and logic of what he said to be the only things to which the others responded’

The responsible drunkard

It seems we cannot sober up even if we wanted to. That’s the truth

Quotes
The cross! The cross!

Dilemma wretched: how shall holiness Of brilliant life unshaded, tolerate Rebellion’s fetid slime, and not abate In its own glory, compromised at best?

Be different! Be yourself!

For those who do not accept them they are called intolerant for rejecting them for who they are—which is a kind of violation of basic human rights. Beside, as one of them asked, ‘who are you to impose your own morals to another human being?’

This is how Scripture constitutes the spectacles of faith: it provides the corrective lenses and the mediated light by which to read our world and interpret it rightly.

Do you want to change?

We need change in so many aspects of our lives (emotional, relational, moral, financial, physical, mental, career…). If all these aspects need fixing then perhaps I don't need a myriad of tweaks that do not go to the root of the issue, to the core of my being.

Don’t worry about these demons

I believe in the existence of angels and demons (or spirits, or what have you). Do you? This story talks both to the skeptical and the fanatic…

Are we being lied to?

It is said that we truly appreciate the value of something when it is taken away. Life is appreciated in the face of death. Light is appreciated in darkness. Truth is priceless when surrounded by lies.
