Category is my name

We live in a world full of labels and categorization. This post actually has a label to sort things in order. It is for me (and you, the reader) to easily view all posts under the same label having related topics. Most of the time, as Christians, we view others with a label, and in this post we will see the dangers of categorizing people.

This is part of the "C" Series where I tackle some problems I observe with the church and individual Christians. This is NOT to discredit the Christian Faith, but to renew it. To learn from our mistakes and move forward.

God's will through desperate times

It is easy to say "It is God's will" or "It is God's plan" when we see the big picture. But when we are facing trials, struggles or in desperate times, it really is hard to say that "This is part of God's plan" until we see the result, or when we receive something better. When Joseph was sold by his brothers to the traders, it was only years later that we will realize that it was part of God's will, His plan to save a country and the brothers of Joseph.

A dangerous "light" | Christians as light or fire?

It is often quoted that "Christians are the light of the world." It is a challenge to Christians. But, the church and Christians are often seen as "enemies" by the secular and non-believers. Sometimes, Christians are really at fault on why we are seen that way. Are we a light, or a wildfire?

This is NOT to discredit the Christian Faith, but to renew it. To learn from our mistakes and move forward.

"Do you believe?" | Turning an empty belief to a genuine belief in the Gospel

"Do you believe?" - This is a phrase that most of us use when we explain our beliefs. In this case, I am talking about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. So, my question with how we use this "Do you believe?" phrase is this. What are the next words that comes after the phrase? Is it "Do you believe [me]?" or "Do you believe [in the Gospel of Jesus Christ]?"

Encourage One Another

It is not uncommon for teens, or young people, to look for enjoyment in the church. I, too, once looked for enjoyment on other churches when I can't find one on our church. As a church, we are one body who are there for each other. We are there to encourage one another.

Pursuit of happiness? | Finding Joy in Christ

Have you watched the movie Pursuit of Happyness? It is about this one guy, (will smith) who chases his dream job. He does everything he can, all sacrifices he can make in order to achieve his happiness. I haven't watched this movie though, but by looking at the reaction of my uncle after he watched it, I don't think it was a good movie. This is what he said, "That's it!? ugh!"
