The folly of supremacy!

Image
Last week, i heard that China is building a transcontinental railway line through eastern Europe and apparently one of the workers on the railway allegedly said that those opposed to the railway should be crushed under the heel of China. China has also apparently been behaving very aggressively with her neighbours in the east. I have also read a speech recently where President Trump is allegedly saying that black people are inferior intellectually to white people. I am not sure if he actually said those words, but i know there are people out there who think and feel that way. They are completely wrong and  i pity them.

If you cannot appreciate the differences that exist between people and instead prefer to spread hatred just because people aren't the same as you, then i think its sad! It makes you a very sad human being indeed! We are all human beings and we all deserve to be treated with the dignity and respect worthy of our race! No one has the right to dominate others and subdu…

Christians as the new Essau

Image
We have all read the story about Jacob and Essau in the bible. Many of us anyway, depending on whether or not you are a christian. Anyway, long story short, Essau trades his birth right as the elder son to Jacob for a meal! Hmmmm.....his hunger at the time clouded his judgement. I think we can all relate to how our feelings and desires sometimes stop us from thinking clearly.


That being said, he shouldnt have let them go so lightly. Jacob was cunning and shrewd and ended up taking all the blessings from his father. How does this relate to christians today? In the Gospel reading yesterday, Jesus is asked by the jews to perform a sign so that they can believe that he is the Messiah. He told them, no sign will be given to you except the sign of Jonah. He also told them that their generation would be judged by the ninevites, for they had believed jonah and yet God's own son was speaking to them and they hardened their hearts.

Our generation today is being judged by other faiths like t…

The Life of an Apostle!

Image
The below quote is from first corinthians about what it means to live as an apostle and gives food for thought especially for christians today.

1 Corinthians 4:9-13 I think, God has exhibited us apostles last of all, as men condemned to death; because we have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but you are prudent in Christ; we are weak, but you are strong; you are distinguished, but we are without honor. 11 To this present hour we are both hungry and thirsty, and are poorly clothed, and are roughly treated, and are homeless; 12 and we toil, working with our own hands; when we are reviled, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure; 13 when we are slandered, we try to conciliate; we have become as the scum of the world, the dregs of all things, even until now.
Today the world is filled with so many preachers and churches / christian denominations focused on the so called "prosperity Gospel". They seem to be too cen…

Shades of gray!

Image
When i was a child, things were much easier! I viewed things with that beautiful innocence that only children posess! People were either good or bad and their actions were other benevolent or malicious. Oh, how i long for those days of past innocence but alas, they are long gone! There is a reason human beings make flawed judgements, its because they are not able to see all the angles! That is why judgement is best reserved for God alone!


Life is in varying shades of gray, not black and white. I still find it difficult sometimes to accept people's actions. Honestly when i think about the people who murder in cold blood, i just cannot understand that! I recall the killing of innocent children in a kindergarten in the united states and i am at a loss for words! How can someone possibly justify that? What was going through their minds? Do they feel like you and me?


A million questions left unanswered! The truth is, we cannot understand all the actions other people do. We cannot know …
