• The Holy Communion

    The Holy Communion is an act of worship and thanksgiving that should be participated in and done by churches, gatherings and families in accordance to Christ's word (Luke 22:19) "To do this (the Holy Communion) in remembrance of Him" in order to thank God for sending His Son, thank Jesus for giving His life and to show our unity (oneness) with God... but why?

  • Is listening to secular music bad?

    - Is all secular music bad?
    - Am I saying that secular musicians are not talented?
    - What about secular musicians that are believers?
    - But secular music is better than Christian music
    - Why music... why not tv, games, etc?
    The Bible says to not be equally yoked with unbelievers (2 Corinthians 6:14)... and listening to secular music makes you...

  • Why didn't you tell them about Jesus?

    Hell is real. It is your responsibility (as well as mine) to tell those who do not know about where people without Christ are headed. We will be held responsible for not sharing our faith... for being disobedient. Your salvation is not meant to be mysterious; Everyone should know. Not fulfilling the Great Commission is disobedience to...

    Worshiping God, being in the Spirit, feeling God's presence is much much more than lifting your hands up. Some do so because they think it is the right thing to do in God's Presence, others because they see people doing so, and others, for many more wrong reasons: Pride, hypocrisy, etc, or the right ones: adoration, joy, etc. When should you lift your hands up though?

  • Do not take God's glory

    Don't take God's glory. Never do. God gives you gifts, skills and talents, so the world can see, be amazed and through your giving Him glory, lead people back to Him. This is a reminder, one that I've needed to remind myself over and over again... Do not take God's glory or He will take it back...

Maybe you should say no... out loud

Just say no? Out loud? 
Guess you're thinking "What's this guy talking about this time?". Well, I'm talking about temptation.
I'm sure everyone of you has been tempted to do something you don't like doing... or are trying to stop doing?
Usually, the temptations that come your way are easy for you to defeat. "WHAT?? Even when I was tempted to... I could have defeated the temptation??"  YES. It's the truth, it's in the Bible...

No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it
(1 Corinthians 10:13)
So the Bible has said so, how do we enforce the rule.... the fact in the scripture that can never be disproved?
It's quite simple. 

Submit (humble)yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee(run away) from you.
(James 4:7)

Do I mean shouting at the devil at the top of voice? Yes. If you have to do so to remain clean, do so.

But... what I do is this...
I say a firm "NO" to the devil or his demons, I say No, and I mean no, and get my self(my eyes, mouth, body, computer) out of that tempting environment. 
You can't say "NO" to lust.... and keep on staring at some lady inappropriately, you can't say "NO" to cursing and hang around guys that love to cuse... and so on.

So, when next you're tempted, just say "No". Saying "No" is a form of resisting the devil... and if you mean it and cultivate the habit of rebuking him, just like the pathetic, little, ugly wimp he is, he'll run away. The more you win the battle of temptations, the better and stronger your faith will be.

Have a great day.
