“Was Easter Borrowed from a Pagan Holiday?”

Transformed by Incomprehensible Love (Repost)

A husband promises to love and to cherish his wife, but would he keep this promise if his wife was unfaithful? Not so with Christ, who, like Hosea, kept his promise, even to an adulterous Bride: he "loved the church and gave himself up for her."

Roman Catholic (Mega)Church?

A friend, pastor of an evangelical church in Baclaran, Parañaque, Metro Manila, received a comment on his blog from a devotee of the Redemptorist Church in Baclaran. The comment has echoes of the evangelical mindset of big numbers and budgets as indicators of success and God's blessing.

A Psalm of Lament for Christmas

This is why we celebrate Christmas. This is why we have joy at Christmas. This is why we could say with David, “My heart shall rejoice in your salvation!” This is why the angels in heaven rejoiced at the birth of Christ, because his birth was “good news of great joy that will be for all the people.”

September 29, 2009

Tens of thousands of people in the Metro Manila area and several provinces suffered in the onslaught of record rainfall from Storm Ketsana. God has encouraging words for them as well as those of us who were not affected much by the storm. Psalm 46 is one chapter that assures and quiets our souls, especially in times of great distress such as this.

“The Gospel according to me”

"Jesus in MY heart, MY being born again, MY moral transformation, what happens inside of ME, MY sanctification, MY experience." This "gospel" is that of the medieval Roman church.

God’s People Grumble

June 30, 2009

Numbers 11 and John 6 show us that Jesus as our Mediator is better than Moses the mediator between God and Israel. Unlike Moses, even in his darkest hour, Christ did not grumble against God about the rebellious people he was saving. Instead, he prayed for their salvation and for God to be with them.

Starting and Ending Our Pilgrimage with God

June 26, 2009

When we are fully obedient to God’s word in our pilgrimage, and when we invite others to join us, God promised to bring us together to our Promised Land, a place that will be for us a "resting place" (Numbers 10:11-36).
