LETTER TO A DEAR BROTHER WHO WAS BEING TORMENTED AND HARASSED BY FEARS OF HIS WITCHCRAFT PRACTICING NEIGHBOURS

Thank you once again for writing my dear Brother and sharing your fears and concerns regarding your neighbours who practice witchcraft. I want to start this letter by sharing something my wife and I were discussing a couple of weeks ago. We were watching the personal testimony of a hardcore Satanist who had now come to Christ and was gloriously saved. And he was sharing his experiences as a practicing Satanist as to how he would cast spells and curses on people and afflict them with all sorts of sicknesses and sometimes even had them killed by demons etc. (we must understand that devil does have a lot of power amongst his own for they are his slaves caught in his snare taken captive by him at his will [2Tim 2:26]

When-Push-Comes-to-Shove

The informal meaning of “When Push Comes to Shove” is when one must commit oneself to an action or decision. “Sink or Swim” also comes to mind. I’m sure there are others.

Every once in a while I receive a question about Christianity from someone who has stumbled upon my blog. If it is a sincere question, an honest inquiry, I try to answer it. Sometimes the question only serves as a lead-in so that the person who submitted the question can then demonstrate their superior knowledge and intellect and ridicule my faith and beliefs. It’s not difficult to determine what kind of inquiry I have before me. Their response to my initial response to their question usually illustrates the motive behind the question. And in the big scheme of things, that’s all fine. I get it that some people enjoy demeaning others. I try my best not to…

Reasoned Cases for Christ

jesus-messiah

For one who has already made up his or her mind that Jesus is not the Messiah, no amount of evidence will be convincing. But for those who are honest in asking, the evidence speaks for itself.

The idea of a Messiah comes from the Hebrew Bible.

Imagine looking up a friend by first locating his country. That would not be enough information, so you would need to ascertain his city, street, and specific street number. It would also help if you had a phone number and when he would be home.

Similarly, the Bible tells us the “ID” of the Messiah. His ethnic background, place of birth, the timeframe of his arrival and other identifying characteristics are given. These “credentials” enable us to identify the Messiah and to recognize imposters.

What are some of the credentials of the Messiah?

Only a few can be listed below; there are many…

I recently discovered a series of posts authored by Robert M. Bowman Jr, who was a good friend of Nabeel Qureshi.

Robert Bowman received his M.A. in Biblical Studies and Theology from Fuller Theological Seminary in 1981, did doctoral studies in Christian Apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary, and earned his Ph.D in Biblical Studies at the South African Theological Seminary. From 2006 to 2008 he was the manager of Apologetics and Interfaith Evangelism for the North American Mission Board (based in Alpharetta, Georgia), an agency of the Southern Baptist Convention. Since 2008 he has been the executive director of the Institute for Religious Research, an independent, evangelical nonprofit organization (formerly located in Grand Rapids, now based in Cedar Springs, Michigan)

The series has to do with Rob’s interaction with Nabeel during Nabeel’s illness and Rob’s scholarly reasoning why God usually doesn’t provide miraculous healing for the sick, even godly individuals such as Nabeel.

For a couple of days, George had been feeling a mild pain along the region of his chest cavity. He however didn’t pay much attention to it because he was sure perfect healing was his. You see, George is a young blooming web developer who is never slothful in business but fervent in spirit and serving the Lord.

As the days went by, so did the intensity of the pain grow. Even though his elder brother was a medical doctor, he wouldn’t discuss the matter with him – “I’m free from sicknesses and diseases”, he kept confessing. Truth is he had been on a three-month-long fasting and prayer at the time as he needed to nourish his spirit-man the more. In fact, the plan was to lengthen it by a month – no time for spiritual slackness. Things however got out of hand on a Sunday evening, on his way…

Here’s a compilation of thirty one of our blog’s quick devotional with each post on a verse from Paul’s epistles in the Bible.  I think they are ideal for daily reading as a project for a month.

I want each to interpret the verse well but also to apply it practically well too.

Here’s the listing:
