Vanity of Vanities

“Ever more people today have the means to live, but no meaning to live for.” Viktor E. Frankl, Austrian Neurologist, Survivor of the Holocaust & Author of Man’s Search for Meaning. After years of much learning through observation, research and experimentation, the wisest king who ever lived made a simple yet troubling conclusion on life: […]

The Predestination of the Believer

I find it difficult to accept some (or is it most?) of the things taught among believers today. We discuss issues of predestination only to satisfy our intellectual curiosity, you know, to search out, as it were, the secret things of the LORD which has not been revealed (Deuteronomy 29:29). And a lot of these […]

Union with Christ

​Ephesians 2:1  “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;” KJV “In the past you were spiritually dead because of your sins and the things you did against God.” New Century Version “AND YOU [He made alive], when you were dead (slain) by [your] trespasses and sins” AMPC There is no life […]

Church in the wilderness

​David was concerned for the LORD. He wanted God to dwell in a proper house instead of the tents. God dwelt in tents/tabernacles in those days because His people were still moving from place to place. They had not yet been settled and He could not yet dwell in a permanent place. Now, that God […]

Why don’t you want to suffer?

Life is after all a school. …an institute may be. There are classes and tutors; Class mates & seniors. That explains why you can’t run your show by the rules of a class different from yours! All the rules, guidelines and entire curriculum are determined by the learning objectives of each class. But regardless of […]

Be still…

The rate at which the world is spinning these days is no longer jet-like…we don’t really have an accurate expression to describe our “predicaments” anymore. Is it information overload? Or repetitive cycle of night and day? Or how we have lost the sensible space between breakfast, lunch and dinner? They all happen so fast and […]

Mystery & Reason

“Mysticism keeps men sane. As long as you have mystery you have health; when you destroy mystery you create morbidity.” “The madman is not the man who has lost his reason. The madman is the man who has lost everything except his reason.” “The one created thing which we cannot look at is the one […]

Religious

Another ‘opposites’ that comes to my mind is the fact that we can evenly distribute every single person alive into two groups: religious and irreligious. Just saying generally… Yet, I am currently perturbed by an idea in my mind. Do you know that more than two-third of the controlling ideas on earth today are either […]

The Law of Opposites (1)

Everything in life is in twos. We have days and nights, light and darkness, hot and cold, right and left, early and late, literate and illiterate, prosperity and adversity etcetera. A life full of one without the other is not only Utopian but unfair. The first man Adam ate from the tree of knowledge of good and […]

Desire

Whether you are born rich or poor, we are all born to become ‘pursuant’ to certain life ideals…. It is a certain ‘something’ within us to have a pursuit; for the very life itself cannot be endured let alone enjoyed in the absence of pursuits. This presupposes that the very reality of life is a […]
