Back to the Basics: The Unfathomable Love of God

Back to the Basics: The Unfathomable Love of God

Basic Truth #1: God is Love. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. 1 John 4:8 When I think of basic tenets of the Adventist faith, several things come to mind. The Investigative Judgment. The mark of the beast. The state of the dead. The Sabbath. Creationism and the age of […]

in love.

in love.

On her second day of work, she had a minor accident and was ten minutes late getting to the office.  But as she took her seat and rebooted her desktop, she  filled me in on that morning’s events.  She didn’t complain, rather she started to pour out how grateful she was for this and that, […]

Lesson 6: The Fruit of the Spirit is Kindness

Lesson 6: The Fruit of the Spirit is Kindness

One of the most fascinating and wonderful attribute of Jesus Christ was the way, he drew attention from huge groups of people. Every small village and big city he visited, he always had a huge crowd behind him. There were so many reasons as to why people followed Him. But from reading the Bible and […]

Lesson 3: Worship & Dedication

As Christians, our sole role & responsibility is to worship the one & only Almighty Lord and Savior Jesus Christ by dedicating our lives for His glory and honor.

Lesson 12: John’s Letter to the Chosen Lady

Assume it’s possible to know truth and not love […]

Faith in seat 14F

It’s another business trip. Or vacation. Or trip to go see family. I’m in terminal D, or E, or F and I’m trying to bend time in order to get to gate 27 in a polar opposite terminal. This particular leg finds me deposited in the cavernous, air conditioned hallways of DFW, LAX, BWI, IAH, […]

Adventists + Dating // OVERRATED

Adventists + Dating // OVERRATED

Overrated. That’s the word I use to describe this whole discussion. OVERRATED. Seriously, the social club that is the SDA church has become like the English nobility of old when it comes to the topic of marriage. We’re inbred. We all go to Andrews, Oakwood, Loma Linda, Southern, Babcock, Valley View and then marry each […]

Adventists + Dating // An Open Letter

Adventists + Dating // An Open Letter

Dear Brother Who is Eyeing the SDA Girl*, I know it’s taken a lot of nerve and will-power to get to this point – the point at which you feel you can finally, after weeks of shy smiles, admiring glances, and small talk revolving around similar tastes in films and music, get up the nerve […]

Adventists + Dating // A few resources…

Every human being has been created by God in a unique way.  Each person walks down an individualized path that no other person can experience.  Despite these differences, there are similar circumstances all will encounter.  For this reason, humans inherently share information with each other so they can learn to avoid mistakes.  Society is slowly […]
