Was Jesus a blonde haired blue-eyed white guy with long flowing hair like a shampoo model, or was he most likely a rugged black man with tightly wound hair like lamb's wool and skin like bronze? Did he look like the Caucasian Jews that we see today or did he look more like the Ancient Egyptians he was around during the first year(s) of his life when He and his parents fled to Egypt? To all of these questions, I give a resounding no. The simple fact of the matter is that the Bible does…Read more

“… contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.” Jude 1:3,4
In light of Black History Month I want to touch on a popular yet troubling topic that intersects both black history in America and the Christian faith. Over the past few weeks or so, I have noticed…
Happy New Year!!
As with every New Year, I'm sure most of us are fueled with passion and vision to accomplish our resolutions and goals. However, let's make sure that this year, we are moving with purpose and a clear direction. This clear direction is God’s will. More often than not, our New Year goals are centered on self-improvement - how we can lose a few pounds, how we can gain more things, or how we can hustle harder and become better versions of ourselves. But are we aware that our good-intentioned…
Because of our habit of sinning (most of the time in the same areas), does God ever get frustrated with us? Does God ever find Himself at His wits end dealing with us sinful humans?
Before, I answer the question, let me first explain what I mean by the question. When I ask “Is God tired of us”, I do not mean it in the sense that God actually tires physically or emotionally. I am asking from the viewpoint of the Old Testament where God destroys a city because the people would not repent…
God has put enough into the world to make faith in Him a most reasonable thing. But He has left enough out to make it impossible to live by sheer reason or observation alone.
- Ravi Zacharias
As believers in Christ, it is important that you know what you believe and why you believe it (1 peter 3:15). We must be able to give…Read more
You’ve Just Got Saved…So, What’s Next??
Congratulations!! You have made one of the best decisions of your life! We are so grateful to God for you and would love to get you started in the right direction. We introduce the next steps in a “three-leeged stool” approach. They are: “Time in God’s Word, Time in Prayer, and Time with Christian Friends”.

When my daughter was born, my wife and I bought one of those heavy duty high tech baby monitors that had both video and sound. It even had night vision for when she slept and the lights were off. As such, we made it a point that she learned to be okay sleeping in her crib alone. We did not want to be one of those parents with their child sleeping in the room. That way, we would get more sleep! However, this proved kind of difficult for than we had thought. Even though it was natural for…Read more

The other day, I was watching some YouTube videos sponsored by the Bible Project that give an animated visual overview of the each book of the Bible. If you haven't seen them, I would strongly advise you to check them out. In any case, as I was watching them, first starting with Genesis and going forward, I noticed a heart-wrenching theme. As Gods creation, we are desperately inclined to turn away from Him. From Adam to the children of Israel, to you today, we all like sheep go astray and…
In order to discover what God's will for our lives are, God has given us ordinary means by which we can be "equipped for EVERY good work". One of these ordinary means is the Bible. When we take it upon ourselves to read, hear, and attend upon God's word, we are able to accurately test and approve what Gods will is. As I have stated in previous blogs, one way to get yourself into trouble is to ignore the bible and make life decisions based on feelings apart from a careful examining of…Read more

When you hear the term "the will of God", what does it mean to you? In my experiences, most people take it to mean one of two things. Either, God's will is this hidden destination and the way you get to it is through a series of breadcrumbs “leading" you this way or that way followed by inner peace...or, the will of God is a highly spiritual pursuit that only the super Christians among us have achieved because they have somehow found a way to "tap into" what God was trying to do and they…
