The "Enlightenment" ideas of "rights", "liberty" and "equality" itself needs to die: A call to the Church to rise up and return to Biblical, God-centred thinking

The modern Church in the west, that is, 21st century Christendom in the west, is extremely weak and useless to God. It is not that Christendom does not exist in the west, it does, but it is weak. The existence of some strong Christians in the west is exactly what Christendom in the west it. It exists but just not making the impact it should, by turning the world upside down as the early Church did as recorded in the book of Acts:


Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, 

Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ. And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. But the Jews which believed not, moved with e…

The Character of a Real Woman

The essence of a real woman is one who knows God's purpose for her life. She is one who is kind, wise and strong. Many in hyper-conservative Christian circles think that the ideal woman, or the real woman, who exemplifies the paragon of virtue is one who is supposedly 'truly liberated' from the feminist lifestyle of working and 'coming home to an empty house', by being domesticated, that is a woman who is married, has children, stays home and not university educated. But what they really mean is that the ideal woman is one who is weak, oppressed, and to be relegated to obscurity. 

To be clear, it is not wrong to be married, have children, stay home and not be university educated. Nor are these characteristics signs of oppression of women. What I am saying, however, is that that is the lifestyle that hyper-conservatives seek to impose on women for the purpose of making her weak, subtly oppressed by coercing her to marry as young as possible, and threatening to destro…

The Essence of a Real Woman

There is much talk about Biblical womanhood in the Church, which indeed an important topic. However, owing to the confusion about the subject by many people because of misinterpretation and misapplication of Scripture, this subject has become controversial and difficult to understand. 

Many attribute the controversial nature of the subject of Biblical womanhood in the eyes of today's Church to the influence of feminism in the Church. While it is true that much of the controversy is owing to many women being poisoned by feminism, there are also legitimate genuine concerns about certain purported teachings in the Church on Biblical womanhood. Such teachings that involve a perversion of Scripture that is being used to oppress women, which is a concern that warrants discussion. The use of Scripture of oppress people, not just women, is a very real concern. 

All discussion on Biblical womanhood must address the fundamental question: what is a real woman? A real woman is one who is worthy…

The Oppressed Daughter Syndrome and its Demonic Binding Powers

There is a phenomenon called the 'oppressed daughter syndrome'. It is a real syndrome and is not only that which has a spiritual dimension, but is demonic in nature. It is therefore an important issue to address from a Christian perspective, as is the case with all kinds of oppression.

The  'oppressed daughter syndrome' manifests in all kinds of symptoms, such as shyness, a lack of healthy self-respect, lack of confidence, forced career choices, rushed marriages, marital distress, especially loveless marriage, and hyper-conservativism and hyper-traditionalism, and lack of an ability to reach one's full God-given potential, and hence destiny in accordance to the Will of God, which is to know God and glory Him in all one does.

One salient characteristic of such a woman is that she is shy to the extreme. By shy, I am not saying quiet and gentle as a woman should be, but rather, severely lacking courage and confidence. Everything she does is marked by a lack of courage …

The Error of "Sola Scriptura": the Mother of All Heresies

When speaking of dangerous doctrines, the average Christian today will point to the obviously erroneous doctrines of cults, such as that Jesus was a spirit brother of satan, that there are two 'gods' in the Bible, a cruel God in the Old Testament, and a kind God in the New Testament, or that Jesus had only a divine, but no human nature, and therefore did not die for the sins of the world. 

However, little do these Christians think about why these heresies are able to arise in the first place. They simply dismiss them as the doctrines of crazy, psycho heretics - all without realising that they themselves are just as susceptible to heresy as those who are blatant heretics. One should never assume that because one attends a 'normal' church that one cannot fall into the trap of heresy. All most Christians to do is target such heretics for criticism, and lift no finger in helping them understanding why it is heresy, and why have they turned to such heresy as Jude 1:22-23 ins…

BEWARE of the Greedy Sin of USURY!!!

The Heresy of Faith as Mere Belief: True Faith is Obedience to God that manifest in Action, not Belief

The "protest"-ant reformation not only bought about many heresies, but legitimised heresy, because of the idea that every person has authority to interpret the Scripture as he sees fit, and not as inspired by the Holy Spirit. For anyone can say that his interpretation is inspired by the Spirit. Even cults say that they are inspired by the Spirit! 

While some heresies are more obvious, such as the doctrines that God is not Triune, that Jesus did not become man, Jesus is not God, or that the God of the Old and New Testament are two different Gods, other heresies are far more subtle. Some of these far more subtle heresies are so generally accepted and have infiltrated into much of the Church that hardly anyone thinks of them as heresy. 

One such heresy is that false doctrine that faith by which Salvation comes mean that one only needs to "just believe". All one needs to do is to believe in and affirm the doctrines of Salvation to be saved. A person need not take any per…
