The biggest enemy parents have in raising kids in a screen-saturated world is the same enemy who continues to seek to destroy the work of God in your and your children’s lives. Don’t focus so much on fighting technology. Rather, fight against the ways Satan sneaks in to deceive and destroy.

Comicbook Review: “Perpetua” (Art Ayris and Jeff Slemons)

Summary: Perpetua is a story of one of the earliest Christian women recorded outside of Scriptures that suffered persecution because of her faith. Little was known of her but here death under the hand of Rome is an incredible story.

Cover Art: Similar to cover the of Martyrs comicbook but Slemons gives a sweeping cinematic look that you’ll always want to stare at. While that comic is minimalist cover, this one is masterpiece in itself. If this comic is on the shelf with other comics, surely this is an eye grabbing cover and you’ll be picking it up and read it on the spot. Slemon rendered his art on the cover (and interior) that can only be called epic.

8 Favorite Quotes From The Book “Cultural Contextualization of Apologetics” (Matt W. Lee)

Have a blessed day to all!

Here’s s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, Cultural Contextualization of Apologetics by Matt W. Lee published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. You can get your copy, both physical and digital by following this link.

The first way Paul forges the cultural connection is by the use of cultural point of contact and culturally contextualized communication that includes the use of specific language and forms that generate greater cultural receptivity from the audience. The second way Paul forms the cultural connection is by building up cultural solidarity with the hearers, which gains him admission into the hearers’ culture, allowing him to speak as a cultural insider.

Demystifying the Bible

For me, as a former fundamental Baptist or Bible Baptist (as they are called here in the Philippines), if we want to talk about what Bible version to read, obviously the KJV or KJB (King James Bible) is our go to Bible. With it’s great reputation as the best selling and most loved version, we can trust this version. However, the truth is that the KJV is difficult to read and to absorbed. but since it’s “THE only Bible we should read and all other Bible version are corrupt” we stick to it. Ironically (hypocritically), preachers in this group uses a diglot Bible which includes a Tagalog translation which is not KJV to make sense of the KJV English.

8 Favorite Quotes From The Book “How The Church Fathers Read the Bible” (Gerald Bray)

It’s been a while since I posted some quotes from the book I recently finished. The reasons are I’m busy and the book is long or technical too read. But anyways, here’s s some great quotes I got from a book I recently finished, How The Church Fathers Read the Bible by Gerald Bray published by Lexham Press. You can get your copy, both physical and digital by following this link.

“The fathers of the church could not know that we would still be reading their works today, nor could they have had any idea of how the gospel would spread across the world and take root in places of which they had never heard. Their faith has been vindicated in ways that they could not have known or suspected. We are called to learn from their example and to take heart in the fact that God has not changed, that his promises remain fi rm, and that in his good time he will reveal the fruits of our faith in the life of his people.”

Comicbook Review: “The Reign of God” (Issey Fujishima)

Summary: Set in the fall of Jerusalem 70 AD the story picks up Josephus Flavius, the Jewish historian as he pleads for the Romans to spare the temple. He then meet Shimon, who tells the story of John the Baptist.

Cover Artwork: The cover art is not that appealing to me. At first look it feels it’s not something about the gospel or any Bible story. It’s just the name “Fujishima” will catch your attention and think it’s a manga. Well I think it is and it’s a worthy read.

National Baptist Day: Milestone or Millstone?

Recently, Senate Bill No. 2252 passed third and final reading which ensure the National Baptist Day to be celebrated annually every January 16. It is sponsored and co-authored by Sen Win Gatchalian. This is considered a milestone for the Baptists here in the Philippines as the government considers our group as partners to nation building. You can read the about it here and on congressman Benny Abante’s FB post.

I have no problem with folks celebrating an event nor I’m not proud of being a Baptist. I’m 100% proud of being a Baptist and we should observe this annual event in our church. However, when these kind of religious activities are mixed with some sort of politics, then there is a need of discernment.
