8 Favorite Quotes from the Book “Can I Know God’s Will?”(R. C. Sproul)

Here are my favorite quotes from the book, Can I Know God’s Will? by R. C. Sproul published by Reformation Trust Publishing . If you want to support the author, you can buy the physical book or download it on Kindle for free by following this link.

“…there is a God who is sovereign, whose will is greater than ours. His will restricts my will. My will cannot restrict His will. When He decrees something sovereignly, it will come to pass—whether I like it or not, whether I choose it or not. He is sovereign. I am subordinate.”

Redeeming “Iglesya”

In our translation team, someone raised a question on what word that we should use for “church” in Tagalog. Is it “iglesya”, “simbahan” or something else? This is an interesting question considering that it does bring confusion not just Christians but to unbelievers we are reaching out.

I already pointed this in an article that iglesya is one of the misunderstood theological term here in the Philippines. I think it’s worth exploring it again here because I think it’s more than a question if such word should be used. The issue can be more deep than that. I think as we Christian who doesn’t want to misrepresent the gospel, so it should be our motive also to rightfully show what a church really is according to the Scriptures.

Book Review: “Charitable Writing”(Richard Hughes Gibson and James E. Beitler III)

Finally, I have finished this great book on writing and now I want to share not just quotes from it but my impression of this volume. It’s took me a few months before I finish this due to the fact that I have to give way to other books that is short so I can have something to put on my blog. But as I lay aside this book and the parts I already read, the content still is stuck in my mind all throughout those time that’s why I was so eager to pick it up and finish it.

The introduction to Charitable Writing is of course essential but its a bit long. However, once you get out of the woods and it will be a smooth and enjoyable ride. Its a long read so expect it to be grueling but interesting journey.
