Concerning Phaneroo (Part 4)

It is impossible for those who see themselves as gods and Christ not to have a human-centered view of life rather than a God-Centered one. For a man to see himself as a god, he must have such an inflated view of himself and a deflated view of God, a reversal of the reality of things, ‘for there is none like the God of Jeshurun.’ This man-centered view of reality is humanism; it is what is called anthropocentrism.

Concerning Phaneroo (Part 2)

The death of Christ for the redemption of humanity is the gospel that rejoices the hearts of the redeemed. This redemption is Trinitarian. The Father decrees before the foundation of the world to redeem a people for Himself through His Son, not based on any merit of their own, but purely on the substance of Christ His Son, who would die to effect the ransom for their redemption (Eph 1:3-14). This work is produced in the believer’s heart by the Spirit of God, through regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

Why Cults Thrive in Uganda

In 2013, Conrad Mbewe of Kabwata Baptist Church in Zambia preached a Sermon titled ‘Are we Preachers or Witch-doctors?’ at the Strange Fire Conference, an annual Conference organized by Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California. In his presentation, later published in a blog that can be found here, Mbewe makes an excellent diagnosis of the evangelical movement in Africa, most especially the popular charismatic churches.

When the Godly Grow Weary

Brother Habakkuk is a tired man. He ministers during the ‘death throes’ of the nation of Judah that has repeatedly refused to repent. He has lived righteously and sought to engage his generation with God’s message but seems to see no fruit. He is weary, frustrated, and discouraged. So Habakkuk decides to ask God questions, in chapter 1, many questions which really are one: why is God silent when the wicked devour the righteous? (1:2,13). Why?

The Uniqueness of Jesus Christ (Part 2)

In my previous article about the Uniqueness of Jesus Christ, I intended to respond to a brother from Tanzania who wrote to me asking about the character and work of Christ that sets Him apart, and why we ought to follow Him. In response I delighted in  writing a series of articles addressing this question that may prove helpful for many. These articles will not be exhaustive, but I hope they will stir up serious thought, that culminates in a personal relationship with Christ as Lord and Savior.
