A Love Letter To Christian Parents

Dear Christian parent at Marg Wanowrie church,

You might have just heated up an early dinner for your child.
Let’s say that was the plan!

As a responsible parent, you want to give your best to your child. You have read really good authors on parenting. Heard powerful sermons on Godly parenting by the best preachers in Christendom. You hope that your child will soon exhibit the results of your renewed efforts. But you cringe at those times when your child disobeys you, launches a ball and breaks a china plate at someone else’s house. You dread your church members shaking their heads in disapproval at your child’s behaviour. Continue reading “A Love Letter To Christian Parents”

To Escape Or To Fight, That Is The Question

temptation, fight, flee, Jesus, Devil, I am weak, Jesus is strong, missions or purity, Christians debate

Over the years, I have noticed two types of fellow Christians with opposing approaches on dealing with temptation. Both could be part of the same fellowship, in the same local church or missionary organisation. But why can’t they agree?
Let me briefly explain their stands below-

Side A. “God says Flee”
These Christians point out that temptation is not something to trifle or play around with. They rightly say that the Lord Jesus died for these very things that caused them to sin, and rather than facing the choice to sin, they choose to escape the object or situation of temptation, sometimes in “radical fashion.

Favorite verses : 1 Cor 10:12-13, Matt 5:29-30 , Eph 5:3 , Gen 39:2-12, 1 Cor 6:8, 2 Tim 2:22

Life-theme: Joseph running and escaping Pharoah’s wife’s wrong advances. (Gen 39:1-20)

Pet peeve against Side B: “Pride goes before a fall, have you not heard?”

Side B. “Stand and fight”
These Christians think that temptation is really unavoidable in our daily lives. While they too hate sin and try to avoid temptation, they don’t really understand “Side A”. Continue reading “To Escape Or To Fight, That Is The Question”
