Labelled for life. What now?

  There was a city with very strict laws. When anyone committed a crime they would receive the normal punishment, but in addition a mark would be placed on their foreheads so that everyone would know the kind of crime that person had committed. Two brothers were arrested for murder and gang-related activities, and had […]


If men and women understand this, they’ll never treat each other the same way again

  If something made you cry when you were a child, your experience was probably a little something like this: If you were a boy: you would cry, then go to your mom or dad for some comfort, and would hear something along the lines of: “Stop crying! You’re a man! Men don’t cry. Stop […]


Sign up for this blog in 30 seconds

  Why do I write this blog? First of all, because it helps me think. From the moment I found out that before everything came to exist – the human being, Earth, the Universe, everything – the Word already existed, the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself (John 1:1), I have […]


Do you know the difference between judging and judging?

  One of the mantras of people who feel attacked is: “Who are you to judge me?” They love using this wildcard to defend themselves, a convenient way of getting the focus off themselves and onto someone else. And they even quote Jesus’ words to justify themselves, saying, “Judge not, and you shall not be […]


The Doctrines of Fifty Shades of Grey

  Cristiane and I have been alerting people regarding the need to bulletproof our love life against the rubbish of this world. During this endeavor, we feel it’s our duty to caution our friends and readers about the next attack of evil against marriage: the movie “50 Shades of Grey”. Now, I would also like you to […]


The world’s most underused energy

One of the ways to measure the progress of mankind through the ages is to observe how it progressively discovered and learned to make use of the various forms of energy available. Starting with its muscle strength and animals, then fire, wind, coal, gas, oil, electricity, then nuclear… and many others. Mankind’s progress is directly connected to the discovery and use of […]


Five lessons from an unpretentious post

  Yesterday, I posted this inspirational quote on my Facebook page, as I usually do every day at 8am: “You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people that you do.” – Tom, a friend of Anne Lamott. Update: Ok, judging by the […]


Singles: choose yourselves

  You probably remember the time in school when everyone got together to form a sports team. Two team leaders would take turns picking the players. One would say “So-and-so, come”, then the other one would say “I chose So-and-so”; everyone expecting to be among the chosen ones.  Obviously, the best players would be chosen […]

It is usually brought on by the “tisnot myfaultis” virus, occuring in the majority of the population. Acute excusitis is characterized by frequent justifications by the patient over something that did not or will not work. Other symptoms include: […]


Righteous anger

  The other day, I posted this on my Facebook: “You can accomplish more in a day of righteous anger than in a year of passivity.” And many have asked, “What is righteous anger?” Apparently, it’s not as obvious as I thought. You know what the words ‘righteous’ and ‘anger’ mean. Maybe you’ve never seen […]
