MALACHI: Bored with God

MALACHI: Bored with God

When, in the name of Jesus, we show compassion for others, God is honored. The work of Christian discipleship is the antidote to spiritual boredom.

Augmented Reality

Reality is things as they are. No fantasy. No illusion. No wishful thinking. Augmented reality is things as they should be. Through the power of God, we can move from the world as it is to the world as it should be. It’s a radical augmentation that makes us virtually new creations in Christ!

God’s Nagware

The Ten Commandments are pop-ups that we should never turn off, especially since they tend to pop up whenever we are facing temptation. God put these commandments in place for our benefit and the benefit of the community of faith. We need to heed them, and update our consciences with them, every day. It’s the […]

Our faith is a journey, and never complete at any one moment. After the death of a loved one or our own illnesses or infirmities, even strong faith can be shaken. But may we always be on the lookout for the positive virtues, like faith, hope, and love.
