A man was walking through the thick jungle, when he heard a lion roar. Quickly his mind raced through some alternatives. Should he run? —No, he wouldn’t know whether he ran straight at it unprepared. He couldn’t hide; what an awful feeling to never know whether the lion was right behind him lurking. He knew what he had to choose, but it wasn’t easy. Continue reading
The ancient king of Israel, David, had understood some important things. He was a controversial king, famous for his great success in war already from his youth, and his great musical talent. Unfortunately, history also made it known that he once had an affair—a real bad one. How was he supposed to go on after this? Continue reading
I am so glad the bible has two sides. They say our right brain feeds the free flow of creativity—that it loves to explore what lies outside of logic; love, peace and concepts ungraspable—mysteries and the unknown. Adventure and curiosity find their sources there. The left side on the other hand loves the concrete. Known facts and logical reasoning is it’s joy. Some of us have more of one, some more of the other. God knows this, and made us like this. Continue reading
God has a kitchen, where he calls us, and then starts cooking our destiny. A fulfilled destiny is a pie in his refrigerator.

At God’s heart there will always be: “Mercy triumphs over judgment,” and “God our Saviour who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” Continue reading
That is supposed to be a funny title. I don’t know about you, but too many times I have seen people who dedicate their life to fight “the prosperity gospel”. You find youtube full of videos like “The Prosperity Gospel Revealed”, and similarly you find lot of preachers preaching this gospel revealed here and there. Some dedicate their whole ministry to this. Now “the prosperity gospel” is not a biblical term, but rather a term invented by people who are afraid of having money. Now it is time to attack back—not at any person specifically, but the mindset that Christians have to be poor to love Jesus more than money. Continue reading
