It is late evening. It would have been the time that everyone in the neighborhood is out enjoying the evening breeze while also appreciating and drinking in God's marvel of sunshine...we would all be out bathing in the golden evening rays that make a romantic evening everyone's dream, especially the team single and satisfied. But… Continue reading But I don’t need to marry
Now that we are talking about how difficult it is to change a person, let’s think for a while about this grave mistake. Often, I will have a friend or acquaintance asking me, “I have this guy, I have this girl, I really love them, and we are really into each other, we match each… Continue reading ‘I will change him after we marry’ and other marinating disasters
"If a man loves you, there isn't anything they won’t do for you. If he can't change for you, he is not the one!" That was Tracy's pickup line, and the damsel said it with a tone of finality and self-enjoyment. She really believed every single word that was coming out of her mouth. Talk… Continue reading If a man loves you…
It is true to say Jesus was as political as he could get. However, his politic was different: it rejected the status quo while fighting for and embracing the underdog, it unambiguously repressed self-glorification and instead uplifted humility, it harshly judged impunity and instead championed justice, it warned critically against selfishness and cried out for… Continue reading Jesus, the Countercultural Opposition Leader
So, let me start with this. Both of you display a level of thoughtfulness and ingenuity that's not common in politics, and you seem to believe in your rather unorthodox approaches. On one hand, I can say Madam Justina displayed levelheadedness in describing the background behind your manifestos in the recent deputy presidential debate. Now,… Continue reading On the deputy presidential debate: Wajackoyah and Justina, am still not convinced!
Weuh! Let me start there. Things are bad, they have been bad, and kuna vile. I and a few hundred others around me have been complaining that the days are moving so fast, and am not sure whether they are moving so fast because we are hellbent lost in trying to keep up with the… Continue reading Why I will not vote for Wajackoyah, even if I like his narrative
Dr. Luke, Second volume of Acts, to the church in Kenya, I salute you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ. In as much as many have purported to know the will of God for you regarding what scripture and the Spirit say about the present times, and thus misleading many… Continue reading To the Churches in Kenya;
We just celebrated madaraka day. The screens were flashing with pictures of a close to 10-year tenure of a government that once raised our hopes like baking powder does to baking flour. However, am yet to meet a Kenyan who is not nursing a broken heart, at least from the pinch of the economy. I… Continue reading Madaraka- are we there yet?
There are a few God-forsaken characters I try accommodating, but there is a particular breed I have no stomach for. They will treat you as if they are the most important individuals on the earth, and it is a golden opportunity to even access them, never mind how inconveniencing it is or the cost you're paying… Continue reading African Time
This week has been a down for Kenya as we lost our beloved His Excellency Emilio Stanley Kibaki. I am not old enough to have witnessed everything, but at least I remember life was way much easier and cheaper in his time. I didn't hear much corruption as today, and money had more value, I… Continue reading Goodbye, our fallen heroes, we didn’t care much about you
For many of us, when we hear of an evangelist, our minds immediately scroll to an image of someone like Billy Graham, a man who may be dressed in a three-piece suit speaking to a large crowd leading many to Christ. Of course, a nice raised dais to voice the evangelistic calls and an ideally… Continue reading Review of Evangelism as Exiles by Elliot Clark
“The Bible says it, I believe it, that settles it,” writes Michael Bird (p.87) in his book, Seven things I wish Christians knew about the Bible. Michael, at this point, is addressing one of the seemingly very spiritual stances among professing Christians, yet a very stupid one that demonstrates ignorance of the highest order. This… Continue reading Seven things I wish Christians knew about the Bible Review
Kwani Sisi ni Wanawake seems to have been the new trend in town for the last one week. From one status to another, with some unmistakable perfectly-picked pictorials with this eye-catching phrase, this insolent phrase is all over. Do you know there is even an official song by that title? I don't even know whether… Continue reading Kwani Sisi ni Wanawake
If there is one thing that has literally driven me crazy about the Kenyan media, it's this language of two horses. I mean, one can no longer enjoy watching the news without having to bear with the depressing polarized talk that selectively sells the propaganda of one of the so-called horses and actively demonizes the… Continue reading Why the 2022 Elections is not and (cannot) should not be a Race of Two Horses
The valentine season is just fading, and for some God-knows-what reason, some human being somewhere might be regretting how things went. While some loves are blossoming, there are others that finally hit the rock bottom in the worst time imaginable. Painful breakups, separations, and dumping came knocking. By all merits, the death of a loved… Continue reading This beast, breakup…
As a member of Kenya's singles association, I tell you the so-called month of love has a lot to offer. Valentine is around the corner and as you could say, love is in the air, as in it's just everywhere, or so I hear. Am not an expert in valentine and all that, still, I… Continue reading Valentine for Everyone
Part 3 I rarely make New Year resolutions, let me start there. Mine usually don’t last a year if am being honest, at least they never did and before the first quarter is over, I am usually cruising somewhere around the third revised version. Nonetheless, I like planning ahead, and getting a few things done,… Continue reading 2021 Reflections and 2022 Projections
Part 2 The reason why I reconnoitered the tricks the mind played on me last year is because there were some things I found hard to reconcile. It is one thing to know in your head you’re forgiven, it is another thing to live as one forgiven! Without giving room to the numerous guilt trips,… Continue reading 2021 Reflections and 2022 Projections
Part 1 2021 was one short year compared to 2020, but the lessons were not as few; actually, am realizing every year has better lessons. I have a load of them but here, I just wanna pass through what I think was most outstanding, in three parts. The first two will be my reflections on… Continue reading 2021 Reflections and 2022 Projections
Part 1 Image from here Love at first sight, I think, speaks of romantic love and it connotes being love-struck from the very first time one sees someone. Now, I do not mean to downplay our genuine human experiences, but I believe there is something wrong here. I believe the right word for this is… Continue reading Why I don’t believe in Love at first Sight
What exactly truly defines who we are? Where should we look to know who we really are? Should it be better to ask whose we are? Or where do we belong? The question of identity is a question of heart language in our culture. Virtually every action of our lives is an attempt to answer… Continue reading Our Identity centred on Christ
They are hurt, full of bleeding hearts, blackened hearts, they are roasting with hate, they brew hatred for morning coffee, they lost the shape of love ages ago, they are driven by lust and hate and selfishness and intense dependence, all in the name of self-love. They are unhealthy, they are toxic, but they love-… Continue reading These little cold hearts, how can they love?
If you're a fan of movies like I am, and probably an avid lover of series films, then you might have crossed paths with Lucifer. For those who're yet to, I don't mean the legendary character mentioned in apocalyptic contexts here and there in the bible; I mean the Netflix-adopted film, Lucifer. Its title is… Continue reading Now that you’ve watched Lucifer
With social media, you only get to see what is presented, not all there is (Image from here) I have learned that your integrity is questionable. When I knew you, you appeared to me as an incredible truth meter, little did I know you were designed by your makers to deceive the masses. You're the… Continue reading Mirror mirror on the wall, when did you become a liar? Part 2
Mirror, mirror on the wall, I don't even have the guts to ask who is fairest of them all, I don't care who is the most beautiful, I can see what is staring at me, it is definitely not beautiful. They call me blessed, I don’t feel so blessed. They call me beautiful; I am… Continue reading Mirror mirror on the wall, when did you become a liar?
If you come from a place like where I come from, then you might have been socialized to think “mgeni” is more special than anyone in the house. There were those plates preserved for the visitor; alone. There were cups too, porcelain ones to be exact; and nice-looking too, at least by the standard of… Continue reading For mgeni: our growth heritage
We live in a day where the church has become so much ineffective, so irrelevant, and nominal that she can be described as one big house with a cross at the top, which is closed on Sunday and opened the following Sunday... just think how you would answer these questions if someone were to ask,… Continue reading The Scattered Persecuted church: what happened to the missional church?
In the previous posts, we established that it is incredibly easy to grow believing in the wrong things. The main reason includes, as human beings, we are easy to deceive, we easily believe lies especially when they suit us. We also believe wrong things if it is all we have ever known. This implies that,… Continue reading Mind your life, leave mine alone
In the previous post available here, we saw that we easily grow believing in the wrong or false things. Someone said it is ridiculously easy to deceive human beings but unbelievably difficult to convince or even show them that they have been cheated/lied to. It is a universal truth that if we grow being taught… Continue reading Programable by design: why Christians should care about what they interact with
Have you ever heard of the saying “God helps those who help themselves?” I am sure almost everyone assumes this is from the bible. What about, “a parent is the second god?” And “cleanliness is second to godliness?” Well, if none of these rings a bell, I am sure you have heard “We’re all God’s… Continue reading Scriptures of the masses
