Church, Keep the Gospel in Your Protest

In the moment’s heat, the church would be wise not to merely tag along. The crises in our world, in whatever form it manifests, result from the brokenness brought about by sin. Whether it is police brutality or the corrupt system which has nurtured it, we see the fruit of a rebellion which began long ago.

The God my Ancestors knew but didn’t know

Photo by Shutterbouy Photography on Unsplash My Yoruba ancestors (along with most African cultures) believe in a supreme being; they call him Olodumare. They revere him as the source of life and the originator of all that exists. He is too great to come into contact with the universe, so he is distant and aloof….

An Offline Principle for an Online World

Along with the command to love God with our hearts is the directive to love our neighbour as ourselves (Matthew 22:37-40). Before you publish that post, send the tweet, or share the message, take a second and consider if you are adding value to your online neighbour. Is your post edifying?

A Note on Emerson’s ‘Self-Reliance’

But like many others (including me), you may not really grasp why it is such a crucial idea.

Wakanda: A modern African dream

Wakanda is more than a literary setting, it is the cinematic vision of modern Africa, a longing for people of African descent.

Are you up in the air?

The modern individual is unhinged and thus lacks a basis for meaning, truth and morality. Like Ryan Bingham, he is ‘Up in the Air.’

What’s wrong with Jehovah’s Witnesses?

We see them often in our neighbourhoods. A guy and a lady offering to share God’s word with us and leave behind some literature. Their iconic shoulder bag is a constant witness to their devotion and zeal. Jehovah’s witnesses are a religious group comprising about 8 million members globally across over 100,000 congregations.
