  • Erupting from the Core of Struggle

    13 February, 2018

    From the search for answers the time arrives when a believer refuses compromise. He extends both hands and lays holds with all his might a vacuum, that place where all reason is omitted.

  • When the World Plunges

    6 September, 2017

    Ponder now a western world devoid of moral understanding, that filled with pride now calls evil good. Planet earth plunges willingly towards sin and death (even Christians), for they cannot measure good, and can only pursue evil. There is no tugging upon God's guiding line of…...[read more]

  • Echoes of Yesterday

    2 July, 2017

    Half a century ago the Beatles longed for yesterday, when troubles seemed so far away. Two and a half millennia ago the Israelites longed for freedom, to also place their troubles far way.
