Mere Christianity

with 2 comments

at the end of the days, we can be sure for only one thing, that we are all just a mere human.

I have been struggling with some kinda mind game these past weeks. It all started with a tweet saying that I should check my email account. I did not recognize the tweeter which apparently followed only 4 accounts and had zero follower. As I was holding my blackberry with my left hand and iphone on my right hand while facing macbook and ipad as the same time, i did not need a tweet saying that I should check my email account. Technologies did not allow me to miss even the latest updates let alone an email. I did not get the mentioned email, or so I thought.

Last two weeks, digging on my spam email, I found out the email. It was a bizzare email. She (I assumed it’s a she) suggested me to delete one of my blog posts. She said it was misguided because the person profiled on my blogpost was not anyone like what was written there. She said I got tricked and my post might lead people tricked too. To tell you the truth, the blogpost was about a person whom I looked up to. And what she was trying to say was the person highlighted there committed some sexual harrasments to one church member which caused this church members refused to visit the church again. I was troubled. I was deeply troubled.

Ten Words, Two Stones, Three Truths

“Run, John, run the law commands,
But gives me neither feet nor hands;
Far better news the gospel brings:
It bids me fly; it gives me wings.”

I was late today. And it was raining. I felt so cold. But one thing for sure, I should not be not on the best seat for my favorite speaker. I understood that there was nothing in this life that will last forever, not even a good preacher. So, I intended to make every minutes counted. So, I boldly moved to the front seat sitting there alone and cold.  Thank goodness, as the sermon was delivered, a group of New Zealanders sat on my row. Now, that will help to ease this coldness. I can be more relaxed in enjoying today. It was all about the ten commandments.

As every good Bible teacher would do, he expectedly open his preach with something catchy. Well, he opened the sermon with a song, kiddy song, the ten commandments. It was a warm breeze to this cold sanctuary, where we can witness the sincerity of children singing for God. And I learnt it as quickly as I could.

He is busy.

It is not a secret that I am a fan of Mr. John Doe. Who’s John Doe? Well, you might not know him. He is no Whitney Houston, by the way, may she rests in peace. amen. he is just a speaker in my church. I address him as the church’s pastor. But he always introduces himself as a Bible Teacher.

As far as I know, and that is not further than the sanctuary, he is somewhat like spiritual superintendent, if there’s such term, in an international school in Indonesia. He comes from the city of a thousand church. I promise myself, one day I will visit that city to do headcount of the churches there. In one fine day, so they called, he stepped in to the church teaching and started to share the Bible insights.

Let’s just skip the part on how I became a regular attendee of this church. And forget that I call myself as regular attendee and not a church member. ….skipping….  Read the rest of this entry »
