Monday, June 29th, 2015

My Facebook feed has erupted into a rainbow war of sorts after the recent same-sex marriage ruling in the United States. As Christian, my stand should be clear, as how some of my fellow believers put it. That I should be against the ruling. That I should feel sad and angry that today, the definition (Read more...)

There are 2 commonly used statements that deserve attention and scrutiny.

"Gay marriage and the gay agenda seeks to redefine mar (Read more...)

The question of the 42 boys and the bear

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

This post is a reprint of a post by Luke Phang that originally appeared at lukeyishandsome(dot)com.

I read the new post that the boy posted up today — despite telling myself that I should not because I don't want to indulge his need for attention any longer — but I just could not help it. I wanted to hear his side of the story, to make my own judgment. And I wanted to see how he described the coun (Read more...)

There are a lot of things that you cannot do as a dating Christian couple.

Why I Disagree With the Christian Notion of Wives Submitting

Friday, March 20th, 2015

This post is a reprint of a post by Luke Phang that originally appeared at lukeyishandsome(dot)com.

So Dawn and I had a very interesting discussion a few days ago. One that did not end conclusively because I'm not the type of person who can debate or argue well in a face to face conversation, and who needs time to think out my thoughts and pen it all down.

Ruben L. Oppenheimer


I wanted to write something about this when it first came out. I felt that there was something inside me that wanted to be heard. Unfortunately my first reaction was bad and did not at all represent what I wanted to say, and it hurt the feelings of my friends. Which I am absolute (Read more...)

This post is a reprint of a post by Luke Phang that originally appeared at lukeyishandsome(dot)com.

God. Some of us believe in him, some of us don't. But for those of us who do, God can come in many shapes and forms too. Some of us believes that there are many of Him. Or Her. Some believe that there's just one God, almighty and omnipotent. Some believe that we can be Gods too, if we try.
