We all need bailouts

Acts 3:13 The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our ancestors has glorified his servant Jesus, whom you handed over and rejected in the presence of Pilate, though he had decided to release him.

Acts 3:15 and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.

In Singapore, the famous Amos Yee, the anti-LKY, and anti-Jesus blogger is still in remand. It was because the bail wasn’t given, not that cash was required. It is understandable that his parents would be reluctant as the bail conditions were strict.

If Amos had been smart, he would have left out his anti-Jesus rant and his vile sexual drawing of LKY. Now, even the liberal activist could not support him out loud as a freedom of speech argument alone. Perhaps, He is very smart and did it all for fame and for youtube hits regardless of the consequences. Alas, Amos would not find support because unlike CPF, it is not personal. Continue reading

Be angry for what

Ps 4:4 Be angry, and do not sin. Meditate within your heart on your bed, and be still.

Why are we so angry? Even entering into fights that don’t belong to us. The news of an angry and vile anti Lee Kuan Yew and anti-Jesus video made by 16 year old Amos Yee has been making Youtube rounds with over 200,000 hits. Any claims of being intelligent is negated by the repeated cursing and curses at Jesus Christ. I saw Amos at a liberal Christian event perhaps taken there by his mum. It did not help. Surely, we can’t blame his parents.

The liberal US newspapers who are now making Amos their mascot for free speech would do well to remember that from the 60s to the 80s was a time of great turbulence. The US for example, from 69’ to 75’ bombing of Cambodia resulted in over 600,000 innocent deaths. The bombing exceeded the entire World War II payload. But, newspapers are often biased, selective nor are entirely independent. Free speech can be a conduit for external influences as we well know from the legions of US preachers visiting Singapore each week. Continue reading

Easter 2015

Is 46:3 “Listen to me, you descendants of Jacob, all the remnant of the people of Israel, you whom I have upheld since your birth, and have carried since you were born. 4 Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you.”

Matt 5:13-16 13 “You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

Easter 2015, the Cross seems so far away just as much as the remnant of Israel had forgotten about ever returning to Jerusalem in Isa 46:3. After a long wait, we begin to live in unbelief although still calling ourselves people of faith. Without vision, we perish and return no more. So is for many of us in the GLBT Christian community. Will we be able to come Home to our new Jerusalem on earth as it is in heaven? Continue reading
