People sin because they fear they don’t have enough. Who can blame them? Without the existence of a gracious God, the world is bleak and unfriendly. Dog eat dog. In a world like this, it’s hard to be like Jesus when it seems everyone else is getting ahead. You are not first called to be like Jesus, you are first called to sit at His feet, receive His love, grace and wisdom. … More Right believing produces right living. Empowering or untrue?

In the Gospel of Grace circles, the truism of “Right believing produces Right living” gets tossed around a lot. Many people are blessed by this phrase and have made it the anthem of their lives, yet others object, citing just because a person “knows” to do something doesn’t mean he will do it. . In my own life, the summary of my struggle, wrestle and victory can be summarized in the above phrase. However, in order to do the phrase justice, I want to unpack it for you because I believe it may really change your life in ways unimaginable. … More Right believing produces right living.

How did double missed flights end up with a serendipitous conversation about “Principles”, Financial markets, Oppenheimer, the idea of true knowledge, the limitations of human intelligence, the nature of a photon, wave-particle duality of light, quantum mechanics, retro-causation, how Penrose postulates the “shadow” of a multiverse, how actions can have effects BEFORE and after the time it happens on the quantum scale and the Bible? God can create what you really need from uncomfortable spaces in our lives. … More A missed flight, Serendipity, Quantum Mechanics and the Bible
As introduced in my last post, I ask if Stephen Hawking was a brilliant scientist or a cosmic orphan. More appropriately, did he feel more like a brilliant scientist or a person with an orphan spirit, not knowing the purpose in which he was made? Making it difficult to reveal the deeper side of Hawking is the public persona that obscures. This post is an attempt to find out the real Hawking behind public perceptions. I guess you could call this post, “Psycho-analyzing Hawking, A Christian Perspective”, and in the process to demystify some atheist memes and share a little about my own journey to home. My posts are summarized as follows: 1) Hawking’s final conclusions about God and the universe in his book “The Grand Design” are purposely incoherent but masked in confidence. 2) The heavy hitters of science disagree with it. 3) He probably knew this but did it anyway. 4) This reveals more about the deeper side of Hawking than his public persona does. 5) A person can truly know himself fully when we know God fully.

(The Heavy Hitters of Science disagree.)
I recall my own journey. Just like Hawkings, I too got “crippled” at what was to be the prime of a man’s life, there was so much I wanted to do, my bodily components failed, and my brain functions also started to fail as well. Experience told me to despair, but intellect led me to hope. In that spirit, there are three things I would like to tell Dr. Hawkins. … More Stephen Hawking: Brilliant Scientist or Cosmic Orphan? 3 things I wish to tell him.
You know that friend that you’re waiting for that keeps texting you “I’m almost there” but hasn’t even left the house yet?
I felt that way about God many times, and just when I wanted to write about that, I had a divine meeting during my quick 2 day trip to Dallas. Why divine? Meet PJ and Ann, the two good-looking couple on the right … … More God, are you always on time? #700resumesIn7months.
Many skeptics, including myself, used to scoff at the Tower of Babel. And yet I can’t deny that it’s actually the best theory out there of why ancient languages had common theology and history even when nations couldn’t communicate with each other. The Bible is in Hebrew and Greek, so very different from Chinese. If people were evolved randomly over millions of years, it is not intuitive that separated cultures that couldn’t communicate would precisely have the same precision of “mythology” of Noah’s ark, or that the same “idea” that righteousness comes with sacrifice. This is not intuitive at all. The odds are astounding. … More The Gospel embedded in Chinese Characters
I spend years alone on Valentine’s Day wondering “who could love someone like me?”, while looking at how decades of an autoimmune disease ravaged my body, my career, relationships and mind. Doctors, charismatic prayer meetings, yoga and supplements were hardly enough to stop the decline. This post is to testify how God’s love changed everything and … More From Curses to Cupcakes – A Valentine’s Day story.

When people like Bruno Mars, Katy Perry sings, we get a sugar high, like eating a bunch full of tic tacs. And, like the anti-Mentos, “it doesn’t satisfies.”
But when God sings over you, it transforms because He speaks the past, present and future into existence, with your destiny forged through Jesus Christ. … More Vlog: Stand strong, God sings over you. #moveoverBrunoMars
