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.

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.
I have many stories of devastation that will make anyone cringe. But I also have literally dozens of non-trivial stories that tell of God’s goodness. These were the ones that were either stepping stones – helping me believe God really does exist, He’s there, and He loves me enough to help and change me. Or the ones that were so dark and painful – these provide the contrast that set up just how redemptive the God-story lines were. … More Dear Prisoners of Hopelessness …
Fish was the topic I had a very superficial understanding of, and in an essay question, you cannot hide your ignorance. I felt my soul being crushed at that moment. If I flunk one whole essay question, you’ll never get an A. At that moment, I looked carefully at the question, it was on the mechanics of fishes – how they move, how they swim and what makes them efficient. All of a sudden, I got a solid idea (or perhaps a desperate idea), and I knew this idea came from God because almost nobody else that I asked after the exam did the same thing as I did. … More How I helped my Biology Teacher believe in Miracles

Have you noticed how empty advice like “just believe in yourself” or “don’t ever let anyone tell you your doing it wrong” are? These questions are rooted in liberal postmodernism that is steeped in today’s culture. Yet, this spirit is nothing new, the Bible has preempted this a millennium ago. They repacked ideas that men should make themselves the final arbiter of truth and power. No, my friend, I argue that the great God-shaped hole in your heart can only be filled by the fullness of God’s grace, in Christ Jesus. … More Believing in Yourself vs the God-shaped Hole in your heart (Abeyance Series: Part 1)

Pursuing music became a bittersweet memory. Collaborating with other Christian strangers was uncomfortable… I couldn’t trust. Going outdoors was a dreaded idea. Seeing my own reflection in a mirror or picture reminded me of how far I had fallen. Here’s my response today. I’ll do music, with video, with new Christian brothers around the world. I’ll just do all the things I was afraid of doing. Why not? There’s Jesus. Perfect love drives out all fear. Thank you Jesus.
