To put it simply, it measures a person in the 3B scale- – Beauty, Brain and Bucks. It is a pity to note that even Christians fall into this worldly trap. Our God wants his children to be counter-revolutionaries presenting the kingdom values to the world around us. We are called to be salt and light of the world. Our way of life should be radically different from that of Continue reading →


  Language plays a vital part in any relationship. Language is the medium in which we communicate our ideas and feelings to others. Language distinguishes man from animal. Of all creations, only man is gifted with the ability to speak with words. Words that we speak are powerful. In the beginning, God spoke and the things happened.
