Dwayne Wade’s Prayer is answered instead of mine!?

June 22, 2006

Yeph, as you guys can see, and i guess you now know that i was rooting for the Mavs to win the title.

Anyway while the games were still ongoing, i was actually praying for the Mavs to win. Eventhough i think i should be for Wade and his team, but that was before i knew he was also an active Christian.

i found this at wikipedia:

Wade is also among the American Christian adults who tithe, according to the Sun-Sentinel in Fort-Lauderdale, Florida . Wade gave 10% of his $2.6 million salary this season to the Blood Water & the Spirit Ministry on South Prairie Avenue on Chicago’s southside. Wade was a tither before he started playing in the NBA.

Imagine that! 2.6 million’s 10% plus some offerings offcourse, and could it be the reason why he is so blessed right now? The officials(the refs) is on his side, ehehehe the conspiracy, and they won the title.

Well, as the cliche goes: God moves in mysterious ways, whatever His plans is with this fine young athletes life, im sure its for the best as He is the Righteous Judge of all things.

May my brothers and sisters in the faith, pray for this guy, BUT next year ill be rooting for the 76ers again and the Mavs, whoever qualifies first, in which i doubt the Phillies can with their current lineup, up from the GM down.

Okay, fellow tithers, let us not compare ourselves offcourse when another man is more blessed than us, another cliche goes like God knows best, remember?

I’ll also use this opportunity in endorsing a book by Bob SorgĂ© entitled Envy, the Enemy Within.

Until then,

Then God said: Let there be Libertarians? Welcome to my Blog!

June 22, 2006

Hi there, its been awhile and im gonna try and "blog" as much as my schedule would allow.

About this Blog

You might be wondering about the title; Then God said: Let there be Libertarians, contradictory ain' it? =)

Offcourse i somewhat quoted that in the book of Genesis, when God was doing His creating things thingie via His Word: Let there be… Anyway it just means that i believe that human beings are "only made/created" free as allowed by God. We are "libertarians" in God's eyes but He can intervene as He wants.On Title on the browser the topmost reads; Christian Liberty, Lifestyle and Apologetics, let me talk about it briefly one by one…

1. Christian Liberty – yep that's right i believe the "christian" God, and he's the one who gave us the Liberty that we are enjoying right now. We deserve the consequences because we are free. In this category also in my entries, it will tackle non-essential issues of the faith, mostly my opinion about theological matters and orthopraxy like the answer to the question how many times should a Christian brush his teeth? Hehehe.

2. Christian Lifestyle – most of the entries in this category will be about Life and how a Christian like me percieves it, act on its every challenges and benefits, interaction with the world mostly with Evangelism in mind. Hopefully it will not include any non-sense in which iam so fond to do, and ei! i said liberty remember? =)

3. Christian Apologetics – well simply put, its the "defense of the faith", the ones that is essential, so for the faint at heart beware, this one is about hardcore discussions about Faith, "religion" and secular philosophy.

So there visit once in a while. Have fun.

Blessings,
