How Jesus turned the world upside down

The problem with the world is not its diversity - social, ethnic, or otherwise. I am white, he is black; I belong to society's elite, he is a poor farmer; I speak Yoruba, she is Fulani. No. The problem arises when love and service are left out and the elements of power and superiority are … Continue reading How Jesus turned the world upside down

Oriki Mi (My Oriki)

    In the Yoruba worldview, an individual's identity is closely tied to the community. It might be said of a person that 'the community is, therefore I am.' Out of this context emerges the Oriki. It is a praise poem celebrating the individual as a member of his family or clan. And it summarily recounts … Continue reading Oriki Mi (My Oriki)

The Christian view of Work

A secular worldview, that is, an outlook on life that fails to take God and his revelation into account, distorts work in either of 2 ways. It could see work as a meaningless but necessary burden which we have to bear in order to survive, or it turns work into an idol - the sole … Continue reading The Christian view of Work

True Love

At a time like this when the word 'Love' is being thrown around, it is helpful to reflect on what love really is.

Living Words – Dallas Willard (1935 – 2013)

There is truly no distinction between sacred and secular except what we have created. And that is why the division of the legitimate roles and functions of human life into the sacred and secular does incalculable damage to our individual lives and to the cause of Christ. Holy people must stop going into "church work" … Continue reading Living Words – Dallas Willard (1935 – 2013)

Less than 2 weeks into the new year, terrorists attacked a French publishing company, killing 12 people. We hear reports of the atrocities by ISIS in Iraq and Syria. And here in Nigeria, we are fed stories of the latest Boko Haram abduction or massacre. Lest it seem like the acts of radicals are within … Continue reading Book Review: A Public Faith, by Miroslav Volf

The Gospel according to Hollywood

A theme of Salvation runs through several Hollywood movies. From Maleficent to Snow White and the Huntsman to Independence Day, there is a common story. In spite of the different plots and characters, one finds an unmistakable unifying theme which basically goes like this: Something is wrong with the world. It could be  a spell cast … Continue reading The Gospel according to Hollywood

Introducing…Lecrae

I keep a distance from rap music. The reasons are pretty obvious: It tends to glorify violence, promote sexual immorality and idolize money and material possessions. As a whole it seems to promote a culture of pleasure seeking and immorality. However, the rhyme is an aspect I find interesting. There is this tingle of excitement I … Continue reading Introducing…Lecrae
