Homeless at Home

The Christian optimism is based on the fact that we do not fit in the world. I had tried to be happy by telling myself that man is an animal, like any other which sought its meat from God.

The “Great Boxing Hope” of Apologetics

The real problem is that when we feel that Christian advocacy is all up to us, we lay on ourselves the impossible burden of being the “great boxing hope” who is expected to knock out of the ring all comers. We are expected to be the fearless David who ventures out to slay all Goliaths,… Continue reading The “Great Boxing Hope” of Apologetics
