On Our Dehumanization and Rejecting God

We are not much different from Boxer from the story: Animal Farm. “I will work harder!”

As we pause and evaluate man’s position in world history, it won’t be difficult to see that civilization is experiencing the peak of psychological distress; both as a society and as individuals. When speaking of the etiology of psychological disorders, I always come back to the theory of human needs by Erich Fromm.  We, as human beings, have basic needs to satisfy. Do check yourself out base on these needs and maybe this can give you the answer as to why you’re feeling low or why you are feeling empty.  It shows that you have been frustrated on one or more of these needs:

  1. We have a need to know who we truly are (Identity)
  2. We have a need to connect with others (Relation)
  3. We have a need to belong to a group or community (Rootedness)
  4. We have a need to rise above challenges and sufferings (Transcendence)
  5. We have a need for variation and adventure (Excitation)
  6. We have a need for constancy and consistency in our reality (Frame of Orientation)

Fears Anxieties: Meditations 15 January 2022

I’ve been reflecting on my life, from my decisions back in 2021 as I woke up with anxiety this morning. I started wondering, is this really what The Lord wanted? Is my heart hardened and am I now acting out of human pride? I pleaded with The Lord: if I am walking on my own way then please correct me at once! If I am headed to a place where you won’t be present, then I don’t want to be there! (This reminds me of and incident between Moses and God -Exodus 33:15)

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28

In Christian Counselling, people complain to me: “what is Romans 8:28 if things in life keep going wrong? When things we plan for and things we want never go our way?”  I will place in this article what I discuss with my clients regarding this query.

Christian Faith to Optimism

One thing is required to please God and that is faith (Hebrews 11:6). For this involves knowing who He is and approaching Him accordingly.  As such, I don’t think God enjoys seeing us plan and consider things out of fear and pessimism.  It doesn’t, like Moses’ sin, hallow or give glory to The Lord (Numbers 20:12).

Unleashing Grace in Our Lives

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down,
and shaken together, and running over,…

Luke 6:38

The consistent message of my recent articles: Overspiritualizing Things and Deliver The Bread, have been emphasizing the truth that we don’t just pray and sit on our butts to wait for the blessings of The Lord to come.  We have to respond to God’s call in order to grab God’s blessings for us. The life of the Christian is not what some people imagine that we have discovered and freed a genie and this powerful being is now under our command.  We say to this genie: “heal me” and we get healed.  We pray “Lord, prosper me” and we expect to win the lottery.

Deliver The Bread 2021

It’s already 11 days into 2021 and I’m still learning from The Lord about how to handle our blogs.  As you can see, my latest post was 2 months ago; I plan to work on this slacked habit when The Lord reminded me a lesson about king David.   

Then Jesse said to his son David, “Take now for your brothers an ephah of this dried grain and these ten loaves, and run to your brothers at the camp.
– 1 Samuel 17:17
