    Love Is Kind – The Healing Power Of Love

    Love Is Kind – The Healing Power Of Love. That year, my boyfriend had forgotten my birthday. I didn’t take it as a big deal since I wasn’t exactly the party, celebration kind of girl. Plus, I rarely celebrated the day myself unless someone else decided to do it on my behalf. Most years, it just went by like any other day unless someone surprised me like happened that particular year. I was therefore shocked when I got a call from a friend telling me, “When you are in town, please give me a call, I have something that has your name on it and belongs to you.” When I…

    The Depth, Height, Weight, Breadth Of Love – Rethinking Love In Today’s World

    The Depth, Height, Weight, Breadth Of Love – Rethinking Love In Today’s World. A few weeks back, I got onto twitter and started tweeting about LOVE. That particular morning a few weeks back I had just re-read Paul’s letter in 1 Corinthians 13 with new eyes. See, at that particular point in time, the notion of love really confounded me (In all fairness, I’m still confounded and learning). I had movie definitions, dictionary definitions and novel definitions etc. Anyhow, in my confusion, I read that chapter a few times and yet I still couldn’t get it. How could Paul say love never fails and yet I (mistakenly and supposedly) saw…

    Everyone Matters – Let’s Not Allow Feminism To Tell Us Otherwise

    Everyone Matters – Let’s Not Allow Feminism To Tell Us Otherwise. In the past, when I read an article or post about a woman who had achieved so much in the face of all the sexism going on I would get excited. Often following these posts, were comments, mostly written by other women cheering. Lauding tremendous success. Explaining how brave she was for standing up against men and rising above the odds. I would get excited that a woman was able to beat the men who had oppressed us for so long. As a woman it often made me feel validated. In fact at some point (a very short time)…

    Is It True God Love’s Sinners It’s Only Their Sin He Hates – Exploring Love In The New Age

    Is It True God Love’s Sinners It’s Only Their Sin He Hates – Exploring Love In The New Age. New age has really preached and spread this idea. The notion that, “God loves sinners and it’s only their sin that he hates.” We hear it all the time. Even some priests, pastors, reverends throw it around during their services. In fact a man I knew once used to tell me this every time I asked him to stop a particularly wicked habit. He would go like, “Who are you to tell me to stop my evil vice when God loves me as a sinner? It’s my sin he doesn’t like…

    Here Is Where Broken Hearts Go – Hearts That Don’t Break – Exploring Love In The New Age

    Here Is Where Broken Hearts Go – Hearts That Don’t Break – Exploring Love In The New Age. Whitney Houston (God bless her soul) sang a famous song titled, “Where Do Broken Hearts Go?” Many of us have experienced heart ache in one way or another and had our hearts broken. Is it possible to have an unbreakable heart? Imagine if they sold such hearts, wouldn’t most of us love to purchase one so we wouldn’t feel the stings and arrows that life and people throw our way? For a long time, people often accused me of feeling too much. Of wearing my heart on my sleeve. Of having a…

    Home Is Not Where The Heart Is Found – Home Is Not A Place, Home Is Not A Soul, Home Is A Spirit

    Home Is Not Where The Heart Is Found – Home Is Not A Place, Home Is Not A Soul, Home Is A Spirit. For a long time we have been told and taught that, “Home is where the heart is found is.” Another variation to this idea was the notion that home was a place or a location.  Some place to put our heads when exhausted and tired. Some spot to put our legs at the end of a long day. A refugee away from the cares of life. An area to find peace and to relax. For a long time we have been told and taught that, “Home is where the…

    Is Lying To Those We Cherish Part Of Love – Exploring Love In The New Age. Jim Ed Brown and Helen Cornelius say a song titled, “Lying In Love With You.” One of the lines in the song goes like, “Won’t hurt to tell a white lie or two . When I’m lying in love with you.” “The idea that lying occurs in all intimate relationships may be hard to accept. What may be even harder to acknowledge is that some of those lies may actually be necessary for love to thrive.” writes Dr. Randi Gunther a clinical psychologist and marriage counselor in an article where she seems to be…

    Your Love Should Be Zealous And Passionate – Exploring Love In The New Age

    Your Love Should Be Zealous And Passionate – Exploring Love In The New Age. In the new age that we live in, love has grown cold and numb. Often times, most people just go through the motions of loving others. People who love passionately are often shunned and called denigrating names like radicals, fanatics, weirdos etc. But love should be passionate, hot and zealous for it to be effective and long lasting. In fact God’s love is passionate and zealous. And the bible verse below which is found in the book of Isaiah, show’s us what things hot, zealous and passionate love can accomplish. For unto us a child is born,…

    Redefining and Classifying Love – Types of Love – Exploring Love In The New Age. Over the years, I have heard love classified a variety of ways. The most common psychology classification is the one in which love is grouped into seven categories. Eros Philia Storge Agape Ludus Pragma Philautia I didn’t really believe any of those classifications as they didn’t make sense to me but for a few weeks now, a particular Bible passage has been niggling at the back of my mind. “Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12 And it’s on the basis of that passage that I have…

    It Is Okay To Be Romantic – Romance Was Created By God And Not By The Devil

    It Is Okay To Be Romantic – Romance Was Created By God And Not By The Devil. Jesus is the greatest romantic of all time. I therefore don’t understand believers who want to separate romance from love. There is nothing evil, wicked, weak and dark about romance. It’s time we stopped giving the devil platitudes he has never earned. Which devil has ever created true and genuine romance? Of course the devil is always in the business of duplicates to dilute the original but it doesn’t take away from the true source. People let’s be realistic and lets stop cheating God by giving away all his glory. God created romance. Not the…

    Love Disciplines And Rebukes – Exploring Love In The New Age

    Love Disciplines And Rebukes – Exploring Love In The New Age. I often hear people saying that we shouldn’t talk about hell because it will make people fearful and lead them away from God. Apparently we should only talk about God’s unfailing and abundant love but we should sweep his wrath under the carpet. Yes, I also once thought that way. But not anymore. The same God who was pleased seeing his own innocent son suffer on the cross because he had taken the whole sin of the world and offered himself as a sacrifice? “Yet it pleased the Lord to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when…

    Do Unlike Poles Attract And Stay That Way In Relationships And Marriage – Exploring Love In The New Age. In dating, relationships and marriage, new age says, unlike poles attract and stay that way. Sound’s nice at first but on deeper introspection it misses a number of principles. Before marriage, unlike poles attract, kind of like Physics principles. Magnetism and magnetic pole attraction. Ying-Yang as the Chinese say. Humans tend to look for people who can give them what they are lacking. Why else would someone go searching for what they already have most will argue. It’s also the complimentary principle.

    Why We Need More Men Who Cry – Exploring Love In The New Age

    Why We Need More Men Who Cry – Exploring Love In The New Age. “Real Men don’t cry.” So new age and society have taught men and boys. Some of the popular adages that society has used to imprison people are beyond me. Teachings like this are how, men started bottling their pain so they could appear manly and stoic. Now, we find them running to hide their tears and pain in so called Man caves: Bars, T.V, Video games, Sports, Work, Alcohol, Club, Sex, Drugs etc. Why? Because society has wrongly taught that real men don’t feel pain and thus don’t cry. But then we discover that as they…

    Is God’s Love Conditional Or Unconditional – Exploring Love In The New Age

    God’s love is Conditional, it is not unconditional! WHAT? I think I just had a nightmare I immediately reasoned when I woke up one cheery morning a few days ago and the first thing that came to my mind, wasn’t how lovely the weather was, but that God’s love is conditional. It sounded almost like hearsay and blasphemy! God’s love is not unconditional? After everything the Televisions, Newspapers, Magazines, Novels, Hollywood, a hoard of Pastors, Priests, Popes, Prophets etc had been preaching and screaming for years? How could God’s love be Conditional? The thought alone started causing me Cognitive dissonance. I started remembering all the times I had advocated for blindly unconditional…
