I’ve always expected the church to be a healing place. Unfortunately, this hasn’t been the case for so many people. If anything, church has stripped the humanity and dignity people have. The very notion that gay people are an abomination communicates a very harmful message to the community. I do not believe that this is […]Read More Gay People Are An Abomination?
The dehumanization of gay people, especially in black communities, is appalling. The word “Istabane” or “faggot” used toward gay people has an underlying message that carries the same weight the word white people used, during apartheid (and still use) toward black people, “kaffir” This is a pure and raw dehumanization. This says: You do not […]Read More The Dehumanization Of Gay People.
People always take credit for every success they have. This is good, until failure comes along. You could have the best-selling book, have number a one song for played for decades or even have the highest success in grades, marriage, painting, drawing, photography, etc. and that could be your ONLY success.

This is not bad, but the burden is often felt on the other side. We are universal beings, and we are only required to bring our […]Read More It’s Not The World’s Fault That You Have Dreams.
In almost everyday I feel very disappointed in God, and I sort of say: Oh wow! You just had to sit there and watch me fail… again. In most cases, I’d work on my spirituality, and all that I feel is required from me (Which is sort of religious, but I’ll get to that.) However, […]Read More Disappointed In God: God’s Infidelity.
I used to believe in that God with anger issues, the one whom I’d secretly believe was so disgusted in the shameful thoughts I had. The worst part of the deal was that I would be dearly punished for such a mind. This is the same God I’d ask for protection in my darkest, scariest […]Read More The Liberation From An Angry God.
“Failing is not a disgrace unless you make it the last chapter of your book.” – Jack Hyles I recently had a discussion with a friend who felt he had disappointed himself beyond measure. He felt like a total failure and there was no way to come back from this. However, this was not the […]Read More Failure And Shame.
Our kids are born, and they are the most happiest people ever. Why don’t we ever wonder this? Why don’t we ever question it? Our babies are the most spirit-filled beings ever.
