About this blog

I believe Christians out of all other faith should have minimum separation between secular and sacred life. After all we call Christianity, our world view. Some one said, “Bare theology is useless, unless we know how to apply it” and I can’t agree more. I am a firm believer of Bible to be an inspired, infallible, inerrant, word of God, but what good it is if I can’t apply it to my life now and here. So, in this blog I will discuss my secular experiences in biblical view, the right, wrong, lies, and all. Continue to read and engage, God bless.

Stages of Samaritan’s Conversion

Stages of Samaritan’s Conversion

Interestingly there is a pattern in many conversion stories. I see one here, in the Gospel of John Ch 4: 1-26.   1.    Resist – The first time when Christ starts a conversation, looking for our hearts we outright decline, like this Samaritan woman, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (John 4:9)   2.    Rationalize – with a little more conversation, we rationalize comparing and confusing spiritual truths with wordily “wisdom”, we argue,

That Man at the Pool and, me!

That Man at the Pool and, me!

Scripture Reference – John 5:1-15. I didn’t have infirmity for 38 years, I didn’t live in 1st century Jerusalem, I don’t live in a public pool, I am not helplessly laying and depending on other’s mercy for my livelihood. But I know, I was there once at my own Bethesda. So crippled, so spiritually sick, So painfully watching the spiritual transformation in others, So trying to get into the pool of freedom from my own shame, guilt, and sin. But every time! It became anot

Give Your Messy Fish

Give Your Messy Fish

“What are they among so many?” (John 6:9)   Andrew asked to himself, holding five barley loaves and two small fish. Intriguing, we all have asked this question to ourselves, now, much more than 2000 years ago! This is one of Satan’s most favorite lies for centuries. "What are they among so many?" Choices good or bad, just one choice has the potential to change a life.   One Adam, one Eve, one fruit, One Abraham, one Isaac, one Joseph, one Jacob, One E

When Caught Between the Mattress and The Wall.

When Caught Between the Mattress and The Wall.

During one of the deep cleaning weekend days, I found my husband holding a twin mattress slanted on a wall, and my daughter playing bother-less in between the matters and the wall. Oh, the obsessed mother I am, and an experienced nurse about the safety……. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.   I asked my girl, “Papa (Baby), why are you playing there?” I continued with a cautious tone, “That is dangerous, that mattress might fall on you.”  She, with the continued blissful smile, s

Christ - Too Familiar or Too Strange!

Christ - Too Familiar or Too Strange!

Christ taught the crowd proclaiming, “I am the bread of life!” (John 3: 48). After that teaching, many left Jesuses’ crowd. Among the followers who left Christ, I see two groups. The first group left as they questioned, “Isn’t this Jesus, the son of Joseph? We know his father and mother. How can he say, ‘I came down from heaven’?” (John3:42). For them, Christ is too familiar. They clinked on to his humanity it was hard for them to believe His divinity. This group still exists today they claim, “

That Unfair Lables

That Unfair Lables

I despise labeling people with their past mistakes, mishaps, failures, depravity, sin and plain humanity. I dread my labels as well, especially the unfair labels that I know in-depth holds some truths about me. But to face the reality, we all hold titles that we hate, and we give unfair labels to the ones we hate, don’t we! But reading through John’s gospel I see people labeled, so utterly mercilessly labeled as follow, “The Samaritan woman with five husbands” “The woman caught in th

Star Trek, Cultural Connection, and Biblical Truth

Started watching star trek – the next generation, in the past few months. I really enjoy it for what it is, sci-fi series with most use of artistic license. The motive for this almost 40 years old female to watch star trek is pure curiosity, curiosity of what made this series to run for 5 decades successfully with that many episodes, that many books and novels featuring it. I am intrigued by this kind of influential media and its relevance in cultural connections.   After almost watchi

The Locusts in and of Itself, Neither Good nor Bad!

The Locusts in and of Itself, Neither Good nor Bad!

“So, I will restore to you the years that the swarming [k]locust has eaten, The crawling locust, The consuming locust, And the chewing locust, My great army which I sent among you.” (Joel 2:25)                                              I have heard this verse quoted many times in personal testimonies, rightfully most of the times. The immense beauty of our Lord’s unfailing love is candidly expressed here. Yet, I for once read the last sentence of this verse with

Do Not Spiritualize the Marriage. - Introduction

Do Not Spiritualize the Marriage. - Introduction

Every time, I teach my nursing students about STI, they rumble in their own young adult way, “Celibacy…. Celibacy.” With A smile I always respond, “It’s a great call, there are many I admire who are called to that, but I am not cut out for that.” I suggest, “Married, monogamy.” And they laugh, some with a painful, desperate, and disappointed laughs. Let me start by saying this, personally, I won’t be myself without my marriage, my husband, this dreamlike beautiful yet annoyingly painful (at time

Joel’s Longing is Our Reality.

Joel’s Longing is Our Reality.

"And it shall come to pass That whoever calls on the name of the Lord Shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, As the Lord has said, Among the remnant whom the Lord calls" (Joel 2:32, NKJV.)   The Jewish audience of this prophecy would have contemplated, “how easy it would be to just call upon the Name of The Lord, instead of keeping up with 613 some commandments.”   The far standing gentile audience would have th
