Where Is Your Focus? Is It Jesus, Minecraft or Politics?

Who are you giving your attention to?

Yes, I am being serious with that question. Where is your focus? As Christians, it is easy to say my focus is on Jesus. However, this is not always the case. I know this to be true because I’ve been a follower of Jesus, for a long time. If you’re just starting your walk with Jesus, the title of this blog post may seem either strange or daunting.

Fear not! I would like to share some insights that may be of help to you and provide a challenge, if you’re having trouble. Though I’m not a serious gamer, I do like to play some games and thought this to be a good avenue. Please listen to the podcast and continue reading the blog post.

“Thou Shall Not Be A Jerk: A Christian Guide to Engaging In Politics

Matthew 6:33 “Seek First The Kingdom of God

Yesterday, I decided to take the plunge and dive into what should be a rewarding experience for you, the readers, and me. As a kid, I love reading books and you could tell by looking at my nose. It was literally covered in ink. Though I did have some dry spells, the love for reading has never left. They say that one’s passion grows best when shared.

It is probably why I maintained a love for God’s Word because I talked with my Father in Heaven about what I read. Today, I can honestly say there was a joy in talking about what I read. Sadly, I never thought to ask God about the other books that I read. I had a similar experience when I joined a book discussion on Fahrenheit 451 in college.

Thou Shalt Not Be a Jerk: Cho, Eugene: 9780781411158: Christianity: Amazon  Canada

If you are reading a blog post on this site, it is a safe bet that you’re interested in Christianity. As you may have guessed, my goal for this blog post is to discuss issues found in Eugene Cho’s book “Thou Shall Not To Be A Jerk: A Christian’s Guide To Engaging Politics”.

This is not meant to be a book review; rather it is a discussion on what Eugene Cho is covering in this book. As it happens, I did major in Political Science and been involved in social activism.

During the 90s, I would have loved the pearls that I’m discovering inside and I’m planning to share some of them. Don’t worry, I am not planning to go hardcore. Not everyone is called to get into politics, yet we do need to know how to not come across as a jerk.

Navigating The Storms of Religious Extremes

Do you feel like you are in the middle of a storm-tossed sea; especially when it comes to social media platforms? Don’t worry, you are not alone. I may be able to help you.

On Christianity Explained, my focus is on Christianity and the main target is the larger Christian community. However, I believe you will find this blog post to be of value; even if you are not a follower of Jesus.

How does one discover who is right? Everyone does have an opinion and we can’t all be right. Can we? No, we can’t all be right! For the average person, it doesn’t help to see Christians screaming at each other! How does such behavior honor God or further His Kingdome?

I would like to offer some suggestions that may be of help to you. You don’t have to be afraid of the raging storms that frequent the Internet.
