‘You shall utterly destroy all the places where the nations which you shall dispossess served their gods, on the high mountains and on the hills and under every green tree. And you shall destroy their altars, break their sacred pillars, and burn their wooden images with fire; you shall cut down the carved images of their gods and destroy their names from that place. You shall not worship the Lord your God with such things. “But you shall seek the place where the Lord your God chooses, out of all your tribes, to put His name for His dwelling place; and there you shall go. ‘ Deuteronomy 12:2-5

It’s quite unnatural for us who grew up in church to talk about destroying things. What more destroying EVERYTHING. The Israelites we commanded to destroy everything in the land they are about to conquer, because God knew that the Israelites were weak and easily tempted to serve other gods. And serving other gods is a direct sin!

Today as Christians, we don’t take temptation and sin very seriously. We think it’s just something we need to AVOID. But no, we need to find a deep hatred towards sin. Because sin is DEFYING God ON PURPOSE. In a culture full of sin, we are also tempted to see sin as not very serious. ‘If it doesn’t hurt anyone, how is it a sin?’ right? WRONG. That’s not how God sees it at all.

God wants us to face our sins and overcome it. Overcome sin the way you overcome an enemy in a war. You must show no mercy. And even though temptation itself is not a sin, we should not allow temptation to stick around as well. The bible says that if your eye causes you to sin, you should gauge it out. Wow imagery.

This sermon by Moses in Deuteronomy 12:2-5 reminds me of a powerful sermon by John Piper. Hope it motivates you to war against sin and your carnal self.

Infinity Is Bigger Than You Think

Numberphile is awesome. But this video really gave me such an insight of how infinite our infinite God is.

For the nerdy bunch. This is a super interesting video. For the un-nerdy bunch. This is also a super interesting video.


For those who aren’t gonna bother watching the video. Well, let me give you a summary. Dr James Grime, a Cambridge university lecturer, is telling us that infinity isn’t just bigger than the biggest number that we can imagine. Infinity is also there in the small numbers. And in the negative numbers. And in between everything. For example, he drew a line, marked 0 and marked 1. In between those numbers, there are 0.5 (a half), 0.25 (a quarter), 0.2214 (any random number), and on and on. Then he proposed that it’s not possible to list down all the numbers in between 0 and 1. Not Possible?? Honestly, I would’ve thought that, to list numbers from 0 – 1 I just had to write 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4… then 0.11, 0.12, 0.13… and so on. And all I have to do is be hardworking to work it out. Well, according to Dr Grime, Georg Cantor, a very dead mathematician, found that no matter how many numbers you’ve listed, anyone could make a NEW number that was not listed. It’s an infinity. Because it’s not possible to end listing numbers in between 0 through 1. There are an infinity of numbers in between 0 and 1. Oh my goodness. What the heck just happened to my brain?

So, how many numbers are there in between 0 through 1?

Is God possibly SO BIG and SO INFINITE that something God created, so small as 0 – 1, is INFINITY to us?


God, am I finally scraping the tip of the iceberg with my spoon on finding out how BIG you actually are? How vast your hold. How deep your understanding. How great your glory. Lord, I want to understand, how wide is east to west for You? Lord, how long is a second? Lord, how much thought have you put into creating us?

Lord, how great is Your love?

If ONE little tiny puny piece of love from You can only be understood as infinity to us, how can we possibly understand how deep, how high, how wide, how strong, how thick, how real, how crushing, how painful, how boundless, how timeless, and how great Your LOVE is for us?


My heart is longing

My head hurts
