A theology of heroism and martyrdom

“The thief comes only in order to steal, kill, and destroy.  I have come in order that you might have life – life in all its fullness.” – John 10:10

A Theology of Non-conformity

“…Offer yourselves as a living sacrifice to God, dedicated to his service and pleasing to him.  This is the true worship that you should offer.  Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind.  Then you will be able to know the will of God – what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.” – Romans 12:1-2

A Theology of Power

“Sell all you have and give the money to the poor, and you will have riches in heaven; then come and follow me.” – Luke 18:22

A Theology of Creation

“Why have you done this terrible thing?  Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground, like a voice calling for justice.   You are placed under a curse and can no longer farm the soil.  The soil has soaked up your brother’s blood as if it had opened its mouth to receive it when you killed him.  If you try to grow crops, the soil will not produce anything; you will be a homeless wanderer on earth” – Gen.4:10-12

A message for OFWs

“Don’t imagine that you are safer than any other Jew just because you are in the royal palace. If you keep quiet at a time like this, help will come from heaven to the Jews, and they will be saved, but you will die and your father’s family will come to an end. Yet who knows—maybe it was for a time like this that you were made queen!” -Esther 4:13-14

A theology of witnessing

“When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you will be filled with power and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem, in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth” – Acts 1:8
