Killing My Victory

I just realised only recently, that I have been singing David Crowder's recent song 'My Victory' all wrong. It's a beautiful song put together by Darren Mulligan, Ed Cash and David Crowder himself. The lyrics of the song juxtaposes the beautiful ironies of the cross: A Holy Sacrifice - for the Unholy Mankind The Symbol of Death, - Giving Life to those who Believe The Death and Resurrection of Christ, - ultimately Defeating Hell and Death  If you aren’t allergic to contemporary folktronica, I recommend that you listen to it. Due to my hearing difficulties as an aging individual, I have been singing the last line of the chorus as "What the cross meant to kill is my victory” as opposed to "A cross meant to kill is my victory". There are glaring differences between my deafened version (no bloating intended) and that of Crowder's but both carry important truths about Christ's ultimate atonement for mankind.  Growing

Donald Trump and the Clanging Cymbals

I woke up Wednesday morning after 3 long hours of sleep to a variety of messages on social media. I noticed heavy mourning among some voters and also came across a barrage of celebratory posts from some friends. However, I was caught by surprise when I came across posts that read along the lines of "We (Christians) won", "Lock her up", "Thank you Jesus", "Revenge of the fallen", "Take that, Satan", etc. from fellow friends and believers. As a Christian, part of me rejoices in the fact that the election of Donald Trump will put a dent or a halt to the progressive agenda. I rejoice because I believe this Republican platform  pledged to focus on fighting issues like abortion, religious liberty (especially that of the persecuted church), political corruption, etc. But part of me also mourns this results because I feel a sense of decay in Christianity in America. I write this not because I intend to vilify the evangelical church of Ame

A Mighty Fortress

"America does everything better than any other country, including getting things wrong", said one of my favourite speakers. As the election day draws near, many of us are worried where the United States of America is heading both politically and spiritually. The rhetoric surrounding the major political parties and their campaigns have been full of malice and conceit from day one. Seeing the process of a presidential election in the U.S for the first time, first hand,  has made me somewhat vocal on social media. This has caused some of my friends wonder why, given the fact that I am Sri Lankan and am ineligible to vote in the U.S elections. I care because America, through God's providence, is a country that's given me second chances I wouldn't have had elsewhere. Believe it or not, I love America. I also believe that the presidential election here not only determines the future of the nation, but also the course of the rest of the world. The United States of Amer

Concerning Hobbits

Well, this isn't really concerning Hobbits nor am I trying to plagiarize the great Tolkien. This is merely my first attempt to start a blog in the year 2016 - Yes, I have had many blogs throughout the years but none of them really took flight. The purpose of this blog isn't to really take 'flight' but to actually share my personal walk with Christ and what I find useful as a newly born-again Christian. It is also fitting that I start this in the week of the 23rd in the month of October because a long long time ago, that's when life first started for me. I'm Moses Hoole. Ethnically, I am Sri Lankan . Professionally, I am a Design Release Engineer (Co-op) at a leading automotive manufacturing company in North America and the whole world. I'm also a student and always will be one. I'm a senior at arguably one of the most reputed universities known to the Automotive Industry in North America. However, all of this amounts to nothing because personally, I am
