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 a filthy, sinful human being with a constant need for a savior and I have one in Jesus Christ, thanks be to Him.

I come from a family of six generation of Anglicans. To quote Moses' prayer from Psalm 90  , God has been our hiding place for all generations. God chooses deliberately, purposefully, the weak things of the world to confound the strong, as Alistair Begg preaches. This is seen throughout the Scripture but also rings true in my family history. God's been gracious to bring servants for Him from our family, all six generations of it's known existence. That said, my nuclear family isn't Anglican - more on that later.  It's only because of God's grace have we've survived history, especially that of my nation.Now that I've shared murky details of my origins with my audience, I think it's time to start blogging.

Remembering Charles R. A. Hoole

Seventeen years ago today, Charles Ratnamuktan Alban Hoole, known affectionately by many as Charles/ Muktan, met face to face with His Saviour Lord Jesus Christ. Life of Charles Hoole Charles/Muktan was born on the 18th of March 1951. He was the second son of Rev. Richard Hoole and Jeevamany Somasundaram of the Anglican Church in Ceylon. He was educated at St. John’s College in Jaffna, where he became notorious for his towering sixers as a young cricketer. Charles completed his B.A (Hons), and M.A at the University of Hull in Yorkshire, UK, after which he moved to the Department of Religious Studies in McMaster University in Canada for his M.A and Ph.D.   Marriage to Jaqui Charles met his wife Jacqueline Patricia Guiver during his time at the University of Hull Christian Union (CU) in the late 1970s, where Jaqui was serving as the Overseas Representative. Charles later became a Theological Students’ Rep in the CU where he brought along many overseas friends to hear the good news of Jes

The Disciple Whom Jesus Loves

Sanctification often times feels like dying. Dying, because the old man is in fact being put to death by the Spirit. Part of growing in holiness is mortification. A grace-induced mortification of the flesh. Deep within my regenerate soul is the cunning old man, cowering as he is dealt lethal blows. This is a gracious work of the Holy Spirit. While it feels like God is killing me, He is actually saving me. The resulting pain is a reminder of the love of God. For in love, He set me apart to be holy and blameless like Him. He is actively working in my life to restore in me the 'Imago Dei' - the image of God that was marred by Adam’s sin and mine. The life I now in the flesh I live by faith in Jesus Christ, who loved me gave Himself for me. I am the disciple whom Jesus loved. He set his affection on me before the ages began - not because I am worthy, but precisely because I am unworthy. His love for me is from everlasting to everlasting. His love awakened me from the rotten de

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
