Bayesian probability and the Monty Hall problem

On a rare slow Friday, I found myself in a musing of the Monty Hall problem. You know the famous brainteaser, a probability puzzle in which you are a player in the game of guessing in order to win a prize. There are three doors closed, and behind each door is either a goat or a car, and whatever you have picked will be the prize for you. Of course, you want the car, not… Read More »Bayesian probability and the Monty Hall problem


Ecclesiastes is a very peculiar book in the Bible. Some more sensitive Christians may even feel a little awkward reading Ecclesiastes due to its apparent pessimism and negativity. The reason for this feeling is often because we do not realize that God’s revelation has a historical order, a hierarchy, and a structure. If we mistakenly think of the whole Bible as a series of flat, side-by-side books, thinking that these volumes present independent, parallel lessons… Read More »Ecclesiastes


Jesus was crucified, died, and was buried. After the Lord’s death, his body would remain for only three days, after which he would rise again, but God the Father still carefully arranged the burial of His Son so that he would be buried in a new tomb purchased in advance by a rich man. Jesus would take a new spiritual body after his resurrection and ascend to heaven after witnessing on earth for nearly 40… Read More »Resurrection


That night of the Last Supper, Jesus was sold, went through a sequence of swift trials and was condemned to death on the cross. Faced with death, Jesus himself said that the time had come for the Son to glorify the Father (John 17:1). The Lord knew what was going to happen and knew what it all meant. Concerning the death of the Lord: The disciples said, “You must not die.” (But they did not… Read More »Crucifixion


After the Last Supper, Jesus entered the final temptation he had to face, Gethsemane. Death was ahead, and Jesus had to pass through it. It was the necessary way to establish a new relationship between God and man. The trial that the Lord passed through in the face of death is definitely not the test of death that we usually imagine. Countless people have died in this world, and many have even shown fearlessness in… Read More »Gethsemane

The Last Supper and the death of Jesus

On the 10th day of the first month of the Jewish calendar, Jesus entered into Jerusalem, as the Lamb of God needed to be selected and examined, according to the Old Testament (Exodus 12:3), for the sacrifice made on the 14th day of the month (Exodus 12:6). The importance of this last week of time Jesus spent on earth with his disciples before he was betrayed and crucified surpasses the rest of all human history… Read More »The Last Supper and the death of Jesus

The Internet is a test

Allan Milne Lees’ article Why The Internet Is Destroying Civilization is an interesting read. Written by a talented and insightful writer, but tinted with a bias. The Internet is infested by not only lies that are designed to induce fear and prurience (which are highlighted by the author in the article), but all kinds of lies, including that are designed to induce false hopes or to work as deceitful sedation (which are neglected in the… Read More »The Internet is a test

Isaac Newton on the end times and Revelation

Isaac Newton, the greatest scientist the world has known, spent more time studying the Bible than science, and left voluminous writings. Few know this, and even fewer have actually paid any attention to what Newton wrote about Bible and his faith. I have long heard of Newton’s so-called “religious writings” but never was interested in reading any of them because I had assumed that Newton, being such an extremely smart “science man”, must have approached… Read More »Isaac Newton on the end times and Revelation

Adam, Man, Woman

In the English language, the word ‘man’ in certain general context refers to ‘mankind’, representing both male and female. In other words, at a high abstract level, ‘Man’ includes both man and woman. Only when we understand God’s plan and creation of Adam, man and woman, can we appreciate the spiritual significance of this representation and relationship without secular sexism. “And God said, Let us make Adam,” (Genesis 1:26) “And God created Adam in His image,… Read More »Adam, Man, Woman

The Lord’s body that is broken

“And while they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, Take and eat; this is my body.” Matthew 26:26. All moving beings on the earth need to eat and need food. And it was not a need that came after Adam’s sin and fall. When Adam was first created, God prepared food for him. “And the LORD God caused every tree to grow out… Read More »The Lord’s body that is broken
