A new age, a new era.

Happy Birthday to me! Yes, today is my brithday ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 20 today. Thank you all for sending me your greetings and wishes. I feel truly blessed to have such amazing friends and an equally amazing family, both old and new. It’s great to share life with you all, and it’s great to know you all. I love you!

As I enter this new age, I’ve decided to make it a landmark of exploring more of life, to explore deeper my calling into full time ministry within the Anglican Church and to do my part in making a more of a Christian difference in the world. It’s a time of development, change and opportunity. I’m committed to making the most of the time that I have on this earth.

The world says to live as though it’s your last day on earth. Theodore Epp says,

Live as though Christ died yesterday, rose from the grave today, and is coming back tomorrow

That’s exactly what I’m going to do. A year of fun awaits me. And I can’t wait to journey with you all. I’m determined to be expectant of the Spirit and all he is going to do, and I’m willing to surrender myself more to the work of his hands.

So, if you want to get in touch, if you want to see me, I want to try my best to accomodate that!

Thank you to you all… and thank you to Jesus, my Saviour, my Redeemer, my Lord and my King for being so faithful these past 20 years. Glory be to him.

    Happy late birthday!!
    I just thought I’d tell you privately on here that I have nothing against religion. Honestly, all I’m trying to do is have a laugh, everyone needs a bit of fun, it can’t be all serious. There’s nothing offensive in what I’ve written, or not intentionally. (Just so you know, the poem took me ages).
    But in all seriousness, I do religious education at A-Level. In actual fact, I’ve just recently done the exam, in case you wanted to know :).
    I think I did OK, I mean there was one question I got a bit stumped on:
    ‘What happens to Christians on the day of judgement?’‘.
    So you know me, Mike ‘never leaves a question out’ Hunt, I had to have an intelligent guess, I may pick up a few marks for my response; ‘They feel very disappointed‘.

    • Mike, I’m sorry but this blog is read by over 400 people a day now, in over 74 countries who want a serious discussion or debate. Many of these people are atheists/agnostics or people of other faiths, and many are Christians. Of those who are Christians, a lot of them live in persecuted countries where they may be killed for believing in Jesus. Coming on this site is a HUGE risk to them. It’s therefore my intention to provide good content, encouraging posts, and news on current affairs from a Christian perspective that they will never receive in their home countries.
      I think you do these people a massive disrespect when you spam the site making jokes which can be offensive to some Christians, and when you constantly comment the blog using fake names and email addresses.
      I have no problem whatsoever with you commenting and sharing opinions. But there is a correct way to do this, and there is right way going about debating.
      I hope you understand this, and have enough decency to stop spamming, and start contributing in a positive way.

        I’ve just read this. And I’m sorry because I didn’t realise. I am actually a religious person so obviously didn’t mean any disrespect at all, I honestly was just trying to lighten the mood on serious topics, but I’ll do it in a less immature way. I just think humour is important and having a laugh can improve a persons day.
        But I understand where you are coming from. And well done on creating a site that reaches out to so many people.
