These three events were held last saturday, the 26th of January. The event started at approximately 3.30pm in the afternoon. First off the YCF, Daryl song led for the first time. =P
Then Chiang Ling shared a lesson on "What it is to be a Christian". A lesson pertaining to Christian Living and what attributes we should pick up to live faithfully as God intended.
There were about 30 Youths present. A great attendance i must say. Plus, many visitors.

Charles From China
Ern Shern's friend Kok Yew(sorry if i spelt it wrong)
Geoh Soon from DU!Ong Jae Wen
The lesson ended at about 5pm and then came the Youth Activities.
Bro. Tze Wei officially organised the first ever YouthActivities(YA) with...BOARD GAMES!
There was; chess;checkers;risk;jenga;uno;pictionary;taboo!
Most kept occupied with taboo and jenga while a minority played chess and others. =D
After all the fun we had worked up an appetite and it was time for the quarterly dinner. STEAMBOAT!
We started the dinner at about 7pm and it lasted up till 9pm. The food was scrumptious and it was safe to say that no one left un-bloated. =P Credits to Sze Yin and others for supplying the food and utilities. =)
Some of us couldn't wait for the food to be cooked
Example A;
Example B;

But for those who could wait...

Half way through dinner the electricity tripped! Someone was toying with the wrong switch. =D
Lucky for us Unc.Eng Boon was there to save us! =P
Some still managed to keep on cooking through the blackout. While other more modern ELECTRICAL stoves where out cold, the good old fashion gas stove went on unaffected.

After the dinner, we cleaned up the place while Randall played ratatouille on the projector for everyone to watch.
We adjourned from the fellowship at about 10pm bloated, tired and with huge smiles on our faces!
Till Next Month!

Owh ya...on a lighter note, did u know that Ern Shern's friend doubles as a clown?! Okay, maybe not a clown, an entertainer! Check it out!

Last Sunday we invited a guest psychologist, John Tan to hold a class on the topic of Grief.

Little did we know that we were in for a 2 hour long lecture on the theory of bereavement. The class started off a bit dull as the audience was not so keen on learning the theory but rather were much more interested in the practical aspect of the subject. The second hour of the class was leaning more towards the practical side and caught more attention. He called it the "Healing Session". =D

The turn out was fantastic as most of the youths, or as he called us adolescence, were present as well as a good number of adults.

Interesting Read

Science vs. God

"Let me explain the problem science has with Jesus Christ." The
atheist professor of philosophy pauses before his class and then asks one of
his new students to stand.

"You're a Christian, aren't you, son?"

"Yes sir," the student says.

"So you believe in God?"


"Is God good?"

"Sure! God's good."

"Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?"


"Are you good or evil?"

"The Bible says I'm evil."

The professor grins knowingly. "Aha! The Bible!" He considers for a moment.

"Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can
cure him. You can do it. Would you help him. Would you try?"

"Yes sir, I would."

"So you're good...!"

"I wouldn't say that."

"But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most
of us would if we could. But God doesn't."

The student does not answer, so the professor continues. "He doesn't,does
My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus
to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Hmmm? Can you answer that one?"

The student remains silent.

"No, you can't, can you?" the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a
glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.

"Let's start again, young fella Is God good?"

"Er...yes," the student says.

"Is Satan good?"

The student doesn't hesitate on this one. "No."

"Then where does Satan come from?"

The student : "From...God..."

"That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this

"Yes, sir."

"Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?"


"So who created evil?" The professor continued, "If God created everything,
then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that
our works define who we are, then God is evil."

Without allowing the student to answer, the professor continues: "Is there
sickness, Immorality, Hatred, Ugliness, All these terrible things,do they
exist in this world?"

The student: "Yes."

"So who created them?"

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question.
"Who created them? There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks
away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized.

"Tell me," he continues onto another student. "Do you believe in Jesus
Christ, son?"

The student's voice is confident: "Yes, professor, I do."

The old man stops pacing. "Science says you have five senses you use to
identify and observe the world around you.

Have you ever seen Jesus?"

"No sir. I've never seen Him"

"Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?"

"No, sir, I have not."

"Have you ever actually felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your
Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that

"No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't."

"Yet you still believe in him?"


"According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol,science
says your God doesn't exist.

What do you say to that, son?"

"Nothing," the student replies. "I only have my faith."

"Yes, faith," the professor repeats. "And that is the problem science has
with God. There is no evidence, only faith."

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of his

"Professor, is there such thing as heat?"

"Yes," the professor replies. "There's heat."

"And is there such a thing as cold?"

"Yes, son, there's cold too."

"No sir, there isn't."

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room
suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain.

"You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited
heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called
'cold'. We can hit up to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we
can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we
would be able to go colder than the lowest -458 degrees.

Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy,
and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute
zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word
we use to describe the
absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units
because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the
absence of it."

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding
like a hammer.

"What about darkness, professor. Is there such a thing as darkness?"

"Yes," the professor replies without hesitation. "What is night if it isn't

"You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of
something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing
light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called
darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word. In reality,
darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker,
wouldn't you?"

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a
good semester. "So what point are you making, young man?"

"Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start
with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed."
The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. "Flawed? Can
you explain how?"

"You are working on the premise of duality," the student explains. "You
argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God.
You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can

Sir, science can't even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism,
but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as
the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as
a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of

"Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a
"If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of
course I do"
"Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?"
The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where
the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

"Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot
even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching
your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?"

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has
"To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me
give you an example of what I mean."

The student looks around the room. "Is there anyone in the class who has ever
seen the professor's brain?" The class breaks out into laughter.
"Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt
the professor's brain, touched or smelled the professor's brain? No one
appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical,
stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all
due respect, sir. So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your
lectures, sir?"

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face
unreadable. Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. "I
guess?you'll have to take them on faith."

"Now, you accept that there is faith, and, in fact, faith exists with life,"
the student continues. "Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?"

Now uncertain, the professor responds, "Of course, there is. We see it
It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude
of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are
nothing else but evil."

To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does
not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like
darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of

God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not
have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when
there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light."

The professor sat down.
