Repost: 2013 candidates’
agenda for God

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth. All these blessings will come on you and accompany you if you obey the Lord your God…” (Deuteronomy 28:1-2, the Holy Bible).

-ooo-

DO 2013 CANDIDATES HAVE AN AGENDA FOR GOD? One thing Filipinos should watch out for among the candidates in the May 2013 elections is this: do they have any agenda for God? In other words, is there any candidate who spells out how God will figure in the discharge of his duties and responsibilities if he wins?

This is important. For a long time now, virtually all candidates who ran for public office and ultimately won did not have any platform about God’s role in their governance, on in the performance of their functions. This explains why almost all of them failed to push our country and people to real development.

Their agenda was 100 percent focused on their own self-interest, on what they will get from the offices they aspired for and subsequently occupied or took over. With this kind of an agenda, it wasn’t really difficult for them to steal, abuse, and to treat their positions as family heirlooms that could be passed on to their spouses, their children, their siblings and their family members.

-ooo-

CANDIDATES FOR 2013 POLLS MUST FEAR AND LOVE GOD: When we say a candidate must have an agenda for God, what exactly do we mean? What I mean is that a candidate must be someone who is a known believer in God, whatever name he calls his God—God, Allah, Jehovah or Yahweh.

And by believer we mean not simply believing that there is God, for according to the Christian Bible in its James 2:19, even the devil believes there is God and he shudders in doing so. What I mean is that the candidate must have real fear and love of God in his heart—fear because he knows God can punish him with his misdeeds and wrongdoings both here and in the life eternal.

Love because the candidate knows that he came to this world out of the generosity and love and purpose of God, and that he is receiving blessings in his life because of God’s abiding love for him.

-ooo-

GOD-FEARING AND LOVING CANDIDATES WILL NOT STEAL OR ABUSE: This kind of a candidate will not steal, abuse and treat his position as part of the inheritance he will bequeath to his love ones after his term or his life is over. He will treat his position as a matter of trust and privilege coming from God, for His purpose and predestination of men.

This kind of a candidate will obey God’s commands for a leader and an official, designed to ensure obedience, praise, worship and thanksgiving to God, and to uplift the lives of the people who have been mandated to be loved by the candidate as  he loves himself.

This kind of a candidate will even make sure that his constituents, despite their diverse faiths, will aspire to be similarly-God fearing, and God loving, similarly obedient to His commands, knowing fully well that success and prosperity are not really the by-products of human intelligence or expertise but of God’s love and beneficence to those who listen to Him and obey His commands.

-ooo-
