Martial law should be in whole RP, indefinitely

PDFPrintE-mail

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… But if there is serious injury, you are to take life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,  burn for burn, wound for wound, bruise for bruise…” (Exodus 21:24, the Holy Bible).

-ooo-

MARTIAL LAW SHOULD BE IN THE WHOLE OF RP, INDEFINITELY:If the truth be told, in consideration of the continuing grave and dire problems involving drugs, terrorism, rebellion, invasion, and criminality hounding the country today, there is a need not only to extend martial law in Mindanao for the next five years that President Duterte will still be in office, but to extend it indefinitely until these problems are solved or greatly lessened.

In fact, in view of the widespread reach of all of these problems at present where they are causing imminent and actual danger almost everywhere, martial law is needed not only in Mindanao, but in the whole country as well. The objective is to crush all forces that are seeking to destroy all of us ruthlessly and fiercely, in the same way that all of their actions are ruthlessly and fiercely killing all of us.

This is now the moment where we have to consciously and deliberately exact an “eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth”, as it were, for criminals, drug syndicates,  rapists, and corrupt personalities no longer care if the crimes and violence they commit, the drugs they sell or peddle, and the billions in government fund they steal, have been tearing the Republic apart, and literally feeding the people to the dogs.

-ooo-

THE CURSE OF LEADERS WHO ARE CORRUPT: Time and again I always say that it has already been recorded somewhere that a sinful and rebellious people will be afflicted not only with defeat and failures, with debilitating diseases and ailments and unbearable natural and even man-made calamities, with foreigners sapping their country’s wealth, but, listen to this, also with leaders who are themselves rebels and partners with thieves.

The prediction was that, a nation whose people do not recognize nor thank God, and who are mired in sin and evil deeds and who have forsaken the Lord, incapable of dispensing justice or unwilling to do what is right, will experience the full wrath of God, as well as the curses He had promised to those who no longer listen to Him and who no longer obey His commands.

One of these curses are leaders who love bribes and chase after gifts, and who do not defend the cause of the fatherless or of widows, and who have no desire or willingness to rescue their people from the corruption among those who govern, whether from the administration or the opposition.

-ooo-

FILIPINOS MUST LEAD SPIRITUALLY-GUIDED LIVES: The only way, therefore, to enable God-fearing and God-loving leaders to be he ones to lead the Philippines is for Filipinos to make a turn-around themselves, and jointly strive to lead a truly righteous and spiritually-guided life, anchored on a sustained reading of His Word, the Bible, and daily obedience to His commands, until these spiritual exercises shall have become a habit in their lives.

There must be a deliberate and conscious effort on the part of all Christian churches, sects, organizations and groupings, to impart Biblical principles to their members through a regular Bible study on top of the Bible readings during masses, or praise and worship services, and to set up a mechanism by which spiritual growth could be measured in terms of everyday behavior.

It is not going to be easy doing this, for man is naturally sinful and rebellious and forgetful of God. There are also going to be a lot of obstacles, even from among the churches themselves, especially among those who do not allow their members to read the Bible. But this is no reason not to try, for if we fail, there is literally hell to pay for all of us.

-ooo-
