LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… `everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash’...” (Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in Matthew 7:26-27, the Hoy Bible).
QUESTION FOR BAYAN & CBCP ON PORK SCAM: I have a question to Bayan and its allied organizations and to the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) as well: will their calls for protest and mass actions, and the holding of a day of atonement for corruption in the aftermath of the P10 billion pork barrel scam racking the country today, transform the corrupt and the grossly immoral among our officials in particular and our people in general?
No, they won’t. Many Filipinos, whether in or out of government, whether in or out of the private sector, will remain corrupt and immoral, and will continue to be so in the days to come. The reason is that, many Filipinos have become godless, and have strayed much too far away from God. Consequently, God’s grace and blessings, guidance and protection, are no longer with us as a people.
What we have now are God’s many curses, including the devilish curse of graft and corruption—all of which are now being experienced by millions and millions of us, and all of which curses will continue to hit us, and cripple us, and destroy us as a nation, blotting the Filipino race out from the face of the earth even before we can even realize what is happening.
CURSES IN REFUSING TO LISTEN TO GOD AND TO OBEY HIM: Before my critics and the rabid sympathizers of our present crop of leaders will start pounding on me because of what I have written here, let me hasten to add that these are not even my views. I am simply echoing, in layman’s language as it were, what the Bible is saying, and had predicted to happen to any nation or race which will no longer listen to His Word, and which will no longer obey Him.
Listen to what some of Deuteronomy 28:15 to 68 are saying: “However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come on you and overtake you…
“The Lord will send on you curses, confusion and rebuke in everything you put your hand to, until you are destroyed and come to sudden ruin because of the evil you have done in forsaking him. The Lord will plague you with diseases until he has destroyed you from the land you are entering to possess.
BEING ROBBED & PLUNDERED & OPPRESSED: “The Lord will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation, with scorching heat and drought, with blight and mildew, which will plague you until you perish. The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. The Lord will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed.
“He will cause you to be defeated before your enemies… day after day you will be oppressed and robbed, with no one to rescue you. Your sons and daughters will be given to another nation, and you will wear out your eyes watching for them day after day, powerless to lift a hand.
“The foreigners who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. They will lend to you, but you will not lend to them. They will be the head, but you will be the tail…. Because you did not serve the Lord your God joyfully and gladly in the time of prosperity, therefore in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the Lord sends against you….”
