Go, go, Pacquiao,
fight for Godís glory!
LIFEíS INSPIRATIONS: ìÖ`I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothingíÖî (Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in John 15:5, the Holy Bible).
GO, GO, GO PACQUIAO, FIGHT FOR GODíS GLORY: Can a Bible-preaching Christian like Filipino boxing champion Manny Pacquiao remain true to his Christian faith while pursuing a violent and concededly-anti-Christian sports like boxing, where he must physically beat up and punish his opponentóand, perhaps, kill him, tooóto be able to win?
Many will say no, Pacquiao cannot be a Christian and a killer-boxer at the same time. As for me though, I believe, based on the Bible itself, that he can. For the admonition to Christians everywhere, in 1 Corinthians 10:31, is this: whatever we do, we must do it for the glory of God.
In Colossians 3:17, we are also told: ìÖ And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through himÖî Others may disagree with this, but then, that is my belief! So, in his upcoming title fight with Brandon ìBam Bamî Rios in Macau, China, I say, go, go, go Manny, fight for the glory of God!
USE THE BIBLE TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING, CLIMATE CHANGE: Yes, Dean Tony La Vina of the Ateneo School of Government, it is true that the best thing that organizations and movements representing people from every part of the world is to walk away from the Warsaw Climate Change negotiations, because, as we have been repeatedly saying here, climate change conferences are inutile and useless because they are not taking into account the spiritual aspect of global warming and climate change.
Every man and woman in this planet must understandóreal soon, if I may say soóthat global warming and climate change were predicted to happen in the Bible as early as Mosesí time, as written in its Deuteronomy 28:15, 22-23. It is important to factor in this Biblical warning about climate change, if we are to find a solution to it, because the same warning contains what man must do to fight environmental destruction.
If man continues to ignore the Biblical basis of global warming and climate change, he would never be able to find a cure, so that death and destruction arising from natural calamities will continue, at an increasingly staggering number and cost.
SB 13 MANILA CONFERENCE MAYBE USELESS, TOO: The same thing is true with the SB13 Manila Conference slated to be held on November 25-27, 2013, at the Eastwood Richmonde Hotel in Quezon City, which is aimed at bringing together some 250 experts from around the world to talk about ìgreen building practices for better disaster preparedness.î If Godís Word is not given a part in that conference, it will also be useless and just a waste of time and money.
ENRILE, ET. AL. MUST ANSWER RAPS EARLY: If it is true that Senate Minority Leader Juan Ponce Enrile, Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Ramon Revilla Jr., and Janet Lim Napoles are already being required by the Ombudsman to answer the pork barrel charges against them, they should answer with dispatch so they can clear their names right away. Delaying the case will only destroy their standing as political leaders all the more.
UN ëSLAPSí RP TELCOS: I donít know about you but, as far as I am concerned, the efforts of the United Nations through its International Telecommunications Union to donate more satellite phones for use in areas hit by Yolanda appear to me to be a slap-in-the-face of local cellular phone companies. Why? Well, we have just been shown that cellphone providers in the Philippines are incapable of continuing with their service in times of emergency.
