(BY: ATTY. BATAS MAURICIO) LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The Lord says: `These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me’…” (Isaiah 29:13, Matthew 15:8, the Holy Bible).
WHAT ANIMAL REPRESENTS 2015 IN THE CHINESE NEW YEAR?What animal are the Chinese celebrating this 2015? I ask this because of conflicting media advertisements coming from wealthy Filipino-Chinese businessmen on February 19, 2015. One businessman noted for his supermalls says it is the year of the goat, while another businessman associated with banking says it is the year of the sheep. Which is which?
NEW YEAR PRACTICES AND BIBLICAL TRUTH:It is amusing how Filipinos and Chinese are celebrating the Chinese New Year in terms of feng shui advices and predictions of things that are to happen in every new year. The fact is that, Filipinos and the Filipino-Chinese are now sporting the Christian faith, which prohibits divination or fortune-telling (see Deuteronomy 18:10 of the Bible), and which demands complete submission to God.
It is amazing that while Filipinos and the Filipino-Chinese profess Christianity as their faith, they nevertheless hold on to practices and traditions that are completely un-Christian, or diametrically opposed or violative of Christian teachings. Indeed, these are the people who “honor (God) with their lips, but their hearts are far from (God)”, as Isaiah 29:13 and Matthew 15:8 jointly condemn.
There is a great penalty from God for this spurious faith, and it is found in Deuteronomy 18:15 which says, in so many words: if we no longer listen to God, and no longer obey His commands, He will afflict us His curses until we all perish. Well, may God have mercy on all of us!
MORE INFO DISCLOSED ON WHO IS LIABLE FOR MURDER OF SAF 44:As the days are passing by since January 25, 2015, the day that 44 officers and men of the Special Action Force were slaughtered and murdered by the Moro Islamic Liberation Front and the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters, it is becoming increasingly clear that there was no other official who should be blamed for this deadly operation to kill terrorist Zulkifli bin Hir or Marwan.
From bits and pieces of information that are now surfacing from many quarters, it is clear that the Mamasapano, Maguindanao SAF operation involved big contingents—392 or so police officers and men in all—from the Philippine National Police, which only a very high official—higher than excluded OIC PNP chief Gen. Leonardo Espina and Secretary Mar Roxas—can mobilize.
It would also appear that at the time the SAF officers and men were being mercilessly killed by the enemy, the entire carnage was being seen by top government officials who were gathered in Zamboanga City upon the instruction of the highest officer of the country, through cameras installed in a drone (or unidentified flying object) owned by the US and which flew right on top of the battlefield where the fighting raged.
WHO STOPPED SAF 300 FROM HELPING SAF FALLEN 44?Then, as clear as the rays of sunshine coming through the mist of the dawn while the night is dissipating on January 25, 2015 is the truth that the 300 or so colleagues of the fallen SAF commandos failed or refused to help them at the time they were already shouting for help from their superiors.
One Army soldier interviewed by media claimed that these 300 SAF elements could have saved the 44, yet they were found simply lying on the road which was just a stone’s throw away from the farm where they were being sniped at. This refusal to act on the part of the 300 is now being attributed to an order from a very high official not to help the fallen 44 so as not to jeopardize the peace process with the MILF.
