Q. ) WHY GOD WANTS US TO LOVE EVEN OUR ENEMIES?

A. BECAUSE THEY’RE ALSO HUMAN BEINGS MADE UNTO HIS VERY IMAGE, AS WELL. SO, HOW DO WE LOVE OUR ENEMIES? LISTEN TO THIS: “ BUT I SAY UNTO YOU, LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU, DO GOOD UNTO THEM THAT HATE YOU, AND PRAY FOR THEM WHICH DESPITEFULLY USE YOU, AND PERSECUTE YOU.” (MATTHEW 5:44).

DOT Sec. Wanda Tulfo Teo has been told to resign by no less PRRD, amid the hullabaloo that has something to do with the highly-contentious corruption issue lodged vs. the Tulfo brothers, Teo’s two siblings who’re known as the country’s fearless TV hosts in one of the country’s top-rated TV talk shows, “Kilos Pronto” aired over the state-owned television network (PTV-4). It’s all about that such a huge sum of people’s money amounting to P60 million poured as  ads on the Tulfo brothers’ widely-viewed TV talk show which was flagged by COA itself as surreptitiously forged into, for the mere fact that DOT Secretary Wanda TulfoTeo is their very own sister, hence, they were chastised by critics to have gone beyond board. Others more sympathetic to the Tulfos claimed that Teo out of delicadeza, tendered irrevocably her resignation. But, those out to denigrate them, saw it differently, “It was Pres. Duterte himself telling her to resign amid the brewing controversy that’s not doing any good to his present administration.”

Whatever, the Tulfos have been drawing downright piques and indignations from all corners of their bitter archrivals in the media industry, as if portraying them the subjectof a harsh verse in the Holy Bible that says, “THOU HYPOCRITE, FIRST CAST OUT THE BEAM OUT OF THINE OWN EYE; AND THEN SHALT THOU SEE CLEARLY TO CAST OUT THE MOTE OUT OF THY BROTHER’S EYE.” (Matthew7: 5)

This very particular passage in the Holy Scriptures is not only aimed at the Tulfos, but to all having the spirit of the hypocrites. To further their such portrayal, here’s a more severe passage in the Holy Bible, “BEWARE OF THOSE WHICH COME TO YOU IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY, THEY ARE RAVENING WOLVES.” (Matthew 7:15). Let’s add all the more, “WOE UNTO YOU, SCRIBES AND PHARISEES, HYPOCRITES!  FOR YE ARE LIKE UNTO WHITED SEPULCHRES, WHICH INDEED APPEAR BEAUTIFUL OUTWARD, BUT ARE WITHIN FULL OF DEAD MEN’S BONES AND OF ALL UNCLEANLINESS.” (Matthew23: 27). See how hypocritical we are in the sight of God? And, last but not the least, what does the Word of God say all the more? “JUDGE NOT, THAT YE BE NOT JUDGED. FOR WHICH WHAT JUDGMENT YE JUDGE, YE SHALL BE JUDGED: AND WITH WHAT MEASURE YE METE, IT SHALL BE MEASURED TO YOU AGAIN.” (Matthew 7:1). (By Jun Feliciano) -30-
