(Enlightenment—Passage of the Day)

Q.) WHERE DOES GOD WANT TO DWELL HERE ON THE EARTH, THE TEMPLE MADE BY THE HANDS OF MAN, OR THE TEMPLE MADE BY THE VERY HANDS OF GOD?

A.) “HOWBEIT THE MOST HIGH DWELLETH NOT IN TEMPLES MADE WITH HANDS; AS SAITH THE PROPHET.” (Acts7:48); “DESTROY THIS TEMPLE, AND IN THREE DAYS I WILL RAISE IT UP.”(John2:19) Jesus in this verse is referring to His body. Email: jayfeliciano2@yahoo.com

The AFP/PNP top guns in Basilan have already arrested a suspect in the July 31 bombing in Brgy. Colonia, Basilan Province. Based on the reports published by local and national dailies, the suspect now in the custody of the authorities, was identified as a certain Ustadz Indalin Jainul y Mallaling aka Abdulgani58, married, a teacher of the madrasah school in Tinambakan, Brgy. Maganda, Lamitan City. The arresting operatives seized from him a fragmentation grenade when nabbed. Multiple murder charges were readied against him upon his arrest, reports added.

The military still dismissed earlier reports that the huge blast was carried out by a lone suicide bomber whose van resulted to a total wreck when a powerful improvised bomb went off near an army checkpoint while its security forces made up of Cafgus flagged it down for inspection purposes. As a consequence, 11 people--to include five(5) Cafgus, one (1) army soldier and six(6) innocent civilians--were killed. Scores were injured in the same blast, the military added.

IF the authorities succeeded to exact the truth from their ongoing probe with the arrested suspect now in their custody, this will eventually bare all whether last Tuesday morning’s bomb explosion was a case of a suicide bombing or not. For if indeed it was carried out by a suicide bomber, then and only then we can finally confirm that here in Southern Philippines the terrorists are getting bolder and bolder, and our AFP/PNP should better watch out for its next to most likely come. That means the fear that our AFP/PNP had in the past about foreign terrorists coming over here in Mindanao via the backdoor to train local recruits for a suicide bombing mission, is now literally being felt. In the past while Pencing was covering then Southcom (now Wesmincom), our top military officials were casting strong doubts if ever Filipinos engaged in terroristic activities like the Abu Sayyafs, had the nerve to become suicide bomber one day. I remember a top Southcom official then telling this corner, “Jun, I don’t believe Filipino terrorists, like our Abu Sayyafs will ever attempt to become suicide bombers. Their conscience tells them that it’s un-Islamic or contrary to Allah’s.”

Now, if this top Southcom official then were still alive today, he’d eat his own words, if proven later on it was indeed a case of a suicide bombing mission. Let’s just cross our fingers it was never even nigh such case, at all. For if truly it was, then let’s brace for the worse to come. Again, this corner begs to all fellow mortals, to address the peace and security problem of our own homeland, and the whole world for that matter, on its spiritual perspective, and not just physical. The problem of this world is more spiritual, and therefore, its only solution is spiritual, as well.

This is the only real way out to put to a stop once and for all, all these senseless and barbaric killings and slaughtering of people by their own fellow humankind. This is, as I said, the only way out, period. (By Jun Feliciano)  (30)
