Are you sure that as Filipinos, you really loved God? Assuming your answer is  ‘yes’ but asked again with the same question, will you say ‘yes’? How about asking you for the third time, will your answer be the same?

The Sky

The Sky

Truly, if for the third time your answer is yes, then you are like St. Peter, who promised not to deny Christ but later denied him  three times despite Christ was about to suffer in the hands of the Romans and Jews.

Filipinos are thus logically like St. Peter,who can not be trusted on his words that he will not deny Christ, in the same way that Filipinos can not be trusted on their words alleging that they  loved God.

What is the basis of the above proposition?

The basis is the preamble in relation to Section 1 of Article XVI of 1987 Philippine Constitution, stating as follows:

We, the sovereign Filipino people, imploring the aid of Almighty God, in order to build a just and humane society, and establish a Government that shall embody our ideals and aspirations, promote the common good, conserve and develop our patrimony, and secure to ourselves and our posterity, the blessings of independence and democracy under the rule of law and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and peace, do ordain and promulgate this Constitution. (1987 Constitution preamble)

———————

Section 1. The flag of the Philippines shall be red, white, and blue, with a sun and three stars, as consecrated and honored by the people and recognized by law. (Section 1, Article XVI of the same Constitution)

 If you try to connect the said constitutional provisions to the character of God that was manifested when He said:

8I alone am the Lord your God. No other god may share my glory, I will not let idols share my phrase. (Isaiah 42:8, TEV)

logically, Filipinos are grossly insulting God by abusing the implored aid of the Almighty to consecrate the image of the sun and the three stars, which are contained in the Philippine Flag.

Note in Section 1 of Article XVI, which was adopted from the 1935 Philippine constitution, that the phrase ‘consecrated and honored by the people and recognized by law’ do  not refer directly to the Philippine Flag but directly to the sun and the three stars, as it is stated immediately after the latter. Otherwise, if the intention of  the provision is consecrating or honoring the Philippine flag, Section 1 should had been stated as follows:

Section 1. The flag of the Philippines, as consecrated and honored by the people and recognized by law, shall be red, white, and blue, with a sun and three stars.

In dictionary.reference,com, the verb consecrate is defined as follows:

consecrate
verb (used with object), con•se•crat•ed, con•se•crat•ing.
1. to make or declare sacred; set apart or dedicate to the service of a deity: to consecrate a new church building.
2. to make (something) an object of honor or veneration; hallow: a custom consecrated by time.
3. to devote or dedicate to some purpose: a life consecrated to science.
4.to admit or ordain to a sacred office, especially to the episcopate.
5. to change (bread and wine) into the Eucharist.
Therefore, Filipinos are logically directly consecrating the sun and the three stars as sacred through their adopted 1935 and 1987 Constitution. In short, if you are a Filipino, are you really sure that you respect or love God by constitutionally consecrating or making sacred or declaring them as if deities the image of the sun and the three stars?
