Constitutionally, Filipinos do not love God but love the sun and the three stars. This is so because they constitutionally consecrate and honor these images, which is a manifestation of loving. Since their idolatrous consecration is in blatant violation of the second commandment of God, then Filipinos cannot be logically said to be loving God.
The basis of this proposition 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:
I 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 and honor 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:
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.
Clearly therefore, Filipinos are logically directly consecrating and honoring the sun and the three stars as sacred through their adopted 1935 and 1987 Constitutions. In short, if you are a Filipino, are you really sure that you respect or love God by constitutionally consecrating and honoring or making sacred or declaring them as if deities the image of the sun and the three stars by way of imploring the aid of the Almighty?
