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)
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?
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.
