How severe is the delusion of Filipino Catholics and Christians concerning Christmas? This could be answered either by theoretical or academic rhetoric or by what is actually happening to Filipinos during Christmas.
My friends used to greet me “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” during Christmas. As usual, I used to greet them back with the same Greetings before. But after realizing what is really in Christmas, I became hesitant to greet them with my usual greetings before and would greet them back with ‘good morning’ or ‘good afternoon’ or ‘good evening’ instead, just to let them feel that I am their friend. But neither could I tell them of craziness of Christmas. Otherwise, I expect rebuttal or be told as ‘kill joy’, etc.
What’s really in Christmas?
Many believed that Christmas is a celebration to commemorate or acknowledge the birth of Christ. This is good, as commemorating or acknowledging somebody’s birthday, especially if he is good, is indeed plausibly good. But whose birthday are Catholics and Christians celebrating for? So far, nobody can tell that December 25 is the date of birth of Christ, even (more…)
Economically and spiritually, Pope Francis’ January 15, 2015 visit to the Philippines is posing dangers to Filipinos. Despite this, Filipino Roman Catholics are welcoming him whole-heartedly in fulfillment of the prophecy in 2 Thessalonians 2: 11-12, stating: “11 so God will allow them to believe lies with all their hearts, 12 and all of them will be justly judged for believing falsehood, refusing the Truth, and enjoying their sins.” (TLB)
Also, above proposition is based on the premise that the previous visits of two former Popes, who promoted fictitious Jesus as Christ and God, including the Roman Catholic’s idolatry were associated with unexplained disasters in the country. These Popes were Pope Paul VI, who visited on November 27-29, 1970 and Pope John Paul II, who followed last February 1981 and January 15, 1995.
Historically, Philippines was noted to continue suffering since 1970, when the first Pope visited the country, which contradicts the theory that Pope’s visit has a blessing effect on the country. In fact, since then (more…)
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)
Several questions are needed to know if you are an enemy or a friend. Filipinos, how do you rate yourselves? Are you friends or enemies of God? Considering the Bohol-Cebu earthquake and the Yolanda incidents, are you still confident that God is your friend?
You still believe your attendance in “mass” every Sunday and your recitation of “emperata”, “holy Rosary”, etc. will make you as friends?
Then how many more calamities and up to what extent, until you get into your senses? C’mon, how many??? Because, He is listening.
Were the idols, e.g statues and images using “The Name” of Mother Mary and Jesus Christ, able to protect? Was the alleged “holy” Cross able to ward off calamities? Were the Nuestra Senora, Fatima, Salvacion, etc, which deceptively used “The Name” of Mother Mary able to intercede?
Were the beads and string of the alleged “holy” Rosary effective? Was the government, which legalized “onanism” or reproductive health law, able (more…)
