I made a vow that I will be supporting whoever God appoints as the President of the Philippines last presidential election and that even if that is Duterte, I will certainly accept with gladness and support. This is because of Romans 13:1-2 which says, “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, whoever rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves.”
I have a little thought to ponder though, what if the government rules the legalization of same-sex marriage in the Philippines; will the Christian church still support the government? I am just wondering. But you know, this is for another blog.
Recently, I kind of reacted with all my might regarding the “stupid God” issue involving the President because my God is certainly omniscient — I am baffled by the justifications circulating around about the statement when the transcript was clear. I mean, I don’t know about other people’s God, but mine’s all-knowing. I mean, at least the God being referenced by the President on the story of Creation in the Book of Genesis. It’s not a folklore where the plot could get twisted somewhere in the middle. When we talk about God, we don’t talk in hidden meanings or cryptic codes, one shames God jokingly, one shames God period.
the action or offence of speaking sacrilegiously about God or sacred things; profane talk.
I have a lot of opinions but that’s it. One should not force his/her beliefs to others and it’s not stupidity to support the President, it is in fact the more normal response. However, it is also not stupidity to have another opinion be it an opposing one.
What I notice is that people react to being called names, but doesn’t mind calling others names or doesn’t mind if their posts become platforms to those who are bullies and name-callers. Tolerating these cyber bullies is the same as being one. I have a lot of political posts but I end up making it private (only me) or I delete them sometimes when the thread gets a little hot. My friends are more important to me than these political brouhahas. So I don’t really resort to telling people they’re stupid for opposing my beliefs. I am blessed to have enough friends who agree to disagree. But not all of my contacts are agreeable, some are real die hard fanatics who would burn bridges just for someone who do not even know their names. I just blocked three today for always mocking those who don’t share the same opinion as them.
My all-knowing God knows your names, by the way.
I only wonder on stranger things like my father becoming quite a ka-DDS. I mean this is the person who raised me according to his values and beliefs, I am who he is — I am more him than mommy. I wonder which genetic anomaly caused us to be on opposing sides. It’s my life values that made me become a non-fan of PRRD, life values that came from my father — but how come? All I can do though is wonder for life. I believe that my father has the right to choose whom to support but like I said, someone who molded me into who I am?!
I can only wonder for life.
Besides, it’s only family who can get befuddled about the strangeness of things amongst us since we are the ones who know each of us well enough to warrant these eternal perplexities.
Enough of these PRRD talks — this is what worries me more, the Queen of All.
This meme is the best. Of course, not that funny if it weren’t for the one who reposted it, none other than Jake Ejercito, the son of former President Estrada.
And by the way, I would rather have Heart Evangelista as the country’s President: First order of business, “Dapat lahat maganda” (everyone must be beautiful)
Heart won my heart in this year’s SONA’s Best Dressed. I have to agree with Fashion Pulis whose blog I give credit for these photos.
