LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land…” (2 Chronicles 7:14, the Holy Bible).


YES, GOV’T HAS THE RIGHT TO KILL, SEN. PACQUIAO, BUT ONLY AFTER DUE PROCESS IS HONESTLY OBSERVED: The undeniable truth in the Philippines is that, yes, the government (or even any private person or group) can kill criminals or any other person, legally and in accordance with the laws and the Constitution.  Under Section 1, Art. 3, of the 1987 Constitution, it is there provided that “(N)o person shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law.”

The clear import of this is that, anyone can be killed by the government, as long as due process is observed first. In fact, even under the Revised Penal Code, any person who faces grave danger is authorized to kill whoever is the source of the danger to his life.

The problem, however, is that, due process is sometimes difficult to be honestly and faithfully observed and implemented, and is usually made to bend towards powerful, rich and influential citizens by a lot of factors.

And this is what is scary. There are a lot who complain that they have been unjustly punished for a crime they did not commit.

Sometimes, the complaints against unjust punishment get to be aired only after the person accused of a crime had already been executed.

Maybe Sen. Pacquiao should first work towards improving the justice system in the country, where everyone is truly given his rights, before insisting on capital punishment.


NO DOUBT, IT WAS GOD THE FATHER HIMSELF WHO WAS BORN AS A MAN: Isaiah 7 and Isaiah 9 are two chapters in the Bible which unequivocably declare God’s resolution to come down from heaven and come to earth in the form of man, with flesh and blood, so He Himself would be the One to accept and suffer, in His holy flesh, holy blood, and in His Holy Spirit, the punishment that man should receive on account of their sinfulness.

In these two chapters, God Himself gave a sign that He would come to the world as a baby boy who would be conceived and born from the virgin woman, Mary. This is what Isaiah 7:14 says: “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel…”

What was the nature of the baby that the virgin gave birth to? Was he human? The answer is, no, he was not human. Isaiah 9:6 clarified this, by proclaiming, without any hesitation: “… For to us a child is born, to us a son is given… And he will be called Mighty God, Everlasting Father…” There should be no doubt, therefore, that it was God the Father Himself who came down to earth. And the Father has a Name. Do you know that Name is? We will disclose this next issue, God willing.


FEDERAL CONSTITUTION’S PREAMBLE ACKNOWLEDGES THAT ONLY GOD CAN LEAD THE NATION TO TRUE CHANGE: I will have to correct myself on the Preamble of the proposed Federal Constitution, with the kind indulgence of our readers here at Kakampi Mo Ang Batas. That Preamble actually mentioned “Almighty God”, not just “the Almighty” as I wrote here earlier. The version I earlier utilized for the earlier column seems to have missed the reference to God.

With that, I can now say that the Preamble truly gives thorough importance to God, acknowledging that He is possessed with power and might. And, with due respect to other believers of God, I am of the perception that the Preamble’s reference to God was actually taken from the Christian Bible, especially from Isaiah 9:6, the verse we quoted above, which actually refers to the child that was born to Mary as the “Mighty God, Everlasting Father”.

And this is as it should be. I would not tire repeating, again and again, that the only way for the Filipino nation to experience abundance in material riches is for them to anchor their thoughts, words, actions and appearance, on the commands of God—particularly those contained in the Bible. That is why I believe that the Preamble of the Federal Constitution is a good start, towards redirecting our countrymen to true belief in God!
