KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

BY Atty. BATAS MAURICIO

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry…” (Colossians 3:5, the Holy Bible).

IS ANYONE OF YOU SICK? Here’s a tip for those having health issues: it is clear that having a healthy body and a healthy mind are gifts from God. This maybe difficult to understand for many, but let me put it this way. It is God who made us, and gave us our minds. It is also God who will sustain this body and this mind that are in us.

So, being healthy, in our bodies and in our minds, is a matter of knowing God by reading His Bible, and obeying carefully everything that is written therein. If we read His Bible and obey His commands, our bones will be nourished, our flesh is strengthened, and our minds are directed towards success and prosperity.

Then, we should also make it a habit to raise our hands over the food we eat and the drinks we partake, in thanksgiving for God’s generosity to us, and in supplication so that the food and drinks become for us the body and blood of Jesus every time. Try these techniques each time, and you can be assured of God’s providence in our minds, bodies, and spirit all throughout your lives!

DISCLOSURES VS. POLL CHAIR MEANT TO OUST HIM? I already read the affidavit of Patricia Bautista detailing her alleged discoveries of the wealth of Chairman Juan Andres Bautista of the Commission on Elections, and my worst fears that the affidavit cannot be used to charge the Chairman of graft and corruption and hidden wealth are confirmed.

As I already wrote here earlier, no wife or husband shall be allowed to testify against their spouses, without the spouses’ consent, except when the case where their testimonies are to be given are their cases against one another. Here, the contemplated cases against the Chairman are not cases by Patricia versus Andy. The same thing is true with the supposed impeachment complaint.

Now, if Patricia’s affidavit and testimony cannot be used in any criminal cases against her husband, and that it cannot also be used in impeaching him, why did she and her lawyers insist on executing it and making it public anyway? To pressure the Chairman to resign from the Commission would be the most likely objective! Now, who could be orchestrating the Chairman’s exit from the poll body?

YES, HOMOSEXUALITY IS A GIFT FROM GOD: I can agree with the pronouncement by Brazilian Roman Catholic Bishop Antonio Carlos Cruz Santos that homosexuality is a “gift from God”. Indeed, what a person is or is not is a gift from God all the time. Yet, like any and all other gifts, whatever is given by God to us should be used solely for His glory, and not to indulge man’s flesh and sinfulness.

It is an undeniable truth that everything in this world was created by God for a good purpose, principal of which is to praise, worship, and thank Him. If what was created is devoted to praising, worshipping and thanking God, power, peace, and prosperity abounds.

When anything or anyone deviates from these purposes of creation, decay and death inevitably follow. God created man and woman for each other, not man for man or woman for woman and that is what everyone should strive for. If as a consequence of the “gift of homosexuality” man deviates from his destiny with a woman, homosexuality becomes a curse, and leads to disease and death.
