BECAUSE OF FUND CORRUPTION, THE LOWER HOUSE MUST BE ABOLISHED NOW: The disclosure by House Minority Leader and Quezon Province Rep. Danilo Suarez on the diversion by some congressmen of hundreds of millions of pesos from the 2019 national budget to the congressional districts of other lawmakers constitutes a compelling and urgent reason for the abolition and immediate closure of the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Imagine this: many lawmakers from the upper and lower chambers of Congress have already proven themselves unable to do anything for the greater good for the greater number of our people even if they have been serving as such lawmakers for long periods of time already, yet, they still have the temerity to divert hundreds and hundreds of millions of pesos from the country’s annual budget, all for their own personal benefit.

As of now, I pose this challenge to Suarez: he must name the congressman, or congressmen if there is more than one of them, who, he said, “parked” some P500 million from the national budget of 2019 to other lawmakers’ congressional districts which, however, would be ultimately used by the unscrupulous lawmakers for their own purposes. This is a clear case of corruption, and if Suarez clams up on this for any reason, he is as guilty as the perpetrators of this congressional scam.

PROOFS OFFERED BY JESUS THAT HE IS GOD THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT (VIII): In the second joyful mystery of the Roman Catholics’ Rosary, where Mary hurried to visit her cousin Elizabeth after the angel Gabriel earlier appeared to the would-be mother of Jesus, it was clear why Mary was in a hurry to go to where Elizabeth was then residing---to make sure that Gabriel’s announcement that Elizabeth, who was already very old and was even considered barren at that time, was indeed six-months pregnant.

Mary, of course, subsequently confirmed that Elizabeth, her old cousin, was expecting her own baby---this can be read from Luke 1:39-45 of the Bible. But be that as it may, this story of Mary’s “visitation” of Elizabeth is quite important because it also confirms that Jesus is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When taken with the other striking events in the Bible we have already tackled here, the “visitation” represents another “chain” in the many pieces of evidence that Jesus is God the Father.

What was more amazing was that, after Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit upon hearing Mary’s greeting, the child in Elizabeth’s womb (the child would turn out to be John the Baptist, the one who baptized Jesus in the Jordan River) leaped in her womb. Then, Elizabeth made a rather extra-ordinary recognition of Mary as “the mother of my Lord”. These events are certainly beyond the ordinary.

They all happened to prove that the baby that Mary would give birth to is God the Father Himself.

WE PROVIDE FREE LEGAL COUNSELING: From one who introduces himself as Ian Kervi Balase Legion in Facebook: “Hi Sir. You have been recommended by my friend Shavana Castillo regarding my legal issue…”

Here is the comment from LAWYERS IN THE LIGHT (Lawyers Instructed on Godliness, Humility, and Truth): Thank you Ian Kervi Balase Legion (if this really is your name).

Anyway, to us who try to serve others through free legal counselling, it is clear that we respond to all queries or requests for legal opinions that are thrown our way, particularly from our countrymen who, because of extreme poverty, cannot even afford to pay at least the consultation fees charged by other private lawyers, or who feel it would take ages for government lawyers to answer their concerns.

We do not charge any consultations fees. It is free. Of course, we know this would take out some time from our busy schedules, but it is okay. We consider this as our small way of trying to serve our God and Savior, who is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Right now, we accept all questions, no matter what areas of law might be involved---civil, criminal, administrative, corporate, or any other legal matter. Just send us a text question, or an email, to the numbers and address indicated below. Thank God in the Name of Jesus, Amen.
