LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…Help, Lord, for no one is faithful anymore; those who are loyal have vanished from the human race…” (Psalm 12:1, the Holy Bible).

WHO CAN WE BELIEVE: PNOY OR JINGGOY? So, who are we going to believe now: President Aquino, who is denying he wrote his instructions on what to do with the letter-complaint dated April 17, 2013 of Janet Napoles, complaining about persecution and illegal arrest of his brother, Reynald Lim, by the National Bureau of Investigation, or Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, who is saying Aquino wrote some instructions to favor Napoles in the letter itself?

The truth about this matter should be disclosed to the Filipino people, who are entitled to know what their elected president has done, or has not done, over matters affecting Napoles and her family. Jinggoy is right in asking Justice Secretary Leila De Lima to produce the original of that letter, which is said to be in her possession.

So, I join those who are seeking the release of the original of that letter. Let us see what it really contains. It is after all a public document, containing a criminal complaint, which was acted upon by President Aquino in his capacity as the Chief Executive. Republic Act 6713, the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for those in government, requires the publication of that letter.

PNOY HIDING SOMETHING IN THE NAPOLES CASE: I can see that Aquino is trying to hide something about the letter of Napoles. I mean, why did he not immediately release that letter to the media and to the public, if he had nothing to hide?

And why is Aquino now engaged in turning the tables around against Jinggoy about that letter, by saying that Jinggoy should instead explain about the participation of Gen. Rodulfo Diaz in the supposed extortion attempt against Napoles, as if to show that Jinggoy is related to, or is somehow responsible, for Diaz’ actions?

The fact is that, Diaz and the Estrada-Ejercito family had a parting of ways, a falling out of friendship, at the height of EDSA 2, where Diaz, even when he was then President Estrada’s chief of the Presidential Security Command, was supposed to have defected to the Gloria Arroyo camp, together with the late Gen. Angelo Reyes. From then on, it was some sort of a cold war between Diaz and the Estradas.

CHINA’S INTRUSIONS A BIBLICAL PROPHECY FULFILLED: Many are exasperated that all that President Aquino could do is to express his concern and lament the reports that Chinese ships are now reclaiming land in the West Philippine Sea, in violation of Philippine sovereignty and a clear act of invasion and war, but then, what can he and the Filipinos really do to contest China’s might and greed?

Truly, we have no military firepower to legitimately oppose what China is doing now, in much the same way that Vietnam, Japan, and the other stakeholders in the dispute over the Spratly Islands have no military capability to fight China. But then, there is something else our countrymen can do, and it is to look at the problem from the point of view of the Bible.

In its Book of Curses in Deuteronomy 28:15-68, the Bible is saying that among God’s curses for a people who longer listen to Him (who no longer read His Bible) and who no longer obey Him, is the coming of a “nation against you from far away… whose language you will not understand…who will lay siege to all the cities throughout your land…” This Book of the Bible offers a solution which maybe worth taking.
