KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

BY Atty. BATAS MAURICIO

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God…” (Ephesians 4:13, the Holy Bible).

HUGE REACTIONS ON ISSUES OF SPIITUALITY: I am greatly encouraged by reactions to what we have been writing in our columns about spirituality, particularly our invitation for men and women who want to be pastors or preachers of the Word of God by undergoing a Bible course through radio and Internet. Many have responded and signified they wish to be part of this Bible course.

Then, I am also receiving a lot of reactions, for and against, about our claim here that there is actually no doctrine of “born again” in the Bible, because what Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, really said to Nicodemus in John 3:3 was that, in order for man to enter the kingdom of God, he must be “born of God” and not “born again.”

I thank each and everyone for all these reactions. Indeed, issues of spirituality would always generate so much interest among many Filipinos, whether for or against any views or perceptions articulated by people who have been given inspiration to talk about God and His Word. More importantly, I thank God in the Name of Jesus that people are even publicly reacting.

INDEPENDENT CHISTIAN CHURCHES SEEK BONDING AND UNITY: But then, I am also receiving calls from Christian churches which are not affiliated with any big religious groups, inquiring not only on how they could send their members, particularly the youth, to the Bible course, but also on the possibility of those churches federating or affiliating with the Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo (AND KNK, or the Childrern of God Blood Kin of the Christ).

These churches, though calling their members “born again” followers, are independent churches, and are functioning all by themselves. While they are already trying to study the Bible, it would seem they are interested in bonding with other spiritual groups who share their beliefs and their aspirations of becoming members of the “body of Christ”.

I asked the leadership of AND KNK about this and the response was terrific: AND KNK is willing to federate, bond together, and accept into its fold independent Christian churches from the provinces and even from abroad, subject only to the acceptance of AND KNK’s principal doctrine that Jesus is God and Savior, and that He is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, all rolled into one, as it were.

AND KNK WILLING TO TALK WITH CHRISTIAN CHURCHES: Consequently, I have been asked to announce that our Church, the AND KNK, is ready, able, and willing to accept independent Christian churches from anywhere in the Philippines and in the whole world which may want to federate, associate, bond, or affiliate with us, or which may simply want to inquire of our doctrinal teachings or beliefs.
