KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

BY Atty. BATAS MAURICIO

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… fear the Lord and shun evil. This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones…” (Proverbs 3:7-8, the Holy Bible).

POLITICIANS; “SAME DOG, DIFFERENT COLLAR”: Here is an item posted in Facebook by veteran broadcaster Melo Acuna: “Am not surprised people talk about Grace Poe, Chiz Escudero, Jojo Binay, Mar Roxas, Rod Duterte and other presidential wannabes. It’s as if these persons can do miracles for a “promised land” like the Philippines. Where are they coming from? What party platforms to they represent?

“During Marcos’ time, it was KBL, then came UNIDO under Cory Aquino, Lakas under Ramos, PMP under Estrada, KAMPI under Arroyo and now Liberal Party under PNoy Aquino. Take a serious look at the party ideals, political parties change whenever a new president from a different party assumes political power.

“And here’s something more interesting, look at the members’ list and you’ll see the same names, different political parties same as same dog, different collar.

What ideas and ideals can they impart to a disgusted people who look at politics just like show business?”

FOOD POISONING DUE TO CHEMICALS USED IN GROWING FOOD: Felipe Gabriel, an agriculturist who espouses organic farming through a system called “Pro-Biotics” sent this reaction to an item we wrote on the rampant food poisoning in the country today: “First of all, we must address the problem at its root cause! The people are poisoned because the soil where food is raised is a dead soil due to excessive highly toxic chemicals sprayed lavishly on the soil and crops.

“Deadly and carcinogenic antibiotics are made regular ingredients of livestock feeds (chicken, hogs and cattle) aggravated by genetically-modified organis-based grains and feeds, laden with chemicals found by scientists as the main cause ofcCancer and other debilitating diseases!

“All of these food carry in their cell contaminated substances that are given to us and our children as food! What I am trying to point out is, the huge budget of government should be dedicated to organic/natural farming.  What do you think Atty Batas? We should act now or our grandchildren will persecute or worst of all, curse us after our generation! It’s now or never!”

WANT A HEALTHIER LIFE? READ THE BIBLE! Cancer Resource and Wellness Community (Carewell) should be commended for working to fight cancer and other illnesses with “laughter yoga”, or laughing out load to eliminate psychological and emotional stress, but it would do well for it to teach likewise, and more urgently if I may say so, the healing powers of studying the Bible as the Word of God.

Indeed, the Bible teaches us that the Word of God is the source of more days and longer lives (Proverbs 3:1-2) for any individual. It tells us that anyone who hopes in the Lord will renew his strength, will soar highly as if he had the wings of an eagle, will run and walk and not be tired and weary (Isaiah 40:31).

So, if anyone wants to be healthy, we should endeavor to receive our “daily bread” as Jesus, our God and Savior, taught us in the prayer “Our Father”, written in Matthew 6:9-13, which “bread” is actually the Bible, or the Word of God. Imbibing the Word of God everyday makes us stronger and healthier, as 1 Timothy 4:8 tells us, and enable God’s power to fill us, allowing to do Try God now!
