KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

BY Atty. BATAS MAURICIO

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons…” (1 Timothy 4:1, the Holy Bible).

WHY CAN’T FACEBOOK AND MESSENGER PREVENT VIDEO SCAMS?  There is someone (or, maybe, something) that is causing the sending of videos in Facebook Messenger using the names of FB and Messenger friends. I say this because, lately, I have been receiving these videos in my FB Messenger, purportedly coming from a fellow Church member at the Simbahang Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo (or Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ Church).

Yet, the poor fellow Church member is vehemently denying that the videos came from him. Well, I have chosen not to open the videos, not only because the supposed sender is denying it, but more so because, in all probability, the videos contain viruses that may infect computers.

My only concern is this: can’t Facebook Messenger do anything to stop this evident scam? In all their technological savvy and expertise—which allowed it to earn billions and billions of dollars for its makers—it is surprising and incomprehensible that Facebook and/or Messenger cannot prevent a very simple scam like this.

Are you that helpless in preventing scams, Facebook and Messenger? Or, is it right to assume you are not interested in preventing this particular scam, for your own interests? Just asking...

PASTORS EXORCISE EVIL SPIRITS IN SOUTH COTABATO JAIL: I am glad about the report, coming from South Cotabato Provincial Jail Warden Juan Lanzaderas, that their prayers to exorcise alleged “evil spirits” that possessed prisoners at their facility seem to have been answered.

Lazaderas told a radio news network that the “pray-over” carried out by pastors  was successful, resulting in the ouster of the “evil spirits”. Indeed, the truth cannot be denied that there are evil spirits out there, ever ready to pounce on unsuspecting individuals. The Bible confirms that evil spirits in the air are the real enemies today, because they purvey sin and godlessness.

EVIL POSSESSION HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE NO LONGER READ AND OBEY THE BIBLE: The question, however, is this: how do evil spirits possess the minds and bodies of people? Is the report from the radio news network which attribute the possession of the prisoners at the South Cotabato Provincial Jail—that the spirits allegedly got angry because of the installation of a water pump near their lair—true?

Well, the Bible makes it clear that evil spirits actually are in the air, in the atmosphere, and enter the minds of people who no longer hold true to their faith, who no longer read the Bible and no longer obey God’s commands, and instead listen to deceiving teachings and teachings from evil.

How then do ordinary individuals fight this off? By getting a daily dose of God’s “bread and wine”, that’s how. This means that each and every person must read the Word of God, the Bible, daily, meditate on it day and night, and carefully obey everything that is written in it. That way, it would be the Spirit of God who will come into their minds, to guide them, bless them, and give them protection from all evil. Try it!
