KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

BY Atty. BATAS MAURICIO

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… So do not listen to your prophets, your diviners, your interpreters of dreams, your mediums or your sorcerers…” (Jeremiah 27:9, the Holy Bible).

APPEAL FROM “AND KNK” AND “LIGHT”: The Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ Church (or AND KNK, Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo) and a group of lawyers calling themselves LIGHT (or Lawyers Instructed by the Gospel on Holiness and Truth) are making an appeal to concerned TV companies to be more circumspect in the choice of the programs they air, to prevent Filipinos from lessening in, or altogether losing, their belief in God.

With due respect, one example of programs that is bound to all the more negatively affect the faith of Filipinos in God are those with themes dealing with the supposed capabilities of witch doctors to interchange the souls of people who are still living, to enable those souls to inhabit the bodies of other persons.

In the Christian faith—which I am certain is the faith espoused by the owners of the aforesaid TV companies—there is no man anywhere in the world who has the power to transfer souls of people to other bodies. This kind of a power, if ever, belongs only to Jesus, our God and Savior who is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

ONLY GOD HAS THE POWER TO PERFORM GREAT MIRACLES: Be that as it may, if only a more serious study of the Bible is made by anyone, it will not fail to impress them that, yes, there are people who have been gifted with the power of magic or of great miracles which other human beings have not been blessed with. But this power of magic and of great miracles can never prevail against the power of

God.

This much is shown by the story of Moses and by the miracles that God performed through him to compel the king of Egypt then to allow the nation of Israel to leave the country and worship their God. In the first tragedies that God sent to Egypt, the magicians and sorcerers in the service of the king managed to duplicate what God had done through Moses.

But in the curse of the gnats which came from the dust of Egypt, the king’s magicians and sorcerers failed to produce their own gnats. They were forced to confess to their king that the gnats “were the handiwork of God” and that they didn’t have the power to imitate the production of gnats. Subsequently, not one of these magicians and sorcerers succeeded in replicating the other more serious plagues that God sent through Moses.

PROGRAMS THAT ENTICE PEOPLE AWAY FROM GOD MUST STOP: At present, the prophecy from the Bible that many will abandon their faith in God and would be obeying instead the deceiving teachings and directions of evil is undeniably taking place already (1 Timothy 4:1).

As a consequence, during the end times (the very time where we are all in right now), many will turn to sin in their thoughts, speech, action, and appearance.

There is only one who will be happy with this. It would be the devil, because this would enable him to bring many to the hell of fire and worms. That being the case, all those who truly believe in God must act and obey His commands: snatch away those who have been destined for hell, and no believer must say that he has nothing to do with this work of snatching away, for God knows their hearts and would correspondingly punish them.

The question here is simple: how can believers snatch away those who have been destined to go to hell if people continue receiving deceiving teachings and directions of evil, through television, radio, newspapers, and even through the Internet? Media must then endeavor to stop the airing of any material that encourages drifting away from God!
