LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Yet to all who did receive Him, to those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God--- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God…” (John 1:12-13, the Holy Bible)

MRT 7 PROJECT SHOWCASES DOTr’S INCOMPETENCE, ONCE AGAIN: It cannot be denied, many of those who serve in government, particularly in agencies that have, unfortunately, something to do with public works projects worth trillions or billions of pesos, the Department of Transportation (DOTr) now under the controversial Secretary Arthur Tugade included, have serious mental issues affecting their capability to uphold the interest and welfare of the country and its people.

Let us take the MRT 7 project as an example. Now, it is facing serious problems because there is a great obstacle towards its completion, simply because the purchase by the government of the parcel of land which would be used as a depot has not been finalized yet. Imagine, the DOTr is now spending billons for this MRT 7 project despite the fact that it has not perfected yet the purchase of the land to be used as a depot!

The DOTr is trying to pass the blame to a judge in Malolos City, allegedly because he allowed the owner of the land to be paid by the government an additional P510 million for his property. In the face of all these, it is the DOTr which should be blamed and castigated, for yet another display of incompetence and inefficiency.

How on earth did it decide to start the MRT 7 project, spending billions in government funds already, even if a prime portion of it, the land for the depot, had not been acquired yet?

JESUS IS THE “MIGHTY GOD, EVERLASTING FATHER” ACCORDING TO ISAIAH 7:14, 9:6:  It is indeed gratifying to see that many Bible scholars around the world accept the position that a prophecy made in Isaiah 9:6 of the Bible, made some 700 years before Jesus was born, got fulfilled when Jesus was born to Mary, the virgin mother, in a humble manger in Bethlehem.

What this means is that, all the experts and authorities on the Bible are one in the belief that the baby boy referred to in Isaias 9:6, Jesus, is the “Might God, Everlasting Father” Himself.

This means that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Happily, this is the same belief espoused by the Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ Church (or AND KNK, Simbahang Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo).

Isaiah 9:6 is definitely a mere continuation of Isaiah 7:14, where it was prophesied that the event involving the virgin and her baby boy would be signs from God the Father Himself. Isaiah 9:6 explains what, or who, is the baby boy that Isaiah 7:14 mentioned--- the boy that was conceived, and given birth to, as a man with flesh and blood, by a virgin woman, who is a human being, too.

Isaiah 9:6 says that this baby boy is  the “Mighty God, Everlasting Father”, no more no less.

BP 22 ON BOUNCING CHECKS: This is a question from someone who sought legal assistance from “Bitag ni Ben Tulfo”: “Does a person who issued a check that bounced, because that person lost his work and his ability to pay, still have any liability? In our case, the payee of the check and I entered into a new agreement that would allow me to pay the amount of the checks that bounced monthly, at a great lower sum. Does this agreement have any effect on the checks that bounced?”

Here was the answer of the LAWYERS IN THE LIGHT (o Lawyers Instructed on Godliness, Humility, and Truth): First, whenever a check bounces or is dishonored for lack of funds, criminal liability attaches to the issuer immediately. As long as the check bounced, the drawer or issuer becomes liable for Batas Pambansa 22, for bouncing checks.

However, since the drawer and the payee of the check that bounced entered into a new agreement allowing the drawer to instead pay the check in some way or another (either cash or installment), the drawer’s criminal liability is deemed to have been extinguished, because of what is known as a “novation of contract”. The new agreement whereby the drawer will instead pay for the value of the bounced checks gives rise to a new agreement.
