Some were offended by this picture.
I am not sure if it is because of me using the DU30 and his minions as symbol of idolatries or it is because they are devotees of the Black Nazarene.
My friends -both are idolatries and does not refer to the proper worship of the Triune God and esp the Son of God who is already sitting as Man in the right hand of the Father in Heaven, who will again come as Judge.
One is an idol of wood ( Black Nazarene) the other an idol of flesh and idea( DU30 and Statism).
Roman Catholic priests and leaders should educate their members on this and discourage this folk religion debasing the Catholic faith found in their catechisms and the writings of the church fathers.
Since Vatican 2 -the Roman Catholic church – their scholars and their bishops are warning of the misguided devotions to this folk Catholic piety. It does not represent true biblical potrait of the Lord Jesus, nor does it cultivate Christian virtues and the fruit of the Spirit in their daily lives.
As millions joined in this parades – many are joining it without understanding the Christ of faith and of history. Our Lord Jesus in fact in the Gospel avoided such mindless rituals and chasing after miracles – without knowing who He truly is.
If you dont like what I post -unfriend me in FB-it will not affect my friendship with you.
If you disagree – disagree and state your position here in public so that others may react and understand your position .Don’t send me private message.
In the same way if I found out you are really an enabler of the fascist DU30, even after reasoning with you and after his 3 years of misleadership – I will unfriend and block you.
Don’t say that this method is not effective or it is unloving.
Define first what love is to you and ask why you are silent about these sins until now.Don’t disconnect Truth from Love. Or it is mere sentimentality.
The devil and his minions are not passive nor silent.
And his human cohorts are mobilizing their misappropriated money to deceive Filipinos -here and abroad.
