tell god's people

The signs of the times have spoken: the end is getting near. The predicaments are pulling down the Philippines in a quicksand of desperation. All the aspects of Philippine life are mired in grave issues in which we are all trapped.
Our political situation gets uglier each passing day. We have yet to solve the controversial cheating allegations of the previous national election, but here comes another election out to prove how personal interests are more valued over party loyalty, much less national recovery. Candidates previously identified with warring factions now sleep with the enemy. It takes no leap of the imagination to point out that instead of advancing political unity, they are all but advancing their own naked selfish motives to acquire power and wealth first by using each other, and ultimately by using their position to engage in graft and corruption.
Meanwhile, our economic situation paints an ironic picture: the government boasts of a stable economy, but millions of Filipinos comprising the masses are getting poorer and, therefore, hungrier. Some families claimed reducing their two meals a day into just one, sometimes, rather frustratingly, none at all. The rich are getting richer with their capitalistic and commercialistic tendencies, and their need to stabilize financially gets the better of their social conscience, so out they make more money at the expense of their laborers who barely live decently with their pittance of a salary.
Our social situation remains a series of scenes straight from a bad dream: a burgeoning population that can barely sustain itself with even the most basic needs of food, shelter, clothing and medication, a general crime rate that only holds on to a miracle to decrease, and a public perception that is everything but hopeful. With people growing more frustrated with the ultimate arrival of social justice that shall wipe out class, gender, age, educational and religious discrimination, the society will soon throw itself into chaos.
Our cultural situation is terribly endangered, with our heritage slowly being scrapped to give way to neocolonialist policies. We frown over local delicacies and beg for McDonald’s; we rip off American television shows and Hollywood films and feed them to the public that looked down on “inferior” local productions; we send our people away on a labor exile without so much as a flinch as to who will be left teaching our ignorant children, curing our sick people, building our national infrastructure.
Finally, our religious situation is at risk of pulling the country apart, for the Christians and the Muslims remain indifferent to one another despite the efforts of mutual understanding. The Christian community is itself demonized, with confessed members either backsliding or converting to New Age phenomena. The lure of material things, from money to sensual pleasures to social influence, makes us forget our spiritual priorities, and soon our faith in God will be irreparably damaged.
These, my fellowmen, construct the face of our current hell on earth. Long before we fall into the fiery depths of boiling sulfur and raging mud, we experience all of these right here, right now. General distraction traps us all in these problems, and we know what we lack but are too distracted to desire change. Wake up, my brethren; it’s not too late. Our return to oneness with God is all that’s begged by these helpless situations. God’s Holy words have emphasized it: that prioritizing our spirituality will produce a domino effect of goodness in our lives. It’s about time to let God reign in our midst, for what tribulations shall we find ourselves in when God’s on our side?

    They do not require as much work as many other animals do and
    are really fun to watch. E-papers do not minimize
    from covering stories that received little coverage in the reputed national papers.
    He quickly became a well known activist for Islamic revivalism calling for the ouster of pro-western governments using violent means if necessary.
    The growth in the circulation of newspapers in the country results in the overall economic prosperity of the country, inspiring
    it to higher levels. Until I was five I lived with
    my mother's younger sister Dorothy and my grandmother, who told me before she died that my mother had received letters from my father for some years after bringing me to New York.

    This can be flight simulator version FS2002, FS2004 or
    the latest version of Flight simulator, FSX.

    When you decide to buy the Flight Simulator Game, then first you have to be sure that
    exactly what are you want. Because Lemonade Tycoon is flash-based,
    it can be played by virtually anyone with a web browser.

    This kind of game is great because it can also provide scientific information,
    'Phun' would help with physics study obviously while
    other simulation games that offer choices could contribute valuable data to Psychology.
    Usually, would need to follow the entire startup sequence to start any of the airplanes,
    but FSP also has the auto start feature, to make it
    easier for newbie’s.

    Dont let the packaging fool you into buying
    something that may damage your hair. - If your hair feels rough, condition it right away.
    Almost from the time of our grandparents and other ancestors,
    the advantages of using olive oil are known to all. Yet, lack
    of moisture can also cause breakage, split-ends and brittle hair.
    Many people use hair greases to keep their hair
