Not all great things are good or of God. (Revelation 17:5)
“And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.’
It is clear in the verse that this great Babylon is the mother all abomination upon the earth.
There are “gangs and illegal organizations that grow to be international; traversing boundaries of continents and counties heavily guarded by armed authorities.It maybe a paradox in this world wherein fundamental laws and mouths of powerful people condemn evil. The irony is so clear: that while human society condemns evil in the open, evil grows to be “great” in the underworld. The bible has the explanation. In Psalms 37:35 (ASV) it says,
“I have seen the wicked in great power, And spreading himself like a green tree in its native soil. “
Why does it grow to be great?
The answer: evil have the power to influence — even the good. (I Corinthians 15:33 ASV):
“Be not deceived: Evil companionships corrupt good morals.”
The aggravating factor is that while most world’s leaders condemn evil by mouth, they approve or tolerate it by heart. (Romans 1:32)
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Killing person mercilessly — or mercifully —is against the scripture. (Matthew 5:44)
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;”
If we love our enemies we will not kill them. In fact, we are obliged to feed them when hungry and alleviate their thirst when thirsty. (Romans 12:20)
“Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head.”
The logic is clear: if we can love our enemies by heart, the more we can love our relatives and friends — and even ourselves! It is marvelous that while the catholic church profess to be the only true religion in the world, it has in its known history, records of murder and mutiny of heretics and innocent people.
Biblical records reveal that christians were murdered, but never were murderers! Murderers are of the devil John 8:44:
“Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.”
In the time of the Israelites, only condemned people are being put to death mercilessly. Hebrew 10:28-29:
“He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?”
It is God’s command to His people to execute His judgment unto this condemned people. Deuteronomy 17:2, 6:
“If there be found among you, within any of thy gates which the LORD thy God giveth thee, man or woman, that hath wrought wickedness in the sight of the LORD thy God, in transgressing his covenant, At the mouth of two witnesses, or three witnesses, shall he that is worthy of death be put to death; but at the mouth of one witness he shall not be put to death.”
God is the giver of life. Acts 17:28:
“For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring. “
…and is the only one who has the right to take it back. Deuteronomy 32:39:
“See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand. “
The commandment “thou shall not revenge for vengence is mine” is a vivid indication that even His people aggrieved by their enemies cannot take life by themselves. How can now the “great” Catholic Church claim that they are of God and vindicate their crime biblically? The order from your highest authorities to burn manuscripts of the Bible translated by Wycliffe in the language that can be understood by people, and to burn Tyndale alive for translating the Bible into english are acts proving the satanic power behind the Catholic Church. The only credible truth to be believed and to be accepted wholeheartedly is the word of God. ( John 17:17)
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.”
Whatever make-up or camouflage anybody may attempt, to cover-up the crimes they have committed against humanity are not acceptable to a thinking mind.
The Mormons cannot deny their unchristian doctrine of blood shedding:
But under certain circumstances there are some serious sins for which the cleansing of Christ does not operate, and the law of God is that men must then have their own blood shed to atone for their sins. Murder, for instance, is one of these sins; hence we find the Lord commanding capital punishment. Thus, also, if a person has so progressed in righteousness that his calling and election has been made sure, if he has come to that position where he knows “by revelation and the spirit of prophecy, through the power of the Holy Priesthood” that he is sealed up unto eternal life (D. & C. 131:5), then if he gains forgiveness for certain grievous sins, he must “be destroyed in the flesh” and “delivered unto the buffetings of satan unto the day of redemotion, saith the Lord God.” (Doctrines and Covenants 132:19-27)
The Christian era is very much different from the Mosaic times of God’s people. While God uses His people to condemn people to death in the olden times, Christ commanded His disciples to be merciful even to the most bitter of their enemies (Hebrews 9:10; 8:13; 7:12).
“Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.”
“In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.”
“For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.”
I may, for a while, say that those religion who do not know Christ (like Confucianism) is better than the Mormons that claim to be Christians and teaching cruel, unchristian doctrines. (II Peter 2:21)
“For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.”
Having said this, I also disagree with Confucianism… to be continued……..

Earthquakes strike suddenly, violently and without warning. Identifying potential hazards ahead of time and advance planning can reduce the dangers of serious injury or loss of life from an earthquake. Repairing deep plaster cracks in ceilings and foundations, anchoring overhead lighting fixtures to the ceiling, and following local seismic building standards, will help reduce the impact of earthquakes.
Six Ways to Plan Ahead
1. Check for Hazards in the Home
o Fasten shelves securely to walls.
o Place large or heavy objects on lower shelves.
o Store breakable items such as bottled foods, glass, and china in low, closed cabinets with latches.
o Hang heavy items such as pictures and mirrors away from beds, couches, and anywhere people sit.
o Brace overhead light fixtures.
o Repair defective electrical wiring and leaky gas connections. These are potential fire risks.
o Secure a water heater by strapping it to the wall studs and bolting it to the floor.
o Repair any deep cracks in ceilings or foundations. Get expert advice if there are signs of structural defects.
o Store weed killers, pesticides, and flammable products securely in closed cabinets with latches and on bottom shelves.
2. Identify Safe Places Indoors and Outdoors
o Under sturdy furniture such as a heavy desk or table.
o Against an inside wall.
o Away from where glass could shatter around windows, mirrors, pictures, or where heavy bookcases or other heavy furniture could fall over.
o In the open, away from buildings, trees, telephone and electrical lines, overpasses, or elevated expressways.
3. Educate Yourself and Family Members
o Contact your local emergency management office or American Red Cross chapter for more information on earthquakes. Also read the "How-To Series" for information on how to protect your property from earthquakes.
o Teach children how and when to call 9-1-1, police, or fire department and which radio station to tune to for emergency information.
o Teach all family members how and when to turn off gas, electricity, and water.
4. Have Disaster Supplies on Hand
o Flashlight and extra batteries.
o Portable battery-operated radio and extra batteries.
o First aid kit and manual.
o Emergency food and water.
o Nonelectric can opener.
o Essential medicines.
o Cash and credit cards.
o Sturdy shoes.
5. Develop an Emergency Communication Plan
o In case family members are separated from one another during an earthquake (a real possibility during the day when adults are at work and children are at school), develop a plan for reuniting after the disaster.
o Ask an out-of-state relative or friend to serve as the "family contact." After a disaster, it's often easier to call long distance. Make sure everyone in the family knows the name, address, and phone number of the contact person.
6. Help Your Community Get Ready
o Publish a special section in your local newspaper with emergency information on earthquakes. Localize the information by printing the phone numbers of local emergency services offices, the American Red Cross, and hospitals.
o Conduct a week-long series on locating hazards in the home.
o Work with local emergency services and American Red Cross officials to prepare special reports for people with mobility impairments on what to do during an earthquake.
o Provide tips on conducting earthquake drills in the home.
o Interview representatives of the gas, electric, and water companies about shutting off utilities.
o Work together in your community to apply your knowledge to building codes, retrofitting programs, hazard hunts, and neighborhood and family emergency plans.

Natal day of My New Friend;
dedicated to: Aljey De Joseph (Dec.1, 2010)
This Gift doesn't be so much expensive for me to dedicate this blog entry to my new friend Aljey. A simple notes and words of Thank you's and Hello's.
Maybe there's a wonder between how we know each other and how friendship starts over. However not a long story but i can say that there is a story behind.
As i remember it (November 4, 2010 - date i posted the Photo edited by me) Aljey added me as friend at Facebook, hm!? when he reads my comment at Czarina Catherine Gatbonton's Official Fanpage about my wish of goodluck for her Ms. World 2010 career, and i say "I will make her an official Photo Background of my Website". Maybe in my mind Aljey wonders, "This man have website?" that's why he added me. Not to detail the story, we've become friend not just at that time. A favor had been asks from him to edit the photo of his model John Arthur Dacera and as a response i edit the Pictures even in my un-pleasure time because i have a work but still i'm so happy to edit the pictures because somebody that asks for it that i don't really know who is. I do take my time and i made it and i felt so proud when he says its beautiful.
(Photos i edited for Aljey with his model John Arthur Dacera)
A little bit of quarrellings had fall between our conversation on chat (i uttered a wrong word that made him livid or angry), for me its only a joke but i did not think for him that he will get angry of it. He tells me that he will delete the photo's i edited. And i know its my fault and i beg but no response. I felt so sick, my eyes got teared and sigh a deep breath and said, "It's the first that happens to me on a social network". When i got home, i expect for positive response from him. I know I've got the blame-full situation coz I've uttered a troubled word. Came it morning, got to work again, my co-teacher told me that there is somebody who look for me and need to talk with me. I smiled for a while and said what he needs? and i noticed that its Aljey, well he explains that he did not erased the pictures he just save it flash drive and upload again. And my mind calms for a while, i just said! Thank you!. Then friendship starts, not to mention, more story had been takes on. He let me know some story of his life. And one of it is his past.
Somewhat like a childhood friend, Aljey tells me something. As in his past he becomes a "bi" (bisexual) a formal bi and as usual he feels alike but he admits it. But he also told me he'd changed. For sudden reason, he wants a new life. He have a good looking face, a well and nice being, friendly and trustworthy person. And i should say, it's good to changed himself but not the whole he is.
More wishes to be granted in your birthday Jey, and even you wish for a simple things, God knows your heart, HE will grant your wishes and dreams.
(Aljeys simple wish)
Before i close my my entry; the whole world can read this, and i think it will be my simple gift for you Aljey. It's a great gratitude for me to have a friend like you for even a short time and a distant place. I have a friend before that with familiarity with in you. But God take him to rest. Maybe he becomes the way i know you, he looks like you, he talks like you and the way you are is also the way he is. Friendship also does not need contracts, for i that's how i become friend in you. Even-though sometimes its hard for me to talk Cebuano coz definitely I'm ilonggo and speak only Cebuano sometimes. My words of more Thank You's will not end for the offer of friendship to you Aljey. You have a lot of friends and a meaningful life. It's just an effortless, for just me to express my words.
Happy birthday Aljey De Joseph; from the bottom of my Heart my friend i wish you more birthdays to come, more friends to know with, more dreams to be granted and always be God Blessed in your hopes and ways. When times you need somebody to talk with, i'm always free to listen and advice.
Happy Birthday ALJEY!!
always a friend: Michael
