As Christians (Catholics for one),we are all raise up to glorify the name of the Only God, The Holy Father above all names. For this matter, no one in this country (I believe so) that was born atheist. Everyone has taught that there is Someone Most Powerful Up There.
With this thoughts, I would like to presume that people has been taught in their early lives to fear for that Someone who is invisible. I for example is afraid to do devilish acts even if there’s no one watching because of this teaching. As a child, we were taught not to do acts against anyone even if no one’s watching because He is everywhere at any time. No one escapes His hearing and seeing and feeling. In our country like ours who is known to be religious and church (fanatics), I would like to think nominal devilish acts.
But I was wrong because all around me especially government people (public officials) are the most evil, corrupt, liars and all negative characterizations you can name. Sad fact. These people are supposed to lead the nation into a better place to live in, maintain peace and above all LOVE but are the ones to divide this nation into troublesome and chaotic place to live.
Government people top notched to be crooks. Make people suffer and starved to death. Take away the right to a decent life of farmers,fisherfolks,workers and all other sectors in a society.
In effect, ordinary citizens tend to be liars,cheaters,and traitors to each other. You can rarely find a person to be truthful, faithful and honest. For these observations, I am inclined to believe that there is indeed a famous “Pandora’s box” and has opened up.
And this is exactly the message of lent want to bring to light to each and every one of us. Live a truthful, faithful, peaceful and decent life even if others won’t. Pray for yourself so to others to be happy even if others don’t. Strive to spread the word of God even if others won’t…
