How would you love an enemy?

In this century, many of our morals and values have been compromised that people (even with strong Christian stance) have a tendency to bend over gray areas-one of which is WAR.

This is something that you don’t usually talk about during get-togethers with Christians, discussions about Christian faith, and the like; but it is equally important that we discuss them openly.

We’ve just finished studying 1st Peter (and before that, James) and watching this film has made me visualize what our brothers and sisters had to go through during the early times of Christianity. Yet, the church endured several persecutions at the hands of the Roman Empire itself without ever considering taking up the sword against their aggressors.

Now isn’t it ironic that we go to war to achieve peace? That violence has become a substantial method to gain pacification?

One person braved to find the answer, and in his search created this documentary.

I believe the God I’m worshipping and serving is a God of balance and order… He is the Prince of Peace-God of War.

Made my heart beat again… yes. :)

When I heard him singing this, I instantly fell in love. Parang ang sarap nyang yakapin… aaaw. *swoon*

No, seriously—they’re good. Alejandro’s voice is amazing. And they get extra brownie points from me for covering Coldplay (because I love them too!).

I can’t stop listening to them—no, him haha! Major crush alert! 🙂

Bullets…

I just got home from a very insightful (if I must say) night… thank you!

Ok now, bullets —

  • Burning a good 50+ CDs can really frustrate a person.
  • Happiness for me now is Chicken McNuggets. Gah, I’m pathetic.
  • I will adopt a kid. Seriously.
  • I still get scared of people who claim Jesus appeared to them. Kilabutan nga kayo!
  • I’ve proven that men and women are selfish. Even in the slightest way, they want to be recognized.
  • Reproductive Health Bill? Let me quote my friend, “There’s nothing wrong w/ it, it’s a question of people being responsible of their reproductive organs.” (or to that effect) HAHAHA!
  • Just to stress… I will never get married, adopt a kid and live abroad. Yes that’s my 3-year plan.
  • Soft-skin crab salad at Fish & Co. is heavenly.
  • Eagle Eye is a good movie—a ‘good’ rating from me is it’s-ok-while-it-lasted-and-I’d-forget-it-in- the-morning kind of film–really it is. But there’s always an exception, and this movie is one. Because of the cheesy ending, I discovered…
  • …I’ve turned into someone I do not want to become.

This is the downside of being in pain–you become love skeptic, as much as you try not to be.

There are more bullets in my head now but let me just leave you with that for the mean time.
