‘God instituted death penalty to crush evil, uphold good’

Biblical accounts tell us that God Himself resorted to the penalty of death as a method of eliminating evil among men. Take the Noah’s Ark story. For the transgressions of men, God flooded the earth for 40 days and nights, sparing only Noah’s family because of its righteousness.

Fighting against God

By

Poverty rates remain very high in the Philippines, despite its recent economic successes. As in other countries, the rich, and the rich alone, have benefited from economic growth. Some of the country’s children have all the food, comfort, education opportunities, recreation and travel they need, while others, the greater number, are hungry, often stunted, live in crowded, violent neighborhoods, and can’t benefit from school because they are often hungry, lethargic and unmotivated.

In God’s own terms and time

By

The story is told about a couple in their 60s who were visited by a fairy, who told them to wish for anything and it would be granted. The wife wished for a world cruise with her husband—and poof! Two tickets were in her hands. The husband wished to have a wife 30 years younger than he—and poof! He became 92 years old.

Blind obedience disables conscience

God is not doing His job

By

Sayra has lived all her life on a small patch of sidewalk in downtown Calcutta, now called Kolkata. I interviewed her 23 years ago for a book on Asia’s urban poor. I looked for her in the intervening years, but I could never find her until just last April. She still lives on that patch [...]
