Filipinos constantly bow down and pray to graven images/idols. They have idolized this “Santo Nino”
The Ten Commandments
Exodus 20: 1-17 in the Bible
1 And God spoke all these words:
2 “I am the Lordyour God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
3 “You shall have no other gods before me.
4 “You shall not make for yourself any graven image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lordyour God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
7 “You shall not misuse the name of the Lordyour God, for theLordwill not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
8 “Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. 9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 10 but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lordyour God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns.11 For in six days the Lordmade the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the Lordblessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.
12“Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lordyour God is giving you.
13“You shall not murder.
14“You shall not commit adultery.
15“You shall not steal.
16“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
17“You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
A CONVERSATION WITH A FILIPINO CATHOLIC
Published in Blatant Stupidiy, Filipino Stupidity, Religion
ME: Do you believe in the bible?
ME: Do you believe and obey the 10 commandments in the bible?
ME: Do you believe especially in the 2nd Commandment?
FILIPINO: Of course, I believe all the commandments of god.
ME: Do you bow down and pray to graven images of Santo Nino?
Filipina stupidly and ignorantly violating the Commandment of the god she “fears”.
FILIPINO: Yes, that is a part of our religion.
Filipinos ignorantly and stupidly in direct violation of the Commandment of their god.
ME: Then you really DON’T believe in the 2nd Commandment.
FILIPINO: Why you say that? What is the 2nd Commandment?
ME: So you believe what you don’t even know? How can you believe in something you are clueless about???
FILIPINO: It’s my faith
ME: Ignorance and stupidity is your faith? Do you fear god enough to at least know his commandments? Or is saying “I’m a god fearing person” just a catchy phrase that mindlessly flows out of your mouth? I would think if you really “fear god”, you would AT LEAST know his commandments!
