My country, the Philippines had just been devastated by Haiyan, leaving much of the Southern part of our region a wasteland and death is everywhere. To read these kinds of defamation and hateful pieces of articles are disgusting and goes against what I hold dear. It is insulting to a people who, at their lowest is still being trampled down and humiliated.

The writer of these blogs had sadly missed the point of salvation. It is these kinds of so called Christians that gives Christianity and Jesus Christ a very bad name. I twitch, reading lines of hate in the name of heathen name calling and “I will pray for you sinners”, all in one breath.
God in His mercy didn’t strike the whole planet the second time when His Son was crucified. He could’ve had, but it would have defeated the purpose…and the purpose was to save the lost, the mean ones, the bullies, the beautiful people, the castaways, you and me.
In writing these blog entries, that writer had sown hatred, not love. Like the Pharisees of old, his heart is so far away from the Lord he professed to serve. Remember that it was them who were itching to cast the first stone at the prostitute. Jesus was on the other side. He was with her in compassion and saving grace.
What he has shown is an abuse of Grace that is precious. As a professing Christian, he had not done his part in bringing people to Jesus, in fact he had done the very opposite.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ and my heart is crushed. My countrymen in those devastated areas are without food, shelter and basic necessities. Most of their loved ones are missing or dead. To write those things from your high pulpit is the height of religious hypocrisy.
