THE JAMES-KRIS BREAK-UP COULD HAVE BEEN AVOIDED: The James Yap-Kris Aquino break-up sure looks to be something that could have been prevented from happening, if only the parties involved tried to bite their lips harder when they were quarelling and having a spat.
As it is, Filipino husbands and wives---and this includes James and Kris, obviously---do not really know how to control emotions and, worst of all, their tounges in times of trouble, saying many things that would scar them forever, even if they did not really mean what have been said.
Perhaps, Filipino husbands and wives---and this again includes James and Kris---should try to read what the Bible says about controlling the tounge, and thereby profit from it immensely.
JAMES 3:3-12 OF THE BIBLE SAYS WE MUST CONTROL OUR TOUNGES: The Bible, in its James 3:3-12, has this to say about controlling the tounge: “When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go.
“Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
“All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness.
“Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water....”
WHAT IS REP. LOCSIN UP TO IN DISCREDING THE MAY ELECTIONS?Just what is former Makati City Rep. Teodoro “Boy” Locsin up to, in his recent remarks that theMay 2010 elections was marred by fraud and cheating, and that he would oppose the use of automation in the coming elections if loopholes in the computerized system are not remedied?
Surely, an accusation coming from him that the recent political exercise was tainted by computerized fraud can only raise doubts about the election of President Benigno Aquino III and Vice President Jejomar Binay, and all those who have been proclaimed by the Commission on Elections and are starting their terms now.
Is Locsin saying that President Aquino should not be allowed to assume the presidency because the election in which he was voted upon lacks credibility?
Is he not the same Locsin that served President Aquino’s own mother in 1986 to 1992? Why is he trying to discredit the electoral exercise that allowed the son to follow in the footsteps of the mother that Locsin also served?
