For the Sake of Fairness and Logic

10/15/2016 , 57 Comments


A common expression "for the sake of" invites a deeper thinking and reasoning. There are statements that are introduced by "for the sake of......." that should be looked into for that requires sacrifice. "For the sake of peace" or "to buy peace" sometimes entails forgiveness, understanding, leniency, letting go, etc. The Bible tells us to practice sacrifice of pride to attain something divine or human.

I CORINTHIANS 6:7 
Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?

The expression "to err is human but to forgive divine" suggests the letting go of pride and self sacrifice. Actually, biblically speaking, to err is not only human because even angels with superior strength and understanding have erred.

II PETER 2:4, 11 
4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 
11 Whereas angels, which are greater in power and might, bring not railing accusation against them before the Lord.

Pioneer in committing all errors was the angel who turned to be satan. Satan means arch enemy of God.

ISAIAH 14:12-14 
12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 
13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

Biblically speaking, not only humans do err but even angels. But then not forgiving doesn't necessarily mean the act is not divine for God did not forgive the angels that sinned against Him.

II PETER 2:4 
For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;

Not all transgressions or sins are pardonable. There are sins when committed intentionally do not merit mercy.

HEBREWS 10:26-27 
26 For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 
27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

I have read a recent article written by a Catholic Filipino in the US, particularly in the state of California, saying that what is happening in the Philippines is evil because of extra judicial killings. Almost everyone seems to be recklessly using the term "extra judicial killings" to condemn the present government.

Which is more evil, criminals are being killed or criminals are being cuddled?

THE ROMANS 1:32 
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Have these Catholic priests and members bravely spoken also in the past against these drug perpetrators?

What is noteworthy is, why are these self-righteous talkatives silent when drug addicts killed their young, their parents, their relatives and even authorities, who sacrifice their lives to arrest these criminals, that wrought havoc not only to the entire nation but also to the entire world? And why are all the criminalities associated with drugs not as exposed and highlighted as they are now. Must it mean that there are those who pay the media to sensationalize the alleged "extra judicial killings" to unseat Duterte?!!!

And must it mean also that the "silence" that have passed and that the ongoing "noise" now are orchestrated by these same people playing their instruments under the baton of those who profit most in drugs?!!! A thinking mind (not Dutertards), I believe, must be asking these questions.

All these I ask is "for the sake of justice and fairness" now that the Senate Committee on Justice and Human Rights have absolved the government of President Duterte on extra judicial killings,

Rody absolved by Senate panel on killings – Palace 
By Christina Mendez (The Philippine Star) | Updated October 16, 2016 - 12:00am 

Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said the Senate committee on justice and human rights, chaired by Sen. Richard Gordon, has cleared Duterte of any liability in extralegal killings when it wrapped up its probe on Thursday. 

“The recently concluded investigation by the Senate panel on alleged summary executions of crime suspects absolved President Duterte of any involvement in the killings when he was still mayor and now that he is President,” Abella said. 

The Senate’s official report will be presented tomorrow, Abella said. 

“There is no proof that the killings were state-sponsored,” Abella quoted Gordon as saying.

I expect to hear more attacks and noises, both internationally and locally, against the present government. I am reiterating this to those stupid critics of my blog that I am not in defense of President Duterte! May your stupidity be known unto all men.

Let us have a comparison. Which do you prefer or classify as good news?

1. Manufacturers and suppliers of illegal drugs being killed because they resisted arrest; or

2. A son being killed by his father because his father is a drug addict; or

3. A son killed by his mother killed by his mother because his mother is a drug addict; or

4. A husband killing his own wife because her husband is a drug addict; or

5. A religious group cuddling drug peddlers because of money;

The choice is yours.

May your conscience guide you.

  4. It's time to embrace the reality that criminals must be punished whether they have or without names in the coutry for the sake of people who are wanting to live peacefully. Filipinos deserves a safe and a nonviolence country.

  5. I am just speaking for myself. I think our president's serious crackdown on drugs is commendable because his courage and will to tackle this deeply rooted problem is unprecedented in Philippine history. I am just thankful that high-ranking government and police officials involved are being exposed and an increasing number of addicts are considering changing their ways.

  7. I totally agree with mr controversy. More often than not, they misuse the praise'for the sake of' and make it sound like they do it right. I choose the first one among the given choices.
    More power to you and your blog. I'm a fan. God bless... :)

  9. I live in Metro Manila and I can say that it is safer to walk in the streets now than before.

    Because people now know that if someone does something bad, law enforcement will do their job.

    May God bless the Philippines.

  12. In my opinion, some media people wrote news or broadcasted news undermining whether their news were good or bad, not for the sake of fairness and logic, but for the sake and greed of money that their payors or sponsors gave them. Sponsors will do anything to discredit their competitors or any body who interrupt profitability and continuity of their business by using irresponsible journalists and irresponsible news reporting locally and foreign. Thanks be to God for Bro. Eli's blog.

  16. It's quite funny that some senator create some law to protect the drug addicts,drug lord, criminals etc. That so called human right thing they protest always. And the police must give warning before they act and use some non lethal weapon so that the scums wilk survive.

  17. Points to ponder about and ask yourselves the questions raised in this Blog. Answer the questions then later evaluate your position - are you logically fair, fairly logical or beyond logic finding your answers unfair. Examine your conscience before any final conclusion is done and convince yourself that you are a logically fair reader.

  23. The present administration is very serious on its drug and criminality campaign which president Duterte has really a good intention for its nation and for its future generation. But despite that many hindrances appear infront of him, they don't see what is the good benefits for all of us disregard for those who only wants is for their own sake.

  24. Very insightful!!! Thank you Mr. Controversy for giving light to this issue. God bless the Philippines.

  25. The present government under president DU30 merely unveils the facts that past administrations either ignore or become a part of the drug syndicates and its domain while serving in fear to the Filipino people. I think that this matter is true. Whatever the president decides today is under GOD'S permission to deter proliferation of evil im our land. I choose this is better now than before.

    2. A son being killed by his father because his father is a drug addict; or

    3. A son killed by his mother killed by his mother because his mother is a drug addict; or

    4. A husband killing his own wife because her husband is a drug addict; or

  32. This story in the bible about Noah when 8 people left alive after GOD punished the first world, what do you think with it? Does anyone in the angels including Satan himself voice out extra-judicial killings against GOD. Of course you may think that's different. DU30 is not GOD. But here's one thing I believe that GOD never change. He punishes and acts on time. I'll just stop here. We have a brother that we get our understanding.

  33. It seems that there is more than just insinuating Extra Judicial Killings to destabilize the present administration. Cohorts of Satan is working now and not be surprised religious organization is the proponent.
