Crucifixion

Para po sa ating pagninilay-nilay ngayong panahon ng kwaresma.....atin pong sariwain ang naging sakripisyo ni Jesus para sa akin, sa iyo, sa ating lahat.

At the age of 33, Jesus was condemned to the death penalty.

At the time crucifixion was the "worst" death. Only the worst criminals condemned to be crucified. Yet it was even more dreadful for Jesus, unlike other criminals condemned to death by crucifixion, Jesus was to be nailed to the cross by His hands and feet.

Each nail was 6 to 8 inches long.

The nails were driven into His wrist. Not into His palms as is commonly portrayed.There's a tendon in the wrist that extends to the shoulder.The Roman guards knew that when the nails were being hammered into the wrist, that tendon would tear and break, forcing Jesus to use His back muscles to support himself so that He could breathe.

Both of His feet were nailed together.Thus He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. Jesus could not support himself with His legs because of the pain, so He was forced to alternate between arching His back then using his legs just to continue to breathe. Imagine the struggle, the pain, the suffering, the courage.

Jesus endured this reality for over 3 hours.

Yes, over 3 hours!
Can you imagine this kind of suffering?
A few minutes before He died, Jesus stopped bleeding.
He was simply pouring water from his wounds.

From common images, we see wounds to His hands and feet and even the spear wound to His side...But do we realize His wounds were actually made in his body. A hammer driving large nails through the wrist, the feet overlapped and an even large nail hammered through the arches, then a Roman guard piercing His side with a spear.

But before the nails and the spear, Jesus was whipped and beaten. The whipping was so severe that it tore the flesh from His body. The beating so horrific that His face was torn and his beard ripped from His face. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Most men would not have survived this torture.

He had no more blood to bleed out, only water poured from His wounds. The human adult body contains about 3.5 liters (just less than a gallon) of blood.

Jesus poured all 3.5 liters of his blood; He had three nails hammered into His members; a crown of thorns on His head and, beyond that, a Roman soldier who stabbed a spear into His chest..

All these without mentioning the humiliation. He passed after carrying His own cross for almost 2 kilometers, while the crowd spat in his face and threw stones (the cross was almost 30 kg of weight, only for its higher part, where His hands were nailed).

Jesus had to endure this experience, so that we can have free access to God.

So that our sins could be "washed" away. All of them, with no exception! JESUS CHRIST DIED FOR US!

Katulad ng Valentine's Day o maging ng Pasko, ang panahong ito ang nagbibigay kahulugan sa PAGMAMAHAL. Ang dahilan ng pagmamahal na hindi batid ng karamihan.  Naitanong mo na ba sa iyong sarili kung bakit ka nagmamahal? At paano mo nasabing nagmamahal ka?


Nagmamahal ka dahil hindi sa mga dahilan. Isa itong biyaya na handog ng ating Dakilang Lumikha. Masasabi mong nagmamahal ka kung handa mong isakripisyo ang lahat ng mahalaga sayo o maging ang iyong sarili para sa kapwa mo. Crucifixion.

[note: Hindi po ako ang orihinal na may akda ng kwentong ukol sa crucifixion. Ito ay mula sa aking mga lumang email. Maraming Salamat sa pagbabasa]

Tanong Ko, Sagot Mo?

Tanong. Ang sabi nila, ang batang matanong ay batang nag-iisip.  Bibo ika nga ng karamihan.  Ngunit ang matandang matanong ay taong makulit o di kaya'y bobo din kung tawagin. Pero magkagayunman, wala naman masama sa magtanong at wala din naman masama kung hindi mo alam ang sagot sa tanong. Ang mahalaga naniniwala ka na ang lahat ng tanong na meron sa mundo ay may sagot.  Oo! Kahit na gaano pa yan kahirap o kahit hindi mo yun alam, lahat ng tanong na yan ay may sagot. Yun nga lang, posibleng ang sagot na yun ay maaaring tama at maaari ding mali. Pero tama man yun o mali, sagot pa din ang tawag dun. Kaya totoong lahat ng tanong ay may sagot.  Kalokohan yung mga eksena sa ligawan na "Pare, hindi nya ako sinagot...hindi daw nya ako gusto." Ang totoo sinagot ka nya, sinagot ka ng "HINDI".

Ano nga ba ang meron sa tanong? Walang meron sa tanong. Pero meron akong mga tanong na pwede din nyong bigyan ng sagot.  Tara sagot na!

  1. Bakit kapag nalaglag ang tinidor ay may lalaki daw na darating at kung kutsara naman babae daw ang bisita? Dahil ba ang lalaki ay mahilig manusok at ang babae ay mahilig sumubo?
  2. Alam natin na Silangan ang tawag kung saan sumisilang ang araw at Kanluran naman kung saan kumakanlong ang araw. Saan naman nanggaling ang Timog at Hilaga?
  3. Bakit ang tagalog ng bicycle ay biskleta at sa motorcycle naman ay motorsiklo? Bakit hindi naging bisiklo o motorsikleta?
  4. Alam natin na ang tagalog ng left-handed ay kaliwete, ano naman sa right-handed? Kananete?
  5. Kapag kaliwete ka, mahilig ka bang mangaliwa? Kung Kananete (*assume natin na may word ngang ganyan*) ka, mahilig ka bang kumana?
  6. Totoo bang tirahan ang tawag sa bahay na may nagtitirahan at tahanan naman kasi may tumatahan?
  7. Bakit may tagalog tayo sa four-seasons, tag-lamig, tagsibol, taglagas at tag-init, eh dalawa lang naman ang klima sa Pinas, tag-araw at tag-ulan lamang? Na-predict na ba na magkakaroon na tayo ng four-seasons?
  8. Kapag sinabi nating amoy-araw ka, lasang ipis, mukhang dyosa..totoo bang naamoy na natin ang araw? natikman ang ipis? at nakakita ng dyosa?
  9. Bakit ang tawag natin sa likod ng tuhod ay alak-alakan pero wala tayong tawag sa likod ng siko?
  10. Totoo bang walang utak ang biya?
  11. Ano ba ang tama, NAKAKAINIS o NAKAIINIS? Di ba ang dapat na inuulit ay ang unang pantig ng salitang-ugat?
  12. May ugat nga ba ang salita?
  13. Bakit hampaslupa ang tawag sa mahirap, eh ang mga mayayaman,  hampasbato?
  14. Sa mga di magandang salita ng Pinoy, sinasabi na ang ina ay PUTA, bakit walang amang PUTO? lahat ba ng kalapating babae ay mababa ang lipad? Eh ang mga lalaking kalapati mataas ba lumipad?
  15. Tama bang sabihin natin na isang SENTIMO at limang SENTIMOS? Kung ganun, tama din siguro na sabihin natin ang isang PISO at limang PISOS? O kaya naman isang Kamati at limang Kamatis? Yun nga lang meron bang ganyang turo sa balarilang Filipino/Tagalog ukol sa pagdudugtong ng "s" sa pangngalan?
  16. Bakit iba ang pagkakasalin ng mga salitang I LOVE YOU sa tagalog? Sa tagalog kasi nagiging simpleng "MAHAL KITA".  Totoo bang pinagsasanib ng pagmamahal ang I at You bilang isa kaya ito naging KITA?
  17. Kapag sinabi nating "abot langit ang tuwa", umaabot ba talaga sa langit ang ating tuwa?
  18. Bakit lahat ng daliri natin sa kamay ay may tawag, hinlalaki, hintuturo, hinlalato, palasingsingan at hinliliit, eh sa mga daliri sa paa, may iba pa ba tayong tawag?
  19. Kung ang tawag sa ama ay "haligi ng tahanan", at "ilaw ng tahanan" naman sa ina, bakit walang katumbas ang ama kung ang twag sa ina ay MAYBAHAY? Pwede ba nating tawagin ang ama na MAYTRABAHO?
  20.  Kaya ba ang tawag sa asawa ay "kabiyak" dahil pinag-isang dibdib na sila? Paano ang tawag sa mga naghiwalay, winasak na dibdib o kaya biniyak na dibdib?
May sagot ka na? Sige komento na! ^_^

Duality

An Atheist Professor of Philosophy was speaking to his Class on the Problem Science has With GOD, the ALMIGHTY. He asked one of his New Christian Students to stand and . . .

Professor: You are a Christian, aren't you, son ?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, you Believe in GOD ?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Professor: Is GOD Good ?
Student: Sure.
Professor: Is GOD ALL - POWERFUL ?
Student: Yes.
Professor: My Brother died of Cancer even though he Prayed to GOD to Heal him. Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But GOD didn't. How is this GOD good then? Hmm?

(Student was silent )

Professor: You can't answer, can you ? Let's start again, Young Fella. Is GOD Good?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Is Satan good ?
Student: No.
Professor: Where does Satan come from ?
Student: From . . . GOD . . .
Professor: That's right. Tell me son, is there evil in this World?
Student: Yes.
Professor: Evil is everywhere, isn't it ? And GOD did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.
Professor: So who created evil ?

(Student did not answer)
Professor: Is there Sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the World, don't they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Professor: So, who Created them ?

(Student had no answer)

Professor: Science says you have 5 Senses you use to Identify and Observe the World around you. Tell me, son ...Have you ever Seen GOD?
Student: No, sir.
Professor: Tell us if you have ever Heard your GOD?
Student: No , sir.
Professor: Have you ever Felt your GOD , Tasted your GOD , Smelt your GOD ? Have you ever had any Sensory Perception of GOD for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I'm afraid I haven't.
Professor: Yet you still Believe in HIM?
Student: Yes.
Professor: According to Empirical, Testable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says your GOD doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my Faith.
Professor: Yes, Faith. And that is the Problem Science has.

Student: Professor, is there such a thing as Heat?
Professor: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as Cold?
Professor: Yes.
Student: No, sir. There isn't..

(The Lecture Theatre became very quiet with this turn of events )

Student: Sir, you can have Lots of Heat, even More Heat, Superheat, Mega Heat, White Heat, a Little Heat or No Heat. But we don't have anything called Cold. We can hit 458 Degrees below Zero which is No Heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as Cold. Cold is only a Word we use to describe the Absence of Heat. We cannot Measure Cold. Heat is Energy. Cold is Not the Opposite of Heat, sir, just the Absence of it.

(There was Pin-Drop Silence in the Lecture Theatre )

Student: What about Darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as Darkness?
Professor: Yes. What is Night if there isn't Darkness?
Student: You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is the Absence of Something. You can have Low Light, Normal Light, Bright Light, Flashing Light . . . But if you have No Light constantly, you have nothing and its called Darkness, isn't it? In reality, Darkness isn't. If it is, were you would be able to make Darkness Darker, wouldn't you?
Professor: So what is the point you are making, Young Man ?
Student: Sir, my point is your Philosophical Premise is flawed.
Professor: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the Premise of Duality. You argue there is Life and then there is Death, a Good GOD and a Bad GOD. You are viewing the Concept of GOD as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, Science can't even explain a Thought. It uses Electricity and Magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view Death as the Opposite of Life is to be ignorant of the fact that Death cannot exist as a Substantive Thing.Death is Not the Opposite of Life: just the Absence of it. Now tell me, Professor, do you teach your Students that they evolved from a Monkey?
Professor: If you are referring to the Natural Evolutionary Process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed Evolution with your own eyes, sir?

(The Professor shook his head with a Smile, beginning to realize where the Argument was going )

Student: Since no one has ever observed the Process of Evolution at work and Cannot even prove that this Process is an On-Going Endeavor, Are you not teaching your Opinion, sir? Are you not a Scientist but a Preacher?

(The Class was in Uproar )

Student: Is there anyone in the Class who has ever seen the Professor's Brain?

(The Class broke out into Laughter )

Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor's Brain, Felt it, touched or Smelt it? . . .No one appears to have done so. So, according to the Established Rules of Empirical, Stable, Demonstrable Protocol, Science says that You have No Brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then Trust your Lectures, sir?

(The Room was Silent. The Professor stared at the Student, his face unfathomable)

Professor: I guess you'll have to take them on Faith, son.
Student : That is it sir . . . Exactly ! The Link between Man and GOD is FAITH. That is all that Keeps Things Alive and Moving.

[note: Hindi po ako ang orihinal na may akda ng argumentong ito. Ang lahat pong ito ay mula sa aking mga lumang email na natanggap noong taong 2007. Nawa'y nagustuhan nyo po ang talakayang ito...]
