    A woman devotee was asked why she’s joining the procession.  Her answer was because her cholesterol was high.  OMG, why does she not just cut down on her meat consumption?  What can the Black Nazarene do to her cholesterol if she doesn’t watch out what she eats?

    • tagatabas

       leave her alone

      • batangpaslit

        so, you will let her wallow in wrong beliefs?

      • BLITZKRIEG166

        ogag, ogag, ogag, si batang paslit

    • kimo211

      problema  niya  yan,,,none  of  your  business,,,,igalang   mo  naman  ang  paniniwala  nang  ibang  tao,  para  igalang  ka   rin.

      • batangpaslit

        paano kung mali?
        kahit ba mali hindi mo punain ang mali para matulongan ang kapuwa nilikha mo?

      • BLITZKRIEG166

        ogag ka boy. hindi mo talaga alam ang mga sinasabi mo…..ogag ka talaga

        Mali ka batangpaslit, kung ang sarili mo nga di mo kayang tulungan ang pag-alala mo pa sa kapwa ang naiisip mo… Ang pagtulong ay bukal sa loob hindi ang paghusga sa kanyang kapwa. Bigyan kita ng isang halimbawa meron ikaw naman siguro ikaw minamahal, at matagal kayong nawalay ngunit ang tanging ala-ala na naiwan sa iyo ay ang larawang kupas. Tinitingnan mo at iniiyakan sapagkat namimiss mo na ang iyong minamahal. Tanong ko lang di mo ba hinahagkan ang kupas na larawan ng iyong minamahal. :-)

    • batangpaslit

      the carved out wood Black Nazarene can do nothing
      what can a dead wood do for others?
      the graven image of Black Nazarene, which has ears but could not even hear, how could it offer aid to the living?
      the true Living GOD that desires to be worship in spirit and in truth, can.

        ogag, demonyo ka boy

    Idol worship is forbidden in the 10 Commandments.

    • rayingga

       Intindihin mo na lang ay ang sarili mong kaligtasan, You are not the one to judge the living and the dead.

      • batangpaslit

        Ray, matanong kita.
        Ano ang kailangan para maligtas ka at hindi mapunta ang kaluluwa mo sa Impierno kung saan ang nagbabagang Lawa ng Asupreng Apoy ay nagliliyab ng walang hanggan?
        Ang pagsamba sa mga diyos-diyosan ay kontra sa tunay na pananampalataya sa tunay na DIOS ng sanlibutan.
        Kung sino man ang sumasamba sa diyos-diyosan ay hindi makarating sa Langit.
        Read the inspired written Word of GOD and see for yourself how the idol worshippers would be judged into condemnation to Hell
        Find time to read the Book of Hebrews and Revelation Chapter 17

        ogag ka boy…….alagad ka ni satanas, malapit kana mag iingat ka bwaaahahahaha

        You are fool batangpaslit… Mangaral ka sa bangketa kung may makikinig sayo. Tanga lang ang makikinig sayo… Natuto ka lang magbasa ng Bible kala mo na kung sino kang Ponsyo Pilato.

      • Cruxofthematter

         If we read the Bible, it does not mean we hate. We read because it is mandated that MAN should read to know about God. Now, where does that put you? We are not condemning. We are only quoting what is written.

         eto na ka naman, BIBLE QUOTER NA MAY UTAK ” MAS BANAL AKO SA INYO” gaya ng PARISEO SA TEMPLO HABANG TINUTUYA ANG PUBLIKANO

      • Cruxofthematter

         So what Jesus said in John 3:16 is useless and cannot be relied? So we cannot rely on Jesus Christ? When he said shall not perish, it is not saying or judging, we take the Savior at His Word!

    • batangpaslit

      how true….i trust the parishioneers of the Roman Catholic Church would examine the inspired written Word of GOD and see for themselves how to properly worship the true Living GOD

      • BLITZKRIEG166

        ogag ka talaga boy, hindi mo alam ang pinagsasabi mo, tigilan mo ang pag advertise ng bulaan mong relihiyon…heheheh ogag

  • batangpaslit

    why are the people worshipping a wooden idol—a false god?a god, carved out from wood with human image, with ears but could not hear?with feet but could not walk; with eyes but could not see?why are Filipinos worsipping a graven image of god carved out from log, which shavings are thrown into the garbage, or used as firewooda god made by man misrepresenting the image of the true Living GOD who desires to be worship in spirit and in truththe Scriptures say GOD must be worship in the spirit and in truth. Jesus Christ is the Truth.true Christians do not walk by sight, but walks by faith

      We Catholics do not meddle with your affairs. We respect your ideologies, belief system, and matters of faith. Bakit palaging mga Katoliko ang tinutuglisa ninyo? May iba pang mga relihiyon (ie Buddhism, Hinduism). May mga tao ngang walang pinapaniwalaang Diyos. Kailangan bang maghatakan, mag siraan, at magbatuhan? If you find peace in reading the Holy Bible every now and then, then that’s good. But do not make it an act to instill your belief on others.

      At pahabol parekoy, kung hindi mo naman maibabahagi ang iyong saluobin sa wikang Ingles na mahusay, managalog ka na lang. Napaka-pretentious lang.

      • Cruxofthematter

         Really? Catholicism did not meddle with true Christianity? Read again. Inquisition of the Dark Ages and be informed.

      • JunPyo123

        Dude, we are talking about contemporary times. May mga Kristiyanong grupo na ba nung Dark Ages katulad ng mga kapatid nating Born Again, INC, at kung anong grupo man ang kinakatawan ni ‘batangpaslit?’ 

        Katoliko ako at alam ko ang Inquisition. And I know that’s a dark moment of RC’s history. 

      • Cruxofthematter

        Thats good you know. Now this – Pope Pius XII and the holocaust – just goggle it.

      • JunPyo123

        Take note that varying interpretations of what had transpired during Pius XII’s post and the Holocaust led to disputes. Different perspectives. And if you are referring to the ‘conversion of Jews to Catholicism,’ take note that those were difficult times and, on my personal belief, much consideration was made for that.

        Anyway, I am in no position (or even interest) to exchange discussions with you about such matters. Catholicism have imperfections. I, being a Catholic, is aware of that. If your purpose of this is to indirectly attack the RC, if it pleases you, then go.

        Sabi ko nga sa naunang post ko, kung ano man ang belief system, ideyolohiya, at mga paniniwala ninyo sa pananampalataya, nirerespeto ko yan.

    If in many parts of India, they allow cows to roam around even excrementing in all places. In the Philippines, a piece of wood is dressed up, pushed, pulled, wiped, craved, weeped for, given devotion. Which one is better?
