    Bro. Elman:

    I hope in God´s permission that your Blog, the https://elmantheman.wordpress.com/ will soon be nominated to the next season of the web awards. It will be the 11th Philippine Web Awards. I´m just wondering why that the Most Sensible Weblog in the globe, the http://esoriano.wordpress.com/, was not included in the said awarding.

    I hope that instead of giving the award to a nobody´s nothing but a senseless blog, why not give it to the no-nonsense Blog like Bro. Eli´s and your´s. I have tried visting to the award winning blog for the BLOG CATEGORY and I found it nonsense and self-opinionated blog having the religious inclination to the Mother of Harlots and Abominations. It is very obvious that the messages being posted are self-base opinion and unBiblical.

    If Bro. Eli´s blog is visited by athiests and Biblically heretics mounted like mushrooms and the more that such blog is surrounded and patronized by them. Imagine, a brood named Quiel posted comments based on the Biblical doctrines of Christ having verses quotations from the Bible is called a “HIJACKER” and “LIAR” for no reasons at all. He is imputed with much LIES and ACCUSATIONS which he never said on his posted comments. It is really true that in all nooks and corners of the world there are evils (Ecclesiastes 3:16)

    Allow me to post here a sample post from such award winning blog using this link:

    http://aboutmyrecovery.com/2007/11/10/suicide-media-and-the-catholic-church/#comments

    MY VERY POSTED COMMENT:

    >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    Hello Miss Noemi,

    I wish you sound mind and good health!

    First and foremost, I would like to commend on your blog for its veriloquence and interesting format and style. Please allow me to post these Comments and Reactions (I may sound reactive but anyways) of mine as follows:

    1. Focus on poverty situation is one-sided. Almost all the news and blogs talk on poverty or blaming the government (except for news reported here and here). What about the suicide awareness and prevention?

    * I strongly agree that its a one-sided thing to focus only on poverty situation. Most of our media are biased and partial contrary to what their banner´s theme and flags are saying like “Walang kinikilingan, Walang pinoprotektahan, Serbisyoung totoo lamang…(Taking side to no one, Protecting no one, but truly on the true service…)” of GMA7 and “Panig sa Katotohanan, Panig sa Bayan…(Siding on the Truth, Siding to the People…) ” of ABS-CBN. The reality is they are protecting their very interests for profits and also some other organizations and personalities in showbiz and politics. What they are bringing out are erzats public service and superficial public information. These two competing giants in Broadcast are in several times proved for their partiality and biases in the death of FPJ, Rico Yan issues, the Ultra Stamped for instance. What they have provided to the public are the sensationalized news, views and opinion, features and programs.

    2.Suicide is an illness, not a sin… Fr. Zenon Ampong, their parish priest in Davao is uncertain about the request of the family of Mariannet for her to be brought to the church for funeral rites citing the policy of the Catholic Church on suicide. Not all Catholic priests are like Fr. Ampong. I bet he is the same type of priest who refuses to bless the dead if the death is caused by suicide but bless cars, pigs, houses… what hypocrisy! May Mariannet rest in peace even without that priest’ blessing.

    ** It is very useless if we still believe on the blessing things of the dead. Dead is dead anyways. Dead people can´t do nothing nor the living can´t do favors for them nor could be of help to the dead peoples´ salvation. It is for the reason that the dead people´s history ended at their respective tombs. They know nothing nor the place they are going. They are of realm of oblivion. They have no awareness nor consciousness on the things under the sun. (Ecclesiastes 9:5-6)
    ____________________
    “5For the living know that they shall die: but the dead KNOW NOT ANY THING, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.
    6Also their love, and their hatred, and their envy, is now perished; neither have they any more a portion for ever in any thing that is done under the sun.” (KJV) ____

    Prayers for the dead, flower offerings, even praises, appreciations , absolution to them and for them and best presents and tombs made for them are all useless for those things are of no value for them that are lifeless and at peace. Those things offered and done to the dead are acts of HYPOCRISY (Matthew 23:27, 29-30)
    ____________________
    “27Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness.
    29Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and garnish the sepulchres of the righteous,
    30And say, If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partakers with them in the blood of the prophets.” (KJV) _____

    and UNGODLINESS and ABOMINATIONS to God Almighty.

    ** With due respect to everyone, I frankly assert that such statement and I quote saying “Suicide is an illness, not a sin..” is a misinformation and a disinformation statement. It is a big misinformation because it misleas the people to believe the things that are contrary to the Biblical doctrine s on the sanctity of life. God as the giver of life in no way give us the reason or the right to take away our very life nor other peoples’ life. Instead, everyone is impel to value and protect LIFE in all its meaning and to live life to the fullest that everyone can do and have. The sixth of the Ten Commandments says (Deuteronomy 5:17)
    ___________________
    “17Thou shalt not kill.” (KJV) ____

    This God´s pronouncement is a general principle. It doesn´t just cover the taking off the life of other people/s but also of one´s life. This principle was enhanced by Jesus Christ on the highest level and grounds on his second great commandment (Matthew 22:39)
    ___________________
    “39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt LOVE thy neighbour as THYSELF.” (KJV) ____

    Loving oneself is tantamount to loving one´s life and protecting it from any danger, pain, discomfort, etc. not unless your a sadist. It is very illogical to think that killing oneself due to severe impoverish is an act of loving oneself and is a noble act of freeing oneself from miseries, difficulties, sacrifices, etc. Even our Constitution backs up the Biblical principle on the life´s sacredness (Art. III Sec. 1 of the Bill of Rights)
    _________________
    “Section 1. NO PERSON SHALL BE DEPRIVED OF LIFE, liberty, or property without due process of law, nor shall any person be denied the equal protection of the laws.” (1987 Philippine Constitution) ____

    It´s only God – the giver of life – (Genesis 2:7)
    _________________
    “7And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of LIFE; and man became a living soul.” (KJV) ____

    alone can take the life of a person (Deuteronomy 32:39)
    _________________
    “39See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I KILL, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.” (KJV) ____

    3.Cluster Suicides or copy-cat suicides. Television, newspaper or radio coverage of suicide (or exposure to a recent suicide or suicide attempt in the community) can serve as a trigger for vulnerable adolescents to act on suicidal thoughts and plans. This is what is termed as “cluster suicides.” Media reports that concentrate solely on the method used and ignore the emotional backdrop behind it can tend to encourage copy-cat suicides.

    *** Many people nowadays resorted to suicide due to their unbelief, ungodliness and the absence of Biblical God to their life. They do not even know what really is the true definition of life that´s why they committed suicide. Many scholars and the so-called great authors of the best-selling books existing in the face of the globe attempted to explain and answer the rudimentary queries of man on the essential and true meaning of L-I-F-E but they all failed. There are recorded accounts and biographies of considered intellectuals and learned institutions and societies by the human societies and standards who spent their lifetime to find for the satisfying and concrete meaning of life but ended their very life frustrated. Many of them went on hermitage, pilgrimage and scientific experimentation, inventions of sophisticated technological gadgets and formulation of the so-called “wonder medicines” to prolong or somehow extend man’s life but they were all total disappointed with the repercussions of their feat and quests. Most of their answers in the form of theories, concepts, theses, hypotheses, antitheses, syntheses, analysises and considerable facts are found erroneous and considered baseless, impractical, contradicting, controverting and assumptive when compared to the Biblical Truths written in the Bible which are now being disclosed to His people and to the world by the Heavensent.

    If you want to know and understand deeper the real essence of life in its entirety, please visit this posted article on the best BLOG I´v ever known that makes a breviloquent presentation of the general worldviews on life and the concise Bible truths:

    http://esoriano.wordpress.com/category/life/

    Such post delves deeper on life’s ultimate meaning and purpose, and how could someone achieve the common phrase “living life to the fullest.”

    *** What people drive to take suicide is more on the spiritual than mental problems. I would rather believe and obey what the God of the Bible has said and commanded than believing and obeying men, (Acts 5:29)
    __________________
    “29Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.” (KJV) ____

    their man-made philisophies and traditions. (Colossians 2:8)
    __________________
    “8Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ..” (KJV) ____

    I say more on the spiritual aspectc because Satan, the prince of all evil spirits is the greatest murder since from the start of the immemorial times. (John 8:44)
    ___________________
    “44Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a MURDERER FROM THE BEINNING, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (KJV) ____

    Satan is like a roaring lion that seeks his possible victims 25/8 (twenty-five hours a day,eight days a week). (1 Peter 5:8)
    ___________________
    “8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” (KJV) ___

    He is on his greatest anger to the humakind that is why he is on his overtime working and operations for he knows that his shortest time is at hand. (Revelation 12:12)
    ___________________
    “12Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the DEVIL is come down unto you, having GREAT WRATH, because he knoweth that HE HATH BUT A SHORT TIME.” (KJV) ____

    and made more and more victims. One of his deceiving devices is suicide. And after finding his probable victims, satan will now blind the mind of his victims that will lead to suicide. (2 Corinthians 4:4)
    ____________________
    “4In whom the GOD OF THIS WORLD hath BLINDED THE MINDS the minds of them which BELIEV NOT, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.” (KJV) ____

    Evil spirits are the intruders of suicidal attitude of those suicidals. And believe it or not, spirits are reality. Many people don´t believe the existence of the spirits and the spirit world. They are everywhere, in all places in this world (Ephesians 6:12)
    ___________________
    “12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES.” (KJV) ____

    4.Suicide is not an individual problem… it is a community problem and requires a community response.. You save another life, if you are able to better identify causes and symptoms of suicide. Most suicide victims are crying for our help. We need to know how to listen. That’s why I have to emphasize on the need for parents, teachers, educators and government to be aware on Suicide Prevention. Educate our community that suicide is a preventable public health problem.

    **** I believe in the first place to the idea stated above saying, “Suicide is not an individual problem… it is a community problem and requires a community response..” At the first glance, it sounds correct. But if you will take a closer look at it, you will realize that it is a half truth. WhyI say HALF TRUTH? Because the most responsible and acountable concern to this epidemic concurrence and menace in our society is the religious affairs. Allow me to quote and reiterate the statement of one of the commentor name Quiel and I quote saying;

    _______________________________________________________________________
    “I still strongly believe that what happened to the poor child is not a GENERALLY EPHEMERAL issue because IT ENCOMPASSES ALSO A VERY VALID PREMISE ON OUR MORAL AND RELIGIOUS STANDARDS. It is true that the government is somehow INDIRECTLY accountable for such unfortunate event BUT WHAT WE DON’T SEE IS THE BIGGER AND DEEPER PROBLEM which is THE MORAL ACCOUNTABILITY OF RELIGIOUS LEADERS IN RIGHTFULLY PREACHING THE MORAL VALUE ABOUT CHARITY AND LOVE OF FELLOWMEN. Our government is run by human persons or individuals because IT WILL BE ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE FOR OUR GOVERNMENT TO FUNCTION WITHOUT THEM. I am absolutely certain that ALMOST ALL of those human persons or individuals running our government HAS SOME SORT OF RELIGION, they could be CATHOLICS or IGLESIA NI CRISTONG TAO NI MANALO, etc. (Please refer to the posted comment by Quiel, post # 36.)

    5. Spiritual Faith and Desperation. What if you know someone who is feeling down and out for days on end? As parents, we should know when to detect if it is just temporary sadness or depression. Most importantly, feeling gloomy, and desperate is not a sign of weak spiritual faith. It might help to have God in our lives but remember, a chemically imbalanced brain isn’t wired well. “You will get over it . Don’t lose faith. Keep praying.” are often the words given to the desperate person. But God asks us to help ourselves and seek medical help.

    ***** For the above statement, the most valid question that a logical and sensible person to ask is, “Who is that God that we should call, pray and ask for help? My statements would be as frank and hurting as those would be but I couldn’t hold on my fingers intact and unmoved. I hate to say these but I should. The God of the Catholics, the Protestants, the Muslims, the Buddhists, Iglesia ni Manalos, etc. and are greatly different to the God of the Bible. Because if they are of and have the same God, they should be in one flock united and undivided. (1 Corinthians 3:3)
    __________________
    “3For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you ENVYING, and STRIFE, and DIVISIONS, are ye not CARNAL, and walk as men?” (KJV) ____

    remember that carnal or earthly things are of the devil (James 3:15)

    “15This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is EARTHLY, SENSUAL, DEVILISH.” (KJV) ____

    where confusion reigns ( James 3:16)
    _________________
    “16For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” (KJV) ____

    and not God. For in the place where confusion reigns, God is absent. It is for the reason that the God of the Bible has delicadeza. He hates confusion, division, strifes, and all evil things. (1 Corinthians 14:33)
    __________________
    “33For God is not the author of CONFUSION, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.” (KJV) ____

    It would be a long discussion to tacke these matters here. If you wanted to know the GOD OF THE BIBLE, then feel free to visit these links provided below:

    6.Approve the Student Suicide Prevention Act of 2005 (Senate Bill No. 1946) filed on March 3, 2005 by Miriam Defensor Santiago. The act to empower the Department of Education, Commission on Higher Education and the Technical Education and Skills Development to require school heads to report all the incidents of student suicide in their respective schools…and to provide a program for Student Early Intervention ad Prevention. Bill is still pending. WHY?

    ******* Well, such move can somehow do a little help for the massive information on suicide issues although it is not the cure of this menace to our innocent youth. What we need to rehabilitate and recover is the Biblical faith that each should possess according to the will of the Father Almighty. (Matthew 6:10
    ____________________
    “10Thy kingdom come, THY WILL BE DONE IN EARTH, as it is in heaven.” (KJV) ____

    But sad to say that His will doesnt prevail to the major populace of the world save the few. Another sad reality is that COMMON SENSE is NO LONGER COMMON to our peoples nowadays. Huh. I´m saddened after realizing this saddest realm of reality in our world today.
