The Cross was made by man; and they nailed and crucified Jesus Christ....

it symbolizes the heavy burden of sins that the heaviest storm on earth had to topple...and hopefully it will encourage the living to do the right things that are pleasing to all human beings and God.

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis has led tens of thousands of people at the Vatican in silent prayer for the victims of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) that has ravaged the Philippines.

The pope told a crowd of pilgrims, tourists and Romans in St. Peter's Square on Sunday that he wanted to assure the people of the Philippines and surrounding region that he feels close to them. He lamented the high toll of dead and the enormous damage, and then requested silent prayer for "our brothers and sisters."

Instead of throwing unusual words, let us just help whatever we can do to the victims of Yolanda. We are all Filipinos, We are all children of our GOD, we are all one.

Why not ask those leaders of INC to help the survivors instead of building colossal churches?

Long live INC! because when tribulation come, your grandiose churches will be destroyed by Jesus Christ, whom you only recognize as human and not GOD.

Well, good news Elias. I read that one or two INC Churches are standing tall in Tacloban and not destroyed by Yolanda.

See, it's a good sign for INC...so don't disrespect it by spreading lies against any religion.

better to have good people than bad; yes, I believe mother nature is so angry especially in the Philippines; City Mayor of Davao Duterte said: God was not around when Yolanda hit the Philippines and/or He has forgotten there is earth"...I could not help but feel sadness seeing those people looking for foods when we have so much to eat and water to drink....

I know someone said "anti-semitism" , anti-semitis is when you call someone a primate reference or maybe a slave term-IF you have had no prior contact--District court 9 san fran-ruled distributing literature depicting humans as primates was "Anti-semitic" , not saying jewish person in a negative reference as much as some people would like to think that , that would infringe on other peoples constitutional rights such as free speech and would cause a conflict--BUT some people keep trying, has not worked yet.1416

well if the court ruled out, then it's the law; but if interested, they can still appeal to the higher court of appeals and then to the supreme court. Who knows, they might win ...

Lol,

You should inform the Catholic bishops and priests including the Vatican gangster cliques about your idea!!! Let them stop their gossipmongerings all over the INTERNET!!! Have them exercise restraint when opening their advertising lips which are being accompanied by bragging and grandstanding!!! Let them have shame at least!!!

Lol,

Amd everytime Catholics and Protestants use crosses to symbolize their faith, they unknowingly are placing Christ again and again on the cross which is a symbol of shame!!! Your acts are patterned after that of pagans!!! The cross was never used by the fisrt-century Christians to symbolize their belief in Christ!!! For they know that it was His enemies who used that when crucifying Him and subjecting Him to death!!!
