  2. Hi Reekay,
    what an ugly dynamic u become a victim of!
    Jealous, unhappy people cannot stand the happiness and success of others.
    For those or some other resasons they engage in evil.

    Hope u soon revert to the good work u r doing and keeping us posted about the good things in the PH.

    1. for now, with this quarantine situation, not able to go out and show much. but eventually things will open up and i can do more videos out and about.

  3. They only seem to get away with it right up until Judgement Day: John 5:28-29, Revelation 20:11-15, Acts: 17:30-31, Acts 4:12.

  4. The enigma of evil….. Some of the greatest thinkers of decades gone by were deists. They believed the creator abandoned his creation (at least for a time) to allow nature take its course. There is beauty to behold and also the ugliness of evil that seemingly goes on unhindered by the supreme architect of the universe.

    1. in the book of Job, since first reading it i’ve always found it interesting that satan (already fallen and cast out) was still able to approach the throne of God. most people think satan is imprisoned on earth or moving between hell and earth. neither is true.

  5. Hi Reekay, itโ€™s probably no coincidence we have a prime example of all you mentioned very relevant in American politics currently. Hint: he tweets a lot. Hopefully we can end this charlatans rule come November.๐Ÿ™๐Ÿคž ofcourse anyone we put in office will have their imperfections. But we need to get it back down to a more normal level. Not all of this circus outrageousness going on now.

    1. Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea Reekay Iโ€™m a subscriber of yours and i do agree with you on a lot facts and sense you make.

      , but this administration is on a new low level I havenโ€™t seen in my life time.

    2. no political figure has the monopoly on corruption. in or formerly having held office.

    1. and many expats have realized just how vulnerable they are, after they bought some filipina fling a house.

    1. true. even a hammer or stone is incapable of doing good or evil. it must first be taken up into the hands of one who exercises choice to either build or destroy.

  6. So true and to the point. Great topic and difficult to discuss and think upon to come to terms with. Thanks.

  7. I have been dying to know what the people of the Philippines think in all this. Do they believe we are in the end times. Main stream media may be keeping it from them. We are nearing the end. Great things coming I promise!

    1. it’s a mixed bag of reactions from what i’ve been gathering. yes, some think ‘this is the end’. but most are more concerned with when they will be able to go back to work and earn again.

  8. the problem as I see it is that there are no universal definitions of good or evil.. what one person/culture sees as good, another will not.. and there are tons of shades of grey inside those differences. Until such time as you can accurately define what something is, there will not be agreement on it.

  9. Henry, the people that have been spreading rumors and fake news are using your good name to improve their own channels. Your subscribers are loyal, you have helped so many expats learn about Southeast Asia. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

    1. a good example of envy and hatred in practice. what they fail to realize is that the more they marinate themselves in a dark place, the less capable they become to ever enjoy the better things in life. if anything, that is a small part of their self-inflicted punishment.

      meanwhile, the rest of us will continue to enjoy what life has to offer.

  10. THE FIRST MURDER WAS COMMITTED BY A RELIGIONIST OF THE DO-IT-YOURSELF KIND WHEN CAIN KILLED ABEL–a man who was trusting God–the beginning of the persecution of the True Church by the False Church. Cain was religious, very religious, and he was trying very hard to save himself in his own way, even sacrificing to God and claiming to worship God, and doing his best to ask God to help him earn his own Salvation–but his best wasn’t good enough! His way was not God’s way! It was the way of all false religions. They are all dependent upon self-righteousness and their own way! Most of them claim to be worshipping God and seeking a little help from Him to make it, but working so hard to earn it they figure they deserve it, with or without His help, and are quite offended if He doesn’t seem to appreciate their goodness!

    1. yes, there is a huge chasm between, ‘being religious’ and being spiritual.

  11. Theodicy, or the problem of evil, is an inescapable issue for believers. The problem of evil is the question of how to reconcile the existence of evil and suffering with an omnipotent, omnibenevolent God. The Greek philosopher Epicurus, as attributed and made popular by David Hume, puts it: “Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then from whence comes evil?โ€

    I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
    Isaiah 45:7 King James Version (KJV)

    1. Brian, Nice thoughts. God is quoted in Genesis, as saying all you need to do is to refuse what the Serpent tells you to do. right? refuse evil. it’s a choice

    2. Scott Williamson
      Free will has nothing to do with the problem of evil. And it is, in fact a huge problem for believers.

    3. It is not inescapable or problematic. The Bible teaches that we have FREE WILL … which leads to sin or evil … kinda like what the crucifixion was all about.

    4. Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea
      According to the Bible no one can know the mind of God. The premise that any God does, in fact exist seems to me to be the starting point. I was a youth minister for many years and finally had to admit that I didnโ€™t have any evidence to support my faith based belief in a God. A God that doesnโ€™t interact with his creation is indistinguishable from a God that does not exist. Faith is the excuse people use when they donโ€™t have evidence to support a claim. If you have evidence you never invoke faith. These are just my opinions. Make of them what you will, peace.

      Peter 3:15
      And if someone asks about your Christian hope, always be ready to explain it.”

    5. another response offered is, “who has known the mind of God, or been His counselor?”

      consider all the intricate thoughts we as humans have about so many things. and then consider an ant’s inability to have such thoughts as ours. it’s something to ponder.

    1. @Reekay’s LifeBeyondTheSea That’s what I was saying. Surprised that you bring it up. Were you hit with something?

    2. surprised? quite the opposite. nothing about human nature’s desire for evil ever surprises me. “there is no bottom.”

  12. ๐Ÿฅ‡ GOLD MEDAL PRESENTATION REEKAY , THAT’S THE REALITY OF WHAT GOVERNMENT’S ALL ABOUT , WE HAVE TO BE OUR OWN GOVERNMENT….โ˜๐Ÿพ…!

  13. Too many people adore the most devious liars and detest the one who is trying to tell the truth. Then will tell you that the one trying to tell the truth is guilty as sin. ~ H.L. Mencken

  14. If you ponder the size and complexity of the Universe, you can see that the earth is but a grain of sand on all the accumulated beaches of the world. If that is so and a God exists and created everything why would he even care about what exists on this one speck of sand. Given that is God exists and there is a heaven and hell then, I surmise that this is hell. Think of all the pain, suffering and disadvantage that exists. If you are speaking of good and evil, then it is apparent that evil exists only because of money and the human species desire to accumulate it and acquire material objects. This is what leads to the inequalities and suffering in life. Natural selection dictates that the strong survive but in the human species it is the smart that survives since they can manipulate the system and have things like police and lawyers to protect them when injustice is done to the masses. I would love to have an extended conversation with you on this and hear your point of views.

    1. “It is apparent that evil exists only because of money”. No, it is not apparent. Have you ever heard of Adolph Hitler, Jeffery Dahmer, BTK, Jack the Ripper, etc etc? I assure you that evil isn’t limited to your singular “class envy” viewpoint.

  15. One of the biggest mistakes we can make in life is to think everyone thinks like us or should thanks for sharing

    1. Why u say that? U prefer a world that is not rule based, intl. relations without rules ?
      So anyone can do what they want. Start a war when they feel like it, rob u, kill you and get away with it…

  16. It always amazes me the number of people that believe in the Christian God but don’t believe in the Devel.. Even though not all people in the US believe in the Christian God they almost all are Christian like. Meaning they have Christian morals. Just about all people believe that there is good & evil in the world. I am not telling anyone what to believe.
