It started to go bad when Jesus told the people what they didn't want to hear. Look at what He did. He threw the money changers out of the temple area. He taught that tax collectors and prostitutes could enter the kingdom of heaven before the religious. He told the people to pay taxes. Then He pronounced a series of woes against the religious leaders. "Woe to you, scribes and Pha-risees.

But this is Jesus. The righteous One. The only perfect Man. God in the flesh. He was not in town for popularity contest. His task was to proclaim the truth and provide salvation. And it cost Him His life.

Think about Jesus' up-and-down week in Jerusalem. Then praise Him for His perfection and His love- love that took Him all the way to the cross.

the older the church, the more it looks mystifying...

Hi Red,

Due to lack of time, I was only able to visit the San Joaquin and Miagao Churches. I will probably be back soon to visit more places in Ilo-ilo and to meet you. I would have loved to meet you there but I was afraid you were busy, and I also had very limited time.

Tes. I visited Guimaras. Beautiful island!
