Social Media BOON or BANE?

Social Media role in  the campaign of President Rodrigo Duterte against Drug Abuse.

The President Rodrigo Duterte Campaign against the drug abuse by the use of social media is BOON. Now a days most of the people in the society used social media in different motives. The campaign that president  Duterte advocating is helpful , his motive is clear  to end the rampant drug abuse in our society to reduce crime and make a peaceful and progressive country.  Threatening criminals with death is not a crime, he added, and if they’re killed by the thousands, “that’s not my problem.”“My problem is how to take care of the law-abiding, God-fearing young persons of this Republic,” Duterte said.

Drug abuse campaign is strengthen by the use of Social Media. Our president gives us an example on how to use social media with a good motives if some people says that it is a bane they were wrong. If we use social media as our pastime in discriminating artist online and bashing on them with different issues did you think they use social media in a good one? Even in schools students bullies their classmates online and use social media to cheat or use social media for child abuse they are insane. Many people uses social media to let themselves to  be famous all over the world they do not have a good motives. We must be a good citizen to our country and a good neitizen in social media sites. We must advocate things online with a good motives and support every good advocacy to empower it and use it as an instrument for change! Speak out use ICT POWER with GOOD MOTIVES.

Amy Purdy on her ted talk she gives courage on the people who lose self confidence to live life in the fullest and explore the things that would make once self to be good. As she stated on her introduction ” If your life were a book and you were the author, how would you want your story to go? That’s the question that changed my life forever. ” This statement inspires me most. Everyone of us is the author of our own life it depends on how we will make and design our future.

Despite the darkness of what she endure.She never stop on believing on her self and she take the courage to begin a new chapter of her own life. She says “ And this is when I learned that our borders and our obstacles can only do two things: one, stop us in our tracks or two, force us to get creative.” Trials and circumstances is not the reason to give up on life. We must take and embrace changes and use these changes to pursue our dreams.

Why Doesn’t God Heal Every Sickness, Disease, and Illness? By: Chris Russell From: Bible Study Tools

I am a big believer in the doctrine of healing. I have experienced God’s healing in my own life, and I have witnessed God healing myriads of people over my past couple decades I’ve been in ministry. I am greatly comforted by verses like the one in James that gives us a great hope in the power of prayer:

James 5
13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing psalms.
 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
 15 And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.

I do believe that God heals, but I also believe that healing is not always the only path that He chooses for us. Sometimes His perfect plan for our lives is to allow us to suffer and experience disease, illness, and hardship. The reason for this is that He can often teach us things through suffering that we would never be able to learn through a book or seminar, or through comfort and prosperity.

Paul had a problem with his eyesight that God never healed. When Timothy was sick, Paul told him to drink wine (not go to a healing service). The Lazarus who was raised from the dead eventually died later. Paul says that he had a thorn in the flesh which he prayed for God to remove over and over again, but God never removed it. Job suffered because God had a whole bigger purpose for him than mere comfort on this planet. And Job’s suffering was not the result of a lack of faith.

Some of the greatest blessings in this world come from God’s power in the midst of trials. God changes us, molds us, strengthens us, and builds us through hardship. And there is nothing like the experience of being comforted by God alone in that dark hour.

Over the past twenty-five years that I have been in ministry, I have seen people hurt greatly by the false teaching that God always wants to heal every malady. This is because that belief can cause a massive amount of guilt and disillusionment for the afflicted in those times when God actually chooses not to heal. The implication is that the suffering Christian just didn’t quite believe enough or is hiding some sort of sin. I have seen Christians destroyed in their faith over this erroneous teaching.

We must realize that sometimes it’s just not God’s plan to heal or to fix a problem quickly for us. And that’s ok. He still loves us. He still has a plan. And He still has a profound purpose for that pain that can end up blessing us beyond anything we could ever imagine.

Often God chooses to heal! But sometimes He teaches us more and draws us closer when we walk the dark mile of suffering. But to experience such blessing, it is important that we run to God and not away from Him in the midst of the storm.
