- Eddie Villanueva says that God is creating calamities because of sinners
- Villanueva says that all people have to do is to ask for forgiveness and everything will be fine
CIBAC Partylist Representative Bro. Eddie Villanueva blames all the calamities happening in the world, including the eruption of the Taal Volcano, on the sins of the people.
He describes the calamities as ‘sumpa ng kasalanan’.
Villanueva says that people should acknowledge the fact that all the problems that the world is facing are just the result of them being sinners.
“Para magkaroon ng significance ang ating dasal at pananalangin, maunawaan po natin na ang lahat ng kalamidad na ito at disaster ay bunga ng sinasabi ng Banal na Kasulatan — the curses of sins.
“Ito po’y para sa mga biktima ng kalamidad, disasters, lalong-lalo na dito sa Taal volcano eruption, at maging sa Kamindanaoan at sa lahat ng panig ng daigdig,” he added.
Villanueva also described calamities such as earthquakes, tsunamis, and others as signs of the “second coming of Jesus”.
He said that the reason these things are happening is that Jesus wants people to come to Him and avoid sinning altogether.
Moreover, Villanueva said that those who will abandon sins and live by the sayings of Jesus will be forgiven by him, and all the major calamities will subside.
“Kung tayong mga tinawag ng Panginoon sa Kanyang pangalan ay magpapakumbaba, mananalangin, hahanapin ang Kanyang mukha at tatalikod sa kanilang mga kasalanan, ang sabi po ng Diyos: ‘Ako, mula sa langit, pakikinggan ko ang inyong mga daing at pananalangin. Patatawarin ko ang inyong mga kasalanan at pagagalingin ko ang inyong bayan.'”
Villanueva added that if people look into 2 Chronicles 7:14 in the bible, it states exactly what he was preaching which says that those who will follow Jesus will be forgiven for their sins.
Villanueva was in Batangas recently giving out relief goods and preaching the teachings of the Lord.
