imageHONOLULU, Hawaii (The Adobo Chronicles) – A Christian organization earlier warned that the planet earth will be permanently destroyed on Wednesday, October 7.

The eBible Fellowship, an online affiliation headquartered near Philadelphia, has based its prediction of an October obliteration on a previous claim that the world would end on 21 May 2011. While that claim proved to be false, the organization is confident it has the correct date this time.

“According to what the Bible is presenting it does appear that 7 October will be the day that God has spoken of: in which, the world will pass away,” said Chris McCann, the leader and founder of the fellowship, an online gathering of Christians headquartered in Philadelphia.

“It’ll be gone forever. Annihilated.”

Well, it’s now Thursday in every continent of planet earth, and people are still waking up with everything fully intact.

In Honolulu, surfers started heading for their early morning routine;  the McDonald’s restaurant on Kalakaua Avenue is still serving the island platter of SPAM, Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice; and Japanese and other tourists boarded airconditioned buses headed for Hanauma Bay, a favorite snorkeling spot.

In the Philippines, NoyNoy Aquino is still president while Mar Roxas, VP Jojo Binay and Senator Grace Poe are still running to succeed him; Filipinos are still praying that Mayor Rod Duterte will declare his candidacy; there is still a long line to get to the MRT trains; and commuters are still stuck in traffic on EDSA.

There’s even good news: the man who heads the agency managing public services in the Philippine capital, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) Chair Francis Tolentino, has resigned following a disgraceful Liberal Party event in Laguna province, featuring lewd performances by scantily-clad women.

But there is also some bad news: Filipino champion boxer Manny Pacquiao, congressman who is the number one absentee legislator, is running for senator; and his chances for a rematch with American Floyd Mayweather just went ‘poooof!’ Mayweather this week announced his retirement after 49 undefeated championship fights.

Meanwhile, the Hollywood film, ‘The Martian,’ opened this week in theaters worldwide  and actor Matt Damon is still in hot water for his racial and homophobic comments.

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump lashed out at those who have criticized him for his recent statements that he would date his own daughter, Ivanka.

“I am a very religious person and I live by God’s Commandments,” Trump said.

He quoted the bible in which it says:

“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” (Mark, 12:30-31).

Trump pointed out that we should not take bible quotes too literally. “The spirit of the second commandment is that we should love not just our neighbors but everyone, and that includes my daughter'” he said.

Trump’s infatuation with Ivanka became evident once more at last night’s Republican presidential debate when, responding to a question on which woman the candidates think should be placed on the new ten dollar bill. His response, of course, was “my daughter.”

Tacloban City, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – An official of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) gave a piece of advice to Filipinos planning to attend the Masses to be celebrated by Pope Francis during his visit to the country in January.

“Bring your own food and drinks,” Fr. Marvin Mejia, CBCP secretary general, said during a recent press briefing. “There are logistical support being done but with the number of people expected to come… we are expecting thousands so it would be very, very difficult to find food,” Mejia said.

Devout Catholics immediately criticized Mejia’s statement, saying that it seems the CBCP official hasn’t read the bible. They reminded Mejia about two separate stories in the New Testament where Jesus multiplied five loaves of bread and two fish that fed thousands of followers who came to listen to him speak near Galilee, and created barrels of wine at a wedding party in the town of Cana where the hosts ran out of wine for their guests.

“Fr. Mejia seems to be a man of little faith,” said one resident of Tacloban who looks forward to attending the mass to be celebrated by Pope Francis at the Tacloban City airport. “The Pope can replicate what Jesus did, and I am not worried about not having anything to eat or drink,” he said.

Tacloban was the hardest hit when typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) devasted many towns and cities in Central Philippines last year.
