For some time we have been asked to put in Misyon a section on Questions which our readers would like raised. We are not too sure how appropriate or suitable this is so please let us know if these questions have been of any help to you. We are calling this article To Search is to Find because we do not have the answers to every question – but the very asking of the question is the beginning of the answer.
Corruption: No Hope?
Recent events in the Philippines have revealed great corruption on all sides. Is there any hope for change? What can Christians do?
Answer: We must never lose hope. Other countries have been through similar crises of corruption and have now reduced it o manageable levels. As Christians we must:
a. Protest clearly, loudly and continually.
b. Vote for people with a clean record and not continue the old system of voting for our friends, relatives and kababayans.
c. We must join organizations set up to stop corruption like Namfrel or Graftwatch.
