Senator Pimentel and preaching


If you have been watching the news or surfing the net you might have already chance upon the news of Sen Pimentel’s green joke during the senate hearing. Here is the excerpt:

“My name was mentioned in the context that we are ganging up, that this is all political, that we are using insertions, when he (Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano) said in a blanket statement that we had insertions,” Roxas said.

“I say no. I had no insertion on any matter. In fact, I have no insertion, period. Because we’re in the minority! Let alone an insertion for a road to pass through any such property,” Roxas said.

Pimentel answered: “Well, well, I am sure that after your marriage, you had some insertions.”

“But that may be different,” he added.

The comment prompted laughter from those seated in the gallery, but angered Roxas. “That is an affront on my wife (Korina Sanchez), Mr. President!” he said.

It reminds me a lot about using my words carefully when I am preaching the  word of God. I can’t be careless with my words. There were times that I felt I’ve overboard and my wife usually reminds me of it.

This not only applies in preaching but in everyday life. The Bible says that we will be judged by the word that comes out of our mouth.

Matt. 12:36 But I tell you that people will have to give account on the day of judgment for every empty word they have spoken.
Matt. 12:37 For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”
