On to Nineveh

Although one third of the world is Christian, many among them need to be re-evangelised for they have turned away from the real faith. Instead of living based on the teachings of the church they have been following the dark evil forces of the world.

We have Jesus who came and proclaimed the Good news to us. Now like the people of Nineveh, we too need to repent. They listened to Jonah and put on sack clothes and fasted for forty days. Though we have more than forty days before the end of the world, we need to be happy that we have more time to proclaim His word to the world.

Besides the lapsed Christians, there is also two-third of the population who need to be evangelised. Hence, let us look at the world as the new Nineveh and as Jonah spoke in 3:2

“Set out for the great city of Nineveh and announce to it the message that I will tell you.”

Perhaps this evil generation will listen.

About Frank Padilla

Founder of the Couples for Christ (CFC) community. Way back in 1981, CFC was started through the initiative of the Ang Ligaya ng Panginoon Community (LNP). In January 1981, LNP gathered 16 couples who went through a Life in the Spirit Seminar, with the intent of bringing them into LNP. But instead they were kept together for a few months after the program, until it was decided that a new group would be established to emphasize family life renewal. It would be an outreach of LNP. Frank and Gerry Padilla were among the 16 couples that became members in June of 1981 when CFC was born. Frank quickly emerged to be a top leader, and in 1985, he was already the Executive Director, running the day-to-day work of the whole community. In 1986 he went full-time for CFC and has been serving the community since, through two separate splits the community saw. Today he serves as the Servant General of CFC-FFL (Couples for Christ-Foundation for Family and Life). Know more about the founder at CFC-FFL
