Basilica del Santo Niño de Cebu

Above is it’s formal name in Spanish. But it can be called simply Sto. Niño de Cebu or just Sto. Niño (read as Ninio). If you’re interested in going to Sto. Nino de Cebu, the map is just below this page.

People are in lining up to touch the Sto. Niño. I used to do this years ago, but i am now a born again Christian. I missed that time though, hehe.

    Mga hangal kayong mga tao bakit kayo sumasamba sa rebulto yan ang walang kwentang katuruan ng mga pareng ito o katoliko kc hindi nila binabasa sa harap ninyo ang banal na aklat papatayin kayo ng mga yan dahil kasama kayong paparusahan ng diyos sa impyierno kayong sumasamba sa diyos diyosang kahoy itigil na ninyo ang mga yan walang kwenta sapagkat ang diyos ay buhay kaya sambahin natin siya sa espirito sapagkat hindi siya nakikita basahin natin
    MAY NABASA NA BHA KAYONG STO NINO SA BIBLIYA? DI BA WALA KC ARAL NG TAO YAN HINDI SA DIYOS
     
    Deuteronomio 5:     7 ” ‘Huwag kang sasamba sa ibang diyos, maliban sa akin.
     
                   8 ” ‘Huwag kang gagawa ng diyus-diyosang imahen ng anumang nilalang na nasa langit, nasa lupa, o nasa tubig upang sambahin. 9 Huwag mo silang yuyukuran ni sasambahin sapagkat akong si Yahweh na iyong Diyos ay mapanibughuing Diyos. Ang kasalanan ng mga magulang ay sinisingil ko sa kanilang mga anak hanggang sa ikatlo at ikaapat na salinlahi.
    2 Hari 17:     41 Sumamba nga sila kay Yahweh ngunit sumamba rin sila sa kanilang mga diyus-diyosan. Hanggang ngayo’y ganoon pa rin ang kanilang ginagawa maging ng kanilang mga kaapu-apuhan.
    Jeremias 10: 3 Ang dinidiyos nila’y hindi maaasahan.
    Isang punongkahoy na pinutol sa gubat,
    inanyuan ng mga dalubhasang kamay,
     
    4 at pinalamutian ng ginto at pilak.
    Idinikit at pinakuan upang hindi mabuwal.
     
    5 Ang mga diyus-diyosang ito’y
    tulad sa panakot ng ibon sa gitna ng bukid, hindi nakakapagsalita;
    pinapasan pa sila sapagkat hindi nakakalakad.
    Huwag kayong matakot sa kanila
    sapagkat hindi sila makakagawa ng masama,
    at wala ring magagawang mabuti.”8 Silang lahat ay pawang hangal at mangmang.
    Ano ang maituturo sa kanila ng mga diyus-diyosang kahoy?
     
    9 Ang kanilang diyus-diyosa’y
    binalutan ng pilak na galing sa Tarsis,
    at ng gintong mula sa Upaz,
    ginawang lahat ng mahuhusay na kamay;
    pagkatapos ay binihisan ng kulay ube at pula
    na hinabi naman ng manghahabing sanay.14 Sa harapan niya ang bawat tao’y mistulang mangmang;
    malalagay sa kahihiyan bawat panday
    sapagkat ang ginawa nilang mga diyus-diyosan
    ay hindi totoo at walang buhay.
     
    15 Sila’y walang silbi sapagkat likha lamang ng pandaraya;
    wawasakin silang lahat ni Yahweh.
