  • Western Bukidnon Manobo: “For, for example, there are some people whom God has illuminated their minds. They already understand what is going to be given to us (incl.) in Heaven, and they have shared already in the power of the Holy Spirit, and they know the good things that God teaches, and they have seen also what can be done through the power which God will reveal in the future at the last days. If they turn their back on this, it’s no longer possible to have them come back again so that they might abandon their evil behavior. It’s as if they are again nailing to the cross the son of God, and they are causing people to speak in rejection against Him.” (Source: Western Bukidnon Manobo Back Translation)
