Chief Justice Reynato Puno Speaks at PBS’s 112th Anniversary


Former Chief Justice Reynato Puno will be the guest-of-honor and speaker during the 112th Anniversary of the Philippine Bible Society on November 19, 2011. Expounding on the theme Pagpapahayag ng Salita ng Diyos Tungo sa Pagbago” (Proclaiming God’s Word Towards National Transformation) Chief Justice Puno will prelude the National Bible Week 2012 Celebration which will carry the same theme.
A man of integrity and excellence, Reynato Puno had an illustrious career in public service which was capped by his appointment as the 22nd Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Unknown to many, CJ Puno is also a lay preacher at the United Methodist Church and is the incumbent Chairman of the Administrative Council of the Puno Memorial United Methodist Church. An active supporter of the Bible cause, he partnered with PBS in 2007 and spearheaded a Bible distribution program for members of the judiciary all over the country. He was appointed to the Board of Trustees of the Philippine Bible Society in the Annual Membership Meeting last April 2011.
In a testimony he shared during a recent PBS Board Retreat, the former Chief Justice said that since his retirement, he has declined numerous offers to enter the academe to teach aspiring lawyers. He revealed that at this point in his life – a life that has always been guided and directed by the Bible – he has made a commitment to teach not at the halls of Law Schools but within the walls of the churches’ Sunday Schools, stressing that the only subject he will teach from now on is the Supreme Law – not made by man – but the Law of God.

I am a Bible Ambassador because I believe that the Bible can help people a lot. And knowing the Bible, people come in touch with the Lord Jesus Christ.

It's an honor and a privilege for me to support the Philippine Bible Society - to reach out to the unreachable people by giving Bibles not only in the Philippines but the whole world.

“It is a blessing to be able to support our local churches in need of Bibles and Bible study programs. It is our hope that they not only grow in terms of membership but also have the heart to extend spiritual help to others, just like how they have received help.”

“I praise and thank our Almighty God that, through PBS, I now own a Poimen version of MBB (Magandang Balita Biblia) in the national language of the Philippines – Tagalog.
Knowing Matthew 10:32-33, I read and study the Bible so that I will not be dismayed when the Lord Jesus Christ comes. Life is too short compared with the promise of eternal life in God’s Kingdom.”

I think this is very helpful to every readers. The word of the Lord are the food of our soul which we always need every minute of our life. I dont often read the Bible but everytime i open it, God was always like in front of me and speaking as what is something i'm just needing to hear. He speaks to me and i can feel it. A million thanks to You my Lord.
