Is a pastor of a United Pentecostal church obligated to reveal the financial status of his church?

---- == == * Yes, I believe they are subject to the law as any non-profit organization to have open records and financial accountability. If a pastor refuses to be financially accountable and open with the churches finances, i.e. offerings, tithes, the churches expenditures and any and all use of monies donated by their members, I would seriously question his motives and where the money is going. Not good. Violation of law in this country, and evidence of character flaw or selfish motives.

Why are the majority of the Filipinos Catholics?

The majority of Filipinos are Catholics because back starting in the 1500s, when Europeans were trying to get into the Asian trading network, Protestant countries like England and the Dutch did not care much for converting, but the Catholic Spanish and Portuguese were more dedicated. Since mainly the Spanish conquered the Northern Philippines (south was Muslim), they were the ones who launched missionary efforts and because the island was isolated, they were very successful. The missionaries started with Filipino leaders who set up town squares with a church as the center. Then as time went on, the religion started spreading and Muslim influences started declining.

Filipinos who embraced Catholicism as introduced by the Spaniards. Those who accepted submission to the Spanish Catholic Friar's colonization. Quick definitions (submissive)

* adjective: willing to submit without resistance to authority; deferent * adjective: inclined or willing to submit to orders or wishes of others or showing such inclination (Example: "Submissive servants") .

What are the Japanese influences on the Philippines?

Much of Japanese culture became abhorrent following World War II, when the people of the Philippines experienced a very cruel occupation by the Japanese. This included forced labor, executions, forced educational programs (learning Japanese), monetary changes, and requiring oaths of loyalty to the new regime.

Japanese influences are much less pronounced than those adopted during the Spanish and US occupations.

Historical Influences
Nihongi- an ancient book of Japan - claims that Filipinos reached Kyushu, Japan to conduct trade in the 13th century. They cite several similarities between Phillipine and Japanese activities:
  • manufacture farming tools and war weapons
  • art of tanning deerskin
  • culturing pearls
  • industry of breeding ducks and fish
