What's With Katrina and Kho?
Does an individual who commit wrong really get away? If you're a net citizen, you've possibly heard of the latest big moral scandal in Philippine show biz. A sex video of popular actress Katrina and a medical doctor, Kho, has been spreading like wildfire online and offline. Now, a senator filed a public expose condemning the immorality and dishonorable conduct of the doctor against women like Katrina. In the Philippine Daily Inquirer newspaper today, it was even reported that the said doctor has 40 sex videos with different women. Katrina, the "victim," gathered enough media and public support to file a case too to strip doc Kho of license to practice professional medicine .... Well, what can we say. It takes two to tango. More likely, this seems a case again of sin both "done to me" and "done by me?" It's so sad to witness such an embarrassing spectacle -- supposed-to-be "role models" committing indignity and dishonor before the public's eyes. Even if the wrongdoing is not publicly exposed, does one get away scot-free? No. What appears to be pleasure or reward is short-lived. God gives us a choice: do right or do wrong. Choose good or evil. The Lord is teaching us that for every choice, there is a corresponding consequence. "You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked" (Psalm 91:8). At the end of the day, whether or not the gavel is slammed down on evil, the wrongdoer will stand before God. And God is just. That's the big picture.... In the meantime, there is hope and healing for Katrina and Kho if they both turn away from their former deeds and turn to God. It's saying to God, "Lord, I ask for Your forgiveness for my sins. I ask that you change my heart and save me. I receive You as my personal Savior and Lord of my life. From hereon, I will obey and live for You." This sets both Katrina and Kho truly free, healed, and restored to wholeness.
