Adregnum – ad regnum. All things that lead to the way of the Lord must be raised up for all the world to see. All peoples be assured that Jesus reigns.

Adregnum means “to the reign” where Deo Regnat, or God reigns. Posts in this category encourage readers to discover the way of the Lord. It celebrates all things that bring out positive, good-feel, thoughts. It celebrates life.

It questions and condemns all works related to the commerce of man when they hurt, threaten, or end life, especially human life.

It tries to find the good in despised creatures, and most especially in people that are hard to go along with. It can raise a voice of dissent and disagree with dominant worldviews when they are perceived as rationalizing any notion of social inequity under whatever circumstances.

In methods that facilitate stakeholder participation and consensus, it explores ideas that aim to liberate the poor. It examines social structures and the law that binds them. It proposes solutions where there is sufficient basis for an issue to be addressed, including unbinding the law if necessary, through peaceful means.

Content under this category affirms the truth that in the end, regardless of how the world goes, good will triumph over evil, and that God reigns over all things, living and non-living. Jesus is Lord and King–past, present, and future. Jesus is Lord and King–here, there, and everywhere.

No force on earth shall be able to silence ad regnum voices when things get in the way of the Lord.

Philippine Congress, Content Creator 

Philippine Congress, content creator  was also published by The Manila Times on 24 May 2023.
