MANILA, Philippines – Unlike some religious leaders who have said that they might join a revolt in the event of failure of elections, Jesus Is Lord (JIL) founder Bro. Eddie Villa-nueva said he is not eager to join the bandwagon of protests.
Villanueva, presidential candidate of the Bangon Pilipinas Party (BPP), told editors of The STAR that he would rather exhaust all democratic and peaceful means instead of joining revolts.
Villanueva, a former student activist, has had his share of street demonstrations and was even arresyted twice during the martial law years.

A day in the life… of Bro. Eddie
MANILA, Philippines – Since joining the presidential race, Bro. Eddie, founder of the Jesus Is Lord Church worldwide, has sacrificed sleep for more time on the campaign trail. These days, four hours of sleep is about all he gets.
He woke up at 4 a.m. last Thursday so as not to miss the two-and-a-half-hour ferry ride from Sorsogon to Masbate.
A friend lent him and his Bangon Pilipinas Party (BPP) ticket for a private plane to get to the island province after a problem in the booking for passenger seats arose.
