This word is used specifically in Paul's letters to denote transgressions committed in the presence of the law. 8 This phrase must be understood in the context of Paul warning the Galatians to avoid the curse of to hit the law.

Hereafter cited as Bonneau, "The Logic of Paul's Argument on the Cursing of the Law". The image of a child ὑπὸ ἐπιτρόπους ἐστὶν καὶ οἰκονόμους recalls in the analogy the metaphor of the law as a πθω:3θθωα:3θθωα. The time of the law is not eternal: now that this faith has come, we are no longer under a παιδαγωγὸς (3:25).

Paul warns the Galatians not only of their status on the road to apostasy, but also of falling under the curse of the law. Paul defends faith as an identity marker for Christian communities in contrast to the works of the law.

Understanding Local Residents’ Perceptions on Tourism Development and Sustainability of San Juan, Batangas, Philippines

An indifferent attitude could appear among local residents, which could present problems in planning tourism development. Therefore, the acceptance and support of the residents play a key role in the success of any tourism development. In an attempt to contribute to the literature, this study describes and analyzes local residents' perceptions of tourism development specifically in rural areas.

Several factors such as demographic, personal, social and other factors related to tourism (Harril, 2004) were considered as predictors of local residents' perceptions of tourism development. The researcher recognizes the importance of the perspective and expectations of stakeholders, the engagement of policy makers (Nawar, 2014) and the involvement of local residents in achieving sustainable tourism development. Andereck (2004) that older people are more supportive of any tourism development even though it contradicts the concept of Community Attachment Theory.

However, the development of sustainable tourism needs positive support from the local community of the host region. This study will also evaluate the relationship between residents' perceptions of tourism development and perceived sustainability of the development. These will ensure a successful start to tourism development without compromising the protection and conservation of forest reserves and community watersheds.

The municipality recorded a remarkable tourism development after the policy was formulated, although there were also some visible improvements before that. The third section was created to measure respondents' perceptions of sustainable tourism development in their community. The statements in each aspect of tourism development and sustainability (economic dependence, community and nature conservation, and cultural heritage and social integrity) are all stated in a positive way, so strongly agreeing with a statement means having a very positive perception, while disagreeing means the opposite (on a 4- point Likert scale, where 1 = very negative, 2 = negative, 3 = positive and 4 = very positive).

It is also worth noting that although local residents AGREE, the aspect of tourism development with the least agreement (with a mean of 3.1892) is community and nature conservation. Furthermore, it was established that employment for tourism only has a significant correlation (r-value: 0.252) to the residents' perception of a perspective on tourism development, which is community and nature conservation. However, local residents who are not engaged in tourism have a lower positive perception of the environmental aspect of tourism development.

Therefore, it is important to analyze and evaluate the perceptions of local residents towards tourism development, especially of a developing tourism destination like San Juan, Batangas for achieving sustainability. It was interesting but disappointing to know that the difference in the respondents' perception on the sustainability of tourism development can be attributed mostly to their perception of the enrichment of cultural heritage and social integrity, while the least to community and nature conservation .
