Representative of the Northern Pastors Fellowship, Pastor Cameron Robin, has said that Dominica is facing a “serious spiritual dilemma”.
He was addressing a rally dubbed, “Rally on Child Abuse in Dominica” held at the Peebles Park in Roseau earlier today which was organized by the Coalition of Evangelical Pastors and Leaders to further raise the issue of child abuse in Dominica.
Over 17 Pastors across Dominica among members from different churches across the island were present at that ceremony.
According to Pastor Robin the main source of the problem is, “not political.”
“We have realized that the enemy has unleashed his forces against our nation. We believe that Dominica is in a serious spiritual dilemma and that the source of our problem is not political. The source of our problem is spiritual,” he said
He continued, “The reason that this is happening is because by and large we have departed away from the foundation of the truth of the living God.”
According to Pastor Robin whenever truth is absent the enemy seizes the opportunity to introduce his theory upon the nation.
“Truth comes from the presence of God, truth is God Almighty…the principles and the foundation of the nation must be built upon the foundation of truth otherwise we will be living a lie,” he stated.
He pointed out that the enemy has ravaged Dominica in many ways.
“We have seen how the enemy have ravaged our nation; we have seen how the enemy have brought in destruction upon our nation, we see how the enemy is destroying the nation and has disrupted the nation,” he remarked.
He added, “In very many places around us we see the spirit of greed and corruption.”
Pastor Robin also highlighted the ongoing problem of violence against children and the vulnerable in Dominica.
“It breaks our hearts when we realize that what we have seen displayed before us is not given the adequate attention that it deserves, and that we are destroying the very future of Dominica by not giving the kind of attention to it that it deserves,” He lamented. “We see compromise at the highest levels within the churches of this nation; we see misgivings in the judicial system. As we see those things unfold we know that is a testament of the fact that as a nation we have forsaken God.”
Additionally he noted, “We have set God aside and we have opened our hearts to the ideologies of men.”
He noted that, “We need God in this nation.”
He believes that the solution of the problems or the crisis the nation is faced with is not in a political agenda, “It is in the church of the living God.”
The ceremony also included prayers from various pastors across the island, poems, solidarity speeches from various organizations who continue to raise their voices against child abuse and performances by church members.
The ceremony was held under the theme: “Preserving God’s Heritage”
