Dominica is facing a serious spiritual dilemma – Pastor Cameron Robin

Robin said the main source of the problem is not political

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”

    majority of the crowd were women and children. Hardly any men except for the pastors and lennox and danny and them to show the uwp supporting the movement (they’ll maybe get more votes next time). apart from that, the abusers who are usually men, are not even there. so who are they preaching to? the choir? the converted? the message falls on the wrong ears. Just the other day i listened to a grown man talk about how he going to beat his woman if she doesn’t dish out his food for him. any how he go to lash her and knock her out because she told him his food on the stove. his friends laughed and joked and jeered. i wondered if something was wrong with me for not seeing the sanity in it all. but clearly for her sake i hope she put the food because for sure he was dead serious.

      well not unless they want to push their agenda and try to specify the Holy Spirit and by getting that you have to go to church. more less another con to tithe.

      • @smdh April 19, 2016

        anonymous2 is correct; I received Holy Spirit at home–I did not see how I could receive Him in a church (the people like myself ). Today I am gifted with ways and means to demonstrate God’s Love; Holy Spirit is guiding and teaching me, how to do so –I am growing in the Spirit day by day.

        It is one thing for a person to belong to a church family, but it is another thing to be guided and taught by Holy Spirit, who makes His home in Conscience, where God connects to us.

        DNO can you , please ,not print the entry below–I has a few errors.

    This is the crisis in Dominica and elsewhere in the world. St. Paul said it, outlined it very well and lamented over it. Think, how today, it hurts the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

    1 Cor.1:10:17 – Divisions in the Church – Groups and slogans – I urge you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose. For it has been reported to me about you, my brothers, by Chloe’s people, that there are rivalries among you. I mean that each of you is saying, “I belong to Paul or I belong to Apollos, or I belong to Kephas, or “I belong to Christ.”.” Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you or were you baptized in the name of Paul? …For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the Gospel, and not with the wisdom of human eloquence, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning.

      “Think, how today, it hurts the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ.”(Facts).

      Now Facts, here you go with your bull again; there is absolutely no place in the Bible where the word of God teach that Jesus has a sacred heat. That is another philosophy of Roam!

      Prove me wrong by quoting any scripture where the Bible speaks of a scared heart of God, or human Remember Jesus Christ is God, he is the one who created heaven and earth, and everything within.

      This sacred heart thing is what your pope, and priest teaches. That is why they have what is called their sacred heart society in their false religion. I would like to see you dress in your white dress, and your red ribbon around your neck with that piece of cheap alloy metal cross walking with your hand clasped on your breast.

      I know how it works Facts, me mama ad me grand mama was in that thing all it cost them was to buy there red ribbon, and cross along with their rosary to put money in your pope pocket!

      • @ Telemaque: “there is absolutely no place in the Bible where the word of God teach that Jesus has a sacred heat”.

        Your cockroach, you need to stop that stupidity; you are sounding extremely FOOLISH

        I said before–there is no way a person can speak the Bible without the vocabulary, as given to the mind of that person, by Holy Spirit. Also He gives us different vocabulary to speak the same idea, which is the same Truth –are you not familiar with synonyms and antonyms?

        Another word for SACRED is HOLY, as the Christ, Jesus, the Man of flesh and bones was Holy. or else He take the identity of worldliness (secular); but Jesus continued to tell us that: “He was not of this world” I am not defending Face the Facts!

        You excuse yourself when you speak of the Bible Scriptures–by saying it is not verbatim–which means you are speaking the Scripture according to your understanding. The only way you are different from is, is that we speak the truth.

    There is a spiritual dilemma and problem in Dominica alright. There is also an immoral one.
    The spiritual dilemma is, too many religions in Dominica which surfaced some years ago. I have previously stated, Dominica could do without those religions which came about some years ago. They create division and disunity to the point of lack of love and peace, discord, hatred and enmity. Some have projected this very well on DNO.
    Dominica is too small for all those religions no doubt with more to come.
    Unless these are gotten rid of nothing good and satisfactory will be done in Dominica.
    God is not a God of confusion, division and disunity. He is displeased by all these new religions. In His time He will do something about that.

    “Telemaque the pastor has no religion, he is a Christian and Christianity is founded on a personal relationship, in Love, with the God of Spirit, in Love, Truth. and Righteousness. Christianity is not a religion.”(Elizabeth).

    Well Elizabeth, let me see how are you going to get out of this one? I could define religion simply as anything with a large following; in that case both party’s the UWP, DLP, any other including the DFP political party’s are considered religions, because they all have large following.

    Let me expand on this: Religion is defined as the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, God: or gods, (theism). It is a relationship between science and religion, it is a particular system of faith, and worship; it is a pursuit, or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance. Christianity is also defined as “the religion based on the person, and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, or its beliefs and practices.”

    If that is true and…

      If that is true and correct, I don’t know; the question is how can you say Cameron has no religion?

      We can also add Christian quality, or character: Concentrate on the first definition, and conclude if Cameron has a religion, or he is one hundred percent Christian. You call me a cockroach, I accepted that as a new high for me, and that is why I need you to explain Christianity and religion so that even I this cockroach here can understand nuh! If you have not yet check your mail from the other forum, do so you will see some new pictures of your lover boy (me de mighty cockroach).

      Hahaahahahahahahhahhahhhahah

      • Tele,aque you can talk here through 100 entries defining religion, that won’t take you no where with me–for your beliefs are from your head, I do not need them.

        Yes, I know that there are religions all over the world, and yes also, many Christians view the relationship with God as a religion, because they are carnal and doesn’t have the Holy Spirit to teach and guide them–but God said NO WAY! I want nothing to do with your religion

        The following is the Words of Jesus, the Man Himself. He says that to the unbelieving Jews, who were conformed in their religious beliefs

        “Thus you have made the commandment of God of no effect by your tradition. Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying: ‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
        And honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me. And in vain they worship Me,
        Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ –@Matthew 15; 6-8

      • I repeat Jesus’ Word: “THUS YOU HAVE MADE THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD OF NO EFFECT BY YOUR TRADITION” In other words, their religion.

        Tradition can be said in other terms such as CUSTOM, PRACTICE, HABIT, BELIEF and of course, RITUAL–the thing of religion! But Jesus says all of it is about the philosophy of man–it is not of God, for religion does not apply faith, it does not glorify God’s Love; for those people who do religion do not know what Love is.

        Now I say that Pastor Cameron has no religion–and I hope he speaks that about himself–because being a Christian, myself, I am fully aware that I do not belong in religion. We do not have Pastors, Preachers, or Evangelist, in no other churches (even though those other groups do not identify themselves as churches) except the Christian Church–therefore Pasto Cameron cannot be both a Christian and a person of religion, as the saying goes:

        God wants Spiritual Fruits–NOT RELIGIOUS NUTS1

      • I need you to explain Christianity and religion –Telemaque

        If you had read my comment thoroughly, you have noticed that I explained the difference between Christianity and Religion. But I have spoken this fact time and again pertaining to Religion and Christianity.

        But most of all, you should have known that the Jews (Israelites) gave Jesus up to death, by crucifixion, because He would not abide by their religious rules–I mention Matthew 15: 6-8–that scripture speaks loud and clear pertaining to God’s rejection of Religion.

        Once again Christianity is the Church which Jesus founded, though His disciples and by the Power of Holy Spirit. Christianity advocates Love and faith demonstrates Love through the particular Christian for the glory of God.

        Religion is based on the philosophy of man–it worships all sorts of Idol, including man himself–for example why does the Catholic Church refer to the Pope as Holy Father?

        Need I say more?

    Why Dominicans. Are not demanding that existing laws be applied.an individual goes before the court for child sexual abuse,pleads guilty,gets ten years removed from his sentence,then his lawyer tells the judge he did not waste the court time gets another ten years removed.he is sent to. Prison for 5 years to be served concurently and in 2/12 years he is out in the community praticing his trade.

    Get real people! Not everything someone says has to be political. The only reason most of you here on this page are taking it personally is because you all are forever thinking that whatever is said by any religious leader is said against your political party or your parl.rep.Secondly, it was a rally for everyone! All political parties, and persons in government,business institutions were invited to attend. Suffice it to say, they chose not to come. Some political people chose to come, you can’t tell Lennox Linton not to come because he is the leader of the opposition and decides to show his face and there’s a picture taken of him smiling. How arbitrary can we be in this country?What if it was the P.M?I mean come on, let’s not act stupidly and say stupid things. Am certain most of you weren’t even there to give support! Thirdly, the pastor did say he sent a letter to the P.M concerning taking legal action, there has been no response.

    The Bible is not a religious book, it is a book of laws, a history book, given to us by the creator to tell us in this time who we are and how we came to be in the state we are and how to get back to being at the head of all nations as the way the creator intended.
    Now for all you who already have your finger on the ref button, the evedence is in the book of Deuteronomy but I suspect even if you bother to read it the same pride of your of your father (lucifer he was a liar and a murderer from the beginning) will blind you from the truth so go ahead with your negatives and prayers but the creator wont be listening why would he when you do not care about his laws and statues
    Our ancestors made a covenent with the creator and broke it so we are inckudedin their punishment even in this time so i’m afraid all your hail mary’s are a wadte of time because you do not do his works.

    These so called pastors are living in their fantasies and teaching the same false messages of the enemy who enslaved us.
    I’m amazed by the constant out pouring of prayers to the creator while we still refuse to obey his laws and statutes and still expect him to answer.
    The biggest religeon in DA is catholic and they more than any encourage us to sin, they put up a false image of Jahosua, the do not keep the sabath holy eat all the unclean things that are forbidden celebrate pagan festivals break all the creators laws and commandments and still expect salvation.
    Your pastors should be telling you who you really are, the true Hebrew Isralites sent into captivity (the house (ofJuda and Levi) in the Caribbean and North and South America (the book of Deuteronomy) for disobediance of the creator and told us untill we turn our face back to him to do his laws and commandments we can pray all we want but he will be deaf to our prayers.

    The church is not ready to deal with that problem. Many of the pastors in attendance, were bought by the gov’t. They presented there flock as sheeps to the evil money of the politicians. Many churches were bought and sold for slaughter. Hence why the church is powerless to act. Pastor you must first begin to whip the very pastors sitting in front of you, this will take you to the root of the problem.

    If the church wants to truly make a difference in terms of child abuse they need to provide the necessary services and training to help people. Join forces with the massively under-employed child abuse department. Child abuse is political in the aspect that every school should have a trained counselor and teachers should have a greater focus on child behavior and treatment training. It is not simply to preach more and hope people listen, the problem is that we do not have appropriate outlets for people to get help. Community clinics should also have counselors.

    Before you come on DNO and write nonsense as that in the quote you had better get yourself a King James version of the Bible and study it: Note: I said study, and not simply read, and you had better ask God to give you the knowledge to understand what you read, because nobody has ever come to the understand of the Bible, based on any form of scholastic education, those who depended on self, and mere education, they are the false prophets out there causing people like to believe such nonsense!

        My brother, I believe that your knowledge of African history needs to be done so that you can understand what I wrote and what religion is all about. Let me tell you that I truly do not need a copy of the King James version of the bible, concerning who king James was. If you do not know then I suggest that you do some research. I also consider the bible, especially the new testament, more rubbish that what history proves.
        I also consider a fool as someone who refuses to accept the truth especially when it has been research and proven. It appears that you are a well-read person but you must also allow time to do some research which will give you a different perspective on things.
        Don’t ever deceive yourself by thinking that you know it all because history is very vast, especially African history. Also, try to stay humble because pride goes before a fall.

        When Jesus sent His 12 disciples out on their mission, one important thing which He said to them was: “Whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet.

  23. 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.”–News Article

    This is PLAIN TRUTH here and I am glad that it is coming from the mind of one of us–a man of the Church himself. I also hope that this acknowledgment does stop here; otherwise it is the same as saying “We have work to do” but no one is doing that work.

    The Book of Acts tells us: “The disciples were called Christians at Antioch” Act 11:26.

    Therefore, as Christians, as the Church of the LIVING GOD, we need to realize that we are much more than church goers; we are disciples of Christ Jesus. And Jesus gave us the authority to go out and Preach His WORD to the world –as we demonstrate RULES AND LAWS of LIFE, which are the, PRICIPLES OF LOVE–the WORD ITSELF as He taught us to do so.

    • There is no way with God, if we do not have faith; faith which is just as profound Love, the Spiritual Person of God Almighty, Himself. For that reason Apostle James tells us “faith without works is dead”. James 2: 26

      Even if Salvation comes by God’s grace through our faith, when we have Salvation, God wants us to apply that faith in us as we put on display, HIS PRINCIPLES OF LOVE–the ways of Life itself. For the world to see. The Church of God, need to put on the ARMOR OF GOD–Ephesians 6: 10 -20–and to consistently keep it on–it is not the dress for a Sunday gathering.

      Without that Armor, the Spiritual ATTIRE, designed with every weapon of the Spirit that is needed to do battle against the enemy, we will constantly face defeat.

      And so I completely agree with Pastor Cameron; we are in conflict, crisis, strife, disdain, and discord, in Dominica, for we have allowed the enemy to overcome our mind; we need to stop him before it is much too late.

    I would like to touch on your statement that when truth departs the enemy takes over…Well truth never departs.Take Adam & Eve in the garden. JAHOVAH was right there with them and they still fell to the lie of the evil one.And so, it still is to today. There’s truth and era and we choose which one of the two we wanna go along with.If you would notice YESHUA always made mention of two. Two roads,a broad and a narrow.Sheep and goat,there’s no in between.It’s either you’re on one or on the other.In one or in the other….
    Again…Dominica is no exception..what befalls the other nations will sooner or later befalls Dominica…YESHUA does not view words as meaningless as we do…It is not for spot that HE said, WILL HE MEET FAITH WHEN HE RETURNS BACK TO THIS VERY EARTH. HE is saying to us things has to hit rock bottom..and I’m convince that’s what we are seeing.Yes, the church has the answer,not religion..but again be reminded of another saying from YESHUA…

    What’s the objective of this rally, and what is the pastor motive? we are using this serious problem as a political object and its, we need and must address the problem as a people/country and leave the politicians out of that because as a united people/country can not and will not be move…….

      The objective of this rally was not political. It was to address the greatest issue of the day in Dominica, namely the sexual abuse of children.

      For 2,000 years the church as advised emperors, kings, presidents, and prime ministers about how the Word of God relates to the laws of their nation, and the behavior of the people including that of the rulers themselves.

      Not all rulers and nations accept Godly advice. Great men have fallen from high places. Nations that refused to give God His proper place have gone into decline. But the church has a responsibility to speak for God. It can and it must. That is exactly what took place at this rally.

      The Lord Jesus said:

      “Ye are the salt of the earth; … Ye are the light of the world….” (Matthew 5:13,14)

      Salt prevents corruption. Light dispels darkness. When people accept the Word of God they receive the benefits. When they reject the Word of God they suffer the consequences.

        Rev. Hill

        From your frequent comments here I understand you to be living outside of Dominica. If that is the case, please do not attempt to state as if you know for a fact that the rally was not political.

        Some of us live here and see and hear lots of things which are not necessarily reported here objectively, so if you are relying on DNO to keep you abreast of what is happening in Dominica you will certainly have a flawed perception.

        For example, a lady named Delia Weekes has been on an almost one man war on child abuse for years. She has got petitions, she has spoken, she has pleaded etc. An elderly lady from Wesley was brutally raped and otherwise savaged. Other elderly women were raped. There was a rally at Wesley against those activities. The Pastors were right here all that time but their voices were not heard.

        But this one is really hot and would have been even hotter if the alleged perpetrators had been from one party, so their voices are now heard.

    Good job pastor Robin.
    let me admonish you to stay clear off any political party.
    yes, i know yOu are a citizen and have a right to support a party of your choice
    That you will do at the polls.
    Do not alliw any political party to buy and use you.
    Speak and declare the truth of God.
    God bless you and strengthen you.

      AMEN :!:

      I would say the same to every bishop, pastor, or evangelist.

      Stay focused.

      Read what the Apostle Paul wrote to the young preacher Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:1-5. This scripture was read at my ordination service many years ago. I knew it was God Himself speaking to me in a personal way. In fact God is saying this to EVERY Christian who serves Him in public ministry.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

    Pastor Robin, the problem is religious because there are so many different religions that the people are confused. Ever since our fore-parents were converted to religions things have not been the same. Those who captured, enslaved, sold and separated our forefathers, forced their religion on them. We have been worshiping the god of our enemies and we cannot find our way back to our spirituality. Before colonisation, our forefathers had a spiritual system in place and they did not worship the god of their enemies. Ever since Christianity was introduced to us, we have lost our way. Can’t you see or don’t you realise that the more churches there are the more division and confusion exist? Christianity does not free one’s mind as far as his or her history is concerned. Some people are so adamant about reading their bibles that they refuse to read any history books. When the people of this nation start to open their eyes, then there will be change.

    • out of south city
      April 16, 2016

      Why is it that the more churches there are the more things have changed for the worse? If any religion was the answer, peoples’ lives would be different. Even the church leaders are corrupt, so you must realise that being a religious person does not mean a thing. I know some people who are not christians and they live better lives than those who propose to be christians. It’s not about what church or religion one belongs to. It’s about one’s spirituality. There is a difference. Being in tuned with the forces of nature is all about spiritualty and not about religion. Christianity, Mohammedism/Islam or Judaism cannot do a thing for anyone. If all of these major religions were directed toward spirituality there would not be all of these problems in existence. If you do your research, you will realise that all the native people around the world were tortured by the Europeans who invaded their countries and brought their religions which was forced on them.

        We need to stop serving the white man’s saviour, jesus christ. According to Walter Williams, author of The Historical Origin of Christianity, “christianity and other religions are the instruments of political and social control. They are the mechanism by which western governments exercise direct and indirect control over their populations.” He further said that “there has never been a man that ever walked the earth in human form of any race, creed or color by the name of Jesus Christ.”
        Awake out of the religious stupor, my people and rise again to your great African spirit!!

      This is totally untrue.

      The slave traders who came to Africa were not true Christians. Some had a vague connection to a so-called Christian denomination in their homeland but most had none. Many were drinking men driven by a desire for financial gain. Religion was the last thing on their minds.

      It was not the slave dealers who took the gospel to Africa. It was Christian missionaries from the U.K., the U.S.A. and Canada who went to Africa with the good news of Jesus and how men and women could be saved by believing in Him, and receiving Him as their Lord and Savior.

      The same churches and missionary societies that sent them built schools, hospitals, and orphanages in Africa. Look closely! Today they are digging wells to give the people clean drinking water and operating feeding stations to feed hungry children. They are operating clinics to treat lepers and ”safe houses” to rescue girls and women from the sex trade.

      • April 19, 2016

        This work continues. It is being done for the most part by white Christians sponsored by churches and missionary societies in the U.K., the U.S.A., and Canada. I know what I am talking about because my wife and I personally poured over $8,000 (Canadian) into these projects last year alone in countries including but not limited to Africa.

        We have friends in Canada who came from Africa. They say the greatest day in the history of their respective nations was when the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ reached their shores.
        These people know their history. They do not hesitate to tell of the change Christian missions made in their nations, and how it helped their ancestors. Some of the stories would bring tears to your eyes.

        There are many large Christian churches in Africa. Christianity is growing on the African continent. Unlike Islam, Christianity does not grow by the sword. It grows by love and good works.

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. International Evangelist.

      • Reverend Hill it is difficult to convince people like “out of south city” pertaining to God Almighty and Jesus the Son of Christianity.

        That person believes what he or she read in a book written by another human being–but he refuses to believe the Words of the Bible which was inspired by Holy Spirit in the minds of man

        There is so much a person needs to know about Jesus, before they can begin to know what Life in Love is about, but no one can know about Him, without the wisdom of Holy Spirit–Jesus said to His disciples, @John 15: 26 -27

        “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me. And you also will bear witness, because you have been with Me from the beginning”

        Men like Walter Williams, are they who is blocking people’s mind and destroying their faith, writing books for the sake of money in their pockets–they are the ones fooling their readers.

    I thank DNO for giving us this report fro the rally with Pastor Cameron Robin.

    I agree with Pastor Robin’s statements. He has addressed what is likely the greatest problem of evil in Dominica today: that of child abuse and mainly sexual child abuse.

    I must hasten to admit Dominca is not the only nation to have this problem. Unfortunately it exist in many countries including my own.

    I see three causes to praise God in the pastor’s address.

    (1) The evangelical pastors in Dominica are aware of the problem.

    (2) They recognize as Pastor Robin has stated what the causes of the problem are.

    (3) They know what must be done to reverse this diabolical onslaught.

    There is only one entity that can help and that is the church of the living God with its God called and anointed ministers, along with its born again membership who are equipped with all the provisions God has given for their warfare.

      I am not talking about a denomination. I am referring the great company of the redeemed composed of ALL who have received Christ as their personal Savior regardless of what denomination or independent

      I am not talking about a denomination. I am referring to the great company of the redeemed: ALL who have received Jesus Christ as their personal Savior along with the weapons he has provided for their warfare. When they are mobilized “one shall chase a thousand, and two shall put ten thousand to flight.”

      These belong to various denominations and independent congregations. They must be loyal to their own local congregations but not become hung up on their denominations! I encourage believers to look at the
      larger picture of things and become “kingdom minded”.

      There is a war to be fought against the powers of darkness in our day. And do you know something? I have read the last chapter of the Book.

    Cameron, as a chip from the same stalk: or as some say in our village of Wesley “block” I am telling you if you say the main source of the problem is not politics, you are deceiving yourself!

    Politics is indeed the major problem, politics is in the church, preachers are bought by politicians who rather than preach the word of God has used their pulpit to promote certain politicians, by influencing their congregation to vote for these corrupt politicians.

    It is common to hear preachers use the same rhetoric you indulged “the enemy and his force against the nation.” The enemy you are referring to is Satan.

    However, whereas the Bible identifies the devil as the enemy, it also identify him as the god of this earth, and went on to advise believers in Jesus, and his Father Jehovah to resist the devil, and he will flee from us!

      I do not know what’s your religion, but I would hope you studied the word in depth, and has the knowledge from God; the know how to present the word of God to your congregation or anyone who listens you because simply saying satan has unleashed himself on the nation is not going to change anything. In our day, there was no child abuse according to what we are experiencing today.

      We got whipped, and was told the reason parents where chastening us. People did not go around raping children, adults did not go around with mind altered on cocaine, and Marijuana, though we drank rum young. My first drink of rum was served to me in your grandmothers rum-shop by your late uncle Bennett. That was on a Boxing day your father Franco, in the dance hall upstairs on his saxophone rising hell, my late daddy Hector on his guitar, in the days of the band “RBO” though we drank young we never loose respect for our parents.

      If we can eliminate the mind altering substances from our society life may return to some form of normalcy, but then again, whereas even some so called officials indulges in illegal substances to earn money, the authorities may have long ago decided to shut their eye to the importation of drugs into the country. Have you ever thought of it that way.

      If you are a disciple of Jesus, called by God to preach his words, I advise you to preach his words, and do not concern yourself with the politics of the day, when the word of God is taught, and it is written in the hearts and mind of people they will not involve themselves in drugs, child abuse and rape, and killing; they will use the word of God to resist the devil, and he will flee from them, and there shall be peace in the nation!

      And just incase you are wondering who is this cockroach nobody talking, be in formed I write under my correct name, and your grandmother the late Mildred mother, just happened to be me biological…

      • Telemaque the pastor has no religion, he is a Christian and Christianity is founded on a personal relationship, in Love, with the God of Spirit, in Love, Truth. and Righteousness. Christianity is not a religion.

        We, Christians who know this, maintain that relationship of Love through God’s Person in Love, Christ Jesus, who revealed Himself in the flesh and bones, as the Son. However He tells us: “Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father–Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me John 14: 6-11

        Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is One God in Essence–Eternal Spirit–anyone who is a Christian should know that, for it is evidence of Eternal Life in that person.

        I said this because you constantly speak about God as if He is separated from Jesus. Jesus wanted people to believe that He was “Christ” and Christ is Eternal Spirit. ” There is One Lord, One Faith, and One Baptism”–The Lord of the Old and New Testament is the same Lord

      • April 19, 2016

        Mr. Telemaque:

        This is an good comment.

        The first two paragraphs are right on target. I share your appreciation for the word of God.
        Hebrews 4:12 tells us ”The word of God is quick and powerful (alive and full of power) …”
        I believe it is all sufficient to meet every need in society today. But it must be preached and taught. Among pastors there is a certain unspoken rule that you do not criticise another pastor
        so I must be careful what I say. But I am deeply troubled over the lack of clear gospel preaching in the churches, even in those that claim to be evangelical. The word of God is not being expounded and taught as it ought to be. Holiness is scarcely preached anymore.

        But I will not be muzzled! Too late for compromise! I am 73 and do not have a lot of time left so I am going to be more radical than ever :!:

        Rev. Hill

        Did you say that there is an unspoken rule that pastors do not criticise each other? Did you mean in public? If you confirm that this is what you are saying then you have a lot of work to do with the same brethren who are now trying to convince me and others of their holy intentions.

        Why didn’t you comment or perhaps you did, on the acrimonious outburst by one pastor against another on this site? As one blogger is saying, ordinary church members or even people who do not go to Church would not have treated a brother or sister in the manner that this particular evangelical pastor attacked another right here on this site.

        At least one of the members of the Pastors’ coalition who is leading the charge on this matter was the one publicly attacking his brother in the worst way for praising the Prime Minister and he is now trying to convince me of his holy motives in writing to the Government and waiting for an answer? Give me a break!

    Religion and Politics seem to be forever entwined in most countries.
    When the two disciplines (which are both part of modern day living) can co-exist without having to rely on / dictate to each other, is the time humanity might make some progress.
    I am of the view that they are both built on rocky platforms which rely on a dependent, faithful, hopeful populace.
