PM Skerrit describes himself as disciple, instrument to assist the needy

The Prime Minister described himself as a disciple

Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit has chided those who criticize him and his government, describing himself as a disciple and instrument to help those in need.

He was speaking at the official handing over of keys to new apartments in Bath Estate and Elmshall on Wednesday, April 26th, 2017 to persons displaced by Tropical Storm Erika.

“I always caution people, people who criticize this Prime Minister and people who criticize this government for helping people,” he stated. “And I always say to people I am not doing these things for people to vote for me, I am doing this thing because I believe that we have a Christian obligation to help the poor and we have a Christian obligation to provide housing for the homeless, we have a Christian obligation to feed the poor and hungry. We have a Christian obligation to clothe those who are naked.”

He said there are people in Dominica who read the bible and pray but they are the same people who criticize the government for helping the needy.

“And these people, they are going to church, some of them are church leaders and they criticize the government for helping poor people,” Skerrit said. “I am saying to them, let me say to you again that you are not criticizing Roosevelt Skerrit because I am just a disciple, just an instrument. The Lord has placed me in a position to help people and I have an obligation to help those who are in need and I am making no apologies to anybody in Dominica for helping people.”

He had a message for those who don’t want to vote for him.

“And those who don’t want to vote for me, that is a matter between you, your conscience and your Lord because my primary motivation is not politics, my primary motivation is not for votes, it is to help people to create a better life,” he stated.

The apartments were constructed by the Government of Dominica through a soft loan from China. Over a thousand applications were received for the 60 apartments.

    Skerrit is obsessed with himself; leading the largest number of illiterates behind him blindly.Dominicans wake up.bridges, houses, hotels and other important things were built but poverty is increasing faster than ever before…Dominica cannot continue like this; remember that Venezuela offered a lot to Dominica but now the Venezuelans a dying under gov’t’s bullets and hunger.Skerrit the sea shore is not far for from any one.

    Outgoing PM, you are right, GOD asked his disciples to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, house the homeless, he also asked us to visit those in prison. Have you visited your friends in prison like monfared. corello, madukee and others? Can you also showcase those you have clothed and fed? the people on the north need free apartments too.

    Forewarned is to be forearmed. Skerritt and his blind supporters really believe is “God” that choose him to “lead” Dominica. His priests and pastors repeat that asinine thing in public. Fanatical. Madness

    So if they claim is “God” that select him, in particular, then “God” cannot be wrong. Foolishness.

    CULT. Remember Jim Jones and the sad story of his CULT leadership. That CULT leader operated from Guyana, where he controlled thousands of followers, who believed in the same foolishness. Jim Jones was their “God.” He had full control over their mind and so their actions. the CULT Leader prepared a concoction of poison and invited his followers to drink. So much under his spell and control, that they drank the poison. No questions asked. Of course, thousands died.

    “God” has been “Good” to Skerritt. the $$$$$$$$$$, the links- Monfared, Madueke, Corallo the secret deals, the passport sales, while the…

    A true disciple would say all help comes from the Lord. However help seems to come from skerrit. I guess God bless you with wealth and riches that you can give to the poor. I just don’t understand a man can make that comment. Pure blasphemy. The sad part is thier are people who actually believe he is a disciple sent by God for real. It sad today Jim Jones could still come back and make people drink poison even after he tell them he did it once before.

    I SAW what was suppose to be a town hall meeting at wesley on the 19th where Athenia made a lot of promises , roads nep yes we care the whole world including the kitchen sink and toilet .mentioned one woman is employed in the school food service through NEP and that the money paid for those services is spent in the community but she forget to mention that for years one woman with four children was employed in that job, she cooked , cleaned up and took care care of everything ,then all of a sudden her hours reduced ,salary cut to accommodate an N E P EMPLOYEE ,The question is does this provide employment or is political gimmick while while the treasure is being drained by money being thrown around as from a drunken sailor?

    As a psychology major, the “Dear Leader” would learn about such diagnosis as Delusions of Grandeur according to the DSM 5.
    “A false belief, based on incorrect inference about external reality that is firmly sustained, despite what almost everyone else believes and despite what constitutes incontrovertible and obvious proof or evidence to the contrary.”
    Whenever a politician begins to use such terms as “Disciple” to describe themselves, all and sundry should be in deep contemplation and worry, became we know that he/she is beginning to lose their marbles upstairs.

    • You all need to stop talking fart you know.

      Skerrit himself made the claim in Dominica that he is an English Major who graduated, however the University he claims he graduated from does not have any record of a Roosevelt Skerrit as a graduating Student in any discipline in that university,

      Mind you if Skerrit had any degree, as far as a doctorial degree, or a Ph. D. in psychology, do you honestly think Skerrit would have paid a non-accredited university, in Punjab India for almost a hundred thousand dollars for a worthless, bit of paper called honorary degree simply because he want to be called doctor?

      You can graduate with a BS, BA, MA, AA, or a Ph. D., in English, it depends on the level of English in which you majored!

  17. “And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch” spoken by the apostle Luke at Acts 11:26

    To those of you who are criticizing the words of PM Skerrit acknowledging himself to be a “disciple” I hope that none of you have claimed to be Christians, because you all would be the “phony or word of mouth group” who knows nothing about God and His Word. Simply attending Church on the given day will make none of you to be a Christian–get this into you all’s undisciplined, untrained, and carnal sate of mind.

    PM Skerrit has acknowledged who he is and what is his call from God as a Christian, who must be a disciple of Christ Jesus, as mentioned in the Scripture above.

    The Prime Minister’s work along with the participation of his fellow members of Government, may not mean anything to you all; for as the apostle Paul said: 1 Corinthians 2:14: “The natural man cannot receive the thing of the spirit of God for they are foolishness to him”

    • Paul has confirmed you all’s ignorant attitude, in the scripture above, which makes you all the carnal minded people without the Spirit of God.

      Meanwhile Prime Minister Skerrit has acknowledge his call from God, as the Primary Leader of our Dominica and a person of himself, who is a Christian.

      He knows what he was called to do; and he knows from whom that call came; he has chosen to obey his call and to do what he does for the for the glory of the One who is standing behind him–that is the God Almighty in His Person Christ Jesus–not you foolish people

      Now can each of you follow Pm Skerrit and tell the world what is you all’s call from God?

      Yes go on! Tell the world what on Earth are you all here for; and if you cannot do so, then you are simply useless to God, for He wants nothing to do with futility, gloom, and darkness. He has called us Christians to be the Light of the World and the Salt of the Earth. Take heed!

    • “A disciple is one who accepts, and assists in spreading the doctrines of another! As we know one of the twelve in the inner circle of Jesus Christ; followers according to the Gospel accounts. So, if you are a disciple dishing out welfare, free house, free food, free everything, who is your leader, who’s belongings are your giving away?”(FE-DT).

      Who’s disciple is Skerrit Elizabeth!

      If it is in your and Skerrit mind that he is a disciple of Jesus Christ; you are insinuating that God, Jesus Christ is involved into corrupted politics, thievery, lying, and victimization. If you believe that Gods way to appointing a leader, is by buying votes, and bribing people to vote for him to keep him in power; you are denying that a true God exists!

      Because God in his words said he hate a lying tongue, and if you keep on reading you will see what he said about people like Skerrit! Hint “wrestle not against flesh and blood.” But what in high places?

      Oh yes and Christ did not call his followers Christians. Infact to be called a Christian in those days was a derogatory name. Go back and read your Bible like the most high told you, precept upon precept line by line a little here a little there, then you will have the wisdom of his word not what your Christian doctrine teaches you, Christianity is the doctrine of men not of the most high.
      The most high told us the true Hebrew Isralites of the Bible “of all the nations you only have I known” he gave his covenant to us and did not do so with the rest of the nations yet Christianity won’t tell you that why? Read psalm 83 precept upon precept and see why they have you fooled, so you and skerrit can call yourselves what you want but the scriptures say otherwise.

    All governments in the history of Dominica have always helped the poor in numerous ways.Why does this delusional Skerritt believe that he is the first and he is ordained to assist the poor.The difference between previous leaders and Skerritt is that those leaders were honourable and honest, whilst Skerritt is more bent on helping himself whilst helping some people in his party.Gloat Skerritt,as much as you want,soon NGLap Seng will be naming names and you will have time to tell the US judge how much you helped Dominican people

    Eh papa, look Skerrit make himself a disciple. He’s a disciple of who? Jesus? So wait nuh, Skerrit was alive during Jesus days or wha.

    According to an online dictionary, a disciple is “a personal follower of Jesus during his life, especially one of the twelve Apostles”.

    Based on that definition, he could not really be a disciple of Jesus in the true sense of the word disciple. So then, whose disciple is he supposed to be?

    Skerrit, you and your backward-thinking government have deliberately kept a segment of the population in a state of poverty and ignorance so that they will forever be dependent on you. That’s more wickedness disguised under the banner of ‘helping the poor’.

    Don’t you have a Christian responsibility to be honest and truthful? These are Christian virtues. In first century Christianity, many Roman governors were kind to some of the population in Palestine, however, it was to maintain a grip on power. That’s simply what you are doing.

  33. When a man is ignorant he speaks out of context, he uses words he believes will boost, or support his wicked ways, in trying to deceive those not wise enough to realize he is tooting nonsense!

    Who’s disciple are you Roosevelt?

    A disciple is one who accepts, and assists in spreading the doctrines of another! As we know one of the twelve in the inner circle of Jesus Christ; followers according to the Gospel accounts. So, if you are a disciple dishing out welfare, free house, free food, free everything, who is your leader, who’s belongings are your giving away?

    If you are insinuating that you are a disciple of Jesus Christ, appointed to give free everything to your supporters I can tell you right now you might be the disciple of Satan, or perhaps you are under the authority of some other demonic force, as you know there are many devils. However,your gifts are not the property of God Jehovah, not Jesus Christ.

    There is no place in the Bible which teaches God ever…

    • Continue:

      There is no place in the Bible which teaches God ever appointed a politician or king to give corrupted gifts to his people for them to get by in life. “By the sweet of thy brow thou shall eat bread!” It should be about working for a living! You destroyed the economy of the country, and replaced it the sale of diplomatic passports!

      There are few places of employment in the country, I doubt there are a hundred place of employment in the entire country, if God appoint you to rule over our people I would not wish to serve that God. But knowing something about God, I know for a fact he is not upholding your corruption; he does not support corruption.

      “Render unto Caesar, the things that are Cease’s and to God the things that are God’s.”

      Roosevelt you have exalted yourself in so many ways above God Jehovah. You view yourself as a god, but you are burning in hell and do not know it, your physical days are numbered!

    disciple:
    1. a personal follower of Christ during his life, especially one of the twelve Apostles. synonyms: apostle; follower
    “the disciples of Jesus”
    2. a follower or pupil of a teacher, leader, or philosopher.

      1. Some of them were arsonist,
      2. Some were murderers
      3. and others were rapist, some took people’s wife and gave them their death sentence to carry to their executioner, yet after sorrowful repentance they were called the man after God’s own heart,
      Are those guilty willing to do the same so they may be call God’s disciples?
      You all better check the book of Proverbs chapter 15 and verse 3, which says and I quote, The Eyes of the LORD are in every PLACE beholding the EVIL and the GOOD

      • The comments you wrote are not actually true you know!

        According to the bible, if I were to consider any disciple of Jesus a murderer, I might chose Paul who was born Saul. Now Saul believed himself to be religious. As a result he prosecuted the Christians, believing the killing and prosecution of the Christians was the will of God. Mind you religion and Christianity are totally two different things, religion has nothing to do with God.

        Saul did not become a disciple of Jesus until Jesus confronted him on his way to Damascus, King David on the other hand sent Uriah to his death, because he committed adultery with Uriah wife and got her pregnant.

        None of the twelve that Jesus called and said follow me, who left their fishing trade and followed him were murderers; or rapists. To refute me I suggest you name one of the twelve who was a murderer, or a rapists. On the other hand Jesus had thousands of disciples who followed him for different reasons. Their names are not…

    Every time you hear a politician singing his own praises and giving himself godly status, that’s a red flag, run. Which politician doesn’t do things for votes? LIE! Governments should create the opportunity for people to acquire employment, land, houses and a decent living. That’s the reason they are paid so handsomely and given so many perks. This big song and dance about a few ordinary houses is overly inflated. I’ve said this before. I am not all that impressed when governments build houses, roads, bridges, etcetera. Even though these are important, they are easy to do as long as you have access to money (loans, grants, raw cash). When a government creates the economic climate, where good paying jobs are readily available, unemployment is negligible and the majority of citizens can lift themselves out of abject poverty, then and only then should a politician beat his chest and blow his own trumpet.

How can you claim discipleship over these kind gestures made by these countries. Since you are taking credit for everything, why don’t you take credit for the high unemployment rate and for tarnishing the Country’s reputation for selling Diplomatic Passports to criminals. You said you’re not doing this for people to vote for you, but at the same time you’re questioning the conscience of those who refuse to vote for you. What a contradiction!

    “I am just a disciple, just an instrument.”

    If God was the God of yester-years, a lot of us would be struck down.

    Acts Chpt 5 – Ananias and Sapphira
    Chpt 5 – Now a man named Ananias, together with his wife Sapphira, also sold a piece of property. 2 With his wife’s full knowledge he kept back part of the money for himself, but brought the rest and put it at the apostles’ feet.

    3 Then Peter said, “Ananias, how is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you have lied to the Holy Spirit and have kept for yourself some of the money you received for the land? 4 Didn’t it belong to you before it was sold? And after it was sold, wasn’t the money at your disposal? What made you think of doing such a thing? You have not lied just to human beings but to God.”

      5 When Ananias heard this, he fell down and died. And great fear seized all who heard what had happened. 6 Then some young men came forward, wrapped up his body, and carried him out and buried him.

      Thank You LOOK IT,
      I support that passage very much 100%+ But you know what it’s not only the 2 of them that would die, all the supporters would die too for they were not lying to man but to the HOLY SPIRIT, especially those EVANGELIST and the PASTORS IN D/ca

    The Roman Emperors knew that the secret to exercising peaceful rule over the people was to provide them with food, housing, and circus. The DLP owns the circus and they control the bread. Now the Dear Leader has become the self described disciple. It is important to note that Judas was also the disciple of Jesus who controlled the money bags. He spoke often about helping the poor as a way of concealing his sinister motives.

    God is good all the time and all the time God is good. I pray for everyone. All politicians. All Dominicans. That we, as a people may move this country forward despite our political alliances. Despite the set backs and negative vybes. That we may all be prosperous. In the almighty’s name I pray. Amen

    PM it is never too late to call upon the Lord, but those who use the Lord’s name in vain is what the concern should be about.

    Now there seem to be a mix up with what is politics and what is not.

    the very establishment of Government is a political affair, so I don’t see how the words from a political minister is not politics.

    The people of Dominica don’t need help from you. The People need an economy that they can thrive within. While I don’t see how a Government can provide jobs for every citizen in a country, there must be an avenue that the Government can utilize to employ a targeted number of a given population (say 55% – if this is a viable figure)
    If this has never been exploited, I say that the Government has failed.

    So for you to stand and say that you are a disciple is a bit giving yourself pats on the back, which is a very dangerous and critical ideology. I suggest you wait for either the praise or the criticism to come from the people of the country.

      Well I do believe the government employs more than 55%. So in essence it’s the private sector that is falling short. I guess we’ll blame the government for that too

    “I am saying to them, let me say to you again that you are not criticizing Roosevelt Skerrit because I am just a disciple, just an instrument. The Lord has placed me in a position to help people…”
    I am speechless. I guess what you are saying is people who criticise you are criticising God?
    Madness abounds!

    The Bible also stated that your right hand should not know what your left hand is doing. I am A political when it comes to Dominica and politics. I believe however that both parties are in great need of hiring a PRO most preferably someone who have no attachments to Dominica. PM Skerrit stated that one of his obligation is to help the “poor”. That term is subjective, what makes one poor? Am I poor because I do not have disposable income to purchase the wants of life or am I poor because I am unemployed and cannot make ends meet? Suppose I am poor in pockets but rich in heart? Think about it.

    We cannot keep wearing our emotions on our sleeves. Dominica, people are making a mockery of us and the way in which we handle situations. Let’s stick to what’s outlined in the party’s Manifesto and be more professional in our responses to situations.

      Quoting that passage of the Holy Bible is wrong in this case. He is the PM. He is expected to inform nationals of what he has done and plans to do. If he did not, those of you critics and negative p ones would shout, “Be transparent.”
      The passage of the Bible refers to “personal almsgiving.” It does not refer to the government, helping its people. This shows how much you know about what is contained in Holy Scripture. You people show yourselves to be which is why some of you Christians do not live by what is contained in Holy Scripture. You misinterpret it according to your mentality.

    How are we helping them create better lives if you just giving them handouts? Mr. PM. I agree with some of the things you do but that handout vibes needs to stop. Help create the opportunities for job creation and small business development. Teach them to fish sir, stop giving them fishes.

    You do not have to be in politics to do that. And the only way to keep in politics is through votes. You use God in your lies and deception. Now you are a prophet and deciple sent by God. Smfh. You BJ, and father Thomas should form your church cause you better than Jesus. Skerrit there is a special place for people like you in the pits of burning flames. You are a psychopath.

      If the need is there, the government must help its people. Those who are helped have their personal political preference.
      Your mind is small and narrow including those who think and state likewise.

    1.. Please indicate to us whose disciple are you?
    2. If you are not doing it for Votes then prove it stop doing it and continue after election. however you are contradicting you self because in the same breath you said to them and I quote “I put you in a house I hope you keep me in the house”

    3. As a Christian we are called to give for true however you forget the most important part your left hand must not know what you right hand is doing so why do you go on boasting all what you give tell me is that part of you Christian duty.
    4. As a Christian we are not called to belittle those who are needy and have them begging us each time meaning to line up under financial centre or Village council offices etc to beg. Did God say do that. I really want to know because before some gets something from you all the world has to know and if the person says anything you and your followers have to throw it in the persons face how we help all u and all u ungrateful. So whose disciple are…

      Completely out of context. How you wish he would stop saying what he is doing. A house is a big gift to give to some one. You know when you take a loan and build a house it takes you like 18-20 years to pay back. If your child gets a scholarship to study overseas it takes between 3-7years to study and that costs money. When your child comes back , do you have a student loan to pay back to the bank? When you or a family member is sick and needs assistance overseas, the money is given, the passage paid and you are well taken care of, do you have to pay back anything? These are but a few of the things we are all ungrateful about and wish PM never talk about. But he must say all the things he is doing since the opposition always wants to know what he is about. So he is mandated to speak and that he must do.

      The minds of some of you are warped and wicked. You willfully misconstrue everything and turn it into what it is not; what was not said and what was not meant. You need to cultivate your brains.
