Augustine God allowed Skerrit to be Prime Minister in a time like this

Evangelical pastor, Peter R. Augustine, has described Prime Minister, Roosevelt Skerrit, as the best Prime Minister Dominica has had so far, saying it was God who allowed him to be in such position while the country faces the ravages of Tropical Storm Erika.

He made the remarks just before praying at the handing over ceremony of 300 Petrocasas by the President of Venezuela Nicholas Maduro at the Douglas Charles Airport on Wednesday.

Augustine said he was taken to task when he called Skerrit Dominica’s wisest Prime Minister last year but, “I think it would be remiss of me not to say something about our esteemed Prime Minister and I thank God for you sir.”

He added, “I believe I said it once, and the press took me to task. And I repeat it here that I believe that God knew and God knows exactly why he allowed us to have this Prime Minister for such a time as this. And I still believe that he is the best that we have had in this country so far. I thank God for you sir, and not only that I believe that in no uncertain terms you have shown the level of leadership that you are capable of demonstrating.”

Augustine even tried to be prophetic.

“And if I may be bold to be prophetic, I also have no doubt that in years to come when other nations will face disasters as we have had, or worse than we have had, they will look for you, your counsel, your advice and your experience,” Augustine noted.

He blessed President Maduro saying that his country will be blessed because of his gesture to Dominica.

In 2014 Augustine was again given the role of delivering an address on the occasion of the official funeral service of the late Bishop Bill Michael Daniel. During the address he described Skerrit as one of the country’s “wisest” leaders.

    Skerrit was warned not to spend that kind of money on Melville Hall Airport he disobeyed because he was protecting staunch Labourite and former Wesley rep, see what happened everything went to the ground -GROUND ZERO- Skerrit Declared u s $27,000 000.00 soft loan to Dominica to build the State House, that is the only loan i know of, the windsor park sports stadium -Grant money, the airport Roseau road -European union Grant money- The West Coast Road -Chinese grant money, State College -grant money,
    Dominicans were warned by A Alleyne on q 95 radion that the P M took two loans totalling over 1 billion dollars from china, when this declaration was made the chinese embassy in Dominica came out and clear the air and said that this loan was not from the government of China, at this years budget the bomb shell was thrown on Dominicans that the country was owing over a billion dollars in loan when under this same administration we went through austerity measures,

    “He” owns the police force, he owns the evangelical churches (which is a disgrace on the pastors part), he owns civil servants and hospital workers, he owns all the lazy folks on the island, he owns all DEM Chinese, he owns all the big business owners, (give them tax break) he owns all the uneducated people on the Island, and whatever “military troops” on the island. Every leader – (bad, good and de ugly) have their time. Dominica will once again belong to Dominicans. Don’t give up hope. England ruled us; now communist China and Russia through the incompetence of skeritt is ruling us. :twisted: :twisted:

    Pastor Rod and Leatham every Friday on their radio show if they are not doing it now was doing during the political season speaking clearly against the government none of the their listener and callers said are thing, why cause they were against. Now Augustine speaks for the government and the majority is whipping him am here to say lets not be hypocrites, we don’t like the statement because of spiritual interest we dislike it cause we ourselves are against; lets not only whip Augustine but all the other pastors too that do it.

    Its really sad what we have become now as a nation. Its really saddening where we have become. We were given a chance to reconcile, we have not. I fear that what is to come will be terrible. I am praying for Dominica. I am not worthy to be God’s foot cloth but maybe with the prayers of the prayer warriors we will be spared.

    Peter R Augustine, the biggest disaster that ever happened to Dominica is the election and the repeated stolen re election of the DLP under this questionable PM Skerrit surrounded and ably supported by YOU,(not a pastor) and the other so called senior counsels. It s ashamed that you Augustine and others sit in the comfort of your homes while poor Dominicans continue to suffer under this Skerrit led regime in poor housing , no toilet, no running water and you out promoting disguise loyalty while Dominica continues to face doom and gloom and taken back another 20years. The first 20years taken away from Dominica was whence first the DLP under Skerrit came into power.
    Peter R, Augustine, we will pray for you….that Dominica is saved and protected from you the PM

    When it pleases Him, God raises up men of virtue to guide us. When it pleases him, He raises up evil men to punish us. The same God who gave us the holy prophets also raised up Pharaoh then hardened his heart so he did not set the Israelites free. I believe Almighty God Himself wants to whisper something important in Pastor Augustine’s ear about how to identify men of virtue accurately because not one of God’s genuinely virtuous leaders has been a filthy rich leader of a dirt poor nation. Sadly, the pastor seems to have lent his ear to another god while the one true God waits patiently for a hearing.

    He told you the true and challenged you and the guilty consciences cannot stand it.
    Some D/cans love to spew hatred. Bad enough they do not like to hear the truth. If they do not support someone, they detest hearing anything good about the person. Some of you are really bad. You lack love, respect and peace. You are in no position to criticize anyone.
    If you do not want to hear this while you are still alive and reject it, where will you hear it?
    Do you not know that God has taken note of your words?
    Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “By your words you will be acquitted and by your words you will be condemned.”
    Beware of Satan’s mutilation and his broad road. You are giving him a lot of leeway.

    So why wont you allow my comment to go through? Should i dress in red and lie instead?

    I know very little about this Pastor here, but I will accept his commendation about Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit, in that I have read from him; I have heard from him; and I have seen his works both in pictures and physically –I was in Dominica in 2008 and 2013, that is the reason my plan is to return home and to die there –by God’s Will. I will not doubt what the Pastor said; Tropical Storm Erika has highlighted that truth.

    Nonetheless that is not the primary reason for this posts–I had no intentions of posting here at all.

    But my conscience cannot tolerate the fact that so many of you are completely ignorant of God and His Ways, and yet you all are speaking so full of yourselves–your filling is nothing but stupidity; lacking, wisdom, understanding, the reason you do not have the teachings of God’s Holy Spirit in you.

    If you did, you would know that you do not need a man, like yourself, to teach you about God –He promised to do that on His own.

      Please read the following Scriptures below

      Cyrus, God’s Instrument—meaning His weapon—Isaiah 45<<<<<<"I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things".

      The days of the great Tribulation– Matthew 24<<<<<< "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

      Sixth Seal: Cosmic Disturbances—Revelation 6<<<<<< "And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves and in the rocks of the mountains, and said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of Him who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”

        Those of you being full of yourselves–of stupidity and garbage–and ridiculing the Pastors remark–that God played a role in the brutality of that storm against us, if you can understand what the scriptures are saying above, then you need to put your foot in your mouth, so to shut up!.

        For you are arrogantly speaking against things that you do not understand–and I am saying it again; you have no wisdom and understanding about the Ways of God in Life so be quiet!

        God is of “Love” and “Holiness”; His Love is in Jesus, the Son, who will execute mercy and on compassion on our behalf, but His Holiness cannot tolerate the sinful ways of man. God is slow to anger, but the time comes when His wrath will burst out from His Holiness; those who are in the way will suffer the pain–there is no exception for us in Dominica.

        We human beings, need to fear God and obey His commands–just examine your attitude here, all of you. how much reverence you have for God?

        All I can say is that it is unfortunate and regrettable that as Spiritual Directors, we miss the golden opportunities to preach God’s words, give him all the praise , honour & glory. Instead, we praise Politicians, worldly men who lie, steal, cheat and fool the people while they enrich themselves. Although we hear of all their evils: Villas, Garbage bin bobol, land transfer deals, unaccountable sale of passports, money laundering thorugh their acolytes: We do not judge them publicly, but why do we praise them publicly for their duties and responsibilities? Why are we even prophets for their future political roles of disasters to come? SHAME! SHAME! WE HAVE LOST OUR TESTIMONY AND OUR RESPECT!!!!!!!! WE WILL ANSWER TO THE MIGHTY ONE WHO DESRVES ALL THE PRAISE, ALL THE HONOUR AND ALL THE GLORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The country has lost respect for Petros. He babbles, peeps and mutter about the PM whenever he gets the opportunity; it is obvious that Petros wants something……………..probably an ambassadorial position. Quite frankly, Petros is no authority on determining who is “Best PM” or not. He has not distinguished himself as an authority on the subject. He is no prophet, no seer; maybe a familiar spirit at best. So, Dominicans, don’t raise hairs on this man’s pronouncements; don’t lose sleep over his utterances. He is a Charlatan; looking to be noticed.

    Peter Augustine

    This is what you said
    He added, “I believe I said it once, and the press took me to task. And I repeat it here that I believe that God knew and God knows exactly why he allowed us to have this Prime Minister for such a time as this. And I still believe that he is the best that we have had in this country so far. I thank God for you sir, and not only that I believe that in no uncertain terms you have shown the level of leadership that you are capable of demonstrating.”

    PETER AUGUSTINE…..DID GOD CALL YOU TO SAY WHAT YOU STATE HERE…???

    Augustine even tried to be prophetic.

    “And if I may be bold to be prophetic, I also have no doubt that in years to come when other nations will face disasters as we have had, or worse than we have had, they will look for you, your counsel, your advice and your experience,” Augustine noted.

      Clayton, I keep referencing how many disasters occurred in the United States, Japan South Central America, and else where, since the storm in Dominica. They all are more destructive than what we suffered in Dominica. As recently as yesterday there were a nasty accident Washington State causing the death of many people.

      I would like that guy to tell me if that is the work of God. Further more in Mecca, more than seven (700) hundred people were killed in a stampede, while performing a ritual of stoning the devil. Now if the devil is an enemy of God, and the Muslims stoning the devil, why would God cause the people who were fighting the devil to get killed in that stampede.

      That man Augustine or whoever he is Simi-literate, or simple illiterate, and is using the name of God pretending to be a preacher, there are lots of whom failed in life, so they turn to masquerading as preachers, be we know that the disciples of Jesus were all educated men i. e. Luke was a medical doctor by…

        “be we know” should be ‘but we know.’

        “there were a nasty accident Washington State causing the death of many people.”

        That should red ‘there was a nasty accident in Washington State,’

        This morning a speeding police office in Los Angeles talking on his cell phone ran into a car driving in front of him. I would like that so called preacher if God is responsible for that accident?

        I think just like all the Roman Catholic priests who are paid by Skerrit to influence their congregation wether they are a dozen people or a hundred, he also might be a recipient of something from Skerrit, either that or he is mentally ill, and is a danger to himself, and society. In psychiatric terms the man seems to be 5150!

        Who do not know what 5150 imply, they can talk to Griffin Benjamin, he will explain it!

      • September 27, 2015

        “be we know that the disciples of Jesus were all educated men i. e. Luke was a medical doctor by”–Telemaque

        Luke was not a disciple of Jesus Christ–he wrote his Gospel based on information he gathered about Jesus and His Ministry on Earth– after Jesus’ ascension into heaven

        Jesus disciples were not educated men–they included Fishermen–Peter and his brothers; John, and one of the Judases–not Judas Iscariot. Matthew was a tax collector, and a few more regular men.

        You need to come to terms with the fact that God is not interested in the education of man to man–better known as human wisdom and philosophy.

        Read 1st. Corinthians 1: 26-31 you will find information such as: ” But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise” etcetera

        You seem to be denying that God does not have wrath–meaning He doesn’t get angry–if that was true, we human beings would have no hope of protection in this world of vultures’ existence, would we?

      • September 27, 2015

        Also, when the Israelites left Egypt they were heading to the Promised–Canaan–which they would call their own, and yet there were people inhabited there–what do you think happened to those people?

        The stories of the Old Testament tells how often the Israelites thought against those different tribes of people and they had victory–because God was the leading Soldier on behalf of His chosen people.

        You need to stop this attitude of speaking so boldly, as if you are at the top of knowledge itself; for many of us, you are making a fool of yourself–because the things you say has no grounds.

        Don’t you know about the 10 plagues which came against the people of Egypt because of Pharaoh’s hard heart? The last plague to kill every first born child in Egypt came by his own command–that was God’s plan also.

    Peter R Augustine seems to have short term memory loss or selective amnesia to suit his purpose. In a previous article on DNO, this same Peter R Augustine indicated that the passage of Tropical Storm Erika was a “sign of the times”.

    Quoted from the same article “I believe God is speaking to our nation, that God is speaking to Dominica and one of the things that I observed we have preached division, we have preached confusion, whether it is religious division or political division, our nation has been divided.” … “We have spoken so much division, the words of our tongue: they are powerful and it is important that we understand, we as Dominicans should be a lot more positive in the things that we say.”

    He is doing exactly what he was preaching against then; overtly and boldly preaching division.
    As an Evangelist your message was to call upon the name of God and thank him for the blessings received in the form of these houses and to remain neutral in your stance. That’s…

    If Peter R Augustine were a member of any other serious denomination, he would not be using his mouth or to preach those sermons of hate, division, and sinful that he has engaged himself with. He is only doing it because the Pentecostal churches are once again demonstrating the emptiness and unholiness that once existed.

    Since PAWI has failed to take a decision to stop Peter from leading the church in disrepute, I have officially taken a decision to withdraw myself from the People’s Pentecostal Family Church and I am calling on all offended whether they are UWP , DLP, or DFP to do likewise.

    There are many good spirit filled churches in Roseau besides the PAWI church for me to stay there and take this nonsense. Unless we stand up they will let it continue and who knows who else might follow Peter’s way?

    Our silence means that we are in support of the views of Peter Augustine and to show we are not, we need to stand starting this Sunday.

        It is unfortunate that I cannot support my Pope, if I believe he is an intelligent human being that thinks before he speaks and whose intensions are to unite people and not divide them. Obviously, the Pastor’s statement might offend approximately 17,000 Dominicans.

  20. Gospel Light
    September 24, 2015

    As a Dominican Peter Augustine has a right to support Skerrit and he has a right to believe Skerrit is the wisest and now best PM Dominica ever had. However, it is wrong for a person who claims to be a servant of God to make those ungodly, devilish, and political statement Peter has been making and even worse, one such statement was made during a state funeral, carried live in the presence of all the herachies of PAWI.
    As a Pentecostal myself, I am ashamed and embarrassed to know such person is part of my congregation and often preaches at the peoples church and other Pentecostal churches. The once well respected Pentecostal Assembly should be ashamed, if there is any spiritual pride left in them.

    I take this opportunity to call on the current leadership of PAWI Dominica district, current Pastor of the people’s church, and boad to ban Peter from going on the pulpit. I am also calling on former PAWI pastors like: Pas. James Bell, Pas, St. Claire, Pas. Nation & others to speakup

    Gal. 1:8 I can’t believe your fickleness—how easily you have turned traitor to him who called you by… embracing a variant message! It is not a minor variation, you know; it is , an alien message, a no-message, a lie… Those who are provoking this agitation among you are turning the Message of Christ on its head. Let me be blunt: If one of us—even if an angel from heaven!—were to preach something other than what we preached originally, let him be cursed. I said it once; I’ll say it again: If anyone, regardless of reputation or credentials, preaches something other than what you received originally, let him be cursed- MSG version.
    On Sept. 9/14- during Bill Daniel’s official state funeral, Peter discribed Skerrit as one of the country’s “wisest” leaders.
    Peter again sep. 5:2015 “one of the things that I observed we have preached division, we have preached confusion, whether it is religious division or political division..”
    What else must Peter say PAWI?

  25. September 24, 2015

    I don’t understand why these men of God get so deep into politics. Is this evangelising Peter Augustine? I used to have so much respect for you as a man of God. So many people have lost strayed away from God, because of the lack of the word of God. This is your job to preach the word of God in and out of Season. When was the last time you have won soles for God. Please allow politicians to fulfil their purpose and you too full fill yours and stop being emotional and blind to politicians disguise under your “bold prophesy” as you called it.

    You need to use your influence as a man of God to win the PM and his cabinet to God. I wonder if you were preaching the word to them if you would still be in their bossom.

    Don’t let your actions as a man of God deter people from coming to know Christ. I hope you ponder on . Let our light shine before men that they may see the good works and give glory to God NOT TO MAN.

    PRAISE AND THANKS BE to this President who so selfless gave these 300 hundred homes and who is currently bullying a CARICOM island that has also contributed to the relief efforts on Dominica.

    I never do understand how people are so blinded by the way in which Dominica is being governed.

    What Skerrit should have done is declare a State of Emergency, just like St. Lucia did back in 2010….instead he came up with a BS excuse why he did not, while his followers blindly supported it without making their own investigation into the impacts of a state of emergency…..ask St Lucians, if their rights were infringed upon when a state of emergency was called after Tomas in 2010…….the damages that they recorded were nothing and i mean nothing compared to what Dominica experienced.

    those with a mind of their own all know the reasoning behind Skerrit not calling a state of emergency….. NO ONE WILL KNOW HOW FUNDS RECEIVED WILL BE AND IS SPENT!!!

      I advise you research the Laws governing the proclamation declaring Dominica a state of emergency, this is regulated by the EMERGENCY POWERS ACT CHAPTER 15:02 in fact here it is http://www.dominica.gov.dm/laws-of-dominica?page=1 i did it for you so READ!!!!

    Thank God for men like you Peter R, and thank God for prime minister Skerrit. It is God who appoints governments and God placed you in this position today because He knows you are quite capable of handling and dealing with the situation at hand.

      Peter Augustine was not appointed by The Pentecostal Assembly of the West Indies to preach hate, politics and division in and outside the Church building, Peter Augustine the same wealth and worldly things, the wrong doing he preached years ago, these are the very same things and people he is sucking up to today,as a born and raised member of The Pentecostal Assemblies Peter Augustine need to go, in the days of Pat and Connie Martin what Peter Augustine is doing to the Assembly today, these things would be a no, no, preaching politics in church intead of what he was called to do, the members would contact office in Trinidad, Barbados or wherever to get the false prophet out. You said that he need to do what he was called to do, if politics, hate, division etc is his calling he need to stop fooling God and the Assembly and go to be amongst the dead, where he cannot find a living, instead of taking Jesus as his King and Master he is sucking down to wrongdoers

    Peter i agree with you 100% this is the BEST PRIME MINISTER we have had!!!!! I can qualify that statement with the numerous good he has done:
    1 Increase tax thresh hold from 12k during UWP and DFP reign to 25k annually and not forgetting the relief on interest paid on mortgage and student loans up to 25k and 5k respectively.
    2 The removal of all hospital fees for citizens 60 and above and 18 and below as compared to the era of UWP and DFP who actually increased Hospital user fees and included ALL AND SUNDRY FROM 0 YEARS UPWARD
    3 The ‘Yes we Care’ innitiative
    4 The one university graduate from each household policy working quite well
    5 Ensuring every community has pipe borne water which before Erika we could boast of 95% achieved
    6 The significant improvement in our road networks, especially from Marigot to Roseau.
    7 The introduction of Night Landing
    8 The Geothermal innitiative

      PS. Where is Reginald Austrie. Is he ill, as is rumoured? he was conspicuously absent at the ceremony at Melville Hall yesterday, especially since he is the Minister of housing and Petrocaribe. His name was not even mentioned. Did they give him the North Korean treatment?

        Titiwi, we are talking about the POLICIES OF THE DLP and not the actual operations cause as you may know the hospital has its own administration staff that manages what you spoke about, Skerrit do not MANAGE the hospital.
        “We have to seek expensive treatment overseas, that is freely dispensed to members of the Govt.?” Are you saying that from an informed position, cause from what i know everyone pays at the hospital you speak of irrespective of colour race or religion or status in society… Most of us have Insurance that assists us others go to for assistant through the gov’t PUBLIC ASSISTANT PROGRAM dubbed the red clinic by the likes of you.

        Finally from my sources Reggie is ill i see no need to further discuss the man, at the right time a public statement will be made on his condition… BTW OUR NEW HOSPITAL IS STILL COMING SOON!!!!!!!!!

        This is a working gov’t that has done and will continue to do well for this island!!!!!

    – The economy have been dilapidated there is no production
    – The countries debt is the highest that it have ever been in the history of Dominica, without the benefits
    – This government is the most corrupt that it have been ever in the history of the country
    – Unemployment is the highest that it have ever been in the history of the country
    – The level of the rigging of the elections is the highest that it have been in the country history

    Deuteronomy 7:1-2 says “When the LORD your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it, and clears away many nations before you, the Hittites and the Girgashites and the Amorites and the Canaanites and the Perizzites and the Hivites and the Jebusites. Seven nations greater and stronger than you, and when the LORD your God delivers them before you and you defeat them, then you shall utterly destroy them.

But here it is happening right now and it makes me very happy. Members of the queer community should not have to live in fear. People always point to God and the bible to discriminate against gay people, but there are so many other sins in the bible. Imagine what would happen if were to discriminate against fornicators, liars, and people who worked on the Sabbath. Imagine the chaos that would ensure. These people are not seeking extra rights, nor are they infringing on your rights.

    Peter Augustine , in his warped, confused mind, felt that Dominica was facing many problems because of the names of two of our mountains, namely, Morne Aux Diable and Morne Diablotin.

    The Pasta proposed a name change to Skerritt’s DLP Gov’t. Pasta Peter re-named the mountains, Morne La Paix and Morne …………. (fill in the blank). Skerritt bowed to Pasta’s obsession, changed the mountains names.

    Since the name changes, Dominica witnessing less crimes, less corruption, good governace, economic development, standards of living have risen, getting better, farmers producing more, jobs a-plenty? Give me a break !!!!!! illusion!!!!!!

    For the Pasta, is God that tell Skerritt to give 15 acres of our land to foreigner?

    History reminds us that many like Pasta Peter, missionaries, priests, many people, across the Board, supported slavery and the slave trade. They worked religiously for Massa, praising him, at every opportunity, totally blind to the sufferings of…

As a citizen of Dominica you are entitled to your opinion, but shame on you when you are performing a function on behalf of the Christian community, to try to lead others astray with your empty pronouncements.On what basis are you anointing Skerritt as the best leader?These are just empty words and you know it.To declare one thing or person as better than similar others,you have to use facts to compare them and let the numbers speak. Because you are a leader of men,you seem to believe that all men are fools and your empty sayings will suffice and your opinion is the most important one,because you are a leader.By comparing the facts for economic climate of the country now compared to previous leaders it is not even close.These are the worst of times.Don’t give me excuses,because great leaders know how to make lemonade when they are given lemons.The economy is the worst its been.

    September 23, 2015

    Here are some qualifications of a pastor according to Titus 1:6-9, and tell me which one that does not live a BIG question mark as far as peter is concerned:

    If any be blameless, the husband of one wife, having faithful children not accused of riot or unruly. 7 For a bishop must be blameless, as the steward of God; not selfwilled, not soon angry, not given to wine, no striker, not given to filthy lucre; 8 But a lover of hospitality, a lover of good men, sober, just, holy, temperate; 9 Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. I will never say anything bad on a man of God but this man Peter R Augustine has displayed over the years that he is no longer a servant of God, and is now a full fledge politician and a servant of his master Skerrit. Jn. 8:44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. If Skerrit needs true spiritual help he will not call Peter

  59. The Evangelist?
    September 23, 2015

    DNO, we need to call a man by his rightful name. A Pastor is one who pastors a flock. Where does the rollingstone Peter R Augustine pastor? Where and when was the last time and place this man pastored? Is he a Baptist pastor? Is he a gospel mission pastor? Is he a Christian Union Pastor? Is he a Pentecostal pastor? As a Pentecostal myself I don’t know him to be pastoring any of our churches. I know after the death of Rev. Bill Daniel he applied to pastor the peoples Church, but he was rejected because he is not one of us. So why refer to this man as pastor? The title bestowed on him causing people to dislike pastors and Christianity even more, since Peter might not be any.
    If the man is a pastor maybe is the pastor of Skerrit Church and that would not qualify him to be referred to as pastor, since Skerrits church contradicts all the teachings of Christ. Peter is a disgrace to Christianity and should not be referred to as pastor.

    He should be referred to as a Servant of Skerrit.

Do you mean that Dominica has progressed by leaps and bounds under him, because that is the yardstick by which you judge a leader. I suspect that you mean it in a personal way because he gives you all the material everything you ask for.
    COME ON MR. AUGUSTINE, YOU ARE NOT SPEAKING TO A COUNTRY OF FOOLS. THERE ARE A LOT OF INTELLIGENT PEOPLE HERE. MAKE SUCH A LOOSE UNSUBSTANTIATED STATEMENT TO YOUR BLIND FLOCK BUT DO NOT INSULT THE INTELLIGENCE OF MOST OF US DOMINICANS!!!!

      Anybody who was prime minister at this time would have received as much help from the outside world, and the Caribbean, and perhaps more: People and governments who has donated to Dominica, did not donate because Skerrit is Prime Minister. They donated because there is an emergency in the country, so they donate to help those people who are in bondage of poverty, kept there by Skerrit’s incompetent, and lack of ability to develop the country to an extent where people can work to earn a living rather than going to his red clinic to get a few pence to buy food for one day!

    Papa DOC and Baby Doc could only have ruled Haiti as dictators, because they had the blind support of pastors and priests, doctors, Lawyers, professionals, ordinary folks. Many were benefiting either directly or indirectly from their dictatorship rule. they did not care two hoots about the economic, social, cultural or spiritual development of the Haitians.

    That pastor is as bold in his partisan political stances. he makes no bones about it. He finds nothing wrong with anything wrong as regards the bad governance of our country. Skerritt and his Cabal have done no wrong. He has proclaimed Skerritt as the God-sent Messiah or Massa.

    Pasta Peter just cannot be himself, unlesss he grovels at the feet of Skerritt. That Pastor finds nothing wrong with corrupt Leaders.
    Those pastors and priests like Peter continue to sing for their supper. Peter, who is your God?

    Peter Augustine I am wondering how Pastor and Sister White is feelings today with what is taking place with the Pentecostal Assembly of The West Indies, also Pastor John Nelson, Pastor Enoch John Baptiste and the many other great and respected Pastors who started the Pentecostal Assembly in Dominica many years ago, those who are still with us today regardless of them being out of Dominica, they never preached hate, they never preached division, politics, even so closing churches to go and campaign for no political party, which is taking place today in Dominica, Pastor Augustine send your resignation to the Head Office and go serve your master Skerrit, for God is not fooled, you should be familiar with this song
    If we forgot God, Satan will rule
    if we forget God, our nation is doomed
    If we forget God his mercy will flee
    And sin will cover the land and sea

I am not a spiteful persom, I am not one of the many calling themselves priest, pastors, prophets, evangelist, pretending to be Godley, Holly whereas at the same time preaching, teaching hate, division , supporting wrong doings, commending church goers to vote for the party the false prophets supports, Pastor Bell is not the issue at hand, Peter Augustine is ok, Pastor Bell moved on, I never sat in church in Dominica in the days of Pastor Bell, Pastor White, Pastor Jackson, and the rest listening to them preaching politics in church, the
        way Pastor Augustine in doing today, back in the days what is taking place today would be a no, no, Pastor Augustine is a judas looking for his
        share of the pieces of silver, Augustine many are called few are chosen,
        and not those who say Lord Lord will enter the Lord’s Kingdom, but

There is no investment which has grow the economy agriculture productivity manufacturing is dead and construction is has slow down when there is no growth by your economic drivers it will lead to economics stagnation and recession Please take into consideration he receive the most grant funding yet still the debt has grew years poor management. can you please respond. i wont put my name because fear of political victimization

      September 24, 2015

      Gartel I am quoting you “he might be the wisest politically” referring to the Prime Minister. So you are recognizing in your commentary that the Prime Minister is wisest politically… :wink:

      The article referencing Evangelical Pastor Peter R Augustine was referring to the leadership of the Prime Minister in this time of crisis, it was not referring to the Prime Ministers’ accomplishments and or failures managing the economy therefore I did not comment on his ability to manage the country’s economy. And, I am not going to be drawn into this debate since that is not the topic of discussion with reference to the good evangelist’s commentary. :wink:

        Bill it is peoe like you who have the country in such a mess. One cant declare a PM the best and isolate his/her pergormanve on the economy. In fact the economy is the primary fovus in analysis of a PM’s performance. It is the case with leadership everywhere. So Bill ig you must express an opinion on the matter girst be objective,honest and well intended. It is such bad taste and shameful when educated people behave so foolishly. Ot is arsinine to think that Peter Augustine is making any isolation when he makes his declaration.
        As for me Bill Skerrit xant shine the shoes of Eugenia nor Edison. He does not match up on intellectual capacity integrity, ability to think on feet, ability to motivste peoe (after all there is no doubt our people have become mendicants). As for economic performance Bill I am sure you can be honest with yourself before trying to” veglais” anybody

Please dont tell me becsuse somepnr signed eith China as oppose to Taiwan csuse that would be lsughable. Do ehat else is there to analyze Bill other than the economy. I am sure that Peter Augustine was not tslking about the bedt dimples or bedt corruption.

        Porssie! two questions: 1. In your opinion what do you think are the requirements for a person to hold the office of Prime Minister in the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica and what other qualities should such a person have to hold this esteemed office? and 2. Some people are of the opinion that the economy has been under performing, and has been on the decline; and, the recent passage of Tropical Storm Erika may further complicate economic activity and likely cause a further decline in growth. What course of action, in your opinion, you think the country should take to turn the economy around and put it a the road to growth and productivity. If you require some assistance there is a gentleman with the initials SD who sells ice creams who could give you some good ideas in order to respond to these questions.
        I am not a politician or economist neither am I any one’s paid or unpaid agent. Why would you so maliciously accuse me of having the country in such a mess? :lol:…

    When a Prime Minister can deprive twenty workers of their daily bread, his government is alleged to be involved in corruption, his police force can use expire tear gas against man, woman and child, a minister sitting in his government cannot account for charitable contributions, as far as a man of God is concerned, he is the best Prime Minister, maybe, he spends to much time surrounded by the walls of his church reading his bible and does not have time to read the local news or even hear the cry of the people.

Action and deeds tell a man and if your opinion of PM wiseness is based on his actions then something wrong with your head. Do not mistake cunning with being wise. Though they appear to be the same the underlying motive is different. I feel sorry for your flock.

      His body mind, and soul is controlled by Skerrit, and Skerrit’s politics. He is the epitome of a fool; the worst kind of poppet to be born, in Nero’s day in Rome, some who proclaimed to be Christians, denied they were, when ask why they are in denial, they responded, “because of fear for their life.”

      He is opening his mouth in Skerrit’s favor, because he might be living in fear of Skerrit’s, and the labor party’s victimization. Or fear of loosing whatever Skerrit is giving to him.

      He is the kind when his name is not found in the book of life unless he repent, will ask Jesus, didn’t I drive out demons in your name?

      He will be told to depart from God, because God knew him not! The man is a fraud, a liar too, he lies on God, there is penalty for that he had better mind he is not struck dead, one of these days when he is using the name of God to score points from Skerrit: He must be made, who knows!

    September 23, 2015

    Was Peter R Augustine present when Matthew Walter referred to Skerrit as “Jesus”? Has he ever condemned it? Was he seen delivering election packages during the last election like UPS or FedEx? Is he the same person that told us last month that the message he and other ministers once preached was nation dividing and wrong? Is he the same Peter R Augustine that took on the speaker in the 90’s for trying to stop the preaching of the gospel?

    As a Born again believer I now question this man’s salvation. If what he now has is Christianity, I sure don’t want it. The man is lost! He is blind and not even Skerrit respects him as a believer. I would much rather listen to Pappy than to go and listen to Peter R Augustine because he no longer has it.

    If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked. Pro. 29:12. This passage was no doubt written for preachers like Peter R Augustin, who is clearly shown himself to be a servant of Skerrit

Some of you have prevented it, D/ca moving on and ahead by your negativity and ungratefulness.
    Some of us have nothing bad to state against the PM. He has done his utmost for D/ca and some of you never appreciated. Do you think it is unusual that T.S. Erika hit D/ca in a devastating manner? Sadly, some good people were affected. When disaster strikes a country, the good is affected as the bad ones.

    Peter R Augustine has a right to support any party of his choice. However, if he were a man of God, he would not call evil good. Before Skerrit came into power, Peter R Augustine was one of the most respected men of God on island. He was indeed a true man of God, though I must admit that it was in pretense. Today, Peter has become a laughingstock as no one takes him seriously. Peter cannot even preach freely in a DLP constituency, as no one respects him. As we speak, he and a former spiritual leader of Skerrit are bitter enemies. he has lost his voice, his testimony and ministry. Not even the people’s church wanted him to pastor them.
    When a man like Peter R refers to Skerrit as the best Prime Minister Dominica has ever had, who is surprised? The man got duty free on a car that he was not qualified for. He got passport and cash, what do you expect.

    While he has been abhorring the evils of Skerrit, he better take stock of his ministry, because everyone knows he has lost it
