PM, I beg you to stop the lawsuits


EDITOR: As a friend of the Police, and seeing that Bibles were given to them, I am wondering if these Bibles were different from what they were accustomed using, because I believe that every Police Station already has Bibles.{{more}}

I am asking that some of these Bibles be shared around our country because our country really needs healing.

I congratulate the Adventist for doing a good job by sharing the Bibles. I am also hoping that the Hon. Sir Louis Straker sees that all the parliamentarians and the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Christian Council (SVGCC) get copies of these Bibles because they may be special. This will surely help them to play their rightful role in helping to make SVG a peaceful place. I had been appealing to the Christian Council to do their work, and it fell on dead ears for years now, but I will not stop because I am hurt.

I may be small but not a coward because God is my deliverer and I am sure THAT I AM NOBODY’S FOOL, and the Christian Council needs to take my advice as a single man. Read seriously Matthew Chapter 5 verse 9: “Blessed are the peace makers for they shall be called the children of God. “That’s the responsibility of you, the Christian Council, to settle differences. Call a meeting with our P.M. and people who he claims offended him, settle the matters and avoid lawsuits. It’s really causing more malice, envy and hatred in our land. What sense does it make when some of us keep on praying for healing of our land and our P.M. at the same time is in the courts settling matters and causing the world to laugh at us?

I can now see that the wave Hairoun, Home of the Blessed seems to be changing rapidly. Even our judges are being tested by the lawsuits. But I want to tell them 2nd Chronicles Chapter 19 – from verse 5 where Jehoshaphat did set up judges and said to them “Take heed what ye do, for ye judge not for man but for the Lord who is with you in the judgement. Wherefore you let the fear of the Lord be upon you; take heed and do it; for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.” He also said to them: “Thus shall ye do in the fear of the Lord, faithfully, and with a perfect heart.”

I want to know why so many Christians are just sitting down and allowing things to go on for such a long time now. “Stop the lawsuits”! How can we expect God to forgive us when we do not forgive our debtors: Matthew 6:12.

To my Prime Minister, I believe some around you only pretend love because they would try to get more people vote for you and not to scatter. So PM, I beg you to stop the lawsuits. I rebuke you because open rebuke is better than secret love. Proverbs 27:5 and love cannot be in secret, remembering that God answers prayers. Love to all. So think it over, judges; resign than handle such lawsuits.
