Evil spirits have island in their grip

THE EDITOR, Sir:

This is an open letter to the prime minister of Jamaica.

Mr Prime Minister,

I was one of the ministers sitting on the platform at the prayer and fasting service at the National Arena on January 4, 2017, as you gave your address.

In your speech, you mentioned rightly that "having wholesome and functional families will be critical in solving some of the gruesome acts of violence" in our nation.

Mr Prime Minister, you are right again that "evil spirits have taken possession of some men in society, causing them to do savage things".

I do agree with you, Mr Prime Minister, that wholesome and functional families are needed. A proper functional family consists of a mature and responsible father and mother, only having the number of children they can properly provide for and educate.

Mr Prime Minister, continue to believe in the power of God and Christ to change lives and make Jamaica a better place.

ERROL WRIGHT (Rev Dr)
