Lest we forget
THE EDITOR, Sir:
IF JAMAICANS are afraid of the repealing of the buggery law, then they should be very afraid.
While the Constitution can be deemed a 'living document' that changes with the times, the Word of Almighty God never changes according to time or season, or Heaven and Earth will pass away.
An evil for which God destroyed an entire city has been pronounced upon our beloved country Jamaica.
I saw in my vision water everywhere, buildings upon buildings and people trying to stand on wooden scaffolding and rocks. Jamaicans, be warned, God is not mocked and He is being put in file 13; but be reminded, the greater the sin, the greater the judgement. Flee from the wrath to come - lest we forget Port Royal.
But there is hope in Jeremiah 26:13, "Therefore, now amend your way and your doing and obey the Lord your God and the Lord will repent Him of evil that He has pronounced upon us".
Jamaicans, whose report will you believe?
While I will openly not condone the inhumane treatment of any gays, to them I say repent. To them I truly extend godly love. As I do have some gay friends, I am reaching out to them with love and a godly message. Jamaican brethren, please do the same.
If we cannot have a moral and a godly stance against sodomy, can we then have it against murder, rape, adultery, stealing and other sins which are all equal?
For the life of me I don't understand why it is so important for us to know that anyone is gay. Your sexual orientation is an adult decision.
We have no hatred for gays, but as Almighty God does, we should hate the sin and not the sinner. All can be saved by grace and mercy which is in Christ Jesus.
However, after all this doom and gloom there is hope to be found in 2 Chronicles 7:14,. "If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from Heaven and forgive their sin and heal their land."
All Christ-like people from every denomination, wake up out your slumber and get on your knees for the family and this nation, Jamaica land we love.
