I would like to address the despicable
and most disrespectful comments levied toward an outstanding Commissioner of
Police; by those of who should know better due to the office they presently
hold as members of The Bahamas Christian Council.
is it, that all it took was a simple Gambling Referendum to bring out a dog-like attitude and behavior of the supposedly LOVING, CARING, COMPASSIONATE, LONG-SUFFERING,
Christian Council; to the point that they’ve even gone as far as to try and belittle
the office and function of the Police Commissioner?
say to the ill-informed members of the Bahamas Christian Council
is still a country of democracy.” Every citizen has the lawful right to
make application to the Commissioner of Police to hold a non violent
absolutely no doubt that our Nation is divided for various reasons and on
various issues; and you (supposedly, anointed, Holy Spirit Filled / Led) Christian
Council Members, due to your press conference after the YES-Campaign to the
referendum demonstration on Bay Street Wednesday 23rd, Jan 2013. And
your distasteful comments and remarks about the Commissioner of Police and has
ability to Enforce Laws in the Bahamas; You Christian Council Members have done
an excellent job via your press conference in contributing to the division of
this country, and owes The Commissioner of Police and The Royal Bahamas Police
Force a National Apology; I cry shame on all of you.
a Pastor, I would really like to know; who and what give you the rights to
attack anybody, much-less the Commissioner of Police and the Royal Bahamas
Police Force? How is it that you
Christian Council members could stoop so low as to even attack the only NATURAL
agency that’s PROTECTING you, your families, your congregation and the NATION
at large? How could you allow POLITICS to bring you down to this level?
me make this emphatically clear, by NO MEANS whatsoever would I support the legalization
of the numbers games and lottery; but also, by NO MEANS would I allow my
convictions to pull me down in the gutter of slander and the denigration / assassination
of anybody’s character and integrity.
comments and attacks from members of the public could somehow be expected,
accepted and tolerated; but not from you (Members of The Christian Council),
you’re not on trial for your life and have to mount a vicious defense. And if
you were on trial, the office that you hold and the Christian Faith that you’re
supposedly ascribe calls you to a higher standard.
Council Members here’s what the bible says about Yahshua Messiah (a.k.a. Jesus
1Pet.2:23. Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again;
when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth
Bahamas is blessed and fortunate to have Mr. Ellison Greenslade as Commissioner
of Police, a man of wisdom, impeccable integrity, and character.
wisdom and integrity shows up in a world / system of corruption and confusion;
it doesn’t take much for the corrupt and the confused to speak out against, and
try to discredit / dishonor such wisdom and integrity. It’s no secret that just
about everything that we hold dear to our hearts, here in the Bahamas has a
great level of corruption and confusion strongly attached to it (ESPECIALLY our
POLITICS and RELIGION).
I’m saying is this!
Council Members check yourselves; you’ll are sounding EXACTLY like the
POLITICIANS, and you’re erroneously using “The Church & The Word of God /
Bible” as leverage to carry out your agenda.
there’s ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with the church taking a stand against
gambling and this referendum; but it can’t be where Church Leaders are at odds
with one another, and Church Leaders condemning and calling folks CRIMINALS. Might I remind the Bahamas Christian Council
Members that Yahshua Messiah came to seek and saved those that are lost; not to
very same manner in which you took to the air wave via press conference to
lambast a distinguish Bahamian (The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ellison Greenslade)
a man who has put his life on the line in FAITHFUL, LOYAL, DEDICATED service to
his country; I pray that you’d be humble and bold enough to publicly apologize
to Mr. Greenslade, his family, the Royal Bahamas Police Force and the Nation
