I applaud and support the Prime Minister’s stand not to rebuild churches that were destroyed by Cyclone Winston. From a Christian perspective, Christians need to understand that at times God uses what he creates as his weapon of destruction. God created the earth and everything in it. He created the seas, the waters, the wind and the ground. As in the days of Noah, God used the waters as a flood to destroy the earth. He used fire and brimstone to destroy Sodom. God also uses the wind to create destruction in Egypt in the days of Moses. He used the ground to burry Core and his followers for disobeying Moses. The problem with Christians today is in believing that when destruction comes through hurricanes (wind), earthquakes (ground), tsunamis (seas), flooding (water), they say it is mother nature and do not believe that these are the wrath of God on people who disobey him. That is why God has sent Cyclone Winston to destroy the churches in Fiji because building churches is disobedience to God. The bible says in Act 17: 24, “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwell not in temples made with hands.”
The bible clearly states that God no longer dwells in churches made by men’s hands. Christians need to ponder if God is not there, who then is in the churches today?
The book of 2 Thesolonians 2: 3-4 states that the sons of Satan now sit in the churches and are being worshiped as gods. I urge the Prime Minister to keep up the good work he is doing and not to bow down to those blind Christians who fail to see the light of the word of God. discrimination.
