Chosen by God

Dharmendra Kumar, Suva

Voreqe Bainimarama winning the 2018 General Election is an appoint­ment by God.

Promotion or Exaltation comes from God.

God is the One who decides who gets promoted, when they get promoted, how they get promoted and where they get promoted. Exaltation and promo­tion come from Him alone!

Promotion may come in many areas of life. It may come in ministry; it may come in marriage, favour in relation­ships or in business. What we must realise when it happens is that it came from God.

Psalm 75:6 – For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. It is God who judges: He brings one down, He exalts another.

So, if promotion is from God alone, then it’s important to be fully submis­sive to those that have authority.

Praise God for giving us a leader who treats everyone equally.

It’s rather unfortunate that some say they are Christians, but their speech and actions totally contradicts the Bi­ble.

Everything belongs to God we are just the stewards passing through to a far better place.

So, let’s respect the chosen one and support him

God and FijiFirst Party

Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva

Let us face the solemn truth, that af­ter all our prayers for God’s will to be done in the 2018 General Election for the party and leader to take Fiji for­ward for another four years; heavens blessing and will is reflected on the majority votes of Fijians – FijiFirst party!

The big margin between the votes that went to the FijiFirst party and SODELPA means any actions or alle­gations of vote rigging etc is simply going against the will of God and the people.

I am wondering what our Christian church leaders and preachers who pre­dicted that Rabuka and SODELPA will form the next Government are saying now?

One thing we know that the FijiFirst Government has a very strong Opposi­tion in Parliament and I believe our PM and Government will raise their game another level in the next four years, benefiting all Fijians, just to rub it in and counter all the election bluff by the Opposition.

If God, through the majority votes of Fijians, gave His blessings to the FijiFirst Party and its leader, then we should all agree that He approves the name “Fijian” for all Fiji citizens, His blessing on a secular state where Gov­ernment does not favour any religion or church and that gay and lesbian marriage is an abomination to Him.

Now that God’s will has been done, let us put our political differences aside and work together so that Fiji contin­ues to soar above our Pacific Island neighbours and work towards being the way the world should be.

God bless Fiji, the FijiFirst Govern­ment and the dynamic Opposition Members of Parliament!

Election post

Wise Muavono, Balawa, Lautoka

With all the fake news that was post­ed on social media regarding the elec­tion, I was surprised no one blamed Russia for meddling with the vote counting. Hahaha.


Amenatave Yaconisau, Delainavesi

It is unfortunate that three elected members of the National Federation Party who came in on thousands of votes, are relegated to backbenchers as revealed to us by Nemani Delaiba­tiki (FS 20/12).

Some will be sworn in to ministerial portfolio on hundreds of votes, but by virtue of vote sharing they go in.

Is this representative?

Catholic community

Ronnie Chang, Nadi

Thank you, Your Grace, Archbishop Peter Loy Chong, (FS 18/11) for your apt clarification, once again, for public clarity, in reference to journalist Jyoti Pratibha.

I am very mindful of the “hurt, sad­ness, feelings of division and incite­ment” by the journalist Jyoti Prat­ibha, towards me personally and our Catholic Community, who chose to remain silent.

My sincere thanks also to Chris­topher Griffin, Perth, Australia (FS 19/11), for your wisdom towards rev­erence and sacredness, “conveniently overlooked” by the journalist in men­tion, with the grossly erroneous print­ing of picture of His Grace, celebrat­ing Holy Mass.

Journalist Jyoti Pratibha’s “loser” comments towards Archbishop Loy Chong, are, at best, callous, insensi­tive, disrespectful, arrogant, needless­ly unwarranted and offensive. Such insult, cannot and must not, be toler­ated.

A public apology from her is war­ranted.

That’s the least she can offer, in good faith, respect and accountability.
