      Do not put God in your thing…we are alone, and we need to take responsibility for our words, thoughts, and deeds.

    It’s unfortunate when things like this happen to people trying to make an honest living! Hopefully, the culprits are brought to justice and shown that crime doesn’t pay.

    St. Lucia sounds like the crime capital of the Caribbean. One would get the impression that the majority of the population are heathen or perhaps neanderthals and barbarians seeking any opportunity to destroy one another.
    But what else can one expect when a nation turns its back on God and stops praying, families stop attending church, God’s commandments are ignored and flagrantly disregarded by leaders and civilians alike and materialism is the order of the day? As 2 Chronicles 7:14 says

    “If my people who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

    St. Lucia in the daytime, is more dangerous than Haiti after dark. Us white folk can’t walk in peace without some crooked beggars fingers being held out for money. Bloody hell, just leave us in peace so we can go to the beach!
