Dear Editor – Please grant me a space of your esteem column to voice out my concern due to this question “what SSEC can do about it in regards to Kemuel Kalani statement earlier, ‘I’m just a SSEC pastor, not a king or prophet’” and his group still part of the South Sea Evangelical Church (SSEC).
Mr Kalani was so proud and confident to make such a bold statement publicly on the media.
This is not a joke or fairy-tale for us – it’s a serious matter to deal with rather than public making fun of us.
Sad to see and hear SSEC members have been drifted by false teachers and teachings even involved in Cargo Cult movements and animistic practises.
This is not the right thing for SSEC members to do in regards of its teaching and doctrine.
We have seen men are mixing philosophy (man’s wisdom) with God’s revealed message and this is causing confusion and divisions.
Different preachers have their own “approach” of God’s message; and some even invent their own vocabulary.”
As a pastor it seems to me we leaders, pastors and co-workers of the church are sleeping spiritually. We are lax in our responsibility to teach God’s Word.
Paul admonished Timothy to, “Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage-with great patients and careful instruction” 2 Tim 4:2.NIV).
It’s time to awake and work not watch and criticise others or ourselves.
It’s time to guide, nourish, teach and visit our local churches in our associations and the region.
We must make good use of our opportunity God gives as Apostle Paul stated in Colossians 4:5.NIV.
And it’s a command for all of us; “we must work for God there’s no room for excuses, all of us has a task to do.”
Jesus said “as long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me.
Night is coming, when no one can work “John 9:4.NIV.
What can we do about this?
