Bishop Simeon Hall, Senior Pastor Emeritus  of New Covenant Baptist Church pleaded with the people of The Bahamas yesterday to stop the violence that is claiming so many lives of young Bahamian males. 

Bishop Hall said, “we make the clarion call on all Bahamians and residents alike to pray and trouble God’s throne for divine intervention to reach a thirty-day period with not one murder in our beloved Bahamaland.

“Christians and persons who fear God must combine our collective will for divine favour and to touch the hearts of men and women who attach no value on human life.

“And as faith without works is dead, after we pray, we must put feet to our prayers by turning in and on criminals,” said Bishop Hall.

We should intercede for the good of our Nation and not allow our political biases to hinder our prayers for our country’s peace and stability.  It is a rank contradiction for parents or anyone to pray for peace in our Land and then knowingly harbour criminals simply because familial ties or because they benefit directly from such behaviours.

“It is also incongruous to politicize the homicide rate and the level for criminality in the country base only on which party currently  is in Office.  A grieving mother is not comforted by statistics or by playing the blame game.

“Indeed, we should pray fervently, but every patriotic Bahamian who sees or is aware of something nefarious also must say something to the police or the  authorities.  Evil always prospers when good men do nothing.

“I call on all well-thinking people – Bahamians and residents, black and white, FNM’s and PLP’s Catholics and Protestants – let us all come together as a collective to put the fear of God in the hearts of those who have no regard for their lives not the lives of others,” Bishop Hall said.
