Montgomery then told the people of Scenic Drive Baptist that there was a…

On this day, 23 June, in 1944, on Mawaraka in the Solomons, my grandfather, Sefanaia Sukanaivalu, died a glorious death fighting for his King and country under the banner of the Fiji Military. For the bravery and courage he showed on the day, he was awarded the Victoria Cross, the highest and most prestigious award for gallantry in the face of the enemy that…Continue

Marriage has but one enemy—pride. It decays a marriage from the inside out. Where pride resides, intimacy cannot be found. True connection cannot be formed. Health cannot be developed.
Marriages flourish in humility. In the absence of self-righteousness, self-sufficiency and self-reliance, marriages have the ability to thrive. In the…Continue

One does not live by bread alone,but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:3 (NRSV).
God's word provides nourishment for our daily journey.The Bible is like a letter from God to God's people in the world. It explains God's hopes and plans for us;it tells us that we are in God's thoughts and assures us of God's eternal love.It is the lights to our paths,comfort us in despair,and gives us strength.
Have a blessed Day!

Improbable? Preposterous? Alarmist? Perhaps. But by no means illogical.
The success of the same-sex marriage campaign in Ireland has advocates elsewhere in a state of high excitement, predicting that the rest of the (Western) world must quickly fall into line and legalise this concept. What then?
As we know, there is a…Continue

Marriage is all over the news today and we as Christians are cringing. And this shows how much things have changed. All of the marriage chatter, in previous generations, would have been a reason for celebration, but is now an occasion for face-palming. Of course, we know this is not because Christians have fundamentally changed in our…Continue

Read the Ruling below and stay Reminded that the Bainimarama Government Illegally Seized Power in 2006 and were Ruled to be so!
Therefore its rule, 2013 Constitution, decrees, programmes and policies since 05 December 2006 are illegal.
There is nothing in law to prevent the reinstatement of the 1997 Constitution!Continue

Text: One of the lepers,when he saw he was healed,came back,praising God in a loud voice. Luke 17:15 (NIV). Whenever I hear the story of the 10 lepers,I am amazed that only one came back to thank Jesus,where are the rest?Jesus had given them back their lives.Jesus response allowed them to be reunited with their families and to be part of their community again.
I too have been delivered from a horrible disease-sin-that would have left me an outcast just like those lepers.Salvation is…Continue

With a heavy heart I pen this piece following Ratu Naiqama's patently unjust suspension from the house earlier today. The decision also begs real questions of the Opposition given its inability to make a difference against the torrent of procedural abuse by the Fiji First regime!
We all knew it was always going to be tough as the rules of the game let alone numbers were stackec against them from the start. All realised that the:
- 2013 Constitution;
Any move to sanction the utterances of an MP spoken outside of Parliament, is tantamount to gagging free speech!
But will that make an iota of difference to an FFP government that is drunk on power and vindictive intentions? Don't think so and Fiji is now on another crest of an even more dangerous trajectory as democracy gets sacrificed by sheer weight of numbers in the guise of parliamentary rule.
Even worse and…
