Stand up, make voices heard
Advertisements in the media are calling for nominations for national awards in this special 50th anniversary of independence of T&T. It is expected that citizens who have excelled in various spheres of national life will be honoured accordingly. But what is the position of Christians who are nominated for a national award when this country has thrown out the Trinity Cross?
Christians make up a significant percentage of the population, and have contributed to the building of this nation in the areas of education, healthcare, geriatric care, care of orphans, battered women and drug addicts, HIV patients, abandoned children, and the terminally ill, to name but a few. Yet the country has decided to throw out the Trinity Cross since it did not represent the entire population of T&T.
It is high time that Christians in this country stand up and make their voices heard. Matthew 10:32 says, “If anyone declares himself for me in the presence of men, I will declare myself for him in the presence of my Father in Heaven, but the one who disowns me in the presence of men, I will disown him in the presence of my Father in Heaven.” If any Christian accepts a national award, they are not only accepting recognition from the state, but are also giving legitimacy to the denouncing of the presence of the blessed Trinity in Trinidad and Tobago.
This June 3, is Trinity Sunday. Let us make a decision to stand up for our faith, and bring God back into our lives and our beloved country. Let us stand up for our God—we have nothing to fear.
