  1. Whoever don't believe in the Almighty its their choice, likewise whoever believe, its also their choice. And even if some people had to believe its a frog that's in control that's also their belief. Simple quakes and it has become a war zone here. Some are acting "cruxifiction style." Let's respect each other's beliefs in a more humane way...PEACE....

  2. So many people felt the earthquake, but what does it really mean to all of you? Praying and asking God to protect you at that moment does not effect the change. LIFESTYLE CHANGE is what is necessary, but how many of us will take heed? My people, it is not the pleasures of life that will bring us to heaven...it is forsaking the pleasures and living a life pleasing to God that will take us to heaven. Ultimately, you chose this day who you will serve.

  4. I did not feel any of the quakes here in Barbados but all of my books were tossed out of my bookcase. Thank God that there were no recorded injuries island wide. I believe that the Tridents being destroyed by the Red Steels was more devastating.

  5. There is good and evil, if you don't believe in god or don't want to read the bible for yourself to know the word 'revelation' his coming then I would say you're on the other side. The devil has his people also

  6. Did god sent whooping cough to destroy us in St.lucia?Because,am hearing people going in bible making all types of comments.Regardless,all that has been predicted about god.Man has gone along way to provide us with alot of good news on a number of medical and earthly things which most of us enjoys today.

  8. I can guarantee u those looshans DAT don't want to see or hear GOD was talking to him today asking him to spare their lives. Some must've been trembling under beds. Then after the last quake, back to square one......

  9. I have heard god is love blah,blah,blah but,if some of us think that god have made natural disasters to kill and wounded people.Well,god is a terrible person.Some of us don't seem to have educated ourselves enough to know what are the causes of an earthquake?The caribbean sits on a tectonic plate.There are countries where no earthquakes has never been recorded for example Australia.So,It's time to do some research on those geographical things.And,if god destroy's people what would the devil do?I'm hearing god is good and the devil is evil.People,whats going on is the bible playing games with our minds?
