island politics

People from the island and its neighboring islands are very alive nowadays. In spite of the very trying life they are in, or we are in, everybody seems to be in the go. There is a big hush! its election time! Money is expected to be floating everywhere. Election means money, It is endemic, it runs in the veins of the people. Some are trying to ascertain who started it all.
Was it the voters who asked first? or was it the politicians who bought the people first? I would say that this phenomenon started more than sixty years ago.

Mind you most of the people from these islands are very intelligent people, they know that they are being fooled by these politicians. But it is so amazing because after all the bright thinking that they do, they still end up being in the bag of these politicians.

Does it mean that the politicians are far more brilliant than the voters? Of course not. It is self interest, the thought of oneself alone, they are responsible to themselves only and to no one else.

But there is always hope, yes beyond those clouds is a light of hope.

man an animal being

Cain could be the culprit. Perhaps this beautiful being created by God had been radically remade. The good book says that God created Adam and Eve, one man and one woman, but why is it that when God banished him away from paradise, away from His grace, for murdering his brother, he (Cain) found someone he called his wife from a very far away place. Could this creature he called wife be one of the creatures God created before man, to help man tend the earth? Perhaps a cave woman, or a Peking woman or maybe one of the neanderthal or perhaps an upgraded monkey? Then definitely their off springs were 50% holy and 50% animal. Science is right, I could therefore be .00001% holy and 99.99999% animal after that so many years ago.

But then God promised that we can still be holy? Jesus Christ has claimed that He had shown shown us how. Perhaps it is love, an unconditional love for man. To be able to lay down one's own life for his brother.

Yes, I can walk tall, I could still be a 100% holy after all.
