Suspected witchcraft in Parliament office: Religious leader says the days are evil

A top religious leader here says residents should be mindful of the devil’s devices and not take for granted, acts of such nature.

According to police reports the assistant secretary in the Legislature Department – that is, the Parliament – reported to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) that some unknown person had used an unknown powder to mark two crosses on several chairs in the office.

This incident – the motive for which is unknown – reportedly occurred between 4:30 p.m. on January 25 and 8 a.m. on January 26.

Bishop Charlesworth Browne, the President of the Antigua and Barbuda Council of Church Leaders said this is a serious matter and should not be taken lightly.

“The words of the Apostle Paul in Ephesians chapter 5 in the area of verses 14, 16, and 17, these verses tell us about redeeming the time because the days are evil. Antigua and Barbuda, the Caribbean, and many people of the word today have departed from the word of God…”, he said

Browne said what may have been manifested [the powder to mark two crosses on chairs], would have been a part of those who take counsel from the ungodly and sit in the seat of the scornful as the Psalmist wrote.

“Looking at this, I do not take it likely. No child of God, servant of God should take it lightly. We need to soldier on and recognize that dark times have come upon us but light always defeats darkness. Whatever the motives, whether the persons have been meddling, or the person seemingly knows what he or she is doing, there must be that remnant in our land who subscribe to the bidding of Jesus,” he said.

“One needs not to be afraid but for the child of God, be firm, steadfast, and immovable because light defeats darkness” he added.

        Has.the minister ever experienced witchcraft? Did he see the crosses on the chairs? The minister jumps to a conclusion without any fact because powder on a chair in the form of a cross does not equate to so called witchcraft. There is no such thing.

    Leviticus 20:6 KJV
    And the soul that turneth after such as have familiar spirits, and after wizards, to go a whoring after them, I will even set my face against that soul, and will cut him off from among his people.

    Balderdash!
    Satan must be laughing his head off at the silliness of those who, clothed in religion, would believe that the powdered image of two crosses on the seat of chairs in parluament is something to be taken seriously. Somebody is having fun at the expense of superstitious people.
    As old people say: “Jumbie know who to frighten!”
