Full house as Bonnke preaches

Full house as Bonnke preaches International evangelist Reinhard Bonnke preaching to the congregation yesterday. (Ricardo Leacock)

Mon, January 21, 2013 - 2:47 PM

Thousands flocked to the Garfield Sobers auditorium as early as 2 p.m yesterday to hear the preaching of international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke during a national service of Blessing and Spiritual Renewal.

In fact, there was standing room only, with many having to stand throughout the more than three hour long service which was filled with ministry in song, dance, praise, worship and prayer.

The service started promptly at 6 p.m.

The congregation included Prime Minister Freundel Stuart, some members of the Cabinet as well as a number of pastors.

German-born Boonke who is well known for conducting city-wide crusades across the continent with as many as 1.6 million people attending a single meeting, is also credited for leading more 54 million people to Christ.

In his message he reminded is listeners that no one was without sin; Jesus loves sinners, and that He  died for the salvation of the world – Barbados included.

When all was said and done, Bonnke gve us a simple message many must have heard myriad times: that, like the woman caught in 'the act', we too have access to the grace of God through Christ. Any Christian Minister worth his/her salt could have reminded us of that. Clearly our people's fascination with the caucasoid skin tone is still very much alive - even 174 year after the abolition of slavery.

Yes, but I heard he can bring things back to life. I was hoping he would have raised the DLP from the dead, but it seems that some things are just too dead to be brought back to life.

You are so right Olutoye! It seems the more things change the more they remain the same. Bajans still seem to think that any thing coming from outside of the Caribbean is better,even if it is the same thing just because a Caucasian delivers it.

Sometimes shame falls upon my face whenever I witness the black man still in slavery and looking for <another> to save them.In this day and time, we have no leaders.

I kind of disagree with some comments here, it does not really matters who delivers the message. We are predominantly a black society also with very good preachers as well but the exchange of one coming to our shores and reminding us of our adversities and teaching what we all already know but to be fair, we cannot keep using racial arguments when our Lord and savior were also rejected by his own and wanted us to refrain from using race as we all are one family regardless of color. I thought the message was more important and not the color of one's skin. Jesus said that he will go into any house where he is welcome; Mathew were first rejected as first also because he was not of the same race and look what significant role he played as a disciple.
