Learning to walk the way of Christ

We've all heard the worldly saying before, "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, do no evil", but not many take it seriously, especially when it comes to applying it to your spiritual life.
Ministers of the word say although most Christians want to be more godly and be able to turn away from evil thoughts and deeds it is our natural predisposition to do wrong that makes this desire seem impossible to accomplish.
"Many times Christians assume they cannot be like Christ and just give up and that is not the point of Christianity," says Rev Daniel Simmons, senior pastor of Carmichael Bible Church.
"Christians need to understand the road to being godly is a long one that no one will travel perfectly.  There will be backsliding and mistakes but it is persevering through it nonetheless that brings us closer to our true potential."
Pastor Lynden O. Williams, of the New Englerston Seventh Day Adventist Church and Redemption Seventh Day Adventist Church, says many people limit themselves by assuming they cannot achieve "Christ-likeness" and often fail to try.  Although it may be hard, the minister says it is making the choice to persevere and try again every day when you fail that makes all the difference.
"Many of us don't recognize the fact that we were not designed to be perfect.  It is something we have to work daily to achieve.  Once you know that you are a sinner, and even so you are still made in the image of God you can accept we have a lot to do to overcome our natural predisposition to fall into evil," says Pastor Williams.
"The cure for this is in Christ Jesus and it requires a total surrender to him.  This is where many of us go wrong.  We believe if we just say we believe and are saved on the altar everything should be easy from there, but that is wrong.  Professing God is just the beginning."
Christians need to feed their spirituality and receive good guidance, he adds.
"Just like a child will not grow to his full potential if he is not fed good food and given good guidance the same is true for a Christian," says Pastor Williams.  "Your aim should be to be at a better place spiritually each and every day."
Although "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil, do no evil" is a secular saying, Father Peter Scott, rector at Holy Spirit Anglican Church says it does have some relevance spiritually because Christians should always be working harder to be more Christ-like.
He says what holds most people back is that they still have one foot in the world and do not whole heartedly embrace accepting God and His ways.
There are so many temptations and pressures that distract Christians.  While it is not easy to walk the path of following Christ, the priest says it is important to try.
"Christians need to continue to strive to be more Christ-like and in doing that we need to let go of the world. We have to learn how to hold onto God more and see that this world is a test.  If we really want to be more Christ-like we need simply to continue praying and worshipping God each and everyday," says Father Scott.  "We may not see it or feel it at times but we do draw closer to God and open our eyes to his mercies more and more as we continue his work."

Murders up eight percent

Murders increased by eight percent between January 1 and May 23, 2014, compared to the same period in 2013, according to The Nassau Guardian's records.
There were 46 murders recorded during this period compared to the 50 murders recorded this year so far.
In the last week, five people have been murdered in the country.
All of those murders took place on New Providence.
The most recent victim was shot dead outside a business on Lightbourn Avenue, off Farrington Road, around 5:45 a.m. Friday.
On Wednesday morning, a man was found dead inside a public restroom near Mermaid Boulevard, off Carmichael Road.
There have been 10 murders this month so far.
There were 12 murders in April.
Seven deaths have not been classified to date, including the four bodies found on April 3 on Anguilla Cay.
The bodies had tires placed on top of them and were burnt beyond recognition, according to authorities.
While Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade has provided indications of the murder trend in recent months, he has not released crime statistics for 2014.
In April, Greenslade said violent crimes with the exception of murder were trending downward.
Authorities have recently expressed concerns that crime could negatively impact tourism.
Minister of National Security Dr. Bernard Nottage said on May 6 he was "personally satisfied" that the government is on the right track in the fight against crime, adding that the crime problem will not be fixed overnight.

Player with Bahamian roots shines in Florida

When Mike Ferguson left The Bahamas 13 years ago, he didn't leave his connection behind.
The high school football sensation is very much indebted to The Bahamas which he still calls his homeland. As a matter of fact, he has the word 'Bahamas' tattooed on his left arm, and plays with the determination and desire of a kid from the islands every time he steps onto the field. Ferguson is a 19-year-old linebacker for the Cocoa High School Tigers, in Cocoa, Florida. He signed a commitment letter last month to play his collegiate football for the Florida Tech Panthers, in Melbourne.
"I'm very proud of my Bahamian background. I could never forget The Bahamas," said Ferguson yesterday. "That's where I came from so I could never forget it there. I know that it's tough for a young man from the islands to make it to the professional ranks in American football, but I feel that once I continue to work hard, the sky is the limit for me. I'm satisfied with the progress that I'm making, but I feel like I have to keep working hard to fully realize my potential."
Ferguson missed out on a unique opportunity to become just the third football player in the state of Florida to win four straight state titles, and at the same time, lead the Cocoa Tigers to an unprecedented fourth straight state title. The Tigers fell to the Booker T. Washington Tornadoes in the state semi-finals, losing by a touchdown in overtime.
"It sucked to go all the way to the game before state and fall short by a touchdown in overtime. It was real crushing, but it just points out that you can't win everything," said Ferguson. "This past year was probably my best season statistically, but in the end it still wasn't good enough because we lost. I wasn't really focussed on how I felt but to look around at my teammates as team captain, it was hard to watch them breaking down in tears because this was a lot of their first and last chance.
"A lot of them didn't get a chance to experience a state title, and that is what really hurt me more than anything else. I have three titles at home so I know what it feels like, but for a lot of them, this was their first and only chance. About half of the team was newcomers so they wanted to see what it felt like. I'm just disappointed that I couldn't lead them to that title to experience that feeling," he added.
As mentioned, Ferguson led the Tigers to three straight Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) state titles during his time there. The 6'0" 210-pound linebacker, who hails from Carmichael Road, right here in New Providence, will now take his talents to the Florida Institute of Technology (FIT). However, the Panthers don't play in their inaugural football season until the 2013 season.
"It's a great school academically and they have a great coaching staff in place, so I can't wait to get to work," said Ferguson. "I feel that I am at the ideal size right now - I'm just working on my foot speed and learning new techniques. I know that it's going to be a tough adjustment from high school to college but I'm prepared for the challenge. I'll be a redshirt freshman so I'll just be taking part in drills and running plays during practices. I guess we'll just be watching a lot of film and scrimmaging against other teams. I'm excited. I think that will work in our favor. No one knows what to expect from us, and with the people that we have recruited, I think that we are in for a very strong debut. I can't wait!"
Ferguson, who came home last summer, said that he would love to eventually make it to the National Football League (NFL) joining Bahamian greats such as the father and son tandem of Ed and Alex Smith, and Devard Darling.
"I guess only time will tell if I will be blessed enough to make it that far," said Ferguson. "Of course, it's something that you would want to shoot for, but at the same time, it's very difficult to make it to the NFL. I'm just going to go out there and continue working hard and let the chips fall where they may. Honestly, I'm just using football to get me where I need to go. It got me into college so that's already a plus."
No doubt, those are strong words coming from Ferguson. He left The Bahamas at age six with his mother Ellamae Lewis, and lives in Cocoa, Florida, with his mother and step father, Marlon Lewis.

Abducted mother forced to hand over 3,500

A MOTHER was abducted from her Paradise Island home yesterday morning by two teenagers who ordered her to drive them to a Carmichael Road bank, where she was forced to withdraw $3,500.

Police reports were sketchy last night, but it is understood that the mother, the wife of a businessman, had taken her two children to school early that morning. She returned to her Paradise Island condominium around noon only to find two young people -- the boy might have been about 18 and the girl about 15 - loitering near the property.

It is understood that someone walking in the area earlier that morning had seen the "children" hanging around and asked it they were looking for someone. No one paid too muc ...

Bethel: Advanced poll process should run smoothly

As officials prepare for tomorrow's advanced poll, which will take place across the country, Parliamentary Commissioner Errol Bethel said he expects the process to run smoothly.
"We don't expect to have any problems. I think everything will go as planned," he told The Nassau Guardian yesterday.

As previously reported, 7,865 people are registered to vote in the advanced poll including election workers, agents of political parties, Defence Force, Police Force and custom and immigration officers, overseas voters and special voters.
Voters will be able to vote between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m at two polling stations in New Providence, which will be located at the Bahamas Tourism Training Centre at The College of The Bahamas and the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.
Early voters in Bains Town and Grants Town, Englerston, Fox Hill, Marathon, Nassau Village, South Beach, MICAL, Centreville, Fort Charlotte, Golden Gates, Montagu, Pinewood and St. Anne's will vote at the gymnasium. Early voters in Bamboo Town, Elizabeth, Golden Isles, Mount Moriah, Southern Shores, Yamacraw, Carmichael, Garden Hills, Killarney, Sea Breeze, and Tall Pines will cast their ballots at the college.
As for the locations for the Family Islands poll, Bethel said that information will be published in the newspapers today or tomorrow.
The names of the approved registered early voters will also be printed, Bethel said.
There is some confusion about who has been approved for early voting, he explained.
"We are hoping to have a documentary aired about the procedure before election day so that people can understand the process," Bethel said.
In a statement released yesterday the Democratic National Alliance (DNA) claimed that the government has disenfranchised Family Island voters.
Mario Cartwright, DNA candidate for Long Island, said he only found out three working days before the advanced poll that Family Island residents would be allowed to participate in the early voting process.
He said it was originally announced that Family Island constituencies would not be allowed to do so.
The DNA charged that "the FNM government has secretly changed this position in what appears to be an attempt to disenfranchise voters from the non-governing parties."
However, Bethel explained that the Family Islands were only added to the list after the applications were reviewed.
"We don't normally include the Family Islands in the advanced polls. However, the amendments to the Parliamentary Elections Act allow Bahamians, including Family Island residents, to apply to vote in the early poll.
"So we had to make a determination after looking through all of the applications," Bethel added.
Less than 10,000 of the more than 118,000 registered voters in New Providence have yet to pick up their cards, Bethel said.
People can retrieve their cards up until the election day.
