Re: Development, Christianity and Samoa
The harm that is done to Samoans (which can be found if we analyze and think deeply on what is going on in the land of Samoa) is done by the “smart” Samoans using a mixture of palagi systems (Church/Government/Samoa’s own Money) and samoan systems (Matai and village life.)
What is even worse is the “stupid” Samoans allowing themselves to be fooled by the “smart” Samoans because they are only using their senses (eyes to see and ears to hear.) and have fear in their heart.
Yes the harm that is done in Samoa is not from foreigners (palagis) but the Samoa’s own people (leaders) doing it to their own kind (those allowing themselves to be fooled).
The solution to all the problems in Samoa is simple - don’t allow yourselves to be fooled - don’t belittle yourself - you are the Sons and Daughters of God.
Use the mind that God gave you and don’t be afraid to speak your mind - Christ will help you - He has promised you.
Samoans embraced Christianity because of the man Jesus Christ and his teachings which touched something deep within each persons heart.
True Christians believe in the Christ and Jesus who attained the highest spiritual title (He gained this title by his own blood) (The Christ title is higher than all the matai titles and names - these titles are gained by material goods/money.)
True Christians are thankful because Jesus Christ sacrificed himself on the Cross for everyone of us. And that is why we still celebrate Christmas in Samoa. It is time to spiritually wake up and mentally wake up. Merry Christmas to all in Samoa!
