Rev. Opapo is confused

Dear Editor,

Re: Paramount chief Misa stands by Opapo

Reverend Opapo spent four years at Malua and many more as a church minister but he does not seem to understand the difference between an image and a statue. 

A statue is an idol. And idolatry is the sin that Yaweh hates the most. That’s why the E.F.K.S. normally have an empty cross in their churches and no statues. 

It’s to remind us that Jesus did not stay pinned on the cross but had risen to glory so that we can be forgiven. No wonder the people of Falelatai are confused due to mixed messages of the Bible been given to them.
