Church has eyes, no ears

Dear Editor

RE: Church commitments are the cause of poverty - Afoa Aliva

Congratulations to Mr. Afoa Aliva for having the guts to publicly state what everyone knows but is afraid to say. It seems that church officials have eyes but cannot see the sufferings of their members and ears that cannot hear the pleas for relief of their sufferings.

These church officials have built altars of worship that have become a burden to their members rather than a sanctuary to where they can go to pray for guidance and hope for a better tomorrow for their families and loved ones.

Not all church officials are blind and deaf to the sufferings of their members, but I don’t see anyone (official church spokesperson) really coming to the forefront to address the issues brought forth by Mr. Aliva.
