(Eleuthera, Bahamas) A Family Island pastor known for his work with youth and men’s ministries is not sitting quiet when it comes to giving his view on the national gambling referendum. Gospel music promoter and pastor, Jamie ‘DJ Crunktified’ Isaacs is condemning clergymen and churches who are in support of making gambling legal to Bahamian citizens.
“The Bahamas is one of the few nations left on planet earth that’s still holding on to it Christian beliefs and Godly principles,” said Isaacs during a recent address. “The reason the Bahamas is still considered a Christian nation is because of its Constitution that is built on Christian and Godly principles.”
“You must understand that our Constitution serves as a covenant between us as a nation and God,” he added. “We have certain privileges under our covenant that God will honor as long as we’re in covenant. Why do you think we survive some of the worst hurricanes that cause so much destruction to the U.S and other countries, with less strength than when they hit the Bahamas? Why do you think we survived one of the worst economic recessions in history without laying off public servants like nations much greater than us? One word – covenant. We are under God’s hedge of protection and Satan can’t do anything with us.”
Isaacs referenced the Bible where he stated that Ephesians 6:12 “gives a clear description” that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. He said that it is clear that the source behind dividing the country and even churches is Satan, and that the pastors who support it are not promoting Godly righteousness. The covenant, he says, is the Constitution.
“The Prime Minister and his government, with the stroke of a pen, can legalize and regulate numbers today if they wished,” declared Isaacs. “That would defeat Satan’s ultimate purpose which is to get us as a nation to break covenant and the only way to do that is to amend the Constitution. The only way to amend the Constitution is through a referendum. Once that is done, we would have given Satan full access to steal, kill and destroy. If this is what you want then by all means vote yes!”
