Lack of faith highlighted


FOUNDER and director of Faith Sold Out Ministries International (FSOMI) Joshua Tiamon says the younger generation of Papua New Guineans lack faith in God.
Tiamon said today’s youth could be brought back into the fold through “works by love for God, guided by the word of God”.
He said FSOMI was a new faith-based ministry that aimed to reach out to embrace the misguided, confused, troubled, neglected and orphaned youth and empower, rehabilitate and mobilise them for the service of their communities and God.
Tiamon said communities in the country were focused on seven key areas – business, education, economy, politics, religion and sports and entertainment – and the ministry aimed to be a stakeholder and development partner with local authorities to help create a balanced society for the people.
“As a stakeholder in community development, it is our duty to help people in our communities to build their level of faith in God and not just physical infrastructures so that we can lead balanced lives socially, economically and spiritually,” he said.
Tiamon said influencing the youth and families was key to having a peaceful, success and happy society.
“We really need this country to be a nation modeled on faith and Christian principles,” he said.
“That is why it is important to incorporate the message into everything we do.”
Tiamon reflected his experience in his Christian faith that had allowed him to do things he thought would not have been possible.
He said the ministry was looking to apply to be incorporated as a church organisation in the Investment Promotion Authority.
