WHEN James Marape became prime minister, he said to make Papua New Guinea become ‘a rich black Christian nation’ once corruption and its many evils are addressed.
Corruption is endemic and systematic in this country and it will take years to come out of such entrenchments even with our best efforts.
PNG cannot be taken back from the dogs through mere human ideas, ways and means.
That would in the end amount to nothing.
This fight is not against flesh and blood, it is against rulers, authorities, and powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
The supreme weapon we use is God’s Word and the sword of the spirit that has power to demolish every stronghold of the devil.
Nothing can stand against God’s word, for it will not return without accomplishing the purpose it was meant to serve.
This means as a Christian nation, it is imperative that all the decisions, all the laws made, and every policy engaged by our leaders is fundamentally in line with God’s word.
Only then can we see tangible and significant change in our pursuit to take back PNG.
If God be for us who can be against us?
