An open letter to Pastor Steve Philips
Published on February 17, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

Dear Pastor Steve Philips,

Please accept my greetings in the name of our lord and savior Jesus the crucified Christ and in the name of his awesome father, the all powerful, Almighty God: Yahweh. It is with a heavy heart that I take this opportunity to write this open letter to you, in which I will outline my concerns for your reputation as an honest man, as a pastor, as well as for your soul’s eternal salvation. I do so after the dreadful fall of your country-man, religious brother and ordained ministerial colleague: Mr. Edison Augustus.

Although I do not yet understand the call that Yahweh have placed on my life, I can feel his presence all around me; each day I see how he directs my thoughts; as well as, the insights I am given. It is indeed amazing and I am extremely thankful, for the blessings of a closer relationship with Yahweh and his moving in my life.

Pastor Philips, for many years you have been my pastor; as a result, you are the first of two Seventh day Adventist pastors, I have ever connected with. Under your ministry and teaching, I was exposed to and I learned many spiritual truths; truths which I have applied to my life, the same truths that was instrumental in facilitated my spiritual growth. It is base on the relationship we once had and my obedience to the call of the Almighty God Yahweh that I publicly write to you.

On 8th June, 2013 I wrote a piece in Caribbean News Now in which was embedded a public call to you, Pastors Joyles and Pastor Augustus. That piece was titled “Honor among thieves.” In the third bullet point of that piece, I extend a call to you, Joyles and Augustus. It was my hope that you all recognize the error of your ways, Terminate your relationship with Ralph E Gonsalves: Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines get back on the straight and narrow return to and live up to the standard you once represented and re-answer the call Yahweh placed on your life.

Your continued relationship with Ralph Gonsalves is evidence that you and Edison Augustus have ignored my admonition and have chosen to fly in the face of the one true Almighty King and God: Yahweh. King David in Psalm 84:10 said: “I rather be a doorkeeper in the house of the lord than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.” You may not understand it, but for several years you have been dwelling in the tent of the wicked; I interprets your continued actions as a public declaration as a vote of no confidence in Yahweh’s ability and willingness to provide for all of your needs. Even the blind can see and children have acknowledges that Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves is a wicked man; the evidence of this is there and the evidence is clear.

I am also sure that you are aware that PM Ralph E Gonsalves is also alleged to be actively participating in Witch Craft. Apart from the allegations of Ralph E. Gonsalves Obeah dealings, I have had a spiritual revelation that confirmed the allegations that Ralph Evert Gonsalves is deeply involvement in the craft of Obeah.

So I say to you in the words of 2 Corinthians 6: 14 - 16 “Don’t be unequally joined together with unbelievers, for what fellowship has righteousness with unrighteousness? And what relationship has light with darkness? What concord has Christ with belial? Or what part has he who believes in Yahweh with one who serves the devil?

I hope you have seen the destructive nature of Ralph E. Gonsalves in the voluntary fall of Ex-Pastor Edison Augustus. Although Edison may not yet blaspheme against the Holy Spirit, which is the unpardonable sin; at this stage of his life, he cannot be effective in the call to ministry.

Augustus’ actions were instrumental in betrayal of his God. He have also betrayed his call to ministry, his country, his conscience, his family; the saints of God everywhere and the law abiding people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. You may think I am being hard on MR. Augustus, but if the truth is being spoken without fear and it appears insensitive it is because I am speaking this undiluted, uncompromised truth to save you from a similar fate as your ministerial colleague.

The truth be told, at this stage, Augustus’ actions have made him unemployable, and if he is ever given a sympathy job, he will never again be trusted. No more will he be respected by his family, friends and or acquaintances. Even worst and more damaging than anything I have spoke about is the level of embarrassment, shame and hurt his actions have brought to and upon his parents, siblings, estrange wife but more so his children. I will also say this, although Edison Augustus’ instructions in the post of St. Vincent and the Grenadines Deputy Counselor General to the United States of America have caused me many distress and expense, I still love him for to do otherwise would be to go against the teaching of the almighty God Yahweh as was taught by Jesus the Christ in Matthew 5: 44.

This embarrassing drama could have been avoided if Edison Augustus followed my advice and terminated his relationship with Ralph E Gonsalves: Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. This is such an important matter that I cannot afford to take any chances, so if appealing to your Christian values will not be enough to persuade you to abandon your association with Ralph Gonsalves, let me bring you evidence of the destructive nature of Ralph Gonsalves and some of the lives this demon possessed man have ruined.

Apart from destroying the country’s economy, the moral fiber of the society and have caused embarrassment to his wife and family, he has destroyed Michelle Andrews and Margret Parsons life forever; he has eternally scars them and penetrated their souls, he has ruined brilliant and ambitious sons of the soil in the persons of:

Collin Williams: Gonsalves have cause irreparable damage Colin’s credibility as a lawyer as a man and as a human. Gonsalves has selfishly dashed this young man’s integrity against the proverbial wall of unconscionable behavior. With Colin Williams’ new reputation, he could never work with any reputable law firm or institution outside of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Colin Williams have perpetrated the biggest travesty to justice that was ever recorded in the history of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Gonsalves motivated him to betray his training, the innocent and justice.

Conrad Sayers: Mr. Sayers was once loyal minister of religion and ex-president of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Gospel Music Association of which I was a member. Mr. Sayers became a politician at Gonsalves bidding and that was the beginning of the end of Pastor Sayers’ ministry, family life, and reputation. For slowly Conrad Sayers fell deeper and deeper in secret rebellion which later manifested itself into open rebellion against his God; his reward he lost all that was important to him.

Hendrickson Alexander: a once reputable man and father, who today is reduced to a fragment of his former self. Hendrickson Alexander is another of Gonsalves’ hideous creation, for Ralph Gonsalves took this intelligent man and transformed this respectable father into a puppet, an idiot; a man who professional actions have brought his family public and private shame and in the process have desecrated the office of the speaker of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines House of Parliament.

Luke Brown: a brilliant young man loaded with potential; who put his trust in P.M Gonsalves and in his efforts to please his role-model, stepped outside his Christian principles, only to butt heads with the law. Luke was hauled before the court with criminal charges laid against him for alleged infringement against the elections laws; charges which are still pending.

Glen Jackson: a loyal supporter, election campaign strategist and press secretary to Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves; Glen Jackson extended himself in more ways than we care to know about for the personal and other use of Ralph Gonsalves, yet his reward: he was brutally murdered, and in his death his homosexual secrets were reveled in court testimonies. He not only lost his life but he lost of his dignity and self-respect. It is no secret who was responsible for Glen Jackson’s death, although it has not proven it is widely alleged.

Fitz Jones: was a Vincentian community activist, who molded young minds; one who sat as the president of the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Teachers Union; a leader in the struggle for the rights of his colleague. However his negotiated encounter with Ralph Gonsalves, slowly transformed him into a dealer in blood. For Fitz Jones did not hesitated when he betrayed the trust that was placed in him for personal gain; this father have set the example for his children, always remember the apple don’t fall to far from the tree.

Fitz Huggins: Huggins a man who is entrusted with the diplomatic affairs of the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines representing our country in the Canadian mission; however, his behavior mirrors a party loyalist who performs menial task in the ULP headquarters. Mr. Huggins used his diplomatic office as Counselor General to Canada to sabotage the relief effort geared to help the suffering people within his own country, some of the people who are suffering are members of his own family. Where is the diplomacy? Why would a diplomatic be worried about scoring cheap political points for a party?

Howie Prince: A man who has always been cool and unassuming, whose only transgression was the fact that he looks like me. But that was until he was overcome by the manipulative control of PM Gonsalves. Today in a disaster, Mr. Prince who holds the post of St. Vincent and the Grenadines National Disaster Coordinator has trashed all of his values in an effort to score cheap political points for the prime minister and his party, while the people suffer. A part from the agony of losing their lives possessions, Mr. Prince’s actions have actively contributed to strip the poor and the suffering of what little pride and dignity they have left.

And we have the recent experience of Edison Augustus! All I will say in this case is, didn’t Augustus know that there are consequences for betraying our God; Deut. 28: 37.

Pastor Philips you have taught me about faith in Jesus, I am now admonishing you to step out in faith, knowing like the three Hebrew boys, Yahweh is going to take care of you and your family. It is time that you recognize the error of your ways, Terminate your relationship with Ralph E Gonsalves: Prime Minister of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, get back on the straight and narrow, began to live up to the standard you once represented and re-answer the call Yahweh have placed on your life.

I want to join Mr Palmer in support of his open letter to Mr Phillips it is profound intrest that we as member of the Great movement God has call us to be part off,GOD is keeping his great eyes on us in Svg.

Peter Binose:

What an amazing writing Allen. But your list is only a small part of a list of people destroyed by this man, a man who I have described before as a disciple of Satan. Breeder of hate malice and spite and indecency in people who fall into the abyss of hell at his calling.

A Marxist pretender as a man of Christ, yet with his own mouth he told us “if I work Obeah, I only work Obeah for the Lord” seeing as you cannot work Obeah for God, I ask is he referring to the Lord of Darkness, Satan.
