Williams says he was called by God to serve

The Democratic Labour Party (DLP’s) new City candidate Henderson Williams says he has been called by God to serve.

“I stand here highly aware of the fact that there is no higher calling than to serve people, party and country. I am even more highly aware that God has been calling me to serve my people,” Williams told a full house of party supporters at the Wesley Hall Junior School on Saturday.

The DLP hierarchy recently dropped City candidate Patrick Todd for Williams.

At yesterday’s induction ceremony, Williams sought to put to rest concerns that he was an outsider.

“There was massive conversation on social media about ‘this man is saying he lives in Chapman Lane but I don’t know him’. The whisper campaigns have begun and that is part of it [public life],” he said, detailing how he spent his early years as a student of the Wesley Hall Junior School and resided in numerous parts of Bridgetown before settling at his current residence in Bayland.

Williams told party supporters that he will work to earn their trust and strive to revitalize Bridgetown.

“The revitalization of Bridgetown is of paramount importance to the team in The City and certainly to the Government of Barbados, the DLP Government,” he said.

“I am more optimistic that we can achieve together a strong economy and a stable society. We will create together in The City, a situation where people will rise based on their talents.”

He also thanked his predecessor, who in turn pledged to lead Williams towards the House of Assembly in the 2018 general elections.

“The country has limited resources so do not put undue pressure on your candidate, your party, your government to work miracles,” Todd urged supporters.

He acknowledged that The City has been a marginal seat for the DLP over the years but he said the constituency hosts a strong core of loyalists. (KK)

      @Debbie Jones – Agreed, but OBEDIENCE is the key. Read Deut 31:29. And Deut 28: 15-68.

        Pattern recognition –

        O LAMB of god I look to thee to look upon your precious SHEEP. (For deciphering sake and to ease density a SHEEP has WOOLLY (genetically course) HAIR 🙂

        “I am even more highly aware that God has been calling me to serve my people,” –
        Oh really, but then again “god” could be working with you on the negative, seeing that he has put this people in this current situation of servitude for disobedience. God is working well with you people to keep the eagles and vultures eating/using this people. And believe you me you will SERVE a people, but not your own. Eating those white wafers and drinking the wine from that big gold chalice.

        Wrong Patten.

    Now how am I supposed to trust a man who claims he was directly called upon by an entity still to be unproven, to serve in that tricky game of politics…I shall, for now, label him a liar who is playing on the religious majority’s ability to be easily swayed by such words. May he go forth and prove me wrong !

    This is a non starter , a wasted vote he was called by god , he doesn’t feel capable to come for himself and say I want to represent my people because I can do it..see he will make a brilliant politician , controversial already and nothing will get done by him unless god say so, just right for present lot…………………

    • Jennifer April 23, 2017 at 9:56 am

      @jrsmith – You so funny, I bet the god who sent him is that white, blue eyed, goat hair god that this people was given by Massa. He should look up Cesar Borgia or the Borgia family.

    Blasphemous. If he is called by God to serve, let him become a minister and spread ‘the word’. Last time I looked, God was not in the business of calling people to become politicians. Ministers perhaps, politicians? Bullcrap.

  17. Saga Boy April 23, 2017 at 10:40 am

    It’s interesting how one and take one sentence and make a generalization and judgement. That was not the only thing he said. For person to imply that this man is a liar and unfair etc without providing the evidence is itself ungodly. Perhaps DebbieJones can tell us what evidence her God showed her that would indicate that the candidate is a lier. And while she is at it tell us who on the BLP side has been called by God. He heads up COB which is a mass based credit union with members who live in the city. I am sure many of them must have benefited including businessmen over the years. I also understand that He has been involved in assisting persons in the city and they are greateful. This behavior is typical Bajan. You present the negatives without Knowing or being interested in the facts.

    Be very very careful when saying…God say or God send because he will not stand idly by and let any man lie on him.
    Always question the voice you hear because most of the time the first voice we hear is that of the one who wants us to satisfy our selfish fleshly desires. The devil himself.
    Be very careful for no man can mock God.

    This DLP candidate Henderson Williams, reminds of UK’s PM Theresa May, who said the reason she called a snap general election on June 8th, 2917, was because God told her to do so. Hence it seems these two politicians have something in common that is using their religious beliefs to sway voters to vote for them.

    I can see that some of you heretics seem to love making a mockery of any mention of God. The same God to whom some of you recklessly refer has said that he sets up kings and he takes them down, case in point the book of Samuel.

    Dennis Low Low does serve God to you. So does Prime Minister Freundel Stuart. Wait, the Doctor pastor Durant is also called by God and he was suppose to raise David Thompson from the dead. Oops sorry, cure he from he illness. The truth is David Thompson is not really dead just waiting to be resurrected by Durant who waiting to get the power to do so.

  42. Mikey April 23, 2017 at 4:30 pm

    @Jennifer, I did a little bit of English and European History, read about Cesare Borgia and the Borgia family, but help me connect the dots that joins Williams to Cesare Borgia ?
    Is he an illegimate son of a Pope ? Does he have an STD ?
    was he imprisoned ? Will he die from a wound caused by a spear ?
    And Cesare Borgia died at the relatively young age of 32 years.

    It always amazes me at how so called “believers” are quick to point out how unworthy other believers are when speaking about their deity! Now who are you to determine if sky daddy spoke to him or not? Is their a monopoly on sky daddyisms now? As for politics and believers in sky daddies, they’ve been 2 sides of the same coin for as long as recorded history shows! So essentially, hush! If the man say sky daddy told him to run, as so called “christians” wunna should be encouraging it, cause he’s a believer like wunna! But by all means continue with the comedy relief, wunna and wunna sky daddy non sense is amusing!

    How many Gods are there? My sister was approached regarding donating a kidney to a brother, she said she has to ask god.
    Now, this sister owns a church, lives in a house that is part of the church and two years later hasn’t heard back from god. I was under the impression that since her cousin Joseph Niles passed he must have taken the royal telephone with him, now my sister is not computer savvy so I assumed she’s only capable of using the phone as her only means to communicate with her god. If anyone out there should bump into this gentlemen claiming to have a line to god, ask him on my sister’s behalf what source he used to communicate…facebook, whatsapp, instagram or email address if he still has it.
    I know he’s gonna do like most bajan, I had um, but I in know wheh i put um now. Man it gotta be bout heh sum wheh. Still ask he fuh she.

    I have change my mind I am agreeing with Williams , because nothing will change, years from now people would be moaning the same, people are frighten to change anything the suffering will continue , the politicians will become more corrupt and the 1% will own more of Barbados……………………………………
    You cannot change anything political , unless you are willing to change your voting ways and behaviour taking back control from the politicians……………………………………………………………
