WHEN THE PRIME MINISTER BREAKS THE LAW & PUNISHES NZ CHURCHES
14th May 2020
Destiny Churches have decided to STAND for all that represents our freedoms and rights as a democracy. In light of the passing of The Covid-19 Public Health Response Bill yesterday, we firmly stand our ground on what we see as a threat to all New Zealander’s personal freedoms and democratic rights.
Why on the weekend of two of the greatest events to ever happen in human history (the Crucifying of Christ and His Resurrection from the dead three days later) do over 80% of the New Zealand population typically head off to the Beach Bach (hopefully not this lockdown weekend though), to holiday destinations, or they engage in a whole lot of other pursuits?
I find the hypocrisy so loud I can’t hear what the police are saying! I understand their concern for the threats on the Muslims in Christchurch, and rightly so, but the way the Liberal Left Government, in particular Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, act is bizarre to say the least.
New Zealand is presently faced with the worst poverty statistics we have ever experienced. It is estimated that 682,500 are presently living in poverty in this country. That equates to one in seven households. Take a look right now at your own street…could every seventh house actually be in poverty behind those closed doors? To make matters worse, one in every four kids now live in poverty. That is a quarter of our upcoming generation, in poverty – that does not bode well for us as a nation.
ELABORATE PLAN BY DESTINY CHURCH TO ELIMINATE POVERTY

This an insightful warning that on our doorstep Islam in Australia is pushing Government for Sharia Law to be enacted. Imam Tahidi has said in Australia that Muslims and the Liberal Left want to open the Immigration borders and populate Australia with Islam. - Watch this video!
A NATION’S SEXUAL LUST ERECTS ALTAR OF BABY-SACRIFICES
11th July 2019
While the hui for a Māori-led inquiry into Oranga Tamariki by prominent academics is to be welcomed, it is misguided to say that only the Crown stands in the way of tino rangatiratanga (selfdetermination)
when in fact it is ourselves (Māori) who have failed our children.
TAMPERING WITH ONE'S NATIONAL IDENTITY OPENS DEADLY DOORS
19th May 2020
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 “For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.”
I believe after Sunday’s successful service at Destiny Church, it proves that churches have been unfairly treated by the Minister of Health, David Clark and Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern.
I am writing this article today in protest to the Level 2 restrictions on churches in New Zealand. A church can act as responsibly as a cinema when it comes to health precautions and physical distancing.
Our rights as churches under The New Zealand Bill of Rights are being violated, particularly section 15 regarding the freedom to manifest religion or belief in worship, observance practise and teaching either publicly or privately. In the Bill of Rights the Government must act fairly when making decisions about religious groups and it isn’t doing so in allowing businesses to have more than 10 people on their premises but not churches.
The Covid-19 pandemic threat over the planet has been truly frightening to many. Most nations are now realizing that a virus spreading rapidly through their people is a deadly killer if not contained. It has already shut down world economies, put multiple millions of people in cities and towns into total Lockdown with confinement to their homes. How dangerous is this virus, how long will it last, and what’s next? Job losses, business shutdowns, Marshall Law with Police and Military, collapsed economies…and the biggest of them all…fear and uncertainty!
The drama continues – here we have the Serious Fraud Office investigating our major Political Parties and Politicians who are accused of using deceptive, dishonest strategies to funnel money into their party coffers.
What gets me about all this is that we, as a nation, are becoming indifferent and accepting of these practices. How you may ask? By continuing to support these dishonest parties and power-hungry politicians.
ISLAM IS A CREEPING DANGER ON THE KIWI WAY OF LIFE
11th September 2019
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and the Labour Party leadership can no longer pretend that sexual harassment, bullying, indecent assault and rape allegations in their ranks is even remotely acceptable or someone else’s problem – you can never heal what you hide!
The Christchurch mass murderer's letters getting out into the public domain are a cause for concern, but even more sinister is the influence this killer will continue to exert on society for the next 30, 40 or 50 years and makes a strong case for re-introducing the death penalty for mass murders who are unrepentant and who continue to be a danger to the public.
It was Dr Martin Luther King Jr who said: “One has a moral responsibility to disobey unjust laws.”
It’s been surprising the number of Christians that have thrown up Romans 13:1 in criticizing Destiny Church’s ‘Stand for our Freedoms and Rights’ service this Sunday at our church premises. Interesting that many of the unbelieving crowd of haters have also joined the religious blind in quoting that same Romans 13:1 passage of scripture, a scary alliance in my opinion.
So do the church or believers have such a freedom or role in confronting the State or Government of its day? Or as some are saying, it’s none of our business, trust God and keep praying?
IS IT RIGHT TO STAND UP FOR OUR FREEDOMS & RIGHTS?
ANZAC Day - 25th April 2020
This weekend we celebrate ANZAC day, a moment in our history where World Wars stole away a generation of our young Kiwi Soldiers, either by death or permanent psychological and emotional damage. Many were barely into their twenties.
This morning, many commentators including TV Presenter, Duncan Garner, and political MPs, Willie Jackson and Judith Collins, made political blunders, not understanding the severity of the sell off of New Zealand’s resources to foreign interests. These blunders came about while trying to get their heads around Bishop Tamaki’s latest ‘State of Māori Nation’ message. Really, they need to start first by listening to the full message to understand the full context.
Destiny Church welcomes The High Court in Wellington’s decision that the church’s charities be reinstated and, significantly, that the status is backdated to when the original, politically motivated de-registration was carried out by the Department of Internal Affairs.
DESTINY WELCOMES HIGH COURT DECISION, CALLS FOR MEDIA REGULATION
24th September 2019
Media bias is alive and well in New Zealand as websites like The Spinoff and the New Zealand Herald prove themselves totally untrustworthy, as a recent article from so-called journalist Alex Braae – and an unnamed writer for the NZHerald – clearly demonstrates.
THE SPIN OFF USES FLAWED CENSUS DATA TO SUPPORT LEFT-WING AGENDA
10th September 2019
It was the worst news I could have received on a fine afternoon. Just finishing my morning duties, I was feeling like life couldn't be better… until a phone call came about an incident involving my long-time childhood cousin Fred. He had committed suicide! He had taken his sports car out on the road in a rage of the moment and purposefully smashed it into a cattle truck with an explosion of fire and debris all over the road. He did the unthinkable! He took his own life in the most horrific way.
FIGHTING THE INNER DEMON OF DEPRESSION AND SUICIDE
9th August 2019
Today on World Indigenous Peoples Day should be a day to reflect on the inequalities that have given rise to the occupation at Ihumātao, and similar occupations around the globe, including Mauna Kea in Hawaii. This moment in time presents an opportunity to finally bring deep healing to generational hurts that have plagued our indigenous peoples for decades.
