THE recent revelations that Air Pacific has drawn substantial resources from our superannuation fund which the FNPF approved without consideration to what it would do to reduce members’ entitlements. This must be reviewed immediately.

Our creator demands honesty in our work as he wants honesty in the workplace; your business is his business. God doesn’t bless dishonesty. The Bible says: “The Lord demands fairness in every business deal.” (Proverbs 16:11) That includes wages, sales, taxes and other business dealings. If Air Pacific and FNPF want God’s blessings, they have to be honest. You can’t rip people off. Profit made dishonestly always brings trouble. “The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” (Proverbs 10:22)

Many global organisations have made enormous profits but it eventually only brought them trouble. It was the main cause of the global financial meltdown. Many of these companies are based in the US and their culture is about making a quick buck without a thought for the consequences of their actions.

We will always reap what we sow You cannot mock God and get away with it. The FNPF Board members and executives should be honest with our finances. “It is the Lord’s blessing that makes you wealthy.” (Proverbs 10:22) That includes both organisations negotiating without members’ consent. Anything done without following God’s laws will definitely fail.
