NELSON MANDELA IS OUR HERO AND EXAMPLE OF CHRISTIAN GRACE AND FORGIVENESS.WHY DO YOU SPEAK CRITICALLY OF OUR FATHER OF DEMOCRACY IN SOUTH AFRICA?IT MAKES ME SAD.OK, SO HE BOMBED A FEW BUILDINGS AT NIGHT BUT HE WAS FOR FEEDOM.
You need to remember, that God is Truth. God's Word is Truth. Jesus Christ is the Way the Truth and the Life, no one come to the Father expect through Him. The Scriptures are clear that satan is deceiving the whole world (Revelation 12:7; 20:1-3).
Satan is deceiving the nations. Indoctrination teaches you what to think. Education teaches you how to think. The ability to think critically is essential, but it is increasingly difficult. We are being subjected to the greatest flood of misinformation and disinformation in the history of mankind.
Misinformation is error, either as a result of sincere mistakes, or typographical errors. Frequently, trusting an unreliable resources results in misunderstanding the facts of a matter. Disinformation is the intentional distortion of events or issues. While misinformation is unintentional. Disinformation is intentional.
For example, Communist governments establish Departments of Disinformation to manufacture deceit and to confuse issues.
Under the Duties Required in the Ninth Commandment, the Westminster Larger Catechism lists: The duty of preserving and promoting truth. The duty to stand for the truth and to do so from the heart. The duty to speak the truth and only the truth, in matters of judgment and justice. The duty to speak the truth at all times.
Under the Sins Forbidden in the Ninth Commandment, the Westminster Standards includes: The sin of giving false evidence. The sin of lying. The sin of concealing the truth. The sin of misconstruing intentions. The sin of exaggerating minor faults, and the sin of perverting the truth to a wrong meaning.
The Scriptures teach us that satan is deceiving the nations. If you find yourself in agreement with the United Nations and Hollywood, then you need to stop and carefully consider whether you have been deceived.
As George Orwell wrote: "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act."
Have you read George Orwell’s 1984 Newspeak today?
Please see the attached Battle for the Mind in the News Media, How Propaganda Changes Perceptions and People and Dealing with Deceit.
You also need to read: Mandela Day and the Making of a New Religion, Making Idols of Modern Men and Myths, and my review of the Mandela – Long Walk to Freedom film.
I have served persecuted churches throughout Africa for over 32 years. There are genuine Christians who have suffered for Christ, unspeakable cruelties, throughout North Africa. You need to know the names and the testimonies of the believers in Northern Nigeria, South Sudan, the Nuba Mountains, Egypt, Zimbabwe, and the Congo and understand what they went through and why they stood firm for Christ in the midst of tribulation.
You also need to be concerned for the victims of ANC terrorism and the Abortion Holocaust unleased in this country by Nelson Mandela’s legalising it, against all opposition, 1 February 1997. Do you not care about the 1, 2 million innocent babies killed in South Africa, legally, officially, with tax payers’ money since then?
I understand that you are influenced by what the world has taught you in government schools, through the world’s media and that this misinformation and disinformation has affected the way you perceive things. It is vital that you are not conformed to this world, but transformed by the renewing of your mind through the washing of the Word of God.
Nelson Mandela swore in court, and in his books, that he was not a communist. It has now been revealed to the world by his family and party, that he always was a senior member of the Politburo of the South African Communist Party. Does it not bother you that this man, idolised by so many, was guilty of perjury for over 50 years?
Does the armed struggle of the ANC, which Nelson Mandela personally unleased, concern you?
The ANC did more than bomb a few buildings at night. People were burned alive, over 1,000 were necklaced by the brutal and slow, torturous necklace method. Far more Black people were murdered by the ANC, than by the National Party government during this horrible three decades of war.
I do not know how old you are, or how much you have travelled and seen personally, but I am 54 years old and I have ministered in 34 countries of the world. I lived through this. I have ministered in these areas. There are few parts of this country that I have not travelled to and it is very clear to me who the victims are and who the villains are.
Do not join the mob in choosing Barabbas.
May God lead you into all Truth.
Yours for the fulfilment of the Great Commission
