Greetings in the precious Name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Thank you for your letter and question.
Yes, I am sure that some people would be offended by the things that I say concerning the ANC. Perhaps you have not appreciated the fact that our country that has been hijacked, invaded, looted and exploited by these ruthless Marxist revolutionaries.
The ANC legalised abortion, pornography, prostitution and perversion - against the express will of the vast majority of the population. Nelson Mandela inherited the super power of Africa and wrecked it. Our currency was once stronger than the US Dollar and the British Pound. After decades of sanctions, terrorism and war, the Rand was down to about 2 to the Dollar when Mandela was made president of the country.
Then, without a war, during peace time, without conscription, without riots, stay-a-ways and sanctions, and with vast amounts of foreign aid, Mandela managed to implode the currency to the point where the Rand was 14 to the Dollar before he retired.
Aside from legalising abortion and pornography, Mandela immediately closed our Nurses Training colleges, Teacher Training colleges, chased out many of the hugely competent nurses, teachers and civil servants that had made our country the best run in the continent. Then through Black Economic Empowerment and Affirmative Action created an attitude of entitlement in people who have looted the treasury and made this country one of the most corrupt in the world.
I was brought up in a country that did not need locks and burglar bars. Today, high walls, razor wire, electric fences, security gates and armed response companies are not enough to keep our people safe. Not satisfied with stealing and looting the resources of this country, but the ANC have paganised the population, brainwashed and indoctrinated the children in schools, filling their heads with lies about evolution and slandering their parents and grandparents.
Understanding the world war of worldviews, in the spiritual warfare that we are involved in, one can only feel sorry for those deluded people who believe the lies of these professional thieves. One also must question the intelligence, or integrity, of Christians who support such evil as the ANC.
If what I have said sounds too harsh to you, then please forgive me. I was brought up in war, I have seen a lot of people murdered by such Marxists. I walked knee deep through corpses in churches in Rwanda. I have been imprisoned and tortured by communists in Mozambique and Zambia. Bombed in Sudan and accumulated more death threats than my filing cabinet can accommodate.
I was mentored by Francis Grim, missionary pioneer, who taught me not to fear man, but God alone.
I do love my enemies. I have spent most of my life seeking to bring the Gospel to them. By God's grace I can count many ex-communists as friends and brothers in Christ.
May God continue to be your joy and strength.
Yours for the fulfilment of the Great Commission
