Have you heard that former South African President Nelson Mandela died? Have you heard that he was the “father” of South Africa…the model for millions worldwide, including the President of the United States?
Have you also heard that Nelson Mandela led the African National Congress in terrorist attacks, while armed with thousands of weapons supplied by Russia. Ever heard of the torture called “Necklacing?”
Nelson Mandela was a Communist…that should be enough said. All Communists deal in death and destruction. Mandela was no different. The 95 year old may have lately appeared to be a gentle soul…there are even rumors that he had become a “born-again” Christian. However, the fruit of his life’s work was not the end of Aparteid in South Africa. Instead it was the wholesale incitement of violence, poverty, hatred, covetousness, and pure evil, which always accompanies Communism!
As I watched coverage of the funeral of Nelson Mandela, one thing struck me. The world is easily swayed! A well documented terrorist is being lauded as an international icon and role model. We are overwhelmed with emotional instability, intellectually dishonesty, and spiritual emptiness…the perfect combination needed for a future evil leader to manipulate the world.
“Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed…”(2 Timothy 3:12-14)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it.
