“Mandela believed in God, was not a Christian” per his confidante. Surprisingly, admirably Mandela forgave his jailer. So did Corrie Ten Boom, a Christian whose sister died in prison. They were incarcerated for hiding and saving Jews from the Nazis.
Atheists et al don’t understand the Holy Spirit. He indwells born again Christians. He sheds abroad the love of God in their hearts He gives them a love for the souls of men, women, boys, and girls not willing that any should perish because of Jesus Christ’s sacrifice.
Christians, beware! Your demonization as haters, bigots, homophobes is accelerating! Fear not. God does not give His children the spirit of fear but of power, love and a sound mine!(II Timothy 1:7) In sync with God we speak Biblical truth like Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson with malice towards none!
Mandela and Paul Crouch, TBN founder, died about the same time. God used Mandela to deal with Apartheid. God used Crouch to saturate the world with satellites proclaiming the Gospel and Christ’s coming again, a happening of eternal value, America’s only hope!
The media eulogized Mandela for weeks, never mentioning Crouch’s death. The internet carried vitriolic anti-Christian comments about evangelists. Shame on them.
It cannot be said of real Christians that “no man careth for my soul”(Psalm 142:4).
FYI we believe a bigot is one who “Believes in God’s Only Truth,” Hallelujah!
By the way, liberal Supreme Court Justice Kennedy deserves impeachment for his DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) view. So should others in the D.C. Administration be impeached!
God bless us all as only He can.
