On April 27, 2014, South Africa celebrated Freedom Day – marking 20 years of democracy. However, freedom appears to mean different things to different people.
To many in the public service, SA’s democratic dispensation signaled a sense of entitlement, which apparently, provides “rights” and “freedoms” to loot tax-payer money without conscience.
And while the nation celebrates 20 years of democracy – the rights, beliefs and religious liberties of Christians are being steadily diminished to guarantee homosexual activists unfettered freedoms.
The SA Government is committed to providing homosexuals special rights and privileges. Religious freedoms and “gay rights” cannot exist side-by-side amicably. Biblical Christianity will always be at odds with the sexual rights agenda. The conflicting worldviews are as distinct as light and darkness.
South Africa’s democracy is also a carefully choreographed facade. Public policy implemented by the ANC government over the past two decades is mostly influenced by the United Nations.
The majority of South Africans still disagree with abortion-on-demand, same-sex “marriage,” liberal attitudes to pornography in the media, the social denigration of women through the legitimisation of strip clubs, massage parlours etc… that are blatant fronts for prostitution and sex trafficking.
Both the ANC and DA hold extremely liberal positions on social policy issues that are sharply at odds with the conservative views of the overwhelming majority of South Africa citizens.
Government’s liberal approach to key social issues has significantly contributed to the alarming breakdown in marriages and families – which in turn accelerates the moral decline of society.
Sex crimes against women and children in SA are amongst the highest in the world. Government’s allegiance to the UN driven sexual rights agenda has undermined its fight against these crimes.
The Christian Church’s diminished influence in society has greatly emboldened anti-family groups to freely advance their evil agenda. The absence of moral and principled resistance has opened the floodgates to secular humanist moral ambivalence that has ravaged South African society.
On May 7, the South African electorate can change the course and destiny of this nation. You can vote for a political party that represents your fears or you can vote your Biblical convictions and values.
On Election Day, my wife and I will cast our vote for the African Christian Democratic Party. We vote ACDP, not because we need a stronger opposition or larger numbers in Parliament but because we desperately need a political party that faithfully upholds our Biblical values and convictions.
The ACDP is not perfect. No political party is. But they have proven – over the past 20 years – that they will not compromise Biblical values and principles at any level of government.
I vote ACDP because they are the only politicians prepared to help me ensure the Body of Christ is truthfully and accurately informed about legislation that is harmful and destructive to the family.
Significantly, however, my convictions and conscience will not allow me to vote for a political party that blatantly violates the sanctity of life and legitimises behaviours God has condemned as sin.
Mostly, I vote ACDP because we need men and women of godly conviction in Parliament who have the political FREEDOM to boldly represent the kingdom of God without fear or favour.
