Not unlike virtually every government in the world, the South African government has a law enshrined in its Constitution that commands ‘freedom of religion’ for the nation. This law also embraces the ‘separation between Church and State’ absurdity.
What this law really entails is that the government of the day disqualifies God (the real God) from any interference in the running of the affairs of State. In reality, this law also states that the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is not solely permitted in our midst and that every false religion under the sun is equal to what God represents through Jesus Christ – thus, this law prohibits the use of the name of Jesus in Parliament, the corridors of government and educational institutions so as not to offend the many false religions active in the country.
Now imagine that – a bunch of puny human beings, posing as politicians, actually believe that they have the power to toss out the Supreme Creator and Ruler of the Universe and prohibit Him from having any say in the business of them running the country.
Imagine further that they have actually made this law using the very Breath of Life within them – imparted by God – making it possible for them “to live and move and have their being”. In other words, without this God-given Breath of Life, they would not even be in existence and enabled to practice corruption by which they ransack the coffers of the nation as if the ‘separation of Church and State’ law actually blinds the God of the Universe.
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD; and the people whom he has chosen for his own inheritance. The LORD looks from heaven; he beholds all the sons of men. From the place of his habitation he looks upon all the inhabitants of the earth.’ (Ps 33:12-14)
What a God-disposing government is oblivious to is that they are actually subscribing to the dictates of the “god of this world” (Satan) who promotes and carries out his anti-Christ agenda through the willingness of their cooperation – because they are spiritually dead to God, but spiritually alive to Satan. This means they are dead while they live.
The fact these politicians are spiritually dead is further borne out by the dog-eat-dog antics of the governing party in their state-owned enterprises and municipalities where the greed for power and corrupt means to wealth are the main considerations at the expense of those who voted them in and the taxpayers of the country.
There are a few well-meaning political parties represented in Parliament, among them members of the African Christian Democratic Party (ACDP) who boldly declare their faith in social media platforms, but are meek followers of this God-disposing law and dare not let the name, Jesus, roll over their lips or declare, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD” in Parliament. So, it seems this “Christian” Party is merely a political party using the Christian reference as a hopeful means of making a difference. Perhaps they are, to a certain extent, but not in the true sense of the Christian faith.
“Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.” (Mt 10:32,33}
What our God-disposing government does not realise is that by their disrespect of God they are automatically given over to divine judgement for both their rejection of God in the affairs of government and for the consequences of their underhanded mode of governance under which the entire nation suffers such judgement.
“And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;” (Rom. 1:28)
If it were not for the existence of and prayers of the members of true Christian churches this country would have been in state of God-forsaken chaos. This applies to any country in the world. While the Church (Body of Christ) is on this earth there will be a restraint of evil in the world and it is this reality that governments should pay heed to, with the help of those who claim to be followers of Christ
Indeed, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD;”
