GE2009

Politically speaking, the year 2009 is not so far away!

However, in real terms, the way people live from day to day, here at the start of 2007, 2009 can seem a lifetime away! That is the problem!

Before the political parties can say "Crusoe Robinson," the General Elections of 2009 (GE2009) will be here!

The time between now and GE2009 should be used in educating Christians all over South Africa, so that when GE2009 comes around, they would be ready!

What should Christians be educated in politically? I know many will answer with things like fiscal policy, service delivery and the like. However, I believe there are issues that outweigh the aforementioned issues by a landslide! These issues are moral issues! Issues such as legalized abortion, pornography, same-sex marriage and more.

Since the ANC has taken over the ruling of South Africa, they have had free reign in "immoralizing" South Africa. It is because of the ANC that approximately 50,000 babies are murdered each year. They are the ones that legalized pornography and also same-sex marriage.

In all of these issues the DA party simply has no policy that stands against these issues with any conviction. The DA calls these issues matters of conscience, and allows its representatives free votes on these issues. In the case of
pornography the DA wants protection for children. But that is as far as it goes. In these matters the DA has been no opposition to the ANC in government.

The problem with giving party representatives free votes on issues of conscience (which are clear moral issues), is that the party has no objective stance against the
"immoralization" of South Africa! This will lead to a clear divided stance against issues of morality.

This is where the ACDP takes a clear moral stand. While other parties equivocate at best on these issues or simply stand for the
"immoralization" of South Africa, the ACDP believes that it should stand firm on these issues according to what the Bible teaches!

It is my conviction that while blacks vote for the ANC and whites vote for the DA, this country will never see change in this country. The Christians that continue supporting the ANC because of historic, so-called "freedom" reasons, and those Christians that continue to support the DA because of their own historic, "protective" reasons, should start approaching the elections from a purely Christian, Biblical Worldview.

That Worldview tells us that while Christians continue to vote dividedly for parties that have no convictions concerning objective Biblical morality, South Africa will continue to evolve into a more progressive, sinful and immoral state!

We are in search of Godly leaders! I find it hard to swallow that Christians would vote for parties that have no clear moral stand against immorality! It might not be impossible to find Godly leaders in any party, yet I do believe that it would be easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for such parties to have real Godly leaders! If such a leader could be found, it would probably be a very confused leader!

I in no way want to declare that the ACDP is perfect, but what I want to declare is that the ACDP leaders want to do right in the eyes of the Lord Jesus Christ! It is for this reason that the ACDP stands against this legalized immorality.

It just amazes me that liberals will always tell conservatives that we can't legislate morality. If that is the case, why would it be right to legislate immorality? In fact, what else can be legislated but morality? Any law that is in the law books discerns between (according to the current government) what is right and what is wrong! That presupposes some kind of morality for the nation. Just a pity that the ANC is so consistent with its own version of morality--which actually is immorality!

Yet, this kind of "morality" was prophesied about by the prophet Isaiah more than 2500 years ago, "Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!" (Isa 5:20) Matthew, one of the apostles of Jesus wrote, "The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil." (Mat 12:35) This is so true of our current government! They have produced all this evil simply because "out of [its] evil treasure" it is bringing forth evil!

Now is the time for Christians to wake up and to stand for what is right! What the current government has done, is not right!
