The Elect

I was thinking about just how many of those that profess faith in Christ are truly saved. I see so many cultural Christians and false converts it sort of depresses me. I recall Scripture indicating that narrow is the way to salvation and few who take it. And even Jonathan Edwards believed that only about 5% of his congregation were truly saved, and that was during a time of the Great Awakening and when people were much more churched than they are now. Is it possible that 95% of those who profess faith in Christ are actually lost and will be the ones who the Lord says "Depart from me." What do you think?

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone! We are celebrating Christ Immanuel, the Word who became Flesh for our sakes. The incarnation is such an awesome event. God humbled Himself and came to earth as the God-Man to pay the price for our sins so that we could be redeemed. Such amazing love!

Please enjoy this performance of Bach's Christmas Oratorio (Weihnachtsoratorium), BWV 248. Nikolaus Harnoncourt is conducting. Performers include Concentus Musicus Wien and soloists of the outstanding Tölzer Knabenchor. Soloists Peter Schreier (tenor) and Robert Holl (bass) really stand out. This performance is from 1982. You can purchase it here.

Nelson Mandela is dead

Mandela was a lifelong Communist.

Mandela is being fawned over in the liberal mainstream media as a great hero. The reality is far darker. Mandela is a terrorist and a murderer. Mandela was on the US terrorist watch list until 2008. He was head of the military wing of the ANC and carried out numerous bombings and executions of whites and blacks in South Africa. Women and children were among the victims. Mandela was convicted in court of 156 counts of terrorism and violence. And he had a fair trial. Amnesty International refused to take on his case because they felt the trial was proper. It is also no secret, though he tried to suppress it for years, that Mandela was a diehard communist and had close ties to the Soviet Union and Cuba. He wrote, in his own handwriting, a 56 page book on how to be a good communist. I'm sick of seeing the media whitewash history and portray a murdering thug as some sort of beloved freedom fighter. During the 1960s and 1970s several Africa countries, such as Angola, were taken over by Communists. The violence, terrorism, torture and murders which ensued were directly linked to Communism.

Racism against whites has been rampant in South Africa since the ANC assumed power. Tens of thousands of whites in South Africa and tens of thousands of blacks have been murdered by the ANC. Are things in South Africa better today compared to when Apartheid was still in place? The answer is a resounding no. Conditions are far worse today. South Africa went from being the most peaceful and safe country in Africa with a thriving economy and the best standard of living in all of Africa, under Apartheid, to now leading Africa in rape and murder, leading the world in AIDS infections and there is massive unemployment, government corruption and millions of jobs have been lost, the economy is in shambles. This is the legacy of Mandela and the ANC.

It should be noted that Mandela legalized abortion on demand, pornography and homosexuality. Also we should remember the fact that Mandela never apologized to his victims. He never once showed any true Biblical repentance. It's so sad that people actually admire Mandela. He was a ruthless terrorist and a murderer. In the final analysis Mandela was a vile and despicable man who hated whites and hated his fellow blacks who went against him. I am glad this evil man is dead. Mandela is now roasting in Hell.

Here are some excellent articles on Mandela and his numerous crimes: 

Finally this article is well worth reading, though I should warn you that it has some graphic images.
