South Africa Here We Come

South Africa is Teaching Us a Lesson, Will We Learn? – Conversations That Matter

    • Not only are older books on South African history destroyed and replaced with Marxist retellings, but geographic locations have been renamed and monuments to white South Africans taken down. Sound familiar?
    • The present day Black Lives Matter movement echoes the policies and attitudes of South African political groups like the African National Congress, Black First Land First, and the Economic Freedom Fighters who are known for calling for the deaths of white farmers at their rallies. 
    • Between 2012 and 2016 the attacks on farms increased 72.9% according to the Blood Sisters, a private organization responsible for cleaning up crime scenes.
    • These statistics are both undocumented and unreported by the government and news organizations.
    • The drowning of a twelve year old in boiling hot water, an elderly man ambushed and shot execution style in the head six times in his own home, and an elderly woman strangled and her eyes gouged out with a kitchen fork are just a few of the incidents. Unfortunately, the government offers little assistance and rural farmers have to coordinate their own protection.
    • As people and organizations in the Unites States wrestle with questions of critical race theory, intersectionality, and all that co mes with them, including deconstructing history and considering reparations, I hope they will remember what is happening in South Africa.

One thought on “South Africa Here We Come”

  1. Great article. Will we learn our lesson? Probably not.

    I think this sort of thing repeats itself throughout history; I see similar events happening in historical books like Isaiah and Jeremiah. God shows us how he dealt with nations, starting with His own, but by no means ending with His own (see Jer 46-52).  To what purpose does He shows us all this?

    This sound similar.
    Jeremiah 50:16 “Cut off the sower from Babylon And the one who wields the sickle at the time of harvest; From before the sword of the oppressor They will each turn back to his own people And they will each flee to his own land.

    I cannot imagine the cries of horror that came out of South Africa.

    Jeremiah 48:10 “Cursed be the one who does the Lord’s work negligently, And cursed be the one who restrains his sword from blood.

    Maybe Jeremiah borrowed the phrase from a child who saw his parents murdered by the evil that swept over his land.

    Jer 48:11-12 “[this country] has been at ease since his youth; He has also been undisturbed, like wine on its dregs, And he has not been emptied from vessel to vessel, Nor has he gone into exile. Therefore he retains his flavor, And his aroma has not changed. [the stench of accumulated sin remains undisturbed] 12 “Therefore behold, the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when I will send to him those who tip vessels, and they will tip him over, and they will empty his vessels and shatter his jars

    I’m afraid that ride from jar to jar is going to be a rough one. We probably should build a boat.
