Open Letter to the South African President: Mr. Jacob Zuma

South African President Jacob Zuma and three of his wives

Dear Mr President,

This letter, I believe, is written to you at a time when this country is crying for proper governance. Before and ever since you have taken the presidential reigns of this lovely country South Africa, the press has had a field day with your presidential and private lifestyles — the facts are that you have made the headlines for mostly the wrong reasons. And more recently an article appeared in the Sunday Times newspaper titled: ‘It is time to talk about our moral code’ (February 21, 2010). This will also be addressed in this letter.

Mr President, it appears from the press and from many other well documented articles that fraud, crime and corruption are leprous illnesses that permeates the ruling party and government in general. What is saddening is that the citizens of South Africa go largely unprotected by the corrupt and insufficient governance that makes up the disorder of the day and they are the majority who are victims of the separatist elite’s non-performance and ever escalating sins of crime, fraud, greed, lawlessness and other evils that are polluting our society.

Mr President, it is time for the masses to hear the Truth and that will also include you, sir, and every civil servant of this nation.

While your party members want to protect your private life from the scrutiny of the public, what their short-sightedness and lack of understanding fails to comprehend is that when you chose to be a parliamentarian you became public domain. Mr President, you are accountable to those citizens who voted you into office and you are also accountable to those citizens who chose not to give you their democratic vote. You, sir, are therefore to rule impartially for all the peoples of South Africa and not only for the interests of your ANC comrades.

Mr President, recently stories of your ‘private sex life’ made public headlines, and you have acknowledged the facts that have become known. What is of great concern is the lack of morals that you are showing to a wide audience which includes our young generation — and also the international community who have also questioned your moral ethics. It is a fact that your rule is immoral and ungodly.

Mr President, you have acted immorally and without regard for the message that you are communicating to our children and as a public figure you should be the one who is to show respect of persons, morality and maturity in leading our nation. Your actions are in violation against Almighty God’s commands — and even if you or any other person does not want to believe in the One True God, you are still accountable to Him by your behaviour.

Mr President, there has been campaigns that have been instigated by government where parliamentarians have encouraged persons to ‘be-wise-and-condomise’ and then tell the people to abstain from sex to prevent HIV/AIDS — what is the true message you are sending out? Not only have you not heeded these ‘suggestions’ you are also making South Africa a nation of fornicators (those who have sex outside the bounds of marriage). Mr President, by your actions you are a fornicator. This can set a dangerous trend where: If the president does it why should those following him not do like wise?

The Word of God (The Holy Bible) is clear when it says:

Genesis 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

From the Scripture references you will note that they are all in the singular — a man, his father, his mother, his wife, they [man and wife] shall become one flesh. From this you can see one man and one wife makes one marriage and you become one flesh. Mr President, to say your having many wives is your custom goes against what God says and it is a flagrant sin against Him as you are defying the Almighty’s rule of marriage. Mr President, The Bible says that man has invalidated the Word of God for the sake of your traditions (Matthew 15:6; Mark 7:8). By your traditions you make the Word of God of no effect.

By taking more than one wife, Mr President, you are committing adultery and thereby you are breaking the Seventh Commandment: You shall not commit adultery. Sir, you are also making your ‘wives’ adulteresses and by their willingness to enter into polygamous marriages, they, too, are committing adultery. Polygamy and being a polygamist are illegal acts. Mr President, playing your Zulu-custom card does not condone your sin and immoral acts. You might want to hold to your custom and ‘even expect others to tolerate and respect it’, but it is sin before an infinitely Holy and Righteous God. 1 John 3:4 reads –

1 John 3:4 Whosoever committeth sin transgresseth also the law: for sin is the transgression of the law.

Jesus also said –

John 8:34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.

Mr President, it is at this very time that you, and every other person reading this letter, should consider how you will stand before Almighty God on the Day of Judgment, for there is a day that is approaching –

Act 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. (my emphasis)

Each and every person will have to give an accounting of themselves on this Great and Fearful Day. People do not know when they will die — death comes upon people very suddenly and often by surprise and God’s Word warns you –

Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

how will you kneel before God? At this point you should examine your lifestyle against God’s Holy Standard, The Ten Commandments, and see where you are headed — Heaven? Or Hell?

How many lies have you told in your lifetime? If you have told a lie you are a liar in the sight of God. You don’t need to tell ten lies then a bell goes off or even ascribe a colour to your lie — a lie is a lie in God’s Wisdom. Have you ever stolen anything? This includes fraud, if you have you are a thief in the sight of God. We have already dealt with the committing of adultery, but listen what Jesus said –

Matthew 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
Matthew 5:28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

We have already dealt with this crime against God and He sees even the intentions of peoples’ hearts and their minds. This also includes the debauched acts of homosexual sex and marriages. South Africa became the fifth country in the world, and the first in Africa, to allow legal marriages between same-sex couples. This law which was promulgated by the ANC is a heinous stench before the LORD –

Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Have you ever committed murder? God’s Word says that if you are angry and hate anyone you have committed murder in the heart. Jesus said –

Matthew 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
Matthew 5:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

1 John 3:5 And ye know that he was manifested to take away our sins; and in him is no sin.

Mr President, murder also includes abortion which your ANC party, under the ex-president Mr Mandela, promulgated the abortion law on February 1, 1997 and since then over 900,000 South African babies have been brutally murdered officially, legally and with tax payers’ money.

Have you ever blasphemed God? Or made reference to Him or His Son Jesus by not showing Him the rightful reverence He deserves? It is evident from an article that appeared in Africa News that you have openly blasphemed God by making reference that God agrees with the ANC’s policies, quote:

He said church leaders must persuade believers to vote for the ANC. “When priests pray for poverty to end and for development, then it means God agrees with the ANC because the ANC stands for those things,” Zuma said.

“When you preach in your churches, just explain to the congregation – in a paragraph – about the ANC. People who love God must not play with their votes, they must vote for the ANC,” said Zuma.

He added: “We in the ANC know God. When the ANC was born, it was baptized. We have respect, we are beautiful, and we conduct ourselves in a good way.”

Mr President, it is clear that you have mocked Almighty God by making fun and jokes about Him and His children. If you, or the ANC, know God you will keep His commandments –

1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.

God says He will hold everyone guilty for using His Name in vain. [“ANC to rule till Jesus comes” – Jacob Zuma]

Mr President, on the Day of Judgment when the Supreme Judge of the Universe, Almighty God holds Court; and He judges you according to His infinitely Holy Standard and Righteousness and finds that you, and all sinners, have transgressed His Law and you are found to be a liar, a thief, an adulterer and a fornicator, a murderer and a blasphemer, to mention a few charges, will you be innocent or guilty? The Bible says that all who sin against God will be guilty and not enter into the Kingdom of God.

1 Corinthians 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
1 Corinthians 6:10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

The Word of God is clear and concise for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). If God gives you the justice you rightfully deserve, you will be found guilty and God will send you to Hell for eternity — it is His place that He has set aside for eternal damnation for the lawless to be punished by His Divine Wrath.

Knowing that you will be condemned into Hell for all eternity should be horrifying you at this point. If you are not trembling and fearful then you have not seen your sin as being exceedingly sinful before an infinitely, Holy, Righteous, Good, Sovereign and Just God.

There will be no entering into appeals against His judgment. There will be no Constitutional Court or Court of Appeal. God’s JUDGMENT is final and binding for eternity. Receiving a guilty verdict means receiving Hell for eternity. Don’t make light of Hell; it’s a very real place of torment. Jesus spoke more about Hell than about Heaven. Heading for damnation in the fiery pit of Hell should concern you. It should make you extremely fearful. This is really bad news.

However, there is Good News and this is the only way man can escape Hell’s eternal torment. About 2000 years ago God sent His Son Jesus Christ to this world on a mission. What took place was God choosing to reveal Himself in the person of His Son Jesus Christ, the Anointed One. The Deity of Christ is revealed in The Holy Scriptures, God’s Word — The Bible –

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
John 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

Jesus, the God-man was conceived by the Holy Spirit and He was born to a virgin named Mary –

Luke 1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
Luke 1:29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
Luke 1:30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
Luke 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
Luke 1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
Luke 1:34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. (Notethe angel sent by God to His maidservant Mary was the angel Gabriel)

He came into the world as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).

Jesus entered into His earthly ministry and this is an account by the apostle Peter –

Act 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:
Act 10:35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
Act 10:36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)
Act 10:37 That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;
Act 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
Act 10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
Act 10:40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
Act 10:41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
Act 10:42 And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.
Act 10:43 To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Act 11:17 Forasmuch then as God gave them the like gift as he did unto us, who believed on the Lord Jesus Christ; what was I, that I could withstand God?
Act 11:18 When they heard these things, they held their peace, and glorified God, saying, Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life.

Mr President, with reference to your Sunday Times interview, I quote:

“He [Zuma] appeared shocked and surprised by the outrage that followed the scandal, telling the Sunday Times: “There are Muslims, Christians, Jews, Pedis and so on … How do we live together with an understanding that we understand each other?

“Values may not exactly be the same, but how do we bring harmony to this?”

Mr President, the problem is not about ‘understanding each other’, because it is not about us and our diverse religions, values and communities. The answer is: It is ALL ABOUT GOD (YHVH) AND NOTHING ELSE MATTERS!! It doesn’t matter what you believe in. What matters is what you believe in is it true? If the God of Creation is not centre in everyone’s lives their evil and wicked ways will persist. The God of the Holy Bible has given us the First Commandment that He is to be the Only God and we all are to worship Him with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and the Second Commandment reads that we are to have no idols (gods) before Him. If man is trying to resolve anything and he has broken the first two commandments then anything else man tries to accomplish will come to naught. Worshiping other gods (including addressing songomas and praying to ancestors) is idolatry and eternal punishment in Hell awaits all idolaters. There is a real spiritual war being waged between the Kingdom of Light (God) and the kingdom of darkness (satan). Satan uses religion to keep people in the darkness blinded to the Truth — he does not want to go to Hell only with his demons.

Man relies on religion to try appease God for their evil and wicked lives. God says in His Word, speaking through His prophet Isaiah –

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

The prophet Isaiah employed our righteous deeds by using the imagery of menstrual cloths used during a woman’s period to picture uncleanness (cf. Leviticus 15:19-24). Man tries to get right with God by his works, but they are a stench before Almighty God. So it is through God’s mercy by Him granting us grace (unmerited favour) that we can be saved. For we are justified by grace alone, through faith alone by trusting in Jesus Christ alone that a man can have his sins forgiven and be reconciled back to God.

Ephesians 2:1 And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
Ephesians 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
Ephesians 2:3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
Ephesians 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Ephesians 2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Ephesians 2:6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Ephesians 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Jesus said –

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Jesus said He is the Way and so any other way man tries to get saved by is a false way. Jesus said He is the Truth — therefore any other ‘truth’ is a lie, because there can only be one Truth. And Jesus said He is the Life — you cannot receive life through any other.

2 Chronicles 7:11 Thus Solomon finished the house of the LORD, and the king’s house: and all that came into Solomon’s heart to make in the house of the LORD, and in his own house, he prosperously effected.
2 Chronicles 7:12 And the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said unto him, I have heard thy prayer, and have chosen this place to myself for an house of sacrifice.
2 Chronicles 7:13 If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people;
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:15 Now mine eyes shall be open, and mine ears attent unto the prayer that is made in this place.
2 Chronicles 7:16 For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name may be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually.
2 Chronicles 7:17 And as for thee, if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, and do according to all that I have commanded thee, and shalt observe my statutes and my judgments;
2 Chronicles 7:18 Then will I stablish the throne of thy kingdom, according as I have covenanted with David thy father, saying, There shall not fail thee a man to be ruler in Israel.
2 Chronicles 7:19 But if ye turn away, and forsake my statutes and my commandments, which I have set before you, and shall go and serve other gods, and worship them;
2 Chronicles 7:20 Then will I pluck them up by the roots out of my land which I have given them; and this house, which I have sanctified for my name, will I cast out of my sight, and will make it to be a proverb and a byword among all nations.
2 Chronicles 7:21 And this house, which is high, shall be an astonishment to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house?
2 Chronicles 7:22 And it shall be answered, Because they forsook the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore hath he brought all this evil upon them.

A Plea to the Unsaved

There are some of you standing in these aisles and sitting in these pews, who I feel in my soul will never have another invitation, and if this be rejected today, I feel a solemn motion in my soul — I think it is of the Holy Ghost — that you will never hear another faithful sermon, but you shall go down to Hell impenitent, unsaved, except you trust in Jesus now. I speak not as a man, but I speak as God’s ambassador to your souls, and I command you, in God’s name, trust Jesus, trust now. At your peril reject the voice that speaks from Heaven, for “he that believeth not shall be damned.” How shall you escape if you neglect so great salvation. When it comes right home to you, when it thrusts itself in your way, oh, if you will neglect it how can you escape? With tears I would invite you, and, if I could, would compel you to come in. Why will you not? Oh souls, if you will be damned, if you make up your mind that no mercy shall ever woo you, and no warnings shall ever move you, then, sirs, what chains of vengeance must you feel that slight these bonds of love. You have deserved the deepest Hell, for you slight the joys above. God save you. He will save you, if you trust in Jesus. God help you to trust Him even now for Jesus’ sake. Amen. ~ Charles Haddon Spurgeon

And with my Brother in Christ who has gone to our Lord Jesus in glory, I speak not as a man, but I speak as God’s ambassador to your souls –

2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Mr President, as an ambassador of God, I call you and the citizens of South Africa to REPENT (turn from and forsake) of your evil and wicked sin and believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is your only hope.

An unworthy sinner, saved by grace
Gary Crous

  1. What is spoken here is the truth.

    We need repentance in our Country – in all spheres of society – which very much include our churches.

    Jesus prayed that we should be one as He, the Father and the Holy Spirit is one – may this be so, by the power of almighty God.

    We in the body of Christ need repentance – as we have different doctrines and denominations and whilst we are the disciples of Christ, we bring mockery to His name as what we live and project is a divided message. There is something seriously wrong in our own midst – God does not speak with a divided tongue.

    We desperately need revival and the outpouring of God’ Holy Spirit – not only over our President, but each one of us as individuals.

    May God be merciful to us as the South African nation, may His glory cover the earth like the waters cover the seas.

    The Spirit and the bride says “Come, Lord Jesus, come!”

  2. Hello Annette,

    I agree with your response. Yes, we the Body of Believers are to start within the Church. There has to be a purging of the leaven (sin) within the Body of Christ – first.

    You have spoken the Truth, sister.

  3. A very necessary letter and true witness about what God is saying through His Word, and those prepared to be a clear voice, to our government, even though it probably does not acknowledge it.
    Although we are appalled at its level of wickedness and outright blasphemy, we need to recognise that God has providentially placed the ANC government in authority (Rom 13:1) to serve His sovereign purpose. Therefore as believers we are obligated to pray for those in authority, but also to hold them accountble to the Word of God. They, and every person who has rejected Jesus Christ as Saviour, will be without excuse on Judgement Day.
    I know that many Christians would like to make this world a better place – that will not happen until Jesus Christ comes to reign, and then the glory of God will indeed cover this earth. Our primary mission is to preach the gospel, to the glory of God.
    Of course, with God-fearing people in government – both politicians and civil servants – we should see more justice and righteousness in civil society, and for this every single Christian and local church in the country should earnestly pray, and be a clear testimony to the change that a living faith in Jesus Christ brings.
    Who knows, perhaps Jacob Zuma is right – the ANC might very well still be in power when Jesus Christ comes again. Words like these spoken in jest, or with arrogant pride, might be a “self-fulfilling prophecy.” Nevertheless, they remain blasphemous, and God will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

    Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus.

  4. Sir your letter sounds sincere since its points out to many blunders of the ruling party and some of the wrongdoings of President Zuma. However you need to be riminded of the Bible scriptures against your utterences. You might want to read Luke 18:9-14 and you will realise you are doing exactly what the Pharisee was doing. Also read Matthew 7:1-4 it tals about people like you. As for being justified by faith alone read James 2:14-26, you will see that we are NOT justified by faith alone. Faith alone is dead, its useless. The Jesus you profess to be your Saviour would be ashamed of your behaviour, so stop playing God you are NOT.

    • Dear Sir

      Thank you for your comment. Your opening statements appear contradictory. However, it is clear from your references that you are misquoting Scripture to fit your precepts and your world view. The Pharisee prayed and thanked God that he wasn’t like other men as can be read in Luke 18:11,12 ~

      (11) The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican. (12) I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

      I do not profess to be better than other men, but I do realise that I was a reprobate, a wicked and evil sinner – a wretched man who is saved by grace. I am also thankful to my Lord Jesus Christ that the old man is dead:

      Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17

      Matthew 7:1-4 deals with a person actually making a judgment and condemning the person by such judgment. Please read the post again, slowly, and you will note I am not judging by passing a judgment on any person saying he has no hope and he will be in hell for all eternity. Only God passes that judgment. I am pointing their sin out through their ungodly lifestyles and then pointing them to the Saviour just as Jesus did often in Scripture, and more specifically the accounts of the Rich Young Ruler which can be read in Matthew 19:16-26, Mark 10:17-27 and Luke 18:18-27. In Mark’s account it says in verse 21: “Then Jesus beholding him loved him,” (my emphasis). Jesus also said, as it is written:

      Judge not according to the appearance: but judge righteous judgment. ~ John 7:28

      The Holy Scriptures is what will judge a man and it is the righteous judgment that Jesus refers to. Read John 3:18,36 to see ungodly sinners are condemned already by God’s Word:

      (18) He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

      (36) He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

      The post is to call our President and this nation to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ as the Kingdom of heaven is at hand. As a disciple of Christ I am called to preach the Gospel of Salvation in Jesus Christ alone. The Great Commission (Matthew 28:28-20; Mark 16:15,16; Acts 1:8) is given to every believer who names the name of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. To deny Jesus as the Christ is to deny God.

      James 2:14-26 is dealing with the “good works” that you will show to your brother / neighbour that justify you that you are living by faith. If there is no works that accompanies your faith then it is dead. The good works that one should be doing are those which God has before ordained:

      (8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (9) Not of works, lest any man should boast. (10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. ~ Ephesians 2:8-10

      Have you also not read, as it is written?

      They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. ~ Titus 1:16

      The context that I used of “faith alone in Jesus Christ alone” is that the President and many other professing believers are putting their faith in another god / prophet / guru and not God’s Saviour Jesus Christ. The mercy and grace extended to me by God Almighty, I now extend to the President and this nation. Calling me a Pharisee, it would appear that you have just judged me! The Lord Jesus Christ said, in Luke 13:3 ~

      I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

      Have you also not read Ezekiel 3:17-21? Examine how God made the prophet Ezekiel a watchman. My friend, if I say I love God and do not warn any person that their lifestyle will lead them to hell for eternity, then by my lack of compassion for the lost will show that I do not love God. It is because I do love God that I must warn everyone:

      (21) Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. (22) And of some have compassion, making a difference: (23) And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. ~ Jude 21-23

      Please also read “The sword of the LORD and Gideon.”
