The REAL Jews of South Africa?

Over time we have posted numerous articles on this blog in both English and Afrikaans which address the subjects of British-Israelism (“Israel Vision”) and the Hebrew Roots Movement. In South Africa, these belief systems have a rather large following, and in particular among the Afrikaner people. Although there are many different streams within these belief systems, they all have in common some form of false belief that they are either descendants of the Jewish people by inheritance, by birthright or by divine proclamation.

Additionally, as in some other, mostly Western, countries, these remain highly controversial subjects and the indoctrinated followers of these cult-like movements vehemently defend their positions, often with great eloquence and with what they firmly believe to be, Old Testament Scriptural support. Many of the deceived followers of these incorrect and false belief systems have commented at length in opposition to our articles and, in an almost equal number of instances, we have not approved their comments. With predictable regularity, these misled people lose all semblance of the measured, intellectual decency and Christian attitudes they portray at first, once they resort to cursing us when we do not publish their deceitful responses. There are very few names which we have not been called by these religious terrorists.

Although, to some this may seem to be unfair practice on our part, it remains our prerogative as to what is made public on this blog. This blog is not entitled, “For the Love of Falsehood”. We are accountable to all true Christians and to all those whom we do not know, but whom God has drawn to faith and salvation by His grace. The reason for posting the related articles has always been to expose the dangers posed by these false belief systems and to refute them. We do not post articles which oppose the “Israel Vision” and Hebrew Roots Movements in order to create a platform from which followers of these religious falsehoods, can further advertise their deceptive messages.

Neither has it been our intention to use the blog as a forum for any long-winded and, more than likely, fruitless, debate with those who are opposed to simple biblical and historical facts. By not approving many of the comments which support the South African form of British-Israelism, “Israel Vision” and Hebrew Roots Movements, we are at least able to limit, to a small degree, the exposure given to their false and deadly religious beliefs.

However, there is a group of South Africans who can rightfully lay claim to being of Jewish descent, and I’m sure that there will be many readers, and in particular many of our South African readers, who will find the following article very surprising. Continue reading

    Toestand Voor En Na Die Sondeval

Status Integritatis

Adam en Eva is met integriteit geskape. Met ʼn ware vrye wil om te kies om God te dien. Met die moontlikheid om te sondig en die moontlikheid om nie te sondig nie. Dit is geskape in liefde. Die boom van kennis kon hulle nie van eet nie, dit was al voorwaarde tot ʼn ewige lewe in die Paradys. Hulle was nie onskuldig geskape nie omrede hulle dan nie kon sondig nie. Dit was hulle toestand voor hulle val. Toe misbruik hulle, hulle vrye wil en sondig en is hulle dood in hulle sonde. Johan Heyns stel dit sekuur:

“Satan plant in die hart van die vrou twyfel oor die juiste bewoording, twyfel insake die presiese strekking daarvan, en twyfel veral ook aan die billikheid en regverdigheid van die goddelike gebod. Hy maak in haar hart hoogmoed wakker deur te suggereer dat hulle soos God, kan weet wat goed, en kwaad is. Hy prikkel haar begeerte en verlei haar, deur ʼn leuen te vertel, ten slotte tot daadwerklike ongehoorsaamheid aan en ongeloof in God. En, so staan die naakte sonde in sy historiese aanvang dan voor ons: Continue reading
