South Africa and the Human Condition.

Clip taken from: The Big Debate: Whiteness.

Reminds me of how many in Southern Ireland still blame the British for the mass starvation during the ‘Potato Famine’ when the average age of the common Brit in Manchester England, was eighteen years old because those who made those decisions where the upper-class in British society and not the common man. For our problem isn’t race, colour, wealth or power... but the human condition.

Jeremiah 17:9
The heart [of fallen man] is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

So, as soon as an individual, group, colour, race, ideology or whatever gains the advantage over others... they nearly always abuse them, this is why it is written...

1 Corinthians 15:50
Now this I say, brethren, that [this fallen] flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

God is never going to allow fallen man into His eternal order in this corrupted state, which is why we must be born-again...

John 3:7
Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Not of this fallen flesh as we were before... but of God.

John 1:12-13
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:
13 - Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Let’s face it, if one of the black south African’s in the audience living in a slum, suddenly came into millions they would be living in a gated community within a week and oppressing the poor within years by investing into the same projects as the wealthy whites that do not favour the poor, but force them to move on as they take their land to build five bedroom houses for their wealthy customers.

The problem isn’t about race, colour or money but our fallen state, a condition that can only be rectified through faith in Christ Jesus, His death and resurrection which are the only things that can truly change the heart.
