The Regeneration of South Africa

Just as the Messianic ideology of Marxism-Leninism is guiding the Soviet Union's missionary quest in southern Africa, so it is that Christianity may save the region from its ever-approaching dismal fate.

Whatever else one may think about South Africa, religious tolerance is widespread. There are no restrictions on any form of worship and all South African schools begin their day with prayer, something our "democratic" society will not permit. The vast majority of South Africans, black and white, are Christians. Eighty-five percent of the black community professes some form of Christian allegiance. Further, the majority of these worshippers could be classified as fundamentalists since they accept the literal interpretation of the Bible as God's word. Like the American experience, South Africa's has come at the expense of "mainline" churches.
