Mandela: Another Jesus on Earth

Nelson Mandela was a second model of Jesus on earth and so it is also safe to say he was a true Christian. He had endless faith and patience and most of all love. Only LOVE acts in this way. Let us follow his example.

The Glory of God

Should anyone wonder or even ponder Madiba "Nelson Mandela", think and then ask yourself, "Is My Living In Vain? Nelson Mandela showed all of us humility, forgiveness, love and grace even in the face of burdening adversity! God created Matiba for all to witness, a humble servant for eternity! Rest on Madiba, You have earned your heavenly reward!

What I Admire Most About Mandela

He is selflessness, left power when citizens of South Africa still want him, He has forgiven the people who put him in jail for 27 years. He was radical, he told the west that their enemies cannot be SA enemies.

Father Madiba.

Madiba is the hero to all of us in South Africa. If I didn't know Jesus, I would say father Madiba is Jesus. He followed Lord Jesus's ways. I love you tata Madiba. From the bottom of my heart. I'll celebrate your life ... everyday. You are the promise keeper ... the greatest of power ... you are the best. You made South Africa a better place for us.

Ms Ndlovu

Mandela was a great leader because he forgave easily for the good of all South Africans. He put the people first not his personal agendas. These days countries are struggling because leaders are selfish its no longer about the people, but Dr Mandela against all odds it was about the people of South Africa.
