On Sunday evening I preached on the theme, “How to emigrate to the real South-Africa”. The word, emigrate, was deliberately chosen. With our country’s fledgling democracy a lot of people haven’t left the old South-Africa and therefore we have to emigrate to the new South-Africa.
After the sermon a huge Afrikaner man approached me, and I must confess that I was a little scared. He said to me, “your sermon made me feel like a ‘poephol’ – Afrikaans for asshole.” He then said that he is a huge racist and that he felt God tugging at his heart. I could only respond that God loves poephol’s, like me and him!
