Zuma calls for a speedy Second Coming

2014-12-28 10:35

Durban - Addressing a group of elderly people at a Christmas gathering at his Nkandla homestead, President Jacob Zuma called on Christian priests to pray to God to send Jesus back to Earth because of the many sins in the country.

According to the Sunday Times, Zuma had been speaking off the cuff on Saturday and claimed there were many churches in the country “sinning too much”.

“The sins we have today are more than those that Jesus came to salvage. I ask the priests to ask God to send His son to come back again to cleanse our sins,” he said.

“He [God] must send him [Jesus] again. This time we won’t crucify him,” he added.

Christmas party

Zuma hosted the Christmas party for over 5 000 senior citizens at Nkandla, in KwaZulu-Natal on Saturday.

“President Zuma handed the senior citizens Christmas gifts that included blankets, food packages and a Christmas cake, while a variety of their favourite music artists successively shared the stage," spokesperson Zanele Mngadi said at the time.

Zuma said he was delighted to show love and compassion for senior citizens.

"We remind them that they are very important and that from them we learn many things everyday. They are important resources of the history of their families and that of the nation," he said.

The party, which is in its tenth year, was held at Mnyakanya High School.

Zuma was accompanied by Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini, her deputy Hendrietta Bogopane-Zulu, KwaZulu-Natal MEC for health Sibongiseni Dlomo, Agriculture and Rural Development MEC Cyril Xaba and Ethekwini Mayor James Nxumalo.

    And the biggest "sin" is Jacob himself...

      JannieDeVos - 2014-12-28 10:55

      I thought the ANC was going to rule until Jesus comes. Now he wants a speedy Second Coming. Could it be that our Prez is throwing in the towel..? ;-)

      Doomkop Zuma - 2014-12-28 10:56

      EISH RAPIST!!!!SINS OF THE COUNTRY....LOL,,,THAT COMING FROM THE THIEVING RAPIST OF THE A.N.C,,,HA HA HA HA HOU LEKKER LAG EK NOU....GOGO.....THE SINS OF THE COUNTRY ONLY STARED WHEN THE ANC CAME INTO POWER

      Stephen AndKathy Whiteley - 2014-12-28 11:29

      How can a man who is so corrupt and unrepentant ask God for anything except forgiveness? He should read 2 Chronicles 7:14 "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS, ..." and make it his daily mantra. Unfortunately so many people think Zuma is God and worship him. Kathy

      Jacques Otto - 2014-12-28 11:29

      Typical...however unlike blaming apartheid....he rather asks for judgement day instead of getting of his behind and fix things. I mean rather than use the position afforded to you he prefers for the world to end....WTF. Also Zuma you must decide if you are a Christian a polygamist....a traditionalist....a tribalist...Sorry the party you govern has a communist arm....socialist arm and a capitalist arm so how do we expect you to take direction or a stand in your own believe. We moss believe and decide as it happens using which ever believe closest to justify out action. I simply cany wait for this president to go..

      Frank Reid-Robertson - 2014-12-28 11:43

      The sacrifice was for all sins. When he comes again he will come for his bride the Church (Rapture). Seven years later he will return with the church as King to Rule for 1000 yrs. It is already written and cannot be changed.

      Daan le Roux - 2014-12-28 11:48

      Dilusional!

      the cartoon from zapiro comes to mind.....

      lacrimosewolf - 2014-12-28 12:27

      Ja well for an ordained minister he is all over the place. Remember peeps how he blamed Christianity for some of South Africa's woes "Those were times that the religious people refer to as dark days but we know that, during those times, there were no orphans or old-age homes. Christianity has brought along these things"

      Henk Els - 2014-12-28 12:30

      The biggest sin is that this illiterate, dishonourable man is still the president of this country.

      fargone - 2014-12-28 12:36

      He of all people should be carefull of what he asks! he has no understunding.

      Du Toit Grobler - 2014-12-28 13:09

      Zuma sou gese^ het dat die wederkoms van Christus verhaas moet word - Zuma, jy kan God nie manupileer soos jy die bevolking van Suid-Afrika manupileer nie - God laat nie met Hom spot nie - Sy tyd is nie ons tyd nie - is jy bevrees jou opmerking dat die ANC tot by die wederkoms sal regeer al minder moontlik en waarskynlik lyk?

      Ernica Stanford - 2014-12-28 13:12

      Now we know why Deputy President Ramaphosa had to give the Christmas greeting to SA.

      Glen McKillop - 2014-12-28 13:18

      Can someone help us get this idiot out of the public eye? He devalues the rand by simply opening his mouth.

      Du Toit Grobler - 2014-12-28 13:20

      Ernica, In welke opsig is Ramaphosa enigsins 'n beter opsie vir SA?

      sthembize.zulu - 2014-12-28 14:23

      Don't judge says the bible; also the message is more important than the messenger.

      "The sins we have today are more than those that Jesus came to salvage. I ask the priests to ask God to send His son to come back again to cleanse our sins." Mr President, this statement show us how ignorant you are about the plan of God for salvation. Christ Jesus dealt with sin once and for all. He dealt with sins committed before he came, sins committed while he was walking this earth and sins that will be committed by future generations, after he has departed (not dead) - up until he returns.

      Siyanda.Mda - 2014-12-28 14:34

      This headline is also not correctly worded. What the President is talking about here is not the Second Coming. The President is still talking about the cleansing of sins - which was dealt with by Christ in his First Coming. The President wrongly thinks that the LORD did not deal with sin in its entirety. Mr Jacob Zuma is flatly wrong. In fact, his cleaner, Mac Maharaj has some cleaning to do.

      Adrian Bruwer - 2014-12-29 09:45

      All Christians pray for that, but this one boggles my mind! I'd be worried if I were you - restitution jumps to mind.

      Dunte Devante - 2014-12-29 12:09

      The sooner Jesus comes the sooner zuma will get sent to hell so indeed, we need to pray for a speedy return.

      Mike Heyns - 2014-12-29 19:30

      What in this world does he know anything about the com..........??? Rather keep my mouth shut as he is an expert!!

      Zuma's going is more important than Jesus' coming

    To quote Zipper himself. "The ANC will rule until Jesus returns." COMEAAAAAN Jesus.

      Henk Els - 2014-12-28 12:31

      Sadick, go and study the constitution. Mbeki already tried and failed

      Piete Koo - 2014-12-28 13:25

      Even Zuma by this wish, wants the ANC to stop ruling.

      Mike Heyns - 2014-12-28 14:41

      Didnt' Satan also challenged Jesus? And Dingaan asking Piet Retief for a visit, only to lead him into an ambush and killed him?

      Mike Heyns - 2014-12-28 16:10

      BTW, for someone in his "religious" position to start grabbing at straws can only mean that you exploring the last resort where not even your "pals" can help anymore!! The wheel turns, slowly but surely!!

    Zuma is merely admitting that the crime levels are too high despicable and gross in nature. Good to know the president has taken note.

      lacrimosewolf - 2014-12-28 11:08

      Well as President of the country he must sort out SAPS and our overall weak justice system.

      Peter my 4 children and seven grown up grand children all from four continents (not Australia) are sending me e mails referring to overseas publications where this palooka is constantly ridiculed. No real S.A people can be patriotic, and since Zuma started spewing his Christian "knowledge " and at last he is also making a fool of Tutu and is not repudiated by the churches i have become religious neutral as "the High Priest " cannot be trusted.

    "This time we won't crucify him" Showerhead, how on earth can you say that? By majority vote of more than 90% it comes as no surprize that readers of a Sunday Newspaper voted you for the third year in a row for the "Mampara Of The Year Award" 2014. You have a minimum of two mandates. Number one, stop considering yourself "holy". Number two, PAY BACK THE MONEY!!!

      Nikki Downes - 2014-12-28 15:21

    The more scientifically literate, intellectually honest and objectively sceptical a person is, the more likely they are to disbelieve in anything supernatural, including god. J Pararajasingham Hmmm, now as for JZ, he is neither literate nor an intellectual. As for being objective, sad to say, lacking in that department as well. That would explain his obsession with a so called "god". It surely comforts him at night . . . Right, now for a cup of tea and my superman comic . . . .

And then : “He [God] must send him [Jesus] again. This time we won’t crucify him,” he added. So who is "WE" ? I really think the last marbles have finally rolled out of Zuma's ears...can someone PLEASE replace this FOOL that is our president - because he's a severe embarrassment to our entire country: EVERY time he speaks or makes a statement it's either pure garbage or senseless drivel.

      Nikki Downes - 2014-12-28 16:34

      I cringed again at every word you re typed here. Zuma is clearly off his head now. I'm sure Ramaposa will 'deny' all of this tomorrow as being 'misquoted out of context' again. In a way I hope he does as this reflects poorly on us all!

It is about a President who calls for the coming of Christ as this nation and world is beyond repair.....however he is the one lacking moral standing making statement and bringing all of mankind down to his level of moral standing. He does this to show all are as guilty and wrotten as he is when in fact he should repent and step down showing remorse for his own sin.
