In a thought provoking piece Dr Albert Mohler draws out the complexity surrounding our celebrated leader Nelson Mandela. He demonstrates the indispensability of the man as a leader in the course of South Africa’s history in a way that is illustrative of the ironies of history.
As Dr Mohler says:
“Nelson Mandela was one of those men. He was essential—even indispensable—to his nation and to the eradication of apartheid. But no man’s life is heroic in every respect, and no human hero can save.
God alone can save us from ourselves, and he saves us through the atonement accomplished by the Son, Jesus Christ. There is salvation in no other name, no matter how honored on earth.”
