The influence of Angus Buchan has reached to most nooks and crannies of the South African church. I stood, recently with two DVDs in my hands. One was Angus' message at Loftus, given to me with a strong recommendation from a brother in Christ whom I respect. The other was Angus' message at Loftus (exactly the same DVD), given to me by a brother in Christ whom I respect. Two vastly varying responses to the same sermon. Seeing so many who lack the ability to distinguish between what is true and what is not, has become a huge burden on my heart.
After writing a letter of appeal to Angus, and not having had any response, I have felt compelled to do what I can to help people whom I love and care for, to discern between the truth and error promoted by Angus.
In his Loftus sermon, he said that before the people left there on that day, they would know what it is to be born again. Sadly, they went away starved of truth and not knowing what it is to be born again. Paul convinces me that it is through the message of the Gospel that people are born again. How I appeal to Angus to preach THE Gospel of God. How I appeal to those who have been left hungry and disillusioned by Angus to hear THE Gospel I preach in this sermon and the one that follows it (parts 1 and 2).
I would love to hear from you if these messages have impacted your life.
According to my cousin, he has listened to a radio interview with Angus (week before Easter 09 I think) where the presenter (person named Freek) asked Angus whether he would tell South African Muslims that they have it wrong concerning Jesus as being the only way to God and that one could not come via Mohamed for example. After some gymnastics from Angus (to avoid answering the question) and under duress as a result of pressure from the interviewer to drive an answer out of him, he responded by saying: â€śNo I wonâ€™t tell Muslims they have it wrong...â€ť. I have searched the internet for a transcript but could not divvy anything up. Are you perhaps aware of this, i.e. could you point out where weâ€™re able to obtain such a transcript?
There are other things, such as a â€śheart shaped cloudâ€ť that apparently appeared at a venue Angus was talking at. I have also heard that Angus admitted that the woman in his Film (potatoes) was in fact never dead but that the film makers made her out to be to add sensation to the film in order to attract an audience. I could not find confirmation of these things, but obviously would like to obtain more clarity on them, because we all would like to understandfor the sake of educating ourselves.
