Evangelist Pastor Angus Buchan has apologised to the nation for his remarks, captured in an audio recording, that only Jewish and Afrikaans people shared a covenant with God.

"I would like to apologise and clear up any misunderstanding that I might have made with my statement that went out recently," he said in another statement on Facebook.

...

In the clip, which is audio edited with photo of Buchan, the pastor says the "emphasis" of this particular meeting would be "on the Afrikaner nation".
Buchan further states:
"Everybody is welcome as always to our meetings but this time the emphasis will be on the Afrikaner nation, we are going to call out to God remembering that only two nations in the world have ever been in covenant with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They are the Jewish people and the Afrikaans people, that is fact.

Well done Angus, way to push a stereotype and further divisive rhetoric!

EFF also scoring some own goals in their response to this by saying someone should blow up the stadium.

Job well done Angus! Sow the seeds of divisiveness you fool.

is it because jews were forced to wear yellow badges and afrikaners were forced to issue dompas?

Good on him for apologizing. Obviously the new testament covenant is applicable to all Christians.

Afrikaners have the extra burden of geloftedag though.

Except that that's not what he meant when he said "been in covenant with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.", God has limited himself to one Testament at a time but not one Covenant at a time, one must not confuse the two concepts.

How does that work? Angus isn't Afrikaans himself. He's English, born in Zim and started out farming in Zambia.

Thats the funny thing, the heading and starting paragraph twists what he said and then they quote him verbatim as if the two narratives are the same.
Read it again and the two narratives seem the same to me and paint Angus as the retard that he is...

Oh yes, the two Testaments are not actually covenants, they are two different ways/periods in which God interacts with humanity, each period has covenants thpugh the Abrahamic one and Noahide one is the only ones mentioned in the OT that was in effect concurrently.
