Ring of truth in #mugabe’s verbal attack on the UK

via Ring of truth in Mugabe’s verbal attack on the UK | Derby Telegraph April 29, 2014 by Ken Moreton

DESPOTIC dictator Robert Mugabe claims Britain has gone to the dogs because of its loss of values.

Coming from a vile and corrupt leader, this country is likely to dismiss what he says as the rantings of a mad man. But is there a small ring of truth in his words?

The morals and values once claimed by this country came from people of high standing, some now seen as sex abusers and liars, greedy and corrupt.

We valued highly a national press, but can we still, now it is tainted by a phone-hacking scandal?

Can we value what we read is the truth? Can we ever again value and trust a police force, once seen to be the best in the world, when some officers are found to be racist, corrupt and liars?

Can we value a justice system that treats hardened criminals with kid gloves, paying more heed to their human right more than those of their victims?

One yob, aged 15, was sentenced to 12 years for supplying a gun that killed an 11-year-old boy and has now been released after five years on licence. There’s no valued justice there.

British people will say we’ll take no lessons from Mugabe – but what morals and values can they say this country still holds?

    The jury is out on the Morality issue through out the world. Coming from Mugabe who managed the killing of so many and the stripping of human rights of so many is very queer. Before you tell someone his underarms are smelling make sure yours are not.

    Like the saying goes, “if you point a finger at someone, remember, there are three pointing back at you”.

    Oh and so bob is so moral??? It is okay to murder, plunder, speak hatred, destroy an entire nation, grab what is not yours, torture, have degrees in violence, steal elections, mutilate, oppress and suppress and a whole lot more and then point fingers at the UK as immoral. I agree the UK is going to the dogs but Zimbabwe has already gone to the dogs. And guess who will be held responsible. The man at the top. it is simply despicable.

    Britain might be going to the dogs but our Zimbabwe is already dog meat thanks to the oldest man in Zimbabwe ROBATI. One consolation though history will be told to our youngsters about thise vile man, his clueless wife with a strange sense of fashion and his goons who are not capable of choosing a new leader because they believe they are daft to lead.

    Live In, And By, The Word · Tuesday, April 29th

    Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls (James 1:21).

    The only material given to you to build your life is God’s Word. There’s no hope for anyone who ignores the Word, for the Word of God is life. Proverbs 13:13 says, “Whoso despiseth the word shall be destroyed: but he that feareth the commandment shall be rewarded.” To ignore the Word is to set one’s self up for extreme disadvantage in life.

    Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge….” You need the knowledge of the Word to be effective in life and know all that’s been made available to you in Christ Jesus. Acts 20:32 says, “And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” There’s no other way: the Word of God is the only means through which faith—the Godkind of faith—can be imparted to your spirit.

    Every Christian must open his heart to hear and receive the Word. Our opening verse admonishes that we “…receive with meekness the engrafted word….” Those who ignore the Word have their joy short- lived. If you ever find yourself unhappy, unfulfilled or disoriented, stay in the Word; interpret and respond to situations on the basis of God’s Word. Have a rapacious appetite for the Word, and apply it to your personal life. Always, make adjustments in your life in line with the counsel and wisdom you receive from the Word.

    The Word is for you to live by; we’re Word practitioners; we do what the Word says. That’s the way to experience the blessing of the Word in your life. James 1:22 says, “Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only.” Living in, and by, the truth of God’s Word means you’ve set yourself up for an eternal journey of glory and success.

    My heart is open to receive the engrafted Word with meekness, faith, and gladness. The Word is effectual in me today, producing the fruit of what it talks about, changing me, and ordering the circumstances of life to align with God’s purpose and destiny for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    f u r t h e r s t u d y: Romans 12:2; James 1:25

    : 2 Samuel 4-6 Luke 23:26-49

    : 1 Corinthians 1:10-21 Psalm 139-140

    So well said by all these commentators, I agree entirely with their sentiments. What exactly was Mugabe hoping to accomplish by criticising Britain moral decline? He is still more than happy to accept their aid assistance despite his low opinion of them!

  • comment-avatar

    Yes the UK may have gone to the dogs and this comment by Ken Moreton may be correct, however that he should attribute this to Mugabe is the Pot calling the Kettle Black? Mugabe rants at the UK out of fear alone. It lways has been the immature and ignorant who seem to think “If I shout louder then I am correct”

      …“If I shout louder then I am correct”, I always thought this was the modus operandi of a british tourist or, for that matter, a white man in Africa?

    RGM is a bed-hopping opportunist/criminal/genocidal tyrant. She wants $$$. It’s pretty much de riguer in Africa, the continent of tin-pot dictators who bleed their people and call it liberation. All African leaders have “form”. Let’s have a discussion on the quality/ethics/morality of African leaders. Give me the name of a leader in Africa dedicated to the ideals of democracy with full human rights.

    When Britain is getting aid from Zimbabwe, then Mugabe can criticise.
