CT woman to launch new Christian party

A NEW Christian political party that aims to encourage youth to find God will be launched in Cape Town next month.

ALETTA RIDDLES

ALETTA RIDDLES

The seeds of Nehemiah Liberation Christian Party , under the leadership of Aletta Riddles, were planted when she had a vision about two years ago. Riddles said in the vision, God told her to start her own party to win over the youth of South Africa for Him.
“Our children are vulnerable, the devil is using them to do bad things. They are involved in drugs and all sorts of bad things. When these children are doing bad things we need to ask ourselves who is controlling them,” she said.
She said she had the vision when she was going through a difficult time with her own daughter, who was involved in drugs.
“I asked God what needed to be done. I cried all night and then God reminded me of Nehemiah’s story of how he had reconstructed the walls of Jerusalem. The walls of Jerusalem were falling and that is what’s happening with our youth … ”

“I’ve been sharing with people what God has laid into my heart and people are so excited. They say to me, ‘Aletta this is a party we’ve been waiting for’,” she said.

Ibandla LaseMthini Evangelical Movement pastor Tshepho Machaea said churches needed to unite first before starting up new political parties. “Politicians tend to want to impress other people and I believe we as Christians should go out to the community without being politically affiliated to any party,” he said.

Said Rhema Umtata Christian Church pastor Don Phillips: “If God has given this lady a vision then we cannot deny that. The existing Christian party is like the rest, they only show up when they want votes .” After the launch on May12, Riddles said she would be travelling around the country to share the party’s vision with churches. — poliswap@dispatch.co.za

  1. No offence lady but I’m not quite sure why we should mix religion with politics, particularly right now? Firstly I would think that it’s a total waste of votes, South Africa needs desperate change, our education, service and health are in a shambolic state and secondly if we need to reach out to our children rather work together with schools, community leaders, mayors, ward councillors or whoever. Votes are pretty important right now and luckely we have churches of all denominations etc. Anyway, all the very best with your new party.

    • WE DO NOT MIX RELIGION, ROB
      WE ARE CALL BY GOD TO HEAL THE LAND.
      OUR YOUTH NEED OUR PRAYERS AND OUR HELP.
      LET US HELP THEM
      THANK YOU
      GOD BLESS

  2. There is nothing wrong forming your party. Politics is part of us but we want truth, honesty and transparency. People join politics for their ulterior motives under the banner of God. Our God is a God of truth. He founded this world but we have left, forgotten him, denied him . We need to turn away from our corrupt, depraved, money-loving mentality and seek him with all our minds, soul, spirit and strength. When we die, we ”ll take nothing. So let us be realistic ,responsible and be mindful of where we are going when we die. Let us Make God our first priority in all we do. May God bless you as you venture into that journey and tread carefully, for everything is laid bare before his eyes.

  3. good for you can be the best thing in south africa.

  4. i beliefe that GOD has a great plan for SOUTH AFRICA and i believe it’s
    starting right now. With a new party on it’s way who know what may happen in
    the future every one is just promising new this and new that perhaps a new
    leader with new ideas might just help us in todays age. so lets see what
    may happen as i say GOD has a plan for us as South Africans.

  5. The more Christian parties there are, the better. Eventually the Kingdom of God shall be spread all over. Foe as long as anyone claims Jesus is the King, Let him take over from this satanic ANC. That’s all. Its pity that the devil has taken control of many pastors as well, through greed. and some like Mbethe who supports ANC.

  6. NEHEMIAH LIBERATION CHRISTIAN PARTY STILL GOING VERY STRONG
    PLS.PRAY FOR US.
