Mandela on God

Mandela

 

A great leader, a great man.

Asked if he was a Christian, Nelson Mandela answered,

“The relation between a man and his god is a private matter. . .but, there is no power on earth that compares with religion.”

He acknowledges his respect for religion and then says the greatest thing the missionaries brought to South Africa was “education.”

Asked if he believes in God, Mandela answered,

“That is a private matter, between an individual and his god.”
