Suid Afrika se Poepol van die Week prys word loshande deur Bobby van Jaarsveld gewen. Hierdie aap wat eens op ‘n tyd lekker rondgenaai het is nou bekeer, en hy preek nou vir almal oor hoe om te lewe. Hierdie spook aanbidder glo daar is ‘n duiwel daar buite wat sit en wag om sy naam gat te maak, terwyl hy man alleen sy eie naam oor genoeg gat maak. Lees gerus die kak wat hy nou weer kwyt geraak het. As hy en sy tjommie, die ene Greta Wiid, wat Suid Afrikaanse vrouens ‘n baie slegte naam gee, nie besig is om vir ander te vertel dat hulle nie met enige koekies en totties mag speel teensy hulle getroud is nie, anders gaan hulle eendag in die hel brand, dan is hulle besig om vir mense te vertel dat hulle die heeltyd vir alles moet bid. Wragtag mense, jy kan nie hierdie kak self uitdink nie. Die eerware Dr Jan Grey is baie verlig dat die Poepol van die Week titel nou van sy skouers afgehaal is.
In his newsletter van Jaarsveld explains that he is upset by his appearance on the programme, because he “expressed himself incorrectly” in reaction to questions asked during the interview.
Van Jaarsveld said that he was not ready for the questions.
“The fact is that I have a past of which I am not particularly proud. I was a troublemaker at school and after that. I am not proud of it! It is however, a part of my past and I cannot wish it away. And yes, many of the bad things I did were fun, but definitely wrong,” he wrote.
Van Jaarsveld speaks openly about his passion for his faith and also mentions the influence it has on his life in his newsletter: “I know for sure that if I had known Jesus like I do now and had a personal relationship with Him, I never would have done all those things.”
‘Satan is cunning’
Van Jaarsveld also mentions that his reactions during the interview could be due to the fact that he had forgotten to ask his parents and their prayer groups to pray that the interview must go smoothly.
“When my sisters and I have to do something important we ALWAYS ask our mom Ronel for intercession from her and her prayer group so that everything will go well. On the day of the interview I forgot to ask my mom and her friends to pray for me and the interview. And my mom also forgot. In other words – there was no one praying for me on that day, for that interview. None of us could understand why I spoke the way I did. The lesson we learnt is: Satan is cunning and always on standby. He will use any situation to humiliate a child of God.”
“…I am so sorry about the way I expressed myself on Rian. I can never deny my past. It was there. That’s why I just want to apologise to all of you whom I disappointed,” wrote van Jaarsveld.
