Born To Win

Greg Kriek, a rising star and talented South African actor, is making waves in the film industry. He makes his debut in his first feature film playing the lead role in the movie, ‘Born to Win’, based on the true story of Leon Terblanche, a teacher at a school for the physically disabled.
We caught up with Greg to discuss this film by Christian director of Faith Like Potatoes, Frans Cronjé.

Q. Greg, what enticed you to play the role of Leon in Born To Win?
A. The amazing thing is that the role of Leon found me, and not the other way around. I was supposed to have a casual coffee with Frans Cronjé (Director) and Cobus van den Berg (Producer) the day I heard about the movie, but somehow that ‘coffee’ turned into an impromptu audition. Well, the rest is history! God had set up circumstances in such a way that I got the part.
Beyond that, there were many areas of Leon’s life that I relate to on a very personal level. I was excited that I would be able to turn hardships from my own life into something that had the potential to touch others.

Q. One of the scenes in the movie, where Leon is shouting out to God, looked very emotional. What was it like acting that scene?
A. I’ve never experienced anything on a movie set before like I did when we filmed that particular scene. Initially the script only had three lines. That particular morning, Frans came to me and said I mustn’t be bound by the lines, but do whatever feels right.
While the crew was setting up, Leon, Frans and I prayed about the importance of the scene and for God’s will to be done. I took some time reflecting on the ‘rock bottom’ moments I’ve had in my life, moments where my mask came off and I couldn’t help but honestly lash out at Him – a ‘wrestling with God’ moment where there was no sign of hope and Christ seemed distant.
As I walked onto set there was a peace that came over me and I just let it rip from the heart – raw, naked and uncensored. You could hear a pin drop, as everyone on set was shocked into silence. Once the scene had played out, most of the crew were in tears. It had struck a chord so deep, because so many people have been in that place! There is no doubt that that scene was inspired by God!

Q. What did you personally take away from this debut experience?
A. I came out of ‘Born to Win’ a different man than I what I was going into the film. Beyond the fact that this was my first feature film, playing the lead role, I underwent so much personal, emotional and spiritual growth that it will always be remembered as a turning point in my life.
The movie left me no choice but to reflect on my own life on a level that I’ve never delved into before. Up until that point, even though I knew God, I was still riddled with self-doubt and wrestled with a lot of unanswered questions.
It is safe to say that before we started filming, the words ‘Born to Win’ were merely words of a movie title to me, but in the end turned out becoming God’s message to me. I learnt that even I was ‘Born To Win’.

Q. Why should one watch the film?
A. This is not your typical film. There’s something tangibly real and honest which so many people have been waiting to experience on the big screen. No matter who you are, or where you are from, all of us have a real story to tell. Even when we try to run, ‘life happens’ to everyone.
Whether you know God or not, the hard knocks of life hit us all. The question is what do we do when we’ve done everything we can and it all bottoms out?
‘Born to Win’ is not a film that bashes one over the head, or tells one what to do, or where one falls short. Instead it tells it as it is and is entertainingly jam packed with a raw and unmasked look at real life. This is a true story not just of one man, but when you watch it, you realise it’s also your story. I have no doubt that every person will be affected deeply by this film and still enjoy many laughs. This movie needed to be made because we all need to be reminded that we weren’t born to lose. We were ‘Born To Win’.

Q. Do you have any advice for aspiring Christian actors?
A. First, look yourself in the mirror and truly answer why you want to be in the industry. Is it for the so-called ‘glitz and glamour’, or do you know that this is what you were born to do? Once you know that, you have a part to play in God’s Media Army. Look to Him first and foremost for guidance, instruction, creativity and favour. He will handpick your parts for you.
That being said, as much as Olympic athletes hone their craft every day, what excuses you? If you want to act, then act! Do it unto Him and work hard as a form of worship. Learn. Grow. Play. Don’t give up. Don’t be afraid to fail. You control your attitude. Also, don’t be too proud to ask for advice and surround yourself with a network of industry professionals and friends that you can journey with.
Don’t be intimidated or jealous of others. The Lord has a unique journey for all of us. Don’t be a copy of someone else, just be the real you. Don’t settle for anything less than His best for you.

The real story of faith
Leon and Elmarie Terblanche, the real people of this story, currently reside in Sedgefield in the South Western Cape. They are in full-time ministry and pastor the Suid-Kaap Christen Familie Church. They have one daughter, Briggitte, who is married to Juan and two beautiful grandchildren.
This is what they had to say about ‘Born to Win’…

Q. What has it been like to see your life story being filmed and put on the big screen?
Leon: During the period 1996 to 2010, it was prophesied over me four times that I must write a book. God’s Spirit moved in me, and prompted me to start writing! This book was a preparation and conception ground for the ‘Born to Win’ movie. Whilst writing the book, God removed all callouses of poor self-image, rigidity and negative thoughts from my life. Once removed, He took the red cloth of Calvary and wiped my heart clean! I was then ready to see the book come to life on the big screen. 
Each scene I observed on set was monumental. I had to repeatedly remind myself of the verse in the Bible, Ephesians 3:20: “God is able to do super abundantly far more and above all that we dare ask or think beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams.”
I have to be brutally honest and admit that during some days of filming, it felt like my heart was being ripped out of my chest, shredded with blunt scissors, and then trampled upon. That’s how much it hurt! Some nights I cried myself to sleep, because here in front of my eyes, whilst cast and crew were busy with their day jobs, my life was being exposed. These were all emotions, as cast and crew alike were tremendous in their support. 
During numerous discussions, Elmarie and I came to the realisation that this was no longer about us. This was now a tool God was using to give the world hope! During this time, God kept his promise of never leaving or failing those that love Him. 

Elmarie: On numerous occasions I heard people say that in the face of danger, they see their life play off like a film in their mind. This was precisely how it felt going through the production process. We saw how our decisions caused the decline in our lives and relationships which put us on a path of self-destruction, all until we grabbed hold of God’s gift of mercy, extended to us all.
Q. What would you like people to take away from the film once they have seen it?
Leon: ‘Born to Win’ is about overcoming obstacles and not about defeat. It’s all about hope. ‘Born to Win’ reflects our Living God. The world is in desperate need of hope. “We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline.” Heb 6:18 (The Message).
Hope gives you stamina, endurance and makes you feel strong and healthy. You are charged with a new breath of life. Hope declares: “I am permeated and polished by His powerful anointing oil”. All of us, without exception, get hurt. We get beaten up in this life. This pain causes us to wrap ourselves in a kind of pain wrapping to protect ourselves from more hurt.
It is only when you truly surrender to God and allow Him to change you that the pain begins to drop off from you; it is then that we become the winners that we were born to be. I don’t ask God where He is anymore. I know that He is here. How can I not know it? God has made each one of us, even those with the worst physical disabilities, to be winners. We just need to discover what His purpose is for us and never let go of hope.
Elmarie: I would like people to watch this film and realise the fatherly love of our God and the importance of family values. Parents need to create a safe home and haven for their children whilst growing up. Children are a precious gift from God and He expects us to raise them in His love, protection and ways.

Q. What has changed the most since you have both let the Lord guide your lives?
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come the old has gone, the new is here.” 2 Cor 5:17. Thus, we’re in agreement that we are indeed new creations. We have grown spiritually, reaching a place where we’re focussed on eternal value, and Jesus is our reason for existence.

More about the film…
‘Born to Win’ was produced by Cobus van den Berg, the producer of Klein Karoo, and directed by Frans Cronjé, who produced Faith Like Potatoes and Hansie.
This dynamic team managed to stretch the R4 million budget to look bigger than many R10 to R20 million productions. The quality of the cast is one of the strong points of the movie. Playing the lead role as Elmarie Terblanche alongside Greg is Leoné Pienaar, a talented actress who also acted in Baroudeur.
Other cast members include Nadia Beukes, Merlin Balie, Garth Collins and Cobus Venter, some of South Africa’s best loved actors, and they will certainly get you laughing. Award-winning actors and actresses, such as Sylvia Mdunyelwa-Kobus, Dorette Potgieter, Anrich Herbst, Tim Theron and Leandie du Randt are also among the main cast.
With the cinematography skills of Jorrie van der Walt, the film has a classic and solid look to it. Filmed along the stunning Garden Route, this proved the perfect location, as the movie covers three decades – the 1970s, 1980s and 2000s. The city council and mayor of George gave tremendous support to make the film possible.

Inspiring others with a message of hope and the Gospel
Frans and Cobus believe that the cast and crew have put together not only a work of art, but a ministry tool that represents a true story about real people that will inspire and change lives all over the world.
Don’t miss it!
‘Born to Win’ has been released in cinemas on the 15th of August throughout South
Africa. It will be released worldwide during the first quarter of 2015. We highly recommend that you take as many friends as possible to watch it in cinema.
Please pray for those who watch Born To Win – that God will open their hearts and they will listen to His voice, realising that they too were born to win! See and for details. 

All for the glory of God

It seems like yesterday that Christian Family Church was celebrating 30 years of Ministry and now it has reached a new milestone of 35 years.
Drs Theo and Beverley Wolmarans, Founders and Senior Pastors, have dutifully been obedient to the Lord since being called of God to plant a church way back in 1979. They have given their lives to serving God’s people and growing this phenomenal ministry. There have been many obstacles along the way, but together they have faced each and every challenge with faith and in the strength of the Lord. Working side by side through the years has only made them stronger as a couple and as true Ambassadors for Jesus.
In the early days, this then young couple embarked on a journey which, in their wildest dreams, they could never have imagined being so challenging. Moving from the relative peace and calm of Durban, to the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg and subsequently on to the city of San Antonio in the state of Texas in obedience to the Lord’s call, theirs has been a journey of much trial and tribulation. But it has also been a journey of love and joy as they have seen God at work in bringing about His vision through their lives. They have been responsible for establishing over 350 churches worldwide, as well as 29 Bible Colleges with more than 3 300 students attending annually and are much sought after speakers.
Their very first church service was held in a small hall in Bedfordview with a congregation of two people. Pastor Theo preached and Ps. Bev led the praise and worship and was the catcher, as Ps Theo prayed for the sick. The growth was phenomenal and in a few short years they had over 8 000 adults and children attending the services. The anointing of God was clearly evident in their lives and drew people from far and wide. In 2007, a beautiful new church was built on Atlas Road, close to the Johannesburg International Airport, complete with a 3 500 seat Auditorium, fully accredited Bible College, beautiful children’s facilities with well-equipped play areas, and an indoor Fellowship Mall with restaurants, bookstore and many other amenities. Today this facility is already too small and plans are underway for an expansion programme.
Young people are encouraged to attend Friday evening meetings dedicated to the Youth where there is good Christian music and lots of fun activities. A special program titled “Synergy” has been developed to encourage and motivate young people into the future that God has for them.
Highly professional musicians and singers lead the Sunday Praise and Worship, creating an atmosphere of love, blessing and freedom in the Lord. SAMA and Crown Gospel award winners, The Plain Truth are the resident evening band. They are truly anointed and have been hailed by many guest speakers from around the world as one of the best they have heard.
Dr. Theo is a strong leader for whom the Word of God is the ultimate authority. Every message he prepares and every decision he makes is based on biblical truths. He is a man who spends much time in prayer, seeking the Lord to ensure he hears the Voice of God and is following what God would have him do.
Under the leadership of Drs Theo and Beverley, Christian Family Church has flourished and is a training ground for many of those either in Ministry or being called into Ministry. The 3 year accredited Bible College has hundreds of students being prepared to take the Word to the world, with all the necessary skills needed to do just that. Dr. Theo does not ordain or send out Pastors without ensuring that they are fully trained according to 2 Tim 2:2 and are proven to adhere to the principles found in 1 Timothy 3:1-6. The Ministry has a statement of faith which clearly outlines the Biblical standards required, not only for the leadership, but also for the members of Christian Family Church worldwide.
Under the leadership of Pastor Bev a Ministry to and for women has been established under the name of Significance. Each year a conference is held where over 1,400 women get together to share a time of upliftment, encouragement and relaxation in an atmosphere of love and unity. A boutique with many beautiful items of clothing, jewellery, bath and body lotions, all specifically designed to give affirmation to ladies as to who they are in Christ, is open at the church premises. Proceeds from the sales of all products are sown into supporting orphans and abused women as this is Ps. Bev’s heart.
The church also operates a Welfare department which looks after over 2,600 people on a monthly basis; providing finances, food, clothing and ministry. Our volunteers go into the highways and byways ministering to both the physical and spiritual needs of men, women and children. Added to this, 7 Children’s homes and 5 Homes for the Aged are supported financially every month. The church has purchased 107 acres of land in the Johannesburg area for the purpose of building an Orphanage to house 1,000 children. The desire is to see homeless children grow in the things of God, with the practical skills to help them to become productive members of society and to be role models to the future generations. It will be fully equipped with the best accommodation and facilities to educate and nurture these little ones.
Drs Theo and Beverley travel to Johannesburg on a regular basis to Minister and attend to Church affairs. Pastor Theo still manages CFCI Johannesburg as he always has and is Chairman of the Board, personally directing the growth of the church in obedience to the Lord’s leading. Major new developments are being planned.

Have You Been Seduced By Sin?

In the early 1970s a well-known psychiatrist, Dr Karl Menninger wrote a book entitled ‘Whatever Became Of Sin?’ He was not writing a Christian book, nor was he himself a committed Christian. He was addressing a worldwide problem, as he saw it.
The word ‘sin’ and what it spoke to and described had virtually disappeared from people’s vocabulary, he argued, and the consequences are devastating. From his experience of dealing with people and their problems, he writes that ‘sin’ may have disappeared from our vocabulary but the sense of guilt remains in our hearts and minds. He called for a return to taking responsibility for, and acknowledging, of sin.
Applauding sin
In an article in The Mail Online, called ‘The Death Of Shame’, Bel Mooney, again not a Christian, wrote of how society trivialises what was once considered wrong and sinful with serious consequences for society as a whole. The background to her article is an advert that makes light of one night stands and despite many objections, was declared harmless by the Advertising Standards Authority in the UK. Confessing her own lack of innocence in years past, she argues that when society loses its sense of shame we are in serious trouble.
The Bible speaks of days when sin will not only be practiced but also applauded. Romans 1 speaks of a coming season when mankind will become foolish in their thinking and their hearts will be so darkened that they cannot even see right from wrong.
“Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” Rom 1:32.
What is sin?
The well-known newspaper USA Today ran an article recently that reported on a survey they had conducted. The article was called, ‘Has The Notion Of Sin Been Lost?’ The survey found that most people in the US still believe in sin. In fact 87% of Americans claim to believe in the existence of sin.
The problem is that ‘sin’ is being re-defined. The survey found that what was once considered ‘sin’ or ‘sinful’ is increasingly accepted as normal and so when people talk about ‘sin’ they are not talking about the same things that have traditionally been considered sinful. It was found that things like gambling, pre-marital sex, cohabiting, same sex relationships, etc, are no longer considered an issue – whereas judging, or speaking out against them, is.
Lack of conviction
The sad thing is that even amongst Christian people this is a growing trend. Secular media and particularly television saturates society with lifestyles and behaviours that at one time would have been considered unacceptable but have now become normal. We are no longer shocked and offended; we see it every day on our screens, in our homes. The passage in Romans has come to pass; “not only do they continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.” [Our culture of celebrity].
The prophet Jeremiah speaks to his situation and it applies very much to our day: “Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct? No, they have no shame at all; they do not even know how to blush.” Jer 6:15.
Does sin matter to you?
Amongst Christians there has been a softening on sin. Even the secular press has noted that the ‘S’ word is out of fashion in many churches. In our striving to be positive, talking about sin is a little embarrassing and uncomfortable. People do not like to be told that sin matters, is destructive and leads to God’s judgement. The old cliché that evil flourishes when good men do nothing holds true. In many situations the Church has gone silent on sin. Tough as it is, it is the duty of the Church, and of Christians, to warn our world that sin matters, even when our world does not want to hear that.
Compromise saddens God
Michael Horton of Westminster Seminary talks about a newspaper headline he once saw, “to hell with sin when being good is enough.” He notes that there has been a drift, a drift away from dealing with sin towards a ‘positive’ Gospel that attracts because of what we can get out of it. We mix happiness with holiness he notes. What matters now is that we are all happy and have all we need. God becomes the means to that end.
Biblically, unless we recognise that sin is a serious problem and apply God’s remedy to that problem, we stand in danger of preaching “another Gospel”. Gal 1:6-9. It is not negative to address a serious problem and to call it what it is. That is the kind and compassionate thing to do. No doctor pretends all is well when a patient’s life is threatened by a serious illness. In a world that is self destructing and where millions are sinking deeper and deeper into sin and all its consequences, the message that sin matters needs to be boldly preached again.
Sin has serious consequences
Today many blame the Bible and blame Christianity for the world’s ills. The call is for all to be nice, to be accepting, not to judge. All behaviour is seen as relative, a personal choice amongst ‘consenting adults’. In fact many argue against any idea of sin and accountability at all. “Just do what makes you happy”, is the mantra.
However as Christians we believe the problems facing our world and the great struggles people have are not the result of addressing sin but of ignoring it and re-defining it. While we know that in the final analysis God will judge sin and all will give an account, in the reality of day-to-day living, sin carries serious consequences.
“We reap what we sow”. We see this every-where: in politics, in society in general and in the day-to-day lives of ordinary people. There is a price to pay for dishonesty. There is a price to pay for immorality. There is a price to pay for ignoring God’s Laws. His Laws are not arbitrary rules because He wants to restrict our fun and happiness but are there to protect and to bring spiritual health and blessing into our lives and into the whole of society.
Confess your sin and God will forgive you, don’t cover it up
David, when grappling with his own sin writes: “Blessed is the one whose transgressions are forgiven, whose sins are covered. Blessed is the one whose sin the Lord does not count against them and in whose spirit is no deceit. When I kept silent, my bones wasted away through my groaning all day long. For day and night Your hand was heavy on me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.
 Then I acknowledged my sin to You and did not cover up my iniquity. I said, ‘I will confess my transgressions to the Lord.’ And You forgave the guilt of my sin.” Ps 32:1-5.
Acknowledge the reality of sin
Our young people need to be taught and reminded that the “wages of sin is death but the gift of God is life eternal,” Rom 6:23. Even secular society is beginning to acknowledge that to live as you please comes with a heavy price tag.
Dr Menninger’s question about what happened to sin came from his career as a psychiatrist and years spent observing and trying to help people. He came to see mental health and moral health as identical. He saw the recognition of the reality of sin as offering hope to an anxious and sick world; hope, not in belated treatment, but in prevention. The Psalmist understood this: “How can a young person stay on the path of purity? By living according to Your Word.” Ps 119:9. 
The answer to our sinful problem is in Christ alone
We need to see sin for what it is: never a little harmless indulgence but a power that enslaves and destroys; a rebellion towards God and His standards. We need to see sin as defined by the Scriptures, with God, and not popular opinion, as its reference point.
There is no true freedom other than the freedom that Jesus gives. He alone is the answer to human sinfulness and all its consequences. He alone is our Saviour. He paid the price that no one else could pay. He brings forgiveness and freedom and gives it as a gift to those who have confessed their sin, are dealing with sin and who live trusting in God’s grace to keep them from sin.
While no one is free from sin we live with the wonderful promise that “if we confess our sin He is faithful and just and will forgive our sin and purify us from all unrighteousness.”
1 John 1:9.
We can re-define and re-label as much as we like but it is only as we deal with sin
Biblically that we will find grace, forgiveness and freedom. 

The use of the word ‘paralysed’ is so important in the above sentence. It indicates the effect that bitterness can have on one’s life, so much so that it affects every part of it. Once it becomes a natural reaction, it can easily infiltrate relationships, work, perceptions and spirituality.

Trust is hard to come by, and once trust is breached, it is very difficult to repair. This is often the core to bitterness. It could be that a person’s trust was broken by another, or even that they no longer trust in God. The disappointment, resentment, frustration, anger, and contempt that comes from this often results in bitterness when we don’t know how to deal with it.

Do as Christ has done for us
When approaching a friend on something that needs correction, it is important to question where your intent lies – make sure that your willingness to help comes from a place of love. It’s difficult to see a friend suffering because they do not actually (practically) know how much God loves them. So much so, that He made the great exchange for them – His Son for our lives.

“Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamour and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you,” Eph 4:31-32. This illustrates how much grace and mercy we have been shown by our Father, that He does not give us what we deserve. That is the greatest act of forgiveness, and it helps to be reminded of this from time to time. It may not come naturally to us, but we need to practice it.

Pruning roots of bitterness
“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control,” Gal 5:22-23. We have the Spirit within us, and therefore, the fruit as well.

When you think about the way in which nature works, trees do not have to labour to bear fruit. Their fruit comes naturally to them once they are mature enough. Our fruit should also come naturally to us – on condition that we are mature. We are a constant work-in-progress, but we have to be progressing none-the-less. We have to keep working on our walk with Christ and assess our maturational process. This includes pruning what is unnecessary, or contradictory, to growth, such as bitterness.

“See to it that no one fails to obtain the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springs up and causes trouble, and by it many become defiled,” Heb 12:15. This illustrates the effect that bitterness can have. The Bible speaks of it as a root, suggesting that bitterness can lay a foundation and root in one’s heart, and grow from there. Before this root anchors itself further, pray and speak with your friend. Often times we do not know what to say to people in need, and it is okay to not always know, because we already have Someone who is omniscient, so we are never alone in difficult situations. Acknowledge this, and be confident in His promise that “He will never leave nor forsake you.” Deut 31:6.

Surrendering all to Christ
Your friend will need you to support them and to challenge their thoughts and ideas (with love). Help them to smooth out unresolved conflicts and offenses. We have a tendency to rationalise and justify why we are bitter, and our explanations make sense! However, just because they make sense doesn’t make it right. This makes it difficult to notice, and different perspectives are always necessary. It does good to be reminded of Romans 8:28, and to know that this is not a promise that everything will feel good, but that all will work for our good. This is where trust is necessary, placing trust in God and surrendering to His will in our lives. This means taking the good, the bad, and the ugly. When we sing “I surrender all”, let it not really mean “I surrender all…almost”. 
