Racism By Any Other Name Is Still Racism And Should Be Abhorrent To The “Follower” Of Jesus Christ

(Ensure that you read the ENTIRE piece before you make a silly and uneducated comment. I used this article only because I get tired of one party accusing the other as the “racist” party” when what we are experiencing is more sinister than it looks and only when “truth” is exposed will we start to see evil exposed by ALL racists)

It amazes me that seemingly intelligent folk in the Democrat party try to portray that only white folk in the Republican Party are racist.

Now they won’t outright say it but we can tell by watching what they post on social media, the news media itself, and the tone and insinuation that only “white” in the Repub party are racist.

I, being a former Democrat wholly know this to be untrue and that there are racists in ALL political parties to include the black folk that are just as hypocritically racist towards whites and other races.

I only use the article above to show how the enemy uses politics to keep us at each other’s throats yet this also is an opportunity to see the truth that evil is evil and that there are racist white folk, racist black folk, racist “other” folk, racist Republicans, racist Democrats, racist Independents, etc.

The problem is racism and not just from one race to another. I have said repeatedly and repeatedly over the years that racism will never be dealt with by any amount of talking or hypocrisy by either side of a political spectrum but only when people decide to give their racist beliefs, the pain that they have received from racist incidents, the hurt from America’s racist past on ALL of its people, and the unforgiveness that is proliferated and used by the enemy and his minions (the “race” industry hustlers, I.E. the Al Sharpton’s, Jesse Jackson’s of the world in cahoots with the media) over to a Holy God Who will treat ALL of His children equally and teach us through His principles that are clearly laid out in His word as to how we should treat each other.

Be blessed and I leave you with the following scriptures for digestion:

Matthew 7:12: 12 “So whatever you wish that others would do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. (if there is a “racial” incident is it according to this rule wise to accuse ALL or Most people of the offending race blanketly with the offense? We should not be accusing all or most blacks of racism, all or most whites of racism, all or most “other” of racism just because someone who looks like them did something offensive or racist. Martin Luther King envisioned a country where would judge each other by the “content of their character” not the “color of our skin” and the Bible in this verse clearly shares this sentiment. Simply put, the man or woman or group that is proven racist should be the one that are castigated and not everyone who share their color…period!)

Galatians 3:28: 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (This scripture should squelch the whole “racism” thing for “followers” of Jesus Christ yet sadly many who claim His Name and call Him Savior refuse to put down their racial pride for God’s way of doing things. I strive in all things to try to ensure that I treat every person especially a “brother or sister-in-Christ” equally and uniquely as God has made them. If they are racist I don’t condemn their entire family or entire race for their ignorance but I ascribe their actions to them alone or if they are a part of a group and the group condones and will not refute the behavior I THEN hold them accountable just as God hold us accountable when we refuse to acknowledge, ask for forgiveness, and repent of sin).

Here are a few more:

John 7:24: Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.

Romans 10:12: For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek; for the same Lord is Lord of all, bestowing his riches on all who call on him. (If HE has no distinction WE should not have any)

1 John 2:9: Whoever says he is in the light and hates his brother is still in darkness. (It does not say here that you can justify hating others today because of our painful, racist past in this country.)

Genesis 1:27: So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

James 2:9: But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as transgressors. (I see this sin being committed in ALL communities and BTW the very fact that we have Christians that claim to be part of a black, white, Hispanic, or whatever community instead of the CHRISTIAN community which will then allow you not to sin because by following Christ’s principles we will not show partiality thus not sin)

John 13:34: A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. (He didn’t say blacks love blacks, white love blacks, etc., He said love one another!)

Let’s start realizing the truth that there is evil in all sectors of the world and that WE as follower’s of Christ must band together, stop fighting each other, pray for one another, and teach the world how to deal with racism in the proper way…and that is with the love of Christ.

In order to do this we MUST first stop separating ourselves via political affiliations, race, and even via “churches” .

There is no such thing as a “black church”, a “white church”, a “Hispanic church”, etc.,…no my friends there is only ONE church and it is led by One God for ONE people and we because of our love for Christ should be the leaders in race relations instead of an ever-growing, hypocritical cancer that defiles the Name of Jesus Christ by our un-Christ-like, racist, and separatist behavior.

Have a blessed day!!
