Prayer And Forgiveness Is The Key To Defeating Racism

Many people in their “racial ” blindness seem to forget that Dr. King and the many other Civil Right’s leaders fought for EVERYONE’S right for justice as they think that justice is ONLY for THEIR “race” especially if their “race” has been wronged in any historical setting.

To ignore justice for all and justice only for some is un-Godly and is a skillful trick of the enemy that as we can see by the various posts on social media (even by “Christians” no less) is proliferated daily under the guise of justice and “payback” for the past.

How is this of God?

I can tell you that it isn’t and never will be because God teaches us to forgive in the same manner that He has forgiven us yet this society teaches us and thus we often follow IT’s rules of badgering, not-forgiving, hating, and even persecuting the ones who have wronged us instead of forgiving.

This should be expected from those in the world but the “Christian” should be constantly growing more and more everyday via God’s Holy Spirit towards more and even more forgiveness for those who wrong and have wronged us so that as His light shines through us it will envelope and surround the dark heart of those who satan is using to try to pull us into his darkness away from God’s beautiful and life-giving light.

Sadly, from what I see on social media and in the “streets” his game (even among “Christians”) is on point because of the lack of forgiveness that we show each other on a daily basis.

THIS is what Dr. King and many others fought for as they fought for equality for all and not this perverted version of the Civil Right’s movement that we currently see going on in today’s world.

Thank you Dr. King for being an inspiration for this once little, and as the famous Stevie Wonder song says “nappy-headed” boy from East Texas.

God allowed you to teach and I still in me to pray for those that dislike me and to NOT return hate for hate and even though it took me years to implement these lessons in my life I nonetheless am thankful that He used you to correct my heart away from a life filled with un-forgiveness into a life filled with forgiveness and God’s great unmeasurable, and unmerited grace and love.

P.S:  I had to add this:

In response to my post with the Dr. King photo on dealing with racism a brother Tony Griffin gave me a Holy Spirit-filled nugget that I simply had to share. I had never looked at the evil that racism is and our often human instead of Christ-filled response to it:

Comment: “I think back to the garden of Eden when God asked, “Who told you that you were naked”? Same goes today, who told you that you were white? Who told you that you were black? It’s the same deceiver that was in the garden and he instigates and whispers all the lies that keep this issue going. Love wins. Love is greater. Jesus is Love.”
