We can’t change the past, nor can we live in it. Racism still exist where we perpetuate it – it’s taught to our children, used as a political tool, and is an excuse to blame shift for irresponsibility. Race and culture are not the same. Race is no more than a category box meant to support an evil narrative – a narrative used today to scare people into submission injected with guilt.
Let me tell you something, it’s a narrative I choose not to accept. Those of you who know me, past and present, know that I couldn’t care less about the amount of melanin you have in your body. I took a lot of heat for that in my youth and over the years, but I didn’t participate in the foolishness then and won’t do it now – nor will my family!
According to the Word; “For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free man, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:26-28)
We were all one in the beginning but we lost our way. Jesus Christ, the only one worthy – paid the price of all sin, secured our way back to be one through His death on the cross and resurrection. … “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
All Lives Matter to Jesus Christ – enough said.
Brothers and sisters, the choice is yours – make no mistake about it. Race is literally a category created to separate us. If you choose to allow the race narrative to control your actions rather than living according to the Word – that’s on you. But know that Kingdom living requires us to see each other as Christ sees us – as family with love and compassion.
