How many times has GOD told us not to show prejudice and discrimination? Why do we still do it? The sinful heart is something we were born with but our actions are worldly and our choice to harm others. We try to make excuses like this:
-I’m not a racist, those people just don’t understand us
-Or we can send millions of dollars to other countries to support a war, but we can’t pay for hungry children to have a daily meal
-Or we won’t give homeless people housing
-Or I would vote for him but he is gay
-Or the Bible tells us to hate Jews and other religions
-Or vote for white nationalism
-Or treating a citizen to a different standard for the same crime
-Or killing unarmed people
-Or attacking innocent people
-Or choosing to be a political evangelical following legalism instead of the true Holy Gospel…..I can go on for hours
These are untruths and lies… GOD NEVER told us to do any of those things. HE is the only judge of our sins. Please refrain from this mindset and behavior. Stop justifying sinful ways to display our behavior. HE calls us to stand on HIS absolute truth, not the world’s relative truth. If you’re not sure what that is then pick up a Bible, read the guidelines and GOD’s laws, spend some time in the Great Book. Stop standing for legalism, (dependency on moral worldly law rather than the True Holy Gospel of CHRIST) you can’t serve both, choose HIM today!
James 2:1-92 My brothers and sisters, believers in our glorious Lord Jesus Christ must not show favoritism. 2 Suppose a man comes into your meeting wearing a gold ring and fine clothes, and a poor man in filthy old clothes also comes in. 3 If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, “Here’s a good seat for you,” but say to the poor man, “You stand there” or “Sit on the floor by my feet,” 4 have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts?
5 Listen, my dear brothers and sisters: Has not God chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the world to be rich in faith and to inherit the kingdom he promised those who love him? 6 But you have dishonored the poor. Is it not the rich who are exploiting you? Are they not the ones who are dragging you into court? 7 Are they not the ones who are blaspheming the noble name of him to whom you belong?
8 If you really keep the royal law found in Scripture, “Love your neighbor as yourself,”[a] you are doing right. 9 But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.
End your friendship with the world, it’s the enemy of the LORD and serve HIM today. Christ Jesus our LORD wants all HIS children to be saved and come to know HIS truth, as it will set you free all the time.
Turn away from your old heart and use the new one the LORD provided to you. Stand up against evil ! 1Tim 4:22 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.
Keep your focus on the 3 most important things to follow Jesus Christ; believe in the Cross-the Banner of Blood, forgiveness & repenting, and embrace the Holy Spirit, let the LORD do the rest.
Remember, one with GOD is the Majority!
