Watching some of mankind has brought me to a place of sadness and alarm.
White privilege and Get Out.
Before we sign up for the course or pay the ticket price would we not do well to consider the motivation of the originators and the promoters?
Is it not obvious the makers of Get Out are primed for money? And White Privilege courses? Why? What’s the motive? Education? Really?
So, let me ask. Do either of these projects promote harmony? My perusal of Facebook and some other internet venues shouts NO.
Born brown, yellow, red?
Not a one of us got to choose our birth parents, our birthplace, our skin color, and a myriad of other birth factors. So why are we warring over it? Really. Why?
There is One who did choose.
That’s right. GOD chose our skin color and the whole kit and caboodle regarding our birth factors. So, since GOD chose why are we fighting about it or against it?
Let me pitch this out to you: Racism is stemmed in disagreement. Disagreement WITH GOD.
May I tell you what I have experienced? Every soul I meet and converse with for more than a minute or two that are filled with and walking according to the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD, we are instant friends. Racism does not live and thrive in the Spirit filled Body of CHRIST.
Whatever our skin color, whatever each of our birth factors are those factors are the VERY BEST suited factors for us. They were suited to us individually by GOD to abundantly equip us to do the life He put us on this earth to do. AND GOD DOES NOT MAKE MISTAKES. (Psalm 139)
He loves each of us; all our varied colors are beautiful to Him and at the very least we are foolish to think otherwise.
And the sooner we believe this and live accordingly the sooner racism dies. This is my plea. Stop buying into this madness. Reject white privilege punctuated with hate, refuse to fuel Get Out and every other movement that pits us against each other. Stop posting, stop saying, stop doing stuff that fuels unbelief and hatred. Be a part of the solution – offer LIFE in CHRIST JESUS with words and deeds. Racism originated in hell – refuse to go there.
Matthew 12:36 (KJV) 36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. source
What if He means EVERY word we SAY by voice, by pen or a click of the mouse?
