Racism is a system of oppression, one that creates a society of first- and second-class citizens by denying rights and access to resources to non-white people. Racism is a system of power created by and maintained through public policy. Racist rhetoric or action is anything that reinforces/upholds that system. So until the day comes when the US government enacts laws aimed specifically and purposefully at ensuring that white people are shut out of education/healthcare/jobs/housing and shuttled into prison and poverty, I don’t want to hear any more about the growing discrimination against white Americans. It is nonexistent.

Historically, to the very present the church has always followed the culture at large. For many the system works fine. The system works best when we continue along with it.
I understand the Bible requires that we love God, our neighbor, and even our enemies, but these are just suggestions. I understand we talk about Jesus, but you must understand this is a formality. Do not change the system. Do not expect me to be Christ like. This cross on my chest and the bumper sticker on my car are just idols that mean nothing. “Come on! You see my action right?”
Happy Most Segragated Day of the Week!
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.” “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Matthew 7:13-14).
‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’ (Luke 10:27)
How will I know I am keeping Luke 10:27?
Your Facebook posts will change. You will be more concerned with souls then foolishness. More posts about Christ and less about worldly accomplishments. You will notice the atmosphere around you changes. People of all races will quickly open up to you, because they will see Jesus and not pride and arrogance.
Satanist will recognize and hate you and you will recognize them.
Your messages will be useful. You will put away intellectual messages that serve egos rather than Godly edifying.
You will love the brethren (Christians) not just your own color.
Paul loved so much that he was willing to throw his soul into hell for his people, is your pastor this willing? Then why are you following him?
