I'm Standing With the Christians

Today I was going to post something else, but that can wait. Right now, I want to address something that has been heavy on my heart the past couple of weeks. I hesitate to post something like this, as this blog is meant to be a fun, light-hearted way to express my "Random Thoughts." I don't intend to post stuff like this often. And by that, I mean I don't intend to post stuff like this ever, unless absolutely necessary. However, I do feel like I need to post this. The subject is not a fun one in any way, shape, or form. Racism. Such an ugly, ugly word. A word on the mouths of many Americans today. A word that has the power to induce fear, hate, and suffering. I do not intend to come at this subject with a political view. I intend to come at it with a Christian view. I heard it said that "Christ and racism do not mix. You cannot love Jesus and hate His creation." This is soooo true! Did God make a mistake when creating different colors of skin? And how is the color of skin any different than, say, the color of someone's hair? Romans 2:11 "For there is no partiality with God." Romans 10:12-13 "For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is rich to all who call upon Him. 13 For 'whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.'” (NKJV). There are so many things that are wrong with this world, which is why the Bible says to keep our eyes on Jesus. Yes, racism does have the power to induce fear, hate, and suffering, but Jesus has the power to take away all those feelings. I know I will never understand the pain and fear that must be felt, but I will stand with the Christians across America, sharing the love and peace of my Savior, Jesus Christ.

  2. I totally agree Caleigh! Everyone is a child of God and need to be created equal. America needs to find a way to respect people of color, while at the same time, treating them like anyone else.

  3. I heard it once said like this, " Everyone is the same color (brown), it's just that there's different shades of that color".

  5. Well done and so true! All are created equal, no matter their skin color. But it is actions that define a person.
