Racism In America

undefined

This was originally a response to a comment about racism in America, but since it got too long and plus I added a testimony, I decided to make it into a post. I care for this brother in Christ and will keep his name from being mentioned. He is a faithful believer and preaches the truth.

[My brother in Christ’s comment] “The Democrats stand for some things that I agree with, and they support some things that I have an issue with. The Republicans stand for things I agree with, and they promote some things that I have an issue with.”

Everyone [Christians or non Christians] who votes for and are in support of the Democratic party are helping to push ungodly policies like abortion that kills the unborn. If that wasn’t bad enough, the doctors give the mother a choice to keep it or kill it after it is born. Another policy is for the spread of homosexuality in public places and schools to teach children that being gay is good. The Democratic party also promotes Islam, which Allah is a false god, and Mohammad is a false prophet. They are against Israel, who by the way, gave us the Bible we enjoy today to hear from the Lord Jesus Christ. They want to bring socialism, which is anti-God and man-centered. That in a nutshell, is what you have voted for.

They [the democratic leaders] pretend to care for Spanish and black people. All they want is our vote. There is zero good in a Democrat [based on and seen in their unbiblical policies]. Their policies are godless. Some might profess faith in God, but their deeds, as I mentioned above, show godlessness.

What does the Bible say about some of the issues that the Democratic party stands for?

21 You must not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD. 22 You must not lie with a man as with a woman; that is an abomination.

-Leviticus 18:21-22, NASB 2020

If you vote Democrat as a Christian, you are voting against the Word of God. A Christian calling himself a Democrat is an oxymoron. Both cancel each other. Either you stand for the Word of God or the culture coming from the god of this age [2 Corinthians 4:4].

[2Timothy 3:5] 5 holding to the form of godliness but denying its power. Avoid these people.

[My brother in Christ’s comment] I typically try to steer clear of politics up here, but I’ve been disgusted by some of the posts I’ve been coming across from other Bloggers, lately, who profess to be “born again” believers. And their comments regarding the issues [of racism] that plague our nation.

Our hope does not lie in either Democrat or Republican, but on Jesus Christ. Blacks, Whites, Asians, Arabs, etc, came from one person, Adam. We are created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). If a Christian who is white hates a black person, he is in sin, or maybe not even saved and the same goes for black people hating white people.

I’m Cuban, born in the States, but Jesus Christ takes the front seat of my life. His Truth, the Word of God, supersedes my race. I don’t care if a Cuban person has a sign that reads, “Cuban lives matters” or from a black person that says, “black lives matter.” Because for you and I my brother, our sign should read, “for Jesus, all lives matter.”

My testimony about going through racism. I grew up in Miami, and I attended an all-black school. There were classes where I was the only white person. The black kids at my school were very racist towards the white kids. They called me “cracker” even though I never called them names. I always had to fight and one time I got jumped by three or four blacks kids, just because I was white. After becoming a Christian, I got jumped by the black kids, I prayed for them that the Lord might forgive them for what they did to me.

I had very good friends that are black. When I got saved going to that school, I brought my black friend to Christ. My brother in Christ, named Andre who is black, brought me to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. I love that man dearly for sharing the gospel with me.

As Christians, we must love ALL people, White, Black, Asian, Arab, etc. The way to love all people is by telling them the gospel, that Jesus loves them by dying for them on the cross for their sins.

[John 3:16-18 emphasis added] 16 “For God loved the world [ALL races] in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 “For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 “Anyone who believes in him is not condemned, but anyone who does not believe is already condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the one and only Son of God.

  1. Alex,

    There is so much truth here in this post.

    I love this, man.

  2. Thank you for posting this SpaniardVIII. This is needed now more than ever. Like you friend said, “for Jesus, all lives matter” and that is the truth. He cares for everyone and was just as disheartened as we are if we profess to be Christians.

  3. Thanks for your comment, Joshua. In today’s time, we must love not only our neighbors, but those who mistreat us. All races have only one God who created them, Jesus Christ.

  4. I cannot agree w/ your blanket statement that all Democrats are godless. But I do agree w/ your statements about Christians. Whatever our politics, our hope is in Christ. ❤

  5. Let’s put logic to the test. All Democrats are pro-abortion, homosexuality, and the illegal crossing into the United States. So, voting Democrat puts you in agreement with them, right?.

    What does the Bible say about these issues?

    1. The Bible clearly states to obey the law.
    2. God is against the murdering of babies and
    3. condemns homosexuality in the Old and New Testament.

    If you vote Democrat, you are voting against the Word of God. A Christian calling himself a Democrat is oxymoronic. Both cancel each other. Either you stand for the Word of God or the culture coming from the god of this age [2 Corinthians 4:4].

    Thank you for your comment.

  6. SpaniardVIII, My name is Jon Dunning. I have been a follower of Jesus Christ for 30 years now, and like you, my personal Christian convictions have informed my decisions to always vote for Republican leadership…until this year.

    I have been reading Mr. Jeffries’s posts for four years now; And your posts for the past two years. You are both very effective messengers of God’s Word.

    There is no desire, on my part, to debate you, nor do I wish to rehash, at length, what myself and a few of your other readers requested that Mr. Jeffries discuss with you. We realize that we put Jeffries in a difficult position of having to speak on our behalf, but our hope was that if anyone could address our concerns with you, it would be Mr. Jeffries.

    Saying that “All Democrats are evil” is a very strong statement. We humbly ask that you rethink your stance. Take some time to listen to each person’s personal reasons for voting Democrat. Don’t fight with your fellow Christian brothers and sisters Get to know people and their personal convictions.

    My grandparents were Democrats, and served Jesus faithfully until their passings. My sister and her family are Democrats. We tease each other, in good humor, at family gatherings, but they are all saved,, and are not shy about speaking out against sin. They just have their reasons for voting that way.

    I realize that even the most seasoned saint can get caught up in their feelings, after listening to the propaganda from both the Left and the Right. Lord knows, I found my anger rising up during Obama’s last term, and I said some things that I know displeased God. I’m grateful that I had Christian friends to call me out, and help me see that I was heading down a bad road that only Satan would be pleased about.

    Because he is your brother in Christ, Mr. Jeffries was asked to do the same for you, SpaniardVIII.

    In this intense political climate, all of us need to be reminded that We are not Trumpians, We are not Buydinites, We are Christians. Jesus Christ is our King, and nobody will ever vote Him off His throne.

    While it was within the President’s rights to challenge the election results, it is time for him to concede and cooperate with Buydin in a peaceful transition of power. I weep that the man I voted for in 2016, is currently behaving like a spoiled toddler. His current behavior is damaging to the credibility of every Christian who preaches humility, compassion, and exercising Godly wisdom, yet they defended Trump against his detractors. It makes me want to vomit that I had to vote for an Independent this year.

    I am speaking on behalf of at least five readers, who are praying that you will retract that strong statement. If you want to hate someone, hate me. If you don’t agree with what We’ve asked Mr. Jeffries to discus with you, what I have said here , and want to rebuke people in a post…feel free to rebuke me.

    My name is Jonathan Dunning. I’ll take the heat for ALL of the people who reached out to Jeffries, and anyone else who just want you to rethink your stance and rephrase that statement.

    Mr. Jeffries thinks very highly of you. He was promised that no further back-and-forth would occur with you, after I said what I desired to say in this comment.

    Please simply respond to this comment with a: Yes, I will take all that Marques Jeffries explained to me this week, under prayer and consideration OR No, Jonathan Dunning you and the other concerned readers are full of baloney

    Either of the responses above will suffice. That will be the end of this matter.

  7. Thank you, Jonathan, for expressing your concerns. Just know that in the future, if you or others have any concerns to stop by and let me know. We are believers in Christ, and I’m willing to take a look at what I said.

    Also, let the other folks know to drop in a comment so I can say, “thank you for reading my blog.”

    Thank you, Jonathan, for being a reader, and I pray that you may continue in the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, holding on to the truth of God’s Word.

  8. I would like to thank you, Jonathan for encouraging me to take a closer look and clarify my position. After much thought, I have changed the paragraph in question, and made it that much clearer with additions. That is my final position. All my posts stand on the principle on the Word of God. That is my anchor and hope which keeps me steady.

    I’ll keep reading your writings as often as I can.

  10. If I have lost readers, that’s okay. I’m not in WordPress for popularity reasons, but to bring people to a saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ. To expose darkness and false teachers so that others may not fall into their traps of deception.

    I stand on God’s Word alone. I’m here to exalt Jesus Christ and please Him, not others. I treat others with respect and love, but when those have a problem with what I put on my blog, which is biblically-based. They don’t have a problem with me, but with the truth that convicts the heart.

    I will never sugarcoat the Word of God. Jesus said that He came to bring a sword that will divide. Two will believe, and three will not. Jonathan, if you preach the truth, you will cause divisions and will not be popular.

    Just look at what happened to Jesus. They crucified Him because His Word was piercing and convicting. If the world hated Jesus, know that the world will hate you as well and try if they can, crucify you, of course, not in a literal manner but in discrediting you.

  11. I think a lot, if not all ‘racism’ is manufactured nowadays or at least the fear associated with it is. I see real human rights abuses in the Middle-East where families are displaced from their own homes and the silence in the West remains deafening.
    In the US, the recent flare-ups have benefitted a certain community, but not the blacks, whites, Asians or Latinos etc. Fearmongering has spread like a virus about a virus, it used to be terrorism, then racism, then coronavirus.. Why? Well, the financial system is broken.
    In 2007 the media with whatever little decency they had left told us the system was broken and we would have to bailout those that broke it (and they also benefitted from breaking it).
    In 2020, the media were lobbied and usurped by the very same ‘elites’ that laughed all the way to the banks in 2007.
    What are the signals that prove this? Look at the level of censorship across the media and social media, it’s off the scale. When these pro-abortionists run the clinics selling baby body parts, when we see in broad daylight that the stock market is rigged or when getting a good score in a mathematics test is now deemed racist, you know something is very very wrong and any divisions that were hardly there before but then suddenly jump out of nowhere are only benefitting the same usual very tiny wealthy bunch of psychopaths (who are actually the real racists) and they, with the help of their compliant media friends will raise the temperature to whatever suits them. They are a law unto themselves. Fear is their weapon and currency of control, but it is our faith in God that will protect us.

  12. I agree with what you have said here. Look at BLM for example, they sound good with their message but what is behind them? Witchcraft. They are into spiritualism, worshiping a goddess. And, instead of bringing all races together, they do the opposite, you see the hatred of white people. That group BLM is demonic, but that is no surprise as Matthew 24 says that nation will be against nation. The Greek word for nation is ethnicity or race. Now you see that it is race against race.

    We are living in the end times for sure. As Christians, we need to be in the Word of God and prayer. We have to love people by telling them the truth of the gospel before Jesus comes back.
