Morning thoughts from Pastor Tim
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
I’m discovering just how racist many people really are and I am shocked.
The first black man is going to be the President of the United States and I don’t believe that white folks are going to be able to handle it.
I am constantly receiving email of a racial tone.
One person sent the new $1 bill that’s just literally blacked-out on the picture with nothing but the eyes showing.
Is that racist?
Another shows Air Force One with “pimped out” or the presidential limousine with spinning hubcaps.
Everyday it is something new and I receive this from my white, Christian friends.
Now I’m from the south and I know there is a streak of racism in me but I really try hard to subdue it through the Holy Spirit.
I’ve always had respect for those of other races.
In the sixth grade I was made class president and it was the black vote that carried me. In fact, every black boy and girl voted for me because I was their friend.
I use to get up and sing Negro spirituals with all of them.
In college I roomed with two Iranians and was friends with many more.
Even Iranians that I had not met knew I was Tim because I was a friend to so many.
God talked about race, including yours!
The LORD looks down from heaven on the entire human race; he looks to see if there is even one with real understanding, one who seeks for God.
But no, all have turned away from God; all have become corrupt. No one does good, not even one! Ps 14:2-3
Haman was a racist and ended up dying on his own gallows. (Esther 7)
God is NOT racist; just the opposite.
Jesus, a Jew, died for those of African descent, Middle-eastern, Asian, Polynesian, Slavic, Hispanic, and even Anglo’s.
God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Rom 5:8
So if you are reading this and receive a racist email, instead of passing it along why don’t you pass this one back to the one that sent you the other!
