The Christian and Racism

A lot has been said about racism recently. Some accuse those who demonstrate against certain government issues of being racist. One of our former presidents recently played the race card. News broadcast help spread the racism issue.

Are there still racist in our nation? I suspect there are. Did it exist in the past in all walks of life? Certainly. Does racism involve all races of people? Yep. Can a person be a christian and a racist? That is the subject we want to explore. 

Since Accuracy In Religion accepts only the bible as the final word on any religious matter, notice some scriptures.

“Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him;” “And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him;” “But he that doeth wrong shall receive for the wrong which he hath done: and there is no respect of persons;” “And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear”  “For there is no respect of persons with God.” (Acts 10: 34, 35; Eph. 6: 9; Col. 3: 25; I Pet. 1: 17; Rom. 2:11). We can see that God shows no favoritism. All nations are His creation. Nor does he allow his children to show respect to individuals (James 2). Notice James says “If you show partiality, you commit sin”.

The bible plainly shows that a Christian cannot be partial, whether in race, social statis, government position or in any other way.

The other question we ask is, can a christian express agreement or disagreement on some fact or subject without being a racist. Again, look at the bible. The apostle Paul expressed truth about the idols in Athens (Acts 17:16-34), Peter and John expressed disagreement with the Jewish rulers upon being told to quit speaking in Jesus name (Acts 4). Other examples could be sited, but these will suffice.

For any man to level charges of racism, without factual knowledge of the other persons mind is sinful in itself (Titus 3:2). Also, trying to deceive others into believing an untruth about another is sin within itself (James 4:8). Many honest people agree or disagree on various subjects without race entering the picture. 

It is time for honesty in our nation. People need to be honest in all things. It may seem like to much to ask since many “seek their own” as Paul said, but we need to strive for that characteristic. Stop the lies, false charges, self serving, and “speak every man truth with his neigbor”. Christians cannot be racist and be right before God, but neither can any other man. However, speaking truth, seeking honest answers, standing against deceit and lies, and seeking a host of othe good things, as described in the bible, have nothing to do with race, or ethnic background. THEY ARE ASKING FOR MAN TO DEAL WITH MAN AS GOD EXPECTS HIM TO DO.

Home School Fight

“The latest of many examples of government arrogance has come in New Hampshire, of all places, where the state motto is ‘Live Free or Die.’ A state judge has ordered a girl who was being educated at home by her mother to begin attending a public school because of the ‘rigidity’ of her mother’s religious views. The judge, Lucinda V. Sadler, said that the 10-year-old girl needed to consider other worldviews as she matures. … There are a number of issues in this case, not the least of which is the court’s attempt to define what represents an ‘extreme’ religious view and what is more ‘mainstream.’ A growing number of parents, including some in my family, home-school their children. My personal experience is that these kids get a better education, are better adjusted and easily gain entry into college because of their superior grades and seriousness of purpose, not to mention their character. Another issue is the apparent one-way street constructed by Judge Sadler. If a Christian girl ought to go to public school to learn about other views (this presumes she does not know about them through study at home, reading a newspaper or turning on the television), why shouldn’t the judge order a public school student to get a Christian-Jewish-Islamic-based education so that such a student might become acquainted with the Bible-Talmud-Koran? … Amanda’s mother retained the Alliance Defense Fund, the conservative legal alliance that works to defend religious liberty, but meanwhile, the girl has been forced by the court to sit in a fifth-grade classroom, which is a violation of her and her mother’s consciences and the First Amendment. … I’m on the side of the people. The New Hampshire judge and the Obama administration are on the side of the elites. And that’s why so many are justifiably angry.” –columnist Cal Thomas

Christians will eventually have to learn to fight against those who would take away from them their God given rights and responsibility. The scriptures give Fathers the obligation of “raising their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord” (Ephesians 6). So far the courts have taken away much of where the bible can be taught, prayers said, where and what can be posted and now they want to tell us how, and what  to teach our children. When will we say ENOUGH?

HOORAY, HOORAY, HOORAY for Andy Rooney.

HELLO FOLKS:  This is also true in CANADA

 
HOORAY,  HOORAY, HOORAY for Andy Rooney. I myself have been grumbling and wondering how a handful of people have been able to take our right to pray in public places away from us. So, agreeing with Andy, I GLADLY will forward this email AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN.


Folks, this is the Month that we RE-TAKE AMERICA
********* Get  Ready *********


Keep this going around the  globe . Read it and forward every time you receive it. We  can’t give up on this issue.

Andy Rooney and  Prayer

Andy Rooney says:

I don’t believe in Santa  Claus, but I’m not going to sue somebody for singing a  Ho-Ho-Ho song in December.  I don’t agree with Darwin , but I didn’t go out and hire a lawyer when my high school  teacher taught his Theory of Evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not  be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game. So what’s the big deal?  It’s not like somebody is up there reading the entire Book of Acts.  They’re just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.

But it’s a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America , a country founded on Christian principles.  According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1.  So what would  you expect — somebody chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game in Jerusalem , I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer…

If I went to a soccer game in  Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match in China , I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.

And I wouldn’t be  offended.
  It wouldn’t bother me one bit.

When in Rome   …..

But what about the atheists? Is another argument.

What about them? Nobody  is asking them to be baptized.  We’re not going to pass the collection plate.  Just humor us for 30 seconds.   If that’s asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs.  Go to the bathroom.  Visit the concession stand.  Call your lawyer!

Unfortunately, one or two will make that call.  One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do.. I don’t think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world’s foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights.  Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating, to pray before we go to sleep.  Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing.  Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.

The  silent majority has been silent too long.  It’s time we tell that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn’t care what they want.  It is time that the majority
Rules!   It’s time we tell them, you don’t have to pray; you don’t have to say the Pledge of Allegiance; you don’t have to believe in God or attend services that honor Him.  That is your right, and we will honor your right; but by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away.  We are fighting back, and we WILL WIN!

God bless us one and all …  Especially those who denounce Him , God  bless America , despite all her faults.  She is still the greatest nation of all. God bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.


Let’s make 2009
the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions. And our military forces come home from all the wars.

Keep looking  up.

If you agree with this,  please pass it on.
If not delete  it..

 

 


 
   

California’s proposed textbooks would advance homosexual teaching in public schools

Here we go again! Parents when are you going to stand up, and say enough? Why is it that righteousness is always under attack in our country?  Does anyone think it is necessary to subject children to this propaganda, and that is what it is? 

This is not just a lifestyle as we are being told. It is now, and always has been sin. God is not pleased with man with man, or woman with woman. (Rom. 1: 18-32) Those who practice, and encourage it can expect eternal punishment, according to the scriptures. (I Cor. 6:9, 10) . Our government is justifying it by passing many supporting laws. Now our school systems are being encouraged to teach very young children things that should never be part of any text . Shades of Sodom and Gormorrah!                                                     

California’s school children, as young as kindergarten, would be required to learn about the contributions of gays, lesbians and the transgendered to American society as part of a bill pending before the state Senate.

“It’s an attack on our family and morals of our nation and so many children are falling for it,” said Orlean Koehle, a substitute teacher at Santa Rosa School District, north of San Francisco.

Koehl, the state president of the Eagle Forum of California, has closely monitored curriculum content in public schools after making national headlines several years ago by challenging a pro-gay assembly at one of the schools in her district.

“They had kept this assembly hush-hush and so none of the parents knew what was going on,” Koehle said.

In that instance, parents eventually prevailed in getting Santa Rosa officials to enact a policy that maintained parental rights over controversial content, the substitute teacher said. Now, Koehle and thousands of other pro-family advocates statewide are concerned that local policy such as that created by Santa Rosa, will be squelched with the passage of SB 1437, which some have warned will turn schools into sexual indoctrination centers.

“Everything is going to go up in the air,” Koehle said. “Everything we’ve worked so hard for could go away.”

Cathy Gibson, the San Diego area director for Concerned Women for America, agreed.

“This is really waking people up,” said

The law, said opponents, would also create a biased approached to homosexuality by prohibiting any textbooks, instructional materials or teaching content that would “adversely affect persons because of their gender—either real or perceived—or sexual orientation,” Ron Prentice, executive director of California Family Council, told CitizenLink.
