Jesus says to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, strength and mind and to love our neighbors as ourselves, (see Deut. 6:4-6; Matt 22:37-41; Mark 12: 29-31, Luke 10:27).
Yet I am actually appalled that some Christians and some denominations are very active and in an uproar against abortion and same sex “marriage” BUT are silent about that demonic spirit of racism in our nation. They don’t seem to understand that this demonic spirit is a massive force to whose goal is to destroy the American experiment.
I have heard the excuses from some leading pastors that racism is a social matter and Jesus was not a social reformer. Others try to excuse the perpetrators saying that no one is perfect or “let’s pray for them” However you cannot have real social changes unless there is real change in the heart. It’s only Christ who can create a new heart.
The fight against racism by the church cannot be left to the “black church” and a few “white churches”. It’s sad that we still have to say “Black Chuch” and “White Church” in 2018 and maybe we should eliminate these terms from our conversation. I am speaking to the Body of Christ and not to the secular society. The church must stand as one body against this evil. When are we going to learn the lessons of Dr Martin Luther King?
The bottom line is Christians MUST stand against all sin. Jesus wept because He loved Lazarus who died and He is probably weeping because we Christians can’t be consistent about His Word.
