Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans and other races all comprise the United States. Christians are also made up of all races, tribes, tongues and color. On every continent of the world, the name of Christ is lifted up in languages that you have never heard of nor understand. Yet, come Sunday, we are quick to pick up our stones and throw them at those that don’t look, talk, walk, or have the same color as we do.
Whether your a black man looking down on a Latino, or a white woman sizing up a tanned skin young girl, regardless of the situation you are not acting as Christ has called us to be. I have heard and seen Christians who have insulted other races not their own, then turn around and talk about how much they love God or how proud they are of serving Him for so many years.
A real Christian cannot hold racism in their heart, period.
Believe it or not, when those who have accepted Christ as their savior and the forgiveness of their sins enter Heaven, you are going to see a lot of different kinds of people that you didn’t expect to be there. It’s not just full of your particular race, but of all the races of the Earth. Even Christ wasn’t white with blue eyes and blonde hair, He (as a human being) was born a Jew in Israel, spoke Hebrew or Aramaic and was likely tanned skin with dark eyes. God can speak any language, obviously, which is why we see so many cultures and people connecting to their Creator on Sunday or any other day of the week.
Don’t allow Sunday to be the most segregated day of the week. Use your time at church to be a blessing to those that don’t look like you or speak like you. God does not have favorites (Romans 2:11) nor does he care how you feel about a certain color of people or if they speak English or not (I will assume English since this article is in English).
Get over yourself, let the hatred go, respect your brother or sister in Christ and remember that God’s Kingdom is multicultural, not a private club.
