Racism is a Sin
by David J. Stewart
"My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with respect of persons. —James 2:1
Respect of Persons is a Sin
I love all people of all races of all nations of all religions. This is God's unconditional love shed abroad in my heart. It is sinful to disrespect or mistreat someone simply because of their nationality, disability, weakness, poverty, or the color of their skin. Every human being is validated in God's eyes the very moment they are conceived in the womb. Every human being is created in the image of God.
We read in James 2:1 that it is wrong to have "respect" (STRONG'S CONCORDANCE: Gk. prosopolepsia, which means, "partiality, i.e. favoritism") of persons. Romans 2:11 declares, "For there is no respect of persons with God." Respect of persons is a sin, and it exists in many forms. The Word of God proclaims "...but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD" (Leviticus 19:18). The Bible teaches that we should love other people the same as we love our selves. God's love is unconditional. If we are to exemplify Jesus in our life, then we must love people unconditionally, even our enemies. We are to love our neighbor as our self.
Racism is a work of the flesh. No one should be favored or discriminated against because of their nationality or skin color. God is NO respecter of persons. God needed to teach Peter in Acts Chapter 10 that the Jews were NO better than the Gentiles. We read in Acts 10:34, "Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons." Up until Acts 10, Peter (a Jew) had been misled to believe that salvation was only of the Jews. Not so! Romans 10:12 plainly teaches that God is RICH unto all that call upon His name, whether they be Jew or Gentile.
Natural Ethnic Barriers are Not Racism
At the tower of Babel, God separated mankind across the earth, changing their languages, and I believe, their race at that time also. For a certainty, we know that God did segregate man by changing his location and language. There are over 7,000 established languages in the world today. Acts 17:26 and 27 tells us why God did this, "And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord..."
God set men's boundaries, dividing them by languages and territories, that all men might seek the Lord. In other words, it's always a bad thing when men are united, because they always unite against God. This is because of man's sin nature, which is prone to evil. This was the problem which led to the first Babel. So God separated them for their own good. Today, as the world once again seeks to unite, they are uniting together against God. This is the New World Order.
I'd also like to comment that the Bible does not condemn interracial marriage. Hebrews 13:4 clearly states "marriage is honorable in ALL... but whores and whoremongers God will judge." I personally do not think interracial marriage is a good idea for numerous reasons; but Hebrews 13:4 says marriage is the honorable thing to do FOR ALL.
New World Order Agenda
It is a sin to deliberately promote interracial marriage as part of a New World Order agenda. Such heathen movies as, JUNGLE FEVER, promote interracial relationships. Since interracial marriage is very controversial, interracial couples are nearly ALWAYS liberal-minded and tolerant toward the homosexual agenda. It's not just interracial marriage, Satan is trying to break down ALL boundaries of nationality, heritage, race, religion and even gender. Again, the Bible permits interracial marriage in Hebrews 13:4; but it is a sin to deliberately promote such relationships as part of a New World Order agenda.
Abortion is the Ultimate Racism!
You want to talk about racism, take a look at www.blackgenocide.org. Abortion is extreme discrimination. Just as with slavery, it is the free who have no problem with oppression. Babies have rights too! Who is the Supreme Court to say that a growing child is not a human being? Babies have their skulls cracked open and their brains sucked out. The problem is that mothers don't love God. "Thou shalt not kill" (Exodus 20:13).
If you look at abortion statistics (see www.blackgenocide.org), African American women are far more likely to have abortions than middle-class White women. It is evident that poverty and abortion are linked. The sad thing is that poor Black mothers aren't giving up their babies because they're poor; BUT rather, because the government is targeting them with PRO-abortion propaganda through organizations such as Planned Parenthood (MURDERHOOD!).
If you're a Black woman who's had an abortion, don't you dare cry "racism," because you are the ultimate racist.
The Jews are No Better Than Anyone Else
Jews are no better, or worse, than anyone else.
Some Jews today are extremely arrogant, thinking that they are automatically going to Heaven because they are Jewish; BUT God says, "For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him" (Romans 10:12). God clearly states that there is absolutely NO difference between the Jew and the Gentile. We are all guilty sinners (Romans 3:10,23). We all deserve to burn in Hell and suffer for our sins (Romans 6:23).
Fortunately, God unconditionally loves us all, and sent His Son Jesus Christ to pay for our sins (John 3:16; Romans 5:8; 1st John 3:16). Anyone can be saved by believing on Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31; Romans 10:13). Those who don't believe on Christ (including unbelieving Jews) will go to Hell (John 3:36). Those who refuse to obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ will be punished in Eternal Fire and Damnation (2nd Thessalonians 1:8). This includes unbelieving Jews.
Many Christians have been deceived into believing that Jews are more valuable to God than Gentiles. Nothing could be further from the truth of God's Word. Everyone is special to God. Zionism is a false doctrine.
Why is Only the Jewish Holocaust Remembered?
Look at Cambodia and how Pol Pot murdered millions of innocent poor people. Look at Rwanda and how 500,000 of them were tortured to death by the Tutsi rebels. Look at the tens-of-millions killed in the Russian gulags, or the Unit 731 Japanese torture camps in WWII. The Japanese locked Chinese people into small cages, injected gasoline into their veins, raped teen girls and sewed their wombs closed—all experiments. Japan murdered over 20,000,000 innocent Chinese people. Does anyone care about those poor Russians who died in the gulags? Where is their memorial? Where is their holocaust museum? Russia refuses to even acknowledge the gulag atrocities. I think it is extreme racism for the world to show so much sympathy for the Jews, while dozens of holocausts throughout history are totally IGNORED. Ten times more Americans have been murdered by abortion than Jews died in the holocaust. It is all so horrible. I am not diminishing the Jewish holocaust, I am simply saying that we ought to feel sympathy for other victim groups equally.
The Jews are God's People; But Most are Not God's Children
The Jews are God's people; but, that does not make them God's children (born again Christians). Most Jews are bound for Hell because they have rejected Jesus as their Messiah. I say this with great sadness, for God is not willing for any to perish (2nd Peter 3:9). The Bible is clear that Israel will not be regathered to the Promised Land until Jesus returns at the Second Coming (Ezekiel 28:25,26). At that time, Israel will possess ALL of the Promised Land—from the Euphrates river in the north, to the Nile river in the south. The Land of Palestine will once again flow with milk and honey, and flourish with agriculture.
In contrast, the nation of Israel today was formed by evil men who drove Palestinians from their homes at gun-point. The "Star of David" is not found in the Bible, and is an occult symbol. The people who are raising money to return Jews back to Jerusalem today, are doing the same thing Abraham did when he took Hagar as his wife. Abraham and Sara didn't believe God's promise, i.e., that He would make them parents in their old age. So they took the matter into their own hands. Israel today is not the work of God. God broke off His business dealings with Israel in 586 B.C., when he allowed Babylon to destroy Israel as a nation.
Are the Jews still God's people? Yes! However, God has temporarily turned to the Gentiles to preach the Gospel, until the Tribulation Period comes, when 144,000 Jews will turn to the Lord, and God will use them to win multitudes to Christ. Most Jews today are unsaved, who foolishly believe they will someday see the Promised Land; BUT, they won't. Only SAVED Jews, who have believed upon the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior, will be regathered into the Promised Land prophesied of in the Scriptures. I do not say this to be unkind; but to speak the truth. According to Galatians 3:7, every born again Christian is a child of Abraham, "Know ye therefore that they which are of faith, the same are the children of Abraham." A physical Jew is not guaranteed anything unless he becomes a spiritual Jew by faith alone in Jesus Christ.

Actor Bill Cosby is 100% Correct
Bill Cosby offended many Blacks when he spoke the harsh reality to them in 2004...
"Let me tell you something, your dirty laundry gets out of school at 2:30 every day. It's cursing and calling each other 'nigger' as they're walking up and down the street. They think they hip — can't read, can't write — 50 percent of them."
"The more you invest in that child, the more you are not going to let some CD tell your child how to curse and how to say the word 'nigger.' This is an accepted word. You are so hip with 'nigger,' but you can't even spell it."
"We got too many young girls who don't know how to parent, turning themselves into parents. Ladies and gentlemen, our little eight-year-old boys, nine-year-old boys, having erections and only acting out that which they see and hear on some CD. They're acting that out and they don't know the damage that they are doing when they rape some little girl nine years old and what they have done to her whole life. It's time to stop!"
"When you put on a record, and that record is yelling 'nigger this' and 'nigger that' and cursing all over the thing and you got your little six-year-old and seven-year-old sitting in the back seat of the car -- those children hear that. And I am telling you when you put it the CD on and then you get up and dance to it — What are you saying to your children?"
"They put themselves on the train, you know, the buses, and they don't even care what color or what age somebody else is, it's about them and their cursing and grabbing each other and laughing and giggling and they're going nowhere. Their book bags are very, very thin."

Bill Cosby is right! This is the core problem in Americas today... IRRESPONSIBLE PARENTS!!!
What About the KKK?
The Ku Klux Klan is an occult organization, linked with Freemasonry, which is intended to demonize Americans who still believe in the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, Patriotism, the Word of God, and Christianity. A view of the KKK's "Platform" on their website shows that they are against abortion, against homosexuality, against foreign aid for other nations, they want U.S. borders guarded, the public school system overhauled, the Federal Reserve Bank abolished, et cetera. These are all good things, and certainly America needs them to happen; however, the intent of the secret KKK group is to discredit those in America, mainly Christians, who believe such things. The KKK, with their unbiblical hatred for Blacks and Jews, is well-known as a hate group, and despised by most Americans. It couldn't be more obvious to any thinking person, that the KKK is a New World Order organization, whose goal is to demonize Patriots and Christians.
If God wanted us all to inter-marry, and dwell together, then He would have made us all the same. But God made us all different, gave us different languages, different homelands, different cultures, et cetera. I believe it is wisest for people to associate, date, work and marry within their own ethnic group. However, America is all about diversity and there is nothing sinful about crossing ethnic barriers. What is sinful is deliberately breaking down racial barriers with the intent of “making a statement.” Much interracial dating today is done for the sole purpose of doing something that is offensive to some people. A marriage should be based upon love and commitment, and not out of rebellion against a cultural mindset.
Racism is a sin and God expects us to be fair and just with everyone, regardless of their skin color or national heritage. Regardless of our prejudices, which is a normal part of life, we are expected by God to LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF (Leviticus 19:18). The answer to sin has never been reformation, education, or rehabilitation; BUT, rather, Jesus Christ, and the wonderful salvation which can only be found by trusting upon Christ's precious blood, which He shed for our sins at the cross.
I love all people of all races of all nations. I take a Biblical stand against sin, because that's what God commands every believer to do (Ephesians 5:11); but I never condemn anyone for the sins they commit, for we are all guilty, dirty, rotten, hell-deserving sinners (Romans 3:10-23). If you are an interracial couple, God bless you. Serve the Lord together. You are not doing anything sinful in God's eyes. If you are single, make sure you marry for love and not as part of a social agenda.
God's love is unconditional. Likewise, we ought to love all people unconditionally in the Lord.
