In a light-hearted text conversation, today, a brother of mine asked me if I was a racist? We are working together on a special upcoming men’s event and I let him know that I was going to go to black churches to promote the event. I chuckled when he replied, “no white churches, are you a racist?” His next text was apologetic as he thought that maybe he had offended me, but I knew he was kidding. Did I tell you that this friend is white?
This brother knows me well enough to be able to kid with me that way, because my walk as a believer has demonstrated that I am anything but a racist! However, I began to think about the question, “Are you a racist” and wondered how many people confess Christ as their Savior, yet they hate someone because of the color of their skin or their ethnicity?
According to the Word of God, it is impossible to be a Christian and hate others. And yet so many will tell you that they are and in the same breath explain how they don’t like black people or white people! What do you think? I want to hear your thoughts. Sign up now and blog with me on this!
