#Racism, Will Bring Destruction To Those Who Practice It
The words human race, are described in Webster's Collegiate Dictionary as, "a family, tribe, people, or nation belonging to the same stock: a class or kind of people unified by community of interests, habits, or characteristics: a division of mankind possessing traits that are transmissible by descent and sufficient to characterize it as a distinct human type: inherited temperament or disposition: distinctive flavor, taste, or strength." Notice within this definition, we are, "a class or kind of #people unified." These words clearly help us to see that we are all "one kind" members of the human family. We are variations of races, but still united as one part of the #human race.
Previously, on the news was the major discussion of the #racist comments made by #Donald Sterling, owner of the L.A. Clippers. He discussed with his mistress how it bothered him that she posed with a black person on Instagram. How sad that in the year of 2014, we are still faced with issues concerning the color of our skin. When our Heavenly Father Jehovah, looks down on the earth, do you think he cares about the color of our skin or the way we treat each other? The Bible clearly says that "You must not take vengeance nor hold a grudge against the sons of your people and you must love your fellow man as yourself. I am Jehovah." (Leviticus 19:18) New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures
Recently, while participating on a fishing trip in the state of Delaware, two young white couples were on the pier. They seem pleasant but spoke with a deep southern tone. It was obvious they were intoxicated, as they returned to their vehicle. Once on the back of their truck and within the truck's cab, two of them screamed the word, "niggers." Hearing this word was somewhat shocking. It had been years since such a vicious word was expressed to me personally. Sure, their state of intoxication could have been the problem but it was a little uncomfortable to see such young people, still had this mentality. It is also amazing when you hear or see other races, place themselves above another race because of skin color or heritage. After all, we are all still part of the human race, with the same bone structure, inner organs and need of oxygen. We are just covered in a different package of skin, which makes us all unique in the eyes of our Grand Creator.
When we carefully consider the insightful words from our Heavenly Father concerning the first humans Adam and Eve, "And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation . . ." (The Holy Bible Revised Standard Version) The point we must all accept and appreciate is, we are all "offspring of Adam and Eve." Understanding these very principles, helps us to see why, "Truly I perceive that God shows no partiality, but in every nation any one who fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him." (Acts 10:34, 35) We all originate from the same pool of genes. What a tremendously remarkable possibility, concerning the reality of the human race. When we come to the realization of this fact; no race will feel they are better than the other which causes #hatred and derision. Never would we want to be part of such degrading thoughts and activities.
#Racism or any form of prejudices are hurtful to its victims. Those who practice hatred against their fellow brothers and sisters will not be in the new world because Jehovah God promises pain would not exist anymore. You cannot inherit God's kingdom causing pain through racist statements and actions. Regardless, of your status or skin color, you will not be a part of that new world Jesus taught us to pray for in the model prayer. So, again you must truly consider whether that sinful tendency will cause you to be eliminated from the possibility of gaining everlasting life due to stubborn stupidity. Do you utilize your skin color in an attempt to make yourself superior to control others? If so, do you realize this life is temporary that we presently live in? Think carefully and be prayerful about what you practice and believe because our Heavenly Father, can read our hearts. God knows what we are thinking and why we feel the way we do. May you utilize your life now for something that actually benefits the world rather than focusing on skin color which is shallow and ignorant.
