I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly. (John 10:9-10)
Jesus Is The Answer To Racism, Discrimination, And Inequality
Jesus did not kneel. He died. There is a lot of discussions today about racism, discrimination, and inequality. Sports figures have been duped into believing that kneeling in protest will change something that has been around since the beginning of time. The cries to end racism resound around the world. Discrimination is taunted as the greatest of tragedies. Equality is demanded for everything. Racism, discrimination, and inequality all drink from the same cup of poison: there is no such thing as absolute truth. The reason there is racism is because of something the serpent said to the woman in the garden of Eden. Discrimination came because of the deception of the devil on the woman. The Divine Creator established inequality at the beginning of the world. The only problem that mankind faces is the problem of sin, and everything else is a product of sinful action.
Racism comes from the belief that there is a difference in people. Jesus told Nicodemus the Son of God came to save the world. God so loved the world, including all the nations that came from the act of God when He confused the languages of humanity in the plain of Shinar. Every human being on the face of the earth came from Adam and Eve. The blood in one person is the same as the blood in another person. God did not send His Son to die for one nationality or color of skin.
Contrary to the lie of Satan, all lives matter because all lives need the blood of Jesus. Racism comes from sinful hearts who do not believe in the grace and mercy of a loving God. There is no distinction or partiality with God. Racism has existed since Adam and Eve took of the forbidden fruit. Protesting racism is a ridiculous act of ignorance for something that cannot be changed by kneeling but the power of the word of God in a life changed by God’s word. If a man wants to fight racism, obey the will of the Father.
Discrimination is a two-edged sword. It is related to inequality. The world uses a broad brush to define what discrimination and inequality are. Satan used the same tactic when he approached the woman. God had told Adam and Eve they could eat of every fruit of the garden but was not permitted to eat the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The devil came along and convinced Eve that God’s word discriminated against her, and God’s law was unfair. When Eve saw the fruit was able to make her wise and become like God (equal with God), she rejected the word of the Lord and took the fruit. Satan’s view of God was that He was a racist, His law was discriminatory, and refusing to let Eve do whatever she wanted to do was inequality. The nature of sin remains the same.
The world denies the word of God and attacks the Bible as a book of myths. Everything man needs for life is found in the Bible. It tells him where he came from, why he is here, and what will happen when he dies. Jesus said He came to bring the abundant life. That life is found in keeping the word of God, and when men follow the will of the Father, racism, discrimination, and inequality will end. Kneeling has never accomplished anything. All those who think they have changed the world because they knelt in protest are doing nothing to change the world. Jesus changed the world. He died for every man and woman regardless of who they were. But there is a caveat to the sacrifice of Jesus. God does make a distinction about people. He demands righteousness, holiness, and obedience to His word. Jesus discriminated between the many that would be lost in hell and the few saved in eternal life. There is no equality with all men being saved. Most of humanity will not be saved. Jesus said most men would be lost.
The Lord made racist, discriminatory, and inequality speech when He condemned adultery, homosexuality, lying, drunkenness, and a host of other sins. At least, that is the way the world views the will of God. What they fail to recognize is there is one God, and He is the only Lawgiver. Kneeling to protest will not save a person. Rejecting the will of the Father will not bring happiness. Jesus is the only means to find the abundant life. He teaches His followers to love their enemies, do good to all men, honor the king, and seeking the salvation of lost souls. There is inequality in the mind of God because not everyone will be saved. He judges without partiality, and He condemns sin. Living a sinful life does not constitute the blessing of God. The amoral philosophy of the world is a rejection of the clear teachings of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. When the day of judgment comes, there will be discrimination and inequality. If a man is found outside the covenant of God, he will be lost. And that is the day when every man will kneel before the great throne of the Lord God – but it will not be in protest – it will be in subjection.
