The world is now consumed by obsession with racism, race, Black Lives Matter, and related hysteria. Unfortunately, this obsession has infiltrated some churches, especially in the United States.
From a biblical perspective, it is an absolute tragedy to see churches and pastors echoing the lies of Satan and the world.
What does the Bible say about race? NOTHING! “Race” itself is an un-biblical concept.
God’s Word is clear that all nations come from “one blood.”
Acts 17:26: “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.”
Genesis 3:20: “And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.”
In other words, there is only one “race,” the human race. Science and genetic mapping of the entire human genome now confirm that.
All people everywhere are descendants of Adam and Eve, as well as Noah and his wife.
Watch this whole talk here:
They had the genetic makeup to eventually create the enormous diversity of physical appearances that exist today — skin shades, eye shape, height, hair color, eye color, and so on.
When God’s Word is so clear, why are so many churches and Christian leaders holding seminars and giving sermons on “racism” and “race,” with some even going so far as to kneel before Black Lives Matter?
The world’s agenda has infiltrated these churches, and that’s not good.
Of course, God Himself divided people into nations with different languages after the globalist project of building the tower of Babel.
Deuteronomy 32:8: “When the most High divided to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of Adam, he set the bounds of the people according to the number of the children of Israel.”
As people were separated by geographic and language barriers, their genetic makeup grew more isolated from the others, with genetic information being lost down through the generations.
This is how God created the enormous diversity of cats, dogs, and so on in the world as well, after the Ark landed safely following the Flood and the destruction of almost all life on earth.
But even still, the genetic differences between what people falsely refer to as “races” are actually smaller than the differences within a particular “race.”
Beyond that, the most important division in the world is not nations, tribes, tongues, or the artificial construct that is “race.”
It is saved vs. unsaved.
Among the saved, there is total unity in Christ.
Galatians 3:27-28: “For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
Romans 10:11-13: “For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. 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. 13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
The saved come from all nations, tribes, and tongues, as God makes clear.
Revelation 7:9: “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;”
In Christ, Christians have unity.
Let the world be divided by silly and petty concerns like skin shade and melanin levels. Do NOT let the body be divided, when God has so clearly told us His people are UNITED in ONE Body.
Yes, there are different members with different functions, but all of God’s people are united in ONE body all the same.
Darwin’s evil ideas
So where did “race” construct come from? People used to conflate “race” with nationality, referring to the English “race” or the French “race.”
The major culprit in popularizing the contemporary understanding of race was pseudo-scientist Charles Darwin and his On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.
Note the full title, and its allusion to the “favoured races.”
Darwin himself wrote in his diary after encountering the “savages” in Tierra del Fuego that “one can hardly make oneself believe that they are fellow creatures.”
In his book The Descent of Man, Darwin wrote: “the civilized races of man will almost certainly exterminate, and replace, the savage races throughout the world.”
“The break between man and his nearest allies will then be wider, for it will intervene between man in a more civilised state, as we may hope, even than the Caucasian, and some ape as low as a baboon, instead of as now between the negro or Australian and the gorilla,” he wrote.
In other words, Darwin argued that the differences between gorillas and darker skinned people from Africa or Australia was small, but that once allegedly superior Europeans wiped them out, the gulf would be large.
These ideas inspired Nazism, Marxism, eugenics, and many other mass-murdering movements.
And unfortunately, the satanic ideas of this man continue to be force-fed to children at taxpayer expense in government schools across the country.
They are beyond ridiculous, though, and no clear-thinking person could believe them.
The primary reason the people groups of Europe developed civilization and technology faster was not their DNA.
Rather, it was the spread of the Gospel on the European continent under the Roman empire.
This led to rule of law, security of private property rights, stable families, and God’s blessings.
Before the Gospel arrived in Scandinavia, Vikings were sacrificing children to demon gods, raping and pillaging, and living in poverty and darkness.
After the Gospel arrived and the Vikings accepted Christ, Scandinavians became wealthy and prosperous.
Similar phenomena have been seen among virtually all other people groups, with those living in darkness without the light of God’s Word existing in poverty, violence, and misery.
In other words, cultural differences and differences in the amount of light and truth available to a population — not phony “racial” differences — are primarily responsible for much of what we observe in the world today.
For instance, many light-skinned racists look at Africa and falsely believe that the reason the continent is so poor and undeveloped involves “race.”
In reality, it is mostly because the Gospel was so late to penetrate the continent, and communism took root there as European powers withdrew.
As the light of the Gospel spreads in Africa and Asia and dims in Europe, the roles may eventually come to be reversed.
Hatred and racism
Of course, “hate” of people based on their race, or any other characteristic, to the extent that it exists, is wrong. Racism is a sin.
1 John 3:15: “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.”
Hating somebody for their skin tone, or the shape of their nose, or the color of their eyes, or the content of their character — or, this will be controversial, even their racism — is a serious sin.
Jesus actually equates hatred with murder, in the same way that He defines looking on a woman with lust as adultery.
So it’s obviously very serious.
With that said, racism is really not a major problem in the United States. The number of people who genuinely hate somebody based on their “race” is incredibly small.
Just a tiny handful of marginalized “white” racists, and a small but not insignificant number of other races who have been deceived into hating people with lighter skin tones due to alleged sins of their ancestors, still cling to these silly ideas.
However, preferring to be with people from the same culture is not racism, of course. This writer grew up in 8 countries on 4 continents and can attest to the fact that people everywhere are like that. English speakers like to be with English speakers. Republicans like to be with Republicans. It’s a fact of life.
Ironically, America is one of the least racist societies on earth. Founded on the “self-evident truth” that “all men are created equal, and are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” it is founded on the principle of equality under God.
Government exists to protect the rights of everyone, as the founders understood from reading the Bible.
These biblical principles laid the foundation for Anglo-Saxon Christians less than a century later to abolish slavery, a scourge that had been ubiquitous throughout human history. No similar non-Christian movement for abolition existed.
Eventually, Anglo-Saxon Christians worked to end slavery worldwide. It took a long time — slavery was not criminalized in Mauritania until 2007, for example, and it is still widely practiced in North Africa and other regions.
But today, Americans are being told that America is systemically racist society based on racism and that only collective guilt by those with light skin and collective reparations will do.
These are anti-biblical lies that have infected the church that pose a grave threat to the Gospel. They must be rejected.
Colossians 2:8: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”
Under the worldview peddled by the race mongers, all light-skinned people are guilty of racism.
Van Jones, the Marxist “Green Jobs czar” from who was forced out of the Obama administration for being an open communist, went on CNN and declared that every “white” person, including the “most liberal and well-intentioned,” has a racist “virus in his or her brain.”
First of all, collective guilt makes a mockery of the Bible. Everyone is guilty of sinning, and so everyone needs Christ.
But that sin is individual and personal. It’s a sin against God.
You don’t need to repent because somebody 300 years ago with a similar amount of melanin imported a slave they bought from an African war lord.
You need to repent because YOU are a sinner and YOU have sinned against a Holy and Perfect God. The penalty of sin is death, and only Jesus Christ can rescue you from the consequences of your sin.
When pastors buy into the lies of the world, and parrot those lies to their congregations, they destroy their witness, they dishonor Christ, and they divide the Body.
But it’s even worse than that.
Black Lives Matter is not just theologically wrong
BLM is in fact a Marxist group working to tear down the church, the family and liberty — all ordained by God — under the obviously phony guise of protecting “Black Lives.”
Ironically, it is being funded by some of the most powerful and racist capitalists on Earth. And it’s all based lies.
BLM is a Marxist group. Don’t believe me, here is BLM co-founder Patrisse Cullors admitting in on The Real News Network.
She brags that the founders of BLM are “highly trained Marxists.”
Another BLM co-founder, self-proclaimed “queer” feminist Alicia Garza, cited convicted cop-killing terrorist Assata Shakur as the inspiration for the group.
“When I use Assata’s powerful demand in my organizing work, I always begin by sharing where it comes from, sharing about Assata’s significance to the Black Liberation Movement,” Garza explained in a piece about the origins of BLM.
BLM the organization also openly promotes Marxism.
For instance, while BLM routinely paints Trump as a racist dictator, it has a bizarre affinity for the late mass-murdering Communist dictator who enslaved Cuba, Fidel Castro.
When he died, BLM expressed an “overwhelming sense of loss,” praising “El Commandante” for, among other things, protecting Shakur, “who continues to inspire us.”
On its website, under the headline “What We Believe,” BLM hits all the Marxist talking points — especially the modern gender-bending LGBT extremism that seeks to smash the family.
“We disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure,” the statement of beliefs explains, calling for “villages” to take charge of child rearing.
God places the responsibility for raising and educating children with parents. BLM and Marxists believe the State should take over.
The group also boasts of fostering a “queer-affirming network” that will “dismantle cisgender privilege.”
Marx and Satan
Perhaps the most important book ever written about Marx was Marx and Satan by Pastor Richard Wurmbrant, who spent 9 years being tortured by Romanian communists.
Citing Marx’s poetry, he showed that Marx believed in God, but hated Him and wanted to destroy His will.
Marxism repudiates everything God stands for, including private property, the nuclear family, God’s design for male and female, the nation-state, liberty, and more.
They hate America not because of racism, but because it was founded on biblical principles, including the biblical reality that ALL men are CREATED equal, endowed by Creator with unalienable rights, and that government exists to protect these rights.
In Romans 13, God explains that the reason He created government was to punish evil. And He defined evil as murder, theft, lying, adultery, and so on.
Marxism is literally built on a foundation of murder, theft, covetousness, lies, adultery, hatred, and other evil.
A Biblical worldview precludes racism, since all men descendant from Adam and Noah, all life has value, and all people were created in the image of God
The Darwinist/Marxist/Nazi worldview, by contrast, is that humans came from slime that became apes, life has no ultimate meaning, only the strongest should survive, and so on.
Under the Marxist worldview, life cannot and does not matter, because there is no transcendent purpose. Literally NO lives matter.
The Marxist strategy is to divide people into opposing camps and then fan the flames of hatred. Rich v not so rich, men v women, black v white, or whatever other divisions can be fomented.
Marxist regimes slaughtered over 100 million of their OWN people in 20th century. If one judges by the fruit of Marxism, it is clear that this is evil straight from hell.
BLM is not actually about Black lives:
If BLM cared about Black lives, abortion would be its number one target.
Planned Parenthood slaughters about 250 black babies every day, brutally tearing them limb from limb in the most grotesque manner imaginable.
It slaughters more black babies in half an hour than all the unarmed black men killed by police throughout all of last year — with tax money.
In NYC, more black babies are murdered than are born.
Over 250,000 black children murdered in abortion last year, and BLM says not a word.
The Maafa 21 documentary makes a powerful case that this is a genocide against black Americans.
The Centers for Disease Control note that almost half of all U.S. pregnancies among black women end in abortion (472 per 1,000). Among white women, only 16 percent of pregnancies are aborted (161 per 1,000).
And yet Planned Parenthood had the nerve to say: “We’re devastated, grieving, and outraged by violence against black lives. We must continue to demand accountability, justice, and an end to the inequity that continues to define every moment of life for Black America from the racist institutions that uphold white supremacy.”
In a letter to Dr. Clarence Gamble in December, 19, 1939, explaining how to manipulate black people by hiring black ministers to provide cover for her “Negro Project” agenda, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger said: “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.”
As part of her racism, she declared those she viewed as inferior, including racial minorities, to be “human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ’spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
BLM is not really about dismantling racist institutions, either. If it were, PP, founded by raging racist and eugenicist Sanger, would be their first target, followed by the Democrat Party, which historically has been ardent defender of slavery, racism, racial terrorism, KKK, and other evils.
If it were about black lives, the rioters might be concerned about David Dorn, the black former police officer who was murdered by looters while protecting his community.
If it were about black lives, they might also be concerned about the data published by Heather Mac Donald in the Wall Street Journal showing that over 7,000 black men died at the hands of other black men last year, compared to nine unarmed blacks who died at the hands of police.
The data show “a police officer is 18 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male is to be killed by a police officer,” the Journal reported. Many of those murdered officers were black.
Studies have also revealed that police are more likely to shoot white suspects than black suspects.
Instead, BLM targets the nuclear family, which was ordained by God.
Funding this evil
In a 2015 report from Open Society Foundation U.S. Programs Board, the Soros machine boasts of spending $650,000 to “invest in technical assistance and support for the groups at the core of the burgeoning #BlackLivesMatter movement.”
The goals included the “dismantling of structural inequality” supposedly caused by “local law enforcement,” and also to “create a national movement.”
According to an investigation by the Washington Times that relied on Soros foundations’ tax filings and interviews with key players, the far-left billionaire poured some $33 million in one year into organizations fomenting the unrest surrounding the killing of Michael Brown.
The Marxist co-founders of BLM were also working closely with Soros-funded groups before founding BLM.
Soros also helped Nazis steal Jewish property and felt no remorse.
And ironically, despite claiming to be about “Black Lives,” Marxism is a close cousin of national socialism.
In fact, Nazi propaganda chief Joseph Goebbels often referred to mass-murdering communist dictator Vladimir Lenin as the greatest man alive, second only to National Socialist boss Adolf Hitler.
Goebbels also said that “the difference between communism and the Hitler faith was very slight,” the New York Times reported at the time.
If BLM’s anti-family schemes take root, even more Black lives will be destroyed.
The Rockefeller Foundation is also heavily funding the movement and promoting the lies.
In a statement by Rockefeller Foundation boss Rajiv Shah, the group promised to keep promoting the narrative.
He also lies about Rockefeller’s history, ignores their funding of Nazi racial “science” and even monster Joseph Mengele.
In addition, major foundations such as the Ford Foundation and Borealis are funding it too. The head of the Ford Foundation once told lead congressional investigator Norman Dodd that the outfit’s goal was to “so alter life in the United States that it can be comfortably merged with the Soviet Union.”
Even the Russian regime appears to have had a hand in backing BLM. According to CNN, which admittedly is not a reliable source, a Kremlin-controlled “troll farm” bought BLM ads aimed at Baltimore and Ferguson.
The goal was to sow discord and chaos in the United States, CNN “intelligence” sources said.
Corporate America is also fully behind the movement, with major corporations and pro sports showering money and praise on the Marxist outfit.
Many Black people know that BLM hopes to deceive them.
Rapper Lord Jamar, for instance, rejected BLM and noted that Soros is behind it.
Black activist Chaziel Sunz was even bolder. “If you have any kind of brain, you know BLM is endorsed by the Soros and the Clinton family,” he said. “If you have any kind of a brain, you know that those same people don’t give a damn about you, don’t give a damn about black people—they are exploiting the black plight to make money off of you.”
Why would super-capitalists with history of promoting racism and white supremacy support Marxist “useful idiots” in America?
For the same reason they supported the Bolshevik revolution in Russia, as documented in Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution — to kill, steal, enslave, and destroy while consolidating power and looting humanity even more.
Anyone who truly cares about “Black Lives” should denounce this evil movement called “Black Lives Matter.”
Ultimately, the race mongering and the BLM lies are not about Black lives. They are about promoting Marxism, which at its core is satanic. Judge it by its fruits — mass death.
Christians should put all talk of “racism” and “race” OUT of the Church. If God does not bother giving one word about “race” in His Word, then neither should God’s people.
Let the world worry about those things. As for God’s people, let us have unity in Christ.
God bless you all!
