Republic of South-Africa!

Hatred of foreigners and open Racism?

This is not what people around the world expected to ever hear, but it is the reality of the human heart that racism is a world-wide condition!

People get jealous when others make more money and can live better than the locals, some feel that they have been out done by the various incoming communities? But sometimes this is the cover for their failings of being lazy or over charging and they just don’t see why they should be undercut!

The business world is a hard place of competition and yet it is a wonderful place of offering variety and difference to people who have not seen, tasted or known new things?

Prayers are essential now that people are getting killed on the richest and most diverse International nation in Africa! Facing the facts of how we have failed is another and seeking that others will call on Jesus is a most vital line to follow that they be saved!

Genesis 37:11,  Psalm 55:1,   Proverbs 10:18,   26:26,   Matthew 20:15,   1 Corinthians 13:4,   Galatians 5:26,   Philippians 1:15,   Hebrews 12:3.

Anti-Semitism!

The problems with Racism?

No human alive today on this planet can say that they are not without hating a race, colour, creed or religion, we are all guilty of this sin!

We like our own space and culture, we like to be with our own people and sometimes we do not want to mix with the other side?

Anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, sectarianism and a plethora of many more names sums up this kind of hatred and jealousy of each other including racism!

God told us that He gave His one and only Son Jesus, because He loved the world, meaning all races, skin colours! But it is the sin in our own hearts that blocks us off from either coming to the truth of the New Life or holding on to that promised Eternity!

Ecclesiastes 7:7,    Jeremiah 2:14,   29-11-13,    John 3:3,   15-18,   Romans 3:22-23,   6:22-23.

Reconciliation. One.

Forgive and Forget.

Bitterness is a terrible condition to be in, when one is claiming to have a faith in God? Like racism and sectarianism, they block the power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives! Jesus was rejected first by His own people, but He has not given up on humans with all our flaws?

Jesus went to the cross/stake/tree for our sins, making that final atonement and rising from the dead so that we may have a New Life and overcome the sting of natural death!

Calvinism in some respects justifies sins, while in others it gives a belief that once saved will get us into heaven? But the bible is more complex and we need to understand it from the context that it was written in?

Luke 23:34,   Romans 5:10,   Matthew 5:23-26,   Colossians 1:20-22,   Hebrews 2:17.

Real Equality. Part-Two.

Eagerness.

There is something missing today in the Church in relation to giving to fellow believers, away in far off lands? Collections contain foreign coinage and copper and it is the rich who limit themselves, while others don’t really care.

It proves that Ekklesia is now very much in the world, in its attitude!

The Apostle Paul was shocked how the Gentiles where going out of their was to finance the poverty of the Jews in Jerusalem.

Politics and misunderstandings from racism and Anti-Semitism have choked Christians from understanding their place in relation to Biblical truth, taking the emphasis off their responsibility!

Acts 24:17,  Romans 15:25-26,  2 Corinthians 8:9.

Ireland in Africa. Part-Three.

Africa in Ireland.

The black Church in the island of Ireland has been stunted, because of its desire to see a movement of Gods power. Catholocism is traditional, Protestantnism predominantly is racist in its evangelicalism.

If Patrick was with us today? He would be disgusted by the religious seperation and decline in morality and respect for Jesus claimed by many who have twisted everything to suite their own agendas.

Infact Ireland is no longer a Christian country, yet there are many believers who are struggling with the unbelivable responses from the state, the E.U. and Unionism who refuse to forgive and begrudge from historical prespective.

John 3:31-36,  1 Corinthians 15:8-10,  1 Timothy 1:15-16.

Holocuast unbelievers. Part-Three.

Black people.

There is sadly as many people today in Europe and N-America who think that black people are not fully human, many of their ideas stem from 19th Century Eugenics. There are various terms used to cover these root factors such as racism and intitutionalism, but the truth is much bare.

Black people have had it hard in white society for the last 600 years, but Jewish people have suffered under black people and other nations for the last 4000 years. The problem is really the sinfulness of the human heart in relation to jealousy and pride and if we say we have faith in God we need to be rid of these ideas.

Exodus 6:6-8,    Judges 12:6,    1 John 1:7-10.

GENOCIDE. Part-Two.

Recording History.

It is easy for us to look back and perhaps find a new interpretation of certain events, while some like to prove the facts wrong. We must try not to twist recorded facts, unless we have solid proofs rather than hunches or our own ideas.

Revisionism today is big business it sells books and it is not just cover the Jewish Holocuast, but also many recent wars, genocides and mass killing conflicts.

It is when we start to say things like ‘Oh well you know them, they always whatever,’ that is the time for us to pull back. Steriotyping races means only one this anti- ism, racism, sectarianism and this is never Gods way.

Judges 12:6,  Matthew 26;73,  Mark 14:70.
