*Guest Post* Can I Get a Witness…!

CAN I GET A WITNESS….!

Truth

From the early dawn of human history the eternal being known as ‘GOD’ has revealed Himself empirically by His ability to communicate; long before the establishment of various man-made religions God has accurately and consistently throughout time revealed His truth thru verbal and written testimony to humanity “God who in different times and in various ways spoke in time past to the forefathers and prophets” (Hebrews 1:1)

Now with the ability to communicate the attribute of intelligence is a requirement, only a Supreme Intelligent being such as God, who can and does speak to another intelligent being created in His image and likeness…Man. Communication by definition is someone revealing accurate facts about himself, his character, what he knows, revealing his thoughts to us as lesser created beings; seeking our attention and requiring us to respond to that truth. And the standard of that of communication must be based on Intelligence, Truth and Reason and the character of God himself; the very concept of truth originates with God who is Living Truth, who also possesses impeccable integrity as a character trait; as it is written “It is impossible for God to lie” (Hebrews 6:18)

God has also determined the principle on which to determine the validity of truth from His written record “BY THE MOUTH OF TWO OR THREE WITNESSES, LET THE MATTER BE ESTABLISHED!” (Deut. 19:15) this will be the determining factor in this article by which the truth of the matter will be established.

GUEST POST: GOD and Racism

racism

“WE HOLD THESE TRUTHS TO BE SELF EVIDENT THAT ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL, THAT THEY ARE ENDOWED BY THEIR CREATOR WITH CERTAIN INALIENABLE RIGHTS” – The Declaration of Independence

Racism has been and is one of the most detrimental social evils ever imposed on the mind of man, and has been one of the main causes for global conflicts, genocidal (ethnic cleansing) wars and mans inhumanity to man; and sadly some of its greatest proponents have been by men who claim God endorses this belief; racism is a core belief that ones skin-color and ethnic background alone makes an individual or people group superior and privileged over others who do not share the same skin pigment and has been used as justification for the oppression, suppression and elimination of cultures other than their own; but for some strange reason the individuals holding to such beliefs automatically make the assumption THEIRS is superior above all others.

Western Europe and America have been particularly guilty of exporting this social evil over the centuries; persons of this mind-set naturally need to find a “scapegoat” to make themselves feel superior by enforcing and flaunting this belief system upon those they deem inferior; historically speaking, some 17th century English speaking Christians while escaping persecution and seeking social justice and freedom for themselves have brought these racial prejudices to Americas shores have at the same time denied it to others all the while carrying a bible in their hands, because they believe the bible says so….                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Gods word has been used to justify slavery, segregation, the mistreatment and murder of minorities, making marriages between people illegal by people of diverse backgrounds solely base on “race”  but is this biblically based? Do these beliefs draw support from scripture?                                                     But from the church that is called by God to be “the pillar and ground of the Truth” (1Tim 3:15) I hear a deafening silence….

Martin Luther King once described Sunday morning worship as “the most segregated time in America”…. Read the rest of this entry »
