My View On Racism. Written by Manashantii. Monday 8th of June 2015

Black Supremacy is wrong and White Supremacy is also wrong. People holding to the belief that their race and culture is superior causes social tension and the polarisation of society and therefore the polarisation of people. Cultures exist because of race, languages and country borders. Real Christianity is counter-culture. God’s people should not have idolatry of the culture they live in.

Jealousy, lack of respect, hatred, distrust and fear also plays a part in racism. Lack of individual integration causes social disintegration. Social polarisation causes social chaos, racism and terrorism. Racism is a sin that culturally divides people, causing pain and hatred. I believe that racism does not cease by racism. If you create war with others, then you are at war within yourself, for how can you know peace, when you play with the devil? The answer is love, education (understanding one another and understanding each other’s culture) forgiveness of past history and cultural integration.

We are all born in Spirit and made in the image of God. We are our Spirit not our Skin colour race. We are Spirit beings, we are not animals. We all have one ancestor which is Adam. Christians are all one belonging to the Christian family, therefore we are united family of God. We are brothers and sisters in Christ. No culture can supersede the Word of God. Problems have a spiritual and psychological root. Race is a false man made construct designed to cause chaos. I believe that racism is a psychological virus and a spiritual virus that is culturally nurtured in us. We must learn to let go off cultural and ethnic prejudices and begin trusting relationships with each other regardless of religion, race or ethnicities. The answer to the world’s problem is Jesus, Love, Trust, Forgiveness, Self-esteem and looking forward, not behind. We are all sinners and we all individually owe one another and the world love, forgiveness and peace.

I believe racism is a political and a spiritual agenda with the intention to psychologically and socially oppress, control and abuse the masses, it is also Spiritual warfare, and the antithesis of racial harmony and unity. Racism is spiritual jealousy. Racism is jealousy, fear, and power struggles and the need to control a person or persons with emotional and or physical violence. Racial prejudice and ethnic division, social segregation and lies are the weapons used to control and oppress people. Racism is a Spiritual, emotional and mental disease. Racism is a barrier to love and truth. Racism destroys families and the human family called the human race, which I call humanitree (humanity). The devil doesn’t want all people to unite against him.

My views are a reflection of my psychological nature and the family background which I grew up in which is multi-ethnic and multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-lingual. I am not ashamed to say that I love all people regardless of race, culture, history or language. Whilst growing up people of all races, various cultures, ethnicities and religions made my life joyful, culturally colourful and built my strong self esteem and I am so grateful. Sadly for me most people are mentally monochrome and living under satan’s lie.

My skin is definitely brown without a doubt which I love. My eyes, my mind, heart and mouth does not see, think, feel or speak hate against skin colours, to me if I did, this would be nonsensical. My brown skin is not the most important thing about me. My skin is a description not a definition of my heart. The colour of someone’s skin or nationality is of no relevance to me. To think and speak in a racist way to someone is to curse yourself. Love everyone with a pure heart. We are all equal value to God who is our Heavenly Father who is our creator. Focus on God because His love is never ending. Whatever religion you are, please pray and meditate for peace within people of all colours and ethnicities, when you do this you speak life on mankind and destroy the devil’s evil plans.

Forgiveness is a bridge that mends and heals people and the past. Love means totally forgiving. Perfect your love. Would you sacrifice your feelings of blame, hatred and anger in order for peace to reign? Would you be willing to make the world a better place and forgive? Would you be prepared to see that every nation is a sinner including you? Would you put the past behind you? Would you build a bridge between polarised people and nations? Would you fight for peace? Would you let God be the Judge?

Be focused on making a successful future life for yourself and others, not dwelling on the past. Amen.

Deuteronomy 27v19  Cursed is anyone who denies justice to foreigners, orphans or widows’ And all the people will reply, Amen.

Romans 12v21  Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.

Matthew 22v 35-40

35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Luke 10v25-37 

25 One day an expert in religious law stood up to test Jesus by asking him this question: “Teacher, what should I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 Jesus replied, “What does the law of Moses say? How do you read it?”

27 The man answered, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind.’ And, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’”[a]

28 “Right!” Jesus told him. “Do this and you will live!”

29 The man wanted to justify his actions, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?” 

to the man who was attacked by bandits?” Jesus asked.

37 The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.”

Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.”

Parable of the Good Samaritan

30 Jesus replied with a story: “A Jewish man was traveling from Jerusalem down to Jericho, and he was attacked by bandits. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him up, and left him half dead beside the road.

31 “By chance a priest came along. But when he saw the man lying there, he crossed to the other side of the road and passed him by. 32 A Temple assistant[b]walked over and looked at him lying there, but he also passed by on the other side.

33 “Then a despised Samaritan came along, and when he saw the man, he felt compassion for him. 34 Going over to him, the Samaritan soothed his wounds with olive oil and wine and bandaged them. Then he put the man on his own donkey and took him to an inn, where he took care of him. 35 The next day he handed the innkeeper two silver coins,[c] telling him, ‘Take care of this man. If his bill runs higher than this, I’ll pay you the next time I’m here.’

36 “Now which of these three would you say was a neighbor to the man who was attacked by bandits?” Jesus asked.

37 The man replied, “The one who showed him mercy.”

Then Jesus said, “Yes, now go and do the same.”

Matthew 5v44- 46

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; 

45 That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

Jesus said ” If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who do good to you what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.”  The Holy Bible, Luke 6v32 and Matthew 5v46

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 1 John 4v18
