I'm saddened. I can't find any light in the direction of this movement. None. I see races rising up to take their place at the top of the totem pole, but I do not see love.
You have to be careful not to use "this word", or "that word", say "this color" or "that color", you have to make sure that you are silenced in fear you may say something that offends someone, and already I've said totem pole. But I grew up with beautiful Native American Indians, so I don't know any different. We are moving in a Hitler direction...full of control and dominance, and I do not see any love.
We don't know our worth. We value the worth of the world. We want to be on top, we want to be in control, we want dominance, we do not want to be held down, enslaved, or in bondage. We feel that this control is somehow in the hands of man...because we listen to the world and not to God.
If you read through my blogs, you will see that my first passion is against racism. I despise it. I will not tolerate it, and I will also not tolerate race cards to be played. Why...because your race does not determine who you are, or your direction in life. Anymore than any of my past issues in life have determined my direction, although, I'd love to use it for an excuse when things don't go my way...chalk it up to the race card, the abuse card, the addiction card...but let's never chalk it up to not having a relationship with Jesus. Because then...we'd all be equal and we'd have nothing to climb the ladder of success for...because we would be a people about Christ, instead of ourselves.
But in the meantime, how about we try to shoot each other, kill each other, control each other. Let's try to change our language, our dictionary, our culture. Let's try hatred and violence, let's try all the schemes of Satan...because they are forceful and there is no love in them. I am lead to John 8 when I write this...constant "disputes over". We love to dispute, we love to be right, we love force and we feed off of conflict. Just give us a reason to hate.
Jesus answers that the truth lies in God, and in His ways...of love. Now I'm not talking about the 60's when sex and drugs were the definition of "free love" we didn't have it right then either...but we got there, because of the results of the Vietnam war. But we forget we still have people fighting the depression that the war caused. War is not the answer...and if you don't know history, you will fall victim of it's repeat.
You must know your worth in Christ, regardless of your race, your color, your gender. Your identity is not in man...it's in God. You will never understand or get it right until you line up under God and humble yourself under his Son's name. The name of Jesus...that breaks every chain...including the violence of "lives matter". Only then will we know and see real love.
