There's Only One Race -- The Human Race!

After reading this American Thinker Article today, regarding all different races and ethnic backgrounds working together as one, in helping the flood victims in Houston, and after reading this article about a black teenager's example of dedication and commitment; these two articles lend credence to the Bible's declaration that there's only one race -- the human race! (Acts 17:24-26).

Additionally, the Bible states over and over again, that "God is no respecter of persons" (Acts 10:34 - also see here). We know this is true because every human being who has ever lived has sinned before God (Romans 3:1-23) and will stand before God in Judgment (Romans 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:10). Only those who are "in Christ Jesus" will stand before Him blameless (Romans 8:1).

There's nothing worse than having the curse of a closed and prejudiced mind. We need to lovingly tell folks of different races and ethnic backgrounds to put away their race card, if they harbor any animosity against their fellow man, and welcome them with open arms and open minds to the human race.

Beloved, God does not want anyone to perish, "but that all should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9). Thus, instead of playing the race card, let's play the "obedience card" -- for that's the only card God will accept (1 Samuel 15:20-23).
