A Colorless Humanity

“Western civilization, Christianity, decency are struggling for their lives. In this worldwide civil war, race prejudice is our most dangerous enemy, for it is a disease at the very root of our democratic life.” Mordecai Wyatt Johnson (1891-1976) American Educator and Pastor; 1st African American President of Howard University (1926-1960)
It sure would be ‘heaven’ if human beings would get along with one another as God commands us to. It is possible, because all things are possible with God. It is God Who creates each life and places its spirit in the human temple of His choice. Humans are the crème de la crème of all the beauty God placed in the world. But mankind’s abounding prejudices – race being the most prominent – shrouds the glory of God’s human landscape. Would it have been better for God had to have made us colorless?  No. Being colorless is not the answer. What has to happen is the darkness of sin must be cleansed away from the heart of man. Then and only then will humanity see beyond the varying hues of its divine nature, and have respect – without prejudice - for the character and life of every person. Galatians 3:28 (NLT) There is no longer Jew or Gentile, slave or free, male and female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus.
