The Cure For Racism 2
The cure for racism is to receive the Lord Jesus Christ into one*s heart and then walk the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 3:17: That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
Romans 8:9: But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Romans 5:5b: . . . the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Galatians 5:22a: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, . . .
Galatians 5:16: This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
The love of God is the cure for racism and for all other manifestations of hatred. The Holy Spirit is the only source of the love of God. Individuals without the Holy Spirit will be loveless in varying degrees. Sometimes this lack of love is well hidden and sometimes it is blatantly obvious. There are other kinds of love that may or may not be caused by the Holy Spirit, familial love, friendship love and sexual love.
Laws do not put the love of God into the hearts of men. Demonstrations and violence do not put the love of God into the hearts of men. Racism is evidence that there is a need for the Holy Spirit and for the love of God. Violence and destruction are also evidence that there is a need for the Holy Spirit and for the love of God. Two wrongs do not make anything right.
If you are a racist or if you are violent and destructive you are hating and harming others. And you are harming yourself even more than you are harming others. You are probably on your way to Hell. You are certainly not walking in the Spirit or pleasing the God of love. Receiving Jesus is receiving the love of God into our hearts and receiving Him also changes our eternal destination from Hell to Heaven.
1 John 5:11-12: And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
