All Christians should be against racism.
It's very clear... very easy to say... yet very difficult to overcome.
It doesn't matter if you're Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, Church of Christ, Episcopalian, Presbyterian, Lutheran, or any other denomination... Jesus and his teachings are the basis of the Christian faith.
We, as Christians, are supposed to follow Jesus' teachings and examples.
Did Jesus talk bad about others because of the color of their skin? No. Jesus reached out to EVERYONE, regardless of color or background. We are to do the same.
The Bible tells us to treat each other as we would treat ourselves. Would you want to be treated or talked about like you are treating or talking about others? If not, now is the time to change.
It's difficult.... why?
There are many more examples, but these are three that might cause otherwise good Christians to fail on the most basic of all Christian principles.
We Christians must not underestimate the evil of racism in the human heart.
We pray that all Christians can overcome the sin of racism.
We hope that Christians won't pray for acceptance, but to accept others.
We want each person to love each other as Jesus did... as we are called to do as Christians... without regard for color, culture, or the history of our ancestors.
