The Race Card and the Bible by Bill Wilson

July 20, 2010 at 10:01 AM 1 comment

This blog is actually by Bill Wilson.  It is appallingly true, unfortunately.  Not only are Christians (professing or authentic) misunderstanding much of what is going on in this world, due to their desire for social justice, but they do so because they do not seem to understand the basic doctrines taught in Scripture.

This has never been more clear than since this country elected its first black president. Of course, there is absolutely nothing wrong with electing anyone of color (or gender for that matter), but the problem with our current president is his particular outlook and personal associations.  Since BEFORE he became president, it was clear to many of us that he was very pro-Palestinian and pro-Islamic, which placed him against what America stands for and what this country has valued since its inception.

Over the past decade or more, the race card has been played with increasing frequency.  The problem with that though is that while racism DOES exist in the United States and in the world, making every issue revolve around race is not only untrue, but counter-productive.  People are getting tired of doing what is right and being called racist.  This is most recently true with the issue surrounding the determination by Muslim groups to build a mosque at Ground Zero.  The term “racist” has already been bandied about by Muslims against those who are not.  It is a term that is used to extinguish all debate or dissension.  Who wants to be called a racist?  It seems that only racists actually appreciate being called that and they could care less what anyone thinks.  The individual who is clearly not racist, but opposes the mosque at Ground Zero because they are all too well aware of the real intentions of Muslims (as part of the tenets of Islam) in building a mosque.  These people are also well aware of the fact that though the mosque at Ground Zero is being touted as a place for all faiths to gather and learn, no one except Muslims will ever be allowed inside the worship area of the mosque itself.

To call people racist is to immediately close down dialogue.  It is like calling someone a “hatermongerer” when they say without emotion that they believe homosexuality to be wrong.  I would have to agree with Wilson (see below) that our current president is polarizing the races, simply because he refuses to be playing only to those groups who are on “his side,” and for the most part, they are radical blacks whose doctrine is Black Dominion Theology.  It is sad and tragic that this is happening in a country that had slavery and fought a war over it, in order that slaves would be able to be free.  The war of the North vs. the South was fought mainly over the issue of slavery with brother pitted against brother – all of it on American soil.

We can be assured that as time goes on, the race situation will become worse and it will have no winners.

The Race Card and The Bible
By Bill Wilson

READERS WARNING: This Jot may be shocking to you. It may challenge some of your thought process. It may anger you. Instead of being united under the nation’s first president of color, it appears that the races have become even more polarized than they were before the presidential election. Race has become a major issue in the hearts and minds of Americans. Just recently, former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin tweeted “Peace-seeking Muslims, pls understand, Ground Zero mosque is UNNECESSARY provocation; it stabs hearts. Pls reject it in interest of healing.” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s policy aid replied, “whose hearts? Racist hearts?”

Since when is Islam a race? Since this new dawn of playing the racist card as the first retort to anything with which anybody disagrees. Last week, I was called a racist for attending a rally in support of the Arizona illegal immigration law. I have been accused of being racist for criticizing the socialist policies and radical appointments of the White House. I have had well meaning people of color who love the LORD email me wondering why I believe that social justice is wrong minded, or why collective salvation is heresy. They believe that there needs to be balance in the Conservative Christian message so as to promote unity among the diverse ethnics and races in Christianity.

Whites are experiencing first hand the reverse racist policies of the White House. As my friend Robert Knight pointed out in a recent Washington Times article: “Attorney General Eric Holder, who accused his fellow Americans of being “a nation of cowards” for not talking more about race, dismissed charges against New Black Panther Party members caught on tape blatantly intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place in 2008. One defendant, King Samir Shabbaz, who wore military garb and brandished a baton, later told a black audience, “You want freedom? You’re gonna have to kill some crackers! You’re gonna have to kill some of their babies!” This is just one example of many.

Maybe us white folk are finally seeing much of what our Black brethren perceived to be a problem for generations. Two wrongs don’t make it right, but common Biblical sense would go a long way toward healing these issues. For example, social justice in ending discrimination and establishing a man’s rights as endowed by the Creator is appropriate. Social justice in establishing a dictatorial government and/or redistributing wealth is evil.  We need to be a Matthew 22:39 people where Jesus commanded, “Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself.” If we were to love one another, and get back to the balanced principles of the Bible–not twisting them for political or economic gain–we would be a powerfully united country!
