RACISM VERSUS CHRISTIANITY

 

Our God neither preaches nor condones racism and in fact goes much further. He offers no predjudice at all save the obvious exception of sin. Now we all know that God has chosen a nation to be called his. Of course they were filled with pride and tried to with hold salvation from every one not of their blood. However God in His infinite love had different plans.

 

John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

Acts 10:34-35  Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

 

If you read all of Acts 10 in particular verse 28 you will see how God’s law differs from mans. Notice in the following scriptures the ever present word whosoever. As you read them please consider a common thread, realizing the scripture states that we are to live by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Some we love to hear and some not so much.I think it wise not to reveal the thread but rather ask the very Spirit of God reveal as He wills to you.

 

Mark 8:38  Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.

 

Mark 9:37  Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.

 

Mark 9:41  For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.

 

Mark 9:42  And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.

 

Mark 10:11  And he saith unto them, Whosoever shall put away his wife, and marry another, committeth adultery against her.

 

Mark 10:15  Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

 

Mark 10:44  And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

 

Mark 11:23  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

 

Luke 9:24  For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

 

Luke 9:26  For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father’s, and of the holy angels.

 

Luke 12:8  Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

 

Luke 14:27  And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple.

 

 

John 11:26  And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

 

John 16:2  They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

 

Romans 10:11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

 

Romans 10:13  For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

 

Romans 13:2  Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.

 

James 4:4  Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

 

1 John 3:10  In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.

 

2 John 1:9  Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

 

Revelation 14:11  And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

 

Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

 

Revelation 22:17  And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

 

2 Chronicles 19:7  Wherefore now let the fear of the LORD be upon you; take heed and do it: for there is no iniquity with the LORD our God, nor respect of persons, nor taking of gifts.

A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA

 

 

Do You Know The Bible?

 

Our Vicar, the Reverend Thomas Lewis, told our congregation, ‘Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you all understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark, chapter 17.’

 

The following Sunday, as Thomas prepared to deliver his sermon; he asked for a show of hands, he wanted to know how many people had read Mark 17. Almost every hand went up.

 

Thomas smiled and said, ‘Mark only has 16 chapters. I will know proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying.’

 

 

Long Sermon

Bunny, a pastor, known for his lengthy sermons, noticed Ralph get up and leave during the middle of his message. He returned just before the conclusion of the service. Afterwards Bunny asked Ralph where he had gone.  ‘I went to get a haircut,’ was the reply.

‘But,’ said Bunny the pastor, ‘Why didn’t you do that before the service?’

‘Because,’ Ralph said, ‘I didn’t need one then.’

 

 

A Question of Exam Honesty

 

In the examination paper, the professor wanted us to sign a form stating that we had not received any outside assistance.

 

Unsure of whether he should sign the form, one student stated that he had prayed for the assistance of God.

 

The professor carefully studied his answer page and then said, “You can sign it with a clear conscience. God did not assist you.”

 

 

READ THIS. LET IT REALLY SINK IN.

THEN CHOOSE HOW YOU START YOUR DAY TOMORROW.

 

Attitude is Everything Michael is the kind of guy you love to hate. He is always in a good mood and always has something positive to say.

 

When someone would ask him how he was doing, he would reply, “If I were any better, I would be twins!”

 

He was a natural motivator.

 

If an employee was having a bad day, Michael was there telling the employee how to look on the positive side of the situation.

 

Seeing this style really made me curious, so one day I went up to Michael and asked him, “I don’t get it! You can’t be a positive person all of the time. How do you do it?”

 

Michael replied, “Each morning I wake up and say to myself, you have two choices today. You can choose to be in a good mood or … you can choose to be in a bad mood. I choose to be in a good mood.

 

Each time something bad happens, I can choose to be a victim or…I can choose to learn from it. I choose to learn from it.

 

Every time someone comes to me complaining, I can choose to accept their complaining or… I can point out the positive side of life. I choose the positive side of life.

 

Yeah, right, it’s not that easy,” I protested. “Yes, it is,” Michael said. “Life is all about choices. When you cut away all the junk, every situation is a choice. You choose how you react to situations. You choose how people affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. The bottom line: It’s your choice how you live your life.”

 

I reflected on what Michael said. Soon hereafter, I left the Tower Industry to start my own business. We lost touch, but I often thought about him when I made a choice about life instead of reacting to it.

 

Several years later, I heard that Michael was involved in a serious accident, falling some 60 feet from a communications tower. After 18 hours of surgery and weeks of intensive care, Michael was released from the hospital with rods placed in his back. I saw Michael about six months after the accident. When I asked him how he was, he replied. “If I were any better, I’d be twins. Wanna see my scars?” I declined to see his wounds, but I did ask him what had gone through his mind as the accident took place.

 

“The first thing that went through my mind was the well-being of my soon to be born daughter, ” Michael replied. “Then, as I lay on the ground, I remembered that I had two choices: I could choose to live or …I could choose to die. I chose to live.”

 

Weren’t you scared? Did you lose consciousness?” I asked. Michael continued, “…the paramedics were great. They kept telling me I was going to be fine. But when they wheeled me into the ER and I saw the expressions on the faces of the doctors and nurses, I got really scared. In their eyes, I read he’s a dead man.” I knew I needed to take action.” What did you do?” I asked.

 

Well, there was a big burly nurse shouting questions at me,” said Michael. “She asked if I was allergic to anything. Yes, I replied.” The doctors and nurses stopped working as they waited for my reply. I took a deep breath and yelled, “Gravity.”

 

Over their laughter, I told them, “I am choosing to live. Operate on me as if I am alive, not dead.”

 

Michael lived, thanks to the skill of his doctors, but also because of his amazing attitude.

 

I learned from him that every day we have the choice to live fully. Attitude, after all, is everything. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.

 

Each day has enough trouble of its own. After all today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.
