The Final Solution

With all of the racial strife permeating this nation one must consider the source as well as the solution for this upheaval.
The devil comes to steal, devour, and separate. As long as he can focus our attention on hateful things we will forget the commandment of our Lord.


And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31English Standard Version ESV

“Great peace have those who love your law, and nothing can make them stumble.”  ‭‭Psalm‬ ‭119:165‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Loving God is not separate from loving our neighbor and it brings us and society great peace. We don’t get to pick who our neighbor is. When we quote this Scripture

“……nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord” ‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:38-39‬ ‭NIV‬‬ we must realize that this also means the separation of the races.

The refusal to love all people regardless of their skin color, their temperament, their personality, their social status, and or their level of education cannot be allowed to separate from the “love of God that is in Christ Jesus.”  Finally, we don’t love each other because social activists want or tell us to. We don’t invite people into our churches from various ethnic groups to prove a point. We don’t cross the racial divide to prove to society that it can be done. We don’t do it just because we want to be the first church in our racially divided community that is integrated.  We do it because Scripture says,

We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. 21 And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.1 John 4:19-21 ESV

Why do we do it? Walk in love for He is love!

    Yes! The final solution! I think a majority of folks are ready now…..those who cling to their beliefs in God no matter what. The demons or darkness as a friend calls it seems to be getting more and more involved in all that is going on as people hate and kill and treat others as ugly as we have seen in just the past few days. Our Lord certainly has the patience of Job as he watches the hatred and darkness that is happening to so many!

      We just have to be God’s people and love all people. Then the hatred goes away. The problem is that people don’t understand that concept very well. Love is not something we do…it is who we God!
