Christianity should be a sacred word, and only individuals pledge to live in God’s word should be permitted to use the word. Political religions should find another word to use to express hatred and dislike of people who do not look like them or have behaviors that are hated. Christianity and racism should not be used in the thought patterns. Racism and Christianity are incompatible beleifs or behaviors. Churches should be welcome centers for all who seek to follow the Christ principles such as loving God and loving your neighbor.When a man is more concerned with who has an abortion and show little or no concern about who is hungry, homeless, or hurting. Christianity is the foundation of compassion, and if you are in the business of hate, do not call yourself a Christian. All life is sacred, those who are already born and God’s children yet to be born.

Christianity A word Representing Love

         There is something wrong when the representative of the secular state and not the religious world, have to speak against injustice against immigrants, where are the Ambassadors of Christ love?

         Christianity the religion of love- attracts to its membership- the sons and daughters of Cain- to spread the words of hatred and racism – and as a final act- kill the essence of joy in the chosen of God. The Bible does not suggest a character for Cain or Abel- but the fact that the author found it necessary to include these two personalities suggests that good and evil are part of each man.

We all have a Cain and an Abel nature as part of our being- and must look out for indications that we are leaning towards the Cain part of our personality. Jesus tried to help man to understand the Abel part of his nature- and although it may appear as if our Abel nature is weak and trying to seek favor with that weakness.

What could Cain have done to avoid such a horrible out come with his brother- and what role did Able play in driving Cain to such anger and violence? These are questions seldom discussed in Bible study – perhaps there are few instructional guides to help men know themselves. It does appear as if religion plays the Cain role leaving no one to balance with the Abel role. Modern day Christianity is falling away from a Gospel of love and moving towards the attitude of removing those we do not like or who causes us pain.

There is something wrong with the children of Abraham and understanding of scripture about this man of God. The Bible teaches that the children of one woman are more sacred than the children of another woman. The Bible should not encourage the thought suggesting that conditions in life influence God’ appreciation and acceptance. Slave or free, men are all children of God. Sarah’s children are no more valued than Hagar’s sons. Did Abraham, the father of the major religions in the world, Judaism, Christianity and Islam set the seeds for racism and religious violence in the world?

If religion triggers world hatred, then it may be time for progressive societies to scale back on religion.

God and religion are not the same. The awareness of God and religion comes from different places in the human mind and spirit. God comes from the spirit and soul of man; religion comes from the mind of man. The mind of man creates god in his own image, and creates a religion to support that image.

The spirit created man in its own image, in its own image God created male and female. (Genesis 1: 27) The rest of Genesis describes the mind of man creating his own religions and beliefs, and the creation of hate, racism, violence and injustice, in the name of religious beliefs.

Man struggles until a new creation takes place with the birth of the Christ Child as a symbol of love, and the presence of God within. The answers will not come from the prophets of old.

Abraham and the prophets are flawed men doing their best in another time and another place. Man is flawed, but God is not, and God is still in charge. The prophets of old and scripture, demand retributions for past wrongs and sins, religion demands payment from the sons for the sins of the father.

Adam’s wrong can never be made right, our churches teach those wrongs over and over, and declare man a fallen sinner until eternity. Man needs his sin and punishment, without cause to hate, his life has no meaning and purpose.

There is however, the spirit of the living God, and it is time to discover what God is saying about His world, and His plans for its existence?

What is God saying about Israel killing Palestine children; what is God saying about Christians shooting children in America, and what is God saying about Muslims beheading men on live television in the name of hate and religion? Abraham’s children are behaving badly in the name of religion.

 

There is something wrong with Christianity. There is something wrong with Christians. Where are the church voices and traditional mainline clergy speaking out against this slow destruction of the religion? People calling themselves Christians have committed horrible acts against innocent people. There was nothing in their theology to cause any idea of wrong- doing; they followed teaching and doctrines of hate and violence.

This is dangerous, a doctrine of hate and violence at the core of the country was not in the vision of the founding fathers. When and where did America go off track?  Was America viewed as the fertile soil of dying people immigrating from dying lands and dying ideologies, or did the land, itself give birth to this hate? Was evil imported to America, or bred in America?  Is the DNA of America founded in hate? I think not, I think the people who made up the DNA of America, were the first victims of this disease imported from the old world. 

The churches of America are experiencing a transition in membership- where members can tolerate integration in schools and on jobs- but resent blacks and browns worshipping at the cross of the white Christ. Ministers are good preachers but are they good representative of the Christian message?

Few pastors give sermons on morality and Christ living. They can preach about heaven and the requirements for dying and entering into the resting place- but seldom is the topic of Christian living developed. In fact- the leaders of the church would run a preacher out of the church who attempted to discuss issues of loving God and accepting a neighbor with different skin and language style. The Bible suggests that God created man in His own image- the world present a picture of man creating God in his own image- and rejecting those- as unworthy – those who do not live up to that image.

Christians in America are identified by how many people and groups they hate in common- not by how many people they love. The religion of love calls together people who hate gays, immigrants, those who have had abortion- black and brown peoples – Catholics and certain mainline denominations – not following the rules of rejections.

The Scott’s-the Irish- the Native American (Indian) the African make up the DNA of this land and carry the moral, spiritual and cultural codes of who she is.  How did she become a land where millions joined Christian organizations like the KKK, dedicated to the punishment of immigrants, Jews, Italians, Catholic, Irish and African Americans?

There is something wrong with Christianity, when it took “ The Mafia” to bring down the evil KKK organization, individuals identifying themselves as Christian, killed to prevent government from working on behalf of people.

Christian hate groups appear to work hard to preventing procedures permitting immigrants from coming into the country; they work even harder to find methods of deporting. Christians are hard at work preaching hatreds towards gays and the different, and would resort, if permitted, use violent behavior against those whom they believe God considers unworthy.

Something is wrong with a religion that teaches and supports such behaviors. In the 20th century, professional people of the Christian faith planned emotional and physical hurt on others. Pastors and congregations joined together in acts and behaviors that did not cause any concern in their consciousness. Racism and Eugenics found a fertile ground in the Christian religion. What is it in Biblical scripture that lays the foundation for racism and Eugenics? Where is this hidden curriculum on racism found?

Which book of the Bible provides the On Ward marching orders for Christian soldiers of hate?  People found justification for slavery in the pages of this sacred text; where are the secret codes of racism, which converts people into doing bad things?  In the 20th century, the people who joined the KKK were not the dumb and the uneducated. 

The conversion was designed for Christians, people who thought they were doing the God thing. What is it in Christianity, which caused this conversion?  The RCC, the keeper of the flame of Christianity, put boots on the ground to stand with the oppressed. They were on the front lines of the Civil Right movements, and gave their lives in an act causing the downfall of the KKK. It is suggested that Federal, state and local government officials joined in with the KKK and marched in white robes and pointed hoods singing support songs of the Christian faith. Judges, lawyers, senators, policemen, and even a potential president of the United States were alleged to be part of this organization. (Source TV Documentary, Military Channel, The Mafia Vs The KKK).

The tentacles of this powerful organization reached every seat of power in the country, resulting in few if any convictions of any wrong doing on the part of any member of the KKK. There was something wrong with Christianity, and Black people became aware of the problem with white Christianity very early. Historical Black Churches filtered out messages of inferiority, and soul salvation without earthly accountability and took a holistic approach to Christian teachings.

Historical Black Churches were not hospitals for sinners, but educational institutions for living in an oppressed environment.  Mainline Traditional Protestant Churches, the Quakers and the RCC tended to be unaware that their separated curriculums added, through sermons, converting people off message. Two types of Christians were developing in the world (Germany) and the country. A political Christian, is a Christian in name only, and is caught up in social, economic, and ethnic beliefs in society.

A spiritual Christian, is a follower of Jesus and His teachings, the teachings of Jesus defines and influences his character and actions. They think Jesus before any action or behavior. Family culture and traditions are Jesus centered and hurting another person would be considered a mortal sin. They fight, but they fight against injustice and for the rights of family and others.

Northern states tended to separate religion from politics. Northern Christians tended to focus on the Gospel and teachings of Jesus, and the message of love and compassion. White Northern religion and Churches had long had the history of operating the Underground Railroad for slaves seeking freedom, and had open and welcoming doors for immigrants arriving to American shores.

While the KKK Christians were teaching hate and oppression of the different, northern Christians were involved in social justice issues. This is not to say the KKK was not able to reach its tentacles into northern communities and find welcome and new recruits. Racism was the religion of America and Christianity was the vehicle through which the message was spread.

Where are the voices of the majority of Christians, the silent majority, saying this is not Christian teaching? Good people of God stand with the oppressed, and place the army of God around His people. This is a good thing, but it is still time for Churches representing the Christian faith to take a stand and say, this usage of the word Christian will not be permitted in activities designed to hurt others.  Hurting others in thought, word or deed is not the Christian message, and not the message of Jesus the Christ. Christianity is a copy write by the people of God.
