Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

Jena Louisiana: The Black Christian Perspective

Posted by Job on September 21, 2007

Update: See The Multiculturalism Tolerance Diversity Movement Is Greco – Roman Paganism

Let us not deceive ourselves people: this case is all about race. Why are we so unwilling to admit that this is the case? I will provide the answer: worldliness. Professing Christians are so given over to worldliness in their minds, wills, and emotions that they have no knowledge of or sensitivity to spiritual things, and even when the Holy Spirit does try to reveal the true knowledge of the Godhead to them, they reject it because it conflicts with their flesh.

And that is why so many are so willing to deny the presence of racism. Because what is racism? Sin. Sin is disobedience to God, and God in the Incarnate Person of Jesus Christ told us to love God with all our heart, soul, and strength and to love our neighbor. Racism is failure to love our neighbor. It is as simple as that. Because of its simplicity we wish to reject it to follow after the high sounding things of the world, thinking that their complexity as articulated by men with peerless credentials obtained by their much learning gives it credibility. Well I am here to tell you today that there is no knowledge outside of or apart from the Holy God, and God makes things simple to confound the great and wise so that we that are humble enough to admit our ignorance before Him will be glorified. The simple truths that come from God we reject. The complex lies that come from Satan we accept. It has been that way ever since the Garden of Eden, when God gave Adam one simple prohibition: do not touch the tree of knowledge of good and evil or eat of its fruit. But the instant that Satan comes along with his subtle words and intellectual rationalizations, the fall of man occurred.

And this, dear Christians, is the real problem. You see, once we reject that racism is a spiritual problem, we reject the only spiritual solution for that problem, which is the gospel of Jesus Christ which brings the fruits of the Holy Spirit into the regenerated believer. The inevitable result is that we seek worldly solutions for spiritual problems. And that opens the door wide open for Satan. Consider this: how many times have you heard some self – righteous Christian utter the ridiculous statement “I cannot BELIEVE that racism is a problem today! Why can’t we just get over race and get past it?” That is the conservative political and cultural viewpoint.

Now take racism away and substitute another sin in its place. “I cannot BELIEVE that murder is a problem today! I cannot BELIEVE that lying is a problem today! I cannot BELIEVE that adultery is a problem today! I cannot BELIEVE that theft/gossiping/addiction is a problem today! Why can’t we just get over it, get past it, and stop seeing homosexuality? Just stop thinking in terms of abortion?” Don’t you see how utterly ridiculous that sound? For all Bible believing Christians know that people cannot just up and stop doing these things. Yes, even born again Christians will inevitably fall into sin. We know that we were born in sin and live in a world that is corrupt, wicked, depraved, under the rule of Satan, and is doomed to die. This world is so irredeemably tainted that even the return of Jesus Christ to rule the nations with a rod of iron for 1000 years, which some postulate will be a type of final Sabbath, will cleanse the filth of sin from creation.

Why? Because the Bible teaches that even after a thousand years of rule by the return of the Incarnate Word of God Himself, once Satan is loosed, it is only going to take a LITTLE SEASON for Satan to gather up the peoples of the world for an all out rebellion against God. It will be at that point when fire will come down from heaven and destroy that corrupted creation forever, and there will be a new heaven and a new earth. And only at that time will racism be defeated. And even then, it will only be defeated in the people that are resurrected to life and get to live in New Jerusalem, the second Eden. Those that will be resurrected to death will burn forever in the lake of fire, and you had better believe that a great percentage of them will still be racists and still blaming other races, ethnicities, cultures, etc. for their fate. So no, these people will never ever just get over and past race, just as they will never give up their sorceries, abominations, murders, rebellions, gossip and filthy communication, and lusts. Just as Christ will never leave the righteous, iniquity will never leave the sinner, not even in the lake of fire.

And yet we reject that knowledge, and it is not just the right. The Christian left partakes in this too. Rejecting the ways of God for the evils of the world, they make and promote the lie that man can cleanse himself of this evil. They claim that through psychology, education, and full immersion in media brainwashing a person can be freed of racism! If that is not humanism, the notion that man can improve himself with by his own hands, what is? And what is worse, whenever they run up against recalcitrants that refuse to bow to their forced conversions, they without fail turn to the power of the state. Of course, in doing so, they knowingly trade a lesser evil for a greater one. They trade the individual sin of one racist for the collective sin of government racism. They exploit the the localized racism of certain communities to expand the very same government that has always been the chief source of racism – as well as hatred for the poor and the righteous – in any society. How ironic that the Reverend Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are in Jena, Louisiana telling their black charges that the very same state has persecuted black people from the moment that it brought us over here as slaves will deliver us?

Even if Jackson and Sharpton were not part of the same left that supports atheism, homosexuality, abortion, and a multitude of other abominations it would still be self – evident that they are false preachers lacking the Holy Spirit of Truth because they daily bear witness from within themselves the LIE that good can come from evil, that light would come from darkness. If these two men were true preachers of righteousness, they would preach to their black charges and to people of ALL RACES that the state is part of the anti – Christ system that nailed Jesus Christ to the cross and will one day be used by the beast, the man of sin, to inflict upon the church the greatest persecution that has ever been seen! Or what, black Christians, have you not yet been told that the same state that you petition for voting rights, fair treatment from police (yes, I have been stopped for driving while black) and anti – discrimination measures (yes, I have faced discrimination while seeking employment and on the job) will one day be placing you in concentration camps and demanding that you renounce Christ or else face the guillotine? And for all of you who are looking for the pre – tribulation rapture to come and take you away from all of these Republican Confederate flag wavers that hate rap music and won’t give black quarterbacks their due? Read your Bible people: Revelation 13:1-8 says that the anti – Christ will make war against and overcome the saints. How will that happen if the church is raptured away and is safe in heaven? Why did Jesus Christ tell us to head for the hills in Matthew 24 (start in verse 15) when the abomination of desolation takes place if we will already be raptured then or shall be shortly thereafter? No, a lot of you will follow the beast and the false prophet precisely because he will offer a worldly carnal answer to your racial grievances that you never bothered to give over to Jesus Christ. “O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer?” That is talking about YOU, Christian, which is why you need to stop listen to some of these old hymns every now and then.

You white conservatives that daily commit idolatry by worshiping the state are cut from the same cloth, by the way. WHAT ON EARTH DOES YOUR AMERICAN FLAG, THE SYMBOL OF JUST ANOTHER NATION ON THIS FALLEN SINFUL EARTH, HAVE TO DO WITH JESUS CHRIST? WHY IS IT IN YOUR CHURCHES? WHY DO YOU SUPPORT A POLITICAL AGENDA THAT COERCES CHILDREN TO PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO IT IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS? DON’T YOU KNOW THAT WHEN GOD SENDS FIRE DOWN FROM HEAVEN ALL OF YOUR LITTLE AMERICAN FLAGS AND STATUE OF LIBERTY IMAGES WILL BE BURNT UP? HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED THAT IN THE NEW HEAVEN AND THE NEW EARTH THERE WILL BE NO AMERICAN FLAGS OR ANYONE THAT WANTS OR PAYS ANY RESPECT TO THEM? WE HAVE NO KING BUT JESUS CHRIST AND ONLY HE SHOULD YOU SERVE! How many of you are so unwilling to acknowledge the sin that abounds in this nation merely because it is what you worship and is where your heart truly is?

So yes, this Jena, Louisiana case is all about racism. The Jena 6 committed a vicious criminal assault against another person because he was white. They were charged by a white prosecutor and Mychal Bell was convicted by an all – white jury with a white judge presiding of attempted murder because they were black. Not a few whites, especially in that area, are defending the charges and conviction because the criminals are black. And not a few blacks are demanding that these criminals not receive any legal sanction whatsoever because of the race of the victim and perpetrators and the circumstances surrounding the case.

Well let me tell you something people who support an attempted murder charge: in order for something to be attempted murder, there has to be clear evidence of a premeditated attempt to kill someone! Merely assaulting someone in a manner that MIGHT cause their death is felony assault and battery. Even if a gun or knife is used (as opposed to a tennis shoe) it is assault with a deadly weapon. Even if a spur of the moment decision to kill someone is made, it is only manslaughter. No premeditation, no murder, no premeditation, no attempted murder, and it is as simple as that. The prosecutor knows this, the judge knows this, the jury was instructed of this, and virtually anyone who has ever watched a cop drama on TV knows this! Further, of all the people that get beaten and battered senseless or even stabbed or shot, how often does it result in attempted murder charges? If such were sought even 1% of the time, our legal system would be hopelessly clogged, and we wouldn’t have enough prisons to hold all the men – and women – that are serving the 25 year sentences. And yet so many people are consenting to this unrighteousness while pointing the finger of hypocrisy at the unrighteousness of others.

Meanwhile, you have not a few blacks demanding that nothing at all be done to these boys merely because it is alleged that a similar assault by multiple white males against a lone black males was perpetrated. Since the white people got off, they say, let the black males get off too. Do these people not know that where the old covenant calls for an eye for an eye, the new covenant says to turn the other cheek?

This process of tit for tat and continual retribution will only result in all lawbreakers going free and more evil and disorder in the society. If equal justice is what these people want, why not demand that both the white and black assailants be charged with simple battery? Simple: these people are not interested in justice. Rather, they are merely interested in establishing the concept that because of the presence of racism, poverty, and state oppression blacks should not obey the law. Their zeal in this regard is so great that they are willing to allow those that they are allege are white racist criminals go free despite a similar beating of a black person. Their very campaign to prevent having the perpetrators of a black racist crime accountable for their actions depends on having the perpetrators of a white racist crime going unpunished. This baby – splitting logic that only serves to prove that evil only begets evil can come only from a depraved fallen worldly mind.

And do not forget that Satan is truly behind this, manipulating it to his own ends. Everyone who casts aside God to join this madness on one side or another is contributing to the injustice, hatred, division, rebellion, fear, and outright SIN in this world. All this does is create a climate where everyone will be oh so willing to accept anyone or anything that promises peace and unity, and they will do so at all costs. The forces of anti – Christ are so bold that they are not even trying to hide. The civil rights leaders are making the fantastically ridiculous lie Jena, Louisiana symbolizes why there are so many blacks in jail. Our failed war on drugs (which should be illegal, but its enforcement should not be an excuse to exploit and oppress the poor and seize private property for the state) notwithstanding, these people are actually demanding that victims of black violent criminals, who almost always are also black, not receive any justice, and that no effort be made to prevent them from hurting other innocent people. Even criminals benefit from law enforcement, because the more criminals there are in the streets and the more there is a general state of disorder and chaos, the result is CRIMINALS KILLING EACH OTHER. Or have we forgotten the all out gang warfare in our streets during the 70s and 80s?

But ultimately, it is not about justice or opposing the sin of racism but exploiting this issue to increase state power and even more wickedness. Exhibit A: homosexuals are exploiting this incident to promote their own sinful agenda. Exhibit B: the media is using this case to show why we need more poverty programs. And you have black activists thrilled that this case is galvanizing the black community. Al Sharpton called it the rebirth of the civil rights movement for the 21st century. I heard a host on the black talk radio station joyfully proclaim that she was so happy that so many young blacks were involved, and maybe this will stop the previous black generation’s criticisms of their not taking up the fight. It is obvious that these folks do not care about true justice. I am reminded of how the parents of a young black man murdered in a New York hate crime were appalled at how Jesse Jackson in told them to their face in their own home how he was going to exploit this incident to help David Dinkins beat Ed Koch in the upcoming mayoral election.

Folks, I really couldn’t make this up if I tried, but it is true. This case is proof that following after the ways of the world can only lead to evil. This case proves that we need God, because true justice can only come from Him. Darkness cannot produce light, and a sinful world cannot produce righteousness. You need God, and God wants you. Why not answer His call? Follow The Three Step Salvation Plan right now. Do it now, for not only is tomorrow not promised, but the next hour or minute is not.
