The STRIPES of Healing
This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own. The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty. Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience. “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.
Issue 5: IDOL GOD IS THEIR GOD
I think I have said this a thousand times. The ‘DEVIL’ will show you who he is by his actions toward others. Let the ‘DEVIL’ be the ‘DEVIL’ please and in so doing all will be revealed unto you. You can’t make this stuff up. Let me speak about the new Georgia law and then we can all see how it lines up with the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It is a crime to give food and water to another human being standing in a voting line. Romans 12: vs 20 – 21, “Therefore IF THINE ENEMY HUNGER, FEED HIM; IF HE THIRST, GIVE HIM DRINK: FOR IN SO DOING THOU SHALT HEAP COALS OF FIRE ON HIS HEAD. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”
Now to Idol Gods. Republicans and evangelicals obviously aren’t following and certainly not living by the word of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Who say you then are they living by? The only other choice is the ‘DEVIL’. Let’s dissect and compare what God said and what these Republican evangelicals said. First God said if you say I’m your enemy then at least provide me food and water. Oh goodness, yes these Republicans evangelicals stated by the law they put into effect that Colored People are their enemy. Yes they seek to overcome good with evil. These evangelical Churches are not houses of worship to God, but houses of worship to the ‘DEVIL’. I bet you every last one of those White Men to include the Governor of Georgia are Pastors or Deacons wherever they go to worship their ‘God’.
Of course this is where law enforcement needs to step up as well. Those that wear the uniform and are of good will should be in their leaders faces telling these legislators your ‘unjust’ laws will not be enforced. I wrote a blog post long ago about ‘How Do You Degrade An Organization’. Dah! In the military I learned that an unlawful order you are duty bound to not follow. Oh, for those that don’t understand it means that you can’t hide behind a superior’s order and not be held to account. You’re still going to jail! You sit here and do something you know is unjust. That’s how you lose the public’s trust dummy!
Georgians, your leaders are degrading your great state. Stop looking at the skylines of your great cities because they’re getting dirty too, and sooner or later someone has to clean those windows too in order to see out of them clearly. Oh, one other thing about the so called divisions among us. Romans 16: vs 17-18, “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.”
We’re not children. Politics are the systems used to govern a just society. When some people start spewing this vile crap about politics can’t be discussed are calling you a ‘simpleton’. I also understand that humanity is still a work in progress, but humanity and all related facets of it shouldn’t be shown indifference by the citizens within it. Pay attention citizens of America to your governments. If you don’t like it then go through the proper procedure to change it. Let me be clear so everyone reading my journals know where I stand. I choose my elected officials by knowing what they stand for. I don’t support lunatics in clown attire with horns and bear spray injuring police while breaking windows and damaging the halls of government.
Now if everybody else want their ignorant relatives, friends and evangelical church members running the country, then by all means help them get elected. I’ll take an ‘Atheist’ that is moral and full of integrity living by a code any day over a so called ‘Evangelical’. Colored People I’m hoping will stop taking all these beatings and say enough is enough. Start running for public office and whatever you live by do the right thing by those you seek to represent.
