It Couldn't Be Clearer
It Couldn't Be Clearer

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32 KJV

In this environment we are living in, we must face a simple truth that some people do not want to know the truth.  Why, because the truth sometimes hurts.

God has commissioned His preachers to preach His infallible Word, not a word that tickles the ears, but a word that will set men and women free. And to that, we must embrace the central theme of the Bible: Love, Peace, Unity, and Justice.”

It is my opinion that the Evangelical realm doesn’t want to embrace these four words.  While the majority of Black Christian have embraced these words with their whole heart and mind.

Now, these words found in the scriptures can stand on their own merit.

  • Love: This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister. 1 John 3:10 NIV; And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 1 John 3:23 NIV;  Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen. 1 John 4:20 NIV
  • Peace: For God is not a God of disorder but peace—as in all the congregations of the Lord’s people. 1 Corinthians 14: 33 NIV;  Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness, no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14 NIV
  • Unity: How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. Psalms 133:1 NIV;  As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. (2) Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. (3) Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. Ephesians 4:1-3 NIV

Justice: “So I will come to put you on trial. I will be quick to testify against sorcerers, adulterers, and perjurers, against those who defraud laborers of their wages, who oppress the widows and the fatherless, and deprive the foreigners among you of justice, but do not fear me,” says the Lord Almighty. Malachi 3:5 NIV

God doesn’t see black or white, blue, or red states, He sees all of us who claim to be saved as His children.
