THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Put negative energy into learning the truth

Some people believe that Jesus was their race and color, that others really are inferior. Say that’s true, but your actions toward others — do they honor or embarrass Jesus?

The Bible says, “He who does not love does not know God, for God is love” (1 John 4:8), God “desires all men (not just some) to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Timothy 2:4), “God does not show partiality but accepts people of every nation who fear him and do what is right.” (Acts 11:34; Romans 2:1-11)

“Do to others as you want them to do to you (Matthew 7:12), “Love enemies” (Matthew 5:44), “Judge not” (Romans 14:10), “God’s eyes are in every place, watching the evil and the good.” (Proverbs 15:3)

Many, falsely informed, believe one race is cursed. “Cursed?” If everyone knew what race and color Jesus really was, many would be shocked, especially non-Jews “who claim they’re Jews and aren’t, but rather are members of the assembly of Satan.” (Revelation 2:9)

Because of (false) pride or having no sense of morals or backbone to have their own individuality, many follow “the world.”

Instead of acting ugly, slyly or openly, gossiping about, laughing at, or acting hateful toward others like you’re better, like a smirking racist, put that negative energy to positive use by finding out the truth (only ignorant, crowd-following, brown nosing idiots won’t).

Whether or not the truth is believed, accepted or liked, it will still be the truth.
