Tossed Like Waves

IMG_2523I have learned  in the last twenty-five years of my black life, those twenty-five years being saved by the grace of God, that the only real black experience is the experience that I have with God through His son Jesus, The Christ. When I was ignorant of my purpose in this life, which was to become an eternal life, I aligned myself with things I thought were purposeful, things that friends and society said were important. Even in my young Christian days I was still bound by some of those old thoughts and ways. As I have matured as a Christian, my desire is that my thoughts will become inline with what God says is right. If I continue to listen to the black self-proclaimed problem solvers, community leaders, professors, and worst of all, the Reverends, Pastors, Bishops, and so-called eloquent speakers like Louise Farrakhan, who are themselves still bound in their own ways an thoughts about their own black experiences, and the unfortunate experiences of our fore-fathers, I found I would never break free from the bondage of the past. I would always be defining my life by the experiences of those who have passed on long before me. Those who really in their time had a black experience that we today, who have never experienced the pain an sorrow of their time, can’t truly understand. It’s a shame that the blacks, or African-Americans, of today will hold on to, and walk around with a cheap on their shoulder about something that many of them have never experienced. The youth of today, even in the church, are being taught to carry a grudge over things they cannot even begin to understand. The “Black Lives Matter” movement, is a selfish movement that disregards all others because of the color of their skin. This new Black Experience has now become a racist experience, a separatist experience, where no other life matters except, Black Lives. Sounds to me like its time for repatriation. This movement when it is preached in the church is known as, “Black Liberation Gospel”, and what a pile of crap it is. It’s no more than black racism being disguised as some form of,” only for blacks Christianity”. Its time for the Black/African Americans in the church to get wise to the tricks Satan is playing on them. If we really want to know the truth, and to have a real life experience, no matter what color we are, we had better seek God and His righteousness. In the Holy Bible, in the book of James 1:5-8, the scripture states, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways”. Its one thing for the un-saved blacks in society to be unstable and “Tossed Like Waves” in the sea, but for the Christians, or professed Christians, this is unacceptable, no matter what color you are. The church has to set the example of being a stable minded people, a people that can pray and effect change in the world with their answered prayers. Its, (the churches) people, no matter what color they are, that cannot conduct themselves like the heathen, (un-saved), of the world. We must regard all men with respect, for God Himself is not a respect of persons. With God, all lives matter. So to you black christians that are caught up in this emotional mess, it would behoove you to seek God for wisdom about what you are doing, whether it is right, or wrong. I am sure you will find it is wrong, and you are being driven with the winds of an angry and ignorant society, and “Tossed Like Waves” in the sea of and untoward humanity. Paul The Apostle when speaking to the church of Corinth in his second epistle to them said, when enjoining them to separate themselves from evil associations, “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord”. Let us, the Blacks/African Americans in the church not be “Tossed Like Waves”, but let us be still like the storms that are calmed by the presence of Jesus, and live ourlives in peace with all humanity.
