Prejudice, But God

Sunday October 11, 2020

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

Racial prejudice has been around for almost all of the over 6,000 years of recorded human history. In every geographical region of the world, there has been and continues to be racial prejudice and injustice. Some people are prejudiced and dislike others because they are different. They dislike people because they have relocated to their region from a different region. Some will not assimilate with people because of their difference in religion, philosophical worldview, political affiliation, ethnicity as well as the color of someone’s skin. I certainly do not embrace racial prejudice or racial injustice in any form. I possess a strong Follower of Christ World View as to what is right and wrong and how everyone should be treated. Unfortunately, prejudice in any of its forms will not be eradicated on planet earth until Jesus Christ returns to establish His Father’s eternal kingdom. However, as followers of Christ we must anticipate a “But God” moment where the promises of God intersect with the prejudices of life. In Sacred Scripture we have such a moment.
