White Privilege Narrative Danger

Anarchists are exploiting the white privilege narrative. A fake meme has emerged which claims that there is no hope for minorities because of white privilege. The charge itself can be debated, but the deadly ricochet from the accusation is worse. It is like telling your son: “You lazy good for nothing. You’ll never amount to anything!” Words matter.

FAITH – Christians recognize those words as a curse that can ruin the child’s future. The same is now happening on a massive scale against minorities in the US. It is the opposite of faith and hope. Telling folks they can never advance because of white privilege, is a damnable lie. It is using the words of the devil himself. Jesus declared that all things are possible with God. Faith does not accept limitation. Our nation was built on Biblical faith for everyday challenges. Blessings come from God through walking in His ways of obedience and faith. It actually works. It matters what you believe. If you believe anything is possible with God, you are more likely to succeed. If you believe you can’t win because life isn’t fair or you are a victim of your race or economic status, you will probably fail.

HOPE – What is the American dream? Is it a big house and a fancy car with lots of money? Or, is it believing that in the freedom, liberty and opportunity afforded by this great country, anyone can achieve just about anything they work hard to reach? That is the American dream.

President Obama’s election not only validated that dream, his proclamation of hope and change inspired millions with new faith in the American dream.He used the powerful slogan: “Yes we can!” Ironically, eight years later, we see this ominous cloud of dis-belief. “Yes We Can” was a message of hope, but the fruit was hopelessness

The white privilege narrative is manipulated to convince minorities that there is no hope for them! “No, you can’t!” How utterly contradictory this is to the historical evidence of the Obama win. It is a lie. If blacks cannot make it, how did President Obama, Justice Clarence Thomas, Senator Tim Scott, Ben Carson, actors, lawyers, musicians and athletes by the thousands succeed?

America is not perfect, but it is still the one place where the lowliest person can have a real hope to advance with hard work and faith in God.

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe all things are possible to him who believes.” Mark 9:23

But Jesus looked at them and said, “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for with God all things are possible.” Mark 10:27

Justice or Mercy?

Pope Francis Call for Climate "Justice"

Pope Francis Call for Climate “Justice”

As I begin my last day in Sandpoint, Idaho, my meditations are on justice. Several times on this ministry trip I asked the folks a compelling question about justice. Before I get to that, let me explain why it is on my mind and my spirit.

Many of the radical Muslim organizations use “justice” in their titles, such as Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood. Their political name is: Freedom and Justice Party. Even though it was banned in 2014 it still functions as you can see from their website. They call for social justice.

Marxists also call for social justice. Liberation Theology also uses the term. The racial demagoguery rising from the Ferguson riots and other alleged “police brutality” incidents is known for demands for “justice. The perception of injustice is sown into the masses with each new event.

Even the Pope has joined the clamoring for social justice. Today it’s reported that he has come out for the global climate change movement:

POPE FRANCIS ENCYCLICAL CALLS FOR CLIMATE ‘JUSTICE,’ FORMATION OF GLOBAL POLITICAL BODY

While his ominous call for a global political body is red meat for prophecy buffs, I want to stick with my theme of justice. The Pope is calling for climate “justice”.

Why is justice such a buzz word in today’s news? It is because it is effective in stirring up people who feel they are “victims” of injustice. Yet, we are living in the most amazing era of history. The poor people in America have more of life’s creature comforts than the rich of earlier generations of world history. I am not denying suffering, but want to move the conversation to a new level. Here is the questions I have asked folks in my meetings:

Question #1 – Who wants God to give you exactly what you deserveAnyone who reads the Bible, understands this most basic truth:

“For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard.” Romans 3:23 NLT

I ask people to raise their hands if they demand this justice for God to give them what they deserve. Nobody raises their hands when I put it that  way. Then, I ask a second question:

Question #2 – Who wants God to give you MERCY? Now we see the real choice. While the mob is fired up to demand justice, we know what we really need is God’s grace, His mercy, and His love. How ironic that Satan has managed to get people fixated on demanding justice. Thank God for sending His son, Jesus, to die in our place for our sins that we might have forgiveness and the joys of eternal life! Justice is not the Gospel message. Forgiveness, by the mercy of God, is our cry!

“But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” Romans 5:8 NLT

“For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.” James 2:13 NKJV

While it is certainly true that God is perfectly just, His mercy is more important to us. I don’t want what I deserve! Have mercy on us, O God.
