The back of this regular postcard size (4"x6") tract says:
Racism has a long and nasty history of hatred, violence, prejudice, antagonism, death and bigotry. Throughout history, people have been treated unfairly and improperly, based upon their skin color, lineage and/or disability. Yet, people have no control over what their skin color is, who their parents are or what disability they may have.
Should people really be treated unfairly and with hatred and violence, due to something that they have no control over? Of course not! God is just and holy. God doesn’t play favorites. God is the ultimate standard of right and wrong.
1 Peter 1:17 says, “And if you call on the Father, who without partiality judges according to each one’s work, conduct yourselves throughout the time of your stay here in fear...”
James 2:8-9 says, “If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’ you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.”
Simply put, RACISM IS SINFUL. If you are a racist, then you are not being loving towards your neighbor and you are a sinner. If you are treating someone unfarily, for the way they are born, then you are being partial and hateful.
When the Bible talks about different “people groups”, it never uses the word, “races”. It uses words like tribes, tongues and nations. There are differences between people groups, based upon their culture (tribes), their language (tongues) and where they are born and raised (nations). God never notes differences between people based upon their skin color, lineage and/or disability.
God is the one who decides who we are born to, when we are born, where we are born, what color our skin is, etc. We have no control over such things. God is a God of variety. He loves all the uniqueness throughout His creation. Yet, we are all part of the same human “family”, through Adam and Eve.
Acts 17:26-28 says, “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.”
Acts 17:30-31 says that God “commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”
If you are a racist, or a sinner AT ALL - fornicator, drunkard, homosexual, liar, thief, etc. - YOU NEED TO REPENT. Jesus shed His red blood, as He died to save you. Then, He rose from the grave on the third day. YET, He will judge the wicked - those who refuse to repent of all of their sins and follow Him in obedience. God offers you mercy or judgment - It’s your choice to make. Don’t be a fool. Give up racism and ALL OF YOUR SIN, Trust in Jesus and Follow Him! Seek the Lord! He is near! www.RepentOrPerish.org
