Racial Discrimination

Racial Discrimination Racial discrimination Comes directly from Satan; Finds lack of love its basis For the evil one, a mighty baton. To love our brothers and sisters Is requested of us, Regardless of our color, We all belong to Jesus. As I see a scene in heaven, I am quite amazed, White folk are in the minority— Any sense of superiority completely erased. On earth it is so different, Where whites are given preference; Think themselves superior— To God, an act of ignorance. As I look around me further And speak to many there, I find few with higher education; And for wealth they didn’t care. It was not a crown they’d hope for, Or a place of honor or distinction. They just wanted to see Jesus; His love, their natural demonstration. Racial Discrimination Is purely based on pride. But God sees all as equal; Salvation to none denied. Pride is the sin That kept many out of heaven; It was not their color or education, Once falsely considered a privilege given. Copyright © Maureen LeFanue 2012 www.maureenlefanue.com

    yes, all are created equal. thank goodness we have that in our constitution, but how long before it was honored! My hubbie is on the road and experiencing reverse discrimination in the state that he is in right now. It's a strange world!!
