–“We must live together as brothers or we will perish together as fools." -Martin Luther King Jr.
Can Christian get involved in racial hatred and rioting?
Psalm 11:5 New International Version (NIV)
“The Lord examines the righteous, but the wicked, those who love violence,
He hates with a passion."
“We must live together as brothers or we will perish together as fools." -Martin Luther King Jr.
“When we don’t teach our children the light of God’s love, we risk that our children and our country gets sucked into the darkness eventually." -Ingraham of FOX News
“If you are true Christian, then you must NOT use George Floyd as an excuse for violence, robbery, rioting, and looting." -Johnson and Pearl
‘My Family Is God-Fearing’: George Floyd’s Brother Gives Powerful Speech Demanding Peace
“If we were under the Old Testament, the murderers of George Floyd would get the death sentence, and not just 12-15 years in jail. At the same time, let’s not forget the fact that police officers are killed in the line of duty every year. Not all police officers are evil, and we must not throw out the baby with the bathwater. Christians can peacefully protest and demand racial equality, demand the murderers of George Floyd be put in prison for life, demand more black police officers to be paired with white police officers on the streets, and call for officers with over 3 complaints to be taken off the streets, etc. But it’s sinful and a hypocrite to return violence with even more violence, and demand justice while causing more injustice yourself. Life is short and fragile, as humans we must remember God will record and judge every sin, every hate, every violence, every lie, every fornication and adultery, and every blasphemy against God(Americans love taking God’s name in vain, like OMG..). Every person must repent and take up their cross and follow Jesus in order to have eternal life." -Johnson and Pearl
Proverbs 14:34 (KJV)
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."
MLK Jr.’s Niece Alveda King Says Her Uncle Refused to Promote Violence as a Solution, Calls for Repentance and Prayer
1 John 3:14-15 (KJV)
14 We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.
15 Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.
Exodus 20:15 “Thou shalt not steal."
Hebrews 12:14 (KJV) “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:"
“Whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord. We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown,” Lincoln wrote. “But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us. It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.”
