There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.Galatians 3:28
Just when you thought people couldn’t get any lower, They come after our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Writer and activist Shaun King announced Monday that he supports the destruction of statues that depict a white Jesus.
King, who has been an outspoken supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, tweeted his remarks on Monday. He noted that historians believe Jesus likely had the appearance of people who typically lived in the Middle East during his time, rather than the white man who is often depicted in Christian iconography.
The last I heard, No one person can describe the exact earthly appearance of Jesus Christ. His appearance has been depicted in many ways from nation to nation as with the Chinese depiction of Jesus (First Row Centre)
His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fireRevelation 1:14
It isn’t that Christianity is suddenly getting political. It is that Christians are finally starting to fight against true injustice, And those influenced by social movements, world systems, and culture rather than The Bible (@ElijahSchaffer)
The followers of Christ are one of the most persecuted people in the world…
“The main impact of such genocidal acts against Christians is internal displacement and exodus. Christianity now faces the possibility of being wiped-out in parts of the Middle East where its roots go back furthest. In Palestine, Christian numbers are below 1.5 percent; in Syria the Christian population has declined from 1.7 million in 2011 to below 450,000 and in Iraq, largely through the ‘ethnic 37 cleansing’ of ancient Christian communities from the Nineveh Plains, Christian numbers have slumped from 1.5 million before 2003 to below 120,000 today. Christianity is at risk of disappearing, representing a massive setback for plurality in the region. It is that plurality which has been a key for security and stability in the region for hundreds of years.” (source)
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.
If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.John 15:18-27
Imagine the absolute outrage if any other religion was targeted like Christianity is.
