Dr. Alexander was completely brain dead when he had his NDE. But I guess you’re smarter than he and other’s who would bet their life on the authenticity of their encounter. Since you seem to have it all figured out where can I attend the Church of hopelessness and endless sorrows. Forgive my facetiousness and May the God of Love and hope reveal himself to your empty soul. This verse states that numerous laws of the old testament where against Gods wishes, as such the prophets allowed it not because God did but because the peoples hearts were hard.

The Old Testament Seminary Teacher Manual teaches that marrying a Philistine was against the will of God. In The Book of Mormon one group of lighter-skinned people was commanded by God not to intermarry with a darker-skinned group. Becoming more like Christ sets us up for interactions with others that reflect love, healing and wholeness. I’d say that’s a step in the right direction when it comes to dating well.

An Obedient Church Deals with Disobedience

And in 2012, the sixteen-million-member body elected its first African-American president to preside over an encouragingly diverse community. Compare the diversity in the pages of Christianity Today to that of Sports Illustrated or Rolling Stone. Then his father and his mother said unto him, Is there never a woman among the daughters of thy brethren, or among all my people, that thou goest to take a wife of the uncircumcised Philistines? And Samson said unto his father, Get her for me; for she pleaseth me well.

Among women, similar shares of blacks (28%) and whites (27%) say their gender has set them back. Young white adults are more enthusiastic about Black Lives Matter than middle-aged and older whites. Six-in-ten of those ages 18 to 29 say they support it, compared with 46% of whites ages 30 to 49, 37% of whites ages 50 to 64, and 26% of whites 65 and older. Young whites are also somewhat more likely than their older counterparts to say that the Black Lives Matter movement will be at least somewhat effective in the long run (47% vs. 37%, 32% and 26%, respectively).

Colorism is a challenge for many Black women as well.

Utah State University, Merrill-Cazier Library, Special Collections and Archives Division.

John 2:1-25

Masters, treat your bondservants justly and fairly, knowing that you also have a Master in heaven. Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving. At the same time, pray also for us, that God may open to us a door for the word, to declare the mystery of Christ, on account of which I am in prison— that I may make it clear, which is how I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the best use of the time. And I will make boys their princes, and infants shall rule over them. And the people will oppress one another, every one his fellow and every one his neighbor; the youth will be insolent to the elder, and the despised to the honorable.

This discrimination and the enslavement of Blacks only was made on the basis of what has become known as the “sin of Ham” or “the curse of Canaan.” Some said Blacks were inferior because they bore the “mark of Cain.” For example, through the late 1700s, the Rev. William Graham was rector and principal instructor at the Liberty Hall Academy, now Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia. Every year, he lectured the senior graduating class on the value of slavery and used the Bible in his defense of it.

That is why He is God, and we aren’t–and that is probably a good thing. God is not a black-and-white, court-of-law kind of judge handing out judgements based on collected evidence and police files. He is the ultimate judge, and He knows us from before we are born. We have never been shown that God is a god that takes one look at our biggest sin and then either free iwantu condemns us to Hell or welcomes us to Heaven. His final judgement and ‘decision’ will be one that fully encompasses and embraces all those gray areas in life that we try to navigate. We shouldn’t be surprised that white Christianity is willing to sacrifice black and brown bodies for the cause of their own personal salvation and relationship with Jesus Christ.

God only meddled in man’s experiences only a few times in 6,000 years for these reasons. Jesus didn’t come to physically save people from tyranny and oppression in the meridian of time. He came to teach repentance, the Gospel and give unto us the New Covenant to love one another. To be fair, the slave trade was not just conducted by white Christians . Many Muslims, blacks, and people of other races and creeds took part in the slave trade , and in many parts of the world, slavery continues .

The black tribes sold the slaves to Portuguese slave traders who were Catholic and not Christian. If you don’t know the difference between Catholic and Christian, well that is something else you need to look up. As far as slavery in the Bible, yes, it existed, as did incest, murder, and a whole laundry list of other things, however that doesn’t mean that it was okay.

A loving Christian couple may accommodate well to many kinds of differences between themselves. However, there are cultural contexts where interracial marriage poses significant barriers to acceptance of the marriage and/or the children of the marriage. At each age level, blacks’ show greater approval of interracial marriage compared with whites. Still, older blacks show less support for black-white unions than younger blacks do.

As recently as 1994, less than half of Americans approved. The vast majority of whites and an even larger majority of blacks approve of interracial marriages. Older Americans — regardless of race or ethnicity — are less inclined to support interracial marriages than are younger Americans, but still, older Americans show majority support. The remainder of this report examines in greater detail the public’s views of the state of race relations and racial inequality in the U.S. Chapter 1 looks at some key demographic and economic indicators where blacks have made progress or lag behind other racial and ethnic groups.
