Acts 17:26 – And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
In the year 2000, there was a play titled, No Niggers, No Jews, No Dogs. This American work of penmanship was written by playwright John Henry Redwood.
Then in 2014, playwright Tom O’Brien wrote the two-act play, No Blacks, No Dogs, No Poles.
I bring up these two plays because of the racial and social divide that is taking place right here in America in 2017.
As we start off this new week, I am constantly reminded that I am a child of God and that no weapon form against me shall prosper.
Yet, in my heart, I am sadden when I witness crowds of adoring Trump followers bask in his ignorant rants and speeches about building walls, seizing illegal immigrants and deporting them and denying entrance to Muslims because of where they live.
And all his speeches are what can be considered, “dog whistles,” to his voting base.
He has also continually gone after the press by questioning their credibility and labeling certain news outlets as being fake news.
But the greatest of his offenses is that this man is a blatant liar and these are the lies (which he tells continually) that he consistently throws out to the public that all Muslims are terrorists, all Mexicans are bad people and are illegally living here and all Minorities are poor, uneducated, living in urban areas and are dangerous.
To be honest, I have had my filled of Donald Trump and his divisive antics. He has put more toxicity in the atmosphere that it has polluted the hearts and minds of people living outside of America.
But Trump can’t take total responsibility for his irresponsible behavior. His followers are just as guilty for supporting and pushing his agenda…and I might say, with much glee.
A good friend who passed away a few years ago had a saying that resonates today.
“When you point one finger at someone…four fingers are pointing back at you.”
Americans who bear hate and discord will eventually pay a heavy price. I just pray that they abandon their over joy of demeaning and trying to destroy their fellow human-beings before it is too late.
We got to face the truth that hate is the cornerstone of sin.
Will Trump followers abandon this man of lies?
I doubt it. Even when the facts are in front of them they would prefer to believe his lies.
So for those who are not fooled by Donald Trump, I ask you to take time to pray.
And after praying, just think on this title for a few more moments.
No Mexicans, No Minorities, No Muslims.
It will just be a matter of time when the title will change to other races, ethnic groups, genders or those of different religions.
