Churchified - Racism

Racism is not about people, it is about act and attitudes of people. The corruption of racism must be healed, the institutional structures must be dismantled, but the people who apply racism must be seen as flawed human beings, as flawed as their victims. For as a Christian I believe that all have sinned and fallen short of the grace of God. None can claim perfection, holiness, and honour.
Humanity is made up of Men and Women, Black, White, Brown, and Yellow or mixed races of every shade pigmented or albino in the world that is not perfect.
John 8:7 And as they continued to ask him, he stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.”
The abusers around the world feel pain when abused. The victim of today may have been an aggressor or predator towards another. In every situation, the truth will stand that none can claim perfection in this world nor can he/she be defined as the holy victim. The world is not being called to stand for th…

Our Call from God

We are seeing a call to live out love, faith and hope in a world of institutional structures that speak hate, abuse and anger.
As the United States of America dares to peal off the bandage of compromise and silence that has kept racism underground but very much alive and growing. The world watches as things unfold and a new era is begun, through a revival of conscience and principles and a willingness to be. Racism has haunted international relations and development dynamics in its various forms, from the rise of nationalism, the reflection of colonialism and imperialistic dispossession a people of identity, name, culture and dignity. These atrocities which once publicly where part of institutional policy are now privately the foundation of national and in part international culture that is used to limit, denigrate and justify the murder of people of colour. The murder of George Floyd is only part of the killing that occurs the destruction of the flesh. The more critical annihilation …

Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are - Benjamin Franklin The failure of society to feel public outrage at the abuse of another is enabled the increasing rise in violence against the weak and disenfranchised in our society. The most tragic silence is found in the Christian community that during the past decades of attacks against blacks and women has retain its private closest attitude of prayer without action or words.1 John 3:17 But if anyone has the world's goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God's love abide in him?We see pictures of children and how they at a young age do not act out of bias and stereotyping . We see the evidence that hate is learned and once learned and encouraged is difficult to uproot. Hate is an attitude taught and ingrained by the community they live in. So what leads to the acceptance of hateful acts’ by a community from an individual in their group. Dial…

Dispossessed

Romans 13:10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
In the past few days the world has been witnessing an increase in documented violence the murder of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and many others is the manifestation of institutional dispossession. The capacity to view the life of any individuals as valueless and their death as minor is not only a crime but a social tragedy. In all the cases highlighted instances of tragedy happened because of ingrained attitudes that approved of dispossession. The individual was label a criminal by their race and location removing their voices and rights before the facts where known, once labeled as unworthy of care and notice any action was validated in the eyes of the perpetrators.
The attitudes that seen on camera in the various cases were of the conquerers towards the unworthy, the powerful towards the weak and the tragic reality is that while repeated outcries follow those with the capaci…
