RIGHT WINGERS

Before the Jerry Springer show became more idiotic than it is nowadays, I saw a show he had hosted, with two right wing "Christian" groups as his guests, one white and the other a black one.

The similarity between the two groups was scary. Both believe they are right and there is no middle road, no comprise. They hate everyone who does not agree with them. Both groups are infamous in their treatment of women, as chattels or idiots, believing that a woman does not have rights, and her proper place is the kitchen, and that she, like children are to be seen and not heard.

Both these groups use the Holy Bible to prop up their racial hatred, believing that they have the divine right to hate and punish anyone who does not share their beliefs, way of life and/or belong to their racial group. They believe that they are the chosen few. They believe that Jesus belongs to their particular racial group, either white or black. And that God has given them permission to kill, maim and torture anyone who does not agree with them.

I wish both groups; black and white would go back to the truth of the Word of God. Jesus said that we should love our enemies, that we should forgive all who hurt us (seven times seventy times). Jesus encouraged us to turn the other cheek, but these right wing groups demand an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. I wonder if they actually say the Lord’s Prayer, and if they do, whether they actually pay attention to the words of this prayer.

What would their reaction would be if they actually realised that Jesus was a Jewish man and that He was olive-coloured; neither white nor black. (White groups particularly hate Jews) He had a Jewish heritage and had a Jewish background, and went through Jewish rites of passage. He was taught the laws and the prophets just like any other Jewish man of that period.

What would these groups do if they actually read the truth contained in the Bible? Or even more interesting, if they saw Jesus as He was 2,000 years ago, olive skinned and all? What are the chances that these groups would accept Him?

Yah right, I do not think so. He is not the Jesus they preach, He does not share their racial characteristics, but rather, He speaks about forgiveness, love, peace and freedom for all. He welcomes everyone, no matter what. He will neither destroy “unbelievers” nor will He hold grudges or punish anyone who does not fit into a false set of rules. Jesus is love, unhappy the people who do not see this.

Maranatha, Come Lord JESUS.
