Both Racial Hatred and Rioting Are Wrong

Updated: Jun 7, 2020

Murder made the Ten Commandments! Thou shalt not kill. That's God's opinion and law.

Not all policemen or bad, yet we know some policemen use the cover of a uniform to hide their bad deeds. Just think of the California East-side Rapist, a.k.a., Golden State Rapist, a former cop who was fired for shop lifting. Then he began raping and killing.

Hatred is the cousin to murder. Hatred leads to fighting and killing. It also kills the person who hates. It also destroys society. It models the Devil and not Jesus.

Looting and stealing are wrong, too. That activity is straight out of Satan's playbook. It hurts innocent people as well as the guilty people who loot and steal and destroy. No one wins.

Jews in the days of Jesus hated Samaritans. Some whites in America have hated African Americans throughout our history. It sometimes seems like all whites hate the blacks or that all blacks loot and start fires. That cannot be true, though. Think of all the whites (and freed blacks) who died to end slavery after President Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. And think of all the blacks who stand against and suffer from other blacks burning businesses and police departments. We all suffer when evil is let loose.

Let me encourage us all to examine our hearts, and to pray the prayer of King David from Psalm 139:23-24 (NASB):

23 Search me, O God, and know my heart;

Try me and know my anxious thoughts;

24 And see if there be any hurtful way in me,

And lead me in the everlasting way.
