Christians and Prejudice

As Christians your claim to love the Lord with all of our hearts and would never do anything to disappoint Him or put Him down or insult Him. If that is the case then why are so many of us calling them names all the time although we may not be aware of it.

Growing up as a Quaker I was always taught that everybody is a child of God and deserves our full respect regardless of their color, appearance or lifestyle. If somebody behaves in a negative manner we must realize that it is not the person but the actions. If somebody lives in a way that we disagree with and is a lifestyle we may hate it is not the person him or herself. If you studied history about the time in this, country when slavery was permitted it was the Quakers that were mainly responsible for the Underground Railroad, that was able to get thousands of African-Americans to freedom.

Whenever we call somebody a name, put them down, or make fun of them in any way we may not realize it but we are doing the same thing to God. Matthew 25:40 says “Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, {even} the least {of them,} you did it to Me”. (NASB) The next time we think about calling anybody a name whether racial or not we should think about this passage from the Bible and what it means.

I heard an expression that says “Our Lifestyle May Be the Only Bible That Some People Read”. We need to be very aware, that as Christians, we are to be an example of Christ. Once we claim to be Christians and people know about it, we then represent the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We will never win souls to Christ or let people know the joy that Christians can have if we are mean or disrespectful.
