All Nations from One Man

I am very careful when preaching and teaching not to allow political issues to infiltrate the conversation. After all, we don’t come together as the church to discuss politics, we come together to worship and study God’s Word. Politics has become an idol, even for many in the Lord’s body, that distracts from God and the church. No matter where you go, politics can easily become a divisive tool of the devil to put people against each other, and this even happens in the church. And so, I am always very careful about discussing politics, especially when we have come together to study the Bible.

But there are some things, Biblical issues that have been disguised as political issues, about which I cannot and will not remain silent. I grew up in the south, so I am no stranger to racist attitudes that so many in this part of the country still hold, but I never dreamed that I would see the kind of abominations that have plagued our country in recent weeks. If anything, I thought for sure that they would get better over time, but they have sadly gotten worse in recent years.

I am not in the business of deciding or discussing who is to blame for the terrible things that recently took place in Charlottesville, VA. I am not in the business of deciding whose comments on the events were either too harsh or not harsh enough. I am not in the business of deciding whether monuments and flags should be left up or taken down. I am not in the business of blaming any individuals for inciting these violent demonstrations because of what they have said or have not said.

As a Christian (not as a preacher but as a Christian) I am in the business of loving my neighbor. I am in the business of loving my neighbor by not repaying evil for evil, but by giving thought to do what is honorable in the sight of all (Rom. 12:17). I am in the business of loving my neighbor by doing everything within my power to live in harmony and peace with all people (Rom. 12:18). I am in the business of loving my neighbor by doing no wrong to my neighbor, thus fulfilling the law through love (Rom. 13:10). I am in the business of loving my neighbor by treating others the way that I want to be treated (Mt. 7:12). I am in the business of remember the words of Paul in Acts 17:26

"And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth"

No matter how you feel about the things that have happened in our nation’s past and no matter how you feel about those who are currently in the seats of government in our nation, there is no place in the Lord’s church for racism.   **Justin Sivley, Evangelist, Orangeburg Church of Christ
