There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
When you remove Jesus Christ from the equation, you throw away the best solution for mankind’s struggle against the evils of this world. When the culture dictates and identifies people by the color of their skin rather than the quality of their character, the ugliness of human nature abounds.
Throughout world history, people have pursued political utopias with an “us against them” attitude which has led to the ruin of more people than any other ideology. Lies, destruction, and death is the usual outcome of a human heart bent on an unbridled passion for power and domination. When one ethnic group disrespects another because of a blindness to superiority or a fearfulness of differences, conflict will always remain.
We have witness people like Hitler, Mao, Stalin, and others who pursued ideologies of racism to further their personal ambitions. Before long, they manipulate people building large governmental power bases where citizens eventually loss their freedom in exchange for servitude to the state.
Jesus Christ has already implemented the solution for racism. However, when people fail to accept His accomplishment and solution to the problem, the ugliness of human nature will continue to lead toward a destructive path.
The human heart is a mixture of good and evil. The ideal is to fully express the good and find ways to restrain the evil. The Bible reveals evil will never be fully eradicated until the return of Jesus Christ when Satan is locked up. But evil can be minimized; not through violence, harassment, and lies, but through the acceptance of following a proven leader who has already demonstrated the way by walking the talk.
Yes, his name is Jesus Christ. When you study his life, his claim of kingship, and his approach toward working with others, you quickly find a person worthy to follow. In fact, you find a person who revolutionized the world without an army, country, or political support.
When you discover who he truly IS, his purpose of being born, living, and suffering for you and I, plus how you fit into the grand scheme of everything he has planned out, you quickly realize He is the solution for all mankind. He dealt with racism in his time and created the means to unite the entire human race under one, free government with unlimited potential for all to flourish.
We are not speaking about joining a Christian religion, but a relationship with the living Triune God. The Incarnation of Jesus Christ is a theological concept which explains the common ground we all have in Him. He connects all of us in Him and with each other.
