Race-based or prenatal–abuse is wrong

Let’s admit and renounce all injustice, past and present. Abuse is wrong, whether it’s race-based or prenatal.

The Bible says, “Humble yourself.” An observation: Refusing to wear a mask in a pandemic isn’t an act of humility. If we want Christian values, a great place to start is with this one: “Bless those who curse you.”

If masks are a “government overreach,” segregation was an atrocity and slavery a holocaust, and statues that honor either are hurtful. Racist behavior has been made illegal, but we haven’t yet transcended it and embraced loving, heart-felt equality.

Unlike a mask, skin color can’t be pulled off. To consider any color less acceptable is cruel.

I believe in the worth and equality of all human life, from the womb to the tomb, without class or supremacy. Planned Parenthood has been the major modern actor in voter suppression. Without it there would many million more registered voters.

Too often we humans want to justify, and categorize injustice against others, but we don’t want to let it touch our heart.

History: Too often we embellish what we like and ignore or deny what we don’t.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
