America’s biggest & cruelest lie

We need a clear eye
To see beyond
America’s big lie
About black skin color.

The biggest lie in American history–told on this continent for more than 400 years–declares Black people to be inferior. Both Black people and White people in America have been influenced and brainwashed by that old, old lie. America has lived with that big lie that has made its citizens believe that it’s okay to treat Black people with less respect than White people. That lie must be boldly renounced and continually refuted until it’s no longer believed by anyone! The horrific (mostly hidden) history of disrespect for Black people in America needs to be told openly and publicly rejected.

Black skin is a gift from God that Colonial America falsely declared to be an excuse for human trafficking and abuse. 400 years later we still struggle to overcome that lie. For many generations American churches supported the lie that black skin meant people were inferior. Some still do. Millions of Black Christians speak out against racism but far too few White Christians do.

Thinking less of people based on their skin color is a cruel game, a card that should have never been played. To react to the color of a person’s skin before you know the content of their character is racial bias. Americans of African ancestry deserve no less respect and no less justice than Americans of European ancestry.

People of all skin colors are equal. Avoid acting like they aren’t. No human life should be. brutalized. We should have no tolerance for brutality! Click here for a tool to help overcome America’s biggest lie.

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 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 in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia."
