11-15-2016 Salvation From Racism
The word “skin” is not even used in the New Testament. No one can truthfully say “the Gospel of Jesus Christ is racist!” “White” describes clothing of Jesus (Mark 9:3) or angels (Acts 1:10), but not skin! “An angel of the Lord” had a face “like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow” (Matthew 28:3 NKJV), so Jesus’ appearance to His churches said He had “head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow” (Revelation 1:14 NKJV). Everyone who lives their lives avoiding or hating certain skin colors always “have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faith. These you ought to have done, without leaving the others undone” (Matthew 23:23 NKJV). Isaiah knew God had “lovingly delivered my soul from the pit of corruption, For You have cast all my sins behind Your back” (Isaiah 38:17 NKJV).
