You worship Obama like he was Jesus, you will get your reward you want WHITE GENOCIDE because whites make up the MAJORITY CHRISTIAN POPULATION, http://whitegenocideproject.com/
I was addressing "white" thought.
Now for myself, there is no barrier in the Body of believers. For those crucified with Christ, there is neither Jew, Greek, etc. Men are either Christians or sinners in need of saving grace.
In the world there is white and black, etc.
I am sorry to hear that your identity is in your whiteness and not in the one new man.

Jim 'Liberal' Lincoln, how did you react when your idol, Obama, met with the pope? Let me refresh your memory, "Holy Father, your visit not only allows us, in some small way, to reciprocate the extraordinary hospitality that you extended to me at the Vatican last year. It also reveals how much all Americans, from every background and every faith, value the role that the Catholic Church plays in strengthening America." B. Obama, from https://obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2015/09/23/remarks-president-obama-and-his-holiness-pope-francis-arrival-ceremony Trump is no different than any other president concerning a meeting with the pope.
This is how he addressed issues concerning women. AND SHE NO DOUBT SUFFERS FROM THE BLOND SYNDROME.
It behooves us to revisit things done at the inception of establishing American government. You'll find that almost every social policy was replete with racism. Terry Gross'es explains much of what is still being done - 'Sanitize' How Our Government Created Ghettos in his book A 'Forgotten History' Of How The U.S. Government Segregated America People are not coming to Christ because of racism; hypocritical church goers.
Richard Rothstein "says the housing programs begun under the New Deal were tantamount to a "state-sponsored system of segregation." He further states . "If we want greater equality in this society, if we want a lowering of the hostility between police and young African-American men, we need to take steps to desegregate."
Desegregate the churches and revolutionize world view.
His study revealed "... anywhere where African-Americans lived, anywhere where African-Americans lived nearby were colored red to indicate to appraisers that these neighborhoods were too risky to insure mortgages."
Tares in churches support discrimination and are a large part of the problem
We need to stop pretending to be ignorant of these attempts to ABORT ones progress in life.

Would you want it on your conscience that souls are in hell because you didn't reject a false religion for the truth? How can one be effective for the kingdom if they're untaught? The Gospel truth will make a soul thirst for righteousness and do good works out of love for the Savior - not for fear of going to hell. John Y., you really need to make a decision and stop trying to keep one foot in Rome with the other seeking the Savior. You won't get very far in such a precarious position.
Just this morning I was rebuked by a Christian who invited me to a "Sunrise" service. I asked if the Bible supported such an observation and if it evolved out of pagan worship. I was bluntly told that I have a critical spirit.
Of course, I could not convince him that the reason the church is largely ineffective is that we have meshed our beliefs with the world. I recommended Isaiah 58 to him.
I stand with you Angela. Be ready to find the narrow road a lonely road if you take your eyes off the Via Delorosa road.
