The false image of humanity and Christianity


One of the complaints that comes up when people state that the United States is a “Christian nation.”
Is what happened to the Native Americas at the hands of those that came from Europe to make this nation and the subsequent expansion to the lower forty-eight states of this nation.
Here is what people do not wish to acknowledge or know.
Mark 7:20 – And then he added, “It is what comes from inside that defiles you. 21 For from within, out of a person’s heart, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, 22 adultery, greed, wickedness, deceit, lustful desires, envy, slander, pride, and foolishness. 23 All these vile things come from within; they are what defile you.”
They assume because people profess to be “Christian” that they are acting under the direction of God. When as you can tell from these verses the evil that humanity has done to other humans comes from themselves, not God.
So to blame Christianity for the crimes and misdeeds of humanity is not only an injustice to God, but is a lie and another type of excuse to allow people to live freely in sin.
Should humanity have done the evil they have done throughout all the ages man has walked upon this earth? No.
But to throw the blame upon God, His Son or Christianity is false and wrong for any to do.
Time and again the people of Israel are shown that they themselves turned their backs upon God so that they could live in sin. To worship idols. To attack their own neighbors out of their own hatred, selfishness and greed.
None of this is taught within the Bible.
Jesus taught to love thy neighbor as you would love yourself.
This means that when they forced Native Americans from their lands they were showing that in reality they hated themselves and due to their self-hatred sought after ways to make themselves feel better about themselves by denigrating others. You can see this very act being done by those that deny and say they hate God and Christianity. It is not Christians they hate but themselves and they seek solace for their own self-loathing unaware that they are attacking the very source that can give them what they truly and deeply seek.
They have no true concept of what they are doing for in their hatred refuse to read or even listen to the evidence of the truth that can be found with the Bible and from Christians that truly do strive to follow the word of God.
Now we must understand an important point though.
There are those that call themselves “Christian” that have this very same self-loathing and too seek solace.
Why is this?
Because in reality they are not truly “Christian.”
They take the words of others as (excuses the pun) gospel.
When they are not in reality receiving the word of God.
But the gospel according to humanity.
Christ makes it clear that we are to love God with all our heart, mind and soul. By giving this love we seek to do all thing for His glory. ALL THINGS.
So for example these false teachers say you can call upon God to give you wealth upon this earth. This is a lie.
So for example these false teachers say that this group of people is less than you and you are to rule over them. This is a lie.
The Bible says our rewards are not of this earth and that those that are rich will have a more difficult time entering into the eternal life if at all.
The Bible says we are to place ALL others before ourselves. If we do that and we treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves. Then we would never seek to harm them, for only very few seek to harm themselves and that is mainly due to not knowing or understanding the Word of God.
So understand. Those that divide. Those that promote hate. Those that seek to be have dominion over their fellows. Do so for their own selfish and sinful desire and needs, for they are corrupt and evil.
The only way to escape this cycle is to truly ask Jesus Christ into their lives and to truly come to understand the Bible and the peace that is taught within it.
