Racism in the Bible, if it could be called that, was not due to skin-color, but to religion. Judaism had natural separations based on the design of their temple, separating high priest, priests, men, women, and the nations or Gentiles. “Foreigners” such as Romans or Gentiles who entered the courts were not forbidden to go further into the temple because of race, but because of religion. God separated the nations based on the covenant delivered to Moses.
Any racism practices in that covenant was an abuse of the religion. It was certainly not based upon skin-color as the Judeans and ancient Israelites had more in common with Africans and indigenous Palestinians than Europeans. Man translates his religious values into his political ideologies. “These walls of separation are broken down in Christ but are raised by man in racism. Christ struck a fatal blow to both in the following texts.
“For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation” (Eph. 2:14).
“For you are all the sons of God by faith in Christ Jesus…And if you are Christ’s then are you Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.” (Gal. 3:26-29).
Whatever separation which existed in the religion of Judaism exemplified by the temple’s design has been torn down in Christ. It was removed with the temple’s destruction in 70AD, ending such religious distinctions for all time. God tears down walls; man rebuilds them.
God is No Respecter of Persons
Peter, a devoted follower of Judaism had to be divinely confronted with his religious separatism. In the vision of Acts 10:1ff, he learned that what God had cleansed, he was not to call common, a term used to describe non-Israelites or Gentiles.
“Then Peter opened his mouth and said: ‘In truth I perceive that God shows no partiality. But in every nation whoever fears Him and works righteousness is accepted of Him. The word which God sent to the children of Israel, preaching peace through Jesus Christ–He is Lord of all…” (Acts 10:34-36)
It is like the term used in the day of Christ to refer to the Syro-Phoenician woman as one of the dogs who begged for the crumbs to fall from the Master’s table, (Matt. 15:24).
Yet, Jesus did not turn her away but blessed her, showing his respect for all humanity. He, at the time was living faithfully in following Judaism which practiced the separatism above.
Lt Gov. Dewhurst’s Call For Immigration Control at the Mexican Border
He stated what appears to be fear-mongering saying that undocumented immigrants will unleash criminal activity nationwide. If they are not stopped they will be in your neighborhoods [translated white neighborhoods] all around the United States. He claims some 25% according to border patrol have criminal records, saying “We don’t want ’em to come in and hurt you, hurt us,”.
He then responded to Sean Hannity’s comment that some immigrants “allegedly” hold ties to terrorism because they might come from countries such as Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen. Lt. Gov Dewhurst responded that a tsunami of these immigrants were Chinese. He said the signs were in English, Spanish and Chinese and asks why are they coming from these countries that are locations of terrorism in the United States? http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2014/07/29/373288/gov-us-should-crack-down-…
Alex Hinokuchi points out the following numbers on immigration in Dallas, TX: See reference below.
“16,572 immigrants naturalized: among the top four regions and countries of birth are (1) Asia: 7,613; (2) North America: 4,453; (3) Africa; 2,574; (4) Europe: 1,088 respectively.”
What is of interest here among these naturalized immigrants are not the numbers but the percentages. Overall percentages are low, but are yet revealing. Nor should we assume that just because Africa is named, it means dark-skinned Africans. The question is, how is this sampling reflected in the overall numbers? From appearance, border control seems to be working well for Dallas.
The Irony of It All
Almost all Americans are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. What if the Native Americans had paid more attention to border control? What if they were concerned about terrorists fleeing Europe coming to their country and infiltrating their neighborhoods ready to unleash criminal activity nationwide? Who would the Native Americans style as terrorists if asked today?
Further, what about “border controls” in Palestine which most of our lawmakers have pledged to support? When Harry S. Truman approved the immigrants from Poland, Russia and Germany to infiltrate Palestine should the indigenous people of Palestine have been worried about the Khazars unleashing a tsunami of genocide against them as the immigrants to America did against the Native Americans?
Does the Lt. Gov and House Speaker Boehner with the rest of the politicians who have pledged their loyalty, and America’s tax dollars to Israel show any concern whatsoever for the borders of the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank let alone for the rest of the land they have stolen from them? Do they have any concern for the terrorism, bombs, white phospherous, wreaking havoc through Palestinian neighborhoods, schools, hospitals and homes? They are in full approval of terrorizing and crossing the borders of Palestine with full financial support.
What if the Africans had set up border controls on their continent to keep the immigrants out? Would they have suffered the terrorism of slavery and the raping of human and material resources from their land? Would they have foreign immigrants and colonial powers creating genocide to mine their gold, diamonds, uranium and other metals for i-phones and computers. Would the Congo have seen the terrorism?
With the kind of death campaigns from such wars and “immigration” one would think these were Satanic worshipers offering up humans as blood sacrifices.
Texas Governor Rick Perry Has Called For the Use of U.S. Military Drones At the Border
“And I don’t think you’re going to be able to address it until you put the resources there, and that’s boots on the ground. We’re asking for the FAA [the Federal Aviation Administration] to allow for drones to be used,” he added. Over 50,000 children mostly from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador have been arrested on the US-Mexico border so far this year.
Can there be any doubt why some politicians support the bombing of children in Gaza?
What About Border Controls In Other Nations?
If anyone asked what nation of all those in the world that have crossed the borders of foreign nations with planes, guns, drones, bombs and weapons of mass destruction that have infiltrated their neighborhoods, destroyed families, deposed patriotic leaders and lovers of their country and people, set up puppet governments and raped and pillaged their lands of untold riches what country would they name? What country did Ron Paul in 2011 campaigns that had a military presence on 900 bases in 135 countries? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4B8XVqBUmM
Why be concerned about the border of Texas, but not the borders of sovereign nations? Is this not the epitome of hypocrisy and racism, a kind never seen on earth before?
Why did European immigrants come to America in the first place? Weren’t they fleeing the terrorists in their own lands who were spoiling their families and neighborhoods? When they arrived did they not rebel against the government and tyranny that threatened their existence and sent them back across the borders?
Why Are They Coming To America?
Why are these people coming to America in the first place from the Honduras, Guatemala and Ecuador, etc? Is it true that the Africans really want to come to America? Do the islanders in the Atlantic or Pacific or Indian oceans really want to come here? Do the people of South and Central America and Mexico? Do Haitians?
Do Palestinians want to come here? Usually the only reason people want to leave their native land is because of some form of “colonialism” or “oppression. Most of these countries where there are concerns at the border have first been victims of “American immigrants” or those incited by them such as the immigrants in Israel crossing their borders and colonizing their neighborhoods until they had to flee.
Most of these nations who are unwanted in the U.S. are people of color and they are also the nations and countries with the wealth of natural resources that “U.S. Corporate” immigrants seek to control.
Do Not Misunderstand
We are not giving blanket approval to any country or nation that violates human rights, seeks to colonize others or commits crimes against international law. We are simply pointing out the transparent hypocrisy of those who claim they want respect for border controls but violate almost everyone else’s borders at a whim to their own advantage and lie through their teeth about it.
