You Are Not A Human Being
Did I really say that? Yep, I did. Please lend me your ear for a moment and I will explain myself to you as to why I said such an ignorant arrogant thing.
What are you worth as a human being? I don’t mean how much money your banker says you are worth. What I do mean is, are you a human being at all, is your very hide, your life, worth anything? It should be easy for you to say to me, how dare you, and I agree with you on that. How dare I or anyone to say such a thing about anyone, and mean it! Have you ever wondered how on earth that people can treat each other so inhumanly as to premeditated the taking of another persons life? Not just con, shuck, jive, beg, borrow or steal every material thing a person has on earth. But to feel no remorse about planning to murder someone or about the actual execution there of? Why is it okay for me or anyone else to do such things to our fellow human beings? I have learned that it is much easier to commit murder if you believe that the person or persons aren’t really humans but are something subhuman, just another animal with no Soul. Hate always helps, if you think a person or persons are doing evil things you can demonize them convincing yourself that ‘they deserve it’ for their evil actions.
During the last third of the 19th century the western third of what is now the lower 48 States of America was taken over by a lot of us poor white folks and a few rich ones from those “blood thirsty savages” (Indians). Hum, we wanted the land these people lived on and we didn’t want to have to pay anything for it so let’s just unleash a genocide on them. If I can convince myself that these ‘savages’ don’t even have a Soul it makes it easier to just ‘wipe them out’. If I am a ‘Slaver’ of people of another color than my own, it is much easier if you believe that they aren’t equals to ourselves, that they are sub-human, at best. This time frame was not gentile toward other nationalities of people either the Hispanic, Orientals, Jews, Arabs, Catholics, or Blacks, the list goes on and on it seems. It does seem that we can learn to hate anyone, for any reason, even if we have to make one up. Hate doesn’t have to be race related either it can be something as simple as the rich hating the poor and the poor hating the rich.
I did just bring up a religion note in that last paragraph on purpose, you didn’t think I could let that one not be included in this critique of the human race did you? I will start first with picking on us people who say that we ‘believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the one and only Living God’ for their spilling of blood of other Christians. Then there is the issue of ‘Christians (and) Catholics’. Do they (Protestant Christians) and the people who call themselves Catholic both believe in the Deity of Jesus Christ as the Son of God the Father? Then how ‘in the name of all that is good and Holy’ does one do violence to the other and believe that Jesus will think that is a good thing? If people would just open up their dusty Bibles and actually read of God’s love for “all people”, then of all people, why the violence one toward another? There is nothing ‘Godly” about this hate and violence! Why do we think that we should condemn, when that is God’s job to do, not ours? Only God is to judge who is correct and who is wrong, it is not our call, we are not to condemn or commit violence toward anyone. If a person is a Christian at heart and Soul then we should be praying for the Souls of those who hate us, and who believe other than what we do. By my belief’s all people who do not come to worship/serve/love Jesus before they die, will end up spending forever in Hell and I do not want that for anyone that I have ever known. Who is a Christian to kill an unbeliever, thus condemning that person to Hell? So, as a Christian I hope that everyone will see the love of Jesus for everyone and turn away from all offensiveness. I do know that not all people are nonviolent who call themselves Christians, and I do know that God will judge us all in the end. Do not mistake my soft heart, I do totally believe that if someone is trying to cause physical harm to your family or your physical being then you have the obligation to protect by any means necessary. It is just that no one has the ‘right’ to be an aggressor, no aggressor, then no is defense needed. God is love, He is not hate, if our heart is filled with hate then we have nothing to do with God. Satan is a ‘god’ of hate, if our hearts and minds are filled with hate it is not ‘God’ whom we are then serving.
If we are racist toward another person simply because of the color of their skin, are we not saying that they are not equal humans to us? If I consider you to be less of a person because you are from another whole nationality group, or even a different gender, have I not then demonized/lowered your value as an equal? Christians need to realize that Jesus was a Jew, who was sent to the house of Israel knowing that He would be rejected out of their ignorance of the Scriptures. If the Jewish people had not done exactly as they did toward Jesus then there would never have been such a thing as Christianity. Christians should come to know the Jewish people and the Jewish Nation of Israel as even in Revelation Jesus Himself says salvation is given to the Jew first then to the Gentiles (all the rest of us). Personally I am going to try to convince our Jewish brothers of the human race to see and understand the reality that Jesus is the Christ just as I prefer to try to convince the ‘non-people of the Book’ of their errors so that they do not die in a lost condition.
There will not be a lasting peace for the people of our planet because there is an abundance of hate toward everyone from someone somewhere. If I’m not hated because I’m white, straight, Christian, American, old, bald, fat, or ugly I’m sure a person can find something else if they so choose in which to hate me for. I know that there are religions/cultures where I could never be accepted as an equal human being because of some of these very reasons. Wrong color, wrong faith, from wrong country etc.. Are you a human being? Do you look at anyone else on the globe and say in your heart that they aren’t really human, that they don’t have a Soul like I do? If the heart of a man is filled with hate then it is the Devil that owns them, by no means are they a servant of the one and only ‘real God’. What they are doing is kissing the flames off the rump of a Devil when they speak and perform hateful acts upon another. Folks, we are all human beings, equally, of one family, one race, the human race, the only race.
