God’s Color Line

[182 words]

The Bible teaches that God “hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth… ” (Acts 17:26). Through the years, man has drawn racial distinctions of black, white, yellow, red, etc. Racial prejudice was sinful in the life of Simon Peter, whom Paul, a fellow apostle, withstood to the face (Galatians 2:11:13).

In Acts 10:34,35 we read that “God is no respecter of persons: But in every nation he that feareth Him, and worketh righteousness is accepted with Him. ” God’s color line is “scarlet” for in Isaiah 1:18 the Lord says, “though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” God’s color line is the color of sin, not skin!

All men can be one in Christ by obeying the gospel. Sinners must repent, confess and be baptized and then they can stand on the common ground of salvation in Christ (Acts 17:30,3l; Romans 1029,10; Acts 22:16; 2 Timothy 2:10).
