Racism is a Sin

[111 words]

Racism is a terrible sin. The KJV calls it “respect of persons.” Every translation calls it “sin” (James 2:9). We are no to distinguish by race or nationality (Acts 10:24) or by dress or wealth (James 2:1-9) or by social or economic status (Ephesians 6:9). Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed of a time when associations would be determined, not by the color of a person’s skin but by the content of their character. The Bible says, “Man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.” We, too, are told, “Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment” (John 7:24).
