I agree with that. Violence continues to grow nowadays. Looting, protesting and etc.. This is my first time to see this violence across the globe. As humans, we really need to pray and pray for a better tomorrow.

Amen….we should all be praying for and more urgently.

Police brutality is more common in black America than you think. You cannot relate to this as you have never had to have the talk with your sons about how to act if they are stopped by a policeman. Not all officers are corrupt and not all protesters are violent. Your statement ” it only takes a spark for things to explode”…..are you implying that the murder of George Floyd was only a spark? This has taken place before it’s just that now we have cell phones and it can be recorded.

Hello Rona. Thank you so much for your comment. The spark means that it takes a social injustice sometimes to spark violence, and I can see why but the violence is not the way to change society. I do agree that this has been happening since the first African-Americans have been enslaved. What evil this is, and this is still continuing. Those in law enforcement should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The late Mr. George Floyd was clearly murdered and we need to change our hearts and minds toward others. There is no race….only the human race. God created all mankind from one man, Adam (Acts 17). I am not implying that Mr. Floyd’s death was “only a spark” as in such a heinous murder like his, there is nothing at all about it being “only.” I do see now how my wording could be misconstrued, and I apologize for that. I have removed that sentence so others won’t be mislead by my wording. Thank you for pointing that out…I surely did not mean to offend.

There is no room for prejudice in the church. That is the last place we should expect to see it, but sadly, that’s not always been the case. In the beginning, the church was almost 99% Jewish, but after the Apostle Paul was commissioned to go to the Gentiles, thousands of Gentiles joined the church. This is why Scripture teaches, from the Old Testament to the New, that God shows no partiality” (Rom 2:11), and neither should we. The Apostle Peter was slow to acknowledge his aversion to Gentiles, but God finally showed Peter that the gospel was for all people, so “Peter opened his mouth and said: “Truly I understand that God shows no partiality” (Acts 10:34). Since we strive to become more like Christ, remember that “the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God, who is not partial and takes no bribe” (Deut 10:17).
