There are no colored people here

G.red-front-door.-grey-housePaul is talking about the life and witness of Abraham and in so doing, provides us with revelatory truth and I like what he says in Romans chapter 4 in the midst of his lesson: “20No distrust made him waver concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong in his faith as he gave glory to God, 21being fully convinced that God was able to do what he had promised.”  

Well, I am fully convinced, fully persuaded by the words of Galatians 3.28 and Colossians 3.11, that “there is neither Jew nor Greek.”  There is nothing to debate about; racial identity theory cannot persuade me.  I will not argue about the promises of God; the prejudices of others do not convince me.  I still believe that God is able to do what he has promised concerning our oneness in Christ.  

There are no colored people here.
No beige, black, brown, red, white, yellow people far or near.
Come closer
Because people are not colors, that truth is clear.
Come in and have mercy but have no fear.

It doesn’t matter what you call yourself.
That is not the answer here.
Race is not welcome.
It is neither sage nor seer.

No apologies for my limited seating capacity
No room for lies or self- delusions
No time to prepare for mass social confusion
No one here to entertain race’s delusions
There are no colored people here.
