- Racism, Religious and Ethnic
Racism is not necessarily a bad thing. Every person is born in his nature with racism. Naturally people favor their own family, father, mother and siblings. The family develops and grows with time when man procreates. The family begins with the unity of father and mother. In the Bible the first two parents are Adam and Eve. From Adam and Eve develops the tree of life of lineage. There is one family for all of mankind beginning with Adam and Eve or with the children of Noah after the flood. Within the family tree of Adam and Noah there are branches which are specific families growing from the same root.
Judaism is the first religion of a family tree which grows from the root of Adam and Eve. The Jewish people are descended from Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The Bible relates the story of how the Jewish people became a nation given to them by God the land of Israel and the Torah. Judaism accepts converts from the other nations of the world. Moses is the prophet of Judaism.
Christianity began as a movement in opposition to the racism within Judaism. The movement opposed the dictatorship in the Jewish Nation of Israel. Judaism is a monarchy with specific laws given by Moses to the Jewish people which is the constitution of their nation. After the destruction of the first temple built by King Solomon the monarchy fell and the nation was exiled to Babylon. The people returned to their land after seventy years to build the second temple without a king. The Sanhedrin the Great Assembly, the Israel Congress of Sages established prayers each day for the reestablishment of their monarchy and to again become a sovereign nation. During the time of the second temple they no longer had sovereignty over their nation but were a satellite nation. They prayed to return their sovereignty through their King the messiah. King David established the Kingship and his son built the first temple in Jerusalem. Jews pray each day “should sprout forth David your servant.” “We should see with our eyes the reestablishment of Zion with mercy.” The nation of Israel was established by King David through battles and war to conquer the land. The nation has been reestablished through mercy and peace. The nation of Israel was a monarchy a dictatorship governed by the Law of Moses. Today it is a free country.
Judaism a national religion had a hierarchy. The nation became separated into two levels, the hierarchy called the Congregation of God and Jews who had lost their lineage, peasants and criminals. Through Jesus the outcasts of Israel desired to make a new nation without racism. They declared Jesus to be their king. The hierarchy of Israel, the Sanhedrin sentenced him to death as a rebel and a false prophet. He was crucified by the Romans who also had ulterior motives in his execution. His followers continued to accept him as their king the Messiah after his death and established a new religion in the world called Christianity, This religion was accepted by the Roman government as its national religion, a religion without racism until began the Crusades and Spanish Inquisition.
All religions have in them racism in a different way. The racism of Christianity was not based on blood like Judaism but on acceptance of Jesus as the Messiah. They were not racists of blood, everyone could join their movement through baptism and become Christian. Christianity became racism through religion. If you didn’t accept Jesus you would be put to death. Judaism was racism based upon blood lineage which allowed people to convert by accepting the Law of Moses. People were not forced to convert but if they did not convert they were considered second class citizens in Israel and in the world. In the nation of Israel Jews had special rights. Judaism considers the whole world part of their nation but Jews are superior in the eyes of God. Christianity also considers their followers to be superior not through racism but through religion. Christianity does not have a family tree but the majority of the followers of Jesus are descendants of Esau the son of Jacob called the nation of Edom, Romans and Greeks.
Islam through the prophet Mohammed and his followers the descendants of Ishmael came after Christianity to make a new religion not based upon racism worshipping God in the way of Judaism without any form or image. Christianity worshiped God in the form and image of Christ the messiah. Islam like Christianity are opposed to racism based upon blood but are both racist based upon religion. Muslims consider Islam the nation of God. Their goal is to unite the whole world with their nation. They don’t consider themselves racist but their roots are in the family of Ishmael.
Another cause of hate between people is through National rivalry. During the Cold War it was between the Soviet Union and the United States. National rivalry is rampant in the Middle East between Muslim and Muslim and between Muslim and Jewish. People are naturally loyal to their nation and consider other nations to be of second importance. National racism is not always based on religious differences.
America tries to be a father for other nations in the world. America also has its own interests in mind. It considers itself to be superior to other nations due to its power and economy. Being a nation with freedom of religion makes it free from religious racism. It is open to immigrants which is non-racial. However it has to think first of its own interests and protect its own citizens from its enemies. Therefore Trump has closed the borders of America from immigrants from Mexico and from other countries. As he has said many times, first comes America.
Judaism is racism based upon blood. Judaism and Islam combine national and religious bonds between men. Christianity and Islam are racism based upon religion. Racism is a part of the nature of man to favor his family and friends. Islam and Christianity are the racism of friendship through being part of the same religion. Judaism is racism based upon family lineage and being part of the same religion.
Judaism allows conversion so it is open to the world. It is built upon family lineage of descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Christianity and Islam are closed to the world from one side and open from the other side. The members of their religion are considered superior in the eyes of God but they are open to accept converts.
To call Judaism racist is antisemitism. Atheists today call all religions racists but atheism is also a racist a friendship of atheists against religion. Hitler was a National racist worshipping the Arian race an example of the evil in racism. Homosexuals marching in the streets with pride preaching against racism and discrimination are naturally creating a new nation in the world with freedom for homosexuals which when it will become more powerful will also be racial.
There are always good reasons to hate or to be jealous. There are also good reasons not to hate and to love your neighbor. Choose your friends and not your enemies. Make peace your first interest. Seek out truth and a better life. You have permission from God to favor your loved ones but not to persecute innocent people because they may not agree with you. Racism is evil, but freedom also has negative aspects but it is the better of the two evils.
