The Majority of White Supremists Claim to be Christians, Falsely
Christian Students of Ohio The majority of white supremists claim to be Christians. Many bear tattoos of the cross of Christ. But pure and honest Christianity does not advocate bigotry, racism, violence nor intimidation. The worst of fallen human nature motivates cruel bigotry. It endeavors to oppress others in the name of religion, and it cites Scripture, which is taken out of context, to back its claim that God condones bigotry. Contrary to these claims, Jesus said, “Thou shalt do no murder... and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” (Matthew 19:18, 19) The Apostle John said, “He that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes...” “Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.” 1 John 2:11; 3:15
White supremists hate the Jews, but Jesus Christ was the “Lion of the tribe of Judah” — he was a Jew! (Revelation 5:5) The twelve Apostles were all Jews.
When Jesus said “Let your light so shine before men,” he did not mean torches of bigotry and hatred. He meant your “good works” which would “glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) Those who burn the cross of Christ — the Prince of Peace — and those who carry torches to intimidate are certainly NOT followers of Christ! No, they emulate those who carried their torches up to the Garden of Gethsemane to arrest the most pure and innocent man who ever lived — the Son of God! John 18:3
Not until we have reached the position when we can say that we love even our enemies can we say that we are copies of God’s dear Son — followers of the lamb.
There is no place for hatred, violence, intimidation and persecution in the kingdom of God. “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God...” Matthew 5:16
