There was a time in this country when blacks were forced to feel ashamed because of the color of their skin. That was pure evil.
But now another race is being pressured to feel ashamed because of the color of their skin. This is equally evil.
If you have ever been guilty of racism toward another person, you must, for the sake of your own soul, go back and apologize. But if you’ve stood against racism your whole life, then have more respect for yourself than to confess to sins you’ve never committed.
False guilt and false shame are the Devil's work.
God’s work is redemptive, releasing us from our actual shame and guilt.
God doesn’t hold us accountable for sins we haven’t committed, but the Devil does. God doesn’t hold us accountable for the sins of previous generations, but the Devil does. God doesn’t seek to keep us locked under the bondage of shame and guilt, but the Devil does.
But God does hold us accountable for the sins we have actually committed. And by the power of Jesus' blood, He promises to wash them away.
In your search for redemption, make sure you seek it at the right altar.
