You CAN'T be a racist and a Christian at the same time
You CAN'T be a racist and a Christian at the same time. You have to choose one of the two options.


Jesus Christ was born from a Jewish mother.

Jesus Christ had 12 Jewish apostles.


Jesus Christ told the Parable of the Good Samaritan for a reason:

[link to en.wikipedia.org]


Samaritans were hated by Jesus' target audience, the jewish people, to such a degree that the Lawyer's phrase "The one who had mercy on him" may indicate a reluctance to name the Samaritan. The Samaritans in turn hated the jewish people. Tensions were particularly high in the early decades of the first century because Samaritans had desecrated the Jewish Temple at Passover with human bones.

As the story reached those who were unaware of the oppression of the Samaritans, this aspect of the parable became less and less discernible: fewer and fewer people ever heard of them in any context other than as a description. Thus cast appropriately, the parable regains its message to modern listeners: namely, that an individual of a social group they disapprove of can exhibit moral behavior that is superior to individuals of the groups they approve.


Jesus was against the hatred and racial prejudice between Jewish people and Samaritans.




In the first years of Christianity, the two main "racial" groups of Christians were the Jewish Christians, and the Greek Christians.

But the Bible says, on Galatians 3:28:

"There is neither jewish nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

The reason for this to be in the Bible is: Christians should not be divided on racial groups. God loves everyone equally, and racial divisions should not exist. That's why the Bible warned that divisions between "Jewish and Greek" should not exist in the Early Christianity.

Aren't Christians supposed to believe the entire Bible? According to the OT, it was okay for jewish people to hate and kill all other races.

Re: You CAN'T be a racist and a Christian at the same time
Actually they seem to go together. Not all racists are Christian and not all Christians are racist but there seems to be a very big overlap. The similarity seems to be closeminded ignorance which they both seem to have a large dose of.

Only the most confused of Xtians believe the OT literally.

The only real Christian book is the NT, which is entirely different reading than the OT, which from all accounts, Jesus despised.

Re: You CAN'T be a racist and a Christian at the same time
Well, I am not going to quote scripture, but it is taught by most Christians that they should separate themselves from so called non-believers. It is this "us vs. them" type of mentality that quickly leads to racism, genocide, and other distasteful qualities. IMO.
So, yes, I am of the mind that it is possible.

Christ brought us a NEW TESTAMENT... passing away the old.

Agreed. That is why Jesus made the NEW COVENANT.. The OT was the old covenant made by GOD.. The TEN COMMANDMENT is like a mirror that shows us that the human condition CANNOT uphold the COVENANT with God.. He loved us so much he made it easier on us to be with HIM. All we have to do is believe on JESUS CHRIST.. He did the hard part.

Re: You CAN'T be a racist and a Christian at the same time
ummm the OT was NEVER done away with! Afterall, EVERY text Jesus and the apostles quote was from the OLD TESTAMENT because the NEW TESTAMENT didn't even exist at the time! If you do away with the OT you do away with over 50% of the NT!! The old covenant was done away with. The old covenant was having to take lambs to the sanctuary, confess your sins on them, slay them, do the Day of Atonement and other feast days, etc. JESUS did away with that! it was nailed to the cross! Jesus FULFILLED the ceremonial law! He WAS the lamb slain from the foundation of the world! All the ceremonial laws pointed FORWARD to Jesus and what he would accomplish for us on the cross, but it did NOT do away with the writings of the Old Testaments, of which MOST is prophecies about Jesus and even things that will happen at the end of time!

Re: You CAN'T be a racist and a Christian at the same time
There is a difference between a RACIST and a BIGOT. I consider myself a racist only. I love my white heredity and love that my family was Confederate. They were not slave owners just because they were white. That is a silly myth. My ancestors were Indentured servants from England and Europe. I absolutely do not think I am better than any other race, but I can have great admiration for mine without hesitation.

So... if the law of the old testament that said it is okay to stone people to death was not meant to be changed by the change of mens HEARTS then why did he save the woman from being stoned? He asked " Who condems you?" She replied after she looked around and saw that everyone was gone "No one Lord" He replied " Neither do I. Go and sin no more". That is part of the New Covenant.

You are not a racist if you LOVE YOUR kind, since "racism" implies HATING OTHERS. Then, the predominant U.S. ancestry is German and Irish, not English.

Either way, I understand your point very well. So...

Re: You CAN'T be a racist and a Christian at the same time
Maybe this is why Jesus started out preaching to the jewish people first.. He was rejected. He told his diciples to spread the word to the Gentiles (anyone who is not Jewish). That is the heigth of non-bigoted or racist action as the Gentiles are considered swine before the jewish people.

Remember, the Jewish remnant will only be 144,000.

21 And Jesus went away from there, and withdrew into the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And behold, a Canaanite woman came out from that region, and began to cry out, saying, "Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is cruelly demon-possessed." 23 But He did not answer her a word. And His disciples came to Him and kept asking Him, saying, "Send her away, for she is shouting out after us." 24 But He answered and said, "I was sent only to the lost sheep of the house of Israel." 25 But she came and began to bow down before Him, saying, "Lord, help me!" 26 And He answered and said, "It is not good to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs." 27 But she said, "Yes, Lord; but even the dogs feed on the crumbs which fall from their masters' table." 28 Then Jesus answered and said to her, "O woman, your faith is great; be it done for you as you wish." And her daughter was healed at once.

They just didn't engage in anti-slavery fight, because they tought their mission was spiritual, and they should dedicate to this spiritual mission, and not divert their efforts to "mundane" issue, specially in a moment when their religious movement was newborn and so small.

And by the way, slavery in the times of the Roman Empire ahd NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE.

In Rome there were slaves from all races, including blonde "barbarians" from the Germanic nomadic tribes.
