Racial Segregation is NOT Ordained or Designed by God

Racial segregation is an idea promoted by some so-called 'christians' who I will not call Christians, who think that the Bible not only permits, but mandates racial segregation. They think that anyone who disagrees with them on their pet doctrine of racial segregation is some kind of modern liberal, simply for refusing to compromise with them on this issue, even accusing them of being responsible for the evils of wicked vile and perverted agendas which fight for so-called "equality", such as feminist movement, homosexual movement, and transgender movement.

Being against racial segregation does not mean that one believes in the humanistic conception of so-called "equality" which purports that people must be on the same level of various earthly measures, such as wealth, power, or education to be deemed to be treated in a way that is acceptable.  

Being against racial segregation as a follower of Christ is to recognise that all human beings are created in the image of God, and therefore loved by God, who desires none to perish, and is compassionate to all. Opposing racial segregation and opposing feminism, liberalism, the homosexual movement and transgender movement are not contradictory, but in fact, consistent.

Genesis 1:27 says "so God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them." God created humankind in his own image, making them male and female. All human beings are endowed by with the dignity God, making it wrong to commit sins directed against them.  No sin is more or less wrong when directed against some people, compared to another. The same sin directed against a person of one ethnicity is equally wrong when directed against another person of a different ethnicity. 

Racial segregationists, in seeking to draw distinctions between people of different ethnicities based on ethnicities attack the very humanity of people of other ethnicities, by denying the humanity of people of other ethnicities. They may claim that sin against other ethnicities is wrong, but deep down inside in their hearts, they view sin directed towards people of other ethnicities are less wrong or more justifiable. That is itself to deny the God-given humanity of other people, on the basis of their ethnicity. This is because their thinking in separating people by ethnicity is itself to treat people as different owing to ethnicity, being indifferent towards injustices they face or the oppression they are subjected to.

Do not be mistaken, such people have a low view of people of ethnicities they consider inferior, and therefore a low view of God. In denying the full humanity of people of other ethnicities, they do not and cannot truly wholeheartedly preach the true Gospel of Jesus Christ in love, out of concern for their Salvation. This is evident in their extremely strong focus on non-essential, that is, non-salvific doctrines, usually to the point of fanatical obsession. Such people typically, if not always, neglect salvation doctrine, if they even mention them at all. Even when they do, it is simply stated casually by them, just so that they can look Christian in appearance when they are not. 

Such people will inevitably deny what the Scriptures say that God wants all to to saved:

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).

For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;

Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth (1 Timothy 2:3-4).

By 'all', the Bible, all human beings, regardless of ethnicity, culture, sex, age, political affiliation, professed religion, nationality, occupation and social status and socio-economic background. 

Racism and racial segregation, which is simply racism attempted to be justified under whatever clean guise it is masqueraded under, have a demonic spirit behind them. Anyone who is a racist is under the demonic spirit of racism. 

This evil spirit seeks to justify racial segregation and racism by the use of the Old Testament. Racial segregationists tend to be people who love to use the Old Testament to justify their evil and perverted stances on all kinds of issues, and are extremely ignorant and unable, especially in relation to what are essential and non-essential issues, and how the New Testament supersedes the Old Testament. For Hebrews 9:16-17 says: 

For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.
For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

Despite their apparent righteousness, and even prophetic guise, as manifest by their audacity to boldly call out the wickedness of their culture or society, and are correct in doing so, they are full of their own wickedness and vile perversions. 

In particular, they take pleasure in using Genesis 11 to justify racial segregation, when that is not what Genesis 11 is prescribing. Genesis 11 is simply a description of how God separated the people at Shinar, not because He wanted to separate people of different ethnicities, but to ensure that the generation of humanity who wanted to build the Tower of Babel would not reach the heavens to overthrow God's Sovereignty over the earth. 

If racial segregation is prescribed by God, then why was it God's will for Moses, a Jew to marry a Cushite woman, or for Ruth, a Moabite, to marry a Boaz, who was a Jew? Even in the Old Testament, racial segregation is clearly not ordained by God. So, under the New Testament, it is all the more clear that it is not ordained by God or by His design as Galatians 3:28 indicates. 

If racial segregation is prescribed by God under the New Testament, why was it God's will that Apostle Paul, a Jew be Apostle to the Gentiles (Ephesians 3:1)? Why then did God will it that Philip the Evangelist preach the Gospel to the Ethiopian eunuch (Acts 8:26-40)? Why would God use Timothy, who was half-Jew and half-Greek, to do the work of an evangelist, and be a minister (2 Timothy 4:5), if racial segregation is what the Bible prescribes?

Do not be deceived. The false doctrine of racial segregation is a doctrine of demons, which seeks to deny the full humanity of all people, effectively implying that God does not desire people of certain ethnic groups to not be saved. It is an extremely dangerous and vile doctrine which must be exposed and strongly rebuked. It has no place in the true Church whatsoever.

Signs of a Person under the spirit of mammon

Both the unsaved and saved can be under the spirit of mammon. Do not be deceived! An unsaved person can only serve mammon because it is not part of his nature to submit to God in any way (Romans 8:7). However, the Christian can most definitely yield to the temptations of mammon just as he can yield to the temptations of satan. This is what is means for a Christian to be under the spirit of mammon.

The signs of a person being under the spirit of mammon are:

The person does not understand the spirit of mammon. This is because he or she is blinded by it and therefore cannot see it.The person reacts whenever being confronted with being told that they are under the spirit of mammon, or being told that they may be under it. This is not the person themselves reacting, but the spirit of mammon reacting.The person is self-satisfied with the abundance that they have. This is especially the case with many Christians today. They are happy with having a family, a well-paying job, security, romance a…

Two types of contentment

The world seeks contentment. It seeks to be contented in pursuit of all kinds of things, whether it be money, health, wealth, romance, sex, careers or family. It does not necessarily seek after riches to be content. However, that one does not seek after money as the first priority, but other things that are typically associated with good traditional values, such as family, does not in any way mean that one is content in the godly sense. By no means! A person can be a "conservative" and "religious" but just as earthly as the "liberal".

There are two types of contentment: earthly contentment and godly contentment. Earthly contentment finds its fulfillment and satisfaction in things that are passing away, not necessarily money, but also things like family, education and children. Yes, that's right. Many professing American Christians think that they could never be under the spirit of mammon because they care for their families and love their families, as …

The spirit of Mammon seeks to Steal, Kill and Destroy, by Deception and Murder

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly (John 10:10).

The thief in John 10:10 Jesus was referring to was the devil. His minions are no different. They also seek to steal, kill and destroy. Just like the devil, they use lies to murder. How? One may ask. Are not lies and murder from the human heart, rather than a evil spirit, those of you think that anything that the Bible does not explicitly talk about cannot be true may ask, who are so hostile against the doctrine that there is a such thing as a spirit of mammon?

It is true that out of the human heart comes lies and murder (Matthew 15:19). However, this does not mean that there is no such thing as evil spirit which seek to tempt people into lies and murder. Anyone who thinks that there are no such things as evil spirits which people into sin, and blinds them to sin is naive and foolish. 

Those of you who think you are so theolog…
