Skin color, statues, & stuff

Skin color’s a dumb thing to focus on! So much pain was released when it became a way of evaluating people. Let’s quit judging people by their “color.”

Eye color, hair color, skin color; does any of it really matter? God just looks at the heart. Why don’t we all do that?

So what about historical statues and other symbols that commemorate people who embraced, supported, and defended abusing and trafficking people because of their color? If we truly want a society built on equality and love, it seems to me like we would need to move on and leave those things behind.

There’s no such thing as race in the body of Christ. We’re all sisters & brothers.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP

    Not to mention that the First Commandment includes that part about “no graven images.”
