Our world today is steeped in racism and prejudice. Kenya is very racist and prejudiced. The United States of America is very racist and prejudiced.
According to Webster’s Dictionary, racism is: "the assumption that the characteristics and abilities of an individual are determined by race and that one race is biologically superior to another; a political program or social system based on these assumptions.” Prejudice is defined as: “a preconceived opinion, usually unfavorable; the holding of such opinion; an unjustified and unreasonable bias; injury due to some judgment or action of another; the disregard of a person’s rights.”
Ethnic is defined as: “of relating to a people whose unity rests on racial, linguistic, religious or cultural ties.”
Throughout the nations, racism and prejudice cause all the problems, including the attempt to control people, which leads a nation to becoming socialistic, communistic or led by a dictator, as in most third-world countries. When this happens, the people in those nations become slaves under tyranny. I have mentioned just two nations in this article, Kenya and America, because both of these nations have similar characteristics; yet, both face becoming secular nations rather than Christian nations, and both face future persecution. During their recent elections, I believe both countries voted for candidates based on racism (tribalism) and prejudice. Both countries claim to be Christian nations; yet, in Kenya, which is approximately 85% Christian, people started killing one another based on their ethnic lines. The church was definitely ignorant, carnal, and prejudicial to commit such sins which led to over 1,000 people dying--in a nation where Islam is trying to take control. If the church had voted for a born-again Christian to fill the presidency, the country would never have gone into fighting and come so close to being ruled by another religious group.
The following quote is from an email written by an American black Christian: "I can’t vote black because I have to vote Christian because that’s who I am, Christian first, black second...In an election there are many issues to consider, but when a man backs abortion, same-sex marriage, embryonic stem cell research, homosexuality, attended a racist church for 20 years, opposes parents being notified if their daughters want an abortion, backs partial birth abortion, believes all religions serve the same god and says that America is no longer a Christian nation, I cannot vote for that man. This is why I cannot vote for Barrack Obama."
According to Pew Research Center Publications, 95% of Black Americans voted for Obama. NBC13.com, Nov. 7, 2008, stated: "Senator Barack Obama became the first Democrat to win Alabama's largest county--Jefferson--since the 1950's...African Americans made up about 30% of the Alabama electorate Tuesday, and 98% of them backed Obama..." I believe the evidence is clear that there is more racism in the black community percentage-wise than in the white community. Racism, prejudice and ethnicity can also be found along political lines when people vote strictly according to party loyalty instead of voting for the candidate that would best represent Jesus Christ, thereby protecting and promoting Jesus' values, beliefs and behaviors. We need to vote as loyal Christians following biblical standards, not according to the color of the candidate's skin or original country of origin.
I am confident that the election of Barrack Hussein Obama as the 44th president of the United States was not the will of God. Forty-four (44) is the number of judgment in Hebrew. Obama supports values that are totally condemned in the scriptures. The Bible tells us clearly in II Corinthians 4:4, Luke 4:5-8, John 12:31, Hosea 8:4, and other scriptures that Satan is the prince and ruler of this earth. On earth God allows men to rule their nations. God certainly did not choose Caesar, Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, or Saddam Hussein to rule their nations. God would never have voted for these leaders who were against the teachings, values, and behaviors of Jesus Christ and who persecuted God's people.
When Jesus returns at the Battle of Armageddon and His feet touch the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:1-4; Revelation 19:11- Chapter 20), then God will rule the earth and not before. Today He allows men to do their evil deeds and tyrants to rule nations. God help America who elected a person who is not born-again but, instead, manipulates the very elect, who are racist, carnal and prejudicial, into backing his anti-Christ United Nations' agenda, which includes abortion and homosexuality.
