Spirit vs Flesh

If the spirit is not of God, "What communion has light with dark." We're not meant to get along with some people. But as Christians we should still pray for them because they are in need.

Don't be a person who blames your dislikes on the color of a person's skin. It is the spirit within that is either deplorable or adorable. It is the spirit of a person that will either repel or attract you.

Bad spirited people come in all colors. You would be wise to steer clear of bad spirited people. We must acknowledge our uneasiness which is there to protect us from danger. But again danger comes in all colors.

So we must avoid stereotyping people for that is an act of racism. Stereotyping accomplishes very little. That's like saying a poor man is bad because he is poor. And a rich man is good because he is rich. To paraphrase it, "Better is a poor man of integrity with little than a rich man who is perverse."

I would submit to you that our likes and dislikes stem from the inner spirit and has little to do with color of skin in the end. To dislike someone solely because of the color of their skin makes one a perpetrator of hatred and people should steer clear of them because they have become dangerous minded.

As Christians we understand that the flesh wars against the spirit. Some are more filled with flesh than spirit within. This contrast of inner substance is what causes likes and dislikes. But the good news is that people change from day to day. "He who began a good work in us is faithful to complete it."

Christ! Christ! The eyes of Christ! Who did the Good Samaritan see? "Behold, when you have done it to one of these, the least of my brothers, you have done it to Me!" "Anyone who says he loves God, yet hates his brother, is a liar." Each must see Christ in us....
