“A Colorful God”
Wednesday, March 23, 2005 †

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a
hill cannot be hidden,” (Matthew 5:13-15)


Prejudice - Ugly Reality. To be prejudice means to be narrow-minded; to feel prejudice is to feel hatred, anger, detestation, and loathing. And you can basically have these feelings toward anything or anyone for any gender, race, religion, age etc. Prejudice in itself is a feeling that can permeate into a person’s very being, into their every pore, and cause them to declare death, or war against another being. We all know this too well because it is all around the world today. And the truth is we’ve all been there, on both ends to some minor or even major degree. This shouldn’t really shock us, because unfortunately it is our reality.

However, what is very shocking and very sad is that we sometimes try to take these earthly labels and dare apply them heaven…to God. Is that not blasphemy as well as vanity? When we argue amongst ourselves what color God is, doesn’t it sound rather petty? Or at the very least, I believe it sounds prejudice, and if there is only ONE GOD then I definitely do not want to have feelings of prejudice towards my Lord because he might be of a different color then the one I believe in. Does God really have a physical color? Maybe he posses all shades of colors, one for each day of the week. … or does He actually belong to a nation on the planet Earth?

How about God’s religion, do you think he loves one religion more than the other? And does that mean he does not love those of us who do not belong to an established religion at all? Was Jesus of a certain religion? Did he ever say his teaching defined a certain religion? … or was that something that man established, because conveniently to follow Christ must mean to be a Christian. In the past, Pilate tried to ask Jesus, “Are you the King of the Jew?” Jesus answered, “So you say” (Mark 15:2).

I suppose it is a little confusing because yes, Jesus did take on the cloak of humanity and came to earth so that he can see, taste, feel what it is like to be human. He wanted to be like us and experience life like us, except our pains would never be anything like what he experienced. But let us not forget that Jesus is of God, and God is of Heaven. Therefore, what GOD IS at the very least is the light of the world, and not any of those other labels that we should be concerned with. That’s just plain prejudice.
