Trayvon Martin Protest - Sanford

Trayvon Martin Protest - Sanford (Photo credit: werthmedia)



This is a question that all of America and the world should be asking ourselves.  This young teenager could be anyone of our children regardless to the color of our skin.  But it so happens that Trayvon Martin was a seventeen year old young black male, and young black males always have a target on their backs.   We should not have to worry about our children being gunned down for no reason other than the color of their skin.  Based on the 911 tapes and all the evidence thus far it appears that Trayvon Martin was murdered because he was a black youth.  Now listen to the 911 video clip and make your own judgment, and we will continue this discussion on the other side.

People of all races are rallying around this family and beginning to stand up for justice.  This is a very good thing.  It let’s those who will fan the flames of racial hatred and prejudice know that they cannot continue to murder young black youth and get away with it.

We as parents worry about our children when they leave our present for any reason, but we should not have to worry about them because of the color of their skin.  My two boys grew up in a gated community in the North East Georgia Mountains where they were the only two black kids in the entire community.  I did not worry about them traveling in, and around the community, but I did worry about them when they were on the outside of the community and traveling through the city.  Our neighbors were very good people and we all got along well and looked out for each other.  You can find these communities all over the country, but for the bad apples the ones with racial hatred and prejudice in their hearts, it makes it difficult for all of us.

The murder of Trayvon Martin is a perfect example of a bad apple that has caused a worldwide condemnation of what has happen.  Although it was a young black teenage boy that was murdered, it has brought all races, creeds and colors to come together to find justice for the family of Trayvon Martin.  Why?  Because this is not a black thing are a white thing, it is the right thing to do for all of us.  We all have children and grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and it is very important that we protect them from racial hatred and prejudice and having a target on their backs, allowing them to be hunted down like a wide animal, then shot, killed and the hunter is able to walk away free without having to worry about having to face LADY JUSTICE.

The time has come for us to shed our racial hatred and prejudice for each other and put on God’s whole armor of love.  Whether black or white, those who feel that skin pigmentation is to be ridiculed are doing nothing other than calling God a fool and saying that He did not know what He was doing when He caused people to adapt to environmental changes and develop different color hues.  Probably one of the deepest throes a person can endure is to slowly die a spiritual death and not know it.

Many are there among us who have allowed bigotry and racial prejudice to separate them from the eternal light of God.

No attitude of mind is further from the spirit of Christ than that of racial hatred. No, I am not thinking in terms of degree of sin, I simply mean that racial hatred and prejudices are totally antagonistic to and opposite of the “mind of Christ” that caused Him to give up His equality with God and come to earth for the specific purpose of dying for all men. In the next few lessons we will look at some thoughts concerning the focus of racial hatred, the root cause of racial hatred, fruits of racial hatred, and conclude by considering racial hatred compared to the spirit of Christ and God-likeness.

Let us all not forget that Trayvon Martin’s dreams and hopes were taken away from him, his parents dreams and hopes for their son was snatched away on that dreadful night.  This could have been anyone of our sons and how would we be feeling at this moment?  So I encourage each one of you to pray in honest for this family and the community.

Now let us stand together as a people, not black people are white people, but the American people.  We are all Trayvon Martin; We are one in Jesus Christ, not separated by our skin color.  I remain your brother in Jesus Christ, PASTOR DAVIS/MASTER TEACHER!
