Shadow Racism

“It’s a Race” 

Romans 12:5, “So in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” 

Galatians 3:26-28, “So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” 

“Racism” is __________________ that race determines intellectual, cultural and moral capabilities. 

Galatians 5:14-15, “For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other.” 

Ibram Kendi wrote: “Being a racist is not a fixed term. It’s not an identity, it’s not a tattoo — it is describing what a person is doing in the moment, and people change from moment to moment.” 

See Numbers 12:1-11
