Regina king dating outside of your race
But to my mind, no other mere human ever reached the height of greatness that Paul reached. “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth. We were over in Formosa a few years ago and conferred an honorary degree on Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, and I never met a greater man. When she finished her education, she went back to her home in China. And you colored people listening to me and you white people listening to me ought to keep your heads cool and your minds clear and your hearts warm and keep up these friendly relations we have had through the years. We do not mean that when we came over here we wiped out the line between races. We should have let the Africans stay in Africa instead of bringing them here for slaves, but did you colored people ever stop to think where you might have been if that had not happened? If you had not been brought over here and if your grandparents in slavery days had not heard that great preaching you might not even be a Christian. Just remember that the South went through reconstruction and had a hard time. She owned hundreds of them, and she said, “I was so happy. I say the colored people should have been left over in Africa, and we should have sent missionaries over there and got them converted. But we could not have converted them as fast that way; and God makes the wrath of men to praise Him. Now, I am appealing to you colored people and to you white people. You tell them it is perfectly clear in the Bible that God made of one blood all nations but that He also fixed the bounds of their habitation. We have two Chinese gentlemen teaching here in this school. They are intelligent men, and they understand what we are doing. Now I can sit down with any Christian Japanese, and Christian Chinese, and Christian African, etc., anywhere in the world and as a Christian have fellowships. A Christian relationship does not mean a marriage relationship. Do not let people run over you by coming along and talking about the Universal Fatherhood of God and the Universal Brotherhood of man. We have the Jew (a segregated race), the Gentile (and this includes everybody else), and the Church of God (meaning the Body of Christ, as it is used here). If you are yellow or red or whoever you are, if you are Christians, we are one in Christ. We are facing the greatest dangers we have ever faced, and the religious liberals are riding in now on the crest of a wave of what seems to be popular.I never met a man of more intelligence or a more wonderful Christian; and Madame Chiang Kai-shek is a wonderful woman. How God has used Generalissimo and Madame Chiang Kai-shek–not only as Christian witnesses but also in other ways. Do not let this outside, Communistic, Hellish influence disturb the friendly relation we have had in the South. You might be over there in the jungles of Africa today, unsaved. They are back there today, and what a wonderful thing is happening. I was afraid some of them would be lost, and I felt that God might hold me accountable.” That spirit represented the Old South. They were brought over here, and look what they have. They have a freedom here they do not have anywhere else in the world. You can be a Christian and have fellowship with people that you would not marry and that God does not want you to marry and that if you should marry you would be marrying outside the will of God. Why can’t good, solid, substantial people who do not have any prejudices and do not have any hatred and do not have any bitterness see this? There is no Universal Fatherhood of God and Universal Brotherhood of man. In the Church of God there are no Jews, no Gentiles, no white folks, no black folks. There is no trouble between a colored Christian and a white Christian. But we are not one down here, as far as race is concerned and as far as nations are concerned. We can get along together as Christians, and we had better stand together as Christians. If you are a Christian, you are not going to mistreat anybody.You will find that practically all the troubles we are having today have come out of the fact that men in many instances have ceased to believe in an authoritative Bible. Individually, Christian people in the South–white and black–through the years have been able to work together and to understand each other. Down in Southeast Alabama there were some slaves but not many; but they had the reconstruction days–hard days–and the time came along when people were having a hard time. If he is mean enough to mistreat one man, he is mean enough to mistreat another. The colored people in the South today are better off than they are anywhere else in the world. We Christians are children of God by faith in Jesus Christ. But every good, substantial, Bible-believing, intelligent, orthodox Christian can read the Word of God and know that what is happening in the South now is not of God. God Almighty had a purpose for the Jewish race; and for that purpose to be carried out, He had to separated them from among the nations of the earth. They have been scattered over the face of the earth, and they have kept their racial identity through the years. I believe that the Covenant that God made with Abraham holds good until this day, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee. God scattered them, but He brought them back to their homeland. Of course, in America we do not have a serious problem with the Orient.For instance, we are living in the midst of race turmoil all over the world today. A born-again white man and a born-again colored man can settle any differences they have. But now a world of outside agitation has been started, and people are coming in the name of piety, but it is a false piety, and are endeavoring to disturb God’s established order; and we are having turmoil all over America. You can go to any city in the country and find the poor people living in a certain section there. But things are not going to be made right by trying to overthrow God’s established order. The situation is not a perfect situation for the white folks or the colored folks or for anybody else; but we have never had a perfect situation in this world since Adam and Eve disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden. We are one in Christ; but let us remember that the God Who made of one blood all nations also fixed the boundaries of their habitations. God chose Israel; and through the loins of Israel, He brought us the Messiah. You will find the Jew in London, the Jew in New York, the Jew in San Francisco, the Jew in Tokyo, the Jew in Hong Kong. I am for them, and I am for their homeland and for their Government. I know Jesus Christ was the Son of God; and I know that when Jesus Christ comes back again, He will be the King of the Jews and will be accepted and a nation will be born in a day. If we had as many Chinese and Japanese as we have colored people in the South, we would run into the same problem; but we have no Oriental problem here in the South.If “younger evangelicals” really need to be informed about fundamentalism in the early twentieth-century, let’s give them the whole truth. He was reacting to Billy Graham’s recent trip to Africa where he held integrated meetings and spoke out against apartheid. Founder Bob Jones University Greenville, South Carolina Is Segregation Scriptural? Men do not always agree, because some people are dumb–some people are spiritually dumb; but when the Bible is clear, there is not any reason why everybody should not accept it. The Bible makes it plain that man is naturally a sinner and that he has to become supernaturally a Christian–born again. They are trying to fight back the subtle, Satanic disturbance we have in this country.
All you have to do is live up to the Word of God, and you will have no trouble about knowing how to meet life’s problems. If you will go to the seventeenth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, you will find where Paul preached a special sermon on Mars Hill. There are still fragments of the Athenian culture today in the museums over there; and you can walk around among the crumbled ruins. Paul was chosen of God (he was a Jew) to be the great apostle to the Gentiles. That says that God Almighty fixed the bounds of their habitation. If you have a legal document and there is a paragraph that is clear and you come across an obscure passage, you interpret the obscure passage in the light of the clear passage. If he has a case in court, he will say, “Now, gentlemen of the jury, here is what this paragraph says. There has been an overflow in the world, but most Chinese live in China. No two races ever lived as close together as the white people and the colored people here in the South and got along so well. There is an effort today to disturb the established order. Think of the religion that they learned and how they found God in slavery days. Many of these slave owners were godly, spiritual people. Now we have a mess on our hands, and it is spreading out over this country. Just remember the good, old, colored friends you had in the days gone by. I remember that old, colored woman who was with my wife’s grandmother when she died. He is marking the lines, and you cannot rub them out and get away with it. He told Adam and Eve how to live and what food to eat and what not to eat. Some of them owned slaves, and some of them did not; and some of them were slaves, and some of them were not.
I think the greatest man who ever lived was Paul–I mean I think he was greater than Moses and greater than any other man who lived. Paul tells us in his sermon on Mars Hill, “God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heave and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands.” Now, the statue of the Grecian goddess, Athena, was in the Parthenon; and Paul said that God did dwell in buildings made with hands. This one paragraph is not quite clear, but this other paragraph is clear; and we will interpret this in the light of the clear passage.” God Almighty did not make of the human race one race in the sense that He did not fix the bounds of their habitation. There are millions and millions of them there, and there are no greater people in the world. Think of those old white preachers who preached to your colored ancestors when they were slaves. I remember hearing about when John Jasper was converted at a corn husking and began to shout. ” He said, “I have just been converted–been saved.” “Well,” he said, “I am a Christian, too. He said, “Now, John, you take a day off and go around and tell all the colored folks how you found the Lord. She used to be a nurse in the home way back in slavery days. The established order cannot be overthrown without having trouble. He drew the lines around that Garden; and when Adam and Eve crossed over the lines of God, thorns grew on roses. Back in those days they believed the Bible, and God called this nation into existence to be a witness to the world and to be true to the Word of God.
Of course, I am not talking about the Lord Jesus Christ Who was God-Man. “Neither is worshiped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.” Now, notice–this is an important verse–the twenty-sixth verse of the seventeenth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth” (in some of the best original manuscripts, the word “blood” is not there, but it is not important anyhow, because the thoughts are the same). I have never known lovelier and more wonderful people than the Chinese. She was a Christian Chinese woman educated in America. Now listen, the time has come when we ought to sit down and go to thinking some things through in this country. When your ancestors were slaves in the homes of these Southern people, they got a breath of culture that they could not have gotten even in the schoolrooms of America. I have said many times that the greatest preachers who have lived since the Apostolic days were the preachers of the South–the preachers who preached to the colored people. Take a day off and tell them.” Back in the old days when I began to preach, over sixty years ago, nearly every church I went to had a few old colored people who never did leave. We got converted here and want to stay here.” They were encouraged, and the white people helped build their churches. Now, you intelligent-thinking colored people know that you are with your friends. I remember how my wife’s grandmother said the happiest day she ever saw was when the slaves were freed. Let’s not try to kick the Bible off the center table. When they tell you that God Almighty is not the author of the boundaries of nations, you tell them that is wrong. We are trying to bring a few people from other lands here to Bob Jones University so we can educate them and help them. The first baby that was born was a murderer and killed his own brother. It is man’s rebellion (due to the fall) against a Holy God to overthrow the established order of God in this world. Do not let these religious liberals blowing their bubbles of nothing over your head get you upset and disturbed. You white folks and you black folks listening to me this morning, if you are Christians, we are one in Christ. Enemies are being made now that are dividing this country as it has never been divided in its history.
