Former West Indies cricketer, Michael Holding, has spoken out strongly against racism. He rightly did so. Acts 17:26 tells us that God "made out of one man EVERY nation of men to dwell on the entire surface of the earth." Of course, "EVERY nation" includes people of ALL races. Since all races came from one source, they are all EQUAL in the sight of the Most High God, Jehovah. (Psalm 83:18) Hence, NO race of people is better or superior than another race. God accepts people from all races as Acts 10:34, 35 prove. Black people and white people are equal. Satan the Devil, "who is misleading the entire inhabited earth," influences many people to think that one race is superior to another race. (Revelation 12:9) He always opposes God.

So if we are racist, then we are actually siding with the Devil. If you are a racist, pray to God sincerely and ask him to help you get rid of feelings of racism. (Psalm 65:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:17) Work hard at loving people of all races. God will end racism when he destroys all wicked ones, including racists who refuse to change, and make the earth into a Paradise. (Psalm 37:9-11, 29; Ecclesiastes 1:4; Luke 23:43) Satan, the evil promoter of racism, will also be destroyed. (Romans 16:20) It is wise to learn the TRUTH about Jehovah God and his Son, Jesus Christ, and do the will of God. (John 17:3; 1 Timothy 2:3, 4; Matthew 7:21) If we do, God will allow us to enter into the Paradise where racism will NEVER exist. Simeon James
