Ok. This is a decent question, so I'll let this be the last response I give in this thread....

No. I am not blind. Identity is indeed a powerful tool used by leftists. You are correct that they pit one group against the other. And furthermore, you are correct in that there was a long time in this country when the power of ideas could overcome the power of identity. That time has passed. Here's why

The immigration policy of the US from 1790's basically until 1965 was to allow "free white people of good moral character". This resulted in a much more homogenous society that what we have now. Homogenous societies have much higher levels of trust among the citizens. This allows for higher levels of operation where we can value things like ideas.

In 1965, the US signed its own death sentence by altering the immigration policy to allow for a lot of non-white immigration. Since then the US has become more and more of a heterogeneous society. In any heterogeneous society you will see trust levels decline among the citizens. In this situation you will invariably see the rise of identity politics. Things naturally turn to us versus them. My team versus their team. Lower level needs are all that can be provided within the system. "Him got stuff. Me want stuff." So politicians come in and say "Me take his stuff and give some to you". As things further decline this will become more apparent.

What we're seeing happening today is political lines being drawn along racial lines. The democrats are becoming the party of the anti-whites. Blacks, latinos, jews all unite within the democrat party. You're also going to start seeing racial migration as trust levels further decline. White flight is real.

Civil war is probably unavoidable at this point. And higher order notions like rule of law and limited government have become an impossibility. Witness our fake President. But in the meantime just try to acknowledge that "identity politics" is not inherently of the left. It's just that the left has been the only ones using it. If the right ever wants to win again, they need to embrace the concept of identity rather than ignore it and hope that it goes away.
Let truth be told. The fact is that, if you are not a native American, you are an immigrant. ( irrespective of how this word is defined in the Constitution). Dispossessing the weak of his property rather than helping him as the bible enjoins us, is not acceptable spiritually. Biblically, it is only the Jews that inherited a land which God gave them after driving out the original inhabitants because of their ungodliness. Moreover, the earth is the Lord's and everything therein, (speaking on a more spiritual sense). Think about this and have more love for every creature of God including your enemies. Love as you love yourself and you will have peace in yourself irrespective of what is going on around you.

What does the scripture say? ---- Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory but in lowliness of mind, let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things but everyman also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 2:3 -5)

Be careful for nothing but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving , let your requests be made known unto God. And, the peace of God which passes all understanding shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise think on these things. (Philippians 4 : 6 -8)

Just occupy your mind with these thoughts, your tune with change.

just my candid opinion.

This thread is way out of line and any Buffon who says racism is not evil or a sin clearly doesn't know the word of God. hate is the same as murder Jesus said and just like there are different things to describe anger like:

Wrath, malice, clamor, and hatred

There are other descriptions of hate:

racism, jealousy, ridicule, bigoted, and mockery. All of those things ARE NOT CHRIST LIKE.

I am shocked by the comment by many here who say they are Christians yet have said foolish ignorant things because they hate. This thread needs to be closed before those individuals are banned.

Racism isn't actually a biblical word. There's only one race according to the Bible (Acts 17). The correct biblical word is partiality, and it's a sin to be partial based on skin tone or physical characteristics, or wealth/poverty.

Partiality is a better word to describe this sin.

By the way, BLM is a racist organization because it uses "whiteness" and "white" as slanderous terms, and their fundamental way of viewing the world is through a racial lense.

I find it funny those who want to appear so biblical sound yet want to wah dah a term like racism and say it is not a biblical word YET the action clearly is not Christ-like. Gay is not in the Bible either yet it refers today as a descriptive term for homosexuality which TOO is not in the Bible But seen as a sin.

There are various ethnicities, and partiality can be shown to one ethnicity over another. "Gay" isn't really a good word to use because it implies those people are happy, and in reality they are living a sinful lifestyle and their conscience witnesses against them.

all that said really doesn't mean anything because of the context of the word and how it is perceived today and that what is perversion which to change something that was good into something that is bad as the word " gay".

Now the term Racism and the action of it are not Christ-like. And the term has been a label to many who are not racist to control the narrative and stop anyone who has provided the truth about the real issue. Politically the term has been misused and weaponized against those one disagrees with.

My question is: how can we effectively reach out to those who are falling for this BLM, anti-American, LGBQT, devoid of morals world view? Honestly, I'm torn and I truly would like to hear some ideas. Some scripture that comes to mind that makes me conflicted is:

"And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?" -Matthew 7:3

So we must speak the truth in love:

"If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres." -1 Corinthians 13:1-7

So with those two verses in mind, I wonder what is the correct way to confront those who are supporters or members of these groups? I'm afraid with the tensions so high these days surrounding these matters that things can turn violent quickly.

I really like Ray Comfort's approach as it is very convicting yet loving. If you haven't seen him I highly suggest watching some: https://www.youtube.com/user/thewayofthemaster

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Things can be called racism without actually being hateful or bigoted. The propagandists have done a fine job twisting words and meanings. Really what we're talking about is prejudice based on ancestry. Is it sinful to have prejudice? Not in all cases. Someone brought up the Amalek example from the Old Testament. Someone else brought up the concept of children of Satan versus children of God (tares and wheat). Love should be in your heart with all things, but being called racist because you oppose and rebuke a tradition of evil practices within a lineage doesn't mean that your prejudice is not righteous. If it was a practice within a tribe to sacrifice children to their blood god, you may rebuke that but may be deemed a racist in retaliation. Being counted as a racist does not necessitate that you are actually evil or antichrist. Corrective action should never be done out of anger (love thy enemy) but that doesn't forbid Christians from taking corrective actions and measures against evil doers. Would you not throw a murderer in jail with the hopes of rehabilitation? What if someone called you a "racist" for suggesting that there should be law and order (consequences) to immoral behaviour? What if someone called you "racist" because you said child sacrifices were wrong?

The entire "racism" narrative is a malicious word game designed to disarm good people from doing the right thing. The real enemy here is confusion, misdirection, and deception. The real question is who is pulling the strings? And why? A simple dismissal of "racism = hate" or "ridicule = hate" is a shamefully oversimplified picture of what is going on which in turn creates more fertile darkness for further confusion and misdirection. Not everyone uses "racism" to express the same thing. It might be more fruitful just to throw out that word entirely from conversation and explore the concept through an entirely different framework of descriptive language. Fighting for truth requires us to confront and address confusion.

"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints." - 1 Corinthians 14:33

I actually caught parts of Tucker Carlson this evening, who pointed out that the founder of BLM took money donated to "Black lives matter" and bought a 1.4 million dollar home in a predominantly white neighborhood. If these people really believed that white were racist that move would not have happened. She bought more homes I dont know what areas they were in.

What scam artists
They want to exterminate white people so it's part of the agenda.

The Leftist Agenda Race Baiting, Divide And Conquer, don't be deceived.

The Leftist are in the vast minority, they must divide to conquer, they are out numbered

The Leftist fake news media, through smoke and mirrors would have you believe they are the majority, not so

They use the commie tactics of Saul Alinsky in (Rules For Radicals) in creating a common enemy, and this currently is based upon race known as identity politics.

Hillary and Obama both followed Alinsky
They are all liars. And those of us who have studied up on the origins of the left knows that they are anti-christs too. Freemasons operating in the background all along. Anyone can check up on for example a certain freemason by name of Count Kalergi and his writings and have a look for themselves.

Other than that the left used to say for years "race doesn't matter" and "we're all equal", all of a sudden race matters a whole lot - if you are non-white and the blame on the white race for all the evils in the world matters even more. Stinking hypocrisy. Whites are becoming today's blacks.

There are many secret societies in the play, the Roman Catholic Church in the Knights Of Columbus and its various orders dwarfs freemasonry in the worlds evil

It's a Satanic plot, and I see the future Antichrist being a Jew, and the false prophet being the Pope, my take

Saints keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. There is no left or right. The principalities of the air are at work and the spirit of anti christ has set the stage.
But God is still on the throne and still control. So what is he telling us ? What needs to be done?
The smoke screen is fake news and political failures. The real issue is a coming judgement on us all.
The lord has started his shakings.

Amen!! And Right on!
"opposition to racism" is the justification for the destruction of Christianity and the genocide of Christians. It's a satanic moral developed by Leon Trotsky. If you preach that racism is a sin, you aren't a Christian, you're a communist and you are aiding in the destruction of Christianity and the genocide of European races. If you are guilty of this then you aren't a Christian, you are evil.

The fact that "racism" is nothing but a con by the left ought to be obvious to you. The theory that whites are racist by birth is explicitly racist. If you're white and you believe this con it's because you have been demoralized and taught to hate yourself and your history. You are a danger to yourself and others and you need to repent for being the enemy of Christ and his people.

If your preacher teaches you that you have to repent for the sin of racism then he has the spirit of the antichrist. Whether his error is due to ignorance or demon worship is irrelevant. That teacher is destroying the souls of his flock to appease the satanic cult that's overthrown our government.

Christians have been enslaved to degeneracy, and "racism" is only one of the evils that we have embraced as truth. Wake up
If you don't think there is anything wrong with racism, why would it bother you if people accuse whites of being racist by birth? I don't agree with that theory, btw. It's racist.

Generally, racism is a bad thing. If God's decrees against Amalekites, for example are 'racist', then there may be some sanctified racism.

And some things that are called 'racist' are not inherently evil. We all simplify information in our minds. We learn that people from China eat rice. That's a stereotype, but it generally true of much of the population. Most people do not think it is racist to say Chinese people eat rice. But in the US if you say blacks eat watermelon or fried chicken, then that's racists. I didn't know that blacks eating fried chicken was supposed to be a stereotype since I am from the south, and white people like fried chicken, too. I am not sure if blacks eat any more watermelons than white southerners. Blacks took southern cooking, or rather Soul food, which has some unique recipes, to other parts of the country. For some reason, people out what a lot of Blacks eat if you aren't white is supposed to be 'racist', even if there is some truth to it. And of course, not all blacks eat fried chicken.

The US is really touchy when it comes to race, especially stereotypes about blacks. Imitating Chinese accents might get you in a little trouble with some people who are uber sensitive about race. But no one cares if you imitate white accents like Russian, German, French, or Irish. If you want to start 'white history day', that's considered racist, but Irish history is okay, I guess.

Generally, though, the problem with racism is hating another race, instead of loving your neighbor. Now, God is calling all men to repent, including Gentiles.

The philosophy of some southern racists about race, mixing their racism with religion, isn't Biblical. The Bible does not forbid black Cushites from marrying white Japethites, for example.

Therr is so much mis information in this post its amusing!

Racism is definitely a thing. I think the term is bandied about too much though these days by the ultra woke

Biblically it is a sin to hold.prejudice or partiality to anyone on account of their background as James mentions in the bible.

Treat everyone with love and compassion as Jesus did and you can't go wrong
