"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2
“Here’s the reality,” Wise said. “The image of a white Jesus has been used to justify enslavement, conquest, colonialism, the genocide of indigenous peoples. There are literally millions of human beings whose lives have been snuffed out by people who conquered under the banner of a white god.”
Moreover, he said, “black folks can think Jesus is black and view Christ as black, but at the end of the day, the image that has been used to dominate Christianity in this world and on this planet is the white image.”
“The white Jesus, white god imagery has resulted in death. That’s something folks ought to deal with,” he added.
“ On November 5th, 2012, he (Tim Wise) has even publicly called on his followers to murder members of the Florida TEA Party . Despite his public call for murder, CNN continues to put him on the air. Tim Wise writes books saying that white people make too much money and should share with black people.” more here
And A & E got their drawers in a bunch over an elderly man repeating a Biblical scripture? Miley Cyrus shoved his buttocks into the crotch of an older, married male while sticking her nasty tongue out of her provocative clothed, almost naked body. A TV show entitled, “Naked and Afraid” on Discovery Chanel (we know what they’re “discovering”) and “Buying Naked” real estate on TLC…. both of which display naked people in the state of trying to relevant. Is this the America we’ve become?
Now to discover this fool of a fool, Tim Wise, and although he is burdened and no doubt leads a tortured existence for being a “white male”, has still managed to be a card carrying racist . . . to his own race. And to top it all, slanders in the Son of the living God.
Or perhaps not. Wise isn’t anything new, just the latest lost soul on CNN who is openly braggadocios of his hate of God, needless to say, something even Judas Iscariot was afraid to do. Wise even appears to relish his words, as he spites out slurs against Christ and Christianity. Doubtful he’d ever do the same regarding the “peaceful” Islamic religion, less he awakened one morning to find himself beheaded.
“Enslavement, conquest, colonialism, the genocide of indigenous peoples”... these deeds have transpired in the thousands of years of humanity, but haven’t be ‘promoted’ by Christians. But as is the usual case, the uneducated Wise twists together other religions with Christianity, so he can have something to rail against. A “white” God.
The fact is, we don’t need a ‘religion’ to encourage people to commit evil deeds — it’s part of the human nature. And his remarks, “millions of human beings whose lives have been snuffed out by people who conquered under the banner of a white god.”, are erroneous, inaccurate and “offensive”. Yet I haven’t heard CNN denounce his rants, calls for his “murder” or that he should exiled from planet earth . . . but, back to Phil Robertson, who quoted scripture. How is that going again?
Wise hasn’t been reprimanded, fired or on “reassignment” from CNN at last check. As we know, it’s acceptable to slander God and Christians . . . but not homosexuals, lesbians, trans whatevers and bi-whoevers. Well, whatever.
Wise is unwise. All twisted up over something he has no direct knowledge of — but then, that’s the usual case. It’s been going on for thousands of years, as those who hate what they don’t understand, continue to blame God and Jesus the Christ for their own deeds, self imposed rejection and denial of what they don’t want to know!
As for the Lords earthly skin color, through the ages, Jesus has probably been thought of as a white man. . . and there’s nothing wrong with that, except to the Liberal/ Progressives who find satisfaction in hatred. But the fact is, we don’t know His exact skin tone…. it’s not mentioned in the Bible and is unimportant! What we do know, is that he was from a line of the Hebrew people, carefully documented for generations, and that Hebrews have olive to white colored skin. But if He turns out to be purple, pink or black, that’s OK too. His mission was Salvation – – – NOT diversity of skin tone.
What is relevant, important and vital is: who is He. The Son of God who came to earth to teach, show the way to eternal life, die and rise again so we, the sinful lost, can have eternal life with Him . . . . and not eternal life with Satan in hell, which is the path we’re all on, our current destinations, if we reject His grace gift.
Wise is repugnant and makes me want to take a shower. But in truth, God is reaching out for him in grace and love, as He offers the only source of hope to end his tortured soul’s hate of all he finds so distasteful. The apostle Saul/ Paul found peace after persecuting and murdering followers of Christ. I hope Wise does to.
