“I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.” – 1 Corinthians 1:10
It’s important now more than ever that we seek unity within our country. There are so many things that our country needs to address that worrying about small differences become a distraction. Abraham Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself, cannot stand.” Although slavery is no longer practiced, racism is still prevalent. Until we stop accusing people of racism just for disagreeing on issues while letting true racism reign, we will never be able to move forward.
Black Religious Leaders Say Trump Not Racist
“Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” – 2 Corinthians 13:11
On Monday, President Donald Trump met with a group of 20 inner-city pastors in a private meeting at the White House.
After the meeting, members of religious leaders met outside the White House and spoke to reporters. Among them was the founder and President of the Coalition of African American Pastors, Reverend Bill Owens and the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., Alveda King.
When asked if Trump was racist, Owens said, “I find that hard to believe, considering the things he’s done for the black community. Positive things for the black community.”
King Praises Trump Support For Black Community
“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” – Colossians 3:14
In so many Bible verses love is the remedy that brings harmony and unity.
“The president is concerned about the whole nation. About everybody in the nation,” King said. “So I want us to remember, that we’ve been designed to be brothers and sisters. One member of the human race. Not separate races. The same blood.”
“We can see. We can see a troubled America, but we can see a blessed America. The employment rates are up in every community, including the black community,” King said.
“The Historically Black Colleges and Universities under this president are being blessed. The babies in the womb, the sick and poor and elderly are being blessed.”
