WHEN PEOPLE WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT THEIR HISTORY TRY TO DICTATE HOW OTHERS SHOULD FEEL ABOUT THEIRS…

From the Washington Redskins, to the Cleveland Indians, to Black History, to the Confederacy…few things provoke anger and division like adjusting the narrative of history.

However, it’s unfortunate that many of those who are so passionate about their own history and culture want to dictate how others should feel about theirs.

Americans have the freedom to honor what’s important to them privately.

But, when it comes to public institutions and entities, many of which were established when America tolerated a clearly biased and insensitive narrative, just as when Jesus came and threatened many Jewish traditions when He established the New Covenant…there comes a time for change. (Whew that was a long sentence).

Mark 7:5-8 (NKJV)

5 (A)Then the Pharisees and scribes asked Him, “Why do Your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but eat bread with unwashed hands?”

He answered and said to them, “Well did Isaiah prophesy of you (B)hypocrites, as it is written:

(C)‘This people honors Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’

8 For laying aside the commandment of God, you hold the tradition of men—[a]the washing of pitchers and cups, and many other such things you do.”

Public institutions and entities shape thoughts and attitudes for generations. As society corrects it’s wrongs…changes must be made.

Honor and celebrate as you wish on your t-shirt, bumper sticker or property, but public property and institutions and entities must consider what is offensive to all citizens of America…not just those who feel they own the narrative

BE BLESSTIFIED!

    1. Hello there! When He fulfilled the law. When He established the New Covenant. The establishment felt threatened .
      Jeremiah 31:31-34
      English Standard Version
      The New Covenant
      31 (A)“Behold, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when I will make (B)a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, 32 not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when (C)I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, (D)though I was their husband, declares the Lord. 33 (E)For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: (F)I will put my law within them, and I will write it (G)on their hearts. (H)And I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 34 And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ (I)for they shall all know me, (J)from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For (K)I will forgive their iniquity, and (L)I will remember their sin no more.”
