Help these colored Christian not to get swept away by all the propaganda that is being put out now.
You will find that practically all the troubles we are having today have come out of the fact that men in many instances have ceased to believe in an authoritative Bible. Individually, Christian people in the South–white and black–through the years have been able to work together and to understand each other. Down in Southeast Alabama there were some slaves but not many; but they had the reconstruction days–hard days–and the time came along when people were having a hard time. If he is mean enough to mistreat one man, he is mean enough to mistreat another. The colored people in the South today are better off than they are anywhere else in the world. We Christians are children of God by faith in Jesus Christ. But every good, substantial, Bible-believing, intelligent, orthodox Christian can read the Word of God and know that what is happening in the South now is not of God. God Almighty had a purpose for the Jewish race; and for that purpose to be carried out, He had to separated them from among the nations of the earth. They have been scattered over the face of the earth, and they have kept their racial identity through the years. I believe that the Covenant that God made with Abraham holds good until this day, “I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee. God scattered them, but He brought them back to their homeland. Of course, in America we do not have a serious problem with the Orient.Of course, I am not talking about the Lord Jesus Christ Who was God-Man. “Neither is worshiped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things.” Now, notice–this is an important verse–the twenty-sixth verse of the seventeenth chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth” (in some of the best original manuscripts, the word “blood” is not there, but it is not important anyhow, because the thoughts are the same). I have never known lovelier and more wonderful people than the Chinese. She was a Christian Chinese woman educated in America. Now listen, the time has come when we ought to sit down and go to thinking some things through in this country. When your ancestors were slaves in the homes of these Southern people, they got a breath of culture that they could not have gotten even in the schoolrooms of America. I have said many times that the greatest preachers who have lived since the Apostolic days were the preachers of the South–the preachers who preached to the colored people. Take a day off and tell them.” Back in the old days when I began to preach, over sixty years ago, nearly every church I went to had a few old colored people who never did leave. We got converted here and want to stay here.” They were encouraged, and the white people helped build their churches. Now, you intelligent-thinking colored people know that you are with your friends. I remember how my wife’s grandmother said the happiest day she ever saw was when the slaves were freed. Let’s not try to kick the Bible off the center table. When they tell you that God Almighty is not the author of the boundaries of nations, you tell them that is wrong. We are trying to bring a few people from other lands here to Bob Jones University so we can educate them and help them. The first baby that was born was a murderer and killed his own brother. It is man’s rebellion (due to the fall) against a Holy God to overthrow the established order of God in this world. Do not let these religious liberals blowing their bubbles of nothing over your head get you upset and disturbed. You white folks and you black folks listening to me this morning, if you are Christians, we are one in Christ. Enemies are being made now that are dividing this country as it has never been divided in its history.But to my mind, no other mere human ever reached the height of greatness that Paul reached. “And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth. We were over in Formosa a few years ago and conferred an honorary degree on Generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, and I never met a greater man. When she finished her education, she went back to her home in China. And you colored people listening to me and you white people listening to me ought to keep your heads cool and your minds clear and your hearts warm and keep up these friendly relations we have had through the years. We do not mean that when we came over here we wiped out the line between races. We should have let the Africans stay in Africa instead of bringing them here for slaves, but did you colored people ever stop to think where you might have been if that had not happened? If you had not been brought over here and if your grandparents in slavery days had not heard that great preaching you might not even be a Christian. Just remember that the South went through reconstruction and had a hard time. She owned hundreds of them, and she said, “I was so happy. I say the colored people should have been left over in Africa, and we should have sent missionaries over there and got them converted. But we could not have converted them as fast that way; and God makes the wrath of men to praise Him. Now, I am appealing to you colored people and to you white people. You tell them it is perfectly clear in the Bible that God made of one blood all nations but that He also fixed the bounds of their habitation. We have two Chinese gentlemen teaching here in this school. They are intelligent men, and they understand what we are doing. Now I can sit down with any Christian Japanese, and Christian Chinese, and Christian African, etc., anywhere in the world and as a Christian have fellowships. A Christian relationship does not mean a marriage relationship. Do not let people run over you by coming along and talking about the Universal Fatherhood of God and the Universal Brotherhood of man. We have the Jew (a segregated race), the Gentile (and this includes everybody else), and the Church of God (meaning the Body of Christ, as it is used here). If you are yellow or red or whoever you are, if you are Christians, we are one in Christ. We are facing the greatest dangers we have ever faced, and the religious liberals are riding in now on the crest of a wave of what seems to be popular.Keep us by Thy power and use us for They glory, for Jesus’ sake.
