Mankind prefers the company of certain individuals over others. In doing so, we fail to consider everyone an equal. This selfish approach is contrary to the Word of God and amounts to a sinful transgression of His will. When the Word lives in us, our Father in heaven becomes a father to us through the Spirit, and we treat all people as a brother or sister.
When racism, racial prejudice, and the associated conflicts among mankind cease to exist, we are in heaven, not here on earth. Evil lives here.
Either our lives here on earth prove God is love to us by living according to His will, or we don't care about His will (Ill-advised).
The Word is love too! The question is, do we care to live by the truth of it?
Remember there is no fear in the truth.
Take the free Lord's Porter course.

Gender and identity are terms associated with our human efforts to explain the diversity of our carnal self. A narrow definition yields a narrow field of gender identification, and a broad definition yields a widely diverse field of gender identification. Can both be right?
Jesus tells us our flesh cannot receive the things of the Spirit of God no matter how we classify, identify, or characterize it. So why does anyone get criticism for being them? Any and all, each and every, orientation of flesh does not change our need for the Spirit of God as God is love. God wants variety, diversity, and inclusion. He created the universe.
Does a narrow vision so boldly say we are the only humanoid life forms of the 100-200 billion galaxies NASA says are out there? God can pretty much do what He wants, and nobody knows what that is.
The issue we need to advance is this:
The unadulterated Word of God IS the only doorway to the Father who created it all, because it is His Word and His rule. That's the point. The Word is love, and the resurrection of Christ is a fact of human history. It wasn't made up. We all have to accept it, like it or not. Liking it is life, not liking the Word is death.
Life in Christ Matters!
Anyone curious to know the source and/or cause of harm from an injurious catastrophe, epidemic or pandemic, malady (disease or ailment), or anything that threatens human life must know it is rooted in evil, not God.
We should ask: "Does this same condition exist in heaven?". For example, does Covid-19 exist in heaven? No, God forbid, but why is it here on earth?
Earth is the dwelling place of evil as the enemy of God. A messenger of evil is an evil-doer taken captive by the evil source. We have all been an evil-doer, and we of ourselves cannot escape that fact. In addition, evil and all who choose the will of their flesh over the will of God shall be destroyed with evil by the wrath of God in the end. Thus, we need a way out of the doom. There is one way to escape, and there is an armor of God for us to withstand in the evil day.
Sincerity is defined as, "the quality of being free from pretense, deceit, or hypocrisy."
Corruption is defined as, "the process by which something, typically a word or expression, is changed from its original use or meaning to one that is regarded as erroneous or debased."
Anyone who does not convey the Word of God as originally written in truth and sincerity, corrupts the Word and is a worker of iniquity (i.e., worker of gross injustice or wickedness).
Who would, and why would, anyone change the text of the Bible to weaken it if the Word is our sword against evil?
Unless we have a Life in Christ, we are reprobate. The Bible says so: Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
We cannot enjoy a fruitful life unless we accept the truth, including:
1. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
2. The spirit/will of Jesus the man is the Word of God (everlasting spirit), and the human flesh of Jesus the man is the fulfillment of the prophesies of "God with us" fulfilling the Father's plan.
Do you care to learn of Him and draw closer to God knowing He will draw closer to you? If so, we must begin with knowledge and understanding of the Word. There is no other way.
All of us have experienced fear in this world at some point. Some of us claim the ability to overcome most fears by our own might, while others can only cope with it as we remain weighed down by it.
Knowing there is an evil antithesis to God as God is love, we realize fear is also the antithesis of love, faith, hope, trust, and all things loving and good. A life that fears less will not become a fearless (no fear) life without the Word because we are no match for the powers of evil on our own. Whereas Jesus, according to the will of God and the power in truth of the Word of God, defeated evil. By Him, we have the power to drive evil from us by a simple command according to the Word if we choose to live by it thereby claiming His victory over evil for ourselves. Here again, the Word gives us the right and power to a fearless life in Christ matters.
The Lord's Porter Bible study is founded on the New Testament of the King James Bible using only the words in it. There are no changes, additions, deletions, or special training needed of any kind to understand why the Word of God written in the Bible really is a perfect work.*
*(Please note, each and every one of the other books claiming Bible status as a "version" was derived from the King James Bible by changing the original words and destroying the continuity of the original text. Those other so-called "versions" cannot be reconciled by their own words, guaranteed. The King James Bible IS the only true Bible. It is not a "version". )
