United As One People
As we bid November goodbye and good riddance might I suggest we embrace the month of December and the upcoming New Year together as brothers and sisters united as one people after all we are all members of one giant race – the human race collectively called “Mankind”? God created all living creatures “after their kind” and he created them “Male and Female” so they could procreate.
The first recorded murder in the bible was when Cain became jealous and so angry that he killed his brother Abel. (Gen 4:8)
From the days of Adam and Eve to the days of Noah before the flood mankind lived together. It was the family of Noah who survived the flood.
After the flood the earth was divided (Gen 10:25) and the clans of Noah’s sons were scattered over the earth. (Gen 10:32)
The entire world had one language and a common speech. As the people moved eastward they found a suitable place and decided to make a city with a tower that reached to the heavens so they could make a name for themselves, or they feared they would be scattered over the face of the earth. (Gen 11:1-4)
The Lord came down to see the city and the tower they were building and said as one people they speak the same language and have begun doing this, there is nothing they plan to do that will be impossible for them. He confused their language so they could not understand each other and scattered them over all the earth and they stopped building the city. (Gen 11:5-8)
It is not surprising that from the days of Adam until present day man continues to become angry and in fits of rage uses whatever means available to kill other men. The saying “Money makes the world go round” gives credence to what the bible says:
“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”(1 Timothy 6:10)
Today there are 195 countries and more than 5,000 ethnicities worldwide. Men fight men for power and control with division by class, finances, religion, race or ethnic origin, even common sense versus no sense and often throw money in order to buy compliance. Hard working men and women are vilified while the non-working see getting on government assistance as being justified, it’s deserved or owed for services not earned.
In the United States we have been divided into 5 basic ethnic groups – White, Hispanic, Black, Asian, Mixed, and Other. Yet when you drill down you will find people referring to themselves as – African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Native-Americans, Asian-Americans and White-Americans or Caucasian-Americans. Isn’t it time we start seeing men and women and refer to ourselves simply as Americans? Does the naturalization oath say anything about becoming anything except an American citizen? It’s like getting wet – either you are or you are not. – I am the Real Truckmaster!
