Full of Trouble

July 21, 2014

Regardless of how much time has elapsed, things still remains the same. In our society, there are still two set of rules. The sign of “colored and white” have been removed from entrances and public water fountains, but the evil have been embedded into the hearts of many.

Ray Nagin has been sentenced to ten (10) years for receiving bribes. Burrell Ellis is fighting for his freedom for receiving bribes. Dr. Beverly Hall is fighting cancer and the State for her freedom in the Atlanta Educator Cheating Scandal. Another official is able to resign due to health reason to avoid indictment of receiving bribes. How many other officials have received bribes and still hold office or walking around free?

If accepting bribes is wrong, it should it be wrong for everyone. When the Country can support one (1) rule, we will see a decrease in crimes and hatred.  If the Country had one (1) rule for everyone, there would be no division; it is only when we have different rules for different people. The Country don’t have one problem, we have many.

Many people are being held back from promotions; pay raises and jobs because that same sign from the 50’s still resonates in their minds and hearts. The sins of the father have visited their children. Until we can judge a person on their character rather than their skin color, there will always be division among us. While we are thinking with the carnally mind, we have become more like the parable of the Pharisees. Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others.  “God, I thank You that I am not like other men—extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector”. (Luke 18:9,11b) Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.

Therefore you are inexcusable, O man, whoever you are who judge, for in whatever you judge another you condemn yourself; for you who judge practice the same things.  But we know that the judgment of God is according to truth against those who practice such things.  And do you think this, O man, you who judge those practicing such things, and doing the same, that you will escape the judgment of God? For there is no partiality with God. (Romans 2: 1-3, 11)

“Man who is born of woman is of few days and full of trouble”. (Job 14:1)

  1. Great post Pastor Fairley. I hear the voices of those who fought the fight still “Lift every voice and sing til earth and heaven ring, ring with the harmonies of liberty….” “Lest we forget”
