Too bad the British didn't share your same values. There are 59 countries or territories that celebrate independence from the UK each year. The Brits put a lot of merit into ethnicity at their own demise. Look at Germany. Why is it we still judge by nationality and skin color?

Yes, it IS too bad, and profiling by race or color is just as bad. Thank you for your support.

that is what the churches teach. just because man is racist.. doesn' t mean God is .. just because men sin you dont and can't realisticly negate God's multiple blessings.
now Jesus is a man but he has God's values not mens values.. he will weight and measure men by what they do not what they look like..
you are saying a daisy is worthless unless it is a genetic rose and that all flowers are roses or they are worthless. or that a lilly isn't more precious for it's symbolism than a daisy is for it's symbolism. God made us different like he made different kinds of flowers.. you"theology of race" is denying God made flowers of many kinds.. birds of many kind.. and animals of many kids.. for his reasons and his purposes.. stop that! God is not fallen men.

you must learn to value what God values.

racist and antiraciest.. see things like you do..both ways are wrong as hell is between mans ears..

. But that isn't how God sees mankind.. he sees them in tribes and clans and peoples and nations..
one is NOT valued more or less by that nationality tribe or people.. but each man will be weighed by his own deeds and rewarded by such .. not that of his race, tribe , clan .. or people. But yes your inheritance and your rewards will be based on your tribes and clans and people and nations..
just because man had unequal balances and scales of value in weighing the value of a man.... doesn't mean that God in any way thinks as men do!
Father is not a man that you can apply your ideas to him.
