Will and Roy and their guests take a look at the ways racism hurts those involved.
This is the Truth Network welcome to mannitol Rocky by T8W CM is talking and walking Christian men's ministry where they are devoted to breaking down the walls of race, age, and challenging them to take their God assigned as our host will Hardy and Roy Jones Junior, a black guy and a white guy, welcome back Ms. Oakley and I will Hardy and the black guy we get to guess with this again today for the second half of this topic about racism and racial divide, which is totally totally destroying the United States of America and we are just voices attempting to let God bless us to reach someone out there who need to hear about this topic because they might be riding around thinking that I'm not a racist. Never happen to me. I don't know any racist people but if you measure yourself by your actions or by your standard, then you always going be right where Lamont has goodwill to rationalize or write will and Satan as we talk, talk, site news is that it's what I think one of his greatest tools gets distracted gets is convinced that were in my position and when life but Fremont heart but the things that I won't ask about in the drone pictured in last week showed about something happening on the road nothing, through some of the components that he's witnessed and Michael. Michael works as a public defender in Guilford County and I can share. While we were on the getting ready for the show we came up that part of this racism is your discrimination piece is so so blatant that we've just accepted an SOS clerical slow fade and that we just accepted it.
Over time, and we just become numb to it. If we just saw in the light actually was. It would be shocking to Michael many good points will you if you were walking down the street with an AR 15 would understand Second Amendment rights, you would swear that if someone questioned about new pushback. But if a black man walks down the growth AR 15 specialist and what neighborhood is in these can be questioned and targeted for a different type of persecution alcoholic or questioning or just basically discriminated against because color in fact he could be doing the same thing that I would be doing but would be viewed differently, so Michael and Jerome don't want to open up you will share with us to the bit about the military piece but also watches [that's what I will open mic time here. You just tell me what's on your heart got this to be God's words come through your heart would only thing scripted, so we been very clear the dispatcher heart on the show with you folks all right is Roy stated in his introduction that I didn't care too much for what the how did we get past it seaweed and span two hours two days talk about the problem. We need to be talk about the solutions on how I got over. I had put myself around start understanding and through the help of God why God is no different than a blank – yes light doesn't get some white guys good like dressing bandwagon that what I'm saying is that when we put God's word in there and we know that we doing kingdom work in that church work no matter what color you are.
You just all about getting your assignment done so in the process of doing your assignment. You don't care what color they decide not working for your good. You work for the good of the kingdom. I would just follow up on that you you have to get uncomfortable. You have to be in situations that you normally would not be in because what happens is, God sees Roy, me and anyone else through the blood of Christ. If you believe is right and so is his completed work on Calvary that allows us to be equal at the foot of the cross is so last week you talk about stepping on toes but is not about being politically correct is not being biblically correct. The Bible will take us to a place of correctness.
You know throughout Scripture we see that the believer broke down racial barriers. Philip went to the Samaritan went to the Ethiopian unit Christ himself engaged the Samaritan woman at the well saw beyond race to get to the heart of matter which is that we all need to be redeemed and we all need the redemption of Jesus's blood to get us beyond a man foolishness which is racism a man a man as you listen to this program discounted by this listing and Jerome makes good point and Michael, but the fellowship in Christ. The blood cries of this past August is how many people are you socializing with that don't look like the people you go to church with the don't look like you are you working with it don't look like you shopping with it don't look like hey I am speaking here and one thing I've always said I'm speaking from man of experience, not with an opinion so hey to my life that I was grew up in the 70s and 80s, late 60s and 70s understand little bit what would all because I was just coming to school desegregation was come about.
But here's the piece. If we don't step forward and like I think Michael said God is perfectly capable in the supernatural paraphrasing in the early show. If we don't step forth in the natural and allow him to change us and start doing something about it. It's never going to do any methods of going happen but if we do step forward in the natural Hill come up side of us and supernatural. He will empower us to level we had no idea things could be accomplished with everyone's efforts in a loving heart for each other….
A challenge on all of the list.
The purpose in their heart to go out and find someone that don't look like them in this fellowship, and you will find out through conversation, you have a lot in common.
So the commonality is. You also will be believers. A man there is neither Jew know Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female, for we are all one in Christ Jesus. If we cannot accept God's word as the final authority then were going to accept everything else.
And this is what has us at this place that we are at right now, so go spectrally safe. Quite often, seeking first the kingdom of God is the very first objective, seek ye first the kingdom of Matthew 633 yet we do that then everything else falls in line behind it. So for seeking first the kingdom of God. God has no separation.
God has a racism God has discrimination said love your neighbor as yourself into drums point earlier. You gotta love yourself to know to love others but here's the thing.
If you just if you stay in the same mode stay the same functionality stay the same way of doing things.
Nothing is ever going to change nothing is ever going to change in the last piece of this is when I get the full blessing of God as long as were out of alignment with God. You cannot receive the full blessing that God has in store for us that's that's been the body.
If were out of alignment with God and this is why the word of God. Again we we talked about in in the first that the first show in Proverbs 16. Later on down the next verse. The chapter I believe this verse either 10 or 11 that says when a man's ways please the Lord. He will make even his enemies to be at peace with them. So if that man is your enemy, or he is projecting this racism ideology that he's holding onto that he's he probably saying to himself, not a racist, but how you respond to him in the way God says I will change his attitude. I will change his ideology. But you have to believe me God. In order for me to do that in him is certain is an issue of faith and commitment to the faith know those scriptures that speak right to what God wants to accomplish, and I live. Jerome gave a challenge. Well, this would like to back up 100 times this hey if you work the first time.
Don't quit because guess what is out there to steal, kill and destroy us if you are trying to kingdom work is going to distract and still is going to go destroy it. If you want to screw so well child wants. But it just didn't work.
This didn't work. This felt very uncomfortable and somewhat angry. Their business a little about going over folks ready comfort zone. Christ never sat still and was always moving. Hey, if they give us even guess what he did moved all is a faith walk is a forward law is so is absolutely nothing. I'll keep going right Jerome, if you started and it doesn't work go find somebody up to say thank you for your time. This is not what we need to be well keep moving out of love, say those kind of things and move on. Goodyear still evening, even for the movement known.
You continue to have little even if the person still does not like you just like Lynn hot coals only had absolutely asked so love this play, that's right. Always keep love going full run and nothing is love covers a multitude of faults. So, whatever faults did we see even in our sales we still in overcoming by continuing to show low demand way folks are going to take a break here just for just about a minute and half and will be right back with you.
We appreciate you turning to part two. Again, we are we are excited to have Michael's room with his today if you been listed. We just want to challenge you reflect back on what your life looks like. When you stand before God to say, look father I have done what you asked me to do is say I know you did.
My child see your efforts. If you can't say that it's never too late.
It's never too late to start working for the kingdom and start far across to the higher level. So that's what will encourage your we love you folks were just trying to say let's let's make a difference because we don't make a difference.
Satan wins he knows were headed home for following Christ. If he keeps us distracted effective. Guess what will be right back some 10 SEM and would love to have you join their community of men for breakfast every first and third Friday of every month and Bible discussions and fellowship.

Welcome back to man talk and we have been talking about the subject of racism and we been talking a little bit about the problem of racism, situations and circumstances we may have been in an experience racism.
Now we want to close this last half of the show and talking about some of the solution. Some of the things that we can do as members of the body of Christ were talking to an audience out there of the individuals who know that they are born again in their blood wash and the only way to heaven because we can talk about things like this all day, but we have to demonstrate then we have to have to be action oriented, that we will underestimate practical ways to make a difference or so. Michael Welch leadoff drawing rescue behind that in your heart, with what's got put on reminder some practical ways we can start with the wheels moving forward motion. One of the first things I believe you have to do is purpose in your heart and be intentional about engaging people you know you do. We've lost the art of conversation with Allstate auto just reaching across the table to a person that may not look like you let me talk to you let me have a conversation with you, ever.
We are doing that you John is not here with us tonight, but we have fellowship with one another with taken the mask off with being transparent and when you engage people instead of just walking past people whether it's in the marketplace to workplace the neighborhood we need to be more intentional about just engage in. That's great, Michael, Jerome, what about you come from behind the walls get out into the into the hedges and highways could just sing in the song. Lord, send me go, but we're not going. I'm a soldier in the Army of the Lord but were not marching nowhere so hopefully you understand and you can sing the latter's will is still a lot, so let us even quit singing those songs also live in those old I just exist and look them up. They Christ isn't divided. That's right, you know, so there's no white Christian is that Christian there is no Hispanic Christian, there is the body of Christ and if we say I don't understand that then we call him a liar and we know he's not alike know is not so are you a lamb or goat is that they will come.
Absolutely we will say, depart from. You never knew you ran into the gates and into the kingdom of heaven. If he knew if he knows if he knew us when we were here and to Jerome's point. Michael's point and I think this is this this hits back to the heart of the church folks. Most people check the box. A lot of people just check the box on Sunday and you first talk about was the Monday through Saturday face look like with this if someone at church so you alum on the marketplace on Monday or Tuesday so you behave the way you behave. Would they know that your follower of Christ, by the way you're behaving not by what you are attempting say maybe by what your same invasive, but if were not living it out and were not walking down the were just a façade. We know what got says about lukewarmness spew out of his mouth. And I think to Jerome and Michael's point. Let's have a conversation, let's talk about things we can do to make a difference is how the conversation will start the start. But step out in the natural and let God take you from the supernatural, always asking us to do is to make that first step. He'll take it from there.
And if you got the Holy Spirit in your heart and in going nowhere in this post immovable injustices still right will try Zeno's and let you know if you and if you are part of a men's group right now and and your men's group is quote unquote active, ask yourself the question, are you really doing anything quite quite conversations have you had and what connections have you made to go out and visit a local fellowship of people who don't look like you, what are they doing.
Find out what they're doing connect with them.
You don't have to reinvent something when God is already got some things in motion so look around your neighborhood. The places where you going to your local church body and seek individuals out on what they don't look for bulletins and see how we can connect how you can be a vital part of a ministry that might be active but really not doing anything for the cause of Christ. I would just add you know we gotta make mistakes, even we tried to come up against one another and interact with one another will say things that may, we should see what is okay we keep moving forward. You don't let those mistakes. Those gaps. You continue moving forward in Christ Jesus whom a man is continue to walk in love. This will be your biggest to your toolbox when that you can continue in that love will go conversation going change attitudes going change in your group is going change because they will not add to the kingdom. While we that's exactly right drawer slot.
That's the whole point. That's the great commission is you guys were talking subtest capital. My heart was that in these member sit in the front of her to talk about this. If you're part of a conversation should be taken place you step away from home and don't be afraid to call it out and love, say, look, this is not what followers of Christ should be talking is not what follower Christ should be doing. This is not how followers of Christ should be acting and I know that people listen. Today this on both sides of the fence. Murphy, black, white know that whatever everybody's got a joke about the other side.
Everybody's heard a joke about. I still still hear stuff in my heart that is going on for years. The people say I watch body language people and their walk away Naveed and Bill share this with you of call stuff out and I love it's okay, say hey that's wrong that that is wrong and I think we would talk about this melting pot.
The skin color may not of melted but they what has melted is the fact that that the hearts of melted because we got so politically correct it's okay to fend one group of people is not okay for another group and we as Christians Christ followers know them talk about their but if your same sentence offensive here sums offensive step as a follow Christ.
That's wrong skews minimal step away from this Michael have had this conversation in folks.
You'll be amazed that we set the standard how people around you will start to act and they may not be a believer yet, but there if you as the believer don't stand on your standards. How can we, how can we ever witness about the blood of Christ, and also say void in order for you to understand what those standards are, and we, as born-again believers were standing on kingdom standards we have to know what they are not in know what they are.
You gotta do what second Timothy chapter 2 in verse 15 says study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. So if if I am rightly dividing the word and I understand the standard because I'm studying, and the Holy Spirit is instilling in me what I need in order take out to the world right… It I just don't have more time will isolate any more time you have time to eat well yeah exactly as you know an interesting thing.
And so my said brother David, you find time due to old doesn't matter how busy you are, you'll find time to do things you wanted. If Christ loved us enough to send his son to die for us to die force. Who are we to say I don't have in our day, or 30 missing data.
Talk with you father. I don't have time to to see him read. I don't have time to meditate on your what you're trying to change my life. Folks, this a wake-up call. If you don't believe what were telling turn on the news for 15 minutes in your seat you see a black man's been shot that was unarmed. You go see the kids been raped but no matter what color, that person is you go see a child has done something to a parent because I didn't get their way. Same as running loose folks. You've got to listen to what were telling and if you as the man. This goes back to man talk radio men. It's your responsibility is not your wives responsibility is not your mother's responsibility. It's your responsibility a man a man is like to share this in. If you don't have time to invest in the mail.
You will have time watching it mail make all bad that Matt's deep breath there restless Chris go back over that case you won't listen if you don't have time to invest in the man mail you will see that male or man to time make time is withdrawn.
Since I don't invest in that individual as it was a follow Christ a man that loves that individual impotence is going up behind bars. Is that correct and how how are we to show the love of Christ. If we don't understand that we have been loved by him. So if we if we understand and know that we have been loved by him and we understand that all of the work that he did was to benefit me while I'm here on the earth and to to so I could be in right standings with him and put else is there left for me, except to follow my own way, to be proved by society to be shackled by Satan and I'm reminded, you know, during the man summit how he had to change the balls and then after while they were cut got so pretty and God set them free in this is what we're saying we want you free in Christ, not to be bound by Satan. Satan has no dominion over the children of God.
And this is this is the message we want to leave with you set be set free by the power of God in the name of the Lord Christ, we thank you for doing this.
