I am NOT!! Don’t you tell me that I am prejudice, it is not true!
WE ARE ALL PREJUDICE IN SOME AREA OF LIFE. THESE MUST BE ROOTED OUT IF WE ARE GOING TO LOVE PEOPLE AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORLD FOR JESUS.
Definition: French word – damage, injury, pre-judge – it is when we like or dislike a person without knowing them and creating injury to their worth.
The first thing we think about when this topic comes up is that of color and or race. Without question this type of prejudice is INJURY to each other and to the Gospel message. PREJUDICE IS FAR MORE THAN JUST RACE OR COLOR.
People are prejudice against:
i. Social groups (if you do not hang out with my crew)
ii. Class groups (poor against the rich, rich against the poor)
iv. Styles of dress
vi. Geographical areas
vii. Age prejudice
viii. Disability prejudice
ix. Religious prejudice (Muslim and Christian)
x. Weight….. THE LIST IS NEVER ENDING…
Prejudices are learned, not born…..
WE ALL HAVE SOME PREJUDICE THAT WE DEAL WITH IN HOW WE VIEW OTHER PEOPLE – COMPARING THEM TO WHOSE STANDARD?
James 2:8-9, If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; 9 but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors.
TOMORROW….SEE HOW JESUS BROKE THE POWER OF PREJUDICE IN THE WORD OF GOD!
